Due to children’s skin color and cultural views, many are differentiated, discriminated and stereotyped, wrongfully by students and teachers, depriving them of the full learning experience. Differentiation has a prominent place in today’s education system. Children are placed in circumstances of embarrassment and confusion as to why this is happening to them in what is supposedly a safe and comfortable setting. As an educator, one should be aware of what is right and wrong to say in the classroom. A helpful way to keep this frame of mind is to consider Abraham Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs.” The pyramid consists of “…the motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs…” (McLeod).
As cited by the Gender Spectrum (n.d.), school is the most powerful socializing force and a venue for the students to identify their true gender identity. Students are not able to express fully themselves since they have received cues from their educational institutions about what is or is not acceptable. Factors inside the school have been the most prominent indicator of the students’ gender identity due to the idea that the students spend more time in school and provide them opportunity to learn more about the gender spectrum. According to Bigler, Hayes & Hamilton (2013), teachers and peers are the primary factors affecting gender identity and expression of the students by directly providing males and females with different learning opportunities and feedback. These two factors are also the sources of learning about gender itself.
Students had been verbally harassed and physically threatened as the latest trends in cyber bullying. Often, the cause of the bullying occurs from different people for not wearing the right clothes. If someone is looking even better, most people feel that they have a higher social status, or use more energy. In contrast to the uniform allows children to learn in a more level playing field in a minor decision about choosing the clothing brand of clothing or physical appearance. The idea of school uniforms seem antiquated concept for many North Americans.
As suggested by Jones et al. (2016), gender stereotypes create a sense of estrangement from society through spiteful actions and rejection from peers and adults alike. Exposure to media (For example, television programmes, magazines and film), other children, family members and school staff aids children in their formation of identity (MacNaughton, 2000, p. 20). This in turn, can affect how curriculum experiences are presented in the classroom. Therefore, it is imperative for educators to understand that gender inequality, due to portrayed stereotypes, can be detrimental to a child’s developing identity (National Union of Teachers, 2013).
They have to fight against the other minorities that are depicted poorly, and Asian Americans have some advantages in their work fields, but racism is ignored and discrimination is too.A majority of other minorities one will come across has the negative stereotypes of being lazy and stupid attributed to them unlike the Asian Americans. Violence has broken out due to this issue, and many children are prone to bullying by other minorities when they are seen as being smart because of their race. Racial nerds is one term that could be given. Most Asian Americans are victim to the prevailing stereotype that they are at the top of their fields in all aspects of life. In school, they are supposedly most proficient at math and science which are the top subjects in need of strong minds today.
Student Ethics On Cheating High School and Colleges all around the United States have seen a dramatic increase of cheating and dishonesty from the students. The reasoning behind the recent outburst of dishonesty in the classroom are still unclear, but with recent research on this activity, many people have pointed fingers to these three things: relieving stress, easier, or even just pure laziness. Many students even have the audacity to use the internet as a free source of plagiarism. Wei Gu tries to explain the reason of cheating in academic lifestyles in the article “Cheating in School: What We Know and What We Can Do” by illustrating the main causes she believes are the in school environments. She goes on to say “[Student] cheat to get a better grade, of course!” (Gu 2).
The school placed a label on him from a small amount of information, just like most schools do today when they label nerds, band geeks, jocks, and popular girls. Other characters such as Cameron, Michael, and Mandella are also placed into undesirable groups, despite their good hearted personalities. The iconic scene where Michael introduces Cameron to the cliques at school is also a crucial example. Stereotypes are a social epidemic that needs to be addressed, but most likely won’t be. Everyone belongs somewhere in society, but there is more overlap and diversity in people compared to what most teenagers see in others.
However, bullying still is a huge problem for schools all around, and it’s still needing to be addressed to this day. Laws and rules are still good to have, but kids also learn from watching. Watching their parents, and teachers, they watch every move, and they learn from it. If they see a teacher mistreating a student who is different in some way, then others will mistreat them as well. Everyone says our actions speak louder than words, and that is true.
It highlights the fact that most of the pain kids have are caused by other kids. That because we are told that “kids can be cruel?” we are oversimplifying the idea of bullying. That the mean harsh words that are thrown and shot at us is just a part of growing up. But it also talks about how what you are told as a kid can lead to depression, addiction, suicide because we live in the world were we try to hide the real issue by degrading it from it 's true power and impact it has on us. Like in the real world right now in the U.S there are many people that are underestimating the issue of gun violence.
SPHE promotes a positive environment in the classroom; however sometimes trying to achieve this can prove more difficult than anything. Bullying is a major problem in primary schools and is a form of discrimination as it usually targets someone who is physically or mentally weaker in an attempt to exclude them. Sometimes it can be the result of an act of jealousy and the bully reacts violently or angrily towards the other person. A lot of bullying these days is in relation to gender bias, with people being called ‘gay’, or ‘tranny’, and a lot of the time the children who call people these names don’t even understand the words themselves. O’Neill and Dinh report that ‘Almost a quarter (23%) of 9-16
