Study Shows Value of Centenary’s Liberal Arts Education


Shreveport, LA (PRWEB) January 22, 2014

Workers with liberal arts bachelors degrees earn more at their career peak than those with professional or pre-professional undergraduate degrees, according to a new study. The report How Liberal Arts and Sciences Majors Fare in Employment was released today.

The value of a degree in the liberal arts and sciences is one of the best kept secrets in higher education, said Matt Bailey, Senior Director of External Relations at Centenary College of Louisiana. Many institutions today offer preparation for starting a job in a particular field. At Centenary, we are preparing our graduates for success throughout their careers as they advance to their third or fourth or fifth job. A liberal arts education develops leaders who can overcome challenges, adapt to the changing world, and weather economic shifts to achieve career success over decades. So the findings of this study come as no surprise to us.

The report responds directly to families concerns about the value of a higher education, especially one in a liberal arts or sciences discipline. The study found that four out of five employers seek candidates who have broad knowledge in the liberal arts and sciences. Ninety-three percent of employers agree that critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which are at the center of a liberal arts education, are more important than a workers undergraduate major. The study also reported that the unemployment rate for both recent liberal arts graduates and mature workers with liberal arts degrees is well below the national average.

This report mirrors what those who teach in liberal arts institutions have argued for some time, said Centenary Professor of Economic David Hoaas. An education rooted in the liberal arts not only makes individuals productive global citizens, but it also leads to increased lifetime earnings. The world needs and has always needed individuals who have a firm foundation in critical thinking skills.

The report was published by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the National Center for Higher Education Management System (NCHEMS) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Spencer Foundation, and the Teagle Foundation.

Chicago, Il (PRWEB) August 28, 2012

Our current test-focused education system is failing the majority of students who need to learn visually. After more than 20 years teaching children, building curriculum and researching the impact of art on childrens education, Bette Fetter, founder and CEO of Young Rembrandts Franchise, shares her insights with parents and educators in a new blog and book titled Being Visual: Raising a Generation of Innovative Thinkers. Both the book and blog are powerful tools for parents, educators, and anyone interested in improving educational outcomes for all learners.

The Being Visual blog provides tips and tricks designed to help your child learn better, make homework easier and increase your childs self-confidence in the classroom.

????The importance of art in a childs development and education
????Visual needs of students with autism, ADD and dyslexia

In her new book, Being Visual (available September 2012), Fetter shares what her experience, clinical research and educational experts have to say about the way children learn, ways to improve education, and the value of arts on developing minds.

About the Author

About Young Rembrandts

Founded in 1988 by Bette Fetter, Young Rembrandts has become a recognized leader in art education. What began as one person, working with children in her home, has developed into an international business that teaches drawing to tens of thousands of students every week. Fetter applied her fine arts education and background in child development to create an original, step-by-step method to teach children drawing, the fundamental skill of all visual arts.

Research and education experts say what Young Rembrandts has always delivered: there is a significant correlation between involvement in the arts and achievement in the classroom. Children who learn to draw using the Young Rembrandts method develop spatial reasoning and fine motor skills, order and sequencing abilities, visualization, and self-discipline as well as fundamental art skills. Its original curriculum introduces concrete ideas and techniques that enlarge visual vocabularies, enrich imaginations and develop young minds.

Today, Young Rembrandts partners with pre-schools, elementary schools and community centers to either augment or supply their art education programs, giving children ages 3 ? to 12 an academic advantage in the classroom. Young Rembrandts has a solid reputation for offering well-organized classes and teaching original, high quality curriculum in a positive environment.

GOOD NEWS – State Career Education Leaders Say “Entrepreneurship Skills Are Extremely Important for the Future”


Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) February 21, 2012

The 6th Annual National Entrepreneurship Week is featuring local entrepreneurs such as Joe Russell of Russell’s Cycling + Fitness, a bicycle shop in Washington, IL.????This entrepreneur demonstrated his interest in mentoring the students of the Business Entrepreneurship Class at Washington Community High School, in the winning video interview for “Hot Shot Entrepreneurs”. YouTube link The competition was sponsored by the Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education with the winning video posted on the National Entrepreneurship Week website.????

Entrepreneurship Education, like this Illinois program, is alive and well in most of the United States, with various types of action being taken to support entrepreneurship as a career choice in the public schools of different states.

SURVEY OF STATES – To honor the 6th annual celebration of National Entrepreneurship Week, the host (The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education) conducted a survey of the state education leaders to determine “THE STATE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION, 2012″. The goal was to explore where each state stands on providing entrepreneurial experiences with emphasis on K-12 programs.

Most significant from the survey, 80% of the states said “Entrepreneurship skills are extremely important to the future.” However, for the most part, these state leaders have not taken major steps to include entrepreneurship education in the curriculum. Important results included:


????More than two-thirds of the states said “they have standards that include entrepreneurship competencies”. Even more said they “offer separate classes in entrepreneurship” (76%), and almost all (90%) said the “colleges offered entrepreneurship education.”

????When asked if their teacher training/certification had requirements for teacher preparation to support entrepreneurship education, 80% said “no” or they were “not sure”. When you consider that most teachers have not been entrepreneurs it seems obvious that this is a major area of needed teacher preparation.

????When asked how entrepreneurship was taught in their state, 75% said “optional use of business plan development in various courses” followed by 44% that said “they have summer camps for selected students”. The concepts of “problem-based learning activities”, a series of “entrepreneurial experiences”, “preparation for questions on state tests”, and “opportunities for advanced placement credit” were not identified as frequently used.???? The dependence on a written business plan as preparation for starting a business is a limiting educational approach. However this is often the only answer in both high schools and colleges.

????The Consortium is delighted that 78% of the states reporting, said that data from the Consortiums newsletters focusing on the FORUM, webinars, and websites regarding the development of the entrepreneurial climate have been used to enhance entrepreneurial education in their state.

We invite all interested in nurturing the entrepreneurial mindset with American youth to see the entire report, entitled “THE STATE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION 2012″ at http://www.entre-week.org under “Hot Topics”. We are particularly encouraged by the state leadership that is now moving toward including entrepreneurship competencies in state educational standards.

CELEBRATIONS EVERYWHERE – Across the nation there are major events being staged this week at state and local venues during this, the 6th annual National Entrepreneurship Week. Educators and entrepreneurs alike recognize the importance of the contributions of American risk-takers as they create jobs and build the economy. Many governors are showing their support for “free enterprise” with state proclamations for the Week. The Consortium’s website http://www.entre-week.org is a collection of pictures, stories, and events created by the network of those that believe….

“Entrepreneurs are not ‘born’ … rather they ‘become’ through the experiences of their lives.”

Parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and community leaders everywhere will want American Youth to seek their opportunities to become self-reliant and develop the skills to create their own future.????

LET’S ALL CELEBRATE THE 6TH ANNUAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK, February 18 – 25, 2012!

ABOUT THE CONSORTIUM FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION-

The members are champions for “entrepreneurship education” at all levels of education and across all disciplines in America and the world. We encourage education leaders everywhere to join us in sharing ideas for empowering youth and adults to recognize the opportunities of an entrepreneurial career and develop the knowledge and skills that lead to success. We believe that multiple education experiences are all part of preparing students to be the entrepreneurial leaders of the future.

The Consortium was created by the International Enterprise Academy at the Ohio State University in 1980 and has become a private, non-profit corporation since 1998. The Consortium provides an annual national professional development conference for teachers, created and supports National Entrepreneurship Week, maintains websites and produces regular newsletters sharing the work of its members and the field of entrepreneurship education.
