FDI WILL REVITALIZE THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
Education, a panacea for the ailing living standard, an elixir to the indignant poverty condition, a question as well as an answer to the economic disparity and an instrument to measure the prosperity of a nation, is a matter of concern for India. Population explosion rate has always been way ahead of literacy rate. Moreover the unfit, obsolete, and rote learning provided by the existing institutions have aggravated the problem in the form of educated unemployment. There is a dire need of complete overhaul of education system. Government has certainly done its bit by creating schemes and allotting funds, however, the stark reality is it (government) does not have enough capital to build new universities but it certainly does have the power to revitalize the system by implementing niche policies best one of these would be allowing FDI in education.
Currently education is a non-profit entity in India which results in formation of bogus trusts creating a cauldron of black money and a safe haven for corrupt politicians. The learning imparted by these are way below the standards and the pass out graduates add themselves every year to the pool of educated unemployed. Estimates say that only 10 out of 100 graduates are employable. Recruiting companies have to invest heavily on the technical adaptability making them loss of time and expertise. Rather more convenient and less expensive way would be to give them the consummate learning at the institution itself. Ambanis and tatas are vying for opening industry specific varsities but the redundant government mandate prevents them from doing so. Bringing foreign universities too will help ease the burden. Cambridge, oxford deserves to be in our country too.
Indians have proved their mettle in academics provided with good education, however most of these achievements happen to be in foreign. India lacks basic infrastructure and expertise for research....
...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...

CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
Harare metropolitan province is under ministry of primary and secondary education which specialises in educating every child in Zimbabwe without considering race and or disability. The ministry is currently using a traditional way of enrolling form one pupils. This system is creating unnecessary increase in parent’s expenditure. Parents have to travel from one school to the other searching for form one places for their children.
Most of the schools even charge a non refundable 20dollars as entrance test fee per child. The ministry is now going through a phase of change from the above mentioned old system to the new system. The system will improve the current working conditions, increase efficiency and convenience and also lessen the tiresome of hoping from school to school in search for form one places. The new system will record all the boarding and day form one places for all schools in the Harare metropolitan province, name of the schools, fees to be paid, locality, subjects being offered, school facilities being offered, school structure and...

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...
Inclusion is the concept of putting children with disabilities in the general education class rooms instead of keeping them all by themselves. This concept brings the things children may need to them instead of isolating them with children with just disabilities. In classrooms with inclusion you have two teachers, one general education teacher and one special education teacher.
For some reason this is a controversial topic. On one side you have the parents who worry about how this system will effect their non-disabled children. “James Kauffman of the University of Virginia views inclusion as a policy driven by an unrealistic expectation that money will be saved. Furthermore, he argues that trying to force all students into the inclusion mold is just as coercive and discriminatory as trying to force all students into the mold of a special education class or residential institution.” (Special Education Inclusion) Then you have the other side of the argument that says that all children should have the opportunity to be in a general education classroom.
I agree with the second argument. I believe that all children should have the chance to be in a “normal” classroom. I understand that this will not work for all children. They tried mainstreaming my disabled sister when she was younger, but it did not work. Unlike inclusion, mainstreaming does not have a special...
...Advantages of Education
Human Capital – To build upon the previous point, when looked at from a macro perspective, an educated population provides a more valuable human capital base to the economy. A developed economy has maximum concentration of jobs in the tertiary sector which requires a highly skilled work force which has expertise in specific fields. For instance the most developed country in the world, the USA has the most skilled human resources with maximum efficiency. Also, developing countries which adopt tried and tested technologies from other nations require skilled engineers, technicians and managers who can put it to good use. This can only be achieved by providing quality education to the population at a primary, secondary and higher secondary level.
Broadens perspective - This is one of the key advantages of education. Even if we consider economic benefit of education but its most important contribution that it helps in changing minds of people. Education makes people understand other cultures, religions, places and culture. It helps gain understanding of what the world is all about. This very important if we see from perspective of developing nations which are plagued by old notions. In countries such as India girl and boy child are differentiated. Even worse women are considered cause of girl child while science tells that it is the other way round. Similar old style dogmas exists...
Its all depend on your character there is no advantages or disadvantages
I don't agree with some of my friends here, that there are disadvantages with co-education. It totally depends on the "INDIVIDUAL" how he/she takes the things and here "Attitude and Behavior" also plays very crucial role. If they have mutual understanding they can't go with wrong things right.
Co-education refers to a mixed schooling system, where boys and girls learn together under one single roof. A co-education school system mitigates any impartation and difference between girls and boys. They play, learn, read and write together without being discriminated by gender boundaries.
The concept of co-education was believed to be introduced by the great Greek philosopher, Plato, who believed in the concept of equality for girls. However, along with some obvious advantages, the co-education schooling systems have some disadvantages as well. The following are some of the advantages and disadvantages of co-education.
Advantages of Co-Education:
One of the most obvious and natural advantages of the co-educationsystem is that it promotes a healthy competition between boys and girls. There is always a natural tendency to compete with the opposite sex and to be held as the winner. Therefore, the...
Chinese educationsystem and the American educationsystem
The differences between the Chinese education and the American education are more obvious in people’s mind, not only to the international students, but also to the native students and some people who study on this. As more and more Chinese students come to America to have better education, we should think about why the American educationsystem is better and how could we change our system to have a new educationsystem in China. These differences have some deeply reason, like the American is the nation which loves freedom. It took long time to make such a big difference between the two educationsystems, and we need longer time to change it. An undeniable fact is that American high level educationsystem is great, it has more freedom, let students make their own choice by themselves, the grade is not everything, students don’t have to study just for the grade, and in American education, they emphasize use their own skill which they have learned to solve the problem, not only use the way which the teacher told you. In one word, the educationsystem in American is more open and useful for the student.

...The Korean EducationSystem: Comparison with the Jewish EducationSystem
20151685 Park You Sun
Introduction : Comparing the South Korean Education and the Jewish Education
South Korean system of education is heavily based on methods of memorization and indoctrination. While one cannot conclude that this is a wrong method of teaching, by comparing the South Koreaneducationsystem with the Jewish educationsystem, which is heavily based on the spirit of Chutzpah, using methods of discussion and debate, this paper will point out the flaws of the South Korean educationsystem and possible solutions to improve the system of education and the style of teaching in South Korea.
The Jewish educationsystem is famous for producing a number of Nobel laureates and successful entrepreneurs in various fields. On the other hand, the South Korean education has yet to produce a Nobel laureate in the fields other than Peace. This difference in success, as well as the completely different methods of education, is why Israeli educationsystem would make a good contrast with the South Korean educationsystem.
Reason for emphasis on education in...
