Economic and Public Policy Trends
  • January 2013, Budget Cuts Go Into Effect
  • Educational Effects: (NEA, 2012)
  • If Title I Grants are cut,
  • Then 1.7 million students lose services and
  • 15,000 educational jobs are lost.
  • If School Improvement Grants are cut by $44 million,
  • Then 67,000 students in the neediest schools are hurt.
  • In Connecticut alone these cuts will affect 20,000 students.

FUTURINGDefined as:Anticipatory decision-making process that leads to planning and program development (Sobrero, 2004).

SCANNING

Technique used to identify trends and inform scenario building

Data: Observational and Research-based

Include: Local learners and stakeholder input.

Identify: Emerging issues and perceived value of programs.

Faculty and Staff: keep reading, listening, observing and researching.

Observe indicators of change.

SCENARIO

Different paths that lead to possible futures.

Advantages:

Two to four scenarios.

Fosters strategic thinking and

learning.

Provides initiatives.

Gives direction.

Framework for shared vision of

education.

Disadvantages:

Finding efficient futurist methodology

Measurement effectiveness

One scenario

Time

steps for futuring
Steps for Futuring

1. Scan and Monitor the Environment

2. Analyze Internal and External Assumptions

3. Create Scenarios Around Emerging Issues

4. Develop list of Forecasts with Each Scenario

5. Write Issue Brief

6. Assign Issue Briefs with Scenarios to Program Champion

7. Assign teams the Annual Responsibility of

Continual Futuring to Inform Planning, Direction,

Funding, Staffing, Partnerships, and Programs

trends in enrollment
Trends in Enrollment

Trend data from 1986 to 2008

  • White/Non-Hispanic enrollment down 14%
  • Non-White enrollment up 14%

African American show no growth

Hispanic enrollment doubled

  • Nineteen of 20 largest schools are now

70% of those homeschooled are white

23 % of those homeschooled are non-white

absenteeism
ABSENTEEISM
  • Chronic Absenteeism: defined as missing 10% of the school year.

Increasing Attendace and Decreasing Chronic Absenteeism

OpPORTUNITIES

CHALLENGES

1. Increasing attendance will increase school funding.

2. Decreasing absenteeism will decrease high school dropouts.

3. Increase in homeschooling will decrease class sizes and the cost of education.

4. Develop family-school-community relationships through improved communication and the use of technology, decreases absenteeism and increase attendance.

5. Provide alternative education initiatives for truants: in-school , homeschool and technology.

  • Changing what going to school means.
  • Increasing the number of non-white homeschooled students.
  • Building relationships with parents who already mistrust teachers and schools.
  • Keeping existing technology in working order
  • Upgrading technology and training for same.
preparing for the future
Preparing for the Future
  • Track absences and tardies using learning analytics software.
  • Change the definition of school to include
    • Online learning and
    • Hybrid learning
      • Learn from home on the computer using Open Course Ware created by the school district teachers.
      • Include videos, game-based learning, lessons, tutoring, and supplemental materials.
      • Quizzes and tests could be given at the school on specified days.
    • And Face to face learning.
preparing continued
Preparing Continued

3. Increase Homeschooling:

  • Reduces class sizes
  • Reduces cost of education
  • Reduces Absenteeism

4. Begin creating an Open Courseware Database in the district.

5. Creatye and provide alternative educational initiatives for chronic truants.

a call to action
A CALL TO ACTION

Remember that teaching is not a competition. It is done through collaboration and teamwork.

If school district would create open education resource websites, then teachers could create and share Best practice lesson plans based on the Common Core State Standards. These steps would assist parents that home school their children and students and parents looking for help with homework. Wouldn’t it be great if an absent student could access the lessons for the day, videos and supplemental work and come to school the next day ready to start without skipping a beat.
