  • Home School - 1,673 words
    Home School Before the beginning of American public schools in the mid-19th century, home schooling was the norm. Founding father John Adams encouraged his spouse to educate their children while he was on diplomatic missions (Clark, 1994). By the 1840's instruction books for the home were becoming popular in the United States and Britain. The difficulty of traveling to the system of community schools was provoking detractors. At this time, most of the country began moving toward public schools (Clark, 1994). One of the first things early pioneers did was set aside a plot of land to build a school house and try to recruit the most educated resident to be the schoolmarm. This led to recruiting ...

  • School Choice: Public Education Vs Home School - 1,504 words
    School Choice: Public Education vs. Home School When Americans think of education, they almost automatically think of public education. Through the years it is slowly changing. Many parents today are deciding to home school their children. Although most people think that a public education is better, most statistics and facts tend to show that home schooling is beneficial in more ways. It is estimated that parents are now teaching over two million children at home, rather than in public or even private schools. Education in our public schools has been on the down slope for over twenty years now. Public schools have lost all values and biblical morality. This was what our country was founded ...

    ... havior. Experiments have shown those males exhibit higher levels of aggression than do females. The aggressive behavior starts in the adolescent stages of life and may continue into adulthood. Where does the aggressiveness originate? Part of the explanation is that children who are sociable and spontaneous exhibit more aggressive behavior than those who do not. Surprisingly, common traits amongst these children are being first born, having a stable family life and a shy temperament. More current, up to date explanation state that aggression is learned response to frustration and by observing others who exhibit the same aggressive behavior. Males also are at greater risk for developing cr ...

  • Care About Children - 1,199 words
    Care About Children We who have been entrusted with the education and care of children are obligated to go "above and beyond" when it comes to looking out for their welfare. Educators and administrators have no recourse but to look beyond the surface, investigate if necessary, and protect the children to whom we have made ourselves responsible. Dave Pelzer, who is currently an advocate for abused children, has written a compelling three book series detailing his own life as an abused child and the aftereffects of his abuse. His case was the third worst case of child abuse on record in the state of California. (Pelzer, 1995, 168) Pelzers mother was an alcoholic who was both physically and emo ...

  • Child Labor In Victorian England - 1,064 words
    Child Labor In Victorian England "The report described the children as Chained, belted, harnessed like dogs...black, saturated with wet, and more than half-naked, crawling upon their hands and knees, and dragging their heavy loads behind them" (Yancey 34). This quote from Ivor Brown probably best describes the strenuous work preformed by a child laborer during the Victorian Era. Child laborers played an important part in developing the countrys economy. Children, one of the main sources of labor in Victorian England, endured less than adequate living and working conditions. During the Victorian Period children were good sources of labor. Beginning work as young as six or seven employers saw ...

  • Good Bad Design - 412 words
    Good Bad Design The good design nuances of Colors magazine lend well to the Macsystems advert. Maybe this comes from the similar design goal that a magazine and advert share. Their functions are to clearly and effectively communicate information, whilst also to visualise an identity for itself. As a chief social function of design is to visualise the identity of institutions and audiences. To reiterate this point. Think about what the Macsystems advert would look like if it were redesigned with the Underworld/Tomato sleeve? The result for me would have been more interesting to look at. This would however detract from the adverts readability, making it harder to decode, ineffective as an info ...

    Home Schooling It May Be The Best Thing for Your Child Home schooling... will it be beneficial or harmful to the student? Can the child fit in or perform normal social functions in the real world? Do the parents have certified credibility to educate? How well will the child adjust to everyday life? Do they interact normally with others of the same age? Can they function in an uncontrolled environment? All of these questions are quite legitimate and realistic. However, the real question to be answered is-- What is in the best interest of the children? Since they are the leaders of tomorrow, we must secure a strong education in our children for their own personal welfare as well as the welfare ...

