Mining the Research

Matthew Swift

  • Out of Print: Reimaging the K–12 Textbook in a Digital Age. State Educational Technology Directors Association. This study concludes that all schools should try and move to an all-digital learning format by 2017. While acknowledging that there are barriers, policy and otherwise, to get there, the study offers different suggestions to make this transition.
  • Employees in Postsecondary Institutions, Fall 2011 and Student Financial Aid, Academic Year 2011–2012. National Center for Education Statistics. According to this report, students should not be wary of attending a private or public college based on price. After receiving financial assistance, the average cost of a public university drops from over $17,000 to around $11,000, and the cost of a private school drops from $34,000 to around $19,800.
  • Tuna Surprise: Mercury in School Lunches. Risk Management Advice for Schools and Parents. Mercury Policy Project (August 2012). This reports states that students should eat tuna only one to two times a month with their school lunches because of mercury contained in the fish that can sicken students and cause cognitive, attention, and other disorders that affect their learning abilities.
