Changing US Demographics Impact on Education
The population in the United States grew so fast and reached 315.504.000 in 2012. According to One World Nation Online (2006), the United States is the third biggest country on earth, with 9,629,091 km and 6.5% of the land. This population and wide land need many schools and universities to cover them properly. In this essay, I will discuss the impact of demographics on American education through the coming of immigrants, opening of majors, changing policy and opening of new schools.
Immigration has an obvious negative and positive impact on education in the United States. History shows that America started from the immigration to America from all the parts of the world. Those millions of people settled down all over America. Therefore, the oldest and the first universities in the United States are located on the east coast of America because the East coast was the side where the immigrants first landed during the 17th and the 18th centuries. Example of those universities include Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, College of William and Mary Williamsburg in Virginia, Yale University in New Haven Connecticut, Princeton University in Princeton New Jersey, Columbia University in New York City, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Brown University in Providence, Rutgers New Brunswick in New Jersey, Dartmouth College. Hanover in New Hampshire. Moreover, during the 19th and the 20th centuries, many universities were established in all America to offer seats for growing number of immigrants. In the past, the immigrants had a negative impact on...
...The United States, the third most populous country globally, accounts for about 4.5% of the world’s population. The U.S. population, currently estimated at 308.7 million persons, has more than doubled since its 1950 level of 152.3 million. More than just being double in size, the population has become qualitatively different from what it was in 1950. As noted by the Population Reference Bureau, “The U.S. is getting bigger, older, and more diverse.” The objective of this report is to highlight some of the demographic changes that have already occurred since 1950 and to illustrate how these and future trends will reshape the nation in the decades to come through 2050.
The Census Bureau projects that the U.S. population will continue to grow, to almost 440 million persons by year 2050, albeit at a slower pace than the growth recorded over the past half-century. More pessimistic growth projections are offered by the United Nations and the Social Security Administration, which estimate that the U.S. population will be 404 million or 411 million respectively in the same year.
The Census Bureau assumes that the growth rate will remain positive through year 2050, but will fluctuate over the time period. The current level of 0.8% per year will increase through 2030 to closer to 0.9% per year. After 2030 the growth rate is expected to return to 0.8%.
The Census Bureau uses...
...Assess the impact of a growing and ageing population
Australia’s population is largely increasing and it is ageing. Each year the population increases by 1.3% and has a population of 9% over 70 years old. This is an issue because as one ages, they become more at risk of chronic diseases such as dementia, CVD and cancer and may have multiple diseases The growing and ageingpopulation has a significant impact on the health care system.
The health systems and services are those which include hospitals, health care centres and general practitioners.. The growing and ageing population is at an increased risk of chronic diseases such as CVD and cancer due to age being a crucial factor. These services are used for treatment, early detection, screening, rehabilitation and caring These services are necessary for the aged and growingpopulation due to an increased risk of contracting a chronic disease such as cancer or CVD which makes the elderly more likely to use these services for longer periods of time. This trend has caused the government to use larger amounts of funding on the Australian health system as the demands on the services provided, such as Meals on Wheels and rehabilitation facilities, are becoming increasingly high. As a result, due to the increased need for government funding, the...
...Population Growth Rate: Highest to Lowest Rate
Nigeria: 1st Egypt: 2nd Mexico: 3rd
India: 4th USA: 5th China: 6th
1.How do you suppose living conditions differ between the countries furthest along in the demographic transition compared to the country earliest in the transition? How would living conditions in these two countries affect both birth and death rates?
The living condition for countries earlier in the demographic transitions such as health and food supply are improving. Thus better health conditions decrease death rates and more food supply can lead to increasing birth rates. Since living conditions (health and food supply) are more stable in countries further along the demographic transition and more opportunities are available for women, death rates and birth rates remain fairly low.
2.Think of three social factors that contribute to lower birth rates in the countries farther along. How might these social conditions be encouraged to emerge in less developed countries?
Education, religion and economic status are three factors that contribute to lower birth rates. Providing an education and shifting away from “blue collar” workers gives an opportunity to both men and women, thus providing an upwards movement in the economic status of that individual. With more...
... PopulationImpact of the Affordable Care Act on North Carolina’s Uninsured
In 2010 the American government passed new health care legislation, called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), in order to reform the United States health care system. This health care reform opens the door for some Americans who have never been eligible for affordable health care insurance to obtain it beginning in 2014 (Sparer, 2011). All the states will enact this legislation but some will limit the provision provided to their citizens (Kaiser Commission, 2013). North Carolina is one of the states that have chosen not to enact all of the ACA’s provisions (Kaiser Commission, 2013). In this paper, I will look at health care reforms’ economic and ethical issues for residents and health care organizations in North Carolina compared to its influence nationally.
