Abstract: In an effort to determine community support and attitudes towards
sports in public education, a statewide poll of Arizona residents
will be conducted. The survey will examine how Arizona residents
feel sport participation among K-12 students affects student academic
achievement. Responses will be compared among parents of students in
K-12 and persons who do not have a child currently in K-12.
Additionally, attitudes of parents who have children currently
participating in sports will be investigated. Community size will
also be examined in relation to attitudes surrounding sport

Publication Type: Poster
Abstract: The presentation will summarize findings and recommendations from a Title VI-funded study of the challenges and prospects for improving international exposure and options in the undergraduate training of prospective elementary and secondary school teachers. The research covered such topics as curriculum requirements, faculty development, advising, foreign language study, and governance issues related to international education. Because history courses are an important part of the training of K-12 teachers, the findings are relevant for those who teach their courses and for those who determine curriculum requirements.

The research data come from more than 400 interviews at 41 institutions (research and comprehensive universities and liberal arts colleges) across the United States and with current teachers, producing a daunting amount of information for an “exploratory” study. More than a third of the interviews were in Arts and Sciences, where prospective teachers actually take most of their courses (notwithstanding a perception that they are in “Education” programs). From the data on curriculum and course requirements we see that most teachers are required to have at least one and probably more history courses, indicating that history faculty are important players in the teacher training field, whether or not they think of themselves in those terms. The research findings point to mostly modest adjustments that could and should be made – university-wide, in Education, and in Arts and Sciences – to prepare prospective teachers for their work in an increasingly interconnected world. The teachers-in-training will, after all, also be preparing future students of history.

The recommendations that are most relevant for historians include suggestions about course revisions, overall curriculum for the declared teacher-in-training, advising, foreign language instruction, and the role of general education. Indeed, many of the research findings and recommendations can be relevant to undergraduate programs in other professional fields as well – and to Arts and Sciences majors themselves.

"How Governance of K-12 Education Influences Policy Outputs and Student Outcomes in the United States" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott, Loews Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-10-15 <>
Publication Type: Proceeding
Abstract: Even though K-12 education policy has become an increasingly salient topic in the United States, few individuals understand the diverse arrangements states have devised to govern America's schools. Describing that variability and then using it to explain student academic success and state policy production is this paper’s empirical goal. That focus provides a new test of institutional theories of executive power in policy networks, which predict that more powerful executives in less fragmented networks are likely to produce desirable outputs and outcomes. The results strongly suggest that states perform better when governors are empowered to appoint leaders of state education agencies, but that performance wanes if governors can appoint agency leaders and members of state education boards. The results are more mixed regarding education finances, where fragmentation has inconsistent impacts on student academic success, but does appear to attenuate effective policy production.
