    Q: A Vancouver C-Tran bus ran a red light and crashed into my car, and now I'm in pain and scared quite a bit but I already had a lower back injury and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and this has just exacerbated it and given me an upper back injury.

    Adult Education

    Q: I think it's great that you live in an area where everyone seems to be doing some kind of learning for enrichment and not "just" career advancement. I'm all for the latter, but I regret that during the past 20 years, adult ed has moved away from liberal learning and personal enrichment.

"Because," replied the Queen, "here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place." The modern world is through the looking glass sometimes, and we need to run as fast as possible just to stay put. Continuing Education Most...

The methodology of the old B.E.A: T./M.D. seminars was to break down a person's personality to the ground by insults and even severe psychological and minor physical abuse - such as a slap in the face or pushing someone over - and by locking the...

    Business Education And Training

    Q: I have discussed the matter at some length with a Prof of Business Admin. He makes a number of points - that in the UK and the commonwealth business education has generally fought something of an uphill battle to achieve respectability (and he says still doesn't get much respect in the UK). Being rather tied to real world business there isn't much of discipline independent of case studies in particular organisations (so few experiments, and weak constraint on practice from evidence, given that many factors operate simultaneously in the success of failure of any business). And finally that MBA...

I frequently hire people on the basis of their educational background, even to the detrement of my personal preconceptions about race, sex, country of origin, etc. So how do you get companies to pay for the education that they are demanding instead of making society pay...

    Business Education Teacher, Why Did You Become A Teacher?

    Q: I am looking for information about what brings people into education. I would appreciate hearing from people about why they became teachers. If you can help, I'd really appreciate it.A:I'm especially interested in this query because I am thinking of becoming a teacher.

    Business Education Technology, What Is 'business Education'?

    Q: What are some critical issues in 'business education' today? What are some changes that might come to the field of 'business education' in the >near future? And -- are those changes desirable?A:I view the Internet as a vast library that: (a) has no qualitative screening processes; and, (b) has primitive methods for locating information. The 'net has been rapidly commercialized with the advent of on-line shopping, the proliferation of corporate web-sites, and the damnable practice of spamming. At this time I would not try to integrate the 'Information Superhighway' with business education (except as a demonstration of...

As a Texan, I belive that I can assure you of the immense diversity of the state. Texas is home to a vast array of people and cultures and cannot be so easily pigeon-holed with your silly small minded comments.

    Business Free Education

    Q: I stumbled across this web site the other day and am really impressed. It offers dozens of free online courses. So far I've found several business courses like accounting and bookkeeping, finance, etc, various college-level humanities courses, science courses, and various IT/computer courses. Most of the courses are listed under the "general course catalog", while the computer stuff is listed under "IT courses". The web site even offers a free GED course. I'm just starting the accounting course. I have no connection with the site and they don't offer anything for sale. Some of...

    Business Management Education, Jeffery K. Skilling's Harvard Business School Mba Education

    Q: The very first lecture of my first MBA course, the professor said to us: "Don't do anything illegal, you will lose a lot of money." He then paused for the dramatic effect. While what he did seemed weird back then, the facts is that I have never made any decision to do anything illegal, after Enron, I will just stick to that rule.A:In order to have continual growth in energy trading business, Skilling and his posse would need to spend a lot of time finding new customers, create contracts, and doing a lot of economic forcasting, that is difficult....

    Business School Online Degree Program, Online Degree Completion

    Business Study Education, What Should Be Done With Higher Education?

    Q: The NuLabcur proposals on top-up fees are wrong both in practice and principle. They have been made worse by the latest concessions which will grant privileges to students on the basis of their parental income - below a certain parental income, students will not be charged top-up fees at all and will receive bursaries. This is obnoxious in the extreme. What should be done? Provide state scholarships for 20% of school-leavers in bona fide academic subjects, cease...

    By Declining Degree Education Higher Risk, We Need High-tech Immigrants

    Q: What a pathetic piece of corporate propaganda. They labeled workers that want to keep their jobs as extremists. Why don't we call those fat, ultra-rich corporate boys extremists for wanting to destroy the American way of life?A:This is why so many non-CompSci majors are now doing programming. It is entirely possible that if adequate numbers of CompSci graduates had been granted that companies would have retained their requirement that employees have a CompSci degree, and this would have locked out a fair number of people who are now very successful at programming. I suspect, but of course would...

