Education and Social Class

...Correlation between Social Class & Education Today, criticism exists between the correlation between social class division and linguistics which suggest to a reflection of United States’ educational system. Presently in the U.S. the controversy lies between society, where a fine line that divides and correlates education and social class. Samuel Bowles and Herbert Gintis, a group of scholar researchers, concluded in their article Bowles and Gintis on Schooling in the United States that being born into a specific social class could potentially determine the future of a person’s academic potential, life goal achievements, and more specifically their respective social class. In my opinion, however, education and linguistics do not adhere to predictive social classes. Education and more specifically linguistics are being suggested as an inferiority of our school system. What is known as Ebonics or AAE (African American English) is widely used though out the modern United States; not only AAE is used today but other forms of slang like those used in Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social media. Geneva Smitherman and others also suggest certain dialects such as AAE do not reflect nor lack control over education, but it is rather an enriched language of diverse cultures. Moreover Bowles and Gintis argue that students’ “lack of control over his or her education” reflect their respective social class. According to Basil Bernstein, another scholarly source, education is......

Education and Social Class

...decades of comprehensive education, that family wealth is the single best predictor of success in the school system. Of course some children from well-off homes don’t do well at school and some children from poor backgrounds succeed, but the overall pattern is clear: social class, defined in terms of socio-economic status, correlates closely with attainment at school.” (Cole, Mike. (2006). Social class and schooling. In: Education, equality and human rights. Taylor and Francis. 202.) This extract shows that social class defines how good or how bad a student will perform in their educational years therefore it can be linked into what Gaine says “Many working class parents will want a wider range of opportunities for their children than to what they have experienced […] many will socialise their children into the world they know” (Gaine, Dr.Chris, George, Ms Rosalyn (30 Nov 1998). Gender, 'Race' and Class in schooling: A new introduction. 3rd ed. l: Taylor and Francis. 35.) Although parents would want their kids to have high aspirations they know that because of the social injustice and because they belong to working class families that’s all they’ll be aspirations. Furthermore such decisions as to what the child receives in terms of education wise and career wise all depends on the students willingness and those that don’t have the determination and for some the ones that come from lower classes it is a constant circle for them of dropping out of education and living on......

...expectations throughout every stage of life. Secondary dimensions of diversity: Key secondary dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to elements of education, military experience, work experience, income, religion, first language, organizational role and level, communication style, family status, work style. It is having a heart and mind that acknowledges, accepts, values and even celebrates the various ways that people live and interact in the world. Even with our various cultural differences we all aspire too many of the same things: security, well-being, acceptance, individualism, esteem, and some form of equity whether it’s physical, spiritual or emotional. The ethnic, cultural group that I indentify is the minorities, and my social circle does not exist, because all I do is work and go to school. Diversity includes all the ways in which people differ, and it encompasses all the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another. It is all-inclusive and recognizes every group as part of the diversity that should be valued. A broad definition includes not only race, ethnicity, and gender- the groups that most often come to mind when the term diversity is used- but also age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language and physical appearance. It also involves different ideas, perspectives, and values. Inclusion is the act of creating......

Education and Its Impact as a Social Entity

...Education and Its Impact as a Social Entity SOC101: Introduction to Sociology Education and Its Impact as a Social Entity When I think of a social structure in its entirety or as a sum of its parts, I think first of education. How we educate our young sets the ground work for how and what our nation becomes in the future. Without a firm cohesive understanding of how and what we are teaching our children and the purpose of those teachings, we can never truly advance as a culture. As with any aspect of society, the first step in correcting something that is damaged or ineffectual is to first acknowledge that there is a problem. Education is a vital element in society because it is a major influence in the development of our children and how they react to society as adults. There has been a shift in how schools function within our society. The standards of a school are greatly affected by the environment that the children find themselves in on regular basis. In order for a child to perform at the peak of their athletic ability certain things must be done prior to an event, such as a solid night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and proper training. The same is just as important to a child’s academic performance. Academic success cannot be achieved unless they have the proper preparation, such as a solid 8 hours of sleep each night, healthy food to eat on a regular basis, and the stability of a safe and secure environment. “In recent years, bullying has risen to......

