Yes, We Are Stupid in America!

A Former Principal’s Reality Check on Why Our Public Schools Are Failing

Author: Dr. Vicky Wells

Publisher: iUniverse

ISBN: 1475971885

Students in countries such as Finland, South Korea, and Singapore continue to outperform their peers in America. But that hasn’t stopped the United States government from spending more money on education as achievement plummets. Dr. Vicky Wells, a former school principal, explores what’s going on at the federal, state, and local levels so that members of the public can hold bureaucrats accountable. In a series of reality checks, she explains how to • meet the growing crisis head on; • equip students with the necessary skills upon graduation; • make decisions based upon the input of real-life educators; and • ignore politics in order to best serve students. Teachers and parents trust leaders to make decisions based on what’s best for the students. Even so, all too often, decision making seems to be more about politics and quid pro quo—and this does not best serve students, educators, or the community. The educational system continues to decline, and students keep dropping out or graduating without the knowledge they need to succeed. It’s time to stop constantly changing curriculum and start focusing on the real problems confronting teachers and students.

Many building projects are the subject of claims – the assertion of a right, usually by the contractor, to an extension of the contract period or an additional payment under the terms of the building contract. Many of these claims are unsound or ill-founded, often because the basic principles are misunderstood. This highly regarded book examines the legal basis of claims for extensions of time and additional payment, and what can and cannot be claimed under the main forms of contract. It includes chapters dealing with direct loss and expense, liquidated damages, extension of time, concurrency problems, acceleration, time at large, common law and contractual claims, global claims, and heads of claim and their substantiation. With the publication of the fifth edition, Building Contract Claims has been thoroughly revised to ensure it is fully up to date with the latest contracts, court judgments and building practice. Changes include: Coverage of over 60 additional relevant court cases Coverage of the 2005 JCT contracts suite Coverage of changes to the NEC contract Coverage of additional contracts such as Constructing Excellence; Measured Term Contract and the ACA PPC2000 contract together with the 2005 relevant JCT sub-contracts Important changes to liquidated damages and to extensions of time, and the giving of notices Appendix 1 has been substantially revised Like its predecessors, the fifth edition of Building Contract Claims will be essential reading for architects, contract administrators, project managers and quantity surveyors, as well as contractors, contracts consultants and construction lawyers.
