The use of textbooks and paper tests in classrooms was necessary in the past century because it prepared students for the use of the same materials in their future workplaces. However, in today’s workplace technological devices like the personal computer and ipads have replaced those form of materials making them irrelevant. Although today’s workplaces reinvented their traditional archaic method of working, same cannot be said about today’s school system. In our society, the decision to reinvert today’s education system should be prioritized due to the fall of the American Education system in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development rankings. A question today’s technological advance society needs to ask is “how do we make over the twentieth-century classroom to take advantage of all the remarkable digital benefits of the twentieth century”(Davidson 55).
The national debate on education raised similar concerns about the educator tenure process, teaching strategies, and resources. These three areas are not the only ones higher education may try to improve. However, they represent a starting point to positively transform the teaching and learning process by developing and implementing effective teacher observations, research-based instructional practices, and technology adaptations. Since president Obama raised the debate on education, the public pinpointed the teacher evaluation system as one of the education policies which infringes student growth. Many policymakers and stakeholders stated that schools and colleges hire ineffective teachers and keep others who show no professional growth for years.

The writer has carefully introduced Zelda in the book to represent women of questionable morals in the society. Through her, the reader is in a position to learn the evolution and growth of liberty that women in the US have undergone in their quest to achieve modernity. Also, through CoCo Chanel, the designer, one gets to understand how a woman is able to use the talents and skills she has to liberate other women in society. Through her clothing and design techniques, she was able to shun traditional ways of a woman’s life and live a life which was more independent. She stayed away from the old root, Victorian ideology.
Creativity is one’s ability to create new and original ideas for multiple purposes have it be to find a way around a problem or just for sheer entertainment. Human creativity has been an essential part to surviving and thriving throughout history. However, according to the 2010 Torrance Test, a test of creativity that is administered to millions of people worldwide, creativity has declined steadily since 1990 especially in America. In order to maintain human ingenuity and continue to find better solutions for some of today’s biggest problems, we need our future generations to be more creative. The best way to help save creativity and further evolve our ingenuity would be for the school board to create a class in creativity for our school.
This in turn, has a lasting ripple effect that grows within the fiber of society. Creating Educational Leaders by Transforming School Culture The demographics of the American culture have inordinately been changing over the past century as the ethnic diversity of the public school student is reaching near 45% non white (Fallon, O’Keefe, & Sugai, 2012). This blending of ethnic and technological cultures within a school presents many challenges to the administration and teachers alike. Diversity training is well needed to educate the leaders of schools how to respect, but yet create a balance between religious faiths, the attire that a ethnic group may wear, how individuals articulate their words and thoughts, and lifestyle choices to name a few. Current educational leaders of a school may not have come from a diverse background and therefore do not have a deep understanding of why one student may act in what they may consider an inappropriate manner.
The Department of Education is trying to speed up the movement for further skilled educators. States are going to be reviewing their efforts towards better teachers (Ed teams to help states address teacher quality, 2003). The government is finding ways to be able to test teacher quality. Schools are giving pay initiatives to educators who work above and beyond (Dobbs, 2003). This will hopefully make teachers work and try harder to be better teachers.
Since the court outlawed prayer, the nation has been in steady moral decline. Former secretary of education William Bennett revealed in his cultured indexes that between 1960 and1990 there was a steady moral decline. During this period divorce doubled, teenage pregnancy went up 200%, teen suicide increased 300%, child abuse reached an all time high, violent crime went up 500% and abortion increased 1000% . Morals must be taught and they can not be taught properly without religion, because most of the strong moral beliefs stem from religion such as the Ten Commandments. There is a strong correlation between the expulsion of prayer from our schools and the decline in morality.
In addition, education about the HIV virus should be taught at schools and in the community, in terms of how to prevent from getting the virus, and how to treat it. By emphasizing proper nutrition and health care amongst men, women and children, Ukraine’s birth rate will exceed death rates, ensuring a steady increase in population. In conclusion, you, the Ukrainian government, must create jobs, and educate your citizens about proper health care in order to increase your country’s population. If your government follows these simple guidelines, Purcell Consulting will guarantee your population to increase, and continue to grow for the ages to come. Works Cited Kuzio, Taras.
Our country has a problem with education and students dropping out of school, but if we have more academic competitions which bring out the best in students, we will have a lower percentage of dropouts and the newer generations will have the power to advance the world. Academic competitions are being used all across the world as a tool to identify the most hardworking, creative and talented students. This process takes place outside the curriculum that is mandated by the school programs. “Academic Competitions can expand the scope and depth of content, allowing readers to explore subject areas beyond the opportunities available in a regular classroom.” (Debank 3). Competitions are used by many teachers at the root level to develop the talents of their students.
