Luck or Education?
From the time we are old enough to remember all through elementary school, middle school, and high school, we have been told we won’t amount to anything without an education. Many people today did become successful in life because of their education, but many of them were just lucky. One great example is Bill Gates, at one point he was the richest man in the world. He dropped out of Harvard and still managed to become this multi billionaire.
My parents, teachers, and adult acquaintances always told me growing up, do good and school and get a good education so you can amount to something. I believed that until I got my first job. My first job, part time at 16 was in a warehouse. The work was simple and repetitive, but I got paid well. My starting pay was $10.50 an hour and after one year I was at 11.04. One day I was talking to my math teacher about my job. I told him about how much I got paid and how glad I was to have the job. My math teacher told me he started at the same wages I did. My math teacher was in his mid twenties. So he went to college I’m guessing for 8 years, only to get paid the same as a 16 year old part time warehouse worker.
With a degree you are almost guaranteed a good life, provided there isn’t a surplus of people with the same degree. I believe success in life is all luck. Even if you do receive a master’s degree, you are lucky that you were able to pay for that degree either from scholarships parents or loans, others aren’t as fortunate. So even if it isn’t from winning the lottery it’s still luck.
Most of the wealthy are wealthy from luck. Just luck of the draw some businesses bomb others bloom and it isn’t necessarily because one product is better. One example is the Sega dream cast; it was a video game system released slightly before the Play Station 2 GameCube and Xbox (last generation videogame consoles). It was far superior then all 3 of these yet it never got popular, and Sega took a big blow from it.

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...

History of Special Education
Home > Library > History, Politics & Society > Education Encyclopedia
Special education, as its name suggests, is a specialized branch of education. Claiming lineage to such persons as Jean-Marc-Gaspard Itard (1775 - 1838), the physician who "tamed" the "wild boy of Aveyron," and Anne Sullivan Macy (1866 - 1936), the teacher who "worked miracles" with Helen Keller, special educators teach those students who have physical, cognitive, language, learning, sensory, and/or emotional abilities that deviate from those of the general population. Special educators provide instruction specifically tailored to meet individualized needs, making education available to students who otherwise would have limited access to education. In 2001, special education in the United States was serving over five million students.
Although federally mandated special education is relatively new in the United States, students with disabilities have been present in every era and in every society. Historical records have consistently...
Out of school youth are the vulnerable population with a complex needs. Many employments prospects and uncertain futures. Out of school youth are broadly define as youth ages 16-21 who are not in school and who are unemployed, underemployed or lack in basic skills, while there is no single system that provides services to out of school youth. Many system can play role in better addressing human services, including public education, juvenile justice, community and faith sectors.
Multiple funding services can support initiatives to serve out-of-school youth. Service to the people is the basic foundation of the government. Section 4 Article II of the Philippines Constitution states that “The prime duty of the government is to serve and protect the people”.

...the students are motivated to learn, develop better, think creatively and have originality in thought.
Foundation areas are core areas in the growth and development of a school librarian, which allows the new role of the teacher librarian to develop a learning community to motivate students to learn. The main goal of the foundation areas are to develop creative, critical and original thinkers who will be able to better understand the school curriculum thereby achieving academic excellence which is the main philosophy of the education system. The library is often seen as the storehouse of knowledge in the school. Foundations in Education touch on four key areas each of which provides insightful information into the society, the individuals and their interactions with each other. The four main areas in Foundations in Education are psychology, sociology, philosophy and language. We will look at each in turn to see the benefits of Foundations in Education to create a learning community. The librarian has a difficult role in the school community as they are the ones to ensure that the current, relevant and insightful information is available on a wide range of topics that will assist students in the completion of the school curriculum ensuring that they acquire information to develop each individual full potential. In addition they are geared towards achieving the school’s motto for students to pursue excellence....
