• Is the American education system that bad!?

    Best answer: the educational systems are different. some of what yo describe is not required in American schools -- under the theory that parents will teach their children anyway and thus valuable class time should not be wasted on them.

    So, I am 20 years old, a software developer in training. Very active in the online world. Play video games next to my work. But a few months ago I happen to meet this woman. Her name ill keep anon. But. The more I talked to her the more I got attached. She felt the same way. Sorta. She's a bit skeptical about long distance relationships and I think she find's it hard to swallow and accept sometimes. So we just stay friends. She lives in Sydney, Australia whilst I am in the United States. State of Mississippi. Everyday I feel constant dread and desperation to see her. I have a mentor who constantly tells me I'd probably never make it to her nor it will work out. Any word of advice or inspiration?

  • How to pay attention to reading articles that aren’t intresting?

    Best answer: Hm. That sounds like you suffer from ADD. I suggest getting specific medication; it can help you focus on things that fail to motivate you.

  • Why doesn’t my Spanish teacher call me by my middle/preferred?

    Ever since I’d say about October, I decided to go by middle name, because I find it to sound more intellectual and professional. It just overall sounds better as well.

    Ever since I’d say about October, I decided to go by middle name, because I find it to sound more intellectual and professional. It just overall sounds better as well. My Spanish teacher however for an unknown reason appears to decline this. I have never approached her and told her about it. I began to write it on the name section of my papers and I continued by using my middle name on quizlet live and kahoot. I know she doesn’t forget this at all, but rather she openly denies this. She frequently announces the winners on quizlet live, and when my team wins, she’ll go over my user nam/middle name and say my first name. Also on one occasion we were playing kahoot and I logged in as my middle name. We have a group of guys that clown around in the class and always type up some stupid usernames. She than said, I want honest names and proceeded to call out my username along with that group, even though I sincerely want to be called that. I’m not sure what the issue is. I figured it may be that one of my classmates goes by a diminutive of that same name, which is why I put my last initial on games. I don’t understand, I thought teachers were okay with preferred names. What most likely is she thinking, to cause her to go against it? Thank you for your time.

  • Why is evolution taught in public schools?

    Best answer: Jesus and creationism are beliefs without a foundation of proof. Evolution is a science with sufficient proof to establish it as fact. Fairly simple idea, really.

    A week ago somebody left a nasty note on the teachers desk. I don't even know what it was meant to say exactly, just that it was about how awful etc. the teacher was. Our head of year got involved and for some daft reason thought the best way to determine who had wrote it was to make us get our books one at a time and to compare the handwriting. She asked for my book, i gave it, and two seconds later 'Some of your handwriting appears to be here'. To which I responded 'I haven't done anything whatsoever' to which she said 'Sorry I don't believe you'. Then I said 'Are you a handwriting expert' To which I got no response. Two other people's handwriting were 'similar' and us three are being forced to stay in each break until we give in. I am MAD. I have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with any of this, and how some **** tries telling me my handwriting is in the letter. What do I do? I'm thinking of sticking to my guns and refusing to serve detention after detention for nothing whatsoever. Please help me I am desperate

  • Is it wrong to teach American kids about Palestine? Why or why not?

    Best answer: Understanding history and learning the Truth is very important and essential as regards being able to logically deal with such problems as the Palestinian issue.

    Best answer: Understanding history and learning the Truth is very important and essential as regards being able to logically deal with such problems as the Palestinian issue.
    To truly understand you MUST go Way back in history to earlier than 600 BCE to begin to get the full history of the issues involved. Even check out various sources for the history because each side in that issue will tell the history differently.
    To keep the answer to your question as simple as possible, both are incorrect since neither approach would properly educate those children.

  • What happens to a school that has a bad reputation?

    Best answer: If it's a public school, nothing much happens. The unions won't let them fire the bad teachers or close the schools down. And the teachers they hire are poor because good teachers won't apply for jobs with schools having bad reputations. It's a never-ending cycle. If it's a private school,... show more

    If it's a private school, they go out of business because parents will not pay big bucks to put their kids into a bad school. But private schools rarely have bad reputations because they can fire the bad teachers or replace bad management before the reputations get that bad.

    I’ve missed many days of school in the past week and I’ve been warned not to miss school anymore by my teacher. It was fine with me. Today, I woke up after falling asleep early the day before, then I realize I have a test that is FORTY PERCENT of my final grade. I don’t know if I should go and fail the test or miss school one last time, even if I was warned. I’m a straight A student and I really care about my grades. I’m scared that my grades will be decreased because of me missing school, but this test is almost half of my final grade and I didn’t learn at all.

But whenever we have to talk he always stands like 2 inches from my face even if i back up, and every time he sees me now he's gotten into this habit of touching my arm constantly, even if I'm just walking past him. The thing that makes me the most uncomfortable is that whenever he's speaking to me his eyes are just scanning my entire body, and idk how im supposed to even react to that especially when he's doing it right in front of my face

  • Does a college education out weigh someone who has done the job for 15 yrs?

    Best answer: Companies often are not looking for someone who does the current job well. They're looking for someone with potential for growth- and a college degree shows the ability to learn.
    It is, of course, always possible for the long-term employee to go back to school and get a degree. Many people do it.
