  • Our Inefficient Education System

    1270 words, 6 pages

    According to Wikipedia “Education in the general sence is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sence, education is the process by which society deliberatley transmits its accumulated knowlwdge, skills, and values from one generation to another.” I do believe this is true, but thoughout the years the system of education has changed drastically both in a negative and positive way. If you compare education and the method of teaching amongst schools, you will see that it is very different from each other.

    Historically, in cases of peer-to-peer abuse, whether physical or emotional, the blame is laid on the belligerent boys or girls. The bystanders who hover, chime in, or squirm on the outskirts of the 'mean' action are dismissed as irrelevant. Also dismissed are those who spread the tale of the victim's woe through the grapevine. In truth, however, this supporting cast plays a significant role in peer-to-peer violence....Bystanders make or break bullying episodes."

    Writing academic papers or just your normal day to day school work can be very intimidating at times. As long as I have the determination and the drive to succeed, conquering these obstacles will be a relatively easy task. Unlike traditional college where you go in and sit in a class and have months before you finish, online schooling is much more demanding. It requires that you have the motivation to complete your work on time and learn the material that is presented in front of you. A lot of knowledge can be carried on from one’s high school experience but like many people, polishing up thos

    Hard Times By Dickens

    ‘Hard times’ is a dawdling but captivating novel by Charles Dickens, first published in 1854. The book is a state-of-the-nation novel, which aimed to highlight the social and economic pressures that some people were experiencing. Unlike other such writings at the time, the novel is unusual in that it is not set in London (as was also Dickens' usual wont), but in the fictitious Victorian industrial town of Coke town, often claimed to be based on Preston. In ‘Hard Times’ Dickens shows his dislike for education in the Victorian age. He shows his dislike in many different ways through out the nov

    Hucksters In The Classroom

    Jakoma Jackson September 4, 2007 Business Ethics Hucksters in the Classroom The issue with corporations flooding the schools with advertised products is plain to see: they only have one objective in mind; to increase their company’s revenue. These companies are like sharks; they smell when a school is in dire need of educational materials and they bite- offering low budget schools equipment for learning with the stipulation of being able to advertise a product. I believe that this is morally wrong because these companies don’t care what they advertise as long as they stay in accord

    Personal Search’s at School Should the administrative office have the authority to search our bags and lockers for illegal drugs or weapons? Should the principal allow a search, while invading a student’s privacy? Of course, students attending school, while at school, should not be carrying such items with them. But, is a search really necessary? Would a search be benefitting our school system or simply a waste of a government taxes? To be brutally honest, I believe searches are a waste of time for our law enforces as well as a waste of class time. Now days, students take learning as somet
