Affirmative Action Ruling Means Rethinking K-12 Education, Too

When my grandmother was a child, “separate but equal” was the law of the land. It meant everything was segregated — from railway cars to restaurants to buses to schools. I, on the other hand, benefited from wonderful, integrated schools with great teachers who helped me recognize and reach my potential.

In a school funding lawsuit, Edelblut avoids defining ‘adequate education’ – New Hampshire Bulletin

The latest lawsuit challenging New Hampshire’s school funding model hinges on a key question: How much must the state pay to provide a constitutionally adequate education? Testimony Tuesday by Department of Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut suggests that the answer may be hard for a judge to lock down.

My Experiment with ChatGPT | huffenglish.com Photo by Emiliano Vittoriosi on Unsplash One of the things I dislike about teaching AP English Literature is that I really need to offer students opportunities to practice for the exam, which means timed writing and multiple choice practice. I don’t think timed writing is pedagogically sound because we are not replicating the kind of writing students will have to do most often in college and career. Sure, students have deadlines, but it will…

What the DeSantis agenda means for higher education in Florida

What the DeSantis agenda means for higher education in Florida

Governor Ron Desantis has signed a new Florida higher ed law. Florida public colleges are now banned from offering general ed classes that “distort significant events” or “teach identity politics.” The law also bans state schools from using public money for diversity programs. Critics are calling it an attack on the very purpose of a college education. “The less information people have access to, the more they become indoctrinated. The importance of higher education is to teach people how to…
