What Parents Want: Educational Preferences and Trade-Offs

A National Survey of K-12 Parents August 26, 2013 Author: Dara Zeehandelaar, Ph.D. Amber M. Northern, Ph.D. This groundbreaking study finds that nearly all parents seek schools with a solid core curriculum in reading and math, an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, and the development in students of good study habits, strong critical thinking skills, and excellent verbal and written communication skills. But some parents also prefer specializations and emphases that are only possible in a system of school choice.View External Website

Science in the Moment (SciMo)

Science in the Moment (SciMo) is a 3 year research study funded by the National Science Foundation at Northern Illinois University. The purpose of SciMo is to provide a descriptive account of what a variety of high school science contexts feel like from the perspective of female and male students. The overarching theoretical and conceptual perspectives for the study include: (1) Self Determination Theory focuses on the importance of students' cognitions in learning around issues concerning autonomy and competence. (2) Emergent Motivation Theory is branch of the field of positive psychology, focused on the important role of affect in learning. (3) Women's ways of knowing suggests that females and males may approach academic learning, including learning science, differently because of identified differences in how girls and boys are socialized to assume socially-sanctioned gender roles, and societal expectations for males and females academic performance.
