Required Readings

Required Readings, 5 December 2013

Good morning, teachers and learners! It’s the run-up to the end of the semester for me, but I’ve still gathered together some readings for you.

A female graduate student, “left to die on the vine”, is now in court to sue the University of Oregon for gender discrimination. The Chronicle’s article is good reading, if you can get through the accursed paywall. You can also get some (dated) background here.

Some zero-tolerance policies in K-12 schools are on the wane, as they weight heavily on minority children.

Out of foster care and into college – more from the New York Times.