    Cai Medical Transcription Course

    Q: I will be signing up with a medical transcription school in December. I don't have much money and am torn between CAI and AHP.

    Childhood Depression ?

    Q: your child does not fall into any of these categories? Does this guarantee a child free from depression? The answer is no.

Children with an inherited tendency for depression will be highly susceptible to the strains caused by the need for peer acceptance.A:In order to recognize when a child is depressed, it is important to become aware of the symptoms and the signs to look for. Because children are not as articulate as adults in expressing their emotions, it is unlikely that they...

    Citadel Class Ring, Women At The Citadel And Vmi = Why?

    Q: Reciently in the news I saw that VMI and the Citadel (SP?) had their first women graduates. This comes after all the resistance put up by both institutions to go co-ed. Now this question is meant not as a sneer at the graduates, but as a serious question I hope people in this NG can shed some light on. Why would any woman want to go to either of these places? I know that these places have high academic standards, but why bother to put up with the selfish ignorance and outright hatred of some people who...

    College Of Continuing Education

    Q: I have been taking some computer courses on my agency's website. The site says it offers CEU's but I don't exactly know what that means. Can anybody explain what CEU's are and whether they can be used towards undergraduate and graduate degrees?A:The CEU is a "Continuing Education Unit," which is used for professional and continuing education courses. One CEU equals ten clock hours of contact time. While it is usually frowned upon to grant partial CEU's, it is quite common to see them expressed as a decimal. Thus, an eight-hour workshop or seminar...

    Community College

    The community college is a college tending to the educational needs of the local community. These are, in common language, junior colleges or two-year colleges. The community college is in close proximity to the main thoroughfares for the students to commute easily. The main point of difference between these and the normal colleges is that these do not offer you the facility of hostels. Therefore, you cannot stay at the colleges.

First of all, I am currently taking a Diploma in Computer studies validated by the University of Cambridge and NCC. National Computing Center i think.

    Consolidate Debt

    Home equity loans and lines of credit have seen explosive growth in recent years. The most common reasons that homeowners take such loans are education, renovation, major purchase, and to consolidate debt. If you are a homeowner, you probably receive several notices advising that now is the perfect time to consolidate debt each month. Be careful.

Many unsuspecting homeowners do not fully understand the terms of the agreement and find themselves in more trouble after debt consolidation than before. It is easy to see why....

    Continuing Christian Education (economical, Not Necessarily A Degree)

    Q: I am wondering if anyone knows of some courses or a program of study at or beyond the Master's level in Christian studies (theology, church history, practical ministry training) that is thoughtfully designed and economical. It need not lead to a degree. Basically, I think about continuing my education every so often, but I am concerned about spending a lot of money on a degree program, especially when I don't think it would have much practical benefit for me (e.g. in the job market). I've already completed an M.A: in Biblical Studies (New College Berkeley, 93) and I've...

    Continuing Education

    Q: As a mathematical amateur no longer attending university, I miss the stimulation of taking a math course. If my interest were modern languages (for example), I could take what they call 'continuing education' courses at almost any college or university, but for the mathematical enthusiast these institutions seemingly have nothing. Can anybody suggest a comparable alternative?A:Why does 'continuing education' not include (at least potentially) math? At one university I know (George Mason U.), they have a category called 'Extended Studies', open more-or-less to anyone paying the tuition, and it is certainly possible to take courses (including graduate-level) under...

    Continuing Education: A Professional Necessity

    If you work in any profession today, and often in a paraprofession, you know you need to get continuing education units - CEUs - to maintain your professional credentials.

    Continuing Education Credit For Nurse

    Q: What exactly are CPE Credits? I don't think they are the same as college credit. The closest thing that I think they are is for every hour of "professional" training, you get one CPE credit? So if I'm a mechanic, for instance, and I attend a seminar of how to rebuild the latest transmission in a Corvette, and this seminar is 8 hours long, I get 8 CPE credits? If this is true, what do I use these credits for? Do they just sit there and look neat on a certificate? I have a wall...

