Will it be more effective for government funding and to high school students to entirely cut out senior year? Topics like this one stir up conversations and arguments. Even though other things in life play a crucial part, education and literacy are the two most crucial parts of people. Both of these aspects in life, however, either include having homework, taxes, or senior year. Based on the class discussions most of the students agreed that senior year is just as important as the other grade levels, however, some students said homework wasn’t important.
Although the common belief is that certain aspects of school are important for an ideal education for all students, the main problems that need to be rectified as soon as possible include the lettered grading system and test scores as the main measure of achievement as well as a lack of disciplined and motivated in teachers who do their jobs correctly in order for their students to reach their full potential and excel in life. Out of all the issues with American education today, one of the most overvalued yet problematic for students is the grades and scores that represent their classroom proficiency and content knowledge. It is true that today, in the United States, the easiest and seemingly most reliable way to track student performance and rank schools by quality of education is by simply marking students based on their scores on assignments and assessments done in school or on standardized exams designed to measure mastery of content, and by comparing and analyzing the
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class.

(Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
Decreasing School Apathy in America Early mornings and long days that are filled with factoring polynomials, conjugating French verbs, analyzing historical documents, and studying for state-mandated tests. This required curriculum set by the state is what comprises many students’ average school day. This curriculum was developed with the goal of preparing all students for college; however, not all students plan on attending college. There are many jobs that are crucial for society to function that don’t require a degree. For students who go straight into the workforce, this college-bound curriculum is nearly worthless.

Abstract: In today’s world of cutthroat competition, people struggle their entire lives to earn a decent living. The common perception is that people need numerous degrees from prestigious educational institutions in order to make something of themselves. Students spend their school life pulling all-nighters while cramming for exams, memorizing facts and figures that are soon forgotten the next day and most of which will never be useful to them again. The fact of the matter is that any person with the right ideas and the ability to execute them can be successful. You don’t have to be a class topper from Harvard or Yale to become a success.
To students, sitting in such classes is very boring (Chaudhari, 2017). Another set of students say that they pay for the classes and they are the ones to decide which class to attend and not. Students believe that they are capable of gaining more knowledge even without going to classes. A study conducted recently reports that effort and intelligence are more important for grades and not the attendance. Students agree to this statement made as they feel that their focus and determination can get them high grades.

There are many different traits that people possess that make them individuals, for me, the most important or prominent trait would probably be my need to always have things planned out in advance and as well as possible.

Over time I think I just started to sort of overcompensate by being much more organized that I need to be. While it can sometimes be hard to plan out everything as much as I would like, it has been very helpful for me in the past with school work and all of my jobs I’ve had for me to be pretty good at organization and time

Due to the lack of support in money, students could not properly perform in school and pay attention in class and rather think on how they are going to get money, and since some students does not have other means of getting money, some engaged themselves in stealing and other illegal activities.
