Childhood Obesity Outline
The menace of childhood obesity within the U.S.A. And other developed countries necessitated by sedentary life, a high-fat diet and sugary drinks has reached disproportionate ratios and there is need to institute effective measures to ensure the problem is solved urgently.
We usually think of pandemics as very serious diseases that have the potential to hurt thousands if not millions of people through the disease; obesity is an example of a pandemic. Childhood obesity is a condition which excess body fat negatively affects a child's health. It is quite absurd that, a 21st Century pandemic like obesity is such widespread in developed world through a combination of sedentary life, a high-fat diet and sugary drinks. Through it, people get to be obese to the point of having serious negative effects on their health. Due to the effects that obesity has on children, it has been one of…… [Read More]

I. Main Point 1. Everything you do should be done exclusively on the behalf of authentic love for God -- otherwise nothing, even successfully performed, will ever matter.
A. An example can be observed in Micah's words: "He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8). This quotation shows the proper way to serve God, and it is impossible without the authentic love for Him.
B. The work of the auditor/accountant is based on serving the purposes of others. It is impossible to serve people in a proper way without love for human beings as God teaches us: "Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another" (Romans, 12:10). Still it is impossible to love others without authentic love for God…… [Read More]

SPEECH OUTLINE -- BANKING PESONNEL Management ISSUE
ecommended Solution -- Increase Compensation to Increase etention
Increasing compensation is the best solution.
Banking employees generally have a transactional perspective of their relationships with their employing organization and employers.
Transactional motivation is primarily a function of compensation satisfaction.
In transactional relationships between employees and employers, compensation level is the primary reason that employees accept employment offers, contemplate changing jobs, and entertain alternative options in that regard.
Cognitive dissonance allows better paid employees to maintain a more positive attitude toward their positions and increases their willingness to work hard.
Increasing compensation improves employee attitude and morale in two specific ways: by (1) enhancing their sense of being appreciated by their employer, and (2) making…… [Read More]
Oedipus Rex Outline
The story of Oedipus has surpassed the original play in that even people who have never seen or read Oedipus Rex know the basic elements of the story.
Tragic irony is what leads to the events that occur in the story of Oedipus Rex.
Sophocles's Oedipus Rex is about a young man who is so blinded by ambitions and desires that he winds up killing his father, marrying his mother and become both brother and father to his children.
By sending his son out into the world, Oedipus's father begins the series of events that leads to the bitter conclusion of the story, but this is only the first in a series of ironic moments which leads to tragedy.
The first example of irony occurs when the prophet Creon comes to tell Oedipus that the tragedies befalling the people of Thebes…… [Read More]

The survey methodology selected for the proposed project is highly congruent with a number of social researchers who recommend surveys for a wide range of applications (Neuman 2003). According to De Vaus (1996, p. 3), "A survey is not just a particular technique of collecting information. The distinguishing features of surveys are the form of the data and the method of analysis." The survey methodology is also consistent with the guidance provided by Grinnell and Unrau (2005, p. 272) that, "Surveys can be designed to achieve a variety of ends, but they all seek to collect data from many individuals in order to understand something about them as a whole."

The paragraph has several aspects which create strengths and weaknesses within its context. The opening lines do present a broad statement which draws the reader in. However, the paragraph opens with a statement which can be construed as a fallacy; no one truly knows if anything is "God-given." I also think the lengthy continuation of the types of choices we make is distracting, we get the point. Not so much fluff was needed to progress into the thesis, which has nothing to do with our choice of what flavor gum we chew. The phrase ad infinitum should also be in italics to denote the Latin origins. I also think the statement regarding choosing the right one is way too…… [Read More]
Outline how you would manage the risk of change when planning a strategic change management process.
Whenever any kind of change is taking place in an organization, there more than likely will be resistance to the new ideas that are being introduced. Part of the reason for this, is because these changes are often challenging the status quo. Where, everyone will face new standards and greater scrutiny over a number of activities. This will cause many people, to become concerned about what is occurring. At which point, they will begin to resist these changes, out fear of the unknown and the threat to the status quo. When introducing a new management system, this can be particularly challenging, as many executives will often engage in turf wars (over areas of influence) and finger pointing (in an effort to gain favor). (Stevens 2005, pp. 19 -- 27) In either case,…… [Read More]
Outlines for Essays, Research Papers, Term Papers, and More
Every good piece of writing starts with an outline. Whether you are aware of it or not, when you start writing your brain needs a direction to go in before you can even begin.
At the very least you need to know what you want to say: the topic of the essay, or the argument you wish to make.
For short essays or papers only one page in length, you may not need much of an outline. Yet you would still need to know who you are writing for and what you are writing about. Otherwise you could end up with a nonsensical piece of writing!
This article will provide for you examples of some outlines you can use for essays and term papers.

