Secretary of Education Thomas Duncan said, “The first in a series of changes the secretary is implementing is creating a $2 billion education fund. It will help schools close the achievement gap that has opened up over the past few years. Closing the achievement gap is one of the goals that the secretary and his staff have set out to accomplish.” According to The New York Times, “The Department for Education is planning to increase spending on elementary and secondary schools by $30 million next year, far more than most people were aware of until recently.” In my opinion, this increase in funding and additional focus on closing the achievement gap is excellent news and goes well beyond anything Thomas Duncan has mentioned so far.
I am also delighted that the number of teachers who have been laid off is much lower than it was just a few short months ago. These individuals were not just laid off; they were fired. They could not simply transfer their services to another school. Many were re-trained, but there was no guarantee they would be able to continue to teach. Many others were asked to reapply, which again led to frustration as they found no results. The result of all this is that thousands of teachers are now out of a job.
United States Department of Education
The fact is that the United States Department of Education has a big job ahead of them. Thousands upon thousands of students attend our country’s schools. The schools are the foundation of our nation’s education system. We cannot allow the educational system in our nation to be plagued with corruption and bureaucracy.
To keep our school’s clean
To keep our school’s “clean” and “journalist-free,” some are starting to turn to alternative media such as blogs, podcasts, and YouTube to provide a bit of information to our nation’s schools. There are some excellent blogs out there that provide excellent news for those who need a little education in the classroom. Many of these teachers are using blogs to give a bit of social interaction with their students. It will help the students, but it will also allow teachers to show their skills and positively interact with others.
Condition Improvement Fund
Of course, this type of Condition Improvement Fund is much more difficult when you are at work. For example, many teachers at public schools have been struck because they have been forced to take sick days and have many other responsibilities that have become their responsibility instead of the students’ responsibility. Some of these teachers have even been forced to take maternity leave. It can cause a severe strain on any teacher who is not used to taking care of himself and often becomes stressed out and frustrated.
Many question the wisdom of this type of program. They point out that many schools are closing and that the economy has taken a negative turn. The reality is that there are just not enough jobs. No matter what anyone says, we must continue to open up positions and make sure everyone has a fair shot. It is not the time to turn away from the education of our youth.
New Federal Law
The new federal law is also beneficial to students because it encourages them to move forward and meet their dreams. It has created new opportunities for them. Students who want to go to a specific college or university no longer have to worry about whether they will afford it. New teachers will be hired in more significant numbers because of the latest programs, which will mean a higher quality of education for students.
If you are a teacher and would like to see more students get opportunities in higher education, you may want to look at the new federal grants available for teachers. These opportunities are available and can help you go on with your goals. However, you need to make sure that you take all of your requirements into consideration to qualify for these new federal grants available to you. Be sure to check with the Sallie Mae program or visit the US Department for Education website for more information on applying for these new federal grants available for teachers.
