A little learning is a dangerous thing. - Alexander Pope The tragic deaths of 26 people shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., included 20 young children and six educators. Many more children might have been killed or injured had it not been for the brave and decisive actions of the teachers in the school. Teacher Magazine: Community Forums I think the question here is less about whether or not master's degrees have a strict causal effect on teaching and learning and more about whether or not public schools should have lock-step pay increases (for seniority or degrees earned). Or, lockstep teaching assignments (5 or 6 classes with a prep, a study hall, and a 25 minute lunch).

Your Favorite RC Blog RC helicopter or rc airplanes ? this has always been a good and important question especially for beginners. i myself live rc helicopter much better than rc airplanes, not for anything else, but i don’t have much time to drive out of the town to find a place to play an airplane, i’d rather staying at home, flying indoor, doing some bit hover, make some crashes, it will never hurt anything except a cat once, and the wall sometimes. Basically rc helicopters is more difficult to control, more flexiable and react promptly to orders, so you need to concentrate on it when you are playing. rc airplanes is relatively easier to control, it’s usually bigger in size though. And to diy an airplane will be much of fun, i have a plan of building a big one when i’m retired.