    Continuing Education For Nurse

    Q: I am a nurse practitioner/researcher who is offering continuing education for nurses and other health professionals on a new website called "ALLWISE" (www.allwise.com). I am interested in hearing from women about their experiences using various hormone treatments (estrogen pills, patches, injections, progesterone, testosterone etc.) to manage their menopause.

    Continuing Education Units (ceu's)

I have seen a number of seminars, short courses, etc that have statements such as "6 Continuing Education Units (CEU's) awarded upon successful completion of this course.

Things like CPR, First Aid, Automated External Defibrillation, Bloodborne pathogens, Stress management, etc. Obviously, if someone can get CE credit for a course that will make them more likely to take it. But I have found this professional course level accreditation even more of a mess than University level accreditation! It may be, and I'm hoping not, that every individual organization that regulates each profession has their own standards,...

    Continuing Medical Education Medicine

    Q: Drug-company influence on medical education in USA It begins on the first day of medical school and lasts through to retirement, and it is the only reliable "cradle to grave" benefit that doctors can truly count on any more. Even in this era of medical-ledger watching world wide, there is little evidence to expect it will ever end. In fact, it may even be growing. It starts slowly and insidiously, like an addiction, and can end up influencing the very nature of medical decision-making and practice. It first appears harmless enough: a textbook here, a penlight there, and progresses to...

    Cpa Continuing Education

    Q: I am both a CPA and a CISA: Each certification requires 40 CPE hours per year. In years where I do not have Schedule C income, I itemize these costs along with professional association dues on Schedule A subject to 2% AGI. The question arises as the duplication of CPE hours. I could arrange my Continuing Professional Education so that I could submit the same 40 hours on each form.

    Degree By Mail For Busy People

    Getting your degree by mail isn't the most traditional way to go about it, but there are real reasons why you might want to do it this way. However, you should be careful about what institution you pay for your degree by mail. If someone offers you a degree by mail and all you have to do is pay for it, don't. If you don't have any work to do for it, it won't earn you anything. A degree by mail is only as good as the place that you get it from. Many institutions offer exceptional classes...

    Distance Education

    The distance education is very popular with university students. The student receives the study material in the form of printed material, audio and video tapes and of late in the form of CD-ROMs and emails.

Similarly, the student finishes his study and submits the assignment in much the same fashion. Beyond this regular arrangement, the teacher and the students often meet personally at contact classes to have an overview of the progress of the studies.

    Distance Learning As Adjunct And Alternative

    Distance learning, also known as distance education, supplements classroom (or conference room) teaching and learning methods and materials. With technology steering the vehicle that is education, distance learning accelerates on-site learning in a number of off-site ways that contemporary learners benefit greatly from.

While I'm asking, is there licensure/certification for all those pharmacy techs?A:Some states require a license for their techs (I think most with a grace period to allow for otj training). Other states have no requirements. The PTCB (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) offers a national certification exam which then requires 20 hours of Continuing Education every 2 years to maintain. Most retail and some hospital pharmacies seem to offer financial incentives to...

    Maryland Dental School

    Q: Hello, I am a college senior that has finished applying to dental school and have received offers from B.U. and Temple, is waiting on U of Penn. and has been waitlisted from my state school of U. of Md. I have obviously done some research into all of these schools and I have come to some conclusions which I was wondering if someone could validate.

    Massage Therapy Continuing Education

    Q: Nobody is "taking control" of the massage therapy field. Good thing too. Like nurses, DC's, PT's, & most other health care practitioners, there isn't any *nationwide* regulation. Of course, this doesn't mean they are not regulated. Massage therapy is regulated state by state in (at last count from several months ago -- 29 states). Many states have been regulating massage therapy education & practitioners for years now. Most regulated states require continuing education for license renewal. They have professional regulatory boards which handle complaints, questions, & certification of schools. In addition, the American Massage...

    Master Degree In Nursing Program, Need Advice On Choosing A Nursing School

    Q: I have just been accepted to the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. I'm excited about getting in and consider it an honor, but I'm not 100% sure about my decision to enroll. I've heard different things from different people, with some saying that it doesn't matter where I get my nursing degree, and others saying that I'd be crazy to turn down an opportunity at such a great education. I live in Louisiana, so moving up to Baltimore is not a decision that I take lightly. I'm interested in pursuing a Master's degree in community...

