Many school buildings across America are falling apart due to age or lack of maintenance. Others are outmoded and do not meet the needs of modern educational programs and curricula. Unfortunately, school administrators and boards of education have found it increasingly difficult to obtain the funding necessary to correct facility problems in their districts. However help is at hand in the fourth edition of a popular title originally published in 1999. Holt updates the status of school facilities in the U.S. and provides new information on the gap between federal, state, and local funding. New to this edition is a discussion of the importance of senior voter contributions for the success of election campaigns. The nuts and bolts of securing the funding for facility construction, a component of the building process usually overlooked in training administrators, are clearly outlined in chapters that begin with a look at the problem of aging schools and follow through the planning and project development phases to the bond campaign and election-day. Filled with tips, checklists, and insights on the details from experienced school leaders, this is the perfect guide to consult every step on the way to victory.

Manzer's comparative political study of schools in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States focuses on five fundamental problems in the historical development of Anglo-American educational regimes: the original creation of systems of elementary education in the nineteenth century as publicly provided and publicly governed; the transformation of secondary schools in the early twentieth century to match the emerging structure of occupational classes in capitalist industrial economies; the planning for secondary schools in the development of the welfare state after the Second World War; the accommodation of social diversity in public schools from the 1960s to the 1990s in response to increasingly strong assertions of ethnicity, language, race, and religion, not only as criteria for equal treatment, but also as foundations of communal identity; and more.

***JETZT ODER NICHTS – der provokante Gesellschaftsentwurf der international bekannten Bestsellerautorin Naomi Klein (›NoLogo‹ und ›Die Schock-Strategie‹)*** Vergessen Sie alles, was Sie über den Klimawandel zu wissen meinten: Es geht nicht nur um CO2-Emissionen, es geht um den Kapitalismus! Die weltbekannte Aktivistin Naomi Klein weckt uns aus der kollektiven Ohnmacht angesichts der Klimakatastrophe. In einer packenden Vision zeigt sie, dass wir uns dieser existentiellen Herausforderung stellen können. Wir müssen unser Wirtschaftssystem des Immer-mehr aufgeben und etwas radikal Neues wagen. Denn überall auf der Welt gibt es bereits überraschende und inspirierende Alternativen. Brillant gedacht, fundiert recherchiert, hoffnungsvoll und spannend. Ein Buch, das aufrüttelt und Lust auf die Zukunft macht. »Die Klimakatastrophe kann die Welt zum Besseren ändern.« — Naomi Klein »Naomi Klein befasst sich in ihrer unbestechlichen, leidenschaftlichen und akribischen Art mit den größten und drängendsten Fragen unserer Zeit. Ihr Werk hat die Spielregeln der Debatte verändert. Für mich zählt sie zu den inspirierendsten politischen Vordenkern der Welt von heute.« — Arundhati Roy »Zweifellos eines der wichtigsten Bücher des Jahrzehnts.« — Amitav Ghosh »Naomi Klein ist ein Genie. Sie hat für das Feld der Politik das geleistet, was Jared Diamond für die Erforschung der Geschichte des Menschen getan hat. Meisterhaft verwebt sie politische, ökonomische und historische Fakten und verdichtet sie zu einfachen und mächtigen Wahrheiten mit universeller Anwendbarkeit.« — Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. »Naomi Kleins klare Sprache und ihr Scharfsinn, machen Lust auf Veränderung und verdeutlichen die Notwendigkeit zum sofortigen Handeln.« — Charlize Theron »Eine mitreißende Pflichtlektüre!« — Michael E.

Financing Public Schools moves beyond the basics of financing public elementary and secondary education to explore the historical, philosophical, and legal underpinnings of a viable public school system. Coverage includes the operational aspects of school finance, including issues regarding teacher salaries and pensions, budgeting for instructional programs, school transportation, and risk management. Diving deeper than other school finance books, the authors explore the political framework within which schools must function, discuss the privatization of education and its effects on public schools, offer perspectives regarding education as an investment in human capital, and expertly explain complex financial and economic issues. This comprehensive text provides the tools to apply the many and varied fiscal concepts and practices that are essential for aspiring public school administrators who aim to provide responsible stewardship for their students. Special Features: "Definitional Boxes" and "Key Terms" throughout chapters enhance understanding of difficult concepts. Coverage of legal, political, and historical issues provides a broader context and more complex understanding of school finance. Offers in-depth exploration of business management of financial resources, including fiscal accounting, school facilities, school transportation, financing with debt, and the nuances of school budgeting techniques.

How schools budget and spend the money they receiveAnalyzes links (or their absence) to educational goalsA candid guide to how resources are used in schools Based on extensive research and hands-on school budgeting, this volume is a systematic exposition of how money is collected and spent in the thousands of public school districts in the US, as well as parochial, private and charter schools. The volume explains both the paper trail of how money is allocated in budgets and justified in outlays, as well as the decision-making steps authorizing the collection and spending of funds. A thesis of the book is that money for schools should in all instances contribute to the promotion of educational goals. The book shows that the determination of, as well as the realization, of such goals is subject to complexities that result in questionable uses of limited resources--a result that has wide implications.

