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
Unless you’re lucky enough to personally know a school teacher or education professional, finding a comprehensive Brainetics review online can be a daunting task. Instead of writing alone we work together. We talk, discuss, research and make beautiful books. This takes dedication and time on my part, but it works, so it’s worth it. It is not exceptional (in the UK) for the children of poor people to become successful and wealthy, as it is not exceptional for the children of the wealthy to become poor although many are sheltered by family money.
In Pakistan, there is no concept of counselling service for students so many students opt wrong subjects which does not ensure better career opportunitiesSome students are forced by parents or societies norms to study subjects in which they have no interest. So their lack of interest causes failure and even if they succeed in securing degree by cramming they do not do well in their jobs due to lack of interest, their performance drops and eventually they lose job. This is due to defective education system in Pakistan in which students are not given career advice during their student life.

There are many assumptions about homeless people. Perhaps the most common is that all of them are too lazy to work. Having been there myself and having worked with many others in the same situation, I have to say that for the vast majority of homeless people, the assumption that they are lazy is dead wrong. Higher education typically involves work towards a degree-level or foundation degree qualification. In most developed countries, a high proportion of the population (up to 50%) now enter higher education at some time in their lives. Higher education is therefore very important to national economies , both as a significant industry in its own right and as a source of trained and educated personnel for the rest of the economy.
Ptolemy ordered the construction of the library, which contained over 700,000 scrolls of work. There was also a rule that all ships passing through the Alexandrian harbor had to declare if they had any works of science or philosophy. If they did, the work was copied and placed in the library, and the captain would receive the original copy back. Because of this accumulation of knowledge, many great discoveries took place in the library. For … Read more

I told everyone in the school who was willing to listen that my son was dyslexic. I told his class teacher that my son and I would be doing our homework together and that I would be supporting him in every way I could. I said that he would be drawing his homework and that I would be writing down his words, unless he wanted to write, of course.
Super lens. I love Shel Silverstein. Then again, who doesn’t? Thanks for the great links. Though, I should add, in the case of relationships, intelligence and level of education are not synonymous. So great to come across things like this that are actually informative … Read more
The LGBTQ+ Identity: A Toolkit for Educators Collection offers a series of digital media resources to help administrators, guidance counselors, and educators understand and effectively address the complex and difficult issues faced by LGBTQ students. Now for the facts, which the CIA updates frequently: each country’s flag and map; an introduction which may include a brief history; geographic features, climate and resources; demographic information about the population and ethnic groups; government and political structure; and details on the economy, communication, transportation and military; along with any transnational issues. And they fit all of that on one web page per country – amazing!
Your son is very lucky to have such supportive parents that care about him. My mom read to me all the time and I was able to read on my own by time I started kindergarten. A college friend is dyslexic and he’s now a CPA. All things are possible with a terrific support system. Great lens!
The advantages can be manifold and not always obvious to the casual observer, but reports by organizations such as the US College Board show the contribution that a college education can make to the well being of both individuals and society … Read more
I personally feel that to require children to go to school against their wishes or the wishes of their parents, under penalty of going to jail or losing their children, is involuntary servitude, which is prohibited by the constitution. As it stands, even parents who chose to home school are required to structure their teaching around the schools education system, which is often why parents choose to home school in the first place.

I’d love to get out of this situation permanently but it’s just so hard for me to stick with the same job long-term. It is better than a lap top because it’s tough and can be dropped and knocked around at school without damage.
STD stands for sexually transmitted diseases. They are diseases that are transmitted through unprotected sex with an already infected partner.

This writer engaged in extensive research examining the lives of black males and the educational system in America for a dissertation proposal. The findings of the research are detailed in the following paragraphs. I’m sorry that you had such a bad experience with science and the periodic table, Martie. What a shame! I wish your school had helped you more. I think that science can be fascinating when it’s approached in the right way. Thanks for visiting my hub when the topic holds such bad memories for you!
well then, it’s already implemented by our government (depEd), if they really like to improve our education system as the author said to be more competitive, they should see and check all schools in the remote areas also, they should try to do it to see real condition, they should be aware as it is being seen in the media’s documentary shows. need to create a program wherein all children in remote areas who wants to have better education will reach it, also to avoid child labor.

Unless you’re lucky enough to personally know a school teacher or education professional, finding a comprehensive Brainetics review online can be a daunting task. Freya – thanks so much. I think you are right that it is to do with raising awareness and not dampening the natural curiosity of young people. And maybe us older folks need to be more secure and not threatened when younger people are critical and original.
Really great recommendations Shawna! When my son was a toddler, I would allow him to only watch educational television like Sesame Street and the like. I also did not allow him to have any candy until he was three years old. I did not want his teeth to be negatively affected by the high-content of sugar.
Finally there is the issue of the provision of the physical structures for providing education – there are still too many children having to go to school under trees instead of in classrooms. And too many of the classrooms that are there are in pitiable condition.

The constraint of distance is usually solved by the simple solution of dormitories, but the hurdle of financial assistance is another story. Of late, especially after the commencement of this century, good quality higher education can be gained by people at an enormous value of consideration. In an attempt to provide people with costly but higher and specialized education, society and governments have made some effective provisions such as student loans, educational loans and scholarships. Financial aid is one such provision that is provided by the Universities as well as governments to aspiring students. An important step that comes into the picture is a financial aid appeal letter. Music : This is another study from Northwestern University. This article was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have learned that psychology is a foundation to ones lifetime, because it starts right from birth and surrounds a person until his death, as a foundation lifts a stroyed building from its start to its crumbling moment.

Under the 1833 Factory Act no child could work in factories under the age of nine; and the hours children could work was limited, according to their age e.g. 9 to 13 year olds could not work for more than nine hours, and 13 to 18 year olds could not work for more than 12 hours a day. Part of the individualized educational plan requires the determination of the child’s least restrictive environment (LRE). For the vast majority of children receiving an IEP, the least restrictive environment is a general education classroom (mainstream classroom). Many children receive speech services, resource room reading help, and other supportive measures and the environment that would least restrict their ability to succeed is the mainstream setting.
