Two specific groups that I identify with as part of my decision to attend Columbia Southern University is based on my family and work. As an individual my choice to attend is based on my own desire to achieve a higher education in order to obtain a job that is satisfactory to the life and goals I have mapped out for myself. By having a job for which I have specifically attended school for, it will allow me to get and sustain a career conducive to my own happiness and prosperity. While my own individual choice to attend school is great, I have a family that encouraged me greatly in this decision. Both my mother and father, between the two, have a Master’s degree in criminal justice, and a Bachelor's degree in paramedic studies. Naturally
The NCAA allows Division II baseball programs to schedule a maximum of 50 games in a season, with a start date of February 1st. Erskine College is in Conference Carolinas which has 10 schools that field baseball teams. This means each school has nine weekends scheduled by the conference for a total of 27 games that start the last weekend of February. Each school is then responsible for scheduling the remaining 23 non-conference games however the coach sees fit. The most important part of a non-conference schedule is booking the open weekends prior to starting conference play. This will allow the team to get their conference starting pitchers on a schedule that will have them ready for the first conference weekend. The hard part in filling these weekends is that the Peach Belt and South Atlantic conferences start their conference schedule the second weekend
I entered Clara Barton High School of Health Professions in September 2008. This school was widely popular because of its prestigious Licensed Practical Nursing program. The four years of high school was very challenging. When I graduated in June of 2012, I was more than relieved. I was an LPN at the age of 17. Shortly after, a whirlwind of mishaps occurred.
On September 8, 2015, I was assigned this case to follow up. This case involved Mr. Oswaldo Javier Flores a fifteen year old Francis Hammond Middle School student.

There are many possibilities as to why Robeson High School could be facing these low performing ratings. One possibility that many have looked into is the teachers that are educating at these schools. The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) school district educated about 381,349 students in the 2016-2017 school district, according to CPS’s website. However, they employ only about 36,254 staff, with only 20,973 teachers employed. This is about 19 students per teacher. Looking closer into Robeson High School, the total enrollment was 355 students, and the total full time teachers was 34. With Robeson High having about 10 students with every teacher, it seems that the academics and test scores should be much better than they are.
In the fall of 1970, three long-haired men sought to register to attend Tyler Junior College in the fall semester. When they arrived to register, they were snubbed by a school official after receiving a copy of the dress code, due to the length of their hair. They were informed that they would be allowed to attend the college upon cutting their hair to the required length. After discussing the injustice of this act, these three men filed a suit against the dress code of Tyler Junior College. The plaintiffs claimed the portion of the dress code regarding hair length was a violation of their constitutional rights, specifically the rights afforded to them under the fourteenth amendment.

If my school received a gift of $5,000 dollars I think the best way for the school to spend the money is to apply that to our Career Technical Education classes. It would give out school a better opportunity and developing student for the work force right out of highschool. Suppling those classes with certains supplies to help improve their curriculum, would be a great investment for the teachers and the students to make their job and learning environment easier. Within Hunter Huss High School most of the funding go to sports or renovations. With supplying supplies and learning materials it will help enhance the learning environment.
When vision, mission, or values contradict strategy negative consequences could include the loss of reputation, the loss of consumers, the loss of profits, and the loss of the business itself.

The lack of success at Omega, Inc. rested in the hands of an incompetent sales staff who were not informed of the company’s mission statement and goals. The staff received limited training on the jobs they were to perform. Omega was faced with the challenge of getting the employees to achieve their sales quotas. According to (Aguinis, 2007), “There are two important prerequisites required before a performance management system is implemented: knowledge of the organization’s mission and strategic goals and knowledge of the job in question.” The benefit of superior knowledge of the organization combined with clear and agreed upon mission and strategic goals of their unit would afford employees the opportunity to make contributions that will have a positive impact on the organization as a whole. In addition, one must possess the knowledge of the job in question to execute the tasks necessary to be done and how they should be done. This knowledge is obtained through a job analysis. Omega failed to implement strategic planning throughout all the franchises. According to Aguinis (2007), “Strategic planning allows an organization to clearly define its purpose or reason for existing, where it wants to be in the future, the goals it wants to achieve and the strategies it will use to realize these goals.
