We are living in a illusion, where the public school system is working fine to our requirements.Over the years, millions of students are dropping out of public schools, and the number is still increasing at a rapid rate. Most parents still have the mindset that the public school system will provide plenty of opportunity for their children in the future. But in reality our public school system has done very little more than just babysit their children. The public school system has failed its students, especially in most black communities and other minority communities. Most public school students are in distress because the United States has a poor education system.The main reason the public school system has failed its students is because of lack of fund and qualify teachers.
To begin with, a key issue that should be addressed to help improve America’s high school system is that most schools have substandard teachers or mentors. The teachers' roles in a classroom or generally in any school is to teach knowledge to their students. Although if students are given inadequate teachers that do not teach well this can negatively impact the students learning. As follows in the article called, Let Teenagers Try Adulthood by Leon Botstein, he mentions about the substandard teachers, “Given the poor quality of recruitment and training for high school teachers, it is no wonder that the curriculum and the enterprise of learning hold so little sway over young people.” (Botstein 183) To which, the lack of attention that schools pay
Mark Biller describes the educational system like a delicate ecosystem, all parts of it need to work together if things are going to last. If the community does not support a school, odds are the school will have to close-down. If the teachers don’t work with parents, then kids will not get the support they need. If parents do not support teachers, students loose an
Natalia Cameron Mrs. Harvey Period 2 22 March 2016 Unit 4 AA: The Church is Catholic A lot of catholic schools are closing for many reasons such as a faltering economy, fewer Church members, rising costs and the inability of families to pay, secularization, and changing demographics. The school I chose is St. Agatha Catholic academy, which a is a kids program in Chicago. St. Agatha Catholic Academy is closing at the end no of 2016 due to low enrollment and financial difficulties. They recently turned into a pre kindergarten through the eight grade school last year, they only enrolled twelve children. The pastor of St. Agatha said that "It was pretty much expected. We're at a point (where) the community is inundated with pre-K programs. For me it
America’s education system is a disaster and the government has over the years spent millions on fixing the education system. The government has failed in fixing the education system because they are not the real people who can fix it. The government has made many different programs to fix the education system, like the No Child left behind program. Most people blame the government for spending millions to fix the education system and failing. What our society does not understand is that the government can only fix so much. It is time for all students, parents, and teachers to take responsibly and fix the education system in the way they want. Students, parents and teachers can make the education system better by students taking control of their own education, parents who care for their kid’s education and teachers who make amazing learning environment for their students.
Why is America’s Education Failing? The United States is often referred to as the best country in the world in many areas. It may be, but far from it in education. Out of a total of thirty-four countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, it ranks just fourteenth in reading, seventeenth in science and twenty-fifth in math (Walker). Despite America's status as a country, America's education is failing because of the large emphasis on standardized education, and the flaws of the students, parents, and teachers. How to fix the education system remains to be a problem.
There are many reasons as to why the U.S. education system is failing. First, the U.S. education system is failing because the parents’ involvement in their children is not enough. There is simply not enough time for teachers to instruct every student and what they need to know. Because of this, there must be parent involvement outside of school. Students who are at a socio-economic disadvantage tend to struggle more in school, especially parents lacking higher education levels. Students who come from middle and upper class families have the same risk because of the demands of careers and an over-dependence on schools. Another reason why the U.S. education system is failing is overcrowded schools and classes. If a class is smaller, a student

I noticed before even asking myself these questions that the education system was failing many of our students. Looking in the media alone, anyone can clearly see many takes on the US system, whether it be comical, satirical, or just a plain news story about the facts. One satirical take on the current education system that I believe truly captures the essence of today's classrooms is an article by the Onion titled "Negative Parent-Teacher Conference Not Exactly Eye-Opening for Area Mother". The article takes you through the opinions of an "area mother" who just left a parent teacher conference for her son. “I mean, I’m not sure I needed to drive all the way down here for the shocking news that the person that I fight with every single night about doing his homework is getting poor grades.” It portrays the clear lack of concern from parents, lack of interesting material in the standards, and the lack of effort from students. Unfortunately, it seems this has become the norm for many students in school systems across our country.
To What Extent Do Our Schools Serve The Goals of a True Education? Many may believe that the United States school system is flawless; that no other countries school system or organization is as advanced as ours, “just like our government.” Those people need to come into the realization that our school system is broken, we need to be realists and not dreamers when it comes to something as serious as our education. Our school system has not been putting in the needed or required effort to reach the goals of true education or a good education that we, as students, deserve. Schools have been cheating us of what we deserve. Although some may believe our school system is perfect, it is not; our school system is broken and it needs to be fixed.
Continuing education to the college level is a very Today, however, it seems as if the public has lost track of the importance of a great educational system. The main issue today’s public schools faces are funding problems. There is not enough money allocated to support the growing needs of school across the nation.
Many of the issues surrounding the achievement The US education system is like a sports team with a consistently sub-par record. Year after year, our “team” fails. After a while, people stop expecting anything great from the team. Eventually sub-par performance is normalized and becomes the expectation. After enough time, people slowly lose interest in the team. People stop cheering for the team. People give up hope, and accept the fact that their team will never win. Once hope has been given up, people minimalize the value of their team. Similarly, education in America has been failing for so long that people have started to give up hope. People have started to question the importance of education and the value of a high school diploma or a college degree. The situation America currently in is a tricky one. There is no magical panacea. There is no overnight fix. If we as a nation are serious about changing we need to make some big changes to our education
When you look up the etymology of ‘epidemic’, you will see that the word is broken down to mean something “among and/or upon people or a district”. With that being said, one of the biggest epidemic issues today, is the affects and effects of the American school system. The reason that both words are being used is because school has the power to affect and effect; on different levels. America’s effectiveness is felt by not only the parents, but the children as well. These children of today are exiting the wombs’ of their mothers’ with great intelligence. In other words, a child knows where they feel wanted, loved, etc. This applies to the classroom as well. In many cases the school system has been said to be broken. When the school is broken,
What is it that’s making our country suffer from excelling in education? Very few would argue about the importance of our education system today. Issues such as lazy teachers, lack of parent involvement, and teaching useless information in class may hinder progress in today’s education system. An education plays a
"The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see." -Alexandra K. Trenfor. Honestly, at this point in life I feel like our public education system has been designed to fail students. Teachers don't have the power to teach children lesson on life anymore. We have to teach children to copy-and-paste and learn to regurgitate answers to pass a standardized test that doesn't even properly display how much a child as excelled. Children are going to be illiterate if they're not taught properly. They'll never be able to know how to deal with real world problems or survive financially with how the education system is right now.
