James Coburn defended his Ph D entitled "The professional development of English language teachers: Investigating the impact and design of a national in-service EFL teacher education course" on November 22nd at campus Hamar.Contribution to professional development for English teachers The purpose of James` study is to investigate the effectiveness of one of the national in-service courses for teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and it aims to contribute to the knowledge base of EFL teacher education and the delivery of in-service language teacher training.“There is a tremendous shortage of teachers with EFL education in primary schools in Norway today.This is even more worrisome since a new law was recently passed in Norway mandating to increase the threshold of qualification of EFL teachers in primary schools.Pennsylvania’s Child Protective Services Law (CPSL) was amended in 2014, including substantial changes to the list of people who are mandated reporters.Effective December 31, 2014, people in these positions are mandated to report child abuse: When you suspect child abuse, the law requires you to immediately make an oral report of suspected child abuse via the Statewide toll-free telephone number Child Line at 1-800-932-0313.Mill levies are raised for specific needs in communities and should be determined by local officials and voters.SB-61 is essentially an unfunded state mandate.(2) Voter intent is overruled since SB-61 mandates current mill levy funds be given to charter schools whether that school existed or not when voters approved additional mill levy money.
His findings indicate that teachers experienced increased competence as EFL teachers, used significantly more English in class, became less dependent on textbooks, and encouraged more pupil activity.
WHAT IT DOES: Beginning July 1, 2017, the bill requires a school district to distribute revenue it receives from ongoing local property tax mill levies equally, on a per-student basis, to the school district charter schools.

Even if a district does not authorize a charter school now, it would be forced to give any future charter school a fixed amount of mill levy funds approved by local voters.(3) Charter schools do not play by the same rules as neighborhood schools.
They waive dozens of state laws and sometimes hundreds of district policies.
