The Arkansas Department of Higher Education is working to make applying for scholarships and obtaining degrees easier than ever before.
“Arkansas is legendary for its people, for the work ethic and things of that nature, but perhaps maybe not for education as of yet,” said Jim Purcell, director of Arkansas Department of Higher Education. “So we’ve got to be concerned; there are a lot of things we need to do.”
All children have the potential to construct their own learning, with the proper resources.
That is one of the basic principles of a unique curriculum now being offered at The Learning Center Preschool, located in west Batesville.
Sherri Traw, owner and lead teacher, announced that The Learning Center has recently changed the curriculum format to a Reggio Emilia Approach, named after an Italian village that developed the new educational philosophy focused on preschool and primary education.
CAVE CITY — While in college, Michael Wilson was unsure exactly what he wanted to do for a living.
“I went and visited several different professionals and followed them around, watching what they do for half a day, and nothing was really exciting,” Wilson said.
“Then I went and spent half a day with Dr. Ron Erwin in Batesville, and within five minutes of following him around, I knew what I wanted to do. I left there very excited.”
Today, Dr. Wilson and his staff celebrate their 20th year in his Wilson Chiropractic Clinic in Cave City.
