Dear Mr. or Mrs. President,
Education is a huge part of the future. Not only does school determine a student’s future, but it also can make a difference in the future of the world. With greater education comes a greater future. Businesses rely on the education of their employees.
“There have been 142 school shootings in America since 2013,”(Mosendz 1). School safety should be a top priority because keeping the children safe improves America as a whole. These numbers of shootings could lower with better locks on doors, video cameras, and other security features.
The cost of education is too much money for some families to afford. Lowering the cost to go to college would be a major improvement in today’s education. This way, more students would be able to graduate college and result in a smarter tomorrow for later generations.
Technology is also important in modern education. Lack of wealth should not determine the quality of education. Technology is important for students because of the convenience of not carrying text books, mobility of being able to access classwork and homework wherever there is a computer, organization of having all work in the same place and much more. More money in technology could improve the learning quality in schools across the United States of America.
“We should invest in preschool programs, quality childcare, and early literacy,”(Gonzales 1). This idea can prepare students to learn before they are in school. Preparing children for school should be a priority, for school would be less challenging for children who already have an experience with basic learning. Investing money in preschool programs would help out children across the country.
Getting rid of homework would also improve the education because of the stress it puts on students. “Homework teaches kids to study, because they have to rather than need to. Similarly, homework doesn’t help children become hard workers, because the work is not self-directed. Want to watch a child work hard and take ownership of learning? Watch a child build a bridge for fun,”(Spencer 1). Instead of homework, more effort should be put into programs outside of school. This would affect the mood and behavior of students in a positive way.
Thank you for your time,
