Educational Problems In Arkansas         I Chose To Write About Education.

1205 words - 5 pages

Educational Problems in Arkansas I chose to write about Education. In my eyes education is what makes this country run. Those who go to school are the future of tomorrow. I can not imagine what it would be like if we did not have some type of educational system. There are two problems that I am going to address along with a few solutions and future problems that the state of Arkansas might face. The first of the two problems that I see have to do with teacher's salaries. Teachers in Arkansas make anywhere from $25,000 to $35,000 dollars a year. In this day and age, this is barely enough money to support a teacher and his or her spouse. If this couple wanted to have two kids, there is no way that they could survive on the $30,000 dollars that the one person is making. So, the other parent is eventually forced to go to work. When both of these parents are at work, the kids have to go to a day care center. As these kids grow into teenagers, both of their parents will have to keep a full-time job and do not ever get to see their kids. When the teenagers move out, they feel rejected, which in turn leads of a serial killer. Now one should be able to see this growing problem, yet there needs to be some solutions proposed. The second problem that I see within the educational system of Arkansas is the lack of technology in the classrooms. For instance, at my high school we have about thirty-five computers in the entire school that are hooked up to the Internet. We only have about forty-five computers in the school while some schools in Texas have laptop computers that they issue to each student! Arkansas is rapidly growing outdated. The world is quickly changing from a time of televisions and radios to a time of computers and high-speed links. If there are still states similar to Arkansas with schools that have a student to computer ratio of almost nine, when this change is complete, we are going to be in big trouble. Texas has some of the highest paid teachers and is one of the most technologically advanced states in the United States. One would ask why? It is because of a single thing called a Lottery. Arkansas does not have a lottery, and I can not tell one a good reason why we do not. Yet, I can almost guarantee that if Arkansas did create a state wide lottery, the revenue would be so great that Arkansas would be able to cut the property tax while still having an increase in teacher salary and money left over for the technological advancement of schools. These problems that I have brought up definitely need some immediate attention. Yet one must be asking oneself, what can we do about it? Well, there are other ways to deal with these problems other than the one I have listed above. For instance, bring the problem out to the public. How do I do that you ask? First off, you must create a constituency or a group of followers. Once you have that, it will be much easier to perform tasks because the United States...
