Dear Parent of High School students, I know you don’t think you don’t need my advice, but as an old enough man, I want offer you a guidance about how online presence may have a negative impact to your child in the future. First of all, help your child to understand the purpose of social media account what they hope to gain from posting certain things or what their account are communicating. for example, tell them not to share photos or videos on social media which is they may regret later.

An open letter to the parents of high school students Dear parents: The Internet and social media provides the young students with rang of benefits such as communication with others ,making friendship and sharing information , but the negative side comes when these students post an appropriate comments or even some of them they go further than that and their post become racism . The students in this age their brain is not mature, they do not realize the consequences of their comments would cost them their dream college admission. An example for that would be Kyle Kashuv (Harvard had rescinded admission to Parkland shooting survivor over racist comments he made two years ago by Kelly Mclaughlin). Young students should be monitor and certain web should be prohibited. It is parent’s...

Dear Parents, I am writing this letter to appeal the Parents of High School student to stay aware and take action in monitoring their children’s online activity because that can impact on the college admission. Nowadays, we live in the Internet and Smartphone time where information goes fast. When people post public videos or public contents on social media. It is immediately available on the world wide, and all people have access to the contents. Now young people use a lot the social media and they have an unlimited access to internet. But they don’t always use it in the right way. For example, some people use social media to post bad contents like racist content, misogyny content and other. They are not aware about the consequences. That can have consequences for their future for...

Dear Students, I am writing to respectfully make you aware of social media, and how we have to use it. We have to be careful when we post something at the internet, we have always ask ourselves some questions; how this post is going to affect our lives? Who is going to read or watch? Sometimes bad things can happen as a result of what was posting. I read a article about Kyle Kashuv, 18, survivor of shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Portland, he had made online some racist and vituperative comments two years before his application at Harvard, because of the comments Kyle Kashuv was not accepted to study at Harvard. Students, if you feel doubts about what to do online or what you do not post, I recommend you talk with your teacher or parents...

Dear High School Students, I know that you do not like to be sermonized, but I still wanted to share a very important information about the dangers of social networks. Today in the era of Smartphones, information travels at high speed, suddenly when an event happens, everyone is quickly updated through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. You must be aware that everything you read, whatever you write in the Web remains visible to a wide audience and even if you think you have deleted the content, you are not safe that someone one who saw your article did not save it somewhere. I share this information because it is urgent to understand that anything you can write can turn against you and have consequences in your future. Take the example of student Kyle Kashuv, 18, who...

To the collective teaching body of primary schools, As teachers, you possess a role of developing the young minds of our future, a heavy task to fill. It is through education that you the adults ensure that the younger generation are prepared culturally, morally, and intellectually to renew our ‘common world’. This exercise of adult authority is indispensable for the running of an effective system of education; thus, education must involve the passing on of cultural experience and knowledge to the next generation, something that cannot happen without authority. After reading “Wasted: Why Education Isn’t Educating”, I have found, though, that adult authority can have a negative influence on education, with many educators infantilizing their students- treating students with too much care...

Dear educators for the future, I learned that there is a problem among many children in the United States with learning disabilities, and it seems more and more kids are prescribed medication to deal with these problems. The United States consumes about 85% of the world’s Ritalin which is the most common medicine to be given to ADHD patients to treat their issues. While the drug may help the child or patient temporarily, it also has side effects because it stimulates the brain in similar ways like cocaine which may cause undesirable changes in the brain over time. The big thing we value in this country once a child has turn 4 or 5 is their education. When they enter school, you are the first teacher they will meet and learn from other than their parents and family since they were...

In no way do I have any experience as a teacher and in no way do I want to tell you, as educated and experienced professionals, how to do your job. I would simply like to give a glimpse of my perspective as an introverted student. Although no one is solely introverted or extroverted, people who lean more towards being introverted undoubtedly have different needs than extroverts in terms of learning. In contrasts to extroverts, introverts tend to feel drained by social interaction; therefore, they tend to behave more reserved, passive, and quiet. It may seem that the traits that make students introverted are more of a character flaw than a strength. Susan Cain believes that it’s quite the opposite though, just like how more extroverted people usually have the strengths of being...

To the Admissions Office it may concern, In reflection of the recently past college application season, I have encountered a plethora of bitter emotions in regards to college acceptances and denials, many directed towards the admissions departments and officers who held applicants’ hopes and dreams, and many my own. However, in my introspection, I have come to the conclusion that I was actually to blame the whole time, and would like to issue an open apology for any misgivings I had in our American collegiate admissions system. I would like to begin by apologizing for my 3.89 unweighted grade point average, and 1520 point SAT score. Choosing to suffer from mental illness in the 8th grade and receiving a 79 in French 2 is certainly a valid reason for why I am not...

Socialism is based on equality, which in itself is a false-hood. The matter of fact here is that, no-one is truly equal. Some people can do jobs others physically can’t, and vice versa. That is why socialism, “which its goal is to have collective living and working arrangements, equal distribution of wealth, and equality of power”, doesn’t work. It kills the economy, creates governmental dependency, and lowers the quality of living. This is what George Orwell wrote in his allegory, Animal Farm, and the base of Ayn Rand’s novel, Anthem. There is one thing that everybody has, the fact that they are them-self. This fact brings pride to them, a pride of self, or selfishness. Which, very few things, and or people, can get in the way of. That’s where governmental dependency comes...
