Pertti J. Anttonen Tradition through Modernity

In their study of social practices deemed traditional, scholars tend to use the concept and idea of tradition as an element of meaning in the practices under investigation. But just whose meaning is it? Is it a meaning generated by those who study tradition or those whose traditions are being studied? In both cases, particular criteria for traditionality are employed, whether these are explicated or not. Individuals and groups will no doubt continue to uphold their traditional practices or refer to their practices as traditional. While they are in no way obliged to explicate in analytical terms their criteria for traditionality, the same cannot be said for those who make the study of traditions their profession. In scholarly analysis, traditions need to be explained instead of used as explanations for apparent repetitions and replications or symbolic linking in social practice, values, history, and heritage politics. This book takes a closer look at 'tradition' and 'folklore' in order to conceptualize them within discourses on modernity and modernism. The first section discusses 'modern' and 'traditional' as modern concepts and the study of folklore as a modern trajectory. The underlying tenet here is that non-modernity cannot be represented without modern mediation, which therefore makes the representations of non-modernity epistemologically modern. The second section focuses on the nation-state of Finland and the nationalistic use of folk tra...

An insider’s guide to the coming philanthropic revolution Meet the next generation of big donors—the Gen X and Millennial philanthropists who will be the most significant donors ever and will shape our world in profound ways. Hear them describe their ambitious plans to revolutionize giving so it achieves greater impact. And learn how to help them succeed in a world that needs smart, effective donors now more than ever. As “next gen donors” step into their philanthropic roles, they have not only unprecedented financial resources, but also big ideas for how to wield their financial power. They want to disrupt the traditional world of charitable giving, and they want to do so now, not after they retire to a life of philanthropic leisure. Generation Impact pulls back the curtain on these rising leaders and their “Impact Revolution,” offering both extensive firsthand accounts and expert analysis of the hands-on, boundary-pushing, unconventional strategies next gen donors are beginning to pursue. This fascinating book also shows another side of the donors in Generation Impact: they want to respect the past even as they transform the future. They are determined to honor the philanthropic legacies and values they’ve inherited by making big giving more effective than ever before. If they succeed, they can make historic progress on causes from education to the environment, from human rights to health care. Based on years of research and close engagement with next gen donors, Generation Impact offers a unique profile of the new faces of philanthropy. Find out, directly from them: How they want to revolutionize giving to expand its positive impact on our lives and our communities. Which causes interest them, how they want to engage with those causes … and, perhaps more important, how they do not want to engage. Which new tools and strategies for change excite them most. What they are learning from previous generations, and what they want to bring to their work alongside those generations. How we can all ensure their historic potential is channeled in ways that make our world better. The Impact Revolution will be messy, but it could also result in solutions for some of our most persistent problems. Generation Impact offers targeted, practical advice to parents, families, and their advisors, as well as nonprofit professionals—those who work closest with these next gen donors—on how to engage, nurture, and encourage them as they reshape major giving and make their mark on history. Help them channel their enthusiasm—and their wealth—to make the most positive difference in a world with such great need.

Stefan Jelinek The Impact of Management Practices and Organizational Structure on Firm Performance

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Industrial Management, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (Information, Organisation und Management / und CDTM), language: English, abstract: "The most significant factor in America, leading to high production at low cost, is efficient management." This quotation is not from a longitudinal, empirical study, but it is stated by the British Productivity Council in the context of the Marshal Plan - the Anglo - American productivity mission in 1951. Hence, one question might be: Is there indeed a strong link between management practices and firm performance? A further question might be: How American management practices rank compared with European or Asian management practices? And what role plays organizational structure on firm performance? Are there interacted effects between management practices and organizational structure? Insights into the impact of management practices and organizational structure on firm performance are mainly based on theories.Consequently, there is a strong need to measure management practices and organizational structure across countries and cultures to verify theoretical hypotheses with empirical data. This paper sheds some empirical light on these topics as well as on the distribution of management practices and organizational structures across countries and industries.This book is based on a unique data set with more than 3500 management interviews to document and analyze the influen...

