Sean Budomo Mrs. Shippen Language Arts The current education system in the United States has many problems and is extremely flawed. The education system 's faults include the lack of quality teachers in many schools that do not care and do not get paid back the amount of effort they put in, government support in the wrong areas, uses of standardized testing, and the lack of parent involvement which creates negative student behaviors and attitudes in a child 's school life are some problems of US education. Common core is a problem, it has created a national defective standard curriculum and only slightly raised the rank of the United States in education compared to other countries, but still could not fix other problems from the
Her tone is dependent on her audience. Miller’s audience consists of children and their parents. Since half of her audience are children she speaks with a respectful tone and her word choices plays a part in her tone as well. Throughout the article, Miller considers her audience frequently. For example, she claims that educated parents fight for their kids in high school and they know what privileges to fight for.
Also, parents without university degrees may feel in some ways inferior to teachers whom they know are better qualified than them and therefore be reluctant to work closely with teachers. Situations in family unit can be key obstacles to parental involvement. In line with this, Sanders (2008) notes that participation and involvement of parents may be hindered by psychological barriers. For instance, solo parents and those with young families or large families may discover it more complicated to get involved in parental involvement because of
Lareau’s concept of division of responsibilities illustrates the reasons why middle-class children do than working class children. As Lareau argues, the division of responsibilities occurs between teachers and parents, meaning teachers focus on education and parents focus on home activities. In working class families, the common approach to education comes in the form of separation between family and school, meaning school life and home life are threated as two separate entities. Likewise, Lareau presented her argument in terms of parental criticisms. In working class families, parents feel intimidated at school because they do not possess needed information about schools.
The effect on this is that kids will either want to come to school. Another reason is because students will be nervous for school everyday. That why students should not wear uniform. In conclusion uniforms is a bad idea. Another reason students should not wear uniform is because students parents might struggle for paying for uniform and and the kids might feel uncomfortable wearing uniform.
First, in child beauty contest, beauty is important thing, so usually, mothers have strong rights to speak about it. On the other hand, in entrance exam, mostly both parents say their opinion to children. Second, most children do not have to, and also, although they want to, it is very difficult to attend child beauty contest. So almost every child live without thinking about beauty contest. On the other hand, many children have to have entrance exam, and most children have to study whether they have entrance exam or not.
Nevertheless, their low performance and bad grades show there is a problem. Unfortunately, especially in the English class, bad results are becoming commoner. It is said that lack of motivation in language learning is the main cause for students’ low proficiency levels. Some people claim it is due to external factors, and consequently is teachers’ responsibility. While others say this problem must be internal, regarding students’ role.
As a result they subvert the schools culture to gain access to a higher status. Some also argue that anti-school subcultures are used as a coping strategy for the constraints placed on the different group. These different processes result in individuals being disruptive and challenging due to the subverted culture, which leads to them being excluded from the institution, creating inequalities within class. Teacher expectations within educational institutions can also impact social groups achievement. Becker talks about the ideal students.
Miller (2010) conjectured that children who grow up under authoritarian parenting styles often experience long term emotional consequences. They tend to have poor social skills, low self-esteem, anger and higher rates of depression and anxiety. It is due to independence is discouraged; children are taught to follow rules rather than taking initiatives. They are not taught how to think. This lack of independence, both emotional and physical, can eventually result in low self-esteem.
On one hand, you had people who loved the idea of their kids having to go to school for a set number of years and the state providing it. On the other hand, there were and still are many who are oppose to it. They claim that making kids go to school for a certain portion of their lives is unconstitutional. In the end, though, there are multiple laws in place that set the guidelines for the attendance of people in school. Although there are many people who feel they should decide whether their kid gets an education I believe it is important for students to attend school-whether or not they feel they will sue the information it will give them the skills to grow as a person
Each student has different Funds of Knowledge, and teachers have to realize that. Students come from many different backgrounds and home lives, and sometimes a teacher might be the only trusted adult someone has. I have a very strong relationship with my parents, but that did not change that fact that I needed more than just their help with my depression. Students are at school for eight hours a day, not including extra curricular activities. For many students that is more time then they will spend with their family in one day.
On the other hand, the Concerned Mother claimed “I...was present on campus nearly every day because I believed kids are more successful when their parents are heavily involved in their lives.” (1). Evidently, not all parents come to help the teacher. In conclusion, I disagree with the concerned mother’s opinion because because it is intrusive to classrooms. Parent involvement prevents students from acquiring the ability to deal with their mistakes. Last, some parents come to help the teacher, but a majority of parent “volunteers”
Many issues, such as poverty, unemployment, domestic violence and other variations of it, high crime rates, drug abuse, and pollution, could be eliminated if our education system was to be enhanced. Unfortunately, the system has failed to maintain relevant and engaging, that it has become disorganized and counterproductive. I’m sure most people can agree that schoolwork consists of a lot of filler tasks and has failed to inform the significance and opportunities that the lesson contains. The school has become heavily infatuated with testing and test scores beyond any reasonable measure; shouldn’t schools be about on actual education and not testing? There also seems to be a lack of essential Home Economic classes, classes that should teach students how to be a responsible adults by teaching them how to sew, their basic human rights, not only how to use a condom but what to do when they want a child (how to parent), how to care of their own health and others’, politics, financial advice, and basic first aid.
The only reason people wouldn’t agree would be because they want to spend time with their children, but they will still be able to because year round schooling gives short bursts of breaks about two weeks every other month(Towler). Finally, Year-Round Schooling would be a great idea to interpret and merge into our school . so that we can not just learn more but not be stressed out and forget what we learned the previous year. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education but, also so they may go to work and feed their families. This method of teaching is something that I have experienced when I was a child and I enjoyed learning while taking one week break about every
They do not agree that they have a responsibility to go over homework or assist their children at home. If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities.
