A nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position.

National curriculum may stand as a nation pathway to gain standardization. However, the implementation is not merely surrounded by benefit, as the case of uniqueness on education is still challenging. I too agree that while a nation should have a standard of education, the exception of some cases have to ponder too.

Studying in same national curriculum until college, a pathway of developing standard is built. In general, national curriculum is just element of education in every child which provides the outline core knowledge around teacher to help student gain a similar of educational achievement. Then, if it is well implemented, students are helped a lot in their undergraduate owing to sophisticated base that is taken by their nation. Despite the higher acknowledgement of western education, a tangible example in ASEAN can be seen in Singapore national curriculum. School graduates from Singapore can easily continue their undergraduate in US without any matriculation while another ASEAN school graduated should do. This then proofs that primary to high school national curriculum has taken its function appropriately.

On the other hand, in the case of indigenous education, curriculum similarity could not be accepted. Taking examples on disable learner cases, they need adaptation either in the curriculum material or in the educational infrastructure, blind students need braille textbook with special teacher, the deaf need more that sound system in language laboratory and students with paralytic illness need special material in sports. Due to those cases, what if the similar national curriculum for schoolchildren is strictly operated? Could they get similar opportunity like the other schoolchildren?

In conclusion, applying same national curriculum for elementary to high school elementary would appropriately guide student to get the similar expertise. However, some cases of student with disabilities have to highly consider too.

Sekar, I think that you should rethink your response to the essay. Specifically, I would like you to reconsider the 2nd part of your essay where you talk about students with special needs. Just because they are blind or deaf does not mean that they cannot study the standardized curriculum. n fact, they should study the standardized curriculum in order to prove that they can perform just like the normal ability students.Just because they need special tools to study does not limit their intellectual ability. What I would like you consider is the following for your response.

In the United States, they have a standardized system of education. However, they also have specialized schools for students who display a specific talent before reaching college age. The reason they have these arts and performance schools, culinary schools, and high school vocational schools is because they want the students to hone their talents and properly prepare them for more advanced education in the same field when they reach college. While they still have high school lessons, the concentration of the school is not on the standard curriculum. These students benefit highly from the non-standardized education because it helps them learn what is of real interest to them. It helps them become a more productive part of the nation sooner rather than later. Do you think that such deviation from the national curriculum is bad in this case?

When you discuss such essays, try to look at the international picture of the issue. In this case, not all nations adhere to the standardized education curriculum for their "specially talented" students. It did not lessen the impact of the national curriculum, in fact, it enhanced it. So maybe, not all the high school students need to study the standard curriculum in order to learn?

Remember, the GRE is designed to show that you have a more intricate knowledge of general events in the world. As a masters degree student, you are expected to have a higher level of understanding and exposure to various topics. So, you need to show that you understand the world view of education in this particular essay in order to get a better score for this prompt. Prompts like these try to test your knowledge of popular and contemporary culture. So make sure you are well informed in those aspects of discussion just in case :-)
