Most people want to shield high school students from the harsh realities of life that they will eventually find out. Censoring the book will only make it worse and make reality even worse for these young minds. As controversial as the language used in the book is, it
Both the shows are also the same genre of television which is teen drama. The storyline and the plot of the shows relate to teenagers so that teenagers can watch the shows and relate to them. ‘Dawson’s Creek’ is a show about four friends trying to get through their teenage years as easy as possible despite all of them changing in very obvious ways. ‘The O.C.’ on the other hand is about three rich teenagers
Maybe I tried just hard enough to change the status quo of how people viewed us. If you know someone that does fit some of the stereotypes above, that does not define them as a person. When people kept talking about how being homeschooled would probably suck, and they were right. Sometimes it was terrible, but not because you do not have friends or have 50 siblings and your parents are crazy for Jesus. It was because you do not feel like you fit in and that is what teenagers desire most.
Although some teens of “To Tell or Not to Tell” by Mary Kate Frank have argued that people don’t speak up because they’d rather not get in trouble or make their friends mad at them, closer examination shows you should speak up because if you don’t your friends could become severely hurt or die due to your actions. “Together with a few friends, Matthew reported what he knew to school administrators, and police ultimately arrested and charged two students involved in the shooting plot.” This sentence from the article is a perfect example of why sometimes it’s a good reason to be a whistle-blower, a whistle-blower is someone who tells for a good purpose. If Matthew decided not to tell them a great deal of lives could have been lost. If Matthew hadn’t told about the shooting, his life could have been cut short and so would many others who went to his school. He wasn’t going to tell originally, but his friends helped him tell
Some people at Webb City High School would be very angry to find out that they will no longer be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities due to their grades. The students who really want to play sports though would get into gear and get their grades up to prove that they deserve to play. What is a School without education? Pointless. Other people in the community believe that the “C rule” is not fair for the people who do not participate in any extracurricular activities because they will not be being punished.
All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.
This also means that if one doesn’t tell on her friends, one will be punished. This indirect punishment could affect students’ futures, “Some students (that violated the honor code) who had already graduated lost their diplomas” (Source D). Loosing one’s diploma after graduating high school and being in the midst of college not only affects one’s personal life but also affect one’s future career, income and family life. The Honor Code allows for the futures of violators to be severely hindered and hence is not a fair judgment for punishment. While cheating should have repercussions, those who don’t tell on cheaters should not be punished.
It could mess things up because the other kids are not learning anything. It happens more with high school student’s teachers not caring. Social class isn’t always a reason kids education is messed up but it can in some ways like raising there kids depending on how they was raised could be a reason, and it all depends on the kid whether they want to listen or not. Parents might have to discipline there kid in order to listen and teach them while they are young before it’s too late and lack of a lot of things. It has its pros and cons on whether it will or won’t affect kid’s education.
Perhaps the parents could have pulled their child out of that school to prevent further damage, but things are easier say than done. Bullying is something I worry my own son will have to deal with in the future, but if we are lucky, hopefully he will not have to deal with it. To be honest, after watching the video it did saddened me and the same time in made me feel upset. It saddened me because I know both the parents and school administrators could
When colleges look at what they did as a teen, it could ruin their whole career and it could obtain them from getting a athletic scholarship. They shouldn't test students for drugs because it will be on there high school record. Besides the things people do as teens usually regret as adults (Joseph C.
