Abstract: In this paper, I am going to explore how gender stereotype shaped barriers and opportunities for Geun-hye Park’s successful presidential campaign in 2012. The late authoritarian leader’s daughter being the first woman president in South Korea drew domestic and international attention as well as raised concerns over the future of democracy in the relatively recently industrialized and democratized country.
Following a framework presented in Cracking the Highest Glass Ceiling edited by Rainbow Murray (2010), I am going to examine the gendered media coverage of Park in Presidential Election in terms of gender stereotypes, media framing, double binds, and external factors. I am going to conduct content analyses of the way five major newspapers in South Korea across the ideological spectrum framed the first woman presidential candidate for four months during her bid for the office, from the day she won the candidacy of Saenuri Party to Election Day. Through this study, I will assess how useful the existing theories and frameworks on women running for top national executive offices in explaining the role of gender in the recent presidential election in South Korea.

Abstract: In 1998 a mother tongue based multilingual education program was initiated in the small town of Lubuagan in the northern Philippines. Lubuagan is home to approximately 15,000 people speaking the Lilubuagan language. Children begin their school speaking only one language while teachers are to use two other languages in the classroom as media of instruction, Filipino and English. The program adjusts the teaching and curriculum so that learners study curriculum content through their mother tongue and study Filipino and English as second languages before learning through those languages. This innovation requires extensive teacher training to re-orient teachers to teaching in a language they have previously used only for oral communication. Mother tongue based education introduces early literacy possibilities and interactive teaching including dialogue between the teacher and learners. While the development of teacher training and curriculum is on-going, results of this developing program are encouraging. Ongoing yearly assessment reveals positive results which have encouraged educators and politicians to rethink the language in education policy. This paper will discuss the development of the program and the impact of current results.

Abstract: Research shows that the transition to post-secondary education is often fraught with academic, social, and cultural challenges for much of the student population (Clark, 2005; Terenzini et al., 1994; Upcraft, Gardner, & Barefoot, 2005). Students in transition experience changes in instruction, learning, and teacher expectations; new demands on time and effort for studying; fluctuations in self-efficacy; and variations in definitions of success (Clark, 2005). This study utilizes evocative autoethnography (Ellis & Bochner, 2006) to retrospectively explore the author’s experiences of learning, success, and failure during her first year of university. This autoethnography is then examined alongside a qualitative research study on current gifted students’ first year experiences. Examining lived experiences using autoethnographic methods “with the intent of understanding self and its connection to others” (Chang, 2008) within a sociocultural context helps shed light on the first year experience and the challenges inherent in that transition for gifted or high-ability students.

Abstract: The Students First Mentoring Program (SFMP) is a U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education (FIPSE)-funded intervention to improve retention of low-income, first-generation students at Portland State University. Combining best practices from already established programs such as Student Support Services and Educational Opportunity Program with theoretical concepts from role theory, this program offers a wide range of support services for first-generation college students designed to make the shift to college life less difficult and, in the process, improve student retention rates. In this paper we present a brief over-view of the SFMP, examine the literature on student retention and role mastery, present a conceptual model – the two path model of student academic performance at college, and discuss three specific program elements that are drawn from role theory.

Abstract: While previous studies have examined the linkages between educational success and
marriage and fertility transitions, most have focused on educational performance as a predictor of
mate selection and childbearing consequences. In contrast, this study proposes that the timing of
marriage and childbirth have significant implications for eventual educational attainment. Using a
sample of 11,933 young adults, the analyses demonstrate that marriage and childbirth prior to
enrollment in college are indeed detrimental to educational attainment. However, marriage during
the college years actually appears to increase the likelihood of college completion for both sexes,
and particularly for young adult women. The implications of these findings, particularly in regard
to young adult transitions, are discussed.
