Click on any of the term papers to read a brief synopsis of the research paper. The essay synopsis includes the number of pages and sources cited in the paper.

  • Traditional Schooling versus Home Schooling

    An 11 page paper discussing arguments both for and against home schooling, concluding with an arrangement by which home-schoolers could continue their means of education while professional educators could be assured that the students are receiving adequate academic training. The situation by which students are required to log a specific number of school days annually and then are further required to pass achievement tests appropriate for their grade level should be oversight enough. Working in partnership with local school districts to make use of tax-supported facilities and programs allows the home-schooled to take advantage of public amenities that their parents support through their taxes, and also provides a means by which local school officials can quietly monitor academic progress. Though charges of isolation and lack of social skill development likely will never disappear, increased contact between the home-schooled and the more traditionally-schooled should quiet those fears, as well. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • History and Trade School Problems

    8 pages. This is a literature review regarding the issue of trade schools vs. schools of higher education. For the most part there is an ongoing argument that trade schools are not as socially responsible nor as distinguished as schools of higher education. This paper shows why that statement is in most cases a false one; trade schools can be and in many cases are advantageous over schools of higher education. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
