Do snow days negatively impact student learning?

While past studies have suggested that snow day school closings reduce student learning, new research shows that closings due to snow days have little to no impact on achievement. Instead, it is individual student absences that affect student achievement, especially in math. Find out more here: http://ednxt.co/1xBuY5I #snowdays   #edpolicy  
Students who stay home when school is in session are a much larger problem

Dept. of Ed's Office of Civil Rights has announced that any disparities in education resources related to race or national origin, such as English language proficiency, could trigger an investigation by the agency.

In a recently released Education Next article, Michael J. Petrilli suggests that schools can play a role in discouraging young adults from entering into unwed, unplanned parenthood by providing career training and helping young people develop character traits like drive and prudence: http://ednxt.co/1ETrWIK

In dozens of U.S. cities, more than one in five students now attend charter schools, leading many policymakers and the public to wonder how large a share of urban schools should be charters? 

In a new Education Next forum Scott Pearson & John H. “Skip” McKoy defend Washington D.C.’s mix of traditional and charter schools, while Neerav Kingsland defends New Orleans' all-charter system.

Along the east coast, charters have traditionally been established to give low-income parents the chance to send their kids to better schools. But from Texas to California, middle-class parents, disenchanted with the local schools, are looking for alternative educational options for their children.
Could the influx of middle-class families into charter schools be a “political game changer”?

"Arts education—drama, music, and visual media—offers the most effective vehicles we have to deliver one of the oldest and most central purposes of education: to create citizens who know how to raise their voices in conversation with the world around them, whatever (and in whichever form) that conversation might be." - Alicia Arman http://ednxt.co/1GtHQdv

In addition to strengthening education and job training so more young men are “marriageable,” Brookings' Isabel Sawhill says "we need to educate women about their contraceptive choices, and make them available at no cost to the recipient" to help drive down rates of unplanned, unwed parenthood: http://ednxt.co/1MUvz6G

The percentage of children living in single-parent families in the United States has increased markedly over the past 50 years.  Now new research published in Education Next shows that by the age of 24, individuals who lived in single-parent families as adolescents have received fewer years of schooling and are less likely to attain a bachelor’s degree than those from two-parent families.

While children being raised in single-parent homes has become an increasingly prevalent feature of modern American poverty, consideration of the breakdown of the American family has remained “off-limits” in social policy discussions by both conservatives and liberals. 
To flourish, our nation must face some hard truths about how family and poverty affects children: http://ednxt.co/1yKFc3O

Guiding the way toward bold change that is needed in American K–12 education.
Introduction
In the stormy seas of school reform, this journal will steer a steady course, presenting the facts as best they can be determined, giving voice (without fear or favor) to worthy research, sound ideas, and responsible arguments. Bold change is needed in American K–12 education, but Education Next partakes of no program, campaign, or ideology. It goes where the evidence points.
