Education-Other

Public elementary and secondary education are free in Canada. As education is regulated at the provincial level, the ages of when children start/finish school vary across the provinces/territories, as does the curriculum taught in classrooms. According to The Government of Canada, by law all children must attend school. They typically start at the age of 5 or 6, depending on the province, and must continue until they are 16-18. (http://www.cic.gc.ca) Post secondary schools in Canada also fall under the responsibility of the individual provinces and territories. Therefore, the amount of funding they receive and the amount of tuition or other fees that they charge can vary by province to province. The only exception is the The Royal Military College of Canadan (RMC), which is the the military academy of the Canadian Forces and is the only federal institution in Canada with full degree-granting powers. Are you considering both public and private elementary education options for your child, a friend or family member? Are you considering post-secondary education? Do you have questions about the costs involved, and potential financial support available for various education options? Are you looking for information regarding specific curricula or certain subjects being taught in your child’s classroom? Or are you looking for tutoring or other education support? Education is important, and there are many options and resources available. Browse through Kinjunxion’s resources for information and support to answer your education questions.

The Other School Reformers

Conservative Activism in American Education

The idea that American education has been steered by progressivism is accepted as fact by liberals and conservatives alike. Adam Laats shows that this belief is wrong. Calling to center stage conservatives who shaped America’s classrooms, he shows that in the long march of American public education, progressive reform has been a beleaguered dream.

Aims of Education

The general topic of this volume is education on its intellectual side. One main idea runs through the various chapters, and it is illustrated in them from many points of view. It can be stated briefly thus: the students are alive, and the purpose of education is to stimulate and guide their self-development. It follows as a corollary from this premise, that the teachers also should be alive with living thoughts. The whole book is a protest against dead knowledge, that is to say, inert ideas. - Preface.

Permission to Forget, Tenth Anniversary Edition

And Nine Other Root Causes of America's Frustration with Education

This book describes 10 decades of wasteful practices buried deep within U.S. schools. Today’s educators did not invent these wasteful practices; they inherited them. Five of the root causes are wasting time and five are wasting student potential. Ten years ago the first edition of Permission to Forget was published, and now this landmark anniversary edition is available. Its legacy of improvement is report after report from educators describing what happens in schools when these root causes are removed. It should not go unnoticed that root cause removal is free, unlike legislated reforms. Think about it: free! But teachers, principals, and district superintendents must collaborate in order to remove these root causes. Teachers can not remove them by themselves. Principals can not remove them by themselves. Superintendents can not remove them by themselves. Only together can teams of educators lead the removal of these 10 wasteful practices and provide America the education it desires.

Service-Learning in Physical Education and Other Related Professions: A Global Perspective

The study and application of service learning as a pedagogy has become widespread. Service-Learning in Physical Education and Other Related Professions: A Global Perspective demonstrates how faculty in physical education and other related professions have designed, implemented, assessed, and conducted action research involving service-learning as a teaching and learning method, both locally and globally, as a means of both serving the community and enriching the lives of their students. This text is broken down into three parts: •Part I provides a definition of service learning, examines the parameters that have been explored in physical education and higher education in general, and the integration of standards to ensure high-quality service-learning. •Part II focuses on the pedagogical frameworks in which service-learning thrives and explores how the model specifically meets national standards and best practices. It also explores the emerging role of research as a measurement tool of the effectiveness of service learning. •Part III explores a variety of programs from around the globe that utilize service-learning in their pedagogical framework, and provides the nuts and bolts of what they have done and their accomplishments.

Education and other modes of thinking in Latin America

After long periods of military dictatorships, civil wars, and economic instability, Latin America has changed face, and become the foremost region for counter-hegemonic processes. This book seeks to address contemporary paradigms of education and learning in Latin America. Although the production of knowledge in the region has long been subject to imperial designs and disseminated through educational systems, recent interventions – from liberation theology, popular education, and critical literacy to postcolonial critique and decolonial options – have sought to shift the geography of reason. Over the last decades, several Latin American communities have countered this movement by forming some of the most dynamic and organised forms of resistance: from the landless movements in Brazil to the Zapatistas in the Chiapas region of Mexico, from the indigenous social movements in Bolivia to Venezuela’s Chavistas, to mention but a few. The central question to be addressed is how, in times of historical ruptures, political reconstructions, and epistemic formations, the production of paradigms rooted in ‘other’ logics, cosmologies, and realities may renegotiate and redefine concepts of education, learning, and knowledge. Consequently, this book transcends disciplinary, epistemological, and methodological boundaries in education and learning by engagement with ‘other’ paradigms. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Lifelong Education.

This Won't Hurt a Bit

(And Other White Lies): My Education in Medicine and Motherhood

Michelle Au started medical school armed only with a surfeit of idealism, a handful of old ER episodes for reference, and some vague notion about "helping people." This Won't Hurt a Bit is the story of how she grew up and became a real doctor. It's a no-holds-barred account of what a modern medical education feels like, from the grim to the ridiculous, from the heartwarming to the obscene. Unlike most medical memoirs, however, this one details the author's struggles to maintain a life outside of the hospital, in the small amount of free time she had to live it. And, after she and her husband have a baby early in both their medical residencies, Au explores the demands of being a parent with those of a physician, two all-consuming jobs in which the lives of others are very literally in her hands. Au's stories range from hilarious to heartbreaking and hit every note in between, proving more than anything that the creation of a new doctor (and a new parent) is far messier, far more uncertain, and far more gratifying than one could ever expect.

Women's Education in Developing Countries

Barriers, Benefits, and Policies

Why do women in most developing countries lag behind men in literacy? Why do women get less schooling than men? This anthology examines the educational decisions that deprive women of an equal education. It assembles the most up-to-date data, organized by region. Each paper links the data with other measures of economic and social development. This approach helps explain the effects different levels of education have on womens' fertility, mortality rates, life expectancy, and income. Also described are the effects of women's education on family welfare. The authors look at family size and women's labor status and earnings. They examine child and maternal health, as well as investments in children's education. Their investigation demonstrates that women with a better education enjoy greater economic growth and provide a more nurturing family life. It suggests that when a country denies women an equal education, the nation's welfare suffers. Current strategies used to improve schooling for girls and women are examined in detail. The authors suggest an ambitious agenda for educating women. It seeks to close the gender gap by the next century. Published for The World Bank by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
