If I were allowed to the opportunity to design my own school, and resources were not a question, there are many different aspects I would implement into said school. First and foremost, I would make sure school was available and mandatory to all children, very much like it is today. Education is a critical part of developing as an individual; therefore I would make sure each child has the means to attend school.
I would also address the issue of teachers. I feel as if this is one of the most difficult aspects of school to monitor, due to the resources available. Many teachers today are not well equipped and lack the desire and passion to efficiently teach. If I could create my ideal...

Where children live plays a pivotal role on how well a child receives an education. This paper will explain how and where children grow up and where their education finishes.
According to U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics 340,000 young people dropped out of high school between October 2009 and October 2010. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reports 2.2 million freshman students (68.6% of all 2008 high school graduates) were enrolled in college as of October of that year.

There are many differences as well as similarities when it comes to private verses public education for children. This is a subject that many parents have a solid opinion on, where others do not have enough information to hold an educated opinion. Some of the differences are abundantly clear, such as price, while others are written in shades of gray and do not have clear cut differences, such as the curriculum differences or the level of engagement which will be present in lessons. Both schools will make claims, and many are valid, but when it comes to your child having strong educational foundations, it is a decision that parents take very personally and need more information to choose...

The School Uniform Debate: Measuring Effectiveness
Pete Cade Jr.
With the rising numbers of violence in schools coupled with a decline in academic achievement, many stakeholders have begun to condemn the state of public school education. The situation has prompted schools across the country to look for unorthodox approaches to improve schools and the performance of their students. The result has led to a spreading initiative that dictates what students can wear. More than just a dress code policy, school uniforms take into account colors and styles from head to toe. Even with the ongoing debate of being constitutional, the trend continues to be adopted throughout...

The Senior Itch—the incurable chaffing we all crave to scratch. The cure? Graduation. As we progress through our high school years growing with wisdom and maturity, we all yearn for freedom. Yet what we desire most is not always what is best for us. Although most won't want to admit it, extending our high school career to five years would make an important and beneficial impact on our future. With the four years that are currently provided, there is not enough time for motivated students to accomplish their goals before college. Merely being accepted by a selective college or university requires much pre-planned effort that is literally unavailable to students already concerned with grades...

“School Reform: Raising Student Achievement by Focusing on Intermediate and Middle School Literacy”
The current trend around the country is a push for early education with a focus on literacy. According to the publication “Every Child Reading: An Action Plan” (Learning First Alliance, 1998) literacy success should be formed by the time a student reaches the first grade. This trend is appropriate in helping to close the gap in student achievement in urban schools across the nation (Learning First Alliance, 1998). The detriment of this strategy is that there are generations of children who have already moved beyond this age group. These children...

The significance of companies to institute a code of ethics in their workplace is paramount. This will, in return, establish and foster an ethical business philosophy. Ethical best practices, alongside the organization’s practices, can both endorse or disrupt operational or organizational diversity. Business ethics include appropriate conduct and incorrect behaviors or after action when moral questions and choices take place within a business. Discussing the diversity of a program itself must include cultural, corporate and external powers. A company must be aware of the difference from its workforce, whether this is their communities, religion or their family make up within each...

School Funding Issues
Shandrina Griffin Stewart
I live in the state of Oklahoma where our funding for education is not up to par. We are short $1 billion dollars in school operations funding and $3 billion dollars sort in facility funding. In Oklahoma there are many options for parents when it comes to educating their children. There is private, public, year round, home, and virtual schooling available. This is good because parents can put their children where their education needs can be met. However, this can also be bad for funding here in Oklahoma schools.

Online Education Pros and Cons
November 7, 2013
Mary Ellen Greenwood
Online schools, as well as traditional schools have many advantages and disadvantages. Some may find that online schooling is for them, and some may find that a traditional school is the type of learning environment to help best achieve receiving a degree. Students can earn the same valuable degree from an online school as a traditional college or university. It depends on if the students are comfortable with a structured outline and the level of commitment it will take to complete online courses. Online students must also have good study habits as...

Clear Instructions to Manage Classroom Activities
By Lauren Platt, eHow Contributor
Many off-task and disruptive behaviors arise when students do not have a coherent sense of direction in classroom activities. Ambiguous directives are frustrating for both students and teachers and lead to feelings of failure and purposelessness. Without clear instructions, it is only natural that students will drift away from activities and engage in off-task behaviors such as talking. Concise instructions and clear expectations are the cornerstone of effective classroom management and successful learning activities.

