How the School System Affects a Student's Potential
The limitations of the human brain are often thought to become restricted due to laziness, which is not always the case. The limitations might possibly be due to how systems of all kinds test the mental productivity of the brain. For example, the way the school system all over the United States works does not allow students to show their full potential. Schools all over the nation require various amounts of assessments to be taken that allows them to get accepted to a university, or even to graduate high school. But is the school system implementing the most effective way to give students an education? Now more than ever, we are seeing teachers just get through curriculums, and students just trying to pass instead of learning.
Gentrification: My Take
Gentrification has affected almost all people of all ethnic backgrounds in the United States. The most popular to date has been in the hispanic communities located in Los Angeles, California. Gentrification is a very controversial topic in 2017-18 due to the recent changing of areas such as Echo Park, Highland Park, and now Boyle Heights. Although gentrification is an action with good intentions, it is also one being frowned upon. The uprising of gentrification has caused lots of tension between people in communities affected by gentrification. This action has forced many people to move out of their apartments or sell their homes because they cannot afford to pay for the now expensive rent. This has created lots of division and conflict in the communities of certain areas and the people around them.
