AIM: To provide information and sources in order to understand the perspective of the inequalities within higher education and it’s impacts on society in regard to politics and income.
Also, tertiary education has quite low worldwide education participation rates; generally in developing countries the amount of people in tertiary is not high. Social class has a large amount to do with this. Poverty is one of the main factors preventing people form attending university. Although gender intersects with participation in education around the globe, the WDR 2012 Team found that, “In most countries with moderate or high total inequality in educational outcomes, less than one-fifth of inequality stems from gender”. Non-attendance instead, has to do more primarily with rural residence or poverty.
It is important to spread awareness about this global issue of women’s education rights because with basic education the quality of life for their entire community increases. When researching for my last paper, I learned that birth rates and death rates increase when women are educated. There is also a direct correlation between educating women and a decrease in women dying from physical abuse. Increasing research in this topic can improve the lives of women and their communities.
A common saying in our society is that education is the great equalizer. However, in modern American society, it is just as common to find areas with unequally funded schools and are known for being hearths for perpetual poverty cycles. If education is supposed to place willing students on an equal playing field with success as the goal, why is it not equally funded across the country? Inequalities in educational funds tend to detrimentally impact the lives of students from low-income families. Aiding those students’ to earn less than students from well-funded institutions in wealthy areas. Leading them to be more likely to take on low-income jobs in unspecialized labor for the majority of their life. The effects of such inequity can be seen through economic, social, and futuristic Perspective.
Gender roles involving education could potentially be hurting countries in Africa. A country’s development is based off providing a good education. When both men and women are equipped with learning and shared decisions, the productivity of a society rises. It is very important for women to be educated along with men because this also improves the health of a nation.
The last global gender gap report in 2014 that studied the gender gap , reported that 30 percent of 142 countries that was monitored is this report are losing the gains they have made on education (world Economic Forum, 2014). Opportunities for education are often denied for women and girls in the devolving countries. Low exist to education limits prospects, decreases family income reduces health, puts women and girls at risk of trafficking and exploitation, and limits the economic advancement of the entire countries. The education of all global monitoring report 2014 studied gender inequality in education
Although education should be the way out of poverty and inequality, there is the evidence that still, ‘graduates who went to private schools earn substantially more than those who went to state schools’ (The Institute for Fiscal Studies, 2014). The gap was quite substantial as it amounted up to 17 per cent, depending on the university and subject they studied. Nonetheless, even for those who came from a similar background, graduated from the same university, studied the same subjects, achieved the same grade, and chose a similar career, those, who attended state schools, still earned 7 per cent less than graduates from private schools. Such evidence suggests the question, why the higher education, which is perceived as the route out of poverty into equality and prosperity, does not level the opportunities and does not prevent the discrimination. Would implement a social justice approach be able to close such gaps? Social justice with equal distribution of opportunity, income and wealth achieved through respective policies in the politics, economy and social welfare (Craig, 2002).
In order for education to have a positive impact in communities, it is essential to ensure equality in learning for all people. This does not necessarily mean ensuring equality in education outcomes for all people because individual factors such as competency and ability varies among people. Students from poor families are more likely to attend schools with a worse infrastructure, less qualified teachers, less ambitious peers, and outmoded practices. Because of this, they are more likely to have lower learning outcomes. Therefore, reducing educational inequality will have positive effects on developmental outcomes. Ensuring equality in education delivery will also reduce discontent in countries and cities (Inequality in education: The challenge of Measurement). Because of this, urgent solutions are needed to address educational inequality.
We are living in 21th century and people obviously know about social inequity. Normally, they will think that socioeconomic class is the main effective factor of social inequity. Wealthy people are treated better because they have money and their social class is higher than the other economic segments. They also have more privileges than lower economic class people. Unfortunately, it is very hard to get out of lower economic class; lower economic class people must work very hard to pay for their living conditions and education which takes almost their salary and they also get paid less from the wealthy people whom they are working for. In this essay, I will be focusing on how education effects on socioeconomic mobility.
When talking about the relationship between education and social inequality, particularly economic inequality, we can find that education or educational inequality is one of the reason why economic inequality occurs, however, economic inequality causes new educational unfairness in reverse. As mentioned above, gaokao is likened to a dumuqiao or “single-log bridge” (Kipnis, 2001, p.483) as it has the monopoly power to determine whether students from different social origins can get opportunities for higher education. Most importantly, it trigged the rise of merit-based selection, and made the university you graduated from become one of the merits to value (Liu, 2016). In order to cultivate graduates “who can respond to the needs of the economy” (Cockain, 2016, p.314) and revitalize the nation, China has realized “211 Project”, “985 Project”, and even developed world-class research institutions in the 21st century. However, name of these projects and universities become graduates’ labels and enterprises’ filter criteria when recruiting employees, and graduates from prestigious institutions will get much higher starting salary than the ones from common colleges. In the context of China’s reform and ensuring rapid growth in economy, more education means “greater computational skills, more extensive knowledge of geography, more accurate identification of historical events and figures, wider acquaintance with authors and works of literature” (Rong & Shi,
Lack of the occupy women on board not due solely to an absence of knowledge. On the contrary, women have been “over-achieving” in terms of education and qualifications more generally. OECD data (2011) now show that women and girls outperform men and boys at every stage in the education system, including postgraduate education.
With the economic globalization gaining momentum, it goes without saying that the competition in the job market will only become more and more fierce. And in today’s world, without a proper education, it is very hard for us to land a job in the future. No wonder that education has long been a hot issue in all countries across the globe. No one would deny the fact that there still exist large room for improvement in the education system, and the most talked about is how to promote education equity. It is of great significance because education equity safeguards the basic human rights of the vast number of students and more importantly, it is an effective means for mankind to promote social equity. However, if the universities and colleges increase their tuition fees, then they are setting back what we have already achieved for education equity. When we speak of education equity, we need to pay close attention to the affordability of education to students who are from a medium- and low-income families. Many people would take for granted that international students must all come from very well-off backgrounds. It is absolutely not true. Many of them are from very ordinary families, but their parents would rather spend all their money on their kids’ education because they believe a prestigious university’s diploma would help their kids land a dream job after graduation and thus change
While each country and university faces specific and often distinctive challenges, there are common factors that affect most countries around the world today. Ensuring maintainable higher education systems at the same time that public funding is decreasing and competitiveness is increasing. Cultivating the worth of the total student experience even as the demand for involvement is growing. When an economy is dwindling, enrollment in tertiary level institutions rises as persons seek to pursue new careers, acquire knowledge and upgrade their skills to prepare them for better job opportunities. This is a promising trend and indicates how well citizens understand that tertiary education is vital to their personal success and the country’s competitiveness and eventual economic growth. Nevertheless, acquiring tertiary education affordability is a critical component. Public divestment, student’s confidence in college education and workforce confidence in college graduates, higher education faces many challenges in the coming years.
In 21st century, many people think the African economy is poised for great things. But lots of problems, which are directly related to economy, still exist and should be fixed, especially the problem of education. South Africa is one of the sovereign states on the worlds, completely surrounded by one other state in southern Africa. South Africa’s economy developed rapidly, but they are facing an important problem-they have few people who have finished higher education. People in South Africa are hardly to receive higher education because the drop out rate is exceptionally high, particularly for girls who are forced to care for parents with AIDS and manage the
Rodney finds in colonialism double oppression of women in the African society. Women were oppressed by the African traditional customs and laws. Colonialism has intensified the oppression of women, as men entered the money sector easily and greater numbers than women. Women’s work became greatly inferior to that of men within the new value system
