Kareem Abdul-Jabber writes an article explaining the attack on education and the serious problems in the classroom involving teachers and students. Abdul-Jabbar describes how students only hold on to one perspective; students should explore different perspectives on topics, and question education’s opinions on practical matters. Republicans, Democrats, and non-partisan discuss this controversy over education. Abdul-Jabbar demonstrated bias by outlining his side of the argument, to where the other argument had little outlining.

Huxley has a theory of entertainment as control and we can see it throughout his book Brave New World. The fact that his vision was made years ago, makes this vision even more interesting, because knowing that entertainment has a big impact into our society for the book reveals similar forms of entertainment to control it’s people. The ways that the book was created has brought to conclusion that our society is controlled by entertainment. Our society has become a trivial culture preoccupied with entertainment.
Others believe that it will never happen, such as Robert Pondiscio believe that President Obama's statements are “arrant nonsense”. Pondiscio goes on to say “The federal government has virtually no say about how much time schools spend testing. The vast majority of tests that our children take are driven by states and school districts, as well individual schools and teachers, not by Washington.” The author believes that President Obama has no control over the school board and the amount of standardized testing student take in the
Thank you so much for taking your time out of your very busy days to join us. It is always wonderful to share thoughts with people of your expertise, especially on a subject that affects my everyday life. Education is paramount to achieving success, and living in the modern world. In my school we take several standardized tests that are supposed to measure how much knowledge I’ve retained throughout the year. These exams have changed the way that children are taught, and have made public schools int a limited learning environment. In fact 70 percent of educators surveyed in 2015 say that tests are not developmentally appropriate. Furthermore many students suffer a great deal of stress because of standardized tests.What’s most shocking is that instead of lower income schools getting better after tests were implemented they have actually gotten worse.
In many countries living in extremely poor conditions, not only is basic health an issue but also the lack of education. Although it is a necessity, “more than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate” (Rights to Education 1). The deprivation of education should be taken serious if a change is wanted. People need to become aware of how important education is and the benefit that it has. Douglas and Malala struggled to gain an education in order to resist control by others, which affected their lives in multiple ways; however, they were able to reveal the value of education to all.

With the power of education we are able to deal with the problems of economic, government, religion and culture differences.
Alix Spiegel’s article, “Struggle For Smarts? How Eastern And Western Cultures Tackle Learning” tells a story of the contrasts between western and eastern education. (Spiegel, 2012) As I read the article, I thought about my experiences in education growing up in the small country of Jamaica. Similar to the Japanese class Jim Stigler found himself in, I remember Jamaican classes being crowded and underdeveloped. Similar to the article, I remember education being a major social focus in Jamaica. Students that were considered strong or fast learners were considered smart. I remember my brother and sister coming home from school and talking about who was first in their class, in math and science. I remember my brother, at one point, struggling with a math concept and doing whatever he could to figure it out. Days after days went by as he attempted to practice, teaching himself and master this one particular math concept. When he finally figured it
In 2007 when Diane Ravitch descended from her 20,000-foot view of the education reform landscape to examine what was going on at ground level, she did not like what she saw: children suffering nose-bleeds and vomiting from test anxiety, school personnel and parents humiliated by test results designed to satisfy the failure quotas imposed by cynical and self-serving corporate privateers and political ideologues; educators being blamed for the effects of poverty that no amount of good teaching could fix alone; untrained beginners replacing education professionals in schools that needed the most caring and experienced teachers; schools that had functioned as community centers of identity and activity being closed; a pathological fixation of quantifiable
Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” (Education). Education is a crucial making an intelligent and prosperous world. Every person is entitled to an equal education, deserving to be taught and have the ability to learn at the same beneficial level as any other person. However, the disparity between what some have for a school and what others have for schools that far surpass the others is unacceptable. Children in the United States are not getting the education they deserve to receive. Jonathan Kozol wrote Savage Inequalities that portrays the conditions that children must go to school with. After reading Kozol’s writing, the schools in the United States have vast differences that put
