Hypothetical Taking School Case Study

… She was scraping by in her classes but focused most of her attention on socializing. Her philosophy was that the group home was embarrassing and she simply wanted nothing to do with it. When questioned as to what improving her grades might do to benefit her in getting out of the group home, she said there was no way out of the group home for her.

Conclusions:

Engagement: It is well-established in the literature that removal into a group home has adverse effects on education and life for children. Even studies going back as far as 20 years clearly show that children removed to foster care settings stop preforming well (Jackson, 1994).

Assessment: When first beginning this study and engaging the students, I was hopeful…. [read more]

School Improvements Performance Outcomes Essay

… ISLLC Standards:

Standard 2 of the ISLLC Standards speaks directly to this set of priorities, offering the assertion that administrative personnel should be minded toward improving the learning experience of all students. The findings relating to the Dunn Middle School suggest that, to the contrary, the emphasis has been placed on achieving proficiency in state-based standardized tests. In many ways, the imbalance of focus, which stresses teaching to the test instead of truly engaged and creative learning, has deprived students of the opportunity for a more dynamic learning experience. This emphasis is also counterintuitive to the priorities of the ISLLC Standards, which assert that "a school administrator is an educational leader who promotes the success of all students by advocating, nurturing, and sustaining a school….

School Improvement Case Study

… School Improvement

One of the main concerns the school has to come to face with is the significant gap in student achievement between white students and non-white students and by students with disabilities in general. The first step is to assess the reasons why these gaps exist. To start, the school curriculum should be audited to ensure that the curriculum is not preventing the equal achievement. Specifically, it needs to be audited for latent discrimination in materials used, methods taught and ways the comprehension is evaluated. If there are cultural differences that favor the white students within any of these segments, alterations must be met so that equal achievement is possible.

Second, the administration needs to consider implementing another curriculum that is specifically focused on…. [read more]

Improvement of Education in Developing Case Study

… Research Question Terminology. On the one hand, populations are far too diverse to suggest that a one-size-all approach would fit all of them; on the other hand, in many instances, research with these groups is no different from that with any other group (Darlington & Scott, 2002). Although there a numerous research methodologies available to social researchers today, virtually all of them employ comparable terminology in their definitions and applications that can also be applied to the instant investigation (Neuman, 2003).

School Personnel Functions Term Paper

… There is no single prescription or style for success in teaching and every teacher develops his or her own individual style. Also, different demographic groups may demand different teaching approaches. "A study of 31 high-performing teachers in low-performing urban schools found that these teachers had certain traits in common. They were strict; they taught in traditional, explicit ways; there was little time in their classrooms when instruction was not occurring; and they moved around the room helping their students" (Poplin 2011). More creative, team-based interaction, however, may be warranted in different educational environments. Size of the classroom, ability level, morale of students and teachers, and the need to meet standards all determine how teachers approach their tasks. Micro-managing teacher demeanor in the classroom is seldom…. [read more]


Schools and Education Term Paper

… (Rury 2013)

This is because the country was continuing to evolve based upon shifts in attitudes and beliefs in society. At the same time, the economy was continually adjusting.

The results were that more people became a part of the educational structure and were offered the opportunity to receive access to the same solutions as everyone else. (Rury 2013)

These ideals were supposed to provide everyone with better support and the ability to understand critical ideas. However, the reality is that these solutions are continuing to impact student performance. This is based upon the role that various social factors will have on an…. [read more]

Montefiore Medical Center (Mmc) Case Study

… " (Harvard Business School, 2001) The Balanced Scorecard, Brennan learned would assist in defending the institution against "sub-optimization" meaning that one care center taking actions that negatively impacted another care center would be prevented. This approach to measurements was one with balance and that served to bring about an increase in effectiveness through use of "real-time decision making" that enabled the center to make quick market adjustments. Foreman and Conaty approved use of this tool. The development of the nation level scorecard was a process with three steps:

(1) education and consensus building;

Harvard Case Shouldice Hospital Case Study

AVON Product Analysis Case Study

… For instance, the CEO attempted to view the manager 360-degree assessments in order to determine how effective the assessment tool was, however, she was not granted access, as she was told that the assessments were confidential.

Australian Cladding Company Case Study

… These approaches place the human resource management policy formulation at the strategic level. In these approaches to Strategic Human Resource Management it is claimed that: (1) human resource problems are problems solved by linking HRM and strategy formulation at an early stage; and (2) problems with strategy implementation are solved by early adjustment of the HRM to these strategies."
