Dec. 30th Call. 48: Three issues from 1999 to watch in 2000
The beginning of a new year is really only the progression of one day after the next, natural and mundane, but human custom has made it so that we note it as the crossing of a threshold. This customary observance is heightened now as the upcoming threshold is especially (but only) numerically significant (from year 1999 to year 2000). Here Clarion Call bows to custom to mark this crossing by presenting three higher-education issues of 1999 that will bear watching in 2000.
Dec. 23rd Call. 47: UMass Student Concocts Sexual Assault for "The Cause"
A University of Massachusetts at Amherst (UMass) student who reported being sexually assaulted during a November anti-rape student rally has admitted she made up the attack.
Dec. 16th Call. 46: High Salary Increases Lead To Other Problems at Community Colleges
Even as many North Carolina colleges and universities are asking for more money to raise faculty salaries, several community colleges say they need less money for faculty pay, but more money for other “needs.”
Dec. 12th Call. 44: UNC, Public College Students Post High Family Income / Students forgo grad school for Internet business
On average, students at the “flagship” universities of state college systems have a higher family income than their counterparts at private colleges and universities, according to a recent Washington Post report. The University of North Carolina is no exception.
A growing percentage of students are opting out of graduate school in order to stake their claim on the booming Internet business, according to a recent New York Times report.
Dec. 9th Call. 45: UNC’s Partnership Raises Questions
Sam Houston, executive director of UNC’s Center for School Leadership Development (NCCSLD), who had earlier told Clarion Call that NCCSLD was not in partnership with the International Center for Leadership in Education and its leader, Dr. Willard Daggett, went back on his word this week. In a report to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee on Tuesday, Houston said that NCCSLD's relationship with Daggett's firm was, indeed, a “partnership.”
