Education is one of the main pillars of countries. Many societies have made great progress by giving importance to the field of education. It is a world wide known fact that educated people make a undeniable contribution to the development of their countries. Also, education plays a significant role in transmitting accumulated knowledge, customs and values from one generation to the next. On the other hand, education has certain malfunctions in some stages of its framework.
In this article, I ant to talk about special education for the students who lack of some learning abilities and the students who are given to special interests by educators. I want to begin with a book that I read before: House Rules by Jodi Picoult. This book tells a special child with Asperger’s syndrome from a mother’s tongue. Asperger’s syndrome is a kind of autism and Jacob has its characteristics. For instance, structure is important for Jacob, that’s why his mom created house rules: 1 . Tell the truth 2. Brush your teeth 3.
Take care of your brother and so on. One day, Jess Ogi’vy, caretaker of Jacob, is found dead and nobody knows who really did it and all the suspicions on the boy with autism and nobody thinks the matter between Justice and illness. This book affected me deeply and I wanted to share it with you. My another point is the giving no importance to the students’ interests and abilities, and the fact that they are being misdirected are incredible mistakes because these really affect their future career and life in a negative way.
Especially, this issue hasn’t been taken into consideration eriously by experts or other authorized persons in our country. People around the students should be aware of the fact that every individual has his/her own interests and skills, and they should leave them kids alone about what they want to be and revealing their predominant attributes. All in all, I wanted to attract your attention and make people more sensitive towards these issues. Also, I wanted to emphasize the roles of parents and teachers about determining students’ future career and development of them in their interests.
