Recently, there has been a heated discussion about how to educate children.
Should we strictly discipline or let nature take its course? Is it a fair choice or an unfair distribution?
Biden’s “three fires” reveals the educational idea
Education is a major event in any country and region, especially in the United States.
At the beginning of Biden’s term of office, President of the United States rushed to live up to his several “plans” that needed to burn money. In addition to the well-known employment plans and infrastructure plans, American family plans were also his heavyweight. At the end of April, he delivered a speech at a joint session of the house and Senate of Congress, announcing a $1.8 trillion “American family plan” for children, students and families.
This plan, of course, includes medical insurance for low-income people, and many of the contents are related to education and children.
Including kindergarten and pre-school education, of which about $225 billion is spent on child care, Biden called for planning child care centers from scratch to provide a variety of options to expand the scope of affordable and accessible child care. Two hundred billion dollars will be spent on universal pre-school education, providing free pre-school education for all three and four year olds. Child care workers will have a minimum wage of $15 per hour, with additional compensation based on eligibility.
It also includes subsidies for universal university education. Of this, 109 billion is used to provide free community colleges for every American for two years. Biden also asked for an additional $80 billion per grant. This will increase the maximum reward for students by about $1400. The plan also calls for a $62 billion strategic investment in educational institutions to improve the retention and completion rates of universities, especially community universities. The $46 billion investment provides “two-year tuition subsidies for students from families earning less than $125000” who attend the four-year historic black college or University (HBCU), tribal college or University (TCU) or ethnic minority services (MSI).
In addition to the incentive for children and students, teachers can not be less incentive. The plan provides $9 billion for teachers to “train, equip and diversify American teachers to ensure that our high school graduates are ready for success.”. Among them, 900 million US dollars will be used for special education teacher development. Biden asked Congress for $1.6 billion to help current teachers get the certificates they need, and to double scholarships for future teachers from $4000 to $8000 a year.