General James Mattis who is commonly known as, “Mad Dog,” spent 40 years on the front lines before retiring and being appointed as the new Secretary of Defense. During his years in service, Mattis led combat troops in different missions including the battle in Fallujah, Iraq. Given his experience and actions, General Mattis has become a prominent figure in the military, particularly in the debate on how the military should engage in irregular warfare such as one in which enemies deploy computer viruses or hide in mosques (Dickerson, 2010). Mattis’ ethical and moral compass can be gleaned from the infamous letter that he penned for American troops under his command as they were entering Iraq. In the inspirational piece, Mattis denounces Saddam’s oppressive tendencies against his own people. He tells his men not to hurt the innocent and strongly advises that apart from those who resist, all others ought to…… [Read More]
A matrix is developed in order to show the probability of an employee moving from one job to another or leaving the organization altogether. The underlying assumption is that the departure or movement of personnel among various job classifications can be predicted from past movements (Stone, 2009, p.69). Another tool that can be used is that of a trend analysis. A trend analysis is study of the organizations past employment needs over a period of years in order to predict the future. This is based on the theory that the future is an extrapolation from the past. This allows Human esource needs to be estimated by examining the events of the past (H Planning, n.d.).

Gradually, the essay begins to address Fitzgerald's specific mental problems. Fitzgerald makes clear that his sense of self-doubts and personal anxieties are of a long-standing nature. He discusses how his small stature in football made it impossible to realize his dreams of athletic glory. He also notes how his poor health and his lack of military service galled him because he never attained heroic stature in the eyes of the world. This sense of inadequacy permeates his life, and even after coming to terms with the limits of his body, Fitzgerald instead decided to embark upon a 'serious' literary career to prove his worth to the world.
Fitzgerald clearly continued to have a sense of doubt and foreboding about his fragile mental state. However, he attempted to quiet such doubts by repeatedly telling himself that: "Up to forty-nine it'll be all right." Even in this sense of morbidity about…… [Read More]

While it is true that jobs generated by 'clean up' needs can compensate for the loss of jobs, the Bureau's figures and the Social Security administration's figures still count workers held on payrolls. These workers are counted as employed, even if they cannot do their jobs, and may have relocated to another area of the country as a result of the storm -- and are likely to have their position terminated soon.
This is a tumultuous time for unemployment data, as Katrina's effects upon the economy are still uncertain, and have yet to 'play themselves out,' particularly given the massive relocation of human resources that occurred after the storm.

The letter of Paul to the Romans was written when Paul was exercising his capacity as an apostle to the gentiles and still defining what it meant to be a Christian. Although Paul was Jewish, he did not believe that non-Jewish Christians needed to keep Mosaic Law to be holy and follow Christ. In this passage, Paul emphasizes the importance of the spirit, not the flesh. He stresses that the spirit will guide the new community of Christians to know what to do, even as they face persecution. The flesh or physical actions are less important than the spirit: Paul's reference to the flesh also invokes the suffering and persecution that the Christians were undergoing at the hands…… [Read More]

, 2010). The model includes several mediator (e.g., knowledge exchange) and moderator variables (e.g., self-leadership competencies of actors) that explain why and when this approach is effective and looks at leadership in more of a comprehensive way than focusing on one individual. Such perspectives have suggested that when employees become involved in the decision making processes then this can strengthen leadership.
Transactional leadership is the leadership model that represents what most people view as the concept of management. Transactional leadership is defined by an exchange relationship between the managers and the employees that are all motivated by their own self-interests and meeting the expectations that are associated with their job description. Transactional leadership consists of monitoring, controlling, and motivating employees through economic incentives and other types of exchange incentives (Bass, 1985). Most of the motivation in this model stems from financial exchanges such as by either salaries, performance…… [Read More]
" Clearly, strengthening America's military is a unilateral objective that requires a focused military agenda.
The remaining six features that Kugler identifies from the National Security Strategy are inherently multilateral. Championing aspirations for human dignity, the first feature, is vague but likely refers to issues related to gender, class, and social struggles worldwide. esolving such struggles requires multilateral efforts. The second and third features, strengthening alliances to prevent and defeat global terrorism and working with others to defuse regional conflicts are explicitly cooperative in tone. Preventing enemies from threatening peace may require both multilateral and unilateral action, depending on the situation. Igniting a new era of global economic growth and expanding the circle of development both clearly require the cooperation of foreign markets, regional trade organizations, and the international private sector as well.

