School education should go above and beyond its general tendencies to attempt to produce good grades. A proper school should contain fine educators, ones who find that nurturing and nourishing the students are the top priority. While this may be different from climbing the higher statistics -- an inevitable goal due to the sole purpose of budgets -- one can still argue that the statistics will follow if the basis has been set for a better standard to begin with. Why not put "better passing rates" and "higher grades" as a secondary mission, and "proper education" a top priority?
To be able to define a "school education," one must look at the separate definitions of "school" and "education" as well as "teacher" and "educator." A good school might not necessarily mean a great education, and a good teacher does not make a great educator; the same can be said for the….
In fact, the No Child Left Behind Act, and other standardized test-based programs are "increasing incentives for school administrators to allow [poorly performing] students to quietly exit the school system ("Negative Implications," 2008). Being a high school drop out in today's society is not easy for these students, many of whom may already be disadvantaged in a variety of means. When they are simply allowed and encouraged to drop out of school because of a teacher or administrator's desire to look better, the students enter a perpetual cycle of hopelessness where their lack of preparation during the crucial public school years will most likely keep them from succeeding as they continue to move through life.
In addition to the consequences of the No Child Left Behind Act's use of high-stakes-based tests, teachers and school culture play a large role in leaving some students abandoned by the public education system. While….
Innovative Practices in Public School Education and Administration
America has been one of the leading countries of prospects for disenfranchised individuals and, simultaneously, a country of the utmost economic stratification amid the comfort of the wealthiest and the miserable conditions of the poorest. However, the American public schools have been victim to a number of diseases that need to be rectified. A lot of educators in classrooms of the public schools feel that they have become pawns in the reformers' and policy makers' misinformation game that maintains that there is a single best way to modify the system of American schools. This paper highlights the key problems faced by the public school administration and teachers and presents innovative ideas to improve the present standards of the public schools.
The state of affairs in American Public schools is gloomy. Since preceding federal-education laws have had merely a momentary effect on what is instructed….

Public school education in 1850 enabled the spread of learning writing, reading and arithmetic for a population that had previously been skilled and semiskilled workers. History at one point in educational history became a required course to help encourage ideas such as patriotism (Henretta). Among the other subjects emphasized during the 1800's were likely topics such as loyalty oaths and obedience in an effort to discipline children enrolled in public schools and increase American feelings of democracy and freedom. Of relevance to our studies are the population demographics of public schools during 1850. A pattern is very apparent related to the number of students actually enrolled in public schools during this time compared with total population. his pattern is reflective of the geographical and social setting of the states during 1850.
Massachusetts, Maine, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York had the highest percentage of pupils enrolled in public schools during 1850 (Census,….
The Henretta text often refers to this time in American history as somewhat romanticized. Many writers became well-known, their stories a means for citizens to escape a mundane life. The expanding country was becoming slowly more urbanized and industrialized, but it was evidently a pattern that was occurring from the top down, and from east to west. The southern states would slowly catch up to the New England States, as would the West slowly become as populous and crowded as the East Coast. But during 1850 at least, the gap existed between a more urban setting and the still more rural south, which likely acted as the largest contributor to the population demographics of public schools during 1850. Likewise, the population of students enrolled in public schools would increase in the west as America expanded and spread its wings.

No Child Left Behind
The educational philosophy inherent in the No Child Left Behind program is a combination of the philosophy of Adler and of Holt, even though both are opposing. Adler's educational philosophy hold that public schools should serve the democratic ideal by implementing a uniform curriculum for all children, and this is evident in the No Child Left Behind standards adopted by public schools. At the same time, the philosophy of Holt is evident in the idea that each child is an individual and deserves special attention if struggling to ensure that the child's needs are being met and that a unique and individualized approach is taken for at risk students (Koonce, 2016, p. 23). Thus, No Child Left Behind takes both philosophies and attempts to make them work together as a single philosophical unit.
My stance on the issue is that No Child Left Behind does not work very….

Schools in the 21st century are very different from the one-room schoolhouses that once dotted the American landscape. Today a single school can house thousands of students at various grade levels and many schools integrate the latest technologies into their curriculums. With this being understood, it will be interesting to see how school curriculum will change in the future. The purpose of this discussion is to examine how schools will change in the future as it pertains to technology. The discussion will also focus on the introduction of schools as social anchors, that are both moral and purposeful.
Schools of the future
Indeed technology will continue to play a large role in schools of the future. Educators will continue to incorporate technology into the curriculum. According to Caldwell and Hayward (1998) "schooling at the upper secondary level will become more complex and diverse, with multiple providers; combined with advances made possible by….