Janet Graham EXPLORING CARIBBEAN BOYS. ACHIEVEMENT IN SECONDARY EDUCATION. AND BOYS STORIES OF SCHOOLING: THEIR OWN WORST ENEMIES.

This book explores underachievement of boys and girls in secondary education. The author focuses her empirical study on the alarming underachievement of African Caribbean boys in British schools in comparison to other groups. She also adopts a historical perspective to compare West Indian children who arrived in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s (many labeled as ESN) (Coard 1971) to problems faced by black boys in today’s classrooms. Janet Graham also explores the impact of globalization, population movement, government policies, and diversity on black boys’ education provision in inner-city schools in Britain. She investigates masculinity, subcultures, peer-group pressures, and exclusion from school and their impact on black boys’ education. The institutional focus study sets the context for the empirical study and provides a perspective from voices of black boys in one inner-London school to find out what they think about school, learning, subcultures, peer-group pressures, and teachers. As a contrast, teachers’ views of the boys are also provided. This book will be of interest to educationalists, teachers, parents, school management, and government bodies interested in race, diversity, achievement, who want to bring about change to improve life chances.

This important book offers a new model of leadership that shifts away from the traditional heroic notion of leadership to the collective account of leadership that focuses on leadership for a specific purpose—like social justice.

Reinvent public schools with proven, innovative practices Our homes, communities, and the world itself need the natural assets our children bring with them as learners, and which they often lose over time on the assembly line that pervades most of the public education system today. We see no actions as more important in school than developing, supporting, and reinforcing children's sense of agency, the value of their voices, and their potential to influence their own communities. In Timeless Learning, an award-winning team of leaders, Chief Technology Officer Ira Socol, Superintendent Pam Moran, and Lab Schools Principal Chad Ratliff demonstrate how you can implement innovative practices that have shown remarkable success. The authors use progressive design principles to inform pathways to disrupt traditions of education today and show you how to make innovations real that will have a timeless and meaningful impact on students, keeping alive the natural curiosity and passion for learning with which children enter school. Discover the power of project-based and student-designed learning Find out what “maker learning” entails Launch connected and interactive digital learning Benefit from the authors’ “opening up learning” space and time Using examples from their own successful district as well as others around the country, the authors create a deep map of the processes necessary to move from schools in which content-driven, adult-determined teaching has been the traditional norm to new learning spaces and communities in which context-driven, child-determined learning is the progressive norm.

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Sociology - Culture, Technology, Peoples / Nations, grade: 56, University of Birmingham (School of Government and Society (formerly School of Public Policy)), course: Rural Development (International), language: English, abstract: This dissertation has found that providing services such as infrastructure and welfare services to groups of people who are on the move, has historically been very difficult. Providing services such as education, to a society which is either migratory or just beginning to stabilize, and does not value education, particularly for girls, is seemingly difficult. The Tanzanian Maasai people are the perfect example of such a society. Many problems adversely affect their girls' enrolment, regular attendance and performance in school: lack of schools, the distance they must walk to go to school, a dangerous environment to walk through, fees, lack of food, poor standards of education in the schools, lack of classrooms, books, desks, teachers and learning supplies, also the transhumant nature of the society and the customs and culture of the community. All these factors are found to greatly affect both boys and girls, but have the greatest impact on girls.However, the Emusoi Center has provided an approach for keeping these girls in school by involving pastoralist NGOs, churches, government leaders and members of parliament from the pastoralist area. Religious leaders identify possible students, gover...

