The book gives the situation of the secondary education in Albania. The net enrollment of students in secondary education varies according to areas, regions and prefectures. In the Central and Mountain Region of Albania, in addition to low economic developments, the educational attainment of the population is as lower as and more inequal than in other regions. The results of the models indicate that non-registration of students in the secondary is different not only geographically but also under the influence of the economic situation in the student's family, educational infrastructure, parents education, number of children in the family, lack of parent in the family, all of them risk factors. A student living in the Central Region and Mountain Region of the country, but not only, having a difficult economic situation, the school that is far away, low parents education, the absence of one or both parents in the family, has more chances not to be enrolled in high school after completing 9 years of basic education. The education is influenced by factors related with the demand and suppy side.
Many countries in the world attach a lot of value to higher agricultural education. It is viewed as a panacea to all challenges that may confront the agricultural sector. However, many young people are not keen to take agriculture as a lifelong career. The study explored the opportunities of information and communication technology on influencing potential university students in their choice to study agriculture and related sciences. The existing body of research has highlighted factors that influence decision making among students in their choice to study agricultural programmes. It has focused on lack of information on agricultural education, negative perceptions and lack of role models as some of the factors impacting on students' decisions. The research explored the access and use of ICTs among undergraduate students and how it influenced their choice of agriculture as a programme of study in tertiary education. Recommendations were made to fully integrate ICTs in tertiary agricultural education to make it demand driven.
This study will help the students and policy makers to understand the facts related to loans available for higher education in the country. Higher Education supplies knowledge, which is driving modern economic growth. Hence, development of qualitative higher education system becomes crucial, which could provide access to all those who want to pursue higher studies. Access to higher education should not be limited to few sections of the society which creates inequality. Therefore access to loan will reduce inequality. Enrollment to higher education has increased significantly in the country. But, at the same time inequity in enrollment ratio is also observed, particularly with respect to SC/STs, women, rural youths, etc. This disparity needs to be corrected by bringing all those socially and economically weaker sections in the fold of higher education. New sources of financing are being explored. In this direction, student loan scheme for higher education has got much attention as a way for finance. The study revealed that educational loans should be easily available so that more students can become independent and get better job opportunities after getting higher education.
This study examines international student programs (ISP) in community colleges. A review of related literature discloses that there was a lack of uniformity for admission, testing, and placement of international students. This study analyzes ISPs in the forty community colleges with the largest international student enrollment nationwide to identify best practices in policies, and then compares the benchmarks with the ISP policies in the sixteen Maryland community colleges. The theoretical framework for this study, environments for learning, is attributed to John Dewey. Following his principles, a variety of educational standards and methods are appropriate in cultivating a society, there is a need to make differences in education s spirit and method as it operates in diverse types of community life.
In the late 2000 the President of Tanzania announced the decision to remove school fees in primary schools known as the Universal Primary Education (UPE) fee amounting to Tsh. 2000 (USD1.80) annually per pupil as from January 2002. This decision represented an ideological turning point retreating from the established paradigm of cost sharing in provision of essential public services. The argument for abolishing primary school fee is straightforward that school fees and other direct costs that households must bear, represent a significant obstacle to enrollment, especially for the poor and vulnerable children. Abolishing school fees will make it easier for children of all social classes to be enrolled in schools, thus accelerating progress towards the achievement of Education For All (EFA) goals. But ending school fees is no magic wand. Surge in enrollment after fee abolition brings immense challenges to the entire education system by overwhelming the available supply of schools, teachers, and educational materials thereby reducing the quality of education being provided. This block book presents a critical analysis of the challenges of fee abolishing policy in Tanzania.
Contemporary societies have been improving their culture and civilization. In so doing they are trying hard to improve their human resources through the educational system, which is the corner stone of the desired progress. Most scholars emphasize not only using technology in our life creatively, but also preparing learners for the future in the same way. E-learning, as a trend in education, is a significant topic of discussion within institutions for its significance in terms of finances, learner enrollment and meaningful learning.
Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Pedagogy - School System, Educational and School Politics, grade: 71, The Australian National University (Crawford School of Public Policy), course: POGO8035, language: English, abstract: Education is a catalyst for human development. Considering this fact access to basic education is made free and compulsory for all citizens in Bangladesh. Government has been taking numerous policy measures and programmatic interventions to enhance the access to education and thus to achieve the target of 100 per cent access to education by 2015. However this study using secondary research method reveals that despite of achievements in some areas there are still notable gaps between achievements and targets. This study uses an analytical lens constructed with rights and ability notions of access. It analyses the present scenario in access to education to explore to what extent the education system is providing rights of access to education. At the same time it examines the efficiency of the education system and policies to what extent those are able to empower the students with ability to enter, sustain and succeed in basic education. The study has found commendable achievement in enrollment and gender disparity. However, from the ability perspective the education system is still not enough inclusive with ethnic and socio-economic disparity. Special measures need to be taken in the area of access to education of children with special needs, access to education of indigenous peoples and more investments in infrastructure.
An achievement gap refers to the observed disparity on a number of educational measures between the performance of groups of students, especially groups defined by gender, race/ethnicity, ability, and socioeconomic status. The achievement gap can be observed on a variety of measures, including standardized test scores, grade point average, dropout rates, and college-enrollment and -completion rates. While most of the data presented in this article comes from the United States, similar or different gaps exist for these, and other groups in other nations. Such gaps have been used to illustrate social injustice and discrimination against groups, and to justify actions and beliefs based on eradicating these gaps as a matter of public policy. Others disagree as to structural causes of such gaps rooted in class, history, culture, or biology, as to whether color-blind policies that directly target economics and education, or policies based on identity groups such as affirmative action, multiculturalism and progressive education are more effective in achieving equality of outcomes.
