The Rose-Hulman community came together this week to mourn the loss of Robert Rea, a senior biomedical engineeringstudent.
Rea committed suicide Monday afternoon, leaving behind his mother, father, stepfather, two sisters, and a brother, as well as his Lambda Chi Alpha fraternal brothers and countless friends and relatives.
Students and faculty alike joined in honoring Rea’s memory and recalling his life.
Stimulus encourages school reforms
As part of the stimulus package, a small part ($4 billion) of the $110 billion allocated to education was set aside for a program known as the “Race to the Top” education grant. Despite the relatively low dollar amount of the grant, many states have been reforming laws to meet the grant’s standards; these standards include linking educators’ pay to student test scores, raising the number of charter schools allowed, adopting internationally accredited academic standards, and turning around low-performing schools. 8 states have already begun altering their laws to fi t these goals. Some have speculated that the grant has fueled a competition of sorts among states hoping to be “the winners.”
