‘Teachers for a New Era’ Work to Strengthen Education
school children
 

AS IS THE TEACHER, so is the school. After critical examination of thousands of student records throughout various cities and states, Carnegie Corporation of New York found that the quality of the teacher in the classroom is essential to student achievement. In an effort to facilitate teacher reform — and thus school reform — “Teachers for a New Era” was launched to strengthen and develop new programs for teacher preparation. In 2002, U.Va. was among the first four schools to receive a TNE grant of up to $5 million over five years, with hopes that at the end of the investment, U.Va. will “be seen as having established the standards for best practices in educating professional teachers.” Full story.

Claire Kaplan, U.Va.’s sexual assault education coordinator, knows all too well the discrimination that exists surrounding gay couples. Kaplan is a gay faculty member whose partner can’t get health benefits or adopt their daughter, since it is illegal in Virginia for anyone other than married couples to do so. Kaplan also has concerns that a new law prohibiting civil unions and contracts between people of the same sex may pose serious consequences for the University. Full story.
