We all have to recognize our problems and be there for each other, otherwise we’ll end up like Holden. Denying teachers from being able to discuss the book in a class setting, teenagers would miss the point and would think Holden was a foul person and had no
Most people don’t criticize their parents for not acting the way teachers act in class. Most children appreciate their parents for giving them the opportunity to get an education. However, Rodriguez is so infatuated with knowledge that he looks at his parents in disgust because they stopped their education at a certain point. Some people might argue that there have all been times where parents have done something to irritate us. Parents may do things that are annoying from time to time but that doesn’t give kids the right to be rude and undermine their parents.
Perhaps the parents could have pulled their child out of that school to prevent further damage, but things are easier say than done. Bullying is something I worry my own son will have to deal with in the future, but if we are lucky, hopefully he will not have to deal with it. To be honest, after watching the video it did saddened me and the same time in made me feel upset. It saddened me because I know both the parents and school administrators
If students are bound to cheat and the honor code is not being enforced or is not fair, why have it? The environment in many schools impacts how students view the honor code. A school with a cheater mentality and an overall acceptance of cheating and plagiarism will have no use for an honor code, since they will not follow it. However, change the environment of the type of students and an honor code can now become beneficial and essential (Jennifer and
Sherry goes on and explains why we think it is right to sometimes excuse students who cheat the system because they come from terrible environments, but then goes on to conclude that “most kids don’t put school first on their list unless they perceive something else is at stake.” I think this is why there is a UIL rule at a lot of schools with a “no pass no play” policy. Students who are involved in extracurricular activities then have a reason to strive to pass. Sherry believes that “people of all ages can rise above their problems, but they need a reason to do so.”
All because he could not go outside, from one story by a mom on her child. Another reason is middle schoolers are socializing a lot more and they feel they need to talk to their friends and recess is perfect time for that. Also it will solve the cellphone problems with recess because if middle schoolers want to socialize than maybe recess can stop kids from going on their phone. Also having no recess will make middle schoolers feel even worse. To explain more middle schoolers friendships can be hurt because they can 't talk.
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades.
It could help the kids who struggle in school to get more help with what they don’t understand. Some families don’t go on vacations so for those kids who don’t go on vacations they wouldn’t complain that they are bored and have nothing to do because they would be at school. Most students would not want school to be year round and I agree with that. School year round is way too much for us kids.
Many say that students should not compete in competitive sports because it can result in many students giving up because they don't make tryouts, but it can also make kids strive harder to keep going and to not give up. Students should compete in competitive sports because it helps kids learn important life lessons. By having students compete in competitive sports it teaches students to respect others, and to set goals and achieve them. By
Usually everyone feels quite guilty with whatever decision he or she goes with. Like for example if you say yes, (and agree to skip school) that day, you would feel guilty and crummy you disappointed your parents, but on the other hand if you say no and make up and excuse you could feel left out because all your friends skipped school and you’re the only one here not having fun. Indirect peer pressure can seem as convincing as direct peer pressure. An example of indirect peer pressure is like when a friend of yours keeps on talking about a game that’s phenomenal, and you go buy the game after hearing what he said, means that you just gave into this type of peer pressure.
One survey question reads, “If you ever experienced a form of bullying, how did it make you feel? Did you go to someone for help?” One student answered this question by saying, “yes it made me feel really shitty and made me hurt myself. No, I did not go for help, nobody would listen.” This student shows that they chose to not say anything because they feel or know that nobody would listen anyway.
Some people at Webb City High School would be very angry to find out that they will no longer be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities due to their grades. The students who really want to play sports though would get into gear and get their grades up to prove that they deserve to play. What is a School without education? Pointless. Other people in the community believe that the “C rule” is not fair for the people who do not participate in any extracurricular activities because they will not be being punished.
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
So in conclusion, there can be both positive and negative effects to this. If this would have happen I think it would be bad for the kids and also for the schools. If this would have happen there could be some positive effects as well. I feel that if the school board wanted to take away after school sports, I would have people join toghter so the school board would not be able to take away after school sports. So in the end, that is why if the school board took away after school sports it would be a bad
Elementary students in Indianola, Mississippi were unfairly arrested when caught talking during a school assembly. Schools in the U.S. have gotten way too strict when it comes to discipline. The causes and effects of these situations may be enough to ruin the high school careers of most of these students or even produce a bigger issue. Students are being robbed of their respect and dignity when punished and accused of being potential criminals. Notice, students in these schools either don’t care or aren’t getting any better.
