Most parents dream of giving their children the best possible education. However an education – primary, secondary and tertiary – costs money. Parents of a child born in 2006 can pay approximately $250K for a child's lifetime education according to the latest research from the Australian Scholarships Group. And costs are constantly on the rise. Investing in Your Child's Future is aimed at parents and future parents, grandparents and other family members, and covers children's education from pre-school to tertiary studies. It is designed to show readers how they can secure and contribute to their children's future and can benefit from a higher education at the institution of their choice, without sacrificing their lifestyle or financial security, and regardless of their income. Investing in Your Child's Future shows readers how they can finance all, or some, of their children's education by planning ahead, implementing simple strategies and saving money as early and as regularly as possible. When your children are young, it's easy to delay funding their education as it is not an immediate expense. However, education is a major expense, regardless of whether you choose a private or public education, and the sooner you start saving, the more money you will accumulate, and the sooner you can stop worrying about your child's future.
Maritime Education and Training (MET)in Kenya is still at its nascent stage hence facing various challenges including human and technological resources.As the STCW 78 Convention as amended seeks to standardize training and certification of seafarers,this dissertation focuses on the “T” in STCW Convention,hence it delves into Section A-I/6, A-I/8 and A-I/12. Further,analysis of the Convention and data collected through questionnaires,interviews and observation to supplement the literature review and draw feasible conclusions exposes the link between human and technological resources and their impact on standards of training and competence.The findings from the data analysis depict a deficiency in human and technological resources in Kenyan MET,hence an urgent need to develop these resources.In conclusion,the dissertation provides suggestions of good practices from global MET institutions drawn from the literature review and deductions from the data analysis.A matrix is provided with proposed short term and long term responses to the challenges that Kenyan MET faces.If adopted, these responses could augment implementation of sustainable MET,hence globally competitive labour force.

Some of the smartest, most successful people in the country didn't finish college. None of them learned their most critical skills at an institution of higher education. And like them, most of what you'll need to learn to be successful you'll have to learn on your own, outside of school. Michael Ellsberg set out to fill in the missing pieces by interviewing a wide range of millionaires and billionaires who don't have college degrees, including fashion magnate Russell Simmons and Facebook founding president Sean Parker. This book is your guide to developing practical success skills in the real world: how to find great mentors, build a world-class network, make your work meaningful (and your meaning work), build the brand of you, and more. Learning these skills is a necessary addition to any education, whether you're a high school dropout or graduate of Harvard Law School.
The book uses the 2003 Mongolian Living Standard Measurement Survey and 2004 Informal Sector Household Survey in Mongolia and 1999, 2003 and 2007 Tajik Living Standard Surveys data on earnings, years of schooling and highest educational attainment to compute the rates of returns to schooling and all levels of educational qualifications for wage earners and self-employed individuals aged 15-65 by gender, generation, marital status, ethnicity, location, sectors and firms’ ownership in Mongolia and Tajikistan. The study estimates the Mincerian wage equation taking into account endogeniety and sample selection bias. Furthermore, this dissertation research explores how returns to schooling differ for individuals in the lower, medium and upper part of the wage distribution using quantile regression methodology and to what extent education exacerbates or reduces inequality in wages in Mongolia and Tajikistan. The estimated rate of return to schooling for Mongolia in the early 2000s ranged from 5.6 percent to 6.5 percent for wage earners and over 7 percent for self-employed individuals.

Education is a good tool to change the society. Education in general and quality education in particular has a prominent role in the process of development. It is possible to preserve culture and heritage and inculcate values through education for better life of human beings. Education has multi-dimensional roles. Education is power. Through Education it is possible to solve all types of problems in the society viz., poverty, illiteracy, alcoholism, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, environmental pollution, ill-health, malnutrition, corruption and terrorism. According to Swami Vivekananda… ‘Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there undigested, all your life.’ Education for him means that process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, and intellect is sharpened, as a result of which one can stand on one’s own feet. We want such type of education for all.

