Literacy is probably the single-most important part of education. Without literacy, all other learning is impossible. Literacy involves using reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing to gain more knowledge. Without the ability to do any of these skills, there is absolutely no way to acquire more knowledge. Literacy is essential for learning. It is crucial that language arts teachers are not the only ones in the school stressing the importance of literacy. While the language arts teachers may be the only ones truly teaching literacy, it is the job of all educators to facilitate literacy learning. Literacy must come before any other learning can occur, and we cannot grow as a society without literacy. You’re right Ana! If that would be the mindset of every Filipino, especially the education administrators and teachers, the implementation would be far better that what we expect. God bless you. You say that the poor view more children as ways of expenditure! That makes no sense.

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

Students will come from an array of backgrounds and have different dialects. It is important for the teacher to model Standard American English. The students will follow the teacher, so it is necessary to set a good example by using SAE. When modeling and using SAE, it is necessary to not demean the dialect of anyone else. It is important that the students know their dialect is not wrong. Students should never feel alienated for speaking in their natural … Read more
We have been home schooling, or home-educating as it known in the UK, for eight years. It’s our chosen way of life. However, in the beginning we were filled with anxiety about how it was going to work for our children and us, as parents. Our son, Alexander was six when we decided to take him out of school, and the one piece of advice that was like gold to us was, ‘Don’t do school.’ In other words, don’t try to turn home into school. It can be concluded from above mentioned facts that education is not responsible for unemploymentIt is the education system and ways in which education is provided which are responsible for unemployment in Pakistan. The education system of Pakistan is not up to date and needs modifications including uniform education system throughout the country, revision of syllabus, student counselling facilities, setup of new vocational and technical institutions and training workshops for teachers. These modification certainly can reduce the rate of unemployment in Pakistan.

High School education is perfect in so many areas that in order to truly comprehend its greatness, one must understand each of the aspects that make it so fantastic. From the grading system to teacher salary and student eagerness to learn, there are a wide range of qualities that make the high school education system the well-oiled-machine that it is. Great analysis, Distant Mind. Our current educational system tends toward teaching to pass standardized tests and not true learning. We must encourage our young people to analyze facts and be creative. Simple memorization will not cut it in our time nor should it.
Additionally, I’d like to point out that I’m not saying we should completely throughout Biology, Physics or Math, but we should try to dig ourselves out of the unnecessary details and try to see and understand the big picture. Let’s put the emphasis on the really fascinating stuff like the beauty, complexity and diversity of life instead of knowing each and every chemical reaction that is part of the Krebs cycle for Biology. Let’s put the emphasis of Physics on the miseries of the universe and the mindbogglingly paradoxes of the quantum world instead of solving interchangeable … Read more
Start here to get Minecraft: Education Edition for your classroom, school, or district. Practice, practice, practice….and have fun, what a great approach for developing reading skills. We work on paper and stick the work in his book, for every piece of work we do. It cuts out a lot of stress and anxiety. It is. I only wish I had had the same opportunity when I was a kid. Having said that, the fact that we had to go to school was balanced by the freedom we had outside of school hours.
I did read your comments Deidre and I just happen to disagree not from people who write about this, but from living the experience. I only know that my son is ahead of the class with reading in a mainstreamed environment with having ASL as his first language. And you are biased if you are using dogma ideas when you are talking about someone’s culture or ideas that you disagree with. It’s not a religion but a culture which is quite obvious to most people. My prior post is also not shown here. All the best to you and yours.

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. Remind him of the letter shapes by speaking the shape of each letter out loud as he is writing: up, down, round etc. However, there are cheap and easy ways to keep them with a supply of new toys. Then, playing with toys can be a great way to keep them entertained. This is what I do to make sure the toys get played with a lot.
A sound education levels the playing field in a country where the field has multiple access points, but only one entrance for blacks. Never have so many black youths been lost to the penal system, to the streets, to death by the hands of law enforcers and by their own hands. And as observed by Michigan State University sociologist, Dr. Carl S. Taylor , there are those who prey on the lack of opportunity and education; thereby, organized crime units emerge from underground and teach young minds the ways to a criminal lifestyle.

Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System ( IPED s) includes information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. Datasets include year-over-year enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid. My 4th grade teacher, Miss Cartarphen, whom I’ve mentioned more than once, was such an excellent and creative English grammar teacher (and some subjects do require learning what is already established knowledge in order to be able to think and create more independently!). She had an uncanny ability to INSTILL that dry subject into her students and cause us to appreciate it in such a way that we simply learned to use it almost painlessly! BUT – she lacked the educational credentials and was ultimately fired from the faculty even though she had taught some of the people on the school board who fired her! Guess they missed her lessons in wisdom.
With physics, it would be difficult to do just online courses because the students need to conduct experiments to observe for themselves the effects and see theories in action. Most wouldn’t have the necessary equipment at home to do those experiments.
