The word "socialism" often implies two quite different phenomena: A doctrine and an appeal based on it, a program for changing life, and A social structure that exists in time and space. The most obvious examples include Marxism as contained in the "classic" writings of Marx and others and the social structure that exists in the U.
Achievement in our schools 78 [page 3] Foreword by the Secretary of State This, the first White Paper of the new Government, is as much about equipping the people of this country for the challenge of the future as it is about the Government's core commitment to equality of opportunity and high standards for all.
Partnership for change means commitment from everyone: Valuing our teachers and celebrating success go hand in hand with raising expectations and then acting to fulfil them. Everyone has a part to play.
Children begin to learn about the world from the moment they are born. Families are the first teachers, helped by health visitors and others. At school, the caretaker and the school dinner lady, the school secretary and the classroom assistant are all part of the team.
In seeking the widest possible consultation through the summer and into the autumn, acting on that consultation and legislating where necessary to achieve our objectives, we wish to continue the process of creating a new culture in this country.
We want to change attitudes towards education and foster a realisation that education matters to everyone. To overcome economic and social disadvantage and to make equality of opportunity a reality, we must strive to eliminate, and never excuse, under-achievement in the most deprived parts of our country.
Educational attainment encourages aspiration and self-belief in the next generation, and it is through family learning, as well as scholarship through formal schooling, that success will come.
We are talking about investing in human capital in the age of knowledge. To compete in the global economy, to live in a civilised society and to develop the talents of each and every one of us, we will have to unlock the potential of every young person.
By doing so, each can flourish, building on their own strengths and developing their own special talents. We must overcome the spiral of disadvantage, in which alienation from, or failure within, the education system is passed from one generation to the next.
To succeed we need the commitment, imagination and drive of all those working in our schools and colleges, if we are to set aside the doubts of the cynics and the corrosion of the perpetual sceptics. We must replace the culture of complacency with commitment to success.
That is why, in offering a "can do" Government, we are asking for a "can do" profession. We are placing great emphasis in the months ahead on getting initial teacher training right: Resources are not the sole answer to delivering our objectives, but we do recognise that an end to cut-backs and a commitment to supporting best practice are crucial to success.
The Government's first Budget was our first step in fulfilling the pledge that a greater share of national income should be spent on education. It was a sign of our commitment to education and our determination to deliver our standards agenda. Priority is indeed being given to education, to employability and to investment for the future.
This is a partnership between Government and the education service, between LEAs and schools, parents and school governors.
I ask you to join with us in using your own creativity to answer as well as ask questions. In this way we can work together to meet the challenge and to attain the solution.
I ask you to join with us in making the crusade for higher standards a reality in every classroom and every household in the country.
Together we can do it. David Blunkett [page 5] By At the end of each chapter is a summary of what we aim to achieve over the lifetime of this Parliament by putting our proposals in place. All the summaries are brought together here. There will be a greater awareness across society of the importance of education and increased expectations of what can be achieved.
Standards of performance will be higher. Our overall approach to policy will be underpinned by six principles: High quality education for all 4 year-olds whose parents want it.
An early years forum in every area, planning childcare and education to meet local needs. A network of early excellence centres to spread good practice.
Effective assessment of all children starting primary schools. Class sizes of 30 or under for 5, 6 and 7 year-olds.
At least an hour each day devoted to both literacy and numeracy in every primary school. National guidelines and training for all primary teachers on best practice in the teaching of literacy and numeracy.
A great improvement in achievements in maths and English at the end of primary education, to meet national targets.
Each school will have its own challenging targets to raise standards, and will be held responsible for achieving them.Bermuda Government since July 19 Legislature, Constitution, Executive, Judiciary, Voters. By Keith Archibald Forbes (see About Us) exclusively for Bermuda Online.
Introduction. Bermuda is a parliamentary representative democratic dependency. [page 4] the UK must now compete in increasingly competitive international markets where the proliferation of knowledge, technological advances and the information revolution mean that labour market demand for those with higher level education and training is growing, particularly in business, and that there is a greater premium on the products of the country's research base;.
Discuss the benefits and weakness of bureaucratic discretion to public sector management. How does administrative responsibility contribute to the attainment of public interest? Why is the issue of illegal immigration a good.
The Benefits and Weaknesses of Bureaucratic Discretion. One of the first steps in developing a National NCD Multisectoral Action Plan (NCD MAP) is to have a good understanding of health needs, risks and context prevailing in the country through the process of situation analysis.
Political corruption is the abuse of public power, office, or resources by elected government officials for personal gain, by extortion, soliciting or offering bribes. Education of the public on waste management issues and other environmental conservation concepts is pivotal to development of an environmentally informed nation.
The Waste Management Act that lawfully forbids littering should be enforced.
