o List three social factors that most impact the scenario.
o Justify your answer with an example from the scenario for each selected factor.
o Conclude by suggesting a viable solution to the scenario.
this is what i said. any suggestions??
The social factors that most impacted the scenario I found where low income, bullying, peer pressure, parent’s expectations and role playing, and high income. I think high income is a social factor because the parents that have a high income do not seem to know what to do with their money. All they know is to bully the other kids. An example of the high income is where there were rumors that three parents of the boys are renting a limousine. A solution for the renting the limousine is maybe the school can have a reward in order to get a limousine if you cannot afford one. For example the school could have where if the students are on the honor roll or maybe not failing a class, get a limousine ride. The school could hold fundraisers in order to get the money to rent a limousine. If the school does not want to do fundraisers maybe they can find a limousine company and see if they will donate their time to drive the limousine. Not everyone can afford to rent a limousine. An example of the low income is because several lower socioeconomic backgrounds said they will boycott the dance. They said they will boycott the dance because they cannot afford the coat-and-tie attire. If the students could not afford to the coat and tie attire they students could hold a clothing drive. The clothing drive could be where the community can donate any of their dresses and coats and ties to the school. The students that could not afford the suit and tie attire could also ask their friends and family members if they have any they can use. The lower income students also believe that who are in favor the coat and tie attire are only the “nerds” and “geeks.”
Your answer is o.k. But I vigorously disagree with your solution.
Sixth graders have no business renting tuxes and riding in limousines. That parental pressure forces them to grow up far far too fast.
I suggest that the administrators meet with the parents who are pushing this nonsense and ask them to back off. They could explain that it's against school policy and the dress code to wear such fancy clothes for dances for this age.
good thinking. thank you
You're welcome. :-)
