In these times we know that America is not perfect. There are serious problems with Drugs, Bullying, the education system. That is why I had a dream that one day, these American problems will soon fade away. Drugs in America are bad because of the fact that they cause millions of deaths every year.
Drug deaths take a long time to certify, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not be able to estimate final numbers until November. The Times compiled estimates for 2016 from hundreds of state health departments and county coroners and medical tester. Together they represent data from states that accounted for 75 percent of overdose deaths in 2015. They are a first look at the extent of the drug overdose epidemic last year, a detailed accounting of a modern plague.
Bullying in America has been a long-term problem. For example, Cyberbullying. While the online world can be a great source of entertainment, with a lot of educative materials, games, and opportunities for connectivity, too much of anything can go wrong. Since the Internet allows the ease of creating a parallel reality, this virtual space gives more opportunities for predators, some of which really intend to harm. Instead of taking the fight to the real world, some people and take it to the Internet, and while some are bold about whom they are, many are masked in anonymity and fake personas that interact, perhaps on regular bases and for rather long terms. The education system is another problem in America, that there is a lack of teacher education innovation. It stands to reason that if students are changing, teachers must change too.
More specifically, it is time to modify teacher education to reflect the demands of the modern K – 12 classrooms. There are policy and practice changes taking place all over the world, many driven by teachers. Public education in America needs teachers who are better trained to meet the needs of specific student populations, understand the necessary role of distance learning and are willing to speak up to facilitate classroom change. Without these teachers, effective reform to meet global demand is not possible. Overall, these are the problems in America that stood up the most to me, for the fact that these are the problems that America faces, and that is why today America is imperfect.
