Furthermore, teachers want parents to be involved in their children’s education voluntarily. In practice, most parents have never involved voluntarily in school activities, mainly the school does not approach them (Guolaug, 2010:78). In addition, parents’ volunteering in class was never implemented, so there were no structures or plans to allow parents to volunteer in the classroom or supervise other activities during the school day. They were neither consulted nor were they allowed to give advice on decisions that involved learning at the school because they have considered to be too incompetents (Kimu, 2013:235). Parental involvement in school activities in collaboration with the community, in identifying and integrating resources and services strengthen school programs, family practices, and children’s learning and development (Epstein & Sheldon, 2005:117).
School Uniforms Nobody enjoys waking up early for school only to be made fun of for the clothes they are wearing. Children are always compared to one another, so why not add school uniforms to the equation to make them equal? Only a few schools, mostly private schools, enforce wearing uniforms. Yet the impact of school uniforms is so positive and beneficial. Private schools never had to use uniforms, but they chose to.
It’s so much unfortunate that most students suffer and pay a lot of money yet they don’t participate in school violence. What are the causes of school violence? This is a question frequently asked but its answer cannot be exhausted. Every school violence is brought by different grievances. The main cause of school violence is weak relationship between students and administrators of institutions.
Most of Yen Mah’s family members could care less about her and often forget that she exists. For example when her family moves to Shanghai, on the first day of school, everyone forgot about her and no ne arranged a ride for her to get to school. Another example of this was when her father forgot both Yen Mah’s original chinese name and birth date when filling out her landing cards. She describes this pain by saying, “A pang went through me. I meant so little to him, I was such a nobody, he didn’t even remember my name!” (125).
Also, forcing students to stay in school when they don’t want to be there can cause problems for teachers and other students. Additionally, raising the age for exiting pre-graduation may not stop all dropouts. Some children cannot either afford to go to school or must get a job to help out their family because they cannot afford transport or food for school. In the first source, Marissa works at Shelly’s Diner to earn money, but the money that she gets does not help them out very much. She then leaves school after the storm hits.
Sounds like an ideal afternoon right? If only all schools never gave homework. Homework is used in a lot of countries and in others there isn’t any. Some people believe it helps improve grades and scores. Others think kids should not have homework because it doesn’t help them and use standardized tests to support them.
In the begining of highschool it was very challenging for me to balance school and friends making me choose friends which in this case was so not important or even worth it. Friends change, just like seasons and you might not always have the same ones. Several people that you might come across with are people who just teach you a lesson and aren’t in your life for the long run. My freshman friends taught me a lot because I am not so close to any of them, but during the time they sure did distract me from everything in my life. I started being disrespectful to my parents and not care about my grades.
Imagine sitting in math class, and just not being able to pay attention. The teacher is talking about something that will be very important, yet focusing still seems utterly impossible. You feel hungry and longing for something interesting, but you aren’t allowed to have the one thing that can help your situation; a piece of gum. Unfortunately, many schools don’t allow chewing gum on school property. Focus decreases and grades become lower as a result of gum’s absence, and many students lack gum’s dental benefits.
However, remote parts of the country, like Dharavi, still remained widely unpopulated, and ungoverned. Mumbai started becoming India’s finance hub, and it’s economy soared past other cities of India. The city’s population rapidly rose to 10 million city- making it one of India’s first megacities. Despite this growth, several states located in the Southern part of India were extremely poor, and their economies were drastically reducing because of the lack of employment and government facilities. As such, when the poorer populations heard about Mumbai’s thriving economy, they decided to migrate to there.
Even in Trinidad and Tobago very little work was done on truancy. Incomplete questionnaires also caused a limitation in the study. The spoilt questionnaires caused a setback because going back to the school to gather information posed a problem. This problem rested in the fact that students were being sent home for examinations and were to return to school only on their scheduled examination date. The cooperation of few of the teachers created a setback in collecting the data.