Master's Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1,7, University of Hamburg, 109 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Education is in itself a fundamental human right. As an important determinant of economic growth and human development, education also constitutes an indispensable means of realizing other human rights, particularly rights associated with employment and social security. With the unleashed force of globalization sweeping all aspects of social and economic life, national governments throughout the world increasingly understand the strategic importance of education in enhancing and maintaining international competitiveness, and its crucial role in developing economic and social viability on the long run. On the other hand, the convergent impacts of globalization also bring new impetus for cross-boarder education, and affect the shape and mode of the operation of national education systems more influentially than ever. Over the last two decades trade in cross-border education has been increasing steadily in all forms: not only the numbers of students enrolled in educational institutions outside their home country has been rapidly increasing, but also more and more education providers operate abroad, providing their educational services to foreign students who remain at home. Accelerated development of the new information and communication technologies also facilitate cross-border education and ...

Habanabakize Schadrack The impact of limiting Seventh Day Adventist church education assistance to four children on education of other children of church employees

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Theology - Didactics, Religion Pedagogy, grade: 1, , course: Educational Psychology, language: English, abstract: The Adventist education has the vision of giving Christ centered education through developing physical, mental and spiritual aspects. All SDA church employees' children had privileges to afford such education because of education assistance granted to them.After doing long literature review on factors that may affect physical, mental and spiritual growth among young people, the researcher realized that missing the means to afford Christian education and education at all hinders significantly those aspects of life. Therefore, this made him conduct the research using both qualitative and quantitative methods in collecting data about the impact the decision of ECRF since 2012 of limiting the education assistance to four children has on education of other children among the family of church employee. He distributed questionnaires among 27 employees and interviewed 3 officers and 6 children that affected by that policy before they accomplish A level.The statistical result proves the considerable impact of limiting the education assistance to four children, on education of other children. The lack of interest to the church, gaining deviated education and drop out of schools are likely definition of the impact. Therefore, it seems that the parents and the SDA church should put in consideration the education of those c...

Heather Young America in Context. Establishing Participatory Behavior in Young Adults

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2013 in the subject Politics - Didactics, Political Education, grade: 100%, Northwest University, language: English, abstract: Hemmings (2000) has defined educational praxis as a "process of synthesizing theory and practice in school contexts in a manner that improves the lives of students and their communities" (p. 68). This paper aims to contribute in the robust discussion of educational reform and its impact upon youth participation and civic engagement. I will discuss briefly the current trends in the political economy and the influence that business practices have had upon education by discussing the impacts of No Child Left Behind, the intense focus on scientific measurement, and the transactional approach of learning. I will show that current practices in educational measurement do not address the issue of civic engagement; present the best-practice solutions offered by several of education and social transformation theory's experts; and will illustrate adjustments that can be made to improve the lives of and empower students to be active and contributory within their local communities.

Too often teachers and students doubt their own abilities to forge collective work and dynamic critical learningin the midst of education reform practices that limit their opportunities to do so.

Hall Sherilyn Holistic Education

Today's teachers, in New Zealand primary schools, struggle to meet the requirements of an over-full curriculum and pressure to raise student achievement. Despite a curriculum that advocates future focused learning, teachers are being compelled to return to traditional forms of teaching in an attempt to ensure their students are meeting required 'standards' in reading, writing and mathematics. This is as a result of persistent underachievement despite on-going professional development and the government's introduction of National Standards. This research attempts to define a viable alternative for raising achievement, holistic education, that has produced pockets of success, mainly outside mainstream education, over the last few centuries and that may hold promise for the future. A key element of this holistic education is that the 'heart' of teachers for their students, rather than specific pedagogy, is what makes the difference to their achievement. It is this sense of a change of 'heart' by teachers, rather than specific practices, which suggests holistic education could be a viable vision for classrooms of today and the rest of the 21st Century.

