Vocational education is an education of skills that needed for many kinds of jobs for students in normal high schools. These days there are various jobs such as barber, cook, and make-up artists and so on that need specialized education just like vocational education. While some people argue that students should go to trade school, that is school where provides specialized education besides academic skills, I believe high schools should offer vocational education in schools for students because it's more profitable, it makes variation and it's defendable. Firstly, vocational education makes profitable results for high schools. By providing vocational education, students can learn both academic skills and vocational education. As a result, as they learn twice much, their choices for career will be increased. Therefore, students will be able to set their goals while they are studying in broader field and in this way there will be more students going to college and more students getting jobs immediately. Thus, fewer students will drop out schools. Secondly, vocational education makes variation in schools. It means that students' interests will be different each other. So the students can get along with friends who study in different fields. This difference among students can help students to learn more about something new to them. Students who study in trade school do not get this opportunity. However, students who are in normal high school and having vocational education are variable, so they are going to get more information each other. Lastly, vocational education is defendable. It defends students who are below the general academic level. Not all students like to learn academic skills, so students who don't like academic education might give up school curriculum if they are forced to learn only academic education. Then they will lose hope for their future. However, if school provides vocational education, students would find new interests through it. At...
...The Benefits of Early Childhood Education
Early childhood education is a term that is used to commonly describe the formal teaching and care of young children by individuals or professionals other than their family or in settings outside the child’s home. Based on the definition provided by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, early childhood education spans the child’s life from birth to the age of eight.
That being said, the general definition adopted by the majority of school districts throughout the world will typically employ a system of early childhood education starting from birth to when a child starts school—which typically occurs at the age of five.
The definitions regarding early childhood education are somewhat arbitrary; however, the majority of school jurisdictions throughout the world have defined the curriculum as taking place between a child’s birth until he or she reaches the age of 6. This period is regarded as one of the most critical in regards to a child’s development, for the years, which constitute early childhood education, denote the most influential period of growth and development. From zero to age 6 is the period of greatest growth and development for a child; at this stage, the brain develops most rapidly.
During this period, a child will begin walking, talking, developing a...
...Vocationaleducation (education based on occupation or employment) (also known asvocational education and training or VET) is education that prepares people for specific trades, crafts and careers at various levels from a trade, a craft, technician, or a professional position in engineering, accountancy, nursing, medicine, architecture, pharmacy, law etc. Craft vocations are usually based on manual or practical activities, traditionally non-academic, related to a specific trade, occupation, or vocation. It is sometimes referred to as technical education as the trainee directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques. In the UK some higher technician engineering positions that require 4-5 year apprenticeship require academic study to HNC / HND or higher City and Guilds level. Vocationaleducation may be classified as teaching procedural knowledge. This can be contrasted with declarative knowledge, as used in education in a usually broader scientificfield, which might concentrate on theory and abstract conceptual knowledge, characteristic of tertiary education. Vocationaleducation can be at the secondary, post-secondary level,further education level and can interact with the apprenticeship system. Increasingly, vocationaleducation can be recognised in...
...Benefits of Education
The education system of America has faced severe scrutiny. There have been many who have claimed that the schools of today are nothing but a waste of time and harmful towards youths independence and creativity. They believe that our education system is in need of serious reform and they are wrong. The outspoken, spoiled citizens are giving our nations education system a bad name. It is the very educational system they are scrutinizing, that gave them the resources to formulate such ideas! Where would this nation be without public education? In a dark, chaotic place where no new knowledge is obtainable. Even learning the basics of reading, writing, and arithmatic would require an ungodly amount of effort. Our education system is doing a great job of teaching our nations youth, and anyone who argues otherwise is not grateful for this gift America gives.
Recall what you have learned since starting school, now imagine your life without that. Do you suppose that you would have naturally acquired such information? Daniel Quinn theorizes yes, that all knowledge obtained through school could just as easily be learned from imitation. I couldn’t disagree more. Take reading for example, there are millions of people today, in this country, who are illiterate. Imagine how that number would grow if there were no schools to guide students along the pursuit of...
It is unfortunate that the importance of vocationaleducation has diminished over the past twenty five years. The emphasis that used to be placed on learning a trade that would provide a living has disappeared with the typewriter and slide rule. We are no longer encouraging students to become skilled tradespersons. The vocational mentoring programs of recent past have been supplanted with SAT Prep courses. Where will we find skilled mechanics, plumbers, welders, farmers and masons in the coming decades? Who will care for our children, repair our cars, cut our hair, cook and serve our meals at a restaurant? A point has been reached in American Education in particular, where the skilled laborer is disrespected and undue importance is placed on academic secondary education. We have undervalued the experience that can be gleaned through practical application in favor of the classroom lecture.
Unlike the European academic model, the US education system pushes all students toward pursuing a post high school academic path. Statistics show that only 25% of all students complete post high school degrees. However high schools routinely tout their matriculation to college statistics with great aplomb. The higher the percentage of college bound graduates, the more prestigious and successful is the school and its faculty. Those...
...THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VOCATIONAL ASPECTS TO SCHOOLING IN AUSTRALIA. HOWEVER, IN RECENT TIMES THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASED EMPHASIS ON THIS ASPECT OF SCHOOLING WITHIN BOTH THE GENERAL CURRICULUM AND THOSE AREAS THAT HAVE A PARTICULAR VOCATIONAL FLAVOUR.
IN WHAT WAYS DOES THIS EMPHASIS PROVIDE A BROADER OR NARROWER CONCEPTION OF EDUCTION FOR SCHOOL STUDENTS?
YOUR RESPONSE NEEDS TO REFER TO: (I) THE AIMS OF THE NEW VOCATIONALISM' AND HOW IT IS CURRENTLY BEING MANIFESTED IN SECONDARY SCHOOLING; (II) HOW EQUALITY OF OUTCOMES FOR ALL SENIOR STUDENTS CAN BE MANAGED AT AT TIME OF HIGH STUDENT RETENTION IN THE POST-COMPULSORY YEARS AND (III) A CRITIQUE OF THE CURRENT VET IN SCHOOLS POLICY.
Aims and Origins of New Vocationalism
What is vocationaleducation? That depends on the period in history and whom you ask. There is probably no greater bone of contention or confusion among educators. Vocationaleducation or educating students to fulfil their vocation or calling in life is such a broad definition. Traditionally it has been seen as an education for those not taking up tertiary studies, for those who instead undertake hands on training before entering the world of work. If this then is the definition, entry to some of the most highly regarded professions, is through vocationaleducation. Take for example the doctor, teacher or the architect....

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.

...Reasons why Education is Important
Earlier people were recognized for their clothes, shoes, etiquette, background etc. But today the first impression of a person is inferred from his education. No matter if you do not belong to a royal family, you can always earn a name by educating yourself well. Education is one of the most important things you need to acquire in life. It decides where you stand in life. Education gets you many things in life which probably other things can’t. There are many reasons for which an individual is expected to be educated. Out of those many reasons we are listing here the top ten reasons why education is important:
10. Bragging rights
This is one of the ‘unmentioned’ reasons education is important. You can see everywhere; there must be someone in your family who keeps on bragging about his/her son/daughter’s high education and the name and fame they have got because of it. Education not only benefits you but your whole family as well. It gives your family bragging rights, they can brag about you in the extended family on your success. This reason is not mentioned everywhere but this is true and you know it well. So, education is also important to shut up the neighborhood ‘bragging aunt’.
