2. Why do women get better grades than men do? According to (Gnaulati, 2014), Across the globe, girls earn higher grades than boys in all grade levels and academic subjects. This is based in a recent study by psychology professors, Daniel and Susan Voyer of University of Brunswick.

Michael Benotti Dr. Stoffer ENG 131 29 January 2018 College Tuition Unfair to Some People Like many people today, especially in America, they say that college is an opportunity that most would look forward to after graduating from a secondary education. However, the price of tuition in many schools is what concerns many individuals who seek the opportunity of pursuing their dreams and goals. When it comes to tuition, people would view the price tag and might have doubts about attending college or even question if college is the best option at all. Also, many colleges will offer financial aid, scholarships, and grants to their future students, especially the ones who come from a low-income family. For a student from a high-income family, the amount of aid will be significantly lower, and the overall cost will be higher.
In recent years, while Baltimore city schools have dramatically reduced suspensions, the dropout rate has been cut almost in half. One might say that it is a students choice to drop out or not, but many students dropout of school due to peer pressure and some students may feel like they are not good enough just because they can not catch up to the academic level of their peers because they were absent due to their suspension or suspensions. Therefore students who are suspended have a harder time catching up to their academic level and often dropout for this
The unemployment rate of black is two times greater than unemployment rate of white (Fields and Weller, 2011). In 2011, the black unemployment rate was equal to 16.1 percent, while it was just 7.9 percent for whites (Fields and Weller, 2011). Schnurer (2014) states that “Giving more people a shot at economic success produces greater gains for society because more people are contributing”. According to World Bank research findings the main reason for languishing economy in Arab countries is exclusion of women from economic contribution (Schnurer, 2014). The second example of unequal distribution of income in the US is inequality between income of college graduators and non-college graduators.
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the largest standardized test administered in the United States, reports that fewer than 40 percent of graduating seniors have mastered reading and math, and are poorly equipped for college and reality. At college level, the main issue is affordability and student debt. Cost inflation in university education has led to a significant increase in student borrowing. When students take on large debts, they face two kinds of risks. First, some students face completion risk because they may drop out of college.
Being at work constantly has impacted their school attendance, making them miss school on a frequent ba-sis. Certainly, this influences their academic performances and in the end can result in increased risk of dropping out of school. In particular, the risk of dropping out school also relates to income constraint within the household. The bigger number of working household members im-plies a larger shared income within the household that could reduce the proba-bility of dropping out school. Additional income collected from multiple fami-ly members could alleviate financial problems within the household.
The rate of people graduating is going down because college is too expensive for many families in the U.S, and CBS News claims, “the US now has 30 million jobs for less-educated workers” Everyone has a passion for something. This thing may be a hobby like baking, woodwork, or art. Many kids think they cannot make this a reality, but this is a possibility. College doesn’t ensure that your passion that you may have had for a very long time will become a reality. College is an opportunity that may or may not work in your favor.
However, children and families have not been the only victims of social pressure. As school populations rose, schools could not maintain the growth that had previously been exploited. The pressure faced by schools to support withstand a large group of students is evidently shown as education has been poor in developing countries. Furthermore, the social pressure faced by schools and families has added to the gender gap in literacy and academics. According to a source, fourteen of fifty-one developing countries show poor literacy for women.
A study conducted by the Department of the Education shows that minority students make up nearly half of all public school enrollment—with three-fourths of both African American and Hispanic students enrolled at a school where their peers are qualify as poor or low-income. However, the discrepancy of the numbers between the total population and public school demographics is explained by two factors: the population of young minorities in the U.S. and the rate of white students enrolled in private schools versus those in public schools. Regardless, minority teachers only make up 18% of the teacher workforce; highlighting disproportionate representation in the learning environment. And research done by Stanford professor, Thomas S. Dee, reveals that students of color perform better when they have at least one teacher of the same race. Teachers serve as a role model and authorial adult figure early in a student’s life.
HOW TEACHERS CAN HELP STUDENTS WHO FAIL IN CLASS TO SUCCEED IN LIFE Teachers are not just pillars of school, but they are the pillars of society, nation and an individual. They play a vital role from shaping student’s personality to shaping their career. With increasing awareness for education, demands for qualified and hardworking teachers are stacking up. There are approximately 1.3 million schools in India which means there is a rise in jobs in education sector and thus, teaching training becomes necessary so that it can cater to every school and its teachers. Unfortunately, some schools are not able to up their game because of high number of failed students leading to discrediting of schools most importantly their heads.
