Education is the act of imparting knowledge into one’s mind that is, making him or her aware of the certain information that are not well clear or open to the immediate environment. It is the only magic bullet that is capable of lifting the society from economic doldrums. Lack of good education therefore refers to imparting low level or wrong information to the learners by the teachers or tutors. Poor education has been evident in various non performing institutions across the entire globe. It is therefore important to study the causes, effects and remedies that can be taken to eradicate it from such learning institutions. The causes are as follows:
Poverty is one of the main causes of poor education. It is the state of destitution whereby one is unable to provide for himself or herself with certain important necessities that are quite vital for a living such as shelter, clothing and food. Due to limited income by the poor, they tend to use the available meager funds in acquiring the basic needs which is crucial for their future survival. The consequence of this is that the kids are taken to the institutions which either give free education or are low costly. Such schools lack proper learning facilities (Davis, 2006). Inadequate or lack of appropriate facilities automatically renders learning products from such schools valueless. Besides, most of the tutors are financially driven therefore, very few will be willing to teach in poverty stricken institutions where payments are very low (Davis, 2006). Lack of enough schools in the areas affected by poverty is rampant in certain states such as the Mississippi State.
Investigation and research asserts that the system of education in certain parts of the world is quite bogus. This may include trivial discussions of certain topics with little or no proper analysis of various facts in the topic. Giving students little or no time to think and contribute to the topics being discussed is a threat to the students since they may be able to learn their mistakes. Education system that focuses mainly on different branches of knowledge is of no help and may overload the student for no good reason. Here, the learning institutions are much congested making the environment itself non conducive for learning. The learning materials are less compared student number. Delivery of lecture by the tutor is also not very effective since concentration of the students is much lower (Barbe & Swassing, 1979). Thus, many students end up not gaining the right information meant for them. The tutor may not be able to reach each and every student in person for clear and proper explanation of certain ideas not well understood by the students.
