This move toward equal opportunity has come about through numerous measures enacted throughout our history. A few of those policies, such as ¡§Affirmative Action¡¨, contain very controversial issues that many employers hope to see changed, or done away wi! th all together. For the present time, however, the trend continues in most every state and is enforced by law. The effects of diversity on our nation can be traced back to the civil war period.
Recent studies show, that a high school education is presently becoming less and less useful. It is stated, “Two-thirds of college professors report that what is taught in high school does not prepare students for college” (Broad, para.3). In high schools, many students see their education and teachers as a joke; they blame their attitudes on the teachers and administration in the high schools because they are too lenient. Students would take their high school education seriously if their teachers and administration were tougher on them and they would not try to get by. High school education needs to be more complex to prepare young adults for the real world and college, if college is to be considered.
He also finds that most high schools focus too much on getting young adults ready for college. Another problem with high school is kids may be smart but do not excel during test taking, so the teacher does not see that kid as a smart student. This may lead to the teacher acting as if this student is not as intelligent as others. If a student picks up on that, which often happens, that student may think he is not as intelligent as the other kids. The child may wonder “what is the point of school, besides attendance?” (Baker 225) If a student has a positive outlook on his own intelligence, then that student may do better than if he thought he was intellectually behind his classmates.
They had to intervene which brought tons of good and bad things to the United States. The Vietnam War wasn’t only affecting the North and South Vietnam it also affected the United States and the citizens of the war from both the United States and Vietnam. There were many causes for the Vietnam War. It all started with a dispute between North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Their dispute was over the
This is a major factor in why community colleges have overwhelming populations. It could be true that if a student is put in a class with people who learn at a faster pace than them and who know more than them, that student gets discouraged, and therefore does not try as hard. There are plenty of students who barely try in school, but due to there learning speed, learn and know everything that is being taught. To have those kids go to the same college as the students who do try really hard to achieve knowledge is preposterous. They should give every student an equal opportunity to get into high level colleges due to there working habits, not there knowledge.
For the majority of the students, those moving on to community colleges or lesser universities, there will be a set of classes that will teach the same subjects as the honor courses, just not in as much detail. There will also be a third tier of classes below this one which will serve the needs of those students who are not academically up to standard. The students in the lower classes will not be allowed to "slack off" and graduate with a sub-par education. Their classes will be more rigorous than the average classes in an effort to bring the students back up to the standard.
The American civil war was one of the biggest hardships for a young country to endure, and yet it did not prepare them for the tension after. Slavery was the biggest conflict between the Northern states and the Southern states, this is what lead us to civil war. In the midst of all the national crisis was a breaking point for the young country. Reconstruction was needed, and the period following the civil war, the reconstruction period, fostered many significant results and achievements especially for Constitutional amendments. While mending a broken country, the reconstruction period still left many fresh wounds.
Throughout history, different events have molded and shaped our country. We dealt with horrible depressions, segregation, and many wars. But, we have managed to always stick together, fight through it, and look for the most positive outcomes. Our country has been shaped through many wonderful presidents, and also many social and cultural events. I don’t believe that they can be summarized down into one specific event that changed America.
The American education system has existed for a long time. Over that span of time, it has been criticized, manipulated, and modified constantly. It is frequently a central topic of political elections because there are so many opinions on the matter. Everybody seems to think that their way of running the system is the best. But whose system really is best?
Strict laws were soon put into effect, some more severe than others, in an attempt to stop or at least slow the number of immigrants coming to America. Even today, refugees and immigrants are put through tremendous hassles, some never making it past the legal barriers. There is a serious problem with these laws, however.
