First Generation Students On February 2nd, 2009, I attended a seminar given by Stephen Jenkins, PhD, LP about “ Finging Success for First generation Students.” The name is almost self explanatory. First generation students are students whose parents did not attend college, parents who have a high school diploma or less. Although I am not a first generation student, it was really interesting learning all about the pro’s and con’s of being a first generation student. Approximately 30% of students in public 4 year colleges, like SCSU, are first generation students. Seventy five percent of these students are white female.

In the article, she shows that her hair colorist makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year; who does not have a college degree.

In order for students to reach their full potential they must have a supporting cast behind them willing to take the time to help them and show the encouragement they need.

Being able to see what has been being talked about in the class all week, makes learning easier for a visual learner. While attending school, you go to take in as much knowledge as possible.

Wrong! I will tell you why are education system is flawed, why flunking is not a punishment and other options that we could introduce to young struggling students. The American education system is known as one of the best in the world, but just like many great things, flaws are eminent. Year in and year out, students get passed through school prematurely. Many of these kids think they’re on the right track because they pass classes and are moved along with the rest of the class.
The Affect of Culture On Learning Styles and Behavior Nicole Souza Marie’s parents just did not understand. It was Marie’s first time in public school and after years of tutors and home schooling, Marie was smart and bright and going to High school. What Mr. and Mrs Samuels did not understand was why their daughter was struggling in English. She was perfectly prepared for High School.
