Over the past twenty-five years, the educational advancement made by women has been significant. The gaps for educational attainment between the genders have all but disappeared for the young women being educated today. While girls still lag somewhat behind boys on mathematical and science achievement, girls in high school average higher grades and reach higher achievement levels in reading and writing compared to same age boys. The discrepancies in achievement by subject persist into adulthood. It has been shown that women between the ages of 16 and 65 achieved higher scores on comprehension and interpretation of prose that similar age men. There were also less women (40 percent) scoring at a low level in these areas compared to men (44 percent). Consistent with finding from earlier ages, women do not score as well as men in number related subjects such as mathematics (Sax, 2008). STD stands for sexually transmitted diseases. They are diseases that are transmitted through unprotected sex with an already infected partner. They include syphilis, gonorrhea, urinary tract infections (UTIs), AIDS, etc. Great ideas, thanks so much for sharing. My son’s favourite is the sticker books!
Interesting. It seems to me that many of our schools and universities are becoming mere trade schools (of which, of course, I was a student). Getting a skill, gaining the facts needed to obtain gainful employment is of course critical, but often it seems an education isn’t part of the agenda. You are right though, a person who is dedicated to ongoing learning, seeking truth and so forth will become (or is) educated. This is an important topic!
From experience, I think this info is very accurate ,good job it’s about time people face reality. Convert 2D drawings made on paper into 3D printed shapes. Students will explore the connection between art and technology as they complete designs that can be combined with others into unique and changeable sculptures.
Returning to this excellent teaching resource with a little angel dust, beautifully presented! Good lens. Don’t agree with every reason listed, but basically you’re on the money! As far as children in large families being more neglected, it also goes back to wealth- not family size. Poverty does have a causative relationship with abuse and neglect.
Do not over look other educational institutions in your area. Many local technical schools and community colleges offer free online classes to local home-school programs. Many receive grant funds to allow home-school students to use their facilities for learning purposes.
Not surprisingly, the Japanese students demonstrated stronger knowledge in both Calculus and Algebra. Asian students in America typically outperform other students because they are raised with a strong value for education and learning. Ken – thanks for stopping y and I hope your students do learn these things! When we stoip learning we die.
