For example, Barry ran away from home at night to come to school because it the only place she feels content after her parent argument that night. Without even recognizing that she is gone like any other family do, Barry feel happy because she had more time to spend on school every morning just to paint and draw. Even, though she spends every morning on school to draw and paint her teacher Mrs. LeSane never minded which she considered herself a lucky child (Barry, 1992, p.85). Instead, of judging Barry as
In Lynda Barry’s essay “The Sanctuary of School” the author gives her personal feelings about the education system and when times get hard the first thing to go from the schools are the art programs and the after school care. She than talks about how her home was not a safe and stable place to live with her brother and she found her school to be a safe haven. I also have a sanctuary and peaceful place I run to when I needs to get peace and it’s my grandmother house. My grandmother home was more than just a place to visit on Sundays it was my sanctuary. Her home was a place where I could unwind and feel free when my home became hard to handle.
In “The Sanctuary of School” Lynda applies her personal life to the fact that some people think cutting down budgets for public schools will benefit when times get tough. Also that art, music and the creative ideas will be the first to go when budgets are cut. Lynda had a rough childhood where her parents had money issues and family members that needed temporarily to stay at her home (Barry, 721). The lack of attention from her parents made her look for attention elsewhere in this case the school. Lynda saw her teacher Mrs. LeSane as a mother figure.
I was on my own now, facing the great unknowns of preschool. I took a deep breath, gave Mom my biggest bearhug, and said my goodbyes. I knew for a fact that Mom left while I was at school, but the fear of her leaving me was still there. This fear, however, continued to shrink smaller and smaller every day I saw the van in the parking lot. Learning my abc’s and 123’s had been fun, but that was for preschoolers.
School Wide Writing Project Former superintendent, Lawrence B. Shlack argues in his article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, that too many students believe that going to college is the only option after high school in order to be successful. The main purpose of this article is to convince students to be less narrow-minded on the topic of post-high school decisions and effectively provides the reasoning behind his logic and provides alternatives. As a retired superintendent, Schlack proves that he has sufficient credibility and knowledge of high school students and what most of them are thinking. The use of pathos and ethos combined with his credibility appeals to the readers strongly by making the article relatable for most high schoolers. Knowledge and credibility on the topic along with emotional and logical appeals made Schlack’s article’s persuasion effective.
Unlike at home, her school was a place she was noticed and cared about. Barry opened her story by telling us about the first time she snuck out of her house at the age of seven.

When Joe Clark first met his students he used pathos by telling the students who didn't get kicked out that if they do not pass the state exam they won't be welcomed back into the school. The staff had it coming for them when Joe scheduled a meeting after he found out the scores on the practice test, Joe used pathos to make the staff guilty for how poor the kids did on the test by blaming them for such low scores. Finally he used pathos to encourage his students to do well on the test, reminding them what they have been working for the whole time. Joe Clark persuaded his staff and students to work hard by using pathos to send an emotional
In comparison to the resolution, it turns out that Laurie 's at home behavior matches the same description of Charles disrespectful behavior at school. When you look back you see how quite a few times when Laurie is home, he is disrespectful to his parents and doesn’t have any proper manners. Along with using foreshadowing, the author also uses irony, which is used towards the end of the story when the mom is trying to find out who Charles the troublemaker 's mom is at the P.T.A. meeting. The author writes on the last page, “Laurie adjusts very quickly.
In the movie “Matilda,” a six-year-old girl named Matilda Woodworm has a great learning ability with a strong sense of acting independently, but her parents refuse to send her to school.

The solution I am proposing is a whole new school system. The government will have to stop and realize the issue and invest time and money ifficently to help the school. It will difficult to get rid of testing seeing as that is what colleges look at to see if a student qualifies however if we pass a law or tweak the ones already in place we can change the norm for the evaluation of a student all together. The Society has slowly started to "teach to test" after the No Child Left Behind Act was enacted. The test may help with evaluating some qualities in a child but it ignores the qualities a student will need to succeed in real life situations.
To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice. My parents dream include getting good grades while making the good decisions. One quote by an unknown person said “ Move out of your comfort zone you can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when u try sometimes”. As my parents dream of getting good grades, they also want me to learn new things. To be successful is going to be hard and challenging step with hard work.
