Thesis: Elementary teachers may not have highest income, but they have one of the most fulfilling careers.
Introduction: When thinking back to elementary school, what most people remember the best, are the teachers they had along the way. Elementary teachers not only introduce their students to the basic concepts of core subjects, they also help pave the path to each student’s
The virtual organization that I selected for the Organizational Communication Analysis is Kelsey Elementary School. As a mother of a fifth grader, I am always interested in the communication efforts associated with elementary schools. In the past, school administrators and teachers were only able to communicate in person, through written correspondence, or by telephone. The technological advancements of the 21st century provide school faculty with the opportunity to connect

Some think that Cortes has the right idea by introducing five
fundamental concepts that all elementary schools should introduce to help their
students develop greater insight into human diversity. His first idea is
individuality and group identity. He believes that students need to understand
the significance of groups- racial, ethnic, gender
A lot of people think education is just something you get in school, but in reality education comes from different places and people not just school and teachers. For example, way before I started school I was already being educated by my parents, they taught me how to eat, behave, use the bathroom, talk, and a lot of other things that help out in life.
I started my educational career in John F. Kennedy Elementary. I don’t really remember my years there because I only
In the area of education, teaching language arts is one of the most crucial and critical elements in the process of learning. In elementary education teachers must ensure that an effective language arts program is a complete, orderly, and clear program that involves activities that fit to state and/or national standards teaching essential skills and strategies by using activities that are organized to meet those objectives. They must also engage students with active participation to foster learning
The primary school education requires six years in China. “Pupils are required to take a variety of subjects such as the Chinese language, fundamental mathematics and moral education. They also take part in sports and extra-curriculum activities. Foreign languages such as English are optional courses in the senior year of the primary education. “China is very focused on mathematics and the Chinese language being basic courses in compulsory education” (Wang, J., & Li, Y, 2009).

I know now that I have a lot of work to do in order to become a good math elementary teacher in the future. I know now my math skills need a lot of work. Learning the online way was difficult for me because I guess I need interaction to learn just as I would want to teach my students. I will take all the lesson learned and apply

Contemporary education reforms study on the continuous black-white achievement gap in the public schools, in America. In the book, “Multiplication is meant for White People”: Raising Expectations for Other people’s Children, Lisa Delpit focuses on these reforms and informs educators that education gap does not exist at birth..

In the article, “What Is College For? (Part 2)” written by Gary Gutting we see a description of his ideal vision to improve education and the intellectual culture of our citizens. Mr. Gutting emphasizes that preparing students for employment should be the job of the elementary, middle and high school rather than college. He argues that higher education is basically unnecessary for the practice of many professions.
At the beginning of this article he states “colleges and universities

Updated Sept. 19, 2011
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, signed into law by President Bush on Jan. 8, 2002, was a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the central federal law in pre-collegiate education. The ESEA, first enacted in 1965 and previously reauthorized in 1994, encompasses Title I, the federal government's flagship aid program for disadvantaged students.

just a bystander that does nothing to prevent this problem. Bullying affects people both young and old.
"When you think of a bully, you might not picture a young child. While bullying is most
common in the elementary and secondary grades, it is important for early childcare and education programs to be aware that associated bullying behaviors begin early even into the preschool years." (Healthy Child Care 2006).
therefore, teachers must be able to use effective teaching methods in the classroom. Students have diverse learning styles; therefore, teachers need to determine how students learn best and pattern their teaching to accommodate these differences.

GANG VIOLENCE IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS
There are approximately 27,900 gangs, with 774,000 members, impacting towns, cities, and communities across the United States.

The government budgeted quite a high amount for higher education, but did miss out to stimulate the early education. By doing so inequality was even further build out. If Brazil wants to foster from its human capital it has to start budgeting fair amounts for elementary and secondary school, so Brazil can gain from its people by 2050.
Furguson allowed separate but equal school systems for blacks and whites, and no Supreme Court ruling had yet overturned the Plessy case. Therefore, because Plessy had held precedence, the Courts felt compelled to rule in favor of the Board of Education.