    Master In Nursing Online Degree

Also, my ultimate goal is to get into nurse anesthesia, as quickly and cheaply as possible. Any feedback on Phoenix's program? Am I barking up the right tree for nurse anesthesia?A:There is no easy route to getting a nursing degree....

    Master Online Special Education Degree, Online College Degrees

    Q: Here is a description of a university that offers degrees through distance learning by email. It is making efforts to attract people with disabilities. I have no idea about the quality--just passing the info along.A:This sounds fascinating. I checked out the URL and filed it away for referral.

The one thing that she is getting at Beacon College that she wouldn't get at an online university is...

    Master's Degree From Online University

    Q: I want to know does a Master degree from an online university is accepted for canada immigration and enable me to get the 25 score? A: Only if it is an accredited institution, but even then it may be tricky depending from the program. But in general - chances are rather slim.

    Masters Degree In Education

    Q: Are there Regionally Accredited Colleges/Universities that offer Masters Degrees in Education that accept graduate level work similar to Regents and Thomas Edison?A:At the MA level the most you could probably expect to transfer in would be 6-9 units. If you literally mean a regionally accredited master's in education, not that I know of. But there is a program that comes close which may be of interest to you. That's Western Governors University's new master of arts program in "learning and technology". It opens for business in August 1999, and apparently will be conducted entirely by examination. Examinations will be...

    Meharry Dental School, Ouch!! Dentist Needed Asap

    Q: One of my wisdom teeth has decided to impact and become infected. Many of you know the pain. I've been putting off dealing with this tooth for years since it's usually in remission. The last time I had one extracted--the oral surgeon let the painkillers wear off and I went through most of the procedure in agony. He had to chisel it apart and nicked the jawbone--I literally screamed for 24 hours, the pills did nothing. So here I am in pain, no dental coverage, and no regular dentist, with my Visa card armed. Could y'all recommend somebody or...

    Mental Health Clinic For Eating Disorders

    For a number of years, Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa were thought to be diseases surrounding self-image problems. However, in recent mental health findings, it has been determined that there are a number of mental health issues surrounding these disorders including anxiety problems, control issues, and low self-esteem that find themselves manifested in an intense fear of food and weight gain. The underlying issues that the patient experiences cause them to starve themselves, as with Anorexia, or binge and purge though vomiting, diet pills, or laxatives, as with Bulimia.

    National Education Association - In Your Face "gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, And Transgender Education"

    Q: You've got to hand it to the National Education Association. The NEA's press people and spin artists know how to manipulate the news. The NEA got widespread national publicity by announcing on Independence Day that it was withdrawing its controversial proposed "New B" resolution regarding "Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Education." Parents concluded they could relax in the assurance that their darlings would not be exploited with such teaching in the schools. A: The NEA is a disgrace. They, along with the education department do not want to educate but only promote education. The dept of education should...

    Nats Education Policy Came From Business Round Table

    Q: Testing seven year and eleven yr olds with a nation wide-examination has been proven destructive to children's well being and has been dropped by Scottish and Welsh Education Authorities who found children were suffering extreme anxiety for a test which provides nothing of lasting value to a childs education but can produce severe failure syndrome in young kids. It has also been found that teachers experienced work overload and stress with national testing contributed to teachers leaving the profession.A:While my heart leans strongly toward Labour and Green, and while I admire the near-Redbaiter-like tenacity of...

    Nc Ged

    Q: In what way is establishment of a competency standard to be considered "control"? I know you would prefer that everyone go through life without any responsibility for their choices (and make it a crime against "liberty" for someone to point out a fault) but get serious for a second: How does it serve society OR the individuals concerned for their "education" to have so little relevance to that of their neighbors that they cannot write a simple declarative sentence, fully comprehend the wording of a "plain language" warranty, or balance their checkbook? NC high schools and colleges...

    Need A Degree Education From Online School

    Q: I am 20 years old, and have made the mistake of going straight to work after graduating high-school. I've also managed to run up some debt, and therefore have an obligation to continue working full-time. I'm an auto-technician, and hold master ASE certification. Regardless of this, I do not make good money, nor do I have much enthusiasm about staying committed to this miserable line of work. I've recently started part-time training to become a pilot.

