Children from disadvantaged families usually do not have the same opportunities as those children from wealthier families to receive quality education; and public funding never fully levels the playing field since rich families are able to invest more in their children’s education by buying into neighbourhoods with better schools or better extracurricular activities (Adomait & Maranta, 2012, p. 114). Because of the less fortunate children’s minimal education, they will find badly paid jobs and earn less as adults. As badly educated citizens, they will not have much power in the political process, and will not be able to influence spending decisions to improve public schools for their children. Therefore, governments must seek to broaden the opportunities of those citizens who are disadvantaged. According to the aforementioned publication by Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the realisation of an efficiency and equity trade-off in education could be obtained through several ways.
While academics are important, students should spend time playing sports, socializing, doing chores, etc. In addition, most schools only have the budget to pay the best students, so competition between classmates would increase. Overall, the stress added by offering monetary awards is not beneficial. In conclusion, high schools should not pay their students for receiving good grades. Money is not always the best incentive for achievement, especially because it often builds stress and greed.
problem lies in the fact that most public schools have fixed costs from heating costs to teaching staff that cannot easily be adjusted or downscaled when a few students leave in a given year. The result equates to “squeezed funding at traditional public schools” (Daniel Simmons Ritchie). School choice is not necessary. According to Julie Mack, “the neighborhood school is not necessary a good environment for every child” because one size does not fit all. May it be because the neighborhood school is too big, or not big enough; too academically ambitious or not academically ambitious enough; classmates may be problematic.
This is not just an educational but an economic issue and as such, every segment of society should support. The government did not pay a lot attention on the preschool education and that make the preschool education confused, so the preschool education need more government support. Parents did not have an awareness to let their children to preschool education. Some parents strongly believe that it is not necessary to let their children attend the preschool education. The reason why is parents can also give children own teaching as much as possible or they think that the child is too young, and less on the early education but also not extremely clear about the age of the preschool education.
As technology increases, textbooks are becoming more obsolete, but can still be used in classrooms. Textbooks are a resource that can benefit students greatly, but there are school districts throughout America that simply can’t afford new textbooks. “The court noted that ‘they go to the very heart of education,’ and that they ‘are the most essential tool of education since they contain the resources of knowledge which the educational process is designed to exploit’” (Merjian 12). Even though the courts agreed that the textbooks are a benefit to students, they feel as though it is up to the school districts to provide them. Which leads to the major problem, some school districts can’t afford them.
In the school environment social classes are irrelevant because they are all presented with the same education that allows them to learn at the same pace. Gladwell comments that when the educational environments change, “virtually all of the advantages that wealthy students have over poor students are the result of differences in the way privileged kids learn while they are not in school (258)”. The wealthy students are able to indulge in extra curricular activities, books, programs that enable them to advance their knowledge. This opportunity and support is rarely presented to the lower-class families, because parents have a harder time paying for programs and activities, providing educational support, as well as providing time while they are
Some people from SJR are careless too but I still think that there is a higher number of careless people in public schools than in SJR. Wealth does encourage carelessness but in SJR wealth doesn't seem to have an affect on how a person is. That's why I wouldn't really like to attend a school where there is less conspicuous
There will be more kids wearing what they want which would be harder in enforcing a dress code. By having school uniforms most people will follow it and less people will disobey it. Lastly, parents also like school uniforms. Some parents don’t like the fact on kids dressing how they want, but school uniforms will make the school a better place and keep the parents happy. Studies show that %86 of parents like school uniforms and the parents say it is lighter on their pockets.
After reading about the Social Security, I learned that it is not as reliable as every person thoughts it would be. There are constantly adjusting the terms and conditions for the Social Security. So by the time I am retired, I might not be eligible or receive as much income as I should. The other two options are the private pension, which is not for every worker, and personal savings. Even though we do not make additional income from our personal savings, it should be more reliable than the first two choices if I carefully manage and planned out the budgets.
The school funding is not equal in America. Some schools are able to have many different programs and some cannot even afford one. The government is giving more money to schools in the “better” areas, but nothing can tell you what makes one area better than the other. The government wants people to be equal even though they are not giving the money out equally that effects people. The schools in America should have equal funding so that each child can receive the same chance as another.
The VHSL is not giving the people what they believe is right and they are then creating a crack in the system. Schools that are at a disadvantage are in a bad place because of the fact that not everyone in that school will have the opportunity to vote. With all these factors and facts together, passing the bill will benefit everyone and will help make more efficient decision making process and there will no longer be this divide between the VHSL and the
This is another way I support this policy. Little children in China also get a better education because of the policy. A.J. Song also says that Chinese research shows an advantage in education, “they tend to score better on intelligence tests…” He also says,” If you have more kids in your family, they’re probably lacking in education…” (Document F). Children that have a sibling have to split the attention with each other, so when they don’t have a sibling, they get a better education.
