Carrasquillo & Rodriguez, Chapter 1 New York State Education Department, Chapter 2 Regardless of language, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, students from bilingual, ESL and LEP programs are assigned to mainstreamed classrooms in the United States. A thoughtful and appropriate mainstream classroom can provide a unique, progressive and cooperative learning environment for ESL, ELL and bilingual students. However, if educators disregard the significance of comprehending learning needs of linguistically diverse students, the corresponding environment can be destructive and unfair. Teachers need to commit to helping empower these students to be confident not only in literacy development but in different content areas. In order
They believe that education can help socialise children through religious assemblies, the National Curriculum and citizenship lessons. The New Right wants educational policies that will increase choice with market principles to raise standards. If a school is successful, it will attract parents and children purely because it is successful. The New Right believes that all parents have the right to send their child to a successful school â hence their support of parental choice. The New Right also believes that a successful school will gather sufficient momentum to build on its successes.

I would want to have done the same things once I have my own classroom and I feel fairly passionate for students to understand and develop tolerance towards people who may be different than themselves. I feel that as teachers, we can take action to really mold our students to grow and be better individuals living in this world. I really do believe that issues in the matter of race/ethnicity and culture has to do with educating oneself of these things and practicing the basic matters a person should carry with themselves. I really think that these issues need to be discussed in depth when students are young and continuously because it is harder for one’s mind to see the wrong in something they believed was right for most of their
A sensible idea indeed: America is no doubt a society of diverse cultures, and this diversity is increasing every instant. The upcoming generation requires more skills to live and communicate in this ilk of society. Studying other cultures in school time can be of great help in this regard. Firstly, the motive of school education is not to produce career oriented students, but to produce better human beings who can live and share the world with others on better terms. Keeping this in mind, students should be made to study subjects that can help them understand their surroundings, and their neighbors.

There are many options to examine when choosing a preschool program for a child to attend, considering every program has a different philosophy for teaching students. One of the most efficient preschool programs is the Montessori approach. While the Traditional preschool program has the most students enrolled in the United States, the Montessori program has a more academically, socially, and emotionally beneficial structured learning environment, and should be the new “Traditional” program approach. A study for the
Andrew Martin (2000) argues that technological advancements have greatly upsurges the developmental of the nation as whole, in fact this technological advancement is initiated with the educational system. The practicality of skills taught within either private or public schools could entirely determine the future success of an understudy. In fact, Martin’s suggestion exemplifies the functionalist perspective on education. Additionally, as determined by Martin’s studies more students both from private and public schools are crucially targeting to pursue more practical courses such as law in their college years. Perhaps, this should provoke the thoughts on to whether either the private or public schools are providing the understudies with the necessary skills and knowledge that would determine their future successes.
In order to provide students with the best education imaginable that would enable them to prosper, it is necessary to combine, or balance, both technological and traditional methods of teaching in the school environment. Traditional methods of teaching are vital to the prosperity of America’s youth because they stress the importance of individualism and independence that is a required trait in the real world. Two of the most controversial teaching styles stressed through traditional methods of teaching are working amongst one another in small groups versus working independently. In today’s economy, there are numerous jobs that require group work in order to benefit not only the individuals but also the work force as a whole by providing a more competent and united front. While group work may be beneficial in certain aspects of the learning environment, group work demotes the sense of identity that is required to stand out in the global job market, or college for the matter.
