A young boy, Dickie, turns twelve and is required to take a mandatory government I. You would be half right. Sophomores take this exam as part of their graduation requirement and from 3rd grade to the 8th, they take a Measurement of Student Progress to ensure they are on tract to pass the HSPE. Before the WASL…. There was no before the WASL. When the cold war ground to a halt, we had given up competing with the Soviets and only glanced up long enough to see Asian and Western European children outpacing our own American posterity. Right then we realized how so lacking we were at academic discipline that we scrambled for a myriad of ways to truly improve the decline of the American education system.

Let there be no stigma attached to the word 'insane,' to the word 'asylum,' to the words 'insane asylum'! For the asylum is the haven of mental health Mental health is an incredibly important and increasingly salient topic in our current society. Kids are being put on ADHD medications, having a therapist is a fairly common thing, etc. And many people believe that we are overmedicating, overdiagnosing, and that people should just get over their issues. Now, I'm sure there are many improperly diagnosed mental illnesses out there, and there is controversy over whether ADHD is something we should be medicating in children, but if a treatment or medication genuinely improves someone's life, should they not take advantage of it?
Post a Comment. Tuesday, September 30, SQ. Should that person test under a 50, it means they are sane. However, should they test over a 50, it means they are insane, and should be institutionalized accordingly. Speakie and his statistically sane constituents also operate the asylums in which those who fail the test reside. From the perspective of the reader, the test, perhaps counterintuitive to its purpose, does not seem to be an accurate way of determining the sanity of a person, because the majority of people who take the test fail.
Great analysis here, but what does it all mean? What do you think the story ultimately argues or expresses? Once again, Le Guin writes an absolutely remarkable story. I think that one of the most important aspects of the story is the narrators voice. The narrator interacts with, and is in contact with the main protagonist of the story throughout the piece. She watches him from the beginning to the end, and her perspective is the one that readers are given; her idea of how the story played out is the version of the story that readers are given.
