In conclusion, 9/11 had extreme and extensive effects on schools and school communities. Even though most of the aftermath was negative and painful, American society came together to support one another out of it as well. On the other side, the life before that day was particularly regular for most of society. There are numerous parallels between the time then and the time now, such as the example of the dress-code issue, and this observation is humbling yet eerie, for any moment a disaster could strike

Unfortunately, there are some people who attempt to circumvent the standards for academic behavior by resorting to such activities as cheating, plagiarism, and collusion. These practices of “academic dishonesty” are considered an attack on integrity of an educational institution and essentially cheapen the learning experience for all involved: this includes the perpetrator, other students, and members, and members of the faculty (Nelson, 2006). On the other hand, communities across the nation are taking a renewed interest in the problem of poor school attendance. Truancy reduction program designed to serve students who have attendance problems are rapidly being organized to a number of models. However, despite these said reduction programs, a national review of discipline issues in schools conducted in 1996-1997 found that school principals perceived student absenteeism and tardiness to be two most serious problems in their schools (Fiore,
These issues are really serious problems which are against ethically methods. For example, according to the textbook, “Transcendental” leads people to think about basic rules of human experience, what good life is, what good behavior is and how we do tell right from wrong. I think consequentialism is always happened in the world. It means how good or bad on action is depends on its results. In the Sierra Leone situation, there were long civil war, and after this, some bad things happened.
One such example is from when he was selected to be founding principal for the Bronx Lab School. The previous school, Evander Childs High School, had a 34% graduation rate and the people felt unsafe. While he admits to making mistakes, he realized the importance of a teacher and he hired a staff of exceptional and hard-working ones. With those teachers the school had a 86% graduation rate, 350 college acceptances, and $2.5 million in financial aid. This example from his life shows the importance of a teacher and strengthens his argument.

In my junior year of high school, I came to dominate the role of a junior class representative in the English Honors Society, a secretary in Mu Alpha Theta, and a junior class representative in Science Exploration Club. In my senior year, I became the president of Mu Alpha Theta, vice president of English Honors Society, and event coordinator of the FIU Science Club. Due to the difference in hours of commencement for the AAA program and for Dr. Michael Krop, my peers and I could not engage in the activities conducted in our main high school. Thus, through the roles I presided over, I brought back the high school experience that the AAA program
Cheating is not only an issue in the classroom, but outside of it as well. Cheating has become one of the top reasons relationships have tended to last much shorter spans in contrast to previous times. Consequently, cheating hinders more than just a person’s ability to learn, but it also negatively affects their character. If you asked an average high school student to give you reasons for cheating in school, I am certain the list would be never ending - from reasons as simple as being too lazy to complete the tasks, to some students just flat out not understanding their assignments. Jones suggest that, “The reasons students engage in academic dishonesty vary, but as commonly understood, the overriding reason is performance” (144).
Not only were Native students separated from their family members and communities living on the reservations, but also from those relatives or friends who attended the boarding schools along with them. Both in the American and Canadian institutions, children were divided into different groups based on their age and sex (Haig-Brown 73). The schools did not allow much social interaction between the different groups, therefore, siblings, cousins and friends rarely met each other. The separation of family members and friends inside the school made children feel even more lonely, powerless and vulnerable (71). In the U.S., it became a policy that boarding schools limited both the frequency and duration of students’ visits home, claiming that they would
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.
