Intense negotiations were conducted over the rules for period of weeks after the legislation was passed. Two members of the Illinois Council of Professors of Educational Administration (ICPEA) were involved in these negotiations, along with Representative Roger Eddy, State Superintendent Christopher Koch, and members of the ISBE staff. One concession grated by ISBE was that the public comment period on the rules was to be extended to November 22, 2010. The ICPEA representatives felt that the negotiations had led to agreements on modifications in the internship experience as well as a number of other issues. They felt that most of the other recommendations previously recommended by the “Working to Prepare Illinois School Leaders” task force would remain in place. When the new rules were ultimately posted for public review and comment, many elements were different from what the ICPEA representatives felt had been negotiated, and a number of new and very prescriptive elements had been added. This led to a brief, but intense period of political action on the part of the state’s public and private universities involved in the preparation of principals. This activity was spearheaded by the ICPEA.

Icpea political action

As stated in the introduction of this paper, it was clear from the outset that the ISBE and IBHE had the desire to drastically reduce the number of individuals receiving principal level administrative certification in Illinois. Over the course of the redesign process, it became clear that most of the public and private universities would probably be able to meet the newly proposed curricular changes. Therefore, if the numbers were to be reduced, this would most likely have to be accomplished through the rules relating to the internship process. When the proposed new rules were posted in the late fall of 2010, there were several elements which were certain to soon reduce the number of individuals receiving administrative certification.

On October 20, 2010 the ICPEA president sent out a call to action to all of the ICPEA members, representing 32 public and private universities, to write letters from their institutions, and individually, to the rules committee of ISBE and to the members of the JCAR committee of the Illinois General Assembly. The president also subsequently sent out a draft letter, on behalf of ICPEA, for the membership to review and react to prior to the organization’s November 20, 2010 meeting in Chicago.

Specific rationale was given for each of the proposed changes listed above, and solutions were also proposed in each of the areas. When the ICPEA group met in Chicago on November 20, 2010, the president’s letter was approved, with one minor addition. It was approved, with no nays nor abstentions, by the representatives of all 15 universities present. The president subsequently emailed the letter to the rules committee of ISBE and to the JCAR committee prior to the November 22 nd deadline.

First isbe response to political action

The Illinois State Board of Education was slated to review the public testimony on the proposed principal preparation rules during its meeting on Thursday, December 16, 2010 in Springfield, Illinois. Revised newly proposed rules were posted on the ISBE website late in the week prior to the meeting. The following changes were recommended to the Illinois State Board of Education by the ISBE staff:

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
