How Will A Post-Secondary Education Help Me Achieve My Goals In Life? A post-secondary education is one of the most important periods of a person’s life. It demonstrates the effort left in every assignment through the years in high school. It doesn’t ensure you that you will be receiving a degree because if you make a mistake everything can be lost, but it is a great opportunity to show your potential and how far you would like to get in life. The education of a college helps you to achieve any goal in life by giving you the degree you deserve to work everywhere you would like. Through my years in middle and high school I had been focused just in one thing; study hard to become a great Architect. It is a dream since I was ten years old to participate in making designs of new houses and buildings. A secondary education will help me to increase my knowledge, be independent, work even harder, learn amazing things from others, and make sure of what I really wish in life and what my goals are. I will not have my friends to pass me homework or assignments that I forget to do just because of the movie from last night, and that will make me responsible. Attending to a college will make me realize that teachers are not the same and if I don’t worry about myself they won’t do it either. Everything will be different because my parents are not going to be there for me to defend my rights or petitions. Having a college degree will open many doors and opportunities in my life. I would be able to buy anything that I have ever wished and it will be a pleasure for me to help my mother without having to say “I don’t have enough money”. One of my main goals is to construct and design an enormous house for my mother and family members. A post-secondary education will help me to offer my children a better life and education; also I will have the satisfaction that all my efforts…...

Key Developments in Secondary Education in Ireland Between 1922 and 1967.

...Secondary schools were established to foster the English language and behaviour as well as protestant beliefs. In the class structured view of education which prevailed, secondary education was seen as a concern for the middle classes, who if they saw fit, should buy it as a commodity, just like any personal goods. Following the establishment of the Irish Free State in1922 the mode of state financing was altered to capitation grants for pupils in ‘recognised schools’ and incremental salaries for ‘recognised’ secondary school teachers. However the schools continued as purely private denominational institutions- free to conduct their own affairs once they complied with the rules for recognised status. The state established no ordinary secondary schools and the initiative was purely in voluntary hands. It was not until 1964 that the first state grant was given for capital expenditure on secondary schools.

This paper describes data indexes in database management system and the types of data indexes and how the data organized. It focuses on the secondary index in the database and a secondary index on a non key field implemented. Index Terms—Database Indexes, Indexes, Secondary Indexes. (keywords) database system would look up an index to find on which disk blocks the corresponding record resides, and then fetch the disk block, to get the account record. Keeping a sorted list of account numbers would not work well on every large databases with millions of accounts, since the index would itself be very big; further, even through keeping the index sorted reduces the search time, finding an account can still be further time-consuming. Instead, more I. Introduction An index for a file in a database system works in much the same way as the index in any normal books. If we want to learn a particular topic (described by a word or phrase) in this book, we can search for the topic in the index at the back of the book, find the pages where it occurs, and then read the pages to find the information we are looking for. The words in the index are in sorted order, making it easy to find the word we are looking for. Moreover, the index much smaller than the book, further reducing the effort needed to find the......

Secondary Education in Puerto Rico

...Amanda Morris Consumer Behavior 10 December 2012 Higher Education in Puerto Rico Amanda Morris Consumer Behavior 10 December 2012 Higher Education in Puerto Rico Puerto Rico is an interesting country when looking in comparison with the United States. They have been largely influenced by the US in culture, economics, and education. Because they have had aspirations of becoming the 51st state, they have historically tried to mainstream their culture in tandem with cultural trends in the mainland US. The interesting thing about that is that Puerto Rican people are fiercely proud of their cultural identity, and their heritage. They refer to themselves as Puerto Rican, even when they are second and third generation United States’ citizens. They have fought to keep Spanish in their schools instead of strict English. They hold themselves to even higher standards of education in many aspects. This leads to some interesting nuances in Puerto Rican education and the choices people make when it comes to choosing a college. This paper seeks to briefly examine how consumer behavior relates to higher education in Puerto Rico. Economics play a large factor, as well as strong involvement from the government, and US cultural influences in how and why secondary education choices are made for the people of Puerto Rico. To being with, when thinking about Puerto Rico, one must first look to what makes the country unique. A good starting place would be its basic......

Impact of Secondary Socialization

...educational purposes there is usually a clash of cultures and through interaction and new socialization it is possible to create a new culture where these people can learn to co-exist with their differences, they learn from each other and learn to integrate new norms and values with their existing ones. This is known as resocialization or secondary socialization. Secondary socialization takes place outside the home. It is where children and adults learn how to act in a way that is appropriate for the situations that they are in. schools require very different behavior from the home. Students act according to new rules. Educational institutions play a very important role in secondary socialization. In fact Parsons suggested the schools often bridge the gap between primary and secondary socialization. During primary socialization they learn the particular values of their family circle but at school the children are exposed to the values of the community and universal values and they begin to form relationship with non-family members. There is large multi-cultural international community in KNUST as a result of the high standard of education(KNUST 2013). International and national students have developed a friendly union over the years and co-exist as a family. The percentage of foreign students could get as high as 10%(KNUST 2012). These foreign students come with different cultures , influence national students and in turn are influenced by the different cultures of......

