According to comparing table of Texas in education area with other states in US, I see that Texas was ranked in the low stage generally, excepting public school enrollment. Texas government invests a great number of money into public school in order to support Texas citizens’ tuition. The hierarchy of Texas will effect negatively to society, economy, and policy in the future. The proportion of people over twenty-five years old in the state having high school diplomas was ranked fiftieth in US. This number shows that the number of Texans having high school certification is very low leading to have a poor ability human resource to companies and government organizations in the future. Poor skills will not produce high quality productions or manage companies …show more content…
This is one of reasons why students have low score in SAT. Students are hard to have scholarship with these score; so that they have to pay full tuition while they have a lot of bills to pay. As a consequence, they have to give up their student life or expand their study time in school to work in order to support to their families. This also leads to have a poor ability human resources in society. Moreover, the proportion of teenage birth rate in Texas is very high. Woman from fifteen to nineteen years old have kids; however, they do not have enough age to work with high salary while having to pay a lot statements such as life fee, and fee to take care their children. Because of lacking money, they have to sacrifice the chance to go to school, or do something illegally that leads to insecurity in society. This results are the domino affects that we should worry about. The authorities should make solution to deal with these results, exactly prevent this situation expanding in the future. I come from Vietnam that is a small country in Asia, and has many poor
Education development has been an important matter in Texas for decades. Texas has been known for their improvements and reformation in public schools since their first attempt of a public school system. Within these improvements, came issues that escalated to create our public education system today. The issues that helped arrange the system are desegregation, equity in funding, and education policy.
High quality education is a must in U.S. since it means that today's youth will be prepared with the knowledge needed to tackle our nations issues. When looking from state to state, you will notice how various states differ in how well they are able to educate students. Maryland was ranked number one in the nation by having a high grade point average amongst students and an equally high graduation rate. Texas on the other hand had the worst grade point average and graduation rate. The reason for this is the amount of funding that goes into public schools. Maryland puts a lot of funding into their public schools which helps raise grade point averages. Meanwhile Texas puts little funding into public schools and
The Texas legislature is a bicameral body which is composed of a 31-member Senate and a 150 - member House of Representative. The state legislature meets at the capital in Austin. State legislators in Texas salaries consist of making $600 per month or $7,200 per year. Some people feel their salary is too low, others feel as though they should raise their salaries to a sustainable career-level wage. I believe the state legislature should not have their salaries raised and I feel they are currently receiving the amount they deserve. When you take into consideration the amount of work they do and politicians are not well liked by people, are reasons why their current salary pay is justified.
Though the Texas' economy has diversified in recent decades, the state's abundant oil and gas resources remain a valuable asset - especially when prices for those commodities are high - that most other states lack. Even if it were possible for other states to replicate these features, the fact that so many Texans have failed to benefit from them - with poverty, low-wage jobs and lack of health insurance all above the national average - makes Texas a less-than-desirable model to
The role of Legislators and courts have played in the Texas Education System has been miserably unsuccessful. Citizens have been concerned about the education of their young for years. The reason is that it has failed to establish any public system of education that is equal to all students, which seems to be redundant and keeps rearing its ugly head in Texas history. Public education has to meet the needs of Texas students. Public education in the Texas will play a major role in shaping of our state in the future. The schools in low income have often assumed the position of unjust, while children in better schools enjoy the luxury of a solid education. This relationship of education to the views of Texas is prevalent throughout the low income.
The only way Texas will be a successful state, is only if students are excellent at passing exams. Otherwise, Texas will be populated with adults who have no direction because they were never taught how to do something on their
We are located within miles of the Gulf of Mexico and next to the border with Mexico. The state of Texas many commercial airports, making us one of the leaders of the movement of goods across the country. Many businesses come to Texas for it offers low taxes to corporate income taxes. We also offer 12 million of well-educated work force. Just the valley has 32 independent school districts some who have multiple high schools as well as private school and charters school. Some of this are part time students or full time students, the percentage shows that around 29.9 of the students get an associate’s degree while 11.7 percent of them get a bachelor’s degree, and 5.6 go on and get a master’s degree. The level of education that the residents of the valley get depends on the amount of local wage that many of the resident have. Many of them are
Texas would be the 14th largest economy in the world as a stand-alone country by Gross Domestic Product. The state is border line healthy but does have a growing GDP. The infrastructure is average definitely room for improvement. It is said that Texas is going to have 12.4 percent more revenue to spend in the next TWO budget years. I define Texas’s economy as borderline healthy even though everything is looking positive for Texas because just two years ago there were panics in certain areas of being in debt. They are now getting their state back to being healthy and as long as they keep making smart decisions and start working on the cities/towns little by little they will remain healthy.
