She explains how her son’s English teacher with unusual way instead of moving him to front row made him to be more serious about learning and specific English .The result was unbelievable, he finished that class with A grade .First Sherry was shocked when the teacher said “I flunk them” then she realized that would be helpful for her son. There are many styles for teaching which looks not proper for first time then after a while when you understand how that help to improve majority of students grades, you will start to believe that style’s advantage. So now we can say F word which author is used in her essay’s title is “Flunk.” Author explains about students who sadly have no motivation to continue their education and are resentful for passing any test which in their mentality they are already
My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back. My senior year I transferred to Christ Missionary and Industrial high school (college) the year flew by but I really enjoyed myself there. Now I am still here at CM&I , I supposed to be a summer graduate if everything goes as planned. Once I finish high school I plan on signing up for the air
His parents still don’t know about it and he knows they will be furious when they find out that he’s been kicked out of yet another school. He doesn’t really like the school and said it was full of “phonies”, something he just can’t stand. He doesn’t really have any friends either. He just talks to his roommate and the book that lives in the next dorm, Ackley. Holden’s roommate is a complete ladies' man named Stradlater.
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
So I entered high school in all regular classes. I immediately became entrenched in a world of boredom. All the classes were easy, I had straight A’s, but I was not motivated to learn. This event showed me that faculty members are not interested in the academic interests of their students, but following the system. At the time I did not realize that I was just part of a system, I thought that
To whom it may concern, As I ponder the academic future of my child, I sit down and think of my academic past. I attended Hatch Middle School when I was a teenager. I didn’t like it, at all. I was bullied for no reason. I was always worried about being beaten because of my ethnic background.
By the time that we were in middle school, the majority of my friends felt that reading was a chore and turned their noses up at any books I'd suggested to them. It's only logical to conclude that there is some grievous error that teachers are making between first grade and junior high school. That's not to say that students cannot be rescued from this loathing of books during high school, but by the manner that high school teachers present them, that isn't a likely prospect. The serious decline of youths reading literature that Francine Prose notes in her essay is a depressing, almost tragic circumstance. If reading is exercise for the brain, then are teachers doing enough in other areas of education to promote thinking?
He lost the ability of hearing in the war. My first impression of him thought that he is only one the disable students on campus. I can feel he is so shy, fear and low self-esteem around the class because I saw him, he is setting at the corner with his deaf interpreter. I thought his low self-esteem is only coming from his disabilities, but I never anticipated that he is one of the return solider. Then, in the first day of the chemistry laboratory, we need to choose the group to do all the experiment together for the whole semester.
Summary of Against School by John Taylor Gatto Most kids today cringe at the fact that they have to get up at the crack of dawn to go to school. They grunt and complain about having to complete six classes a day, five days a week, nine months out of the year, and twelve years of school. In the article “Against School”, John Taylor Gatto explains how he thinks public education cripples our kids and why. His first main point is that both the students and teachers are suffering from boredom. The kids seemed to be bored because they think that the work is stupid or that they are already aware of how to do it.
I can remember most of my early childhood being an infinite stretch of loneliness and a great sense of grief. That woman forced me through daily pains that no one should have to endure – I remember school being on par with hell, each day I was bullied and teased because I was forced to wear cheap, awkward clothes that didn’t fit. Her aim was to keep me humiliated, make me meek and be low maintenance. My time with her was an endless nightmare. I eventually got away.
