The IDEA law applies to all children, regardless of severity of disability. Even children in a vegetative state qualify for FAPE. When you start again, restrict your sessions to just 15 minutes of any subject. Baby steps. Then nothing is too overwhelming. Thus, places such as YMCAs, Boy and Girl Scouts, and other such groups will rise in popularity to fill the void. I’m somewhere in the middle – I’d go to Disney World even if there weren’t educational experiences but I’ll also take advantage of them because they’re there.
Some homeschooling parents have a hard time with subjects such as algebra or physics that they learned so many years before and haven’t used often since. Or maybe the parents never learned these subjects at all. In any case, a homeschooled student might struggle to translate instructions from a book into mastery of a subject in concepts that are difficult.
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 … Read more

But, we do not live in a nation that truly values education. The solution from politicians has been a test them til they drop mentality. As a teacher who worked in banking and finance, I can tell you there is an incredible difference between the quality of training between these two professions. I received hands-on training with specifics in banking…in teaching I learned about Dewey, theory, etc. My job every day is the delivery of a 45 minute lesson. NOT ONE TIME have I ever been presented with an example of an excellent, high quality lesson in teaching history. I have attended workshops, conferences, joined lesson plan web sites, purchase countless books. There is nothing!!
I really like the concept of the children directing their learning. I found that’s how … Read more
Children become fluent in reading with practice, practice, practice. I’ve used these free, engaging reading games to hold their attention and keep them motivated. They are among the best methods for turning the hard work of learning to read into play. So, is a one-time $72.95 investment in your child’s future worth it? If you ask me, this kind of opportunity would be well worth it at ten times the cost. Our children are the future of this world and nothing is too good for them. The fact of the matter is that you just can’t put a price on a good education. Giving your kid the power of putting their future in their own hands turns $72.95 into a mere pittance: a drop in the bucket.
Because my parents were convinced college was out of their financial reach and I had no one countering that belief, I began working full time after graduation and going to junior college part time. In my first classes, I struggled with procedural issues. I didn’t know how to write a paper to the professor’s liking, as everyone around me did. I didn’t participate in discussions because the other students seemed to be smarter … Read more
This article contains all of the philosophical quotes featured in the computer game Civilization IV. When your civilization discovers a new technology, a relevant quote pops up and is read by Leonard Nimoy. The demand for yoga trainers is also going up, and not just in India. People from around the world are waking up to the benefits of yoga. Especially in the last few years, yoga has grown much more popular in the United States and in other parts such as China, Australia.
Wow this was fun reading! Didn’t know Amir khan was a college dropout…and look at him sitting there with Hilary Clinton. THanks for sharing. The man’s immobility has little or nothing to do with his education. There are many educated men who are lazy and do not aspire to be anything greater. There are also educated men without jobs who seem to always want to get by and mooch off family.
You can opt out of it, but no one has. The children just think it’s funny…last week they learned about erections, etc, which I’m sure I did not know about at age 9. However, children these days are not the same as 30 years ago … Read more
Filipinos are known to be competitive in the international community. However, our current education system hinders us from becoming even more competitive. is a simple website in image, but powerful when it comes to learning tools. I love how they have a particular tab for pre-K kids which makes finding the games and videos you want much easier. They teach everything from basic colors and shapes to some advanced math and reading. The games are great, but they also offer educational videos, arts and crafts projects, and books. I especially like the books because they have a button to press which reads the book to your toddler who isn’t ready to read to themselves.
My son and I haven’t done a cinema trip yet but we are going to go next week to see Toy Story 3. I think he’s at the age now where he will sit for long enough to be able to watch the movie and I can’t wait! Thank you for being so open and honest with your perspective on Homeschooling through your middle and high school years. It is so important to hear both sides of the issues.
As far as curriculum goes, you can … Read more
Specialized Academic Instruction (SAI) has expanded throughout California’s public schools over the last few years. However, this expansion hasn’t translated into overall acceptance from educators. The hybrid program promised to adhere to key goals of the Individual with Disability Education Act (IDEA), while alleviating the finances of the state’s struggling school districts. It was supposed to be the ultimate tool to prepare students with special needs to be mainstreamed with their non-disabled peers. The term education can be applied to primitive cultures only in the sense of enculturation , which is the process of cultural transmission. A primitive person, whose culture is the totality of his universe, has a relatively fixed sense of cultural continuity and timelessness. The model of life is relatively static and absolute, and it is transmitted from one generation to another with little deviation. As for prehistoric education, it can only be inferred from educational practices in surviving primitive cultures.
The tourism industry is one of the largest in terms of people who depend on it, either directly or indirectly. Brilliant exceptions to the rule. The average undereducated person does not fit into such illustrous categories. Their intelligence is extremely negligible to say the least.

