The Negativity of the American Education System The American Education System is not meeting the needs of current students. If anything, the system is not building a sturdy foundation for the future working class. Schools have existed for many years and every period they have worked differently. However, every school’s main purpose was to educate students to be efficacious later in life. Modern day schools are corrupting students with added pressure, standardized tests, making less accommodations for special education students, not following laws, and take away individualism from the students’. The students of modern times are the people of our future and the future does not look too bright with the current American Education System.
The idea of education has advanced throughout history, constantly shifting by societal ideals and human evolvement. This change is especially prominent during the 1800s and continues to alter to this very day with education policies. Public education first began during the Industrial Revolution. During this crucial time in history, many children were required to get an education in order to learn the trades of the growing economy and business as opposed to getting hurt in from hazardous machinery. These skills were limited reading, writing, and math.

Through history you can see that work ethic became vitally important when the United States was becoming influential in the world market. This was especially seen during the rise of industrialization in America from 1878-1889 when a handful of corporations rose up and became the most powerful companies in the world. Some of these companies that are well-known today arose during this time period such as General Electric, U.S Steel, and J.P Morgan Banking. These corporations became very successful because of their business owners and their determination to do whatever was necessary to make a profit and put themselves above all other rival companies. Several come to mind but the two most prominent were John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie.
America’s New Look as an Urban Nation When the United States was founded as a nation after the Revolutionary War it was largely agrarian in nature. Even when people lived in the village, that town was made up fewer that ten houses on average and only occasionally had other buildings such as a school, church, or small store. The people lived together for protection, and traveled out to their farm land everyday to till, plant and harvest. With the advent of the industrial revolution staring in the early part of the nineteenth century and then even more so with the information revolution of the 1960's onward people began moving away from the country and into the city because that was where they worked.

Industrialization and the American Society The United States is widely recognized for its exponential growth in regards to population, economic and political. The industrialization period had various affirmative impacts on the American society but it also had some adverse effects on the population. Most significantly, slave trade emerged during this period which led to the oppression of the African Americans who bore the majority of the burden of progress that was experienced .

At first look, I theorized that education in the Western United States was different from education in the East in the 1800s. However, I soon found out that the curriculum was standardized across the country. In the 19th century, efforts were made to allow equal opportunities for people of all socioeconomic levels and all regions in America. In the past century, people have made efforts to allow equal opportunities for people of all races and genders. The principle behind American education continues to be a standardized, one-size-fits-all education, when the world has been changing around us with new technology, jobs, and culture.
