Abstract

Purpose

This paper focuses on the Obama administration’s American Graduation Initiative (AGI) and the associated completion agenda.

Design/methodology/approach

In this paper, we provide an in-depth overview of the AGI with a focus on: (a) articulating the rationale that prompted the AGI; (b) describing the four primary components of the reform effort; (c) examining the political forces that led to its demise; (d) investigating the derivatives of the AGI in the form of private foundation and state-level efforts to bolster success rates; and (e) illuminating criticisms of the AGI that could have served to complicate the initiative’s success.

Originality/value

In the latter section of the paper, we also offer recommendations for future national and state policy.

Abstract

The Batten and Allen story is a success story that follows the pattern of so many successful enterprises. The ingredients have to be first the people involved and their determination, endurance, patience and not least a market. Stamping of metal parts is to a great extent the role of a jobbing shop in many cases where companies have grown up almost as satellites of larger companies and have met the needs of the customer as it has grown and of course suffered with it also when bad times have come along.

Abstract

Hardly had the dust settled on the first highly successful Printed Circuit World Convention, held in London at the Cafe Royal in 1978, than plans were laid for its successor. It had been decided to hold the next one three years later in Munich and within a few weeks its policy and operating committees had been formed.

Abstract

The internationalization of education introduces notable cross-cultural challenges and benefits for consideration by scholars of comparative and international education. When teachers move overseas to work, they become sojourners, “between-society culture travelers” (Ward et al., 2005, p. 6). Living and working between cultures offers a substantial set of both challenges and opportunities. Acculturation theory (Sam & Berry, 2006) was initially understood as culture shock (Oberg, 1960), an occupational malady. Acculturation theory seeks to explain adaptation processes and has mostly examined sojourners whose intent is to permanently adapt to a new culture. Educators who are sojourners require temporary states of adaptation. This chapter narrates a subset of a qualitative study examining educator acculturation from an asset orientation to explore what benefits acculturation offers to sojourning educators who work in international schools overseas. Findings include that even highly stressful episodes of culture shock can manifest in long-term benefits, such as the development of personal and professional resilience and self-leadership strategies, as well as the reflective curating of one’s personal and professional identity, which may include the development of an interstitial identity. These benefits serve to increase educators’ cultural competencies, to prepare educators for supporting sojourning students who are acculturating, and to prepare educators for smoother acculturation experiences afterwards.
