Continuation school students are seen to be the “ bad kids “ that dont belong with regular students at a normal school. The bad kids who don't care about education or any rules that are implemented in their school system. Another stereotype super passing bad kids is that only expellies and kids that get suspended multiple times attend continuation schools. Garrett-Hatfield then explains who also attends alternative schools’ “Many states have alternative schools, sometimes called "continuation schools," for children who have been suspended long term or expelled from their mainstream public schools.” This stereotype has been also circulating the reputation of students that attend these schools. When a student is expelled from their local public school they are usually sent to the community school which is were most troubled kids attend.
In Grant Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod states his belief that we seemingly “hate” the brightest kids in school partially because of some of the most “noted dropouts” in today’s society. Additionally, Penrod claims that the perceived hatred of intelligence in a high school setting is causing actual emotional harm to the children who are labeled as the “nerds” or “geeks”- thus, the classic “smart kids.” If entering just about any of the several thousand high schools around the country, they will hear choruses of “Did you actually study?’, “Why would you even bother studying- the game was on last night”, “Of course I didn’t study; I had football practice” or dozens of similar taunting phrases can be heard constantly
All students want in school is to get good grades and sometimes they will get desperate and being desperate leads to cheating. When students cheat all they think about is getting a good grade most of the time. Other students don’t care about school and they cheat. This can affect not only the student his/her self if they get caught but it can affect the class and how other students learn, because if one student sends out a test or homework than other students will have it and then pretty soon most students will have it and not have learned anything. There’s is no conclusion to cheating, because no matter what, students will cheat weather they know if it 's right or wrong.
“Cheating is an improper action that is never allowed in school”, might be a phrase you hear your teacher say right before you take a final exam. Sometimes you might be irritated when your teacher catches a student cheating during an assignment and starts yelling at him for a good 20 minutes. Despite that, maybe you are curious in the reason why that student would cheat. Many students all around America cheat while taking tests for a variety of different reasons. The biggest reason why students cheat in school is because they are pressured by their guardians to do well.
When in the course of human events, adolescents have different mindsets that acquire different types of interest. Many students in high school have different interests like sports, science, math, engineering, or performing arts. In school, there has been major problems because if students have different interests, it creates stereotypes. This implies to teachers and staff to end this problem, because in this case it can evolve to bullying and tormenting others. I should declare this because this because many people have gotten hurt and being intimidated, and have less chance of being communal.
Social Loafing- I think that social loafing happens a lot in high school and college in group projects. Maybe not as much in college as in high school because people know that they need to help achieve a grade or goal. I have seen, when I was in high school, that others did not want to help get the goal that everyone was working towards. I especially see this in the boys in high school I think that most boys think they can just slide by without doing as much work when in a group setting. I personally did not let this happen in my group projects but I know girls that did because they were interested in the boy or wanted to make a good impression.
According to a survey, 88% of students at a school believe that failure on an assignment is a reasonable punishment for the violation of the honor code (Source E). Even students believe that violations of the honor code are so bad that they should result in failure. Threatening to fail students on an assignment holds back the urge to cheat. Students have a great fear of being caught because of the strict consequences that come with violating the honor code (Source F). With the fear of punishment suppressing any urge to cheat, commitment to the honor code becomes more and more prevalent.
There is also a problem when it comes to a student reporting that they were sexually assaulted in a school. There are set rules in High School that require teachers to report sexual assaults statistics, but many feel unprepared on how to deal with the problem after reporting it. Without having proper plans and precautions placed
Most schools have some form of variation among these groups. However, the most prominent division in recent years has been between the Advanced Placement students and students taking regular courses. It is assumed that students not taking AP courses tend to be uninvolved in school activities, have lower test scores, and have unhealthy friendships. Society has influenced high school to be a competitive and sometimes a hostile environment. There is always a person trying to one up another person, whether it be academically, socially, or physically.
In addition the student athlete population also faces stereotyping from their peers and faculty teachers. The stereotyping of student athletes also affects the academics because the belief that if a student is also an athlete they are automatically assumed to be “lazy and dumb” (Stone, Harrison &Mottley, 2012). However according to Fletcher et al. (2003), even if this stereotype fits some athletes, many of them take their academic studies very
There are many different factors that can lead to student to the fringe. Bullying is a huge influence on schools and the students within those schools. Most students that hit their breaking point in school are kids that just do not fit in or feel like they are not accepted by others. The transition into high school can be a big change from lower grades and also at high school age other students seem to be more critical toward their peers. As is to being bullied there are is a different side and that is what drives a person to
Banning books would deprive children of a real education about the world. If children don 't know about the world and what other people say and think or what others ' cultures and beliefs are how could they possibly grow to be informed, intelligent, and well-rounded individuals? True, some texts may promote damaging lifestyles to young minds, but again parents and teachers are more than capable of teaching their children what is right and not allowing their children to be exposed to harmful content with age restrictions. You can always teach your kids to be smart and make right choices. If they grow up believing certain things because they only have one narrow perspective, how will they be able to learn who they truly are as a person or what they really believe as a person?
