According to the commonsense being a good student means, “ behaving and thinking in certain ways” (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kkJc7k2AyKB-Usl3pujiMAeWpfzmpZRK/view). Our society tends to value only certain ways of thinking and knowing. As a result of this, society expects teachers to shape students to be a reflection of these values. It seems as though the students that are privileged by this definition are the students who are able to fit within the expectations of the teacher. The students who are able to “say the right things in the rights ways” get the best mark and the approval of the teacher (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kkJc7k2AyKB-Usl3pujiMAeWpfzmpZRK/view).
Because of these common sense ideas, it becomes apparent how oppressive the current educational system can be. The ideas present also make it possible to see that our expectations of the behaviour of students within the classroom can create the binary of good student and bad student without considering the needs or nature of each student.
