Do You Believe In Colorblindness Or In Multiculturalism?

http://anniemurphypaul.com/2016/06/colorblindness-vs-multiculturalism/ 

 In America’s political sphere, and on our university campuses especially, the question of how we should handle differences—racial, ethnic, cultural—has assumed front-and-center importance. You might say there are two approaches available. One is to assume the posture of “colorblindness”: to downplay differences, to say “I treat everyone the same.” The other is to adopt the stance of “multiculturalism”: to acknowledge, embrace, and make accommodations for differences among people.

Why Schools Must Incorporate More Arts Learning

http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/education_futures/2016/05/why_schools_must_incorporate_more_arts_learning.html?cmp=SOC-SHR-FB 

Research has indicated that arts inclusion increases science and math comprehension. It has been documented that students not only enhance their creativity but also their linguistic skills and self-confidence when exposed to the arts. Schools all across the country are incorporating more art education into all subjects to aid students in becoming well rounded learners. Since traditional "art" classes are some of the first to take a hit when budgets are slashed, every other subject area can benefit from finding ways to create learning opportunities using visual, performing, and written arts.

Against “Personalized Learning”

http://anniemurphypaul.com/2016/05/against-personalized-learning/ 

 One reason why the notion of personalized learning is so popular—one reason it is such a “head-nodder phrase”—is that it recognizes that students are all individuals, with different experiences and different preferences. At the same time, “children are more alike than different in how they think and learn,” as Riley quotes his hero (and mine), the cognitive psychologist Dan Willingham. We need a system of education that acknowledges and accommodates both realities.
