Capunoa, and Xylee Javierb a,b School of Economics, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City 1101 Philippines Abstract While education is universally held to enhance a child human development, policies must still contend with parental biases. Here, we investigate if school attendance of young household members aged 6-12 years old varies with their kinship ties to the household heads in the Philippines. Applying probit regression techniques on a dataset culled from the five rounds of the Annual Poverty Indicators Survey, we find that the probability of attending school of the head's own child is about 2.9-percentage points greater that that other relatives in the same age group, controlling for income and other factors.

...Maloy Chapter 11 Discussion Question #5 To what extent would you be willing to contact parents of low- achieving students when you become a teacher? Do you think this should be part of the classroom teacher’s responsibilities? As a teacher it will be my job to create an equal learning experience to every child in my classroom. I will need to make modifications and exceptions for students who preform under his or her peers. These modifications may include extra time for assignments, extra help in specific subjects either in class or after class or even modifying the assignments to a level in which they understand. If and when I see that these modifications are not helping the student progress, I will then know it problem outside the classroom that is causing this child to struggle. I believe that it is my responsibility to report to higher authorities that a child is consistently doing poorly. For example, a principal should be notified. At this point it is also important to have a meeting with the child’s parents to inform them of their child’s problem. This meeting will allow the principal and myself to talk to the parents about the reasons why a child is doing poorly. We can determine if there is a problem going on in the home, in the classroom or if the problem originates from the lack of parental support. This information can be used to determine ways to help this student in the classroom and at home. It does not stop here. Throughout the school year I...

...Piaget developed the theory that the best way to study children was in their natural environment. The aim of this assignment is to study children in their natural environment just as Piaget and gain first hand evidence of their developmental process. The procedure for this experiment is to document the actions observed and to use the observations as evidence for the child study. To gain an efficient amount of evidence the observation must consist of at least 20 hours but the hours must be spread out within a 2-4 month time span. The student is observed in the same setting, so he is comfortable enough to “act natural.” The first class I observed was Ms. Alison’s class which consisted of 12 boys and 2 girls, age 4. Ms. Alison is a new inexperienced teacher. The second class I observed was Ms. Corney’s class which consisted of 9 girls and 8 boys, age 5. Ms. Alison is an experienced teacher, of whom has been teaching for 5+ years. During the instructed time in each class, observation will be taken of the students peer to peer communication, academic ability during curriculum activities and each child’s individual progress within their own development. The student I observed is an African American/Hispanic, male age 5. He can understand Spanish and is learning English. For the sake of this experiment I will refer to the student as “Michael.” He has black hair and dark brown eyes. Michael is high energized, happy boy whom enjoys playing with toy cars. He is learning to......

...Executive Summary A request for a proposal was set by Jennifer Childs, Manager of a mid-size pharmaceutical company, to her three General Managers to propose on the reinvestment of an additional profit of $2,000,000 into the company. She has strained that the proposal should lead to a reduction of cost to the company and or increase in sales. The money would be allocated to one or more of the affected areas. Proposed areas to improve on are: * The Product development department needs upgrading in more laboratory equipment and scientists but the costs involved could absorbed the whole profit amount * Production department needs to be restructured by using employee teams. This could be a good idea, the reasons are as follows: * Suggestions made by employees could be implemented * Cost not too much if work spread over a period of time The only problem we foresee is that Tyler should convinced Jennifer as the things that her father built, weigh up very high for her. * Operational department needs upgrading. Computer equipment can`t handle the volume of transactions – this would require buying new software but this could led to a loss of disruption to the legacy system. It would be suggested that this project being breakdown into phases. * A proposal was made by the Marketing manager to increase his budget to employ more sales representatives, rather than allocating funds to projects as he believe that this will increase sales.

According to the College of Social Work, in social work professional practice we work with some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised individuals, families and communities, often at the most difficult points in their lives. When parents do need help, they still want to be in control and indeed in the vast majority of families they should be it is important that a balance between intervention and assistance is maintained. (2009 NIRFPS) Since the late 1980’s there has been an increasing awareness of the impact of oppression and discrimination on clients and communities (Thompson, 2001). In 1997 Thompsons Theory called the PCS model recognises oppression and discrimination from a Personal, Cultural and Structural perspective. In the Code of Ethics of Social Work it is stated, respect for human rights, commitment to promoting social justice and professional integrity are at the core of social work practice throughout the world, but in actual practice of implementing the law there is a stark......

...disorganization etc. In terms of communicational problems, Sally, who later as a co-director of the company, failed to communicate with their subordinates effectively. What’s more, when it comes to human resource managing, there had been a leakage in the formation of HR department which led to Sally and Andrew’s divergence in hiring and dismissing of Jennifer.  This can also be a result of lack of communication. * Leading In the early 2000, Sally, Andrew’s wife, resigned her old job and joined ServIT as the executive of Sales department. Meanwhile, the number of full time employee grew larger. As the only two leaders in the firm, Andrew and Sally have totally different styles and their approaches of managing and leading a team varies in many ways. Andrew, as the founder of the company, is regarded as a supportive leader while Sally is quite the opposite. Sally’s abuse of her power had led to the demise of unity, effectiveness and loyalty. * Motivating After 2004, Sally started performance evaluation technique but she did not distribute the results to the employees to motivate them to do good work. Secondly, Jennifer, working as the graphic designer, has a habit of working with music to boost her work efficiency but Sally did not allow her to play music.
