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
Lowered motivation creates low performance, which discourages the students even more. When there is no encouragement, the teenagers often don’t show up to school. The lack of effort correlates to teachers because it could dispirit them from doing work they want to assign in class. Changing to a four day school week can give additional benefits to all parties involved including students, teachers, and the school settings. If a four-day school week was implemented in American school districts, the performance plus achievement for students will increase along with a higher attendance.
Instead of investing 25 billion dollars to build a wall to keep people out the US should be investing that money into education so that kids can grow the economy and so America can actually become a country where the American dream can be achieved. In this modern era, you have to have money in order to go to a good college. Today there is a major plan to arm teachers with guns for protection. The US should be investing in education to keep children off the streets and actually teach so that kids can love school and become who they want to be. Everyone has an equal opportunity to get any job.
Well, one of the biggest advantages of the American school system is the great flexibility. Students are disciplined and they are willing to do their homework for hours. These attentions on the tests are really a big issue in the American education system, but by making the tests fewer importance students all over America will have the chance to succeed better in life no matter the social status the family might have. In addition, with so much focus on these tests and the preparation on the test schools are teaching the students how to do the tests rather than increasing their creativity. The United States has one traditional belief and value, which
They should be in school getting an education so that our world will have good leaders in the future and our people will be more knowledgeable about the world we live in. If the next generation is not educated, instead of the worlds problems being solved, they will only increase. If the places that the children worked had better conditions, shorter hours and a higher salary, my opinion might be different. The amount of money these children are making is not enough to help their family in the long run. It might buy them an extra cup of rice or help them pay the rent but it is not worth what they are going through everyday to earn the money.
Child poverty denies children with the basic needs to survive, expand, and flourish. It also deprives children from having equal opportunities in school such as a good education based on where they live, the proper teachers needed, and the motivation to not drop out. The lower-class students of this generation are being deprived of a quality education whereas the rest of society not only gets an outstanding education, but is able to participate in after-school activities that increases the student's social skills as well as helps them educationally. One significant factor that serves to exclude children living in poverty from their peers is the increasing rate of children falling behind in school due to the lack of help that they have access
How would it feel being able to attend a state college free of cost? Would the type of education be the same? I believe free college tuition should be provided and funded by the U.S. government because it will help students focus on their studies, and encourage them to work harder in school. Thus, many students, teachers, and people wonder if free college tuition should be granted. If free college tuition was given, students would have more time to educate themselves, plus be well rested instead of being tired from time consuming jobs.
Compared to how it was before, today there are actually laws that require all children, no matter how poor, to attend school even if they need government aid to do so. This is a monumental change from the 19th century and the early 20th century, where there were no such laws and an overwhelming number of children would miss out on an education due to their financial status. With this knowledge that is bestowed upon them, these children in low-income situations can work ambitiously and flourish by the time they graduate high school. Even if they don’t attend college, a high school diploma can help in finding a stable job, which can allow them to earn more money and move up a social class. A variation of this occurred in The Great Gatsby where Gatsby was taught the ways of business by his mentor Dan Cody, which enabled him to become wealthy later in
(Weller 3). This is a problem because it takes away quality family time from students, which is essential for their well-being. Thirdly, a second benefit is that the year-round schooling system helps solve the problem of overcrowding. (Zubrzycki 1). Since all students wouldn 't be in school all at the same time, it eliminates the overcrowding problem.
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
Both Tocqueville and President Obama saw education is important ways to eliminate barriers amongst the classes. Yet it appears to have become a barrier itself, namely through the institution of structural poverty. In his description of what has equalized the poor and rich classes, Tocqueville cites the diffusion of education across the United States. Equal access to people regardless of their income was instrumental in allowing the poor yet intelligent youth gain equal footing in regards to the work force. However, for many students today, this equal footing is nothing but a dream.
Blank and Berg cite words from Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner say that intelligence is different for everyone and that everyone has their own way to comprehend and benefit from their experiences. The authors of this article, also found that minority students living in poverty stricken areas were more likely to have trouble keeping up with the higher income families in the area which caused a gap in the attempt to strive for academic achievement. It was also found that the mother 's education was a key predictor of the child 's success and that families more involved in their child 's education were more likely to perform better(Blank and Berg). This lead to a problem though because nobody really had a plan on how to fix this problem. It also lacked a history of why this started to happen in schools around the nation.
Quite the contrary, all parents in the study wanted the best for their children; however, middle class families had availability to resources and knowledge that working class and poor parents simply could not provide. This was most apparent in chapter 13 as the author revisits the children and interviews them, post-high school graduation. Middle class children, who had the continual guidance of their parents, often went on to college. In contrast, lower income children relied on schools as their channel towards college; while for some this was effective, many of the children in the study failed to continue on to higher education. This was intensified with children in the lowest income bracket.
If schools were to dispose of the sports the students would greatly benefit mentally, the district’s profit margin would increase, and the establishment could use the money to improve the structure of the institute. Obviously, when students don 't have after school sports they become less stressed and have more time to study for tests which overall increases their grades. Therefore, schools need to cut sports to make sure that all of their students succeed so they 're prepared for the rough future that awaits
