As many people can attest, there is a major advantage to attending college. This is particularly true for those who want to enter any field related to the medical sciences. Most major careers in medicine require a degree of some kind, and in general there’s a huge advantage to going to college. On average, the hourly wage for college graduates is around $32.60, and 83% of those who attended college report that their degree has paid off. With the job market becoming increasingly competitive, it’s important to have something that sets you apart — and with 89% of college-educated millennials working full-time in 2013, it’s clear that a degree will do just that. Of course, if you want a career in the medical sciences, you’ll often need more than just a bachelors degree. Lots of people pursue masters de
Are you considering going back to school to get a degree in interdisciplinary studies? Or perhaps a psychology degree or something else entirely is looking attractive to you at this point. However, if it’s been a good few years since you stepped food in a class room, you might be a little hesitant. Thinking about all of those younger students and the whole college atmosphere can be a little daunting. Too many people let these kinds of thoughts stop them from ever going back to college. Don’t be one of them. If you are getting the itch to go back to school
There are two basic differences between a private school and a public school: governance, and finances. Private schools receive funding from tuition fees, donations and gifts, grants, and other fundraising opportunities. Public schools are funded by government agencies, and are managed by them as well. Private schools are governed by an independent board of trustees. While these two aspects define the essential differences, the fact is that many other differences exist. Whether you choose a public or private high school, it?s best to be aware of the benefits of private schools. In the United States, there are currently over 30,000 private schools, and between Pre-K to high school, they serve over 5 million students. In fact, about 24 percent of all U.S. schools are private, enrolling approximately 1
As parents, we all want our kids to have a high level of grade school readiness by the time that they start kindergarten. Being a little ahead of the curve will make the transition easier for them, usually. Teachers of kindergartners understand that this might be one of the most difficult transitions if the child has never been away from home and can work with that. However, it’s a good idea to start them academically before they even get into kindergarten. There are several things that parents can do to promote grade school readiness. Here are just a few things that you can do for your kids to make that transition into ‘big kid school’ just a little easier.
Teach them at home. You can actually b
Employer sponsored childcare is a dream working parents wish for but rarely find offered to them in the workplace. Why are companies not offering this prized carrot to their employees? On-site childcare facilities that are subsidized by the company are offered exclusively to workers, and for the businesses that chose to do this an increase in retention is observed. Still un-sold? Read below for a few more reasons why employer sponsored childcare may be the next big thing in the workplace.
Are Your Employee’s Jumping Ship Unexpectedly?
The time, money, and effort that goes into hiring and training new employees is considerable.
The importance of early childhood education has been established for decades. Currently, two-thirds of the nation’s four-year-olds are attending preschools and child-care centers. Early-childhood education classes, or preschools, also accept children as young as three. While some schools have a full day preschool schedule, others have part-time options.
When considering public versus private preschool for your child, you may have quite a few questions and concerns. If the cost of private preschool tuition is an issue, for example, you may want to focus on the significant advantages of your child attending a private school.
The Advantages of Private Preschools
The trend in the United States for decades now has been to “mainstream” children with autism and other learning disabilities in regular classes. But there are alternatives that some parents prefer, including putting their children into special education schools.
One of the biggest issues that special education teachers deal with these days is autism. Whether it is an actual increase in the disorder or just better diagnosis, the number of autism cases has increased dramatically since the 1980s, and it is now estimated that one in every 50 children has some form of autism. Kids with mild forms of autism may simply appear socially awkward and have no real cognitive deficits while those with more serious forms can be non-verbal an
Every parent wants their child to receive a high quality education. And these days, that starts at a very young age, even prior to elementary school. With 3 out 4 children in the United States enrolled, preschools are on the up and up lately and for good reason. 1. Interaction with other children. In a preschool setting, your child will learn how to socialize with their peers which they most likely haven’t had much experience in if they’ve been with a nanny or stay at home parent. Being able to get along with others and work cooperatively is a key part of your child’s high quality education. 2. Structured daily routine. If a child is used to days full of unstruct
Every parent wants the best for his or her child. It is a natural feeling to want to protect and guide your child toward the best possible life that she or he can lead. However, as any parent can attest to, achieving and obtaining the very best for your child is not without road blocks and difficulties at times. And if you are the parent of a special needs child, some of those difficulties seem to grow significantly in comparison to the obstacles that other parents and children face. Learning how to navigate those trials will not only help you grow as a parent, but also help your child grow into the happy, well-rounded individual they can be.
Education is always the answer
Regardless of whether or not a child has special needs, one of the most important thing
For most Americans, we were introduced to the Spanish language early in our academic years. While many people learned in middle school, Spanish for preschoolers has grown increasingly popular in recent years. So much so that preschool Spanish lessons are being taught both in and outside of school.
Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the influence of Latin culture within the country and are positioning their children to adapt to the changes. The Spanish curriculum for elementary school is changing in many states
