All of the kids and their parents are nervous for the drawings to see if they are accepted. After the results, only two of the five kids in the film are accepted. Anthony, one of the two kids, was not accepted at first, but was put on a waiting list to fill any new opening spots. Luckily, enough spots were open for Anthony to be accepted. For the other three kids, they had to continue going to public schools where their future academic education is not promised to them.

My fourth through fifth grade I went to the same elementary school and was the best for me. It was the best because I been knowing the same people since preschool and had classes with the people I knew. But as the fourth grade came along I was separated with the people I knew in preschool and been friends ever since. I was very upset. In my fourth grade classes it was like getting to know the people that I went to preschool with and didn’t know them at all.
Imagine sitting in math class, and just not being able to pay attention. The teacher is talking about something that will be very important, yet focusing still seems utterly impossible. You feel hungry and longing for something interesting, but you aren’t allowed to have the one thing that can help your situation; a piece of gum. Unfortunately, many schools don’t allow chewing gum on school property. Focus decreases and grades become lower as a result of gum’s absence, and many students lack gum’s dental benefits.
My educational goal is to pursue my passion of woodworking. From a very young age I dreamt of owning my own business. I 've always dreamt of going to college, and majoring in mathematics and business to be one step closer to my goal. I knew from a very young age that my dreams of going to college would be slim, because my mother, as a single parent worked to keep my brother and I content. It was difficult for her because, she was involved in an accident, that the doctors said she would never walk again.
They were to live at the Home of Infants until they were of age five. After living at the House of Infants for five years, they were then sent to the Home of the Students. Here, each person would complete ten years of learning and then be sent straight to work. In the years in the Home of the Students, Equality 7-2521 thought of the lessons to be too easy. This was considered a great sin because it was not good to be different from their brothers.
Probably for the best he is pretty weird. The mental effects that settle into the minds of young people that are popular or not can be devastating. Melinda Sordino, the rape victim and protagonist in Laurie Halse Anderson’s book Speak, is not very popular. She barely has any friends and doesn’t trust many people in the school. Melinda does not try to become popular but instead uses her time to avoid teachers and ex-friends.
Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers. I was the only kid who looks different in my class and has no ideas what the teacher is talking about. It was uncomfortable for me to be around my classmates, but everyone in the class seems to be nice to me because I was the new kid. They didn’t have problems with me and I didn’t have problems with them. As time goes on, I began to feel
Tom Owenby, a teacher who spent 5 years teaching English and AP history classes said “It’s not about finding yourself… game for South Korean students” (Hu 1). There's always one student who gets quite literally everything. The best student awards, dance awards, anything someone could possibly think of, they get it. Teachers are constantly praising them rather than giving other students praise for even doing their own hard work making them feel pressured to do more. Lots of students feel way too pressured with the school work, like they have millions upon millions to do and they still have more.
Going from a one story school to a two story school was hard, having to look down every five seconds to make sure I was on the right hall, or if I was suppose to be upstairs or downstairs. Bumping into people while looking down and asking multiple people for direction even though I was shy. Giving five minutes after each class to get to the other, walking into a classroom on my first day people staring and observing. Moving to a different town is not about the new house, it is about adapting to a new environment. Moving away from family and friends can be a tough thing to do.
My personal Michigan hero is my seventh grade social studies teacher, Ms. Dokter. Though I am not a personal friend of hers, per say, she had a tremendous impact on my life. She made me laugh, told me that I could do whatever I put my mind to, and was an amazing educator. Seventh grade was tough for me at times. I was at a new school, and it seemed like everyone knew what they were doing except me.
First off, technology causes us to not stay on task and focused on the important things and what is right in front of us. Many times we (teenagers) say that we are going to do our homework or clean our rooms; but because of technology it becomes so difficult to just put down the cell phones, video games, laptops, etc. It seems like nowadays, kids are not even interested in
How can one day of kindergarten possibly impact the rest of my academic life? Growing up, I was an odd character. I loved nothing more than school and constantly ached to shove newly learned knowledge into my brain; so much so, that on holidays, weekends, or sick days, I would cry that I was missing out on my important education. I would not think about naps and playgrounds and fortunately for five year old me, my school started teaching us science and social studies and math early on. I would rush home with my book bag swinging, looking forward to the time spent on homework and review.
This trip specifically focuses on youth education and Native American issues. Essentially, my team members are helping out in the classrooms (TAing in a way) and also trying to be a role model for the students by pushing the importance of education and college. A lot of these kids only know this community and many of the elders and their parents do not have a college education, so they do not understand the importance of education. It is hard to see if we are making an impact in such a short amount of time, and I know my 15 other team members are incredibly sad to be leaving the schools. As soon as the kids saw us Monday morning, they were all over us in excitement!
