According to the Bureau of Legislative Research (2010), students who qualify as English Language Learners (those with limited English skills) earn the school an additional amount of money as well. For the 2008-09 school year, Arkansas districts spent $12.5 million on ELL students according to this same research conducted. According to Oleaga (2014), there were over fifty-five thousand undocumented children unaccompanied by a parent or guardian who were apprehended from late 2013 to mid-2014. This means that more children who have limited English skills are continuing to enter the country. Cultural Influence Students who have a different background are a benefit to any classroom.

Whenever the social workers would come to visit the children, I would always ask questions about their job and what it’s like to be able to help people.
In The Arc, I also found that levels of restraint and seclusion has recently added up since previous years, having reported “harmful use of these interventions in over two-thirds of the states, involving children as young as three years old in both public and private school settings”. Lastly, transition was one of the many issues special education children face in schools today. As these children continue to age, transition planning and resources for students continue to worsen. This has parents wondering where they can send their special needs child to transition from school systems to a mature lifestyle. In The Arc, it is reported that “Every year between 150,000-200,000 students with disabilities age out of special education (in most states) at age 22”.

I would love to be a part of this prestigious organization, and I am honored for the consideration. One of the many reasons I would like to be accepted is because I have always had a passion to serve the community.

This opportunity has taught me about leadership and the need for role models in our community; particularly as it relates to children of a young age.
