Apathy which is the lack of interest, Kenwood Academy was used to see how strong the level of Apathy is with the students when it comes to their schoolwork. During this time period there were multiple times throughout the day where students stopped doing their classwork to check their phones, eat a snack, or engage in unclass related conversation.
The students use school as more of a social hour, most times communication students had with one another was through their phones.Phones are the most common tool that the students of Kenwood Academy use as there break from school to get contact with the outside world while stuck in school.
The students showed so little interest in school that when at most times when they grouped together or came to look at one object or substance was when it was present on their phones or they had food to share between one another. Most teachers at Kenwood Academy were heard throughout the day to tell students to put phones away, stop talking, or no eating. The main statement heard 7 times a day for 5 days a week being “Put phones away”.
From the photos and what was observed students are receiving more joy and have a stronger interest about what is on there phone screen than they do for what is happening during school.
