Reimagining Educational Practices’

 

The system of education is corrupt from the rankings, the cost, and to the quality of education. For instance, in the article, “Higher Education and the Opportunity Gap”,”Children born into the top fifth of the income distribution have about twice as much of a chance of becoming middle class or better in their adult years as those born into the bottom fifth (Isaacs, Sawhill, & Haskins, 2008). One way that lower-income children can beat the odds is by getting a college degree.” This supports the fact that less advantaged students have a greater chance in not getting the opportunity for not getting into a private school. In contrast, from Forbes.com, Jacobs describes how a college enhances your career only, “A college education has enhanced my career, but it has not created one.” This supports the fact that we should reconsider the perspective on how we get to success.
