Nobody denies that many people come to the United State with hope for a better future, with hope for a better quality of life, with hope for better education for their children which they did not receive. Many people from around the world migrate to the United States, some migrate legally and some do not. Tricia Andryszewski stated “nearly nine million people immigrated during 1980’s”(121). People who migrate legally are welcome in the States, on the contrary people who migrated illegally to the States are not welcomed and do not receive any benefits. They are excluded from the society and are neglected.
I wonder what percentage of those students who didn’t get accepted withdrew the opportunity themselves because they couldn’t afford it once they got accepted. There can be so many reason why the school doesn’t accept 10K students a semester; by the way who wants to learn with another 1,000 students in the classroom. Beres doesn’t take the time to elaborate on different factors that come with college admission but instead attacks the College Board for no apparent reason. He has a valid claim that yes students’ needs to be given the chance, but lacks the supporting warrants he could have made. Instead of bashing the College Board about the common app he could have made a valid case by questioning the rising of college tuition which is a main factor that students aren’t
If the slum residents want to attend the ninth grade and beyond, then they would have to pay for a private school. This is not possible for a lot of these people. College is even more unthought of because how competitive it is. Since school is not required the majority of the parents do not want to send their children because they believe that they would be better off helping the family sort through garbage. For example Abdul’s parents took him out of school in order to replace his father as a garbage sorter when his father became ill with tuberculosis.
We need to do something to help the minors who did not have a choice of coming over here, but just followed their parents. If these minors are here in the U.S and thriving for an education or serve our country why not give them a path to citizenship. It is not easy as immigrant to stay focus and achieve what you want in life. The more immigrants that become legal they would pay taxes and our deficit would go down in the long run. Until the government decides what to do, we are going to be in this recession.
This quote caught my attention because as a child who grew up with an absent father, I felt this essay really got to the heart of the problem that many children faces now a day. I was lucky in knowing my father's decision not to have anything to do with me growing up was because he resented paying support. I wish I could believe parents left for altruistic reasons, but I think those are just excuses. If they really feared screwing up their kids they could take classes, they could learn to be parents, take anger management classes. Simply, they cannot be arsed to bother.
College takes a great deal of money, and he did not have the money. Furthermore, his alcoholic mother is unable to send him to college because she lacks the finical ability to do so. When Richi says, “My plans, maybe just my dreams really, had been to go to college, and to write. All the other guys in the neighborhood thought I was going to college. I wasn’t, and the army was the place I was going to get away from all the questions”, this illustrates that Richi is
I can’t always be dependent on someone. Quarles learned how to be independent from his brother leaving foster care a few months after their aunt put them back in foster care. His brother leaving him alone in foster care showed him how to be independent. I can also learn how to budget/ save money from Quarles. After bouncing from home to home Derrius Quarles ended up on his own at age 17.
“’It’s important to know where you came from… we don’t have a history. Our history begins the day we were adopted into a new family,’ said MacNish.” Adoptees have been effected by not being able to know who their birth parents are. There is a sort of hole in their existence without that information. They believe that without their birth records their birth parents still have a control over their lives even though they gave up that right when they put their child up for adoption. MacNish states “that it’s not about his birth mother’s privacy, but about his right to his own history.” Another argument Suzette Parmley, Inquirer Staff Writer, writes about in, “A New Push to Open Adoption Files,” is that the release of birth records is needed to find medical history of an adoptee.
These concerns were rooted in the fact that most of the parents never experienced this type of freedom at their age and didn’t know how to empathize with their children anymore. Another major concern is that parents didn’t know if teens would outgrow this rebellious phase of their lives and grow up because never before were their a teenager before who knew what these rebellious kids would turn out like. In conclusion the teenage culture of the 1950s was a reaction to all the new freedoms granted to kids along with the influence of popular culture and the money in their wallets to spend on themselves. Parents were initially concerned of the well being of teens but as time passed by teenage life is an accepted
As a person who came to America very little, it was hard to identify myself as who I was. I came into the United States when I was 6 months old, and my parents were just married. Going through elementary school and middle school it was hard for me to figure out who I was, or where I stand. I believe that people who move to the United States make an effort to integrate with the larger society. Having a group of people move to our country and isolate their selves really doesn't benefit us or them.
