Quickwrite: Last Train Home

Do you agree or disagree with the decisions that Qin's parents made? What would you have done differently?


Via Joel Leagans
Emanuel Villafana's insight:

I agree with the parents that they work hard so they can provide their children with a better life and she instead wants to have her own money and blow it off on useless things like a hair-do? And also just to leave her brother just like that then curse at her Dad and then still do it? And for that I personally believe she earned that beating.

The parents are correct for having left to get a job to give quin a better education. The parents had to make their own personal sacrifices in order to let quin move ahead in life. But quin not liking farm life and having no parents around to raise her goes against her parents will and leaves the farm in order to get a job for herself in a factory.

I think the choice the parents made to leave there children to go work in the city to make enough money for Qin and her brother to go to school was the right  decision. However if it was up to me i would have tried to make enough to  move my family closer to me, so i would be able to see them more often

i agree with the decisions the parents made, the only reason they moved was because the kids could have a better education and a better life. but they cant just come after a year and visit their kids and expect everything to be ok. i would do the same thing if i was in the same situation as Qin's family is in.

QW: Church and State

Mr. Leagans puts a copy of the Ten Commandments up in his room.  His principal asks him to take it down saying that it is a violation of church and state.  Mr. Leagans disagrees and believes that the Ten Commandments will help provide his students with moral guidance.  What do you think Mr. Leagans should do?

Emanuel Villafana's insight:

Well Mr. Leagans shouldn't put it up mainly because some other kids might not agree to that. And to add on to that conflicts may be started up from that. And some kids might have some problems concerning the religion because of past effects. And even if I am catholic i strongly disagree with this......... so yeah...........................

I agree with Lisha Patel's comment because if no student is offended by the amendments then it should stay up. There should not be a problem if no student is offended.
Justice The Bryant's curator insight, April 22, 2014 3:52 PM

I think Mr. leagans should take it down , since he could get into trouble over it. For example a Jewish kid could get offended by the copy of the 10 commandments and tell his parent. The next day they could tell the principal cause and effect. So unless he wants all of that drama i suggest he takes it down

Mr.Leagans should keep the copy of the ten commandments because some students need guidance and that may be a reminder to them to be good. And may help students think about their actions. Mr.Leagans should also tell his students to think about the copy and just try to understand it.
