Seven Difficult Things About Education


In the United States, public schools are held in such high esteem that they are simply seen as a must-have. It is not unusual for Americans to spend around 20% of their income on education, and it is no wonder why. If we do not invest in our children, there is no future for us to enjoy. However, it does not equate to an easy task — we must be prepared for trials and tribulations that will test our patience and drive. Can we guess your education level based on the books you’ve read? No, because many people have interest in reading books and it is not compulsory that they are reading books of their education level only.

Some of the most difficult questions popping in mind while education:

1. “What will make my child become successful?”

Nice children but only a few make it in life. In addition, children with certain strengths can be taught to have weaknesses. For example, many students are good at writing and speaking while others are good at math and science. Yet in many schools, no one wants to be the last one standing because they might cause a problem for everyone else. A child who has great aspirations of just being smart generally won’t get the support they need from the teacher and the class. But if that student has a need to learn a particular skill, they can be taught. 

2. “How will my Child Deal with his/her Differences?”

It is very difficult to understand other people at times and it is even harder to understand your own child. Many parents feel that the only way their child is different from all of the others are their disabilities. This tends to make them afraid of exposing their child’s difference because they are worried about how the other kids will judge them for it. These parents might feel like there is no way for them to help their children grow. However, as I said earlier, different doesn’t mean less valuable. 

3. “Will my child be able to keep up with their peers?”

Many parents feel like the classes their children are taking are too hard for them, but they don’t want to speak up about it because they don’t want to look like they aren’t capable of raising their own child. Unfortunately, the children start thinking that there is no point in trying if they aren’t going to do good anyway. 

But you should consider that your child may be having trouble in school because you did not prepare them correctly. Sometimes kids can spend hours on homework and still not understand what is happening in class. 

4. “Will my child be able to move forward with life after school?”

There is a common misconception that since your child is in high school, they are now adults and thus must be able to do everything their parents did when they were growing up. Well, the truth is, most things that adults do are against their own best interests. Even though high school marks you as an adult, it does not mean you have to act like it. 

This can lead to some very serious problems for students who don’t see a future for themselves and need help managing it. 

5. “How will my child Make a Difference?”

Education is essential for children to reach their potential. The learning process can be very stressful as children are exposed to many different people, concepts and learning styles in a school system that is not always ideal for all students. It can be very difficult sometimes to keep up with the topics while they are being taught but must continue to complete the assignments because otherwise they will lose credit points earned. 

However, “strategies” can be beneficial in learning and there tends to be a lot of confusion when it comes to locating information on various subjects. This is where teachers “teach” strategies that may work more effectively than guessing what the crafter should do when faced with a similar situation. The key to learning effectively is for the learner to become actively involved in the learning process, which requires that he or she has a certain degree of curiosity and inquisitiveness. 

6. “What will be the impact of my child’s achievement on his/her future?”

It is a very important question and everyone has their own point of view. What do you think? To build up a career kids need to have good grades in schools. So, if a kid got bad grades in school, it would make his life more difficult than necessary. 

7. “Is my child really learning from their education?”

In some schools, students are required to do research over the summer. This is a great opportunity for children because they can work on something that interests them without being required to follow the same structure that they are used to at school.
