Education for All.
Higher Education has left behind the image of an American college population featuring predominantly young men and women from affluent, well connected families. Being a college student myself at age 50, I notice the diversity in student demographics. College represents a new beginning for those who have been affected by the recent economical changes all over the country but mostly in California. The visibility of nontraditional students earning a degree while raising families is commonplace. The availability of financial aid, scholarships, and federal loan programs has opened collegiate doors for students of all income levels and cultural backgrounds. I had many reservations in regards to entering the education arena so many years after graduating high school. I had concerns that I would not be able to pass an entrance exam. In the article “College Entrance Examination Board” in the Encyclopedia of Education, Second Edition, The College Examination Board is the body that creates the nationally recognized college entrance exam referred to as the Scholastic Assessment Test or SAT which is taken by one million students annually and is required for admission by many four year colleges and universities (372). According to the “Assessment Requirements” article on the website, California Colleges, most California Community Colleges require a placement assessment test to accurately place students in appropriate classes based on each individual’s level of ability. After taking the placement test for Mt San Jacinto Community College, I was amazed at the simplicity of the test itself. However, my reading and comprehension is still college level and unsurprising to me since I have been out of school since 1979, the test showed that I would require some remedial math and grammar. Since becoming a student in a California college I have become aware of several things. According to the Postsecondary Education Commissions article “Admission and residency requirements” on the website California Postsecondary Education Commission, by law all California Community Colleges are required to admit any California resident who graduated from high school. In addition, community colleges may admit individuals who have not graduated but are over 18 years old and can benefit from the instruction offered. The Commission article further states California Community Colleges serve 1.6 million students every year and a California resident may attend any community college campus in the state. According to article “California High School Exit Examination,” on the website California Department of Education, in California all high school students must pass a test to earn a high school diploma, the test itself is called the CAHSEE. I further investigated this exam, and found another article referring to the CAHSEE called “Help with the California High School Exit Exam” on the website San Diego County Office of Education. In which the San Diego County Office of Education outlined the components of the CAHSEE exam. I was absolutely amazed. The test covers the curriculum of the courses I was placed in after taking the placement test at Mt San Jacinto Community College. I understand the placement of someone who has been out of school for over 30 years, but what I absolutely do not understand are the amount of students in the same classes as I am who are fresh out of high school. Something is definitely wrong. I have discovered that California Community Colleges are the melting pot for students that didn’t make it in high school and now are taking up space in the largest education system in the state. In fact, with the budget cuts in the State of California affecting class availability in the community colleges, obtaining the necessary classes for every student’s educational goal is challenging. I received an email from Enrollment Services at Mt. San Jacinto Community College, titled “Policy Changes Effective Summer 2012,” its content...

...BASIC EDUCATION SECTOR REFORM AGENDA
“Education for All”. This line is always we hear to those people who are professional; they give much more attentions when they are talking about this, especially in the Philippine Education it is encouraging to develop with aim of improving the quality of basic education. The Philippines is an educated nation where citizens are functionally literate. Functionally literacy is considered as the ability to communicate, to solve problem solving, to sustainably use resources, to develop oneself and to have a broad perspective about the world. The totality of community commits to attainment of basic education competencies for all.
Every community should mobilize all its social, political, cultural and economic resources and capabilities to support the universal attainment of basic education competencies in Filipino and English. Also, the cultural values can be a highly productive component of social capital, allowing communities and the whole country to efficiently restrain opportunism and resolve problems of collective action such as individual refusal to serve the public good.
The Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda (BESRA)is a package of policy reforms pursued by the Department of Education (DepEd) to improve the quality of Education in the Philippines and attain the...
...Is education a fundamental right found in our constitution? This question has been posed and debated for many years. In this case, the state of Euphoria is currently funding the local public K-12 schools by the local property taxes. Apple school district, a poor district in the state of Euphoria, receives 2,000 dollars per pupil less than other, wealthier, districts in the state. This difference in unequal funding is showed with the class selection that students can choose from. For example, Apple school district only has three advance placement classes while other, wealthier, districts have more than twenty advance placement classes. The lack of advance placement classes makes it difficult for students, in Apple school district to get into more selected colleges. I believe that education is an implied fundamental right found in our constitution, because without education you simply can not survive in our demanding society.
Education is the key to success in our society. A person can not survive without being properly educated. The more educated a person is the more open doors of countless opportunities. A person who does not receive a quality education can not have the same open doors. As you can tell, it can be very difficult for them to support themselves with the lack of jobs that they can choose based on their poor education. This is why; I believe a properly funded...

What are the benefits of education for all?
There is so many reasons and so many ways that education can benefit people all around the world. It is stated that schooling for 1 year can increase one person's income up to 10%, and that is only with 1 year of education!. Education makes people healthier by arming them with knowledge that they can use in their daily lives to protect themselves with, so that they can know how to clean and take care of themselves better. It also saves more children because educated mothers know how to take care of their children better since babies are fragile and very hard to take care of and will decrease the children mortality rate. Education also teaches people female rights that are often ignored in poorer parts of the world because they have a different view of women. With education women will know their own rights and stand up for themselves instead of doing nothing. Having education for all people around the world is very important because it is the tool to combat poverty. Education will surely decrease poverty all around the world if there was education for everyone, that is not just my opinion, there are so many facts that prove that education will help people in need....

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.