Co-Teaching in Urban Secondary School Districts to Meet the Needs of All Teachers and Learners: Implications for Teacher Education Reform

...Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) reauthorized in 2004 (Pub. L. No. 108-466) and the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 (Pub. L. No. 107–110), require that students with increasingly diverse learning characteristics have access to and achieve high academic performance in the general education curriculum. The changing demographics of the United States have also played a role in diverse learning characteristics of the American learners in classrooms today. With an educational system that serves approximately 76,355,000 students, 30,982,000 or 40.58% are of an ethnically diverse background and 5% of school age children have a disability (U.S. Census Bureau, 2008). These changing legal requirements and student demographics in United States educational systems combine pointing to the need for increased collaborative planning and teaching among school personnel attempting to comply with these legal mandates to serve all students fairly and equitably in general education classrooms. Co-teaching is an approach that helps educators meet both IDEIA and NCLB mandates, and is defined as “two or more people sharing responsibility for teaching some or all of the students assigned to a classroom” (Villa, Thousand, & Nevin, 2008, p. 5). In schools within the United States, co-teaching often involves general education and special education teachers working together in one classroom and used as a supplementary aid and service that can be brought to general education to......

Secondary Education in Singapore

...Department Educational System Of SINGAPORE (Group Project) Secondary education in Singapore Most secondary schools in Singapore offer 4-year or 5-year courses leading up to the GCE O-level examination. A notable exception are the Integrated Programme (IP) schools, which offer a 6-year course leading up to the GCE A-level examination or the International Baccalaureate examination. Autonomous schools have more autonomy as compared to other government-run secondary schools to plan their own curriculum and activities. However, such schools may charge a SGD$3 to SGD$18 miscellaneous fee on top of the regular school fees paid by all students attending government-run secondary schools. Independent schools are granted autonomy to design their own school curriculum as well as other school programmes. They are also allowed to choose their own students and set their own school fees. Their school fees are therefore usually higher than that of government-run schools, though such schools and the Ministry of Education offer some scholarships to offset the school fees. Program for Secondary Education Based on results of the PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination), students are placed in different secondary education tracks or streams: "Special", "Express", "Normal (Academic)", or "Normal (Technical)". Singaporeans are forbidden to attend international schools on the island without Ministry of Education permission. "Special" and "Express" They are the four-year courses......

Post Secondary Education in Prisons

...Post Secondary Education In Prisons: Today many Americans are facing economic and government uncertainty. With the growing prison population and increased recidivism rate, it is time for a change in correctional policies. To spark the change in correctional policies recent studies have indicated that post secondary education programs have a significant correlation to reducing recidivism rates, prison costs, and prison population issues (Chappell, Cathryn A. 2004). Currently America makes up 5% of the world’s population, but accounts for more than 25% of prisoners incarcerated across other nations (Carson, A. & Sabol, W. 2012). This is a result of the political stance “get tough on crime”, a campaign that was started in the 1980’s that focused law enforcement agencies on combating drug crime (Spangenberg, 2004). This political stance is still prevalent today and has caused several problems for correctional facilities across the country. Prison facilities are unable to accommodate prisoners because of the lack of space for prisoners and lack of funding for beneficial programming” ( Erisman & Contrado 2005). Furthermore, prisoners are released from jail with no formal education or qualified job skills which typically leads them to resort back to criminal activities for economic gain; which causes high recidivism rates (Institute for Higher Education Policy 1994). Despite these issues Maryland and its neighboring states have began to implement cost effective Post......

Secondary Research

...AO3: Secondary Research- Introduction- Starbucks is a global coffee company that currently has a relatively small product range. They offer a group of different coffees, snacks, cold drinks and even coffee accessories (merchandise). However, after doing a lot of research I feel that they have a gap in their market. I feel that adding a food hall to their chain of stores would be successful. This could potentially be very risky for the business as it means they are entering a market they don’t really have any experience in with products they aren’t used to. The food halls will not be an extension onto the existing stores; they will be a completely different brand, following in the footsteps of John Lewis and Waitrose. Though, it won’t be completely rebranded – I will still use the same logo and colour scheme as this would draw customers as it is already a well-recognized global brand. As Starbucks is already quite a high-end coffee store, the food halls would follow in the same direction to keep up the “high quality” image. This means that the competitors will be the likes of Marks and Spencer’s, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. Using this information the food halls would have to appeal to the target audience of middle aged families. Though, Starbuck’s is different as it has a huge loyal younger audience; people ages 16-25. Students fall into this age bracket – to ensure that they are able to shop in the food halls there will have to be strategies in place such as a “student......

