Lyndon B. Johnson's 'Great Society' Speech

15 pages in length. Perhaps no other speech in political history has hit upon as many delicate subjects as Lyndon B. Johnson's 'Great Society.' Considered the one dissertation to cure all the country's ills at once, the President sought to implement broad and widely sweeping changes with regard to education, environmental degradation, immigration and health care. Indeed, it can readily be argued that these concerns were at the forefront of the nation's mind; however, the manner by which Johnson went about originating these drastic modifications in social and political policy were delivered quite abruptly and without a great deal of follow-through. Some of the myriad acts put into place by this speech include the Civil Rights Act, food stamp legislation, the Economic Opportunity Act, programs for mass transportation, Medicare and Medicaid, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Higher Education Act, and the Public Works and Economic Development Act. Historians who have studied the President's speech contend that while it was comprised of eloquence and forthrightness, it proved to be but a Band-Aid upon the problems it had sought to resolve. The writer evaluates Johnson's speech as it relates to rhetoric, content, consistency, flow, as well as the impact it has had upon the nation some thirty years later. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Adult Learning Styles, Temperaments And Theories In "Educating Rita"

3 pages in length. Educating Rita is about two types of education: cognitive and experiential. Academic education is what drives a civilized society and the fundamental component of success, be that financial, interpersonal or self-worth. Practical education is that which is acquired as one moves through the different phases of life and learns from the inside out. For Rita, education was all of this rolled together; while she already possessed experiential knowledge, she gravely lacked proper intellectual prowess she knew would serve to fill in the missing pieces of her life. Rita was both overzealous and under-prepared as a student when pitted against the advanced academic career of her tutor, Dr. Bryant. Watching their educational dance proceed with an undeniable awkwardness, the audience comes to appreciate the intensity of Rita's quest for self-improvement just as much as her somewhat jaded professor, who ultimately comes around to champion her aspirations with the help of a number of learning theories. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Is Formal Education Too Early

An 11 page paper. There is a significant amount of pressure to begin children in formal education programs younger and younger. For this essay, a 'formal education program' is defined as any systematic early childhood education program where children receive any type of rating on cognitive performance, even reciting their numbers or the alphabet. It seems to make sense to think that sending children to formal programs at early ages would be detrimental to them. The literature belies this supposition, however, in fact, there is an ever-increasing amount of literature that demonstrates the short- and long-term benefits of very early education. This essay discusses the issues and presents the literature. The writer does comment on the practice of using standardized tests with four-year-olds. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

How Is An Educated Person Defined?

5 pages in length. The word "education" has many definitions; not only does it represent academic knowledge, but it also reflects an inner understanding about the world in which one lives. People speak of "street smarts," a concept that many believe precludes the ability for one to possess an education, however, being street wise is often a much more comprehensive form of education than one obtain through academic study. Indeed, these two diverse types of education are defined in two completely different ways, clearly illustrating how there is often more to linguistic expression than meets the eye. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
