The percentage of high school drop outs in United States is very high, and some these students that drop out end up in prison or other terrible places such as drug dealing or gangs. In the documentary they also showed some schools with a lot of gang activity and gang violence. Parents of these students work very hard to pay taxes and keep there children in school, in hop that there children will get a good education. Some parents take tons of loans so they can send there kids to a private school, because the public schools are not teaching there students well. These hard working parents and dedicated teachers all want to see America with a brighter future, they are doing what they can to make sure that there children grow up to be important part of a good generation.
SB 1070 grants law enforcement officers the power to determine the immigration status of an individual, who they suspect to be an illegal alien, when there is “reasonable suspicion”. It requires individuals to carry immigration papers and declares that it is a crime if they do have these required documents when needed. SB 1070 grants law enforcement officers the ability to transfer suspected aliens to federal custody. The law also prohibits local police agencies from passing policies that limit or restrict enforcement of federal immigration laws. Legal residents of Arizona are granted the option to sue if they feel a local agency’s policies interfere with the enforcement of federal immigration law.
Source 16 supports the statement by saying ‘In 1870, the Government made elementary education up to the age of 13 compulsory for all children.’ This shows that by opening education to all children aged 13 and below, they had approached the problem of uneducated children especially boys from falling into lower classes. Source 17 also agrees, ‘Before 1870, education was not compulsory and it was not free.’ The government had then opened a branch for the lower classes to become educated and somehow improve their quality of life. By opening up school board and creating new schools, it meant that fees were eventually to be taken off, when after the 1902 education act, schools that were receiving state funding had to offer 25% of all places without fees. Gladstone the prime minister at the time believed in equality of opportunity, so over the coming years, showed open support about children receiving open education for all ages. He openly says about passing the political power to an uneducated nation and improving people’s quality of life, therefore showing support.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Illegal Immigration is reaching epidemic proportions in many American States and cities. The American Government and its politicians at all levels of government are failing to perform the very basic fundamentals of their elected post, to protect and defend its citizens. The United States is being invaded by nearly 20 million illegal immigrants who are over taxing public services, the cost of which are staggering. The population and the cost to the American tax payer are nearly equal to Illinoi, America’s 5th most populated state. What American’s politicians fail to realize is that the border security itself is much like the tip of an iceberg, the greater problem is the remaining 90% of the immigration
State Lottery vs. Public Schools The purpose of this essay is to find information through research, using data, and findings to conclude that State Legalized Gambling (lottery) is not aiding in the development or future growth of public schools as it’s sole purpose was intended; “To Fund Public Education”. Every parent wants the best for their children. Each day thousands of children k-12 is attending public schools in America. In the early 60’s, I remember nutritious school lunches, after school programs, drama classes, home economics, wood shop and auto mechanics just to name a few. Teachers were proud to teach children their lessons, and children were always eager to learn.
For instance, illegal immigrants who don’t usually bring their children with them, and would normally have their children enrolled in American schools still pay education taxes, this keeps the economy going. Also, these immigrants fill low wage jobs. Another problem that
Alexis Smiley Dr. Lowe EH 101-119 December 3, 2012 The Importance of Quality Education The article “In Defense of Elitism”, by William A. Henry III., talks about how he does not agree with letting every student into a college and they do not meet the main requirements as those students who are putting effort forth towards their education. Henry thinks that the schools should raise its standards. He also believes that democracy should demand that all citizens have an equal opportunity, but thinks the egalitarians are taking it too far by insisting all should finish equally. Henry's aversion contends that people cannot learn until they think they can do it; therefore, the starting point of education should build within the individual.
Even worse 24% of the nation’s poor in Mexico lives in extreme poverty, on less than 1 dollar per day. Approximately 104 million Mexicans fit into these categories. It is no wonder that so many Mexicans try to enter the United States illegally. Many of them know that they will make more in one hour in the United States than they would make in a day in Mexico. There is also the impact on our economy.
Klain (2013) stated, “The government is hurting the [economy] recovery, and badly. But it’s not because it’s spending too much, or because of concerns over future policy. It’s because government, at all levels, is spending and investing too little.” (Grounds) 4. Opposition I: Government should not give Financial Aid to Mexicans. Mexicans might leave the country later.
(“Immigration: In the Vanguard”, 1999, p. 32) In simplest terms illegal aliens are illegal and like any crime their presence must be controlled. Moreover, their presence and employment is manifestly unjust as they are taking resources and opportunities from legitimate citizens. Therefore, it is essential that the government continue to police illegal immigration and commits resources to that task. In the words of President Clinton, “We must say no to illegal immigration so we can continue to say yes to legal immigration.” (“Immigration Reform: The Issues”, p.
