District Administration March 2018 - 1

While attending a
conference for college
leaders a few months
ago, I found myself
seated at dinner
next to Rudy Crew,
former head of
JD Solomon
schools in New York Editorial Director
City, Miami-Dade
and other big systems. Today, Crew
is president of Medgar Evers College
in Brooklyn, and he told me how
the connections between his college
and local high schools are improving
education at all levels. Senior Associate
Editor Matt Zalaznick went to
Brooklyn to explore those connections,
and his report on partnerships between
school districts and colleges appears on
page 32.
Also in this issue we report on best
practices in professional development for
non-instructional staff, particularly in
areas such as bullying prevention, opioid
abuse and sexual harassment. We look
at how districts address cases of head
lice as well. It's no longer an automatic
ticket home, but some teachers and
parents are wary of that change.
Our curriculum focus this month
covers math instruction, and our
technology story looks at the role of
instructional technology directors.
And elsewhere...
It's impossible to understand American
history, and even American society
today, without a deep understanding
of slavery in America. Yet a new report
finds that the topic is mistaught and
often sentimentalized-and students
are alarmingly misinformed as a result.
See "What Kids Are Really Learning
About Slavery" in The Atlantic.

"Please tell somebody because he didn't
tell us. He didn't speak. Maybe he was
scared, I don't know, but if something is
going on, don't be afraid to speak up."
-Ashley Jones, mother of a teenage suicide victim,
in "6 Teen Suicides in 6 Months in 1 Ohio School District."

Evolution revolution

INDIA-Declaring
"Nobody, including our
ancestors, in written or
oral history, have said
they saw an ape turning into a man," India's
education minister Satyapal Singh
is leading an effort to ban Darwin's
theory of evolution from being taught
in the nation's schools and colleges.
Singh suggested it is "scientifically
wrong." Although more than 2,000
scientists have endorsed a statement
rebuking his claims, Singh has called
for a national conference to debate
the subject. Top government officials
suggest that no such formal discussion
will occur, suggesting that evolution
may stay in the curriculum.

No romance

WALES-The
principal at Ruthin
School, a private
boarding school
in North Wales, has told staff, students and families that he will expel
any student who has a boyfriend or
girlfriend, stating he believes that
teenage romances distract students
from their education. Principal Tony
Belfield says students who are
discovered to be in relationships
will not be removed from school
immediately, but will be allowed to
reconsider their situation before any
action is taken. Last year, Belfield
banned students from going to parks
or restaurants, and from smoking
and drinking.
