However, DSS failed to give more support due to their own financial constraint and increased workload due to cutbacks in the
The system must be changed to focus on each student and allow students the opportunity to discover their inner genius. Patience is essential. The child should be respected. Teachers must keep the child’s “naturel” (para.2). Allow them to see what they are capable of.
Many believe that volunteering should be by the students choice and they should not be forced into mandatory volunteering. Mandatory volunteering still has many benefits in the students’ lives as well in their academic ability. The way education should word is that the student learns the material in the classroom and then applies the skills someway in that field. This would help the students to learn more about the field they may be entering by being able to experience the career before pursuing it. Peter R. Sawyer said “We do know that any skills learned in the classroom and not readily applied to the real world will not persist.
This way, teachers aides can properly assist in self learning rather than doing their work for them. A properly trained teacher’s aid has a passion for kids and making a difference, which is as important as the academic qualifications, if not more.

But, at the same time I disagree because I think most should attend school not just for their grades and their parents, but also for themselves. Just knowing what is going on around you gets you feeling
Despite being pushed towards this learning process, the two students expressed their opposition to it. Each has their own thoughts of how material should be absorbed.

Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population.
