I believe that the purpose of education is to allow students to find out what their passion is in order to help our society grow. Nowadays, the meaning of education has changed a lot.Everyone thinks that what scores students get and what college they go into are all that matter. Marc Prensky, the author of a nonfiction article titled “The Goal of Education is Becoming says that “Our tests—big and small—are an attempt to put numbers around that learning and to rank students in their acquisition of it” (Prensky 1). This is what our world has become today. The only thing society really care about is grades and colleges when the real purpose of education is finding out what every student is really meant to be in the
A recent study released by Pearson that questioned over 400,000 students in grades 6-12 shows that only “48% of students think their teachers care about them…and only 45% of students think teachers care if they are absent from school” (Hare, 2015). This shocking statistic demonstrates what American students think about their teachers. Most students are under the impression that their teachers don’t care about them. When teachers don’t care about their students and allow them to fail, many students with unrealized potential give up on education.
If I were chosen as the Texas Teacher of the Year, my message would be that all students, no matter what, deserve the best quality education. We have our students the
A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything. This quote connects to ‘The Metaphor” by Budge Wilson and The Ron Clark Story by Rain Haines, because most of the students'' in these stories got the privilege of a good education but it’s the teachers that really made a difference in their lives. Good teachers that have a variety of learning techniques, are going to have a better outcome in their classrooms, resulting in more successful, lifelong learners. Teachers that have the ability to adapt to the students learning skills can completely change their grades. The ones that care about the students education and potential in the future will be able to change the way a kid looks at school. Lastly a good teacher should
A child’s education is affected by various elements such as gender, race, environment, economic factors, privilege, and more. These elements shape the outcome of a student’s educational experience and learning. They also determine what and how students will learn. In order to create an appropriate learning environment, there should be a sense of community. In other words, the common goal should be helping students succeed and reach their maximum potential. This includes not only increasing test scores, but also classroom motivation and excitement. Schools should be truly committed to the expanded opportunities available to each of its students while continuing to evolve academic and personal growth.
The pupil’s attainment and achievements are monitored by their teacher, and where a pupil isn’t making as much progress as their peers or falling behind then additional support will be provided.

Students should be given meaningful feedback which is a very crucial point, particularly a verbal one as it allows a dialogue through talk. Misunderstanding can be picked up and addressed. Talk can lead to come across a wrong application of the knowledge and hence rectified immediately, Alexander
Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”. However, in today, some people opine that college education is a worthless investment and waste of time. Against this opinion, law professor, Rodney K. Smith, in his USA Today essay in December, 2011, “Yes, A College Education Is Worth The Costs,” analyzes the importance of education in providing people with job and benefits. His first goal is to raise awareness of the correlation between the educational attainment and income as well as unemployment rate. His second goal is to demonstrate the value of education as an “investment and stewardship”. By establishing his credibility with his personal experiment and his family’s
One issue that is prevalent in the educational institution is the concept of the academic achievement gap bet between minority students and the majority. The issue is expanded upon the concept of how and why minority students are not achieving academically at the same rate of majority students. There are multiple reasons as to why this gap is so prevalent in today’s schools. Some of those reasons include language and cultural barriers, also the idea of how the minority culture views academic performance. These is also a disconnection between students and school that is impacting the way students learn and how much they ultimately learn within the classroom. The academic achievement gap is caused by multiple reasons such as the language barrier
According to some researcher’s experiential learning theory (ELT) has been widely used in management learning research and practice for over thirty-five years. Building on the foundational works of Kurt Lewin, John Dewey and others, experiential learning theory offers a dynamic theory based on a learning series driven by the resolution of the dual tensions of action/reflection and experience/abstraction. These two dimensions state a holistic learning space wherein learning transactions take place between individuals and the environment.
Preparing the music teachers philosophically, psychologically and competently brought about many changes in the United States Education curriculum. While it is a fact that a music teacher must be equipped about music history, theory, literature, and the will to perform, it is also a necessity that they will give emphasis about the contributions of contemporary music and world music. Music have undergone decades of transition that greatly influenced the legality of music instruction. Bennett Reimer's 1971 clarified the relationship between aesthetic principles and music education and his subsequent monograph broadly influenced music teachers to legitimatize music instruction that was based on more deeply felt beliefs regarding the nature and importance of musical experience.
The purpose of education is to create the “catalyst”, - the interest, the imagination, the self-confidence, the enthusiasm for further knowledge that helps a person grow beyond what they believe they can be. Education should help develop skills and knowledge, so students can be productive members of society. The more knowledge you have, the more opportunities you have in life. I think back to my childhood and the teachers that made an impact in my life. I want to be that catalyst for students. I want to send them out into the world being able to realize their full potential and capable of thinking intensively and critically.
" I want teachers to learn that they have to take charge, explain their expectations, be positive with students, and consistently employ both positive reinforcement and negative consequences. These are the skills that form the basis of Assertive Discipline and of any effective program of classroom management" (Canter, n.d.).
