About the School of Education

In July 2012, Arcadia’s Department of Education transitioned into the University’s School of Education. This new status is reflective of the University’s deep and sustained commitment to educating teachers and educational leaders through rigorous and personally meaningful experiences that cultivate creative and critical understandings of teaching and learning. These

hallmarks inform our approach, through which we aim to make Arcadia’s education students the great teachers and educational leaders the world needs.

New Podcast from the National Institute for Out-of-School Time:
Journeys in Youth Work

Youth work is a sacred opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of children and youth. In a new publication from Information Age Publishing (IAP), curated and edited by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST), personal narratives written by youth workers shine a light on the intricate connections between research and practice, touching upon both the vulnerability and triumph of youth development work. In this podcast series, youth workers read excerpts from their essays, and share how youth workers’ lived experiences inspire the ability to build the relationships that are the foundation of positive and healthy youth development. From relationships comes engagement, and from engagement, transformation—centered in equity, inclusion, and belonging. No one is better able to advocate for these truths than the professionals who found themselves—by whatever means—working with young people to bring positive change to their lives, their communities, and our world.

Pa. lawmakers won’t appeal the landmark school funding decision

Pennsylvania lawmakers won’t appeal the landmark Commonwealth Court decision finding the state’s school funding unconstitutional — meaning they now must fix the broken system.

The deadline to appeal Commonwealth Court Judge Renee Cohn Jubelirer's ruling was Friday. Lawmakers are now tasked with fixing the unconstitutional system.

Endowment Fund Established to Support SOE Students in meeting the costs of becoming a teacher

Recognizing the additional costs borne by students seeking to become teachers (clearances, shots, certification exams, etc.), Patricia L. Squire left money in her will to establish an endowment to help meet these costs. The endowment is set up so that others may donate to it, as well. Patricia Squire graduated from Beaver College in 1962 and taught third and fourth graders in Springfield Township, Montgomery County for 30 years.

This support will mature (and become available for distribution) in 12-18 months. At that time, it will provide support for 2-3 Arcadia students with demonstrated financial need each year. As the fund grows, it will provide support for more students.

Thanks are extended to Brigette Bryant, VP for Advancement and Alumni Engagement for her vision in nurturing this fund from conception to completion.

“The pandemic has had a psychological effect among Gen Z-ers on the path to college. At the most basic level, incoming students are worried about their safety and well-being, and they're hesitant about paying for a residential experience that’s even partly virtual.” — Chronicle of Higher Education

Higher education has experienced demographic droughts and global calamities before, but rarely have both occurred simultaneously. Students are worried about their safety, and hesitant about paying for a partially virtual residential experience. The pandemic has also had a dramatic psychological effe...

Free Webinar from TC Press: Can We Make Schools Work Better? The Science Says Yes! -- With Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Roberta Golinkoff, Kimberly Nesbitt, and Elias Blinkoff. Tuesday, June 6, 4:00–5:00pm EDT on Zoom
If we teach in the way that human brains learn, both students and their teachers will thrive! Making Schools Work, written collectively by a team of classroom teachers, administrators, parents, and learning scientists led by New York Times–bestselling authors Kathy Hirsh-Pasek and Roberta Golinkoff, aligns evidence from the learning sciences on how and what students need to learn with classroom practice, pre-K–12.
This webinar for educational policy leaders, school administrators, teachers, learning scientists, and parents will cut through the noise about what's wrong with schools and talk instead about what we can do right. The authors will present the theory and playful learning principles behind Making Schools Work. Attendees will learn how to create an education for all children that is culturally responsive, inclusive, effective, and fun—without investing in new curricula.

On Tuesday, April 25, 2023, the Division of Civic & Global Engagement, in collaboration with the Department of Public Health, will be hosting a Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Training for graduate students who are eager to implement these principles in their professional careers. The training will be facilitated from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET in the Castle Dining Room by Donna L. Richmond, the MA Chief of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for the Commissioner’s Office in Norristown, PA.

In this anti-bias training, participants will explore what implicit bias is, how it is measured, and how it harms everyone, including women, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) peoples, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other marginalized groups. How to overcome bias through a combination of strategies will also be explored. Such strategies include calling out stereotyped views, gathering more individualized information about people, reflecting on counter stereotypical examples, adopting the perspectives of others, and increasing interactions with different kinds of people.

Leaders’ desires for their companies/organizations to be more diverse, equitable, and inclusive has never seemed stronger. By following the blueprint outlined in this training, leaders can create programs that inspire people to more courageously examine and improve their behavior. While replacing superficial, one-shot training with longer-term efforts is strongly encouraged, this training is a step in the journey towards helping people understand their own unconscious biases and giving them concrete tools for overcoming them.

To register for this important event, complete the Google Form. You can also use the QR code in the flyer to register. For any questions or concerns, please contact Jaisy Omollo, Assistant Director of Civic & Global Engagement at [email protected].
