As Charles Wheeler of the National Immigration Law Center asserts, "There is no evidence that access to federal programs acts as a magnet to foreigners or that further restrictions would discourage illegal immigrants" (qtd. in "Exploiting"). The other concerns are more legitimate, but they can be addressed by less drastic measures than barring children from schools. Currently the responsibility o... ... middle of paper ... ...re in school, we can make sure they are inoculated properly, and we can teach them the facts about health and disease. Do we really want thousands of uneducated children growing up on the streets, where we have little control over them?
Essentially, college education is necessary, but not all people should attain a bachelor’s degree as there are alternative routes through which to gain experience in tune with market demands. The cost of college education is one of the deterrents to attaining degrees, and the likely increase in cost over time will lead to higher dropout rates. The value placed on a bachelor’s degree is misplaced because it is no guarantee of success in life. Thus, attaining experience complimented with vocational training should also be on the agenda in educational reforms because not all people can fit in the college systems.
A big gap exists between stereotypical "poor" schools and "rich" schools. Millions of Americans do not enjoy the option of enrolling children in schools where better teachers and materials are affordable. They are forced to remain with whatever the district can provide. Usually these children are not of lower intelligence, they just do not have the opportunities to learn educational necessities. Most parents want to place posterity in institutions where they will obtain a better education, but lack the means to do so.
Income greatly impacts a child’s learning ability. In the United States, where a child attends school is based on where he or she lives, which is based upon the income of the family. Typically, families with lower income must send their children to poor quality schools. Schools in low income areas are more likely to have unsatisfactory teachers, or teachers with little experience because of the salary the school can offer. Even though many forms of financial aid are accessible to low income students wanting to attend college, there is no such acclaim available to low income families who would prefer to live in a higher quality school system (Rouse/Barrow, 1-2).
“The plight of stateless children has not drawn the interest of many academics, human-rights activists, or policy makers” (Bhabha, 2011, p. 43). But this issue actually is very important because it engage on the societal well-being. The stateless children are lack of education, healthcare, protection and other basic needs. It is hard for them to access for needs such as education and healthcare because they lack of official identification document (Sadiq, 2008). This is not supposed to happen because the children needs and rights must be protected.
Dedication. Patriotism. The preceding words represent qualities many of today’s American students lack. Many US citizens question the reason behind this decline of morality within the educational system. Parents blame the teachers; teachers claim the students are unable to be taught and parents aren’t attempting to assist teachers in their quest to disperse their knowledge.
If students do not show growth or show proficiency this may affect their teachers’ pay or even their jobs. Schools may be unable to receive proper funding if their test scores do not show growth, which could cause a school to become less functional than they already are. There are many problems with the way that standardized testing is implemented in our public school system as stated above. A total of more than 525 public schools in the state of Texas have signed a national resolution that calls for an end to the overemphasis to standardized testing. (Parents for Public Schools Inc.) “The resolution states that the over-emphasis on standardized testing has ‘caused considerable collateral damage in too many schools, including narrowing the curriculum, teaching to the test, reducing love of learning, pushing students out of school, driving excellent teachers out of the profession and undermining school climate.’” (Parents for Public Schools Inc.) This resolution also called for a reform that creates a new system based on multiple ways of assessing student growth and knowledge.
Without proper funding of education, the youth of today will be hard pressed to find success. To help with the limited funds produced by the government, multiple organizations assist schools with the much needed funds. The Great Recession triggered the cutbacks in school funding. The government did not want to lay off a bevy of teachers, so it provided a mass of funds to help temporarily. The government made this situation an even bigger dilemma by briefly giving funds to the schools in need.
Higher education is more valuable that people prioritize it to be. It is unfair to have kids debase themselves all for not being financially strong. There are kids out there that are academically acceptable to colleges but are not financially acceptable for them. So then you have colleges emphasizing financial aid but what good does a small amount of assistance do for a whole lot of tuition? When will financial aid be more of a benefit for low income students rather than just a chump of
Some people go to further their education right when they get their high school diplomas. People already have jobs that do not require a college degree while others just do not have the money to go to college. Although college is extremely important, those are reasons people find it unnecessary to go to college. Even though it is expensive in America, college is still very necessary. Works Cited Blad, Evie.
