143). She has a lot of trouble fitting in to the expectations of her school, mainly because she has suffered so much from the rule of the Islamic Revolution. She views her teachers and principle as a symbol of the regime, and she acts out against it. Even though Marji was a troublemaker and could have listened better in school, because she had the opportunity to go to school, she shows us as readers that it's important to stand up for your rights, both male and female rights. She showed us that just because someone is telling you can’t do something because they don’t like what you stand for, doesn’t mean you have to conform to their ideas.
I was so afraid of reporting my teacher to the principal, ultimately due to my underlying self esteem issues and embarrassment. Referring to the article written by Robert Brooks, Ph.D, “How can teachers foster self-esteem in children?”, he emphasizes that a basic component of high self esteem is having control over the different areas in your life. (Brooks, 2016). Relating this back to me, I now realize the reason for my lower self esteem is because I felt like I didn’t have any control over the situations that were going on. Furthermore, a study completed by the Oxford university also yielded the same results, “racial microaggressions have damaging impacts on the emotional health of racial and ethnic minority young adults” (Cuellar, Matthew J., Forrest-Bank, Shandra S., 2018).
Normally uncertified teachers are not prepared for how certified teachers are through years of schooling and training from education classes. Schools have always had the issue with the shortage of teachers because the types of education laws and issues that arise, which leads to about anyone stepping into the classroom (Sterling & Frazier. n.d). Uncertified teachers who have different educational backgrounds than certified teachers leaves the students not prepared or motivated to learn from someone who is not experienced in teaching (Sterling & Frazier. n.d).
However, what I predicted was the opposite of what would happen. On my first day of school I could not find peace at mind, classes seemed stressful and people were not sociable or even friendly in my opinion. The procedures at the Texas school were different and I had the worst time adjusting to it. I could not even find anyone to have a deep conversation about who I am.
The amount of unfairness that went on at the time affected everyone socially, economically, and with their education. No person can peacefully learn when they are scared about what might happen to them when they walk outside. Everybody at school is there for a reason. To get an education and further grow socially and intellectually as a person. Yes, segregation and inequality was happening all over no matter who you were, but when it comes to education the unfairness should cease as you are only there to learn.
` First of all, school uniforms are extremely difficult to enforce. They require many changes and new rules. Students don't enjoy their loss of privilege, which can lead to rebellion against the uniforms or even the school's supervisors. When I was in elementary, my school had uniforms. I was a brand new student, not looking forward to wearing a navy, red, or white polo shirt every day.
But as I started attending St. Andrews middle school everything began to change. Everyone was beginning to change physically and mentally. What seemed so innocent in elementary school wasn’t acceptable in middle school. Teachers and administrators expected you to be a big kid now. No more of the childishness but it seemed like the absolute opposite was
It all depends on whether you are willing to accept the change or if you want to continue living the same life. We should never take our life for granted no matter what the situation may be. If some people consider change, I hope they make a good change and not a bad one. People change every day and we will just have to accept it unless we feel as if it will cause harm to an individual’s
At Bothell high School a majority of students weren’t sure what the honor code was, and most of the time professors will only wave a finger and explain that cheating is evil and will be enforced through administration. However, in a high school environment the seriousness of an honor code is never fully realized and most students will continue to copy and paste notes from other students. This a serious issue at BHS, and teachers and students are not willing to enforce the honor code due to the taboo nature of reporting a fellow student. Sally Sledge and Pam Pringle ran a number of surveys to show a high schoolers attitude to an honor code. A large amount of students were taught about an honor code whether it be verbal or through the course syllabus, specifically sixty five percent.
Often we do not choose the situation, which we must accept as inherent in life, and so we should be satisfied with all that we have. One of the most stressful factors is the constant thought that you cannot cope. We should be realistic and establish goals that we can achieve and also think about all the risk involved. In other words, we should readjust our standards, redefine success for perfection. It is necessary that and we must never give up even if there is a little sense of frustration.
