(Schneider 3) Furthermore, censorship of Huckleberry Finn could depend on many other factors: fear of uneducated or insensitive teachers leading student discussions, school administrators who wish to avoid controversy and discomfort with acknowledging our country's painful history. “It’s true that people might now be offended by the portrayal of Jim, or the use of “nigger”, but times have changed and we don’t portray them that way anymore.

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).

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.

You are going to take those classes that require memorizing long formulas and theories, and that will take more of your time.

When studying in a foreign country, language, homesickness, and culture shock are major factors with which international students deal. Going to another country with intent of studying is not an easy decision since it requires responsibility and interest. For students from collectivist cultures, leaving their family to earn their degree also requires a certain level of self-denial. Usually, students take the opportunity to go to study in different country because they are looking for a better chance in their life. When they leave their home country, they quickly start to have hard time.
This essay will critically respond to her arguments. Two of the arguments that Wanda Williams gives are that people are writing less meaningfully and academically; and young peoples' verbal, social skills and ability to read and absorb a long, complicated text are harmed.
