The environment that Miss Sun and her students walk into everyday has turned into a prison instead of a learning place. These children are seen as the rejects of society who are physically imprisoned by metal detectors and mentally imprisoned by their personal surroundings. The educational system fails children like them. Although Malcolm X High isn’t a real school, the problems that they face are present in many public schools. Due to all of these reasons the students in the play feel as though they are prisoners; Jerome: We treated like convicts Ms Sun: How do you mean?
Alexander Robbins, the author of The Overachievers, shows the readers what life is like as an overachiever in high school through great research and being able to follow the lives of high school students. Robbins wants readers to know how hard it is to be a student in high school and the struggles that students go through. The authors point was to argue that the factors of life in high school such as parents, teachers, AP classes, and colleges are affecting students’ physical and emotional health in a harmful way rather than helping to develop students’ education and life. Robbins stresses her argument to prove her point by giving the readers a look into some of the lives of high school overachievers: AP Frank, Julie, and Audrey. From the moment a student begins school, there will be a parent or form of parent, to watch over and make sure to receive a good education.
Kids around the U.S. in schools are starting to write threats around the school as a joke. The sad part is when somebody brings up a school shooting and it is not seen as a big deal because we are now used to these types of outbursts happening more than they should. If we look back at 1998 when the Columbine shooting happened people were in shock because it was the worst that has ever happened before. It has happened so much from then to now that nobody is surprised when we hear about one. People are now expecting these to happen and that is the problem.
He poses the problem of being generation vexed because of the way you are being raised. His opinion, pointers, and facts are essential to his column. He say that he is here to let people know that are rejected from packs are not alone. He feels that generation vexed is due low self esteem, few positive role models, separation of parents, and not spending enough time with face - to - face interactions. An example is given where he is an unattractive 14- year old boy begging at an all male prep school.
This can mainly be seen between a student and a teacher, another adult, or just a simple student with student. The same attitude that is being used toward parents is used against school officials. Schools should enforce more disciplinary action against these rude teens so as to make them pay for their lack of respect. As teenagers go about their daily lives, they observe others being rude to their friends and their parents, so they in turn do the same. The amount of peer pressure is increasing; therefore, it results in conforming to their peers’ expectations.
The shocking video of a bunch of students bullying a singled-out student in the prestigious Modern School, Vasant Vihar has invoked bitter criticism from all sections of the society. Sadly, this is not one off incident as ‘Bullying behaviour’ is a common occurrence in most schools and is now a worldwide epidemic cutting across economic, social and racial lines. As a parent I strongly feel that introspection ought to precede criticism. Condemnation alone can’t create kinder communities or teach children how to get along. It will take a much deeper rethinking of what societies need to do for their children.
Identify, isolate, Intimidate, Remove The school district has implemented no tolerance policies that simply do not investigate, determine cause, resolve and reinforce positive behaviors. Bullying by some students is rampant and the simple “no tolerance” policy enforces these behaviors by bullies. Bullying is taking place in front of teachers and administrators who pretend not see and say nothing. The student that is bullied is then victimized again by the school by being expelled or punished if situation comes to the attention of the school when he responds. The behavior by bullies then is virtually encouraged as students become afraid or feel that the administration will not react appropriately should they inform them of a bulling situation.
Salinger shows how Holden’s childhood have shaped his attitude towards others. Through Holden’s characteristics, actions and comments Salinger shows that events in our life can affect the adults we become. Holden tends to be a pessimist teenager that always sees the bad in people, especially in adults. He has the habit to use the word “phony” to describe people, and it seems like he has difficulties having a good social life, but he doesn’t really like to be alone. He has been kicked out of school several times; it seems like he does not care about it; however, he has a decent grade in English class.
Society is failing students by placing extremely low expectations on students and their achievement in academics as well as in life. Students are failing themselves. They are failing themselves by allowing parents, teachers, school systems, society dictate whether or not they will pay attention in class and receive an ideal education. Many people in society will attempt to place the blame of the problems in education on a specific group of people. No specific group of people can be blamed for the problems in education.
Assessment 3 Practising successful inclusion Gerald Pg, 364 Gerald has been identified as having Asperger’s Syndrome. Attwood (2007) states, students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have difficulty with theory of the mind which is a core cognitive deficit. Gerald lacks social skills and struggles to develop cooperative social interactions which contributes to poor peer relationships. This behaviour leaves Gerald excluded from friendships and social situations. This makes school unenjoyable for the student which can lead to outbursts of anger and fights with other students.
