61: Personal Writing: First Day at Oxford High School
Personal Writing: First Day at Oxford High School My first day at Oxford High School was wonderful. The memory was vivid in my imagination. Growing up, I thought I would never make it to the “big hill” where the high school was located. I had gone through the Oxford School System in the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade, but I was in for a surprise in high school. The bright, yellow sun arose and peeked ...
62: Excellence In Education
... for. The interpretation of the term excellence is, however, less obvious. How do we regard excellence? Is it the college bound student with a broad liberal arts education? Is it the student who graduates high school trained in a specific trade? Many in the field of education cannot come to an agreement on how our schools can best achieve excellence for and from our students. One of the many authorities who ... students, Ebel does briefly describe his idea of a good teacher . Good teachers, according to Ebel, have learned from past experiences. Such teachers provide immediate recognition and rewards for student achievement. Ebel in praising the school s role in moral education, calls teachers models of excellence and humanity (4). Ebel discusses moral education as another of education s special missions, second only to the teaching of useful knowledge. The author defines ... our efforts . Another authority on the subject of excellence in schools is Diane Ravitch. Like Ebel, Ravitch, has suggested that schools must retain their traditional goals, while varying in method. In her article A Good School , Ravitch mentions Ron Edmonds, of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, who provides an outline of what makes an effective school: Edmonds identified schools where academic achievement seemed to be independent of pupils social ...
63: School Prayer
School Prayer A very controversial widespread issue today is the right to have prayer in public schools. The proposed amendment reads: “To secure the people’s right to acknowledge God according to the dictates of conscience ... to pray and to recognize their belief, heritage or traditions on public property, shall not be infringed. The government shall not require any person to join in the prayer or religious activity, initiate or designate school prayers, discriminate against any religion, or deny equal access to benefit on account of religion. (AVSP)” This would permit but not mandate school prayer. I think that the government should be focused on the school’s academics, not what religion they are to study. The proposed amendments would cause nothing but trouble considering that there would be ...
64: HighSchool Vs College
... Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.” Johann Von Goethe wrote the previous quote. He was trying to emphasize that everything in life brings about change. Attending high school and college is a decision that brings about consistency as well as change. Even though they both serve the purpose of educating, there are great differences and similarities in the high school and college experience. Honors and advance placement classes in secondary school prepare one for the challenge of higher educational opportunities in college. On the other hand, the freshmen experience in college is much more challenging. One must dedicate much more time to his or her ...
65: Advertiser Influence on the Media: Censorship and the Media
... those newspapers caved in to those pressures . Amidst the corporate battle for control and influence of media outlets lies Blue Springs, Missouri, population 49,290 . This Midwestern community is home to Blue Springs South High School and the Jaguar Journal. The student reporters at the Jaguar Journal wanted their newspaper to contain articles that are issue-oriented and substantive works of journalism. To that end the students chose to conduct an investigation on the availability of cigarettes to minors. However, the administrators at Blue Springs South High School believed that this article was inappropriate material to be printed in the Jaguar Journal. Actually, the administrators had caved to pressure by two large grocery stores, who the article implicated as selling cigarettes to minors, located in Blue Springs. The two grocery stores were the biggest financial and in-kind contributors to the school. Blue Springs South High School officials sent their students a terrible message: Protecting business is more important than obeying the law. This paper will discuss the effect of advertiser influence on news reporting in ...

67: The Education System
... in my country is different from U.S education; mostly it is similar to France education system. The education system in my country is very restricted and it is not easy to graduate from high school. I have been attending US colleges for almost four years now. I finished high school in my country and never get a chance to attend college in there.

68: Personal Writing: Exchange Student in Japan
... mixed emotions that I really did not know how to feel so I will just say that I was excited. At the airport I met my best friend and two other friends of mine from school. We would all be traveling together, most all the time. The only things that would really be different would be where we lived and who we would live with. As the flight, Northwest number 69 ... I encountered on my trip. As we neared the home, I began to feel tired and this day ended fast, almost as quickly as it began. The next morning we awoke early to go to school. This was a very exciting day for me, because I would get to meet my friends from America at school, and I would get to meet new people from Japan. In the way that American Children take the bus, Japanese children take the train. We got on a train at around 7:35, switched ...
69: ... real irony when you consider what Steinbeck says about banks in The Grapes of Wrath- but she changed her mind when John began spending hours in his room scrawling stories and writing articles for the school paper. Later in life, Steinbeck denied that his family served as a model for the Joads in The Grapes of Wrath. But both families understood well the meaning of family unity. As a boy, John ... growers. You can tell that John must have loved the out-of-doors. Otherwise, how could he have set four novels and several stories in the lush countryside where he spent his youth? During high school (1915-19) he worked as a hand on nearby ranches. There he saw migrant workers, men without futures, breaking their backs all day for paltry wages and at night throwing away their cash in card ... Steinbeck's greatest novel. It won the Pulitzer Prize and has been translated into such languages as French, German, and Japanese. Steinbeck's frank portrayal of real people excited readers everywhere. Although some libraries and school boards banned the book, it became a bestseller almost instantly and was made into an Academy Award-winning movie in 1940. The book was rarely attacked on artistic grounds, but some people called it ...

70: A Study of Public School Choice
A Study of Public School Choice Parents and students are very unhappy with the public education offered to them by the government of United States. 51 percent of respondents to the latest Gallup Poll rated their community's public schools ... federal agencies create initiatives, recommendations and policies in hopes of meeting the public’s demand for a system that can effectively educate our students. Private and government-formed commissions continually present proposals ranging from additional school days to increased discipline. A current favorable prospect is the idea of public school choice through vouchers. Public education, a monopoly-like system, generally dictates the specific school that each child will attend within his or her district. Under new choice plans, parents would gain the power to ...
