Furthermore, in the article “Parents Should Take Action Against Excessive Homework”, Nancy Kalish continues writing about the inadequate amount of physical activity had by students and states that too much homework causes kids to miss out on playtime which is necessary for preventing childhood obesity (Kalish n.pg.). In America, 18.4 percent of children ages 6-19 years old are obese. This issue is often due to the fact that those students have no time for any exercise. If homework did not hold back students each night, they would have extra time to use by exercising and staying healthy. Homework is greatly affecting the physical health of students of all
Even if a student passes the remedial class, he or she is not any closer to his or her degree than before, which often discourages many students. According to Meredith Kolodner (2015), “The model that’s used now is a set of prerequisite courses in English and math that presumably will build up the skills of a student so that they can be successful in any college-level course, but that hasn’t been effective” (para. 7). While remedial classes are good in theory, in many cases, they are unnecessary for students if the standard class does not help the student achieve his or her degree. Remedial classes often push students further away from their degrees, and community colleges would benefit from only making students take remedial classes that are required for their degree.
Some say, “The money is being put to good use,” but it’s really not i mean students already have enough tests and if students took less tests than less money wasted and more learning time. Students should not have to take standardized tests. They take up too much money from our pockets. They manifest too much stress on student. Finally, they take more than the amount of time given.That is why students should not have to take standardized
Additionally, the lack of seriousness transitions into students being uninterested in school because they have to take unnecessarily long tests. Not only do standardized tests cause lack of school interest but they increase students stress. Having to sit through a test that impacts your grade, represents your intelligence, and future adds a lot of pressure to oneself. Overall, when standardized tests aren 't taken seriously the data collected makes it hard for educators to improve education, students lack motivation, and adds a lot of pressure to people 's everyday lives. Typically, standardized tests are multiple choice meaning students can guess for every question without understanding how to solve the problem.
I believe that it puts too much stress on kids and it doesn’t show their full potential. Kids could be amazing writers, be very creative, have outstanding leadership, but these tests don’t show any of these talents. Standardized testing should not be required in school. Standardized testing is a test or tests that require all students to answer the same questions in a certain amount of time all the same way. The questions do not have to be high stakes tests, time limited, or multiple choice.
That is, until the next day. Now, this structure of sitting still for an hour, while having to retain everything our teacher says, and then having to drop everything at the sound of a bell to switch to a completely different subject, does not seem like the best way for any adolescent to successfully learn. However, is it possible that this system, though not ideal for many students, in general works better in the interest of only one half of the population? Not all girls like ballet and nail polish, and not all boys wants to grow up to be firemen and football players. However, research indicates that they are not exactly blank slates, free of gender predispositions, when they are born.
Having year-round schooling would only become an annoyance to students, teachers, and parents. I am against year-round schooling because it gives students little to no time for breaks, it would become an inconvenience to students, teachers, and parents, and it would burn students out much more quickly. Having to work all year round would bee annoying to anybody, including students. Year- round schooling gives students little to no breaks from school without counting holiday vacations. It does mean students would go to school for less days a week, however, this would also mean teachers would have to compensate for this by giving them a lot of homework over this extended weekend.
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
But his math skills are far above those in his class this shows that the child already knows the information and the parents are just holding their child back for the purpose of high test scores and their kids to be considered the brightest of the class too low and it becomes boring well too high and it becomes on the morning if you put a person who is supposed to be an algebra and he and you put them in regular algebra they will surely get an A+ on every test an assignment but what if he 's truly learning and getting from this class eventually they will get bored and lose motive to excel as a student reading is a waste of Education time and bored the child
All students want in school is to get good grades and sometimes they will get desperate and being desperate leads to cheating. When students cheat all they think about is getting a good grade most of the time. Other students don’t care about school and they cheat. This can affect not only the student his/her self if they get caught but it can affect the class and how other students learn, because if one student sends out a test or homework than other students will have it and then pretty soon most students will have it and not have learned anything. There’s is no conclusion to cheating, because no matter what, students will cheat weather they know if it 's right or wrong.
Passing a standardized test should never be a high school graduation requirement. Tests are difficult for people with test anxiety, tests don 't cover everything students know or need to know, and test graduation requirements will cause teachers to only formulate lessons based around the test criteria. Test graduation requirements could be one of the worst things we could do with our education system If passing standardized tests were a graduation requirement then people with test anxiety would have a great disadvantage on the test. It is said that as much as 40% of children have test anxiety (half of which have an extreme case). Test anxiety can also affect your grade by on average 12 percentile points.
