School bullying has taken a high-tech twist. This CBS article, with accompanying video and interactive features, describes this alarming trend and provides information for parents and teachers on how to protect children and teens from cyber crime.

The University of Wisconsin created this site as a resource to help secondary science teachers develop modeling techniques for use in teaching several science concepts. The site presents each of these in some detail, with an eye toward giving science teachers the ability to develop model-based teaching approaches for other topics.

Here's proof that education is a challenge everywhere. In this article, a British researcher suggests that traditional top-down education innovation and reform efforts might be supplanted by facilitating peer-to-peer sharing of innovations - a sort of global teachers' lounge. It's an interesting perspective.

National Runaway Safeline's tagline is "Keeping America's runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets." Find important information for students, parents, counselors, and anyone else who works with young people who have run away (or may be thinking about doing so) and their families. In addition to location and confidential contact services, the site offers a wealth of resources for both families and young people. This is a quiet problem whose dimensions are far larger than many realize. The site includes resources for homelessness, as well.

Administrators and those interested in training qualified teachers and deploying them where they're most needed will find this paper from Arizona State University intriguing. The authors advocate for a system similar to that which has been used to attract physicians and health care professionals to specific training programs and practice locations. Both the concept and the logic are interesting and well presented.

The federal Department of Education offers this site that lets users access a database of federal programs, grant opportunities, and services. Its utility for the average teacher is largely dependent on specific circumstances, but it does consolidate a great deal of information into a single resource. There is also a very complete listing of state resources, and these may be more directly useful.

Edward Tufte is internationally recognized for his groundbreaking work in the use of visual images to convey statistical and quantitative information. In this short article, he launches a salvo at the power of powerpoint to misrepresent, overcomplicate, or otherwise distort information and information flow. It's a bitter pill, but one that any teacher who uses this technology should take at least once.
