Article here. Excerpt:. 'Today marks six years to the day since the Education Department's Office for Civil Rights released the infamous "Dear Colleague" letter obligating universities to investigate sexual assault and harassment.. The letter that launched the recent phase of fact-free investigatory proceedings and one-sided tribunals was just 19 pages long. It began with the assertion that sexual violence is a form of sexual harassment and is therefore prohibited by Title IX, which mandates gender equality at educational institutions that receive federal funding. In its letter, OCR also asserted that the sexual violence problem on college campuses was out of control, as evidenced by the 1-in-5 statistic ...

At EMU, education students are in local classrooms, observing and learning, by their fifth week of classes. One benefit of observing and teaching in classrooms near our campus is the large diversity present in the surrounding school divisions. These school divisions offer a rich variety of diversity including cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic. Field experiences are embedded throughout program so that education students are in the field nearly every semester.

The Early Learning Center provides valuable interactions for EMU students with the 2-, 3-, and 4-year-olds enrolled at the center..

Our daughter Helen is teaching full time at a school in the northern suburbs on a six month contract (two terms). She has just received a letter from Education Department staffing saying that she has been terminated and will have to apply for her own position again during the school holidays. Say what???? She has a contract for the two terms. No need to panic though as the Principal and Deputy Principal at the school also got terminated at the same time. They have assured her that they will sort it out. I wonder if they would have been as keen to help if they weren't in the same boat. The Education Department couldn't organise a pissup in a brewery! A couple of years ago a friend who teaches science in a city school got her first pay slip for the year informing her that she was a gardener at a school in the south of the state. It took about a month to sort that one out ...
