Sleeping education is the method that is widely used in the society in Brave New World. Moral suggestions about discipline and rules are broadcasted to everyone from a young age for numerous times. As a result, people lose their ability to question and think independently; instead, each time when encountered a complicated situation, they would automatically refer to what was taught to them and act in the way that the controller desire. As the director of conditioning center explains to his student, “Till as last the child’s mind is these suggestions, and the sum of the suggestions is the child’s mind. And not the child’s mind only.
They want a change in the education system so that children can prosper and be able to boost our declining economy. Children have always dreaded going to school because of boring classes and monotone teachers, but children are not only noticing this but so are influential adults. Robinson describes the school system as a factory forming students into what we want and banishing out the ones that do not reform into the model student. Moore agrees that the school system is suppressive when he says, “As soon as I entered high school-the public school system…I was walking the halls of a two-thousand-plus –inmate holding pen” (134). Moore felt trapped and earlier revealed that he dropped out of school sophomore year because he disliked school from first grade.
This can mainly be seen between a student and a teacher, another adult, or just a simple student with student. The same attitude that is being used toward parents is used against school officials. Schools should enforce more disciplinary action against these rude teens so as to make them pay for their lack of respect. As teenagers go about their daily lives, they observe others being rude to their friends and their parents, so they in turn do the same. The amount of peer pressure is increasing; therefore, it results in conforming to their peers’ expectations.
Orwell creates a build-up of conflict between the Party and the People by using language techniques, like juxtaposition, and also different lengths of sentence structures to emphasise conflict in the extract along with immoral themes. The immoral themes in the book include that when children grows up they become junior spies and then they monitor their parents for the party (to make sure no crimes are committed such as thought crime), this is immoral as the party have turned the peoples own children against them and have turned young innocent minds into hardworking, emotionless machines. An example of this is when Mrs Parsons’ children (part 1 chapter 2) interrogate Winston for thought crime. This already creates conflict between the people and the party as the party have so much power they can take away peoples children and turn them against them, children are regarded as a parent most important asset and in 1984 their ripped apart from them ,emotionally, which creates hatred towards the party. Orwell uses Juxtaposition as he takes a child which is normally perceived as innocent, loving and naïve but Orwell uses those characteristics of a child and makes them devious, obedient and smart to trap and suss
Where is the student freedom to express their ideas? Fact base system only in and out of schools will demolish creativity, critical thinking and reasoning skills. Such a system will cause teachers eventually fail their students in achieving the skill of metacognition and reaching their maximum potential. Students will lose their capacity of creation, thinking outside the box, reasoning and comprehending. Prediction of an outcome to any given situations or circumstances faced either by individual or a society where even taught ‘fact’ cannot be applied to solve the dilemma can result in major
Bullying in School Bullying in school can cause problems with student’s self-esteem, injuries or death of innocent children, and retaliation occurs, making a cycle of bullies. Bullying at school can be face to face or on a computer using websites such as Facebook, emails, and instant messaging. The cycle of bullies needs to stop at some point. Prevention starts at a very young age at home and continues throughout the child’s lifetime. Low self esteem is what starts young students to bully others as they are growing up.

He also says that learning is separate from living and in other ways, he learns that he is abandoned and unfaithful. He describe that children are skillful learner but “learns that to be wrong, uncertain, confused, is a crime.” The only thing that’s important is what the system wants and think is important. So the students learn not to ask any questions and is given no chances, he soon accepts the adults stereo type of him. He also says “the schools think only they can teach him, and many that are more complicated than the ones they do try to teach him.” They learned various strategies to get the right answers out of the teacher “prying the answers out of the teacher.” Holt express that children are to ignore the other students and to focus only on the teacher. Another part of this essay by Holt he states that children learn from school how to shut their brains off which eventually will lead them to using drugs.
Should people who do not care be forced to care? In elementary school, students are taught the foundations of learning. Later in their academic career, these foundations are revisited and built upon. However, when students do not understand a lesson, their foundations are incomplete. The students of Mrs. Gruwell’s class in the film Freedom Writers were subject to these problems.
