The modules will aim at removing gender biases from an early stage, with the ultimate goal of removing gender stereotype stigmas from society. A good example is the Training Manual prepared by the International Centre for Research on Women (Gender Equity Movements in Schools, 2011). A rough educational outline was also presented by Teresa Alvarez in the Equinet Seminar on Gender Equality in Education at Prague (Alvarez, T, 2016). The modules should also address issues related to the LGBTIQ community to empower the younger generation on proper understanding and treatment of these specific communities. The misconception that gender is limited to male and female and is directly related to sex must be addressed at an early stage.
School’s Program. Based from an article written by Alphonso (2017) on gender issues’ effects on schools and on students’ relationship inside the school and her interview with the B.C.’s Education Minister, it is imperative that the school provide a quality and equal treatment towards the students for them to feel welcome regardless of their gender role. Despite this statement, there are also other several groups of parents who opposed this kind of idea and seeks to eradicate sexual orientation and gender identity in the schools’ anti-bullying polices and codes of conduct. Furthermore, there are states in the United States of America which greatly supports and accepts the existence of the full spectrum of gender identity and expression. According
“Education, Equity, and the 21st Century” “Fair isn’t everybody getting the same thing. Fair is everybody getting what they need in order to be successful.” – Rick Riordan The implementation of the K-12 curriculum in the country has introduced new and different factors and processes to compute grades: the statistical proof of the academic performance of students. The Department of Education (DepEd) has described this new system as “standards-based and competency-based”. Even though these changes have been a huge development from past programs decades ago, it does not imply that it is a balanced one to all students. With this, the current grading system should be improved or modified; it inaccurately represents a student’s intellectual capacity when it should be the contrary—it should adjust for students that have other expertise.
Wearing uniforms is a controversial topic that many students, teachers, and parents have been debating since school uniforms were first proposed in the 90s. In today’s world, debates surrounding uniforms are becoming increasingly controversial and a direct fix might not be found, but compromises can be made that help benefit specific schools. School uniforms will be successful in increasing students’ willingness to learn, decreasing chances of displaying signs of gang relations, as well as curbing racial discrimination. Implementing school uniforms into more schools will not just keep order and sophistication, but will also benefit student behavior as seen in various studies. It can be seen that “uniform and dress code proponents argue that they
This is a bit of a disadvantage to the education system because 21st-century skills have been used for all countries. Students with less exposure to the 21st-century skills may cause our generation to be powerless to compete with other generation of nations. Therefore, researchers want to see what are the challenges of 21st-century skills faced by teachers.This 21st-century skill is a transformation made in renewing existing educational standards where the 21st-century education system is more flexible, creative, challenging and more complex. In addressing the growing education world, education needs to be rebuilt to meet the needs of students in the 21st-century world.For example, each school needs to be exposed to a life-related project-based curriculum aimed at attracting students in addressing real-world problems and current issues. To achieve this goal,
Gender equality, which can be achieved only through education, has a multiplier effect on developmental goals has also helped in the reduction of poverty and in the welfare of children . Development rationale for improving access to education also includes women’s role as “safety net” during economic downturns . According to the World Bank’s 2012 World Development Report, Gender Equality and Development, closing these gender gaps matters for development and policymaking. Greater gender quality can lead to enhanced economic productivity, improved outcomes for the coming generation, and make institutions and policies more accountable and representative. Other impediments that hold off the impact of education are culturally embedded values in the society that prescribe gender-oriented jobs.
Young (2009) stresses that within society there are two contrasting views about the aim and value of education in society today. Firstly, one view of education is seen as ‘education as outcomes’. Education as outcomes is whereby the role of education is to provide students with the necessary tools to prepare for tests and examinations. Thus, the view of education is that both the school and child see education as a way of obtaining the grades and not developing the individual. Secondly, the other view of education is to provide the student with specialist knowledge.
Morrow (1989) explained that what bind us together is shared well, without these shared goods, processes of generating social cohesion would suffer the loss of a sense of common purpose and a shared future. I supporting his ideas on value education, I believe if learners could be taught the dos and the don’t, many learners will behave well and wrong doing will be less. The values of learners at school, in the community are very important because learners start to behave in acceptable manners. Teachers tend to behave in a professional way based on the code of conduct for the teacher. Values education can be seen as inculcating or transmitting a set of values which often come from societal or religious rules or cultural
Besides, the inadequacy of technological tools traditional methods of learning still exist at the moment though with integration of the new technology. Though some forms of education reform promote the adoption of progressive education practices, a more holistic approach which focuses on individual students ' needs and self-control many parents and conservative citizens however are concerned with the maintenance of objective educational standards based on testing, which favors a more traditional approach. • 3C Maybe and maybe not. Education is the key to success. Maybe….Investing on its education sector only doe advances to its society.
Therefore, the teaching style of teachers needs to be changed. Teachers’ role is to guide and create activities that go accordingly with the education form and innovation to subdivide according to the characteristics of the students. The teacher is even more important and the need to enhance their study becomes higher (Worapoj Wongkitrungruang. 2015: 1) However, the current model of learning management in Thailand is not yet the correct answer for 21st century social problems. The concrete examples of such results in
