This study is relevant because knowing the connection between the variables and social rejection may avoid future autistic students being victimized at public school. Operationalization In Temple Grandin, different genders react differently to the main character, a high-functioning autistic girl. It is hypothesized that male is more aggressive and is inclined to physically bully the autistic student.

400). I found it very fascinating that teachers or school personnel would be the ones behind the crude remarks that transgender students face. “A third of transgender students heard school staff make homophobic (32%) remarks, sexist (39%) remarks, and negative comments about someone’s gender expression (39%) sometimes, often, or frequently in the past year” (Greytak & Kosciw, 2009, p. 12). In order for these students to feel like they belong in school, it is the teachers and administrators jobs to get educated about what it is these students go through. If the students feel like their teachers don’t care about their success they will stop attending
Introduction A shocking and disturbing trend that the public has always noted in standardized tests is that minority examinees tend to score lower on standardized tests than their White, male counterparts. This has caused academic scholars to research this topic more to figure out what is preventing minority examinees from doing as well as their White, wealthy and/or, male counterparts and, thus, not having access to some of the same opportunities. These standardized tests consistently put these students at a clear disadvantage and this is counter to the nation’s overall goal to improve diversity in all aspects of life. This essay will discuss specific factors that put minorities at a disadvantage when it comes to standardized tests and postsecondary entrance into programs and will conclude with a set of policy recommendations that can help level the playing field for all candidates. Structure of Exams In order to determine whether standardized tests used for college and graduate admissions purposes are actually measuring content knowledge that should, at least theoretically, have been acquired over years of study, I investigated how standardized tests are created.
This research will enable collegiate students to gain a greater understanding of the degree of test anxiety they are experiencing, the factors that may be related to test anxiety, and through practical application learn to use productive coping strategies to achieve academic success. Without proper testing techniques students fall well under the expected performance rate and risk failing college and dropping from the higher education track. Researchers hypothesize that there will be a statistically significant difference between male and female students on test anxiety measures. Researchers will explore the relationships between age, classification, and test anxiety.
When it comes to academics it covers up the fact that many Asian American students struggle in school and do not get the help they need. It is also negative because it overlooks years of oppression Asian Americans face when first coming to the United States. Lastly, it creates a lot of racial tension between them and other ethnic groups (Fong 62.) With this I feel as though we should work to get rid of the Model Minority theory, as it would better the life of all Asian Americans because it would uncover the great number of Asians that are overlooked by the theory. The Model Minority theory might have formed based off of the post-1965 Asian immigrants who came to the United States.
Racial segregation in schools is strongly linked to segregation by class, almost ninety percent of the student body, primarily black and Latino, is at an economic disadvantage (Segregation Today)—this is physically and mentally harming our students. Tozer introduces the concept of Pluralism which means valuing and maintaining cultural and linguistic differences within a society. Where has the respect gone? So what if children misbehave, they are kids they will act up, it is the responsibility of the teacher to discipline her class. As I have mentioned earlier, children, especially those of the black community, need to be respected before they can respect.
Schools are one of the first places where kids' behavior and future educational success is shaped. Teachers are carriers of either positive or negative behavior toward students. The reason why the first years of school are so critical is because kids learn the base of their educational life. I believe that teachers must love their career in order for them to pass enthusiasm, to assists, and to provide a warm environment to the students. In my opinion teachers are the second mothers for the students because students spend a lot of time with their teachers.
Indeed, Blank et al (2004 p.108) argues that the big gap between African-American expulsion rates in comparison with other races is an indication of racial prejudice that is inherent in the American school system. Educational critics further argue that the American Educational system is particularly oppressive to the African-American child. They argue that most African-American children are expelled out of school because of minor crimes; crimes that would not lead to ex... ... middle of paper ... ...pline-real-problem-today> Blank, Rebecca M.

The teacher it is the second most important because she/he will be responsible to accommodate every student needs, goals and educate them to succeed in their lives.
