Richard Graff 's Hidden Intellectualism, By Gerald Graff

- In his essay "Hidden Intellectualism," Gerald Graff argues that intellectualism is not something that can only be taught through proper education like school or college, but with subjects that people consider non academics as sports, cars, or popular culture. The writer considers "street smart" to those people who learn things outside of an academic environment, for example in the streets of their neighborhood or their parent’s professions like being a mechanic. The writer argues that educators should let students decide on the subject that they are more interested to learn, this would open up possibilities for the student to excel in his academic environment as well as his own interests....   [tags: Education, Teacher, High school, School]

The Problem Of Poor Education

- Notice that Third World countries have the largest amounts of illiterate people. It’s not a mystery that people living in poverty don’t have easy access to an education like citizens who are well-off do.

Impoverished people have many disadvantages when it comes to being formally educated.

It is very hard for a school system to cater to every student, in every aspect. It’s just not feasible; as many individuals learn in their own ways, at their own pace, and may have heightened interests in particular subjects that another student may not find so interesting....   [tags: Education, High school, College, Teacher]
