The Management and Efficiency of the School Governance and management Meetings of different kinds are held regularly. Staff meetings take place every three weeks, departmental meetings every week, heads of department and middle management every third week, and boarding staff every week. School committees, such as the health and safety committee and the food committee, also meet regularly. House meetings take place every fortnight. Every Tuesday, the head of the sixth form has a brief meeting with the head girl and the deputy head girl. This very structured but diverse approach to management ensures that communications within the school are effective. Until July 1999, the school had no effective long-term SDP. The Way Ahead Group has now prepared an SDP for 1999/2000 which sets out priorities for the year. The next stage will be to devise a five-year rolling programme which will identify not only the priorities but the person responsible for seeing each priority through, the cost, the criteria for review and the timescale. When the SDP is complete, it will provide a clear but flexible blueprint for the school's future development. The school has produced an attractive and informative prospectus. It takes the form of a simple folder with a single pocket on the inside. Into this pocket go the mission statement, the nursery and junior school prospectus, the senior school prospectus, and several well-illustrated folders about aspects of the junior and senior schools, such as boarding and the sixth form. Out-of-date information can be easily changed, leaving material that is still valid intact.

Making Schools Work Better for All Children Briefing Paper Britain’s Emerging Education Industry by Janet Beales Kaidantzis March 2000 Table of Contents Note: American language and spelling conventions have been used to describe Britain’s education system. Background on Britain’s Education System The United Kingdom consists of the countries of England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. With the exception of Scotland, education policies and practices are broadly similar throughout the U.K. Scotland’s system of education differs significantly from the rest of the U.K. and will not be covered in this briefing paper. The 1870 Education Act marked the direct involvement of the state in education. Previously, education had been left to the Voluntary Church Societies. The 1870 Act, established during the reign of Queen Victoria, set up a system of local school boards with the power to provide schooling paid by taxpayers. In 1880 compulsory education was law and became free in 1891. Today, education is compulsory from age 5 to 16. After age 16 young people can choose whether to continue with their formal education, enroll in the government’s vocational training program, or go to work. Seventy percent opt to stay in education in a regular public school (known as 6

In seven out of ten lessons observed it was judged to be good or better and of these it was deemed to be very good in just less than one half. There was no unsatisfactory teaching. In all the lessons seen in the Junior School management and control of pupils was very good. Relationships between teachers and pupils are good. Humour and praise are used to good effect to encourage and support pupils. Generally teaching is appropriate to meet the needs of the pupils. Differentiated tasks were provided in English and mathematics in Year 3 but their use is not uniform throughout the school. Extension work is also used for the more able pupils and this was seen to be effective, especially in mathematics. Grouping by ability was used effectively in PE and games to allow teachers to provide optimum support to the pupils Teachers work very hard and are conscientious in their work. The predominant teaching approach is didactic and teacher centred and is used effectively. When combined with other teaching methods, including practical investigative work, it contributes to the high level of attainment and good or rapid progress achieved by the pupils. All teachers use question and answer sessions at the start of lessons to very good effect. A variety of visual aids, including videos and television, CD-ROMs, computers, various artefacts and, in Year 3, chocolate to support pupils learning and so aid understanding of the work being introduced. Year 3 teachers of mathematics were particularly skilled in the use of supporting material.

Assessment, Performance Indicators, 'League Tables', 'Value-added' Measures and School Effectiveness? Consider the Issues and 'Let's Get Real'! Kenneth J. Rowe Centre for Applied Educational Research, The University of Melbourne Abstract Current policy activity related to 'outcomes-based' educational performance indicators and its link with growing demands for accountability standards monitoring benchmarking and school effectiveness is widespread - both internationally and in Australia. Within this context, the present paper highlights the limitations of using performance indicators based on test or examination scores as accountability measures at the school- and system-level, or indeed, as measures of student learning outcomes. The issues raised are presented for consideration, stressing the need for caution in generating and publishing potentially invalid and misleading information, especially in the typically published form of 'league tables' consisting of schools' raw, 'ability-adjusted', or 'value-added' average achievement scores, with the risk of generating both individual and institutional harm. As a means of at least minimising such problems, the paper outlines a code of ethics for the publication of educational performance indicators along the lines proposed by Goldstein and Myers (1996), and Myers and Goldstein (1996). The context In a discussion of the relationship between assessment and learning, Broadfoot (1996) claims: "Assessment is arguably

  • MPS standards leave 8th-graders in limbo: Until they pass, students between grades
    About 1,000 Milwaukee Public Schools students will enter uncharted ground somewhere between eighth and ninth grades when school resumes Aug. 23, because they have not met the new proficiency standards required to graduate from eighth grade.The students have known since they were in fifth grade that the proficiency hammer was going to be lowered on their class, but more than a quarter did not meet the standards by the time school ended in June. Hundreds are in summer school, taking a last opportunity to avoid becoming pioneers in the new grade designation, called "8T," or "8 transition," by MPS officials. What will happen to them there? It's probably too strong to say that school leaders are making it up as they go, but officials admit that a lot of details are not set yet and that the answers will vary from school to school.(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, July 23, 2000)(After the top link expires, this article will still be available on a password protected server

