Education is not what it used to be.
Debate Rounds (3)
Diplomas have suffered inflation just like the U.S. dollar and like the dollars inflation no one want to admit it. Jobs that once required an associates degree now require a bachelor's, one that required a bachelor's degree now require a masters and so on. Educational digress are susceptible to the same supply and demand law as any other valuable commodities, specifically the more people obtain degrees the less valuable they become. Since the 1970's the amount of people attending community collages and four-year collages has increased significantly. This increase in the amount of people obtaining diplomas has led to the increase of standards imposed by employers.
And what's with the curriculum? The amount of remediation is discussing, obviously something is not working if students must be subjected to the same material and go the same courses over and over again. Why must a student study the same math problems over and over again in high school and collage? Why would they study them in collage if they have no particular relevance to their future vocation? I submit that irrelevant classes only hinder and hurt a student's academic performance by forcing them to split their time between classes more pertinent to their future vocation and classes that are simply irrelevant. Perhaps if course curriculum were more relevant to student's lives and future vocations such levels of remediation would not be necessary.
Definition of education from Merriam Websters dictionary: The action or process of educating or of being educated.
I will just assume from common sense that we are talking about the Sierra Leone education system.
Since the last Civil war ended in 2001 education among the nation has increase considerably, and school enrollment has doubled. So double the people are being educated. Point proven
As in what is the relevance of your supposed argument? "I will just assume from common sense that we are talking about the Sierra Leone education system." What gives your senses the illusion that I am talking about the Sierra Leone education system? Perhaps if you read more carefully you would have see this, "Why education seams glorious in America these days from this perspective, but is it? ". One may assume from common sense that the heart of my argument lied with the education system in America and not Sierra Leone, but I digress. Lets move on to the meat and potatoes of your alleged argument. Education, the action or process of educating or of being educated, has increased considerably in Sierra Leone since the end of the last civil was in 2001, school enrollment has doubled. From this we get to your "proven point" that double the people are being educated. Could you please explain how is this "point" relevant to my argument and possibly elaborate on your stance?
You have not proved that Sierra Leone's education has gotten worse.
Those are your brothers! YOUR BROTHERS!
They are sons of god!
Your selfishness has led you to blindly focus on and analyze the apparent "faults" of American education when millions of illiterate children around the world go without even the security of a home let alone a school system to call their own. Get with it. United States children are lucky to even have a public school system, even if it does have those nasty microwaved school lunches.