UNHCR’s report finds that refugees are five times more likely to be out of school than the global average. Only 50 per cent of refugee children have access to primary education, compared with a global average of more than 90 per cent. Teachers can open up subjects, or niches within subjects, that expose your child to something a parent hasn’t even heard about. This may become the child’s passion, and could influence their vocational choice and their lifelong happiness. Teachers or guidance counselors can help children understand the college application process and what opportunities may be open to them. This might be an area that parents are not as familiar as professional educators, as they went into a different college system decades earlier – or they didn’t attend college at all. Some homeschooled students graduate thinking that college is out of their reach financially, which is not true!

The goal of r/Education is to provide a community in which educational stakeholders can participate in meaningful, reflective, and thought-provoking discourse about educational policy, research, technology, and politics. We have a selection of toys at home that my son loves to play with. He has his favorites that he loves (they include cars as he is currently car crazy) but we have various other toys too. Our commitment to the ETS mission is reflected in our efforts to improve teaching and learning, expand opportunities for learners and communities, inform education and policy, and advance the field of educational measurement.
Outstanding hub! Charlotte Mason also advocated using real books instead of textbooks. Neutral policy: This aims neither at reducing nor increasing the growth of population. Also, I have a small a treat ready (usually a bit of chocolate) a bit of a bribe! The Alpha Smart has given my son a new lease of life, as writing is much, much easier for him when he types.
The subject involves other areas of study, including humanities, natural sciences, and the social sciences. The separation of the education department into two has made the situation worse, because accountability is now further diluted. A … Read more
I was so moved by Malala’s story and seeing her on television that I just had to put something down on paper. I wish that kind of education on every living person! Too bad it isn’t taught in schools and we have to be fortunate to find it ourselves or have a great role model! Education is fundamental to development and growth. From encouraging higher enrollment to promoting learning for all, the World Bank Group plays a significant role in education globally.
She grumbled as she practiced her Chinese characters at the kitchen table, and she griped as she yanked on her uniform in the mornings. Over and over, she asked us to explain why she had to go to this crazy school where nothing made sense. And no matter what we said, her eyes told us she wasn’t at all convinced.
I never much cared for what the world though anyway. I am a proud confident woman who has been with geniuses and trust me when it came to real test they don’t hold a candle to my man. I have dated extremely wealthy men and it’s the same thing. Learning about sexual (and asexual) reproduction is mere biology, … Read more
With the internet, universal access to education is possible, but its potential is hindered by increasingly restrictive copyright laws and incompatible technologies. The Open Education program at Creative Commons works to minimize these barriers, supporting the CC mission through education, advocacy and outreach on using the right licenses and open policies to maximize the benefits of open educational resources (OER) and the return on investment in publicly funded education resources. Our work cuts across all levels of education (primary – secondary – tertiary) and sectors of industry (non-profit – corporate – government). Her parents, both highly educated professionals, warned her against marrying the postal clerk with the 9th grade education. But she did not listen much to her chagrin and peril years later. She later regretted marrying the postal clerk. While she eventually obtained her Ph.D in counselling, he never returned to school to further his education, preferring to be mired in his ignorance. Let me not digress. They had a daughter and the daughter saw this. Yes, their home life was quite chaotic to say the least.
Great question, Sheila. Yes, the school does ensure that students learn their ABC’s, as well. During the first couple of years, when … Read more