Secondary Trauma

... Secondary Trauma So often, we focus on our clients and not enough on ourselves. The books read remind me to be mindful of self-care. Beginning with Dr. Wicks who is an engaging writer. My perception is that he is very caring, and that is revealed in his work. The seeds of secondary stress and the seeds of true passionate involvement in the fields of counseling, psychology and social work are actually the same seeds.(Wicks, 2008) Secondary trauma or Burn out is a challenge for many individuals the field of counseling. Secondary trauma is commonly referred to as "the stress resulting from helping or wanting to help a traumatized or suffering person. Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when a Clinician feels overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands. As their stress continues, they may begin to lose the interest or motivation that led them to take on a certain role in the first place. Burnout reduces Clinician productivity and drains their energy, leaving them feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, suspicious, and resentful. Eventually, they may feel like they have nothing more to give. Most Clinician has days when they feel bored, overloaded, or unappreciated. When the dozen balls they keep in the air are not noticed, let alone rewarded. When dragging themselves out of bed requires the Secondary Trauma determination of Superman.

Is the Cost of Post-Secondary Education in the United States Too High?

...Bart Van Kerkhove Instructor: Andrew McCullough ENG 100 2 May 2008 Is the cost of post-secondary education in the United States too high? Everybody knows that the cost of higher education in the United States can be substantial. As a result a considerable number of students have to take up a part-time or even full-time job so they can cover not only tuition, but also rent and every day expenses. In some cases parents (or the students themselves) have to take (often big) loans to fulfill the financial needs. This work will research some issues that may arise surrounding this matter. First of all it will examine the general discrepancy in tuition between the United States and some other countries. Therefore I want to compare the general tuition cost at different universities worldwide. The following section will investigate in what way the life of the students and/or the parents may be affected by having to make financial and personal sacrifices to be able to pay for the tuition. In conclusion I will raise the question to what extent a country’s government is responsible to educate its population. Should post-secondary education be made more affordable, and how could this be accomplished? In order to compare tuition between several countries, only averages and overall figures are supplied. In reality the costs can be very divers, even when putting side by side universities located in a single country (like the United States). The idea is to......

More Girls Are Finishing Primary School, but They Are Facing Challenges in Accessing and Completing Secondary Education, a Critical Source of Skills in Changing Economies.

...proper education. From my point of view, the proper education is defined as a good combination of primary and second education. The girls’ secondary education is a quite problematic topic, especially when they finish primary school and are on the threshold of starting their secondary education or suffering from life full of bad surprises. The reason why secondary education of girls is of crucial importance is associated with its dramatic effect on the economy and a wider society. Thus, referring to the idea that girls’ education is advantageous not only for individuals but also for the whole society, I would like to express my thoughts about its economic and social impacts, the benefits and costs of both educated and uneducated girls, the barriers girls face in accessing secondary education and to give recommendations on how to improve this critical situation. In today’s modern world, it is not surprising to encounter women who work in the top level positions with high salaries, run their own businesses or drive cars. There is no doubt that they can substitute men in many circumstances. However, this state can be quite different and adverse depending on the country even within the regions of the same country. One of the apparent reasons which leads to such differences is secondary education. Despite the fact that many girls graduate from primary schools, only few of them pass to the next level of education. At......

Economic Indicators & Post-Secondary Education

...patterns. Various economic indicators are released daily, weekly, monthly and/or quarterly which can result in an enormous amount of data to go through. Post-Secondary colleges and universities rather than wade through all data reports and economic indicators can select a few macroeconomic indicators to assist in meeting the challenges of the market to provide a quality and competitively priced education. Significant indicators used in this paper to aid in the decision making process for sustainability and growth for post-secondary education are inflation, the unemployment rate, interest rates and consumer confidence. This topic is of interest because for the past 35 years holding a four-year college degree has given workers a distinct advantage in the U.S. labor market. There is usually a large wage gap between college-educated working adults and those with high school degrees. With technological advances in the workplace and a growing reliance on computers, skilled workers are needed to apply for these technological positions. However, based on new trends the U.S. labor market now favors workers who hold a graduate degree (Valletta, 2015). It is because of these new trends we want to focus on the need for quality education and economic factors that will influence it. Economic Indicators & Post-Secondary Education Introduction Macroeconomic indicators are tools used by organizations and their leaders to help make decisions concerning the welfare, stability......
