This is why teaching financial literacy in high school will benefit the students later in their life. Secondly, the people who lack the financial literacy skills do not tend to save or plan for their future retirement. This is because they do not know how to make a financial plan, so they cannot plan their retirement and they have to depend on government pension because they are not self-reliant. Because of the lack of knowledge they do not save money and even if they save they do not know how to invest the money wisely. So
Low income will mean that parents will be unable afford educational books or tutoring in order to help the student pass. Although a criticism of his research would be that it was performed years ago and now changes to the education system have been made to counter act such material differences such as free after school study which means that students
Also, the lack of a balanced diet can lead to absences from school and can cause them to loose concentration in class due to hunger. Having a low income affects educational achievement in several ways such as lack of educational materials such as books and computers with internet access, lack of the appropriate uniform, and inability to afford school trips that help develop further knowledge. Cultural deprivation and material deprivation have a common link that explains how they affect educational achievement. In Item A we read that children of parents in the higher social classes are already further up the scale of educational development from as early as 22 months. Bourdieu shows how both factors link together to produce class inequalities in achievement using the cultural capital theory.
Working class children are less likely to succeed because they are less likely to be found in nursery schools, less likely to go to university and more likely to be poor readers when they start school, more likely to be in lower sets and streams in secondary school, more likely to leave school early, more likely to underachieve at GCSEs and a level, more likely to be excluded and suspended .This is because the middle-class culture children are adequately prepared for school, but it's totally reverse for working-class culture, it basically fails to prepare children adequately for educational success. It is often said that intellectual development is vital in the younger years of a child life, this refers to a child's ability to solve problems and apply concepts and ideas. Bernstein and Young argue that Middle-class families will be able to afford toys that stimulate the mind, books and pre educational essentials, whereas the working class may struggle to buy such equipment, and therefore have a disadvantage compared to the Middle-class family. Language is also associated with a child's progress. Early socialisation is what gives children this manor of speech and Bernstein argues it makes children feel at home, in a school surrounding and allows children to express themselves clearly and efficiently.
2). Instead of searching for a better educational environment, students look for better tests numbers. Lang Wood goes on by stating “Students can easily become discouraged and negative about education in general, which affects their learning ability” (par. 2). In addition to what Lang Wood believes, Stephens claims, students who are taking the test suffer from stress in result of worrying about passing it.
In cases of that it might be best for scores to be kept private, known just to parents and the student. Intelligence tests can also mess with students self esteem. If a student is a poor test taker and does poorly on an intelligence test it can mess with their self esteem and make them feel horrible. Their grades might suffer and it could lead to depression. Precautions are needed so students are not harmed by a test that might not have been necessary to begin
Payne stated that students should learn the “hidden rules” of the middle class from their educators so that they have another set of rules to use if they choose to do so. Impoverished students, compared to students of middle or upper class, often have a lack of proper funding, thus, a lack of appropriate resources to use in their education. Due to this, they are often unprepared for school, not having the money to purchase books and other educational tools. Both authors realize this, but argue that the responsibility lies on different shoulders. Payne states that impoverished students face inequality at school, insinuating that the school should be responsible for helping to provide for these students so that they can have a better education.
In today’s society poverty and oppression go hand in hand. The poor are oppressed by society because they do not have the resources to prepare themselves to compete in a job market. For example, South Central Los Angeles is an oppressed area because people do not have proper education. Schools in this area are overcrowded and the teachers do not teach the way they should. Students are deprived and oppressed of a quality education because the district does not have the money to invest on the kids’ education; unlike in other school districts in wealthier areas where the class sizes are smaller the teaching quality is considerably better.
Waiting for the Superior Hero In the film, they revealed how bad teachers are often transferred from one school to another. This can be seen as a rotation cycle which is not turning out well for the public school system as well for the students. The reason being why a school lets a teacher go is because they discover that they are not doing their job efficiently which leads students to not learning. When students do not learn at least the basics of education, then they do not meet the state standards and cannot enter the next grade level. With this in mind, administrators are stuck trying to figure out what in the world are they doing wrong.
If they are labelled as being ‘stupid’ early on in their career then they will be placed in the lower sets and streams. This means that they will not have access to the full range of courses available to them and this an effect their A level or degree choices. Sociologists would also agree by explaining that anti school subcultures may occur. These are groups of students who feel that they have been failed by education and stop trying or
