People are always trying to find things to pinpoint the blame on when discussing the country’s failing schools, some more politically correct than others.
Though we are constantly hammered over the head by proclamations of students’ ineptitude compared to other countries, it seems that the picture is not nearly as clear as proponents of charter schools would like us to think.
Officially, the school’s tuition is $38,550, but every student who attends the school receives a full-tuition scholarship. That used to be true for graduate students as well, but the school has recently put an end to the policy. The school will likely end that for undergraduate students as well.
Those childhood stereotypes can have long-term ramifications; women with Bachelor’s degrees far outnumber men with the same degree, and an estimated 57 percent of college students this year will be women.
As educators have decried the increased emphasis on standardized test scores, with few changes enacted, better nutrition would mean that students could be better able to let learning material sink in and potentially ease certain behavioral problems.
