Alfred Mercier once said, “What we learn with pleasure, we never forget.” Floyd County High School used to offer a four block schedule to all grades, allowing students to learn with pleasure. This year that has been changed. From an eighth grader’s point of view, there is not enough time in the eight-class-a-day schedule to retain what we are learning. With this schedule the homework load has been doubled. With merely forty five minutes in each class there simply isn 't enough time for teachers to deliver their materials.
Did you know that 66% of students don’t do to college because they can’t afford it? The number of students enrolled in colleges and universities this year is 1.7 percent lower than last year. Most students that don’t go to college is because they don’t have the money for it or else they have another good paying job that doesn’t require a college education. People don’t have to go to college to become successful. Most students don’t go to college because they don’t do well in high school, so they think college will even harder.
They want them to work and not be educated. Because of money issues people don’t get to pay the fees of the schools. They do have educational centers but still some people of the country do lack education which brings the literacy rate of a country down. These countries are also called Periphery countries. Global Perspective Every country in the world has schools.
Four days of school are better. The school districts have been arguing about the school schedule for provide the most effective curricular benefits for students. The current economic downfall has impacted many of the schools in not teaching the next, students in the most effective environment and decreasing their graduation rate. Next, Many school district have adopted a new four-day school schedule that significantly changes the customary five-day school week to recover its quality of educations. Next, A four-day school week is a relatively new and innovative idea gaining popularity with students and teacher across the United States.
The number of all year-round schools in the United States is 3,181. Yes it seems that the cons are over weighing the pros but it wouldn’t be all that bad for more schools in America to change their schedule to all year-round education. It would be better on the teachers, students, and parents in many ways. The Average dropout rate for year-round schools is only 2%. For non year-round schools the dropout rate is 5%, which is more than all year-round schools.
“This approach is bad economic policy and bad education policy. An unprecedented federal spending increase for education will not improve economic growth -- and past experience strongly suggests that this plan will not improve American educational performance” (lips 2). Increasing school funding the wring way can cause the economy a lot of money and may lead to huge budget cuts or even jobs lost. There is a lot of public school across America that are underfunded so trying to fund them would cost a lot of money. Increasing school funding is very risky because if the graduation rates don’t go up when students get older they would face the problem of being in debt and won’t know how to pay it off .
That 's just no fun. Some people may say that having a four day weekend gives students a three day weekend to enjoy themselves more, but in reality, we are having less of a summer break, we are having longer school days which can cause stress in the long run, and they will have less holidays breaks during the school year. Having less holiday breaks during the school year can impact the us due to not having enough time to bond with family get together on a holiday or celebration. I would love to keep the school schedule the same and so do most kids. In conclusion, We should not have a four day school week due to how much our summer break will be cut down to, how long we will have to stay at school, and the amount of holidays throughout the school year we will not get off like we usually would.
However, since I could not attend school full time this would not be impossible for me. Although, this is a marvelous opportunity, this restriction that come with this scholarship would made it hard for me to benefit from it since I must work. In (“nytimes.com”) it is stated that To qualify, students must attend school full time and be on track to graduate within two or four years, depending on the degree they are seeking. But low- income students often must interrupt their studies to work. At the state’s community colleges, more than 90 percent of students would not qualify for free tuition based on those requirements.
Body paragraph #2 As well as money, time is an important factor to be successful. Premont Independent school district shut down its sports to save money, According to Ripley,” there was all this extra time” said Nathan a former Premont Quarterback (10).” About 160 people attended parent-teacher night compared, with six the year before,” said Ripley (10). This proves that Students are getting homework done and
For novice teachers, studies show that about 17 to 40 percent of them will quit within the first five years. Many reasons exist as to why, with popular trends including: low pay (where beginning teachers earn 20% less than their college degree earner counterparts), dissatisfaction with compensation, better career opportunities, challenging working conditions, personal reasons, lack of support for new teachers, and inadequate preparation. Most notably, the factors that go hand-in-hand are teacher preparation and support through mentorship. If teaching institutions are not thorough with their preparation, veteran teachers at the novice teachers’ school would be the next available option. A mentor’s expertise within the school, given their tenure, should nurture a new teacher into becoming effective and efficient.
Even with inadequate staffing, the proposed budget does not work. Within five years of opening, the school anticipates a budget shortfall of half a million dollars, an ongoing deficit that will get worse over time. The school may attract Madison students who currently attend private schools, bringing more state aid into the district. However, this approach to balancing the Isthmus Montessori budget works against the vision of a diverse, inclusive school, and is far from
A major issue in this counties school system is the issue with busing students, with the biggest one being to change the schools from race assignment or income based. With the change being implemented the schools have become more segregated. North Carolina as a whole stopped using race based assignment plans in the late 1900s after a series of court cases struck down the practices in various settings around the country (Kemp, 2015).In 2000 Wake tried a new assignment policy that was based on income and achievement. This would make it so that no school would consist of more than 40 percent of the students receiving free or reduce lunch, nor more than 25 percent of students performing below grade level, the policy was voted to be ceased in 2010. Wake county school board is seeking to replace a policy which based on race, to a socioeconomic in regards to student placement.
