Culture -- in higher education, and in our society -- is at the heart of the matter.We have reduced K-12 schooling to basic skill acquisition that effectively leaves most students underprepared for college-level learning.
Teaching is increasingly left to contingent faculty; tenure-track professors have few incentives to spend time with undergraduates, improve their teaching, or measure what their students are learning.
Expectations for hard work in college have fallen victim to smorgasbord-style curriculums, large lecture classes, and institutional needs to retain students in order to make the budget.
Some needed to be up in summer school for recovery. The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain.
I personally was always focused because I wanted to become a software engineer. Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better.
Freedom also means having the time to do things right.
No freedom, in this case, would mean that I wouldn’t have any time for fantastic, clever thoughts.
I would have to do things extremely precise and quick.
When I don’t have freedom, I am under pressure constantly.
People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge.
Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. But then again, information cannot be converted into knowledge without education. One thing I wish I can do is, to provide education for all: no child left behind and change the world for good!!
