Dying Education in The “Blossoming” Iraqi Democracy

While Anglo Saxon universities are boasting of their so-called “glorious role” in the reconstruction of Iraqi academia (See f.i. U of A helping create an education revolution in Iraq)1, Iraq’s education is dying. From August 1990 onwards, UN sanctions excluded Iraqi education from international scientific developments and banned import of essential educational material such as books and even….. pencils.

From Combat to the Classroom

The transition might not be going as smoothly as it could -- or should. That’s the findings of a new study of 11,000 veterans. We’re breaking down the research from The Washington Post, Inside Higher Ed, Army Times and Marketwire. First to the study, done by The National Survey of Student Engagement. It interviewed thousands of veterans who were either first-year or senior students at four-year schools. The survey showed veterans were less likely to participate in study abroad programs or interact with professors and fellow students. The Student Veterans of America’s Michael Dakduk tells the Washington Post, some of the blame falls on universities.

The Conservative Corruption of Progressive Thought (Reprise)

It is my firm belief that the appropriate attitude for a progressive to bring to every discussion is a firmness of thought and an open mind to divergent ideas. A progressive, by definition, should have the intellectual capacity to recognize that one can neither scream, nor insult, one's way to a solution to any problem. And what should always set a progressive apart from all others is an affinity for humanity, independence of thought, and a fierce determination to remain a seeker of truth above all else, regardless to where that truth may lead.

Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer of Education Benefits (TEB) Program

Career servicemen and women might not make use of GI Bill benefits offered by the military but some of them can convert years of service into the gift of education for their spouses or children. Through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, men and women who provided active duty minimums on or after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks receive tuition and fees for degree and vocational programs as well as housing and book and supply allowances. And eligible bill beneficiaries who have served, or commit to serve, 10 years or more of active duty, can pass all or part of this assistance on to their dependents, according to information on the Department of Defense Web site.

Military Families Receive College Scholarships and Tuition Assistance!

The Department of Defense is the agency responsible for the four branches of military service in this country. Those branches - The Navy, the Marine Corps, Army and the Air Force - are honored by this every citizen in this country on May 16th, the national holiday known as Armed Forces Day. Honoring those who serve was established during President Harry S. Truman's administration. He was the primary motivator to establish a single day to pay our respects to those who perform such a patriotic service for this country. Once compiled under the Department of Defense, the four branches as the Armed Forces received national recognition.

Service Members Receive Veteran’s Affairs Tuition Assistance

Our Armed Forces veterans make quite a few sacrifices, both on the battlefield and throughout their time served, both home and abroad. Some give their lives in the service of the United States. Others come home from battle with injuries. For many, these injuries include permanent disabilities that make it difficult for them to be employed as civilians.

Just How Nutty is the Texas Board of Education?

This board, little-known even to us Texans, has lately risen to national notoriety, making our state's educational system a punch line for comedians everywhere.

The Conservative Corruption of Progressive Thought

Thus, the progressive movement is not so much a political ideology as it is a philosophical attitude towards human behavior. A true progressive, as oppose to an ideologue of any stripe, will always give truth, logical thought, and the interest of humanity priority over ideology. And regardless to how much he or she may admire any politician, he will always hold that politician accountable for truth, justice, and his fidelity to mankind.
