Paraphrase example 1 


Roger Sipher concludes

his essay by insisting

that schools have failed

to fulfill their primary

duty(1+2+4) of education because

they try to fill

multiple social functions.(3)


Schools should( duty) be for education.(goal) At present, they are only tangentially so.( not really meeting the goal)

 They have attempted to serve an

all-encompassing social function, trying to be all things to all people. (other goals /other functions)

In the process they have failed miserably

at what they were originally formed to accomplish. (not really meeting the goal)

Paraphrase example 2


Of the more than 1000 bicycling deaths each year, three-fourths are caused by head injuries. Half of those killed are school-age children. One study concluded that wearing a bike helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by 85 percent. In an accident, a bike helmet absorbs the shock and cushions the head. From "Bike Helmets: Unused Lifesavers," Consumer Reports (May 1990): 348


....................

85 percent of a 1000 lethal  injuries, head injuries and deaths of school children could have been avoided by wearing bike helmets.  A study has proved that bike helmets take in most of  the  trauma.
