Higher test scores result in financial benefits for the school. The financial benefit does not eliminate the negative impact of standardized testing on students. Miner said, “Today, children are being flunked, denied access to a preferred program or school, or even refused a high school diploma on the basis of a single standardized test.” How are standardized test good for students if they give them all these negative limitations if a student doesn’t do well, if a student does terrible on a test, then will they get a chance to retake it? No, a student is only allowed to take the SAT one time, so it’s all or nothing when it comes to these tests. Now that I’ve described to you the basic arguments against standardized tests do you want students sitting in a room filling in millions of bubbles taking a test that is supposed to prove how smart you or when it really only proves how well you can take a standardized test or do you want to eliminate standardized testing and focus on truly educating our youth?
Not many people took into consideration what discrimination could do to people. I love the fact that she went out of her way to teach her students that discriminating actually hurt, and not just being a victim of it, but also being the one doing it. It could turn a sweet soul into a deviant one. It was also shocking how the students really did not know their attitudes changed until after they stepped back and observed. I believe that this experiment/ lesson should be taught more often, because there is still discrimination going on till this day.
3. Therefore, the most ideal course of action to escape destruction would be to stay peaceful and cooperate with the people around you. Hobbes’ argument for leaving the state of nature is flawed because people are nonviolent due to their own self-interest, not for the prosperity of others- which can easily lead to corruption and disunity. This flaw is damaging to Hobbes’ argument because not everybody is willing to give up their free will or follow the obligations of the social contract to protect the
The p-value for the total score t-test was 0.01179. This data shows the results were significant and did not happen by chance. In order to confirm our p-value as accurate, the t-statistic value was 2.65308 which met and exceeded the t-critical value of 2.02809. This solidifies the results as indicating a significant difference between the two sets of total scores data between the principal core students and the cohort students. The p-value for the number of correct answers was 0.09288.
A study on layperson confidence and accuracy in deception detection has suggested that overall, judgments of confessions as either true or false were only correct 48.9% of the time, 50% being chance level. Participants in this study were to some extent confident in their judgments even though they frequently had low accuracy
Kaci has epilepsy surgery because she is so paralyzed with half of her brain removed. Kaci parents should have allowed her to get the operation, so she can be herself again similar she used to be before she had the epilepsy. One reason Is that, Kaci wanted to have a happy and new life again. Another reason is that, she requirements her family to feel much happier that she had the surgery, so her parents wouldn’t consume to go through Kaci’s death.

Her education had been quite rigid, and she commented in Fundi that she did not see schools as places where one was necessarily "free to express an opinion," something she was very anxious to do” ( “Ella Josephine Baker” ). Ella thinks she has a more important role in the world than teaching. She wanted a place where children could speak freely about racism and discrimination without getting in trouble. Jem and Scout think people are judgemental because of race. “Jem and Scout believed that Tom Robinson would be acquitted, but he was found guilty by the all white jury” ( Magill and Kohler 6594 ).
Edna says she wants to do her own thing without being fettered by her children or the society that is saying that you can’t get divorced. Edna also states that her children are bringing her down and damning her soul; Edna thought about her being free and realized that it is just another fantasy and the one person who actually gave her pleasure was Robert and he had left her for the sake of herself. Edna had been getting frustrated with the idea of her not being satisfied and her not receiving the love that she wanted and the realization of her not getting love or independence she didn’t give love back. She did love her kids but she never really wanted to be in this grouping of a mom or a housewife essentially. Her overall point is that she wants to be free and actually get satisfaction from activities other than painting, she felt constricted with Leonce.
Stephanie as an adult tells herself that it is okay to be an outsider and that she shouldn’t have worried as much as she did. She says she regrets not knowing these things as a teenager. I know that it’s okay to be not in a group and to not have many friends because it all works out in the end and I know that. I try to be better and make more
Colorblindness, as defined by the American Psychologist Association, is a sign of being fair-minded and is a strategy designed to manage diversity by reducing racial differences (Neville, Awad, & Brooks, 2013). This ideology has been widely used in an attempt to eradicate the discomfort experienced by racial prejudice. However, by incorporating a colorblind curriculum into the education system, you send a message that we are “all alike” and that the uniqueness of a culture is irrelevant and unappreciated. Furthermore, the course of study will typically gravitate towards the dominant culture’s point of view. This will result in a lack of interest for minorities who recognize that their “color”, or race, is indeed evident and is an essential component of their identity.
