4. Explain the strategic purpose of • School governors • Senior management team • Other statuary roles e.g. SENCO • Teachers • Support staff roles All roles in a school are important and no role is more important than another. School governors work within a school and are a critical friend to school, they offer support and advice through the schools good and bad times. They help to set high standards for the school, plan the schools future and set targets for school improvements.
Teachers have several responsibilities as a teacher to the students. Some responsibilities of each teacher are teaching the student, grading papers, make sure that the student understands what is being taught, making sure that the students have grades in the grade book. Each teacher is responsible for each student while at school or a school function, the teacher also has to get the student to understand that if needed the student can talk to them with confidence that they will not be telling anyone. Teachers are not teachers for the pay, most are teachers because they enjoy teaching children or they just love being around children. The pay is set on a set salary and paid once a month, some even get paid for the months they are not working.
School governors are at the heart of how a school operates, how they do there job effects the interests of pupils, staff and the reputation of a school in the community. Governors challenge and support the head teacher by gathering views, asking questions and having discussions on what’s best for the school. They must be prepared to take and give advice and must be loyal to their decisions taken by the governing body as a whole. Senior Management Team The senior management team work closely with the Head teacher, usually they are made up of more knowledgeable staff with the management positions made up of the Deputy Head teacher, year group leaders, Senco, and the foundation stage leader. They will meet on a regular basis to discuss issues and make decisions concerning the school or about the implementation of the school improvement plan.
Walraich, Bickman, Lambert, Simmons and Doffing (2005) found that “When direct information from the teacher is available, there are often discrepancies in the parent and teacher report’s of behaviour because they observe the child in very different settings”. Researchers have stated that “Information provided by the teacher is crucial to evaluate pharmalogic interventions because the teacher’s observe children when the medications are at the peak levels which parents rarely see; therefore teachers are in the best position to report on the efficacy” (Walraich et al. 2005). Communication between the child’s parents and their teacher on a regular basis (daily if necessary) operates as a means of transport by which the child’s school behaviour is assessed and this behaviour should then be reinforced within the home so that the expectations of the child are consistent. Barkley (1981) believes that “A device for utilising homebased reinforcement is a daily report
It decides if they go into remedial, regular, or advanced classes. Then some students end up learning more than others where learning actually counts because administrators want to get them test ready. Before, teachers taught the subject and sometime throughout the year students took a test without pressure that they would be held back or certain things like that. Teachers are also affected because they actually have to teach two courses. There is a period out of the year where they can only teach about the subjects on the test.
I guess I was blind to see how teachers have to teach and how they teach. Back in my day when I went to school teachers cared and tried to keep the students from not being bored and keep us engaged. Now that both my girls are in school. I think it’s bad for the teachers and the students cause all they have is test after test that last for weeks just to prove where our kids stand with the rest of the nation or in the county.

I don’t understand why the information in some classes is more educational than others, when we should all be learning the same stuff. Many people argue that money shouldn’t matter, but money does determine what kind of teachers and supplies there are within a school. A prime example that can be a problem is there may be a class where the teacher knows how to teach the information that the students need to know, but there are no books for the students. Many school districts are participating in this case in order to help change how the distribution of wealth happens within the state. Every district should receive a certain amount of money and supplies in order for every school to give every student in the state of Texas an equal opportunity towards a successful future.
On the website isbe.net it reveals a chart that clearly shows that on the ACT we are performing below average on Math, English, Science, and Reading. Morton offers tutoring for kids during supervision so it’s not like they’re not trying to boost it up its just the way they are isn’t working. Kids don’t want to go learn when they have free period? Also they take tests to see what students need extra help on but if you actually look closely to a student taking the test they’re just marking random letters so they can be done and go home. Morton needs a new system for the students but one can’t confront the system without obstacles.
It is for the purpose of labeling peers and deciphering which children are inferior, it is the social aspect of schooling. Lastly, the propaedeutic function teaches a minimal amount of children to manage the population to that the government can continue without being challenged. Initially I was taken aback while reading Gatto’s article, particularly in regards to Inglis six functions but upon further review and digging deep into my own personal experiences with the public education system, predominantly looking at my years spent in high school I would say there are some sad realities behind theses six
