Do Natural Abilities Determine Your Success at Learning?

Gloucestercitynews.net (Nov. 14, 2019)--It seems that everybody knows the saying that states: “A sound mind in a sound body”. As a matter of fact, it is rightly so. People who opt for a healthy lifestyle can be automatically called wise. Nonetheless, there is also that cohort of people whom somebody might eventually consider to be “not wise” or even “dumb” just because they were born this way. This statement could have not stood farther from the truth as every single individual is wise, intelligent, and creative. The problem is that all the people are judged within the system of unified standards. As Albert Einstein used to say: “Judging a fish by its ability to climb trees is stupid”. Therefore, do not believe when somebody says... Read more →

Congressman Norcross on College Affordability Act

Last week, I joined with my colleagues on the Education and Labor Committee in introducing the College Affordability Act - a bold, comprehensive plan to lower the cost of college and give student borrowers the relief they desperately need. As the only New Jersey member on the Education and Labor Committee, I am dedicated to fighting for teachers and students, and this bill just does that. Researchers have estimated that for every dollar that states spend on higher education, states receive up to $4.50 back, so why wouldn't we want to continue to invest in higher education? What does the College Affordability Act do? Lowers the Cost of College Makes college affordable for more students by increasing the value of Pell Grants. Eases the burden... Read more →
