Since 2006, overall SAT scores have dropped by 21 points. It is safe to say that the increase in standardized testing has done more bad than good. When standardized testing became more prominent, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) saw a plateau in reading and math scores. Additionally, the NAEP saw no further closure in the test score gap. The test score gap affects all minorities.
Children also get affected in this way because if the husband is always controlling the money spent, then the children may not get things that they need. If, say, the wife ends up getting a divorce, this affects the children because they may end up homeless for a while until their mother finds some sort of income. They may also change neighborhoods because the mother may not be able to afford the neighborhood they used to live in. The children will be mostly affected because they will lose all their friends, change their lifestyle completely and this may also cause a change in behavior. These children lose everything because of the divorce.
III. Wes Moore made The Other Wes Moore to exhibit that if kids don 't have strong parental figures they won 't be viable in life. There is a strong credibility that if Mary had taken an other, more dynamic part in Wes ' life, his life would have turned out in a surprising way. By intervening at any of those basic events in Wes ' childhood, Mary could have had an impact in Wes ' future essential administration, and lead him down a substitute way. Or maybe, Wes now should be a parent to his children from in a remedial office.
Some parents might say no one should tell me how to raise my children, everyone must raise their child as they wishes, I can answer them that not what you think is what will happen, raising a child must be under conditions that help them to improve, and that in the last years a lot of parents whom did not attend classes, their children had problems. I can also pursue him by showing a real life example of a successful program and their effect, according to a fall 2009 article published in The Future of Children. Author Richard P. Barth, dean of the school of social work at the University of Maryland-Baltimore, examined research on several programs: Focus on Families, the Thresholds Mothers’ Project and the Incredible Years. The first program for a mother in methadone treatment, the second is for mothers with mental illness and the third for children with mental problems.
Summary: The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore explores the journey of two men by the same name who grow up in similar neighborhoods, but end up with different endings. The book shares the stories of both men who highlight significant events in their life that led one to be a businessman, while the other a convict in prison for murder without the possibility of parole. When Moore discovers Wes’s story he begins to correspond with him and it is their correspondence that inspired this book. First of all, Part One explains the childhood of the two boys and how both had an absent father. However, Wes loses his father because of a virus that goes undetected by doctors, while the other does not have a father because he chose to leave his child.
When we grow up, we will not even have time for ourselves let alone our families. This is basically torturing them from the time they are born, how can we expect them to be happy when we decide everything for them? Not every child is keen on learning; they may prefer having fun, being free and not objectified with what they do. Parents should know better as they were once children as well. Before putting them in such a huge competition, we should put ourselves in their position and see how they
Marriage represents a union between two people who can trust each other; however, in today’s society more people suffer from social isolation in reaction to their partner’s failure. Although society overflows with various ways to communicate, ironically many people feel like they have no one to confide in. In recent studies, the Washington Post proved, “more than double” of Americans felt isolated than surveyed in 1985 (Vedantam). In Shankar Vedantam’s article, “Social Isolation Grow in U.S., Study Says,” he distinguishes that 50% more people surveyed that their spouse is the only person they can trust compared to the survey of 1985.
As we all know, children are need of fully attention from their parents.

(Kurtus, 2012) The study aims to know the reasons why students get failing or low grades. This study will identify the possible root causes of this problem.

In 2009, almost 45 percent of Latina females under five years old were enrolled in school while only 39 percent of Latino males were enrolled. When third grade comes around boys tend to be more than a year behind than girls in writing and reading skills. This shows that there is a serious problem within the education system because it isn’t right for males to be that far behind of what school districts want the kids to be taught. It gets even worse, boys that are colored are at a higher chance of experiencing great differences in consequences and punishments such as suspension and expulsion (Sáenz and Ponjuán, 2012). It saddens me to know that we live in the year 2015 and we still see people experience racism and inequality just because the color of his or her
Some studies show that wealthier students that score high on the tests have taken numerous prep classes and even had private tutors come in and help them prepare for these tests, which cost hundreds of dollars, and lower-class students cannot afford them which puts them at a disadvantage no matter how smart they may be.(Soares and Ovaska). Soares ' research has found that tests like the ACTs and SATs put low-income and minority students at significant disadvantages and have resulted in a lack of diversity at the nation 's four-year colleges, including public universities in the University of North Carolina system. He thinks high school grade point averages (GPA) would give admissions counselors a better grasp of a student 's abilities without the gender and racial biases that test scores carry. Soares shared his thoughts recently with N.C. Policy Watch, and told us why he thinks North Carolina 's public university system should turn its back on the ACTs and
