EVOLUTION OF EDUCATION SYSTEM
India and Pakistan were partitioned and given independence in 1947, after which there was remarkable improvement in scientific and technological education and research; illiteracy, however, remained high. The new constitution adopted by India did not change the overall administrative policy of the country. Education continued to be the prime responsibility of the state governments, and the union (central) government continued to assume responsibility for the coordination of educational facilities and the maintenance of appropriate standards in higher education and research and in scientific and technical education. n 1950 the government of India appointed the Planning Commission to prepare a blueprint for the development of different aspects of life, including education. Thereafter, successive plans (usually on a five-year basis) were drawn and implemented. The main goals of these plans were (1) to achieve universal elementary education, (2) to eradicate illiteracy, (3) to establish vocational and skill training programs, (4) to upgrade standards and modernize all stages of education, with special emphasis on technical education, science, and environmental education, on morality, and on the relationship between school and work, and (5) to provide facilities for high-quality education in every district of the country. From 1947 the government of India also appointed three important commissions for suggesting educational reforms. The University Education Commission of 1949 made valuable recommendations regarding the reorganization of courses, techniques of evaluation, media of instruction, student services, and the recruitment of teachers. The Secondary Education Commission of 1952–53 focused mainly on secondary and teacher education. The Education Commission of 1964–66 made a comprehensive review of the entire field of education. It developed a national pattern for all stages of education. The commission’s report led to a resolution...
...Essay #1: Education
When it comes to education, many people automatically have a negative reaction; especially when discussing the United States’ educational system. Whether it is grade school or a higher education, most people would agree that something needs to be changed. However, finding the specific “what” that should be changed in the educationsystem is hard, because it’s failure is a combination of many things, rather than one direct problem. As citizens, we know that flaws are expected in any sort of process/system and the educationsystem, being so vast, is bound to have many issues in its own. Authors and scholars from around the world, such as Jonathan Kozol, David Orr, Sir Ken Robinson and many others, help present these flaws to the public through intense persuasive and informational writing/speaking. Data shows that the United States has been and continues to fall behind other countries like Finland, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, and Korea in typical testing of subjects like mathematics, science, and reading (Husén 455). Standards of education are varying from country to country and this is a direct reflection of differing goals per country on national scale, in terms of education. The United States has seemingly lower overall standards of education, as well as various and less...

The Evolution of Education through Time
The right for all children to receive a sound education was once just an idea. The public school did not even exist until the 1800’s. Several leading theorists and many movements that span several hundred years made education what it is today. John Calvin, Horace Mann, John Dewey and Sputnik are just a few of the largest influences on education as it evolved from a privilege only for aristocrats to becoming a right for all.
John Calvin, a thankfully outspoken theologian, believed education should be for the public and not just the aristocrats. He believed that education of the general public and teaching them to read the Bible was the key to more individuals receiving salvation. His beliefs prompted him to open the Geneva Academy which provided tuition free education to young people. His academy was the precursor to our modern schools. John Calvin’s schools stressed curriculum that included Latin grammar and vocabulary paired with physical exercise. He also opposed corporal punishment in schools and asked that the principals of his schools use gentle methods to enforce discipline,...
...Almost all the people believe that every educationsystem in the world has some or the other flaws and it is next to impossible to have an ideal educationsystem that will work for everyone, because everyone has there own priorities and and ideas for an ideal educationsystem. Even though the students of Asian countries specifically India, achieve higher academic achievements, and they rank at the top on math and science tests. America is still a superpower, the American educationsystem is still one of the best in the world. With increasing test scores and almost highest academic achievement, people have questioned if the current educational system is the indeed the one that works for everyone. On the other side of the Pacific, the situation is totally different. If the US educational system is better than the their system, is there a need for them to adopt the American educational system ?
America is the land of opportunity, which is famous for its democratic society and unique culture. People in America like to be free, to do whatever they want to do without any restrictions. This belief is reflected in the American educational system. In American schools, teachers and students are at the same social level. Students are encouraged to exchange their own opinions with the teacher. While in...

... In the past, Hong Kong education was closely modeled on the system that was found in the UK. This is hardly surprising since Hong Kong was administered by Britain from 1841 to 1997, when the former UK colony was handed back to China. However, since 1997, the educationsystem taught in local schools has undergone a series of changes. While some of these changes have reflected different language of instruction policies, there have also been changes to the senior secondary curriculum. The new model, brought in at the beginning of the 2009/10 academic year, is now more in line with those found in China and even the USA.
While there are nine years of compulsory schooling in Hong Kong, six in primary school and three in junior secondary school, the Hong Kong government has recently moved to make it easier and more likely that the majority of students will receive 12 years of education. The removal of fees and one series of public exams in senior secondary school is a move which will make a full twelve years’ of education a much more accessible option for a great number of students.
There has always been schooling beyond the years of compulsory education. The majority of students attend 3 years of kindergarten (K1 – K3) before attending primary school. Under the new secondary system, the three years of junior secondary is followed by three years of senior...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play
Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
The Evolution of ERP System
In the past 30 years, ERP software has been steadily accepted firstly by large multi-nationals, and now small-medium businesses (SMBs). Sadly, the acceptance rate by SMBs is low as the main barrier is still cost. An ERP implementation can be a lengthy one too. However, the rate adoption is on the uptake as more SMBs are beginning to realize the importance of an ERP system. The SMB sector has been recognized as the next driver of growth in the ERP business.
This paper will describe the evolution of a software technology called Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System. It will trace the beginnings of this technology and how it has evolved from the early 70s till now. It will chart how the technology has moved from its beginnings when it first ran on mainframes, to now, where it many vendors have provided interfaces to the internet to enable clients to have a complete online presence. It will also try to predict what the future of the ERP space will look like.
This paper will conclude with a simple truth that the ERP technology, though developed in the 1970s and 1980s will still retain its basic core of being integrated business software that brings together the various business processes within and without the business entity, linking organizations and individuals interested in the business offerings of the company.