Effects of globalization in education

Auburn Schools: Moving in the Right Direction
In 2011, ten years after Maine began issuing laptops to all seventh graders, the Auburn School System launched an initiative to provide an iPad 2 for each of its students entering kindergarten. At a cost of roughly $200,000- representing a 5% increase in the school budget (Opinions Divided…) some taxpayers were less than pleased- calling it a complete waste of money. But in Auburn- and schools around the country- trends are emerging and showing the iPad
Emotionally Disturbed Students
Students with emotional and behavioral disorders (E/BD) frequently exhibit academic deficits alongside their behavioral deficits, particularly in the area of reading; however, there are very few studies examining ways to address the reading problems of this population of students at the middle and high school level.

Definitions of multicultural education vary. Some place emphasizes on the cultural characteristics of diverse groups, some emphasize social problems such as those associated with oppression, some place emphasize on political power, while others on the reallocation of economic resources.

Other definitions limit multicultural education to characteristics of local
With an eye for reform, the Mo-Mart Digital Learning project understands that education is an important aspect of human life. However how that education is received into a child's way of life is depended upon the way it gets passed on.

Whether or not armed security guards should be in schools has been a debate for years but has really been brought into the limelight since the most recent tragedies of Columbine, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook. The supporters of having armed security in our school districts believe that it is a needed layer of security and helps to diminish response time if necessary while keeping children, parents
Education should only be concerned with what is useful in life. Discuss.
Education is championed to be the solution of many prevailing problems society is facing today. An overarching view of education can be seen as a way in which people gain knowledge, information and understanding, and learn new skills. One can safely say that the breadth and depth of what can be learned cannot be finished in a lifetime and thus it often forces educators to sieve out and choose areas that are deemed useful
the right to privacy. Case 9.1: Unprofessional Conduct shows how Pettit privacy was violated. Pettit was a teacher of many years and never had a bad evaluation of her work. What she did outside of work was labeled unprofessional by the Board of Education and they chose to fire her because they believed she was unfit to teach. I disagree with them completely and they did violate her privacy.

A woman registered nurse will earn more than 5% less than a male nurse (2). Another survey in 2008 found that male elementary school teachers earned 14% more than a female elementary school teacher (2). Issues of pay equity are not addressed by any federal laws. An Equal Rights Amendment could remedy these and many other concerns of women in the workforce.
The interference of a woman's right to control
The myth of “education and empowerment” has affected public schools tremendously in a sense that everyone is being divided, mostly by class, which lowers the confidence of our students today. Yes, there are teachers who cater to students, stay after class, and provide them with one on one tutoring and even take time from their lunch to offer extra assistance in any subject. However, there are other public schools in which teachers do not take the initiative to listen and understand when their student

Racism and Its Effects
Racism is an ongoing force that negatively impacts the lives of Americans every day. The racist mindset in America stems from the times of slavery, where blacks were thought to be inferior to whites.

Taught more than thirty decades ago, cursive writing has a famed and legendary past. It was once a vital element of American education but is now becoming an archaic artefact as technology advancement and the requirement of more regulated tests push it out of the education system. Cursive writing should be scrapped out of the education system for there is no need of wasting time and resources to continue teaching a skill that won’t be beneficial to the students in the near future
the state requested facilities at both the high school and elementary school be used as emergency shelters, had we said no to the request, they simply would have told us they WERE going to use them as shelters anyway. This is an example of the state being in control ultimately.
Day-to-day school operations that are not controlled by the local school district involve teacher issues. These teacher issues are controlled by the State Education Agencies. An example given would be licensure as a teacher
Malcolm X VS. Frederick Douglass
How would you compare your education experience with Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass? Education comes from attending elementary; middle school, high school, and college.

Education and economic development are two major issues that will help prevent poverty.
