With this, it would be more difficult for the bullies to find a target. If there were to be casual clothes all throughout schools, it would be much easier to identify and divide the people who have wealth and the people with low costs. According to Debatepedia, “children invariably tease those who do not have trendy clothes. Those who can’t afford name brand clothes are often sensitive about their clothing”. This shows that children would most likely taunt the students who do not have the appropriate ‘fashionable’ clothing, and those who do not have enough money to purchase the brand name clothes, would feel barred from the sociable assembly.
2. The major issue with dirty dancing/grinding in middle schools and high schools is that parents, administrators, and other affiliates are not approving of the sexually interactive movements between the kids. This “dirty dancing” is defined as a style of intimate, close dancing between two partners. This issue has grown to a much larger definition due to the new age of teens who are evolving into what parents consider to be crude and unethical in many things that they do, one being “dirty dancing”. The ethical and moral issues are broad in scope due to the partial acceptance of this new culture of kids.
The use of technology is affecting students especially in high school and college. According to Turkle, today’s college students have little experience with the right to privacy as they leave trails of everything they have done online, unlike previous generations who have worked hard to protect their privacy. In her article, Turkle also describes the use of online avatars as both a positive and negative image in children’s lives. Some children invest far too much time developing their online personality while role-playing offers a safe place in a world full of crime, terrorism, and drugs. As a consequence this retards their social growth
It’s Me, Margaret because it’s one of those books that everybody except me had read – it’s a classic! But here’s my thoughts on reading it as a 14-year-old girl who got the opportunity to read it as an actual pre-teen.. Published in 1970, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret seems to be Judy Blume’s most famous novel Margaret Simon likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain and things that are pink. At 11-years-old, she’s just moved from busy NYC to the quiet suburbs – Farbrook, New Jersey – where she’s faced with a whole bunch of weird new firsts.
Most pupils are labelled by teachers when they come into a classroom for the first time, the majority of the time the labels given to the pupils are unintentional and based on racist stereotypes and prejudice. Wright (1986) went to 4 inner-city primary schools and gathered research based on classroom observations which he found that teachers perceived and treated ethnic minority students differently to white students. Asian children, especially young Asian pupils were often ignored and received less attention than other students. Asian students were often excluded from classroom discussions and rarely got asked questions by the teacher. Teachers assumed that the Asian students lacked language skills which allowed them to join in class activities; teachers thought they were insufficient for full participation in classroom tasks.
Lastly, constant fights, suspensions, or lack of the ability to cooperate in school with other students, makes it hard for bullies to apply for other schools due to their behavioral issues. As a result, not having strict disciplinary actions instilled in schools makes it hard for bullies to excel in their academic life. Clearly, not having strict disciplinary actions instilled in schools lets bullying divert its bullies and victims from excelling in school life, and further future advances. Nevertheless, many believe bullying only occurs in school, and it would be unnecessary to take such drastic disciplinary actions; others, who are wise enough, know bullying could give both the bully and victim future disadvantages. For one thing, many adolescents who have
Although, what students wear often becomes the soul identity and determine what groups they will or will not be accepted to. As a result many teens and children become antisocial, branded, the bud of everyone jokes. This can lead to many symptoms like depression, inability to concentrate on schoolwork, or the feeling of inferiority. The implementing of school uniform puts everybody as a whole on an equal level because no attire is more stylish or extravagant than another. School Uniforms would save time for both the parents and student who would have to wear it.
I remember when I was in middle school; I didn’t wear the fanciest clothes or was with the current fashion trend and was often left out when my friends were talking about clothes. I felt like I did not belong, but I did not want to buy expensive clothing just to feel included by my friends. Even though students' individuality is important to express one's self, uniforms should be adopted in some public schools because they lower disciplinary referrals and help students focus on learning. Many students of public schools believe that school uniforms should not be introduced, because it is restraining people's freedom of expression and does not create diversity. One example of how uniforms restrict learners is that "without the outlet of expression in their clothes, students may turn to inappropriate hair styles, jewelry, or makeup".
When you introduce a new language to a highschooler or adult, the material become increasingly more difficult. If someone is not 100% sure of the Spanish language, they tend to become timid and not speak the language at all, thus not reaping the benefits of knowing Spanish. By teaching kids at a younger age we can prevent this shyness, and Spanish will become like a second language (not just useless information). One of the reasons foreign languages are taught in high schools is that they can help you out in the “real world”, where not everybody speaks English. Although starting to learn Samish in high school can be somewhat beneficial, most students won’t continue to speak the language throughout college, or the rest of their adult life.
Some academics come naturally to students and if they are outnumbered by those that don’t comprehend the lesson, then they may receive a poor grade. In the same manner if a student is outnumbered by intellectual student then they would receive a grade they did not earn. I have seen a few children in the classroom who can read really well and it would not be fair to those few students if they received a low grade because the majority of the class does not know how to read well yet. Another downside to group grading is that sometimes you find that some people work harder than others. In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack.
