School systems today are so indulgent in their rules, guidelines and consequences; thus causing cheating, copying or forgeries to be regularly used. Students take advantage of copying someone else's work whenever they are given the chance, because they abhor doing their own work. Other times, students will have someone else do their work and turn it in as their own, not realizing the aftermath this can create. This creates a lack of creativity, no sense of responsibility and the students will never acquire new knowledge. This type of behavior should be discussed academically by the school administration.
One of Phaedrus’s students explains “Of course you can’t eliminate the degree and grading system. After all that’s what we’re here for.” By this quote the student is making an accusation that everyone who attends college is only attending for the grade and not the knowledge of any subject itself. Although I agree with this female student up to a certain point, I cannot accept her overriding assumption that every
Corruption in Education Many students come to college to experience a new way of life and to form a new understanding of the world. They rely on their professors to provide them with the information necessary to achieve their goals. A classroom is most beneficial to a student when there is no ignorance or closed-mindedness. If the professor teaches both sides of issues and allows the class to debate topics without manipulating the students to believe what the professor believes, it gives the students all the tools they need to succeed in that specific class and in the future. In Alison Schneider’s essay, “Frumpy or Chic?
A Perception of Case Study of “Amanda Jackson” Child, Family & Society (SOC312) Instructor: Sharon Methvin September 14, 2010 Amanda Jackson is new to the teaching field and new to her school which is very “popular for visitors to the district” to visit and maintains their “high academic standards” within the school district. Amanda finds the wit of the principal makes her uneasy because she is unsure whether the principal is serious or joking. She finds herself hiding from the principal like a schoolgirl and wishing she wasn’t around when she needs to visit the main office. Amanda is concerned because the principal is never spoken of in jest or in a negative light. The teachers speak only of her positive contributions to the school and her ability to make sure teachers and students have what they need from the district office “Bartlett Street”.
The Nuer have found difficulty academically, in the work force, and in health care among other issues. Coming to America, the Nuer are already familiar with the importance of education. Men, women, and children alike, want to succeed academically because they know it will give them better opportunities for well paying jobs and if they ever go back to Sudan, there diploma or degree will be well respected and earn them prestige. Unfortunately, it is not as easy for the Nuer to be placed in school as it is for the typical American. The Nuer are inexperienced in the English language with most women and children never having formal English training and only some of the men having some experience
One of the classes I took during my undergraduate studies was Contemporary Moral Issues. I had actually taken this class twice because I was unsatisfied with the grade I received the first time. Nonetheless, I had noticed a significant difference in how each teacher executed her class. In the first class, the professor took control of everything, which is common for a teacher, but she dictated every move the class made. There was no variety in the lessons, and even when the students were clearly lost, she continued anyway.
Teachers can promote dialect diversity by having students list different names for an item used by many cultures. For example, students from other countries or cities can tell the class if there is a difference between ‘soda and pop’ or ‘bag or sack’. According to the article, this allows students to think comprehensively and it also promotes critical thinking and the opportunity to compare culture differences. A student’s cultural and language background ultimately influences how successful they are. When students enter school without any education, it is difficult for
Most people feel that they have worked hard for their college career and feel that they have no where to turn. According to the article, “Cheating on multiple choice exams by Leda Nath and Michael Lovaglia,” Cheating may detract from learning. In other words, if one is caught cheating it may deter others from trying to do their best on their tests, especially if that person is not reprimanded in a way that the person thinks that they should. According to their research, out of 400 students in one class about 12 are caught cheating per semester. Teaching schedules do not always permit them to address these cases properly and sometimes not at all.
From my experience in high school, students would disrupt the class, disrespect the teacher and do not bother to participate in group assignments. Children have been attending school for the better part of their lives and seem to get a little too comfortable in classroom situations. Acting out and disrupting the class is just another way to avoid work and, in their eyes, have fun in class. These students seem unaware that their entertainment is at other students’, who want to learn, expense. The disruption is a huge distraction for those who want to get an education and a good grade in the class.
High school teachers teach the same fundamentals as college professors do like math, English, history, and etc. but the college level is a whole different ball game. High school teachers do not have the same experience with teaching as college professors do, they tend to baby their students and be a lot more lenient and pass them if they just show up to their classes every day. Making this change will be the greatest
