The six Regional Resource Centers (RRCs) are specifically funded to assist state education agencies in the systemic improvement of education programs, practices, and policies that affect children and youth with disabilities. The RRCs help states and U.S. jurisdictions find integrated solutions for systemic reform, offering consultation, information services, technical assistance, training, and product development.

Serving Language Minority Students
Also available in format (110K).
Learning opportunities in the United States are often limited for language minority students by differences between their respective language and culture and the dominant language and culture of public schools. This pamphlet will acquaint parents and local education authorities with the laws, court rulings, and administrative regulations that protect the rights of such students, so that they have access to a public education of the same extent and quality that is provided for all other children.
As part of a national effort to guarantee equal educational opportunities for all students in the United States, the federal government has, over more than twenty years, created a body of law and judicial rulings that protects the rights of national origin minority students whose home language is other than English or whose proficiency in English is limited. A substantial body of federal and state legislation defines school districts' responsibilities with respect to such students. Even though the scope and interpretation of law vary according to specific circumstances, the legal base of schools' responsibility is firmly established and remains in force. Parents and persons responsible for education policies and programs can and should turn to these laws and regulations for guidance. Compliance with these laws will ensure that the ever-increasing numbers of students of other-than-English-language background will benefit from the opportunities to learn that our democratic society promises to all.

    SREB Jennifer Burke August 1998 Technology Standards for Teachers “To be effective, technology certification for educators needs to be part of formal education policy and a required element of school and teacher evaluations. . . . Educators need a system of technology training and certification.” Council on Basic Education, 1998. The rapid increase in the availability of computers and other technology in schools represents a significant investment, and state leaders are concerned about results. To what extent does technology use result in improved student learning? Research has found that teacher skill in using technology is a major factor in improving student learning with technology. Teachers must know not only how to use technology but also when and why to use it. Teacher technology standards identify essential skills teachers need for effective use of computers and other electronic equipment in schools today. State teacher licensure and certification has not kept pace with rapid changes in technology and teaching. Linking technology skills assessments to licensing requirements helps ensure that teachers have the skills to support and guide students and to increase student learning using technology. Twelve SREB states have established teacher technology standards or guidelines that address several levels of competency:

    July 19, 1916, used by permission.
    Perhaps a mirror of American society, Ding Darling reflected many views on war and peace throughout his long career, one that spanned two world wars and continual conflict. He drew literally hundreds of war-related cartoons. Many, like this one from 1916, evoked the poignancy of families swept up in the struggles. McKnight Foundation Awards $160,000 to UMBSN
