Teen Dating Violence – So, He Hits You
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Suzette_Hinton]Suzette Hinton

You’re so in love. He’s your boo. You walk hand in hand, talking about how lucky you both are to be together. You introduce one of your male friends to him. As you continue to walk, you notice that your boyfriend seems upset. He starts accusing you of flirting. You dismiss his argument as unreasonable and unfounded. He hits you.

The statistics of teen dating abuse are staggering. A study conducted in 2005 by Teenage Research Unlimited revealed that 1 in 3 teenagers reported knowing a friend or peer who has been hit, punched, kicked, slapped, choked or physically hurt by their partner...

Words Do Hurt Me
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Suzette_Hinton]Suzette Hinton

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. That’s a crock! An absolute crock! Whoever wrote this didn’t have a clue.

I concur with Robert Fulghum, US author and Unitarian clergyman, who said, “Sticks and stones will break our bones, but words will break our hearts…” Many of us are getting the sticks and stones of life now because of the pain of words ill-spoken.

Words like “your momma won’t nothing and you won’t be nothing either” wounds our self esteem...

Raising Exceptional Learners
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Victoria_Mims]Victoria Mims

Exceptional Learners are students who are intrinsically motivated to acquire as much knowledge and education as possible knowing the future depends on it! Exceptional Learners are empowered and confident. They understand success in school is attainable. They also know they have what it takes to succeed in school. Some Exceptional Learners are born this way, but the vast majority are raised. They are “raised” to believe success is a given in life if they commit to doing the necessary work. Research has shown time and time again students perform complex tasks when they know someone important believes in them...

Stop High School Drop Out Rate By Addressing the Real Problems Instead of Traditional Symptoms
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Leanne_Hoagland-Smith]Leanne Hoagland-Smith

High school drop out rates are being released nationwide according to a new formula mandated by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) education law.  These rates may cause both taxpayers and parents to once again scratch their heads and ask the simple question:  What is the cause to drop high school given all the billions of dollars that are continually poured into these public schools to ensure acceptable high school graduation rates?

In Indiana, for example, data now suggests that 1 out of 4 s...

Charter Schools – The Solution to Failing Public Schools?

By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Diane_Rabinowitz]Diane Rabinowitz

According the the California Charter Schools Association, there are close to 750 charter schools serving over 250,000 students in California alone. The number of charters has grown by about 50 per year over the past 10 years. Claims of superior student achievement, more funds plowed into classroom resources, and higher levels of parent satisfaction easily explain the growth. Legislators, governors, philanthropists, and both President Bush and President-elect Barack Obama see charters as the solution to massive educational malaise in this country...

Anatomy of the World By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Ilmas_Futehally]Ilmas Futehally

Society is like a human being. Unfortunately, society of today is rather diseased. While some of the diseases are life threatening, none of them are terminal- yet. If diseases can be cured in a manner that they do not recur, we will have a healthy society based on human values. But if the disease persists in even a small part of the world, the human society cannot be said to be healthy.

In order to have a healthy society, every organ has to function without a problem. Every muscle fibre has to do its job. Every cell has to perform its unique function, in its unique environment, effortlessly and ongoing...

Expert Author Ilmas Futehally    The Long Walk to Freedom By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Ilmas_Futehally]Ilmas Futehally Johannesburg is a city of contrasts. There are the rich areas and the poor areas. There are the posh suburbs with huge homes, electric fences running around them and the townships made up of thousands of tin huts surrounded by huge mounds of garbage waiting to be cleared. An aerial view of the city shows the hinterland as dry grasslands. This is where the townships are located. But the city itself is the largest artificial forest in the world. Sandton, the part of the city where we were staying compares favourably to any first world city. It has glass-fronted shopping malls with the latest goods from around the globe...
