Do you often see students yawn and lay their heads on their desk during the day? It has come to my attention that many people think our school shouldn’t start later. A reason for this is because it will interfere with transportation to get to school. However, I believe that having a later start for school outweigh the cons, and that it will benefit the students and teachers. Schools should have a later start because students will do better in school, more sleep will help their health and memory, and kids aren’t getting enough sleep.
Is homework becoming too much? Every day students spend hours upon hours doing homework every night and stressing out if they aren't able to finish it. The first form of homework was given as a punishment to the kids that would act up in class. The teacher would give them extra school work to take home and do instead of being able to go home relax and have fun. Although homework can help increase understanding of new topics this kind of practice is not helping students because it can interfere with sleeping, stresses kids and teenagers out and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school altogether.
The testing takes up time students could be learning more, and the students don’t enjoy taking these tests, and it turns them off of school. First, standardized tests takes up time student’s could be using to learn more. Because students lose so much school time due to standardized testing, they don’t progress as fast as they could and have use summers to keep up with others. Some people say that these tests are important, so they don’t care they take up time. However, the tests just show what students have learned, and they don’t actually help them.
Go to bed early.” This shows that students need this time to do other activities such as sports, hanging out with friends, and being with family, and not worry about their homework grade. Therefore, because students spend a maximum of eight hours at school, they should be expected to spend their free time doing homework. In the article titled Why Parents Should Not Make Kids do Homework, the author says, “young students can rarely cope with complex time management skills or the strong emotions that
Well for those with difficulty focusing, this is counterproductive. This may lead to behavioral issues, in the classroom which teachers want to avoid. To add on with year-round schooling it has frequent breaks that disrupt family life in both student and teacher. So if a family is planning a getaway, the varied schedule causes major problems in the plan. With that those who are finding it hard to secure child care during the short breaks will find the system difficult to live with.
According to the article, “Those coming from the workforce will also have their own particular challenges when they lose the structure of work and daily deadlines and demands,” meaning that many students have learned how to deal with the work world already but just need to know how to put this towards their daily school lives. Many students don’t need to be taught how to budget and how to work around a new schedule because they are putting in the conscious effort to already do so. If students aren’t doing it or aren’t making their lives easier by coming up with a budget, or with an assigned schedule then these students just don’t care enough to do
Why the Arts Should Stay In Schools In a perfect world, there would not be a debate over whether or not the Arts should be in schools. The Arts would still be in schools nationwide and their budgets would not keep getting cut. Sadly, we do not live in that perfect world and we are faced with the sad truth; many kids are not getting an education in the arts and are not living up to their full potential because so many arts programs have been cut nationwide. Kids are forced to focus on core classes and to constantly test. The Arts need to be in schools though, because it engages kids in a way that Math, Science, Social Studies and English cannot.
Almost everyday, students get buried with homework. The homework given is basically useless to many yet still taken for a grade. It is often believed that if homework is not taken for a grade anymore, then students will not do it causing them to score bad on their tests and their grades as a whole. However, in Dhahran High School Saudi Arabia, homework is counted as a learning behavior grade and not achievement. Due to this many do not do homework as often but study their own ways or work on their hobbies.
In the website EBSCOHost: School Uniforms: An Overview it says.”Some kids spend hours just to decide of what they are going to wear that day and it might be very stressful for them just to choose what to wear.” In schools with uniforms there is not that kind of pressure. Those are some of the reasons why I think that uniforms cause less stress in what students have to wear to school because they won’t have to worry about getting the best brands or decide of what to wear to school that
Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class. But when kids wear school uniforms, yes they may still talk about clothing, but since everyone is wearing the same thing it would be very less likely for people to talk about. Kids do worse on tests since they are distracted when the teacher is teaching. They will be talking about clothes instead and looking at other people’s clothes. Having school uniforms will keep the students more focused since they see the same outfit on the same person every day.
Support from teachers can help kids know that they are in a safe environment and that it 's okay for them to be themselves. The support of good peers and friends can also play a big role in a child’s school and social experience. Kids who don’t try hard in school, and don’t do their best might still be that way when they are adults. Children and teens who don’t do well in school because they cannot focus on the task often fall behind keeping a job, or staying focused at work. Teens and kids who socialize instead of working will not help them when applying for and managing a steady job.
