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.
When she was seven years old she recalled not having a stable housing. Her mother worked and different family members would care for her siblings and her. When she was 8 year old a 19 year old cousin tried to sexually abuse her. She told her aunt but she did not believe her so did not say anything to her mother. When she was ten years old she experienced bullying in school due to her body shape.
My response essay will come from the essay who a girl was involved called Sandra Cisneros, the daughter of a Mexico-American mother and a Mexico father. A daughter whose father didn’t believe in whatever she did. No matter how Sandra tried her best to impress her father, Sandra’s father didn’t believe her because of the tradition that lasted for years that, girls can’t do stuff that will catch an eye from the society. Anna was not allowed to play with her brothers in public, and also, not only she wasn’t allowed to go to school, but also, she wasn’t allowed to expand her talent of drawing. It’s the same with my relatives from my mother’s side.
Personal attack shows an attack on the character of a person rather than his or her opinions or arguments. Ms. Campbell is the head of a department who also a teacher. She was totally looked down on the student in class 203 because many of them are on probation, can’t be relied on and are the lost cause’s. For example, when Mrs. Gruwell finds out a new book to let the student read but Ms. Campbell is not giving it to the student. Ms. Campbell thinks that the student reading scores are not so good and believe the book will be damaged by them.
Lastly the parents have no control over their kids. For example the text says “You know how difficult Peter is about that (shutting the nursery) when I punished him a month ago by locking it for even a few hours the tantrum he threw!” This shows that the parents have no limits for their kids and their kids barely get punnished. Another example is from the text “Kids and Tech” “ Their brains (kids brains) get used too much… stimulation and in absence of these… they get anxious, restless, bored, and aggressive. In relation to this in the text The Veldt it says when the parents turn off the nursery the kids get aggressive and worry. This means that the parents can 't say no to things their kids want because their kids will throw tantrums because they are not punished well.
Rape culture in the education environment and the workplace needs to stop. To start with, it is important to mention that every day, girls are being sent home by schools due to what they are wearing, therefore hindering their education. Schools are sexualizing female students’ bodies as if they are there to distract male students while in fact, “the standards that high schools, middle schools, and even elementary schools impose on girls— and rarely on boys — have gotten pretty out of hand.” Says Suzannah Weis, in the article: 5 Ways School Dress Codes Reinforce Rape Culture, Because Women Aren 't A "Distraction". These rules are teaching kids that if a woman doesn’t dress a certain way, they are asking for attention. According to them, it’s not the boys’ fault if they give unwanted attention.
Social norms and deviance are other sociological concepts observed in the film. Social norms are unwritten rules of behavior that one is expected to follow in specific situations. Cady has a difficult time adjusting to the social norms in the public school. As stated in the movie, “I had never lived in a world where adults didn’t trust me, “she says. For example, adults always yelled at her, and teachers told her not to read ahead or eat in the classroom.
Recently, more and more schools all over the country have turned to dress codes. Some people say that dress codes teach professionalism and protect students. However, schools should not have dress codes because dress codes target girls and limit their freedom of expression. They also are hard to enforce and students break them anyways. First, schools should not have dress codes because they target girls and limit freedom of expression.
At a young age it is hard to have your mind take control over your body. As a interview with a fellow friend i received this information (diseases and disorders). Before at school I’d have a hard time getting along with friends. My teachers were not impressed with the way I would act around my friends. When tired, I wouldn’t ever want to pay attention or listen to my teacher or peers.
I didn’t tell anyone for a while. Not my teachers, siblings, or even my family. My parents still don’t even know. My other friends at that time never really understood that I was getting bullied but that’s because I didn’t tell them either. It was really complicated because whenever someone saw that I was down and they asked if anything was wrong, I would act like nothing had happened the rest of the day but inside, only I knew that I was being bullied in the sixth grade.
