There are various ways to deal with the racial dispute at classroom. Stereotypes play an important role in prejudice. The tendency to think about others in terms of their membership in various groups ar categories appears to be a key factor in the occurance and persistance of prejudicial behaviour. It is vital for a teacher to have a proper understanding and knowledge regarding the children and their behaviour in order to shape them as good citizens of the society. The main cause of racial discrimination towards a child in a classroom is may be due to the fact that the worlds of those children are distinct and they rarely intersect.
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).
Poor adjustment in children may partly be due to high conflict and other problems in the family before the separation. Children who blame themselves for their parents’ fighting have also been found to be at greater risk of poor social and emotional adjustment following their parents’ separation.” Parents’ separation will not only give a negative result but it also gives a positive result. Further information about the positive and negative outcomes of parent separation will be explained as we continue to elaborate the effects of parental separation. The article explains that the things the children see affects their emotion, that leads to a bad/poor character. Making children feel that they are the reason for the break up without explaining to them how things go risks a child’s inner
In addition to this, the children also typically downplay or shrug off the bullying and hardships caused from being different during their early years (Clarke, V. & Demetriou, E. 2016). Another problem faced by alternative families, which especially impacted the gay community, was the outbreak of AIDS. AIDS has affected the gay community and their relationships and friendships on every level (Patterson, C. J. 1994). Yet another key predicament in alternative families is the custody arrangements, which often can cause parents to be dissatisfied (Wyers, N. L. 1987).
Parents’ Perception on Gender Spectrum. In a society that is negatively rich with gender stereotypes and biases, children regularly resort in adopting gender roles which are not always fair to both sexes. Children who are exposed to both internal and external factors shapes their attitudes and behaviors towards traditional gender roles as they move through stages of adolescence and ultimately in adulthood. Witt (1997) argued that these attitudes and behaviors are learned at firstly at home which are then heightened by the child 's peers, school experience, and television viewing and other external factors after social bonds are formed outside a family setting. However, it is primarily the family setting that stongly influences the child’s gender
There are social structures and institutions in place that make it difficult to do gender in a way that is against the status quo, especially in the early stages of life and at school. These barriers are evident from even before children are born, for example there is so much emphasis placed on the arrival of a boy or girl which is often celebrated by ‘sex reveal parties’ with pink decorations, clothing and toys for girls and blue for boys. Western society is obsessed with distinguishing girls from boys and ensuring that these boundaries are not crossed throughout childhood. These assumptions are learned and internalised by children who then perform these gender stereotypes. This is related to how children see themselves and move their bodies.
In the job that I am currently at, children who often refused to follow or adapt to the school 's rules, have a high propensity to engage in risk-taking activities and behaviors. I believe that until this day, schools are not developed to create safe spaces for those it has oppressed, instead, it focuses on educating a certain type of student, one which follows gender and social norms. There are many individuals that live in fear of showing true identity to the world because they simply fear that society won’t accept
However, in educational institutions, this definition is amended to include the phrase “that interferes with the right to receive an equal educational opportunity”. It is important to safeguard the lives of these children, since sexual harassment can have serious life changing implications. “The issue of sexual harassment has become a big thing and is being taken seriously by the management in schools and workplaces.” (Daily Nation Online, 2014) It can scar a child for life. “According to the American
This idea has created stereotypes in New Zealand, in which the stereotypes are contradictory. REI can be developed in schools because adolescents are seeing what society thinks about their identity. Data as shown how exposure to this negative “social mirror” affects academic engagement (Webber et al., 2013). The students who are indigenous or a minority will not be engaged and receiving a good education. This issue is significant in New Zealand because Pākehā, Māori, Samoan and Chinese adolescents face challenges based on their REI.
For example, some people said that sex education could be inappropriate for youngsters. Babychild.org.uk co-founder Andy Barr said, 'I am not surprised by the results of the study, with the majority of parents against the idea of sex education in a school environment’ (Andy Barr, n.d). Many think teaching the sex education are the parent’s responsibility, not the school. This sex education is the sensitive subject so that parents must have their way to approach their kids and control what they want their child to know at the very young age (Babychild.org, n.d). When teenagers are exposed by learning new knowledge like sex education, they will be more curious and start to ask more about it, like ask about sexuality and sex.
