Investigating education

Why are you inter-
ested in education?
I have been dedicated
to teaching and the field
of education my entire
career. After college,
I worked at the Coali-
tion for the Homeless in
New York where I met
and worked with many
wonderful children and
families who were living
in extreme poverty and
had little access to stable,
much less, exceptional
schools. From that point,
I've worked in schooling,
teaching and learning in
one form or another, with
a key focus on access,
excellence and equity.

What do you teach at
the University of Mich-
igan?
I teach both under-
graduate and master's
students at Michigan.
Right now, I'm teach-
ing ED118: Schooling in
a Multicultural Society.
Although it's a large class,
we treat it like a seminar,
with lots of student inves-
tigation and discussion.
We use many different
kinds of texts to address
three main questions:
What are the purposes
of schooling in the U.S.?
How do schools work?
And what is involved in
improving schools?

What do you enjoy
doing in your spare
time?
I love to cook, do yoga,
play with my kids, listen
to them play guitar ... and
read!
What is your favorite
dish to cook?
Ilived in Thailand with
my husband - I taught at
a Teachers College there
- so my favorite food to
cook is Thai food. I loved
eating Thai food for an
entire year and half. I
especially enjoyed start-
ing my day with a bowl of
hot steaming noodle soup
in an outdoor cafeteria
with my students.

What is the best part
about being a professor
at the University of z
Michigan?x
I am so fascinated by
the way that my students
make sense of our work
together, and I've been
inspired by their creativ-
ity. At the close of every
semester, I always feel
so sad that my time with
my students is over, but
every new semester, I'm r
greeted by more incredi-
ble students. It's an honor
and a privilege to work
with such thoughtful
learners. COURTESY OF SIMONA GOLDIN
Simona Goldin, a lecturer in the School of Educa-
- CECE ZHOU tion, once taught in Thailand.

ABUEL MAGIU AL-F-ERGANYT/AP
al-Saadi Gadhafi, son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, watches a military exercise by the elite military unit
commanded by his brother, Khamis, in Zlitan, which is 90 miles southeast oflTripoli, Sunday, Sept. 25, 2011.
Libyan official: Gadhafi
son's capture unconfirmed

Visit an Mcard office soon:

Pre-emptive
reports of son's
seizure prompts
celebration
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - A
Libyan spokesman said yester-
day that revolutionary forces
have captured some fighters
close to one of Moammar Gad-
hafi's sons in the fugitive lead-
er's hometown but that he has
no information that the son
himself has been seized.
Jalal el-Gallal, a spokes-
man for the National Transi-
tional Council in the eastern
city of Benghazi, said his office
has called commanders in the
besieged city of Sirte and "so
far as we are concerned there is
no confirmation that Mutassim
Gadhafi has been captured."
He was commenting on
reports that the son had been
seized, which prompted heavy
celebratory gunfire in Tripoli
and the eastern city of Beng-
hazi.
Anti-Gadhafi fighters have
been closing in on armed sup-
porters of the fugitive leader in

Sirte, the most important of two
major cities yet to be cleared of
loyalists more than two months
after the fall of Tripoli. Libyan
officials have said they believe
Mutassim Gadhafi and other
high-level former regime fig-
ures are hiding in Sirte and that
is the reason for the fierce resis-
tance.
Mutassim was Libya's nation-
al security adviser and had
a strong role in the military
and security forces under his
father's regime.
Libya's de facto leader,
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said ear-
lier yesterday he expected to
declare total victory in less than
a week, which would pave the
way for a new interim govern-
ment to be named to guide the
oil-rich North African nation to
elections within eight months.
"I hope that liberation will
be declared in less than a week,
after we free Sirte, and within
less than a month we will form
a transitional government and
the youth and women will have
a role in that," Abdul-Jalil said
at a joint news conference with
visiting Tunisian Prime Minis-
ter Caid Essebsi in Benghazi.
Gadhafi is still on the run

and his supporters also hold the
desert enclave of Bani Walid.
But the transitional leadership
says Sirte's capture will give
them full control of the coun-
try's ports and harbors, allow-
ing them to move forward with
efforts to restore normalcy and
establish a democracy.
The International Commit-
tee of the Red Cross warned
that thousands of civilians were
still trapped inside Sirte with-
out sufficient food, clean water
and other basic necessities. Red
Cross staff evacuated 25 war-
wounded and other patients,
including a newborn baby in its
incubator, from the main Ibn
Sina hospital in the coastal city
on Monday and Tuesday. Few
doctors or nurses remained, the
Red Cross said in a statement.
"The situation inside the
hospital is very chaotic and dis-
tressing," the ICRC's Patrick
Schwaerzler said. "When we
arrived there, we found patients
with severe burns and shrapnel
wounds. Some had sustained
recent amputations. A few were
half-conscious. They were lying
among crowds of other people
who were also asking us for
help."
