Unfortunately as I looked over it more excessively I had gotten a little over whelmed by everything that I had seen that is negative in this world, not only what is negative outside my control but what is inside my control as well. As I reviewed the lecture that Mrs. Keel had gone over with the class, I understand more clearly that whatever it may be, good or bad, you have to look at it in a positive outlook and what you can gain from it. This is my first quarter in school and I initially thought that I was pretty well prepared for everything that was going to come my way. As I am writing this essay I realize that it is going to be a little more difficult

But in today’s society, American high schools have developed into a flawed system that has adverse effects on its students. There are flaws in the inadequate system such as heavy testing and the teaching of irrelevant information. In order to mend these issues the education system needs to be reshaped and refocused to create a more constructive system. Throughout my personal career in high school, as a current eleventh grader in the public school system, I’ve found the testing
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).