1. The intellectual purposes of schooling include the following; to teach basic cognitive skills such as reading writing, and mathematics; to transmit specific knowledge.

3. The social purposes of schooling are to socialize children into the various roles, behaviors, and values of the society. This process, referred...

School uniforms should be required.
Should school uniforms be required? Some parents and educators say that uniforms help students focus on academics instead of fashion. Others believe that kids should have the freedom to choose what they wear to school. After considering both sides of the issue, I strongly believe that uniforms should be required in school.
Some parents and teachers think that letting kids wear what they want is a recipe for trouble. Without uniforms, they say, kids will focus on clothes instead of schoolwork. Kids tend to bully other kids because of their clothes or shoes. There will be pressure to buy expensive clothes, which many families cannot afford. For these...

There were many points influencing the fact that I wasn’t prepared enough initially to go through this experience so suddenly. On 10th september,2015 I was a boy who had flown 18000 miles from Kolkata, India and come to experience a completely different culture and phase of my life. I never expected it to be really easy to get through this change, because I knew they were both going to be very different lives, and life in college would be different because of all the freedom, and responsibility.

The time you spend in school.
Instead of having kids sitting in school for hours and hours a day I believe that short sweet and simple school days should take over. There is generally a lot of wasted time during the school day and everyone could receive benefits for shorter days. The teachers would have a lot more time on their hands to grade papers. With all their extra time they can devote more time to their students and any help they may require. The kids would benefit because no one wants to be in school hours on end. Kids would have more free time in their day. They would not need to stress over getting homework done on top of playing sports or any extracurricular activities that...

Running head: STOP ADVERTISING IN SCHOOL!

Stop advertising in school
“Teenagers are attractive consumers; they spend $155 billion a year, children younger than 12 years spend another $25 billion, and both groups influence another $200 billion of their parent’s spending each year.”(American Academy of Pediatrics, 2006). For above reasons and statistics cited, an enormous number of European countries, such as, France and Switzerland prohibit advertisement in school. Therefore, companies’ advertisements should be illegal in school for three reasons: parasitize the education environment, effect children vulnerability and contribute to children’s addiction of some...

Tariff and non-tariff barriers can affect your export business.

By imposing trade barriers, the governments are looking to achieve some or all of these economic targets.
" Encouraging domestic production
" Protecting local employees
" Increasing revenues
" Reducing consumption and reliance on exports
Whether they are able to achieve these targets or not, one thing is for sure, these trade barriers are going to hurt your business, if you are looking to export to that country. Read a little to get an idea of what...

In this vast and unlimited world, a whole spectrum of students exists. As Anne Frank once pointed out, “The weak die out and the strong will survive, and will live on forever”; likewise this applies to the school context where certain students strive while others struggle in vain. What sets the mightiest to the weakest apart is the immense number of factors which I will split into three contexts, mainly individual, family and school aspects. This discussion will be revolving around Singaporean secondary school students, and my points for each context would be: one’s mind-set to do well (individual), parents’ expectations and finance (family), as well as the school environment.

Discuss the ways in which Yeats presents his ideas about ageing in ‘Among School Children’
The theme of ageing is central in the poem ‘Among School Children’ as surrounded by youthful children during his visit to a convent school in Waterford, Yeats reviews his own deteriorating state and contemplates whether old age is a state where people can express their true selves. In 1926, Senator Yeats visited St Otterans, which inspired him to write ‘Among School Children’. The poem shows an external persona, Yeats as the ‘smiling public man’ but blurs this with Yeats tormented inner persona where he writes about his true emotions towards ageing and his disgust of his and his desired lover, Maud...

Despite the fact that computer and video games gave the same multimedia capability as CAI programs, Begg et. al.

Bullying has become an epidemic that the educational system has been campaigning to cease through the establishment of school wide anti-bullying policies. In recent years the federal government has implemented the National Safe Schools Framework and the Civil Liability Act of 2002, to assist educators with diminishing schoolyard bullying (Campbell 64). Since the development and rise of technological resources, cyber-bullying has expanded the opportunity for the act of bullying to take place; bullying is no longer isolated face to face. Students’ abilities of escaping to a safe haven, away from their harasser, are almost nonexistent. The use of the internet and cellphones...
