  • Does Where You Sit In the Classroom Say a Lot About You?

    prefessionalu:

    By Julie Mastrine

    Where students choose to sit in a classroom can have an effect on how professors perceive them, says Chris Hakala, a psychology professor and director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Western New England University.

    Students who sit in the front of the classroom may find it easier to develop a better relationship with their professor, unlike those who choose to sit in the very back.

    Although choosing to sit in the front of the classroom may improve classroom engagement, it won’t necessarily translate into better grades, he says.

    “In bigger classes, students in front do tend to be better students,” Hakala says. “That being said, if you tell a bad student to sit up front, it’s not going to do a lot.”

Debt by Degrees

Maybe we need to be willing to spend more and more of  our incomes and taxpayer dollars on school, or maybe we need to be  willing to pay educators and administrators significantly less, or maybe  we need to find ways to make colleges more productive places, which  would mean radically changing our idea of what going to college is all  about. Until America figures out its priorities, college kids are going  to have to keep running just to stand still.

  • “ “I want all of you to set a goal to continue your education after you graduate,” Mr. Obama said to students at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in Washington. “And if that means college for you, just getting into college isn’t enough. You also have to graduate. “Our country used to have the world’s highest proportion of young people with a college degree,” the president said. “We now rank 16th. I don’t like being 16th; I like being No. 1.” ”

The study, entitled “Priced Out: How the Wrong Financial-Aid Policies Hurt Low-Income Students,” was conducted by the Education Trust,  an advocacy and research group, that was initially compiling a “best  value” list for low income students.  When, however, so few of the 1,186  schools the trust examined fit the criteria established to indicate  “best value,” the list metamorphized into a policy critique of sorts—  the first major examination of an outside group of federal data on  college’s net price according to income.  The study examined information  from the 2008-2009 academic year.