Christina Gruber Austrian Advance Rulings Measures and their Compatibility with EU and OECD Provisions against Harmful Tax Competition

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This paper is intended to give an overview over Austrian advance rulings in an international context. In order to be able to outline the Austrian rulings practice and provisions that constitute a legal basis for advance rulings -- since in Austria rulings are not based upon one single law or provision but on many -- the term „advance ruling“ will be defined as well and its meaning in international tax practice will be described. Moreover, this paper is intended to examine Austrian rulings measures in the light of the EU and OECD provisions against harmful tax competition, as well as under the state aid provisions of the EC Treaty. It is structured as follows: In the first part, the provisions of the EU (Code of Conduct of Business Taxation) and OECD (report on harmful tax competition) against harmful tax competition as well as the state aid provisions are described and the discussion, as to whether provisions against harmful tax competition are necessary at all, is outlined briefly. Then, international rulings practice is explained. Finally and essentially, Austrian rulings provisions are described in detail and assessed according to the criteria to identify harmful tax practices described in the provisions against harmful tax competition.

Nicolas Rohde Disliked Practices

In recent years, the concept of organizational practices has become increasingly popular in organization studies. The focus of research that follows a "practice approach" is on the actual activities in organizations as opposed to prescribed procedures or standardized routines.This book is about a hitherto neglected category of practice, namely, disliked practices in organizations. On the basis of an empirical study in three German companies, the author reveals how continuous practicing of disliked practices results in a discrepancy between practitioners and their practices. This stands in contrast to previous literature, which understands practices as being exclusively positive and in which the consent of the practitioner to their practices is generally assumed.Based on the findings from the inductive study, the author develops a Theory of Disliked Practices, which explicates findings about the nature and the evolvement of disliked practices, and the negative effects of disliked practices on practitioners and organizational functioning.This book addresses researchers, lecturers, students and all those interested in organization studies and related disciplines, such as industrial-organizational psychology and sociology. The results of the study have significant implications for practice theory and methodology. Moreover, the theoretical model presented in this book provides a valuable basis for further research. Beyond that, the book will be insightful for managers and ...

Siddarth David Traditional Methods and Community Participation in Forest Conservation

Researchers throughout the world have studied the beneficial role of forests in disaster mitigation. This study aims at learning traditional practices of an indigenous tribal community and thereby tries to understand the factors affecting community participation and explores the role of other players such as the government or NGOs in the process of participation. The study looks at the traditional forest conservation methods among the Mahadeo Kholis residing around the Bhimashankar Sanctuary, near Pune, Maharashtra India. It also tries to understand the divergence between the government's scientific knowledge and the people's traditional knowledge, the effect of modernization on traditional practices and beliefs, and the implications of the global political economy of conservation on the actions of governments and the fallout on local people. Governments and conservationists should follow the new developments in the process of forest management and integrate existing indigenous practices and scientific knowledge to create effective and sustainable policies that institutionalize the symbiotic relationship between man and nature to preserve our deteriorating natural eco-systems.

Create campuses inclusive and supportive of disabled students, staff, and faculty Disability in Higher Education: A Social Justice Approach examines how disability is conceptualized in higher education and ways in which students, faculty, and staff with disabilities are viewed and served on college campuses. Drawing on multiple theoretical frameworks, research, and experience creating inclusive campuses, this text offers a new framework for understanding disability using a social justice lens. Many institutions focus solely on legal access and accommodation, enabling a system of exclusion and oppression. However, using principles of universal design, social justice, and other inclusive practices, campus environments can be transformed into more inclusive and equitable settings for all constituents. The authors consider the experiences of students, faculty, and staff with disabilities and offer strategies for addressing ableism within a variety of settings, including classrooms, residence halls, admissions and orientation, student organizations, career development, and counseling. They also expand traditional student affairs understandings of disability issues by including chapters on technology, law, theory, and disability services. Using social justice principles, the discussion spans the entire college experience of individuals with disabilities, and avoids any single-issue focus such as physical accessibility or classroom accommodations. The book will help readers: Consider issues in addition to access and accommodation Use principles of universal design to benefit students and employees in academic, cocurricular, and employment settings Understand how disability interacts with multiple aspects of identity and experience. Despite their best intentions, college personnel frequently approach disability from the singular perspective of access to the exclusion of other important issues. This book provides strategies for addressing ableism in the assumptions, policies and practices, organizational structures, attitudes, and physical structures of higher education.

