Education And Poverty
It is often said that poor wages are very low., Poverty is defined as the lack of ability to function normally in society. According to this definition, insufficient education is a form of poverty.
Students from upper-middle-class families enrolled earlier than classmates from families closer to the poverty line.
Education can help reduce the vicious circle of poverty.
The higher your education, the more likely you are to be hired and earn a higher salary. However, schools in urban areas lack the resources to provide quality education.
More experienced teachers also prefer to teach in the suburbs.
The impact of poverty can be reversed with appropriate intervention.
Poverty remains the source of financial, academic, and social difficulties. How poverty levels affect the world’s children is a worrying issue. Without educational resources, these families can only live in poverty.
The concept of poverty – Explained
Poverty is the result of not having enough resources to effectively support oneself in the community.
This concept of poverty broadens the concept that poverty is simply a lack of financial freedom.
Although poverty has a direct relationship with finances, it is important to recognize the different aspects of poverty and their effects. One aspect of economic income is education production.
Absolute poverty is a lack of funding needs. This is more common in developing countries, but it also frequently occurs in Ghana.
Absolute poverty affects children and families because they can not provide themselves with materials to promote learning.
These materials include a lack of books, pens/pencils, or children usually have no place to do their homework. It has also been found that malnutrition hinders the effective learning of students.
Relative poverty is determined by where the family lives. Where you live usually determines the school your child will attend.
Parents usually choose their living arrangements based on the cost of living. In contrast, schools located in areas used by these families usually receive little or no funding.
These children will also lack the motivation to perform well in school because the perception surrounding them is that school is not important.
Poverty reduces education enrollment and limits the learning environment. To guide poor school districts in the right direction, they must develop individualized intervention strategies rather than general conclusions.
School preparation is poor
Children’s educational journey does not begin on the first day of elementary school, but rather when they learn to observe their surroundings, form sentences, and draw conclusions about the world around them.
Your school readiness indicates the likelihood of your success in school emotionally, socially, and academically.
According to the determination of the National Educational Goal Group, a child deemed ready for school & quot; is expected to demonstrate development/knowledge in five different dimensions:
physical/motor development, social/emotional development, language development, cognitive knowledge, learning methods.
Compared with children living in upper-middle-class families, children living in poverty are less likely to have these school preparation skills.
Studies have shown that children living in poverty are more likely to suffer from mental illness, physical health problems, and below-average functions in academic and social aspects.
To reverse the impact of children not being classified as ready for school, the focus is on interventions in early childhood because this can help identify health problems, parenting problems, behaviors, and the ability to respond to social reactions.
This is about a lack of resources. These resources include financial, emotional, spiritual, spiritual, and physical.
The combination of all these resources has led to the problems faced by poor children in the classroom.
Their research also shows that the direct result of poverty may cause children to fail in school and have a high completion rate. Higher income aids in the improvement of student performance.
These survey results show that children from low-income families are affected by cognition, reading/mathematics, social and emotional aspects.
Compared with wealthy peers, children in these families almost always score below average.
The lack of family systems/subsystems, emotional/mental support, and role models have been highlighted as causes of poor academic performance.
Race and gender are not found to be the decisive factors, just to show trends/data separated by race.
These students in these communities do not receive funding/experienced teachers to help bridge the gap.
To help improve academic achievement rates, the teaching techniques and strategies provided in the classroom should be changed.
The three main areas of reform are the school environment, family/community environment, and regional/national policies.
Changes in schools
Education at any level is a necessary condition in today’s society. The evil of poverty will place a heavy burden on the educators who teach these students.
Standardized tests have been implemented so that school administrators can see the overall success and failure of students’ learning.
Because of this, it is easy for teachers to pay more attention to the continuous cycle of new teachers in minority areas, which will hurt the education they are receiving.
The insufficient income of the parents of students is closely related to their lack of education. History and evolution show that inequality is a reality.
However, with the progress of mankind, it is reasonable to believe that civilization can prevent the decline of its social construction through popularization and high-quality education.
Adopting this view can help us completely rethink education and bring a more progressive system to our future.
Through the research of the great scholars before me, I began to realize that poverty is not a two-dimensional or three-dimensional problem.
I didn’t know this, and now I have a better understanding of what poverty means.
Poverty is not just a deficit of economic means.
Poverty affects families and prevents them from functioning properly in the community; they have trouble paying bills, but without a good education, they can not find a decent, high-paying job. A good education costs money. You have no money, so the cycle continues.
Absolute and relative gazes are extremely important in this unfavorable cycle because they categorize the imperfections caused by poverty; children from poor areas are forced to go to school, and their communities receive little or no support.
When students are unable to effectively build these skills, they will fail for a long time, not only academically, but also psychologically and socially because of poverty and scarce resources, such as family systems/subsystems, emotional/psychological support, role models, and financial support It is directly related to the student’s low academic performance.
The author offers several solutions to close the academic gap in the impact of poverty on academic achievement, such as holistic evaluation and the use of voluntary data to evaluate students.
Although this article provides a lot of important information about the problem of impoverished students, it does not provide a real solution.
In low-income families, children often have no access to the resources of middle-income or high-income students.
Changing the way these students are assessed through assessment will not change the education these students receive. It will only help them look better statistically.
