Ben Wood Post on Social Media


Cyber-bullying is real. But it is not just a child issue. Cyber-bullying is also a social issue. That is, it is not just a school issue. Are you a bully?

Where is Nature?

Where is nature? For most people, nature is in the woods; nature is located away from urban dwellings. I disagree. Nature is everywhere.

Educational Law

There is no panacea in education. But such issues can be very complicated. There is no right or wrong answer to school problems.

    What is racism?
    A Complex Issue There is no doubt about it; racism is a complex psycho-social issue. It is a common affair in modern society. The problem is the literature is ambiguous about the nature of this issue. In other words, views often diverge about the characteristics of racism. While there is no consensus about the subject, […]

    Vietnam Was A Treacherous War
    A Policy Change The Vietnam War had been festering for several decades before it abruptly ended. A few months prior the official withdrawal, American officials appeared determined in their desire to stop the rise of communism in Indochina. But they evacuated from Vietnam before winning the war. Why did this happen? Few people have an […]

    An Indisputable Reality in Education
    Public Schools as Business Enterprises There is an indisputable reality in education. A school could not exist as a stand-alone entity. A school often requires an agglomeration of individuals and entities, many of whom must work toward a single goal. In general, a school is a public entity. But a school could not function on […]

    Growing Trends in Education
    Assessing The Teaching Profession In recent years, several trends in education are beginning to take hold. A growing trend affects the teaching profession in particular. A popular understanding is that a person could only teach when he or she holds certain skills. Without such skills, teaching is not possible, at least not at a professional […]

    Pennsylvania Schools Are Falling Behind
    Assessing the PIL Standards The last few years alone, many Pennsylvania schools have fallen behind. While the debate is still growing about the cause [or the possible causes] for the state’s menial performance scorecard, the Commonwealth is betting on school leaders to make a difference in the classrooms. But the reliance on school professionals is […]

    A Utopian Approach to Education What I will propose in the next few posts could be considered a utopian approach to education. I will argue that we need to change our perspective about the world. But we could only do so by altering our perspective about education. The question I always ask in many of […]

    The Term Teaching
    Many ways to Teach One could examine the term teaching from several angles. For instance, one might say that teaching is the art of conveying information to others. Over the years, this activity has changed considerably. It is now a formalized process. Teaching is now a profession. Generally, being a teacher is a formal professional […]

Throughout their careers, these thinkers have debated the mechanism through which one person could transfer information to another. In this instance, I am […]

    A Popular Misapprehension About Teaching There is a popular misapprehension in education. It is concerning the teaching profession. The presumption is that a teacher can be either good or bad. Here, let us dissect that understanding in depth. The common belief is that every teacher must be made from scratch. By that logic, we are […]

    A School as an Organizational Structure
    Schools as Organizations In general, a school is a public entity. We could also categorize it as an organization. But an inherent characteristic of an organization is that such a setting is a business. The problem is that there is a certain mechanic in the functioning of a school, which makes it almost impossible to […]

    Examining the Term Crime
    What is Crime? Most people think they know what crime is. But do they really master the concept in its most fundamental sense? Not necessarily, I would say. When you hear the word crime, the picture of someone being assaulted by a thug [or by a ruthless criminal] usually comes to mind. You might also […]

    Inconsistent Nature of School Law
    The Inconsistent Nature of School Law The American educational system is not uniform. School districts are different. Sometimes it is because of their demography and characteristics. Other times, it is because of their organizational structures. School issues are often very distinct. Many a time, it is because of the locus of the incident (on or […]

    The Nature of School Law
    Assessing the Characteristics of School Law What is the nature of school Law? Presently, there is no way to answer this question without referring to other fields of law.

    Disjointed Judicial Opinions Educational law is the result of a series of disjointed judicial opinions. This reality tends to undermine the nature of this field of law. It lacks legal opacity; it lacks a clear legal structure. Unlike tort law or contract law, educational law seems devoid of a clear theoretical tenet. For instance, this […]
