Bogdan Galay ENG 1020/CRN # 10242 Dr. Thomas Orange April, 30, 2014 Downgrade of American Schools American education is going down. It is very noticeable by parents, experts, and students. There are numerous articles and research analysis done trying to find the cause of the downgrade and recession in K through grade 12. To most students, schools are not an exciting place where they may feel like they are not learning any new material. For others, schools cannot provide a basic level of education because they do not have funds to do so.
You criticised parents because they are not able to devote their time to their children due to long working hours. As a result, the children lose self control and start developing violent actions. ‘Parents are trying to buy their children’s love, which is toxic’, Elliott labelled the method that parents are doing as ‘toxic’. According to your article, this practice leads the children to lose their self-control and have no boundaries over anything. When children request something to their parents, parents could not afford to say the word ‘no’ as they would feel guilty because they have not been providing their children quality time.
Students will become over dependent as they are assured that everything is provided for. As such, they have a hard time fitting into the society as well as getting themselves hired. Employers have rejected many candidates who are more than qualified academically but are lacking soft skills (Saint Louis Community College, 2013). They noticed that such candidates lack the ability to communicate and think creatively in order to solve the problems that are existent in their line of work. Interviewees are unable to portray interpersonal skills and do not apply what has ... ... middle of paper ... ...g a short attention span both in school and tuition.
Another factor that can diminish the quality of parenting is parents arguing, as shown in “The Little knife”. In the last sentence of “The Little Knife” Chabon writes, “all the discord for which, in his wildly preserving imagination, he was and would always be responsible” (Chabon, 1991, p 109). This quote shows that Nathan truly believes that he is the reason for all of the arguing that his parents are going through. When children see their parents fight they can feel very scared and unprotected, because they have no one to go to, to feel safe. The kids might be worried that one of their parents will hurt another during the argument.
Sometimes, those who are bullied... ... middle of paper ... ...ith cyber bullying (do something). It is heartbreaking to think that only a small amount of teachers stood up when students are supposed to feel safe at school and open to their teachers. Another study also reports that 51 percent parents do not feel safe but rather “scared” for their child’s safety (mail online). In America, many leaders and supporters claim to make children feel safer and able to learn but with these high percentages it is impossible to feel safe at school when the victims are constantly being targeted not only online, but even at school. Also, since parents are not educated on this subject they have no knowledge of how to respond of even cope with the situation.
Holden's mother is already very sick, and finding out that her son has not been in school because he has gotten kicked out , it will just about kill her. He has so much to make up for in his life, and he needs to actually do them not just waist his life on alcohol and cigarettes. Psychoanalytical theories apply to Holden because he needs to become a better peson and become someone he wants to be because his flaws can be fixed.
Introduction In our nation divorce is a big part of life. Divorce is the legal dissolution of marriage or the termination of an existing relationship or union. Divorce starts with two adults but always ends up impacting the children in the biggest way. Sons and daughters of divorce often feel confused and abandoned, lose their family structure, and experience identity crisis. Many parents never bother to think of how divorce will affect their children.
Seeing a young child disrespect their elders is a pet peeve of many adults. Common Courtesy is on the brink of extinction, especially among out youngest generation. Proper etiquette remains an essential component to common courtesy. Though teachers already have their hands full with America’s failing education system, teaching etiquette may be very beneficial. Moreover, parents no longer instruct their children on common courtesy, perhaps because they have not learned it themselves, which hinders an entire generation from their full potential for success.
Mr. Entenmann has also failed to try and connect with the new students leading to an uncaring learning environment that leads the students to misbehave. 2. How do you think the lack of (dis)connectedness, (dis)unit, and (un)caring within the community or group has encouraged or precipitated this behavior problem? The lack of connectedness, unity and caring in the classroom is leading to the misbehavior in the students. Mr. Entenmann shares no desire to connect or understand his students leading them to feel like he doesn’t care for them.
She knows that tomorrow Charlie's father and mother will storm the principal's office demanding that she be fired or reprimanded. Mom and Dad think that Charlie's personal rights have been violated; that he has a right to learn and not be disciplined by anyone, except by his own parents. Due to this precedent, Charlie grows up with little educational discipline or accountability. As Charlie's parents watch him grow into adulthood, they are forced to admit that their son is actually poorly educated, disrespectful and far from perfect. This story is all too familiar in America's public schools today.
