The study, based on the constructivist paradigm, used a phenomenological strategy to show the negative effects of (constant) reading of the violence in Shakespeare's Hamlet, an English play that is one of the most famous literary masterpieces in the world. Participants in this study were educated men and women who had the capacity to comprehend violence in literature. The participants included ten educated individuals with various university degrees, from an associate degree to a doctorate, from different fields of study, and between the ages of 20 and 50. Participants' experiences and feedback were analyzed, and the results demonstrated that violent actions in stories can have great effects on the lives of not only the readers themselves but their families and also the whole society.</p> Bita Iraji Hamid Roohbakhsh Far Copyright (c) 2023 Bita Iraji, Hamid Roohbakhsh Far (Author) 2023-09-01 2023-09-01 4 2 32 41 10.59098/socioedu.v4i2.1170 SCHOOL CULTURE IN BUILDING CHARACTER AT SMA NEGERI 5 KUPANG <p>This study uses a descriptive qualitative method, namely research that obtains descriptive information in written and oral form which is obtained directly from the people being observed.

History which spills&nbsp; over to current events in society and impacts the Indigenously community greatly till this day. This country has a concerning Indigenous Education Gap—a disparity in educational achievement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The Indigenous Education Gap is widening and rising quickly across Canada. Bridging the education gap is thus a critical component of any plan for enhancing the prosperity, health, and well-being of Canada's indigenous population, as well as eliminating marginalization. Education is one of the many concerns that Indigenous people in Canada must tackle. The acts of previous Canadian administrations, both implicit and explicit, have resulted in a considerable educational disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous pupils.&nbsp; The western system of education is inherently exclusive, and its fundamental educational process is based on privilege. Resolving the enormous and ongoing inequalities in student educational learning results must be based on Indigenous notions of education, rather than a standard western/colonial approach</p> Austin Mardon Razan Ahmed Copyright (c) 2023 Austin Mardon, Razan Ahmed (Author) 2023-09-01 2023-09-01 4 2 48 52 10.59098/socioedu.v4i2.1181 THE STUDENTS COGNITIVE DISCREPANCIES IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCES UTILIZATION: A CASE OF HIGHER LEARNING INSTITUTIONS <p>The humanistic intellectual algorithmic nodes deployment on Artificial Intelligences (AIs) brought significances in undertaking socio-economics activities.
