For others, schools cannot provide a basic level of education because they do not have funds to do so. All those factors create a big issue because the level of education is going down, meaning weaker working potential in the future which will lead to weaker economy and will lower the standards of life. It makes Americans question the upcoming future of their careers, incomes and standard education. American public education needs to be reformed, but unfortunately, that reform will not lead to any significant changes in student’s behaviors that have caused low academic achievement and the lowering of faculty moral. Students have become extremely disrespectful.
Public schools that receive significantly less funding cannot provide students with resources such as up to date textbooks, technology, and other up-to-date learning materials. This lack of funding can also affect the students on an emotional level. Many students aren 't motivated to learn, regardless of their situation. So when presented with bad teachers and poor resources even the gifted students begin to distinguish education as a chore and not a means to a successful future. It is as Bill Gates was once quoted saying,”I went to public school through sixth grade, and being good at tests wasn 't cool.” Imagine if Bill Gates had given up, perhaps the world would have never have profited from the technology he developed and the philanthropic contributions he has made.
Natalie A. Johnson-Leslie, the author of “Effective vs Ineffective Teachers Educating Our Children”, claimed that ineffective teachers have inadequate classroom and management skills. They cannot control their students and cannot keep their classrooms quiet. As a result, the atmosphere of the classrooms is usually too loud for the students to be willing to learn. Derrick Meador, a school administrator and the author of “Qualities of Bad Teachers”, asserted that the teachers are not motivated to teach their students. They do not put a lot of effort into their job.
Also, the rigorous strategy of teaching has been proven to be unproductive at closing the education gap. NCLB causes students to suffer mentally and emotionally, which could lead to long term affects such as dropping out of school. The law also isolates students by their race regardless of academic performance or upbringing. “No Child Left Behind” was a good attempt by the Bush Administration to improve education in American but did not turnout the way it was planned to.
Now, instead of all students receiving a poor education, some are not getting one at all. The main cause for this is the students'lack of interest in school. So much of the teaching that goes on today is based on rote and memorization. Not all learning can be exciting, and sometimes memorizing things is necessary. Although teachers should find other ways of getting the information to the students.
Furthermore, many teachers lack the understanding about what qualifies heterosexism. Hence, they have the tendency to downplay the significance and the consequences for LGB youth. Lastly, even when students do seek education or a teacher wants to provide it in their classroom, they fear a lack of support from other staff. In one New South Wales study, a teacher “ ” Consequently, teachers choose to exclude such education from fear of being stigmatised or harassed themselves. Education of teachers is the key measure to prevent t... ... middle of paper ... ...ty, 32(3), 349-367. doi: 10.1177/0013124500323005 7.
There are many reasons why traditional teacher evaluations are looked down upon. One of the reasons is because of the fact they are done so infrequently. Very little can be observed regarding the teaching and learning processes (O’Donovan, 2011). This can lead to a very unfair representation of a teacher’s performance since much of what a teacher can do, cannot be observed in one or two observations. It is also questioned whether the judgments of administrators are valid due to both the infrequency and lack of evaluator training (O’Donovan, 2011; Milanowski, 2011).
Just because you don’t understand the subject of a test doesn’t mean you can’t get anywhere in life. Exams are a bad way of testing your knowledge at any age. “Our compulsory school-attendance laws once served a humane and useful purpose. They protected the children’s right to some schooling, … Today the laws help nobody”(3) Holt explains that keeping kids in school who don’t want to be there costs “an enormous amount of time and trouble”(3). Even if the teacher was trying to teach the child something useful, him not wanting to be there is a waste of time for them both.
These presumptions have been calamitous to the education system in light of the fact that they don't represent favoritism of schools in the edification system. For instance, schools that have profoundly taught educators, advanced material, and suitable facilities can give more to the learner than those that don't. How then can schools be required to be evaluated the same on the off chance that they are not the same? By dismissing the education of American youngsters, and not giving an equivalent thorough training to each person in every school, social order is setting them up for failure. More people will drop out of school because of failing grades in light of the fact that schools are equipping them for government sanctioned tests, and not giving a thorough training that shows them how to utilize their education, other than a test taken yearly.
The bottom 1% are considered low-performing schools, and must undergo the reconstitution process. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find any positive feedback and information concerning reconstitution. Past assistant secretary of education Diane Ravitch, once an advocate of the No Child Left Behind Act, is now against the policy as a whole. She believes that this policy puts education on the wrong track and that it will not improve public education due to its emphasis on test scores, which leads to cheating and dishonesty. She says that the program has also turned schools into an “Educational Marketplace” because schools are competing with each other to receive better resources.
