A lot of teens feel like they are isolated from people in school because they fear either that they don't fit in or their classmates don't like them for some reason. They can use the book as something to help them get through things they are going through. Getting told how their lives are going to be planned out for them is a big struggle for some young adults Equality goes through the same thing. “We see that it has ever been thus and that is has brought us step by step to our last” (Rand 20). This quote is basically saying that their life completely planned for them.
But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues. If they have failing grades as well, the colleges are sending their students into the world without a real chance at becoming professional athletes, and without an actual education. In the end, they will be left unprepared for life. My first reason I believe athletes with bad grades shouldn’t play sports
Senior year. Even looking back now at that very shy, awkward, not knowing how to keep a conversation going, and always feeling nervous girl I never thought that I would outgrow my shell as cliche as that sounds. I used to think everyone at high school was constantly staring at you always judging every little thing you did, but now I've realized that people are caught up in their own worlds to not even notice. People don't care about the clothes you wear, what your hair looked like, or what kind of advanced classes you're taking, I've realized that what people really care about is the person you portray and what kind of people you hang around. Freshman year I was just following the crowd I just wanted to be in a group with the "popular kids"
Even though relaxation is one of the hardest things to find, it is not impossible. People in the world today are all worried or afraid about something it does not allow them to be relaxed. People are afraid of not being able to make enough money to provide for their family and pay bills. Students in high school are worried about getting good grades and trying to figure out what they are going to do after high school. Worrying about these things and many others is what makes it so hard for people to ever feel a slight bit relaxed.
How many times has a student complained to you about stress? If you are one or a teacher at a highschool then you probably hear that every day multiple times a day. Are they just being dramatic, lazy, or just saying it to get a reaction? I think not, there are many studies being done about how highschool students are actually stressed and how it leads to other health problems and highschool student actually are pretty busy. Many parents, teachers, and other adults say that us student are being lazy, or dramatic that we really don’t have that much to do, they could be wrong in some cases, there’s alot more to us students than a teacher or parent can see.
Many students come home with red marks on their arms, legs, and necks from students who think that they can use name tags as weapons. I should know. I am a victim. Many of the students who disliked the idea of the name tags were in 8th and 7th grade. These students have been in Simle longer than the 6th graders so are used to not having name tags around their neck.
Growing up I was the only student of Indian descent in my grade level until the 8th grade. It was due to this I was viciously bullied and assaulted growing up. The bullying negatively mentally and emotionally affected me and it was due to this bullying I had fallen into a bad group of "friends" during my sophomore year. These "friends" kept the bullies at bay and I started to accept them. One day they had convinced and pressured me to shoplift, or face being hurt, two packs of cards, which I unwisely did because I did not want to return to being bullied and feared being hurt.
Would you rather spend your high school days being forced to play a competitive sport to graduate or focus on your education instead? Seventy-two percent of teenagers say they rather just focus on passing school than worrying about playing a sport on top of everything else. Some people aren 't capable of having to go play a game till eight at night then waking up the next morning, and having to study for a test the next day. We should not be forced to participate in tasks we are not talented in. Not everyone is competitive, we aren 't all athletic, and we all have different talents.
Have you ever been bullied before? Most people say it is not a problem, but you might not agree. I think everybody tries to ignore the fact that bullying happens right in your school. I think that if teens knew about the 4 Way Test it would not happen. I believe that as a school it is our job to get the word out about the 4 Way Test.
In my mind brief yet tremendous thoughts with meanings were popping in my head. Not having to take anymore modified test, not being restricted to certain classes, not having to go into a special education classroom after school, and most importantly not being read too by a teacher on test like a child. However, the negative thoughts were also filling in my head as well. The most terrifying thought was if the man thought that I needed to be in the special education program in high school. Taking special education in high school would have been a big downbreak on me.
