The long waits and the unknowing is what take it toll on people and can affect the youngest of the family. I feel that people now more than ever have the power to fight for what they want, it is not going to be easy, but the fact that many have tried has gatten us this far. The need for educated people to better the economic is a great one but we are not taking advantage of what we have, which is all the immigrant college graduates that can use their degrees and not have to work in job where they are treated unfairly and have no need for their major. All the work that is put into their futures by their family is gone to waste because they are unable accomplish their goals.
For example, if a student went to school to be a nurse and is passed because he or she doesn’t disrupt class and was a good student this cause them to get a diploma. However, when they get into the real world they cannot deliver what is expected of them and can also be very costly for the employers. Therefore, the employer has no choice but to rehire and retrain. If the teacher were using the “F” word then the student would take the class more seriously and realize that their future is at stake.

Most college students seeking to become teachers are in their twenties, which Haberman considers to be the worst time to train someone to be an effective teacher. He notes that young adults are still struggling with the issue of self-identity, fighting off peer pressure, seeking independence and trying to find meaning and purpose in life. Many have few real-world experiences, seek immediate gratification, and are idealistic, which are exact opposite characteristics of what a teacher is suppose to be. A teacher must be committed to the needs of her students and inspire confidence and build self-esteem in them not look for her/his individuality and be self-absorbed. Therefore, mature adults are more likely to be successful teachers because they have more experiences and firm values.
Procrastination is the plague that infects most of the students during their academic career. According to Hara Estroff Morano, “Procrastination is the one personal flaw that every student and adult in our time-pressured culture openly admits to” (41). It is easy to say you will do this assignment tomorrow but the next day you find the same work become stressing as you are running against the due date. Avoiding procrastination might seem impossible, especially when it becomes a habit, but there are methods suggested by experts to eliminate it. Techniques such as following a schedule, avoiding distractions, taking action, breaking to-do’s into smaller pieces, learning frustration–tolerance skills and last but not least having an internal motivation will help students avoid their procrastinating habit.
Administrators need to be taken accounted for not the students, teachers, or schools. Schools should require life skills classes that teach them how to function in everyday life. Teachers should be paid more if their students start preforming well and enjoy the class. Schools should be ranked on college readiness test no standardized tests. There is no doubt about it, there will never be a perfect school.
Too much emphasis on a single test gets students nowhere. Many critics say that high school graduates are unprepared for college, because of this testing many graduates go to college unprepared. The students then have to take remedial courses, because they can not handle college level work(chronicle 1). These tests are to prepare students for the classes and work ahead, but all the do is hold students back. Many teachers fear that they are sending the students into secondary education unprepared.
People who do not have the aptitude for college should not be forced into thinking college is the only way to be successful in life. Society should encourage students to explore all job options not just the college related ones, because with the way times are changing getting trained from a vocational school is the best option America’s citizens have.

In fact classroom learning alone will not be enough to achieve the competence and the self confidence, teaching clinical skills at early stages during college will have a positive feedback and has potential benefits not only on the students but for other stakeholders. This experience will definitely influence my future practice; my action plan would be using those teaching strategies in preparing students to face the clinical environment, to ensure optimal patients’ health outcomes and it helps to build a competent and independent clinician. However, we have to keep in mind that we always have to update ourselves with new technology as there are ongoing new technologies are coming up for example the SimMan mannequin, we need to get the potential benefit from this technology in order to increase teaching
Teachers are continuously leaving the classroom because they are motivated enough to deal with the schools falling scores and they’re burnout. As an individual, it’s only so much you can deal with and these teachers obviously can’t handle what’s going on with the schools current situation. Solutions The primary solution that the Woodson Foundation wants to happen is to integrate both organizations.

The school system is constantly changing and dealing with new problems which than affects the teachers job. You become labeled a bad teacher all because you cannot handle the added problems in your classroom.
