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
As long as you follow the curricula and instructions and you are on time in submitting requirements, you will be fine. Part of the problem is how many districts have used it. Some school districts decided to combine it with Basic Skills or Emotional Disorder (ED) courses along with the RSP and SDC programs. The results have been disastrous academically and management-wise.
Learning, effectiveness, accountability, and transparency are central to the success of our strategy. To most effectively reach our goals, and the goals of our host country partners, USAID collaborates with partners globally to generate and use evidence as the basis for continuous learning and program improvement.
Such parents believe that the more children they have, the better although they can least afford to take care of them. Their children because they grow up in disadvantated circumstances, oftentimes become problematic to the school system and later to society. They are benignly neglected at best because their parents cannot effectively raise a large number of children. That, or they force the oldest/older children to be parents to the younger siblings. These children for the most part are left to raise and support themselves at a young age because their parents … Read more
This is about how I help my son, who is dyslexic and dyspraxic with his schoolwork and with his self-esteem. Discovery Education partners with like-minded organizations around the world to create a broad range of free classroom and family learning resources that complement and extend learning beyond the bell. Oh dear…this was supposed to be a comment; not its own hub! Well done, Learn Things Web. Voted Up, Useful and Interesting.
Raising your nose into the air at the sight of a 2 year old playing outside in diapers is fluff no matter how important it might seem to let the world know you are disgusted. Donating clothing to help those in need is what counts. The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.

I think blaming teachers is extremely unfair. They are part of a bureaucracy with no real control over what to teach and how to teach. Teachers don’t control curricula, standards or testing. They have to make do with whatever materials, worksheets and curricula they are given, even if they believe that they are ineffective. They have to prepare students for tests that often don’t effectively test student ability. The belief that teachers are responsible for educational failure has lead to ideas like merit pay and compensation based on student performance. This is a really good article and I agree with Robwrite. I also want to add that we are all intelligent in our own way. This is why I do not agree with our current system of education. While one student might excel in math another might be better suited to the arts or maybe even building things such as an auto mechanic does. Why does our current educational system not encourage students to learn what they have an interest or an affinity to? Also, I would like to point out that the system fails students because they do not prepare them for the real world. Kids do not know … Read more
Over the past twenty-five years, the educational advancement made by women has been significant. The gaps for educational attainment between the genders have all but disappeared for the young women being educated today. While girls still lag somewhat behind boys on mathematical and science achievement, girls in high school average higher grades and reach higher achievement levels in reading and writing compared to same age boys. The discrepancies in achievement by subject persist into adulthood. It has been shown that women between the ages of 16 and 65 achieved higher scores on comprehension and interpretation of prose that similar age men. There were also less women (40 percent) scoring at a low level in these areas compared to men (44 percent). Consistent with finding from earlier ages, women do not score as well as men in number related subjects such as mathematics (Sax, 2008). Great Lens: I have always found that if an activity is not fun for the adult the chances are the 3 year old will not enjoy it too. Children take their love of play from those around them. All too often parents just sit the child in front of the TV and wonder why when they … Read more
