School Culture Definition – The Glossary of Education Reform #social #class #and #the #hidden #curriculum #of #work


#

School Culture

LAST UPDATED: 11.25.13

The term schoolculture generally refers to the beliefs, perceptions, relationships, attitudes, and written and unwritten rules that shape and influence every aspect of how a school functions, but the term also encompasses more concrete issues such as the physical and emotional safety of students, the orderliness of classrooms and public spaces, or the degree to which a school embraces and celebrates racial, ethnic, linguistic, or cultural diversity.

Like the larger social culture, a school culture results from both conscious and unconscious perspectives, values, interactions, and practices, and it is heavily shaped by a school’s particular institutional history. Students, parents, teachers, administrators, and other staff members all contribute to their school’s culture, as do other influences such as the community in which the school is located, the policies that govern how it operates, or the principles upon which the school was founded.

Generally speaking, school cultures can be divided into two basic forms: positive cultures and negative cultures. Numerous researchers, educators, and writers have attempted to define the major features of positive and negative school cultures, and an abundance of studies, articles, and books are available on the topic. In addition, many educational organizations, such as the National School Climate Center. have produced detailed descriptions of positive school cultures and developed strategies for improving them (given the complexity of the topic, however, it is not possible to describe all the distinctions here).

Broadly defined, positive school cultures are conducive to professional satisfaction, morale, and effectiveness, as well as to student learning, fulfillment, and well-being. The following list is a representative selection of a few characteristics commonly associated with positive school cultures:

  • The individual successes of teachers and students are recognized and celebrated.
  • Relationships and interactions are characterized by openness, trust, respect, and appreciation.
  • Staff relationships are collegial, collaborative, and productive, and all staff members are held to high professional standards.
  • Students and staff members feel emotionally and physical safe, and the school’s policies and facilities promote student safety.
  • School leaders, teachers, and staff members model positive, healthy behaviors for students.
  • Mistakes not punished as failures, but they are seen as opportunities to learn and grow for both students and educators.
  • Students are consistently held to high academic expectations. and a majority of students meet or exceed those expectations.
  • Important leadership decisions are made collaboratively with input from staff members, students, and parents.
  • Criticism, when voiced, is constructive and well-intentioned, not antagonistic or self-serving.
  • Educational resources and learning opportunities are equitably distributed. and all students, including minorities and students with disabilities.
  • All students have access to the academic support and services they may need to succeed.

Reform

School culture has become a central concept in many efforts to change how schools operate and improve educational results. While a school culture is heavily influenced by its institutional history, culture also shapes social patterns, habits, and dynamics that influence future behaviors, which could become an obstacle to reform and improvement. For example, if a faculty culture is generally dysfunctional—i.e. if interpersonal tensions and distrust are common, problems are rarely addressed or resolved, or staff members tend to argue more than they collaborate or engage in productive professional discussions—it is likely that these cultural factors will significantly complicate or hinder any attempt to change how the school operates. This simple example illustrates why school culture has become the object of so many research studies and reform efforts—without a school culture that is conducive to improvement, reform becomes exponentially more difficult.

The following describe a few representative examples of common ways that schools may attempt to improve their culture:

  • Establishing professional learning communities that encourages teachers to communicate, share expertise, and work together more collegially and productively.
  • Providing presentations, seminars, and learning experiences designed to educate staff and students about bullying and reduce instances of bullying.
  • Creating events and educational experiences that honor and celebrate the racial, ethnic, and linguistic diversity of the student body, such as hosting cultural events and festivals, exhibiting culturally relevant materials throughout the school, inviting local cultural leaders to present to students, or making explicit connections between the diverse cultural backgrounds of students and what is being taught in history, social studies, and literature courses. For related discussions, see multicultural education and voice .
  • Establishing an advisory program that pairs groups of students with adult advisor to strengthen adult-student relationships and ensure that students are well known and supported by at least one adult in the school.
  • Surveying students, parents, and teachers about their experiences in the school, and hosting community forums that invite participants to share their opinions about and recommendations for the school and its programs.
  • Creating a leadership team comprising a representative cross-section of school administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community members that oversees and leads a school-improvement initiative.

