Speaking to Holly O’Mahony of the Guardian, Dewar-Langridge scoffs at people who say that young prisoners do not deserve an education because they’ve already committed crimes. For Dewar-Langridge, education is the best choice for rehabilitating young male offenders, prevent more crimes from being committed, and allow them to become important members of the community. She said that most of the young offenders have had negative experiences at school. This means that it’s going to be a tough challenge engaging them in an educational background they did not choose for themselves.
The book The Marshmallow test by Walter Mischel is all about how self-control is the most important thing in society. It really is the engine of success after reading this book. Many people would say a lot of things that are more important to be taught in schools like art and sports, but in my opinion I think how to have self-control is way more important because it teaches kids how to be responsible at a very young age. This book goes into the phycology behind self-control. I was interested in this book for many reasons but the main one is that I had a hard time trying to get stuff done on time because I had no self-control, this book opens eyes.
The first is to react negatively: losing hope in everything around you and never look at the positive aspects of the situation.

Maybe even hating him a little.” Baba had a one-dimensional view of the world, he saw things very simply and saw things as being either good or bad. I think that this might've impacted Amirs independence and personal views on his life experiences, as everything he had witnessed and believed had been influenced by his father's beliefs. This is where I'm coming from. The current year twelve cohort are going to move on to further study and other will jump straight into the workforce, and there will always be people who want to change you into something that you're
As a minority student, the author provides a first hand experience in the education system and its barrier.

Also, this source amplifies my argument in the essay with the first hand experience of a minority student and the barriers he had to face during the years
Becoming a first generation college student has been stressful to say the least.

This movement has become very popular with both parents and students. The idea is that if everybody continues to opt out from test eventually schools will realize that testing is not working and they will change the ‘norm’ of education. However, the only issue is that they do not provide a good alternative method, their main objective is to raise awareness on how stressful test situations are not the answer. They are on the right track but you can’t just wipe out testing and expect students to magically do better.
“What do we live for if its not to make life less difficult for each other?” Many of us students struggle throughout High School with parents getting divorced, loosing a loved one, teenage pregnancy, and family issues etc. These obstacles shouldn’t get in the way of continuing with life and furthering in our education and future. No one has it easy that’s why being a mentor for students my age and younger meant a difference in the world. Making it a little easier for students not to always see the bad was my goal.

Eleanor Roosevelt had once stated “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the think which you think you cannot do.” An interpretation of this is that the only way growth and courage can increase is when the time is taken to perform at the best state possible. This can occurs when there is a challenge which may or may not be extremely difficult, but you must push forward and come out ahead. The Little Rock nine had to endure going to school facing true hatred and constant denigrate each and everyday.
I missed a lot of school growing up because of my cancer treatments and surgeries, but I never fell behind, and I always had teachers that looked out for me. For high school, I went to J.M. Tate High School, and graduated with highest honors. I loved school from kindergarten all the way through
Though many aspects of this chapter enhances the corruptions and detriments of society, this quote specifies on how this lifestyle poisons our morality. I can relate to this quote regarding my academic life. As Howard would say “you are all victims of the Scarsdale School systems,” many students, myself included, work tirelessly because of fear. We are scared of competitors and standards, and have truly lost sight of what we hope to achieve and why. I find myself stressed with the goals to beat other students, get into the best college possible, and please my parents.
School is the place where one should learn life skills and where one learns more about who you they are while setting the base for their future; in fact. it has the power to prevent crime (Boone). School administrators need to recognize that children are still children and if they continue to criminalize them, that is exactly what they will become.
