But can any aspects of Gradgrind’s methods be incorporated into today’s educational system? Firstly, the girl in question, Celia Jupe, makes the mistake of referring to herself as Sissy, a nickname her father has given her. Gradgrind immediately corrects her on the proper way in which she should refer to herself and that such nicknames have no place in his classroom. In today’s society, this behavior would be so foreign to the western educational system, especially in dealing with children.

Director and writer Davis Guggenheim, best known for his film An Inconvenient Truth, highlights the issues holding American school children back; from government’s system that controls the teaching system which is, to bad teachers who can’t be fired also known as Tenure.

In his article, “Where Paternalism Makes the Grade”, George F. Will states that there is an achievement gap that separates the whites from minorities in the success of education and it needs to be closed. As his conclusion, he wants to bring in a new type of paternalism in schools. According to Will, paternalism is defined as “the restriction of freedom for the good of the person restricted.” In his article, he persuades his readers that paternalism is the answer to the lack of education by presenting them with anecdotal evidence of a determined little boy wanting to attend school, and some statistics on teacher’s “unsatisfactory” ratings. He also includes the perspective of Ben Chavis, AIPC’s dictator, to give a personal point of view. Will’s persuasion of the essay overall is unconvincing due to the lack of information stated about the opposing view so therefore his ridicule is unfair.
Claire Howells Major’s “Exam Scams” analyzes and is composed of urban legends. There are stories of unprepared students dealing with the professors, professors making inappropriate jokes at the students, and even a story of extremes a student went through because of the stressful work. For example, “This legend depicts a classroom in which the professor shows great disregard and disrespect for the students by disengaging to do for-profit work and leaving an impersonal medium to assume his role.” (Howell Major 241) Colleges know how to choose their professors and it will be very unlikely to find such a careless professor. Howell explains why each urban legend is beneficial to students but how can stories of such extremes help a first year college student? The answer is it doesn’t.

These behaviors are termed “workplace deviance behaviors.” In workplace deviance, employees consciously violate the rules of the organization, which, in turn, has the potential to negatively affect the organization itself, its members, or both. Workplace deviance, depending on the type of the behavior, is categorized into two dimensions: organizational deviance and deviance between individuals. Professionals working in successful schools carry out instructional activities; student, colleague, and parental relationships depend on certain norms. Teachers’ deviant behaviors, by breaking school rules or interpersonal relationships, may harm the school and the students. Therefore, it is important to indentify and prevent such deviant behaviors.
