Kudos for JLE Members
Posted October 6th, 2010 by Virginia Mattingly
Congratulations to Holly Hudelson and Jamie Izlar whose notes were chosen for publication in the JLE's October 2010 issue. Holly's note discusses the 2009 Supreme Court case, Safford Unified School District #1 v. Redding, and argues that the assistant principal who ordered the strip search to find ibuprofen on thirteen-year-old Redding should not have been granted qualified immunity. Her note is entitled "Spare the Rod, but a Strip Search Is Okay? The Effect of Qualified Immunity and Allowing a Strip Search in School." Jamie's note examines how the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has failed immigrant, English language learner, and limited English proficient students and proposes that NCLB should be amended to include social integration program provisions to help close the achievement gap between English speaking and non-English speaking students. Her note is entitled "Globalizing No Child Left Behind: A Viable Catalyst in Implementing Progress for Social Integration Programs for Immigrant, English Language Learner, and Limited English Proficient Students." Jamie's paper has also been accepted to the Hawaii International Conference on Education and she will be presenting her paper at the conference in Honolulu in January 2011.
