In "America Needs Its Nerds" the author Leonid Fridman develops his argument by stating how the nerds feel when they are made fun of by others, how America has created stereotypes and how people look over them for the "cool kids." Many students take pride in their education. They also try to keep their grades up because academic achievement is important. Students who study hard and work hard do not like to admit to others how much they study/work. The author states, "Many students are ashamed to admit, even to their friends, how much they study."
A lot of teens feel like they are isolated from people in school because they fear either that they don't fit in or their classmates don't like them for some reason. They can use the book as something to help them get through things they are going through. Getting told how their lives are going to be planned out for them is a big struggle for some young adults Equality goes through the same thing. “We see that it has ever been thus and that is has brought us step by step to our last” (Rand 20). This quote is basically saying that their life completely planned for them.
Why Bullies Should Not Be Prosecuted If people ask someone about their childhood memories, stories related to school will also emerge with high probability, because everybody spends a significant part of their lives in these institutions. Since school years are influential, it would be important that children have positive memories about this period, but reality does not always correspond to expectations . Bullying is one of the factors which ruin school experience, and it is gaining prominence. According to Olweus, "A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students" (Dake 173). As data shows, the number of children affected by such treatment is increasing: 27.8% of them admitted being bullied in
In both books the main characters meet someone who changes their lives for the better. In both Anthem and Fahrenheit 451 it is considered a sin to be too curious or too knowledgeable. In Anthem Equality 7-2521 is punished by his teachers for being too smart and for being curious about the things that he learns in his classes. He is even punished for being quicker at learning than the other students and for asking questions in class. Equality 7-2521 wishes he was not the way he was and wants to be more like some of his classmates who are not as smart and curious as he is.
This book could make some people think it was glorifying but to make the story known, the author had to tell more about them. Dave Cullen had to tell it in specific detail to give the readers the full effect of this tragedy. E. To me, the author made the boys seem like the outcasts of columbine, but at the same time they seemed to fit in enough to get away with this. No one expected them to do such a thing. The way Dave portrayed them made them seem like guys that were low-key up for that kind of stuff, like they were two different people inside and out of school.
Children are the one who will shape our country's future, but how can they make a good future if they are not taken care of correctly? The influence of a parent on their child is extremely important, and a child’s development can move quickly, especially when they are young. Sometimes children are born into a bad home, and this can lead to setbacks and delays in a child’s growth. In addition, the government can sometimes get involved and remove children from these bad situations, but a lot of people don’t think that it is right. Some people think that the government is just making the child’s life worse, but this isn’t the case.
This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this. Teaching is a privilege because it is an opportunity to provide students with a blessing of knowledge that they may not be able to obtain from home. Minorities from low-income areas most likely do not live in the best conditions, therefore they need to utilize the classroom as a safe haven. Knowing that these student probably cannot afford to get a tutor for the SATs or even study properly because they do not understand the context, makes me want to be a teacher who would offer tutoring sessions for free, find
Implementing policy changes within the educational system can help, but how does that affect the community as a whole. Racial tension will always be a very serious issue unless people come together despite their racial differences and come up with solutions that will not only relieve some of the inconsistencies and pressure but help the next generation to see themselves in a different
Ethical Conflict in Education Many students in society long for acceptance and relevance to their classmates. Having a group of friends that do not judge, bully or shun you is hard to come by today, even back in history. It is hard to gain this privilege due to the harsh actions of someone not only disliking you, it occurs because of the disliking of the skin color. In today’s education system, ethical differences play a major role in the diverse school system. Due to children’s skin color and cultural views, many are differentiated, discriminated and stereotyped, wrongfully by students and teachers, depriving them of the full learning experience.
