In this society, somehow, going outside gets you a trip to the psychiatrist and being a pedestrian gets you arrested which is a very evident example of censoring people away from noticing too much around them, hence, the idea that being different is wrong. (STEWE-2) When this idea is implemented, individuality starts to decline and more and more people turn out like the same. Beatty explains to Montag the time when there was a “boy in [his] own school class who was exceptionally ‘bright’, did most of the reciting and answering while the others sat like so many leaden idols, hating him]” and it was “this bright boy [who was] selected for beatings and tortures after hours” (Bradbury 55). The reason behind this is because the government wants the people to be the same and so by doing this, no one questions the authority and in the government’s eyes, everyone is living in a happy wonderland. (CS) In summation, the meme that is presented focuses on the idea of burning books and the argument of how being different is wrong–two concepts which are frequent in the
This trial troubles the main character, Scout, her brother Jem, and their friend Dill. This is because they know that the jury put Tom in jail for all the wrong reasons. In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee shows that exposure to prejudice can lead to a loss of innocence by writing the novel in Scout’s point of view.
It showing that parts of the judicial system are unjust. They put so much fear into the teens that they didn’t know what to do and were just saying anything to be with their family. By making a deal with the teens in exchange for a story I felt that was wrong because they are lying about what happened and they stores have different parts off the back I knew they were going to jail. Later on the right man who committed the crime confessed and the case was vacated against all five teens. They have every right to file for a settlement for what they went through it was unfair and they were granted a settlement for $42 million which they deserved.
These children would like the government to help families who have problems, get counselling for the bullies and the children who are the victims of bullying and to place patrol officers or guards in schools so that they may be able to curb this activity. All the children that participated in this research said that these bullies should be punished. For small one time acts, children say that bullies should be given detention, given warning letters, spoken to, given community service, be punished, have some of their favourite things taken away or given “licks”. For large continuous acts, bullies should be suspended or expelled, counselled or some children said that they should be treated the same way
Johnson states “ Cheating in school continues to be rampant, A substantial majority(60%) cheated on a test during the past year (35% did so two or more times) and one in three (33%) said they used the internet to plagiarize an assignment. Johnson saw these statistics as it is being a key point to start holding bans on technology and punishing e-cheating. The key factor that gets these educators all concerned is because the students do not learn at all, the way they get answers to homework, quizzes, and test is by looking at their cell phones.

I believe the biggest misconception I had about school shooters is their feelings, or what I assumed is a lack of. What I have learned about the feelings of school shooters is that there is typically a guiding factor or initial issue that festers in someone. Said issue causes this person or group of people to act out. From what I have observed, these students typically have the brightest futures yet remain the most misunderstood of all students. Most of these students who carry out shootings killing themselves in the end, giving them a lifetime worth of attention they were clearly seeking without any repercussions for their actions.

According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades. Their guardians or whoever they live with needs to help them be an educated person so that they could have a bright future.
Teaching the students self-control is important and takes time. Students will make mistakes but teaches need to make the mistake a learning tool by teaching the students a better way to conduct themselves. He writes “When we are unreasonable with students and humiliate them into submission, the benefit is really for the teacher and not the students”, this really hit home for me, I have seen that happen and the student shut down and he had a miserable rest of his year. We need to instill confidence in our students not talk poorly to them. Chapter Five-The Quiet Man (76-89) As I was reading this I was thinking that it was written just for me.
