How did our country become so dummified?

When America started to reward mediocrity as excellence, the long slide began. In 1968, our students produced the highest ever SAT scores as a graduating high school class. It has never been equaled. Every year the students scored lower on that test, and it has been that way for 50 years.

When a student is allowed to "pass" a grade for social equality, it does the student no favor. Eventually that student becomes frustrated that s/he cannot do the class work and, if s/he does not drop out of school, s/he graduates. This phenomenon has been active for many, many years and gradually some of those students became teachers.

In 1977 the Washington Post literally copied tests devised by high school teachers and printed them. They were full of misspellings, factual errors, and bad grammar. Those teachers were the mediocre students who didn't learn excellence in school and they had successful "careers" in education. In short, those students who were socially "advanced" became the teachers of our children.

When we do not teach children basic grammar on the basis that "Johnny can't learn it because he is disadvantaged", we fail our children and dumb down the population. I understand that grammar graphing is no longer taught to children because "it is counterproductive." So now our children do not know sentence structure and cannot tell a verb from a noun. When we do not demand excellence from our children, we get mediocre adults.

When a child is praised for doing average work in school, s/he learns that education is not important. This child never learned cognitive skills...s/he has to do arithmetic with a calculator. This child never learns that writing is an art, not just some boring exercise. This child never learns to use his/her's all on the internet. Because English grammar is hard, children are not taught they do not speak properly.

When our children do not have time to daydream, to be quiet, and to think, they become mindless automatons who think the "latest thing" is the only way to be. There are literally millions of children and young adults who do not know how to cook, clean, or repair their own clothing. These young people have been sadly short changed in the education department when Home Economics was discontinued from the school system on the basis that "it's discriminatory". Johnny should have been made to take the class along with Suzie. A person who cannot cook, clean, and do their own clothes is called a dependent.

In the pursuit of the Great American Dream, we left our progeny in the dust. We let day care centers develop our children's personality, their moral standards, and their world view. We decided to abdicate our responsibility as parents to demand that our children be educated. We became passive parents on the premise that educators knew what our children needed more than we did.

The "New Math" experiment of the 1960's was a glaring example of how educators can be horribly wrong about education, their chosen profession. For those of us who lived through the nightmare of that experiment, we became healthily skeptical of "new" educational methods...but we forgot about it when our children went to school. We bowed to the "educators" who did not know how to teach or inspire. Our children were the result of pursuing the Money Train. And now they are parents and they don't know what excellence is.

The Baby Boomers were pushed by the Silent Generation to be excellent. We knew that no one could do it but us, no one would take care of us, and we not only could do it but we had to do it if it would get done. We neglected to teach our children this concept. "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch."

Today, our children are the result of entitlements. They think that they are entitled to an excellent job simply because they hold a piece of paper that says they graduated an institution. Not that they can do the job, they only know that they have a degree. The children cannot adapt household items to accomplish their goals, they cannot reason out the science behind their toys, and they have not been taught that thinking is the ultimate educational tool. Our children do not think.

So now, our children and grand children are having to learn the lessons of the Great Depression that our parents taught us. And in the process, we are also having to teach our children what they do not learn in school because of "political correctness". In the drive to make children equal, the educators have succeeded...and our children cannot read, write effectively, or reason out a logic problem. They are experts at taking multiple choice tests, but cannot tell the difference between fact and fancy. They do not know how to use a dictionary, an encyclopedia, or any media that is not electronically generated.

The next time you get a chance, go to school with your kids and find out what they are learning. It will shock and dismay you, but remember that you also are part of the problem. Never reward mediocrity with praise. Excellence is worth pursuing.

George Santanya was right when he said that "Those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it." The parents of the 1950's had Nikita Khrushchev pounding his shoe on the table saying "we will bury you" and they were at arms to educate their children. But Russia didn't do it, Japan did. Isn't it time that we took back our schools and start teaching our kids again?

If you have a GED what do you need to do to acquire an advanced degree in the sciences such as a doctorate?

To acquire a doctorate degree, you will need to apply to and be admitted to a college/university that offers a bachelors degree in the filed you are interested in.

In order to apply to a school, you will need to take the SAT or ACT test, depending on which one the college accepts. To find out when and where the tests are given, you should go to their sites. It is also a good idea to prepare for the test by using resources that are specifically for the test you will be taking.

Once you are admitted, you will need to complete a bachelors degree. Once you have that, you will need to complete a masters degree. There may be entrance exams (MAT and/or GRE) that are needed in order to be admitted for an advanced degree. Once you complete your masters degree, you can apply to a doctorate degree program.

Of course, you will want to get the very best grades you can throughout each of the programs.

How long does it take to become a pediatric nurse?

