Focus decreases and grades become lower as a result of gum’s absence, and many students lack gum’s dental benefits. Ignoring those facts, some schools still can’t seem to come to the obvious conclusion. Schools should allow gum to be chewed in class. Gum should be allowed in classrooms is that it can help kids to concentrate during class. A huge problem in schools is lack of focus, which makes learning more difficult.
What is Love?! Bully Don’t Hurt Me, No More (A satirical analysis of bullying at Worland High School) Individuals and school faculty often wonder “How can one prevent bullying from happening? What solutions can be created to end bullying?” Bullying has become an increasing problem in schools around the world and not much is being done to stop bullies from victimizing others or victimizing themselves. Many have tried anonymous bully forms, talking to an adult, confronting the bully, taking disciplinary actions, or simply “duking it out”. None of which are reasonable solutions and just lead to more offenses or even the transferring of students to other schools.
“The other Rose apparently didn't do very well, for I was placed in the vocational track, a euphemism for the bottom level.”. Rose and his family were unware of the scores being switched, and they didn’t realize what this meant for Rose and his future. The school should have taken action on this problem by switching the scores back and placing the two children in the programs they tested into originally. This connects to Rose’s main idea by showing that the children were overlooked, and that the school was not prepared for this situation to
One example is middle schooler boy who caused a disturbance got treated badly because sometimes he caused a disturbance and that hurt his self esteem. All because he could not go outside, from one story by a mom on her child. Another reason is middle schoolers are socializing a lot more and they feel they need to talk to their friends and recess is perfect time for that. Also it will solve the cellphone problems with recess because if middle schoolers want to socialize than maybe recess can stop kids from going on their phone. Also having no recess will make middle schoolers feel even worse.
The movie Lean On Me related a lot to things we talked about in class this semester. The first situation was when the head of the district came to Joe and tells him he is nothing and tears him down and that he would not be able to fix the troubled high school. By the head guy doing this to Joe it motivated him to take this as a challenge and created a need for achievement. This is talked about in the motivation chapter, chapter 12. I believe this was the best method of motivating Joe since the high school had so many problems and had so much to be done to turn it around and have the majority pass the basic skills test.
There is no perfect way of testing; however there are ways that limit the mind’s creativity and ability think freely. Even with this being known, public schools around the country are having to utilize standardized testing in order to place a score to their student’s intelligence. By using this system, the students don’t develop the capability to answer the open ended questions offered in society or real-life situations. These programs aren’t preparing them for life, but rather a multiple choice survey. Programs such as the ACT and SAT are extremely impactful on a student’s future; however students aren’t analyzing the text and formulating a response, but rather deciding what bubble they haven’t chosen in a while.
When a student is expelled from their local public school they are usually sent to the community school which is were most troubled kids attend. Perceived that most students go there because they have been in and out of suspension or just expelled. In addition another bias opinion is that students can careless about their education and if they graduate or not. When individuals see kids from alternative schools they see students that are barely getting by and are probably not meeting any requirements to graduate. People see a student from any continuation school make the assumption that they are troubled filled or not smart enough to be at a normal school.
First, Nixon stated that adolescents “might not feel connected with the adults,” so they opt not to seek their help when in distress. Another reason may be that adolescents tone down the severity of the cyberbullying; they do not see it as a big issue which is why they don’t tell anyone else. The third reason Nixon proposed was that adolescents “did not consider the adults in their schools to be helpful resources in addressing cyberbullying.” The fourth reason why targets did not actively seek help is because of the overwhelming feeling of shame and helplessness. Bystanders also play a huge role in ceasing or condoning cyberbullying (Davis & Nixon, 2014). According to Cerna, et.
It has been the fault of the school district, school, and teachers as to why the students have a lack of global perspective. In talking to my students I found out that they think very little of competing academically with another country and how the use of technology impacts their ability to compete. Other than a social studies course, we rarely mention what takes place in countries other than our own and it is even more rare to talk about how these countries are using technology or their advancement in education. Not taking advantage of this platform with our students and colleagues eventually puts us all at a disadvantage because we limit our research for competing to neighboring schools and counties before we even look at things from a national
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades. Their guardians or whoever they live with needs to help them be an educated person so that they could have a bright future.
One survey question reads, “If you ever experienced a form of bullying, how did it make you feel? Did you go to someone for help?” One student answered this question by saying, “yes it made me feel really shitty and made me hurt myself. No, I did not go for help, nobody would listen.” This student shows that they chose to not say anything because they feel or know that nobody would listen anyway. This does not only include Madera High staff, yet school staff should start to pay more attention to who they think may be in trouble because school is basically a student 's second home and spend most of their time there. This is why school teachers have a big role in this.
This gets a little complicated though because students are often not heard or asked their opinions. Feeling like their opinion doesn’t matter is very discouraging to students but the ones that dare to make themselves heard say that is very inspiring to actually get their point across. Betty Jo Jordan, executive assistance to the State Superintendent of West Virginia, said after speaking with a few middle to high school age girls, “I think sometimes we completely ignore the fact that these kids think a lot about a lot of things. We don’t really ask them for their opinions or their ideas on how to make schools better... That was very enlightening.” (Patrick) About a year or so after that group of girls spoke to her, I had a personal conversation with one of them and she has informed me on how much more she values her education from the experience. School reform, as well as school itself, should be utilized to benefit students in every way possible and I see no better way to do that than putting them right into
This problem not only has to do with the lack of proper education but also the fact that most students will not pass due to our education system. High school does not prepare a student to take the SAT or ACT although it helps, it doesn’t meet the needs of the test. The test is designed to trick and confuse the student, not to accurate display the student’s ability to learn. Most of the SAT or ACT testing does not show how well a student performs in a class room setting but rather show how well a student can take the test. As well as high school
First thing to remember, students are not protected from problems or disagreement, issue that happened at home also transfers to school or the inner conflict turn into exterior ones. Especially, as children are not quite skilled to resolve the disputes adequately, for this reason the peer mediation project is practical. Another key point, the traditional problem solving techniques, where adult interferes and makes a decision is to becoming less effective. Notably, students have the ability to solve their issue with proper mediation training. In fact, WJC uses different types of peer, ones that have more influence in the school community and the ones that have less impact, this way the students receive fair
The information that they know might be different from what’s on the test or they might not be familiar with certain information about the test since they’ve never heard of it, and consequently they lose points for something they had no control over. In the article ‘Standardized Testing: Good point and Bad’ Maggie says that a 5th grader, she tutored didn’t know what a recipe was and if a test were to ask or mention a recipe she would be at a disadvantage, as most 5th graders know what that is. There’s no way of knowing for sure that every child being tested has the amount of background knowledge needed for the test (Margie, 1). It’s not that the students aren’t smart enough, it’s just that not all of them will know key information needed for the test. In the article ’12 Vital Pros and Cons of Standardized Testing’ it says that there isn’t a test that can address all he factors that accurately measure what’s been learned.
