So for today’s class we discussed about the social context of students here in Colombia. We had to ask beforehand a student from highscool or primary school about their social context, their school needs and their personal needs. If they had enough resorces at school and at home, and if there were any particular cases such as bullying and family violence.
By our own research and the one our classmates did we discobered that there are maaany problems here. To begin with schools don’t always have a good infrastructure. walls, roofs and seats are not always in their best state. Not all of them have this problems, privite schools are usually better than publics but they also have problems such as bullying. Another problem is that some schools are placed in dangerous places which put children in danger. And finally something important that I noticed is that teachers don’t know what to do when they are in front of violent situations.
There are so many problems in public and private schools that I feel overwelmed with the question of “What would you do to solve those problems” First I think I’ve got to know how the sistem works (which I don’t know now) and them see what is in my hands that I can start changing. But I’m sure I will be able to help in some way, I want to give my best for those children, that’s just the way I feel when I see the poor situations in which they are.

Today I whatched a video about the origin of racism in the United States. In these video they mentioned that in public schools they don’t have extracurricular activities and teachers were not well paid. So it occured to me that If I was a teacher in a school in a similar situation I would like to voluntary teach art classes in english as an extracurricular activity, no matter if they pay me or not I would like to do it for them. I don’t know (as I said before) how exactly a school works and who takes decitions here but it would be wonderful to give these children some joy in creativity.
This is the end of my entry, thaks.
