The author’s objective was to implement Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Flexibility plans. In line with this, educators play a challenging task in molding not just the mental capacity of their students but also their eagerness for learning which will further assist them to enhance their preparedness for college and career. It can be premised that teaching college and career preparedness to high school student should not be solely entrusted to teachers but most especially to school counselors since the latter may have practiced up-to-date strategies and approaches to career counseling through test results interpretation. Relatively, the research study of Mattern, Radunzel and Westrick (2015) relates to the importance of developing academic competency benchmarks to facilitate academic and career decision making. The researchers averred that the conceptualization of indicators or benchmarks of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) readiness may be regarded as valuable in educating students about the degree of knowledge and skills that they need to achieve to have a probable chance of advancement in first-year STEM courses.
Introduction Many teachers are worried when faced with the task of teaching a multi-grade class-which refers to ‘the teaching of different Ages, Grades, and abilities,’ (Little, 1995). Due to the wide range of ages, abilities, maturity and interests in a multi-grade classroom, the teacher may not know how: organize the classroom, plan lessons, using the curriculum, create time table and lead or supervisor students of varying ages and abilities, at once. This can be extremely difficult, especially for a new teacher who has just being introduced to the principles of multi-grade teaching. However, with proper planning and organization multi-grade teaching can be very advantageous for both the students and the teacher. In this diverse classroom, there can be benefits of the older students assisting younger ones in group activities and otherwise; multiple intelligent is being catered for by the teacher and other students will be getting the experience; students may become better at independent learning and develop a greater sense of responsibility, these and
Year by year homeschooling systems are letting more students to register to their education system. Especially in the United States, so many students are moving from their schools to study at home. However, these students are looking forward for the future college studies (Philips, 2010). In addition, the United States are caring a lot on educating, that’s why they are creating so many ways to study and to get the information
ABSTRACT: Professional development generally refers to ongoing learning opportunities available to teachers and other education personnel through their schools and other means of social interaction. Productive professional development is mostly visible as vital to school success and teacher satisfaction, but it has also been maligned for its expenditure, roughly determined goals, and the lack of data on resulting teacher and school improvement that characterizes many efforts. With schools these days facing an attire of complex challenges from working with an increasingly diverse population of students, to integrating new technology in the classroom, to meeting rigorous academic standards and goals—observers continue to stress the need for teachers

An article written by Emily Hanford, suggests that the success of getting students to maximizing their potential at college is understanding how each student learns. Teaching methods should be changed and it should be understood that there are constantly a diverse set of learners that make college slightly better. Hanford also states that education is crucial in our rapidly evolving world and that the learning methods that are used aid in the student becoming a better person post-graduation as well, which I wholeheartedly believe in and should be broadened across campuses. In an article written by Julie Lain to YOUniversityTV, she states how she is thankful for the opportunities that a prestigious college education has given her. Not only did it build her societal skills, but she also improved her writing skills tremendously as well.
In order to truly resolve these concerns, it must start with revamping the way the educational system works. Educators must stress the importance of these soft skills, and integrate them into the curriculum being taught. The earlier the students begin to develop these skills, the easier it will be for managers to integrate and facilitate healthy workplace relationships upon hiring them into the organization. From the other perspective, managers must continue to understand new digital communication platforms in order to remain relevant and effectively communicate to these new generations of potential employees. In doing so, they can continue to make educated decisions on which communication platform to use in different
Assessments are now widely administered as means to improve teaching and learning. Specifically, it may also be seen as an everyday, on-going part of teaching and learning in the classroom. Assessing the academic achievement of every student is an essential part in order to develop or enhancing their higher order thinking skills. By conducting assessment, teachers’ therefore could identify necessary adjustment that need to be made in order to ensure students are able to master what has been taught. In general, as cited in Looi-Chin and Soubakeavathi (2013) several studies on teachers’ assessment in United States (Bailey, 2004; Yueming, Eslami and Burlbaw, 2006) have shown that a majority of teachers valued assessment provides benefits to their

“Research shows that students in co-educational schools are often better prepared to succeed in post-secondary education and to enter the workforce, (Leighton).” It gives a positive self-image and helps develop the confidence of our future leaders, which students need. Students are preparing for the future and surprisingly, having both genders in the same teaching environment will actually help the students in the future. It makes them more confident when talking to the opposite sex, which students will need as they pursue their career as an adult. Students in single-sex classrooms will one day live and work side-by-side with members of the opposite sex. Educating students in single-sex schools limit their opportunity to work cooperatively and co-exist successfully with members of the opposite sex.
