As a teacher managing problem behavior in your classroom can be one of the most challenging tasks. Behavior problems can range from disruption of lessons to acts of violence against fellow students and teachers. Children’s emotional setbacks and life challenges can also contribute to behavior issues at school. A study done by the Justice Center and the Public Policy Research Institute found that six out of ten students suffered from an “emotional disturbance” and were expelled or suspended between seventh and twelfth grade (Firke, 2011). This same study showed that discipline varied greatly between schools.

To conclude, specific aspects of globalisation are linked to employment in developing countries. The history of globalisation Globalisation has been associated with three main eras throughout the last century, whereby many facets contributing towards a gradual integration of economies (Gunter & Van der Hoeven, 2004) were hampered by global happenings (Preble, 2010). The first era was highlighted by trade and was projected to increase further. However, the arrival of World War I ensured trade protectionism and reprisal (Elliot, 2006, as cited in Preble, 2010). After the war, economies were starting to integrate and many factors, including the establishment of the... ... middle of paper ... ...come inequality has increased amongst the employed (Gunter & Van der Hoeven, 2004; Preble, 2010).
Confucius even mentions this at the earliest start of civilization by saying: “Excessive population growth may reduce output per worker, repress levels of living for the masses and engender strife”.

This articulated the idea of American imperialism – expanding in order to attain raw materials and new markets for the now industrialized nation. American imperialism was not a simple aberration – nor was the endeavor undertaken for completely humanitarian goals. Instead, imperialism was both a continuation of the American expansionist tradition – mainly the Manifest Destiny – and a response to a changing economic international community. The industrializing America had needed new markets, raw materials, and overseas territories to compete with the burgeoning European colonial empires.

“Our Nation is at risk.” This was the very first line of the 1983 report from President Ronald Reagan's National Commission on Excellence in Education. The report focused on the growing concern that the American education system was in a rapid decline. With such powerful statements like "the educational foundations of our society are presently being eroded by a rising tide of mediocrity that threatens our very future as a Nation and a people" and "If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war.”, the report sent off a firestorm of reform efforts at the local, state, and federal levels. Almost thirty years later, has the commission’s recommendations been implemented, or have any of the reform efforts from governmental levels changed the United States educational outlook? This paper will discuss the recommendations set out in the report A Nation at Risk from the National Commission on Excellence in Education, what the issues are with current education reform, and how the current social, political, and economic biases reinforce inequality in the education system.
Students experience a lot of changes in themselves and their behaviors between elementary school and high school. Adolescents are expected to take on a lot of responsibilities that they have not previously been accustomed to. The attitudes of students adjust to their new standards accordingly. Students end old relationships and start new ones. Social, educational, and physical changes can put a lot of stress on middle and high school students, which is why these years are usually regarded as the worst for students.
