Creating Engagement between Schools and their Communities Lessons from Educational Leaders

Creating Engagement between Schools and their Communities Lessons from Educational Leaders

Author: Ted Purinton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/06/2018

Creating Engagement between Schools and their Communities: Lessons from Educational Leaders addresses how educational leaders have made efforts to reconnect their schools to their communities and the varied goals they achieved. The contributors of this book are educational leaders who have stayed committed to their neighborhoods and who have seen the moral imperative to provide equal opportunity to all students. This book shares their experiences, particularly looking at community-based schools in urban, impoverished, or immigrant communities-communities that often are disconnected from the political and economic centers of the country.

American Universities Abroad The Leadership of Independent Transnational Higher Education Institutions

Author: Ted Purinton Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/09/2017

Across the globe, American-style and liberal arts universities are being established. From the first, the American University of Beirut, established in 1866, to the liberal arts institutions being established in Saudi Arabia, Ghana, and elsewhere in the twenty-first century, there is a clear sense of the global desire for the American approach to higher education as a way of counteracting traditional, more narrowly defined university educations. However, these universities operate in a distinctive dynamic that must learn to bridge one culture with another, and leadership of such institutions must by its nature focus on such complexities and tensions. Throughout the chapters of this book, this unique element of these universities will be better understood through the stories and experiences as presented by their presidents, provosts, and other academic leaders.

Six Degrees of School Involvement Empowering a New Profession of Teaching

Six Degrees of School Involvement Empowering a New Profession of Teaching

Author: Ted Purinton Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/03/2011

Amidst the contentious debates about teacher effectiveness, most people believe that unions, education colleges, charter networks, consulting agencies, textbook publishers, test producers, professional associations, teachers, and researchers disagree with one another about the most essential school reforms. Though all these groups do certainly have their own interests and perspectives, they also all desire to see that students are better prepared for a competitive world. What if all these groups worked together for that very goal? What would happen if all reform work in PK-12 education centered on the improvement of teaching? Would teachers be treated differently? Would they respond to their work in more innovative ways? Would it change the quality of education that children in the United States receive?