  • Home And School Education - 1,342 words
    Home And School Education What do George Washington, Thomas Edison and Theodore Roosevelt have in common besides fame? None of them joined school formally (Winger and Kantrowitz 6). In recent years, many have followed their example and started learning at home in the United States. The number of home schooled children has greatly increased over the past decade. Many have argued against home schooling while many others see no negative outcomes involved. Although homeschooling has no major benefits over public schooling, evidence shows that parents can help children achieve a level of education similar to other school students and that homeschooled children do not lack in social skills. Home s ...

  • Home Schoooling - 1,411 words
    Home Schoooling Home schooling is an alternative to public education. It is a choice that many more parents are making today, and even more are projected to make by the year 2000. It is estimated that at the end of the year 2000 there will be 2,000,000 home schoolers in the United States (Gorder 1996). There are other alternatives to Public School education. Some examples are Catholic or Private schools or a privately hired tutor. There are many reasons why people home school their children.

The government already has to many regulations on lots of things, who wants Uncle Sams hand in the web. Some of the regulations that are applied are there for specific reasons. Those protect the people before the damage to say a young child posing for porn can be done. Those people that would be trying to regulate the Internet could be going after those sick, pathetic petafiles that float around in the child chat rooms. In my opinion, the parents should be the ones that are responsible for what their children view on the Internet. The net itself can be very valuable i ...

  • Media Violence And Its Effects On Children - 1,118 words
    Media Violence And Its Effects On Children Introduction Communications technology is expanding through the entire global community (Dyson 2). Children everywhere are being born into a world of images and messages, which are largely separated from their home, school and spiritual lives (Dyson 2). In society today storytellers are seldom parents, grandparents, teachers or the clergy; instead they are the handful of distant forces with something to sell (Dyson 2). What is unique about the media industry is that in global and corporate domination they have become part of our culture as well as our identity (Dyson 3). Social scientists and child advocates have been exploring the effects of media ...

  • Mormonism - 2,557 words
    Mormonism The summer of 1830, following the organization of the Church, brought further persecution and trials, particularly for the Smith family. Joseph Smith, Sr., father of the Prophet, was one of his most loyal defenders. On one occasion that fall, he was at home with his wife Lucy, and had been "rather ill." A number of neighbors came to call, mostly critical of the reputation of the Smith family. One "Quaker gentleman" came with a note for a fourteen-dollar debt owed him by Joseph Sr., demanding payment, though he apparently was not in great need of the money. Father Smith offered to pay the man six dollars, which was all he had, and arrange to get the rest as soon as possible. Accordi ...

  • Responding To Stress - 736 words
    Responding to Stress Suppose that you are in your car in the middle of a traffic jam heading home from school after a terrible day. You feel frustrated and groan as you think about the calculus midterm you have tomorrow, which you still have to study for. Suddenly, you have to hit the brakes. Your heart starts beating faster and you insult the driver whom nearly made you crash. Are these reactions normal? Indeed they are, since they are merely examples of stress.

  • Susan Brownell Anthony - 1,751 words
    Susan Brownell Anthony I. Susan B. Anthony : A Biographical Introduction Susan Brownell Anthony was born on February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts to Daniel and Lucy Anthony. Susan was the second born of eight children in a strict Quaker family. Her father, Daniel Anthony, was said to have been a stern man, a Quaker Abolitionist and a cotton manufacturer born near the conclusion of the eighteenth century. From what I read, he believed in "guiding" his children, not in 'directing' them. Daniel Anthony did not allow his offspring to experience the childish amusements of toys, games, and music, which were seen as distractions from the "inner light." Instead he enforced self-discipline, prin ...

  • Taliban - 1,393 words
    Taliban Afghanistan followed the same fate as dozens of formerly Soviet-occupied countries after the collapse of Moscow's Marxist government in 1991. Islamic factions, which had united to expel the Russian occupiers in 1992, began to fight among themselves when it became apparent that post-communist coalition governments could not overcome the deep-rooted ethnic and religious differences of the members. It was in this atmosphere of economic strife and civil war that a fundamentalist band of religious students emerged victorious. By 1996, this group, the Taliban, ruled 90% of the country with a controversial holy iron hand. The other 10% of the country is tenaciously held by minority oppositi ...