Nigeria has defined its policy by a 'concentric circle' model. The core is "the economic viability and full mobilization of the resources of the country [of Nigeria], in which the internal security forms the foundation for a realistic diplomacy" (Agreen 2010).When the core is taken care of, then Nigeria can take into consideration the economic viability of its people. "The second circle takes into consideration the strategic interest of the states in the West African sub-region. The third circle involves Nigeria's foreign policy involvement in the African continent" (Agreen 2010). However, one of the problems with such an approach is that it can be difficult to create a coherent national policy when Nigeria's personal interests clash with those of another African state's or when two states have competing interests and Nigeria must 'take sides.'

Briefly outline the five macroeconomic objectives governments generally seek to achieve
In each economy, the government always put forward some five macroeconomic objectives, which will help in keeping track of the economic growth. The five macroeconomic objectives are increase economic growth, control of inflation, reduction in unemployment, more equal distribution of income, protection of the environment.
Increase in economic growth
Increased economic growth acts as an agent for increased living standard which is always the aim of every government. The governments always seek in increasing the job creations to offer a source of income to the citizens. The government can only achieve this if it put forward strategies for increasing the economic growth. The increased economic growth has a direct relationship to the expansion of national production which acts as a prerequisite for economic development (Jonkhoff, 2011).

In the UAE, health care services are provided by government with the rapid expansion of hospitals and treatment options. This is a part of an effort to modernize the health care system and improve quality. However, the prices associated with receiving a variety of services have increased dramatically. Evidence of this can be seen in a study conducted by the UAE government. They found that for a woman to have a simple procedure (such as: delivering a baby) the costs are between: Dh 6,000 to Dh 25,000. (Haine, 2012)

A different interpretation of the empirical results achieved by Trampe et al.

This is not empirically proven in the research, however the ontology assumed by the authors is also not empirically founded.

The advancement in technology has given rise to numerous computer security threats. It has become quite difficult to identify people online because many people use the internet with fake identities. This has made it easy for people to conduct criminal activities online. Online security of computer systems should be combined with physical security to ensure that no unauthorized person gain access to the systems.

Ask yourself, do I need this? Do I have to do this?
Of course, no one can completely avoid stress in their life, and in fact, some forms of stress can be good. Lots of people like the positive, controlled stress of exercise or performing.

Southmead Integrated Community Hospital Project Proposal Outline for Procurement
Procurement Plan for Hospital Development
Work towards a lean strategy of development, where there is not an excess inventory and goods are procured as needed as much as possible.
This will increase the strategic sourcing, while avoiding transactional sourcing mistakes (Phillips, 2013).
Patient care can not be sacrificed (Pan American Health Organization, 2006).
It is crucial that all strategies for procurement think of the patients first. This will ultimately mean focusing on procurement for the departments first opening and then working on the ones that will be opening later in 2015.
Keep excellent records of data and spending
With new guidelines and regulations on hospital spending and procurement, it is crucial to keep pristine records for accounting and acceptance purposes (Department of Health, 2013).

One is the "most popular search terms" on the bottom of the home page, where the most popular search terms are largest. The communication style is in general…… [Read More]
S. This has partially continued during the 90s as well, so protectionist barriers is one of the things Nissan needs to consider when exporting to its main partners.
There are two different actions Nissan may consider in the future in this sense. The first one refers to the fact that Renault, an European company, still holds a significant part of Nissan shares, which may facilitate exports on the European market. On the other hand, trade barriers can generally be avoided by direct implementation in the respective country, a measure which Japanese companies, especially Toyota, have successfully applied in the U.S. during the 80s.

