Some things to ponder before you even begin writing this essay:
Do you think that the educational system as it is presently functioning in the United States serves students well? Or do you think that it might be more responsive to their needs, if is revamped to incorporate a mix of educational modalities that predominated in colonial America?
Questions you should respond to are written in italics.
Many young people in Colonial America took part in apprenticeships; they learned a trade as they worked alongside experienced crafts persons. (Note: Nobody is indicting that these apprentices were necessarily treated well. Some might have been abused on many levels.)
Might updated apprenticeships be more responsive to the needs of students than are the educational programs now operational in America’s cities? Might they send students on their way to a career while they are still in high school? Might apprenticeship programs sponsored by unions grant participants a chance to earn while they learn?
Advocates for this educational modality maintain that it has multiple advantages. It provides students with a curriculum that is tailored to their particular needs and also frees them up to spend time on projects or work opportunities that might benefit them more than would sitting in a classroom. And it, likewise, allows students to avoid the bullying and social pressures than can make their school days unpleasant. Do you think that it can live up to the promises proponents make for it?

Week 3 Discussion
1. Caring for older adults has become more intensive, complex, and long lasting than in the past. There are many barriers to caregivers receiving adequate preparation for their role. Evidence suggests that many caregivers experience negative psychological effects. Some caregivers are at higher risk than others, especially those who spend long hours caring for older adults with advanced dementia. Caregivers should have access to high-quality, evidence-based interventions designed to mitigate or prevent adverse health effects (Schulz, 2016). How does the caregiver role affect family dynamics? What support services are available to support this role?

2. Women have shorter working lives because they tend to leave the workforce earlier than men. Based on data from the OECD, the average age for women to leave the labor-market in OECD countries is 62.3, which is about one to two years earlier than men. What are your thoughts on this?
