All the parents wants from the child is perfection and victorious so they would get a scholarship for college, but the odds of a child getting a scholarship for sport is very unlikely. This means that all the years of playing sports and trying to be the best was worth nothing for the child. This would scar the parent’s and the child relationship, all because of them playing a competitive sport. Another bad relationship can be with the coach. The coach yells at the child’s bad play and also criticize, just like the parents, but worse.
He claimed “Students are pushed into a constant mood and discontent and reckless behavior because of school restricts them to an insular environment for the greater portion of their week”(Raskin 5). He justifies that school can make students turn their focus inward, making them self-pitting and high-strung. He justifies that behaviors like these can affect students who are financially unstable and those who are financially stable differently. The reasons for why students cheat is important, but how students cheat is also important. In an article I read dealt with the topic of how students cheat.
The feelings of loneliness and failure to have what one desires is present even this day, all over the world. College students are constantly trying to plan out their lives and discover what occupation they should pursue, though more often then not, there are obstacles. Grades do not support the dream, or finances cannot manage the education needed. Feelings of disappointment and an attitude of giving up follow soon after, just as Edna experiences. Struggling to live the life one desires is one of the greatest hardships faced and is felt all around.
12 year-old Carrie, pay less attention to things that don 't matter. The boy you think you can 't live without today? Well...you won 't so much as remember his name. He 'll be replaced with a man you 'll love heart and soul but would never pick for yourself,so stop trying so hard. And I know you think you 're not smart enough, but get an education anyway; tenacity will push you every time you 're afraid.
Although considering the example given by the author about the medical students that attended school in Switzerland, good relationships and friendships were terminated by the instincts of competition. The Americans cheated and sabotaged fellow students by creating bets and rumors leading everyone becoming enemies. This unhealthy behavior later proved to be “stressful and isolating” to the Americans because competition had already evoked their happiness, satisfaction and pride. Competition can be a form of
I want a professor that wants to help me become a better writer. In my opinion, Teller makes himself look like a pompous, arrogant individual. As Stewart points out in her article, “If students consistently fail at something in my classroom, it’s not their fault. It’s mine.” (Stewart, 2016) Conversely, Teller closes out his argument by saying, “If they show up, do the work, turn off their phones, they just might leave my class able to write a sentence.” (Teller, 2016) The idea of having a professor with such a negative of his students repulses me. I believe that Teller may be working in the wrong profession.
John Taylor Gatto addresses his belief in his article “Against School” that schools have become “laboratories of experimentation on young minds, drill centers for the habits and attitudes that corporate society demands.” Students are bored of their teachers, teachers are bored of their students, “who, then, is to blame?” “We all are.” It is our duty as citizens in our society to make sure we are pushing and challenging ourselves every day instead of waiting for another to make it happen for us. The government has become routine enough to allow the few students they believe are capable to continue on their tradition, thus allowing the majority of students fall into useless stereotypes and groups. Students have the ability to manage themselves.
Sexual assault has students on campuses living with shame, embarrassment, and pain, which affect the victims and those around them. This horrendous crime has destroyed many lives and continues to do so, especially when the crimes go unheard. Education is an important part of our society in the world we live in today and is vital for progression. When someone is given a proper education, they receive many additional opportunities that one wouldn’t have other wise and when an individual goes to school they should be able to learn without being harmed in any way. Unfortunately the safety of being on campus is under question as an alarming number of people on campus have reported being sexually assaulted on campus.
Every day I feel like I should just give up because I will never be able to beat my disorder. Often times, I feel my strength diminishing. But in spite of all the doubt, and the fear, I fight against my disorder. I fight so I can achieve in school and in life. When I walk across the stage to receive my diploma, I will know that all the fighting to go above and beyond, despite my disorder making it difficult, will have been worth.
