    I am going to start out by apologizing because this is going to be long. But I believe everything I say is worthy of saying so I hope you don’t just give up and stop reading. I am a person that doesn’t particularly like school. Something about being stuck in a classroom for seven hours and force fed facts I don’t always want to learn just has me counting down the days till summer. So are there things I would change about the school system? Yes. Is there an aspect I wouldn’t change about the school system? Honestly, the only thing I wouldn’t change is the music trips we go on.

We get the chance to be a part of a music group and travel to all these fun places and play in front of people other than just our parents. Last year we got the chance to play in Disneyland and honestly it was the trip of lifetime. That aspect I wouldn’t change for anything. But that’s not really educational since these trips happen in the summertime. I’m sure that’s what you’re thinking and I’m thinking it too. How would I change education at GCA? That’s a heavy question. First of all, our school has a lot of ridiculous and unnecessary policies that hinder my education. Now this isn’t a battle of the dress code, but if you are going to make me sit in the office and miss class because my jacket says Newport Beach instead of WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL with a quote and pictures then that hinders my…

As a result, advanced placement (AP) courses have allowed for gifted high school students to participate at the collegiate level. However, with increasing amounts of AP courses and their incentives of earning college credit in high school has constructed a false sensation that students are benefiting greatly, when in reality, they’re causing massive amounts of stress for little…

Inquisitiveness can be a good thing, but when the curiosity of kids, and especially teens, is paired with the wide array of possibilities on the internet, a potentially dangerous situation may be created. In the article “The Undercover Parent,” Harlan Coben writes about the hazards of the internet…

I agree with Carol Weston and here respond to “The Undercover Parent” written by Harlan Coben. The use of the spyware when…

    Salt of the Earth was a theatrical drama directed by Herbert J. Biberman. The film was based on the actual strike against the Empire Zinc Mine in New Mexico. Its genre is a social realism and it was based on actual events. The movie has great ties to Malcolm Gladwell’s book David and Goliath, Underdogs, Misfits, and the art of battling giants. For instance just like Martin Luther King Jr. and his friends they had to overcome a giant in Sheriff Connor (Gladwell). The setting of the plot takes…

    I am going to be talking about whether it is good to use spyware or not. The authors place on spyware is that parents should use spyware but that maybe some parents might use it to just see what they're doing and invade their privacy. My opinion on spyware is that I agree with the author when he says parents should use spyware. I also disagree with the author when he says that some parents might use spyware to see everything their children are doing or chatting with. So I agree and disagree with…
