The author states “ We real cool We left school”. The narration of this verse comes from a young perspective. These irresponsible teenagers whom are not specified, leave school and interesting enough, they are now “cool”. They were outcast in schools, the outsiders that could not handle responsibility and decided altogether to leave school permanently. They found school as something tedious and their mind did not grasp how beneficial school could be for them in the future.
He tells this when he said “You’ll have to shut down, have to reject intellectual stimuli of diffuse them with sarcasm, have to cultivate stupidity, have to convert boredom from a malady into a way of confronting the world” (Rose 350). What he is saying in this sentence is students want to be normal they want to fit in in their classroom and if to do that they must act like fools they would do it. From my own experience, I understand what the author is saying of being average. In my whole life when I enter to a new school year I personally don’t want to stick out, I want to be unnoticed or like the author says average. When the author first hears this sentence “I just wanna be average” (Rose 349) didn’t understand what it means but after years he understood that this sentence means to be like everybody
Being innovative requires a leader to toss out the old rules of thought and form innovative ideas or thoughts. Without strong communications, this team may not find their balance. It is important to collaborate and build this trust among the office members. The doctors can’t effectively lead change without the understanding of the staff to make the necessary
Schools are still cutting out electives and still can’t afford some of the basic things that students should have in their learning environment. Lynda Barry in her article The Sanctuary of School talks about how for some kids their school is their safe haven. She shows how valuable extracurricular activities and after school programs are when she says,” Before and after school programs are cut and we are told that public school are not made for baby-sitting children. If parents are neglectful temporarily or permanently, for whatever reason, it’s certainly sad, but their unlucky children must fend for themselves. (Barry 724-725) There are children in our communities that depend on the school to keep them safe and to offer protection when their parents are unable to do that but the schools are
It was a diverse and strict school with many rules I had follow so I knew I had to make a big adjustment. It was challenging for me to come from a school with nothing but freedom and those I’m used to being around on a daily basis to an environment where they teach and students there learn and actually had an interest to want to. I tried to adjust their but I just couldn’t and found myself not attending school once again. I was disappointed in myself that I would easily lack when it comes to getting my education. Just when I thought about really giving up a close friend informed me about Job Corps and exactly what it is they do with young adults who are trying to obtain their diploma or to just advance their education.
With English as the official language of the United States, citizens would experience societal and economic benefits. Learning English will help more people understand and help the government and business industries. With one unified nation, prosperity and community between cultures would grow. All of which would lead to a more outstanding and organized
I started to analyze what my options were and dropping out of school is probably one of the easiest options when you are overwhelmed by confusion. I was no longer interested in educating myself. I felt guilt, fear and ashamed because of the bad choices I made towards my education. Perhaps this feeling is probably what many students feel when English is not their primary language, I never prioritized my education. On multiple occasions, I found myself
The current US educational system is far too outdated and inefficient for the youth (more specifically, students) of the 21st century. Since the days of the industrial revolution, youth have been taught, in essence, the same thing, over and over- to obey orders quickly, quietly and repetitively without truly learning the information that will supposedly "improve" their futures. Kids and teens alike rarely get the chance to truly learn something of their own accord; instead, the higher-ups (teachers, principals, school board, etc. ), choose what kids and teens these days must know and what they are better off (in their opinion) not knowing. Students will never feel the pride and happiness that comes with learning something they have wanted to learn, independently.
Mandatory activities should be enforced into the school systems. To many kids are not contributing enough to their school by just being superb in the classroom. Some kids don 't even discover their ability because they are scared of not making the team or being joked on. That is one of the essential reasons why I think that extracurricular activities should be imposed to every single kid in the school. Also extracurricular activities is a fun time for everybody even if you don 't like what you are being forced to do, you will find something marvelous out of it.
I consider myself that maybe I just got way too close to the wrong friends at the time. Don’t get me wrong, I think you should have friends, just make sure to pick the right ones you want to stay with you. Because once you leave high school and go on to college, no one is obligated to stay in touch with anyone, and no one is obligated to stay in touch with you. The fact that you may not keep in touch with your high school friends is horrible it may consume you for a while, but eventually it will go away when you realize that you’re not obligated to stay in touch with anyone as well. Don’t be shocked if the people you thought you’d be close by end of being strangers.
