Instead they believed that marketisation will produce schools to run more efficiently like a business therefore schools will have to compete against each other to attract the consumers, by showing them what they want to see- such as outstanding success in exams. There have been many polices introduced to promote marketisation such as: league tables, open enrolment, formula funding and educational vouchers. On the other hand despite the benefits of marketisation, critics argued that it has increased inequalities within social class, gender and ethnicity. Ways in which marketisation reproduced and legitimises inequality is through league tables and funding. Publishing schools exams results in league tables ensure that the school has to achieve phenomenal results if they want to attract likes of the consumers.
The high cost of the college books is not only an issue in the United States, it has affected the students worldwide. Students from every country have been fronting the similar topic regarding the cost of the text books. Due to the advanced technology in education, it is not affordable for the colleges as well to provide the books to students free of cost. There are numerous reasons and the solutions to the issue of overpriced text book. In this essay, I seek to argue that students should pay their textbook fees without depending upon the schools.
Also stated was that Presidents of colleges were being overpaid. They go on to say Colleges shouldn't have to pay more to get a qualified President to run their school. The President should be pleased with a modest salary and if they aren’t then they probably don't need to have the title anyhow. Another suggestion was that spin-off schools preoccupy faculties and school presidents. They state that it takes away the much needed attention
Sainsbury's is a hierarchical organisation. One of Sainsbury's aims is to make shopping more quick and effortless for customers. In order to find out how this can be done the marketing and research department has to look into this case. By doing this Sainsbury's are able to meet their targets. As Sainsbury's have a hierarchical structure they are most likely to lose a lot of money because for the marketing and research and development departments to carry out their functions they would need funding from the finance department.
Vedder opens by stating that financial assistance programs are complex, costly, not efficient, and they do not work for what they are intended. He feels that they are dysfunctional and are one of the worst among federal programs in which there are many that he declares are bad. Vedder says that there are three common grounds that the government uses to rationalize the existence of these financial assistance programs. The first is that making sure that more young people go to college will have a positive effect for our country. According to Vedder this is an almost impossible claim to measure and the money spent on higher education through these programs exceeds the economic growth.
A Refutation of “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus set out on a mission to answer the question of “Are colleges worth the price of admission?” They argue that colleges are taking on too many roles and doing none of them well, losing track of the basic mission to challenge the minds of young people. One of the many problems, they claim, is that students are enrolling in too many vocational majors instead of the liberal arts such as philosophy, literature and the physical sciences. Not only do they title this claim “Make students use their minds”, they proceed to further slight vocational majors by stating: “We’d like to persuade them that supposedly impractical studies are a wiser use of college and ultimately a better investment. The undergraduate years are an interlude that will never come again, a time to liberate the imagination and stretch one’s intellect without worrying about a possible payoff.” (180). This is self-contradictory in itself.
Minority Struggle In Minority Education in Comparative Perspective by John U. Ogbu addresses an issue of minority students having a problem achieving educational parity to whit dominant groups. Ogbu confronts the issue of immigrant and involuntary minorities and the difference between the two. Involuntary minorities resist education because they had a negative experience with education and were labeled as dumb and lazy. Immigrant minorities cherish their education more because they feel that American education will help them succeed in life. I will argue that involuntary minorities desire an education; however the banking system limits their chance to move ahead in education.
The former Education Secretary Michael Gove said the government would reform the system: "The system that we have inherited is very damaging. It is unfair for children and it is harming the economy.” The most thorough and generally accepted investigation commissioned by ministers is The Wolf report1 which was completed in March 2011. The review conclude that the vocational and further education is not good enough and recommends a radical shake-up. According the report, the current funding system encourages colleges to put students through a lot of qualifications - but not to continue to improve their core skills in English and maths if these are lacking. Professor Wolf says funding for
Even if, it provides free education still the question lies where the government gets its funds. The most obvious answer is by increasing tax, which once again would be a bigger blow on the people. Apart from these, free university education would also result in deteriorating the quality of education. It will be difficult not only to provide best facilities like library full of varied books, laboratories, equipments etc, but it would also be highly challenging to provide the apt amount of salary to the staff and teachers. As a consequence of lesser remuneration lesser
So we need such a new process of examination that can certify the student or learner's knowledge. | Rate this: +0 -0 | Niha said: (Mon, Jul 16, 2012 08:34:07 PM) | | | | In my opinion examination has killed education because every one has a individual talent but they cannot implement it. Only mug up and writing do not help them to shine. Some do have talent in other activities. Our education system should help us to blow out of us.
