Hall of Presidents ~ See all of the nation’s presidents in this Audio-animitronic presentation of America’s history. We need to have a much more flexible school curriculum that is based on achieving success in practical tasks by using each student’s strengths and talents and there are so many ways to make our schools a much more suitable place for human children instead of the meat-grinders that they are today.
Crime reduction: This is another importance of education to nations. How can education reduce crime? A reader of this article may be confused when the introductory part of this page included ‘crime reduction’ as one of the educational importance to nations. People separate themselves from crime because they were taught the consequences of any committed crime. These punishments of any offense make many to detach from anything that will lead them to crime. Again, with education, people learn to be disciplined and say no to any kind of crime. Education provides employment for the masses. I do not think that any who is employed and paid well in return will have time to start thinking of one crime he will commit or the other to make money. Based on observations, countries that are more educated have less crime rates when compared with undereducated ones.
Today, many of us still read Greek myths. Some famous ones include the tales of Peruses, Theseus, and, of course, Heracles. The Greeks often used these myths to explain things that science couldn’t prove, but today, we mostly read the Greek myths for entertainment. Many Greek myths have been altered a bit in modern novels and movies. Some well-known adaptations are Disney’s Hercules and the bestselling novel Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Many applications require an explanation for all gaps in employment. So the homeless person can either lie or tell the truth. If he or she tells the truth, the cat is out of the bag and the prospective employer will know the applicant is homeless with all of the baggage and potential for discrimination that entails. If the job applicant lies, he will eventually get caught in the lie and have to face the consequences.
But I would hate teaching them. Smart classrooms these days can allow immediate access to online resources to illustrate or expand on what the professor is talking about; now that we’re past the experimental phase (dropped connections, faulty audio, you name it), greater spontaneity can be achieved in the classroom-so any question a student has off the cuff can be addressed.
My second son has a congenital moderately severe hearing loss in addition to other health impairments that affect his learning. He received early intervention services and is now receiving services through an IEP under the Committee for Preschool Special Education (CPSE). He attends a mainstream Pre-K classroom and will transition to a school-aged special education IEP next year. He uses hearing aids (purchased privately by us) and a personal FM system (purchased by the school district according to his assistive technology needs on his IEP) to hear in class. He will attend a mainstream kindergarten class with supports from a Teacher of the Deaf. The intervention has been extremely successful – his language skills are age appropriate. Because of the intervention he receives to bridge the gap, he continues to learn at an age-appropriate level.
