Reforming Our Schools: Nonacademic Support for Students is Essential. And then there's the no excuses crowd -- KIPP schools being one high profile example -- versus, for lack of a better term, the all excuses crowd.
As much as a no-excuse school is important this article talks about some of the issues. – mariegaskins
In other words, those who don't accept that poverty is an excuse for poor academic performance versus those who think that it dooms a child or school to low performance.
The Kipp Schools Model Us versus them debates are always concerning in general; they both ignore and hide the large field of gray between two very opposing positions, and they can often prevent us from having fruitful conversations in which real progress in education reform could be made. The no excuses debate has been particularly concerning recently. KIPP is getting lots of press thanks to a Mathematica study that found in general KIPP schools improve the academic performance of their largely disadvantaged student populations.

Sugata Mitra: The child-driven education. ED530059 - Charter School Autonomy: A Half-Broken Promise, Thomas B. Fordham Institute, 2010-May. For nearly two decades, charter founders have opened schools across the land on the basis of a distinctive education bargain: operational autonomy--freedom from restrictions typically placed on public schools--in exchange for strong results-based accountability.
This article discusses the autonomy of charter schools. I gives them a grade as to how they are doing. – mariegaskins
During that time, many have studied the "results" and "accountability" side of this arrangement, yet to everyone's knowledge there has never before been a systematic national appraisal of the autonomy side.
Despite the importance of autonomy to the charter concept--and notwithstanding innumerable anecdotes about various infringements on these freedoms--amazingly little is known about how free (or hamstrung) charter schools really are. Yet such information is fundamental to examining the state of the charter school movement in America and to appraising its value and its potential to advance American education. This study begins to fill that vexing information gap via a national review of charter school autonomy. Thomas B. 1393 138 1 SM.

"The Psychological Resilience of Spousal Caregivers of Multiple Scleros" by Marisa Diane Diaz. Abstract The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine an under-researched topic: the relationship between psychological resilience and personal growth with spousal caregivers of patients diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Chronic illnesses contribute to potentially stressful changes (i.e., lifestyle, quality of life, financial wellbeing, and interpersonal relationships) for the caregiver. The theoretical foundation for this study was Walsh's family resilience theory, which contends that resilience is vital for coping with stressful life experiences and leading a more successful life.
