Literacy leadership and enrollment: The week's most-read education news
This week, Education Dive took a look at the need for principals as literacy leaders, creating environments that excite teachers and students while prioritizing collaboration and professional learning. Keep an eye out, as the piece is just the first in a series on literacy leadership that we'll be rolling out in the coming weeks.
Also in K-12, we examined the struggles schools face when serving students who've been incarcerated, or those with incarcerated parents. The latter group isn't as small as you might expect, with as many as one in 14 children having had a parent serve time in prison or jail.
Meanwhile in higher ed, a recent Firetail study projects college enrollment will double worldwide by 2025, presenting both opportunities and challenges for U.S. campuses. And can for-profit Ubiquity University gain ground and enrollment as federal scrutiny of the sector grows and non-profit institutions adopt similar recruitment and delivery strategies?
