Yes, actually. My twin nephews went to a Waldorf school for a few years. There are pro and cons. I have a lot going on, so maybe you could ask specific questions. Firstly there is the issue of very under-qualified teachers doing their best to cope with a curriculum for which they have had inadequate preparation and for which the resources are also inadequate. All the news about long-term unemployed young people, who are burdened with more than $90,000 of college debt is discouraging some young people from attending college.
Bromine is too reactive to exist as an element in nature. It’s found in compounds instead. The element can be produced in the lab. Bringing education leaders together from across the aisle and across states, our gatherings provide opportunities to interact, learn and collaborate.
Special education has a jargon all its own. Even among educators, the terminologies are unique. Often, many of the terms are actually acronyms. This includes the subject of this hub, Specialize Academic Instruction (SAI). We welcome you and remain committed to serving refugees, immigrants and US citizens who have been educated in other countries.
But, since statistics relies on the normal curve, statistics also tells us … Read more
New skills and knowledge can spark a lifetime of change. Every day, EDC’s programs in education, health, and economic development deliver life-changing opportunities to those who need them most. I don’t expect my chemistry and science students to memorize the order of elements in the periodic table. They will have easy access to a version of the table throughout their education. In my school, there’s a copy on classroom and lab walls, in textbooks, in the students’ daily planners, on the school computers via the Internet, and often on the students’ portable electronic devices as well. The senior students are even given a periodic table on their government exam.
Too much praise makes children overly dependent on others’ opinions. Studies show parents make a more positive impact when they extol their children’s effort and not their performance. Currently the director of the Music Entrepreneurship & Career Center at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, Gerald was previously an accomplished faculty member of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

Please rate this article using the scale below. The scale is from 1 to 10, where 10 is the best and 1 is the worst. Many early scientific studies wouldn’t pass the ethical test nowadays. Still, it’s interesting to read about them. Life is the most exciting opportunity we have. But we have one shot. You graduate from college once, and that’s it. You’re going out of that nest. And you have to find that courage that’s deep, deep, deep in there. Every step of the way.
Secularist – thank you for a wonderful contribution here! I agree with your comment completely! Thanks Triplet Mom! I will have to look for the Schoolhouse Rock DVDs. They sound great. This I think, is a fine example of how grammar in the written word … Read more

A bulletin board works well for a jeopardy board. One way to set up the game is as follows. I won’t counter #4, but would like to mention for those students who have a serious hobby or interest, they have more time to pursue it. For me, it was writing fiction. For my older brother, it was computers and robots.
Again, taking the case of India, the education system is geared to making an engineer or a doctor or an MBA of every student. The pressure on students is so much that many commit suicide, unable to cope up. Scribenet – thanks for the warm and kind words. I really appreciate that you took the time to visit and comment – and give me such a wonderful compliment. Now I have to try to live up to it! LOL!

While homeless people do commit crimes, sometimes their only crime is being without a place to sleep. It often doesn’t take long for them to get criminal records without doing anything wrong. The charges can be loitering, trespassing or unauthorized camping for falling asleep in a place not designated as a residence. Oddly … Read more
Under the 1833 Factory Act no child could work in factories under the age of nine; and the hours children could work was limited, according to their age e.g. 9 to 13 year olds could not work for more than nine hours, and 13 to 18 year olds could not work for more than 12 hours a day. Let’s put it this way, I am stubborn and no one in this world will ever tell me who is good or bad for me. I date/marry whom I like and to hell with education. If you can’t make a relationship work based on other factors then maybe you need to take a deep look at what your values in like are.
Delayed marriage: delayed marriage has many advantages for the individual, the community, and the country. Women who delay their marriage will have shorter reproductive spans and therefore, will tend to have fewer children than women who marry earlier. Likewise, young people who delay marriage will tend to have smaller families, be able to pursue education for self-fulfillment and gainful employment, and be able to help improve the welfare of parents, brothers and sisters.

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.

I think blaming teachers is extremely unfair. They are part of a bureaucracy with no real control over what to teach and how to teach. Teachers don’t control curricula, standards or testing. They have to make do with whatever materials, worksheets and curricula they are given, even if they believe that they are ineffective. They have to prepare students for tests that often don’t effectively test student ability. The belief that teachers are responsible for educational failure has lead to ideas like merit pay and compensation based on student performance. I know I sound just like a teacher, but reading is the most important thing you can do to help your child through life. You’ll have to trust me on that one! Here is a BBC Literacy article that talks about how research shows that fewer children are reading in their spare time.
The Periodic Videos website was established by the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom. The website has videos about all 118 elements. What a fabulous resource.

The Place to Go Online if You Are a Hippie, Bohemian, or Free Spirit in Need of Employment! In the ‘dump and replace’ age – many jobs requiring technical training have gone. Very few computers are repaired any more – broken ones are simply replaced under warrantee. For older machines the faulty circuit boards are simply replaced. Often a repairer will simply replace each of the circuit boards in turn until the computer of peripheral works.
The gender wage gap still exists though it can appear to be less of a problem than it really is. This is due to more women with college degrees ultimately earning more than their less educated male counterparts such that the gender wage gap appears to have significantly narrowed. However, if men were achieving the same level of education at the same numbers as women, men would be earning on average 4 to 5 percent more than women given they are paid more for the same jobs and with the right education are more likely to be hired for advanced positions than women. Additionally, men’s unemployment rate would be one half to one percent lower than women’s rate.

I personally feel that to require children to go to school against their wishes or the wishes of their parents, under penalty of going to jail or losing their children, is involuntary servitude, which is prohibited by the constitution. As it stands, even parents who chose to home school are required to structure their teaching around the schools education system, which is often why parents choose to home school in the first place.
