#Education inequality

With the continuous development of social science and technology, advanced electronic equipment emerge in an endless stream. The development of high technology means that young people need to keep learning these high technologies to adapt to the development of The Times. But as people continue to learn about the use of new technologies, they also face some challenges.

The first challenge comes from educational inequality. The level of development of the country and the level of development of the region to a certain extent determines the level of education of the people in the country and the region. Backward countries, such as Asian, African and Latin American developing countries, have a lower educational level than developed countries. In some poor parts of Africa, teachers may use only blackboards and desks. Children in rural China also have to carry heavy backpacks to school every day because they don’t have laptops and need to take notes by hand. Unlike children in urban areas, they can not only use computers or mobile phones to get the latest information but also look up information. They were disconnected from the world because there was no wi-fi. Their only source of knowledge may be textbooks, which may also require donations from governments and charities and may be used. The lack of education level limits the knowledge they are exposed to since childhood.The quality of education is also limited. Without government subsidies, teachers in poor and backward areas are not paid well, so many teachers who have received higher education are not willing to teach in backward mountainous areas. Most of the people who went to teach in the mountains were volunteers and people who had no education at all。

The second challenge comes from students who have the opportunity to receive a quality education. For these children from good families, they are still willing to learn low-end technology instead of high-end technology, although they have the opportunity to learn and be exposed to many high and new technologies. In my opinion, the reason why they are not willing to learn new and high technologies is that these technologies are hard to master. For those who are willing to learn high and new technology, their purpose of learning high and new technology is to find a good job in the future. The development of The Times, the job market is more and more urgent need for those skilled in high-tech talents. Learning new technology means you can get a better job.

I think education should be fair. Only by constantly shortening the differences in education level can more people receive the best education. The special group is one, the national education resources allocation is also a very important question.

  1. HI Wenying,
    Thanks for posting about this extremely important topic. You will be interested in UN Sustainable Development Goal # 9 which seeks to find ways to address some of these profound inequalities around digital access and education. It is shocking to know that, “In the developed world, for example, over 80% of individuals use the Internet; in the developing world, less than 35% do. ”