Overview of United States Health Care Reform
Knowledge of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) provisions is essential before looking at health care reform effects on North Carolina. The health care reform law’s goal is it to decrease the number of uninsured citizens and increase health care regulations so that health care quality increases in a cost efficient way (Sparer, 2001). The law’s first provision is to increase health care coverage to United State citizens, as an ethical advancement to move...
...Characteristics of the U.S. population in 2025
The United States is the third most populated country in the world. This country holds about 4.5% of the world’s population. The U.S. population is currently estimated to have 308.7 million persons. This number is more than double of the population from 1950. Besides the fact of the population has doubled its size, the population has also become qualitatively different from the one from 1950. As noted by the Population Reference Bureau, “The U.S. is getting bigger, older, and more diverse.” The growth of the population is the result of the trends over time in the relationship of increased births, decreased deaths, and increased net immigration.
Population Growth, Birth, Death, and Net Immigration Rates:
United States, 1950-2050
Despite the growth of the U.S. population during this period, the United States’ portion of the world’s total population has been declining compared to less developed, higher fertility countries where the population have grown more rapidly. The Census Bureau projects that the U.S. population will continue growing. The projection is that the population will be almost 440 million persons...
"PopulationEducation or population awareness refers to factual knowledge about population dynamics required to understand the nature and magnitude of the burden imposed by rapid population growth"
Aims and objectives of populationeducation?
PopulationEducation is one of the upcoming educational innovations in the world. It has a relatively short history. The first national seminar on PopulationEducation was held in Mumbai in 1969. Now the inevitable question arises that what this PopulationEducation is.
First of all I have to confess that it is not at all an easy task to define PopulationEducation. Several experts have attempted various definitions of PopulationEducation but a universally accepted definition is yet to be found. The Regional Seminar on Population and Family life Education, UNESCO, Bangkok, 1970 defines: "It is an educational program which provides for a study of population situation in family, community, nation and the world, with the purpose of developing in the students, rational and responsible attitudes and behavior towards that situation."
According to Prof. Noel David Burleson: "PopulationEducation or...
Chinese Tiger Moms versus American Values
Today people have different cultures, a lot of different meanings and a lot of different views on how to raise a child. People from America have a more causal view opposite people from China. In China people are used to a stricter upbringing. All over the world, people are different and have different opinions about how a child shut be raised.
As mentioned above, People from America have a more causal view opposite people from China. Parenting in China is mostly very strict, and these Asian children are mostly become very successful in school and in the business.
An example of strict parenting is able to find in the very notorious book “Chinese Tiger Moms” by Amy Chua. It is a very controversial book, where Amy Chua explains how she raised her children “the Chinese way” in America. It’s about a mom who raises her children and afterwards become the Tiger mom.
Amy Chua’s children were not allowed to watch TV or play Computer games. They were also not allowed to have play dates or sleepovers. They also had to play violin or Piano. If Amy Chua’s children said “they could not do something”, Amy Chua command, them to do it until they were very good at it. In school they were not allowed to get a grade under “A”, and if that happened it would be considered as a bad grade and they will get a punishment. Amy Chua calls this Chinese style parenting. If you look at the success...
...Impact of EducationEducation is one of the most essential necessities of a personal life because without education, we would not have a brighter future. In two essays “Learning to Read and Write” and “A Homemade Education”, Malcolm and Douglass describe what they have gone through in order to become more successful in their pursuits in life. While Malcolm X lived part of his life in prison, he spent his time writing numerous definitions from a dictionary amongst the walls and tables. The elements of the dictionary motivated him to not only become a free man, but a well educated one at that. Douglass, who also taught himself, began his life in slavery. But after a series of attempts, he escapes from slavery and pursues into his educational life in order to find a way to free all slaves from this madness. People pursue in education with different purposes, but the main reasons are to have a better job, develop their knowledge of understanding and improving oneself to become a better person.
To begin, individuals pursue an education primarily because everybody dreams of having a successful career. To achieve these goals, they have to be adequately educated. In my childhood, I was raised with having high ambition to becoming a doctor to help people. My family shows great support for this career choice because it is considered a valuable job in receiving high pay. Recently,...
