Why Should Middle School Pupils Wear School Uniforms? - 551 words
I think pupils at middle schools should wear school uniforms because school uniforms are homogeneous and show no difference concerning the families economic. School uniforms might help to reduce violence in middle schools, because middle school pupils, who wear school uniforms often feel more as a unit and get along better among each other. Apart from these reasons I also feel, that school uniforms help pupils to represent their school and to separate them from other schools and pupils. School uniforms are homogeneous and make no difference whether a pupils family is prosperous or not. Usually, especially in middle schools, it is easy to tell by pupils clothes if the pupils background is aff ...

Multiple Intelligence - 1,400 words
Harold Gardner (1983) of Harvard University has identified several kinds of intelligence people possess. Particularly, this finding poses significant implications in classroom instructions. More often than not, children and even adults (who are grown up children) are labeled negatively if and when they manifest either a very fast, slow or no understanding at the entire subject matter.

Single Sex Classrooms - 589 words
Your article introduces us to the new idea of having single sex classrooms as well as single sex schools. This examines the experiment that has been implemented in Mountain View California where they recently opened a middle school for girls. This school is primarily geared towards higher levels of math and science, which in the past have been viewed as male dominant subjects. Taking measures this far is just ridiculous to separate girls from boys. This not only creates an issue for their futures, but is also unnatural and detracts from what could be learned in a coed classroom. You argue single sex classrooms give girls an added sense of confidence over their male counterparts. If these gir ...

More Than Camping - 827 words
Are teenager really different these days? I mean I was once a teenager, I must know. All I can remember about being a teenager were that bagging cloths were in, playing sports, and getting good grades for mom and dad. Life seemed simple, going to school and some mischief here there, but what I really wonder was is what kids do, feel, and think these days. Hoping to find some answers I attended a Hmong Seventh-Day Adventist Church camp meeting. The camp meeting includes about 30 teenagers with a good balance of both boys and girls. The age group that I focused on was 15 to 18 year olds. One good aspect of this study was that all the kids were Hmong, in which I was all the more interested in. ...

... dropped rapidly and 600 students have been given detention and 200 suspended. This did exactly the opposite of what uniforms are suppose to accomplish. If policy makers are serious about finding solutions to the problem of school violence, maybe they should ask the real experts: the students themselves. The ACLU recently conducted a series of focus groups with high school students asking them what would help reduce violence in school. Uniforms did not make the list. Their suggestion: 1. Since school violence mimics that of society at large, schools should seriously confront and discuss issues of racism and cultural conflict. 2. School entrances should be secured. 3. More extracurricular ...

Gun Controll Misc - 1,228 words
With the growing number of reports, on television, about violent crimes at school, it is no wonder that President Clinton is pushing for more gun control. Although the number of violent crimes committed in schools is far less than the number committed at home, the president feels that stricter gun laws need to be in effect. In the light of the recent shootings at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado, there have been serious increases in the number of proposals to help regulate gun use. I do not think that it is the guns that we need to control, but the people. In the last several years there have been major legislative proposals to try and regulate the sale, purchase, transportation, ...

School To Work System - 446 words
There is a new system called S.T.W (school-to-work) introduced by Marc Tucker, the president of the National Center of Education and the economy. This scheme however, is not totally valid or at least this is the case for Phyllis Schlafly, the president of the eagle forum and the publisher of the monthly Education Reporter since 1986. The two ideas will be introduced clearly later. Tucker wants to put a new master "restructuring" plan for more than 50% of public school children. The plan is to train children in specific jobs to serve the work force and the global economy. The job matching process is supervised by labor market boards and computer assistance. Moreover, STW regulations and laws ...

Kiss - 374 words
Eyes are said to be the doorway to the soul. Lips, then, are the passageway to the mind. Lips react to the minds thoughts in so many different ways. They can show happiness with a smile, express its thoughts and feelings, possibly with words of love, and show its intentions, sometimes with a kiss. Kissing is the first physical expression of serious attraction between two people. They may hold hands, or they may dance closely, but most of the time the relationship can't progress until they kiss. I don't mean a quick peck or a brief glancing kiss, but a full-body-contact type where each is embracing the other, where breathing becomes difficult, and where the heart rate becomes erratic. The kis ...

The astronomical amount of money being spent in the entertainment field of athletics has dictated a win-at-all-costs mentality that has trickled all the way down to negatively affect our youngest athletes - the prepubescent. The athletic world has forever been exploiting our youth as a source of athletic potential, sacrificing the health, safety and welfare of these child-athletes to satiate the intense nationalistic pride of the country and more dishearteningly in the name of the Almighty Dollar. This has caused coaches and athletes to take drastic measures ...
