    In other words, what have I learned through my education? Have I been trained in one special area or have I gained an education not only in one area, but also in learning about myself and who I am? According to Webster’s dictionary, education is defined by the development and training of one’s mind, character, and skills, as by instruction, study, or example and the knowledge and skill resulting from such instruction and training. By this definition, one might argue that being educated means that you are trained or specialized to do only one thing. I believe as well as many others I have talked to about this subject that an education constitutes far more than just being trained or specialized to do one thing. I do not believe you can confine education to a single definition from a dictionary. I will be the first to admit that certain majors or degrees will set you up to be one-dimensional and specialized for one thing. However, just because you majored in that does not mean you do not receive an overall education different from that of your major. An education is more or less just as important. You see there is so much more to education than just training to be a biologist, a doctor, or a…

    Your lifeblood, I like that image, melodrama and all. I agree university students should have more opportunities earlier in their education to try out teaching. When I finally decided to go to university full-time, I blindly went into a physics degree, only because I was good at it while I was upgrading. But, I actually wanted to be a lawyer or a teacher. So, since the JD program is an after degree, I thought I 'd start with teacher and then if I could do well enough in school I 'd write the…

    Education produces students who enter the world confidently to challenge the ideas of others as well as their own. Students find answers about the world which can not be taught completely in a classroom. After all, “education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire” (Yeats). Eventually, the build up of memorized information will be lost in the overflow, but the motivation and passion to learn will be fueled infinitely. Therefore, education in schools should not be about the meaningless work…

    In 2016, nearly everyone involved in the education system (parents,students, teachers, researchers) can tell that things are changing, fast. As a young educator-in-training, I see these shifts in real life each week, as I compare my own experiences with those I had growing up. I currently teach 8th graders at Riverside Middle School when I myself was an 8th grader around 8 years ago, and the difference I see is stark. Each student now has a chromebook, which they use frequently and efficiently.…

    financially, I always just assume that is the way life was. While my father was still in the military we did not have to worry about losing a roof over our head; we only had that concern after my dad was medically discharged from the Army. For as long as I can remember I had always had to work a little harder and put in a little extra time when it came to academic endeavors. While my dad was in the military, my learning difficulties were blamed on the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck at…

    keeping in tradition, has for the third year in the row ranked last among all states and Washington DC in education. Now this won 't come as a surprise to many, with the lackluster funding, and scandal that continuously define Nevada 's education system. Yet nevertheless, this isn 't the kind of news Nevadans want to hear. And with the current debate over Core Curriculum, and the several education-related initiatives on this year 's 2016 ballot; the conversation over education has never been so…

    As Napoleon Hill once said, “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” In order for education to be successful and valued, it must be driven by passion within a student. For schools to implement curriculums intended to help students to pass standardized tests, as well as to mainly focus on college preparation, though necessary to today’s education standards, can often create boredom and a decrease in the willingness to learn. Each and every person has their own natural ability and…

    really get a “good” education? While I may not be a qualified academic or teacher, as a student I have observed throughout my learning years that education is often about expanding knowledge and establishing comparative systems. Whether we like to admit it or not, if this is usually the case, how does an individual make their unique mark on the world or land that job prospect when they are constantly required to compete…
