Mike Rose's "I Just Wanna Be Average" Mike Rose's "I Just Wanna Be Average” essay sheds light on troubled youth within the public school system. It makes you long for the days of American pride and service. Students placed in "tracks” to utilize overcrowded and faulty test systems. Identity lost due to poor instruction and lack of motivation. The influx of shattered images brought forth by the "Report of the French Commission on American Education, 1879” reminds us of a time long ago when education was for every child, not select few.
Responsibilities are one of the other main parts of Barak’s speech. To illustrate, my responsibility to myself is to explore all educational possibilities to make myself better and my country better. With this responsibility I can make this country a better place to live by completing my goals and completing my education. I will commit to a goal and I will keep to that goal, to be responsible in school, and be more responsible to my teammates. Finally, responsibilities have a huge impact on everything I do in my daily
They like to inform the parents of things going on at the center, and in the government that concern the center. Having relationships with the families is important and they have very close ties with them. The philosophy the center runs by is the idea that a child’s education is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects of his or her life. With this in mind, teachers are very influential characters. Therefore it is essential that teachers develop their educational philosophy and their educational goals before making the big step from being a student to being a teacher.
An obvious strength would be that education greatly helps society to come together and teaches the important life skills that are needed in order ro build up society. There were also a number of criticisms to Durkheim's theory. Hargreave's greatly criticised Durkheim by saying that there was too much stress on the developing individual rather than on the duties and responsibilities of the individual. The study also does not look at why individuals do not achieve within education A second functionalist perspective is Parson's, 1961. Parson's stated that education acts as a bridge between family and wider society.
The reason I believe that it still exists is because only the people who stay focused on what they want to achieve and dedicate themselves to working hard actually achieve their goals. The people who don’t think that the American Dream exists are the people who don’t work hard for what they want and just expect things to come to them or be handed to them. I am living proof that the dream is still alive today. My parents come from the middle to lower class and have gone to school to educate themselves. They have both worked hard to be able to give me and my sister a better life.
Students must be taught within themselves and not by society. Education will always be a part of society and society will always be a part of education which is why Baldwin states the importance of the responsibility for teachers to change society if they consider themselves as an educated person. To me it is very critical for all of the educators, and especially “those who deal with the minds and hearts of young people” (P.123, L.6-7) to take the greatest care in nourishing out minds and our actions based on the global societal truths. In Baldwin’s speech, he also talks about the treatment that he experienced as a boy living in what he described as “life in the ghetto” (P.125, L.7) and the mistreatment received by whites. The whites were blinded by their own
It was said that one ‘solution’ to the ‘problem’ of inequity was to ‘educate the parents’ (Thomson, P 2002, p. 3) and encourage them to ‘supervise’ their children whilst doing homework. This suggests that with the parent’s encouragement and reinforcement towards the child, they are more likely to want to succeed and feel they have the right to succeed, instead of there being a boundary between the advantaged and disadvantaged children. The parents of both Vicki and Thanh want the best for their children, to graduate and achieve a ‘university’ (Thomson, P 2002, p.2) degree. However Vicki is more likely to succeed because of her parent’s educational background and will be able to provide the support that she needs going through school, whereas Thanh will have to find other sources for educational help because his parents do not have the knowledge that he
There are many ways I could serve other with my education, by doing my work for this country, by serving the ones that are less fortunate than I, and to teach the next generation of not just students, but also people that motivation and inspiration are the keys to success and that they should never give up. First, I'd try to do my work in this world by what I am taught in my classroom and applying it to the real world. I would use the morals that my teachers use in the classroom in a world that desperately needs my intelligence, and my sense of service. There is no justice in this world and I would use my education to try and apply it to where it needs to be like: in the world, in the courts, in the prisons, in the fields, in the study and in the classroom, at home and abroad. A second way I'd use my education to serve others is by serving the people that are less fortunate than I am.
I would help the child to see that just because their parents and grandparents are education to a certain extent, doesn’t mean that’s how it has to be for them. I would encourage them to set their own goals and to work toward creating their own identity. Another way that I would help these students overcome generational poverty is to help them set goals, both short term, and long term. I would help them set some serious goals for their life and for their education in hopes that those goals will stay in their mind and push them to work as hard as they can to be successful and overcome the life that generations before them have laid out for
