ACE and 34 other higher education associations wrote to the leaders of the House and Senate budget and appropriations committees, asking them to maintain Congress’s historic commitment” to financial aid and research in FY 2018. Sorry to hear that, Tamara. I don’t think it’s limited to the Croatian government though – the lack of teaching kids good ‘thinking skills’ is a worldwide problem. No point in stuffing their heads full of facts if they don’t know how to apply their knowledge. We need innovators in education; people with passion who don’t need rules and guidelines to inspire our youngsters.
I highly recommend Alpha Smarts ( since writing this Alpha Smart has stopped making these because people have lap tops these days which pretty much do the same job- so there are some bargains to be had! Construct-a-Word – Kids choose a word ending, then add beginning letters and letter blends to create a word bank.
Bruce, your use of the term socialist is a clear example of lack of basic education and basic critical thinking abilities or application. It shows me that you haven’t devoted even a single second to examining what you are talking about critically. If I were … Read more

Hay naku etong mga mina market parin hanggang ngayon itong k to 12 na ito masyadong obvious ang machinery at work. K to 12 will be dismal failure. This hub is probably going encourage and benefit people who think they have no options left to go ahead.
While he eats, I look through his books and see what homework he has. I often have to phone a friend to ask, because he forgets so many things. I never tell him off for this because he never does not do it on purpose. It’s because he’s dyslexic. Informative and well done! I learned several things I did not know before and your hub refreshed my memory on a few others. Great Job!
To develop relevant materials, newsletters, sourcebooks and other audio-visual aids for public enlightenment and teaching/learning in schools. Thank you for your gracious words and commentary, CJ.

Music is one of the most common ‘languages’ around the world. People of all nationalities listen to, play, learn, and teach music and a variety of instruments. To become a politician, you don’t need to have any education and our constitution does not state any mandatory standards. But mind you that doesn’t mean that you don’t need any education. As our society matures, more and more young and educated citizens are joining political parties on a full-time basis. If you are in college, then join your university level politics wing or you can join any major party as a youth wing member.
My nine year old son shows some talent with writing poetry and likes to read funny poetry. He has two younger siblings. We haven’t found the time to explore poetry writing like we should. I think he’d love it and be good at it. I voted for one site, Welcome to PS4K. Kid poems and stories can be submitted and voted on. I added your plexo to my recent LOTD lens, Reading Starts at Home. I hope more people vote and check out your sites.

With 189 member countries, staff from more 170 countries, and offices in over 130 locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries. They are often still in the process of applying for it. The first denial can take up to six months and the first appeal takes around 500 days. During that time the physically disabled with nowhere to live are both unable to work and not getting any income. Also, to get Disability, applicants must be available to be contacted and able to make it to appointments, sometimes hundreds of miles away. Sometimes those aren’t even possible for homeless people. Being without an address might cause them to experience a delay too great in mail delivery making them disqualified to receive assistance for missing an appointment. Food assistance is often pretty much all they can get. That covers some of why the physically disabled homeless are out on the streets.

When I read about PBS losing funding, it irritates me because as a father of two I have seen how effective their programming is at being entertaining and educational. It doesn’t just stop at their TV programming, though; their website is unmatched when it comes to fun and education. Writing is a process. It is not a simple set of steps into which one can just plug information. Simply teaching the steps of the writing process is worthless. Memorizing the order of steps does no good. It is important to implement them and practice. The students need to see how these steps are useful and will help them. The writing process can be taught by modeling it for the students. That way they could see exactly how it works. While teaching the writing process, it would be an ideal time to teach the mechanics of writing. Lessons about grammar and writing mechanics cannot be taught as individual entities. They must be used in conjunction with the rest of the curriculum. Grammar and writing mechanics need to be integrated into the general curriculum and not taught as separate units.
Very Nice lens. Thank you. I know a few people who will … Read more
The decision to homeschool your child is a huge, life changing decision. A parent should consider all possible advantages and disadvantages before beginning schooling from their kitchen tabletop. Because of the strong feelings on both sides of the homeschooling debate, sometimes searching parents end up only consuming information from other homeschooling parents. These resources tend to be a bit skewed as they are written by parents that feel they need to defend their choices instead of giving accurate pros and cons to homeschooling. With a busy concert schedule around the world, awards and scholarships, and even recitals for the Queen Mother, and the Queen and Prince Consort of Denmark, I’m always amazed Melanie has any time to maintain such a fantastic blog and be active on several social media sites.

Fierce advocates for the high academic achievement of all students — particularly those of color or living in poverty. Learn the alphabet and phonetic letter sounds with the help of Mrs. Owl. Beautiful illustrations and sound effects help to focus children’s attention. This free version includes A-Z and word recognition quizzes.

On the other hand, I do thank you for starting what gave hints of promise to be an interesting discussion. I’m so sorry that it could not live up to that promise. Accomplished chamber musician and performer, Erica Sipes has been teaching and accompanying musicians for many years.
Video tutorials are especially useful for instrumental musicians, while document-style handouts and lesson plan components may be available from classroom music teaching blogs. If all else fails, perhaps you could work with your man tearing down and rebuilding the engine in your Ferrari.

De Mille suggests that there are three types of schooling: public school, professional education and leadership education. The Thomas Jefferson method claims to be a system that trains people for leadership roles. Wear something on his Left (or Right) wrist or a ring on a finger.

The goal of r/Education is to provide a community in which educational stakeholders can participate in meaningful, reflective, and thought-provoking discourse about educational policy, research, technology, and politics. Educated people have a better sense of what to do with the world thus they also tend not to live their lives only for themselves but also for other people in the world. Causes and foundations which involve resolving issues in depressed places and other problem areas in the world are run mostly by people who know how such things work. Some even do their best to educate people from such situations in order to help them stand up on their own and live better lives.
So, if a player rolls a 2, he can fill in the word Europe or Asia in the correct place on the map. Play passes to the next person. If they roll a 3, they can fill in Africa, Antarctica or Australia on their map. If they roll a number and they have already filled in all continents / oceans associated with that number, they miss a turn. Play continues until someone in the class has filled in all 7 continents and 5 oceans and they … Read more

This brings up another big problem with education in America. We don’t have any challenging high school exit or university entrance exams , which are common in other countries. These exams often determine whether a student will make it to university and can exclude them from certain majors if they don’t earn enough points. These exams create a strong external motivation to learn. The SATs may prevent a student from attending a particular university but not from attending university altogether. Plus, the SATs are relatively easy and aren’t based directly on the high school curricula covering numerous subject areas.
Education cannot be equated with schooling or attending colleges. It is a much more noble notion that is … Read more
