I must participate more in class. I will raise my hand when I know the answer and stop being as shy as I am right now. Opportunities are being wasted when I don’t raise my hand. I can share the information I have when the opportunity is available. Participation is a great thing to learn at an early age, because when you get older it’s harder to get used to it.
Many of the teachers we have now are less than interested in their job, and it shines through. It is exceptional noticeable that they would rather be anywhere other than that classroom, and be around these students. When teachers have this attitude, and take it to the classroom everyday, it takes a toll on the students academically. It harms them because they are not getting the best education provided. Teachers have little to no motivation to help their students excel academically.
Remedial classes use up the students’ financial aid eligibility, but are not included in graduation credits; therefore, taking the classes push the students further away from their degrees. According to Tugend (2016), “Remedial classes, which students often pay for but usually aren’t included in graduation credits, are the single most deadly issue for students of color” (para. 15). After students take the remedial classes, they may have little to no money left to take classes that directly help achieve degrees. 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.
Music helps at levels beyond education and needs to be provided to help students achieve success at all levels. It is time to be proactive and advocate for your child’s music program. The loss of music in schools with have a negative impact on performance at an academic and social level. Some children will no longer have the ability to experience the passion that music provides. It is possible to balance a student’s academic needs with the arts, without sacrificing learning and
This proves that the new classwork and homework that the new standards have implemented have forced schools to buy the new technology or else the students would be left helpless and unable to learn. However, there is another disadvantage to the Common Core system. Many teachers are not trained to teach Common Core according the mandatory standards therefore it costs a lot of money to provide the necessary programs to teach teachers. According to Susan Farrer, “...teacher workshops…benefit students’ lives when they learn how to set up a healthy lifestyle”. Thus demonstrating how not only are schools having to pay for the new technology
Whether it be simply the location or the physical condition of the school, the students safety should be the first priority. Studies have shown that students don't work as well in buildings that are too small, or that are situated on busy streets. They achieve less in buildings that are not well maintained (Merjian 17). Students should have a clean facility in which they can learn properly, but sadly this isn't the case in low income school districts. Instead, their buildings are falling apart and are overcrowded.
The cuts in arts programs has had the greatest effect on the students. Without the arts programs students would miss out on the benefits of learning about art, drama, music, and foreign language. Some of the benefits they would be missing out on are the relieving qualities of art, the ability to express their emotions, and the advantages in the academic classroom. Studies have shown that having art or music does increase the amount of information a student retains (Hawkins 1). The most prominent positive effect are the core classes like math, science, English, and history will have larger budgets and they will be able to afford the technology and supplies they need to stay up to date in the classroom.
If students grades continue to drop, this could be a and effect of many problems. Maybe you do not have a good teacher, or you just are not strong in a particular subject. But, whatever the case is, statistics show that the main cause in grades dropping is due to a lack of motivation. Being in a school where you have a long term goal is proven to interest more students and that leads to more students showing up for school. If more students show up to school that means that they have a larger interest and more motivation to learn something new, and causes an increase in students
If class work was to callous I’d complain to my case manager. I’d tell her that I didn’t have enough time or that I have lots other work to do, so she would get me out of any work that I dint want to do. My case manger got me lots of extensions on projects, homework, and test. But I didn’t take advantage of any of it. My grades were dropping faster than ever, and so was my self-esteem.
In the United States today there is a significant number of kids who attend public schools, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but these schools are facing a number of problems that bring downfalls to the overall effectiveness of the system. In the United States the average public school student will have a low standardized test score. This can be linked to the curriculum being taught and how it impacts the way students are learning and how effectively they’re really learning that material. In many situations public school students come from a lower income household, this is affecting those students’ chances of receiving a high-school diploma. In addition to not receiving a diploma it also hurts their chances of furthering their education at a university or trade school.
It was good idea to change the Wyandotte attendance policy, if students miss more than seven days in the last semester because most people don’t come school in their senior years. One reason that Wyandotte attendance policy should change because students will fail in their classes. Another reason that Wyandotte’s attendance policy should change because students don’t know what they learn in their classes if they did not come school. The last reason was that it’s hard for students when they went to college because they don’t know anything. In conclusion, if students did not come school in their senior years than it will be really bad for them and also they are not allowed to come in graduation
