The four most important factors affecting educational excellence are the quality of the teachers, the quality or usefulness of the education, the amount of money available for educational resources, and the moral quality of the students and parents in the educational system.
The quality of the teachers is a function of their educational achievement level and teaching ability or an ability to inspire students to do their best in the teacher’s field of expertise.
The quality or usefulness of the education is important because non technological fields are increasingly job poor and mostly a waste of time, energy, and money. Educational priorities must urgently be changed in public education to assure job readiness which may mean the introduction of more vocational and technological training programs earlier in the educational process and much less emphasis on team sports, music, drama or theater, languages, history, and the liberal arts in general.
The amount of money available for teacher’s salaries and educational equipment like computers and lab supplies is also very important but poor school districts not only struggle with less money but many bad teachers and also with offspring coming from dysfunctional families. Money alone will not solve the huge basic social drawbacks of offspring coming from dysfunctional and often immoral families.
The quality of the students depends somewhat on genetic inheritance but much can be achieved with a hard working moral family to back up the student. Unfortunately in poor neighborhoods there are many terrible parental unemployed role models, bad adult role models, and bad friend role models often pushing drug use, disrespect, and irresponsible behavior in general.
Interactive useful audio visual interactive computer education available to students in poor neighborhoods is the ultimate solution which will supply the potential for equal opportunity for all citizens if they put in the time, effort, and achievement necessary. Also this useful audio visual interactive computer education should be made available to all unemployed and destitute humans at any age so that they too see some hope out of their seemingly hopeless poor social circumstances.
However, the dysfunctional social environment of a poor neighborhood still has to be addressed with a universal secular moral code taught to all impressionable young student minds.
Teacher’s unions may extort more money from the school system but their emphasis on seniority and not inspirational teacher excellence is a major drawback. Also union general resistance to educational change to useful audio visual interactive computer instruction are severe handicapping tendencies which stifle educational necessary innovation.
Equal educational opportunity for all the citizens, no matter what the age, in poor neighborhoods is the only long duration system which will be more just than the present status quo handicapping existence or system!!!
