One reason that having year round school can affect families is by not having much time with them. Quality family time is important to the emotional and developmental well being of a child. Not having a summer break can make it difficult to schedule meaningful family time (Kalil). This analyzes that not having summer can affect relationships with families because they do not get to spend much time together for a long period of time. Another reason why year round school can affect families is if one kid goes to a different school that has year round school and the other goes to a normal school.
In order for kids in school to focus and succeed in school students need to understand why education is important and teachers understand why their students are misbehaving. In Ancient Egypt only rich families could afford schooling. Students need to understand that having the right mindset about things is the way to go even if you are not satisfied. In Ancient Egypt the problem was that almost all households could not afford to put their sons in school. Instead of school they would home school their kids.
Natacha Phebe Professor Angela Blewitt ENC 1102 20 February 2018 Poverty effects on parents who have children Parents who have children in poverty can be stressful. The U.S. Department of Education has studied that poor children are more likely to fall behind in grade school by the age of eighteen. Parents who are struggling not being able to provide the needs for their child are unlikely to be supportive. Parents who are depressed act more harsh towards their child than loving parents which will cause the child to be more depressed seeing how loved other children are towards their parents. “It is reported that women, children, and the elderly are overrepresented among those with housing problems”.
Hopefully, it would also lessen the number of low income neighborhoods. Instead more citizens could be financially stable and offer high quality schools for future students. “…we cannot allow our disadvantaged children to continue to be undereducated in poorly conceived, poorly staffed, and poorly governed underfunded public schools. It is morally wrong and economically unsound…” (Ikpa 470). Children don't deserve to suffer because of their parents income levels.
I do like the idea that it helps children receive a better education but as I said I do think it should only be for a selective few of children. I don’t like how it is pulling money away from local schools in ones residence and brining it into a new district. The article states
If the parent refuses to pay for child support tax refunds could be taken away and eyes could be placed against the property. Until the child accomplishes the majority age, both parents should pay for supporting their child with equality. Making dodgers of this system go to jail might help them recognize that they can not get away with not taking care of their child and it might prevent them from doing the same mistake in the future. According to Jefe Guo from The Washington Post, nearly one in four children are not yet paid some sort of child support; but only 62 percent of the money owed is actually
Kids not buying the lunches from the school means not as much money comes into our school. And not having the money from lunches means the school would not make as much money. So we would not have money for the school to supply us with the school supplies we need, like wood pencils, loose leaf paper, and other supplies like glue sticks. If you want kids to be healthier, the easiest thing to do would to be to give the kids more time to be active. The biggest thing you could do to make kids healthier is provide more time for activities.
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
He insisted that they need to work for political and social change to lift people out of poverty, but the ways to support the families can [also] be part of the picture. Limitations of the study include the fact that parenting and socioeconomic circumstances were only assessed at one time point and also there are not data on brain development and other factors with regards to [the] adolescence that could influence the result. The study also doesn’t prove that poverty can cause differences to the brain development seen among teens or any changes that can be seen over time in an individual children. According to Jamie Hanson of the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, and who has not involved in the study, the relationship between the environment and biology continues the conversation about the increased risks that is associated with low socioeconomic status, such as poor mental health, physical health, school readiness, academic success, high school completion, and job
Children from disadvantaged families usually do not have the same opportunities as those children from wealthier families to receive quality education; and public funding never fully levels the playing field since rich families are able to invest more in their children’s education by buying into neighbourhoods with better schools or better extracurricular activities (Adomait & Maranta, 2012, p. 114). Because of the less fortunate children’s minimal education, they will find badly paid jobs and earn less as adults. As badly educated citizens, they will not have much power in the political process, and will not be able to influence spending decisions to improve public schools for their children. Therefore, governments must seek to broaden the opportunities of those citizens who are disadvantaged. According to the aforementioned publication by Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the realisation of an efficiency and equity trade-off in education could be obtained through several ways.
The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students correlates with EISD’s low scores because it can be assumed that high school students below the poverty line must have some form of work or job after school, preventing them from being able to complete homework and study on a daily basis. This also inhibits their success on standardized tests and college readiness simply because they might not have the time to practice concepts or ask questions to understand testing material. Another key issue with economically disadvantaged students is the lack of parental support and guidance on the significance of studying at home. Many of the parents of economically disadvantaged kids did not obtain a higher level of education, which may impact their ability to help their kids, and worse, their ability to pass on the motivation needed for their kids to succeed in school. In addition, they could also be
According to Katherine Magnuson and Elizabeth Votruba-Drzal, “poor children are one-third less likely to complete high school than those children not living in poor areas” (33). Children living in poverty does not only possess lack of education because they can’t pay for the education but due to lack of parental involvement and high risk of getting involved in crimes as a result dropping out of school. When a child does not get diploma or degree they don’t have the opportunity to get a good paying job as a result they will live in poverty for their whole
According to the survey, poor children regularly have access to these resources to help them learn. The issue with the government 's survey is the researchers only looked at individuals who are privileged rather than individuals who are living poor. It makes it unclear to figure out whether poverty affects children development or Americans defining poverty wrong this whole time. From experiences, I can say that poverty can influence your performance and ability to progress normally. I experienced not being able to attend school, missing meals, not having electricity to complete homework, and not getting enough rest it not only delayed my development but my ability to gain knowledge just like an average child.
As interest increases and the court wants more money it becomes an unreachable goal for a single parent. I believe child support is a lost cause, necessary, but lost. The government is willing to give out money to those in need, but they should not be expecting that full amount back in return. If the government doesn’t help these families, no one will. Some fortunate parents with well paying jobs can surprise the government, but most parents fall far below that portion of the
African Americans are allowed to have an education, but in some areas they do not get the proper education they need. According to Lindsey Cook, blacks are at a different starting line than whites (Cook, 2015). Black parents, most of whom are less educated than their white counterparts, do not expect their children to attain as much education as white parents (Cook, 2015). Black children seem to get less education than white children when they are younger. 91 percent of white children aged 3 to 5 who were enrolled in kindergarten were read to by family members three or more times per week, 78 percent were read to with the same frequency (Cook, 2015).
