The Pros And Cons Of Bayou High School

Bayou Academy is full of displeasingly wonderful rules and advisors. Many issues within the school are unsettling for students; The first issue is the technology or the lack of technology. The school started, this year, by saying everything would be done on the computer. They informed students at a very late date to buy a computer. Lack of communication is a great asset of Bayou. Some students, including one of my friends, were told so late that they could not purchase a computer. Once school started, particular books were online. My Spanish book was an online book. After three weeks of not being able to get on the internet, the teacher became frustrated. We started relying on three or four people’s computers who somehow got connected to the horrendous wireless internet. Slowly but surely no one could connect to the internet. It would take me 30 minutes to get

The basketball team this year wore mismatched uniforms because the school was too cheap to buy matching ones. They ordered only some tops and some shorts that did not match the other half of your uniform. They told us our complete uniform would be in soon. Well, basketball season is over. We never received our uniforms, because they did not order them. Bayou is the most unorganized school I have ever seen. NSA had matching uniforms, and we did not. They “ordered” them five days before the first game. Why? They have known for 50 years when basketball season started. The school is so prepared.
This school is a simulated prison. The best rule, the school randomly invented this week is, you can not have water in the classroom. The punishment for drinking water is Saturday school. I repeat, drinking water is a sin at Bayou. Kids can smart off to teachers, not come to class, and they do not receive any punishment; but I can not drink water. The school should not be able to make up a rule when they feel. The rules should come from the rule book, not mad

I tried out again in my junior and again I was cut from the team, but this time my shoes weren’t that expensive so I spared myself a little…

    Second, the Ewells can be characterized as disrespectful because they never come to school. The text states, “They come the first day every year then leave” (Lee 36). This explains that the Ewells are disrespectful because they do not bother to care about their education and they do not respect that getting an education will help them in the future in order to get better jobs than farming. The last reason that the Ewells can be considered disrespectful is that Burris swore and called the teacher names. In the text Burris says, “Ain’t no snot-nosed slut of a schoolteacher ever born c’n make me do nothin’” (Lee 37).…

    My sister had broken her arm at a church camp earlier that week and our insurance did not cover the hospital bill. My family was already struggling financially as it was. With the extra expenses we had, my parents income had come short of being able to cover the electric bill on time. Since I was still a child, it did not bother me as much that there were no lights in the house, or that we had to go over to my aunt 's house to shower. It is now a critical necessity for most of society to have electricity, gas, and water in their…

    Prior to college, I could perform poorly in a class and it would be irrelevant to me as I had no cognizance of the importance of education. I missed on average about twenty to twenty five days of school per year. Only about a tenth of those days missed were days I actually could not come to school. Going to school was the bane of my existence, I simply did not want to be there. How I managed to graduate on-time, I do not know.…

    As I said before my home school was one of the worst schools that sent students to the vocational school. My homeschool disowned the vocational students, we were never invited to any assemblies, sport games, or any other events.

There were a couple days were ever other student would be gone because of homeschool events and only the students from my homeschool wasn’t invited so we had to stay back. What was great though about this division though was a…

    Along with the lack of nutrition, many students refuse to eat their lunch and end up wasting millions of dollars by simply throwing it in the trash. In some cases, schools donate the lost food and turn them into feed for farms. Also, as a result of the release of the act, many students have refused to pay for their lunch and either do not eat, or they simply bring in their own meals. This is a good thing to do, though, as the meals provided are not nutritious by themselves. When students decide to bring their lunches to school, they can make sure to get both enjoyable and nutritious food items.…

    For two whole years I let my grades diminish on account of the fact I made a mistake. One, simple mistake. I had failed my teachers, my parents, and myself. From then on. I would go to school, wouldn’t eat breakfast, or lunch, or sometimes even dinner at home.…
