...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 highereducation, 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...

It is generally believed that education refers a social work activity, which can be defined as the propagation and studies of various knowledge which are human civilization achievement, the skills and social experiences of life. In this essay, the purposes of education can be interpreted as the effect of politics, economics, and dominant ideology whereas dominant ideology can be defined as the most tightly held system of common values and beliefs that both bring forth and base on the social and economic organization at a specific period of time (Education lecture, Anderson, 2007). This essay will attempt to demonstrate that the purposes of education and dominant ideology are firmly linked, and how different ideologies affect the various purposes of education. In order to demonstrate this it will be shown that the different purposes of education are reflected the educationsystems of the UK and Taiwan and will also come to a comparison...

The Oxford Dictionary, defined politics as ‘the activities associated with the governance of a country or area, especially the debate between parties having power’. Therefore political systems are the processes involved in decision making and the governing of nations. The purpose of this essay is to discuss the political system of both the UK and Nigeria, what it entails and also critically discuss their similarities and differences.

This is regarded as the first statement of citizen rights in the world’ (Darlington, 2013). The first model of parliament was formed by King Edward the 1st in 1295. And in 1341the present day bi-cameral (House of Lords and Commons) style of parliament was formed,...
