Education, in its broadest sense, refers to the ways in which people learn skills and gain knowledge and understanding about the world, and about themselves. One useful scheme for discussing education is to divide these ways of learning into three types --- formal, informal and nonformal. Formal education is instruction given in school. It is often called schooling. In most countries, people enter a system of formal education during their early childhood. In this type of education, the people in charge of a school decide what to teach, and learners then study those things under the direction of teachers. Learners are expected to come to school regularly and on time., to work at about the same speed as their classmates, and to pass tests to show how well they have progressed. At the end of the year, successful learners move up to the next level, that is, to the next standard, form or grade. In the end, they may earn a diploma, a certificate, or degree as a mark of their success over the years. Informal education involves people learning while they go about their daily lives. For example, young children learn language simply by hearing others speak and by trying to speak themselves. In the same informal manner, they learn to dress themselves, eat with acceptable manner, ride a bicycle, make a telephone call, or operate a television set. Education is also informal when people try to find out information or to gain skills on their own initiative without a teacher. To do so, they may visit a book shop, library, or museum. They may watch a television show, look at a videotape, or listen to radio programme, or go into net. They do now have to pass tests. Nonformal education belongs somewhere between the formal and informal types. As in formal education, people using nonformal methods adopt planned and organized programmes. But nonformal education procedures are less tightly controlled than those of formal systems of schooling. For example, in countries whose population have included many people who could neither read nor write, a popular nonformal approach to literary has been the each-one-teach-one method. With this methods, educational leaders first prepare simple reading materials, then ask every individual who already can read to teach just one illiterate person to read the materials. After the illiterate has mastered the skill of simple reading, he or she must then teach one others illiterate person. By this nonformal approach, thousands of people have learned to read in such nations as China, Nicaragua, Mexico, Cuba and India.
Mostcountries spend a large amount of time and money to provide formal education for their citizens. At the end of the 1980’s, there were about 950 million students and 45 million teachers throughtout the world. This article deals with formal education as provided by school, colleges, universities, and other such institutions. Other organizations, such as the church, also provide formal education, for example at the seminaries or convents. The Scout and Guide movements provide a type of nonformal education. The school systems of all modern nations provide both general education and vocational education. Most countries also provide special education programmes for handicapped or gifted children. Adult education programmes are provided for people who wish to take up their education after leaving school. General education aims at producing intelligent, responsible, well-informed citizens. It is designed to transmit a common cultural heritage rather than to develop trained specialists. Almost all elementary education is general education. In every country, primary school pupils are taught skills they will use throughtout life, such a reading, writing, and arithmetic. They also receive instruction in a variety of subjects, including geography, history and science. In most industrial countries almost all young people continue their general education in secondary school. In most western...
...The Advantages of Career Training for Military Personnel
The people leaving military service, because of discharge or retirement, are at a disadvantage in the civilian career field. Skills learned while in the military are not always transferrable, or the person may not have access to the certification required by certain employers or professions. Even though it could cost the government extra money for schooling or other programs, career training is beneficial for everyone, by building confidence, raising employment levels, and decreasing the need for welfare assistance.
Career training benefits everyone in a community. Employers gain access to “trained, educated, experienced people like those that are separating from the [military]” (Fortner, 2012, pg. 4). This helps keep the unemployment rate down while increasing the availability of qualified applicants in various career fields. The serviceperson gains confidence in the abilities they bring to a civilian career, and in their ability to contribute to the local community and economy. The children of these same people also become better equipped to contribute to the community because they see the benefits that the parent has gained because of appropriate training.
When a retiree receives career training, an immediate and recognizable benefit is to the person. “Unemployment remains high for our Nation’s veterans” (Sowash, 2011, pg. 54), and...

...understand when studied on one’s own. Continued loss of classes results to loss of content and knowledge. Class assignments,exercises,homework and holiday homework would not be properly and correctly done leading to poor performance.
Community based factors are factors within the community that impede or enhance pupils’ academic performance. In analyzing the community based factors, the following aspects can be looked into:
a) Parents’ Consultation with Teachers:Good performance is realized when parents work in consultation with the teachers in order to understand their children better. Studies shows that most often parents do not consult teachers and that most parents were not so much concerned about education of the children.
Bogus (2004) indicated that parents’ interaction with teachers enables them to know what their children are encountering in school and what could be done to deal with the problems. It would also put pupils on alert and study in school as they would know that their parents would inquire about their performance.
Observations have been made to the effect that children whose parents interact frequently and consult teachers about their well-being at school perform well in both curriculum and co-curriculum activities.
b) Parental Response to Provision of Learning Materials:Bogus (2004) asserts that lack of basic school needs like learning materials could not provide a stable mind and conducive...

...THE NATIONAL SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM
The National Service Training Program was also known as “An Act Establishing the National Service Training Program (NSTP) for Tertiary Level Students, Amending for the Purpose Republic Act No. 7077 and Presidential Decree no. 1706, and for other Purposes” or Republic Act No. 9163. It was signed into law in January 23, 2002 amidst the various calls of dissenting sectors for its abolition or reform.
It invoked the constitutional provision regarding the “duty of the state to serve and protect its citizens,” specifically Article II (Declaration of Principles and State Policies), Section 2, which states that “The prime duty of the government is to serve and protect the people. The government may call upon the people to defend the state, and in fulfillment thereof, all citizens may be required under conditions provided by law, to render personal military or civil service” (italics supplied). This is the same principle that created and sustained the Reserve Officers Training Corps.
The primary objective of the NSTP law is to promote the role of the youth in nation-building. As such, it aims to encourage the youth to become civic and/or military leaders and volunteers whom could be called upon by the nation in cases their services are needed.
Compared with the ROTC which specializes in military training, and the E-ROTC which granted three options for students...
