It makes the students less motivated to learn. Moreover, he also argues that the problematic issues lie within the bureaucracy.

All these resources are housed in the school library, but the library is so much more than that. Alfaro (2009) defines the school library as “…a wealth of information in print and non-print formats categorized to support the knowledge the children will learn in their classrooms, at home, and through first-hand experiences” (p. 30).

Abrams (2003) asserts that librarians can “…make a difference over the next five years by understanding what’s coming, learning how it works, seeking key benefits for our students, and becoming the resource in our schools that lifts our learners up to their full potential” (p. 6).

Many at-risk students are not performing on standardized tests when they are taught using traditional teaching methods of lectures, note taking, and assigned reading and questioning. Furthermore, at-risk students usually struggle, lose interest and motivation and often become embarrassed or depressed by failure when taught under these methods. Many at-risk students struggle with processing new information globally and cannot follow teachers when they teach step-by-step.
Research shows teachers are not equipped to adequately educate students with special-needs because they "lack the time, training, or right attitude"(Reynolds and Todd 2). In a study about teachers' views on inclusion, some said it caused "additional stress" and "feelings of inadequacy" when teaching the special-need students (Grieve 175). Teachers will not be able to address each student's need, which will negatively affect the education of disabled children. General education teachers do not learn in their education program the proper method for teaching students with disabilities in an inclusive classroom. From a study done by Forlin, Chambers, and Kantor the "research reveals that school staff believe that they are under-prepared to deal with students with special needs" (McGhie-Richmond et al.
Analysis In the beginning of this year, I had lots of difficulties with this class because I did not think that writing papers in college would be so different from writing papers in high school. It was not easy at all because I did not understand many of the procedures of writing papers. I come from Puerto Rico and one of my weaknesses is the language barrier.

The topic of this study was Difficulties in Academic Writing: From the perspective of king Saud University post graduate students. The result of this study is that it is difficult for students to write on their own.

You become labeled a bad teacher all because you cannot handle the added problems in your classroom. On top of that there is constant miscommunication between the principal and vice principal as to how you should teach your students.
The teacher's learning style, incompetence, disrespect, negative feedback or remarks and poor modulation influence learner behavior interme of autonomy. The increased autonomy of learners leads to misconduct in the classroom (Cotterill, 2015: 6). Misconduct refers to learners' talks, learners walking while teaching the teacher, avoiding participation in learning teaching-learning activities, confrontational behavior and attitudes (Lessing & De Wet, 2011: 404).

When the students are unable to read, they begin to have a mindset that they are incompetent, when this is not necessarily the case. They begin to have a negative association with school.
