College Tuition Shouldn’t just be Handed out In today’s society, some believe that the given opportunity of school is a blessing. Work ethic, sacrifice and the value of the dollar are not valued in today’s society. How must one individual relay such focus on something that is so valued and determined. Multiple persons devote their own life to how well they provided in school system. If everyone is given the same opportunity at the same start why must we prohibit the go getters that came from nothing with new thresh holds in which gives my stand on education is an equal opportunity stands on the revelations of our country’s next generation.
Over the past several decades an “opportunity gap” has grown between kids from “have” and “have not” backgrounds. That gap appears to continue to widen. Many politicians and analysts would rather not address the power imbalances that have channeled so much of our economic growth to the highest-income families. They are much more inclined on focusing on the benign-sounding theme of “wealth creation” or insisting that economic growth alone can improve mobility without any redistribution of resources or political power. Socioeconomic status is unfortunately the strongest predictor of a child’s academic achievement, as decades of social science research have found.
The culture is a important thing when adding it as a factor because some culture/community kids work from a younger age than some other culture/community and some get higher education than others. The last factor that shows why they can’t get a higher education because they don’t have the resources to finance to pay for their higher education. For instance, author Swenson, a journalist from Us Today, explains that “Even if students are required by law to stay in school until they are 18, there is no guarantee that extra time spent in school will make them more prepared to get a job or attend college.” (Swenson). This piece of evidence shows that there isn’t a guarantee that staying in school by law until age 18 won’t help them prepare for there job or college. Some students high school already know what they want to do before they graduate from college.
“A neighbor of mine says she pays her child for any A’s the child gets on her report.” In my opinion paying students for good grades is not a good idea. This issue is important because if kids were encouraged by money , eventually the donor of the money would run out of money. Then what would happen? Would kids refuse to go to school? Not to mention the donor would be taking a valuable gift from the child, this will also lead to practical problems in the classroom, and think what were to happen if the money stopped coming in?
My love of learning helped me to excel through elementary school and upon entering high school I realized that if I wanted to continue learning beyond high school I would need to be able to fund it because the higher education system is not as gracious as Head Start. At that point in time, I had one sibling in college and my parents were supporting two other children and a disabled grandparent, therefore there was no way they would be able to fund me furthering my education. The only possible solution to this was to apply the critical thinking skills and love of learning Head Start provided me with to get good grades so that I would be able to pay for my education through scholarships. Thankfully with hard work, dedication, and the skills Head Start provided me with I was able to graduate with a high enough GPA to qualify for some Georgia scholarships and an honors scholarship for my school that is funding the continuation of my education. I am now well into my second year at Agnes Scott College where I am pursuing a degree in Biochemistry so that I will be able to help ensure the well-being of others just as Head Start did for
Basic necessity such as food, basic education, security are few of many things that underprivileged children lack. As my speech continues, I would firstly, convince you on why underprivileged children need more help than ever. Secondly, I will show you how you can help them and why we cannot afford to not help Under-Privilege children need more help than ever. As the privileged children get an education, they can get a better job and prospect. However, the under-privileged children would struggle to fill their stomach, let alone talk about education.
What advice would you give a school in creating an exceptional intervention model that could fill those gaps? Within my local school system, I see a large amount of neglect. I see a system that allows students to be pushed through a grade without fully understanding the academics they were to be taught. I feel more intervention and less overlooking, would play well in having a successful graduate rate. It is not the number of students who graduate from the high school levels that matters in the student’s futures.
Individuality and Conformity in Education “Common sense to improve student achievement that too few have implemented: let teens sleep more, start school later[. ]”—Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. The disputes over schools’ demands for conformity have all been drawn-out for far too long with little change. The justification for this ongoing discussion is the belief that mass public schooling holds that students should be able to become unique and independent individuals while also promoting conformity in effort to socialize students. While both objectives are significant, they may come with a price.
The very nature of homeschooling makes it difficult to quantify student performance. However, the best available evidence is strongly positive about home-school student learning. The available evidence certainly seems to indicate otherwise.Harm to Public Education. Home schooling limits public school enrollments and therefore reduces the amounts of money state governments provide to local school districts. Which decreases the numbers of parents who are wanting to increase their children’s education (“Brookings”)
School principals and teachers care about school enrollment of students but fail to identify at-risk students and to work with their families (Bentzen, 1997). As a result, promoting parental involvement and community participation in children’s education in Myanmar falls behind the education system reform such as upgrading curriculum, teacher training and teaching methodology (Brooke & Patrick, 2013). Therefore, it is important to find ways to retain children and youth in school and promote their academic success through a sufficient balance of resources within individual, family, peer, school, and
