Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use? It’s nice to be number one, but we can fix that. All we need to do is start the war on education. If it’s anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we’ll all be hooked on phonics — Leighann Lord.
As the summer holidays draw to a close, both students and parents are in heighted state of preparation to meet the start of the new school year.
Some new students will find this an exciting experience while other will be filled with fear and trepidation.
That said it is very important to start the new school year on a positive note. This will no doubt lay the foundation for what follows or transpires during the year.
It will also influence children’s attitude, confidence, and performance both socially and academically.
The fact is the beginning of a new school year calls for major adjustments by both students and parents.
It involves a change in routine on the part of parents whereas for students it means new engagement in scholastic activities at various levels, adjusting to the structure of new schedules, and just dealing with the pressures associated with school life.
Of course, the degree of adjustment ultimately rest with the students, but parents, guardians as well as teachers can help to manage the transition by planning ahead.
On the other hand, school administrators will be busy seeking to ensure that all the various amenities are in place and the learning environment is a welcoming one.
Unfortunately, one of the pressing problems administrators will be faced with is finding teachers to teach in areas of math, sciences, and special education.
This has been an ongoing problem that continues to plague the educational system along with overcrowded classrooms.
However, until the political leaders begin to take education seriously and cease to pontificate and act to address the problem, we will continue to wallow at the bottom of the ladder in terms of educational achievement.
