past few years, there has been focus on mathematics and science education and
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Since President
Obamcame to power, it seems that almost everyone uses “how important
mathematics and science education is and / or we need our children to help us
create our future STEM workforce”. It seems like more resources have been
put into improving mathematics and science education programs. However, with
all this attention to mathematics and science, people really don’t pay
attention to how and why we arrive at this point in our education and
If you pay
attention to the economies of the richest countries in the world; they have
strong education system in which there are children excel academically in all
or most disciplines. The reason why education is linked to strong economy is
because with education you can have workforce that has the skills to work in
your economy. When the United States has strong economy and is global leader,
we have great education system. However, the condition of our current education
system is that students do not graduate with skills for jobs that are currently
available in our economy. There are various reasons for this, but my main
theory behind this is not enough children or parents think about their future
because it relates to connecting their education with their future careers.
when I was growing up, I remember always knowing that I would get good grades
so I could go to college and get good job. Even my peers, who don’t have
aspirations to go to college, have plans in mind for career, work or business
after graduating high school. However, K-12 students and parents are currently
losing that connection to their education and their place in the future workforce;

Recently the National
Association of Realtors is offering a new Short Sales and Foreclosure
Certification Program through their Real Estate Buyer’s Council which will
train agents in many areas of Real Estate that have been affected by the
This platform is
designed to target specific issues such as foreclosures, short-sales, bank
owned properties also known as real estate owned or REO for short. The
regulations and state by state specific information is covered in the new
program as well.
Agents from all over
the country are noticing that a large percentage of sales are falling into
these categories, which until recently had been more of an anomaly than a
common occurrence. Couple that with multiple offers on most deals then the
complication demands a more savvy and educated real estate agent.
abbreviated SFR is a one day education program completed by agents either in a
real classroom or online in form of Webinars. NAR encourages agents to expand
their current education to include the knowledge of these distressed sales, due
to the expansion of the market in that direction. Also due to the more
complicated negotiations of some of these deals, NAR also recommends to
seller’s and buyer’s to seek agents certified or familiar with the short-sale.
In other words, buyers at least ask the agent how many of the REO deals they’ve
had, or foreclosure deals, if that is the position you find yourself in.
Due to the increased
tax and legal requirements in many states for these types of sales and loans,
buyers and sellers are absolutely better equipped to enter the market with an
agent that has already written these types of deals, one who has the on the job
kind of training. But the certification program should be sufficient to … Read more
Section 504 is a
Federal Law that provides for accommodations for people with disabilities. The
law requires that any entity receiving federal funding must accommodate people
with disabilities. Public schools fall under this category. The accommodations
must provide for access to the program. So, what does that mean? Well, that
means that any student with a disability or suspected disability should be
provided with accommodations or services to allow that student to access and
make progress in the program.
I have worked with
many students that are on Section 504 Plans. Yet when I start to talk to their
parents about the plan, many of them don’t know what it is or what it’s
supposed to do. They sometimes think it is an IEP (Individual Education
Program). It’s not. The 504 plan only provides accommodations and sometimes services
to allow the student access. For example: If a student has a physical
disability and is confined to a wheelchair, the school would provide ramps,
elevators, adaptive equipment (wheelchair accessible desk) and services could
be physical therapy or an assistant to help the student to navigate throughout
the school. There is no educational component to the plan as there is in an
IEP. If the disability affects the student’s ability to learn and make progress
in the curriculum and the student needs specialized instruction, then the
student should be on an IEP.
Some accommodations that can be found
on a 504 plan are:
- Extra time
on assignments and tests
- Extra set
assignments broken down
- Extra time
to get to and from classes
- Use of a
This list is just a
small sample of accommodations that can be listed on a plan. The accommodations
should assist … Read more
california department of education credential lookupParents who have their kids in particular education or who have had their child evaluated for particular education solutions will quickly attend what is named a multi-disciplinary meeting or “MET” meeting. I have some expertise with these segregation policies of education. Some of it is very good and some of it is not so very good. You see, I have been a self-contained teacher on and off all through the years in multiple environments in self-contained classrooms in public higher schools, middle schools and elementary schools. I have also taught in multiple special education behavioral self-contained schools that completely separated these troubled students with disabilities in managing their behavior from their mainstream peers by putting them in completely different buildings that had been sometimes even in different towns from their homes, friends and peers.

These lesson plans have been developed with the assist of parents so that disabled young children had as much of a standard education as achievable. The EHA was renamed the Folks with Disabilities Education Act (Concept) in 1990.

I homeschool and my youngsters are tested every single year by the state. There are a lot of various opinions on how adequate an education a homeschooler recieves. I assume this is anticipated as we are so various. What works for some will not function for others. I never agree with all you said, but I enjoyed it quite significantly.
