The model is supposed to bring renewed prosperity to the United States but it brought more inequality and stripped safety net programs that actually helped most Americans. This lack of assistance means that struggling people are struggling even more and they have less money to spend and to put back into the economy. Since the creation of the Better Business Climate model, government spending on food stamps, unemployment insurance, and other social programs has been cut as
We need to take matters into our own hands and put cursive writing back into public schools before the rest of our world becomes a total wreck. Meaning that children will get so wrapped up into the technology world they won’t ever know what a piece of cursive writing is or even looks like. And many parents wouldn’t want that for their children. We need to put cursive handwriting back into public schools so students nationwide can learn how to read and write cursive to become successful, and responsible young adults. Students today would get a paper of some sort and they would have to sign their name, now most students would raise their hand and ask “what does this mean?” I know I did once.
There are plenty of problems in public education in the United States. There has been much discussion about the new “21st century” skills, standards, and requirements that teachers should be teaching their students that they almost get lost in what the main goal is-to teach students. Today, it seems the number one goal is to get students ready for college, when in reality, that may not be what the majority of our young learners really need to be focusing on, or it may not be their end goal. There is such a demand for higher-level thinking and differentiated skills, which only puts more pressure on teachers to get their students to pass the standardized tests that the government is requiring. School districts are threatening teachers that if
However, in the long run, many employers will not be able to maintain to stay in business due to the significantly high wages. An increase in minimum wage would cause millions to lose their jobs and put them further in poverty. It would even make it harder for them to obtain jobs after the increase due to the increase of competition in the job market, and most importantly an increase in minimum wage would cause increase in the price level and it will reduce significantly consumption due to the lack of purchasing power that is cause by the higher inflation rate. The minimum wage should not increase because it is unsustainable economically. Another approach of help guide people out of poverty can be a push for an increase in education and knowledge capital instead of continuously increasing the minimum
In addition, education modernization is for cultural reasons. At this point, people were trying to keep their cultural identity while still being involved in"the process of globalization. "According to Robinson, the dropout rates of schoolchildren are increasing substantially.The schools are more interested in the arts and dwindling; the school system find means to alienate millions of kids who do not see any purpose in going to school. Robinson related this to the increase in the cases of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The modern epidemic in America was to give improper medications to students because students could not focus on boring school lectures that do not attempt to occupy them.
With English as the official language of the United States, citizens would experience societal and economic benefits. Learning English will help more people understand and help the government and business industries. With one unified nation, prosperity and community between cultures would grow. All of which would lead to a more outstanding and organized
Recent findings have suggested that schoolchildren in the 1960s and 1970s are more literate than children of today as they didn’t have the same access to technology and spelling correction tools like children today do. It is evident that text messaging is alienating English speakers from their native tongue and natives who wish to learn the language as there are so many new words to be learnt due more abbreviations or slang words being constantly added. Many teachers are intolerant to these slangs and abbreviations which the students prefer as the teachers believe that their students cannot express themselves eloquently. Yet, a study by Sali Tagliamonte shows that students who utilize both informal and formal writing in different contexts are developing a kind of blending of conversational registers employed by teens which not be possible without a sophisticated understanding of both languages. Also, many new abbreviations such ICYMI for in case you missed it or TL/DR for too long didn’t read are consistently being added, wasting more time on searching up what they mean rather than actually using them in conversations.
In this world knowing a language is like knowing baby steps, you need to know more than what you already know, because “flexibility is something that requires work if it is to be maintained” (speaking in tongues). You need to able to change and be able to be on top of your game for the new jobs on the market. Third world countries such as Sudan are teaching their kids English as their second language, so when they grow up they can be with the norm with these dominant countries. English is now, “the official language of 57 foreign countries” (Facebook rant). More and more countries are now changing their ways to theses dominant countries with power and jobs that people need, and this is playing in favor of those countries.
Vargas objected to the anti-immigrant stereotype “they don’t want to assimilate, they are a drain on society” by saying “We’re not always who you think we are.”(378) To eliminate this prejudice, he made up his mind to contribute, to work hard, to achieve professional success. The similar situation was confronted by Darznik’s mother: “One word out of her mouth and Americans would stare her down, hard and long.”(140) The pride and shame inspire Darznik to learn English, to show how well she can speak, even better than Americans. As we often meet people from different communities, about whom we have very little knowledge, it is easy to take the short cut and use stereotypes. We usually divide people into groups and think they have similar characteristics. For example, dating back to the 20th century, when people thought of the colored, they had a degenerating sense of “nobodiness”.
Everyday people are mislead and taken advantage of because of poor literacy skills. It is crucial that classrooms terminate the problem early on, not perpetuate it. The deadliest disadvantage is poor literacy skills or just being completely illiterate. According to Messemer, “Literacy has lifelong impacts on educational achievement, employment and earning power, health, and other areas” (Messemer). If it is known that literacy has a large impact on all students, and many students are falling behind in this area, why isn’t there a sense of urgency to fix the problem.
