The Puritan community in The Crucible was vulnerable in many ways and susceptible to irrational and panicky accusations of the Salem Witch Hunts because of their strict and constricting ways. The children in the community are treated very poorly and less than everyone else in the town. As the Salem Witch Hunts were essentially started by the children the fact that they were treated as lesser beings contributed to the communities demise. “He (Reverend Parris) regarded them as young adults, an until this strange crisis he, like the rest of Salem, never conceived that the children were anything but thankful for being permitted to walk straight, eyes slightly lowered, arms at their sides, and mouths shut until bidden to speak,” (Miller 3). Miller foreshadows the Witch Hunts to come.
As I watched the method in which Elliot taught the children the lesson of discrimination over a few days period, I was filled with so many different emotions. Seeing the shame, lack of confidence and hurt they were experiencing while being discriminated against changed my reaction from angry to feeling thankful.

Kids these days have no idea how hard life was back then, even the African American student haven’t a clue to how harsh life was, not just in Central High School but their lives in general were always being tortured.
The classroom of today has been transformed into a variable war zone. Teachers are forced to walk on eggshells at all times or risk being fired because of an enraged parent or possibly a student that felt mistreated because an author used the word “nigger.” Some students get the idea that they are being persecuted because of the material they are being taught. To some, it seems that people seem to look for an excuse to be offended and take action against whoever they feel needs to be punished for reading a book. Teachers are now doing their jobs with both hands tied and children are at a disadvantage because of it. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is written by a master of satire, Mark Twain, who uses his characters to reflect the world’s happenings around him.
Many teachers do not like “catching plagiarists and bringing them to academic justice.” As she states, it is not hard to just cite the author that originally had the information you are using (Bojar). Plagiarism is becoming a big problem in the school system. Many students do not understand what needs to be cited and what does not. The school system should teach students the proper way to cite, and they should teach them that copy and pasting is not writing a paper. According Bojar to students at the community college have a hard time juggling classes along with his or her family and a job.
Nothing.” The youth in the film are coming primarily from broken homes, with substance abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. These youth see violence and dysfunction every single day of their lives. Society as a whole is quick to look the other way and immediately label these youth as “bad” rather than exploring the route of the problem. This social problem would go back to the early times in history when the Aboriginal people were exploited, driven off their lands, forced onto reserves and thrown into residential schools, where they learned nothing but abuse and punishment. The Aboriginal people lost their culture, their language, their sense of which they are, and their parenting skills.

I started to become the center of all the girl drama that went around. And it seemed like I was in the counselor’s office regularly to get an update to see how I was doing. My lack of self confidence and the trouble in high school reflected my attitude towards my education. I was never confident when it came to projects, assignments, or class work. It felt like my peers were better than me because it seemed like they put a lot of thought and input into their school works while I felt like I turned in something worthless.
Teachers utilize diverse procedures to control unacceptable behaviors in the classroom Lewis, Romi, Qui and Katz (2005). At the same time, however teachers endeavor to make the classroom contribute to a favorable learning environment for the students. For example using corporal punishment like caning, sending the child out of class for misbehaving, or to the disciplinarian office, or calling their parents is actually harming them as they are not able benefit from it. Classroom management has mostly been seen by teachers as something that is not simple to compromise in education. Sanford and Evertson (1981) have similarly argued that classroom management is a major difficulty for “teachers and administrators in junior high schools” (p. 34).
