schools are experimenting with innovative ways to adapt, including switching to a four-day school week. As many as 100 school districts have implemented a four-day week, especially in Colorado where over one-third of their school districts have adopted this schedule. While you probably aren 't likely to hear students complain about having a three-day weekend every weekend, this potentially offers a lot of advantages: removing a day means spending 20 percent less on things like busing, food, and utilities--in theory. Reports have found actual savings to end up being somewhat paltry, ranging from 0.4 to 2.5 percent per year. Now on, Some critics are concerned that students may not remember the lessons from last week because of the longer weekend and negatively impact students attention during classes.

As the population increases in the ASD community so does the increasing need for research into and the development of more support structures to keep individuals out in the community and increase the number of individuals in the workforce. As of 2013 only 53.4% of individuals with ASD have worked outside the home after high school and only 20.9% are in fulltime employment.

Teach for America (TFA) began as Wendy Kopp’s senior thesis at Princeton University to address the teacher gap and teacher shortages. Kopp hoped to attract the “most promising future leaders” and enlist them to work in the most disadvantaged schools. Kopp believed that by giving TFA an aura and status top graduates would be interested in joining the organization. According to Kopp, the added prestige for TFA would “counteract teaching’s image as a ‘soft’ and downwardly mobile career”. Under this premise, Teach for America would begin operating as a 501(c)(3) in 1989.

In America’s case, we have one of the largest economies on the planet, and one of the strongest militaries as well. How ever, one thing doesn’t seem to add up.
American public schools and colleges were often at the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement, beginning with Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, but the focus on civil rights in schools began to fade away in the late 1960s as America’s Women’s Rights and Gay Rights Movements, as well as the war in Vietnam, became the hot-button issues of the day. As the 70s carried on, Americans saw the Civil Rights Movement as a moral victory for all- but the Movement was far from over as school students, teachers, and parents were continuing the push to make-up the gap and integrate all races. The development of public schooling in America from 1954 to 1980, as it pertains to racial integration, is important to understand, and can be divided into three
