An Educational Mixed Flock

10,000 Birds

I was upstate again this past weekend, collecting Desi from his week with his grandparents, and took a couple of hours early Sunday morning to visit my favorite Saugerties birding spot, the Great Vly. As is to be expected in late August there were many young birds around getting the hang of living life on their own. Green Herons , Eastern Kingbirds , Tree Swallows , Cedar Waxwings , and a host of other species were successful in breeding and there were a lot of birds around.

Education has a mass production mentality

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Today's educational system has a 150-year-old, assembly line, mass production mentality. The Prussian system of compulsory education, upon which many of the systems today are based, has had but one but one aim, namely to produce slaves for industry. The powers-that-be are not interested in an educated people but in a people who have been molded and shaped, through the medium of “education”, into obedient slaves.

"Why Online Education Won't Replace College"

Environmental Economics

What with video lectures, online discussion boards, and learning from the field's top minds, it was easy to believe that online education was the beginning of the end for the ivory tower. If only one or two of these issues existed, the days of higher education as we know it would be numbered. But together these complications prevent online education from inevitably usurping us.

By Dr. Terence Chivers New Education Now is a paper based entirely on Education in the New Age. A central aim of the paper is to determine what it is that the Tibetan expects of the new education, the term He uses to describe His educational ideas. To my surprise, it becomes clear as one reads on, that He expects us to bring about the new education, and He means us to carry it out in the social realm. His ideas about the new education then take over.

Kate Bahn ("a doctoral student in economics at the New School for Social Research and a writer and co-editor at in the Chronicle : So the problem is really twofold: Women have been discouraged and excluded, and those who make an impact anyway have had their contributions discredited.

Parents’ preschool co-op breaks the education mould in Greece

Green (Living) Review

The Greek economic crisis led to devastating cuts in social services, including preschool childcare – but a new model of education is now emerging, with parents forming a co-operative to fill the gap. The Halandri Parents Social Cooperative Enterprise is only the second co-operative care-giving enterprise in Greece – the first was established on Crete a few years ago – and offers a platform for parents to share information about preschool, primary and secondary education.