Apex Middle School, part of the wake county public school system in aleigh, NC has implemented a rigorous curriculum for grades 6, 7 and 8. The curriculum for Apex Middle School includes the following: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Computer Education, Health and Physical Education (Wake, 2003). The objectives of each of these programs are stated below. The Apex Middle School curriculum and objectives outlined in this paper are similar to the curriculum and objectives for most public middle schools in NC. How does this differ from the middle school curriculum typically seen in New York middle schools?
According to the New York State Education Department, the objective or mission of educators is "That all students will meet or exceed high learning standards at the elementary, middle, secondary and continuing education levels" (NYSED, 2003). Major reform is currently occurring in New York. These reforms will have the potential to greatly….
Students who are bussed to a larger school can use the time to be productive; reading, homework, etc.
1.5-2 hours per day of commuting is unacceptable for students and will eat into their family and work time.
A larger school will provide greater opportunity for social networks, sports, music, drama, and more extracurricular activities.
Loss of community will make the younger students uncomfortable as well.
A larger school will provide greater academic opportunities for the HS students in preparation for university; there are more resources available.
The student to teach ratio will change and the students will be part of just another large classroom.
Thus, the question really comes down to potential. Neither side can equivocally state that the future of the students will be better or worse; there are arguments for both as well as the possibility that the solution will be quite positive for some, not so positive for others. Clearly, there needs to….

There are specific daily steps that students in these working class schools must take, and in math, for example, the teacher "told them what the procedure was for each problem, rarely asking them to conceptualize or explain it themselves" (Anyon 528). And so the emphasis was on memorizing the steps, not on understanding how or why they are taken. Language arts class was much the same (copy the teacher's notes from the board). In the middle-class school, it was all about "getting the right answers." In social studies, it was the old-fashioned routine of reading the chapter and answering questions, and the same was true in language arts. "Creativity is not often requested in social studies and science projects..." Anyon writes (532).
Things were different in the affluent professional school and fathers' careers included corporate lawyer, cardiologist, engineer; difficult assignments required specific projects like film-making and script-writing; children wrote essays about….

The idea of developmentally appropriate practices was made popular by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) when the published their Position Statement on Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Early Childhood Programs in 1987. NAEYC developed this position statement in order to support its early childhood program accreditation system, which recognizes and sanctions programs that offer appropriate early childhood practices. Because of this system, early childhood educators can have a clear idea of suitable early childhood practices. This way they might not use inappropriate developmental and academic expectations to prepare children for public school kindergarten programs (Houser and Osborne, n.d.).
Having regulations such as the CA State licensing egulations, Title 22, helps to make sure that all of the fundamental elements of DAP and NAYEC are in place and are supporting the early childhood programs philosophies. These regulations are needed in order to make sure that quality programs are….
education and the teacher-learner relationship from a Christian-informed philosophical perspective. It begins with an explanation of the author's personal worldview, and then explores the various philosophical schools of education. Combining the two, the author explains how they have helped shape the author's approach to education. ather than relying on a single educational philosophy, the author intends to combine multiple philosophies in the classroom environment.
Describing the purpose of education is an interesting prospect because education is a cultural construct, and, as a result, what constitutes an education is dependent upon the surrounding culture. In a broad sense, an education is the instruction and learning that a person receives, in both formal and informal environments, which is aimed at preparing that person to live as an adult within the surrounding culture. When one views education as a means of adapting the individual to adult life in his or her own culture,….

ather than forming the one, who happens to live in America, into a citizen of this nation, the objective of the 21st century is to make him a citizen of the world. And it is arguable, too, whether the focus is on knowledge as power as it was in Mann's days; focus may have changed to knowledge of technology and business as per power as evidenced by the increasing number of dropouts and increasing stress of corporations and need to make money. Individualism was rubbed into conformism in the attempt to make one patriotic American citizen. It is thought that today we are more individualistic, but the reality may be that Adam Smith may merely have taken center place today, and contemporary conformism centers around money.
Other differences include the shift from nation to individual. In Mann's days the individual existed for the purpose of a common end, and, accordingly,….
Feminists, like Christine Pizan, who stressed the importance of female education and some of her male feminist contemporaries would mainly remain on the fringes as the classical form of education was reaffirmed as the standard.
In the 1970s, much of the challenge to female education was answered as the tradition of educating all people was accepted early in the development of the U.S. educations system, though it was not an easy transition and according to most inequalities still existed even in the late modern era. In fact there was no official federal department of education until 1979, yet this did not stop the progress of education.

His intention is to use an experimental approach by using statistical tools to quantify and assess program effectiveness by comparing school effectiveness ratings before implementation of the program with schools effectiveness ratings following the implementation of the program.
5. Is there anything in the procedures for collecting the information or in the instruments themselves that could bias the results or weaken the study?
The author does not describe the source of his schools merely stating the inclusive and exclusive criteria that they satisfied. The schools, all in Milwaukee, had to satisfy three main criteria: firstly that the program under study was introduced during a period when rating were available, secondly, that the number of schools introducing the program must be sufficient for statistical results, and thirdly, that there should be sufficient and adequate comparison groups. His research seems immune to bias.
The author does, however, mention the possibility of bias in the….
