"No, I want my child to study. I want him to get what I did not get in my childhood. I will give him education even if I have to pay a huge amount of money to the educational institutions" These are some lines which are said by the parents of this modern era. Every parent tries their level best to provide quality education to his ward and to fulfill their dreams they spend a lumpsum amount of money so that their ward is able to study in the best educational institution. Schools, coaching centers, educational institutions, etc., are prospering day by day. It seems as if they will give rise to a new industry named educational industry. They charge lumsum amount of money to provide education and the parents blindly spend such amount to educate their ward. But the question is--
ARE THESE INSTITUTIONS PROVIDING EDUCATION OR THEY ARE DOING BUSINESS IN THE NAME OF EDUCATION?? Education was something that was always driven by devotion and thought. Helped by their own volition, teachers were successful potters moulding men and women into the embodiment of an intangible divine force, of rectitude. Sadly though, the twin foundations of money and lust have penetrated the department of education as well, subverting it, leading to the establishment of a commercial education system that manufactures solipsists but doesn’t nurture altruists. While it is true that education must evolve as time passes but commercialisation of education is the worst thing that could ever have happened. Depressingly, we are not averse to the idea of commercialisation. India has become a dirt-pool where ‘educational’ institutions proliferate like mushrooms. And there is none to cleanup! Central to this issue is the changing equations of the role of the teacher. The most sacred and the most important job in the world is that of the teacher.A teacher, hidden in the shadow of the student, must guide him to move ahead and resurrect our broken society. From the time when education started its first...

The NegativeImpact of Bilingual Education
It is true that, fitting in and adapting to two different linguistic and cultural world can have lasting impacts on individuals, hence, Richard Rodriguez, in his book “Achievement of Desire”, addresses his struggles as a young boy, trying to adapt to a bilingual education and how that education alienated him from his uneducated Mexican parents. Additionally in the excerpts “How to Tame a Wild Tongue,” Gloria Anzaldua, while she mainly focuses on the language of “Mexican” people in different aspects, also mentions her strife as a bilingual student. Although these two stories are different in many ways but they both reflect the negativeimpact of living in the “borderlands”. To better understand those cultural conflicts, it is essential to know exactly what the borderlands consist of and who spans there, but most importantly what they represent in this context.
The concept of “ the borderlands” informs “a variety of disciplines at the start of the twenty-first century, with many studies focusing on the boundaries where two or more disparate conceptual, social, or political entities overlap productively”(Ybarra, 1-3). However, Anzaldua’s idea of the borderlands as an active place where people can form their own identity and political resistance remains the most influential...
...Commercialization of education
The Commercialization of education has been a fairly recent trend in India that stems from the educational reform in the country over the last two decades. It mainly materializes itself in mushrooming private schools, public and private universities and at the high education level. In a sense, it has added a financial element to the qualifications of attending private schools and public and private universities. Undoubtedly, it affects millions of families. As a result, it also changes the traditional concepts of education in Indian society, including the student-teacher relationship, education, and the attitude towards gaining knowledge. Education was something that was always driven by devotion and thought in the former days.
In commercialized learning, higher education degrees focus more on the job role they fulfill and less on the traditional academics, such as sciences and liberal arts. When schools become more expensive and completely profit oriented, knowledge-pursued and created-isn't available to the lower classes. Student loans and grants help fix this problem, however. As education becomes commercial, there's no denying the purpose of the higher education degree: for schools to make money. That's because schools are based on financial gain and while this grants a student with customer respect, it also...
This is perhaps the biggest threat related to your children's healthy mental life. A very serious issue concerning the Internet. There are thousands of pornographic sites on the Internet that can be easily found and can be a detrimental factor to letting children use the Internet.
Though, internet can also create havoc, destruction and its misuse can be very fatal, the advantages of it outweigh its disadvantages.
Some possible positives are:
- Staying in touch with loved ones
- Connecting with people all over the world
- Online bill payment
- Easy availability of information
Some possible negatives are:
- Children being exposed to ideas they are not ready for (porn, etc)
- Identity theft
- Online stalkers

