When they get to school, they see that there are fourty students, while the classroom designed for twenty. Many of them have no books and notebooks. In some cases parents think that education is not the real key to exit from working-class into upper. So as following, impoverished people do not value education Other thing is psychological part for working-class children. Lack of cultural experience, like attending restaurants, theatres etc.
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
Boo frequently highlights this issue in her book providing numerous examples. Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85).
But because the way they use their words was so different from the "Chinese version" of the English I have listened to all these years, it took me a longer time to understand what my English teacher says. Think back to those years, I am shocked by my different reaction towards the two situations, I never thought I would ever look at people in a stereotypically way based on their language ability. With realizing it, many of us would think less of non-Chinese speakers, but does that mean I actually learned less from my Chinese teacher? Of course not, in the end I learned the same from both teachers. As a matter of fact, I learned a bit more from my Chinese teacher because she knew the language nuances from being exposed to two different
Maycomb’s education system is depicted as a failure throughout chapters 2 and 3. Lee’s description of the student’s poor learning attitudes, the teacher’s unskillful teaching methods, all highlights the failure of Maycomb’s education system. Lee depicts the failure of the Maycomb education system through the description of elderly students in Scout’s first grade class. When the class was questioned about their knowledge on alphabets, Scout explained by saying “Everybody did; most of the first grade had failed it last year.” The adjective “failed” depicts that the students did not learn much in Maycomb and was unable to take in knowledge under the Maycomb education system. Not being able to take in knowledge, students are unable to pass through
Towards the end of their father’s life Kambini and Jaja used the silence their father taught them, as a weapon against him. Silence is also used as a type of violence. In the novel Kambili is in a very difficult situation and she has no freedom. In the house she had no voice to speak her mind. At school she is seen as a backyard snob, and she does not have any friends there.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
I am also worried about finals week and just college tests in general, I know that the classes will be harder than they were in high school and I was never the best at taking tests and I get really bad anxiety when taking tests so that does really worry me. I was never really good at taking notes so I have had to learn to become a good note taker, so far it has been good. Studying for my college exams also worries me because I was never that good at studying and I am a
Thirdly, in Everything I Never Told You, the Lee kids, and particularly Lydia, were not as popular as the other kids, they were not invited to go out on the weekends, they never to birthday parties, and they were not the recipients of after school phone calls to chat about the drama that happened at school that day. During lunch, “Lydia sits silent while others chatter,” because they are not really her friends (Ng, 15). Hurt by the fact that no one will be friends with her due to the fact that she is a different race, Lydia “sits for hours on the window seat on the landing” pretending she is on the phone with friends when, in reality, she is “rattling off assignments” to herself with no one on the other end of the call (Ng, 15-16). The malefactors of these discriminatory and xenophobic acts, whether they were
Every time the sun set, I began to feel ‘sick’ which was a way for me being unable to escape. This is what slowly started to allow other problems to arise. The lack of sleep did not help me function properly. My relationship with my family started to take strain; my mom and dad were getting fed up; I kept them up at night and when they went out they could never enjoy themselves with the thirty phone calls from me. Each morning at school I would run after my mom and spend every morning in the counsellor’s office.
She didn’t know what to do. “And I suddenly had such a vivid flashback that I completely lost my train of thought.” She talked about a childhood experience with her brother Matt. I think she was trying to get the student into learning, but that got the student feel boring instead. The entire lesson, she couldn’t build connections with her students. At the end of the class, she saw her students were yawning and sleeping.
I was upset with the lack of assist from my counselor at a time of need. Not only that the lack of compassion but giving me bad advice. I know GCU is about ensuring their students are successful with their classes and yesterday didn’t seem like so. I’m very upset but still managing to keep a float in my classes but I can’t get pass that my counselor who
Lack of parenting is the reason kids are being stereotyped and shunned on for their race. Parents don’t know how to properly teach their kids right from wrong, which is causing such discrimination and stereotypes. During the movie, we can see that before Mr. Clark had even left the school it was a pretty decent school, nothing too bad about it. Yes, of course it had a few bad people but no school is filled with amazing people. There was a great deal of balance in this school.
It didn’t come out from the tree. I didn’t get that money tree that was planted in my yard because it was already dead.” During high school, Michelle didn’t pay very good attention during school. She states that it was the biggest mistake that everyone makes. “There’s a reason for you to go to school, not only for you to learn everything, but it gives you life lessons.” She calmly states. “ Everything you go through might be the happiest time, the baddest time, the homework that you forgot to do or didn’t do because you wanted to do something else,” she chuckled.
I interned with the same kids I had worked with as a teacher, but could not work with as an OT, due to lack of training. I mainly learned and observed and took notes, instead. I found it somewhat difficult because I noticed that the OT did not cater to each child’s abilities. I had worked with the children for 8 hours a day as their previous teacher, instead of working with them for only 1 – 2 hours a day, as the OT did. Therefore, I knew the children’s weaknesses and strengths and what they should have been working harder or less
