Participant P#1 did not experience, education hardship, however, she gave her experience, on educational limitation in the Ward schools.
High percentage of children studying in the ward schools fail the exam because of insufficient books, teachers, and other teaching needs. But if you have the ability and take your child in a private school, your child will succeed because teachers receive fair payment there. In private schools, they make follow-up, and teachers work hard. So children going to such schools work hard and succeed. If your child from primary school goes to the ward school, and your neighbor’s child goes to private school the outcome is your child will fail and your neighbor’s child will perform well. When you ask why your …show more content…
Some of them did not have evening meals. Teachers volunteer with their pocket money to provide them with tea or biscuit, and the children recover after eating.
Informant P#7 expressed concerns of children in rural schools where teachers cannot reach them:
Our neighboring Hekwe Primary school- has almost five hundred registered students, but strangely there are only two teachers. Do you see? They are two why? Teachers are assigned, but because of the challenging environment no one wants to live there. When it is raining you cannot access the area even using a motorcycle. The fair is almost Tshs 7,000, the road is muddy and slippery.
The government has not yet prepared the infrastructure to help poor children living in village’s access education. Why am I saying that? Because roads, health services, and technology are still far behind. They have not yet monitored in many areas of our Serengeti area and other areas of Tanzania in general.
Informant P#4 noted that “schools in the village do not have enough tools for teaching. They are just there ward schools. Often teachers fail to stay in these schools for the reason of unfriendly [...]environment in rural schools.” She continued:
Teachers live on a little salary, frequently not enough to fulfill their needs, and so they tend to escape from rural school teaching posts. They just report to their

Throughout decades, education inequality is still one of the most deliberate and controversial issues in the United States. Thus far, the privilege or right to receive education has not attained the level of equality throughout the nation. Poor districts obtain less educational funds while rich districts obtain more, which create an immense gap between the quality of schools in poor and rich areas. In other words, the education gap is the root of inequality in America. Inequality in education is linked to the major problems in the society. The need for studies to be done to find ways of overcoming these inequalities is very inevitable. The means of mitigating these inequalities are important for the entire world. This is something of great interest due to the fact that children need quality education which is a pillar for a guaranteed future. Generally speaking, the distinctions among races, genders, and classes in the society have caused the educational inequality in America.
Women in India are looked as housewives, who have to please her family especially her husband, therefore education is rarely an option for girls in India. Neeraj who is fifteen years old lives in India with her father, mother, sister and other relatives. She does many chores, as well as grazing goats, and farming. Just like in Afghanistan, the boys never do house work, so while she helps her mother with the house work her brothers play outside. Neeraj dreams of becoming a teacher, and building a school for her students. Since she has to help with the house work, she attends school at night, by the time she gets back her family members have already gone to bed. To make things worse for Neeraj, a drought occurred in the year of 2006; her parents took her out of school, so that she could find green pasture. While she was gone she did not study, making her fall behind in school. When she returned four months later, she worked hard to get caught up again but it was hard. Since, many parents began enrolling their kids in public schools during the day, the night school was closed down. Neeraj’s teacher did his best to help her get into the public school, but because Neeraj had forgotten so much information, she was placed in second grade. All the younger kids made fun of her since she was so big, and did not know anything. Neeraj ended up dropping out of school; her teacher says that “is up to her family to decide what it will be like for Neeraj.” Neeraj’s parents plan to marry her to a young educated man. With this in mind, Neeraj is not planning on returning to school, instead she is waiting to be married, and to form a family of her own. Therefore, if Neeraj does not marry an educated wealthy man, she will not live a prosperous life. Moving on, there is one last kid, whose name is Ken, who as well has great dreams of completing
The inequality of education in the United States is a pressing societal issue that has been the main catalyst for the division between the social classes. Education is a public good, and thus if it used by one consumer then it will not reduce the availability to another consumer. Education can also be considered the largest single factor in determining a person’s success and quality of life in society today.
Education, which should be a school’s main goal, was neglected at these schools. The schools were extremely underfunded by the government and many practical skills were taught instead of academical skills. Girls were sought after to do domestic tasks, and were taught to cook, clean, sew, and do laundry. Boys were taught carpentry, smithing, and farming. A large population of the schools only attend for part of the time as the other time was spent doing unpaid work against their will. Girls were required to do housekeeping, and boys were required to do general maintenance and agricultural tasks. The jobs were presented to the students as practical training, however the reason for these jobs was to help run the underfunded
Over the years the role that teachers play in the child’s life has massively changed. In the late 1800s and early 1900s many children did not go to school, what they learned came from home, so when they did come to school, it was a shock. Many of the parents would send the children to school, and forget about them. Especially in girls, education has been the hardest from them over the years.
