The education of a person, understood as the process of socialization and learning aimed at intellectual and ethical development of a person varies depending on various factors. Factors that have different weight in the final result.
It’s amazing what can change someone’s personality depending on where you are born, you go to school, friends or even having climate where you live.
But there is something that to me is more important than that for the configuration of a person’s character, their parents.
Many times we find behaviors that surprise and impact and we tend to find an explanation for this behavior. On many occasions may have been exceptional cases with exceptional circumstances. But let’s stick to the common people, that we see every day in the classroom, on the street, partying … These people have great similarities and great differences, and if you have been in an almost identical, where is the distinguishing factor ? Probably in the education they receive at home.
Some parents who spend time with their children and worry that assimilate certain values, which are that they want to convey, have reported a child to cope with life situations with some confidence. As these values can discern right from wrong.
There are exceptions, as in everything and for everything. But it is true that parents get (if they try) a moral force that no other factor can easily corrupt.
If I just look around me, the changes in behavior that are seen in a segment of young people either are minimal. That is, or one of two things: either the parents have very homogeneous moral values, or there is a very clear lack of care and education leading subjects prone to adapt his personality to the group with which it interacts, drifting people more confident in themselves, whether or not they are right.
The aim of education should be to instill enough confidence in the individual to make their own decisions, encouraging curiosity and critical thinking, by not accepting the imposition of a standard set by means of force or coercion and with Over time, form their own intellectual and moral values.

Student housing in Australia is in high demand. The universities that do offer on-campus housing never seem to have enough space. Most universities refer students to nearby housing known to be safe like http://www.urbanest.com.au/ or they run their own off-campus housing. However, such accommodation is in high demand so if you are looking to attend a university, book your housing as soon as possible.
Most students and their parents try to avoid student housing in private homes or flats in the major cities, particularly Sydney and Melbourne because a shared flat usually doesn’t offer many quiet places to study or community areas where students can safely meet other students. The cost of university housing ranges from around $100 per week for self-catering to around $280 for full board. Private student apartment buildings with better amenities and conveniences charge comparable rates and offer private bedrooms. Items like internet connection, all bills,furniture and contents insurance may be included making private student housing an excellent value.
The better-run private student housing options like http://www.urbanest.com.au/ offer students a safe place to live close to their university and transportation. Staff is typically on-site to offer aid to young men and women who may be away from home for the first time in their lives. Students can enjoy all the perks offered with on-campus housing without losing their privacy or having to share a room with someone they simply are not compatible with.
A few weeks ago the Minister of Education, Harald Beyer, announced a series of measures aimed at strengthening and improving the system, ensuring that all social sectors and quality education more affordable.
The first measure, introduced last April 26, refers to the Tax Reform. This provides that one hundred percent of funds raised will go to education, a figure that would fluctuate between $ 700 and 1,000 million per year (see story). It was also established that the 2012 budget in this area increase by another billion dollars. One of the main sources of these resources will be preschool and school education, which receives 60% of the proceeds. On the occasion, the minister said Beyer, “With these resources we will achieve full coverage for 100% of children 60% more susceptible than attend prekindergarten and kindergarten. In addition, we have a bill in Congress, raising by 20% the amount of the grant for prekindergarten and kindergarten, which take more achieve quality preschool education, key to leveling the playing field, “explained the authority of education. On the other hand, will increase by 21% the amount of the Grant School Preference (SEP) by extending the benefit to the third quintile and extending it to secondary education. Thus, from figures issued by the government, a vulnerable student eighth grade who had a grant of $ 60 000 in 2009, will receive a grant around $ 90 thousand a month after approval of the reform.
For Manuel Sepulveda, a sociologist of education policies of the organization Education 2020, the tax reform announced by the government does not solve the main problems of the education system, but on the contrary, deepens one of the most critical components of school education. “Our calculations estimate about U.S. $ 4 billion annual additional resources necessary to resolve major system problems. Regarding the tax refund to invest in education, Sepulveda added that “this measure does nothing but deepen the terrible segregation in our system. Our country has more segregated at school in the world. In Chile the rich study with the rich and the poor with the poor, which is fatal for the country. Strengthen then the system of shared financing by reducing the tax you pay a small percentage of the population, not to entrench inequality. “
In the new proposal, the State assumes full cost who left out the banks. The credits granted by the State will have a single annual interest rate of 2% (equal to that currently has the Mutual Fund) and will benefit 90% of students in traditional and private institutions, leaving out of this system only 10 % richer. Thus, it is intended to end the Guarantee Credit with the State (CAE). However, for students who have already obtained or are paying it, it will continue to deal in Congress a bill to lower your interest rate from 6% to 2% difference will be canceled by the State to banks. Also change the payment of this credit, as students begin to cancel once you start working and nobody will pay a monthly fee over 10% of their salary. For example, a person who earns 400 thousand dollars would pay only 5% of their income, ie 20 thousand dollars. While the scholarships provided by the government will remain for students with academic merit belonging to 60% more vulnerable, the score you are required to access the benefit may be lowered to 550 points. This is because studies show that the country’s most vulnerable students with difficulty obtained scores above 500 points.