    New York State - What Do You Think Of?

    When people think about New York State, they generally think about sight seeing. They think about all of the museums, night life, and other activities that make New York a popular tourist site. However, New York can be a great place to live for a lot of reasons. One big reason to live in New York State is the educational opportunities. There are many colleges in New York State. They are all unique institutions of higher education. One of the colleges that is most often recognized by name, is NYU. This is one of the largest private universities in the...

    Noble Continuing Education

    Q: I want to find out what "older adults" (the term used by the Library of Congress to describe Seniors and distinguish them from seniors in schools and colleges) feel about classroom education. The views expressed have meandered from that to the internet as substitute, to Elderhostel... I am glad it gave folks the opportunity to vent their views. However, to come back to my original question: yes, websites like suite101 are OK but they charge for their services. Barnes and Noble's online university does not, as far as I know, and is as good. But...

    Obtaining Your Bachelor Degree Online

    Obtaining your bachelor degree online may not be as prestigious as obtaining it from a more traditional college, but in the grand scheme of things a degree listed on your resume looks the same no matter where it is from. If you have a limited amount of time to devote to going back to school, online colleges offer you flexibility and variety that traditional colleges cannot offer. Going back to school can be tough, especially if you are significantly older than when you were last a student. Even community colleges with night school programs can be hard...

    Online-schools Who Need Instructors

    Q: I am looking for names of on-line schools, who are currently seeking Instructors to teach Computer or Business Classes. Either Acredited or not, Adademic or Continuing Education.

Both of us live in rural areas with limited local opportunities.A:It sounds like you're looking for a teaching position, but don't have any documented qualifications to teach (i.e., no accredited degree). As such, it's *very* unlikely that you'll find a legitimate, quality...

    Online Accredited Education Degrees

    Q: Has anybody had any experience with non-traditional degrees & the INS ?

    Online Bachelor Degree Education, Bachelor Degree ??

    Q: Where can I get/pass online "Bachelor Degree" ??A:You need a degree to be a bachelor? I thought all it took was to stay out of churches when they are all decorated with flowers and streamers. If you want a legitimate degree from a regionally accredited school, but you want an alternative delivery method (distance learning) then consult the folks over at www.degreeinfo.com. Keep in mind that a legitimate distance learning degree is often harder than it's traditional brick-and-mortar school counterpart because you become the teacher AND the student.

    Online Bachelor's Degree

    Q: I just finished a Master's program with University of Phoenix online. It was expensive (they are a private university).I completed my degree in 18 months. It was pretty time consuming b/c we had to post and respond to postings 4 out of 7 days in the week (weeks started on Tuesday to allow homework to be done on the weekends). Since it is online there are also a lot of papers to write. Group projects are also a big part of the program... in my case it went very well with our groups never meeting f2f, but using...

    Online Certificate In Online Teaching

    Q: Following the thread, but shifting it a bit... because it is quite an important subject (bringing newby teachers, students, admins, parents etc. to the Net)... and I have something to add regarding facilitating the transition. First, let me compliment those past postings, re: 85% teachers don't use, ideas for creating personal site megasites (that sometimes backfire), offering to handhold with little turnout (too busy), spending hours building your own WWW sites but not being able to get teachers to even sit down at a terminal. All of your comments are worthy and valuable. I would like to...

    Online Certification Training ?

    Q: I'm curious if anybody has taken MCSE courses online. What did you think? What did you like not like? Is it a good way to get certified or not? Any recommended sites/schools?A:It would be safer to take a online program from a recognized university or college or school program affliated with a established college. The cost for online courses are the same as in-class courses though for recognized colleges, so it may be worth it to just go to class at least you get to meet new people in person. Online education is just a natural step for distance education which has been available...

    Online Cis Degree?

    Q: I know this question is off-topic, being more education related than programming related, I am hoping to get some feedback on education for switching from a management career to a programming/systems management career. I am going to be entering the online Masters in Information Systems at Drexel University in the Spring: http://www.cis.drexel.edu/grad/OnlineMSIS/ My father was listening to NPR the other day, and suggested that it might be either a) required or b) a waste of time to get an advanced degree because with the proliferation of online degrees the value of the peice of paper they are written on...

