Looking into debating with contenders who does support school - February 7th 2010, 09:52 PM

The U.S educational system has been reformed for over 100 years failing in helping the average of all of the students to achieve the required knowledge of basic subjects such as math, science, reading, and other subjects as observed in several different cases such as high school graduates taking remedial classes into colleges during the freshmen years, illiterate adults, schools facing actions for low test scores, and many more cases out there. In this debate, we'll be discussing the possible issues in the social aspects of the school that may influence the student's knowledge development. We're also discussing the other possible problematic sources that may influence the neuropsychological aspects of the students and the possible negative results. The goal for the con is to prove that the positive effects override the negative effects I have mentioned.

The list of problems that have been noted in the way public schools deal with student's education:

*Teachers have limited teaching possibilities because they're having a great number of students to deal with at once, and that they need to comply with the school rules.

*Curriculum are dysfunctional due to the varied preferences and learning methods of the students, which leads into results that aren't necessarily good.

*The environment is not and cannot be tailored to students with special needs, such as sightless students, students who have auditory issues, or simply students with different personalities, such as introverts. This can lead to frustration, which in turn can yield unsatisfactory results.

*Some people in the educational institution place higher value on supporting the economy, rather than providing satisfactory education for the students.

*Grades doesn't necessarily reflect the knowledge development of students because several different factors such as the working of the brain, difficulty of the assignment, placing of the answers, whether the lesson is learned or not, whether the person is motivated or not, and the communication between the groups which is teachers, students, employees, principle, and several other groups out there.

Evidence supporting the aforementioned claims is offered via studies in neurology, psychology, and experience. We all have our limitations when it comes to both learning and teaching, which are bound to increase when augmented by rule compliance. Furthermore, the amounts of students that a teacher has to work with at once affects efficiency being hindered. Despite showing similar personality traits, two persons have different brains as observed in several different neurological studies verifying that 2 minds have different organization setup and different strength and weakness. This entails that each person must have a learning style individually tailored to their necessities. Though it may sometimes work to use a single learning method over a larger number of persons, the best can only be achieved through individual methods.
