Perhaps the most discussed, and the one that creates the strongest opinion, is school vouchers. It is because of the perceived view that students going to private schools are getting the opportunity to continue to utilize public funding that causes a lot of disagreement. There is a belief that funding going to private school attendees reduces the amount of monies available for the neighborhood public
The monitoring part of the Consent Decree was created to make sure the program is running as it should. Monitoring include a periodic review of program compliance, equal access under the Florida Educational Equity Act, and review of program effectiveness (“Consent Decree”, 1990).

One of the biggest opposition with Universal Per-K is funding. With the costs of Universal Pre-K often being deemed “underestimated,” opponents want to know who will be paying for it. Some even argue that the state should not be providing these services and allow existing agencies to continue operating Pre-K Programs. Whether or not you’re a proponent or opponent for the Universal Pre-K Initiative the impact it will have on the Early Childhood Education workforce is apparent. The impact can be looked at both positively or negatively.
In most cases, history has proven that way of running your society is not the most successful way of doing things. Other than the American citizens, another major factor that the 14th Amendment affects is the education system. Keeping the equality between all students is key in today's world.

The purpose of education is to improve our thinking which can lead to success. Defining modern schooling and its effectiveness proves to be quite controversial. Based on how the unsatisfactory system is run and the claim that it produces immaturity causes people to start questioning if mandatory schooling is really necessary to achieve an education. School determines the type of education a student is allowed to receive based on their social class meaning that the upper class may have access to better books and programs while the poor can not. John Taylor Gatto stated in his essay, "Against School," that the American education system adopted its concept from the Prussian system; one idea that instilled separating and educating students based on
A similar feud is currently going on over whether intelligent design, another psuedoscientific “theory” should be taught in public school. Shockingly, the nonsensical argument laid out above seems to be the strongest case the intelligent design crowd seems to have in favor of their position. Another argument that the pro-ID crowd uses is that scientific consensuses have been wrong before, for example in regards to the cause of stomach ulcers (Source A). In the case, the idea that ulcers
The one that he particularly disagrees with is the direct/indirect distinction espoused by Justice O’Connor and four other justices. As Perry puts it, “I cannot fathom why it should make a constitutional difference that voucher money goes directly to a parent, who then gives it to the school, rather than directly to the school, upon certification that an eligible child has enrolled there” (10). Perry views both of these cases as constitutionally identical. He is wrong. In a later case (Ohio Pilot Project) that Perry himself brings up, Justice O’Connor endorsed a school voucher program that had the voucher “checks are mailed to the school selected by the parents, where the parents are required to endorse the checks over to the school in order to pay tuition” (10).
9). Whether educational reform is a political and/or education issue, it is one educators cannot avoid. Making sense of the current educational reform, CCSS, presents educators with opportunities and challenges. This is a big shift in thinking, planning, development, and implementation. According to Achieve (2012), for CCSS to be implemented effectively and achieve desired outcomes principals and teachers must have adequate supports and guidance.
YES! to School Uniforms Traditionally, private schools and parochial institutions, favor the use of school uniforms of students. Especially in the Philippines where wearing of school uniforms is considered the norm, even in public schools. Here in Silliman University, its seems the debate of “should we or shouldn’t we” and the pros and cons of the use of school uniforms is a never-ending debate. Strong opinions of those pro in the implementation of school uniforms countered with just as fervent rebuttals.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law that protects the rights of students with disabilities enrolled in public schools receiving federal funds.
