Fear is in our lives everyday; from being scared of a little spider, to being scared of having no one to sit with at the lunch table. Everyone has fears as children and adults. The fear a teacher feels about his or her students can change how the school is run, just as much as the fear a student feels about a teacher. Fear has a hold on today's school system and changes the way teachers teach their students, as well as students' capabilities to learn the subject properly. When I was in school, the students ran the school by spreading fear into the teachers' hearts.
When you compare schools from the 1800’s and today, you will realize how things have drastically changed. Some believe that the public school system today has taken a turn for the worst in the past years. Students have more than just tests and quizzes to worry about. They are faced with violence, drugs, sex and pregnancy, and state mandated tests that will tell whether they will pass to the next grade. The public school classroom today has more children which takes away the personal attention to each individual student.
When children are disruptive in the classroom it can cause a lot of problems for their classmates and their teacher. Yet, in the long run, it's the disruptive child themselves who is most impacted, on both a social and educational level (Epstein, Atkins, Cullinan, Kutash, & Weaver, 2008). Behavior modification techniques should be used in school, to change the negative behaviors, and increase the positive behaviors seen in these children. Currently, the public school system has failed to have a universal discipline strategy, and many schools take a school to prison approach, to weed out the bad seeds that they are incapable of managing.

Students need to see that it is really important to attend school everyday so that they attend in a regular basis. The last major reason that students drop out school is that they fail in school and they give up. According to the report, students said that no one would help them when they were having trouble with something. They did not get any support from most of their teachers so they give up and drop out of school. I think that students who are failing a class are the ones that need more support since they tend to frustrate when they do not understand something.
In her kindergarten class, they are beginning to push more academics on the students. With more time being set aside for academics, there is less time for unstructured play and creative projects. In the past, severe behavioral problems were often traced back to the home life of each student. However, with this influx of academia and cutting of play, more students are tending to act out. This behavior not only effects the student, who is taken out of class due to bad behavior, but the entire class who is derailed from the lesson plan.
There is a lot of inadequacy in rehabilitation services and special education programmes. Even if there are facilities, lack of awareness prevents them from being utilized. A better awareness of learning disorders and of culturally acceptable means to treat the affected children could greatly decrease the burden of affected children, their families and the society as a whole. Movies like Taare Zameen Par have enlightened people on the subject of Learning Disability. The movie tells the story of an eight year old, Ishaan Awasthi, who suffers greatly until his teacher identifies him as a dyslexic.
(“How Does Bullying Affect Health & Well-being?”). I vividly remember coming home from school almost every single day feeling depressed. I would not be able to anything all day other than cry and feel lonely. Everyday I went to school it become worse for me.

It was not in the best interest of Isabel or her classmates to have Isabel in class when she was having so many outbursts. Teachers at Waukee Elementary are also teaching students that the best way to solve a problem is to lock it away, just like they locked Isabel away. This is a horrible way to live by, especially if you are a teacher whose job is to mold the impressionable minds of today’s youth. Sources: Mandlawitz, M. (2007).

This left parents no choice but to discuss the incident with their children. After Columbine, there seemed to be more and more reports of school violence, more shooting, bombings, and knives being brought to school. As much as parents would like to protect their kids from hearing any of this they can't and the kids come home with questions. The more the kids hear the more they fear; after Columbine 41% of teens in a nation wide survey became afraid for their safety at school. Kids are now scared to go to school and their parents are scared to let them.
