Gov. Doug Ducey cites Arizona's teacher shortage to defend loosened training standard

PHOENIX — Gov. Doug Ducey is defending controversial legislation he sought — and is expected to sign — that would allow more people without formal teacher training to lead a public school classroom. Existing law already allows people who have expertise in science, technology, engineering or math to teach. SB 1042 would open it up to anyone who has “expertise in a content area or subject matter.” http://tucson.com/news/state-and-regional/ducey-cites-arizona-s-teacher-shortage-to-defend-lowered-training/article_1d013...

Arts Program in Poor Performing Schools Boosts Learning

In some of the lowest performing elementary and middle schools in the U.S., students are learning in an unconventional way. “I like to act and I like to sing and I like to dance,” said 10-year-old Kayla Driakare, whose teachers at Florence Griffith Joyner Elementary School are incorporating much of what she loves doing into the everyday curriculum. https://www.voanews.com/a/arts-program-boosts-learning-poor-performing-...

There Are No Quick Fixes for Teacher Shortage, Report Warns

If you think raising teacher salaries is the way to attract talented young people into the profession, well, that sort of easy-fix, across-the-board solution to the teacher shortage problem will just not do, according to a new report. Such solutions, say the authors, don't take into account that shortages do not exist everywhere and in every field. There are, rather, isolated shortages in certain subject areas (like science, math, and special education) and in certain locales (like rural or high-needs schools), and these demand targeted...

Trump order seeks to limit federal role in K-12 education

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that aims to reduce the federal government's role in K-12 education. Trump is giving Education Secretary Betsy DeVos just short of a year - 300 days - to identify areas where Washington has overstepped its legal authority in education, and modify and repeal regulations and guidance from her department, if necessary. A report will be returned to the White House and eventually made public, officials said. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_TRU...

Senate OKs bill requiring seat belts on new school buses

The Texas Senate on Wednesday approved legislation requiring all school buses purchased after Sept. 1 to have three-point seat belts for all occupants. Sen. Sylvia Garcia, D-Houston, said her bill would close a loophole in a 2007 state law that required the seat belts on school buses but was contingent on state funding that is no longer provided. http://www.mystatesman.com/news/senate-oks-bill-requiring-seat-belts-new-school-buses/RaL...

Monument review includes oceans, tribal lands and Sequoias

SALT LAKE CITY — President Donald Trump's call to review 24 national monuments established by three former presidents puts in limbo protections on large swaths of land home to ancient cliff dwellings, towering Sequoias, deep, canyons and oceans habitats where seals, whales and sea turtles roam. Trump and other critics say presidents have lost sight of the original purpose of the law created by President Theodore Roosevelt that was designed to protect particular historical or archaeological sites rather than wide expanses. ...