Debate

Since most members of a school community will benefit from a more positive culture, and cultural factors tend to contribute significantly to emotional states such as happiness and unhappiness or fulfillment and dissatisfaction, the concept of a more positive school culture is rarely, in itself, controversial. For this reason, debates tend to arise (if they arise at all) in response to specific reform proposals, rather than to the general goal of improving a school culture. Yet given that organizational dysfunction is, by nature, an entrenched pattern of often unconscious behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs that tend to obstruct organizational change and improvement—and because human beings can become deeply attached to emotions and behaviors that may make them less happy, fulfilled, productive, or successful—attempts to reform school cultures may be more likely encounter resistance, criticism, or controversy in schools that are most in need of cultural reforms. In recent years, problems related to school culture are being cited as reasons for why schools should be closed or why a significant percentage of the teaching faculty should be fired. In these cases, school culture may become a flashpoint in larger debates about specific school-reform policies and strategies.

Because all school cultures are unique, it is important to investigate and develop an understanding of the underlying causes of any debates, including the preexisting cultural conditions that may be contributing to the debates. To adapt Tolstoy’s famous opening line in Anna Karenina. All positive school cultures share common features, but each negative school culture is negative in its own way.

    Your Motorhome Chassis Is The Foundation To Your Home On Wheels: What Are #motorhome #chassis,class #c #motor #home,class #c #motor #homes,motor #homes,motorcoach

    Your Motorhome Chassis Is The Foundation To Your Home On Wheels: What Are Your Choices?

    Choosing the right Motorhome Chassis for your Class C should probably be in the “most important” column, right up at the top of the list.

    Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your perspective, in today’s market there is a confusing array of RV manufacturers and floor plans to choose from.

    They range in size from the small but practical pop-up trailer to the larger 40’+ Class A Motorhome. This site takes a closer look at the types of motorhome chassis that are available on the Class C Motorhome. this is the one usually built on a passenger van chassis.

    When I’m discussing the motorhome chassis, I’m referring to the part of your motor coach that gets you down the road. engine, transmission, suspension, etc. This page will focus on the three most popular chassis that make up today’s market.

    You Essentially Have Three Chassis Options When Choosing Your Class C Motorhome

    When most people buy their new rigs, they will usually end up with a choice of three motorhome chassis manufacturers: Ford, Chevy Workhorse, or Chrysler. These RV manufacturers all have various products with strong points, as well as weaknesses.

    Happily, one vehicle’s weak area may be another vehicle’s strong point. This makes the whole thing a very subjective topic. especially since each class c motor home chassis manufacturer is changing stuff like horsepower and engine torque every year. This is due, in large part, to changing emission standards and marketing goals. To keep up with this is a real challenge.

    To give you an example, the 6.0L Chevy Workhorse seems to have a better ride than Ford’s 450 E-series. But, it cannot carry as much cargo and pull as large of a vehicle as the Ford.

    Ford has a rougher ride and a bit less room in the cab of its E-Series, but it can carry more and pull more than the Chevy. It’s not a case of one’s better than the other; it’s a case of understanding exactly what you need in your motorhome’s chassis.

    The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Can Tell You All About Your New Motorcoach

    When you buy new, the literature that comes with the unit should explain what the engine horsepower is, and what type of transmission you have. But to be safe, I feel you should learn how to read the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). This is really the only way to truly know what you are getting.

    If you are buying used, knowing how to read the VIN number becomes even more important.

    You should be able to find this information on the WEB. Ford actually has a good site that enables you to decipher VIN numbers going back to the year 2000. Check out https://www.fleet.ford.com/. click on maintenance and then VIN Decoder.

    Let’s look at each rv manufacturer’s motorhome chassis, and see if we can separate things out a bit

    Ford’s E-series, pre 1997 (the Econoline), represents well over 50 percent of the class c motor homes on the road. This Ford used the E-350 series chassis with the 7.5 L V8 (250 HP 410 lb-ft), and a 4-speed transmission.

    Ford Triton V10

    It seems that you can get a 3-valve version of this Triton V10 for use in pickup trucks that has a max HP rating of 362hp. However, the E 450 cutaway motorhome chassis still remains at 305 HP.

    General Motors did some things back in the 1960’s that control decisions being made today. As an example, have you ever wondered why General Motors/Chevy does not have a V10 in their lineup? Why did Ford and Chrysler go that route and Chevy didn’t?

    Well, not wanting to open a can of worms, let me see if I can shed some light on this subject. To take a complicated topic and boil it down to its essence, let’s look at what gmhightechperformance.com has to say about this. Bear in mind that the following quote is about GM’s 454 cubic inch big-block;

    “GM’s big-block, though it has been around since 1965, is still the big-block by which others are judged. It was good in ’65 and it is still good in ’02. At least one of the existing V-10s would fail to produce the results of Chevy’s big-block V-8, if push came to shove.”

