A Critique of Homeschooling” points out homeschooling undermines the common good in two ways. It withdraws not only children, but social capital from public schools detrimental to the remaining students. It takes away the ability of public education to improve and become more responsive as a democratic institution. Lubienski emphasizes homeschooling will cause the decline of public schools. Lubienski states “It diminishes the potential of public education to serve the common good in a democracy” (207).
Candy and soda shouldn’t be banned from school property. The government shouldn’t be the one to decide whether or not soda and candy should be eaten at school because no matter what they say student are still going to eat candy and drink soda. The obesity problem is not only to to the fact that student eat candy and drink soda
In addition less educated people means less opportunities to become what they want in life, more or less due to the fact that Betsy DeVos does not support public schools and wants to cut some funding. It's a commonly known fact the majority of children in the United States go to public school making families with less money unable to have their children get an equal chance at education. Usually a common thing some people say is that we should just give her a shot and see what is the worst that can happen but history tends to repeat
Wouldn't it be marvelous if schools had a food court? As excited as that sounds, almost all schools don't have food courts provided. Only the richest school districts provide students and staff an inside food court. However, lunch time is an important meal, and it should be spent the way students like. Whether it is a McDonalds hamburger, or a Panera bread salad special, the students should have the freedom to choose.
Whether it be simply the location or the physical condition of the school, the students safety should be the first priority. Studies have shown that students don't work as well in buildings that are too small, or that are situated on busy streets. They achieve less in buildings that are not well maintained (Merjian 17). Students should have a clean facility in which they can learn properly, but sadly this isn't the case in low income school districts. Instead, their buildings are falling apart and are overcrowded.
It has been uphold by the Supreme Court in many ways. In 1947, the New Jersey has passed a law that allowed the state to pay for the students’ bus transportation who attended parochial schools. Although the Court stipulated that no tax could be collected to support religious activities, it still upheld the law of New Jersey because the court believed that the state didn’t help the church directly but for the benefit of students. Besides, the Court opposed the practice that the Regent asked the schools to let students prayer in classroom. Because “no part of the business of government to compose official prayers for any group of the American people to recite as a part of a religious program carried on by government” (Sidlow & Henschen, 78).
The nation is trying to lower the number of obese children but these steps are far too drastic in the wrong direction. With my proposal of bringing my mother, kids would no longer choose the option of starvation rather than consuming school lunch. Not only would the school be saving money, but also feed children healthy nutritious food that will reduce
Many people think that school uniforms are not a good thing to have in schools. Other people think schools uniforms is a great idea for schools. I think school uniforms should not be acquired at school. The first reason schools uniforms is a terrible idea is because they are expensive for parents.
“Fast food restaurants have us hooked on to their tasty food. You See a lot of people buying fast food because how good it tastes. Well let me tell you it is not good for your health. Why do fast food places lower their prices because they know people will buy it if it doesn’t cost that much and most people buy it cause that`s how much they can afford”. Fast food places is a way to not cook every week I feel bad for people when I go to McDonald’s and ask them, do you know what you’re eating in they say
Compulsory Public Education is a Form of Social Control It is common belief that compulsory schooling is good for society and it helps us become a more enlightened group of people. Millions of parents send their children off to school every morning in the United States of America; some believe it is good for their young child’s mind and others just do it because failing to comply is against the law. But we need to ask ourselves why school is mandatory, why do we force our children to attend school? The answer to that question is to maintain social order.
The establishment of these schools also means the “loss of funding for traditional public schools, leading to fiscal inefficiency” (US Connect). The pro side of this debate will argue that charter schools foster innovation and are worth the loss of funding for traditional schools in the long run, however if this is the case, then why have many charter schools across the nation turned into nothing more than money making opportunities for entrepreneurs with very little interest in educational innovation? Not only are these schools taking away from traditional public schools, but they also discourage students with disabilities by counseling them out instead of providing accommodations. This refusal to serve disabled students means traditional public schools are left with a higher-than-expected concentration of students requiring additional resources because they are mandated by
Landing the position of Secretary of Education, DeVos has focused on a single plan to improve education in America. Her plan ties largely into her opinions on school-related topics. She is a major advocate for school of choice. She is also a large supporter of private schools and charter schools. As part of her plan, she thinks that parents should be able to receive vouchers from public funds in order to allow their children to attend the school of their choice.
The system for allocating money is completely unfair and it has completely turned a blind eye to the inflated price tag for managing functional schools. Simply put, while the total operational cost for schools are tremendously expensive the funding amount is not accountable for the
First, these schools begin with a person or a coalition of people creating a charter that lays out their mission. They then take this charter to a board in order to get it and themselves approved to start a school. Next, the founders of the school either need to use their own money or find a sponsor to start up the school by finding a building, purchasing or creating curriculum, and finding teachers and other administrators. Once it is up and running with students, the state will start to give funding, this being a certain amount per pupil, so larger schools will receive more money and smaller schools will receive less funding. Parents must choose to send their kids to charter schools, no child will be placed there because it is the closest school or all the local schools are quite full.
On the Way to School Reflection I have seen that documentary with my mom around the time that it first came out. Back then, I thought it was very well done, but very impactful now. All things considered, this is true because I was actually in a school setting and I could pick up details I hadn’t seen before since I knew that “plot.” Kids all over America take advantage of education.
