Understanding how teachers are currently being prepared to teach students from various backgrounds is a beginning step in the process of creating a model for a comprehensive culturally sustaining teacher education program. Such a program could be a vanguard for producing educators (those who plan on going into the classroom and those who will go into educational leadership) who can build the expertise and feel efficacious enough to work toward revamping the American education system which is currently failing our children from multiple backgrounds. Education in the U.S. is culturally homogenous and not competitive on an international scale. Here, teacher preparation is identified as the proverbial key toward unlocking impactful systemic equitable change in the realm of education. This book provides context for the current cultural climate of teacher education in the United States, and provides direction for next steps in enacting change.

be finishing up their mystery stories. I asked them to get organized tonight, to be ...

This report primarily focuses on the Department of Defense (DoD) oversight of serious incidents (such as attacks, deaths, injuries, and property damage) involving private security contractors (PSCs) in Iraq. It examines DoD?s (1) policies, procedures, and practices for reporting, investigating, and remediating those incidents and (2) efforts to identify trends and lessons learned. Because some Department of State (DoS) PSCs report their serious incidents through DoD channels as well as DoS channels, SIGIR reviewed pertinent DoS policies and procedures related to that reporting. The report responds to a mandate in the National Defense Authorization Act for 2008 (Public Law 110-181), which requires audits of the processes used to report, document, investigate, and prosecute (where appropriate) incidents involving private security contractors in Iraq. The U.S. government has relied extensively on PSCs in Iraq to protect personnel, supplies, and facilities. Although issues have surfaced over the years concerning the oversight, control, cost, and legal status of PSCs, the Blackwater incident in September 2007, during which 17 Iraqi civilians were killed, brought to the forefront concerns about the U.S. government's oversight and control of the PSCs. In December 2007, DoD and DoS signed a memorandum agreeing that they would jointly develop, implement, and follow core standards, policies, and procedures for the accountability, oversight, and discipline of PSCs in Iraq. Their objective was to reduce the number and impact of serious incidents. DoS assigned responsibility for implementing its part of the agreement to the U.S. Embassy, which in turn delegated responsibility to its Regional Security Office (RSO). DoD assigned its responsibility to the Multi-National Force-Iraq (MNFI). MNF-I established Contractor Operations Cells (CONOC)1 to coordinate PSC missions and to gather, assemble, and distribute information on serious incidents involving PSCs.

In the last few years, the focus of the training of science teachers has shifted significantly towards the school based experience. Drawing on the successful Oxford University science internship scheme, this book presents insights of mentoring from several perspectives, providing a rich resource of case study material. After introductory chapters dealing with the rationale for the science internship course, the reader is presented with: logs of mentors' and students' experiences that offer 'windows' onto the mentoring process at different stages in the PGCE course; cameos of students who have been at the centre of a range of complex training situations; reflections of past PGCE students; and accounts of the experiences of heads of science departments when managing the placement of science PGCE students in their schools.
