Scenarios

According to Millett (2011) when developing a scenario it is important to look at both past and current trends (p. 40). This is the perfect starting point for a scenario concerning the future of education.

Scanning

It is important for educators to be aware of changes being discussed at the federal and state level. It is also important to be aware of public opinion on the state of education by reading editorials, political cartoons, etc.

online learning

Online Learning

Online learning is increasing at the K-12 level particularly at the high school level.

Benefits of online learning include (Picciano, Seaman, & Allen, 2010, p.21):

Meeting the needs of specific groups of students

Offering courses not otherwise available at the school

Offering Advanced Placement or college-level courses

Permitting students who failed a course to take it again

Reducing scheduling conflicts for students

Blended programs are more appealing for K-12 school districts to maintain the social and nurturing aspects of K-12 education (Picciano et al, 2010, 29)

common core state standards
Common Core State Standards
  • Developed to address unpreparedness of high school students for college and career
  • Standards were created to “reflect college and career readiness” (Rothman, 2012, p.13)
  • Two consortia of states have received $350 million to design assessments for the standards (Conley, 2011, p. 17)
  • School districts need to rewrite curriculum to address the new standards
minority parental i nvolvement
Minority Parental Involvement
  • Older African American adolescents showed increased achievement, better attendance, and fewer discipline referrals when their parents were indirectly involved in school (Hayes, 2012, pp. 573-576).
  • Teachers and counselors will use this information to work directly with families to increase their indirect involvement.
  • Parents need to communicate openly with their children in order to increase their opportunities for success in school (Hayes, 2012, p. 578).