Over the past 100 years attitudes to sex and gender equality have shifted to welcome female liberation; however the taboo of female sexuality still remains. Male power continues to dominate appropriate forms of femininity, from appearance to behaviour and sexuality. This dissertation seeks to evaluate the extent to which the male gaze is internalised within the culture of higher education institutions, which are perceived to promote individualisation and sexual freedom, and how exactly the male gaze works to police female sexuality. Modern undergraduate culture holds conflicting expectations of female sexuality, high sexualisation of younger generations encourages promiscuity of women on the same level as lad culture, yet double standards assume judgement for this form of sexuality. This dissertation helps students of sociology and feminism to explore how traditional gender binaries, such as the madonna/whore complex continue to dominate modern institutions, and understand the how femininity faces continuous paradoxical expectations. This leads us to consider the important question of how the future of female sexuality will develop?
How can we explain the gap between grand visions of E-Learning and Virtual Universities and their modest manifestations? Based on a detailed case study, this dissertation claims that the underlying dynamics of E-Learning in Higher Education is that of "Vision Erosion" in which visions are eroded by existing power structures and institutional arrangements. This work uses Actor Network Theory to study the relations between Higher Education and Technology, and comes out with surprising and insightful results. A "must read" for anyone interested in the present, and future, of Universities.

The genocide of 1994 resulted in the immediate death of more than 800,000 people. The loss of more than 10% of the population of Rwanda in less than 100 days has been called the most ruthless genocide of modern times. In an effort to rebuild from the utter destruction of the violence, Rwandan officials and educators turned to their school system as a key leverage point in reconstructing a nation. On a continent struggling to move schools towards reform, Rwanda is a unique case. Three key initiatives form the framework for this historical dissertation: 1) student-centered pedagogy, 2) language, and 3) enrollment. Those three form the structure that has enabled Rwanda to rebuild and push ahead in efforts to establish an education system that will drive long-term development efforts from within.

Many changes have occurred in education throughout the years. However, one thing has remained constant and that is the fact that some children require extra help such as tutoring to be successful.

Therefore, I decided to conduct research on this topic for my dissertation.
With more and more focus on accountability and standards, a lot of effort has been placed on assessment at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, with very little attention given to what happens in early childhood. Just like a house needs a sound foundation in order to withstand the test of time, so assessment at early childhood needs your support. Carefully planned and executed assessment can lay the foundation for future intervention, critical to your child’s survival. Drawing from over 40 years experience and having written at all levels of the education system; pre-primary, primary, secondary, higher education and adult education, the author provides you with strategic, comprehensive, multi-sourced, purpose-driven assessment instruments that are culturally, linguistically and individually appropriate and would provide ongoing information about your child across developmental domains. This is the most practical ‘how-to’, ‘go-to’, ‘turn-back-the-clock’ book for early childhood providers, caregivers, practitioners, specialists, administrators, parents, guardians and significant others.

This dissertation entitled as “Rise and Spread of English in British India" examined the history of rise and spread of English in British India from an Indian perspective. The re-reading will provide the current scenario of English as a subject of study in the independent India. Lots of changes it had witnessed from the day it had been dragged into India due to the acceptance of Macaulayan Minute on Education (1835). Macaulay had favoured English to be introduced in India just because the British needed the clerks for administration and mediators to carry out their orders in British India. Taking Macaulay’s Minutes on Education (1835) as a primary resource, this dissertation critically compares it with gradually emerged trends in the field of English studies in post-independent India. The re-reading from Macaulay to Viswanathan and Alan Durant will produce a link through which we can easily connect the changes occurred in the field of English in India from its very limited area ‘English Literature’ to the fresh and emerging area ‘English studies’ without any fix boundaries and limitations.

Community psychologists have an opportunity to develop relationships with individuals and their families and develop a longitudinal view of the experience of mental illness. This is often not afforded to other health professionals who see people in acute phases of their illness. These perspectives and associations can be used to provide quality improvement to the sector through advocacy and education. Medical educators are also seeking new educational experiences that foster both quality learning and postive attitudes to people with mental illness. This dissertation explores the formation of an educational tutorial using a dialogue based methodology and the narratives of local families to augment the learning and clinical placements of under graduate medical students. The aims of the project were to establish whether this education experience would affect students’attitudes to people with mental illness and their experiences of their mental health placement. Outcomes were in reviewing the formation of attitudes to people with mental illness and in what constitutes quality contact and learning in education settings.
Revision with unchanged content. This book is based on a doctoral dissertation in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies that addresses the gaps of access and quality in higher education between high-income countries and low-to-middle income countries, and the role that Internet and computer technologies play in association with those gaps. It addresses the question whether the gaps will widen or narrow over time. It utilizes a mixed methodology, analyzing national-level gaps in Internet and computer technology through quantitative analyses of public data on telecommunications and Internet connectivity. It uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to analyze the diffusion and impact of Internet and computer technology at the institutional and classroom levels. Ultimately, the answer as to whether the gaps will widen or narrow depends upon strategic decisions made at the national, institutional, and classroom levels.