Most parents dream of giving their children the best possible education. However an education – primary, secondary and tertiary – costs money. Parents of a child born in 2006 can pay approximately $250K for a child's lifetime education according to the latest research from the Australian Scholarships Group. And costs are constantly on the rise. Investing in Your Child's Future is aimed at parents and future parents, grandparents and other family members, and covers children's education from pre-school to tertiary studies. It is designed to show readers how they can secure and contribute to their children's future and can benefit from a higher education at the institution of their choice, without sacrificing their lifestyle or financial security, and regardless of their income. Investing in Your Child's Future shows readers how they can finance all, or some, of their children's education by planning ahead, implementing simple strategies and saving money as early and as regularly as possible. When your children are young, it's easy to delay funding their education as it is not an immediate expense. However, education is a major expense, regardless of whether you choose a private or public education, and the sooner you start saving, the more money you will accumulate, and the sooner you can stop worrying about your child's future.

Jerry McBeath, Maria Elena Reyes, Mary Ehrlander Education Reform in the American States (PB)

Education Reform in the American States is a timely evaluation of the accountabilitymovement in American public education, culminating in the No Child Left Behind Act,federal legislation of 2002. The authors treat the current accountability movement,placing it in historical context and addressing the evolution in public educationpolicymaking from the overwhelming emphasis on state and local discretion to increasingfederal oversight and mandates related to federal funding. They provide case studies ofthe educational accountability movements in nine states and analyze the factors andforces which explain progress in achievement levels as measured on standardized testsand the states' prospects for meeting their NCLB targets. The book and the individualcase studies acknowledge the merits of NCLB while exposing several significant flawsand unintended harmful consequences of the act, particularly its incentives for states tolower their standards in order to meet annual yearly progress targets and its threat to withdraw federal funds from districts withthe highest percentage of disadvantaged students.The audience for this study includes local, state and federal education policyrnakers; administrators and instructors in schoolsof education and other teaching programs, educators; and the general public.

An insider’s guide to the coming philanthropic revolution Meet the next generation of big donors—the Gen X and Millennial philanthropists who will be the most significant donors ever and will shape our world in profound ways. Hear them describe their ambitious plans to revolutionize giving so it achieves greater impact. And learn how to help them succeed in a world that needs smart, effective donors now more than ever. As “next gen donors” step into their philanthropic roles, they have not only unprecedented financial resources, but also big ideas for how to wield their financial power. They want to disrupt the traditional world of charitable giving, and they want to do so now, not after they retire to a life of philanthropic leisure. Generation Impact pulls back the curtain on these rising leaders and their “Impact Revolution,” offering both extensive firsthand accounts and expert analysis of the hands-on, boundary-pushing, unconventional strategies next gen donors are beginning to pursue. This fascinating book also shows another side of the donors in Generation Impact: they want to respect the past even as they transform the future. They are determined to honor the philanthropic legacies and values they’ve inherited by making big giving more effective than ever before. If they succeed, they can make historic progress on causes from education to the environment, from human rights to health care. Based on years of research and close engagement with next gen donors, Generation Impact offers a unique profile of the new faces of philanthropy. Find out, directly from them: How they want to revolutionize giving to expand its positive impact on our lives and our communities. Which causes interest them, how they want to engage with those causes … and, perhaps more important, how they do not want to engage. Which new tools and strategies for change excite them most. What they are learning from previous generations, and what they want to bring to their work alongside those generations. How we can all ensure their historic potential is channeled in ways that make our world better. The Impact Revolution will be messy, but it could also result in solutions for some of our most persistent problems. Generation Impact offers targeted, practical advice to parents, families, and their advisors, as well as nonprofit professionals—those who work closest with these next gen donors—on how to engage, nurture, and encourage them as they reshape major giving and make their mark on history. Help them channel their enthusiasm—and their wealth—to make the most positive difference in a world with such great need.
