Attitude, Legislation, and Litigation Even though students with disabilities are now entitle to an education, social implication of attitude, legislation, and litigation effected the lives of students with disabilities because students with disabilities miss out on opportunities and the right to an education. The social implication of attitude on the lives of students with disabilities have change over time. In the past students with disabilities was view in a negative way making where they miss out on many opportunities such as obtaining an education. Now these students are gaining an education and being view as unique. The Civil Right Movement brought about legislation in preventing prejudice towards people with disabilities allowing them the right to an education.
In examining the impact of adversity we are measuring against what constitutes children’s needs and well-being. Children’s well-being is founded in a holistic view, acknowledging the significance of supporting the whole child. This holistic approach toward children seeks to simultaneously address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of a child’s life. However, whilst a general consensus on children’s needs and well-being is attainable, notions of the child and childhood differ across culture, time and place, whereby concepts of appropriate education, work and play are rooted in cultures and societies, as Woodhead et al, (2003, p.2) discuss. Adversity refers to circumstances or incidents, which fail to meet the required needs of the child, endanger their well-being or infringe upon their rights.
Many EMG children also do not have that initial push of how important education is for them. They may have a fatalistic view on where they see themselves fitting into to society which may rub on to their children. Sugarman did a lot of research on this and found it as being one of the top reasons why children can fail in education. Children who believe their future is already predetermined will not put as much focus on education as they think they will only get working-class jobs. As parents may be new to the UK or not speak English they may not understand the educational system and the application process.
In 1870 it became compulsory for all children to receive an education which provides children with equal opportunities. The introduction of these laws has ultimately created a child centred society. However the conflict sociologists argue that the march of progress view has failed to recognise the massive inequalities that still exist in childhood. They say that many children today remain unprotected and badly cared for. There are also various factors such as social class and gender that affect the treatment and experiences of children.
Criteria: The criterion is to inform the reader that although children have disabilities they need to be treated the same as normal children. Many children get bullied because they are viewed as different, but little do they know that they were born with disabilities. Children with disabilities may need help when it comes to schoolwork or
Special Education is designed to support and to serve children with disabilities. In theory, eligible students are to receive specialized instructions by teacher with specific training, tutoring, and extra attention from teachers, counselors, and other professional support staff. Since, Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) was passed it has brought benefits to students who were not previously served in this country. Despite the improvements from the laws, the benefits of special education have not been distributed correctly. Inappropriate practices in both general and special education programs have resulted in overrepresentation, misclassification, and hardship for minority students.
Key elements of effective practice within YOTs are assessment, planning and supervision as these are seen to be essential for ensuring that young people’s needs are met and also to reduce offending and reoffending (Burke 2008). In 1993 Moffitt produced a theory of developmental taxonomy, he believed there were noticeable differences between adolescence-limited and life –course-persistent antisocial behaviour. Some children behave antisocially in a temporary and situational way which is very common during adolescence, however, some behaviour will be persistent and stable although it is only a small number that fall into this classification.
Serious Challenges Facing Public Education Today Not many would argue about the importance of excellence in education. Problems such as teacher attrition, lack of parent involvement, and teaching high-stakes testing may hinder progress in education. They are only a few of many major issues facing American education, and educators are challenged to do everything in their power to conquer them. An education is a indispensable and essential tool, and it’s important to get our students to value their education. An education can open doors to opportunities that would have never been possible were it not for the education and preparation that one received while in school.
Children Benefit from Inclusion Classrooms Harmony L. Sturdevant ENG/102 May 19, 2013 Melissa Gardner Would someone be pleased if they had a special needs child that was excluded from experiencing a regular classroom setting because of their disability? Would they want their child to be treated fairly and not be considered an outcast when they are placed on an Individual Education Plan (IEP)? If the answer is no to both questions, then people should consider and appreciate the rights of children with disabilities and how effective an inclusion classroom environment is to children. Children on Individual Education Plans benefit from being in an inclusion classroom because they are helping peers and teachers to understand diversity and are given an opportunity to be treated equally without disrupting a regular classroom setting. Inclusion classrooms were developed to help a child with special needs become a part of a regular classroom that is the least restrictive as possible.
Homeschooling also offers parents the opportunity to spend more time focusing on subjects they feel their child needs improvement on. Not only are they able to put more importance on certain subjects, but it also opens windows for exposure to a variety of activities that public education may not provide. In adolescence children seem to be more susceptible to peer pressure. This pressure can often lead to not only drug use and violence, but sexual activity as well. With high teen pregnancy rates, the lack of social exposure with homeschooling appeals to concerned parents.
