Constitutional Provisions

...CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS Collaborative Learning Community: Constitutional Provisions Collaborative Learning Community: Constitutional Provisions The Arizona constitution defines the laws of the state as the effects it has on counties, insuring that all counties follow the same basic laws. While many of the funds for Arizona’s educational system come from the sale of public lands, in the early 1900’s, article ten specifies the sources of revenue and maintenance of state educational institutions. There is a possibility the community could gain the approval of the Governor to become a municipal corporation that is self-governing. The local governments are better able to handle the many differences (McClory T., 2010, p. 165). Counties The Arizona constitution guarantees that no one county would have more power than another; by keeping the officer’s terms, elections, and roles the same. The people of Arizona are ensured that they will continue to be directly involved with their government. If a decision is made to allow the counties with over 500,000 citizens, this situation could propose chapters to better serve their citizens. The Arizona constitution affects the counties of the state in various aspects which are outlined in article twelve of the document. Article twelve has nine sections that outline the laws which govern the counties of the state. Section one and two of the document identifies the organization of the counties;......

Vision of Teaching in 2015

...(a Research Paper for) VISION OF TEACHING IN 2015 Submitted to: COLLEGE OF EDUCATION By: General Introduction Filipinos have deep regard to for education. Education occupies a central place in Philippine political, economic social and cultural life. It has always been strongly viewed as a pillar of national development and a primary avenue for social and economic mobility. A clear evidence of the value placed on education is the proportion of the national government budget going to the sector. The Department of Education (DepEd), the country’s biggest bureaucracy 1 , is given the highest budget allocation among government agencies each year as required by the 1987 Philippine Constitution. The 1987 Constitution likewise guarantees the right to education of every Filipino. It provided that, “The State shall protect and promote the right of all citizens to quality education at all levels and shall take appropriate steps to make education accessible to all.” The right of every Filipino to quality basic education is further emphasized in Republic Act 9155 or the Governance of Basic Education Act of 2001. Along with Republic Act 6655 or the Free Secondary Education Act, these laws reaffirm the policy of the State to protect and promote the rights of all Filipinos by providing children free and compulsory education in the elementary and high school level. This pertains to six years of free tuition fees for......

PERSPECTIVES ON THE UK’S CONSTITUTION(S) DAVID FELDMAN* An inaugural lecture is the occasion when the University of Cambridge can look its gift horse in the mouth, weighing the new professor in the balance against his or her distinguished predecessors. The Rouse Ball Professorship of English Law has been held in the past by a long series of distinguished scholars, from Sir Percy Winfield to my immediate predecessor, Sir Jack Beatson whom we are delighted to welcome back today. Their work has influenced generations of lawyers. They certainly influenced me. Before I encountered Criminal Law: The General Part,1 a great little volume by Professor Glanville Williams, Learning the Law, was my ‘Guide, Philosopher and Friend’ (as it still says on the cover of the latest edition, now edited by my colleague Professor Tony Smith)2 as I approached the study of law. Another Rouse Ball Professor, the late Sir William Wade, had a formative effect on my understanding of land law and administrative law both through his famous books, Megarry and Wade on the Law of Real Property (now edited by a former Fellow of Downing College, Dr. Charles Harpum)3 and Administrative Law (now in the hands of my colleague Dr. Christopher Forsyth),4 not to mention the lectures that I attended as an undergraduate in (softly be it said) the University of Oxford.

A New Vision for Public Administration

...Review of “A New Vision for Public Administration” Charles T. Goodsell Public Administration Review, 66.4, July/August 2006: 623:635 Theme The theme of the article by Goodsell is illustrating “how public administration in the United States can be seen on its own terms, and not those of others” (p. 634). This article argue that the professors and practitioners of the field have inadvertently allowed it to be observed and interpreted from standpoints imposed by others who are external to its institutions and subject matter (p. 623). These include elected officials and politicians and a variety of critics supporting programs for improvement. The representations of the field expected by these outside viewers have been indiscreetly acknowledged within public administration, leaving the field disposed for influence as a tool for purposes other than its own. This situation has made it difficult for the field's leaders to formulate a separate intellectual vision for public administration that is consonant with their appropriate goals and concerns (p.623). Topic The topic under consideration is to contend that it is time for the field to advance, in the sense that it must express, at least to itself, a vision that apprehends its understanding of public administration's contented involvement to a democratic society. The article also present that the vision is no more “true” in an objective sense than the visions of others. The subject of investigation are the......

Douglas North New Framework

...Jennifer Edwards Economic History of Europe September 14, 2010 Prof. Alpert Mr. Douglas North proposes his new framework which is the new institutional economics which it entails the institution property rights, transaction cost, economic organization in history and the economic development of countries. In the chapters 4, 5 and 6 Mr. North explains about his framework and he breaks them down in details. Mr. North uses many examples to describe different sections of his framework starting with “Analyzing Economic Organization in History,’ Mr. North starts off by saying that “One must be able to measure the quantity of a good in order for it to be exclusive property and to have value in exchange. Where most measurements cost is very high, the good will be a common property resource. The technology of measurement and the history of weights and measures is a crucial par of economic history since as measurement costs were reduced the cost of transacting was reduced.” (North, 1981) When you look at things like economic growth and how it can be either negative or positive. When I say that economic growth is either negative or positive I mean it could be shrinking our increasing. If the economic growth is negative or shrinking I would say that we are in an economic depression and recession. In some cases when economic growth increases the some available labor increases as well. If you look at economic growth and quality of life it improves up to a certain......

PRESENTED BY: IWEBAFA GIFT ODIBO MAY 2014 I. Introduction Chapter two of the Nigerian Constitution of 1999 (as Amended) and Chapter Six of the Ghanian Constitution of 1992, both made provisions for the Fundamental Objectives and Directive Principles of State Policy, which are intended to guide all citizens, Parliament, the President, the Judiciary, the Council of State, the Cabinet, political parties, and other bodies and persons in applying or interpreting the Constitution or any other laws.[1] The directive principles cover political objectives, economic objectives, social objectives, educational objectives, cultural objectives, international relations, and duties of citizens. The main issue that relates to the directive principles is their constitutional status; whether they are justiciable or not justiciable and this is applicable to both Ghana and Nigeria. A policy is a guide to the achievement of an objective. By constitutional policy, we mean the principles and objectives set out in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria of 1999 (CFRN 1999) which act as a guide to achieving governmental objectives. A government without a guide is like an......

Vision 2030 Brochure

...Kenya Vision 2030 REPUBLIC OF KENYA July - August, 2007 This publication is a summary of Kenya’s new long-term national planning strategy, officially known as Kenya Vision 2030. The publication briefly states the main goals of the Economic, Social and Political pillars that underpin the Vision 2030. It also provides a run-down of major, (or flagship) projects to be embarked upon in the Medium Term period of the Vision, i.e from 2008-2012. The final version of Vision 2030 will be completed after this and other consultations. Kenya Vision 2030 THE CONTEXT OF KENYA VISION 2030 Kenya Vision 2030 is the new country’s development blueprint covering the period 2008 to 2030. It aims at making Kenya a newly industrializing, “middle income country providing high quality life for all its citizens by the year 2030”. The Vision has been developed through an all-inclusive stakeholder consultative process, involving Kenyans from all parts of the country. The vision is based on three “pillars” namely; the economic pillar, the social pillar and the political pillar. This vision’s programme plan comes after the successful implementation of the Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation (ERS) which has seen the country’s economy back on the path to rapid growth since 2002, when GDP grew at 0.6% rising to 6.1% in 2006. The relationships between the pillars can be seen in Exhibit One below. The economic pillar aims at providing prosperity...
