What this means is that we need a more personalized plan for our schooling. Again this can relate into better placement based on their latent ability to learn, but also their desire to follow a certain career path. Why should a student who wants to be a civil engineer and design bridges for a living need to know what part of a human cell is responsible for creating energy? The pros of updating our schooling system quite obviously outweighs the cost, so why have we not done it already? This is the question that we need to be asking the politicians that we are electing.
In schools throughout the world, there is a need to improve teaching and learning of students because a high-quality and equitable education is recognized as a key to the success of people and society (OECD, 2012; OECD, 2015). It is acknowledged that traditional operating model of schools is incapable of dealing with demands of knowledge based society (Sahlberg, 2011; Barath, 2013), and thus the teaching profession is challenged (OECD, 2005). In order to provide students with opportunities to learn competences needed in contemporary and in future societies, schools have to change their operating models. One effective strategy for improving teaching and learning has been developing schools as professional learning communities (DuFour & Mattos, 2013; Hargreaves & Fullan, 2012; Sigurðardóttir, 2010; Barber & Mourshed, 2009; Vescio, Ross, & Adams, 2008; Timperley, 2008). Professional learning community, as an object of a research, is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon and the literature shows a variety of approaches.
The benefits of technology are numerous and are helping us to build a new world, affecting for good our health and educational system. It is destroying some ‘worn-out’ but very good values that we as humans built throughout our existence. Our moral and social values are still the pillars of our modern society, and we ought to not definitely forget that. In my opinion, we only need a way to fit all these amazing values in the new world that we are building. We need to find a harmony in our social existence and the usage of
Reda (2015) states “If we want to see the world as a just and fair place where everyone is given equal opportunities, education is what we require. Education is a must if we want to do away with the existing differences between different social classes and genders. It opens a whole world of opportunities for the poor so that they may have an equal shot at well-paying jobs.” Creating education in a democratic state has been aimed by many states, theorists, philosophers and so on. Countries in this era have succeeded is aiming for a democratic education, some are getting there and other countries fail in creating a democratic education. The manner in which manner is received plays a crucial role in the life of everyone but as much as that is important to the human existence, the manner in which education is given is just as vital.
There has been continuous debate going on whether Population growth is really a problem or not? If yes, then what are the causes and consequences of it to a developing nations as compared to developed nations. This paper will use India as an example to discuss these issues, as India is the second most populated country of the world after China. World’s population has increased from 6.6 billion in 2007 to 7.6 billion in just a decade and is expected to exceed 9.2 billion by 2050. This is a significant rise in the population, despite all the measures taken by United Nations, Government (as in China) and different NGO’s to educate people about the consequences of having more children on the health of the mother, on the financial situation of the family and also on the country.
1. Introduction 1.1 Background: Do you ever want to be successful in your life? Well if the answer to that question is yes, then education is the key that will open up the doors of success. People have to understand that without education, the chances of succeeding in life are very slim to none. According to my own worldview of the importance of education is that, if you want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things that the world has to offer, you need to get educated.
Obviously, education is an important part of the people’s life, that’s why the right to get education has been accepted in the Human Rights. And everybody knows that all rights included in Human Rights are for their better lives. So, for a better life, being educated is important. Therefore, researchers are trying to find the factors for a good education system. Class size is one of the major factors that affects in improving academic achievement.
He argues that the increase in enrollments that follow the school fees abolition may be far above the available supply of schools, teachers, and educational materials as was the case in Malawi where the ratio of pupils to classrooms increased to 119:1, the ratio of pupils to teachers increased to 62:1, and the ratio of pupils to textbooks increased to 24:1. The same author also reported that the abolition of school fees in Cameroon, Uganda and Mozambique, also resulted in a rapid pupil ratio which remained well above 50:1, thus having a direct impact on the quality of education. “Recent evidence suggests that little learning takes place in schools when the pupil: teacher ratio exceeds 50” (Plank, 2007:4). The consequence has been to ask teachers to work with twice as many students or employ large numbers of unqualified teachers which is likely to lead to academic failure for many students, most notably the poor and vulnerable children who are the supposed beneficiaries of abolishing school fees. “… Due to competing priorities, it is difﬁcult to adequately ﬁnance high-quality primary education.
It makes significant contribution to the economic and social development of the country and makes the country stronger. Work encouraged participation of civil rights for every individual and reduced the level of public spending. Family life also plays a vital role in my community and much in my country. A perfect family has more important influence in bringing up decent society. Right from the first moment of our life, our families are the first teachers.
The economic and development disparity between the developed and developing countries is a major concern. The people living in a developing nation should have an equal opportunities to lead healthy and successful lives. Economic security without harming the environment and preserving it for the future generations, should be the goal of development. The idea of such sustainable development was highlighted for the first time in the 1922 Rio Earth Summit. The summits objective was to agree on the best and most efficient ways to ensure development as well as save the environment and reduce its deterioration.
