of education is that of equality, particularly why working class families generally attain less educationally than their middle class peers. The British government has been trying to make the education system of this country a meritocracy since around the start of industrialisation. However, research shows that each new policy introduced has failed families of the lower classes in some way. My aim in this essay is to discuss what extent the education system of this country is a meritocracy
for the arrival of school. Tina and Lynn have lived in the same neighborhood all of their lives. They both love to roller-skate down the street, shrieking with laughter. They like to collect shiny marbles and trade secrets while they play jacks. Tina and Lynn are the best of friends, oblivious to the fact that each is of a different skin color.

democracy. This involves teaching them the rudiments of knowledge required for reading a newspaper (or political web site), watching the news on television, and understanding what is going on in the world. Civic education also concerns itself with attitudes; for example, teaching students to have a healthy skepticism for what goes on in government, but grounding this skepticism in a reality that does not hold unrealistic expectations for government or its officials (see Hibbing and Theiss-Morse 1995

In doing so, the analysis will scrutinize the change process and outcome of implementation against the theoretical lens offered by Garry Hoban’s change frame, Michael Fullan’s factors for implementation and insights into change, as well as Evan’s substance of change. Using these theories to interpret the variables that affect the process and outcome of change, I hope to evaluate the importance of the complexity paradigm in the context of school change. In other
"Constructivism is basically a theory of learning that attempts to show that knowledge can and can only be generated from experience" Steffe and Thompson (2000:6). It suggests that building one’s own meaning and understanding requires an active involvement in the meaning-making process. Students develop knowledge through an active construction process, not through the passive reception of information (Brophy, 1992). In other words, the learning process is not a method of spoon-feeding in which the
is defined as any school program that uses two languages. In a more theoretical sense it is any educational program whose ultimate goal is for the participants to be fully versed in all facets of both languages (i.e., able to listen, speak , read, and write in both languages). The definition of a coordinated, developmental bilingual approach has emphasized the goal of being equally fluid in both languages. Realistically, this has not been the goal for most K-12 bilingual schools in the United States

It holds that humans and the earth are interconnected and seeks both to explore the ways in which literature portrays this bond as well as advocates activism to help protect it. It is one of the more modern schools of literary theory but is a firmly established form of criticism, especially with the growing concern for the consequences of climate change caused by the imbalance between human consumption and environmental capacity. Ecocriticism asserts that humans