Viele sozialwissenschaftliche Untersuchungen beruhen auf Rekonstruktionen von Situationen oder Prozessen. Das Lehrbuch vermittelt anhand zweier Beispieluntersuchungen anwendungsbereites Wissen über alle Phasen solcher rekonstruierender Untersuchungen und stellt je eine Erhebungs- und eine Auswertungsmethode ausführlich vor. Die Interviewpartner werden als Experten aufgefasst, die über spezifisches Wissen über die zu rekonstruierenden Sachverhalte verfügen. Die qualitative Inhaltsanalyse ermöglicht eine systematische Extraktion relevanter Informationen aus den Interviews und ist zugleich offen für nicht erwartete Befunde. Mit Lernfragen nach jedem Kapitel und einer übersichtlichen Gliederung eignet sich das Buch als praxisorientierte Einführung.

Er war 25 Jahre lang Journalist, dann stand er von einem Tag auf den anderen auf der Straße: Dan Lyons wurde mit 52 Jahren einfach aus dem Team wegrationalisiert. Was also tun? Da kam das Jobangebot von HubSpot, einem Bostoner Start-up, genau richtig: Sie bieten dem altgedienten Journalisten einen Stapel Aktien für den nicht näher bestimmten Job des »Marketingtypen«. Was soll da schon schiefgehen? Doch es kommt, wie es bei der Konstellation kommen muss: Schnell wird klar, dass bei seinem Job bei HubSpot ungefähr alles schiefläuft, was schieflaufen kann. Seine Kollegen sind im Schnitt halb so alt, statt Bürostühlen gibt es Sitzbälle, Spam wird als »liebenswerter Marketingcontent« bezeichnet und überhaupt erinnert die Atmosphäre bei HubSpot eher an einen immerwährenden Kindergeburtstag. Dass das nicht lange gutgehen kann, ist vorprogrammiert ... Dieses Buch bietet einzigartige Einblicke in die Start-up-Welt!

Lack of family structure, violence in the schools, and overcrowded classrooms spur a never-ending cry for "reforms" to confront such issues. Quentin L. Quade cuts through the alarming din to what he feels is the real heart of the matter - the ways society assigns tax dollars dedicated to education, what he refers to as educational finance monopoly - or EFM. Financing Education examines the major problems of American K-12 education, establishes the causal connections with EFM, offers school choice without financial penalty as a powerful and obvious cure, and examines several American school choice proposals. It will be of interest to policymakers, policy analysts, educators, taxpayers, parents, and all persons concerned about America's educational quality.

Oversexed and underfucked! Diese sicherlich pointiert formulierte und auch provozierende Diagnose über den gegenwärtigen Zustand des ‚sexuellen Begehrens’ unterstellt, dass die Lust der Geschlechter aufeinander heute weitgehend abhanden gekommen sei und dass die vermeintliche, ganz wesentlich durch die Medien getragene, Übersexualisierung daran einen erheblichen Anteil habe. Und sie impliziert, dass ‚wir’ alle wissen (wollen), was guter Sex ist. Entlang dieser Leitnahmen geht die vorliegende Arbeit der gesellschaftlichen Konstruktion der Lust auf den Grund. Sie analysiert die Ideen einer ‚gelingenden Sexualität’ aus der Sicht der Wissenschaft ebenso wie das Rezeptwissen erfolgreicher Sexualratgeber von 1950 bis heute. Die aus diesen Quellen ‚rekonstruierten’ sexuellen Skripte (Dornröschen-Skript, Ken&Barbie-Skript, Adam&Eva-Skript und Ich&Ich-Skript) weisen – insgesamt betrachtet – eine typische Entwicklungslinie auf, die von der Darstellung des Geschlechtsverkehrs als Drama im Dornröschen-Skript bis hin zur als Porncast inszenierten Selbstbefriedigung im Ich&Ich-Skript führt. Der Begriff ‚underfucked’ zeigt somit nicht einen Mangel an Geschlechtsverkehr an, sondern beschreibt vielmehr seinen fortschreitenden ‚sozialen Tod’.

"In the current economic climate, how can African governments provide every child with a decent education? This report provides the statistical evidence to evaluate the policy trade-offs in responding to the rising demand for primary and secondary education in sub-Saharan Africa. The report presents the most comprehensive and timely data available on the financing of education in 45 sub-Saharan African countries. In addition, historical data enable the authors to track trends since the World Education Forum in 2000 and examine the financial impact of the steadfast commitment of many African governments to provide universal primary education. Over the past ten years, real expenditure on education has risen by 6% annually across the region. It is often assumed that the resources were used to widen enrollment. Yet, recent data show that many countries also made significant investments to improve their educational services. The report also introduces new indicators on critical issues, such as the qualifications and salaries of teachers, the running costs of schools, and the provision of textbooks. The authors examine financing trends in private education, as well as official development assistance, which accounts for more than 50% of public education budgets in some countries. In short, this report provides the facts -- not assumptions -- to analyse policy options and optimise the use of limited financial resources."--P. [4] of cover.
