The “Good” Student

According to the definition of common sense, the good student is the student who shows up everyday ready to learn. These students have previous knowledge that they learn at home. The good student also has supportive parents when it comes to their learning. This student sits quietly in class, has a good behaviour and only talks when called upon. This student follows all the rules.

Students who are privileged by this common sense would be students who have white privileges. These students are middle-class and have a mom and a dad who have a good relationship with their child. The “good” student is not a student of diversity.

This concept is impossible because I believe there is no such thing as a “good student.” There may be students in your class of different culture and different learning styles. There also will always be students who have behaviour problems that cannot be controlled. Teachers have to adjust to the student rather then the student adjusting to the teacher.
