Fahrenheit 451 essay Caison Newton
In the modern time we live in, a full education is no longer needed and will therefore be “dumbed down” due to two different reasons. One is technology and the lack of the ability to reach all students effectively. These are the two reasons that our lives are changing everyday as well as changing our education.
The first reason education will be “dumbed down” is because of the lack of the ability to reach all students. Classes are getting more and more crowded year after year especially in over populated areas that do not have enough schools or classrooms to distribute students to. There are so many students in all of the classrooms that soon teachers will not help them all individually like some need it.

Usually this is because the kids have a lack of interest in school. If teachers notice this in their students then they will usually contact the parents and they can get the student to become more interested by telling them what will happen to their life if they do not do well in school.
The second reason that school will be “dumbed down” is because of technology. Today we have smartphones, iPads, iPods, and tablets.

You can Google anything you want and you will have pages and pages of results all on one subject of your choosing. This makes the need to know all the information about something useless. Say you are a chef; you will no longer...
