Video Analysis After watching Why Student’s Hate School by Nikhil Goyal, I could not help but feel the angst that was felt by Nick Perez and the many students like him. His school failed to understand or work to understand Nick, his skills and/ or his interests. Because he was forced into different situations that tried to define what was wrong with him rather than figuring him out it led to his dislike and disregard for school in general which then resulted in him dropping out. Mr. Goyal takes multiple opportunities throughout the video to speak on Mr. Perez’s abilities as well as the self-taught, and quite lengthy, resume of talents. Throughout the high school career, students are given the opportunity to join an endless list of school clubs and associations that could have used the talents that Perez had. The school website, newspaper, computer labs, yearbook, computer science labs, or just a simple technology club could have all been wonderful prospects for Perez thus adding his interest and skills to something that is within his school environment. Throughout our years as students, and then as adults, we are always reminded that there are many ways to connect to others and they are mostly based on interest. This connection allows us to build ourselves as individuals as well as within social contexts, within relationships and ultimately, within society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
