2). Instead of searching for a better educational environment, students look for better tests numbers. Lang Wood goes on by stating “Students can easily become discouraged and negative about education in general, which affects their learning ability” (par. 2). 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.
For example, the author uses sarcasm to point out the lack of support for students when he quotes, “Our public high schools place too much focus on preparing kids for professional careers.” The author later criticizes the unorganized approach teachers take towards the discipline and teaching of students when he quotes, ‘"Educators do a lot to ensure that the most hopeless students slip through the cracks... Arbitrary rules, irregularly enforced discipline, and pointless paperwork are just the first things that come to mind. "’ 2. What rhetorical strategies does the writer use to achieve this satire? List them, and explain how each is used.
This quote shows that the bullies are more concentrated on bullying their victims rather than their school work. This quote also shows that bullies are not very concentrated in school and will probably fail in school and not get a good career. Another example that shows that students are beginning not to care about school is, “Many of the victims are disengaged in school” (Wolpert 1). This evidence is important because the victims are scared of bullies and are really not concentrating in school like before they began to be bullied. Multiple victims who are hurt from being bullied are starting to fail in school.
There are some really strong contradictions in Devlin's article. He says that “helping students appreciate and welcome differences in culture, racial heritage, and personal identity, are increasingly hard to teach.” Yet Devlin’s solutions offer up ideas like enforcing a “dress code”, having gender segregated classes, making the students where I.D tags so they would be easily identified by cameras, having more drug sniffing dogs, and random spot checks of cars and lockers. Turning the schools into a police state does not set a good example for tolerance. Dress codes do not show tolerance. Gender segregation is not going to teach men and women to work together as
There is usually bullying in schools, but something that not everyone knows is that there is also racism going on in schools everyday. There are students and teachers that are racist and that should not be acceptable. A very popular racist phrase is “go back where you came from” that phrase is disrespectful in so many ways. America is supposed to be the land of opportunities not the land to be bullied because of your race. Kids go to school to learn and be successful, but how can they achieve anything when they are constantly being bashed on.
When he heard the insults against Joyce, he only said “let’s get quiet and make the best of it” it is unacceptable heard a teacher said that. Maybe in the past don’t exited the NAEYC Code of ethical, and maybe no body remember Mr. Moore one of a value most important for a teacher according to the NAEYC “Respect diversity in children, families, and colleagues”, It is very sad see how those kind of event affected persons and even generation through the
Lac is it good or the bad students. Many students would agree that it is bad for the student because it teaches them that when they grow up they should be unfair and unreasonable. They will do the same thing to other teens once they are adults, and adults and teens will forever be unhappy with each other. This would also make students lack intelligence because all that time they would be in LAC they could be learning their subject. It will also cause stress for the students because they will have a hard time learning there subject.
Sherry thinks this is wrong because it cheats them and the employers who expect graduates to have basic skills. 2. The author’s title is misleading. It leads you to think the story will be about cursing but it is really meant to represent the word failure or flunking. I think she chose this title because even though the “F” word is not as bad as you thought it would be, failure is still a pretty bad word for most people.
Universities favor grade point averages, high standardized test scores, advanced placement courses, and any other reflection of above average education. A high school dropout does not have the privilege of enrolling in advanced placement classes, nor the privilege of gaining the statistics needed to score above average on standardized placement tests. By allowing guns in schools, it lowers the students learning ability and causes them to feel better off by dropping the class, which leads to a ruined life in the future. Not only is dropping out of school a problem because students fear teachers, but students can also fear other
Being the butt of bullies and social outcast for having Tourette’s syndrome was a major impact on everyday life. Misunderstood, feared and harassed by even ordinary people, not understanding what this disorder was. Tourette’s affected grades and friendships.
