It is a project that is designed against failure through various tracking indicators and visualization measures. Various researches, however, have suggested Indigenous Knowledge as a fundamental indicator in the realization of these goals. This short piece of work visualized the concept of sustainable development in the light of Indigenous knowledge systems and analyse the role it can play in contributing to the realization of global sustainability exploring its values and merits. The paper focuses on the SDG 4 and 17 highlighting the need for a radical exploration of Indigenous knowledge for a more quality education that is inclusive and indigenously informed. It explores the interrelatedness in the values of Indigenous knowledge systems, openness in education/knowledge sharing and sustainable development in the context of Africa settings. It identifies this interrelatedness as a mechanism for the realization of Indigenous knowledge expansion that could help in achieving partnership among world communities as a pathway for international developmental projects sustainability and suggests the need for the birth of theoretical models for data collection towards the realization of documenting and codifying indigenous practices despite its complexities and tactical nature.</p> 2019-07-23T11:24:13+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Influence of Language and English Proficiency on Asian American Educational Attainment and Multigenerational Assimilation 2019-07-23T11:28:47+00:00 Maggie Bohm-Jordan Derrick Shapley Michael Topping <p>This study focused on college completion or higher among Asian American population and the effect of English proficiency and other Asian languages spoken at home. Whether speaking English “well” or “not well” influences individual’s educational attainment. Assimilation theory and social capital theory were utilized. Data utilized form IPUMS 2011, examine six Asian ethnic languages, English proficiency, education, employment status, multigenerational, family formation, income, age, and sex among Asian Americans. Findings show overall English proficiency are statistically significant at the .001 level that Asians who speak English only, “very-well, “well”, and “not well” are more likely to obtain a college degree. Future implications will examine ethnic behaviors and migration patterns on educational attainment.</p> 2019-07-23T11:27:39+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Who Does Nothing Spoils Nothing! 2019-07-23T11:36:40+00:00 Peter Patyi Eva Mydlíková <p><em>This article has been aimed at presenting a&nbsp;repertoire of mistakes made by two groups of experts at preparation, implementation and evaluation of preventive program focused on the increase of children and youth sensitivity to violence in the school environment. It was a&nbsp;group of researchers from the university, and a&nbsp;group of prevention supporters, herein as preventists, from a&nbsp;big non-profitable organization. The two groups worked together in various extents and within various stages of large preventive program application. Preventists from the non-profitable organization required from the researchers to map the program efficiency at elementary schools students. Both researchers and preventists created a&nbsp;tool for identification of children´s attitude to violence. Preventists created their own preventive program that was applied at schools during 8 sessions. Before and after the preventive program attending, the children filled in the same questionnaire of attitude in order to capture the change of their attitude to violence. Reverse analysis of preventive program test results represented a&nbsp;method of obtaining the outputs in order to identify the preventive program efficiency before and after the program application on students and pupils of a&nbsp;single Slovak region. So called „structural type errors“ were identified during detail analysis of preventive program efficiency test results. They are errors made by the group of researchers and preventists in the area of coordination and cooperation in the stage of preparation and implementation of the preventive program.</em></p> 2019-07-23T11:36:17+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Dynamics of Delinquent Peers and Delinquent Behavior: Theory Evaluation 2019-07-23T11:40:04+00:00 Ferid Azemi <p>This article seeks understanding peer association and the causes of delinquent behaviors, the relationships of peer behaviors and the delinquency itself. The data from <em>National Youth Survey</em> are used to estimate cross-legged panel model that corrects the measurement error in indicators of delinquent peers and delinquent behavior. An emphasis of this research paper falls on Wilson’s arguments about reducing juvenile delinquency through deterrence philosophy, and Matsueda and Anderson’s theory of delinquency on peer influence that impact delinquency.&nbsp; Authors of these theories made attempts to explain not only the peer influence and their delinquent acts, but also how the delinquent peers cause delinquency. Results show that, the origin of delinquency is still unknown, due to the fact that peers may influence delinquency, but it is not clear where this learning process began. Peer influence and delinquency may be interrelated. Further studies are needed to understand the learning process of delinquency.</p> 2019-07-23T11:40:04+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
