“The first reason I learned as a homeschool teacher is that .. it’s the students that lead the way.” (Patti Armstrong, n.d). Homeschoolers are getting higher grades than public schools student. Moreover, the united states is offering new features that help homeschoolers to learn more in an easiest way. Also, families tend to get their kids in homeschooling education to have more plenty time. There are several reasons to give students a homeschooling education, students will focus more on the lessons, having more chances to practice on exams, also they will have plenty of time to spend with parents, and feel the responsible of importance of education.
Parental education is also an important aspect of the socioeconomic status because it is expected that parental and students’ education is strongly correlated. Highly educated parents are more likely to instill more positive values about education to their children” and they have a better understanding of what “institutions require and are probably better equipped to help and motivate their children in their objectives. The occupational dimension of socio-economic status is based upon the assumption that occupations can be placed along a finely graded socio-economic hierarchy. Occupational component of SES includes the level of income and educational attainment of the parents. Occupational status reflects the educational attainment required to obtain a particular job and income levels that vary with different jobs and within different ranks of occupations.
Being able to attend school means they’ll have better job opportunities, thus, making their well-being much better. But, do schools really instil knowledge in students or do they somehow limit acquisition of knowledge? The reward and punishment system with is known as the operant conditioning highlights most of the actions of people. “Positive reinforcement strengthens a behavior by providing a consequence an individual finds rewarding while negative reinforcement, which is a removal of stimulus, strengthens behavior by stopping or removing unpleasant experiences.” (McLeod, 2015) And this concept would be then applied to schools. An educated person has more chances of getting good jobs, paying enough salary, thus giving enough money to provide for his/her needs.
Think of all of the possibilities that these children could have created for the world with the right education. The United States has to invest in the youth. Keep the chain going to better the standard of life. That 's what the future is all about. We must improve on our previous generations to make the world a better place to live in.
INTRODUCTION “Heck (2013) defines effective schools by saying it should provide stable and consistent results over time that apply to all students within the school... Underlying the notion of school accountability is the belief that school personnel should be held responsible for improving student learning.” Society continues to change and so does the notion of what may be effective in schools. What we may think was effective before may not necessarily be effective now. We try to understand what works best as schools restructure and transform. This paper aims to critically discuss two mainstream thoughts in education that are crucial for improving or maintaining effectiveness at schools.
The process of wealth concentration arguably makes economic inequality a vicious cycle. The effects of wealth concentration may extend to future generations. Children born in a rich family have an economic advantage, because of wealth inherited and possibly education, which may increase their chances of earning a higher income than their peers. These advantages create another round of the vicious
Education gives people crucial skills and tools to sustain yourself and your family. Education leads to the school and school includes two options; public education or homeschooling. I consider homeschooling as a preferable option because there are more positive aspects to it than there are negative. Plus, the reason homeschooling has increased in the United States is because people want an education in a way better than the conventional way. Which is why the approximate percentage of homeschooling
Children Getting Paid Children are the future of our society, they are what we trust in leading us from now on. So why are we not teaching them real world values during schools? Kids should be paid for good grades and attendance with money. This would help poor kids with their home lives , this would motivate kids and schools as a whole to do better, it would even give kids real world experiences with money. Children should be paid for going to school and getting good grades.
Citizens of America should look at the different schools and the funding they receive compared to the environment the students live in. One may realize that the educational system is not right, giving one school more money because of the location. Once people realize this they can write to the government or even protest my pulling their kids out of the school to show how providing one school more money is going to give the students at the poorer school a smaller chance at being successful, meaning those students may not get a job to support a family or just them. Making the funding equal would make America better as a whole because more students will go to college, receive degrees, and get better
For example, “the emphasis on education in today’s society makes it much harder for people with low levels of education to develop a positive social identity.” (’The Wellbeing Effect of Education’). Without an education, people find it harder to find a good fit for them in society. However, “education can help with obtaining access to stable social relationships, like marriage, which can increase social support.” (Ross and Willigen). Those with education find it easier to succeed in their social relationships, therefore increasing their social stability in life. In addition to that, “Education is often used by people to shape their ’social identity’, framing their understanding of themselves and their relationships with other people.” (’The Wellbeing Effect of Education’).
People with an education have a larger income, have a better chance of earning the respect of fellow citizens, and are more likely to get jobs. Knowledge is power, and many young people living in the Projects are intelligent and full of submerged potential, but they live in a place where it is an achievement just to graduate from high school. They have lost the hope that was alive and thriving during the life of their grandparents, when Martin Luther King was a beacon of hope. The children in the projects might have low expectations for their future, but holding on to hope and fierce determination is the only way they will leave their lives of poverty. Martin Luther King, Jr., emphasized, "I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream" (King Jr.).
The article “Demand for pre-k is increasing, supply must catch up” mentioned a study in which children who attended pre-kindergarten were shown to be “more likely to graduate from high school, attend college and succeed in the workplace than their peers that did not attend”. As this study is showing that by attending prekindergarten children were more likely to succeed, the demand for pre-kindergarten classes is going to increase, this is due to the fact that people would value the program more and therefore would be willing to give up more to have their children attend. The article “Demand for pre-k is increasing, supply must catch up” was a good article to analyze from an economic standpoint, especially looking at a strictly supply and demand perspective as it incorporated many strong examples of both quantity of supply and demand and demand itself. Through the use of Cocktail Party Economics it was easy to pick apart and analyze each of these components of in a greater economic standpoint in relation to the article that I
The Common Core Standards prepare students for a competitive global economy. You might think of the word "common" as describing shared success we 'd like students to have. If you take under performing schools and less-demanding curricula in some states and raise them to a level where they compare to higher-performing schools in states with more demanding curriculum, you give students a "common" experience. For the disadvantaged, this is a good thing. But for those parents who are happy with the education
Education allows you to think for yourself and communicate with others. One must excel in education to be successful in their overall life. The time invested in our children by the American school systems and their parents will have long lasting effects on the future of our population and the world as a
Income inequality is a global issue that need to be addressed and is a threat to the individuals or household with low income. In today’s world the rich are becoming rich while the poor are deteriorating and going below the poverty line. To me, imposing high income taxes would not bring an immediate solution only that, it accelerates the burden. Because the higher the tax rate, the higher the rate of poverty subjected to the low income individuals. Due to that, the government should provide quality education to the citizens so that they become self-reliant in the future and experience high living standards.
