One reason Holden is a rebel is because he does not go to the football game against Saxon Hall when the whole school annually goes to the game. Here is some evidence to prove it “The game against Saxon Hall was supposed to be a very big deal around Pencey … you were supposed to commit suicide or something if old Pencey didn’t win … I was standing way the hell up on Tomsen hill … practically the whole school except me was there” (Salinger, pg 2) Everybody from Pencey was at the game and cared about winning or losing against Saxon hall. Holden on the other hand is rebelling by not going to the game. Holden is also rebelling by going against the norm of teens in his society by not obsessing over school sports like normal teens. Another reason Holden is a rebel is because he drops out of Pencey because he’s flunking four subjects and won’t put any effort in to turning his grades around at all.
The contempt he shows is clear as he highlights the hypocrisy of the media. Author credibility is built by describing his own experiences in school. It starts out in the first grade, when he was smart enough to be promoted to the second grade but was held back by his mother fearing that her son would get picked on. The end of his formal education comes when he describes dropping out of high school because he could not find a parking spot. Disdain is showed towards government officials for their part in education.
I think it is unfair how Rose had to suffer in lower level classes, and I think it is a relatable story for the present day. For two years Rose was uneducated, the teachers in these classes thought the students couldn’t be taught. This isn’t right to not educate anyone because you assume things. Rose was slapped around, because the teacher thought it would make him a “man”. I think doing that would make someone feel less like a man.
Furthermore, they would not be able to have jobs. Primarily, school should not be extended because there is no A.C. in the classrooms in the summer. Having to A.C. in a hot classroom full of teenagers will cause many problems. One of them being that it will cause the teenagers to have health problems. For example Krenar had summer school and as he was trying to concentrate on the teacher, he fainted from all of the heat circulating his body, and all of the information going through his head.
A high school student needing remedial classes can be blamed on three major factors: the students themselves, the community, and the school system. Students themselves can be blamed for not being ready for college. The most concerning thing for a high school student is their social life. Also, a high school student is usually immature; it’s hard for a fourteen year old child to look ahead to the future. For example, I never planned on going to college, I planned on going to beauty school; however, I finished beauty school then realized I would rather go to college.
Peter highly questions his educational and spiritual values of his school. Peter was accepted to st Patricks , yet however, it is evident that he doesn't want to be accepted. Uniforms are designed to make students fit in and identify proudly with the culture of a school yet there is no indication that Skrzynecki feels he belongs to the school. | With The poets use of the word “carry” in the line “carried the blue, black and gold” represents the burden he feels in having to wear the uniform for eight years, as well as trying and forcing himself to fit in to the schoo0l environment and failing. Through the example; ‘Like a foreign tourist uncertain of my destination every time I got off’ through the simile ‘like a foreign tourist’ the persona compares his everyday routine life to a tourist someone unaware of new surroundings.
However, his parents refused to put him in second grade over fears of the constant bullying that comes with being the smallest child in the class. In protest of their non-acceptance, the next day at assembly, Michael stood in line with the second graders, hoping his desire to continue in higher grade would go unnoticed by the nuns. Thus, Moore’s rebellious phase initiated at a very early stage. On the other hand, Kusz act of rebellion was at a more mature time in her life. Teaching at the collegiate level, with a child in junior high, the thirty year old Kusz acted out her rebellion by piercing her right nostril, and with it attained “a broad and unexpected brand of liberation” (Miller, 329).
When the author’s sister found out that her son was a clan leader and had been excluding other kids at school, she was shocked. I entirely feel as if this situation relates to a few of the economic guideposts we have learned about. First off, incentives matter, in which whatever motivated her son to exclude this other boy, will cause a change in the behavior they have towards each other, causing this game to become more of a real life issue. Therefore, the boys may become enemies at school and this could lead to bigger problems down the road. Secondly,
Also Jack has only just graduated high school: “Part of the reason I made it is that my folks pushed me.” He didn’t like going to high school, maybe because he was bullied by the girls in his school. That is why the relationship seems so fake; he does not know how a real relationship should be. This is also the reason of the title: “Lies.” It is only in his head, because he is lying to us. The fact that he is a projectionist could also describe how he is looking at movies all day and is dreaming away to the romantic movies where everything ends good and they always live happily ever after. He describes his relationship with Katy almost like a romantic Hollywood movie.
The disgraceful thing about this situation is that coordinators of these institutions aren’t even educating these children, so that when they are done serving their time they can do something productive. So now the state has to pay to keep them detained and educate them when they are done serving time. By the time they get out they aren’t going to go back to school because they’ll most likely be behind a grade level or two. They don’t want to be ostracized in a class room full of 11 year old children and if they’re 14. Now the only choice they have is to be picked on or go back to doing the same thing that landed them in jail because they don’t even have an elementary or high school
