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’m so impressed with this hub in particular Tony, (you’ve been busy recently). I’ve long since felt that much of the education that young people get at school is simply a training (indoctrination) given in order to maintain the status quo, and that it’s sheer insolence, and an insult to democracy that the World establishment has decided to thrust young people into debt to achieve that end.
Facebook. Who discovered the Facebook? Where did he start the discovery? Mark Zuckerberg discovered Facebook and it started when he was in Harvard University. Today, many people are able to get their problems solved with the discovery made by this young man. He learnt this when he was in the university and that is one typical power of education. This is an example of how education can help in technological growth. The discovery of this youth has really console many Americans. Recently, he gave about 99% of his wealth to charity.
When you think about the agenda behind this and a little research, the picture becomes a clearer. The Secretary of Education has been Arne Duncan for six years. His focus is not on education but on equalizing intelligence. After all, it’s not fair that others are smarter. There is no justification for the current curriculum like the crazy math.
Rural-urban differences: mortality levels are usually higher in urban areas than in rural areas. However, scientific and technological development have improved urban mortality rates with innovations such as sanitation, the establishment of adequate medical facilities, public health campaign, and public or free medical clinics.
I feel like I have dyslexia because every question was a double question and the answers for each could easily be completely different. It made no sense?! I feel like a sane person in a crazy world- but, I’m sure I’m just a crazy person in a sane world.
Thank you, Johanna.There is indeed a need to change our education system in the Philippines. This makes homework time much less stressful, and the work is always presentable. We just don’t argue about writing the way we used to. This article gives hope and encouragement to both female students and female educators, not to mention parents of females. Thank you for the information and insight. It is high time for us to be treated as equals with men in every aspect of life.
