The Rights of Immigrants to have an Education
Since the founding of the United States, more than 55 million immigrants from every continent have settled here. Every wave of immigration has faced fear and hostility from both ordinary citizens and government especially during times of economic hardship, political turmoil or war. Coming to the United States, Immigrants do not receive the same amount of rights that actual citizens do. One of the many things immigrants lack in the United States is the right to an education. Today immigrants face a great amount of troubles. These troubles are very similar to the ones the Jews faced during the Holocaust. These troubles have definitely gone against the catholic social teachings that are in todays society.
In todays society there are major Principles of Catholic Social Teaching. “The Church's social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society” describes how important these principles are (usccb.org). Some of these include; dignity of a human person, Community and the common good, and Rights and responsibilities. Dignity of a human person is described when people are sacred, made in the image and likeness of God. People do not lose dignity because of disability, poverty, age, lack of success, or race. The emphasis is on people over things, being over having. Community and the common good is when the human person is both sacred and social. We realize our dignity and rights in relationship with others, in community. As Saint Paul said, "We are one body: when one suffers, we all suffer." We are called to respect all of God's gifts of creation, to be good stewards of the earth and each other. Rights and responsibilities have to do with people having a fundamental right to life, food, shelter, health care,education, and employment. All people have a right to participate in the decisions that affect their lives. Like...
...The Right to Education – A Global Perspective
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
This saying of Nelson Mandela reveals a lot about the importance of education as a mean of achieving the changes we want to see in the world. Realizing the importance of education is highly significant for the nation and the world as a whole; however, giving equaleducation opportunities to people within specific countries and around the world remains a challenge for the global society. In order to overcome, or at least ease, such challenges, the right to education has been a subject of matter of international law, as well as state constitutions. While a great number of countries have been signatories and ratifiers of international conventions that protect the right to education, many countries have failed to provide the essential capacities to assure this right for various reasons. The failure to protect this right, no matter the reasons, has been quite harsh for the most vulnerable groups of different societies; hence, leaving millions of people worldwide without the capacity to contribute to a better world. As such, this paper will firstly focus on the protection of this right by international law, and it will later...
...A Child’s right to an Education
As a child, you are entitled to the right to finger paint, run around the playground, to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and the right to an education. You are entitled to the right to be able to flourish socially and academically in a safe environment. You deserve to be given the opportunity to develop an identity, and to think freely for yourself as you grow into an adult. Every child should be given the possibility to get educated, eventually breaking the hazardous cycle of poverty. However, due to violence, discrimination, poverty, culture, militia, and cost, not every child is given this chance. Through organizations like Unicef And HREA, documents and treaties have been created in order to protect the civil rights of these children, and to hopefully provide them with the schooling they are worthy of.
All over the world, children as young as eight years old are denied a childhood and subjected into their countries armed forces. An estimated 200,000 to 300,000 children serve in their countries armed conflict as spies, messengers, lookouts, and some even participate on the front lines or in suicide missions. Not only is this illegal because the child is not of age, but because it is infringing upon the child’s right to attend school. Unfortunately, this is not the only militia interference that...

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.

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...
...Immigrant Born Children Deserve Rights
In the United States today someone can become a citizen through the process of being born to parents with American citizenship or simply being born on U.S. soil. These two processes stem from the ideals of jus soli and jus sanguinis, each latin for right of soil and right of blood, respectively. But children born to unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. comprise a different category. An estimated 340,000 or 8% of the 4.3 million babies born in the United States in 2008 were children to illegal aliens (Passel and Taylor 1). Being born on US soil the notion of jus soli applies, automatically making the children U.S. citizens, despite their parents’ illegality. Some feel that these children are undeserving of their citizenship, and should be stripped of their rights as citizens and deported with their parents. This is an unjust belief that causes developmental harm to children and strips them of their rights as American citizens.
In 1868 following the Civil War the 14th amendment to the constitution was ratified. The amendment states,
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State...
