Have studies proved that segregating students by gender leads them to do better in school? Students learn better in single-gender schools. This is because in single gender schools, students tend to be able to concentrate more. Boys and girls are also academically different, so separating them by gender, would benefit students in their academics. Lastly, boys and girls feel less pressured in single-gender schools.
If you surround yourself with the right people, you can achieve greater things. Friends affect success both directly, indirectly, deliberately and non deliberately. A 2015 study conducted by researchers at the HSE Centre for institutional studies showed that those who hang out with people that are more successful in school will also improve in school. Conversely, hanging out with the wrong people will drop your grades. Having first hand experience with being surrounded by the right people I can attest to this having a positive influence on decision making, effort in school, and belief in yourself.
The Privileges of the Parents Margaret Miller article “The Privileges of the Parents” invalidates Paul Barton and Anthony Carnevale main ideas from their articles. Barton and Carnevale focus on the benefits that accrue to individuals from having a college education. Miller’s purpose focuses on the fact that children who have highly educated parents are more likely to have a bigger vocabulary or superior critical thinking skills than children who has parents with just a high school degree. Miller uses the rhetorical triangle which includes logic, emotion, and the writer. It can further be broken down into fallacies, tone, evidence, and authority.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, children who play in high school sports are more likely to be academically successful. The social benefits can also lead to academic benefits. When teams are performing better, that success can also lead to the classroom. It makes students have a mindset that should do better in another subject in school (“Global Sports”). A University of Kansas study looking at the performance of students in the grades 9 to 12 showed that more than 97 percent of student athletes graduate high school, 10 percent higher than those students who have not participated in sports.
Parents who receive enhanced case management will have more contact with referral resources, when referrals made than those who do not. 10. Parents who receive enhanced case management will receive more completed assessments with referral resources, when referrals made and contact made than those who do not. 11. Parents who received enhanced case management will receive more services based on the assessments they received than those who do not.
Studies have shown that if students who have English as their second language they will benefit from year round schooling. Children of immigrants may not be able to hear English due to the long summers. Students that are in year round schools have better test scores than a person that is in traditional school (Mcfadden). This evidence proves that you could do better in your classes if we have year round schools. The website states that “English as their second languages benefit the most from year- round education.” which means it would benefit the most from year- round education because traditional schools you could take ESL but year- round schools you won 't forget the stuff you learned over the long break as you would in traditional schools.
After analyzing 69 adult Drug Courts, every practice found there was higher recidivism reduction compared to another program (NREPP , 2017, p. 4). Through studies on individual participants, SAMHSA found that “drug courts ‘significantly reduced the incidence of incarceration from a base rate of 50% to roughly 42% for jail, 38% for prison, and 32% for overall incarceration’” (NREPP, 2017, p. 6). Drug Courts save people from getting put in jail and this study shows how it works in keeping them out after completion. Low recidivism percentages are another huge plus to the courts. Recidivism reduction is the goal here, and percentages in the study ranged from 5-164% reduction rates (NREPP, 20137, p. 4).
As pointed out in the article, “Culture-Fair Cognitive Ability Assessment: Informative Processing and Psychophysiological Approaches” more ethnic students are placed in special education programs and a very low number of ethnic students are placed in gifted programs. Caucasian American students usually score higher on standardized intelligence tests compared to both African American and Mexican American students which questions a bias in said testing. The article goes on to test this bias by
From telegraph.co.uk, studies have shown that, “For monolingual adults, the mean age for the first signs of dementia is 71.4. For adults who speak two or more languages, the mean age for those first signs is 75.5. Studies considered factors such as education level, income level, gender, and physical health, but the results were consistent.” More confidence is gained from a second language which boosts self esteem. Along with improving health, it prevents other health issues to occur towards you. The effects of learning a second is long term, in which there’s a chance of living a longer period of time “sane”.
There are also much better ways to test a student’s capability to learn; a 2006 Center on Education Policy conducted a study and found that a curriculum that follows state standards and uses the test data as feedback led to higher scores than those that prioritized test-taking skills. When teachers are more focused on teaching material rather than test strategies, their students benefit from it (“Do Standardized Tests Show an Accurate View of Students’ Abilities?”). Several alternative methods to state assessments for measuring a student’s academic success include comparing high school graduation rates and the number of dropouts, offering advanced placement courses, and looking at the percentage of the former students that are admitted to colleges. State assessments are more harmful than helpful to students; they are a large cause of test anxiety and a majority of teachers can never fully prepare their students. Although state assessments are an easy way to be able to see the growth of students, that does not mean that they are the best
