The objection of distinguishing between good and less than good parents is wrong because Lafollette states in his paper that his proposal “…does not demand that we license only the best parents; rather it is designed to exclude only the very bad ones” (Lafollette 1980, 190)....   [tags: Hugh Lafollette's paper, good-bad pareting] 765 words

Life in the Iron Mills by Rebecca Harding Davis - ... If the story had ended with Hugh passing away in jail, it would have been more consistent with the beginning and middle of the story, and more believable. When Hugh is in jail, a reader accepts that the story will not end in his favor because the tone is sad and depressing. The reader gets the impression that “life in the iron mills” is not one of luxury but a life of hardship, disappointment and a longing for something better. The climax of the story, when Hugh feels as though the money he and Deb stole was actually “his right,” was short-lived and disappointing, similar to his entire life....   [tags: society, quaker character] 788 words

How Friel Involves his Audience in the Conflict Between Coloniser and Colonised in his Play Translations - How Friel Involves his Audience in the Conflict Between Coloniser and Colonised in his Play Translations The play 'translations' by Brian Friel is set in Ireland in 1833. During this time, the area was undergoing colonisation by the English and the play represents a microcosm of the events occurring all over the nation at the time. The consequence of this colonisation was inevitably that the Gaelic language native to Ireland was eventually lost and replaced by English. Friel develops a pre-disposed bias towards the colonised through the characterisation of both Hugh and Lancey and this creates an allegiance between the audience and the Hedge school natives....   [tags: Papers] 732 words

Brian Friel's "Translations" - Brian Friel's "Translations" 'Translations', by Brian Friel, presents us with an idyllic rural community turned on its head as the result of the recording and translation of place names into English; an action which is at first sight purely administrative. In Act 1 of the play, Friel brings together the inhabitants of this quaint Irish village in what can only be described as a gathering of minds - minds which study the classics, yet minds which study dead languages. In the same way, while this community is rich in culture and togetherness, it is also trapped in what is later described as a "contour which no longer matches the landscape of…fact"....   [tags: Friel Translations Essays] 1986 words

Higher Education - Higher education, more than economics The economic position taken by management in relation to increasing use of educational technology for teaching, in part falls under the quality agenda for student parity of experience and institutional marketability against competition. Students take a similar economic argument and support the management position, citing a need for flexibility and value for money. However, Redding (2005), Sharrock (2000) and Molesworth (2009) question the notion of students as consumer, and parity in teaching and learning across programmes is strongly rejected....   [tags: Educational Technology, Redding, Sharrock] 679 words
