Instead of endless top-down mandates, these revolutionary inroads into the education system are coming from the states. Forty-two states and the District of Columbia have laws on the books allowing charter schools to operate, while half the states have some form of private school choice program. The states should continue to expand parent choice and push educational institutions to compete with each other to provide the best product, just like providers of any other service.
Everybody thought it was a great thing when computers were introduced into the classroom. Einstein did not talk until he was 3 years old and his teachers described him as mentally slow! Never give up on your dreams and especially those of your children. Parents should give their children cash or investment funds to start a business rather than sending … Read more

For example, , which is now the top job site, was started in 1997 by an individual just like you (Sanjeev Bhikchandani). Listen and respond when he tells me he’s tired. Just take over the writing to get the homework done. Thanks for posting about this controversial subject. Lots of great info, nice hub!
I think it’s a matter of expectations. Having taken online courses and traditional courses personally, and having interacted with students and with employees with both types, there is a difference. So education gained through attending schools and colleges is not necessarily the best education or even the right education.
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.
In an ideal world all children should be treated with the same respect because that’s what all children need. After all, are other kids that different – do … Read more
New skills and knowledge can spark a lifetime of change. Every day, EDC’s programs in education, health, and economic development deliver life-changing opportunities to those who need them most. Population education is different from traditional subjects like English Language, Mathematics, etc which aim to present a body of factual information and methodologies. The aim of population education is to enable students to explore personal values, attitudes, and beliefs as well as to develop the abilities to freely choose a rational course of action. Population education therefore requires emphasizing analysis, starting from collective inquiry and leading to appraisal of issues or problems that affect the learners and their social environments.
Pro-natalist policy: aims at increasing the rate of population growth when the resources of a nation become under-utilized. is congruent, meaning that the person will be comfortable in their own skin, able to acknowledge their own feelings and the feelings of others without condescension.
Education is the key to the future: You’ve heard it a million times, and it’s not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have … Read more
The Seattle Times Education section covers schools at the district, state and federal level. Topics include the University of Washington and other colleges; the Common Core and standardized testing; teacher pay and strikes; charter schools; school discipline; classroom teaching methods; and funding under the McCleary decision. Coverage also includes the Education Lab project. Awesome Library is another student-friendly search engine. As the name implies, this site is also maintained by librarians. This award-winning search engine advertises that they have more than 35,000 resources available, the top five percent in education.
As a kindergarten and first grade teacher, I can never find enough good books at the easiest reading level so I write them myself. There are some great learn to read apps but most of them focus on phonics skills and any books they include are too hard for the very youngest readers. I have just released an iPad app called The Reading Train, which is loaded with more than a hundred easy to read books on 3 levels, a picture dictionary, songbooks and a great quiz train game to extend the learning after every book. It is perfect for ages 4-6, as well as English language learners and children … Read more
How do we reinvent education? These TED Talks explore the latest thinking — from teachers, parents, kids — on how to build a better school. USAID accomplishments under the current Education Strategy (2011-2015) take many forms, including providing clarity on USAID priorities in education, concentrating investments at the global and country level, contributing to education service delivery in our partner countries, and establishing critical partnerships and collaborations that have advanced the goals of the strategy.
I totally understand your point, labeling people is counter-productive and we should be very careful indeed. This is a very big important issue! When my son gets home we connect it to our computer, and we read through all his school work together, make corrections, and do our homework.
If they have other things in common, it will be ok. Things like spirituality and sex and other things can contribute to a happy relationship. When it comes to money, I think the educated woman should save up her money just in case of emergencies but it is likely that the blue collar worker may not be able to spot the household if something like that were to occur.
You can create indoor obstacle courses. We … Read more
Sometimes correspondence education is called Correspondence Courses, Extension Courses, Extended Studies, Home Study, Continuing Education, External Studies, Self-Paced Studies, Independent Studies and Distance Learning (See Reference 1). Similarly, distance education is also called Cyber Education, Online Education, Virtual Education, Technology-Supported Education, Hybrid Education and Distributed Learning. Given the plethora of educational delivery modes currently available, students often get confused over the similarities and differences between correspondence education and distance education, further compounded by the fact that there are still other online delivery modes, such as synchronous live chats or hybrid online classes, among others. BlondeNAmbitious- I think there were some good general points, but off the mark on some. I am successful, and I think ‘The Secret’ is great…those that don’t know how to use it (like the poor), will think it is a ‘Pie-in-the-Sky’ miracle, but still fail. One has to understand what the ‘Secret’ actually is, and know how to apply it (i.e. it is not tangible until you actually get it). One needs to read on the law of attraction (also part of ‘The Secret’), to understand how one’s attitute can make the difference in one’s circumstance. Lousy at business, not necessarily…lousy at finances, absolutely! Slave for … Read more
Are you looking for fun, creative ways to teach the continents? I have taught 5th through 8th graders and developed a number of fun games I can share with you. These games will also work with younger students. If you try to ‘teach’ kids by lecturing to them, they are unlikely to learn much. But, turn the lesson into a game, and they will be sad when the period is over. I don’t live in the UK, but I am in grade 11(16yrs old) and still have grade 12 to complete. (Also, since I left school in the middle of the school year, I wasn’t granted any credits for grade 11, which is why I had to do ministry approved courses online to get credits, which would show up on my transcript, and I could use that for university/college admissions).
Yes, but the really bad parents will blame schools, teachers, classmates, administration, sun spots, and Bigfoot before admitting that they themselves are part of the problem. Compare and contrast the population/resources situation in Nigeria with that of other countries so as to have an insight into the international dimensions of population and family life problems.
You definitely take some extreme … Read more
