Ms. Michelle Draper
I would like to express my sincere thanks to my faculty, Ms. Michelle Draper for her help and constant encouragement throughout the course of this research. I would also like to thank those who helped me with this project by providing suggestions and completing my survey. Finally, I most gratefully acknowledge my parents and my friends for all their support throughout the period of this research.
This research is about the necessity of parental education in Bangladesh. It is a topic that isn’t widely discussed among the citizen on Bangladesh, but it is well known in developed countries. A survey was done on this topic to find out peoples’ perception of parental education in Bangladesh. Upon analysis it was seen that yes there is a need of PE in Bangladesh and that people are willing to accept PE had there been more awareness. Majority of the people also said that government of Bangladesh should try and create PE awareness. Parental education is seen to improve family conditions, reduce family problems and improve bonding between child and parent. Respondent to my survey also agrees that PE can reduce childhood trauma, create awareness among parents and also improve family problems. Secondary data also suggested that Bangladesh should come up with PE programs. Organisations like UNICEF introduced Early Child Development programs in Bangladesh to help parents understand their parental responsibility for the welfare of their child (United Nation Children’s fund, 2007, August, V. Family Environment and Alternative care [5.3])

Parental education refers to the rights and privileges which underpin the relationship between a child and either of the child's parents or those adults who have a significant role in the child's life. These days, we’re bombarded with mixed messages about how to parent “the right way.” It’s easy to buy into advice from the media, relatives, and other parents and start to worry that we’re doing something wrong. “Being” a parent is much more than “becoming” one. Parenthood is a journey, not just a destination. Children are not puppets and parents are not puppeteers. There is just no logical way that one can control every move one’s child makes or everything their child says, especially outside of their home. Children have their own free will and will act on their own accord—and often in self-interest. The idea of parental education program is to create the awareness among parents about their rights and limitations. It’s more like a guideline to develop a better and healthier relationship. Maybe we don’t have the full access to our children, but we can influence them by the limits we set and the consequences we give. As John Lehman says, “You can lead a horse to water, and you can’t make them drink—but you can make them thirsty. Samuelson, A. (2010). A researcher explains us that by following the best practices in parent education programs, they could strengthen parenting and enhance the well- being of children. She says a well designed parental education program that are implemented by caring and knowledgeable staff can have a positive short and long term impacts on the quality of a parent-child relationships and also children’s development.
Parental education is the idea of creating awareness among the parents about their parental rights and boundaries. Parental education is a very common topic in lot of advanced countries in the world. Sadly in Bangladesh, although it is known by a lot of people, yet has not been applied by the government....

The importance of parental involvement as an accelerating and motivating factor in their children’s education is a worldwide-accepted fact. This research project provides an in depth explanation along with specific reasons, the importance of parents’ involvement in their children’s education. It also discusses the parenting techniques, their types and their consequences if neglected. It also describes the ways to measure the outcome of the positive parental involvement. Furthermore, it mentions the teachers involvement and the difficulties faced by the teachers in getting parents involved in their children’s (this is further supported by the examples of two teachers who with their deliberate efforts won the parents over to devote their maximum attention towards their children), single-parent involvement, children’s own efforts to improve their academic levels and joint home-school based interventions....
...Education in Bangladesh is basically state financed. However, government depend heavily on external aid for financing the educational sector. Government allocate fund for the education sector out of its revenue expenditure & development expenditure. Revenue expenditure on educational sector has gradually increased over the year but development expenditure fluctuated.
Revenue expenditure on primary and secondary education also constitute major portion of revenue expenditure and it was consistent over year. Development expenditure on primary and secondary education also constitute major portion of development expenditure however it was not consistent over year. Expenditure on technical and higher education is not significant. Development expenditure on primary education are spent largely on building infrastructure whereas revenue expenditure are spent on teacher’s salary, grants stipend, etc.
Significant improvement has been achieved in terms of access to the primary education system. This has been possible because of several reason as example rapid growth in primary institution introduction of “Food for education” stipend for poor etc. there has been also significant improvement achieved in no of enrollment in primary education. But there is lack in quality education. According to survey percentage of student...
...Education prevents Bangladesh’s Economy
Education is one of the key elements that prevent Bangladesh from becoming a more economically developed country. Lack of education limits the people in Bangladesh, which leads to limiting Bangladesh’s economical development. There are various factors why education leads to Bangladesh economical issue.
East Pakistan gained independence from West Pakistan and Bangladesh was formed in 1971 (State Gov). From 1971 to 1991 there were various military coups and dictators who came to power (State Gov). In 1991 Bangladesh Nationalist Party came in to power and the Parliamentary democracy system was adopted (State Gov). Various ministries were formed for different sectors (Ison); the Ministry of Education was formed to look into the issues related to education and to resolve issues related to education. Most of the primary schools are privately owned in Bangladesh (Ison), so they do not really favor the poor. If they were run buy the government, it would favor the poor because they would have to play less tuitions. The Ministry of Education mainly looks at the development of post-primary education, secondary school, high school, and college. In rural areas in Bangladesh, females often do not attend school for too...

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.

...Parental Involvement in Education
Clay P. Bedford once said, “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.” It’s the 21th century and we have achieved the peaked of the brilliancy of the human race and everything is manipulated with a click of the mouse, with the aid of computer technology we can achieve a faster way of learning. However, the urgency, dedication, and quality of learning of children 20 years ago are quite different from the children of this generation. A change in the attitude towards education – a move to the life-long paradigm is currently taking place globally. The fundamental aim of building a better system of education defined the type of society built. Currently, substantial changes have taken place in the context of teaching as well as the system of education and organization of academic work. The success of our community depends upon the pace and extends of building a knowledge-based society with the realms of our school.
But, “The quality of education in the U.S. today declined at a tremendous rate.” (Houig 4-10). Have we as parents contributed to the decline of our children’s learning? Could this be the psychological effect of a dysfunctional family; the types of environment our children are growing; are the children themselves don’t have the urge...
...and not the parents?”
It is a well understood and researched fact that when parents involve themselves in their children’s education, the learning positively of the children relates to higher achievements. So, the more intensively parents are involved in their children’s learning, the more beneficial are the achievements and their effects with a long-lasting impact.
There are strong indications that the most effective forms of parental involvement are those which engage parents in working directly with their children on learning activities. Programmes which directly involve parents with their children like helping them with their reading, writing, homework, etc., while tutoring them using materials and instructions provided by the teachers, show particularly impressive results.
Likewise, any activity which provides parents the opportunity to take part in decision making about school programmes is also a form of involvement. This may include being a school board member, a participant on a parent advisory committee or a local school improvement council, or an active member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Areas/programmes in which parents can help to make decisions include goal setting, development and implementation of programme activities, assessment, personnel decisions and fund allocations, etc.
However, the area of parental involvement in daily educational activities has been one of the most controversial...
