There are plenty of students who love to stay clued up on politics, news and general world information. But it’s hard to stay on top of things when all news channels only seem to focus on a certain popular aspect of the country. Lately every news channel, social media news site and news website have been focusing on Donald Trump’s victory with the elections. Hundreds of Donald Trump jokes, memes and quotes are flooding the internet and every news channel seems to have some interesting piece of gossip on America’s latest president. And yes, they have a good point because very few people expected Trump to ever run for president and since he won the elections he have been making some big changes in the world. But there are plenty of other information that students also need to stay clued up on. Here are some of the major world news feeds that you probably missed out on since everyone started talking about the new president.
America’s relationship with Turkey is more fragile than ever before
For the past sixty years, relationships between America and Turkey have been quite well but things are quickly starting to change. The Foundation for Defense of Democracies have always been keeping a close eye on all of the countries close relationships and is trying to keep the peace as far as possible. Recent studies have shown that Turkey governments have started growing animosity against America and the FDD is even advising to move military basis currently in Turkey out of the country to protect soldiers against possible hostility. The news affects you as a student because if things get serious it could greatly affect the possibility for students to move to Turkey or work in Turkey.
Life is getting more dangerous for students across the globe
It seems that student life is becoming more and more dangerous all over the world. More students are starting to commit aggressive and violent actions against fellow students in our modern supposedly more peaceful lifestyle. School violence is on the rise, putting more students and teacher’s lives in danger and more bully situations are being captured on camera than ever before. The degree of the violent actions between students is also increasing. From extremely aggressive bullying to life threatening actions are starting to surface more and more.
There’s a constant war going on about your literary classes
Some historical literary books like “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by Harper Lee and the all classic “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is causing huge debates in school systems due to some of the racial slurs used in the books. The novel; “To Kill a Mockingbird” have been removed and reinstated 13 times around the country and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is one of the most frequently banned books in the country. But these literary works only seem to come back due to community arguments that claim that these are timeless stories and deserve a place in American history. We only can wonder how the constant changes in banning and reinstating literature will affect student grades.
