According to the experience of my parents and older relatives, they had a clear distinction between the word public and private universities. They always studied in the public universities since these universities were affordable and they were supposed to be funded by the government. If we compare the concept of public and private universities of both the era we can find a huge difference between these two concepts now. Now a days public universities are charging same as the private universities. Education is not even affordable by most of the citizens of America since their yearly income is nearly equal to a semester fee of a university.
Donors are donating money to charter schools, and those donors are linked to the government through political campaigns. All this money for charter schools is unfair to public schools, as they usually have more kids than charter schools thus they need more money. Public schools also have more teachers than charter schools, but they receive less money than charter school teachers because all the government funding is going towards charter
Basing school funding on property tax leads to unequal opportunities and environments for students, even though the government may claim it is not up to them, there needs to be a drastic change. Currently, taxes collected from the surrounding communities fund public school districts. Public schools get financed mainly by the property tax of the surrounding houses. “Resources available to school districts relied heavily on local property wealth, and property wealth per pupil varied greatly, as it continues today” (Ikpa 469). The current system may be beneficial in high income neighborhoods where the tax rates are higher, but it is insufficient in low income neighborhoods.
In example an issue brought up a lot is education. Obviously the wealthy will have their children in well-developed schools and the lower classes will have their children at mediocre public schools. The curriculum may be the same but the discipline in classes are highly different. For example, a child from a low income family is usually brought up in less developed communities where their parents may not have an education that excels over the 12th grade. So school may not seem as big of a deal to them.
On the other hand, Donald Trump wants to hire better teachers and schools and have education be a local. If education were to become local, whichever city the school is located in would have to pay for anything the school needs (teachers, textbooks, lunches, art programs, etc). In some cases, this idea would benefit people who live in wealthy cities that can afford prestigious teachers and have the funds to give their school resources. In cities that don 't have much money, it’s almost impossible to hire the best teachers and give their children the proper resources because of their lack of funds. Sanders wants to make education affordable for everyone and give equal opportunities to all
These community colleges could then become part of the public school system, with government funding, so that all may have access to at least a two year college degree. This education revolution would not put so much pressure onto graduating seniors to attend an expensive four year university. Therefore, this movement would both lower the cost of college and allow more people from low income homes to acquire an education. The implementation of more community colleges across the nation with low or free tuition could slowly undo the issues created by the high rates of today’s college tuition by lowering college
Colleges have a very hard time lowering their tuition when they have so much they will provide for the students attending. Of course a smaller college with less to offer will be much cheaper than a college where they provide on campus housing, medical care and the opportunity to take advantage of all the resources that they provide for their students. Many schools today have a wide variety of resources that can be taken advantage of that many people don’t appreciate. Yes, college has definitely become very expensive but considering all the things they provide, it is necessary for them to be so
And there is one more problem, according to me, is that they should also spend money on the government schools in the rural areas because there is a lot of poverty still in India and not many people can afford to send their children to private schools. But then there is also issue of money. There are a lot of issues related to money. But for a better future of the children of their countries they government needs to be more generous and pay a big amount from their GPD for
Education is one of the most significant parts of success, yet many Americans are living in poverty because they were never able to receive an education that would allow them be successful members of our society. America has the technology and financial resources to give all of its citizens an exceptional education, but lower class citizens often fall through the cracks of the education system. From a very early age, poor children learn what social class they belong to based on their experiences with educational inequality. Felice Yeskel, a writer who examined the impact that education has on social class, stated that “Educational inequality starts early in life, beginning with uneven access to high-quality, center-based early childcare. It
We must improve on our previous generations to make the world a better place to live in. The United States must rehaul the out of date education system to compete with other top nations to give children an opportunity to education with equal funding so they can learn to the best of their ability. Bruce Biddle a well known doctor with over 30 years of experience explains throughout his article that in the United states, we are the only advanced nation to fund our education with local property taxes. Considering the size of our country, this is sad to see the proportion of taxes that go to our education compared to other countries. The United States lacks knowledge on the
This is not fair, even though the government will try to spend money equally it does not always end up being impartial. This unfairness is presented at an elementary and a secondary school level. When it comes to the secondary school level, there are many private institutions that provide easier education than public schools simply because you are
This passage is important, as it underlines a point that Bruni makes throughout the entire book: top class schools cater mainly to the top socioeconomic class. This prevents these schools from providing both socioeconomic and ethnic diversity. Bruni wants the reader to examine the experience at highly ranked schools and decide whether that is something worth chasing after and worrying about. Finally, this passage also employs ethical appeal by referencing the American dream: social mobility. Public universities like ASU allow a vast majority of people in and as a result provide a greater opportunity for poorer students to receive educations for life.
Public school funding in America comes from federal, States and local sources, however the majority of those fund comes from local sources, meanly property taxes. The American system creates enormous funding differences between rich and poor community. Richer communities not only have larger property tax bases, but many have higher tax rates. Compare to poor communities with low property taxes bases and low tax rates. When the location and property value influence the allocation of the school fund, it is clear that students living in neighborhoods with least property values will be denied access to the quality of education offered to students living in communities with greater property values.
The problem of income inequality is not something new, but it is something that people must worry about because it is affecting not only our wallets, but our communities as a whole. I agree on the author’s point of view about income inequality in the United States his position is very similar to another Robert Reich documentary called “Inequality for all” where he mentions all the aspects that brought United States economic system to a hold just to help a fraction of all population one of those systems was education where before the nineteen eighties it was cheaper to go to college than nowadays or the fact that workers were pay almost the same as any other for their sacrifice . Going back to the video on debate he mentions how policies changed
The American public school system is arguably weak when compared to other countries, but it still functions to educate the public. The issue of inequality arises when it comes to higher education and who has access to it. Due to higher education costing anywhere from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars in the United States, it is easy to see why there is an unequal level of access to higher education. Some might argue that higher education is not necessary and that the poor can find a living without it. This is not only restricting the poor to the lower class, but is simply not true.
