A report was done by the Research Center of Immigration Studies according to the report the RCOI found a correlation between the decline in American youth (16-24 years of age) employment and a significant increase in the amount of immigrant employment over the last decade. This means Illegal immigrants are taking jobs and there are no jobs left for the youth to take. The reason for this is the youth must then take wages lower than the immigrants to get the jobs which is little to none. Since most job immigrants take are unskilled, low end jobs these usually do not require a lot of experience. An example, usually jobs that don’t require a high school education, now guess who is an unskilled and doesn’t not have a high school diploma the youth of America.
This change will never be possible, if every year millions of bright young students cannot afford to go to college. As, million more leave school badly in debt. We need to find a way to fix this so that we do not abatement as a country. Because I’m for sure tried of sitting back and noticing other countries like Germany and Sweden gaining a better economy then us. As our economic becomes fragile, because we are about 1.2 trillions in students loans.
Pakistan has now been improving a bit in quiet a few years. India has also been improving their standard of education. India had cost around $40 billion in the year of 2008 for private education market. But they should still focus on their professors who have not got a PhD or a master’s degree. And there is one more problem, according to me, is that they should also spend money on the government schools in the rural areas because there is a lot of poverty still in India and not many people can afford to send their children to private schools.
Also, studies show that the current minimum age drinking laws have been ineffective to a high degree. By the time they are high school seniors, seventy-two percent teenagers say they have already consumed alcohol. Proper education at younger ages is needed for our country’s youth to learn the proper use of alcohol through experimentation with their own limits in safe environments.
Additionally, the author mentions that according to the professor’s research, the “score gap between American students and those in the highest-ranked countries” decreases by “25 percent in math and 40 percent in reading” once adjustments for the student’s socioeconomic status have been made. However, this problem is getting harder for public schools to solve as “[t]he public school population is getting poorer”. Porter then introduces Andreas Schleicher, the top educational expert of O.E.C.D who runs the PISA tests, as Schleicher firmly disagrees with Professor Carnoy’s claims. According to Professor Carnoy’s results, “fewer than 15 percent” of American students should be from families of lower socioeconomic status, but Schleicher found that “65 percent of principals in American schools say at least 30 percent of their students come from disadvantaged families”. Porter shows how Schleicher’s discoveries discredit Professor Carnoy’s, in terms of logic, and by doing so, he equalizes both sides of the debate.
The idea of classroom causing problems for America’s society is elaborated when President Johnson explains that many children in America don’t have enough money to afford school. “There your children’s lives will be shaped. Our society will not be great until every young mind is set free to scan the farthest reaches of thought and imagination.” In order for a society to be great, education is the foundation; schools are where child learn about their world, and what it is they will do in the future to earn money to live a good life. And to better prove his idea Johnson states, “Each year more than 100,000 high school graduates, with proved ability, do not enter college because they cannot afford it,” then questions what will happen in years when time has become elapsed to conclude any efforts are needed to come into play for there to be a Great Society. Another statement about classrooms is they are “outdated”- as Johnson calls it.
Unemployment also goes into hand with homelessness and panhandling, because there is not enough jobs people are ending up homeless and looking for other ways to get money. Why are youth more likely to be unemployed than adults, and is unemployment among youth becoming a social problem? Unemployed Youth Youth that are unemployed are ages 15 to 24 and do not have a job but are looking to work. Normally at this age youth are in high school, just finishing high school and do not have enough education or job experience that a job requires or they may be in a post-secondary school and are not able to balance both a job and school. This
But even when they didn’t learn English themselves, their children grew up speaking it. Thousands of first-generation Americans still strive to learn English, but others face reduced educational and career opportunities because they have not mastered this basic skill they need to get ahead. According to the 1990 census, 40 percent of the Hispanics born in the United States do not graduate from high school, and the Department of Education says that a lack of proficiency in English is an important factor in the drop-out rate. People and agencies that favor providing services only in foreign languages want to help people who do not speak English, but they may be doing these people a disservice by condemning them to a linguistic ghetto from which they cannot easily escape. And my niece?
This is a perfect example of institutional racism where youth come from low- income families are place in environments to set to fail. On the other hand, youth that come from affluent families are given opportunities and resources where they are set to be successful in their education. In the graph given it shows that in 2013 in LAUSD only 77percent of seniors graduated; nevertheless, at SMMUSD 93.5 of their seniors graduated. the core problem with current school policies is that they are not applied equally nor they are set up to motivate youth of color to engage
Setting a minimum wage attempts to assure that citizens will not be totally taken advantage of in the workforce. Of course, there are some instances where people get paid minimum wage to do very difficult jobs that they should be making much more at, but for the most part the minimum wage is a useful guideline for companies to refer to when setting their wages. Today teenagers commonly think of the minimum wage and what the article refers to as a “crappy job” together. Williams writes in his articles that he and his friends
College students and graduates are facing debt, unemployment/ drops in wages, and some would rather learn with their hands. Many college graduates are facing unemployment, leaving students and parents to question if college is worth the cost. The answer is no. Student debt has significantly increased. “If you get this wrong, it’s actually a mistake that’s hard to undo for the rest of your life”(Peter Thiel co-founder of PayPal).
The argument that the Pleasantville School should require students to complete 40 hours of community service prior to graduation is built on some weak assumptions that fail to support the point and convince the reader. and it also misses some major points in discussing the issue in hand. First , the argument mentions that the number of teenage volunteers has declined, but it doesn`t investigate the reasons that made teenagers refuse the community services. it would be better for the writer to tell us what caused the problem in order to know what would the best solution to it be. Second, the writer assumes that requiring high school students to engage in the community service would help the local charities.
Child poverty fell to 2.3 million in 2010/11, however this did not meet the Governments target of halving child poverty, this number remained consistent up until 2012/13 (Kennedy, 2014). Universal Credit Universal credit is a new benefit that is paid to those who are on a low income or unemployed. Introducing this system allows individuals to be eased into working, it is seen as an incentive to get individuals into employment. It will
The Federal Emergency Relief Act and Civil Works Administration provided federal jobs for the unemployed (FERA and CWA). Also, training was provided for unemployed youth and students in need of help through the National Youth Administration (NYA). Relief was also provided by the Fair Labor Standards Act, which established a minimum wage of .40¢ and maximum 40 hour work week (Fair Labor Standards Act). Despite the abundance of opportunities for the unemployed, the unemployment rate was still off the charts. In the year of the stock market crash, 1929, the unemployment rate was 3.2% and in 1933, FDR’s first year in office, it soared to 25.2%.
These people think the immigrants may drop out of college, then the sponsors will lose the money they provided. Sponsoring Hope will provide a contract, including if the immigrant does not finish their schooling, then they will still be entitled to the money they owe and could be deported. “The best estimate is that in 2003–04, about a quarter of the nation 's 6.5 million degree-seeking community college students came from an immigrant background (Teranishi, Saurez-Orozco, Saurez-Orozco).” This research shows many immigrants are capable of learning challenging college information, but they are not always given the chance to try. Sponsoring Hope will be their chance. Moreover, these individuals have chosen to do whatever they can to come to America and receive an education, for them dropping out of college is not an option.
