ComprehensionScenario in Achieving Goal
Thehighlighted points on Jos’ performance shows out some of the keyshortcomings the student face as he strives to improve his grades toachieve the educational goals. Although there are strong points toexplain Jos’ reading failure, I also disagree with the author inthe sense that he majored only on the failures but failed to givemore clarification on the success of the educational system.Education is known to shape the lifestyles of people. In particular,there are specific ideas that the school system must meet for them tocompete for international achievement, and excel in all subjects.Indeed, there are obvious reasons as to why Jos would fail to attainhis goal. However, the strategy to be adopted is to appreciate theteachers in their hard work by increasing their wage rates.
Teachersoften give their best to students when their morale is high, and thistranslates into positive performance by the students (Simkin,Crews and Groves, 2012 Tarasat and O`Neill, 2012). InAmerica for example, the education sector is much undermined, andalthough teachers are perceived to be trained professionals, theirpay is wanting (Boyer and Hamil, 2008). With this regard, theirmorale is kept low, and they cannot deliver to their very best, whichin turn have dire consequences on students’ performance. Theanalysis of the IRIS Center on Jos performance shows that he was notnearer to the top spot when it comes to international evaluation thatmeasures the reading skills, although his performance on math andscience was better. However, making the students compete fairly withother international students demands none, but teachers who havedevoted wholeheartedly to assist students in the advanced work(Kung-Teck,Russo & McDowall, 2013).In other words, teachers’ involvement in making changes to theeducational system is critical, and this is what Ms. Lundy need toconsider.
Howthen can Ms. Lundy make teaching profession look more attractive forher student to ensure that he obtain the desired goal? When she fullyanswers such question, the reports of Jos’ non-performance willcease. It is evident that classroom management and experience is aplus, and so it is capable of winning the confidence of teachers, andthrough this, it is likely to turn out to be an admired professionthat nature students with poor reading ability. A pool of knowledgecoming from different professionals enhance sharing of such knowledgewith students, and consequently, works against isolation a closeenemy to every improvement effort (Boyer and Hamil, 2008). Concisely,it is about changing the already existing system, and adopt thatwhich favor teachers to assist Jos to attain education goal.
Basedon the information provided, it is imperative to analyze all theavailable reasons to determine, which key areas need to bemaintained, and how much effort is needed. However little it mightbe, an appreciation can mean great to the provider of the service orresources (Xiong,2015).).As people may continue to blame Ms. Lundy for the decliningperformance of Jos, moving from the orthodox system of education tocondemn educational system should never be doubted. One thing iscertainly clear that no single person can dispute the value ofeducation however, how Jos is putting up strategies to attain hisgoals and merge the existing gaps. With the review of what it takesto bolster Jos’ education, Ms. Lundy concern should come outclearly to end this struggle to help Jos achieve his educationaltargets.
