Are you in to self control? Is self-control good for you?
I am against labeling. I have been for a long time. Not food labeling but overall labeling. I'm still upset that it starts as soon as we enter the public school system and sometimes earlier. I am against students being in a box that if often takes them a life time to get out of. He/she is gifted. He/she isn't. He/she is popular so go stand with the socials. He/she isn't popular so go stand with the nerds. People learn at different speeds. Some take longer to learn something and never forget it. Others pick up things right away. We all have a niche that we are brilliant in. Shouldn't the schools take less time labeling and more time finding out where the student is smart in? Albert Einstein was an idiot according to one teacher. Thomas Edison was sent home from school by a third grade teacher because he was to stupid to learn. I've told the story before how a seventh grade teacher thought I should be put in a school for what was then called the now socially unacceptable word, retarded. I would do the assignments and not hand them in. They were to easy and thinking I had them wrong because tests just can't be easy and not wanting rejection I didn't hand them in. Before moving me to the dreaded school they gave me an IQ test. Second highest in the State of Oregon for my age group. What if my parents hadn't insisted on a IQ test before moving me to the school, what would have my life been? I would have never went to college. I would have never become a certified public accountant. I would have wasted a life way because one teacher put me in a box. Don't you think it is time for schools to quit labeling? If you aren't sure check out the following article:
The article mostly talks about self-labeling but being labeled by others would have the same effect. At least in my opinion it would.
