Problems ?

 

 

Problem 1 not everyone is given the same chances to attend university and pursue to higher education

Evidence

 

We live in an ever-changing world, so how come upward mobility is so low ?

 

This can be partially explained by the fact that education, to some extents, creates elitism – as this very notion tends to find its roots in the instrumentality of institutions – and consequently leads to social exclusion.

 

Indeed, within socially stratified societies – from emerging countries to the most developed ones – education is conveyed to socially bar upward mobility and sustain the class system.

Today’s learning framework for early academic years is organised on the basis of a two –tier education system – that is, one for the working class and the other for the upper middle classes. That system implies there is a national curriculum on one hand, for which the content is pre-determined by the state, and a private education sector on another hand for which the national curriculum doesn’t apply, as its institutions design, implement and assess their own. In that context, the way children’s needs are dealt with depends on their families’ social background.

 

The traditional school system, in general, is also a one-size-fits-all provision, it is not geared or tailor-made to provide direct response to the personal needs of the individual pupils.

 

These factors all create des chances inégales , des la petite enfance, pour l’acces a l’université.

 

Problem 3 Ever changing world – the institutions have been the same

 

 

Arguments supporting stance (solutions) 

 

Argument 1 – Accessible to everyone, helps reduce inequalities            and elitism

 

  Evidence – Mooc refugees, Udemy, etc…

Argument 2- Allows students to study at their own pace

  Evidence –

 

 

Argument 3– Teaches skills necessary in the real world, be able to learn and re-learn, self-learning > one way to leadership

    Evidence

 

 

 

Arguments opposing stance (counter arguments)

 

Argument 1 –non-physical attendance, new method, aren’t certified that the long term results will be positive yet

  Refute argument – correspondence degrees are not a new thing, Ben and Jerry’s founders took correspondence degree to learn to make icecream and open their business.

 

Argument 2 – Reduces human contact/interaction

  Refute argument – gives more time to study directly on field, one to one tutoring/mentoring, time in class spent communicating with tutor/instructor

                                               

Argument 3 – Not as well regarded on the job market

  Refute argument – Online classes give certificates that will get more and more consideration over the time.

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

 

Summary of main points – restate thesis while synthetising information from body paragraphs
