Why journalism students (and many who teach it) will be glad to see the back of the Daily Mail’s editor

Screenshot-2018-5-7 Education – Views Research – The ConversationI’ve been teaching journalism students for six years now, at three very different universities. What they learn is a far cry from my days at Darlington Technical College, class of 1994, slogging through shorthand classes.

Shut down business schools? Two professors debate

Screenshot-2018-5-7 Education – Views Research – The ConversationOne of the features of today’s universities is just how much money they now spend on marketing.

New federal policy would hike student spacecraft costs, threatening technology education

Screenshot-2018-5-7 Education – Views Research – The ConversationIn a move that threatens U.S. education in science, technology, engineering and math, and could have repercussions throughout the country’s aerospace industry, the FCC is proposing regulations that may license some educational satellite programs as commercial enterprises. That could force schools to pay a US$135,350 annual fee – plus a $30,000 application fee for the first year – to get the federal license required for a U.S. organization to operate satellite communications.

Could protest curb school violence? Lessons from the opt-out movement

Screenshot-2018-5-7 Education – Views Research – The ConversationIf parents, students and others decide to stage a national school boycott, it would pay for them to take a few pages out of the playbook from a different protest: the opt-out movement that seeks to reduce burdensome testing.
