An Orphan Blunder With Witnesses Part 2
I started writing this hub, Part 2 with another view but a comment was challenging from a respectable, wise writer of Hub Pages. I then decided to change perspective as I felt inspired by the comment.
The comment suggested to share what the solutions are for some of the problems and questions that I posed in my hub: An Orphan Blunder With Witnesses . I answered that my objective in that hub was to question, answering at the same time. I also tried to give every reader as witnesses, the adoption of an orphan blunder.
My questions from the hub: "An Orphan Blunder With Witnesses" were mainly based on:
- Is the strategy used to measure achievements by the Department of Education of Puerto Rico a just one as exposed in Circulate Letter N. 01-2006-2007 (link is in Spanish)?
No, it is not a just one because they are using a measuring strategy to evaluate student's achievements the same way in spite of their individuality, environment and achievements; measuring half of their success as failure.
Why then, if knowing and understanding that “something” is not just, it does not end?
When I finished my Associate degree in Education I felt I needed more studies. I finished the Bachelor degree but I still felt I needed more skills. I finished my Master degree wanting to gain the Doctorate degree in Education for more acknowledgment to help students. I realized that it is not about "studies" only.
In order to help students to achieve a success level of independence and meeting goals, it will depend on situations such as: Laws of The Department of Education, State and Federal laws, World Politics, Puerto Rico's statute as a "Commonwealth", culture, goals of each citizen, family values; teachers, parents and students willing to stand up for their rights. The main factor is changing the Secretary of Education every four years with the elections of government parties.
Injustice is an evil worm that grows in each heart; we need to exterminate it. We need to call things by their names. We all need to start standing up for our rights and for other's as well.
I love God and I try to follow His Word. I am experiencing each day, that having Him in my life helps me to understand what justice is all about. I invite you to have a personal experience with God also, and wisdom will be given for you to know how to walk in this world.
You could also write what it is happening in many sources available; pray, talk, strike, join support groups, start community meetings, etc.
We stand up in the name of "Justice" in many ways; join us!
Measuring success in the achievement of individual goals
Is the actual evaluation system really measuring the education's purpose, which is to: discover student's abilities, to perform them and to develop attitudes and ways of behavior enabling them to function as members of the community?
No, it is not measuring the education's purpose, even worse they persecute those that have a vision and declares what I am stating in these hubs.
Parents that decide other educational systems to make educational justice such as "Home Schooling" are being "bombed", not because of the concern with children, but because it represents less money for their pockets. Measuring what is being evaluated has so many different just ways, but the half will not be failure. and federal money will not be presented.
The Law of Nature
I am making a call to all who in one way or the other has felt that their success is being measured in an unjust way, to gain the courage for standing up with all the rights that the Law of Nature gives, and present evidence of achievements.
Half is more than failure!
Success or Failure?
Matthew 17:20 "And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."
Measuring success in the achievement of individual goals should be for positive standards and to give hope; not to make them want to quit because of failure.
Inspire yourself with the life of:
The solutions for some of the problems and questions that I posed in my hub: An Orphan Blunder With Witnesses. Are resumed in:
"There is hope as long as we beat struggles".
Are we going to continue being witnesses of an orphan blunder?
