Sparta lacked in education, they were too harsh on the children in military training, and the Spartans didn’t allow traveling. To begin with Sparta completely discarded all advanced education. In document A it states,”Only the rudiments of reading and writing were taught”. This unacceptable, because for a civilization to flourish they need to be both smart and strong. Sparta needs to balance their military and education better.
Mustapha Mond explains to John that books are prohibited because these people “couldn’t understand it.” I see this in society today as well. Nobody cares to know where their clothing comes from or where their plastic trash goes to because society has made it irrelevant. It is just simply something that is not spoken about and nobody cares to speak about it. The truth of sweatshops, inhumane working conditions, and landfills is drowned in a sea of irrelevance because the government does not want to make it relevant.
The residential schools were incredibly destructive to their culture and even though the author doesn’t make this the focus of the novel it explains why Otter Lake is the way it is. Their lack of culture has led to a disconnect with the land, shown in the eagerness to build on it and how it’s seen as an administrative task rather than something of cultural significance. The lack of culture has also changed their relationship with each other. Virgil and many other kids are often left to raise themselves while their parents focus on their jobs. In return, they have no connection with their past and where they came from.
Racism is just as strong today with muslims and other people of colour now as it was a hundred years ago. The excuse history won’t repeat itself if we know what happened, how it happened and why. History still repeats, and it will repeat with the targeted groups changing to fit that of the century. But a book using complicated language being force read to students with no background over the book isn’t going to teach anything other than to hate the love of reading and to skip past the view that Huckleberry Finn was supposed to be the example of being better and less racist than everyone else in the
In school, Luis experiences the improper class placement, “the school separated these two groups by level of education:the professional-class kids were provided with college-preparatory classes; the blue-collar students were pushed into industrial arts.(AR 84) This type of class placement is unfair, because it is based on their status and kids do not have the option of being born into a rich or poor family. Students don’t even have a chance to choose the field they want to be in and they have their future already planned for them. Education is one of the root causes that are not
One can make the argument that education officials who disregard rhetoric as a necessary concept to teach are making a huge mistake because rhetoric is everywhere and the subject cannot be eliminated, why try to do so? Due to the fact that rhetoric is popularly used daily, rhetoric proves that the subject is valuable to students, in fact the University of Iowa stated that, “Rhetoric is a fundamental building block of good education…” (Why is Rhetoric Required). This quote seamlessly emphasizes how profoundly students need to be taught rhetoric throughout their learning experience. However, some may say rhetoric is an irrelevant course to take because all that the subject deals with is argument.
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.
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades.
Smith refused to provide accommodations. While Ms. Howard believed she was acting in the best interest of the student, she failed to contact Keesha’s parents about what had happened in the science classroom. Thus, Keesha’s parents were not given the opportunity to advocate on the behalf of their child (Weishaar and Scott, 2006, p. 72). If they had the opportunity, the parents could have filed a formal complaint or discussed this issue with the special education director of the district (PACER, 2005).
And the world is full of matches" (Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451). Kids now days just can’t stand school and this may sound like the best deal ever because the governments wants the happiness of people, but what happens when there are no doctors because there is just no background info on it, what about coding and the apps that kids are always on. Fahrenheit 451 is a war-torn society because of the attitudes and the lack of care for anything which is where the future generations are heading. We wouldn’t have any background info to progress our race at the rate it has been going at would maybe even start
Lastly, Huck didn’t put up with anyone telling him what to do, especially pap. Pap was racist and abusive, and Huck fought back even though he knew he’d be beat. Pap was furious that Huck was going to school and learning to write, on account of nobody else in the family being able to, saying: “You’re educated, too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
High schools, colleges, and universities should not have honor codes or honor systems because, some colleges cannot enforce them, students will not tell on one another, and the responsibility of others honor is burdened on students. Contradictory to what many may believe many schools lack the authority and control that is essential in maintaining honor codes. This makes it less likely anyone will abide by such codes. As aforementioned, schools don 't have the ability to enforce honor codes in such a way they would change a student 's behavior. Honor codes implementation makes it highly unlikely that there would be any affect on students whatsoever.
