How does money affect a person’s intelligence? If a family is fairly wealthy, they are more likely to be able to sufficiently fund resources and materials to help their child’s education, for example; being able to afford their child to have a placement at a private school. Although the teaching standards at a public school may be just as high as the teaching standards at a private school, private schools also tend to enforce stricter rules, which therefore means that those who have a low attendance or a poor behaviour, are less likely to be allowed to educate there, and the school may only allow students that are focused on their education. Also, upper class and middle class students may perform better because things such as educational trips or text books can easily be paid for. Those students that are of working class or lower class may not perform as well in exams as those that are in middle and upper classes as they may not have sufficient funds to pay for things such as educational trips and text books.
Childminders, Look after children under 12 in the childminder's own home. They can look after up tp six children under eight years old, although no more than three of them must be aged under five. Children develope quickly in the early years and every child deserves the best possible start in life. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework set the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept heathy and safe and ensure that children have the knowledge and skills they need to start school.

A child is usually with their parents for three to five years before they enter into the public schools. Those three to five years are crucial in a child’s life. Their parents have already molded and shaped many ideals and beliefs their child will subconsciously have forever. I agree with the reading in regards to the statement that, “social and cultural practices of a family are key considerations in the family literacy program.” I think that students learn best when it’s associated to prior knowledge. If an instructor or program allowed for students to learn based on the home’s cultural views, the child would more than likely understand the material better and also do better in school.
Many sociologists in the 1960’s saw differences in primary socialisation as the main reason for class differences in attainment. In a large – scale study of British children entitled The Home and The School; J.W.B. Douglas (1964) claimed that middle class children received more attention and encouragement from their parents during their early years. This provided a foundation for high attainment in their later years. Based on questionnaires given to over 5 000 parents, Douglas concluded that the degree of parents’ interest in
It is said that children from a middle class background are more likely to do better than children from a working class background. One of the main arguments is because working class children are culturally deprived. Being culturally deprived means that you are deprived from the values needed for school for you to succeed. Being culturally deprived can affect a child’s education as they’re more likely to disagree with the schools system, making them not pay attention or wanting to learn. This can cause them to drop out and not Finnish there education so they would only being able to get a working class job.
Although parents would like to keep their kids close to them as much as they could, the best option however, is to always think about what would be best for the child, depending on who they would feel more comfortable around. Most people think that going to public school for a public education would be better, statistics show that home schooling is beneficial in more ways. According to Teen Scene, home schooling grows at a rate that is about 11 percent each year. In 1994, it was said that only 340,000 children were being home schooled. In 2001, that number had grown to about 1.7 million.

Lauren Peterson Kathryn Kruger English 151: 032 11 December 2009 Home-Schooling: Hurtful or Helpful? Home-schooling, when chosen for the right reasons and implemented in a correct way, can be an effective means of educating children. But is it in the best intentions of the child? Home-schooling is becoming more popular every day, with a growth rate of seven to fifteen percent each year. There are about two million children currently being educated at home in the United States (Pitman and Van Galen 4).
Public school allows more interaction and socializing with other children, while home schooling concentrates on the how child progresses educationally, as the needs of the child are met. It is the goal of the parent home schooling to see their child succeed. Many parents would want to home school the child because of a hundred percent involvement in the child’s education, this is a major decision for any parent, but I know most parents wants to know how much their child is progressing on a daily basis, what are they learning and knowing they are a part of their child’s education. Most parents think it might be expensive to home school but it is not, most learning material can easily be found online for free. There is a famous quote by John F. Kennedy “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” As a parent, people around us might view home schooling as better especially those that home schooled as a child growing up.
They also help students develop better people-skills, as well as teach them how to act in a real-life situation, such as a job. Single-sex education does not educate girls and boys any better than coed schools, according to research published by the American Psychological Association analyzing 184 studies of more than 1.6 million students from around the world. Many people believe that separating boys and girls in schools would help them focus better on academics, but studies prove that this is not the case. Also, schools are supposed to prepare students for the “real world”, as well as jobs, and both have both sexes. Researchers also looked at studies that examined coed schools that offered single-sex instruction in certain subjects and found no significant benefits for boys or girls in these cases.
