A child growing up in poverty is exposed to some of the lowest aspects of life. Poverty has many factors, it can lead to low self esteem due to children from poverty stricken homes who are quick to notice that other children dress better than they do and they can become embarrassed which can cause them to withdraw themselves from classes which creates a bad learning environment. Secondly, in most cases when poverty is in the home, children find it very burdensome to participate in some activities that needs team work and binding with your peers, if there is a cost incurred. Thirdly, the under-privileged students may face condition in their homes, conditions that leaves them with less time and energy for studies. This problem can become serious if conditions are so bad that they dont get adequate nourishment.
School Funding- “CRT argues that inequality in school funding is a function of institutional and structural racism” (Ladson-Billings, 2004, p.20). The lack of funds becomes a systemic way to deprive students from gaining opportunities such as jobs. Desegregation- As professor Grant mentioned in class, desegregation still exists in the world specially in education because minority students are still poorly served in the education
Children are born with a low birth weight and there are high mortality rates, malnutrition and starvation. Poverty also affects learning and development in children which results in a continent full of illiterate people, resulting in them not being able to find employment and earn a decent income to meet their daily needs. Not earning a decent income also results in parents not being able to take their children to schools which creates what is called a “cycle of poverty”. Emotional
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
Rewarding students for good grades will decrease student’s self-motivation. Paying students for good grades will realize an actual decrease in academic performance. These distinct disadvantages highlight why schools should not pay students for good grades. First, paying students for good grades causes practical problems in the classroom. According to the National Education Association (NEA), “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” These pressures and conflicts can lead to larger problems outside of school.
In addition, they may not develop good social skills and are much more likely to suffer from depression, alcohol and drug addictions and identity difficulties and become juvenile delinquents. The most common reason why children are forced to work is because of poverty. According to Edmonds, E. and Pavnick, N. (2005), ILO’s Statistical Information and Monitoring Program on Child Labor, 211 million children or 18% of children from 5-14 years old are working, 60% of them live in Asia. Poor children and their families may rely upon child labor in order to improve their chances of attaining basic necessities. More than one-fourth of the world’s people live in extreme poverty, according to 2005 U.N statistics.
Many citizens may think that they know about child labour, but from new evidence, the truth is much darker than it seems. Clearly, there are several causes that lead to child labour. The most obvious cause is a shortage of money or lack of access to adequate resources. Due to poverty, some children are forced into work, while others work to improve their family’s living conditions. For a child’s income hugely contributes to the family’s total expenses.
A controversial topic of education, whether it is a right or a privilege, remains highly disputed till this day. Viewing education as a right sets many peoples’ perspectives astray from its original intention, helping children from poor families to attend school. The right of an education is often viewed as an obligation and not a need to compete in the world to survive. Moreover, as a right, education is frequently taken for granted. On the other hand, the privilege of an education creates a burdensome fee for many poor families, causing a rise of many illiterates.
Being at work constantly has impacted their school attendance, making them miss school on a frequent ba-sis. Certainly, this influences their academic performances and in the end can result in increased risk of dropping out of school. In particular, the risk of dropping out school also relates to income constraint within the household. The bigger number of working household members im-plies a larger shared income within the household that could reduce the proba-bility of dropping out school. Additional income collected from multiple fami-ly members could alleviate financial problems within the household.
