Though it may not seem obvious, the school shows a distinct lack of care for its pupils, they have introduced new systems of learning, people who are not acquainted with the area are chosen to teach there, causing different, more obvious problems with the students. Learning can also be associated with a loss of innocence because ignorance and innocence go hand in hand: the less you know, the less likely you are to try something because you don’t even know of the certain thing, and you know things that make you less innocent in the first place. All in all, the story is based around racism and the Great depression and other such themes. The school represents many of these things, innocence, racism and depression. On the opposite side of the same coin, it could also represent many good things about this period of time, but it exuded these characteristics the most.
The stereotype goes as far as not helping people, “Recognizing the threat that Islamophobia poses, psychologists are working to make sure Muslim Americans get the help they need. Unfortunately, Muslim Americans face several barriers to treatment, including stigma about mental health and mental health services in Muslim communities.”(Clay). The people of Muslim culture are being put through things that just flat out suck and what’s worse is that they can’t even get proper help because of the same reason they have problems with in the first
Have studies proved that segregating students by gender leads them to do better in school? Students learn better in single-gender schools. This is because in single gender schools, students tend to be able to concentrate more. Boys and girls are also academically different, so separating them by gender, would benefit students in their academics. Lastly, boys and girls feel less pressured in single-gender schools.
They claim, “...students of color are showing that they feel disconnected from their respective schools, that implicit yet institutionalized racism creates emotional distance between them and their white peers and faculty. Being a black student on a predominantly white campus certainly, doesn’t guarantee that the student will develop mental-health issues. However, various studies suggest that perceived or actual discrimination can make it hard for students of color to engage with their campus in the way that their white peers do.” This explains how students sometimes feel like they don’t get enough support from their universities and this is dangerous because it can lead that student to drop out of school. According to “From the achievement Gap to the Education Debt: Understanding Achievement in U.S. Schools” claims
Nevertheless, their low performance and bad grades show there is a problem. Unfortunately, especially in the English class, bad results are becoming commoner. It is said that lack of motivation in language learning is the main cause for students’ low proficiency levels. Some people claim it is due to external factors, and consequently is teachers’ responsibility. While others say this problem must be internal, regarding students’ role.
Schools ignore their needs and fail to ensure they get the same academic and extracurricular benefits as non- transgender students. LGBTQ students also lack support from their friends and family and have to deal with negative messages and attitudes at school. Students suffer from abuse as being shoved into lockers, being mocked and called names such as faggots, cocksuckers, etc. Almost 98.1% LGBTQ students heard the word “gay” be used on a negative way and felt harassed by it and about 82% LGBTQ students experienced verbal harassment at school in general (Kosciw, Greytak, Giga, Villenas, & Danischewski,2016) Students don 't even report assaults most of the time because school staff don 't really do anything about it and the situation can get worse. Discrimination in schools against LGBTQ students affects their academic success and mental health.
Imagine a classroom where students a caned for getting grades lower than a certain mark and after the exams are caned for falling below the pass mark. It is important to realize that this kind of environment would create fear within the children. Consequently, in this kind of environment where one is punished for not doing well in his or her academics, the student would not be comfortable in making mistakes which are all part of the process of learning. The studies done by Arif and Rafi similarly backs this up. In their research it can be concluded that the pupils who experience corporal punishment do not actually get better, but do worse than those who do not experience it
Many students that know uniforms will be beneficial, but don’t agree with school uniforms will continue to disagree with implementing them. It can be easily agreed that school uniforms may take away their self-expression in school, but what matters more in school is the way of learning. It can also be agreed that many students do not accept the self-expression of their classmates and make fun of them. Students, parents, and school administration should be able to recognize the benefits that school uniforms come with. In conclusion, school uniforms are a great thing to have in schools.
There are people who think students should not wear school uniforms. Then, there are people who agree with wearing school uniforms. Thesis: o Uniforms are not beneficial because they affect students’ academic achievement, freedom, and their image. Main points: o Academic achievement o Students freedom o Students do not like them and it effects their image. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, as of 2007-2008 school
Miller (2010) conjectured that children who grow up under authoritarian parenting styles often experience long term emotional consequences. They tend to have poor social skills, low self-esteem, anger and higher rates of depression and anxiety. It is due to independence is discouraged; children are taught to follow rules rather than taking initiatives. They are not taught how to think. This lack of independence, both emotional and physical, can eventually result in low self-esteem.
It becomes next to impossible to strive to be better when the youth are constantly told they are worthless by people of higher authority and even their own peers. In the novel, Dr. Rios describes a concept He calls “dummy smart”. During his study he noted that there were multiple youth who were doing very well in school, but were labeled as being deviant and dumb by school officials. They purposely acted as if they were uninterested in school, but when called upon they always knew the answer, which shows they are more willing to gain respect from people of higher authority in a more negative way. As the novel progresses Dr. Rios goes on to explain how some of the youth wanted to change, but felt
This example of Oliver’s school forbidding him to use the restroom that is congruent with the gender that he identifies as is another demonstration of oppression for it accepts the majority party’s ability to impose standards on the LGBTQ community. Since the LGBTQ community has less possession of economic, social, and political power, they are habitually oppressed and
Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom. Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum.
This quote is explaining how kids that are going to school and coming from better households than their peers can affect how they feel about school. Kids that come from poor incomes homes don’t enjoy school because maybe they feel like they aren’t good enough for it which makes them not want to go and get into gangs or things they shouldn’t be in. In conclusion This goes back to my reasoning on saying that the strongest cause of minority male incarceration in the U.S is young dropouts because most of the kids , teens , etc that get killed nowadays aren’t educated and involved in
While a few workers felt that they would dependably be seen as not exactly having a place in U.S society, other people who were brought up here likewise felt the same path, in view of the general public 's impression around them. Its awful individuals don 't consider us to be being Americans. Since we 're an obvious minority. My parents however they sent me to United States to study, were agonized over how I was going to adapt to the remarks and reactions about Muslims in the general public. They stressed that I would in any case be seen adversely as "not belonging", regardless of being a Muslim.