However it also qualifies people to deliver milieu therapy that is one considered to be one segment of the social education. For instance inhabitation and rehabilitation facilities to individuals with mental, physical and/or societal disabilities with intellectual incapacities signify a key target cluster within social edification (Coffield et al. 2004). The expertise of social educator’s delivers a unique source for interdisciplinary exertion. The amalgamation of health and social attention, pedagogic and psychology empowers the social instructor to view possessions in an interdisciplinary outlook. Acquaintance with the dynamics and practices in innumerable disciplines also provides the social educator a constructive basis for interdisciplinary collaboration with people in other professions, like nurses, doctors, social workers, psychologists and pedagogues. Social skills form the foundation for social proficiency. Moreover, Bremer and Smith (2004, p.11) have defined the social competence as “the point to which students are able to establish as well as maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationships. Along with gaining the peer acceptance, upholding friendships, and terminate negative or maleficent interpersonal......

Role of Education in Social Entrepreneurship

...Malik (S153F0008) Entrepreneurship education in universities The latest decades have seen a tremendous rise in entrepreneurship education at universities around the globe. The foremost pedagogical tool in many entrepreneurship programs seems to be having students learn how to write a business plan (Hills, 1988; Johannisson et al., 1998). A new study examines three new, comparatively small, but very ambitious entrepreneurship programs. All of the three programs try to increase students’ awareness of entrepreneurship as a career possibility, but also include various practical training modules. Specifically, all three programs include training session in acting and thinking creatively, using a problem-based learning approach where students develop new and creative solutions to business ideas and eventually, in some cases, actually start new ventures during the educational program. Role of education on entrepreneurial intentions Entrepreneurial intention has been described as “a conscious state of mind that directs attention toward a specific goal to achieve it” (Bird, 1989, p. 8). Researchers typically trace entrepreneurial intentions to three general factors (Krueger et al., 2000). First, intentions are triggered by a person’s attitude towards the behaviour. This is seen as the weighted sum of perceived consequences and the likelihood of different outcomes of the behaviour, including intrinsic rewards. The second factor is perceived social norms. This means that the......

Social Class Education

...Throughout case studies on schools in different areas and of different income basis it has been shown that different types of eduction is offered. To support my personal view i will be refering to "Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work". Before reading Anyons essay i noticed the difference of teaching and learning of the different social classes. After graduating from middle school and starting high school i was exposed to many of the different social classes and the difference of the teachings. Its amazing how obvious it is that schools are placed in different social groups based on family income or different areas, and how the students are suffering from it. I've observed that in lower class schools, or schools that are filled with majority of children of parent s with blue- collar jobs are usually the students who are offered poorer education from the available teachers. Anyon states "The teachers rarely explain the work that is being assigned, how it might connect to other assignments, or wht the idea is that lies behind the procedure or gives it coherence and perhaps meaning or significance". When a student moves on to the next level of education this is clearly shown in their performance. It only damages the cilds potential because they are affected by the ineffective communication from the teachers, which develops a slower learning process. The children only have one objective in mind, which is completing the assignment. With little to no explanation behind......

Social Theories on Education

...Sociological Theories In Education Introduction to Sociology Professor Whited Monday February 13th 2012 Education is often considered as the most important aspect of an individual’s life. Education essentially shapes a person’s future. Without an education, moreover a good education, in today’s economy people would struggle in everyday life just to make ends meet. In fact, according to statistics published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for people who do not have a high school diploma or equivalent, on a survey taken by 11,437 people in January 2011, is 16.5%. That is a staggering 1,892 people who are unemployed because they do not have adequate education. Thus it is therefore evident that an education, or some education is paramount to a person’s success or accomplishments in life. There are three theories that help understand education. Although most view these theories as opinions, these theories support the need for education by allowing society to better understand education and they demonstrate or help identify what education really is. The three theories that are important for purposes of this paper are: Functionalism, Conflict, and Interactionism. These three theories play a vital role in helping understand education and why it is so important. Contrary to most beliefs, the theories previously mention are not simply one man’s opinions, rather they give a prime meaning to the necessity of education. Traditionally, American education......
