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
Many teachers do not like “catching plagiarists and bringing them to academic justice.” As she states, it is not hard to just cite the author that originally had the information you are using (Bojar). Plagiarism is becoming a big problem in the school system. Many students do not understand what needs to be cited and what does not. The school system should teach students the proper way to cite, and they should teach them that copy and pasting is not writing a paper. According Bojar to students at the community college have a hard time juggling classes along with his or her family and a job.
Should Students Be Paid to Gain an Education? Kids should not expect to earn money to receive an education they are fortunate to have. In the New York Times article “Rewards for Students Under a Microscope” Lisa Guernsey explains that “Research suggests that rewards may work in the short term, but have damaging effects in the long term.” Children are clearly motivated for short periods of time which does not address long term educational needs and goals. In my opinion as a student I do not think we should be paid to go to school, because for hundreds of years kids have had the honor and expectation to learn. As technology advances, it seems students are becoming lazy, and losing interest in the opportunity for an education.
40 It is often said that the subjects taught in schools are too academic in orientation and that it would be more useful for children to learn about practical matters such as home management, work and interpersonal skills. To what extent do you agree or disagree? A criticism often heard these days is that the subjects taught in schools tend to be too academic, and contribute little to preparing a young person for the real-life tasks he or she will have to perform after graduation. They say that academic subjects are rooted in the past, and are not useful for solving modern problems. I disagree with this point of view for three reasons.
Bus 691 Week 6 Final paper True Freshman Leader BUS 691 Strategies in Organizational Leadership Leadership is something that most people think can’t be taught; they believe it is something that people are naturally born with but anyone who has taken this course will know otherwise. Leadership is something that can be taught, learned, but never perfected. Leadership is a learning process; with the proper dedication and guidance almost anyone can be taught to be a great leader. What most people do not understand is that there are many different types of leaders. You can’t put all leaders into one category; there are many different types of styles that leaders use.
Not many people stop to question if the information they are reading or being taught is factual. While the events Loewen points out may have some discrepancies in US History lower-learning textbooks; this does not mean all textbooks are incorrect. If anyone were to research any single US historical event he would end up finding out information he may have not been privy to through textbooks. Keep in mind, to incorporate every detail into one United States (US) History textbook is an unfathomable task. Students wouldn’t be able to carry the textbook and it would take years for teachers to deliver them information to him.
Gatto is saying that schooling is made for kids to adapt to; it has adaptive qualities, therefore there is a chance for everyone to succeed if they really want to, but it takes away from any individual thinking. Conforming is another evil of school because it makes us forced to learn things we really have no interest in and as Gatto states “its intention is to make children as alike as possible”(153). A lot of students use this excuse while they are in high school “when am I ever going to use this again in life” ill be honest I have said it before but I don't necessarily agree with these students because you need to build a base education before you figure out what you want your schooling to focus on. Kids change their minds everyday, I realized that I’m not quite sure I want to be an art major anymore, even being in the first couple of classes I knew it wasn’t for me
Williams, Lynae Boone Period: 7 1/7/12 The Reality of Life In reality, how many people actually take education seriously? Personally school systems from my perspective are not at the best they can be. The concern of all students and the education they receive seems to be very low. The law “No students left behind”, needs to be enforced more than it has been previously and as it is being enforced today. The film Waiting For Superman addressed the fact that a lot of students do not have the opportunity to get a good education, so there for students are being left behind.
Someday, I didn’t even wanted to go to school because my teachers used to use a strong punishment for students who come to class and they’re not prepared. The most difficult part was for me was pronunciation since my major was “English” and we usually don’t practice English in my country except for “ doctors” and “engineering” I had many words that couldn’t even read neither pronounce it. I think that our minds must be area or gap for choice about how to think in order to understand things well as Ho thoughtful about children’s mind in the article 2. Which of Ho’s ideas
While they can just teach not train, because “training” is often and wrongly the code word for the schooling of the poor Americans. Spayde though strongly disagrees with these assumptions as I would too. I think training and educating has the same concept and the concept is to teach. There is something called as the “in-the-streets definition of education”. That definition would insinuate that people are educated throughout their whole lifespan not just sixteen years of schooling.
