Payne states that impoverished students face inequality at school, insinuating that the school should be responsible for helping to provide for these students so that they can have a better education. Gorski sees that responsibility lies most likely with us, who can aid teachers in offering a hand, as they are underpaid and are not able to do much on their own.

Michael Tonsi Valarie Thomas English 1102 15 February 2013 Ramifications of Poverty All people want the right to a decent life and education, no one argues that. Not everyone grows up the same way or with the same privileges, which is generally understood. In Toni Cade Bambara’s short story “The Lesson”, a group of young children are growing up in poverty when an educator creates the environment to help them not only discover, but succeed in learning some very important issues about their immediate world around them. Miss Moore provides the motivation required for people to realize their god given right to something better. Readers realize that Miss.
In an article about corporal punishment titled “Get your beat on,” by Cathy Barnum, she writes about the negative and positive effects of corporal punishment in schools. Barnum attempts to explain the negative effects of corporal punishment. She notes that spanking lowers children’s self-worth and hinders their academic abilities. And, she notes that it negatively alters their behavior while instilling fear in them.

No Child Left behind Act– Final Tonza Simmons ENG 122 English Composition II Prof. Nancy Segovia May 19, 2014 No Child Left behind Act– Final The No Child Left behind Act is a form of modern day segregation that is providing youth with hopelessness to achieve. This law is a way of holding the disadvantaged hostage to oppression for years to come, due to the lack of education and comprehension skills. I believe that this law was created without really understanding the needs of all children across America. This act was and is more about a political agenda verses the betterment of America's children. Authors, John W. Borkowski and Maree Sneed, Harvard Educational Review, v76 n4 p503-525 Win (2006) suggested, "that there may be some
It can’t be on the roads…New Orleans has some of the worst roads in America. It is my belief that the lottery is not helping our schools and in a way to cover up the real issues, these states are blaming our children of not passing the standardize test that have been mandated by whom? That’s right, the State! So in closing, it is my opinion if the lottery’s purpose is to fund public schools, then that’s what it should do. Stop passing blame to throw off the real issues.
Above, I stated why the topics should be addressed and how important it is for children to have organizations to help better themselves, by being healthy, social, a developing the skills that they should by having open play and encounter with parents, friends, teachers and families.

We as Educators are well trained and passionate. We value, respect and appreciate this uniqueness. We feel children have a right to be active participants in their own learning and must be empowered to express their views and ideas. A child's opinion must be valued for its validity to their perspective and their autonomy and initiative needs to be respected. We as Educators will protect and cherish the innocence of children and thus provide a safe and secure environment.
