Education is one of the greatest tools for the young mind. Education, especially a college education, can provide a young person with incredible opportunities that can take them far in life. These immigrants feel as Americans and deserve the same education opportunity as any other American. “Undocumented students, they argue, often bring unique viewpoints and backgrounds to campus, excel academically and contribute to the economy after graduating,” (Fattal). These students bring fresh viewpoints into their school environment because of their experiences.
On the other hand, some teachers love what they do, and they should get more recognition for
In the article, “Give high school students more exposure to training for a variety of careers”, by Jeffrey J. Sellingo states, “By giving high school students exposure to jobs, perhaps we can help fill the jobs that are coming available and give people access to fulfilling careers.” Giving students more classes that are based on jobs can help them fulfill their career and actually be ready to take on that career path. Students could have the choice of taking courses that are in a way job training and, those courses would be their choice. They would do better also because they choice which career class and weren’t forced to take one due to the small number of career classes offered. That’s why, high school should offer more career based class options so, students will be ready for their future
“Research shows that students in co-educational schools are often better prepared to succeed in post-secondary education and to enter the workforce, (Leighton).” It gives a positive self-image and helps develop the confidence of our future leaders, which students need. Students are preparing for the future and surprisingly, having both genders in the same teaching environment will actually help the students in the future. It makes them more confident when talking to the opposite sex, which students will need as they pursue their career as an adult. Students in single-sex classrooms will one day live and work side-by-side with members of the opposite sex.
High School guidance counselors have to remind students that test scores are just one part of the college process. The National Association for college admission counselors in Arlington VA, has shown that SAT scores have been consistently ranked third in importance behind students grades and strength of high school curriculum (Adams 1). When being a student it can be hard to remember a majority of different tools are used to determine if you will be accepted to a college, not just you SAT score. Most students have the idea that their scores are their only hope, and that’s what will be getting them into their dream school.
An article written by Emily Hanford, suggests that the success of getting students to maximizing their potential at college is understanding how each student learns. Teaching methods should be changed and it should be understood that there are constantly a diverse set of learners that make college slightly better. Hanford also states that education is crucial in our rapidly evolving world and that the learning methods that are used aid in the student becoming a better person post-graduation as well, which I wholeheartedly believe in and should be broadened across campuses. In an article written by Julie Lain to YOUniversityTV, she states how she is thankful for the opportunities that a prestigious college education has given her. Not only did it build her societal skills, but she also improved her writing skills tremendously as well.
Some people say students being paid for grades can have a positive impact on their academic career. Khadijah Alfred, a fourteen-year-old at Manley Career Academy High School (MCAHS) says, “It’s awesome. I’m going shopping, it made me work a lot harder.” While getting paid for grades can quickly have the outcome in motivating students, in the long run, students will start to lose this self-motivation. Students that quickly become motivated by a dollar bill, eventually no longer feel like they need the money or even want it, and therefore falls back into their old routines.
I think students should get paid for good grades for several reasons, for example it will motivate the students to work hard, teach the students responsibility, and it will make the teacher’s job easier. Some students around the world are asking this question, “should students be paid for good grades”. Some students say yes we should, because students are working hard to get good grades, so they deserve a proper gift. Imagine the situation if the school pays the student who gets good marks. All students that are getting good grade, will try to keep their level the same, even the students who get bad marks, are trying their
In today’s failing school system something has to be done to improve student performance and motivation. One method that has great potential for doing this is paying students for good performance and grades. It will give the students incentive to do better, it will teach students to work harder to achieve these good grades, and it will teach the students that there are rewards for making good choices in life. Other people believe that if you bribe or motivate kids with money for good grades then that kid will automatically expect rewards for everything that he or she does. Diane Ravitch argues that students in India, Korea, and Japan spend thousands of dollars and attend after school classes to boost their chances for college admission (1).
The application of this reward system is popular in scholastic concerns especially as to avoid the proliferation of low grades among students. If parents pay their high school students for good grades, the students won’t only earn good grades but also acquire more good grades, money management
Higher percentage of passing scores on state exams will show as well as other important advantages. Working and learning from other students in different economic classes, and getting feedback from them and other peers is a benefit of attending a professional affluent school. Some of the other benefits include being responsible and preparing them for college. Like mentioned before, being responsible is a crucial thing to be when students are in college if they want to succeed, being a part of a professional school is where students will learn and master the ability to be responsible. Not only will they be ready mentally for college, they’ll be ready academically which is something that everyone wants to be when they’re starting college.
Many students work hard to obtain the best test scores and achieve “Straight A’s” in order to have a better chance of attending their dream college. Schools and parents often encourage children from a young age to perform their best and challenge themselves. Often the students who strive for excellence live their dream of

It builds crucial skills such as time management and work endurance that students will carry on throughout their lives. As well as building crucial life skills the class creates an amazing learning environment for students to discuss and debate in. AP World History is very beneficial to students who wish to build life skills and lay down a foundation for success later in life. AP World History is a great opportunity for students and should be their first choice when choosing a history
I want to go into the field of business and management in the future, I do not know what specifically I would like to do in that field but with being in DECA and in MIS at Pottstown High School I know I am completely interested in that field of work. I enjoy being actively involved in clubs like DECA and NHS because I compete with others to be the best academically. I know I can take on this opportunity and get my college credits done early.
