Education and education-related policies

Postby Guidrion » Sun Jul 13, 2014 2:13 pm

After reading some ideas from Gikgik about education (decay of democracy on the steam workshop), I started thinking about the concept of the education simulation and its implication for modding policies. It is also quit important to have a good understanding of what it means as it is one of the most important data in Democracy 3 (who doesn't try to maximize it?).
What does the simulation node of Education stands for? Does it represent the amount of skills the citizen have or does it go beyond skills?

If it is about skills, then:
Only policies providing usable knowledge or skills should affect education: sports, langage, school funding.
All other types of policies that takes school time without teaching skills should actually diminish the education value and affect other values. Sex education is socially useful and affects behaviour but doesn't teach any form of skills. School prayers and singing the national anthem takes time (not much) that could be used for other things. Compulsory sports classes improves health by improving physical fitness but doesn't improve education in itself.
This could be counterbalanced by an uncancellable policy defining school time. More school time costs more but means teachers have more time to teach.
However, this means that maxing out the education value should only affect technology, productivity and other purely economical datas and policies regarding education should affect other datas.

If education is about more than skills, then it means having a certain idea of what an educated mind should be. Then and only then can we start to design which policies affects positively or negatively education. If we follow certain atheist ideas, all policies allowing religion to get into schools should negatively affect education. If we follow certain post-modern ideas, then all policies introducing national elements should negatively affect education. And the list goes on.
In the spirit of simulation, I don't think this is the way to go.
Also, the evolution of the quality of education in a larger sense takes time to make society evolve. The rapidity of change in Democracy 3 is therefore problematic.

What do you think, people?

Things like sex education don't teach any skills. It seems to cause there to be a change in population and that can affect education indirectly. If there are too few pupils then teachers will start to be unemployed so you can adjust the sex education policy for instance to try to mitigate that kind of bad situation. But there are other, better, polices that you can use to manage population growth and prevent teachers from being unemployed. That being said, I think that the education level just represents how skilled and literate your population is and that can have huge implications not just for controlling poverty, unemployment, and technology but also whether people of different ethnic backgrounds will get along. I see the education value as one of the linchpins of creating a stable society that won't descend into extreme nationalism provided other policies are used to help get people jobs and keep poverty under control. As far as the quality of education, it'd be hard I guess to see in real life how putting the max possible amount of money into public schools will improve the quality of education quickly but I don't see why it couldn't.

You mentioned faith in education too I think. School prayers might not help people learn better but subsidizing faith schools might be of great help to society but it doesn't come without some initial risks. It'd be highly controversial in the early stages but I see the subsidy of faith schools as only improving the level of education in society, not harming it.

Sex education doesn't help with any of that and is useful mostly for managing the attitudes of some voter groups toward you and not much else. All in all I don't know if I'm right at all but that's what I think.

Education occurs in many forms for many purposes through many institutions. Examples include early childhood education, Essay writing service UK, kindergarten through to 12th grade, two and four year colleges or universities, graduate and professional education, adult education and job training. Therefore, education policy can directly affect the education people engage in at all ages.

Just arrangements giving usable learning or aptitudes should influence training: sports, langage, school financing.

Every single other kind of approaches that takes educational time without showing aptitudes ought to really reduce the training worth and influence different esteems. Sex training is socially valuable and influences conduct yet doesn't instruct any type of aptitudes. School supplications and singing the national song of praise requires some investment (very little) that could be utilized for different things. Mandatory games classes enhances wellbeing by enhancing physical wellness yet doesn't enhance training in itself.

This could be offset an uncancellable arrangement characterizing educational time. More educational time costs all the more however implies instructors have more opportunity to educate.

In any case, this implies maximizing the training worth should just influence innovation, profitability and other absolutely sparing figures and approaches with respect to instruction should influence different pieces of information.

On the off chance that there are excessively couple of understudies then instructors will begin to be unemployed so you can alter the sex training approach for example to attempt to alleviate that sort of awful circumstance. Be that as it may, there are other Essay Writing Service | essayChamp, better, polices that you can use to oversee populace development and keep instructors from being unemployed. That being stated, I feel that the instruction level just speaks to how gifted and proficient your populace is and that can have colossal ramifications for controlling destitution, unemployment, and innovation as well as whether individuals of various ethnic foundations will get along. I see the instruction esteem as one of the linchpins of making a steady society that won't dive into extraordinary patriotism gave different strategies are utilized to help land individuals positions and monitor destitution. To the extent the nature of training, it'd be hard I figure to find, in actuality, how putting the maximum conceivable measure of cash into government funded schools will enhance the nature of instruction rapidly however I don't perceive any reason why it proved unable.
