Abstract: This paper examines the disciplinary practices in middle school that target Latino males. Using Critical Race Theory and Rios’ Youth Control Complex, this comparison study explores how two distinct middle schools are excessively disciplining Latino males, causing them to miss significant learning time. Our findings demonstrate the need to look for an alternative model to improve student behavior and that does not cause students to continue to fall behind academically.

Abstract: Schools have adopted many policies and practices to control violent crimes at schools and make schools safer. Most research has focused on testing the effect of schools’ policies or practices on violent crimes in urban areas due to some stereotypes of rural communities and schools, but research finds that many rural communities have similar or even higher rates of violent crimes compared to urban areas. The purpose of this study is to test the relationship between factors that affect school violence by school locations. The findings highlight that more research should be conducted for school violence occurring at rural schools.

Abstract: Central to arguments for market reforms in education is the idea that competition and choice will spur changes in schools to be more innovative, which in turn will lead to better student outcomes. The purpose of this paper is to develop measures of innovativeness and compare the extent to which market policies influence levels of innovation across two school types: traditional public schools and charter schools.

"PRONADE schools in Guatemala: The rise and fall of a community schools program and the implications for improving school quality" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 55th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, <Not Available>. 2020-01-29 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p492770_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This panel will consider the retrospective research conducted by Alec Gershberg and Ben Meade on the National Program of Autonomous Educational Development, or PRONADE program of Guatemala. The PRONADE program were schools created, supported, and in part, managed by community members and received monitoring and support from contracted NGOs rather than the Guatemalan Ministry of Education (MINEDUC). Unlike traditional schools, PRONADE schools were staffed by contracted teachers who were hired by local communities. The schools for the most part were established in areas where primary access to education was inadequate. During this initial expansion of primary education, new PRONADE schools were shown to educate about half of the new students served during this period. At that time, the model appealed to policymakers, because PRONADE schools were faster and less expensive to put into operation than traditional schools. In part due to public dissatisfaction with the program stemming from allegations of corruption and pressure from the national teachers’ union, the program was eliminated in 2008 and PRONADE schools were converted into official schools.
This panel will examine the benefits and pitfalls of the PRONADE model and how the elimination of the program has affected education quality in the country’s rural schools. The panel will share lessons learned from the program and discuss the challenges faced in supporting education quality and school-based management with limited resources given the added difficulty of a weak state authority
