The group does have purpose as they plan to create an after-school program which will improve school performance both by the students and the teachers. The group is structured as the Woodson Foundation and the school system will develop a new agency that will draw on resources from both organizations as well as a representative from the NCPIE. This is where the group comes up short from the storming stage as there is no leadership yet. They are still establishing ground rules such as: Will the new jobs be unionized? And Will the Woodson Foundation be able to use hard data?
On one side, people can improve their English Language, get a diploma, change professions, or improve careers. On the other hand, discipline, especially, in the public schools of the U.S. is a problem, and should be improved because poor discipline cannot prepare students to continue their education. Body Discipline in the public schools must take priority in the U.S. First of all, the students need to be prepared to their future lives, and good discipline in the public schools can help them to do it more easily. For example, if students will take responsibility to do their homework. Come to class on time, or follow the teachers’ instructions they are prepared to continue their education in college.

The Civil Right Movement brought about legislation in preventing prejudice towards people with disabilities allowing them the right to an education. Legislation made sure parents are well-informed of their rights concerning their child’s education and special instructions designed to meet their needs. The social implications of litigation on the lives of students with disabilities is giving students equality in education where teachers develop modification and accommodations to meet student’s academic and social goals. I would say thinking has changed dramatically regarding the understanding of students with disabilities. For, many people did not understand or had the true knowledge of disabilities and how to help students with disabilities.
Public school is better than home schooling because public school mentally prepares students for the real world; giving students knowledge on how to deal with bullying and peer pressure, and also allowing them to interact with different students and teachers. "Yes, read that part again-- government schools were never about truly educating your child; they were and are about creating happy workers and taxpayers, people afraid to challenge the status quo and unable to read and think for themselves. " (Vaughan 647). Although some parents have jobs and are not able to home school their children, public school could be their option. Public school education prepares students for the real world by displaying to them how school is a job by giving them the imagery of having an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. job that comes with hard work and dedication.
Purpose School vouchers are a hot topic in Green Bay. Governor Scott Walker wants to pass school vouchers in 2013-14 school year. There are many pros and cons to having vouchers in a school district.

The professional development meetings inform the teachers of how to incorporate rigorous learning into their lessons and also explains what the district expects to see from the staff. To meet the goals of our action plan, the teachers need to align their lessons with the core curriculum. Professional development helps them stay on task with these strategies. Principals also use out-of-district professional development classes to refine any weaknesses of the teachers in our school building. For example, if a teacher has a hard time with classroom management, our principal will suggest a professional development to address classroom management skills for that particular teacher.
Aim for a 4:1 ratio of positive comments to negative corrections for all the students. A – Arrange the environment for success.

Seek collaboration with experienced teachers and specialists before difficult problems start to become entrenched.
The main purpose of Highschool is to educate people, and to teach them the skills they will need to be successful in their careers and in everyday life. Grades are used to show how well, or how weak a student is doing in a particular subject. However, do grades help or hurt the student? Now days, some professors do not give students exams during the semester. Basically, students get graded on how well they do on the final exam.
I believe that part on being culturally aware in the classroom teacher must build knowledge of what the student bring into the classroom. This concerns areas of the students’ life, students’ family, students’ community, and the students’ cultural background. In this we dive into a deeper level of commitment with our students giving them the message that we as teacher are not here just to be another authority figure, but we are here to be an understanding mentor that is aiding in the process of their growth. Doing so would call teachers to challenge their student on an individual level. With this challenge on the individual level, teachers should begin to learn the background of their students, with this new gained knowledge; know how to approach challenging each student in a different way that best suites the student.