Freshman Admissions
Secondary School Preparation
The majority of undergraduate men and women enter MIT as members of the freshman class, directly following completion of secondary school studies. Most good public, parochial, and independent secondary schools in the United States and equivalent schools in other countries provide suitable preparation for the student who takes full advantage of the opportunities that such schools afford. The efforts of secondary schools to achieve regional accreditation are encouraged by MIT. MIT expects that its applicants will have enrolled in a broad, rigorous program in high school. The applicant should be able to read with intelligence and sensitivity and to express ideas clearly in spoken and written form. In mathematics, emphasis should be on mastery of fundamental principles, operations, and definitions, and on preparation for the study of calculus. Work in the sciences should stress basic concepts and quantitative understanding, both in the classroom and in the laboratory. It is strongly recommended that biology, chemistry, and physics be taken as preparation for the freshman year science subjects at MIT. Study of history and of a foreign language, in depth, is also strongly encouraged. Ideal preparation for MIT would include English (four years), history and social studies (two or more years), mathematics (four years, including a strong preparation in algebra, plane geometry, trigonometry, and calculus), laboratory sciences (three or more years, preferably including biology, chemistry, and physics), and a foreign language. However, interested students whose high school program does not match this curriculum in every detail are also invited to apply.

CWRU Undergraduate Admission: International admission process Application forms and deadlines International students fill out the same applications for admission as domestic students, but the applications deadlines are different. Student type Term of entry Deadline Freshman or transfer Fall semester May 1 Freshman or transfer Spring semester November 1 Freshman or transfer Summer session May 1 Application Deadlines for Special Programs International students may be considered for admission to the Early Decision and the Pre-Professional Scholars Programs. They should apply by the stated deadlines for those programs. International students, however, are rarely admitted to the Pre-Professional Scholars Program for Medicine. Finalists for all PPS Programs, including dentistry and law, are required to come to campus, at the student s expense, for an interview at the end of March. Requirements Financial support statement International students must submit statements, from their sponsor and their sponsor s bank, stating their sponsor's willingness and ability to fund a CWRU education. Students must have at least $32,500 for each year of study in order to qualify for a student visa. Admitted international students will not be issued a visa eligibility certificate (Form I-20 or IAP-66) until financial support has been verified. English language proficiency In order to be admitted, international freshmen and transfer applicants must submit proof of sufficient knowledge of English, by any one of the following means:

From Assessment to Grading The grading of students is possibly the most significant social or 'political' aspect of higher education, yet one of the least explicit and least criticized. In conventional teaching, there may be substantial efforts devoted to the design of courses, much concern about standards and resources, yet assessment design and the implementation of assessment policies, remains much less well discussed or analysed. There are some technical discussions of various assessment procedures, and some work on the effects of assessment on student perspectives, but very little detailed discussion of actual assessment practices. In many ways, this is a surprising omission, especially in the social science literature, since student grading seems to involve problems which have been well examined in other areas. Thus assigning numerical grades to student essays is a coding procedure , involving the same difficulties as, say, scoring questionnaire returns. Interpreting student essays involves similar problems to interpreting other texts, behaviour, actions, dreams, or interview responses. Arranging students' work on a continuum provided by a range of marks in a way which gains consent involves an ' accounting procedure ' similar to those in use in other professions such as counselling or policing. All these activities have been critically examined in a variety of ways, in hermeneutics

Comments from the Chair: A Hundred-Year-Old Bad Habit
Rush Holt
You may know the old joke about the teacher who says with exasperation, "I've taught this topic every year for 20 years and the class still does not understand it!" Many teachers will admit, at least privately, that the joke is a little too close for comfort. Although in recent years I have been teaching only an occasional class here and there, I remember all too well occasions when I as a teacher was frustrated by the students' apparent stubborn refusal to see a particular point as clearly as I did, even when I patiently repeated my explanation. Nothing is so hard to break as a bad habit, in this case the teacher's. Sometimes to gain a new perspective one has to climb steep terrain. You might suspect that my remarks are not meant solely for teachers. The constituents of the APS Forum on Education are varied, coming as we do from industrial, academic, research, and policy communities. Also, the spread of Forum members across the other topical divisions of the APS is remarkably uniform. So, it is clear that the physicists from all perspectives look to the Forum for ideas and action with regard to education. Likewise, the Forum leadership looks to the members in the various divisions to represent the interests of the Forum throughout the practice of physics. This issue of the newsletter focuses on some aspects of undergraduate physics, and the topic is important for even those who do not teach undergraduates. Physics teaching is a reflection of how we view our discipline, and it determines how others view it.
