If students are involving themselves in illegal activities such as consuming drugs, and their parents are not stepping in, the schools need to fill the gap. By identifying students who use, school officials can not only help students move away from criminal activity, but provide help to those who may lack parental support and better ensure safety for all students on high school campuses. Successful intervention can help young users and addicts move away from illegal drug use and find a long term focus in life, including a bright
Likewise, the intimidation makes them feel uncomfortable in school
Personally, I think that residential schools were not justified. Being torn for from your family and forced into an abusive school system where you had no choice but to give up your culture and beliefs is simply not okay. To me, learning life skills such as how to read, write and operate farm machinery would not have been worth the trauma and mistreatment they received. Imagine what being forced away from your family, having to forget about your culture without a choice, and being put into an a cruel, abusive school system where you would have to live would be like. How could a somebody learn and be happy in such conditions?
He said students in gangs have adapted to the new dress code, blending in with the schools’ students populations. A third argument for uniforms and dress code is that they can help curb school violence associated with gang-identified clothing. President Clinton has often spoken about this. In his 1996 State of the Union Address, Clinton advocated uniforms to “make public schools more orderly centers of learning and safer sanctuaries for children.” A number of schools took his advice and implemented dress codes to stem gang recruitment and criminal activities.
If possible and schools listen, and teach students the negatives of cyber bullying, it would be great. The people who disagree with the facts have a weak argument, because 84% of the students will listen to the warning given to them. Angered people may argue, by telling the student the outcomes of the victim after cyber bullying may be traumatizing. But it would be better to inform the children earlier than later. If schools and teachers take note this could all be possible.
What would you do if a teacher gives you detention for being a different culture, would you speak out or do nothing? In the late 1968, schools would ostracize the Mexican-American history or Chicano history. The Chicano students were mostly heading towards tedious labor rather than going to college. The explanation is the teachers created an atmosphere that was hostile for students to learn because they were constantly underestimated by the teachers, counselors, and the school officials.
The author relates to when President George Bush tells students that an average of C can make them a president. This presents students with a wrong notion that they do not have to read for them to be successful. Politicians hence are providing wrong information to students which in turn affect them in the schooling which in turn leads to poor quality of education in public schools. Furthermore the wages which teachers receive for teaching in public school is small and this affects how they teach to students which in turn lead to poor quality of education offered to students in public
He was asked by students if he could help change their current educational situation. When he questioned officials about this he was told that it is due to the unstable economy. The views of privileged and wealthy do not believe that the funding would help the public school students' problem as if they are unaware of the fact that they spend a lot of money making sure their children get the best education in private schools. Kozol concluded by stating that the time has passed to be figuring out or making excuses as
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010).
This strategy within this campaign is very clear and to the point well enough for children of a young age with a smaller attention span. There is one weakness to the type of message strategy for this health campaign. Depending on where the course is taught within different school systems in the United States, there are different versions that emphasize vary resistance exercises and geographical cultural influences. This is a potential problem because the message that is trying to come across through the message strategy is altered away from what the message actual means to how it can be construed to fit a specific culture or geographical interest such as
In Should The Obama Generation Drop Out Charles Murray talks about the flaws found in the Obama education plan . He brings to the attention of the public the fact that many student in America graduate lacking the skills necessary for the proper college education. Murray goes on to argue that in today 's society students who graduate from High-school go on to technical college to pursue a vocational education in their field of study; whereas, older generations have pursued an all around education, enrolling in classes that were irrelevant to the career they were pursuing. Murray claims that if you test the vast majority of Americans (including himself) in the more rigorous subjects, they would most likely fail. Murray mentions that he does
The students in my school are not free from oppression because the community they live in tells them that they do not need a high school diploma to be successful and that college is definitely out of reach. In schools, Tatum (2013) expresses that the impact of racism begins at an early age and “we are exposed to misinformation about people different from ourselves” (p. 65). This information is often engrained in student’s heads and some students of color internalize these differences and begin to believe it to be true. It is my belief that this false sense of self is often created not only in society but also in schools and students begin to perform the way they are expected to
It is well known in America that gangs are problematic. The Federal Bureau of Investigations estimates there are approximately 1.4 million gang members in the United States which includes prison gangs, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and criminal street gangs. This statistic is probably grossly underestimated because of inconsistencies in reporting gangs and gang members from state to state. Even with those estimates, gangs are responsible for a large amount of crime in America. To avoid the growing street gang problem, we should focus our efforts on gang prevention at an early age.
