When it comes to drop outs, those students do not seem to realize how close they truly are to success, high school is such a small part of a person’s life and some of those people have problems completing their education. Even though there is not enough funds to make sure all students can complete their high school careers, I believe the amount of high school students dropping out is getting too high because education is a large part of our civilization, you need to have a certain knowledge base in order to get by and students need education in order to get further in their life goals. If we created more opportunities, used a high amount of the state money towards education, there would be a higher completion rate of high school graduates. There are not enough funds to make sure all the students can complete their high school careers. In the year 2008 the economic collapse there was a $469 million cut.
The money going towards supporting dropouts is a large miss use, seeing as dropouts could have potentially continued school. Students ending education early on and relying on government support will continue to take the economy into an unstable downturn. An area where not only does the government lose money, but dropouts as well is when states record the number of dropouts from schools. Reporting dropout rates is a major issue in states such as California, Texas and Illinois. The numbers of dropouts decreasing does not match up... ... middle of paper ... ... and government programs to support themselves.
Whatever the advantages of education for young people, many are not attending school on a regular basis. Many studies have been done that confirm that there is a vast difference in academic performance between children from high and low-income communities. Education is necessary but education alone does not make it equal between the privilege and poor children as many think it should. Decreasing poverty and inequality first, will raise educational enrollment and performance of students to succeed without regard to their environment situations, race, and gender. Funding is one way that affects the quality of the education system.
Should children be able to make the choice to drop out of school at such an early and crucial time in their development? There are many reasons why children and teens are required to stay in school until their senior year. Children do not know the importance of an education and are not well rounded enough to get a job that pays above the poverty level. Children during their key years of development are easily influenced and unable to think for them-selves unless taught to do so. This mass amount of uneducated adults would also have a huge effect on the economy do to the large amount of low income families.
Another is the failure of many students to demonstrate their knowledge of basic skills and literacy. It is surprising that such a long time has passed without any sufficient effort put forth to correct the problem. Even more surprising, is the fact that some deny that such a problem exists. The failure of the nation to adequately educate the students of America has an endless list of negative effects. With the lack of proper education, generations of kids are growing up without the basic, essential knowledge to be able to compete in the workplace.
The paper the focal will be discusses on what will happen to the children of America in term of their education, the worker, and what the government do or need to do to bring back the American dream. The future of America children As the US economic is in crisis, Many company had take their business overseas affecting government revenue. Due to the Lack of revenue, government does not have enough funds to run all public schools. As a solution to help keeping the school/education running, some experts predict that there will be a rising interest in privatizing many public schools. However, there are concerns of what will really happen if public school/education when being privatized.
With this in mind, school districts are still witnessing a tremendous growth of their ELL population as educators prepare for the tidal wave of non-English speakers. Unfortunately, in lieu of the data, school districts are still not ready for the influx of students who are arriving every day, and teachers are not fully prepared. Additionally, many school districts are failing to support their teachers and to evaluate their ELL programs effectiveness. In fact, the lack of success in many ELL programs is due to the insight that many states are implementing programs with no proof that such programs are effective or working. Simply put, many school districts are not evaluating the efficacy of their program, providing support to teachers, and initiating diversity training and skill buildings.

However, the people in charge of making the changes are the ones who profit and will probably never change their mindset. The school system needs to be changed entirely, but solutions to this problem simply aren’t out there. Experimentation needs to be done in certain school systems to determine the most successful method. Until then, the United States of America will continue to support a failing school system and will continue to produce uneducated adults.
Education is a very important factor in today’s society. Many families and students are becoming more overwhelmed with the price of schooling and the difficulties that come with it. Government officials are hurting the economy by taking and spending money where it’s less needed instead of where it’s needed the most. I strongly believe that we should give to the youth and as much as we can because they are the key to this future. They are going to be the ones someday handling all the major business and taking over, so why shouldn’t we help them?
This new grading scale is more to a help at raising scoring and funding than allowing students to learn the information in a way that will be reliable in the future. The no zero grading policy may allow students to pass, it may even encourage them to continue to stay in school, but it is not helping the children to be successful in society. Are colleges excepting this new grading scale? As most colleges except a new student for their grades and work ethics. With this policy schools are only motivating students to come to school for the knowledge that they will pass.