As the Senate member, I will shape the Texas higher education system to suit the 1955 Education Amendment to ensure that public schools are well standardized to provide the foundation of the higher education system is enhanced. I will surface all the technicalities concerning the choice of public schools by ensuring that all public schools conditions are standardized and that all the social amenities that make teachers choosy are provided in the required proportion for equal education in public schools.
Over the years, there has been an issue I Texas, but the main issue that has been going around is education in the public school’s system. In the pubic schools of Texas there are many problems that a student faces. The three main reasons are that some teachers don’t know how to speak English properly, some kids from private schools go to public schools, and finally there is no push from the teachers to help the students. These are the issues in which some students drop out or just do not try. In some schools in the state of Texas there are many types of teachers that could be from others countries or different background and that is ok, but if they don’t know to speak English properly then it ill be hard for the student to understand the teacher
I came to Texas when I was around 9 years old, so I have been here most of my life, but my parents have raised me more on Confucius values; only one or maybe few people take on the leadership role i.e. traditionalism. Now, after learning about Texas government and had read “Big, Hot, Cheap, and Right: What America Can Learn from the Strange Genius of Texas” by Erica Grieder. Texas has a weaker government than I thought yet somehow economically it is very strong. Texas was a heavy agriculture state so government offices and officials were not very important. Now, in the modern era Texas has become more business
The United States is known to offer the students one of the best educations in the world, unfortunately, there are 2-3 million youths aged, 16-24 years’ old who are without postsecondary education and are "disconnected". “By “disconnected” we mean, young people who are not in school and have been out of work for a substantial period, roughly a year or more” (239). This shows that many young men have no interest in learning but are taking away from those who had an education and can't find a job or got laid off, which isn't fair. Others from the age 16-24, are not enrolled in school and seem to not have a consistent income. People disconnected from the world will lack employment and earnings which will affect their future wages and job opportunity.
Texas’s economy has been known to shift throughout the years due to major development and influential changes. There are three primary developments that played a part in the evolution of Texas’s economy. One, the earliest development came along with the production of cotton, cattle, and distribution by the use of railroad systems. Two, the discovery and growth of oil followed shortly after. Three, the development of high-tech digital technology.
However the cost of college makes it difficult for people to get a college education. “Shelly Comer, 43, of Des Palos, California, is a divorced mother of three who also takes care of her oldest child, Michelle. She is going into debt so that Michelle can go to college(Wallechinsky 26)”. Michelle, “is concerned about the financial burden her education is placing on her family: “In order to meet our expected family contribution, my mother had to the entire amount of her share (Wallechinsky 26)”. A college education is very difficult to pay for. These quotes tell the story of the financial burden that is placed on families to send someone to college. Once the person graduates they have to get a job that will pay them enough to start repaying the cost of college. Sometimes those jobs are hard to come by. “Today, despite having a college education, Randy works for $9 an hour finding community jobs for the mentally challenged adults (Wallechinsky 26)”. We have to make getting a college education more affordable. Many times parents go into financial debt trying to help their children. This only hurts their American Dream as many of them are moving into the retirement stage of their
In the State of Texas there is a dominance in the fact that Texas is a conservative state and has continued to remain as a conservative state for many years and possibly many more years to come. In accordance, there is a hostility when the role in government interference activity in economy. The government is known to remain out of the people's affairs, and when needed to intervene there must be boundaries for the situation to be controlled locally. In Texas, the political context is considered big in which Texas is considered the fastest growing population, its third of the ten biggest cities in the United States, and its rated sixth best state for business in Forbes. Although big is usually interpreted as a good thing in Texas big is
