Many schools don’t have bilingual education, which causes many students to drop out. Another cause of students dropping out if the poor economy, because many parents need their children to work as well to make ends meet. In 2005, the country had ten universities, two technical universities, one Roman Catholic university, and one musical conservatory Along with them are several trade schools designed to train its students for specific jobs. The percentage of literate adults is
Lucas Ancke December 1, 2012 English 101: 3 p.m. Prof. Amanda Ross Waiting for “Superman” Response Davis Guggenheim’s documentary, Waiting for “Superman,” follows five children trying to further their education when they felt like they were not receiving one that they wanted. Most of these children were living in poverty or close to it and could not afford a private school, so they were forced to go to bad quality schools. Guggenheim states that, some of these schools are considered drop-out factories, where over 40% of students don’t graduate. These schools are the reason that that bad neighborhoods develop near these already bad quality schools (Guggenheim). These schools’ bad records are due to their bad teachers.
Each year, near to one-third of high school students drops out and do not finish their high school studies. The drop- out rates for minority students, students from low-income families, disable students and students from illegal immigrants are increasing rapidly each year. This problem is not only affecting the nucleus of the family, but it is a wide problem that the schools and the communities are facing. Our community must realize that this is a community wide problem that affects everyone. We are a community base non-profit organization.
Colleges restrict young people’s lives because after college they have debt of $50,000 or more to repay due to student loans. Furthermore college graduates are not getting jobs so paying off their loans is difficult if not impossible. A student by the name of Trina Thomas sued Monroe College because after graduation she could not get a job although she had her degree. These problems are part of why many teenagers ask the question, what sense does it make if when we graduate we cannot get a job to repay school loans? Based on an article by Financial Contributor, Ray Martin, he asserts that a myth buster is going around for students, for instance it easy to get over-borrow money.
Although many people qualified for grants to pay for school, books & supplies without having to take out student loans. “Beginning with the president's first full month in office, February of 2009, the economy lost 4.3 million jobs in the first 13 months of his presidency. Employment spurted for much of 2010, but beginning in October of that year, America began to gain jobs” (Velshi, 2012). But for many with a working spouse or parents that are middle class income but cannot afford school are forced to use student loans to cover tuition, books and supplies and sometimes what’s left is used to help cover their bills while they are attending school. This is a growing concern because so many cannot pay the loans on top of their mortgage, food and other
If only four out of ten students are graduating in these areas there must be a substantial reason. I believe that the reason is the lack of interest in school, violence, and the low income families that live in these areas. It is known that a majority of these families are minorities. With that being said the best teachers will leave the metro school districts to teach elsewhere because the increase in violence and minorities that do not speak English. This would be considered employee discrimination because the employee will not work along with the students in the metro areas.
Unlike cultural deprivation theorists, who blame educational failure on the inadequacy of working class subculture, many other sociologists see material deprivation as the main cause of under achievement. Poverty is closely linked to educational under-achievement for example · In 2006 only 33% of children receiving free school meals gained five or more GCSE’s at A*-C, as against 61% of pupils not receiving free school meals. · According to Jan Flaherty (2004), money problems in the family were a significant factor in younger children’s non-attendance at school. · Exclusion and truancy are more likely for children from poorer families, children excluded from school are unlikely to return to mainstream education, while a third of all persistent truants leave school with no qualifications. · Nearly 90% of ‘failing’ schools are located in deprived areas.
Most christian colleges and 7 other schools offer the option as a strategy boost enrollments in tough economic times. In last fall’s survey, 62 percent said the economy affected where they enrolled. Amherst and Pomona, and other wealthy colleges have eliminated loans from financial-aid packages. Private schools with a little endowment rarely have the option and would lose students to lower-priced public universities. President Peter Samuelson, of a 3 year-old company called LRAP Association uses pooled funds to repay loans for graduates who qualify and that no more than 20 percent of participating students will need the money or for more than a few years.
This number has grown to the greatest level of people in 52 years. ß With more and more adults being laid off from jobs, the average American family is bringing about $50,000 as of 2010. ß In many cases families are more worried about if they will be about to keep their house or be able to provide food for kids. They are not and can’t wonder if they will be able to make enough money to pay for their child’s public education. Argument #3- The federal government is paying $7,500 a year to put children in America through school. ß But, right now 20 million children are currently on the Free and Reduced lunch programs provided by schools.
