Indiana University School of Education

  1. This is a session called "Implementing Evidence-Based Practices: Moving Beyond 'Principles' to the Study of Outcomes," by Tom Sexton, Director of the Center for Adolescent and Family studies at the IU School of Education in Bloomington. The session is from the Summit for Evidence-Based Practices, held May 19 and 20, 2011 in Indianapolis. Representatives of the Center for Evidence-Based Practice (CEBP) at Indiana University, the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) and community corrections personnel from around the state and region gathered for the event. More than 900 attended.

    The event is the latest event to focus on evidence-based practice in community corrections, a method of evaluating practices in community corrections to determine which ones produce best outcomes. The CEBP has held a few conferences since forming in 2009 as a collaboration between the IDOC and the Center for Adolescent and Family Studies (CAFS) in the IU School of Education. It is an effort combining ongoing research into best practices with in-field assistance and professional development for those conducting community corrections programs.

    The conference was co-sponsored by CEPB, IDOC, and the Indiana Judicial Center -- the agency of Indiana state government that provides training and technical assistance to probation departments and oversees the certification requirements for probation officers.

  4. Education historian and outspoken education policy analyst Diane Ravitch joined her Education Week blogging partner Deborah Meier, who is recognized as a leading advocate for personalized and intellectually-challenging schools for "Bridging Differences Live" on April 27, 2011 at Indiana University. Presented by the IU School of Education and the Meier Institute at Harmony Education Center in Bloomington, the event was a moderated discussion hosted by IU School of Education Communications and Media Relations Director Chuck Carney.

    Ravitch, research professor of education at New York University (NYU), is the author of "The Death and Life of the Great American School System," a New York Times bestselling book that directly challenges many of today's popular educational reforms. Ravitch's stance has earned special attention because as assistant secretary of education and counselor to the U.S. Secretary of Education under President George H.W. Bush, she advocated for many of the reforms measures she now questions. She also supported school choice and accountability measures implemented under "No Child Left Behind," the signature education reform measure of President George W. Bush.

    For nearly five decades, Meier has been a teacher, writer, and advocate for "small schools," schools she has said should be self-governing, democratic schools where most decisions are made by the families, teachers and parents in their schools. Her latest book is "Playing for Keeps: Life and Learning on a Public School Playground," co-authored with elementary teachers Brenda Engel and Beth Taylor, which examines the consequences of eliminating most recess time for young students.

  5. The IU School of Education sponsored a second screening of the film "Waiting for Superman" in the Wright Education Building auditorium on March 25. A critical discussion of the film took place afterward with expert panelists, including SOE professors and teachers.

    The film is directed by Davis Guggenheim, who won praise and awards for his documentary about global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth." This film follows five New York City children whose families seek alternatives to local public schools. While the documentary has earned praise as insightful, it has also earned criticism from others.

    The event was organized by the Literacy, Culture. and Language Education (LCLE) Graduate Student Organization, sponsored by the IUSA Funding Board, School of Education, and LCLE.
