Parents Protest Gov. To Leave Schools Alone

Saturday, March 12, 2005

More than 500 parents, teachers and students rallied in Ventura on Thursday to protest Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger`s proposed budget, accusing him of breaking a promise to keep his hands off education dollars.

Led by state schools chief Jack O`Connell, speakers at the campaign-style rally said California voters have made it clear that education is a funding priority and that Schwarzenegger should honour that sentiment.

“We need a governor who will listen to the will of the voters and not try to run them over with a Hummer,” O`Connell said to enthusiastic cheers.

Ventura parents upset with the 2005-06 state budget unveiled by Schwarzenegger in January organized the rally. Though it calls for a $2.9-billion increase in school spending, it withholds an additional $2.3 billion that school districts are entitled to under Proposition 98.

That initiative, approved by voters in 1988, provides a guaranteed funding level for the state`s public schools. Last year, during a state budget crisis, education leaders agreed to forgo $2 billion on Schwarzenegger`s promise that funding would not again be withheld.

O`Connell and other Democratic leaders say the January budget proposal breaks that promise. A spokesman for Schwarzenegger said the governor did the best he could for schools while facing a nearly $9-billion state budget gap.

“Education spending has the largest year-over-year spending increase in this budget,” said H.D. Palmer, the governor`s spokesman. “It more than covers projected growth in student enrolment, inflation and funding for new initiatives.”

Accommodating additional education funding would have meant “deep and drastic reductions” in health and social service programs, Palmer said.

Aside from immediate budget worries, education leaders say they are fighting to return long-term stability to education funding in California.

Schwarzenegger has suggested that education should not be exempt from across-the-board spending cuts when state revenues fall short. But education groups say voters have indicated that education should be spared from reductions because it is vital to the state`s economic health.

Even with Proposition 98`s funding formula, California ranks among the bottom 10% of states in per-pupil spending, said Charles Weis, Ventura County schools superintendent.

“We`ve seen 30 years of erosion in funding for public schools,” Weis said. “We have now the largest class sizes, the fewest librarians and the fewest administrators. It`s time we changed course.”

The Ventura Education Partnership and Save Our Schools, two grass-roots advocacy groups headed by parents, sponsored Thursday’s gathering.

Over the last four years, schools have seen $9.8 billion in cuts, translating to increases in class size, teacher layoffs, shorter library hours and fewer counsellors, nurses, custodians and groundskeepers.

PTAs have tried to fill the gap by holding fundraisers, said Marie Lakin, a spokeswoman for the Ventura Education Partnership. But there are only so many buckets of cookie dough you can sell, Lakin said.

“This rally may not help,” she said. “But at least we will know we tried.”

Parents and educators from across the county attended the rally, held in a courtyard at the Ventura County Government Center. While waiting for O`Connell to arrive, they sang songs and broke into chants.

Many held hand-lettered signs with messages directed at the state`s actor-turned-governor.

“We Must Stop the Kindergarten Cop,” read one. “Liar, Liar, Promise on Fire,” went another, and “No Arnold, You Won`t Be Back.”

Under gray skies, El Rio schoolteachers played songs on an acoustic guitar in front of a sign that read, “Will Play for School Supplies.”

Pushing a double stroller with her two children tucked inside, Camarillo teacher Cyndee Goolsbee said she attended the event not only to protest the lack of funding but to urge the public not to sign any petitions that would hurt allocations to schools.

“If they keep taking money away, what are my kids going to have? Nothing,” said the fourth-grade teacher.

Timothy Baird, superintendent of the Ojai Unified School District, said the event was bittersweet for him.

Though happy to see grass-roots opposition emerging, over the past two days he had handed out layoff notices to 28 teachers in his district.

In coming months, he expects to oversee the dismantling of elementary music programs that have been in place for years as well as making additional reductions to support staff.

District leaders had hoped to stave off a $1.6-million cut to their $24-million budget by passing a parcel tax. But Ojai Valley voters soundly rejected that option at an election earlier in the week, leaving educators with little choice but to proceed with cuts, he said.

