These forms of discrimination are still common within school systems, and continue to affect the lives of many students(Expereiences of racism). We will attempt to critically examine the forms of racism and classism experienced in the classrooms today, and seek out a solution to lessening these forms of injustices in school communities.

Every child is entitled to an education in a safe and secure environment, which is free from frequent disruptions. When Jimmy displays challenging behaviour and disrupts the class often, tension will build up in class. They could resent Jimmy for his behaviour and thus lead him to be more isolated and without any friends.
To stop this ruthless wrongdoing to individual, they must be punished. It is very important to punish bullies especially in school because bullying is an unacceptable anti-social behavior that can affect students’ academic and social outcomes, it can cause the victims emotional and psychological trauma, and a possibility to a serious violence or crime. Students’ who bullies co-students must be punished by eliminating them out of school temporarily and give them a year to change, so that way they will realize that bullying is not a game to play. According to this article, whoever made a crime and torture Phoebe’s mind must be charged and they must be punished temporarily, so
In response to bullying in schools, the approach mainly focuses on undesired behaviors and apply sanctions. However, this often fails, so an alternative approach is to inquire into the motivations of those who bully and identify the desires that bullying behavior seeks to satisfy. Ken Rigby points out that “In a series of 17 case studies, which focused on students between the ages of 8 and 16 years, it was reported that some of them manifested considerable hostility towards their victim whom they regard as having provoked their aggressive behavior, whilst some others revealed that they had been merely ‘going along with the crowd’ not to miss the fun, or occasionally because it seemed the safest thing to do” (Rigby, 2012). Thus, the desire to
It is defined as any written, verbal, or physical act or electronic communication that is intended or that a reasonable person would know is likely to harm one or more students either directly or indirectly by: substantially interfering with educational opportunities, affecting participation in programs or activities by placing the student in reasonable fear of physical harm or emotional distress, having an actual or substantial detrimental effect on a student’s physical or mental health, or causing substantial disruption with the orderly operation of the school. (Dearborn Public Schools, 2012) Typically, 12-18% of a school population has students that are bullied, made fun of, or teased. Nowadays, bullying is not always face-to-face. With technology on the rise there is a new problem, cyber bullying. These bullies can hide behind a computer, which helps them feel more anonymous.
Censorship places limitations on the knowledge and creativity of citizens. It is evident that censorship is widely common in school. Some books are banned from school libraries due to content, while others are banned from being read in English classes. "Censorship is particularly harmful in the schools because it prevents students with inquiring minds from exploring the world, seeking truth and reason, and stretching their intellectual capacities, and becoming
Stereotyping affects academics and performance in schools and it is an epidemic that needs to be controlled as they can greatly impact students either for the better or worse. Props to those who choose to ignore what people say and brush it off as a joke but for many it does hurt hearing and having to deal with stereotypes in current times. Stereotypes exist in the names people are given (eg. Muhammad = Muslim). They also exist in Fairy Tales and are teaching children that males are a gender that is required to lift the opposing gender (women) up from inconvenient situations.
Bullying Can Be Prevented Bullying is a form of violence to pick on victims because they are different from their bullies, have insecurity/jealousy or home problems.

It is important that this behavior should be prevented or it will become worse. Bullying is one of the main issues public and private schools have to face on a day-to-day basis. When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally.
Moreover, it can even affect the entire school population and create an environment of fear which may disrupt academic learning (Whitted & Dupper, 2005). Victims can be upset, afraid, ashamed and embarrassed about going to school. The signs may not be visible if the adolescent can manage the aftermath of bullying.

Some schools are even being sued due to online harassment and bullying. Currently schools are forced to improve and create policies on bullying due to so many different occurrences. Madera High School does not have a significant issue with face to face or online harassment/bullying but it is still an issue. Students attending Madera High have admitted to being a part of online harassment: either contributing to the problem or being the victim of such.
