Schools vending machines sell sweetened things as well they're never going to be healthy nothing in this world will be healthy unless they start selling fruits and vegetables. Instead on focusing on what students eat and what they shouldn’t eat they should be offering students a health class and teaching them a healthy lifestyle. The schools should offer more sport teams and not only one season of that sport but 2 spring and fall. Removing candy and soda doesn't make things any better because people like the forbidden and banning soda and candy makes student just want it more. To conclude, in the article “Should Candy and Soda be banned from Schools?” it states whether candy and soda should not or should be allowed at school.
Education Reforms Education reform is legislation to improve the quality of education in the United States. Once, grades were the most important achievement for students. However, politicians and the public were concerned that our standardized test scores were not as good as those of other countries. Therefore, state and national governments started making laws to make school more challenging and to test kids more. One of those laws was “No Child Left Behind”.
America’s high schools are in desperate need of help. Students should feel there is a purpose in going to school and getting an education. They need to be more motivated to go to school. The amount of tests students take in High School is ridiculous. Students need to take less standardized tests.
The Grading System: Completely Necessary Grades are an important part of the school system. Grades set the extraordinary students apart from the ordinary ones. In Jerry Farber’s essay, “A Young Person’s Guide to the Grading System,” he argues that grades are the only motivation students have in school. Farber even calls it “phony motivation.” He argues that students do not actually learn anything. Farber also argues that I disagree with Farber’s viewpoint on the grading system and the effect on students.
This is shown when the woman states, “It’s just that this little boy seems rather reluctant to join in on erotic play.” (Huxley, 31-32). This quote shows that children of both genders are met with certain expectations. In general, children are expected to run around, explore new things, and at times, get hurt. The children in Huxley’s dystopian society are not allowed to do explore and learn. In fact, they are taught at an early age how to be profligate.
The catch is the person must understand the consequences of the taken actions. In essence, “The Total Effect and the Eighth Grade”, by Flannery O’Connor, is about education not being based on the wants of students and not having the right to select what they wish to learn. O’Connor states, “More often than not, the teacher assigns what he thinks will hold the attention and interest of the students. Modern fiction will certainly hold it.”(324) She bluntly believes that our youth is far too ignorant and idiotic because what they are being allowed to read serves no purpose. Teenagers care about reading modern creations due to their reliability and because the diction is fairly easy to comprehend.
They try to improve their score because everybody else has a better one than them so they feel they are not good enough. Should teachers be quitting due to the stress of testing? No, because they don't really go through as much stress as the students do when they are testing and the teachers should also be able to handle these things and not just quit because they think it is too complicated(Occupytheory). Does it affect the way teachers teach their classes? Standardized tests do affect the way teachers teach because they can only teach certain things and not what they think that the students might need.
In Diana Ravitch’s ‘(2010) article Why I Changed My Mind, she discussed how abiding by an educational system using accountability and choice has failed tremendously in America. In addition, Ravitch explained how the federally ordained policies are continuously contributing to the system’s decline as well. She believes the legislators are so focused on testing and teacher evaluation that they are ignoring the root of educational problems faced in the United States. With such strong emphasis on testing and test results, educators have changed their teaching strategies in an attempt to satisfy this broken structure. There is strong attention to preparing students to pass standardized tests while simultaneously denying teachers the time to focus
Standardized Testing hurts children who think in different ways. This is quoted by Valerie Strauss, who makes a great point by saying children can only learn by the way it 's taught and it cannot be learned from other sources. Standardized Testing limits what children can learn and how they learn. Schools also spend an extraordinary amount on testing that could be going to better education and more funding to arts and extracurricular activities. Although, some say standardized testing is beneficial to the way students learn, statistics show that this is simply not true, standardized testing adds unnecessary stress on students, suppresses their creativity, and limits the creativity of teachers.
Bob says that teacher certification is not enough to show that that certain teacher is good enough to be effective to all students. Bob states that schools in the past didn’t research the teachers so they could make the students score high on end of course exams. He states that schools have to change the way they higher teachers so they can tell the difference between good and bad teachers. Bob states that doing this would help our students to be more successful. The second solution that Bob states is that schools should teach all types of school models.
