Leadership and gender

June 01st 2018
A bias exists in leadership roles as assumed by men and women in political and corporate scopes. Men dominate leadership roles, a phenomenon that suggests superiority of men over women. A study on leadership positions in the United States shows that more that men occupy 80 percent of corporate leadership positions and the percentage is higher in Europe. The society’s perception of leadership roles by gender and applied approaches to achieving gender balance in leadership are the main reasons why med dominate leadership positions. The gender imbalance has been perceived as a diversity problem, considering women as a marginalized population. The perception is however, unrealistic because women forms a significant percentage of the labor force and are key decision makers on commodity purchases. Their role in decision-making means their capacity that should be reflected in leadership roles, but this is not the case. In an attempt to bridge the leadership imbalance, by gender, efforts have been made to mould women into masculine features. This has, however not been successful because when women develop such characteristics, their leadership receives criticism instead of being appreciated (McCullough 1). Identifying the problem with the society’s perception and the weak approach that has been applied is consistent with existing literature that women are as competent leaders as are men. Abu-Tineh (1) reported insignificant leadership effectives between men and women in...

Who is Narrating The Picture of Dorian Gray

June 01st 2018
In the novel ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde, the narrator has a significant role since the narrator serves as the primary character between different characters in the novel (Molino 1). The narrator of this book is believed to be Cedric Hardwicke. Even though, the story is narrated from Dorians perspective; the narrator was in a position of thinking about the other characters in the book. Every characters’ thoughts and perspective could be portrayed very clearly. As what is customarily called an omniscient or restricted omniscient narrator, then goes about as the essential middle person between the characters, the activity, and the novel’s setting and the peruser of the novel, what Gérard Genette calls “centralization.” However, the narrator is regularly more than only a camera lens through which the encompassing occasions are recorded on occasion. Truth be told, the narrator appears to have the ability to enter a character’s heart and brain, bearing in mind the end goal to see and break down the inspiration, expectation, and importance of that character’s words, contemplations, and deeds. On account of the narrator’s viewpoint and clear powers of observation, the peruser is frequently disposed to listen with trusting force to the narrator’s expressions, to give his or her words, points of view, and investigation confidence. The narrator, then, is liberated from the restrictions of awareness and ready to weave the...

Curriculum Development

June 01st 2018
Most teaching evaluation systems considered unique and being developed in many state rely heavily on a theory of action. This ideology that implies education evaluation is a powerful lever for developing teaching performance and eventually student outcomes. However, this has failed to achieve the stated objective. Accountability, as promoted these days under the No Child Left Behind for instance in Texas and various state education systems, purports to be concern about improvement (Hattie, 2012). Sadly, such interventions have failed to acknowledge that fact that improvement needs more than just measurement. In this regard, debate will continues over the basis by which various public schools in US are deemed to perform satisfactorily under the federal or state accountability system. The question thus at the center of the argument is which schooling education aspects should inform these determinations. Likewise, combined strategies that should be employed to enhance sustainable educational transformation. To actual say the system is working in light of the current events in many states, the policies needs evident positive results. Likewise, as stated previous scope, the outcome requires measured by employing a summative assessment. In addition, a program can only be said to be effective when it work for any student and educator (Wiles & Bondi, 2015). Such are contrary to the critics leveled against newly opened charter schools in many states. Such schools fail to have to...
