Poverty and Education: Solutions?

Poverty and Education: Solutions? | poverty assignment _lihaoyu | Scoop.it
Poverty effects education.  It effects test scores.  It effects teacher and student motivation.

 

Time to rethink all the sloppy attempts at reform.  We are missing the boat.

Hao Yu Li's insight:

Education is important for a country's growth. And good education is supplied by the government. Because of poverty, the government cannot afford the high payment, neither can the poor families. No money leads to lose everything. The teachers cannot get enough training and they do not have wide sight of the world. The students do not have books or primary stationaries. It is not easy for them to get good education compared with the rich families. I cannot think of their future without being educated. They might be poor as when they were young. And the country might not grow a lot.

Education is one of the most important thing in life and it matters alot. Without it you would not be able to get a proper job and a proper salary. I thought poverty only affects in food, water and socially for a child but i was surprise that education plays a big part when your are poor and it is a big challenge to overcome it. This will afftect the students studying in the school. He will have negative thoughts about himself and will be anti social. They are doing part time job while studying and it will really afect thier studies as it is difficult to multitask.Eventually they drop out or do badly. Hence if they work hard with the right midset, they can definely succeed

Edwin Ong's curator insight, January 18, 2:40 AM

Poverty is really getting serious day by day and it causes many problems to humans. It is the starting problem of many problems and this makes a never-ending cycle once started. As seen from the news above, poverty is started and it affects education, followed by the test scores. It even has the ability to affect teacher and student motivation. Therefore concluding that the word "Poverty" is related to just about every possible negative life outcome one could imagine.

After reading this particular article, I felt disappointed and at the same time, worried for the education system there. I am depressed to learn that the school reform efforts actively ignore the research on poverty in education. They focus instead on test scores and even gaps between high scores and low scores! Seeing that efforts have been made to try and fight the effects of poverty but ultimately losing because of being exhausted, dispirited, I felt worried for the people who are living there in poverty. Even the politicians dare not say the word "Poverty", who knows what will hapen next!

In many cases, i truly believe that poverty can be stopped by helping those in need. For example, we can start to make a difference by helping the needies by donating some money to different charities.

Not onl;y helping  charities, we can also start to give some money to elderies when they sell tissues in the market or hawker centres.

I believe that "to give is to receive". We can and have the ability to stop poverty from spreading throughout the world.

My insight

Poverty affects education, i think that that is very true. when students have to worry about their daily meals, how can they concentrate and study. And when students cant do their work properly, they fail, and when they grow up, they will find it hard to find a job. More should be done to help students who are in need of financial help.

Hao Yu Li's insight:

It is hard to believe that there are nearly half of asians living in poverty. Maybe it's because of the history in last century. Some of them even live on one doller a day. I wonder that many people spend thousands of dollers to buy luxury, while other people are struggling with food and some daily issues. The world is so unfair as if some are living in the paradise while others are living in the hell. In Asia, the poverty is a serious problem. Poverty leads to bad education, insufficient food, bad living condition and so on. We cannot do many things alone, but as we unite together to help them, the absolute poverty will not occur any more.

Yu Bixun's curator insight, February 2, 2013 8:52 AM

I can see that about two-third of the world's poorest people are from Asia. India had more than three hundred million of people living in poverty which is the greatest in the world. And because of this, many are uneducated with more time spent on fishing instead of studying. I think that wars are the main contributions to poverty as wars destroyed many farms, crops, settlements and people which caused many to be living in poverty. I think the children who are fishing or playing should attend schools as education can help them end their poverty state. People who are not in poverty state, we should excel in our studies and work hard in it as we are very lucky to be studying with proper education to look for job when we grow up. I wonder if regaining back their farms, industries and settlements could end their poverty state.

Form the above picture, i can see that there is an adult with 3 children in the picture taken above.It is pretty clear that the people above do not come form a wealthy family.Their clothing tells me that there are in a poor state of living..(see)


The children and the in the picture above did not smile when the picture is taken which i think that they are not happy. It may probally because needs are not met for their daily living.(think)


I wonder what there real problem is, weather is it because of money or other matter. I wonder if the goverment or anyone could help them in anyways.(wonder)

Tan Yang Heng Terence's curator insight, February 2, 2013 9:18 AM

After reading this article, i realised another factor leading to poverty in India. It is the Hinduism belief of caste system in India. It is the main religion in India. India have the most amount of people living in poverty in a countrycomparing to the rest of the countries. Almost all of them living in poverty earned less than $1 a day. Long hours of work and effort is put to that $1 that does not seems much in our eyes. 522 millions of people of India are suffering this unbearable situation. This system prevents many people from trying to break their poverty. It is very unfair as not everyone is given a chance to start out equal. Why does the poverty of the previous generation have to burden the future generations? However, a stop to such practise is equivalent to the lost of the culture. Thus, they will never have a chance to break poverty. They will be continue to be despise by others at the top of the caste system. It is such injustice.

