Joseph Yelich is currently the superintendent of schools for the Oneonta City School District. Before coming to Oneonta, Joe was instrumental in building relationships with the colleges near his town with the local high school by creating a program that enabled students to take college courses while attending high school. This has been what he has been working on since he arrived at Oneonta. It is clear that his mission was to eventually give students the opportunity to graduate high school with either a college degree or credits that are accepted at any SUNY school.
The person’s role in the reform:
Mr. Yelich’s role in in implementing this reform would be using his active role in the community to bring together people in a common goal. Surprisingly, Oneonta has been a college town for over a …show more content…
Yelich has seen this program through in a previous district and it has had profound positive effects—students at his old school have graduated high school with not only a high school diploma, but also AAS degrees or as many as 24 credits that are transferable to SUNY schools across the state.
How the implementation is going/problems According to Mr.Yelich, there have been some roadblocks to the implementation. First, the SUNY 4 year University in our city charges tuition. That limits our ability as a district to offer those classes. Not all students can afford the classes and the district cannot pay for them. The smaller community colleges have been offered incentives to offer those classes at little or no cost. So, the challenge is working with schools that have funding but are not in our immediate community and arranging for the educators in both schools to collaborate.

LITERATURE REVIEW #1: The Prize In the book, The Prize, written by Dale Russakoff discusses the issues urban schools face with the limits of money and a top-down approach in how to run the schooling system. The book is based of Newark schools, and starts off with New Jersey politicians Cory Booker and Chris Christie who are troubled with the $100 million pledge from Mark Zuckerberg to transform the Newark school. Money is limited to reform education, even more so with the top-down autocracy of the locally elected officials who are not allowing reform to take place. The book further describes the situations in the Newark school, with the problems of poverty and violence at the forefront of it all.
This is a program that helps students transfer from a community college to a four-year college. Students can get their associate's and bachelor's degree with 120 units. And students who complete an AA-T or AS-T can get a special GPA when applying to CSU impacted campuses or majors. If you are a high school student, still take college-track courses and talk to a counselor about your plans. If you are a community college student, talk to your counselor about which transfer major is the best.
Free community college should be supported because it will not only advance careers and education, but it will help the nation’s economy, build a stable government, and more importantly, give fulfillment to American
However, it is still an issue for students to cough up that money. The idea of making community college free to any student in America has been a dream for low income students for a while. President Obama’s desire to make the tuition of community college to everyone in the nation would only make it difficult for students to get a free education, limit them to essential resources, and discourage students from applying to four year universities. Granting free community college tuition to incoming freshmen will draw “more students to already crowded community colleges”. Along with the overcrowded campuses, a very long waiting list will soon form making it just as competitive to get into a four year university.
I support this initiative of small learning communities because I agree with Booth, that placing students into small learning communities will benefit students in the sense that they will be able learn, help, and work together in the courses they will need in order to be successful in their future careers. A positive thing about this idea is that it since they are placed in small groups it will allow students to stay focused on the

Ten years ago, I immigrated to the United States and ever since I have been an undocumented immigrant. Due to my legal status in the United States, I felt like I was restricted from certain situations and possessions and would never be able to succeed. I was not living the normal life of a seven-year-old. Instead, I had to learn to cope and adapt to a whole new culture. Even though the drastic change at such a young age was a challenge, it has shaped who I am today.

Gisselle Zepeda Mr. Lievre American Government Credit 5 Board of Education of Westside Community Schools Versus Mergens The Equal Access Act upheld by the Supreme Court in Board of Education v. Mergens, 1990, requires public secondary schools to allow access to religiously based student groups on the same basis as other student clubs. The school administration denied a group of students their right to create a Christian after school club. The students intended for their club to have just the same privileges and club meetings as all other after school clubs. The schools excuse being that it lacked faculty support which led to the school and district being sued by the students.
As stated before, the proposal creates more job opportunities which encourage economic growth. In addition to the great aid the proposal offers economically, it also offers vast social prosperity. Many of the people attending community college are very ambitious and are very affable. The environment in a community college is very sociable which advocates a better education.
Today there is a huge debate between Common Core Standards and the Alabama College and Career Readiness Standards. These two standards are highly debated and investigated amongst teachers, government officials, and parents to understand which standards will enhance student’s academic knowledge. Some state political boards do not agree with the new adoption if the Common Core Standards. After researching both standards and gaining my own opinion, I think to adopt the new Common Core Standards is a positive thing for our school systems. Even though it has some negative like difficult transition for students, standards are vague, and unequal access to technology in the classroom and at home (Meador, 2017).

According to Good Shepherd Services (GSS) website ((Good Shepherds Services), their transfer school program has been developed in 50/50 partnership with the NYC Department of Education (DOE). This program serves young people between the ages of 16 and 21 who dropped out of school and think of coming back (usually over-age students); students who were not successful in regular school and off-track to graduating before they turn 21; usually students who enroll into the transfer school program have 50% less credits they would normally need to graduate on time. The “nationally recognized transfer high school model integrates the youth development practices and expertise of Good Shepherd within a rigorous, standards-based instructional setting”
