Self-Regulation: American Schools Are Failing Nonconformist Kids | New Republic -- A different, utopian approach to classroom management works from the premise that children are natively good and reasonable. The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) defines it as involving the processes of developing social and emotional competencies toward the goal of making a child a good student, citizen, and worker who is less inclined to exhibit bad behaviors, like using drugs, fighting, bullying, or dropping out of school. In 2007, Greg Duncan, a professor of education at the University of California at Irvine, did an analysis of the effects of social and emotional problems on a sample of 25,000 elementary school students. He found, he says, Emotional intelligence in kindergarten was completely unpredictive. Children who started school socially and emotionally unruly did just as well academically as their more contained peers from first through eighth grades. (Apparently all those books and movies about horrid British childhoods are accurate.) SEL, the British hoped, would make its children emotionally healthy. For starters, the programs didnt seem to work as hopedor, as an official 2010 brief reported politely, [O]ur data was not congruent with the broader literature promising significant improvements in a range of outcomes.

Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011 - The Washington P ... -- The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agencys use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material. But then they never say, We turn around and deliberately search for Americans records in what we took from the wire. That, to me, is not so different from targeting Americans at the outset.

Why I Dont Write For Medium Medium -- Lets just say it: Medium is all the rage. Youre probably thinking thats a weird way to say that I must mean writing on Medium, not for Medium,right? Currently, I and all other Medium users are writing for Medium. Mediums sole value is giving me an easy way to write and driving traffic to my writing. Regardless of how much work you put in and how much traffic that drives to Medium Medium doesnt care.