A. General Motor seems to be currently both the most important producer and the sales leader. However, this should come with several amendments. If we are referring to the market leader, there are several criteria worth mentioning. First of all, the number of cars…… [Read More]
P1S1: Clumsy; the word "alike" can easily be removed.
P1S3: Clumsy sentence again.
P2S1: the term "self-relationship" is not common; does this mean his relationship with himself?
P2: "Although it is desired that men coven the female, Norman possesses a sub-conscious yearning to have effeminate qualities rather than a want for the female as property." This sentence is terrible. For one, the word "covet" and not "coven" is intended. Second, "for want for the female as property" is not really what the writer is trying to say.
P2: "The primary ends for this need for femininity is the procurement of what Norman sees as emotional freedom." First, the grammar is wrong as "the primary ends…are," not "is." However, this is not good phrasing to begin with. The writer should say something like, "Norman wants emotional freedom and seeks it in a stereotypically feminine self-expression."
P1S4: Change to: "The current…… [Read More]
The Joint Commission outlines Patient Safety Goals for a number of different areas of health care service. One of those areas is behavioral health. The 2012 National Patient Safety Goals include the accurate identification of clients using name and date of birth. This is suggested "to make sure that each client gets the correct medicine and treatment," (NPSG.01.01.01). This Patient Safety Goal is important for increasing patient safety and outcomes. A mistaken identity can mean giving the wrong treatment at the wrong time to the wrong patient, which could be disastrous or deadly. Similarly, misidentification can lead to medication errors that can also be deadly. This Patient Safety Goal is important from an administrative standpoint, because it suggests that nurse practitioner and all healthcare workers be aware of intake procedures.
In addition to NPSG 01.01.01, the Joint Commission Patient Safety Goals for Behavioral Health includes the use of medicines…… [Read More]
Decision-Making Process in Business Environment
The activity of decision-making may be defined as mental processes leading to the choosing of one alternative out of many.
All decision-making processes generate an ultimate choice.
Decision-making output may be a chosen view or action.
Broadly, decision-making represents a process of choosing between numerous alternatives and making a commitment to adopting some particular option for the future (Masood).
The Nature of Decision-Making
Successful decision-making, realizing where one has made the wrong choice, and being quick to respond to one's errors, forms a major component of corporate efficiency.
According to some scholars, decision-making constitutes the most elementary and salient of all the responsibilities of a manager.
The activity of decision-making relates most closely to the activity of planning.
But it also forms part of leadership, organization, and control (icaksana).
Decision-making entails six steps:
a. Problem Identification
• Need for explicitly outlining the issue…… [Read More]
If one were to dedicate their lives to examining the concept of aesthetics, they would most probably feel sorry when looking back finding that they did not have the chance to actually enjoy what they were studying about. Certain people who actually knew how to enjoy beauty to its full potential motivated their feelings by claiming that they felt something divine. Such a statement is direct proof that these people did not want to concentrate on knowing what they felt, as they simply admitted that it was something heavenly. Relating to a divine concept means that every analytical theory is removed, given the fact that a person likes to believe in a godly being without standing to think about how that respective being looks like, or what kind of character he or she has. Surely, believers know that questioning the existence of the divine or simply trying to learn more…… [Read More]

