Some schools, like the grammar schools, require a good result on the 11+. This leads to cream skimming, but also off-loading of ‘bad’ students, that for example will refuse children with learning difficulties good education, because they are “those students who won’t do well anyways”. The top students often seem to be from the middle class. They don’t suffer from material or cultural deprivation and often use the elaborated code, which makes education easier for them. This makes the schools trying to appeal to the middle class parents, to make the middle class parents choose their school and help them get their own results better.
the first thing that we can choose to look at would be at his school. they support him eith his education, reconizing his talent whtn other people could not and they transfer him to a private school in hope that he will achieve greater success there. not only did they want him to show his talents off, but they also wanted to make him feel comfortable at his new school so they placed him on the basketball team. They had Jamal's best intrestes in mind when doing so. another social insitiution is william, who not only supporst his writing talents, but also helps him gain confidence within his work.
Assess the view that the education system exists mainly to select and prepare young people for their future work roles One perspective that supports this is the functionalist view that secondary socialisation prepares children for work later on in life. They believe secondary socialisation does this as in a school environment you learn the norms and values of authority figures, for example, the teachers. Functionalists therefore believe that this can then later be applied in the work place as the norms and values are carried on however the authority figure role changes from teacher to boss. Generally, the text implies that primary socialisation isn’t enough in preparation for a large-scale society. Education, a secondary agency of socialisation
Anyon does think that more research needs to be done to clearly show how economic status has a direct connection to the role in children’s education. What I think one of the key aspects of Anyon’s essay is the examples that were given for each school and how the social class affected the teaching. Examples were given by what the teacher said and how he/she taught, I was able to put myself in the classroom and see how I would have handled learning. Starting with the working-class schools, Anyon observed how teachers didn’t explain the work, how it would relate to other lessons, or the point of learning. I feel if you don’t understand the point of something, what is the point of learning?
Fryer, the then Secretary of state for the Labour Party to respond to the Dearing report. Fryer’s report encouraged all to embark on a process of life long learning. This report was fuelled by New Labours New deal initiative to enable people on benefits a new chance to gain employment. ‘Life long learning’ was a net for the disaffected youth, who the educational system had previously failed. The Moser Report challenged further Dearing’s and Kennedy’s report by suggesting that the disaffected youth could be a result of deficiency in the basic skills of individuals such as literacy and numeracy.
That parents stress to children the importance of education all their school lives, but they continue to give money things that are less important, instead they should put money towards the teachers who wants to help make a difference in every child's life. Barber believes that parents should actually display their actions that they care and value their education. He explains who are to blame for the lack of quality education in America. The generations before the young and the government have a partial blame in why the school system is failing. Barber's argument is more superior, because he takes the sociopolitical context of education in to account, where as Henry does not.
Emphasis is put on having awareness of how we perceive others with different backgrounds and how we interact with them. Guideline number two emphasizes recognizing multicultural sensitivity and knowledge as it relates to ethnically and racially different people. I have always assumed that I was not prejudice having grown up in mixed communities all my life. I have worked with and gone to school with people from a variety of cultures and religions. Making comments to a client when I was a new counselor years ago like, “but you are a man what do you mean you can’t find a job what about your family” seemed harmless at the time.
Federico Fellini once said “A different language is a different vision of life”. He is talking about that when you speak a different language a whole new different part of life opens up to you and you see from others’ points of view on life.

If your child has proper nutrition there are many ways this will help out in the long run. One reason is school. As a child in school you would want to have friends, hang out, do homework together, and just be a kid. I was the kid nobody wanted to be around because I was a geek and I had a weight problem in middle school. I didn’t have friends because I liked school.
Nowadays there is a considerable debate whether children should go to schools for education or can have home education instead. People are starting to consider thinking which way would be more suitable for their kids and for themselves as well. They are assessing the positives and negatives of each option and then choosing the one that is best fitting their needs and life style. Although that most of parents that started home education for their children have found out that it is not easy to transfer school facilities to home, but it has become a very accepted alternative way for going to schools . The number of children being educated at home is considerably increasing though there are no accurate prevalence estimates as mentioned by Petrie, Windrass & Thomas, 1999.
