Born a slave in 1862, Ida B. Wells-Barnett was the oldest daughter of James and Lizzie Wells. The Wells family, as well as the rest of the nation's slaves, were freed about six months after Ida's birth, thanks to the Emancipation Proclamation. However, living in Mississippi as African Americans, they faced racial prejudices and were restricted by discriminatory rules and practices.
Wells-Barnett's father served on the first board of trustees for Rust College and made education a priority for his seven children. It was there that Wells-Barnett received her early schooling, but she had to drop out at the age of 16, when tragedy struck her family. Both of her parents and one of her siblings...

Why Education Matters
If someone told me that education didn’t matter, they would basically be stating that knowledge is not necessary in succeeding in this society. After the great deal of time our country has spent in expanding adolescence minds to help them attain a stable job and a successful life, there can be no reason why education and college is a waste of time and money.
Education is started at a very young age to help give a layer of foundation for adolescence to expand their knowledge on. Students begin learning and getting educated at a very young age. Everything that deals with life is taught in Elementary and Middle School. It not only helps students mentally,...

Technology in Education
In our lives today we expect technology to make a difference, and particularly in furthering our education. We see technologies effects as beneficial. We look for it to change, and improve, what has come before it. Technology is the set of means without which certain kinds of constructive activity would be almost impossible. It supports our efforts to appeal to different learning styles, which give us a way to interact with each other and extend the learning experiences. It is a good way to extend the essential skills and knowledge of students. By integrating technology into our educational programs it provides students with additional tools to...

Feasibility of implementation

This article argues that even an
allocation of 6% of the gross
domestic product to the education
budget would not be sufficient to
fund universal school education
until the very distant future if the
government school system is used
as the only instrument. The only
way to meet the Right to

low cost private schools as a
significant instrument of the
government education policy. On
the contrary, the proposed rte
bill introduces provisions that
would oppose low cost private

Assignment 01: Assessments
My high school uses assessments in various different ways. The fundamental use of them, the most obvious in my opinion, is to assign a grade to each student that illustrates their understanding of the material. Teachers do this by giving tests and quizzes. In addition to assigning grades, my high school uses assessments as a basis to decide whether a student can move up to a higher level course or if they should stay in the base level one. For example, a student’s grade on a final math exam their junior year is used to determine if that student will take calculus their senior year or honors calculus. To me, these uses of assessments are completely valid,...

Education in South Carolina
Education in South Carolina public schools has always been a proverbial thorn in the side of the pride of the state. Consistently, the state has ranked near the bottom of rankings in average Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, low salaries for teachers, and curriculums that were at best below satisfactory. The primary reason for such dismal statistics is the lack of funding available to improve educational resources within the state. Furthermore, the inequities between public schools located in more affluent areas and those in poorer school districts created a statewide need for funding to give every child within South Carolina an equal opportunity to...

THE PROBLEM AND LITERATURE REVIEW
1.1 Background of the Study
The current era places big emphasis on the role of instructional supervision in the development of the education and improvement of student learning outcomes. It’s not the sole responsibility of the teachers to bear the tasks of delivering basic education services to the clienteles but rather a two-way process between them and the instructional leaders. As Ekyaw (2004) states it, it’s an interactive process that depends on the source supervisor and the teacher.
Instructional Supervision (IS) is the phase of school administration which focusesprimarily upon the achievement of the appropriate expectations of...

The Role of Board of Regents and Board of Trustees in Higher Education
This essay intends to discuss the role of the Board of Regents and those of the Board of Trustees. Both phrases refer to higher education governing boards. The Board of Trustees is the most common term. Universities and colleges in the United States of America are managed by boards of trustees, regents, or other correspondingly titled entities. With regard to their place in the ordered structure, such boards are comparable to the Boards of directors in companies and corporations. America’s higher education is exclusive...

