The literature review clearly has shown that there is a phenomenon called School to Prison, Schoolhouse to Jailhouse, or Public Education to Prison Pipeline. Therefore, Jeremy Thompson (2016) says, “Zero-tolerance policies in schools result in high suspension rates and expulsion rates among students in general, but disproportionately affect minority students, especially African-Americans because students who have been suspended or expelled are more likely than not to end up in the Criminal Justice
The results showed that when no oral feedback was given from the learner, all participants gave a shock of 450V. When the learner screamed or gave feedback, only 65% went to 450V. Milgram argued that the ‘teachers’ acted in this manner because they were told so by an authority figure (Milgram, 1963). Aspects of the participant’s behaviour can be explained by Milgram’s Agency theory (Milgram, 1974). This theory states that there are two types of behaviour people express when they are put into social situations; the autonomous state and the agentic state.
Mike Rose details the faults of the education system in a piece concerning his own personal experiences. His high school education was radically changed when his school swapped his test scores with the scores of a student with the same last name. The system depended upon test scores to determine the path of classes that individual students must take, and due to the weak performance reflected in Mike Rose’s alleged scores, he was placed on the vocational path. Unfortunately, the vocational path was implied to be the lowest tier of classes in the school - so despite Rose’s natural intelligence, he was placed within remedial classes due to the IQ within his file. Rose experienced the self-deprecating cycle of decelerated classes, with frustration
Furthermore, in such conditions, long periods of time are spent on disciplinary matters (Bickel & Qualls, 1980; Wu et al., 1982). The important indicator of school academic achievement is also negatively associated with implementation of zero-tolerance policy after accounting for socioeconomic status (Raffaele-Mendez, 2003; Skiba & Rausch, 2006). A third and important cons for using of zero-tolerance policy is the positive association that was observed between school suspension and higher future rates of misbehavior among those students who are suspended (Bowditch, 1993; Costenbader & Markson, 1998),
You compare the differences in the samples to see if they are the same or statistically different while still accounting for sampling error. For example, a teacher might have data on student performance in non-assessed tutorial exercises as well as their final grading. The teacher is interested in knowing if tutorial performance is related to final grade. ANOVA allows breaking up the group according to the grade and then knowing if performance is different across these grades. Types of ANOVA These days, researchers are using ANOVA in many ways.
In the same study they have proved that there seems to be no difference in false memories for positive items between healthy and depressed individuals. Also, they found no difference in responses between depressed patients and healthy controls regarding positive, negative and neutral word lists in DRM. Hence, in this experiment MCM bias does not seem to be present. Last but not least, even though there were no differences in recalling words of positive, negative and neutral words, depressed participants appear to falsely remember the critical lures (Yeh & Hua,
(2016) indicate that the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 provided incentives for schools to eliminate specific students so that the school’s standardized test score results will improve. According to Thompson (2016) unintended consequences rose out of federal incentives for students to do well on test scores since the federal bench marks needed to be met to receive funding. When schools use the zero-tolerance policy as a way to eliminate lower scores, minority girls are affected by these
Although standardized testing has its cons, it also has pros. For example, Two important things Standardized testing provides is the ability to see students weak areas and progress. Although having the ability to see students weak areas may sound like a good thing, it really isn’t. The ability to see weak areas is moreso a benefit to educators when teaching students so they know what to help students with and fix so students can improve in these areas. But, teachers don’t really help students one on one rather as one big group of up to 30+ students at times.
Within these tests, they measures students skills and problem-solving ability. A feature on these tests is the multiple choice which is graded by machines. Therefore, it does not subject to human subjectivity or bias (“Standardized Tests” 1). These tests do not only prove to be a way to measure a student’s ability without bias, but a way to ensure teachers are meeting the standards and needs for the students. An issue surfaced when Kath M. Newman, an associate professor of English at Carnegie Mellon University, stated that she was angry at her son about a test.
The study has two phases which was done to examine the effect of gender stereotypes on student's recollection of their school marks in stereotypically feminine and masculine domains (example arts and mathematics respectively). The results showed that , more students believed in gender stereotypes prior to recall, they biased their reported marks, compared to their actual marks, in a stereotype-consistent way i.e female students underestimated their marks in mathematics and male students underestimated their marks in arts. In study 2,the salience of gender stereotypes was manipulated prior to recall, yielded similar findings. The recall of school marks was more stereotype-consistent in a condition of high salience than in a condition of low salience of gender stereotypes. The theoretical implications of these results are
Lanza during this class period was the modeling method. That is, since the classes were preparing for the PARCC exam, Mrs. Lanza had her students complete PCRs and then graded them as a group according to PARCC standards. This allowed students to see just how grades are determined for PCRs and why they are given the grades they receive, and encouraged students to think like a PARCC test grader. As a result of this teaching by modeling, students were able to see both good and bad responses and why they are considered as such. This allowed students to walk out of class having a better idea of how they will be graded on the PARCC and how they can work to specifically improve their writing
Our teacher knew how to keep us calm which is what they should be educated on how to do. The man who was a threat to our school was in the elementary portion of our school the entire time, but no one knew this during the lockdown. He had a hit list in mind and it was mostly made up of school staff. Although no one was at all injured in this