The social situation i.e. where and how they live, for example, if a child is brought up in poverty and or other related problems such as poor housing a child’s educational success can be affected as there is little money available or facilities for the child to access so that they can support their learning out of an educational environment, there is often little parental support. The lack of success can often be due to problems involving language and communication skills. The
The education system in the United States has expanded over the years to prepare individuals for the demanding labor market that constitutes our society. It has shifted from the development of mere intellectual scholars to the development of intellectual scholars competitive enough for a work force that now requires a degree for entrance. As this system of education has expanded throughout the country, so has the reproduction of inequality. To explain the manner in which this system has been structured to achieve a gap of inequity among society’s affluent and disadvantaged members, conflict theorist Karl Marx claims that, “School institutions are intentionally designed to integrate individuals into an unjust society” (Brand lecture, January
Today’s education system has its problems, one of the problems being equal education to everyone. This is a problem that can be seen in the more poverty areas in the United States. Most schools in poverty areas have older materials to work with, teachers who are less passionate about their jobs, are not being taught the humanities, and many of the schools are shutting down from poor conditions and low attendance.
For the first century of the United States, Congress had a restricted but active position in education, which expanded after the Civil War in 1865. At that time, the federal government mandated new union states to offer free public schools and established an early form of the Department of Education. From the late 1930s to the early 1990s, the Supreme Court's opposition to congressional power decreased, clearing the way for a greater federal role in education. The federal role in education increased as Congress provided funding for the construction of schools, teacher salaries, and school lunch programs. However, this assistance was geared toward wealthier school districts, which negatively impacted poorer, urban schools (Martin, 2012).
Some government are not willing to provide funding to help provide better outcomes for the children’s future. The lack of available funding can have an effect on the children’s future especially children with social educational needs as due to the lack of funding can have an effect on the child as the schools, playgroup etc. will be unable to get them the one to one support that the child in order to get the best possible outcome in the setting. It also has an effect on the training that the staff can get access which will also affect the child’s development. If the child is not in the appropriate learning environment for his need will have a negative effect on the outcome for the child both sort term and long term such as weather he is in
In the decades since, there have also been a student at a boarding school to be humiliated, reports of sexual assault outflow, they often malnourished, beaten and were required to do heavy work. And the survey also shows that a large part of the boarding school teachers think they are going to "educate" these children, not to "teach" these children or
This need is supported by the often brutal living conditions faced by the students at the schools. For starters, the physical construction of the schools was of poor quality and build (Neeganagwedgin, 2014, p. 33). Next, the schools were often plagued with illnesses such as tuberculosis, which was soon recognized as the leading cause of numerous deaths amongst students (Grant, 1996, p. 118). On top of this, there was poor ventilation throughout the schools as means to save on costs (Grant, 1996, p. 118-119). Ultimately, this contributed to the rampant spreading of such illnesses (Grant, 1996, p. 119). An inspection of the schools in 1907 revealed that schools that had been in effect for ten years or higher had alarming illness and death rates (Grant, 1996, p. 118). In fact, “…seven percent of the present or former students were sick or in poor health, and twenty-four percent were dead” (Grant, 1996, p. 118). To make matters worse, the meals prepared for the students were of astonishingly poor quality. In an interview with Bette Spence, she confesses that one meal in particular was “Just bits of lamb floating in this white, off-white gravy…” stating that “…it wasn’t appetizing at all. But, you had to eat something or just go hungry” (Deiter, 1999, p. 41). Often, there also
One third of schools in the United States are located within rural areas. Rural areas are known to be small towns where people are known for a southern way of life. These areas are also known for high poverty and geographic seclusion. With these characteristics for an environment, it is difficult to maintain an upright school atmosphere. Most schools in rural areas are lacking high qualified teachers and the school itself is failing to develop strategies to help struggling readers in early elementary school.
Education is something often seen as an equalizer in the face of social injustice. The concept of using school and information to put different people on a level playing field is a noble but misguided attempt at social equality. Education undoubtedly affects the position of people in society positively, while creating an outlet to educate the ignorant, it becomes problematic when education is not an equal opportunity for everyone. In Adrienne Rich’s essay, “Taking Women Students Seriously”, she speaks of the inequality mainly affecting women while subtly hinting at the inequality present in education in regards to race and class. Gender, race and class are three characteristics that work together to create either a positive or negative profile for one’s education.