    Online College Courses

    Q: Are there any colleges that offer online courses and award bachelor's degrees (or better) in history? I'm currently trying to work full time during the day and attend classes at night, but would prefer a format that offers more freedom of pace and allows me to do most (if not all) of the work using my computer at home. It would also be nice if the tuition was below $500+ for a 3-credit course, if that wouldn't result in "attending" an institution of lower repute.A:The New School for Social Research in New York offers some classes online. The non-profit that I work for has a...

    Online Education Specialist Degree, Nova Southeastern, An Ra Degree Mill?

    Q: Per Dr. Levicoff's suggestion, I checked out Nova Southeastern's program in Computer Technology in Education. Very expensive, very poor quality. I consider this particular program a "degree mill" program for the following reasons. http://scis.nova.edu/Doctoral/dcte.html 1) According to the Nova literature "A student may declare his or her degree preference (Ph.D. or Ed.D.) at any time during the program. The difference between these degrees is a name difference only.". I find this very disturbing and the statements highly irresponsible for an accredited University. A PhD is a research degree, designed to prepare specialized academians for a lifetime of continuing...

    Online University Of Maryland Online Vs U Of Phoenix?

    Q: I'm looking for an entirely online BS program in MIS or CIS and I'm looking at UoP or UoM.

    Origin Of Public Education In The Us?

    Q: When did the US begin to offer free compulsory education to the public's children. I thought it was pretty early on, but it's not in the Bill of Rights or Constitution; that I can find. I thought it was right up there with the Right to Bare Arms and Free Speech as being necessary for a democracy. Did the founders enact that later? It seems to be in some State C/BoR and some country's C/BoR from searching google but I can't find it at the Federal level. A: Jefferson tried to get Virginia to...

    Ot: John Pelan's Business Management Degree ?

    Q: I've been browsing through US colleges looking at information relating to degrees in business management.

    Paths For Engineering Careers

    There are hundreds of different paths you can take if you're interested in engineering as a career: a short list of very common engineering paths includes civil engineering, aerospace engineering, environmental engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, safety engineering, genetic engineering, mechanical engineering, and nuclear engineering.

It was sent to only one group and that group is relevent to the degree/information being offered. Also, they have only posted it once.

I found, on "news.answers" newsgroup, that there is a four-part distance learning FAQ: I skimmed the first...

    Pharma And Continuing Medical Indoctrination

    Q: Why does medicine have a problem?A:Because industry pays for well over half of the expense of doctors' continuing medical education. Virtually all the continuing education departments in hospitals, medical centers, and medical schools rely on drug-company funding. Everybody does it, and when four drug companies gave the Massachusetts General Hospital's Psychiatry Department $6.5 million dollars to spread its educational expertise, the reaction was muted. Professional societies are equally dependent on drug-company money. They rely on grants for operating expenses, for running enormous annual meetings, and for developing treatment recommendations for practicing doctors. Societies solicit funds by peddling chunks of...

    Schools Offer Distance Learning

    As more public schools face state and federal mandates concerning curriculum, administrators have been forced to find ways to meet the requirements. Coupled with budget constraints, some mandates have been difficult or impossible to meet, especially for the smaller school districts. Consider, for example, the requirement to offer foreign language in the public schools.

    Special Education

    The special education is for a special student. This is the main underlying truth on which the special teacher has to base the lessons for these students. Every class is unique in its own way, in the sense that you can teach the matter for the day only after you are able to communicate with the students as per their need. You can take help from the internet and from different books on this subject to deal with the problems while teaching in such a class. The students of the special education class may not be able to voice out...

    Sports Management Distance Education

    Q: Can anyone help? I'm looking for institutions that offer Sports Management Distance Education classes via either online or corresspondence study. A: I think the University of Dallas (TX) has something like this. Also, try the US Sports Academy, which I heard recently received regional accreditation. If I'm wrong on either count, I'm sure SOMEONE on this board will tear me apart and then, perhaps, offer the correct information. I see on page 173 of Bears' Guide that the U.S. Sports Academy offers such courses, leading to a Master's degree in sports management. www.sport.ussa.edu The United...

