Rewarding students for good grades will decrease student’s self-motivation. Paying students for good grades will realize an actual decrease in academic performance. These distinct disadvantages highlight why schools should not pay students for good grades. First, paying students for good grades causes practical problems in the classroom. According to the National Education Association (NEA), “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” These pressures and conflicts can lead to larger problems outside of school.
. What we have now across the country is confusing, hard to navigate and, I believe, abusive of both teacher and student time.” this shows how standardized test are a waste of time for the students and the teachers since instead of the teachers be giving lessons, they have to take the little bit of time they have for their class to be giving test to students. Another example is “When you teach to a test or even prep for a test, educators are taken away from some of the good work they could be doing helping students learn”. Teachers take a lot of their time training kids for tests and to make sure they get the information they need in order to pass the tests given by the
A child is struggling to learn at his/ school. He is more of a visual learner, like learning with pictures and shapes in front of him. His school, however, does not have the power and funding to do such things for him, which leaves him struggling and get bad grades. Now, why does he have to struggle in a school system which can’t even support his learning style? School choice is the idea that parents should be able to choose which school they want to send their children to, whether they enroll them to private, charter, parochial or virtual schools, or just decide to homeschool them.
Have you ever come home from a long day working at school just to get yelled at by your parents because you forgot to turn in an assignment, or you got a bad grade on a paper? This happens to kids all over the world. Which brings up the argument do grades really matter? A lot of people say no they don't matter but then you have a lot of other people who say that they do matter, so do they really matter? An article from education.good.is says “Teachers need to foster an environment that allows kids to think, allows them to ask the questions that matter to them, and allows them to feel comfortable pursuing answers, says Lythcott-Haims.
Technology is not as helpful as administrators believe because students take advantage of the privilege. As the teacher is standing in front of the class, giving a lecture, student could be taking notes, but most likely doing something more interesting to them at the moment. Me as a student with a chromebook I don't take notes anymore one of my friends will and they will email it to me while I do the homework the teacher assigned in class that
Schools will usually set up special days maybe even weeks to take these tests. The tests are meant to measure the intelligence of students, to show how well the teachers are doing, and to see if the school’s program is working. Standardized tests should be eliminated because students are stressed, it is not a true measure of a student’s intelligence, and students aren’t learning what is needed.
School, according to Gray (2013), is limiting children’s freedom and creativity. Teachers rarely explain fully to students’ inquiries, and they may be unsatified if their students do not understand the lesson. Therefore, children are less willing to enquiring and sharing their opinions in class. At school, children are taught by the teachers, and they seem to learn only for the tests. Gray demonstrated that “teach-and-test method” reduced children’s enthusiasm as well as interest in studying.
The curriculum is drastically narrowed. Teachers often need to spend significant amounts of time preparing students to take the tests so they can do well, leaving less time to teach subjects that tests do not evaluate such as social studies. This result in “teaching to the test” which means that teachers are almost exclusively focused on helping students get good standardized test scores. It can place a huge amount of stress on students and teachers alike who are pressured in preparation and taking of the exams. Standardized testing only evaluates the individual performance of the student instead of the overall growth of that student over the course of the year.
You work in school and you work in a job, you get paid in job, while you do not get paid in a school. So what is the deference? From my opinion, I think that offering money on the students in order to perform well in school will encourage the students to try harder in school. There are a lot of students who just don't care enough to make an effort, and offering money in return for success would give those students a reason to pay attention and to make their
The problems of lack of funding, facilities, unspecialized teachers, and crowded students. The lack of funding doesn’t allow the improvement of schools also not raising the salaries for teachers making them give private lessons. The improvements of facilities are a must to improve the environment for students. In addition to the backbone of education teachers should be more specialized and taken exams to specify what does a teacher need like if she needs an assistant or where she belongs in a school it can specify what can she teach like if she fits with primary school or with high school. The crowded classes one from the major problems that makes it hard for the teachers and the students to teach or learn.
