At times I wouldn't blame them if they were to think this in any way but I am going to have to say that have a little faith in us. What we do cane either make or break America. My responsibility is to be able to demonstrate to others that it is not a bad thing to have ambition and strive for the best in whatever it is we want to pursue. Everything we want to do or be starts with education. Even though Education can be very tedious and at moments seem extremely difficult we just need to get through it, after all education is not something meant to be easy because then it is not education and we are not learning anything, the goal is to learn, comprehend as much information and apply that to the world we live in.
The government, parents, and teachers are trying all they can to come up with a successful solution. They all give our children the best education possible, but there are many different ideas as to how this should be accomplished. There have been many debates on this topic. Many claim “grades are statistically the most reliable predictor of future academic success” (Penn). The problem with standardized testing is that it does not agree well with education.
The best way of defining this is that, Systemic Inequality can be viewed as structural injustice. These inequalities evolve and change over time throughout the various social groups all over the world and are sometimes very difficult to overcome. I truly admire people who achieve success through overcoming the barriers that society has given them. Combining these theories within the educational system in the United States plays a huge role in the world we live in.
Serious Challenges Facing Public Education Today Not many would argue about the importance of excellence in education. Problems such as teacher attrition, lack of parent involvement, and teaching high-stakes testing may hinder progress in education. They are only a few of many major issues facing American education, and educators are challenged to do everything in their power to conquer them. An education is a indispensable and essential tool, and it’s important to get our students to value their education. An education can open doors to opportunities that would have never been possible were it not for the education and preparation that one received while in school.
Alba Dominguez Todd Fox English 100 11 March 2014 Integrity in American Culture Throughout people’s lives, they are faced with countless decisions. Whether to cut corners on upcoming school projects, lying to a police officer for speeding on the road, or doing anything to make themselves a little bit better than their coworkers, colleagues, or neighbors. American culture is based on winning on a variety of aspects. Morality and ethics go hand-in-hand with these issues because sometimes being the best in something requires people to bend the rules. Because American culture is based on people’s desire to succeed at all cost, this negatively affects their values.
Taking into consideration from an aspect of the importance of accepting post-secondary education, I hold the view that free post-secondary education should been provided by the government. Firstly, education increases job opportunities for individuals. Poverty, homelessness, unemployment; these are some of the worst aspects that plague our society. How can we combat these problems? One possibility is through the increased education of our youth.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” Nelson Mandela. Education is one of the most important factors needed to survive in life. Education is the key element to opening the door of opportunities to a person’s beneficial wellbeing. “For generations of families, education has been the path out of poverty. With a quality education children can acquire the economic, social, cultural and political capital they need to realize their potential and support their future families” (The State of America’s Children, Children’s Defense Fund 2014).
A Hopeless Debate: Conformity vs. Individuality There is no doubt that every school in America has a main goal of providing what they think is best for their students. I truly believe that state education and student individuality cause much of the tension in public schools. All schools want to achieve the same goal of building a good student. The argument of conformity vs. individuality in schools across America is very significant because almost everyone has a different opinion and there are many unique clarifications. There is no right answer to this argument.
As a parent of my own two teenagers, being in agreement with their choice of clothing sometimes comes to a battle stand. I do not want my children exposing themselves any more than necessary to the public in general or at school. As a result, Wayne County School District Board is convening soon to again review the dress code policy that is in place for our county. Uniforms and stricter dress codes are ever becoming the more positive choice at hand, both the educators and for parents like me. Much to the chagrin of my teens, I will be voting in favor of uniforms, or the strictest dress code policy options available.
EN110 Achieving Academic Excellence Writing Assignment 5, “Why college education is important to me” 07/18/14 “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”--Nelson Mandela, July 16 2003 An education is more than going to a college or university to receive a degree. It provides the opportunity to expand our minds to the fullest, to absorb what is around us. It allows us to experience the differences and similarities of our fellow men and women. To me, that is why a college education is important. It prepares you for the future world in which, at times, can change in an instant.
