Are you a parent who are constantly struggling to upkeep or improve your current lifestyle? You are always trying to improve your sales or commissions or putting more effort to get the better promotion at work. You are doing all of these just to increase your earnings. But what are these extra earnings for?

Of course, you would want to get into the best neighborhoods with the best schools. You really care about your children’s education. But doing so will cause you to spend a lot, sometimes way more than you can afford.

Actually, one of the best solutions is to teach your kids at home. What is this? This is called the home-schooling method. It is often free and more convenient. You don’t have to worry about sending him or her to school every morning (sometimes rushing to do so). You have complete control over his or her education in many aspects.

Often times, parents will blame the school for poor academic results. They should instead be more proactive by getting more involved with their children. Putting more effort and time will bear results in the long term. Remember, you are bringing up an individual, your own offspring to becoming a better and more productive adult. It is no easy task for you as a parent.

Of course, the intention of earning more money to send your children to the best education institutes might pay off. It is just that the home-schooling was proven and time-tested to be effective as a whole, compared to just sending kids to school.

In conclusion, giving your kids the attention they need is crucial. Living within your means is all the more important. Even if you can afford it, consider home-schooling. There is tremendous value in spending more time and giving more attention to your children.…

Education Scholarships Consider Varied Skills

Are you a person who’s hard to argue with? While that kind of tenacity may not get you many friends, it could go a long way towards getting a college scholarship. They are always on the look out for good debaters, and not just to help the institution win local tourneys.

It must be understood that debate is a lot more than two brawlers trying to intimidate each other before coming to blows. Debate is actually a formalized form of argument that utilizes logic, evidence gathering, presentation and a number of other analytical skills to convince a panel of judges, an audience or some other governing force to take their side over their opponent.

Finally, a good debater must be ready to take whatever side he’s handed, whether he believes it or not. Like a good lawyer representing a client, a good debater is there for the position and not his own opinion. By this it means being equally able to take on the pro and the con, in spite of personal beliefs.

In real life, probably the most striking example of debate is in a court room. Top notch trial lawyers are also good debaters. They can present, eliminate or arrange evidence in such a manner that, sometimes sadly, the innocent get convicted or the guilty go free. Most importantly, they then use their verbal skills to convince a judge or jury to take their side in the debate. The same can be said of Congress, both the House and the Senate.

Debating skills are also quite valuable outside of the world of law and politics. In the world of business, one must be ready to defend a proposal or business plan at the drop of a hat. Good debating skills can be quite handy when it comes to winning a sales presentation. The same can come in handy when it comes to just about any other professional white collar occupation.

To top it off, it’s highly possible to get scholarship money from one’s skills. There are a number of organizations out there that will award as much as $150,000 over a four-year academic career. The largest organizer of these competitions is the National Forensic League, who often grants $10,000 scholarships on a regional basis. There are many other similar leagues out there.

The primary qualifications are that the applicant usually is a high school or college student. They must be familiar with the style of debate, e.g., Parliamentary, Public Debate, Policy, and Classical, that they will be debating in. From there, they must get involved in debates that offer their share of scholarships and/or grants. If your school has a debating society, that’s even better, as the person in charge of that society more than likely knows a number of these groups.…

Education - A Bright Spot in a Dreary Economy

image source

In this downward spiraling economy that we’re all stuck in, one of the few things that is going up (aside from anger, frustration and debt) is college enrollment. Evidently a significant number of people think that this is a good time to get some more education under their belts to ensure they’ll be better able to compete in the job market when it does finally improve. This is smart thinking. Rather than spend days and weeks and months being depressed and despondent about lack of work and opportunity, it’s a wise move to take advantage of the “down time” by doing something that will be profitable in the long run.

President Obama shares this view and has enthusiastically called for American’s to step up and become pro-active and better educated. In an address to Congress given earlier this year he made the case that three quarters of the fastest growing occupations in the country require more than a high school diploma and yet only about half of our citizenry have even graduated from high school.

In Utah, where I live, the state community colleges are being inundated with more applications than they can handle. Enrollment for the past year is up more than 12 percent. While those numbers are encouraging, the downside is that the funding for these colleges has dwindled to the point that many of these schools are needing to reduce classes and expenditures making it impossible to meet the demands of a growing enrollment. It’s a catch 22.

Another development in this picture is that due to the shrinking amount of money that we’re all dealing with, many who would normally choose to attend a four year college simply don’t have that luxury anymore and have come to the realization that for further education they’ll need to look to community colleges and technical schools. That is not a bad thing. Attending a community college does not have to mean you’ll get less of an education. There are hundreds of fine, accredited community colleges boasting highly qualified and capable teachers for a multitude of pertinent subjects. A lot of what learns in school, ANY school, has as much to do with the commitment and desire only brings to the experience as to the qualification of the teacher. Another plus for these community schools is that often the class sizes are much smaller which is a definite plus for the students.

The government has vowed to make needed changes and improvements in our educational system and this is something that needs to happen. Just today at a cabinet meeting, President Obama promised to create and assure funds for 135,000 education jobs, including teachers. That is good news for those seeking to take advantage of these difficult times and make the most of the opportunities that are presently available.…

A Career Choice in the Field of Science

It is no strange fact that the most immediate problem facing the world today is energy (or rather lack of), and like most economic problems, it requires a solution, lest the world plunder into a depression. Today’s economy is tied into tomorrow’s future and thus, a career choice in the field of science appropriately links to a college major, an eventual career path, and ultimately a contribution towards the world’s economic prosperity. In short, the future rest in “going green” and anyone pushing against this notion is sure to struggle in terms of wealth and employment.

As portrayed by the media, gas prices are at record breaking highs and as the need for oil increases, the economy falters. Admittedly, there have been proposed solutions; however these solutions are predominantly short term answers to an inevitable end to fossil fuels. Conclusively, we are back at “square one” once fossil fuels are depleted. For example, Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for vice-president, has plans in favor of drilling into oil reserves within the Alaskan region. Nevertheless, as well-meant as these intentions may be, they fail to uphold a final solution to the world’s need for energy.

The field of science lays the foundation for an education that is necessary in approaching and solving the world’s current energy crisis. If applied correctly, it can improve on the solutions already set in place. In other words, strengthen renewable sources of energy such as wind, hydroelectric forms of energy, and solar power. Even more, science majors and scientist can progress the creation and distribution of eco-friendly vehicles such as hybrids, electric cars, and hydrogen based motor vehicles.

More so, a recent Google search has lead me to discover a trend in “green” majors. Simply put, an economic initiative is sweeping college campuses in the fields of Biology with a focus on Ecology, Forestry, Environmental Law and “green” Engineering. This is an obvious foreshadow of the world’s, or at least the nation’s, future. Economic concerns put aside, the lacking numbers of American students entering mathematical and scientific studies remains at a constant decline. The American economy has lost its competitive edge over foreign nations and thus, native doctors, scientist and engineers have become less frequent. Although we are a nation based on equality, we must encourage our own population to embrace science (and mathematics) or face growing dependencies on foreign aid.…
