What Does Education Mean to You? | UNICEF

Children around the world share the same desire to go to school. Yet, millions lack the opportunity to do so.

Although more children are in school and learning than ever before, nearly 58 million children of primary school age are still out of school.

Let’s make sure #EVERYchild has a fair chance to learn: http://uni.cf/1K4UmoW

World Without Teachers

World Without Teachers

Tweet: http://ctt.ec/8fbV7 | Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1SjHii5

This Teacher Appreciation Month, we want to honor the teachers around the world. They not only taught us the fundamentals of our education – reading, writing, mathematics – but also became our role models and inspiration for life. It’s no doubt that teachers have had a profound impact on our lives. This month, as students are graduating and finishing up the school year, Jubilee Project is proud to share with you “World Without Teachers” a short video that takes a moment to look back on the teachers in our lives and how they have shaped who we are.

Everybody knows that teachers make a huge difference in our lives. Yet less than 10% of top-tier undergrads express any interest in teaching as a career. Without more young people going into the field of education, it is a real possibility that some children will grow up without the impactful influence of great teachers in their lives.

Jubilee Project is proud to partner with Participant Media’s TEACH campaign to encourage passionate, creative, innovative young people to consider teaching as a career. Together, let’s help build a world where every student has a great teacher to guide them along the way.

*Special thanks to everybody to shared their stories with us.*

Should We Eat Bugs? – Emma Bryce

Should We Eat Bugs? – Emma Bryce

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/should-we-eat-bugs-emma-bryce

What’s tasty, abundant and high in protein? Bugs! Although less common outside the tropics, entomophagy, the practice of eating bugs, was once extremely widespread throughout cultures. You may feel icky about munching on insects, but they feed about 2 billion people each day (Mmm, fried tarantulas). They also hold promise for food security and the environment. Emma Bryce makes a compelling case for dining on bugs.

Gaston Caperton on Lure of Elite Educational Institutions

Gaston Caperton on Lure of Elite Educational Institutions

Question: Is it a positive development that elite universities are seeing more applications for fewer spots?Caperton:    Well, I think first of all that if we didn’t have electronic applications that you wouldn’t see quite that same kind of growth.  I think, second of all, is that, I see that as a good sign because those institutions are recognized as being institutions of great excellence, worldwide excellence, so if more and more students think of themselves as world class scholars, it’s great that there’s that many kids that want to go to the very best schools.  When I talked to parents and students, what I emphasize is there’s so many great schools in America, and as a minister told me once when I was quite young, and he was talking about the people that came to him for advice, he said, I told him that [there’s not this] college or university you’d go to that you can learn all they have to teach you.  So, I believe that we have a great number of great institutions in this country and your future then depend upon going to the very best, that people can get a great education, and if you look at people that are successful in this country, not all of them have gone, certainly many of them haven’t gone to what we would consider the most elite schools in this country.
