What are some challenges the future brings to education professionals?

  1. How do you feel about the No Child Left behind Act?

Seriously, I won’t be angry if you don’t agree with me.

Smile, we are entitled to our own thoughts and views.

  1. Are you the problem or the solution in the equation?

I feel that those number crushers in higher positions than you and I today are monitoring education. In order to provide a healthy and prospective future for adult learners, I feel we need to reassess the adults that are willing to pursue higher learning and reevaluate the prerequisites to continue higher learning.

As a prior recruiter responsible for prospecting, interviewing and processing, I personally understand that as a society we are failing behind compared to other countries in regards to education. I personally and professionally dislike the no child left behind (NCLB) Act. There has to be a way where schools can better prepare, evaluate, inspire, teach and graduate students that will retain what they have learned and continue to pursue higher education.

I say this because in my profession, it is evident that some students were not properly taught the basic fundamentals of writing and have taken for granted the basic essentials of grammar and punctuation.  Just as Benjamin Franklin established the first English Academy which was to teach students at different levels relevant training which focused on embracing all attributes of possible interest in learning, I feel we need to challenge our students and allow them to pursue the path that is best for them.

Every student will not be an English or History scholar, but seeing that finance plays a key role in providing students the opportunity to excel, there has to be a way as a society that we come together to reshape our children’s education and the future of education so students graduate and pursue their aspired goals.

I personally feel that education has become something of a blanketed event, where as if one student does not prevail; as a society, lets not focus on that one individual, but refocus on the group that individual is in. If everyone else in the group has succeeded, then everyone has succeeded.

The National Education Association (NEA) has a great amount of resources dedicated to every student educators may come into contact within class. “Educators embrace cultural and diversity as well as gays and lesbians. No matter how different we are, what culture we choose to embrace or religion we choose to practice, everyone is entitled to outstanding leadership, and the best education and educator could possibly provide as a dedicated professional.” (Resources for Addressing Multicultural and Diversity Issues in Your Classroom. (n.d.). Retrieved February 02, 2016, from http://www.nea.org/tools/resources-addressing-multicultural-diversity-issues-in-your-classroom.htm).

In this youtube viewing, President Obama signs the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

 

  1. The question is, Will every student succeed?

  2. How do you feel about the ESSA?
