Also the 11+ exam where it allocated the students into a certain type of school they were sent to, either Grammar, Technical or Secondary Morden School, based on their results. It helped students to be categorized into schools with their working-speed and intelligence which helped push them into having a successful educational experience. The last two reform acts alternate around each other; the beginning of comprehensive schools at 1960s where all students go to same schools regardless of their ability, allowed the minister of education to introduce the Baker Act in 1988. They aimed to improve educational institutions for a better educational experience for all students by raising standards, called Marketisation.

I believe that Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Rush sparked the ideas for the future, with Horace Mann as the engineer who created the mold of the two ideas into a whole common idea. Structure and discipline for the child in school will bring a well-rounded American.

There are numerous facts and findings on how school uniforms positively and completely enrich students’ school experience. School uniforms should be mandated in the United States from kindergarten to twelfth grade allowing our children to focus on their education and not their social environment. Uniforms are just one avenue we can take to attempt to improve our schools and raise student achievement. “According to the School Administrator publication, along with school reported statistics, the mandate of uniforms on campuses has reduced tardiness, skipped classes, suspensions, and discipline referrals” (Chen 1). All of these findings are extremely conductive of how mandating school uniforms would greatly improve our student’s ability to improve their school experience.
The first functionalist concept, one will be testing out is the Equality of Opportunity. This means that all students regardless of class, gender and ethnicity are seen as equally important by the school and are all given equal chance to succeed. The functionalist Durkheim says schools stress the importance of equal opportunities. In juxtaposition Marxists would say that this is a form of brainwashing. Working class children are told they have the same chances to succeed as everyone else so when they do badly they have no-one else to blame but themselves.

It is about a fundamental shift in philosophy and approach that embraces the role of parents and communities and supports them with engaging, high quality services that meet their needs.