What about entrepreneurship?
One of the issues absent in the ads by the Minister of Education, was the support and encouragement of entrepreneurship education. Item on which there is still much to do, according to Manuel Sepulveda. “Our school system maintain the logic of the professor delivering content to the student standing next to a blackboard, if it appears that we must encourage entrepreneurship, critical thinking, use of technologies. Unfortunately, our education debts are so large that it makes sense to solve problems first before moving on to system changes in concepts like this. Nevertheless, an element that we must begin to consider shortly, “said Sepulveda.
However, Patrick Gutierrez, in charge of undertaking the General Education Division of the Ministry of Education, says that “from 2011, the ministry began working jointly with the Economy, CORFO and Innova Chile to foster entrepreneurship. The first half of last year 38 projects were approved under the program “Support for Entrepreneurial Environment ‘Innova Chile, benefiting more than 39 thousand students in 190 establishments in the country.” On targets for this year on the subject, Gutiérrez stresses that “we are conducting a survey to gather information on the development of skills and entrepreneurial skills in schools and colleges.”
The president of the Partido Popular in Castilla-La Mancha and general secretary of education, Maria Dolores de Cospedal, has said that the defense of the Education and Health makes the current regional government, “not now get their banner and previously it quietly even though they knew “that autonomy” was over. “
During the closing of the PP Provincial Congress in Guadalajara, Cospedal noted that the defense of the public school is made by the regional government, “because what is being done is to avoid having to close and to pay the salaries of teachers , unlike what happened before. “
Similarly, stressed that the protection of public health, the hospital in Guadalajara and the expansion of this center will be done in the future, “makes the PP government of Castilla-La Mancha, in spite of the slab left by the previous government. “
Cospedal regretted that the Castilian-Manchego started out on his career in government without leaving the race on par with the opponent. “We’re not a tie, in Castilla-La Mancha came a least 10,800 million debt left to us,” he added.
“Now we are telling the truth and we can tell citizens how much money is coming in and how much is spent, the public can know how their government spends money,” he argued.
It is said that one must have three good things in life. One is a good doctor, the other is a forgiving priest and the third is a clever accountant. Well, this is just a quote from a movie. But there are times in your life when you come across all three. Think about MSGR Brown. Monsignor Charles Brown, called as Charlie by friends, has been indeed one of the most dynamic figures in the field of religion and pastoral works in New York, the Vatican and other countries as well. And he is now receiving all the praise that he rightly deserved for his efforts.
He began the career as a pure New Yorker in his origins and education. This has been because of his birth in the city and his affiliations as well. MSGR Brown began with a keen interest in history and religion. He enrolled in the University Of Notre Dame and completed the course of history at the university. After doing well in that subject, theology and medieval history took much of his interest and enthusiasm. To do well in these subjects, he decided to first join the Oxford University to get a qualification of theology. This done, he joined the University Of Toronto.
He passed with flying colors. Then he went on to earn a doctorate in Sacramental Theology in the Pontifical University In Rome. This made him for the whole Vatican City. Though he missed a chance to enroll for more education, he worked closely with the future Pope Benedict and this made him quite popular in the Vatican Circles. Thus, he has earned the reputation of being a benevolent and well-meaning priest in both America and the Vatican. However, these are not the only accomplishments of this young and dynamic priest as the future would really prove.
He went on to become a major priest in New York and he would work well in his pastoral policies and reforms for public welfare as well. He had become rather popular with the other priests in the city and the Irish and Italian communities in the city. Also, it has been now found that Msgr. Brown has worked for public welfare in a number of other countries and nations. In these nations, Charlie has done a lot for the Missions Of Charity in the different countries. So, now that he is expected to be the next nuncio to Ireland from the Vatican, things are looking good.
