Explain the history and organization of educational systems in the United States
The development of the current education system in US started in the 19th century. However, it all started by Jefferson suggesting the opening of a public school, which played a significant role in the formation of current education system. Introduction of the system was important because the previous system had dissimilar discrimination in religion, race and gender among others. The previous system discouraged the admission of girls to schools and they undertook different subjects with boys. This went on until 1950s where there were segregations in schools between the south and the African Americans, which ended in 1980s. The previous system did not require every person to attend school because it viewed it as luxury, which has been changing with time where in the contemporary society, it is necessary for every child to attend school.
Describe the teacher's responsibility/accountability in meeting both school/district and state/national policies and requirements.
The main aim of a school is to equip students with high quality education. Moreover, it is important to note that students differ since each one has varying needs. Consequently, there are different individuals that can help in meeting these needs including parents, teachers and the school district among others. Apart from the normal curriculums in schools, teachers also teach other students during extra time, because the mastering skills of students differ. Furthermore, some teachers perform the responsibilities of a coach making it important for them to be careful on their actions because students learn from them.
Describe the school/district's responsibility to students, parents and in meeting state/national policies and requirements.
According to the national and state policies, the school district has dissimilar responsibilities to conduct. This is possible because the government in US funds the schools hence putting forward some expectations that they should meet. For example, the government assesses and tests students in order to determine whether schools and teachers attain the intended objectives. These tests include the proficiency tests, graduation tests and achievement tests among others. Furthermore, the district also undertakes the responsibility of ensuring that both students and parents meet the national requirements. The schools must also ensure that students acquire the type of education that will be beneficial in their future as well as offer them the special needs that they might require. Additionally, parents participate in different meetings conducted in school in order to determine the progress of their children. The meetings also enable parents to understand what is going on in school. Finally, the schools send weekly newspapers and sometimes the syllabus to the school district for analysis.
