Tertiary education helps improving quality of life and access to a stable and solid career. Ladies and gentlemen, going to a university does have real concrete benefits. Besides giving you a better chance and getting jobs for which you are already qualified, a tertiary education will also give access to a broader range of jobs to which you did not have access before. If you graduate from a bigger and reputed university, you will have a better chance of finding a good job. According to statistics on average annual salary, individuals who attend college earn more than twice as much as high school graduates. Some studies have found that college graduates with a bachelor degree earn 80% more per year than those with high school degree. Not only has a university degree given you an edge in the job market but also if you graduate from a smaller community or technical college. Ladies and gentlemen, people get hired for jobs that are outside the scope of what they specialized in college simply because employers recognize the diligence and level of responsibility that is often present in them. Even if you succeed in educating yourself outside of the university system, employers will still consider you unqualified for many occupations. With a good salary and a stable job, it indirectly helps to improve the quality of life of an individual. Put it this way, if African people were educated on how to properly use condoms, would the AIDS level go down? Or if they were taught how to efficiently produce food, would the malnutrition go down? I’m sure all present here know the answer as much as I do. Furthermore, according to a research done by the UNESCO, those having tertiary education have better access to health care, better dietary and health practices, greater economic stability and security, less dependency on government assistance and more prestigious employment, and greater jobs as satisfaction. Having tertiary education can offer better opportunities and life chances...

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.

...INDIA'S GROWTH THROUGH ADVANCEMENT IN EDUCATION SECTOR
*Research scholar,sri Venkateshwara university,gajraula
**Supervisor, Maharaja agarsen college,Delhi university.
Education in India today is nothing like it was in Pre-Independence and Post-Independence Era. Education System in India today went through a lot of changes before it emerged in its present form. Presenteducation system in India is also guided by different objectives and goals as compared to earlier time. Present system of education in India, however is based around the policies of yesteryears. After independence, it was on 29th August 1947, that a Department of Education under the Ministry of Human Resource Development was set up. At that time the mission was the quantitative spread of education facilities. After, 1960’s the efforts were more focussed to provide qualitative education facilities. The present research focus on steps through which our indian education system had gone through. The basic moto of this research is to show that india has done serious efforts in education nd has shotremendous development but it is still lacking in comparison with developed nations. This study is an effort to suggest some measures for its improvement.

Schools in South Africa are a unique kind of organisation, with clearly defined goals and policies. Schools function through a hierarchical structure of authority whereby every aspect of the school needs to function accordingly. Schools are also, a dynamic and ever- changing system continually responding to influences both externally and internally. In order for schools to render an effective service of education certain structures need to be in place, and effective undertakings of various management functions need to be prioritised (Naidu, 2008:74). ‘Educational organisations, are human endeavours’ (Owens and Valensky, 2011: 84), and to deal with them effectively is to deal with human social systems. Management effectiveness in schools relates to competencies, skills and approaches. However, school management teams interventions which are aimed at improving their current...
1. What is the purpose of education? To transmit culture? To provide social and economic skills? To develop critical thinking skills? To reform society?
I think that the purpose of education is to get the children ready for real life, and provide them the learning skills, and abilities that they will need.
2. What are schools for? To teach skills and subjects? To encourage personal self-definition? To develop human intelligence? To create patriotic, economically productive citizens?
Schools’ purposes are major in every culture all around the world. In my eyes, schools are to educate the general public, young or old for survival in the next chapter in their life, a degree. They are taught the basic skills and subjects to maneuver on to college, or to start life. After the basics, they are taught more in depth skills and subjects. Schools aren’t good just for that. In schools children also gain life long friends, experiences and learn the social skills they need in life.
3. What should the curriculum contain? Basic skills and subjects? Experiences and projects? Inquiry processes? Critical dialogues?
The curriculum should contain all basic skills and subjects, math, reading, language, writing, science, and geography. Then on a second level, to test the knowledge, and for student’s to learn from other students, projects should come in. As for experiences, I think that students that can relate, should share their...
...Importance Of TertiaryEducation
For many individual students preparing to graduate from high school, wondering whether or not they should pursue a higher education at a university or other learning institute is an issue that weighs heavily on their minds. It is a very difficult decision that depends on many different factors, such as the individual’s personal goals. Some students choose to go straight from high school directly into the workforce after graduating. Other students choose to go into the military after graduating from high school. While these are all different options, recent research indicates that higher education is extremely valuable.
Recent research indicates that higher education is extremely valuable. For, individuals whom attended a university and obtained at least a four-year bachelor’s degree make more money on average than people who have never obtained a university degree according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. In a study conducted by the United States Bureau of Labor conducted in 2009, it was concluded that someone with a four-year bachelor’s degree makes on average $20,748 more per year than someone without the degree. In a report done by the United States Census Bureau published in the “Current Population Report” by ?Jennifer Cheeseman Day and? Eric C. Newburger, it is estimated that high school graduates earn on average $1.2 million throughout the...
...Factors to the Continuing Mismatch between TertiaryEducation Graduates
And Manpower Demand: An Action Program
To Rationalize Supply and Demand
Marivic T. Sanchez
The primary objective of this research was to rationalize supply and demand per program in response to the continuing mismatch in education and manpower demand. Specifically, it raised the following questions: 1) What are the curricular degree programs/disciplines offered by the different private and public colleges and universities in the Philippines?; 2) What are the curricular programs/disciplines commonly preferred by the students in the public and private colleges and universities in the Philippines?; 3) What is the rate of absorption among the graduates of this curricular program/discipline in occupation selected to their qualifications; and 4) Is the rate of absorption of these graduates significantly selected to their career qualifications or choices? The descriptive-documentary analysis method of research was utilized in this particular study. Descriptive research describes and interprets “what is”. It reveals conditions or relationships that exist or do not exist. In this study, the descriptive method was used to determine if the manpower demands match with the labor supply of the public and private tertiary institutions in the Philippines.

...Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, research, or simply through autodidacticism. Generally, it occurs through any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts.
Systems of schooling involve institutionalized teaching and learning in relation to a curriculum, which itself is established according to a predetermined purpose of the schools in the system. Schools systems were also based on people's religion giving them different curricula.

In formal education, a curriculum is the set of courses and their content offered at a school or university. As an idea, curriculum stems from the Latin word for race course, referring to the course of deeds and experiences through which children grow to become mature adults. A curriculum is prescriptive, and is based on a more general syllabus which merely specifies what topics must be understood and to what level to achieve a particular grade or standard.
An academic discipline is a branch of knowledge which is formally taught, either at the university–or via some other such method. Each discipline usually has several sub-disciplines or branches, and distinguishing...
... Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.
A right to education has been recognized by some governments. At the global level, Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
Etymologically, the word "education" is derived from the Latin ēducātiō from ēdūcō which is related to the homonym ēdūcō from ē- and ''dūcō .
