I see this as a way to encourage open dialogue between students and administration. Circulation does convey a purpose to students as well as staff. I believe the principal must create that climate for learning with openness and development of trust. Through this reflective process I realize that the principal did do the majority of the paper work after the students had departed from school. This commitment models the expectations for the staff and proves that I, as a principal, must strive to create a school culture that has a positive influence on life and learning in my school.
Gatto says that school diminishes creativity; if anything kids discover their hidden creativeness in class while at school. He also says that kids are not able to advance in higher learning. When clearly, kids are able to follow the teacher and be able to get A's while the subjects get more extreme. Gatto says, "teachers tend to blame the kids, as you might expect"(pg. 683) from personal experiences I can say that I have had great relationships with my teachers throughout elementary school and especially High school.
Building a bank of “what if” scenarios is a valuable tool in building a solid teaching philosophy. * Discussing teaching cases allows teachers to reflect and think critically about a certain problem without actually having to go through the experience. Helping teachers prepare for possible situations that may arise in the classroom, is a huge benefit to teachers. Knowing ahead of time how to respond to a certain situation helps build confidence and reduces anxiety in the decision making process. Part 2 The Case of Jesus Gonzalez a) Key Factors This case is about a first grade student named Jesus Gonzalez, his family, and teacher, Mrs. Kiffen.
The author also uses quotes from trusted officials in education to increase his ethics. The major appeal Mathews uses in his argument is emotional appeal, or pathos, with his choice of loaded words to portray recess in a negative light and stories from educators who also believe recess is not necessary in school days. Mathews argue his viewpoint on recess successfully through the use of pathos because it lets the reader see the effects of recess through the eyes of a teacher. Author Jay Mathews, is an educational columnist for The Washington Post. Jay Mathews has been an educational columnist and blogger for more than 40 years for The Washington Post.
Payne stated that students should learn the “hidden rules” of the middle class from their educators so that they have another set of rules to use if they choose to do so. Impoverished students, compared to students of middle or upper class, often have a lack of proper funding, thus, a lack of appropriate resources to use in their education. Due to this, they are often unprepared for school, not having the money to purchase books and other educational tools. Both authors realize this, but argue that the responsibility lies on different shoulders. Payne states that impoverished students face inequality at school, insinuating that the school should be responsible for helping to provide for these students so that they can have a better education.
The janitor, who is the narrator of the story, observes all the obstacles that the school and students have faced over time.

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.
In addition to what Lang Wood believes, Stephens claims, students who are taking the test suffer from stress in result of worrying about passing it. Stephens points out “negative results more often than not yield low-self-esteem, higher incidents of seclusion and lower academic progress. Children who pass the test are just happy to be done with it and really do not gain sense of achievement” (par.4). It is clear that the pressure and anxiety
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.
