    All Public Schools Are Not Created Equal In the United States, education is offered at all levels from pre-kindergarten to graduate school. Elementary and secondary education involves twelve years of schooling the successful completion of which leads to a high school diploma. A distinct feature of the American educational system is its decentralized organization. Three levels of government - local, state, and federal financially support elementary and secondary education. Furthermore, it is divided into public and private institutions. The main disadvantage of decentralization is the quality of education received by some of the students. On the other hand, a real plus to the idea is the fact ...

    Book Review Of Kozol's Savage Inequalities Jonathan Kozol. Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools. New York, Harper Collins, 1991. 262 pp. In this detailed and shocking book, Jonathan Kozol describes the horrific and unjust conditions in which many children in today's society are forced to get their education.

  • Capital Punishment - 1,271 words
    Capital Punishment Martin Ferretti 3/5/00 Capital Punishment Capital punishment was established in this country many years ago to punish those members of society which have committed horrendous crimes against fellow citizens and in a way to give the family of the victims a sense of peace. Various forms of capital and corporal punishment exist around the world and in most cases are very closely related to the religion of the nation. I believe that capital punishment is an atrocious institution and should only be used in those very few cases where rehabilitation is not an option because it does not help the criminal become a member of society. It should be used only for those who kill just for ...

  • Critique Of School Bells By Lewis Lapham - 1,121 words
    Critique Of School Bells By Lewis Lapham School Bells Essay I found Lewis Lapham's article "School Bells" in the August, 2000 edition of Harper's magazine to be not only convincing, but also easy to relate to and truthful. The contents of the article have far-reaching and thought-provoking implications. Much of his argument rests on the nearly indisputable belief that if we, as a nation, devoutly wished to reform or even revolutionize the educational system in place, we undoubtedly could. Factual proof of this is found throughout the history of the United States. We have made significant scientific and societal advances in the last one hundred years as evidenced by the computer, the automobi ...

  • Future Outlook For Local Governments Budgets - 1,296 words
    Future outlook for local governments budgets Under Current fiscal and political environment at national and state level It is not easy to predict the future for any thing, especially when it comes to economics. The economists differ in their opinions more widely than any other profession. However the ability of of local governments in any metropolitan area to provide basic public services and interrelations between cluster of cities in the metro area is directly related to the tax policy. As we enter the 21st. Century, local governments will face challenges to how they raise revenues. Existing local tax system has over the years, developed inherent problems that raise doubts about their abil ...

  • Greg Sirico - 449 words
    Greg Sirico Adv American Gov. November 14th 98 McCulloch v Maryland Can congress incorporate a bank? Can a state tax the national government? These were some of the key issues that brought up in the Supreme Court case of McCullloch v Maryland. James Madison, the judge in this case, rules in favor of the National Government. He proclaimed that it was constitutional to have a national bank, and not appropriate for Maryland to tax the bank. Now we turn the tables toward Maryland. In my reasoning I believe that Maryland can uphold their right to tax the national bank, as well as make claims of the necessary and proper clause being incorrect in its meaning. Maryland in my opinion holds very good ...

  • Political Science Public Schools - 1,204 words
    - Political science Public Schools . Kozol feels that the way in which we fund public schools is arcane and unfair (54). Since most areas in the US rely on property tax in order to fund education, the poorer districts are at a disadvantage over the wealthy districts because of lack of income. This is a problem because the wealthy schools keep getting wealthier and the poor schools keep getting poorer. For example Kozol points to the inner city schools of Chicago in comparison with a suburban high school (New Trier). He states that the schools like New Trier receive about $90000 more dollars a year than the inner city schools, when the inner city schools could really use that money to fix up ...

  • Revolutionary Opinion - 1,557 words
    Revolutionary Opinion They all say, ?Taxation without representation is tyranny.? Those revolutionary fools! Surely they jest! I am well aware that many of my fellow townspeople believe in this notion. It is rather sensible, after all. Who really likes to pay taxes? Not I! However, all those that subscribe to this train of thought are living in a dream world. In reality, it is the other way around. ?Representation without taxation is tyranny.? Revolution is futile and will only result in more taxes for the whiners to gripe and moan about. Frankly, I?ve had enough. A few days ago, I saw some protesters walking down the road chanting and marching with signs that read Taxation Without Represent ...
