However, Jem stops them from fighting and invites Walter home for lunch. Scout knows that the Cunningham's are very poor, but Atticus talks to Walter with much respect. Scout has difficulty understanding why he has to be respected when he is "just a Cunningham." One of the boys in her class, Burris Ewell, is extremely dirty. He comes the school only for one day a year and then stops attending.
Students should not have to tryout for school sports. Some tryouts are not far by any means, in which the coaches pick from not the skill but by the way they know the student. Also it brings down students self esteem. Research shows that 70% of kids drop out of sports for many reasons and not making the team is one. When a
The crop farmers pushed that education was not important, generationally that is apparent in the families now. Structurally Mr. Burns School system and the city is oppressed. AS explained earlier, it will be difficult to bring in the proper personnel to bring the city out of the oppressed cycle due to the lack of resources to attract these individuals. Mr. Burns also explained that most of the funding is being sourced to the penitentiary that is close to the school and if they could get just two percent of their funding to educate the children maybe it can reduce the incarceration
He could read at a college reading level in just second grade, but when it came to math he just couldn 't wrap his head around it. When it came to social situations he also struggled; he couldn 't look someone in the eyes, was afraid of any integration with a stranger, and couldn 't be in a crowded place without having a meltdown. All their life my siblings have been defined as odd. The world believes that they should not be given the chances us "normal" people receive. The world has never given them a chance to achieve greatness, it has only pushed them farther behind.
To begin, the first illustration that shows how proving one's innocence may be costly is the protagonist Scout Finch's first day of school. At school, a schoolmate from Scouts class has not brought a lunch so Miss. Caroline offers him to buy lunch with a quatre with one problem, he has to pay her back. This story takes place after the great depression that left many families poor or in terrible conditions including the Cunninghams. Walters family is very large as well as poor and Walter will never to have money to pay the teacher back.
In sticking out at North Shore, the art kids are characterized as outcasts within the high school. They have no popularity, a minimal amount of friends and are often the subject of harsh comments. Janis Ian is constantly the subject of bullying when Regina George spreads the rumor that she is a lesbian, despite the fact that she is not. The art kids are not invited to parties or other social high school events and are typically isolated from high school life. Even the placement of their lunch table is on the perimeter of the lunchroom.
However, towards the beginning she was lonely and felt isolated because she had no friends. We were even shown the footage of her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall on her first day of school because she had no one to sit with during lunch. This condition demonstrates that the thought of being a free thinker in our society, they must be entirely distant from it. Social pressure is a powerful force, and it can be seen when an individual meets other human beings. Therefore, the consequences of not being removed by these social pressures, we can see within the character of Cady at the beginning of the film, when she is completely separated from the other students at the school.
Many of the characters in the novel showed this; Scout’s teacher Miss Caroline, had asked one of her students Walter Cunningham where his lunch had been and Scout had stood from her seat and told Miss Caroline that because he was a Cunningham he wouldn 't have lunch today nor would he have lunch tomorrow. “He had none today nor would he have any tomorrow or the next day.” “ he had probably never seen four quarters together at the same time in his life.” This quote shows that the whole Maycomb town had seen the Cunninghams as poor people, I believe that people may not be very wealthy, but they shouldn 't be called out on it as Scout did to Walter by saying that he would never have any lunch, and that because he’s a Cunningham he would probably never see four quarters at
Middle school is not fair or equal. But not when a school makes a changeWhen someone sits alone at a table they may feel friendless.A school is trying to change that way buy making certain cards for tables. A school is making cards so when you come in you get a card and you go to the color table that your color is.This is helping the kids that don't have a lot of friends.Most kids think when they have no friends they will never have any. Conclusion All most every thing that is fair is not equal.Not anything or any place is fair and equal.Most kids thinks if they have no friends they will never have anything It does not matter what's on the outside but what matters is what is the insides.Finally something that is equal is fair most of the time if it is the same
Therefore, I was uninspired in all my classes which translated to poor grades. Every quarter, the parent and teacher meetings focused on my weak cognitive abilities. My teachers failed to notice an innate leadership and teamwork quality displayed on the playground or during free time. Ironically, employers look for these qualifications in their candidates.
When you’re young no one listens. At least no one listened to me. My teachers saw my lack of interest in pre-algebra to be a sign of disinterest in school as a whole. Parent-teacher conferences, taking away recess, and not even detention could fix the laziness inside of me for things like pre-algebra. All they saw was lost potential; to them I was a bright little girl with no motivation.
The Cunninghams were not the richest people. They would only take what they know they could pay back. The Cunninghams were hit hardest by the depression, because of this, they had little to no money. When Walter Jr. was in school and his teacher offered to loan him money, Scout had to explain to her teacher what was happening. Scout was trying to explain their state in class one day during lunch to Ms. Caroline, “He didn’t forget his lunch, he didn’t have any.
Davidson states that women on welfare do not sit around or are not of specific ethnicity, but rather they find themselves penniless in certain life circumstances. They usually stay in system for couple of years and often attend schools. Some of them may return to the system, simply because the jobs pay less than welfare and have no health benefits. The second argument that Davidson presents is that “welfare encourages teen pregnancy and large dependent families” (1997). Her findings show that it is impossible to live off the welfare and the monthly allowances would not even cover the diapers’ expenses.
Students that are in school during the summer find it harder to concentrate on the work that they are doing in school because they are waiting to get out of school into the nice weather. Year round schools make it difficult to learn with many breaks that they are given which can affect them negatively in and out of school. Year round schools should give long breaks instead of many little breaks because it is shown that there is no difference in learning between year round schools and traditional schools. During 2011-2012 about 3,700 schools were all year round schools and these schools didn’t benefit students and teachers in all good ways. In 2007, a study by Ohio State University found that there is no learning differences between a year round school schedule and a traditional school schedule.
During high school, the biggest obstacle I faced was the extent of the classes and resources offered to me, or lack thereof. Growing up in a rural town with a small high school meant I missed out on many opportunities students in urban areas were offered. For example, I did not have the option to take classes to prepare for going to University, or training involving my major interest of political science. There were no Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors courses offered in some of the common subjects like World History or Civics/Economics. While I was disappointed that I did not get important opportunities like AP, I understood that this was a trade off of living in a small, supportive community, and I accepted this fact.