    Stacy's Feelings On Harassment

    Q: Harassment does not occur because women dress provocatively or initiate sexual activity in the hope of getting promoted and advancing their careers. Studies have found that victims of sexual harassment vary in physical appearance, type of dress, age, and behavior If you ignore harassment, will it go away?A: It will not. Research has shown that simply ignoring the behavior is ineffective; harassers generally will not stop on their own. Ignoring such behavior may even be seen as agreement or encouragement.

    Statistics On Teenage Depression?

    Q: During pregnancy a medical person, typically a GP or obstetrician, reviews the medical notes of the mother, and finds `indicants' of future problems, such as depression, teenage self-harm, or personality disorder (notably borderline), or having about three or more children, especially if close in age.A:The initial hearing results in the appointment of several expert psychiatric or psychological witnesses, each with their own eccentric pet theories. They argue in court and outside, leading to further hearings and extra experts. After five years the psychiatric model is eventually arrived at and configured vaguely to fit the particular case, and will consist...

    Q: OK I've narrowed it down to the University of Connecticut or Stony Brook.

Sorry since they did not fit me. I didn't keep the details. Look some more! -7.9% for...

    Student Loan Debt

    Student loans play a very important role in today's world. Given the high cost of a college education, most students wouldn't be able to go to college unless they took a student loan. However, most students end up taking a student loan before exhausting all other options as a result of which they take a much bigger student loan than they otherwise would have. Before they know it, they are saddled with a huge student loan debt that takes them years to pay off. The best way to avoid getting into serious student loan debt is to take on as low...

    Q: For the first time in a decade, the rate at which borrowers defaulted on student loans rose slightly in the 2000 fiscal year, to 5.9 percent from 5.6 percent the year before, the U.S. Education Department announced on Thursday. Despite the increase, the default rate is still at a "historically low level," said Education Secretary Roderick R. Paige, who attributed the rise to the recession and to the September 11 attacks.

    Succeeding With Higher Education

    High education refers to education gained after high school. In most cases, higher education refers to professional programs such as associate degrees or undergraduate degrees such as bachelor degrees. High education is often the minimum requirement for many of today's jobs. People who pursue higher education are seen as attractive to employers because they show that they are willing to learn and develop their skills over time. If you are entering higher education degrees, you may wonder how higher education differs from the schooling you have received so far. You may even wonder how you can succeed in making the...

    Sylvan Learning Center As Supplement To Success

    Sylvan Learning Center educators say that "Every one and a half minutes someone calls a Sylvan Learning Center for help." This may be because the interactivity, personalization, and effective adjunct tools and strategies offered are effective in assisting the child or teen who needs either extra academic support or acceleration attention.

    Teen Pregnancy Options And Statistics

    As teen pregnancy statistics continue to rise, this social issue becomes more and more pressing in the United States. Though there is much debate regarding sex education in schools, the teaching of safe sex, pregnancy prevention and abstinence are all viable options in the quest for reducing the teen pregnancy rates in this country. Teen pregnancy is such a growing problem partially because teenagers are less likely to use contraception correctly and consistently when they are sexually active. Part of this is because of a lack of knowledge, and part is because of a lack of access...

    The *business* Of "higher" Education: Questions Of Value

    Q: And why in the heck should DL cost MORE? Should it not cost less? What happenned to the video courses that were supposed to radically change the way Americans learned on their time? Hardly any "higher" educational facility uses these. Videotape one instructor, make copies, send out. Must not be cost-effective. And being "RA" is no guarantee that an institution is any better than _not_ being accredited. The accreditation process is very expensive, anal-retentive in its directives, requires unneccesary textbooks which are astronomically over-priced, and promulgates the publish or perish attitude.A:I see from Chapter...

    The Distance Learning College And What To Beware

    Like the substitute teacher who sits in lieu of the contracted teacher, the distance learning college works in the place of the actual college one would drive to, take a bus to, or live on campus at. And like the substitute teacher who has the same credentials and concerns for the evolution of learners, the distance learning college has the accreditation and acclaim that the physical, real-time college has. Or it usually does. What you have to watch out for are the phonies, the fakes, the distance learning colleges that are giving distance learning a bad name. The...

