Nathan Wheatley Eng 1010 11/10/11 Raised to be Lowered: The American Education System What does it mean to be educated? What does it mean to learn? Why do we, as humans, continue to pursue education? These are the questions I’ve come to contemplate as I reminisced about the way I was raised and prepared for the future here in America. I realized that my education; given that I was raised in a peaceful society, without threat of war, or starvation, or disease, should have served me much better.
I also think an excellent education is crucial because it will affect my family in one way or another. It will benefit the family I have now, and the family will have in the future. I hope to support my family financially, with the great job education will help me get, and by being a role model and educator to the children I will raise. I want to be able to answer questions my children will have, to give them knowledge and a decent education for their futures too. An education would also impact the family I have now because a nice education would give me a chance to go out into the world, get a good education somewhere to live.
The TRIO program has done a lot for me, but the greatest thing it has done for me was encouraging me to pursue a career. TRIO has continuously supported my efforts of becoming a better person by showing me that an education for a low-income Hispanic, was not impossible. The TRIO program introduced me to informational workshops such as financial aid workshops and provided university campus tours. The TRIO program has continuously showed me that you do not have to be rich to get an education. One of the biggest concerns is that they encourage students to apply for financial aid.
Conan asks Maria why he interpreters decide to help Americans. Marie answers that most of them do it not only for financial gain but also out of their loyalty to their country. They see the invasion of USA as a positive step for their country and are genuinely interested in helping rebuild it. Conan asks Tariq the same question and his reply is somehow interesting. He believed that Iraq would somewhat be a part of the USA and Americans would rebuild the entire infrastructure such that Iraqis would have the same basic services like good education, food and leisure.
The flag represents the soldiers that have fought at home and abroad to ensure that we retain the very freedoms that allow us to protest the wars that they are fighting. The flag represents all of our servicemen, not just the ones who are fighting to keep us safe today, but the heroes of WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, The Revolutionary War and even the Civil War. All of these brave soldiers fought under one form of our nation’s
While most complain about the bilingual programs being put into school, we have to think about the benefit of this as well. Most professors agree that this is a beneficial investment; children that are schooled over in Europe often times learn multiple languages, it would help the children to educate them with a foreign language (Martinez 3). While yes, immigrants in our country may sometimes cost a little bit extra money to us through taxes or to the government, for the most part it all evens out and we gain it back in some other
Our country is a super power, and we owe a part of that to immigrants from Latin America. Throughout history they have come to America seeking the American dream of freedom and a chance at a better life. They have worked in poor conditions, for little pay, farming and working in factories building things that we use every day. They take the time to learn our language, and I believe that we should show the same respect. I think Spanish classes should be mandatory, and that they should start at a young age.
If we all vowed to protect each other and our land we would have a better understanding of the military and appreciate the sacrifices that someone else made for us. America is a super power that also protects other countries. We elect our leaders and expect them to run the show, the
Charter Schools: A Better Choice for Parents The recent growth of Charter schools in America is a welcome change for many parents who want choice in education. Students and families are recognizing the real benefits Charter schools have to offer. Parents want schools that are safe, cultivate a positive attitude about learning, and best fit their children’s abilities and interests (Richwine & Heritage 2010). Charter schools are a better option than public schools because charter schools offer smaller classes, the faculty has the ability to use experimentation with different teaching methods and parents are able to be more involved in the school as a whole. Smaller class sizes are not only beneficial to students but to teachers as well.
It makes a great impact in their lives, and it helps them out in a lot. In to what they were looking for, or basically, be better. Be successful and show others many new things. How to make this country a better place, and a better economy. Back in the old days they let immigrants come into America with no problem too.
