Education system in Iran – SAT Essay

Introduction The education system in Iran is currently highly centralized. It is divided into higher education and k-12 education. It is the Ministry of education that works with the supervision of the Ministry of Science and Technology that controls the k-12 education in the country. The higher education institutes are both private and publicly owned. The adult literacy rate is 85% in Iran, which is pretty bad when you consider that the adult literacy rate in Sir Lanka (a third-world country) is 98.1%. Still, the regional average with countries surrounding and in the region is 62%, so they are ahead of quite a few countries. The funding for education in Iran is now more than it is in many surrounding countries as the Iranian economy has improved a little in…

Education system in Indonesia – Historical essay

There were education systems during the Hindu-Buddhist civilization era, and they were called the karsyan, which is actually a place of hermitage. The meaning of education back in those days was meant to bring a student closer to god. The Islamic state that grew into Indonesia removed a lot of Hindu-Buddhist tradition and replaced it with Islamic traditions. During this time, Islamic boarding schools became more and more common. It was the Dutch that first introduced elementary education in Indonesia, though at the time it was only meant for European people in Indonesia and other Europeans that lived or visited there. In 1870, the Dutch Ethical Policy was created. The aim of this was to allow native Indonesian people to get an education at the schools that the Dutch people…

Education Should Be Free for Everyone

In my argumentative essay, I discuss the ethical side of having a free education system. I discuss the positive sides and the negative sides of free education, and I focus mostly on having free higher education since we already have free education up to High School graduation levels. I conclude with a discussion about the actions of colleges and Universities and how they would inevitably make the ethical discussion mute from a student’s perceptive since the burden of ethics would fall upon higher education institutions in a world where they are given plenty of incentive to act immorally. From an ethical perspective, it seems unfair that people who have less money are going to miss more opportunities. Ethically, opportunities should be open for all people. Though it may be true…

Should Education Be Cheaper?

Education is already free. Most people in most countries get an education up to and maybe even beyond High School and they get it for free. The question is if higher education should be cheaper, and the fact is that it should be. The Economics of Why Higher Education Is So Expensive Back during the Clinton administration, the immoral president was doing one thing right. He was slowly growing the economy in the US without driving the country into further debt. More jobs were being created and workers with degrees were in bigger demand. Since the country could afford it, and since the country needed more skilled workers, the Clinton administration decided to make it easier for people to get student loans. (Krueger, Alan, and Bowen, 1993). This was fine…

Alone by Edgar Allan Poe Analysis

I found the poem “Alone” to be very self-indulgent and the work of a person that is both his own self saboteur, and the work of a person that enjoys the comfort of being miserable. It was hardly a surprise to me, as Edgar Allan Poe did seemingly invent the goth craze that still exists today. Here is how I came to that conclusion. The poem “Alone” may be a creative work, but it pays to consider the history of the writer in order to put his thoughts into context. He was born into a family of traveling actors and as a result, they were very poor. Edgar’s father left the family and his career as an actor, whereupon his mother died, shortly followed by his father. Both of his…

Economic Essay about imperialism

Imperialism is the act of expanding one’s empire through the use of politics, intimidation and military force. In my essay, I explain the economic pros and cons to imperialism. More land means more resources If you are going to invade somewhere to increase the amount of land you have, then it is better to invade a place that has rich resources that may be exploited for the betterment of your empire. Invading places that have few resources is not a good idea because you may waste more resources than you gain. It may be viable as a strategic position, in which case it may be worth the resources, otherwise it is only wise to invade and annex places that will help build your empire and enrich it in some way.…

Download Sites Violate Copyright Rules

Twenty years ago, the sentence that comprises the title of this essay didn’t exist in the mainstream, instantly recognisable way that it is today. With an average of more than one computer or device per household around the world, the temptation and ease at which a person can download media illegally has never been higher. Once seen as something that only the bravest and most brazen of internet users engaged in, downloading television episodes, films, songs and eBooks illegally is now something that is practised by even the otherwise most law abiding citizens across the globe, and this arises from a generally held belief that a simple click of a button just isn’t the same as going in to a store and filling your shopping bag up without paying.

Discrimination and Prejudice in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Both discrimination and prejudice were a common occurrence in the early part of the 1900s and continued for many decades into the 1960s and 1970s. In “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, many instances of discrimination and prejudice are evident. In today’s society, the issues, words and situations in the book are horrifying and upsetting. However, there was a time when it was not only commonplace, but also acceptable. Though the book takes place in the 1930s, long after slavery was abolished when the Civil War ended, racism was still rampant through many parts of the United States. Not only does Lee present the obvious bigotry of the times, but she also slides in subtle ways that black people were mistreated during the times. The reason this works for…
