PTE Repeated Questions – Summarize Written Text
1 ) Australian Education
Different cultures have different ideas on relationships and how they are viewed and acted out. For example love and romance are seen to be very important in the western cultures and marriages are based on this, however in non-western cultures, such as china, love and romance are less important. To Western cultures ‘falling in love’ is seen to be a vital part of growing up and Erikson (1968) believed that the establishment of an intimate relationship is an essential part of young adulthood which if unsuccessful can lead to social isolation.
A study which supported the fact that different cultures have their own ideas on relationships was carried out by Moore and Leung (2001) who compared 212 students, born and studying in Australia, with 106 students born in China but studying in Australia. They found that 61% of the Australian students were in relationships compared to only 38% of Chinese students. They also found that Australian males were more casual about relationships than Australian females whereas both Chinese males and females shoed similar levels of romance. This shows that there is a difference in the nature of relationships in different cultures as the Australian students and the Chinese students showed different results and different ideas on relationships.
This study however is lacking in population validity and can therefore not be generalised to everybody in other cultures. This is because it was carried out on a sample of all similar aged people of only two different cultures who were all living in Australia which is not a representative sample of the whole population causing the study to have low external validity.
2) SLP Officer
Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to reduce crime rates and educate students.
The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been allocated to public and private high schools across the state.
Organizers say the officers, who began work last week, will build positive relationships between police and students. But parent groups warned of potential dangers of armed police working at schools in communities where police relations were already under strain.
Among their duties, the SLPs will conduct crime prevention workshops, talking to students about issues including shoplifting, offensive behavior, graffiti and drugs, and alcohol. They can also advise school principals.
One SLP, Constable Ben Purvis, began work in the inner Sydney region last week, including at Alexandria Park Community School’s senior campus. Previously stationed as a crime prevention officer at The Rocks, he now has 27 schools under his jurisdiction in areas including The Rocks, Redfern and Kings Cross.
Constable Purvis said the full-time position would see him working on the broader issues of crime prevention.
“I am not a security guard,” he said. “I am not there to patrol the school.
We want to improve relationships between police and schoolchildren, to have a positive interaction. We are coming to the school and giving them the knowledge to improve their own safety.”
The use of fake ID among older students is among the issues he has already discussed with principals.
Parents’ groups responded to the program positively but said it may spark a range of community reactions.
3) Children Watch TV
Why and to what extent should parents control their children’s TV watching? There is certainly nothing inherently wrong with TV. The problem is how much television a child watches and what effect it has on his life. Research has shown that as the amount of time spent watching TV goes up, the amount of time devoted not only to homework and study but other important aspects of life such as social development and physical activities decreases.
Television is bound to have its tremendous impact on a child, both in terms of how many hours a week he watches TV and of what he sees. When a parent is concerned about the effects of watching television, he should consider a number of things: what TV offers the child in terms of information and knowledge, how many hours a week a youngster his age should watch television, the impact of violence and sex, and the influence of commercials.
What about the family as a whole? Is the TV set a central piece of furniture in your home! Is it flicked on the moment someone enters the empty house? Is it on during the daytime? Is it part of the background noise of your family life? Do you demonstrate by your own viewing that television should be watched selectively?
Since television is clearly here to stay, it is important that parents manage their children’s TV viewing so that it can be a plus rather than a minus in the family situation.
