Education in England

Education in England
The education system is divided into early years (ages 3–4), primary education (ages 4–11), secondary education (ages 11–18) and tertiary education (ages 18+). Higher education often begins with a three-year bachelor's degree. Postgraduate degrees include master's degrees, either taught or by research, and the doctorate, a research degree that usually takes at least three years. History of English education[edit] Until 1870 all schools were charitable or private institutions, but in that year the Elementary Education Act 1870 permitted local governments to complement the existing elementary schools, to fill up any gaps. Education to the age of 18[edit] State-funded schools[edit] St Barnabas Church of England Primary School, Oxford Since 1998, there have been six main types of maintained school in England:[16][17][18] In addition, 3 of the 15 City Technology Colleges established in the 1980s still remain, the rest having converted to academies.

Multicultural education Multicultural education is a set of strategies and materials in U.S. education that were developed to assist teachers to respond to the many issues created by rapidly changing demographics of their students. It provides students knowledge about the histories, cultures, and contributions of diverse groups. Multicultural education assumes that the future of U.S. society is pluralistic. Today, teachers in most urban areas face students from a variety of social classes and cultural and language groups. Many students do not share the middle-class, European American culture common to most college-educated teachers. Joe L. This theory concentrates on the need of including notions of race, class, and diversity while teaching. Kincheloe and Steinberg's taxonomy of multicultural education[edit] Kincheloe and Steinberg in Changing Multiculturalism (1997) described confusion in the use of the terms "multiculturalism" and "multicultural education". Conservative multiculturalism[edit] Assumptions:

Education in Australia Adults employed in the education and training industry as a percentage of the adult population in Australia divided geographically by statistical local area, as of the 2011 census Education in Australia is primarily the responsibility of the states and territories. Each state or territory government provides funding and regulates the public and private schools within its governing area. The federal government helps fund the public universities, but was not involved in setting university curriculum.[8] As of 2012, the Australian National Curriculum,[9] under development and trial for several years, has already been adopted by some schools and will become mandatory soon. Generally, education in Australia follows the three-tier model which includes primary education (primary schools), followed by secondary education (secondary schools/high schools) and tertiary education (Universities, TAFE colleges and Vocation Education and Training providers (VET providers)).

Britain’s School System Explained The following is a guest post by Liz Jarvis from Living with Kids . I don’t envy anyone having to navigate the British school system. It’s an absolute minefield. Right from the start you’re plagued with that awful suspicion that if you make One False Move you’ll be messing up your child’s future. It’s fiercely competitive, and in some cases takes skill, cunning, joining a church and even moving house to get your child into a Good School. It’s the endless topic of conversation at school gates and dinner parties across the UK. Here’s (roughly) how it shapes up – please note that this isn’t exhaustive by any means, the British school system is incredibly complicated: Primary schools: The State (FREE) primaries usually go from ages 5 to 11. Prep schools/private primaries: You have to pay fees – sometimes exorbitant – to send your child to these schools, which tend to be smaller than the state primaries. Secondary schools: (This is where the competition gets really fierce.) Grammar schools:

Data The word data is the traditional plural form of the now-archaic datum, neuter past participle of the Latin dare, "to give", hence "something given". In discussions of problems in geometry, mathematics, engineering, and so on, the terms givens and data are used interchangeably. This usage is the origin of data as a concept in computer science or data processing: data are accepted numbers, words, images, etc. Data is also increasingly used in humanities (particularly in the growing digital humanities) the highly interpretive nature whereof might oppose the ethos of data as "given". Usage in English[edit] Datum means "an item given". The IEEE Computer Society allows usage of data as either a mass noun or plural based on author preference.[8] Some professional organizations and style guides[9][dead link] require that authors treat data as a plural noun. Meaning of data, information and knowledge[edit] It is people and computers who collect data and impose patterns on it. See also[edit]

Education in the United States Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities. 88% of school-age children attend public schools, 9% attend private schools, and nearly 3% are homeschooled.[5] There are also a large number and wide variety of publicly and privately administered institutions of higher education throughout the country. Post-secondary education, divided into college, as the first tertiary degree, and graduate school, is described in a separate section below. History[edit] In 1823, Reverend Samuel Read Hall founded the first normal school, the Columbian School in Concord, Vermont,[7][8] to improve the quality of the burgeoning common school system by producing more qualified teachers. Starting from about 1876, thirty-nine states (out of 50) passed a constitutional amendment to their state constitutions, called Blaine Amendments after James G. Statistics[edit]

Introduction (essay) The introduction typically describes the scope of the document and gives the brief explanation or summary of the document. It may also explain certain elements that are important to the essay if explanations are not part of the main text. The readers can have an idea about the following text before they actually start reading it. Keeping the concept of the introduction the same, different documents have different styles to introduce the written text. Education in the United Kingdom Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under separate governments: the UK Government is responsible for England; the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland,[1] Wales[2] and Northern Ireland, respectively. For details of education in each country, see: In each country there are five stages of education: early years, primary, secondary, Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE).[3] Education is compulsory for all children between the ages of 5 (4 in Northern Ireland) and 16;[3] before this children can be educated at nursery.[4] FE is non-compulsory, and covers non-advanced education which can be taken at further (including tertiary) education colleges and HE institutions (HEIs).

Academy (English school) Academies are self-governing and most are constituted as registered charities or operated by other educational charities, and may receive additional support from personal or corporate sponsors, either financially or in kind. They must meet the same National Curriculum core subject requirements as other state schools and are subject to inspection by Ofsted. The Labour Government under Tony Blair established academies in 2000. The chief architect of the policy was Andrew Adonis (now Lord Adonis, formerly Secretary of State at the Department for Transport) in his capacity as education advisor to the Prime Minister in the late 1990s.[2] The introduction of academy schools was opposed, notably by teachers' trade unions and some high-profile members within the Labour Party, such as former party leader Lord Kinnock.[3][4] There are no academies in Wales, as education policy there is devolved to the Welsh Assembly.

Case study This article is about the method of doing research. For the teaching method, see Case method. For the method of teaching law, see Casebook method. In the social sciences and life sciences, a case study (or case report) is a descriptive, exploratory or explanatory analysis of a person, group or event. Thomas[3] offers the following definition of case study: "Case studies are analyses of persons, events, decisions, periods, projects, policies, institutions, or other systems that are studied holistically by one or more method. Another suggestion is that case study should be defined as a research strategy, an empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context. The case study is sometimes mistaken for the case method, but the two are not the same. Case selection and structure[edit] An average, or typical, case is often not the richest in information. Three types of cases may thus be distinguished: Key casesOutlier casesLocal knowledge cases See also[edit]
