Bonus Digital Issue
Social media, cell phones, and other means of technology have opened new gateways for students to be harassed, bullied, and intimidated by their peers. This digital issue of Policy Priorities addresses cyberbullying, how it affects students, and what policies and prevention tools are available to help curb this new form of bullying that can cause extreme mental anguish and harm to students. Read how educator, policymakers, and the community can help stop cyberbullying.
ASCD's policy newsletter, Policy Priorities, reflects the purpose of this quarterly policy publication, which is to provide background and context for critical, timely education policy issues.
Administrators, teachers, families, policymakers, journalists, and others read Policy Priorities to better inform the decisions they make and the work they do.
Policy Priorities is published four times each year. Copies are mailed to all ASCD Premium members, and all other members have online access.
Established in 1975, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) guarantees eligible students with disabilities a free appropriate public education leading to higher education, employment, and independence. Over time, the IDEA has evolved from access to the schoolhouse to students’ full participation in general education. Today, the focus has moved to increased expectations and better academic outcomes—goals that will overlay the upcoming IDEA reauthorization. This brief previews what’s necessary to meet these goals.
We need your help! Congress is making education policy decisions that affect you, your local schools, and your students.
