Education Trends to Expect in 2011

I’m amazed that 2010 is over. 2011 is here and it feels so surreal. I suppose I’m not the only one who feels this way. To sit here and think about it, I could have sworn that last New Year’s Eve was such a short time ago! Time really does fly and so much changes throughout the years. This next year is sure to bring plenty of exciting things and probably some not-so-exciting things as well. Keep an eye out for the following education trends that made the news in 2010 and are sure to stir up more interest in 2011.

Clint McCance officially offered his resignation to the Midland School Board, which was unanimously accepted in a special meeting. His removal from office came after a hateful anti-gay post on his Facebook. Not only did McCance use terms like “fag” he also said that he’s happy that homosexuals “give each other AIDS and die,” reports The Advocate. He further expressed his anger over the mourning of gay teens who died from suicide, saying that he would prefer it if all homosexuals would kill themselves.

CNN reports that McCance submitted a one-paragraph letter of resignation, apologizing for the public outcry caused by his statements. “I hope this resignation will help things get back to normal for you,” he wrote. “At no time did I want anyone to hurt themselves. I do not support bullying. I do not wish harm on anyone. I always learn from my mistakes and I hope that all of you learned something from this experience.” McCance was first elected to the school board in 2007, and was re-elected to serve a second term.

Students Break the World Record for the Longest Kiss

guinness recordsYou know the feeling: your heart beats faster, your knees get weak, and it is absolutely fantastic. I’m talking about one of those really long, passionate kisses. However, when I say “really long,” I’m talking about maybe a few minutes. I don’t mean a kiss that lasts for 32 hours, 30 minutes and 45 seconds. But that is exactly what Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello did.

Daley and Canciello are both students at the College of New Jersey. The two started their kissing fest at 11:32 a.m. and maintained their kiss for as long as they could stand. When they finally broke their kiss, they had destroyed the previous Guinness World Record for the longest kiss by 23 minutes.  The two boys will also hold the record for the longest same-sex kiss. More than 330,000 people watched the kiss through a live web stream of the event.

Daley and Canciello are gay; however, they are not in a relationship. Their motivation for their kiss was to raise gay-awareness.

“I just hope we can encourage people not to be afraid,” said Canciello about his motivation to raise awareness by kissing. “Love is universal no matter who you are.” Read the rest of this entry »
