When speaking about schools and girls, there are two big problems which perhaps threaten the security of girls and the environment. These problems ocurr during menstruation, and deal with unhygienic water and sanitation. How do these problems correlate? Here, we will not discuss menstruation in detail because that is for female-only topics. Menstruation is always faced by some girls in school who are teenagers and in puberty phases. In these phases, most girls sit and study in school. During men...

Culture is inherent in a person because of one's upbringing as well as the environment. So if we need youth to build a world order to bring all human beings to enjoy the basic human rights of liberty, brotherhood and mutual understanding. Children should have these values not just for tolerance, but healthy respect and imbibing of other traditional values as a part of the school curriculum and upbringing. This will ensure that the future will be strife free and harmonious because m...

Oh my God, schools are the determinants of some imperative positive activities of students. The right activities will generate students to be the best students, whereas the deviated activities will bring about students to behave improperly. However, formal regulations determined by educational stakeholders will not absurdly affect students in the right and or in the wrong. Although regulations which are defined by stakeholders as inappropriate, students do not receive an allowance to...

Do you ever wonder why we bother to go to school? Ever ask yourself why it was necessary for you to go through all those many years of classes? Ever think about how it all started? And if it were upon you to decide, would you do it the same way or would you want it done differently? We were all born into a system. A system that has been structured to make us spend almost half of our lives learning how to do this or that. We learn how to execute procedures, how to treat diseases...

Learn from happiness, not by pressure The politicians here in Sweden are worried, the Swedish students results in the PISA tests (Programme for International Student Assessment) are not approving, right now Sweden is low down on the list. Everybody knows that we need to change something in the way Swedish schools are structured.

Inequity and disparity has threatened the realm of education, more notably where gender because girls and boys do not harbor the same equalities. Although, there are plenty of targets made and determined by governments, the targets have not yet been achieved due difficulties. For instance, in Indonesia, there are still inequities of education between students with disabilities and those without. Most of them are marginalized to the specific areas in education. The Millennium Develo...

If you had to leave your house in a hurry what would you take with you? For two young girls from Homs, the answer was easy. It wasn’t clothes or toys, but rather their UNICEF school bags filled with textbooks, pencils and exercise books! The two sisters had been attending school in their village, where they received support from UNICEF. When their family decided to flee the fighting and re-locate to Jordan they didn’t want to leave without their supplies. The girls, their...
