Attention all women! President Barack Obama has increased the federal Pell Grant to $ 5,500 to help more mothers to continue their education. Most women cannot continue their education because they have to take care of their children. Family needs also overtook other things, such as the mother’s dream to go back to school. Plus, there is a concern of the additional costs while studying. Obama scholarships for mothers, however, will help the mother to pursue the dream of education, including those who cannot leave their homes for a long period of time through online education.
Not everyone though eligible for Moms Return to School Financial Aid. There are certain conditions for a mother to be eligible for this scholarship. The program prioritizes mothers were low income bracket, which means they are receiving very low wages. The government is willing and ready to help not only with the cost of school, but also child care and the cost of living, housing and bills. The best thing about this scholarship for mothers is that you do not have to be away from your children with the opportunity to earn your degree from home. Distance learning is one of the options the program offers especially for busy mothers.
Don’t waste any more time. This is your chance to earn a degree and later on, have the job that you’re really interested in. With a higher education, you can expect better jobs and of course, a higher salary. Scholarships for mom are a great offer to take.
Michael Gove has just abandon plans to scrap GCSE and replace it with a universal Baccalaureate Certificate in English. The Tory Education Secretary beforehand to prevent the “dumbing down” of GCSEs with the focus all on board exams universal program that will manage all the examinations at the end of each course is 2 years. It also means that the importance of the course will be dropped. The proposed remedial education has been replaced by less radical changes to the league table and the introduction of the 5 subjects as “universal” – Michael Gove said that the universal courses to be taken by most students.
There is little information released by Gove mentioned changes to the course more practical. This leads me to worry about what the system will be held for non-academic students more.
There is growing opposition to the original plan Michael by teachers, exam boards and even the Liberal Democrats called the veto in Gove. In all this controversy, serious doubts emerged about the actual benefits of Gove’s planned reforms. Among Liberal Democrats, there are fears that these changes will bring back the two-tiered education system is seen when O levels still on the table. While I was pleased that the plan was canceled, I was worried about the future stability and the end of the British education system. Both students and parents have the right to have such a clear understanding of the system and how they benefit from the change. It becomes increasingly difficult for teachers to provide appropriate information in the GCSE system; confusion is likely to have a significant effect on student performance and guidance.
Rather than focussing on the individual education of students, schools seem to have a much greater focus on where they stand in the league tables. More often than not, this means that a schools position on the table may not be a good reflection of how well the children are being taught. In my opinion, there should be a greater emphasise on inspection boards such as Ofsted. Monitoring student activity and performance on the ground level is the best way of getting reflective results; it would give schools goals aligned with helping their students, rather than being at the top of the league table.
The UK education system doesn’t need massive reform as Michael Gove was proposing. It needs strength and focus. Students, teachers and parents should have full confidence in the system that they’re involved in, however at the moment – that confidence simply isn’t there. Instead of universalizing education, I think that the government should be enforcing more specific goals on individual schools. There are over 3400 (public) secondary schools in the United Kingdom, and each one of them has its own needs and focuses (this is more so with the introduction of academies); a new system needs to be dynamic to cater to each of these schools, instead of following the ‘one size fits all’ model that was being pushed by Mr Gove.
