In a 5 paragraph essay answer the following prompt with a well-developed thesis and evidence from the text.
What does this story tell us about the inadequacy of ordinary schools to deal with students’ problems? “I got A in English and never say nuffin’, do nuffin’”[p. 49], Precious says. Precious’s principal in effect tells her teacher to give up on her, saying, “Focus on the ones who can learn”[p. 37]. Is this an understandable or forgivable attitude? How would you describe Mr. Wicher and his teaching methods? Is he merely a coward or is he trying his best?
