A centralized, consistently reported system of indicators of educational equity is needed to bring attention to disparities in the U.S. education system, says a new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Indicators -- measures used to track performance and monitor change over time -- can help convey why disparities arise, identify groups most affected by them, and inform policy and practice measures to improve equity in pre-K through 12th grade education. Societal inequities influence nearly every aspect of students' education -- including their academic performance, the classes they take, their access to enrichment opportunities, and their school's approach to discipline. The system should include indicators that fall into two categories, says the report, Monitoring Educational Equity.

PHOTO: NAEEM AHMED GHOURI/EXPRESS The culture of mass copying is thriving in Sindh, eroding its education system over the past several decades. As usual, those who suffer the most are the poor students from outlying areas, where access to education is negligible. Why is this menace still in practice, despite the various legislative and administrative initiatives taken by the Ministry of Education? Legislatively, Sindh was among the other provinces that adopted a bill ensuring the right to education for all in order to claim political fame. Administratively, the Sindh Education Ministry installed a biometric system – the first of its kind in Pakistan – with the aim to put checks on ghost employees who draw their salaries without attending to their duties. Then why … [Read more...] about Why is the copy culture an ingrained part of education in Sindh?

Bill Haslam can look back on a record that includes a groundbreaking program offering tuition-free community college scholarships as well as improved student test scores, record job creation, a new road-funding program and more. But ask him what he thinks his administration's legacy will be after eight years in office and the 60-year-old former Knoxville mayor says that verdict is pretty much out of his hands. "Other people will decide that," said Haslam, who won national acclaim for his 2014 program called Tennessee Promise, which offers last-dollar aid to recent high school graduates to attend community and technical colleges.
