Education Dive--5 big challenges confronting districts — and how they're overcoming them

Balancing school security with a nurturing environment and recovering from teacher strikes are among challenges districts will continue to face in the coming year.

With the school year in full swing, there’s no scarcity of challenges education leaders will be working to overcome in the 2019-20 school year. 

Districts are facing teacher strikes, administrators are wading through various curricula to fit students’ evolving needs, and leaders are addressing the evergreen question of how to close the revolving door of teachers.

Edutopia--How to Get Started Teaching Coding

A three-step plan to help teachers in any subject and any grade teach the foundations of coding.

I first learned about coding and computer science (CS) in college about 20 years ago. Looking back, not much has changed in the foundational concepts or core practices in CS. What has changed is who can teach it and where it can live in the curriculum—today educators in any subject can teach coding.