Students under China’s education model, who can never be creative
Last year, a book published by the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School, Amy Chua, named Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, set off a bunch of discussions about the China’s education model in the worldwide. Is the education model which is “harsh, exhausting, endless practice questions” good for the development of children? Some people support it, especially some Chinese parents, who may even hold their arms to declare their endless fanaticism to this education model. Unfortunately, I do not have any resonance to them. As a student who grew up under that “unique” education system, I have much more...

Moral education refers to helping children acquire those virtues or moral habits that will help them individually live good lives and at the same time become productive, contributing members of their communities. In this view, moral education should contribute not only to the students as individuals, but also to the social cohesion of a community. The word moral comes from a Latin root (mos, moris) and means the code or customs of a people, the social glue that defines how individuals should live together.Every enduring community has a moral code and it is the responsibility and the concern of its adults to instill this code in the hearts and minds of its young.

College education is an important part of American life. I personally think college isn’t for everyone. There have been recent case studies taken, showing increased amounts of people who would choose work over college. Methods of surveys have been used for centuries, not proving to be as accurate as a case study. A few current college students even said they wish they could just work. This could easily be rectified by better communication in the school systems.

It is also estimated that the with baby boomer population entering into retirement, there will be an increased need for nurses in general but also for nurses that are capable of handling more complex patient care situations.

Philosophy of Discipline and Classroom Management
I believe Classroom Management is the key component in any educational setting. I believe that if students are in a safe environment, then learning can take place. This doesn’t necessarily mean punishing behavior problems but rather a combination of setting the tone in a class, preventing behavior problems with interesting and engaging curriculums and effectively including all students in the classroom so that their needs are met. Having the right environment for all students to learn is my major goal of implementing good classroom...

Using material from Item A and elsewhere, assess functionalist views of the role of education in modern society (20 marks)
The consensus functionalist approach is just one of many that attempt to explain the role of education in modern society. Functionalism is based on the view that society is a system of interdependent parts held together by a shared culture or value consensus. Each part of society such as the family, economy and education system performs functions that help to maintain society. Functionalists such as Durkheim and Parsons seek to discover what functions that educations performs and what is does to meet society’s needs. Marxists such as Althusser and Bowle & Gintis...

Education is central to an empowerment approach to health promotion
Education has a vital role to play in the empowerment process and is thus central to health promotion. It was not always seen this way, however, and in the early 1980s, health education had a rough time of it. Some writers criticised health education for being, as they saw it, a series of individually focused campaigns designed to change lifestyles, and which therefore disempowered people by 'blaming the victim' for their own ill-health (Rodmell and Watt, 1986). As a result there was for some time an emphasis on health promotion, which was seen as advocating structural changes to the social, political and public health...

Importance of Moral Education in Your Child’s Education
Moral education is becoming an increasingly popular topic in the fields of psychology and education. Media reports of increased violent juvenile crime, teen pregnancy, and suicide have caused many to declare a moral crisis in our nation. Jean Piaget is among the first psychologists whose work remains directly relevant to contemporary theories of moral development. In his writing, he focused specifically on the moral lives of children, studying the way children play games in order to learn more about children's beliefs about right and wrong. According to Piaget, all development emerges from action; that is to say, individuals...

Preschool makes kids’ future better
Some people believe that it is a waste of time to have their kids go to preschool. My stance is by attending preschool children have a head start in life and it improves their future.
I interviewed a friend that has a different view. My main reason is that kids have 13 years (and then college!) that they "have" to be in school. Preschool (in my opinion) is glorified daycare that takes time away that little kids should be spending with their parents. So much of what they are taught can be learned in day-to-day life (letters and early reading, counting and numbers, colors and behavior) from their parents, family, friends, and the world they interact with....

Someone approached me to teach his ward some mathematics or rather to supplement what could not be comprehensively deciphered from the notes from the plethora of private tutors (I don't know whether the notes are photocopies of age-old yellowish original manuscripts written in the last century and passed on from generation to generation). I am not blaming the notes or their authors rather I have the highest regard for both.
But what a young impressionable mind in early teens need to appreciate is the beauty, thrill and magic of a subject. For example, in Mathematics the student should be exposed to and told about the interconnecting web that different...
