The standard of educational system can simply be seen as a systematic and generally accepted level of teaching and learning in the educational institution geared towards improving knowledge and developing skills. According to Plato, such a system … must be one that can be shown to produce the highest possible perfection and excellence of the soul (laws 788 of-10). Excellent hub. I have four children in grade school now. Fortunately, my oldest is able to attend SCF Collegiate School, she started last year for sixth grade. It’s based on a European learning style. This will be her second year in it and we couldn’t be happier.
Tussin, I’m really glad you brought up statistics because it is, in one sense, at the heart of this disagreement. It is true that a marriage or relationship is statistically more likely to succeed if the couple have certain values or traits in common.
I have a great musician friend who is also a teacher who at the beginning of an academic year lets the youngsters loose in a room with a bunch of robust instruments and tells them to get on with it! No guidance, no rules, no expectations, just the awakening of … Read more

Your son is very lucky to have such supportive parents that care about him. My mom read to me all the time and I was able to read on my own by time I started kindergarten. A college friend is dyslexic and he’s now a CPA. All things are possible with a terrific support system. Great lens!
The advantages can be manifold and not always obvious to the casual observer, but reports by organizations such as the US College Board show the contribution that a college education can make to the well being of both individuals and society … Read more

Of course, she’s now out of hospital, still living in England, and goes to school. She has now turned sixteen, and has made a name for herself round the world, attending conferences, gaining international peace prizes, and gathering support from millions of people, in her quest for universal education for girls.
This article is brimming over with sensible advice and practical tips; the shark project was great! My grandson (6yrs) is beginning to show the signs of dyslexia you outline here, so we will certainly seek early intervention as you suggest. The pressure on schools to demonstrate good results by the constant testing/retesting children is resulting in more anxiety for the children who need more time and help.
I’m strongly believe with the K-12 Curriculum,because through of this it could give realistic and dynamic learning to the students. Therefore I conclude that through of this curriculum it shape them skillfully students and they can land a job easily.

Thanks for the visit and the comment.
The reason I chose to study clinical psychology was a direct result of suffering from panic attacks. I was dealt a bad hand of psychologists. As a consequence, my condition only worsened. And when I hit rock bottom, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I set out to learn more about psychology—in particular, I wanted to learn about anxiety disorders and find the best treatment options.

Inclusive education is about the integration approach of the disabled learners in schools. It is under this inclusion model that learners with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled learners. While inclusive education has its benefits, there are enormous challenges hindering its effective implementation especially in developing countries. This article briefly examines the following: Inadequate Educational Facilities, Poor Teacher Training, Poor policy implementation. They went together for a while and got married. Okay, let the games begin. Of course, this fellow was smooth and nice to her to get her to marry him. Then she realized the wide chasm regarding the educational, intellectual, and socioeconomic differences between them. She was earning twice as much as this postal clerk. She had interests widely divergent from that of the postal clerk. Their circle of friends were vastly different.
Our educational system is based on assigning ranks to everything. We are though to believe that some jobs and lines of work are better than others and that we all have to live our life as if it’s a race. Our education system ranks both us and itself at every chance it gets in order to let us know that … Read more
In the United States and in first world nations, with the increase of education. there has been an increase in the number of small families. There is a correlation between high intelligence, education, and small families. People who are highly intelligent and educated tend to believe in family planning. They know that before they have children, emotional, psychological, and socioeconomic factors must be considered. They believe in having children that they can afford. They realize also that children in order to thrive and develop, must have more than the rudiments in life. They must be exposed to the higher human needs and the better things in life such as cultural, intellectual, and cultural activities. They believe that having children should not be a happenstance but well-thought out and planned for the benefit of the entire family unit particularly the children. Woo! I’m lensrolling this to my own free clip art lens. I don’t focus enough on educational clip art, because I keep having to satisfy folks who are making Squidoo lenses, which have a commercial component. But students and teachers have a wider range of opportunities, since they can use education-only clip art.

We’re all about transforming kids into creators and explorers. We provide fun and accessible ways to explore real and virtual worlds, experiment with technology and use games to build math and science skills. The games, simulations and tools we develop in the Education Arcade are designed with the educator in mind. They use technology to create powerful learning environments in schools, in the home and in the community. Yes, poor people see children as expenditure, extra mouths. Many poor parents make their children discontinue school in order to work to supplement family income. Average poor parents do not stress education to their children because they do not see education as viable in their socioeconomic situation. They see a job, any job as more viable than an education. They see the job as adding money while educatioin serves no practical purpose in their eyes. This is why many poor parents discourage their children from taking education seriously. To them, education distracts from a child working and helping out, adding more to the very meager family income.

The LGBTQ+ Identity: A Toolkit for Educators Collection offers a series of digital media resources to help administrators, guidance counselors, and educators understand and effectively address the complex and difficult issues faced by LGBTQ students. Some children are primarily auditory learners, others are visual, and still others are kinesthetic. Why teach them all the same? Although it is difficult in a classroom setting to completely individualize your curriculum, it isn’t that difficult to include a wide variety of activities geared toward various learning styles. And although it does take some time and thought, when homeschooling parents or tutors change their curriculum to best meet the needs and learning styles of the child, more learning usually occurs and everyone tends to be happier.
What awesome ways for kids to learn the periodic chart of the atoms.

Sometimes correspondence education is called Correspondence Courses, Extension Courses, Extended Studies, Home Study, Continuing Education, External Studies, Self-Paced Studies, Independent Studies and Distance Learning (See Reference 1). Similarly, distance education is also called Cyber Education, Online Education, Virtual Education, Technology-Supported Education, Hybrid Education and Distributed Learning. Given the plethora of educational delivery modes currently available, students often get confused over the similarities and differences between correspondence education and distance education, further compounded by the fact that there are still other online delivery modes, such as synchronous live chats or hybrid online classes, among others. BlondeNAmbitious- I think there were some good general points, but off the mark on some. I am successful, and I think ‘The Secret’ is great…those that don’t know how to use it (like the poor), will think it is a ‘Pie-in-the-Sky’ miracle, but still fail. One has to understand what the ‘Secret’ actually is, and know how to apply it (i.e. it is not tangible until you actually get it). One needs to read on the law of attraction (also part of ‘The Secret’), to understand how one’s attitute can make the difference in one’s circumstance. Lousy at business, not necessarily…lousy at finances, absolutely! Slave for … Read more
Parents appreciate the importance of early childhood education but wonder: What are the characteristics of a high-quality preschool? As a former early childhood educator and mother of two, I’ve seen which practices benefit young children, which ones don’t, and which ones are actually harmful to them (e.g. long Circle Times, teacher-directed craft projects, lengthy calendar activities, paper-pencil tasks in workbooks). One of my sons attended a non-profit parent-cooperative that strictly adhered to the teachings of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). My other son attended a privately owned preschool that came highly recommended but followed no road map other than the owner’s whim. Based on these divergent experiences, I learned how important it is that a preschool has a strong identity, a sound philosophy, and a firm understanding of developmentally appropriate practices. To help parents, educators and families access affordable learning opportunities over the summer, we have updated our list of resources and programs.
