The secondary school is where students spend an average of 5 hours per day, which enables them to socialize and to learn how to communicate better. But there are a number of controversial issues when it comes to the secondary schools. It is important to notice that the secondary school is associated with adolescence and things are lived with a very high intensity during this period.
An example of such thing is related to the student-teacher relationship. It is a common fact that this relationship should be one based on mutual respect. The student should know that the teacher's role is to help him or her to learn easier the secrets of a discipline, but at the same time, the teacher can be a very good friend. But studies have shown the fact that teachers get to make friends only with some students and sometimes they pick their favorites. The other children who are not on the list of the teacher’s favorite students may feel neglected and rejected.
So it is better for a teacher to maintain a relationship based on objectivity. Regarding the personal problems of students, in modern schools, such as those from Dubai, there is a counselor who is always at the disposal of students when they feel the need to talk about things that give them anxiety or make them nervous.
Another good example of a controversial topic is wearing uniforms in the secondary school. Teens feel the need to show their own style and express themselves through it and, sometimes the uniforms are seen as an obstacle to this fact. But, also, the uniforms have a very important role. They help overcome the barriers of economical differences between children. Thus, those who do not have enough money to buy expensive clothes will no longer feel embarrassed.
Most of modern secondary schools from Dubai have good looking uniforms because the teachers reached the conclusion that they are very useful. Also, it Dubai, in order to help children to achieve a better education, the more and more teachers use non-formal educational methods based on examples and some other interesting activities that also help children discover their talents.
