Education

Education is the giving or receiving of systematic instruction in one or several areas, and encompasses the theory and practice of teaching. Education is an age-old institution which has prepared people for living and functioning in society by passing on knowledge and values, and is almost universally considered an important aspect of life.

Before the introduction of literacy (reading and writing), education consisted of the oral dissemination of information. Skills were learned by observation and imitation, often from a skilled member of the society. The development of writing allowed for information to be recorded and passed to people outside of the immediate group. The first institutions of higher education came into being over a thousand years ago, although in many societies formal education was offered only through religious institutions or to the wealthy. In fact, the widespread teaching of literacy has only been in place for about 200 years or so.

Today, formal education is given by trained and professional teachers, and usually involves the implementation of a formal curriculum standardized across institutions of learning. Teaching is considered an important role in most societies, and involves gaining and maintaining licenses and certificates. In the U.S., formal education usually comprises an elementary education and secondary education (high school) and sometimes these two are subdivided into elementary school, middle school and high school. Universities and colleges are considered part of higher education, and more people attend college today than ever before. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 68.1 percent of high school students who graduated in 2010 in the U.S. are enrolled in colleges or universities.

Education in the U.S. today also involves the fields of special education and early childhood education, as well as the teaching of English as a foreign language. Some of the issues dealt with by U.S. teachers today include dealing with budget cuts in the education system, economic disparity among students, and keeping students enrolled through high school.

They can die from this,They need the timavins !!! give him about a inch 2 times a day,now your pup has all the good stuff he needs.Don't use cheap food..No k mart/walmart crap. organic food is the best,The first ingredient should be MEAT not corn/oats or any other fillings. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions. I don't know everything about pups,been around them for over 18 years.I enjoy learning new stuff every day.You can NEVER know too much about the pupsWet food should be used as a flavor not as a diet. Give him dry food with a spoon full of wet (it just makes the dry yummyPlease go get the timavins,
