Furthermore, student success can not be forced upon any one and must be approached from a less traditional angle than I have seen thus far.
The out come of my own personal experiences has made me a sort of expert in the field of student success. Going from a special education program to the honors program, has taken me many places and taught me many lessons.
A report issued by America’s State Department declared that having seen off “failed experiments” with authoritarian and totalitarian forms of government, “it seems that now, at long last, democracy is triumphant.”Such hubris was surely understandable after such a run of successes.
But stand farther back and the triumph of democracy looks rather less inevitable.
Decolonialisation created a host of new democracies in Africa and Asia, and autocratic regimes gave way to democracy in Greece (1974), Spain (1975), Argentina (1983), Brazil (1985) and Chile (1989).
Presidential Essays Success Stories
The collapse of the Soviet Union created many fledgling democracies in central Europe.
Their placards called for closer relations with the European Union (EU), an end to Russian intervention in Ukraine’s politics and the establishment of a clean government to replace the kleptocracy of President Viktor Yanukovych. Democracies are on average richer than non-democracies, are less likely to go to war and have a better record of fighting corruption.
But their fundamental demand is one that has motivated people over many decades to take a stand against corrupt, abusive and autocratic governments. More fundamentally, democracy lets people speak their minds and shape their own and their children’s futures.
These ideals may not fit the paradigm of student success held by a school.
Therefore, student success is a difficult subject to understand.
