The Panama Papers Show That There's Enough Money to Solve the World's Problems - It's Just in the Wrong Hands

The Panama Papers Show That There's Enough Money to Solve the World's Problems - It's Just in the Wrong Hands | Banco de Aulas |
The money we desperately need to fix the world's growing problems is there, but we have an economic and political system that ensures it stays in the wrong hands, for a reason no more noble than greed. A better world is possible, but only by challenging the dominance and privilege of the rich.

How poverty influences a child's brain development

Science is figuring out exactly how the damage is done and what steps can be taken to halt and then heal it

David Hain's curator insight, January 29, 2013 5:11 AM

Reminded me of stories of the Romanian orphans from years ago and the power of a hug.

Audrey's comment, January 29, 2013 5:20 AM
There is is the possibility that poverty may prevent the stimulation needed for children to develop their curiosity which leads to learning. Poverty could be confining in terms of not sufficient nutrients in order to help develop the neural network. Also poverty seems to isolate children from social interactions which is critical for development;

What the U.S. can’t learn from Finland about ed reform

What the U.S. can’t  learn from Finland about ed reform | Banco de Aulas |
Finland comes up in nearly every conversation about education reform these days. What, it is asked, can the United States learn from Finnish educational success?


Pasi Sahlberg shares what the US can't learn from Finnish education. Finland can show the US what equal opportunity looks like. Americans cannot achieve equity without first implementing fundamental changes in their school system. 


1. Funding of schools. Finnish schools are funded based on a formula guaranteeing equal allocation of resources to each school regardless of location or wealth of its community.


2. Well-being of children: All children in Finland have, by law, access to childcare, comprehensive health care, and pre-school in their own communities. Every school must have a welfare team to advance child happiness in school.


3. Education as a human right: All education from preschool to university is free of charge for anybody living in Finland. This makes higher education affordable and accessible for all.


In Finland, schools and teachers are trusted so there is no external inspection of schools or standardized tests. Teaching is one of the top career choices in Finland.

World Religion Map

World Religion Map | Banco de Aulas |
The incredibly detailed map of the world's religions shows what the biggest religion is by census area in each country, along with its level of support.

Madison Roth's curator insight, April 7, 12:47 PM
This map relates to my human geography class because it shows the distribution of religion, and that is something my class is learning about. I think the distribution of religion is interesting to view because of the enormous level of diversity. Comparing the spread from origins of different religions to one another, the size along with the support it receives are even more actions one would practice.
Chris Rouse's curator insight, April 11, 4:34 PM
This article is about the different religions around the world and what areas have the largest amount of supporters for a certain religion. This connects to our lessons because we learned about the different religions and where they are located.
Aaron Evans's curator insight, April 25, 9:27 PM
There are many religions throughout the world. And it is interesting to see where the religions are distributed throughout regions. Christian is the biggest religion in the world, I was surprised to see the tiny bits of christian in Asia. It is an overall very detailed map.

Informe Educación en el mundo UNESCO 2012

■ Objetivo 1: Las mejoras en el ámbito de la atención y educación de la primera infancia han
sido demasiado lentas. En 2008, aproximadamente el 28% aproximadamente de los niños
de menos de cinco años padecían de retraso en el crecimiento, y menos de la mitad de los
niños del mundo recibían una enseñanza preescolar.
■ Objetivo 2: Los progresos encaminados a hacer realidad la enseñanza primaria universal
están perdiendo impulso. En 2010 seguía habiendo 61 millones de niños sin escolarizar en
el mundo. De 100 niños no escolarizados, se estima que 47 no lo estarán nunca.
■ Objetivo 3: Muchos jóvenes no disponen de competencias básicas. En 123 países de bajos
ingresos o ingresos medianos bajos, unos 200 millones de jóvenes que tienen entre 15 y 24
años ni siquiera han logrado terminar sus estudios primarios, lo que representa un joven de
cada cinco.
■ Objetivo 4: La alfabetización de los adultos sigue siendo un objetivo difícil de alcanzar.
El número de adultos analfabetos ha experimentado una disminución de solo un 12%
entre 1990 y 2010. En 2010, unos 775 millones de adultos eran analfabetos, siendo las dos
terceras partes mujeres.
■ Objetivo 5: Las disparidades entre varones y niñas cobran formas muy diversas. En 2010,
había todavía diecisiete países con menos de nueve niñas por diez varones en la enseñanza
primaria. En más de la mitad de los 96 países que no han logrado la paridad entre los sexos
en la enseñanza secundaria, los varones están en situación de inferioridad.
■ Objetivo 6: La desigualdad en materia de resultados del aprendizaje sigue siendo muy
marcada a escala mundial. Asciende a nada menos que 250 millones el número de niños
que podrían llegar al cuarto grado sin ser capaces de leer o de escribir.
