Educational Psychology and Child Development
KNOWLEDGE OF STUDENTS
Bronfenbrenner’s model is a theory of educational psychology that studies human development over time. He came up with four ecological systems that an individual interacted with. Microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, and macrosystem. The first layer (microsystem) Is the first and immediate layer of the nested systems. It holds the human relationships and interactions with surroundings (ex. Parents, siblings, school environment). The second layer (mesosystem) is relationships between the family and school teachers or administrators (direct interaction). The third layer is the exosystem

5 Codes of Power
The idea of power is one that mankind has been struggling to define since the beginning of time.
The cavemen believed power to be a show of brute strength. The Roman rulers believed power
was given from the Gods and Goddess of the sky. In today’s society, the president of the United
States uses his power to make impactful decisions that affect our country and the world. One
thing is quite clear, the word power has a plethora of meanings.

To Pledge or Not to Pledge
Students in American public schools should not be required to recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” everyday.
First of all, repeating the “Pledge of Allegiance” on a daily basis does not signify that the values within the pledge are true or genuine. Dale Kennedy, an eighth grade teacher at Thomas Law Reed School, argues that not reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance” each day can cause “… our republic [to] not stand the pressures of time“ (4). Nonetheless, the reality is that simply declaiming the “Pledge of Allegiance” continuously does not bring the earnest desires and wishes within this patriotic passage to life. John Green, a teacher

They came to America to get away from the harsh conditions and socio-political turmoil. His parents, hoping for their children to do better than they did, pushed for educational excellence.

Justice and its implications on South Africa’s education system.
In South Africa, there is a huge difference in urban schools and rural schools as urban schools have better resources at hand to teach effectively and the learning environment is better while poor schools aren’t able to afford much resources to be able to teach children effectively. This is why there is a huge need for social justice within the context of education and this is mainly through the notion of distributive justice, S. Pendelbury and P.

Some women did work outside of the house but their work was never glorified or respected as much as when the work was done by men. The workforce of women at this time was made up of lower class females and minorities and still was much smaller than that of the male workforce.
