    How to Stand Out in Law School

    How to Stand Out in Law School

    You made it through your undergraduate and you passed through the grueling application process. You may think that all of your work is done, but the work is just about to begin. Law school is going to be different from college, just like college was different than high school. There will still be tests and papers and thinking until your head hurts, but there will be some things that are different from college. You will get to take classes that are all specific to law and the practice of it so there will not be general classes that cover geology or humanities. This is good because you can focus on what you want to practice—law—but the classes will go into a lot more depth than your previous college classes did.

    Why Underfunding is Hurting Education

    Why Underfunding is Hurting Education

    Funding can be a problem when money is not allocated properly. Some areas can get over funded while other areas do not have enough money to provide essential items for their students or participants. Schools can be one of the places that are not able to have enough funding to provide learning resources for students. This can take a toll on parents, teachers, students and even taxpayers. Underfunding can put a stress on the community and can create a lot of tension and fighting if funding issues are not resolved.

    How to Handle Being Bullied at School

    How to Handle Being Bullied at School

    Having been bullied throughout my school career, I can honestly say that the current school system rewards bullies more than it punishes them. Bullying was the reason why I dropped out, and why most of my friends do not have college degrees either.

    Sports as a Theme of Your Essay

    Aside from preparing your academic transcripts, requesting people to write your reference or recommendation letters, and doing well in admission tests by obtaining high scores, there is one more requirement in your college application that you should never underestimate. It is your college essay.

    Home Education

    Deciding to homeschool is a tremendous decision. It is one that will impact your whole family. Homeschooling is not merely a matter of devoting seven hours, five days a week, with summers off to the education of your child. Homeschooling creates a 24/7 classroom.

    How to Choose a Private School for Your Child

    I like to think of myself as a very unique person when it comes to my schooling. I'm a veteran of almost every type of school system the United States offers. I spent most of my elementary and middle school in the public school system. I then switched to a private middle school, followed by vocational schooling.

    Broken Language

    In high school, I was one of the many kids who chose to take Spanish as their language elective. In the United States, many people speak Spanish! What a great language to learn, or so I thought.

    Six Working Ways to Engage Students in Volunteering

    Six Working Ways to Engage Students in Volunteering

    We can’t deny the fact that students are an important part of our society today. Their level of social awareness, their keenness in sharing knowledge, and their great enthusiasm for a cause that interests them make them a good fit for volunteers. Being a volunteer involves spending your time and energy in an activity that isn’t directly for your good, but rather for others.

The problem with getting students to volunteer is that their interests as young folk might not necessarily be what you want them to volunteer for. Below are six ways to encourage and engage students in volunteering.
