Idea/Solution: Instead of home room in the schools, let the students learn about hospitality. The way I see it is why not make students learn how to
take care of one another and treat each other better, rather than just sit in homeroom class knocking off. Yes I know some students are productive,
but the majority are just playing around. Being a substitute teacher in the past, I know the scenario all too well. So here is an opportunity to
show some possible improvements on how our youths treat each other. Instead of homeroom during school lunches, make all the students learn to be
waiters and waitresses and take care of their fellow classmates. Think of all the problems this could possibly solve.
Let's start off with each individual learning some respect, manners, and courtesy to their fellow peers. Refer to this
... I really don't think everyone understands what exactly it is a wait
person goes through in doing their job. All the diverse cultures and personalities that we deal with day in and day out. Learning to adapt to said
cultures and personalities as well, which in turn would help out with understanding each individuals needs.
Being a fine dining waiter I am considered one of the elite in my field. When approaching a table, within the first few seconds of talking to them I
know what their needs are as far as leaving them alone or being personable with them the whole time. Having regulars, I know if they are vegetarians,
have nut allergies, have a gluten free diet, ect., multi tasking skills improve, people skills improve, I mean the list goes on.
There is a movie called "Waiting"
that a few guests have voiced their concerns about when talking to
them. Mainly worrying about what the waiters are doing being closed quarters with their food and drinks, but have since realized after watching that
movie that the way they treat their waiter brings about a more relaxed feel about others handling their food and drinks. Many have admitted being
complete jerks with their waiters and have since changed their way of thinking and treat them better now. Hmmm maybe this could aid in all the
bullying going on and who knows what other problems it may aid in solving. When kids move from middle school is usually when you have a few schools
from different sides of the tracks, so to say, come together in the high schools. So maybe middle school is where maybe this should start to take
place. Now since 15% or higher tips cannot be given, they instead can be given different color vouchers which would designate a 15% tip for good
service, 18% tip for better service or 20%+ tip for excellent service. The school in turn can break it down to how they would like to reward the
students for all these tip vouchers the way the school feels fit, maybe even have a vote from the students for their rewards. The incentives alone
would make students want to work for a goal of treating others good to make good tip vouchers.
Just an idea that has been on my mind for years now and seeing all the violence in schools as of lately, not to mention a lot of other problems with
how we treat each other within our country, don't see how it could possibly make things worse.
Things are only getting worse in our countries schools and there doesn't seem to be anybody coming up with solutions to help out with the problems.
So I come to this community with the expectation of either adding to it, or coming up with a better solution. Feel free to add to the fine tuning of
this idea to make it work. We have enough people seeing the problems, but not enough people helping with the creating of solutions.
