Should School Be Compulsory? I believe that, after year 6, school should NOT be compulsory. By the time you have completed your primary education, you have learned the basic skills needed to get through life.

It is not the government s decision whether or not you should have to attend high school. It should be the individual s ch

Philosophy of education Being a teacher is something that I've thought about my entire life. Wanting to be a teacher is a different story. It took me a few years before I realized that teaching is what I wanted to do. I never thought I could be an educator.

I believe that every child has the ability to learn, but it takes a good teacher to be able to bring this ability out. This is a role I would li

Bilingual Education: Is it helping or hurting? Bilingual education seems to be a rising topic that is currently up for debate. With the growing number of immigrants entering this country, the language barrier between individuals seems to be far greater when it comes to children in the classroom.

Intrinsically Motivated by Education Enhancing ones education can be rewarding, but for whom? I believe education is what you gain and learn from.

A university can make anyone a scholar, however, it is up to the individual to act and live up to their own standards of the characteristics.

Imagine being an immigrant from a country where the Spanish language is practically ubiquitous.

The advantage of growing up in modern times is that the majority of children are able to choose their path in life.

Some People say that the world has many opportunities, some say that you can’t get anywhere unless you are born to some certain class of people. Some even say that it is pure fate that brings you where you are going to be and what you get is what you get and you can’t do anything about it. I think that people decide their own fates and it doesn’t matter who was your parents or how much money you have. I think that your education is the most important thing that you can have

Education What is necessary to be educated is dependent solely on the society in which the individual is placed. In any society, basic survival skills- the ability to find shelter, obtain food, and clothe the body- are a must. It is the methods of going about it that differ from society to society.

People have very different reasons on why going to college and getting an education is important for them. Some people go to college because that is what is expected of them, and others go because they have nothing else better to do.

My parents have this perfect life for me pictured in their heads, and the first thing they see me doing is going to college