A person can qualify as a licensed practical nurse in one year. Registered nurse programs take two, three, or four years. Specializing for nurses is largely a matter of experience rather than formal education. However, a nurse can take a Master's Degree in a specialty, such as pediatrics, and then be designated a "Pediatric Nurse Practitioner." Requirements for nurse practitioner status vary from state to state. It's best to check with a local college or university that has a nursing degree program to get information for the state where you live. It is my understanding that you have to have your RN degree (usually 2-4 yrs) then you can get a job that specializes in pediatrics to get your training. I was told that basically RN's are trained to be able to do anything in the healthcare setting, but you get your specialized training hands on.

Do universities admit ex-juveniles with a GED providing that he or she fulfills all their requirements?

It depends on the university, obviously, but if the university doesn't have strict SAT requirements, etc, then most will. Note that colleges and universities have limited spots to fill during admissions, and are looking for a variety of people, so not everyone who applies (qualified or not) gets in. Talk to an admissions counselor at the university you are interested in, and explain the situation. They can advise you on what you need to do, and on things you can do to improve your chances if that is needed.

Your chances are pretty terrible of being accepted if you have a GED and (from what I gathered?) juvenile record. Even without the record, things are still not very shiny. However, if you go to a local 2-year school for a year, you do have quite a good shot at transferring into a reputable 4-year school (assuming you can get some good SAT scores and a strong GPA at the community college). It's been done many times. I would call your local community college about starting classes as soon as possible (you usually need at least 30 credits to qualify as a sophomore transfer). So long as you're a sophomore transfer student, they usually won't inquire about your high school record at all.

What colleges will accept a GED certificate?

== == About 95 percent of U.S. colleges and universities accept GED graduates in the same manner as high school graduates. GED graduates are also eligible for most federal financial aid if they meet the program's other criteria. After earning your GED credential, sign up to take the ACT and/or the SAT. The colleges to which you apply may also require you to take placement or achievement tests so that they can determine whether you need additional coursework.

The center can tell you: * Whether you can take the GED Tests * Where to find the Official GED Practice Tests * Where to find a GED instructional program * How much it costs to take the tests * When the tests are given * Other useful information From other contributors: * Well, From my experience I know that most Community/2-year Colleges will accept a G.E.D. but they might make you take a couple of proficiency exams. I don't know of any 4 year colleges that take G.E.D's. So what you should do is get accepted to a 2 year C.C. and transfer after a semester or a year of studies. That's how you will get around the problem of having a G.E.D and not being able to get into a 4 year school. * one school I am trying to get into ASU will take a student that passes his or her GED test and no SAT or ACT test is required ASU Admission reply

Home School students who are coming in as a freshman need to have admissible ACT or SAT test scores. They do not come in with a GPA. All classes taken in home school are entered as P for pass. The home school transcript is used to meet the competency requirements.

If a student takes the GED instead of graduating, or before he/she graduates from home school and receives a 500 or higher he is no longer considered a home school student and is automatically admitted

* You'll have to contact the particular college you want to go to. Most all colleges do take a GED

* Send an application to a college that accepts the GED. You might want to try a community college first. Most colleges have websites where you can find out about their admissions requirements and how to apply.
You would need to enter a community college, then transfer into a university when you get your associates degree

Learning Theories
General Educational Development (GED)

How do you apply insight learning theory in the classroom?

Educational Implications:

(i) The teacher should present a topic as a whole, teaching the relationship between the

constituent parts so that understanding of the learning situation results: The learning

experiences should be so arranged that the learner discovers & generalises the

relationship by himself. The subject matter should be organised into larger units /

meaningful wholes. The concept of unit - planning is based on the gestalt psychology

of learning. The children should, at the end, be able to perceive the relationship

between different units taught. The teacher should maintain the continuity while

teaching a big unit in smaller parts.

While teaching Geography, parts of a flower, etc. the region / flower should be emphasized.

While reading the spelling should be read as a whole word & not individual letters; in

Maths, the relationship between the different steps should be made clear; while teaching

grammar, the functional aspect is also to be emphasized.

Just definitions about nouns, pronouns etc, without showing how they are used, is going to

be of no value. In Biology different systems (respiration, degestion, circulation, etc.) should

be related into an organised whole - functioning of the human body.

(ii) The 'purpose' or 'motive' plays the central role in the learning process. Hence the

students should be motivated by arousing their interest & curiosity.

(iii) Understanding, reasoning & such use of creative mental powers is needed rather than

rote learning or dirll / practice work. The learner should be given opportunities to use

thinking & reasoning powers. Instead of giving him re facts & figures, he should be

placed in the position of an independent enquirer / discoverer. Instead of spoon - 4

feeding the information, scientific & progressive methods like analytic & problem

solving which advocate learning by insight should be made popular.

However, it is difficult to rely exclusively on particular method to teach a topic. A

method cannot be based purely on stimulus response or field theories. This is because

all children are not equally intelligent nor have the required capacity for insight

learning at a particular moment. Hence, the whole - part - whole method is to be

emphasized, which in involves the giving of the general outline or broad features of

the topic; then analysis the various specifics through stimulus response associations,

then generalize & integrate into a summated whole unit / topic.
