In the United States, a child needs there education and they’re required to go to school by law. Getting a education for a girl in the middle east is very rare, it all depends on the family. BBC News published a article Muslim Women Struggle for an education, and they asked parents why they did not allow their girls to go to school and they said “because it’s wrong, it’s irreligious, it’s improper- they should stay at home to prepare for their real life, their married life”. The girls have no option and have to obey their parents. A lack of education means that these girls are not going to have the knowledge in order to read, write, and solve mathematic problems . Women in the Middle East are not considered equal with males because the society they live in doesn't accept the idea of them having equal opportunity as male
Although gender and education inequality may be both gradually increasing while shifting up and down throughout the years, the adult literacy rate in Thailand has only been increasing since 2000. In 2015, only about four percent of Thailand’s citizens aged fifteen and over were illiterate. This ends up positively contributing to a wide variety of social improvements, such as lower infant mortality rates and higher education levels for future generations. This is because a parent who went to school and learned to reads is more likely to do the same with their child, regardless of gender. The same goes for length of education as well—the more education they received, the more education they will likely expect their child to experience.
Another common Islamic artwork was calligraphy, which is illustrated in Figure II. It was described as the most important of all elements in Islamic art. This art was considered dignified, due to its association with the Muslims Holy Book Koran, temple and palace inscriptions, and its use in
In Towards a Phenomenology of Dwelling, Lisa Guenther puts forth thought on dwelling, and doing so responsibly. She brings up the idea of a person’s daimon, which I like to think of as a person’s conscious. It tells you the possible things that you can do, both good and bad, but ultimately, only you can decide what you will do. The visual of an angel and the devil sitting upon either shoulder comes to my mind. Others are more aware of your daimon than you are, and this is because there are parts of yourself that you do not see. Whether this be physical, like your habits, tendencies, and body language or not visible like your desires, most of the time, others are more aware of this than you are. Desires influence every decision that you make,
In Saudi Arabia, the schools have low education to learn English, and they do not have international students. Also, there are few schools teaching English because it is not very common in most of the cities. Conversely, in United States, there are lots of higher education schools to learn and study English, and there are lots of international students because most of the students have scholarship to study in United States. And also, there are lots of schools and colleges to study English in modern ways like, Solex College, and Loyola University of
What is home? If one looks in a dictionary the answer would come out to be, “The place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.” However, for anyone who has had an actual home, they would know that such a term goes much beyond its concrete description. It is an impassioned aspect filled with values and foundation of nurturing. A home is not just an abode built to live in; in fact, that is just a definition of a house. Home is a place where one not only feels comfortable, but a place they look forward to opportunely live in every day. A home is built not by bricks or wood, but with the bond of family. A home is a place that reminds a person of countless memories and values when he walks through a
In Africa’s largest country, Sudan, is where the Azande people lived. In southwestern Sudan, north of Zaire, and to the east of the Central African Republic to be exact. The Azande lived in houses near the river bank where there was a lot of greenery and shade for their homes. They lived there for some time before they were forced to move.They had to move away from the river banks and near roads, because of a sickness spread by a bug that lived in the shrubbery there. In their new location, a traditional home was built of mud and grass framed on wooden poles, and the roof that covered their home was made out of grass as well. Each individual household also included a storehouse for threshed grain or millet. These houses were made around courtyards, which was a common place for gatherings.The way each plaza was made, organized, was basically personalized by its owner. Meaning that each plaza reflected the personality of its owner. As I stated previously, by looking at one’s courtyard, someone could tell if the owner of the courtyard was well organized, hardworking, and responsible. The maintenance of these courtyards was very important to them. All the adult women each had their own storehouse to store grains and millet. A household with many people living in it, would have many storehouses, granaries, and homes around its courtyard. In a traditional family unit( one man and one woman), the standard plaza space was decent sized, it wasn’t too
Home has an elastic definition that changes depending on the person. Home, to me, can be anywhere in the world as long as you are with the people you care about most. As toddlers may seek comfort with a stuffed animal or blanket, I find the comfort of home through my GoPro. A GoPro is a type of camera that is small, durable, and has a plethora of attachments. When the first version was released, I wanted one to capture the action footage of my life. Finally, I saved enough money to purchase one of my own. I bought the GoPro because I love spending time with my family and friends while taking part in thrilling and exciting experiences together. Spending moments, like those, with the people you love is what home is about. After receiving the GoPro, I was filled with excitement to be able to start capturing my adventures. Ultimately, wherever I am, I am likely to be found with the GoPro, for it provides me with comfort knowing I have the ability to capture the irreplaceable and priceless memories of the people I love.
