“Every technology is both a burden and a blessing; not either-or, but this-and-that,” said Neil Postman in The Surrender of Culture to Technology. Postman is not shy when it comes to voicing his opinion on technology expressed in his famous quotes “What is the problem to which the new technology is the solution.” Postman is not against technology but he wants people to be aware of their dependence of technology. A notable amount of presume that this is not a recent problem. Including Kathryn Hulleman who stated “The problem with technology does not lie only with this generation images are of people are found on the internet, everyone sitting on the subway with their newspapers held up to their face, not interacting with each other.” (Image
ISLLC Standard 5 suggests that an educational leader acts with integrity, fairness, and in an ethical manner. The leader has knowledge and understanding of professional codes of ethics, frameworks and perspectives on principles. Value of the diverse school community is evident. The administrator believes in, values, and is committed to bringing ethical principles to the supervisory process putting their own interest aside for the good of the school community. They must use the influence of their leadership constructively and productively in the service of all students and their families. A leader guides activities as a role model, consider personal and professional values, as well as demonstrate a personal and professional code of ethics. They treat people fairly with dignity and respect. Legal and contractual obligations must be filled and laws and procedures should be applied fairly, wisely, and considerately.
In the present global world, we are living in the era of advanced technology like computes, smart phones, TV and so on; and I love that. As early day goes by technology is changed. Technology makes things happen so faster. In the article, “Meet your iBrain,” the authors Gary Small and Gigi Vorgan talk about the current explosion of digital technology and how is changing the way we lives, how we communicate, and it is also rapidly and profoundly altering our brains. “Our brain is evolving right now at a speed like never before” Gary and Gigi. In “Defense of Technology” Andrew O’Hagan talks about how technology is making life get better as time goes by, technology is improvement and improvement like never before. Every part of our daily life
Maya Schenwar, a 2005 graduate of Swarthmore College, is executive director of Truthout, a Web site whose purpose is to save humanity and the planet. In “Radical “Unschooling” Moms are Changing the stay-at Home Landscape” Schenwar writes about homeschooling. Like their hippie and creationist colleagues, these new homeschoolers decry the morality of public education, which they see as steeped in sexism, racism, classism heterosexism, and elitism. They prefer a type of homeschooling called “unschooling,” in which parents act not only as teachers, but guide their children toward their own explorations. Now the feminist becomes a stay-at-home mother, who needs financial support, usually from the father.
Teachers play an enormous role in a student's life. In Friday Night Lights, teachers began to feel no motivation to teach their classes anymore. This lead to a major drop in SAT scores in Permian High School, not even reaching the a 900 score in 1989. Several teaches blamed “the drop in academic performance to the effects of court-ordered desegregation” (Bissinger 131). Whites find it easier to blame it on the blacks and not take any blame for themselves. Similar in “The Problem We All Live With,” the teachers in the failing school district of Normandy, are least experienced and least qualified than those in mainly white schools. Normandy, and all other majority black schools in 2014 “get the worst course offerings, the least access to AP and upper level courses, the worst facilities” (Jones). This suggests if more whites were mixed in with blacks, each would have an equal chance at education. Between the two, Jones creates a more successful case on the topic, racial tension. Because “The Problem We All Live With” emphasizes how history is repeating itself in Missouri, she provides not only logical statistics, but outside accounts of personal experiences as to why desegregation has a high chance of not working. The numbers have been proven in both that black students have fluctuated a school’s test scores, but “The Problem We All Live With” shows the impact on a greater scale, compared to a high school

Interested parents can choose to participate on an advisory council. This committee works with GATE resource teachers, school administrators, general education teachers, and other school personnel to receive updates, provide feedback, and ask questions related to GATE programs. The advisory council meets at least three times a year in order to ensure that the education of every child is enhanced by assisting with program planning and assessment. The role of parent representatives is to serve as a liaison between the school’s GATE program and the school community. Parents may find information about joining the local advisory council by meeting with a school administrator or the GATE coordinator. Topics at advisory council meetings may include information on the identification, ALPs, different programming options, and addressing social emotional issues common to gifted children as well as continued program information. By being involved on the advisory council, parents are able to be more involved and give their input on different topics relevant to their child and from a parent’s perspective. Parents are able to give feedback on specific things that work well for their child or things that may need to be improved or changed in order to meet students’ needs more effectively. In order to best enhance the education of every gifted child, efforts are made to ensure that parents selected to act on the advisory committee represent the true demographic of the student population.

When reading and listening to lectures I was struck by the information presented in part two of the Jossey-Bass Reader on Educational Leadership: Moral Leadership. I believe this stemmed from three key ideas: trust, relationships, and business.
I wanted a longboard really bad. As bad as I wanted it I didn 't want to earn it or work for it. But for my birthday I got 100 dollars cash. So I was saving it for a longboard. As the time went on I ended up spending that money. By the time my parent would allow me to by my own longboard I only had about 30 to 40 dollars left. I think that we all know is that longboards are expensive and the one I wanted was up to 230 dollars. Do you want to know the reason why it was that expensive.
“A large fraction of our total economy has grown up around providing service and counseling to inadequate people-- and inadequate people are the main product of government compulsion schools.” The government-- the face of a nation, the commission of our founding fathers’, the building blocks of freedom-- except no one is free. Political figures and journalism authors’ place blame on 21st century students for “failing America;” however, monkey see-- monkey do. Contemporary students are the face of reform; parent-- students educational standards, shrewd motivational obligations, and the discrepancy of learning or obeying orders, only a few of the problematic burdens placed on modernized students (Gatto 25).
Albert einstein once said “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity”. Many of us have heard quotes like this and have expunged it time and time again, treating it as a virus which will go away if ignored. Though the speeches may die, the meaning will not. Einstein's quote was that of technology over 60 years ago…
Despite the contrasting environment, private school students are no different than public school students. In an online manifesto, If You Send Your Kid to Private school you are bad, Allison Benedikt, an executive editor states, “But many others go private for religious reasons, or because their kids have behavioral or learning issues, or simply because the public school in their district is not so hot”.This proves that private schools are not filled with angels, but rather kids who have behavioral issues and need that extra help. In senior writer and editor John S Kiernan’s, online article, Private Schools vs. Public Schools - Experts Weigh In, Patrick J. Wolf, Ph.D, proclaims, “Private schools also are becoming more diverse, as their enrollments increasingly include minority and low-income students”. Similar to a public school, private schooling have their low, medium and upper class students. Many have a common assumption that students are privates are academically more advanced than regular school. In an online article titled, Private Versus Public, written by the GreatSchools Staff, a clear understanding is provided about the different curriculum taught when they state, “This freedom to design their own curriculum or avoid standardized tests can result in higher standards for students — or

The importance of good parent-teacher relationships has been well documented. Research has shown that parent involvement in education benefits not only the child but also the parents and teachers (Eldridge, 2001).
