Ohio bill would offer community college tuition guarantee - Wooster Daily Record | Senior Seminar(Materials Science, Boeing) | Scoop.it
Ohio bill would offer community college tuition guarantee
Wooster Daily Record
COLUMBUS -- Students attending community colleges could have their tuition frozen while earning their degrees, under legislation being considered in the Ohio House.
Nicholas Kopp's insight:

As most student who will be going to college, the idea of tuition and student debt has crossed their minds at least one time or another. This video explains the two main reasons why college debt is rising. Higher demand, in that more students than ever are going to college. And, subsidies, or government assistance. The second one is valid in that the more assistance for students to go to college, the more students will go, which makes demand increase, and thus tuition.

Elementary Education Professional Program | Western Washington University

Elementary Education Professional Program | Western Washington University | Senior Seminar(Materials Science, Boeing) | Scoop.it

My Thoughts:

Western Washington University has a good education program. It was originally a vocational teacher college. It has a very strong teacher certification program and I will be certified in both elementary school as well as special education. Western Washington University seems like the best college for me. Not only because of the strong teacher education program, but also because of the strong technology program. If I decide to change my major I see myself changing to a technological degree, and Western has a strong technology program. This will help me learn the process of which a student at Western needs to follow in order to become a certified teacher.

Nicholas Kopp's insight:

This opinion on Western Washington University seems to me like an enhancementof my desicion to go their because Western does seem like nice school. If I went to Western Washington University I would study a degree in the sciences, prefereably Chemsitry or pre-engineering.

Colin Ferguson's curator insight, April 2, 2014 5:33 PM

WWU is the school I will be attending to pursue a career in elementary education and this is exactly how I will be going about it. I liked seeing this in particular because it is talking about how WWU is one of the best teaching schools out there and the elementary education degree is a very comprehensive degree offered there.

Nicholas Kopp's insight:

In this video I learned about the 4 forces that act upon an airplane. Lift, thrust, gravity, and drag are these 4 forces. Lift and thrust must be greater than drag and gravity forces in order for an airplane to fly. You also must meet the requirement of being under the max gross weight an airplane will allow.