Provost Asks State To Increase Funding

Wednesday, March 30, 2005

The University Is Seeking $180 Million For The Next Fiscal Year.

Education is coming at a high price for Temple students. In 2003, a report on graduating classes at public research universities in the nation showed that Temple was ranked second in the nation for the amount of debt students have when graduating.

Temples students are graduating with an average of more than $23,000 in debt due to Temples high tuition prices. Temple has one of the five highest public univeristy tuitions in the country, along with Pittsburgh, Penn State, New Hampshire, and Vermont, according to Deputy Provost Dr. Richard Englert.

There is an enrollment increase and decrease in money, Englert said. As a result, tuition is high.

To help ease this burden, on March 2, Provost Ira M. Schwartz traveled to Harrisburg to ask the State House Appropriations Committee to increase state funding for Temple.

Schwartz asked the Committee to increase state funding by $10.2 million for the 2005-06 school year. Gov. Ed Rendell has a proposed budget that would cut Temples funding by $2.25 million for next year.

Temple currently receives $170 million dollars from the state, which goes into the Universitys overall budget, and is asking for $180 million from the state for the 2005-06 fiscal year.

Due to increased enrollment, state funding per full-time student has decreased from $7,713 in 2000 to $5,993 in 2005. This is a 20 percent reduction per student, which leads to a corresponding increase in tuition.

Schwartz told the Committee that Temple plans to use the state funds to achieve four goals: to continue to provide educational opportunities for the growing population of students; to strengthen Temples large professional programs; to build on Temples existing research base and to meet inflationary costs.

The money from the state will be part of the overall pool of dollars that the University has from tuition and other sources. The money will help with instructional programs and support for instructional programs, according to Englert.

According to Schwartzs statement, Temple would like to increase the research programs, especially in medical, bio-medical, pharmaceutical, and chemical areas.

Schwartz said Temple would like to use state funds to help strengthen its professional programs. Temples programs in medicine, dentistry, podiatry, pharmacy and law enroll 3,100 students, which makes it the sixth largest professional school in the nation and the fourth largest among public universities, according to Schwartzs statement.

Schwartz also told the Committee that many of these graduates stay in the state. Without Temples large, high quality professional programs, Pennsylvania would face a significant shortage of practitioners in these critical fields, Schwartz said.

Compared to other state schools in the country, Pennsylvanias public college tuition is much higher.

Tuition is high at Penn State, Pitt and Temple compared to other states. They tend to provide more support for public education, Englert said of other state governments.

Temple will know for sure if they received the $10.2 million increase by the June 30 deadline in order to decide the budget.

We hope everything is all finished in the next two months, Englert said.

Chief Financial Officer Martin S. Dorph, Temple Student Government President Naeem Thompson, and sophomore Amber Ziminski, accompanied Schwartz to Harrisburg.

The representatives in Harrisburg wanted the students to speak about their view of the future of the university. They also wanted to hear about the brain drain that is affecting Pennsylvania.

The legislators were very interested in Naeem and Ambers thoughts about the University] and appropriations, said Englert of the two students who represented the student body.

Temple has an extremely promising future as a university. Our standard, as far as academics, has been rising significantly, said Ziminski, who was recommended to attend with Schwartz by the University Honors and Business Honors programs.

The amount of credentials that our faculty has is growing. In addition, the fact that we are so community-oriented and determined to better the Philadelphia area makes us an important asset to our region, Ziminski said.

MPCC’s Online Courses Expanding, Gaining Popularity

According to recent reports, roughly one in six students enrolled in higher education – about 3.2 million people – took at least one online course last fall.

These figures come as no surprise to Charles Osteen, Mid-Plains Community College Area Distance Learning Coordinator.

“The Internet is changing the way we do things today. It’s changing the way we work, the way we shop, and the way we educate,” Osteen said.

