  • S Debate On Education Students
    762 words
    O'Neill's Debate on Education Students are not getting the Basic Knowledge needed today due to the poor upbringing and lack of respect for the need of education. In O'Neills editorial his reason for this was because the students as a whole did not want their ignorance exposed. However, he forgot to include that teachers are just as ignorant as the student. Give a teacher the same test and see hoe much they remember about what they we taught some odd number of years ago. It's not safe to assume t...

    Academic Integrity: Why Students Cheat Surveys say that 25 to 70 percent of all college students cheat according to William Shropshire's article "Of Being & Getting: Academic Honesty". The motivations behind why students cheat are the root of the problem of the dishonesty. Shropshire finds that the main reason students choose to cheat is they weigh out the benefits and see that it would help them to get ahead. Cheating has a low-risk factor and many students feel that cheating on one test will n...
  • Set Of Multiple Choice Questions Presents
    3,416 words
    Thomas Wyatt, 'They Flee From Me's et of Multiple-choice Questions Analyzing a Poem Sir Thomas Wyatt's sixteenth-century lyric 'They flee from me' is an enigmatic poem that pleases at least partly because it provides no final certainty about the situation it describes. Yet the poem, while in some respects indefinite and puzzling, is nevertheless quite specific in its presentation of a situation, particularly in the second stanza, and it treats a recognizable human experience -- that of having be...
  • High Risk For Rape
    617 words
    Violence and Women thought that our discussion went well. We had a small group of about six people but three of us were leaders so we had a lot to talk about. Each of us went around and asked one question because we did not have time to discuss them all. But that did not matter because the other leaders had similar questions to mine. I was able to retrieve different responses from the others in the group for three out of my four questions. My first question asked why rape was so much more common...
  • Student On Simple Words
    1,124 words
    Throughout the span of the past few weeks I have traversed the globe, visiting several countries and regions, only to realize that although new methods develop, language as a way of expressing ones self has remained the most effective. Despite this fact, language still has its pitfalls. Neil Postman, in his essay 'Defending Against the Indefensible,' ; outlines seven concepts that can be used to aid a student in better understanding the language as a means of communication. He describes how mode...
  • Question About Previous Drug Convictions
    384 words
    The millions of college students heading to campus next year will not include an estimated 28,000 who will be denied federal financial aid because they have admitted to a recent drug conviction. Along with those, another 12,000 more may also be denied federal assistance because they have failed to answer a question that has been placed on the new financial aid forms among the income and background inquiries. The roughly ten million students who fill out financial aid forms will face a crucial qu...
  • Student Change
    373 words
    Asking "why" is often a reasonable way to find out information. However, in some circumstances it limits the response and circumvents the objective for asking the question. When trying to resolve behavioral issues asking "why" tends to lead a student on a mental chase of cause and effect. While this process is generally helpful for critical thinking, it does not necessarily promote beneficial and on-going self-reflection. Watch someone when you ask "why" and you " ll often see her / his eyes loo...
  • School Is Hell
    441 words
    The comic strip "School is Hell" by Matt Groening is a snapshot of school life featuring an anthropomorphic rabbit. It is the kind of comic we can read and say to ourselves: "I have been there!" It is a great combination of humor and sarcasm about our time and extremely accurate interpretations of school. According to most of the students, school can be as bad as hell. Therefore, Groening chooses to represent students through a rabbit and he does a very good job by turning his well of wit to chi...

It will also, in the same way, provide a way for...
  • My Voice At Saint James
    1,591 words
    A Different Life Silence came in seventh grade. It was in seventh grade that I began the first of six years at a private school. In those six years I realized that it was not only I who had lost their voice; I was one among many who were denied the opportunity to speak. I distinctly remember the first time they betrayed me and informed me that my voice was invalid. A close friend of mine from elementary school wanted to attend and I was telling others about him- telling them how neat he was. The...
