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. Many children will benefit from special educational services to a great extent. Many children benefit so much that they no longer require services or extra support. These children are declassified and no longer require an IEP (the declassification process requires objective testing to demonstrate that the child no longer requires extra help to obtain equal access).
Conversely, in the poorer nations and among the poor in the United States and in first world nations, larger families are the norm. People who have large families tend to be less educated, intelligent, and affluent. They contend that children are a preordained part of life which cannot be stopped. They see no point in planning for their children. They oftentimes cannot and/or refuse to see the ramifications for their actions. They are of the school of what happens, happens as far as having children are concerned.
Adults: usually between 15 and 64 years old. This is sometimes subdivided for further analysis into young adults (15-35 years old), and older adults (35-64 years old). The adult age group, particularly those in age group 15-49, is the most reproductive and productive, supporting the bulk of the other two groups. It is also the most mobile age group.
Females today are also more likely than males to attend college and surveys of educational institutions show that females are just as likely to graduate with a post-secondary degree as are males. This coincides with an increase in the expectations women have for pursuing careers after education as well as increased enrollment in graduate programs. Despite the continued discrepancy in math and science achievement for girls and boys, women are choosing to pursue degrees in the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering at higher rates than ever before. These changes in women’s goals for their education, underscores the need for continued focus on how best to educate women from the time they first enter school (Ceci, Ginther, Kahn, & Williams, 2014).
I liked your focus on others, and not insulting other people that disagree with you, etc. Very interesting hub. Its a fine line to teach others what is best, without trying to teach them what is best (all at the same time lol) because we all want to help our kids, for instance. I think I got the basic gist of what you were trying to say though. A lot of philosophy comes into play when we are discussing all of these things, and I saw you used some quotes from philosophers. On the one hand, there is basic knowledge of facts that you can know, then there is wisdom which seems to be a whole different thing. Great and thought provoking!
With English Language Learners in the classroom, it is necessary to differentiate. They will likely be unable to handle everything the same as the native speakers. Each student is unique and learns differently. It is important to tailor the lesson to most appropriately meet their needs. English is an extremely difficult language to learn, so patience and support are needed to most successfully help a non-native English speaker become literate.