There is a vicious, self-reinforcing cycle of poverty associated with mental illness. You become poor. Sometimes through circumstances well beyond your control,

Hao Yu Li's insight:

From this article, I come to learn that poverty can influence one's metal seriously. I used to think that one person who is poverty has bad living condition, bad clothes and innutritious food. Now I learn that one person lives in poverty would spend lots of time worrying about how to pass the next day. They live in stress and fear. They would feel as if they are being discriminated. Even though they want to get out of such living style, they might find it hard because of their eroding mind. The problem of individual poverty is not easy to solve.

The picture depicts the poor sleeping on the pavement. Living in poverty allows one to face many challenges and difficulties in life. The article tells us the interconnection between poverty and mental illness. Living in poverty for a long period of time can cause health and mental issues too. You will stress out and worry about many problems regarding the lack of money, and not eating enough nutritional food which cost more than processed food. Mental health intervention programs are setup to alleviate people’s difficulties and improve their mental state. We should support these programs and help others to recover from poverty and mental illness by giving our support. The government should also do their part to look after the citizens and prevent poverty.

crystal chin jing's curator insight, February 3, 2013 7:16 AM

Healthcare is one such essential need a government provides for its citizen. Health care is a public good which governments have to provide for the people, given the limited resources and competing need of the country. However in less developed countries, people do not have adequate basic health care facilities. One example is India, where diarrheal disease, lower respiratory infection, neonatal disorder, measles, HIV and tetanus are common. Even though the government tries to improve the situation, there are still insufficient doctors, nurses, clinic and medicine to meet the need of the people. I feel sympathizes for the people in India. Many lives were taken away due to insufficient healthcare facilities. I am concerned about the feeling of the people when their loves one was grievously taken away.  I feel very fortunate and lucky to live in Singapore where the government is better able to provide good quality health care for the citizen.

's curator insight

After reading this article, I'm shocked to find out that poverty has such a great impact on mental illness.When people become jobless or fall ill and recieve government grants, they become stressed about money and the fact that even the social workers and others often encourage a person to remain “disabled” or in poverty to continue receiving the full benefitsof being jobless and feeding of the government's money.The financial programs also often discourage work or even looking for work, and punish the jobless financially because as soon as they  find work as the government grant will be cut off suddenly, leaving them with very little money and low income in most cases contributing to more people getting mental illnesses such as depression as the cannot handle stressful thought of not having money to support themselves. In this propective, I feel that the government is not thinking enough about it's people and that they should have a 'weaning' period for the people who were previously financially assistaed which may motivate more people to find jobs as thier income would not be cut off suddenly. This shows us the huge impact poverty has on mental health.

Hao Yu Li's insight:

Sometimes, poverty and lack of water are linked. The people shown are poor because of the dry weather and lack of water. In order to get enough water for vegetation and people,they have to search for more. However, this will defintely lead to a more serious circumstance, because the water will run out and all the living things will die.Poverty therefore is the consequence of the pollution and waste of the indispensible resource.

Poon Ying Ying's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:22 AM

From this article we can see that the people are lack of water supply due to climate change, population growth and poverty. We all know the water is an essential tool in our lives for survival, without water we cannot live. There are many purposes of water, for drinking purposes, cooking, bathing, washing and growing crops. The people living in the Moroccan Desert have been sustaining water through an advanced medieval system of lengthy underground tunnels, known as khettara that channel groundwater to the plots. Now the system have been augmented by the rumbe of water pumps and black plastic webs of drip systems and problems rises. I wonder how the people living in the desert are going to survive without water supply to  quench their thirst and grow crops to feed their kids?

Iris Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:24 AM

I can see from the trailer of the video that the Moroccan Desert might no longer be able to cultivate crops for the people to eat. Water is scarce and from the pictures of the dried up ground, I can see that droughts often occur. With the increasing temperature all around the world with extreme weather patterns occurring, the land might soon be too dry to cultivate any further. This film about the relation of poverty and water allows viewers to understand the situation that these people are facing. By exploring this situation in details, I think that the director hopes to bring across the message that we should try our best to save as much water as possible. However, if the day when the land becomes unsuitable for planting, how will the people survive as water is essential to survive? Will they adapt new plantation method?

Jacob Ng's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:34 AM

From this article, we can clearly see that the Moroccan Desert has a lack of water due to various problems that they faced.Like for example the Khettaras , where there go to get their supply of water is slowly drying up due to problems like climate change, population growth and conflicts of rights etc.Water is an essential need in our daily lives, we need it for hydrating purposes and as well as planting crops.With all these problems cloggin up their essential needs in life, how are they gonna live on their everyday.Thus, despite all these hardship it hink that these people have a strong will in living on no matter what comes their way.

Hao Yu Li's insight:

The course of the poverty in this article is the extreme weather. The people who are farming are not rich thenmselves. The weather made their lives even worse. They didn't harvest a lot. Some even didn't harvest anything. It's hard to think how they can live their lives with no food. The unpridictable disasters made the poor people poorer, made their lives harder. If no one is going to help, they can hardly get out of poverty.
