Recently, today actually, I saw an article of a video on Facebook that detailed simple questions posed to university students regarding BASIC social and historic facts, events and the people who govern our country. The outcomes were astounding to express the smallest amount of! Abject failure and an inability to name or identify ANY of the people, places and events. I’d like to repeat… NONE.
The formal education system in the U.S. was designed to meet up the demands of the industrial revolution by giving basic education to the masses. Pretty simple right? So how come it that people fail to acknowledge or refuse to acknowledge that the demands will vary today? There has not been a calculable redefinition or evolution of the educational system since. This is scary since it will define the failure of our country step-by-step and bit-by-bit until we’re reduced to a cultural assortment of ignorance.
Let’s examine the cause and solutions.
1. Closed for Business!
Schools find their existence tied to community standards and financial restraints based on the community support… or lack of. Comprar titulo universitario The effect is that schools are closing at an alarming rate over the country. Your choice to close a school rarely reflects the wants of a residential district or, most importantly, the wants of the students!
There seems to be less concern for the wants of the communities children’s education compared to the economic demands of the precise location of the school or the resources available. Where’s the federal government when this happens? Well, they’re partially to blame. The us government rhetoric details the need for affordable, quality education while they demand that school systems stick to specific federal mandates that tie the school administration’s hands to conform to political wants. So much for federal support.
2. Two-Gallons of milk in a one-gallon jug!
So, exactly how many kids would you cram into a classroom and still teach effectively? That is dependent upon if you are looking to instruct the youngsters or be considered a daycare service. I know, pretty harsh but go through the function of schools today. They take your children and house them and feed them for around 6-7 hours a day. Mostly providing them with basic discipline and food which they rarely obtain a t home! Oh yes, admin it. Teachers are needed to discipline your children in a crowded atmosphere where safety is no further guaranteed and education has a back seat to providing basic needs that parents are unwilling to, uneducated to or unable to provide. Wait, what about education? Well, there’s so short amount of time for that that caring for them takes priority over teaching them.
Secondarily, due to the constraints of federally-mandated guidelines, the youngsters are taught in a cookie-cutter style standard of personality-limiting, creative-minimizing and individually-restrictive processes to get them to their adulthood. Basic education with basic performance that aligns children to basic standards that align with everyone else’s basic needs. Sad as it is done in crowded classrooms where teachers are forced to “teach” more children than one person could attend to. How effective is that?
3. If You Do What You’ve Always Done… You’ll Get What You’ve Always Gotten!
How do we expect our youngsters to excel when their parents are minimally educated. One must understand that this cycle of poor education will produce more poorly educated children who will produce more poorly-educated children and etc and so on. Parents are very busy struggling to make a living today due to a poor economy or a lack of opportunity that there surely is little time for you to attend to their children’s education in the home let alone at school. Involvement can also be critical especially once the parents are minimally educated since they lack the foresight and experience to steer a young person to the best path. The effect is a continually-repeated system that fails students and undermines this country’s future. It matters not if you are poor and struggling to make a living that doesn’t permit time for you to teach the kids in the home OR whether your well off and struggle to keep up a vocation that doesn’t permit time for you to attend to the kids at home. In any event, the education suffers.
4. Once Stated Always Abated!
I was once told that I was stupid. I was told that I could never learn because I lacked the basic ability to comprehend or comprehend anything that a normal person was likely to know. Could you imagine? Well, today I’m in search for a doctorate in education. Highly educated holding several degrees and formally recognized for my teaching abilities and performance being an educator. So there, take that!
If a young child is to be challenged then the kid has to acknowledge their worth and value being an individual. EVERY child is talented and gifted in something and must certanly be recognized for it immediately and consistently. Oh yes, failure happens but that’s area of the lesson as well. Individualized learning platforms and initiatives are essential to the support and future of educational success. The talented and gifted programs require that a child be recognized and advanced for their special gift instead of the initiative being offered to ALL students. I think that EVERY child has the chance to reveal their gift if given the chance to let it reveal itself. Why limit other children’s chance to excel because someone didn’t recognize their talents? Beyond me.
This insufficient diversity in basic education is driven by personal prejudices and the nuances of social conformity and economic availability in a school district. Shameful that every student doesn’t have exactly the same chance to be recognized because of their inevitable contribution to society.
5. There exists a Step to the Prep!
Based on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Education Department, 80% of most students graduate and student graduation rates are in an all-time high. This sounds great doesn’t it? Well, no it doesn’t because about 80% of senior school seniors cannot pass basic proficiency exams or read at a simple level. The fundamental and core foundation for an effective future lies in their ability to read and comprehend and it’s failing miserably. Due to a politically-correct mindset and an unwillingness to admit that people are failing we’re passing kids without prejudice. What is the dynamic here? Money, acknowledgment, standards, social constraint?
With fewer than 40% of graduating students able to execute basic reading and math skills, what’ll their future look like? Poor at best as they are put up for failure and aren’t educated enough to learn it. They are not prepared for any part of life let alone future education without the basic skills to learn. This indicates a path to socialism.
6. Teacher to Preacher!
With the lack of people that are willing to sacrifice their future for low-paying academic careers there’s little to choose from in how of well-educated teachers. Enter teachers. As student education becomes more technology-supported so must teacher innovation education. A once-proud career, teachers are deciding on more industrial careers utilizing their basic educational achievements as it pays more and is less restricting. Deficiencies in qualified teachers means a lack of quality education from under qualified teachers. The cultural shift in classrooms demands an academic shift in recognizing and utilizing qualified teachers who must meet higher-level standards before being permitted to teach.
Alas, distance learning take the personalization from the procedure, individualism from the practice and enables lesser-educated teachers to execute office-like academics in place of teaching-like practices. Poorly educated teachers that are not held to the greatest standards will produce poorly-educated students who will perpetuate the same. Pay teachers better and demand more from their store and we will produce quality educated people. There is something askew when ball players make millions and teachers make nothing! Time and energy to rethink this one.
