One of the most common misconceptions when it comes to a student’s academic success in poverty stricken schools is that they are unwilling and unable to learn. This is not the case. Yes a child can determine their own education by choosing to do their work and be willing to learn, but you must take into consideration their circumstances. Most of these schools are very diverse, which leads them to be exposed to gangs, drugs, and violence. The achievement gap between these schools and more fortunate schools is wide.
Introduction Problem background Many children face big challenges because of the inclusive education, with a greater number from poorer countries failing to attend schools while the others from rich countries attending classes but ends up leaving unworthy qualifications (Ainscow, 2). Disabled students have the right to good education and feel free to interact with others in classrooms which help them to get rid of loneliness and therefore reducing the stresses. Research question From the research question, the argument is about the children with special needs having different teaching strategies from those of other students. Strategies on how to assess children with special needs should be different from that used on other students because different needy students have varying disabilities which calls for special attention. Assessing the children based on selection and ranking closes out the needy students because they cannot compete with the able students and as such they end up in stigmatization.
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.
Without the ability to remember knowledge taught in school curriculums, these children will receive lower grades than most classmates. The lack of strong cognitive skills in needy children is caused by both chronic stress and preoccupation with their lack of money (Stromberg). The situation around them disables children to thoroughly think about homework problems and test questions. As a result of mental illness and cognitive weakness, minors lose confidence in their own academic performance. Matt Repka
Numerical Grading Systems are Unfair Jillian Szczesny TSEM 102.102 Prof. McNary Abstract Students attending school in the middle class and wealthier communities have numerous advantages over children from less privileged neighborhoods. Those with financial resources can afford the expense of academic tutors and preparation courses for standardized tests. Their families support and broaden their children’s education with cultural and educational experiences not sponsored by school. Whereas, many students in urban school districts do not have the funds nor the parental involvement to excel in their education in and out of the classroom. A numerical grading system is unfair to disadvantaged students because, although
Education is strongly advocated as the pathway to providing children with greater life opportunities, unfortunately inequalities in the accessibility to resources and quality education is a key contributor to the continuation of poverty (Marginson, n.d, p.2). Children raised in poverty commonly underachieve because they can struggle with high expenses that may be associated with educational activities and resources (Weale, 2014). Making things worse these children often have inadequate clothing, limited stock of healthy food and reduced access to basic health services, further separating them from their wealthier peers (Gorski, 2013, p.49). Keep this in mind when planning and preparing homework, many children may not have access to computers. Setting tasks that do not require electronical resources, supports a more level playing field for
Causes of poverty Poverty has several causes and the basic ones are: • Overpopulation • Global distribution of resources • High standards and cost of living • Lack of education • Unemployment • Individual responsibility • Welfa... ... middle of paper ... ...cken areas will have a lack of water and electricity supply.

Ways to deal with or/and adapt challenges: Micro Environment Schools allocate resources to the different sections in the schools, these resources are allocated to help educate the children if the children don’t attend classes or come to school because of malnutrition and don’t concentrate. These resources will go to waste. Market Environment: Government should make schools aware of the disadvantaged children and they should all be taught because everyone has the right to a proper education.
Whether these feelings are only perceived or if they are true, they still present a barrier that is hard to overcome. I know that in my own school, I have witnessed these types of parent cliques. Many low income parents don’t have the financial resources to buy the fanciest treats for parties or other class activities. As a teacher leader, I need to make all parents feel a part of the school culture. I would like to see teachers have more training and professional development on the effects poverty has on the economically disadvantaged students.
If the child is not exposed to technology, this results in the child feeling insecure and incompetent amongst his/her peers who have the cultural capital to gain access to such equipment. The lack of parental involvement in many working class learners hampers the progress of many children. There are many internal and external factors that contribute to a child’s development and learning .The concept of inclusion may take a longer time to be successful in South Africa as the problems and challenges are unique to our country which the education system is still addressing. A lot more reflection needs to be done and support services by the department of education and districts needs to be consistent. Inadequate infra-structure makes the process more difficult.
This acts as a disadvantage to lower classes who throughout their academic career will suffer as a result of their social background. Also rejection and an inability to respond to school is linked to social class but acts in a way to shape pupils attitudes in a way where they feel school has nothing to offer and end up with poorer life chances than those who accept schooling and strive to achieve the highest possible goals. Also gender plays an important part in life chances since boys and girls not only tend to perform differently in school but also achieve different qualifications which result in different occupations. Finally ethnicity works in a way that again disadvantages ethnic minorities who can be cast out at school leading to under achievement but can also be discriminated against leading to lower perceived ability and hence educational attainment
