Surprisingly, Hulchanski’s finding in “Three cities within Toronto” happened to agree to another document “Ferguson action: Our Vision for a New America” (2014, p.1). Black communities claimed that institutional discrimination is recognized and addressed. They want to achieve a true freedom where everyone has an equal opportunity to access a fair employment market, decent housing and affordable education which are currently affected by institutional racism to different extent. Shooting of Brown is just one of many incidents that provoke people to fight against institutional racism. Old habits die hard.
Judy Jones was a teacher, then an administrator, and now, she is a principal at Greenleaf Elementary in Texas. While principal, Judy’s superintendent gave her one year to turn her failing school into an academically successful school. Judy used her previous skills as a teacher, and on the first day of school; she re-read The First Days of School, but this time, she read it from a principal’s perspective. Judy told her students and teachers to work and learn positively; and they should all have high expectations for others and themselves. She strongly believed in structure and procedure.
During those six weeks I worked on material that helped me get ready for the next grade. For example last summer I took am math class called “Algebra 2, which happens to be a class I knew I would struggle with since math isn’t a subject I’m good at, with the help from the ConnCAP staff they helped me better understand what I was learning by offering me extra help after class and worked with me one on one”. So when school started in the fall I was always ahead of my classmates. I did multiple power points and projects, I learned how to speak in front large crowds professionally and know what to do and what not to do, which would help me in college and in my career. At the end of the six weeks I was required to participate and complete an “End of the program
Back then it didn’t matter whether you went to school or not because most parents needed their kids’ help with extra work on the field, but now it matters. An education is something that is guaranteed to all American citizens and if you don’t go to school, someone will come to your house to find out why you haven’t been attending. In the 1940’s you were required to learn how to read, write, know some math, and geography. In 2013 you have to learn all these different things that can somewhat prepare you for any career. We have to learn about finance, economics, algebra, biology, and more.
I totally agree. High school teachers tend to go easy on their students, try to pass them but not help them with their future. I think that is one of the reasons for such a high dropout rate in college. And most of my friends end up in preparation courses for calculus and composition. More and more computer based lessons have been given to high school students.
Anyone who has raised a child can understand the many obstacles and challenges of parenthood. Every parent wants to see their child happy and succeed in life, but in order to accomplish that, many parents believe they must grant their child’s every want and need. Ruben Navaratte Jr.’s article from the San Diego Tribune, “The deprived child who has it all” is shared to be aimed towards the parents of the new millennium. Navarette bring up the issue about parents of the new millennium who make the mistake of ironically providing too much for their children. In the opening paragraph of the article, Navarette shares his own experience of growing up as a child in the 1940’s.
I hated to do this so as I said before, this teaches that lesson of what’s right and wrong, therefor learning civility. As I got grew up I learned something every year. In first grade I learned that when older people help younger kids out for a whole school year you can really learn a lot. We had 8th grade buddies that were there every morning waiting for us in our classroom to talk to us before the school day started. Our teachers were very old and wise so they knew that this wouldn’t just be a learning experience for the 8th graders but also the 1st.
His teachers are responsible for giving him the tools he needed to succeed. The No Child Left Behind Act was made for this reason, so schools can hire adequate teachers to challege students and make them better in school. I am content that the No Child Left Behind Act was passed because all my teachers help me a lot and make sure they are doing their best so I can be ready for college. If the No Child Left Behind Act was not passed, then there would be more schools like Ballou. Schools where kids do not try and are not guaranteed to make it through
The Political Science program even helped me succeed in my schools AP course because it prepared me for future topics that I would eventually learn and most importantly the AP exam. Throughout the year I kept completing all the intricate assignments and by doing so I feel that challenging myself has benefited me for the future that awaits me. Before AP History I felt unaccomplished and that school was too easy. I used to complete my assignments and feel spiritless. The course made me realize that college wouldn't be cinch.
Easy Doesn’t Seem So Easy They said it was going to be easy, that I was going to enjoy Advance Placement Psychology. I guess it doesn’t always work like that for everyone. It was the last quarter of my junior year in high school, registration week. You could feel the stress linger upon every junior as they frantically searched for classes they would take their senior year. Each junior trying to make the perfect schedule for a perfect year, all deciding whether a cruise class or an advance placement was right for them.
