This week in ECS 210 we examined another chapter by Kumashiro “Preparing Teachers for Crisis: A Sample Lesson”. By reading his personal stories about M and N in the first section it can be concluded that according to common sense a “good student” is someone who is punctual, hygienic, quiet, who pays attention in class, does their work, doesn’t disturb anyone, participates fully and hands their assignments in on time. It is also someone who never questions what they are learning, they just go along with it. The students that are privileged by this definition are those who meet all these expectations. The problem is not many people are able to meet these high standards, for example, children who suffer from various challenges (mental or physical), or children who come from culturally diverse backgrounds where those values aren’t “common sense” as well as children who have support and resources at home. By following these common sense ideas it is impossible to see/understand/believe in the different types of students and their unique learning styles. It also marginalizes the voices of minorities, especially those who face learning strategies because they are labelled as bad students. It is also impossible to see discrimination within our society because “good” students are supposed to never question what they are learning which often can have prejudiced undertones.
