Education That Works: The Child is Always Right
What would happen if we assumed the student is always right? That it's the teaching not the students that needs revision? For thirty years, an unheralded group of ''behavior analysts'' have been doing just that! Their research has demonstrated that all students (''special ed,'' low IQ, disadvantaged, non-English speaking, many problem behavior students, most ''slow learners'' and many ''Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder'' (ADHD) children) can learn at roughly the same rate, though they begin and end at different levels. The following article explores the current teaching system and how effective methods of teaching can be applied to improve the education system.

Grumps, Fits and Tantrums
Editors note: This is the first in a series of three about emotional outbursts. When a child who regularly throws tantrums makes a request, parents need to be careful. As every parent knows, the decision to deny the request should not be altered by a tantrum, but often a less clear reaction gets parents into hotter water.

Behavior-based safety (BBS) is an effective approach to preventing occupational injuries, and its healthful influence on work cultures is spreading worldwide. However, BBS only reaches its remarkable potential when everyone in an industrial complex understands BBS principles and practices BBS procedures. Unfortunately, many organizations that attempt to reap the benefits of BBS do not obtain or sustain comprehensive participation in BBS-related activities. This paper offers some reasons for resistance to BBS, and introduces ten practical strategies for getting more widespread acceptance of BBS and more large-scale involvement in the implementation of BBS procedures. Several strategies for encouraging participation in BBS actually reflect basic BBS principles, such as developing process-focused goals and metrics, and making behavior-based feedback a positive experience.
