society interest and cultural protection :

5 comments

will you prefer a society where people prefer to become rich .... to earn money by getting education in science and engineering fields or the society where interests of youth is important ... ? if the youth want to get engaged in art and design but what if the nation don't prefer such group of students!!!! i think now a days education is only limited to the scope of the respected fields ... the absence of interest in quality education which is based on interest and research is lacking !!!!

Today's society really does seem to focus on STEM. What would you recommend?

i would recommend that there should be clear divergence from the so called global focus and our majority interest race ..... i know the ratio of art students and their view is small and not well known .... but there should be a program to encourage this field and make it digital and highly recognized by foreign as well as local business interest !

Definitely! Art students should be encouraged to pursue their interests. In high schools, colleges, or at another time should this program begin?

actually at least in our country ,,,, the art is the basic symbol in our culture ..... and the culture is protected and represented in the better way .... at higher level ,,, parents force their young ones to be the best in science subjects and try to get admission in medical college and engineering .... most of the poor students .. that are very much talented and want to contribute in fine arts are deprived to do so ... because they are forced to earn money and good name by not wasting time in social work and to protect heritage but to be professional in the good earning fields ... the government need to work to improve this field

How should the government encourage education in the arts? Are the arts as financially sustainable in your country as other fields?

    Greetings, fellow Ambassadors, As we know, the July 2018 topic for the Roundtable Discussion is Education Funding. I recently came across this extremely informative resource about education funding. The resource explores how funding has changed over time, and provides statistical data in understanding the changes made over the local, state, and federal level in the USA. Article: http://apps.urban.org/features/education-funding-trends/ As mentioned on their website, the data they they collected "measured the progressivity of school funding as the ratio of two weighted averages of each district’s per-student revenue: (1) weights are the number of poor students; and (2) weights are the number of nonpoor students. For example, an estimate of 1.1 would imply that, on average, poor students attend districts that receive 10 percent more in per-student funding than the districts nonpoor students attend. " (source: http://apps.urban.org/features/education-funding-trends/) What do you all feel about this article and the information put forward by them? Ambassadors belonging to other nationalities, how does education funding work in your country? Could you please share your insights, or any other resources or articles you find valuable? Thank you so much for all your inputs!

    I have been hearing a lot about how it may actually help the school system to get rid of honors and AP classes and but all students into one track. The idea is that the positive impact of the higher students on the lower outweights the negative impact of the lower students on those higher. What do you think? Do you think something like this is fair?

    At the moment, most schools in the U.S. are stressful, highly competetive, and do not have the resources and/or are not looking into the mental health of their students. I work at a local youth organization called Youth United for Change who want to change schools in the Philadelphia district, which consists of a large number of black and brown students facing socioeconmic opression and trauma in their homes and communities. What ideas do you guys have , or elements in your schools that help your mental health and alleviate stress? If you have no answer for that, how does your schoool affect your mental health (negatively and positivey)? Please be specific. I appreciate any answers and would be really helpful to our campaign. :)