    The Importance Of Character Education

    A respected New York Times reporter is fired for plagiarism. Another is fired for just making his stories up. Your children are asking questions about why politicians keep calling each other liars. Your children want to know why bad guys flew airplanes into the World Trade Center, and why we have young men overseas shooting people who may or may not be associated with those bad guys. And why the little girl in his class dresses like the bad guys. Your child comes home crying because his teacher called him stupid. All these things can be addressed with character education. The things your...

    Traditional Blackboard Learning To The Umpteenth Power

    It's true, we have come a long way from the individual chalk slates held by individual students in a one-room school house with dirt floors, a choking pot-bellied stove, curtain-less windows, and one person knowledgeable enough to teach manifold subject range to a class of all ages packed into one room. Blackboard learning was one of the first tools (after hundreds of years of sticks in the dirt learning, etc., of course) that had a particular educational appeal. That is, blackboard learning was effective as a visual aid for visual learners, those in the largest learning style group...

    Using Career Education To Advance Yourself

    Back in the fifties, most people didn't have a college education, and the most valued employees were the guys who'd been there for years and knew everything about the company. But in today's world, hard work and a great work ethic aren't enough to advance your career. Instead, you have to invest in continuous education; you must be able to retrain yourself, to think differently, to be more flexible. It's tough, but you can do it. Where to Educate Yourself We have had an information revolution over the last several years. Instead of confining education to brick buildings with classrooms and professors...

    Using Educational Toys To Entertain And Teach Your Children

    Learning is fun, or it should be. I loved learning new things when I was a kid, reading through encyclopedia and dictionaries to find out new and exciting stuff. But it seems like kids today don't have the time to do that. Or they consider it geeky. Or they just think learning is boring. This is because they've learned bad education habits in school. You, the parent, can get them interested again by using educational toys. Educational Toys for Babies (Birth-1) Many people don't realize how bad a baby's vision really is. If you are more than eighteen inches away from a two-month-old...

    What Are Your Feelings?

    Q: What are your feelings? on sexual harrassment is over rated in the workplace?A: I would never go so far as to say that sexual harassment is overrated in the workplace. However, I will say that too few people seem to understand that men can be sexually harassed at work too, just like women can be. Everyone is on the look out for shady behavior from men toward women, but it seems like, in doing this, they are completely missing sexual no-no's from female employees (especially female bosses or women in management positions). Sexual harassment education which, impressively, is being used...

    What Do You Think About Driver Education, Especially In Illinois?

    Q: In Illinois, the driver's ed class was a one-semester class and you had to take it or you couldn't graduate or receive a license. As anyone who lives there can tell you it doesn't help much. But looking at California now compared to just a bit ago, the difference is remarkable. Up until 1992 or so, there was driver's ed in high school which included a day of driving a week. A good number of people took that rather than spend several hundred dollars (which parents wouldn't otherwise cough up) for a weekend class. Now driver's ed is classroom only, so they have to pay...

    What Makes Successful Online Learner?

    Q: I'm looking for information about what makes a good online learner, particularly as it relates to learning styles. Anybody know a good source?A:I cannot quote a single source, but I'll throw in my two cents. Online learning probably requires at least average intelligence with at least age expectant cognitive ability in processing information visually and tactiley. An online learner must be capable of processing and integrating visual information. Fine motor skills, such as keyboarding, is likewise essential. A person with a particular strength in the auditory mode would not likely do as well online as they would in-class where the primary delivery system...

    What To Ask When Seeking A Legitimate Distance Learning Degree

With the accessibility of internet facilities, universities, and educators, we can study and earn a distance learning degree that is the valid, acceptable, acknowledged equivalent to the Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate. But the operative word here is "earn."

    Q: Where do professors report harassment emails by a student ? is it at the student life center? does it mean that the student is bored or has no lifeA: Every campus has a different policy about reporting harassment. I would find out my own campus' procedures and not follow anything specific that's offered here; we don't even know what campus you're on. If it is sexual in nature, your college probably has a specific administrator assigned to sexual harassment--you can find out who it is by looking through the student handbook (even if you're faculty) and contact that person...

    Who Needs An Education Degree?

    An education degree used to be something for anyone in the arts who wanted to "have something to fall back on."

In fact, some successful writers - Frank McCourt and Stephen King, to name two - got education degrees or teaching certificates in order to be able to teach. In their cases, of course, they found another...
