This movie brings up a lot of questions. One of the articles I read talked about how a principal was getting a house built for him as an experiment. The movie we watched in class talks about how there is less funding for the public schools. So it shows the gap and difference on how one school has too much money in their hand and one has less.
The other idea it brought up was how Nicolet High School was a better school than Bay View High School and King High. That shows how parents involvement matters. It was said that Bay View High and Rufus High had the same amount of budget but Rufus High was the better school. It’s not just about how much money is in the budget but also how you spend it that affects the school system.
If the school doesn’t have enough money to provide good education for the students but has enough money to experiment other things, that’s just wrong. If they are, when I say “they”, I mean the school, provides good education, enough teachers to help the students and all the required stuff, even helping students buy text books if they can’t afford it and still has extra money in the budget, then spend it on the experiment.
When comparing the book ‘Death at an early age’ with the movie we watched in class, they have a lot of similarities. One being that how do parents know that the teacher is the right person teaching their kids, which means how do they know that their kids are getting the right education from the right teacher. Because if I was a parent I wouldn’t want my kid in that art teachers class from the book. It’s also the same because they both talk about how parents involvement matters. I think the problem differs from state to state, and school to school.
