Frank Reimann 12/3/13 Michigan Education There are many problems with public education in Michigan, but the biggest problem that we are faced with is the impact of social and economic disadvantages on many schools and students. The expectations for kids in the 21st century are set very high, but with poverty levels increasing and school budgets being cut, how are they supposed to keep up with the rest of the world? I believe that a way that the businesses could support schools is by forming a relationship with them. Because after all the businesses are the ones who benefit most from educated people. The higher educated the worker, the more the businesses will benefit.
The overall article was about how multiple schools may be closed due to the vexing problem of declining students enrollments. How they solved the situation was that the school had to shift the students. Now the Sac City Unified schol district should sell unused propreties as surplus to developers for other approprate uses. The arguement that I see that's presented is that "with an overall 10 percent reduction in students, what do we do with schools is no longer able
The low graduation rate is not good for my community because it will lead to increase in the degree of unemployment and this may trigger the rate of crime. Every person desires a safe and secure environment, an environment where its inhabitants enjoy numerous economic benefits. Hence, I would address the unequal allocation of resources and discrimination in district schools because by addressing this inequality, I will be creating not only an educated community but also reduced crime
American immigrants occupy low-income employments. Their low-income employment opportunities offer low incomes that are affected by recessions in the economy. Just like the other American people who have high wages in their employment, the illegal immigrants need health and education services and because they cannot cater for such services, they tend to resort to public assistance from the government and this affects the US economy. In this connection, the US government should not legalize illegal immigrants because this will affect their economy. Illegal immigrants also pose a problem to the US economy because their children’s education increases the government’s expenditure on education.
The schools are generally over crowded with few good teachers. When there's a great public school there is not enough space for every child in the neighborhood. Children are stuck in low achieving schools because of how the school districts are divided. A lot of children end up in poor public schools because their parents do not possess the income that it takes to send them to a private school. Since 1971 education cost has increased from $4,300 to more than $9,000 per student.
Same Tuition’s Problem The issue of higher education and immigration has been debated for more than a decade. American educational system is falling to a record low level for its unprecedented low academic standard, high dropout rate, and huge economic burden (Walsh 1). The state should require illegal immigrants to pay higher tuition should they decide to participate in public higher education, because illegal immigrants drain resources; affect the quality of public educations; and take away legal residents’ rights. In doing so, the overall public education system may head to a right direction. Illegal aliens have strained our education budget (Walsh 1).
Was the great depression the main reason why the Nazi party grew between 192 and 1932? Many people believe that the Nazi party grew so rapidly because of the great depression. The great depression caused many problems to people’s lives. One group of people that were affected were the middle class. The great depression meant that many of the families had lost their savings; it was horrible to know that all the money that they had saved throughout the years has just vanished so quickly.
Paul Krugman: “America Must Redeclare the War on Poverty” Krugman states “poverty in early childhood is like poison to the brain”. Many children experience the effects of poverty such as unhealthy levels of stress, thus making it harder to escape poverty. Since the war on poverty was abandoned approximately forty years ago and the government shifted its focus on the alleged abuses of welfare, the percentage of those in poverty has increased and is getting worse. When President Johnson declared the “war on poverty” forty four years ago there was a dramatic reduction of those affected by poverty. The increase in the percentage of people today in poverty should show the government something needs to be done and we should once again re-declare
With that being said, while a minimum wage increase may lift some families out of poverty, they push even more families into poverty as employers try to control cost by eliminating jobs, displacing low skilled adults for more productive employees or shaving work schedules. Equally important, raising the minimum wage can have the unintended consequence of actually costing the working poor most of the higher earning accompanying their wage increases. A mandated increase may reduce government assistance programs, such as food stamps, Medicare benefits, housing subsidies and even welfare payments. You can therefore state, as earned incomes rises, public assistance
Williams, Lynae Boone Period: 7 1/7/12 The Reality of Life In reality, how many people actually take education seriously? Personally school systems from my perspective are not at the best they can be. The concern of all students and the education they receive seems to be very low. The law “No students left behind”, needs to be enforced more than it has been previously and as it is being enforced today. The film Waiting For Superman addressed the fact that a lot of students do not have the opportunity to get a good education, so there for students are being left behind.