    GM High Performance also claims that GM actually poured a couple V10 cast iron blocks and were very serious about producing this engine. Anyway, they did not follow through, and it seems that this is not something that is going to happen.

    The bean counters finally came to the conclusion that their V8’s were good enough.

    Chevy’s big-block V8 was carbureted up to 1996. At this time, it was updated with fuel-injection and was dubbed the 7400 Vortec.

    In 2001 a stroked version (to stroke an engine is to increase engine displacement by increasing piston stroke into to cylinder bore) of the 454 realized a displacement of 8100cc (494 cubic inches). This is your 8.1L Vortec V8. You will find this big block V8 in the Kodiak C4500/5500 motorcoach.

    GM also makes a Vortec 6.0L gas engine. This provides another choice for our Class C Motorhome chassis. This small-block V8 now puts out, for 2008, 323 H/P at 373 ft-lbs of torque. Now, check this out.

    Chevy has a 5-year/100,000 mile warranty on this part of your motorhome chassis. They also offer Free 24/7 emergency
    roadside assistance on this engine.

    They even have a number to call so you can
    find the nearest dealer;
    1-877-4CHEVRV (1-877-424-3878)

    Today when we are talking about Chrysler’s motorhome chassis, we are usually referring to Mercedes-Benz/Chrysler. They use a small Turbo-Diesel (3.0L CDI 6-cylinder, 154-hp) in a Dodge Sprinter Chassis. The advantage is very good gas mileage.

    There is a downside of this small displacement powerplant. It is the cumulative result of a motorhome chassis that mandates an overall smaller motorhome configuration. one that some may consider a step up from the Class B Motorcoach.

    It has been appointed well, and would be a comfortable rig for a couple of people. if they did not need to bring a lot of stuff. I think the CCC on this is less than 400 lbs.

    However, there appears to be a new player on the block. I have only seen this product being used by one manufacturer.

    The new SuperMax is equipped with a 305-hp Cummins ISL engine and is available in 31- and 34-foot floor-plans with a $95,000 retail base price. It will have a 19,500-lb GVWR. The company estimates the new chassis will get the diesel SuperMax 14 mpg.

    ISL Diesel In-Line 6 Cylinder

    This is a brand new unit; I have not been able to look it over. But at a starting price of less than 100K, I think it could be competitive in today’s market.

    It seems, however, that Mercedes has discontinued truck production in the US. A quote from RV Business sums things up. “Based on what we can tell, a version will still be available from a plant in Mexico, but it won’t have the Sterling nameplate,” said Claude Donati, Gulf Stream’s executive vice president for motorized. “But they are planning to make some specification changes for the 2010 model year so we are assessing the situation. We’re good for 2009.” So we will just have to wait and see.

    There Is A New Tire On The Block

    As a kind of heads up, Michelin Tire has introduced a new RV Tire. The Super Single X One XRV 445/50R22.5 is eliminating the
    need for dual rear tires.

    The X One is engineered to offer exceptional handling, improved maneuverability, and reduced maintenance with no inside dual to reach. There is a potential weight savings of about 200 pounds and a decrease in fuel consumption of up to 2%. Some folks are saying that they have noticed an increase in their unit’s stability and ride smoothness.

    Some Additional Thoughts About Tires And Tire Issues

    Here are a couple of things to consider. if you do not keep the proper air pressure in your RV tires, and keep them well maintained. your motorhome chassis selection becomes a moot point!

    Also, it may be that your Class C Motorhome tires will simply reach an exporation date. If this were to happen, could your tire have good tread and appear healthy. but still become unstable and cause an unexpected blow-out on the road?

So System Analysts are required to analyze, transform and ultimately resolve the business problems with the help of technology

    A Business Analyst (BA) is responsible for requirements development and requirements management. Specifically, a Business Analyst elicits, analyzes, validates and documents business, organizational and/or operational requirements. Solutions are not predetermined by the Business Analyst, but are driven solely by the requirements of the business. Solutions often include a systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement or organizational change.

    We provide hands-on, instructor-led classes at our more than 300 locations. You may also attend our live classes from your home/office PC via our Remote Classroom Instruction (RCI ) technology.