Education remains to be the priority of all nations around the globe. Most countries devote vast resources to guarantee equal education opportunities to all their students. Most education systems are developed to meet the economic and social demands of the country, both locally and globally. As the world’s 8th highest education spender, Saudi Arabia initiates an overhaul on the education system. It is the largest country in the Middle East. The Saudi Arabian education has gone through an astounding transformation. Initially, education was only available to few people who were children of the wealthy families. However, the transformation of the Saudi Education is now offering education to all children regardless of their social status.
Over the past decades, Kuwait, like most Islamic countries have practiced strict measures in terms of their governance system with lots of times the religious aspect influencing greatly the kind of government in place and the type of governance that is used within Kuwait. This resulted in a closed, less democratic, religious, stereotypical and generally patriarchal society. This has however undergone a lot of change particularly with the embracing of the Western culture that is more open, diverse and liberal in nature.
We have the same educational system in all of the schools of Saudi Arabia. All schools in my country have the same curriculums and the same rules. We have three essential stages of education:
Also, people identify nursing home as a place of isolation, amidst being surrounded by other people. More often, people who acquire chronic diseases in their late years are unable to take care of themselves, thus requiring assistance from a skilled facility. Because of this experience, the elderly people will eventually develop a feeling of helplessness, because they lose their capability to take care of themselves. Most often, the activities they have grown to do by themselves are now being done for them by a stranger. These activities are done according to a routine to be able to accommodate all the other residents needs in the facility and also to meet the facility’s policies. Living in an environment that is under a constant supervision can make a person lose their feeling of autonomy, a significant factor to one’s self-fulfillment, especially in the old age.
The Kuwaiti culture is dominant in Kuwait where the people originate. They were primary drawn to the Kuwait Bay region because of the resources from the sea, and majority of the population still lives within a short distance of the first coastal colonies. Kuwait exists in the Middle East which borders the Persian Gulf, sandwiched between Saudi Arabia and Iraq (T. 2011). The landscape of Kuwait varies slightly, between flat and somewhat rolling desert plains. Kuwait’s flat deserts cover ancient rock formations that contain about a
Arabic Calligraphy is based upon the development of the Arabic alphabet and is intimately tied to the history of Islam and the writings of the Qur’an. The word calligraphy, is defined as ‘beautiful writing” and is considered to be one of the most noble artistic expressions in the Islamic world. Arabic Calligraphy has become an integral part of Islamic culture mainly because Islam by nature is aniconic, which discourages the artistic representation of animals and human beings. As a result of this, the art of Islamic culture gravitated towards the art of calligraphy.
Lucy, Ichiro and Esperanza stress the importance of having a place – house - they belong in and wonder where home is for them, hoping the discovery of home will lead to self-realization. Lucy says: “…my mother had said to me many times: for my whole life I should make sure the roof over my head was my own; such a thing was important, especially if you were a woman.” (Kincaid, 144). The fact that she ended up renting an apartment with Peggy remarks that she has started the process of becoming independent, although the apartment is only hers as long as she can afford to pay the rent. Although the apartment is only temporarily hers, it is the money she earned that let her acquire the authority to live in it. Similarly, Esperanza states: “Not