According to a recent MPCC Summary Report of Online and Distance Learning, the number of online courses increased from 13 in spring semester of 2004, to 53 in the 2007 spring semester. The number of students increased from 189 to more than 800 between 2004-2007 spring semesters. Online courses and student enrollment in other semesters from 2004 to 2007 have shown similar growth.

China Marches Ahead Of India In Higher Education

It is well known that China is far ahead of India in primary education with literacy rates more than 85% compared to Indias less than 65%. However, an analysis of statistics tends to prove that China has acquired a considerable lead over India even in higher education. Another interesting aspect about China is that it is well ahead in professional education. India, on the other hand, still leads in the non-professional education.

When one compares the number of graduates in India in 04 with China in 03, the figures are revealing. India graduated 24.6 lakh students ahead of China at 18.8 lakh. India also has 11.5 lakh arts graduates compared to China which lags at just 5 lakh. Science graduates in India at 5.4 lakh are far more than Chinas very meagre 1.73 lakh.

But China is far ahead of India in professional education. For instance, China churned out 6.44 lakh engineering graduates compared to just 1.55 lakh graduates from India. Medicine presents an even starker contrast. China churned out 1.1 lakh medical graduates compared to a mere 25,000 from India. And, very interestingly, the nominally Communist China turns out 2.8 lakh management graduates compared to 64,000 from India.

China has been working at its educational statistics for the past decade and more. For instance, the funding for education has increased by almost eight times since 1991. India has several lessons to learn from China in the way it has handled higher education, especially its focus on professional education.

India could do with more institutes for professional education. A recent ETIG analysis had concluded that India has a severe scarcity of doctors, especially in northern states.

The fact that China annually generates more than four times the doctors that India does only strengthens the view that India needs to work at increasing the output from its professional educational institutions, especially medicine

‘Highest number of British visas to Indians’

Tuesday, April 05, 2005

Britain issues more visas to Indians than to any other nationality, says British High Commissioner Michael Arthur. Last year, the British embassy and the consulates issued about 270,000 multiple entry visas to Indians. We expect the number to go up by 30 percent this year. The number will be crossing the 300,000 figure, he told reporters here Monday on the sidelines of a workshop on stem cell research.

In fact, the number of visas issued to Indian citizens is by far the largest and more than we issue to citizens of any other country, Arthur added.

The increase in the number of visas could be seen in the light of increasing trade and economic ties between the two countries.

Even the number of visas to Indian students to pursue higher education in Britain had gone up substantially, he said.

With more and more Indian students opting to study in the UK, we expect the number to go up to 15,000 this year, which will be a 30 percent increase over last year. The number was 3,000 five years ago, the high commissioner disclosed.

Governor’s Plan For Additional Money Investment Pro Higher Education

Saturday, February 12, 2005

If Gov. Ernie Fletcher`s new tax plan passes, Murray State could see additional funding this year that may help restore the negative effects of the 2004 cut.

In 2004, Fletcher issued a budget that cut Kentucky`s post-secondary education by about $70 million. The 2.5 percent cut dipped into both “unrestricted” and “restricted” funds causing Murray State to lose about $3.8 million. Sixty percent of the University`s budget consists of restricted funds, which includes revenue from student tuition and fees, grants and outside donations. Unrestricted funds are those given from the government.

The budget offers funding to higher education totaling $26 million this year and $29 million dollars for 2006. Murray State could receive $800,000 and $1.9 million from the budget in 2005 and 2006, respectively. The Board of Regents and University President F. King Alexander will decide how the money will be spent for the University, said Senior Budget Analyst John Hicks.

Winters, chairman of the Senate Education Committee, said, with some adjustments, the budget will have positive effects on education and the economy. State Budget Director Brad Cowgill said the governor`s budget serves three major objectives: fairness, stability and economic stimulus.

He further said that the budget will bring in new industries and help old industries survive.

Kentuck gov had its opinion that, the budget will create stability, predictability and competition among businesses. The top corporations` income taxes will drop from 8.25 percent to 6 percent and the corporation license tax will be removed.

