Caroline Bird’s argument against postsecondary education is incorrect, specifically her beliefs that students are exposed to too many options and graduates only desire jobs that save people. First, Caroline Bird shares her belief that “a college experience that piles option on option …merely adds to the contemporary nightmare.” Although too many options are sometimes overwhelming, limiting choices would also create undue pressure for students. For instance, as a student, I am exposed to several options: what classes I should take, what major I should major in, what professors I should take, etc.
and I’m the one who thinks that way too. I have decided to talk to you about uniform because I want to change your mind about wearing a uniform which is not always necessary when you going to study at the university. Before we start, I will divide my presentation into 3 parts. The first one is “history of uniform”, next is “cons of school/university uniforms” and the last one is “effect”. So let me start at history part.
Personally, I disagree with why the paper was shut down over a few mean comments directed to those teachers (in an April Fools article nonetheless), but because “The Defectator” gave a distraction from learning (increased tension between students and teachers), Principal Perullo was allowed to act under in loco parentis and limit the freedom of press of the students. If students today write an article that interferes with Stuyvesant’s learning mission, then our current principal, Principal Contreras, has the given right to limit our freedom of press as
Needless to say, students want something to be done to protect them from student debt. Many groups fighting for legislation have erupted in recent years. One group made up of student debt holders, the Student Debt Reduction Coalition, states that their mission is to "encourage employers to offer student loan repayment plans… [and to] standardize the financial counseling process for student loan borrowers" (SDRC). Other groups, such as the Corinthian 15 have taken more drastic measures such as striking and refusing to make payments on their loans (Nasiripour). Whether they are being radical, and breaking a few laws, or simply asking for more protection, many students do not believe that there is enough regulation in the world of student loans.
The vast majority of students enrolled in a college campus are extremely unprepared for the environment. Many students do not begin preparing themselves for the college setting until they have completed high school; however, this decision may be harmful in the overall success of the individual. While early college preparation can cause burnout, physical or mental collapse due to overwork or stress, parents and administrators should encourage students to begin preparing for college ahead of time because preparation will result in students beging ready for the vigirous course work, allow students to be aware of the expectations prestigious universities anticipate, and introduce students to the wide array of opportunities that are available.
In reaction to a pattern of on-campus racist incidents, the campus-wide protests at the University of Missouri at Columbia sparked a nationwide protest throughout many college campuses about the practice of Institutional Racism. As a result of these protests, several leaders of universities and professors have resigned while many universities have tried to address the demands of protesters ranging from firing controversial staff and leadership, hiring new diverse faculty and administration, renaming campus buildings, divesting from institutions that are inherently racist such as prisons and reinvesting money into communities (Black Liberation Collective). As higher education institutions respond, they should take students ' and organizations ' demands seriously and create and implement plans of actions to address them since these demands are built on racial oppressions that minorities sense. Context at the University of Missouri: Missouri has been the focal point of racially inspired protests
The most obviously consequence is the phenomena of so-called “snowflake” college students. Colleges today isolate students from contradictions to a leftist worldview by smearing and silencing opposing ideas. Therefore, liberal students who have been exposed to nothing but affirmation and agreement throughout most of their education cannot deal with the differing thoughts and opinions present in the real world. These college students, instead of acting rationally and civilly when confronted with contrary views, are prone to melting down like snowflakes, hence the nickname.
Are Trigger Warnings Doing More Harm Than Good? The biggest question that we see spreading across a number of universities today is whether or not we should require trigger warnings in the college classroom. Within universities and colleges, trigger warnings are the idea that professors should caution their students about any potentially upsetting material that they are about to be exposed to. Developing into a movement lead mostly by students; college campuses are now being demanded to “be scrubbed clean of words, ideas, and subjects that might cause discomfort or give offense (Lukianoff,1).”
It was the day that I’ve been waiting for over 3 years. A day that would finally let me be normal like everyone else and have the choices as other people without being ridiculed by the teachers that saw me as unqualified to be taught in a standard way. Thanks to my mom thinking that it would be a marvelous idea to have me be placed in special education due to my lack of effort taking reading comprehension test. I was placed in special education at the end of 5th grade, and sought to see the end of it. That day would eventually come on early April of 2015, where I was called upon to the office during class in 8th grade.
Although the professor was passionate about her research, she focused intently on technology that is no longer relevant in modern society. The course did not accurately expose me to the communication department. Prof. Grimes’ Media Writing was a much better experience. The class required us to create a mock public relations press conference for an event of our choosing. This project was the excellent experience of real-world applications of a communication degree.
Gutting and Edmundson both blame the structure of the education system, but at the same time it sounds like the change needs to come only from students. In their book I wouldn’t always be their “ideal” student that is depending on the classes they would teach me. Like Gutting said colleges sometimes give unnecessary courses, so it can be hard to be interested in something that in no way relates to your major. If one of the authors were instructors in one of my unnecessary” classes they probably would make comments that I’m “weak minded” or “not genius”. However, if they taught in one of my classes that I actually have an interest in I might have a shot of being their perfect student they have conversations about on the
It 's an argument that can be easily be refuted. I think what the author tries to do with this essay was to send information and possibly change people 's ideas of the speech codes. I would say his essay is weak simply because he would have statements that did not have support like in paragraph 8, Posner was talking how the universities adopted speech and sex codes “because that’s what most students want” he would just leave the statement hanging, without making it clear. Also, I just don’t think his argument got many people 's agreement because he kept saying that These "children" still need to be
This is why China is in trouble. The Chinese people are taking everything at face value. No one is questioning their teachers and without questions the students do not have a full understanding. Another example of the Chinese stuck in an information drought would be one of Applebaum’s example of censorship saying, “the Chinese government also demanded that Microsoft delete the writings of a free-speech advocate from its blog software” (Applebaum 643). Microsoft is only one example of censorship in China.
In 2012 Robert Applebaum composed an article saying that the administration ought to pardon a percentage of the understudy credit obligation a portion of the general population in this nation have racked up, Kayla Webley broke down his article and after that thought of her own reasons why forgetting the obligation would be a terrible thought. Her article was exceptionally powerful in demonstrating, the way that generous the credits would put the nation in a bad position than it as of now is and it would send the wrong message to individuals in this nation the individuals who went/are attending a university and the individuals who didn 't/won 't. Applebaum construct his article in light of his own motivation and utilized his own figures and "certainties" to go down his article. While Webley utilized and cited data from trusted/master sources. Webley demonstrated that Applebaum article is false and has numerous defects in the rationale utilized and she did as such capability and in an exceptionally powerful manner.
The hiring committee could have stated they were looking for applicants with that experience in person, during the interview process. All of these preventative measures could be a successful way to make sure events like this do not happen in the future to SVSU, and other universities in the country. It would limit the amount of mild cases like this one where the plaintiff does not have a strong argument, and only brought the alleged charges against the university because she was denied the position of Coordinator of Campus Recreation. Cases like this happen all the time, even to our very own recreation center on Ball States Campus. The staff there is very careful with daily operations and tries to limit the amount of liability that they face.
