Research shows that parent in the upper class participate more in a student’s educational career. Students with involved parents tend to earn higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, enroll in high-level programs, graduate and go on to a post-secondary education. Post-secondary education is an optional final stage of formal learning that... ... middle of paper ... ... some type of homework, they feel like there forgetting something. Educational inequality is one factor that continues the class divide across generations. Because members of high social classes tend to be better educated, because of their various resources, they have higher incomes and are more likely able to provide educational advantages, for not only themselves, but to their children as well.
School Choice: Opportunity for Success For some parents, education is highly valued and they can afford high tuition, so they send their children to the private school. Other parents spend more money to move into a community where has good schools. We can call the situations stated above "school choice". However, what we talk here is not the "school choice"; there is another kind of school choice, which all parents can make and do not need to spend more money to move into another community. Generally speaking, children from the high SES family have better opportunities to get appropriate education and succeed in the society.
Children raised in two-parent homes are more likely to complete high school and attend college. Cho, Lee, and Kuchner (2007) found that students raised in two parent homes demonstrate better behavior, have less absences and tardies and have much higher grade point averages. Researchers suggest that children from two parent homes have better grades and achieve academically as well as socially because the parents have more time to devote to the upbringing of the children oppose to single parents. Although two-parent familie... ... middle of paper ... ...ents in Single Parent Families. Sex Roles.
More learning creates better grades for students. There is research which shows the addition of having high-quality teaching time benefits everyone. Low-income students and the others with little opportunity are the ones who benefit the most from more time in school. Students also tend to behave better when they have more guidance. (Silva).
Students in smaller classes have proven to have higher test scores, also teachers who teach smaller classes have a better morale. Lastly, students of smaller classes are less likely to drop out of high school, leading to better outcomes in life for their future. I believe that if an amendment were added to lower class sizes, there would be numerous benefits for teachers and students. Works Cited Schanzenbach, D. W. (2014, February 18). Does Class Size Matter?.
There are many studies that show the advantages in life that single sex schooled kids have over co-ed. People in single sex score higher on tests, stay out of trouble and are more willing to study a wider range of subjects than pupils in co-educational schools. Researchers also say that single sex schooling can help a person’s chances of getting into a better college. Also, studies show that single sex schooled people have a greater chance of getting better grades and test scores in college. "Single-sex schools can provide an important contribution, and the people it will benefit the most are disadvantaged children," said Cornelius Riordan, a sociologist at Providence College.
Furthermore, promoting a collaborated working relationship between school and parents has shown to reduce the achievement gap, especially among diverse learners. Parental participation has shown to be positively related to student’s educational performance (McWayne, Hampton, Fantuzzo, Cohen, & Sekino, 2004) and according to Eamon (2002), may mediate the effects of poverty, parents’ educational attainment, and race/ethnicity on achievement. As educators begin to understand the various culturally diverse backgrounds that make up the public school system within the United States, they are gaining knowledge on individual perceptions and effective ways to develop relationships while meeting the diverse needs of each student and their families. The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the importance of including parents, families, and caregivers of culturally diverse backgrounds in the educational process of their child. I will include successful practices myself and administrators have implemented to promote the parent and school partnership, and discuss some reasons why I believe some parents still do not feel comfortable participating in the school environment.
A voucher program would not only be beneficial to parents and students, but also to education as it stands today. Parents would benefit by basing their decisions about education on the worth of the school instead of on money. Students would benefit by having a choice between public and private school. Even students not involved in the voucher program would benefit, by smaller class sizes, more diversity, and better teaching due to competition between schools. Education as we know it today, both public and private, would benefit by having more choices, and would then be able to assist more students in reaching their educational goals.
On the other hand, another group of parents thinks that public schools are the better route. Nevertheless, public schools have been proven to be more successful in the education of a maturing child. Students who attend public schools are faced with many different challenges that differ in comparison to a private school student. Whereas, many private schools are small in population, public schools usually have a larger number of students resulting in a great diversity of pupils. Students from every race, culture, and religious background come together in one school system.
Many factors comprise socioeconomic, but in this study the researcher only used household income and household’s available resources as determinants of education. Parents with high income have the opportunity to give their children a much more comfortable life (Hassink and Kiiver, 2007). Parents who earn more tend to invest and spend more on their children’s education therefore securing quality education through acquiring more years of schooling that perhaps leads to a better future for their
