Abraham Lincoln once said, "The strongest bond of human sympathy outside the family
relation should be one uniting working people of all nations and tongues and kindreds."
For an organization to work well it has to have a diversity of people, good communication
with all the employees, and to be organized in a way that is effective and efficient to
function properly.

I currently work at the Turlock Junior High School (TJHS). It is an organization that is
composed of the administrative staff, teachers, classified staff and students. To be able
to function, each branch has diverse group of people working together to make TJHS a
better place for children to learn. TJHS has employees with different cultural background
and who speak different languages. The employees are very useful when foreign students
come to the school without or little knowledge of the language English. The staff helps
the students get familiar with the school's process, schedule and what is expected from
each student.

Since each branch has different job tasks, communication is very essential among all the
branches. For example, if the administration staff does not inform the teachers about a
mandatory meeting, the teachers would not know about it and will not attend the meeting.
Therefore, the teachers will be reprimanded for not attending without being at fault. And
as well if the teacher does not inform the administrator staff about a field trip, the
administrator staff will panic when the students are not present in the school.

The school must organize in a way that it can function properly. According to
Schermerhorn, J. Hunt, J. and Osborn, R. an organization must "consider short-term and
long-term performance" and it also "requires a commitment to continuous and lifelong
learning from one's work and everyday experiences." And must also a motto of belief in
which the school is based upon. At TJHS the motto is "take pride in what you do." This
motto is to be used by all the employees and the students.

Turlock Junior High School takes pride in having a diversity of staff and students,
providing communication among all, and being organized to be able function accurately.
Carl Rogers said "If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity
of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish
to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for
self-initiated learning."
