Vocational Education: Overview and Analysis

In recent decades a wealth of research and critical literature addressing the subject of vocational education has been written. In his book Vocational Education: Purposes, Traditions and Prospects, for example, author Stephen Billet examines the nature of vocational education, and provides both a conceptual framework for understanding what the term means, and how it is manifested both in academic and occupational settings. Billet differentiates between the term “occupation” and “vocation,” and devotes significant discussion to understanding the different forms that vocational education takes in real-world settings. By differentiating between the type of vocational education found in academic settings and that which is found in occupational settings, Billett helps readers better understand how vocational education serves the needs of individuals who are involved in such education and how it serves the larger needs of the societies in which individuals function.

Historical overview of special education in Vocational schools

The students with special needs may apply to the vocational schools of their choice to be equipped with skills of trade. The student counselors in vocational schools work hard to find a suitable placement depending on the interest of the student. The development of special education in the vocational schools can be traced to the elementary schools system even before the introduction of the comprehensive school system (Jorgensen, 2008). In the beginning, the special education concentrated on providing instructions for the pupils who had sensory disabilities. Some of the first schools to be established to provide for special education were catering for people with visual impairments, motor impairments and the hearing impairments. There was a period in which fork education was said to be the responsibilities of the local authorities, the consequence was that a lot of children with disability were excluded from schools during the period the system was undergoing reforms. As a result, the education for the people with disability was provided through philanthropic initiatives of charitable individuals and organizations (Rainforth & York-Barr, 2005).

Introduction

This study is important to me because I intend to discover why Victimization and peer-directed gender are linked. For hypothesis of aggression that is gender linked, to be defined; I will give a description of sub segments of aggression in this paper. I have defined physical aggression as the behaviors that hold the motive of harming or hurting others acts that are physical and include pinching and pushing not forgetting verbal acts which comprise of threatening physical force. These, is mostly observed in boys. I have defines relation aggression as the motive to harm by posing a threat for damage of relationship, or the feeling of being accepted socially and include social groups. These, is viewed as more common in girls in middle and early childhood. In this study, I seek to examine a type of gender victimization that is gender balanced. The researchers who carry out their research on adolescents school-aged children specifically note the harsh female-female interactions that usually consist of victimization of relatives acts from friends, peers (Shaffer &  Kipp, 2010).

Advocacy Research Paper

Introduction

Based on my own experience, as well as on current thinking on the subject, advocacy in early childhood education is no single function.  It is an enormous range of responsibilities and opportunities unlike those of other teachers.  In basic terms, advocacy here is still very much dependent on an active sense of support; the teacher must be mindful of the evolving needs and circumstances of the children, and then employ their influences to make needed recommendations and changes.  Advocacy in this arena is no “safe” course, simply because the teaching professional must act as something of an intermediary between the needs of the children and the larger social and political context (MacNaughton  294).  We are the “go-betweens,” and the ages of the children add great weight to this duty.  Older students develop their own voices; younger children usually cannot express, or sometimes even know, what they require to move forward in learning and growth.  Then, this same advocacy must apply to our peers.  Only when early education teachers share a commitment of the kind mentioned may mutual support benefit all.  Put another way, advocacy is a complex and still very human structure, in which the needs of the children, the influences and potentials of the surrounding environment, and the competencies of the teachers combine to inspire a living process of betterment for the children.  In the following, the mechanics of this process will be discussed, as I draw on both personal experience and the guidance of experts in the field.