Good design "today" is more random, and as such is unable to contribute to broader social goals; it only contributes to sales.
Bennett's article counters Ewen's by illustrating an example where design can be used to pursue broader social goals. She cites the case of AIDS posters in Kenya. For such posters to be effective, they must reflect the local society. This requires professional graphic design talent. From the project studied in the article Bennett shows how design can still have a positive function in society. It is not merely to sell product, but can be used to sell a message as well. The "then" design sold certain messages about the direction of society; this "now" design serves the same function. The AIDS posters therefore represent an evolution in the role of design, where modern selling principles are incorporated into historical socio-political messages to sell ideas, such as…… [Read More]
Aesthetic needs are met by creating a wholly bicycle-centric environment. It is aesthetically important for cycling geeks to be immersed in such as environment. Lastly, self-actualization needs are met in that the employees are encouraged to set their own course in their employment. The environment is such that the other needs of the employees are met to such a degree that they have the freedom to pursue the path of self-actualization within the context of the bicycle store.
2) Herzberg's Two Factor Theory suggests that job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction are independent of one another. He explains that job satisfaction arises from motivators, such as recognition and personal growth. Job dissatisfaction arises from a different set of factors, such as company policy, interpersonal relationships, and money.
At Wheelworks, several motivators are at work. The floor staff are motivated by the learning they experience at the educational seminars; the satisfaction they…… [Read More]
Revival of revoked wills. In most cases, a revoked will is not revivable unless it is reexecuted or revived by codicil; however, if a revoked will was destroyed, it cannot be revived in this fashion.
Dependent relative revocation. These are mistakes of law made by the testator concerning the disposition of property that can be disregarded in the administration of a will.
Components of a Will
Integration. This term refers to the collation of various sheets of paper into a cohesive whole which constitutes a single, entire will which is executed via a single act.
Incorporation by reference. A majority of states allow documents that were not integrated into the single, entire will to receive the same force and effect by referencing them in the will.
Facts of independent significance. This term refers to the description of intended beneficiaries or bequests in a will that…… [Read More]
While experiencing the thrill of victory can definitely be fun it certainly isn't everything, and it's not the point of Frisbee.
Competition might be completely avoidable in a game of Ultimate Frisbee, yet there are several physical skills and athletic elements in the sport, including throwing and especially running or some other form of full body movement that are required to engage in play. Even with the involvement of these skills, however, it is very possible to enjoy playing Frisbee at a low level of physical ability or exertion. The game can be played at a walking pace for example, or even by individuals in wheelchairs or with other ability issues, and it is easy to make all manner of accommodations for other physical disabilities or desired levels of exertion or relaxation. The game of Ultimate Frisbee can be played at a very intense level, involving as much running as…… [Read More]
Pragmatic Linguistic Awareness Motivation
Research Study Outline on Pragmalinguistic Awareness
A helpful one-line summary of the research study, indicating the topic area and including all the key concepts to be studied.
Takahashi tested eighty Japanese students with a noticing-the-gap activity after administering a motivation questionnaire and an L2 proficiency test, finding that pragmalinguistic awareness was correlated with motivation subscales, but not with proficiency.
Link to previous research: What the author (SATOMI TAKAHASHI) had done on this topic area and what he had found; unanswered questions that your research study plans to answer.
The role of attention in pragmalinguistics was introduced in Schmidt's Noticing Hypothesis, which claimed that learners have to notice L2 features in the input for subsequent development to occur in the L2. (Schmidt, 1990). Schmidt argues that noticing is central to SLA, and learners must first notice the surface structures of utterances inthe input to acquire virtually every…… [Read More]
Knowing the difference between normal emotions and emotional disorders is key to therapists' understanding bipolar behaviors
Excess emphasis is placed on pathological emotions rather than healthy ones
SEVEN: Recent developments in emotion and cognition & therapies (Lacewing, 2004).
Lacewing references 5 authors that discuss the development of emotional theories
It is clear there is nothing close to consensus when it comes to comparing emotion with cognition or defining exactly when an emotion results from cognition
EIGH: Cognitive processing in bipolar disorder (BD) using ICS model (Lomax, et al., 2009).
30 bipolar persons and 30 healthy persons were tested (in a euthymic mood state and also in induced positive mood state) to see if they detected discrepancies in the sentences; the results show BD people operate at a "more abstract level"

2004) outlines some of the cultural mistakes that have come up when taking franchises overseas. He highlights that it is important to understand the different aspects of a foreign culture, for example what things are offensive to that culture and what things are not. Offending locals is a great way to fail in an overseas venture. The example of Richard Nixon basically flipping the bird to the Brazilians is just one example, and ade makes the point that one such act of offense can sometimes scuttle an entire deal.
The Gibson article (2006) echoes these ideas. One example that was cited was Domino's attempted expansion into Italy. For some reason they thought Italians would like the product they pass off as pizza. This type of cultural arrogance, thinking that Domino's was even remotely comparable to proper Italian pizza, can lead companies to fail in foreign markets. It is necessary to…… [Read More]
Gillis and Broder (2012) outlines that global emissions of carbon dioxide were at a record high in 2011 and likely to achieve new highs again in 2012. The article is interesting because it points out how human societies have failed in their efforts to enforce the treaties that they put into place. hile there have been negotiations to curtail the growth in global warming, there has been little appetite at the governmental level to implement the measure that would bring about any change in the level of emissions.
Human activity has been the cause of significant global warming, and there are serious side effects on the environment that are destructive to human activity. However, our societies and politicians have hesitated to take action. The use of coal, a major greenhouse gas contributor, is increasing. hile human activity has caused significant damage to the environment, and this activity is mainly conducted…… [Read More]

