This can end up causing them to pick on and mistreat the less popular people of their school. Jocks are looked upon as heroes to some, and enemies to other. Once again, it just depends on what category one happens to be in while in high school. Preps are very similar to jocks, only without all the sweat. In most cases, preps are the students of the school who only wear high dollar clothing, fix their hair just perfect every day, and prance around thinking they are better then the rest of the student body.
This article basically says that high school sports are not killing the academics but the students/athletics are killing it themselves. It explains how school sponsored sport programs should be seriously be thought about being cut off. Some people believe that sports are far more firmly fixed in American high school than in other countries but the test scores finds no support. Ripley bring up that athletic coaches are typically lousy classroom teachers. However, athletic coaches gain additional opportunity for communication by helping the student succeed.
What he is trying to say is Students do poorly in high school because they are okay with average and colleges need to have an entrance exam and the students will hopefully do better in college. Toby states “colleges like Harvard and Yale etc. have 10 or more applicants for every place in the freshman class.” The author isn’t saying all students are less efficient jus some. I believe if they make all the colleges have an entrance exam it will just make things harder for students. I agree with Toby to a certain extent but he cannot place full blame on all schools.

In document 7, Martin Luther condemns the behavior of the peasants calling them mad dogs .Martin Luther’s response is unpredictable because the peasants used his ideas for inspiration and Luther turns against them .He wanted no part in their revolt. Luther is known for his posting of 95 theses on the Castle Church doors in 1517, marking the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

In the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton there are two groups that could both be considered menaces to society. The Socs are more of a menace to society. Some say however, that the Greasers are more of a menace to society because of the way they look. The Socs are more of a menace to society because they make unprivileged peoples life distressing and hurt the Greasers both physically and mentally.
Because of the granted acceptance that will follow if in a group or crowd, it is no wonder why most of today's students tend to be conformist The strength of desire to conform is a personality trait whereby some people will try to conform to whatever group they are in at the time, while other 'non-conformists' will go in the other direction, deliberately asserting their individuality by rejecting all but a very few sets of norms. Because school (especially middle school and high school) is a time for self discovery, a fair amount of students like the idea of living a non-conformist life style because it provides room for growth and try to follow their own route, but others are too set on being included into groups or specially liked by others. Often, an individual will conform to society to avert ridicule and jeers. Many people conform without even knowing, for example, the way an individual will dress when with friends. Conformity can be showed as: being on time most of the time, fulfilling academic requirements, generally keeping within bounds of accepted decorum, but sometimes social influence and pressure of others, affect the way people think, feel and behave and therefore, cause a deeper conformity.
Some schools that are already taking only boys or girls such as boarding or private schools have proved that their achievements are way high when they are separate. Scholastic Aptitude Test scores are quite different, and their further performances such as in college showed how they have prepared and achieved in formal institutions. Each boy and girl can create synergy effects when they are being with same sex because they are easily to access and share about scholastic issues. Above the subsequent argument, the second reason is about the circumstance of education. Many schools are decided whether they are leading schools or not based on so-called mood or circumstance.
Students won't have the chance to express who they really are when all they have to wear is a silly uniform every single day. High school is especially the time where everyone finds out who they truly are and by enforcing uniforms, how will they express themselves? The problem about uniforms is that everyone looks the same, what happens of someone is trying to fond you? By having students wear what they want and express who they are it would be easier to identify each other. The thing about clothes is that it gives you a confidence boost.
