High school can be challenging for any of us, but three NYC teens were especially hard pressed. MetroFocus spoke with Dashown Wilson Jr, an introverted NYC teenager who will attend CUNY Alfred State.
Early Life and Education
Harold Noah was an alumnus of Teachers College who distinguished himself as an international and comparative education scholar with numerous influential works relating to Soviet education, including his dissertation “Financing Soviet Schools”. Additionally, he taught there from 1964-1987 while holding the Gardner Cowles Chair for Economics of Education.
Noah and Eckstein created a process to assist researchers in their comparative education research, which included identifying an hypothesis for study, defining concepts and indicators, selecting regions as cases for examination, collecting data and manipulating it before finally gathering any conclusive evidence for comparison between cultures.
They emphasized the need for pragmatic methods of conducting educational research that would promote education internationally. This led to cross-national comparison studies being established.
Harold Noah specialized in international and comparative education as an academic. Together with Max Eckstein, their work challenged dominant ideas in the field and advanced cross-national comparison as a methodology. Their doctoral dissertation Financing Soviet Schools became a landmark work on economics of education both inside the Soviet Union and around the world.
