Educating students in single-sex schools limit their opportunity to work cooperatively and co-exist successfully with members of the opposite sex. Also, “research shows that students of both sexes placed in single-sex classrooms were more likely to attend four-year colleges and receive higher test scores, (Heneghan).” With the information of students receiving higher test scores and are more likely going to attend to a four-year college, that just shows students tend to take school more seriously and want to succeed in the
Colleges are considered viable establishments for preparing students for jobs after their education career ends. However, they are not doing an optimal job in ensuring that students are obtaining the best education they can get. There is no pull or motivation factor to capture students’ attention within a large class. The most pivotal part of college is implementing what was learned throughout its duration, and applying it to a future career. Students are paying tens of thousands of dollars to attend college, and lowering the class sizes will help students receive the best education that they are paying for.
I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.
To begin with, people whose family have a lower income and they may not be able to go to college, can use affirmative action to still be allowed to go to college and exploit their talents and still be able to live a standard good life. “Now more than ever, the continued use of affirmative action is needed to address existing discrimination, to break down barriers and to ensure that all individuals have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their talents and abilities” (Affirmative Action, 1) In the quote, it explains how affirmative action helps more people be able to get allowed into schools that would otherwise not, and now have a chance to show their talents and abilities to the world. That although they came from a low income family or a one-parented family, they still have an equal chance to show how they can make a difference in the United States. “These children will grow up to be the adults who drive the
Primarily, people argue that colleges are a place meant solely for learning; rather, students who dual sports and schooling tend to have better time management and learn necessary life skills. The average graduation rate of athletes triumphs over the typical graduation rate of most colleges. Similarly, some argue that schools are forced to compromise academic standards for athletes, but coaches often urge schoolwork as the top priority. In fact, to remain eligible, college athletes must maintain their GPA’s. Finally, many argue that college sports disadvantage those students who don’t participate; however, college sports create a sense of pride and bond together the entire population of students.
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
Being in high school is time consuming. With some high schools adding community service as a requirement to graduate, it puts on more time for students. Yes, community service is good on college applications and it helps the environment and what not, but it should be optional. High school has enough requirements which includes certain classes that a student must take. Volunteering should not be mandatory because students already have enough responsibilities; they might have jobs, the need to be social and healthy, and if it’s supposed to be voluntary then it shouldn’t be forced.
Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career. School isn’t for everyone though school is claimed to be a necessity to being “successful” most young adults can do without. Here’s to show you can have a “successful” life right after high school without college; the options students have during high school, less spending money and more making money, starting your career sooner.
The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college. It is very important for a student to have an open mind for the drastic change their about to encounter in the next four years of their lives. They are both different levels of education that are expanding a student’s knowledge to fulfill their career path for their dream job. Although, there are both similar to one another that involve teaching students to learn both have many differences between each other, I prefer college more than high school based on my experiences. The
Citizens of America should look at the different schools and the funding they receive compared to the environment the students live in. One may realize that the educational system is not right, giving one school more money because of the location. Once people realize this they can write to the government or even protest my pulling their kids out of the school to show how providing one school more money is going to give the students at the poorer school a smaller chance at being successful, meaning those students may not get a job to support a family or just them. Making the funding equal would make America better as a whole because more students will go to college, receive degrees, and get better
