Carson Luke, a young boy with autism, shattered bones in his hand and foot after educators grabbed him and tried to shut him into a “scream room.” Kids across the country risked similar harm at least 267,000 times in just one school year.

How Colleges Flunk Mental Health

How Colleges Flunk Mental Health | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

One night in 2012, alone in his dorm room at Princeton University, Dan downed 20 Trazodone, his prescribed antidepressant. He had recently switched medication and was experiencing rapid mood swings; a fight with his girlfriend and a tense email exchange with a friend led him to overdose, which Dan says he knew was "ridiculous" even as he swallowed the pills.


Dan tried to make himself throw up the Trazodone but couldn't, so he went to Princeton's health center. They sent him to a nearby hospital, where doctors determined he didn't pose an imminent risk of harm to himself or others but kept him for three days to monitor his health. As Dan prepared to leave the hospital to attend a class, the director of student life left a voicemail message on his mother's cell phone: Dan had been evicted from his dorm room, banned from attending classes, and was prohibited from setting foot on campus....


According to the complaint Dan later filed with the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) alleging prejudice on the basis of a protected disability, mental depression - he believes Princeton treated him differently than a student with, say, mononucleosis or a broken leg - Princeton told Dan that if he didn't voluntarily withdraw, he would be forced to as soon as he had missed enough of the classes from which he had been banned. The school also told him that a mandatory withdrawal would be noted on his record and that his family wouldn't be refunded for the semester's tuition or room and board.

Smart, Poor Kids Are Applying to the Wrong Colleges | Slate

Smart, Poor Kids Are Applying to the Wrong Colleges | Slate | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

By Matthew Yglesias

 

"Each year, middle-class American high-school seniors with good grades go through a familiar ritual of the college application process. They file a bunch of applications—perhaps after visiting several schools—submitting test scores, grades, essays, and letters of recommendation. They apply to a “reach” school or two and a “safety” school or two along with some in the middle. The idea is to see where you can get in and then decide where you want to go after researching both the quality of the schools on offer and the actual financial cost of attending. It’s a system that’s a bit stressful and annoying, but it basically works. Students get matched with schools that roughly suit their level of academic preparation and people have a chance to shop around a bit for the myriad forms of financial aid that make college attendance feasible.

 

"But it doesn’t work for poor kids. It turns out that over and above all the other disadvantages one faces growing up poor in America, the majority of high-achieving kids from low-income backgrounds fail to apply to any selective colleges."

My Thoughts:

This article is about how many smart, poor students don't apply to colleges that they could get into and that could give them a better education and future. This effects me because I am a smart, poor student as well and it shows me that it is true, because I won't apply to colleges that I could from growing up poor and not ever having the oportunity to go and learn in a very great school. It doesn't help that I've never really had a want to learn but recently I have gained the want to learn and I beleive that it would be too late for me to get into a college that would get me further in my future, so I apply for colleges that I can get to easly and be able to pay for them.

Alec Anderson's curator insight, December 14, 2014 11:48 PM

This article talks about how the smart but kids with little to no money to pay for college are applying themselves to colleges that they can't afford. If they don't get any financial help and they get accepted to a college that is a lot of money then how do they afford to pay if off later. That is why these kids should apply to colleges where they know that they can get a good college education while still paying less money. Besides that they should be looking for scholarships and financial aid so that they aren't stressing over not being able to pay off all their student debt when they get out of college.
