Another huge concern of mine includes the battle between public and private schools. So many people think that private schools should have the most funding from the government. But that should not be the case. A lot of poor students cannot afford the private education. In public schools there is a higher majority of poor students while the richer students attend private, expensive schools. The fact that the government is trying to shut down public education is a terrible idea. There are so many children that need the free education. Some are struggling to put food on the table, how are they supposed to afford a private school when they cannot even afford their next meal? And a lot of public education institutions are not all bad. I went to one of the top public education schools in the country. I turned out just fine. It fuels my anger that unauthorized people are going to take away a free education for the poor half of America. We should be helping the poorer part of the country, not enabling them more. It makes no sense to have people with no knowledge of education or anything into power. Also, a lot of private schools are not accepting disables children and putting them into public schools so their ratings stay high, while the public schools' ratings will decrease. It seems unfair how public schools are viewed. They are not bad at all. And I wish people could see that.
A final concern I have about America's education system is standardized tests are discriminatory toward poorer people and less advantaged children. People who have money can take these tests as many times as they want because they can afford it. While on the other hand, poorer students cannot afford the extra couple of tests or even tutoring. Standardized tests also do not evaluate what teachers are teaching them in the classroom. For instance, character, respect and many more. Instead, they are just a bunch of memorization questions that some kids have not even learned yet. There needs to be a change in our education system if we want everyone to succeed.
