Start early and make it a habit before you introduce TV and video games. Limit screen-time, including TV, video games, and computer. Trade some of their structured activities for free time. Appeal to kids’ natural interests (e.g. sports: try hiking or canoeing, science: try gardening or rock collecting). Model outdoor time behavior yourself and focus on fun!
Until the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) took effect, little public attention was focused on accountability for what can be managed in our school system. And that is the quality of our teachers, our curriculum, our professional development programs, our teaching training programs and our student achievement levels.
I hear anti-smoking advocates are getting ready to re-introduce another total smoking ban ordinance here in Indianapolis. I also hear that because of Smoke Free Indy’s shenanigans last session a number of lawmakers are looking at drafting pre-emption language which would prohibit locals from banning smoking in tobacco shops, private clubs and cigar bars. So if something does happen this year or next year, there’s a good chance it will be short-lived.
It isn’t as simple as where kids grow up. It’s a matter of family resources. Financial resources matter, obviously. Books, bug terrariums, guitars, and music lessons all cost money. But it’s also a matter of human and intellectual resources.
Education is nothing but adding in the learning process of the child. Marks cannot weigh the learning abilities of a child. Focus must be on perfection of the learning process of the child rather than marks. We have an aim of building a child as a good human being with all round development out of the education. We don’t want the marking system of Board exams which categories the students into good and bad, even worst. Comparing by rank, by marks and stressing upon the child to fetch good marks have been going to be outdated. And education will be a research based studies. Now goal will not be to keep highest marks but to perfect in learning.
Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we have the solution to healthcare reform and doctor shortages rolled into education reform. Just stock up on bandages and castor oil and it will be alright.
A. Give writing tests, interviews, and background checks. Admission to the college of education should be tougher than any department, after all teachers are going to be dealing with CHILDREN – THE FUTURE – OUR FUTURE.
This refusal to help a fellow Republican needs to be exposed. GOP voters need understand that party weakness in Illinois is a function of the large numbers of “Patronage Republicans,” who have split the party between “tax, borrow and spend” patronage seekers, and the productive citizens that must pay for their pet projects.