Mental Health in the American Prison System
There has always been much controversy regarding prisoners and their mental health, but as civilization has experienced much progress throughout this century people have become more and more concerned about making sure that prisons are able to differentiate between individuals who are mentally ill and persons who are not. Even with the fact that prisons were never design to accommodate the mentally ill, conditions are critical today as a great deal of men and women who are unable to get mental health treatment in the communities they live in are incarcerated consequent to committing an illegality. There are a great deal of people suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression in U.S., thus meaning that society needs to…… [Read More]
Unions in America today
The document outlines the pros and cons of unions in America. It takes into consideration how unions improve the working environments for workers. The paper considers the power of unions on law makers, collective bargaining and other advantages. The cons include decline in competitive advantage for American companies, low productivity and motivation and many others.
In any organization, unions act as binding agreements between employees and management.

Unions originate from the period of American depression when workers faced various work challenges including low remuneration, and unfavorable working conditions. The purpose of this essay is to explore the pros and cons of unions in America in the current times.

The History of Crime and Punishment in the United States
A good balance between primary and secondary source evidence in a research paper can be achieved when it is clear that the information utilized from secondary sources is supported by data obtained from primary sources. In other words, the best balance is that which allows both primary and secondary source evidence to be integrated into the research paper in manner that allows the writer’s perspective to be fleshed out fully but at the same time fully supported by the evidence supplied by other researchers as well as by the evidence that is obtainable through examination of primary source documents.
A research paper writer will know when the right balance has been found when it evidence used to support the writer’s points contains information from both primary and secondary sources. There is no rule that one must rely more upon…… [Read More]
The author selects different ads to support his arguments about the different appeals. By cherry-picking from the familiar, the author invites the reader to agree, and avoids a situation where he writes over the reader's head, which could cause the reader's support for the arguments to wane.
Overall, Fowler is relatively successful. The article is not as concise as an argumentative essay should be, but in this case it is also meant as instructive. The author's tone detracts from the article, however, as it is too directly instructional. The other major flaw in the writing is that the author expends very little energy -- and only at the beginning -- presenting his case for the theoretical framework. This would have lent more credence to his case than name-dropping dozens of ads. The student reader is relatively sophisticated -- and Fowler knows this -- but the structure of the paper does…… [Read More]
They must understand the capital outlays required for health care and make plans to fund these outlays. Firms that budget for health care effectively are the ones that are spending on prevention and increasing co-pays, to ensure that outlays are reduced and inflows are increased.
Analysis: The rising cost of health care is a major concern for firms. They need to remain competitive, but increasing amounts of their budget are tied up in health care costs. The estimate of $29,000 per employee just on health care costs ten years from now has a profound impact on the budgeting process. Firms have several ways to address this issue. In the article it was discussed that firms seek to lower the cost of health care by reducing the need for it. Over the long run, a logical conclusion is that firms will make investments in technology or techniques that allow them to…… [Read More]
" While the editor of the Tribune must acknowledge the need to maintain peace and order in the city of Chicago, he or she fails to credit the labor movement with championing the rights of workers and for denouncing endemic inequality. Nevertheless, the Haymarket affair and the Tribune's response also reveals the weaknesses in the American labor movement: the fissures that led to its being stymied by corporate and government interests. Although the labor movement achieved significant goals, violent outbreaks during political protests and disorganized leadership led to chaotic incidents like Haymarket. The incident, and the Tribune's response to it, shows how the labor movement evolved and how the mainstream press used its power to sway the values and beliefs of the general public. This editorial marks the significance of the media in shaping the value systems of American voters regarding the rights of…… [Read More]
Even worse, in some cases, superior academic performance sometimes provides high-performing students with a sense of entitlement that outweighs what might be considered very basic concerns. Just as professional athletes often violate social and legal rules, superior students may lag behind in their moral reasoning skills because the positive feedback associated with their academic achievements excuses transgressions that poor students could not expect to get away with as easily. At the other end of the spectrum are students who pursue academic success precisely because they wish to overcompensate for other (i.e. non-academic) deficiencies.
However, Kohn might have phrased some of her criticisms in terms that are too absolute rather than in a flexible manner that recognizes her criticisms without overgeneralization. For one example, it may be true that contemporary education emphasizes career development too much while giving too little attention to equally important aspects of personal development in non-academic areas…… [Read More]
