CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN EDUCATION and TRAINING Inequalities in economic aspects will have a major impact on the people’s personal, professional and importantly social life. Thus people will have different social backgrounds based on their economic status and that could impact other facets of their life, including education. That is, differences in economic and social aspects will normally lead to categorization of people into different classes, from high, middle to low. It is assumed (may not be the norm) that people belonging to high class (economically and socially), will have a lot going for them starting from their birth to education, profession, personal life, etc.
On the other hand, people from the supposed low class may not be able to get all the constructive things. Although, they may be interested to access all the constructive things particularly education, because of their economic and social drawbacks, they may not be able to do that. In those cases, the role of government and other governing bodies assumes so much importance. From earlier times, government has been coming up with various policies and steps, to give them a platform or backup to aid them in their endeavours.
This is particularly visible in the educational sector. Education plays an important part in the intellectual and mental development of any individual. Education is an imperative part of human life as it directs person particularly young children towards his/her progress. Thus, lack of education could take the lives of people in the negative direction. Although, this is not a norm, as many people without education are shining in various fields, however, the fact is, education provides them the platform to learn a lot of things, and importantly gives them the confidence to go for various optimum targets.
To fulfil this motive only, government has been giving free or subsidized education to the needy target group. Although, this government policy and social initiative is aiding a lot of children and providing positive results, some scepticism has arisen due to the new studies, which show that social background determines pupils success. That is, even if the economically and thereby socially disadvantaged people are given free education in the form of Free Schools and City Academies, it does not guarantee their success.
This implies that the children’s social status is the reason for their lack of success, and the government should reconsider or even stop its free or subsidized education, as it does not lead to success.
