Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on equal chance of educational success. Children’s success in school is a major stepping stone to their success as adults. Their gradual procession in classes will ultimately determine where they go to college, what professions will be pursued and ultimately what their annual return will be.
Success in life is becoming what you want to be. This desire should not be hampered from materializing regardless of one’s race, gender, ethnic group, social-economic background, disability or any other proclivities. Educational success should not be elitist or impartial hence its services should be available to people no matter the differences people may have. The only fighting ground open or required to take advantage are the student’s effort, an eager and open mind and dedication.
Chances to equal educational success are hampered by the inequality in distribution and availability of education and the benefits that ensue from it are only beneficent to a certain group of people, a certain region, certain social class etc. Several pointers bar education with its role of being the great equalizer. Schools that admit low-income students often get a biased distribution of national resources (Conley, 2004).
More often than not, the teachers here are less qualified and due to the low pay they are less motivated and this shifts to the students. These schools get low input in materials compared to schools that are more endowed. Schools with more intake from the elite have a positive climate. Indeed such an environment is associated with good performance and delivering more confident students that are likely to be go-getters in contrast with the ones from the poor schools.
Developing countries are succumbed by the challenges of improving their education due to limited resources. This is a reason as to why these countries’ workforce cannot be at the same level and hence education success is different between the first and third world countries.
