Every child deserves a good education. Even at young ages, children have the capacity to learn and develop their skills. That is why it is so important for children to learn the basics when they are young. Providing children with a strong educational foundation will make sure they can succeed in further schooling.
Sometimes, however children aren’t receiving the quality of education they deserve. Maybe the school doesn’t have enough resources and must cut classes from the curriculum or maybe teachers are overworked and cannot provide children with adequate assistance and attention. If this is the case, teachers and parents must turn to advocacy. Child education is important. If parents and teachers lobby for a better learning environment, children will benefit.
One of the surest ways to get results is advocacy. Child education is a cause that politicians can not ignore. Schools need the proper funding to provide children with the education they deserve.
One of the first things to go when schools are short funding is classes such as art, music and theatre. Since these classes are necessary to provide children with a well rounded education, many groups, particularly arts and community groups, will try to reinforce the importance of these classes by turning to advocacy. Child education in the arts is important as art helps children develop their minds and engages their creativity.
Physical education and nutrition classes are also cut when schools do not have the necessary funding. These classes teach children the importance of exercise. Physical education teaches them how to lead healthy lives by making healthy choices. Children will learn to socialize through group sports. These classes are important for children and are worth parent and teacher advocacy. Child education should include the arts and physical education classes.
Many teachers do not have the time or resources to devote to advocacy. Child education needs parents who can commit to bettering their children’s school lives and education as a whole. Paren’ts should get involved in the schools and become aware of the level of education their children are receiving.
If parents are dissatisfied with their child’s education or believe their children deserve more, parents should consult with teachers and take other steps to help them lobby for more resources or more teaching staff. Paren’ts should form lobby groups. These groups should include concerned citizens, other parents and teachers. Advocate whenever and wherever you can the chance to make sure that you are getting your message out to a broad audience.
Children are worth the effort. In order for them to receive a quality education, they need parents and teachers lobbying for them.
