At the workplace about “71% of women do not tell about sexual harassment” (Gale). More than half of the population of women have not told anyone about them getting sexually harassed, they become too worried about the embarrassment that they could potentially face or possibly cause more problems and anger from their attacker. In the workplace the “women reporting sexual harassment end up losing their jobs” (Gretchen Carlson 8:06). This causes most women to become too scared to report sexual harassment in their workplace because the outcome could turn into them losing their job. Often times when women report sexual harassment at work people usually do not believe them so they get fired for what people think considered lying or dramatic.
Growing up without one of the parents in the home is difficult on the development of the child. Some kids in this situation grow up with a sense of entitlement and arrogance, which leads them to have confrontations against authority. Teaching children about equality and responsibility while they are young will help them grow up as respectful, law abiding
Young workers had dangerous jobs like working in the coal mines. Kids during the 1820’s through 1920’s went on strike because working conditions were unhealthy, unfair and unsafe. Conditions in the spinning-room textile mills in Lowell, Massachusetts were extremely unhealthy. Workers often suffered hearing loss or other diseases primarily of the lungs due to the loud noise the many looms made and the cotton fiber they were breathing in. The text states “ “Tremendous noise caused hearing damage and cotton lint swirled in the air.”(page 28) One worker stated “ I breathed it down my nostrils.”(page 28 )This exemplifies health risks that the girls had to work under because owners were not concerned about their well being.
‘Of Mice and Men’ is a novella set at the time of the ‘Great Depression’, this time period was extremely tough for all Americans due to the lack of stable jobs. Unfortunately, discrimination against black people was extremely prevalent as America was a very racist place. ‘Of Mice and Men’ highlights the discrimination towards black people through Crooks, a black stable buck. One way Steinbeck demonstrates discrimination towards Crooks is through Candy’s explanation of the boss’s attitude towards him. In chapter two, when George and Lennie arrive late at the bunkhouse, Candy tells them about the boss giving the stable buck “hell” as they did not arrive on time.
School uniforms should not exist in public schools. Wearing a school uniform is difficult for growing and maturing students. When going through this stage of life, they are just trying to find themselves. Suppressing students and not letting them express themselves in unhuman like. Clothing is such a statement to many children, and taking that away is not fair.
This type of teaching focuses on strictness and blind obedience. If the child fails to fulfill what is asked of them, it will result in physical or mental punishment. At first glance, some people would be inclined to believe that children raised with this type of style should be expected to grow up with very few behavioral problems. However, the studies reveal that this is not the case. In fact, children raised under this parenting style grow up with many more problems such as low self-esteem, getting involved with bullying as a victim or perpetrator, become less resourceful, develop a greater risk of anxiety, and develop lower social skills.
For example, it may ruin the feeling of safeness in the school environment for that student. It can even inhibit their ability to excel in academics. In an article written by Elisha Mcneil, it states: A growing body of evidence highlights the connection between adverse childhood experiences and academic problems. The effects of trauma can impair a child’s cognitive ability, while the stress of a dysfunctional or unstable home life can make children act out or shut down in the classroom. In a way, I think that a school not being trauma-informed almost creates an unsafe environment for the student.
There is no doubt that bullying affects children later in life and with the stress of everything at a young age, it can be extremely harsh on children. With these statistics in mind, why doesn’t our society pay more attention to it? A lack of responsibility and lack of realization is present. Administrators and teachers must adhere to the signs of bullying and help to create a safer environment for victims of bullying. Most teachers just don’t recognize the signs of bullying.
Dalit children are treated poorly at schools. This is a huge issue because they are being mistreated based on their caste. How do you think the Dalits feel towards the way they get treated at schools? They are keen to learn and get good grades but teachers don’t like to embrace the actuality that they are Dalits. In 2016, NCDHR (National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights) featured an article called ‘Overview of Dalit Human Rights Situation’.
2). In school, kids and teens are held under a lot of pressure to fit in. Sometimes, when a kid is seen as different, people will bully them. Especially taking into consideration that teens and children would be most likely to face this tormenting everyday, it would be very hard to deal with. When one is bullied they may feel isolated and trapped, and they might spiral into a suicidal state.
