Only focusing on math, reading, and writing will not help students in their future lives, yes they are helpful things to have a knowledge of, but they are not the only things students need to have knowledge of in order to succeed. Also Teaching students to be good test takers does not help them to be prepared for adult life. ("Standardized Tests - ProCon.org." ProConorg Headlines. N.p., n.d.
They do not have any special needs training and are not seriously prepared to instruct the special needs students that are mainstreamed into their classrooms. Most of the schools do not have physical infrastructure and aids for special needs students in developing counties. Without essential resources, it would be difficult to instruct special needs and mainstream students together even though the teachers are well trained. Another important aspect in developing countries due to which inclusive education is not successfully implemented is cultural attitude. Many people think that disabled people are cursed and should be avoided.
However if a teacher is uninformed about the problem at hand, it becomes difficult to advance the policy of equal educational rights. The purpose of this study is to find out how many teachers in Kenya are completely unaware about dyslexia and how many have limited understanding, yet are unable to help they dyslexic children. 1.4 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY This study aims to: 1. Find out how many teachers in Kenya are aware of what dyslexia is 2. Asses the number of teachers in Kenya who are aware of dyslexia and are still incapable and lack experience with helping dyslexic learners.
This greatly limits their access to opportunities and general knowledge of the education system. Southeast Asian parents who are not able to fully communicate in English may miss important information that would be beneficial for their students’ success. These parents are unable to successfully navigate the American school systems, and they often feel unwelcome in the school setting due to cultural boundaries. This and their limited English abilities often restrict their communication with teachers and other school officials that would otherwise help their children succeed. Some parents may also have no higher education, or have had any formal education at all.
The children were discovered after one of the siblings escaped and contacted police. Safety is not the only thing that has people questioning this method of education. Since not all states monitor homeschoolers curriculum, there is concern that they are not educated as well as public schoolers and do not acquire all the skills they need to. In addition to education, there is also the uncertainty that homeschoolers social skills are not developed, and they do not know how to interact with their peers. In reaction to the Turpins, Sarah Jones, a writer for the New Republic, recently published an article asserting it is the “lax homeschooling laws,” which she claims “protect child abusers” fault for the abuse of the Turpin children and any other abuse done in homeschool families.
In other words, the education unfortunately does not motivate students to learn. It is certainly disastrous if this situation occurs all the time. Numerous people will not take education, which essentially can support them to improve their life and develop the world,
They may say it is a waste of time, or, what if someone gets hurt. For instance, how will districts pay for insurance if a child gets hurt. Or maybe, kids need more study time to focus on their tests. Those are convincing arguments, but recess is not a waste of time. "There is absolutely no theory or empirical evidence to support this point of view," says Anthony Pellegrini, a former professor of educational psychology at the University of Minnesota.
It is believed that school plays an indespensible role in children's cognitive development. However,we can not deny the unfortunate fact that current educational system does not come up to their expectation of intellectual, physical and psychological value. Ideas was widely disseminated that formal schooling has existed many drawbacks because it results in serious psychological , physical damage to children as well as does not enable them to expand extensive, insightful, intellectual knowledge and achieve valuable skills entirely. Firstly , formal schooling does not serve a significant purpose itself by nature in motivating children to own themselves effectively to some certain extent. Children come into the world beautifully-designed to direct their own education.
But in practical situation they may be deprived of it. The teacher may have the concept that there is no any use of teaching English language to such children. Even if such children are kept in inclusive school they feel marginalized. Marginalized in the sense that both, hearing and hearing impaired, children are being taught the same mainstream curriculum. However, the hearing impaired children may feel some comfort in such context because they may learn something through speech read but the hearing children may feel humiliated because the instruction techniques do not match to each other.
But, given industry needs, Minimum Learning Levels (MLL) reduces policy ambitions to provide just so much rather than strive towards a holistic education. It is in this context that the emphasis away from school environment and infrastructure and towards low qualified untrained contractual teachers has come from. However, no pre-service training is required for contract teachers, leading to a compromise in the provision of quality education. Many of these contract teachers are also not as qualified as regular teachers. There is little evidence to show that such a contractual teacher can create the environment and learning impetus in the difficult classroom situations of rural India, that a regular teacher cannot.