The man-in-the-middle attack (often abbreviated MITM, MitM, MIM, MiM, also known as a bucket brigade attack, or sometimes Janus attack) in cryptography and computer security is a form of active eavesdropping in which the attacker makes independent connections with the victims and relays messages between them, making them believe that they are talking directly to each other over a private connection, when in fact the entire conversation is controlled by the attacker. The attacker must be able to intercept all messages going between the two victims and inject new ones, which is straightforward in many circumstances (for example, an attacker within reception range of an unencrypted Wi-Fi wireless access point, can insert himself as a man-in-the-middle).
A man-in-the-middle attack can succeed only when the attacker can impersonate each endpoint to the satisfaction of the other — it is an attack on mutual authentication (or lack thereof). Most cryptographic protocols include some form of endpoint authentication specifically to prevent MITM attacks. For example, SSL can authenticate one or both parties using a mutually trusted...
...Impact of EducationEducation is one of the most essential necessities of a personal life because without education, we would not have a brighter future. In two essays “Learning to Read and Write” and “A Homemade Education”, Malcolm and Douglass describe what they have gone through in order to become more successful in their pursuits in life. While Malcolm X lived part of his life in prison, he spent his time writing numerous definitions from a dictionary amongst the walls and tables. The elements of the dictionary motivated him to not only become a free man, but a well educated one at that. Douglass, who also taught himself, began his life in slavery. But after a series of attempts, he escapes from slavery and pursues into his educational life in order to find a way to free all slaves from this madness. People pursue in education with different purposes, but the main reasons are to have a better job, develop their knowledge of understanding and improving oneself to become a better person.
To begin, individuals pursue an education primarily because everybody dreams of having a successful career. To achieve these goals, they have to be adequately educated. In my childhood, I was raised with having high ambition to becoming a doctor to help people. My family shows great support for this career choice because it is considered a valuable job in receiving high pay. Recently,...

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...
...Make a comparative study amoung India, Pakistan and China based on democratic indicators, GDP, sectors and human development.
Ans:- The developmental strategies persuade by India and the two largest of its neighbouring economies – Pakistan and China will be compared on the basis of sum economic indicators. While comparing, it has to be remembered that apart from their similarities in their physical endowment there is little in common between the political power of India and its neighbouring countries.
If we compare the global population with every six persons living in this world, one is Indian and the majorities are Chinese. The population of Pakistan is very small and accounts for 1/10th of India and China. Though China is the largest nation amoung these three the density of population is lowest for this country as geographically it occupies the largest area. Apart from population density, fertility rate is also low is low in China and very high in Pakistan. Urbanisation is high in both Pakistan and China with India having 28% of its people living in urban areas for industrial production.
According to the growth of GDP, China has the 2nd position with $7.2 trillion whereas India’s GDP is $3.3 trillion and Pakistan’s GDP is roughly 10% less of India’s GDP.
According to the survey report of 2000-2003, agriculture contribute 15%of GDP in China whereas 23% of GDP in both India and Pakistan. In Pakistan about 49% of people work in agriculture, in China 54%...
...Wakamaru par. 3). With the ability to access the internet, complete household chores, and recognize a person’s face and voice, this 3.3 foot tall 60 pound robot is taking over an actual human being’s role in life (Linux Devices par. 1). In agreement to Bradbury’s idea, the new forms of technology, including the Wakamaru, are enabling humans to take on less responsibility and therefore, not think as much. Due to the continual expansion of technology, it seems as if real people carrying out day-to-day functions will be obsolete, and mechanisms will do all that is essential in order for the individual to survive. It will not be long until the only thing humans have to think about is how to charge their robot’s battery.
In the world of education, technology is helping society a great deal. However, in order to gain information, people have taken advantage of the instant results that the internet delivers. For instance, instead of researching through various books to find what one is seeking, that person can just type a few words on a search engine on the computer and a number of selections of the typed topic will be granted. But by taking this easy way out, one is losing the further knowledge that would be obtained by reading through different books in a library. According to Information Today Inc., more and more computers with online databases, books, and periodicals are being added to libraries all over the country (Computers in Libraries par. 2). As...
