“Bully Proof Classroom: Confidential” shows those kids stories who could not come to class and because of that, they either failed a grade or their marks were not very high. That is the side of bullying that we do not usually. We do not get to see the survivors trying to get back to normal. We do not usually get to see their life during the process of putting it back together. We do not usually see how the victims education is impacted by bullying.
“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
This is important because it shows that the homework can be the cause of the end of one’s education. This also important because then teachers can see why some students just do not try anymore. In addition, one can see this when “They refuse to do homework and it’s lowering their grades” (LAXdoubleK). This shows that students do not even care about their grades because the homework is too much. If students already don't do the work or get that education that they should be going to school for they might just drop out, there's no point to being there in the first place.
They are not Tiger Moms, but ordinary parents who simply want the best for their children. These parents start out with the full intention of supporting the teachers and their children’s schools. Yet, something goes wrong along the way as they and their children fall into a homework trap. The problem starts in elementary school. The notes come home, and the parents get “the call.” They meet with the teacher and make plans to make sure everyone is on the same page.
I don’t know about them. What I think is they don’t get support from their parents because they ended up having bad grades in the school so they are scared that their kids might waste their money and ended up dropping the college. About school, I totally disagree with them who said they get more opportunities. I might be wrong and they might be right, but I am talking about my experience. I have changed a lot of schools due to my parent’s job.
Schools are still cutting out electives and still can’t afford some of the basic things that students should have in their learning environment. Lynda Barry in her article The Sanctuary of School talks about how for some kids their school is their safe haven. She shows how valuable extracurricular activities and after school programs are when she says,” Before and after school programs are cut and we are told that public school are not made for baby-sitting children. If parents are neglectful temporarily or permanently, for whatever reason, it’s certainly sad, but their unlucky children must fend for themselves. (Barry 724-725) There are children in our communities that depend on the school to keep them safe and to offer protection when their parents are unable to do that but the schools are
The Main argument the author makes is that both teachers and parents are not taking action. The teachers seem to feel sorry for their students and end up passing them, instead of using tools of negative reinforcement such as failure to determine whether the student should graduate. The parents are not supporting the teachers and may end up doing the work for their kids. The one contradiction I see is on the tenth paragraph where she talks about the students she sees at night living a hard life of unemployment, chemical dependencies, abusive relationships
I agree with her because we aren’t all perfect and sometimes we need that extra lesson or we need to repeat the material again. In middle school some of my friends were afraid of flunking the grade because they didn’t want to repeat the grade and of embarrassment. I believe that make them repeat
It could mean the difference between having a low self of esteem and confidence and being able to manage anything the world might throw at them. During my eleven-and-a-half years in school, I have heard classmates and friends say that they dislike school and how some of the lessons taught is not going to help them life; they had an uncaring attitude. I always had a hard time understanding why they would say, why did not care, or want to take advantage of the education they are receiving. I do not want the students in my community to have the same mindset as my friends and classmates. Instead, my desire for them is to be grateful and thankful for their learning, to develop a mindset of appreciation for their
Technically, teachers are not evaluated on how good students perform on these tests, but feel as if they are held responsible when students fail. They would rather guide their students to work diligently and master the test information, instead they spend valuable time preparing students for these test. Teachers are there to teach students and help them enjoy their time spent at school. Instead students are bored by teachers and are growing to hate them. Most teachers leave schools because of the way they are treated by their students.
