...6. QuestionnairesQuestionnaires or social surveys are a method used to collect standardised data from large numbers of people -i.e. the same information is collected in the same way. They are used to collect data in a statistical form.
In Data Collection in Context (1981), Ackroyd and Hughes identify three types of survey:
1. Factual surveys: used to collect descriptive information, i.e. the government census
2. Attitude surveys - i.e. an opinion poll - rather than attempting to gather descriptive information, an attitude survey will attempt to collect and measure people's attitudes and opinions, i.e. 4 out of 5 people believe...
3. Explanatory survey - goes beyond the collection of data and aims to test theories and hypotheses and / or to produce new theory.
Researchers usually use questionnaires or surveys in order that they can make generalisations, therefore, the surveys are usually based on carefully selected samples.
Questionnaires consist of the same set of questions that are asked in the same order and in the same way in order that the same information can be gathered.
Questionnaires can be:
1. Filled in by the participant
2. Asked in a structured and formal way by an interviewer
1. Interviewer bias must be considered when done in this way, however, an advantage of this method over a participant filling in a questionnaire is that the interviewer may assist if there...
...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...
..."He who opens a school door, closes a prison." ~ Victor Hugo
The first time we are introduced to formal education is in school. The school years are the grounding years of one's education. Schools are institutions that lay the foundation of a child's development. They play a key role in developing children into responsible citizens and good human beings. It's a school where young talent is recognized and nurtured. On leaving school, we are all set to soar high in life, and enter the real world in pursuit of our dreams.
Education provides us with knowledge about the world. It paves the way for a good career. It helps build character. It leads to enlightenment. It lays the foundation of a stronger nation. Education makes a man complete. Kautilya, an Indian philosopher, royal adviser, and professor of economics and political science very rightly underlined the importance of education, some 2000 years ago. He has highlighted the fact that education enriches people's understanding of themselves. He has said that education is an investment in human capital, and it can have a great impact on a nation's growth and development.
So, Why is Education Important?
It Gives Knowledge
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin
A direct effect of education is knowledge gain. Education gives us knowledge of...
...n physics, measure of the turning effect, or torque, produced by a force acting on a body. It is equal to the product of the force and the perpendicular distance from its line of action to the point, or pivot, about which the body will turn. The turning force around the pivot is called the moment. Its unit is the newton metre.
The moment of a force can be worked out using the formula: moment = force applied × perpendicular distance from the pivot. If the magnitude of the force is F newtons and the perpendicular distance is d metres then:
moment = Fd
It is easier to undo a bolt using a long spanner than a short spanner. This is because more turning force is produced at the bolt (pivot) with less effort. A long spanner is an example of a force multiplier.
In a simple balanced see-saw, the forces acting on the left- and right-hand sides of the pivot are the same. This is known as balancing moments. Moving the load at one end will cause the see-saw to become unbalanced. To regain balance, the load on the opposite side must either be increased or its position changed. This is known as the principle of moments.
The application of balancing a moment of force (or a turning force) is used by a rope walker. By holding the pole in the middle the rope walker is balancing the turning force on either side of the rope. As the rope walker moves a leg, the turning force on one side is greater and becomes unbalanced. To regain the balance, the pole is shifted to balance the...
Rich’s idea of “claiming an education” also applies within our pursuit to defining an educated person. Rich explains that a student should not think about education as “receiving it”, but to be thought of as “claiming it” (Rich 1979 pp. 365). Rich explains that claiming an education is taking as if one were the owner. I agree with Rich, students should have the mentality of taking the education being given to them. There is a difference between claiming what is rightfully yours, and taking what if rightfully yours. One difference is that when you claim something, you are putting in effort to learning what is being taught. For example, a student that goes to class and learns whatever the lesson was for that day, would in my terms be called receiving. On the other hand, if that same student were to go to the instructor’s office hours and basically use the resources that there are around campus, that would be claiming. The mere difference of going one step above the other makes the difference between the two. Rich also backs this idea of claiming, with the simple act of participating in class, becoming more engaged in class and the teacher’s professional life. This idea of claiming an education is not limited to those in school, because not every educated person goes to college, or needs a college degree. It is helpful in order to have something to fall back upon. One way we can connect...
...Education and Transformation Essay
Transformative learning is the process of “using a prior interpretation to construe a new or revised interpretation of the meaning of one’s experience in order to guide future action" (Mezirow, 2003). It is also a process where “an education that is transformative redirects and reenergizes those who pause to reflect on what their lives have been and take on new purposes and perspectives” (Will McWhinney et al., 2003). Jack Mezirow’s central idea is the process “to make meaning from our experiences through reflection, critical reflection and critical self-reflection “ (Dirkx et al.,2006), Mezirow named this process perspective transformation. According to John M. Dirkx (2006) transformative learning is emotionally driven and focuses more on a deeper learning, his view suggests a more “integrated and holistic understanding of subjectivity, one that reflects the intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual dimensions of our being in the world” (Dirkx et al.,2006). Transformative learning is a process most individuals have experienced once in their lifetime and it is a process that I can closely relate to. My personal experience of transformative learning is closely relevant to John M Dirkx emotional approach to the process and Mezirow’s Subjective Reframing (self-reflective) (Dirkx et al.,2006).To demonstrate my personal transformative learning experience, I have included my story in this essay....
