Charles Dickens's Great Expectation is a radical novel since Dickens is struggling to depict a better living for the Victorian England. Dickens believes that people should find a better education and opportunities but under a moral and decent umbrella. During the 19th century, England has faced the radical ideologies as opposed to the restricted bourgeois. The "radical reform" is the goal of Dickens' writings since England has been going under the radical reformation from the late 18 century. Psychoanalysis, Victorianism, and Radicalism are the three main diminutions this paper tends to argue and develop.
Progressives believed that wealth was too present in certain people’s hands; however, they disagreed over how to regulate big business. Some progressives even advocated socialism. A main issue that progressives also focused on was social welfare problems. Health and safety codes were created to protect workers and the public. Child labor laws were passed as well.
The need to redefine is as certain as taxes and death. After all, is not change the direct prelude to progress and betterment? How that change is carried out, however, is just as important, and sometimes even more so, especially when it involves children. No matter how lengthy of a process, school districts considering redistricting have an obligation to include all who are affected as this would bring more accuracy, permanence, and empowerment to the community facing a tough challenge. As districts around the nation face a crisis in school overcrowding, implementing a redistricting plan in order to spread the student population to less crowded schools is a strategy which must be carried out with as much accurate results as possible.
However the conflict view argues that childhood has not improved because massive inequalities still exist amongst children such as the control and oppression of adults. The March of progress view argues that society has recognised that childhood is a distinct phase in one’s life where children should be treated separately to adults. Children are more valued, cared for, protected and educated due to the introduction of various laws. The child labour act of 1938 restricts children from going into paid employment and protects them from the exploitation of working life. In 1870 it became compulsory for all children to receive an education which provides children with equal opportunities.
It discouraged governments from spending public money on welfare services. The liberal reforms brought about much needed change within the welfare state. Such as in the late 19th century the workhouse conditions were made more humane. This was the beginning of the various areas of social welfare provision such as public health, housing and education. The inter war years had an impact on the liberal reforms as the government promised to provide for the British people as this was used as a motive during the war.
How far did the workhouses meet ‘less eligibility?’ Under the old Poor Law the local parish workhouse were seen as a relatively unthreatening and evenly friendly institution. However, workhouses under the new Poor Were aimed to discourage paupers into not wanting to enter. This was known as less eligibility. Less eligibility was a British government policy passed into law in the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834. It stated that conditions in workhouses had to be worse than conditions available outside so that there was deterrence to claiming poor relief.
The first main difference between the Liberals and the Conservatives in the mid-1860s is their beliefs. The Liberals led by William Gladstone, were general believers of Gladstonian Liberalism. This was essentially “peace reform and retrenchment”. Gladstone’s own financial policies that were based on balanced budgets, low taxes, and laissez-faire (self-help) were better suited to the developing capitalist society of Britain in the mid-1860s. The Liberals were not very big supporters of the Monarch and wanted the Monarchy out of the political area and it just to be solely the government.
Catholic schools tend to be more repressive, having stricter rules and guidelines then the public installations. Some of these include the wearing of uniforms and the anal regulation of behavior. Public schools are fairly lax and welcome individualism. The students are taught to be unique and inventive. Their creativity is harnessed (in theory) instead of punished as in the Catholic school world.
One of the possible factors was the genuine concern that they felt towards the poor. However, this argument cannot be ignored but it would prove too simplistic and explanation on why the Liberals introduced the social reforms. There are a number of other factors which led too the introduction of the Reforms one being the social reports of Booth and Rowntree that confirmed poverty was a big issue. Also the fact that Britain feared her place being a top industrial power was threatened by a lack of good workers, britains Empire was still extremely important to her and they had discovered when recruiting for the Boer war that many men were unable to fight due to poor health. Some even argue that the Reforms were introduced for politically selfish reasons as they believed that the Liberals felt threatened by the Labour party.
I understand his idea, but the fact is that uniforms did not help the students. One of the critical reasons parents believe that students to wear school uniforms is that uniforms provide safety for students. What they mean is that it will eliminate bullying and violence in schools since students will not judge each other on what they wear. Parents also mention that since all the students wear the same uniform, it is easier to identify people that are not from the school, creating a better safety for the students. Another important reason parents explain is that in a uniform-worn high school, students seem to act more discipline.
