The public school system ch...

  • Teachers To Vultures
    301 words
    Teachers Are Vultures In the extended metaphorical poem I wrote, I compared teachers to vultures. The second line means how different all the teachers are. In the third line I wrote how teachers come to school every day on a daily basis. The fourth and fifth line mean how ready they are to teach and lecture their students. I chose to write this because vultures go out everyday to scavenge their food just like teachers come to school everyday. Vultures pick on their prey, therefore I wrote on how...
  • Teaching Methods
    643 words
    James Lampe Topics of Discussion in Educational Studies read the article "Another Look at what young Children Should Be learning" because the title interested me, how do we decide what to teach and when? Who controls the standards for a school? Is it up to the teacher or is it something that the teachers were told to teach? In many cases I understand that it is a mixture of both the teachers influence and what the teacher is required to do. This makes me think back to my own experiences in schoo...

  • Search Of T.L. O
    510 words
    Legal Opinion A. I picked the side of New Jersey in the New Jersey vs. T.L. O case. The reason I picked that side is because the girl was smoking on school grounds and she was not allowed to do that. Another reason is the teacher that found the girl smoking had the right to bring her to the Principals office, because she had a reason to. Finally the girl denied smoking, she said she didn't smoke and she probably would of got in less trouble if she told the truth. B. A girl was caught smoking in ...

  • Special Treatment To The Athletes
    491 words
    When people think about discrimination, they usually associate it with prejudice and connect it with race and gender. But discrimination can take another form. For example, a person can gain an unfair advantage at a job interview by being attractive or by being able to talk about something that has nothing to do with the job, like sports. The people who do not get the job would claim they were discriminated against, and to some extent they would be right. As an athlete, I've experienced both typ...
  • Teachers Face
    988 words

Also it is important to note the availability of jobs and ed...
  • Smic Offers After School
    619 words
    SMIC is extraordinary in many ways. The only school that comes to my mind that actually has a river running through it! The lunches are controversial. School is a just as much a learning experience for the teachers as apposed to the students, and things getting done three weeks, let alone three months, after promised deadlines are commemorated. All these exclusive factors make SMIC a memorable and (if you don't mind me saying) quite exquisite. The thing that I love the most about SMIC is that co...
  • Youre Covering In School And Teachers
    1,182 words
    The paper I am writing about is on how the government can make school better. To be honest with you I think kids need to understand that school is not supposed to be fun. In a way I feel that if teachers make school completely boring for kids then theyll start to get bored with school and just forget about it. If students would just think about it, school is there for you to get an education not for you to be on a vacation. The teachers are there to teach. I think teachers should keep school int...

This mistaken belief can lead them down many false trails as they search for records. Understanding how school systems developed is a great aid in tracking down records. If you have searched in vain for your ancestor's high school records, it may very well be that such r...

    More Security for our Schools A 16-year-old, dark, shadowy image appears in the doorway of the classroom. "Jack, you " re late for class again", the teacher says as he approaches the dark shadowy image. "Have a seat". The 16-year-old boy's mouth remains straight and his eyes appear hollow as he pears into the room. "Hey dork, are you retarded or something? Why ain't you moving?" one of the football players in the back yells to the figure in the door. "Steve, do you want detention?" the teacher r...