The budget`s major responsibilities also include Medicaid, state security and road management. According to The Paducah Sun, the budget will increase cigarette taxes from three cents per pack to 34 cents per pack, and alcohol will be subject to a 6 percent sales tax.

If it passes, the Senate and the committee will review it, which will then report it to the Senate. If the budget passes, it will take effect immediately.

If the Senate makes more changes to the proposal, it will be sent back to the House to vote. If the House members do not approve the changes, a conference committee will discuss a compromise. Murray State students will travel to Frankfort Wednesday to “let (their) voices be heard,” President F. King Alexander said at the Student Government Association meeting.

He said the rally`s purpose is to remind state legislatures to support higher education because college students are the future of the state.

Debate over Israeli army’s role in school

Monday, January 03, 2005

Israeli army is launching a program to have lieutenant colonels interact with high school students.

For Kerem Blumberg, a high school senior uncomfortable with what she says has been a marked increase in class time devoted to discussing army values, a talk given by a brigadier general last week was cause for protest. ISRAEL

She and three other students chained themselves to the auditorium fence and brought a sign: “No entry to the army.”

“We think we have every right to fully matriculate without being in a premilitary course,” says Ms. Blumberg, a student at Tel Aviv Urban Aleph School, known for a high rate of draft avoidance. The student protest comes at a time of mounting controversy over “The Coming Generation,” a program launched by the army and Israel`s Education Ministry, which assigns a lieutenant colonel to interact with students at each of 70 participating high schools. If deemed successful, the program could significantly expand next year.

Program backers say it will help instill crucial values such as the pursuit of excellence and service to the community and state. But critics say it`s an attempt at indoctrination.

The debate reflects a larger struggle here to define what role the army should have in a society that defines itself as Western and liberal. After five wars, Israel remains today one of the most militarized societies in the world – a situation, some say, that is no longer justified.

“There is no act threatening the very existence of Israel and we do not need to be a mobilized nation,” says Gaby Solomon, a former dean of Haifa University`s Education Faculty.

Program supporters, however, say Israel still faces a threat to its survival. “You can`t say `no entry to the army.` This is our army and it is fighting for our lives in the face of those who desire to eradicate us,” says Melli Pollishook-Bloch, chairman of the Knesset Education Committee.

Former army officers wield enormous clout in Israeli politics. Israel`s last two elections pitted former generals against each other. Military background is often an important factor in gaining employment. Even preferences in pop music and perceptions of news events are influenced by the army, through its popular Galei Zahal radio station.

For many, exposure to the army begins in 11th grade, with five days of training that includes learning how to shoot. In 12th grade, students are advised by a “youth guide,” a young soldier who counsels them on draft procedures. Israeli men face mandatory conscription after high school for three years and women for two.

“The Coming Generation” program calls on lieutenant colonels to meet with high school students and their parents. Students will be taken on a “military heritage” field trip and a visit to a unit. “They will talk about citizenship and the history of the army within the history of the state of Israel,” says Maj. Moshik Aviv, head of youth preparation.

Ms. Pollishook-Bloch says the program is a needed antidote: “Our schools have become places devoid of values,” he says. “As institutions of learning, they are losing their value. People are looking for a solution, and one of the solutions is the army, although it should not be the only solution,” she says. But Mr. Solomon says the program is misguided. “For this government, maintaining our image as a nation in uniform constantly on alert, living in fear of annihilation, justifies the militarization of schools,” she says. “One possible outcome of this is to have high school kids leaning in a militaristic, chauvinistic direction.”

A new petition calls for canceling the program, alluding to recent reports of army abuses in the occupied territories.

At Urban Aleph, students were divided about the idea. “We have a lot of questions and it is important to have someone who can explain and help with dilemmas,” says senior Tom Pimentel.

A 10th grader, who asked not to be named, differs: “I live in a country that is at war and when the time comes I will serve. But meanwhile, give us a chance to live.”
