Having a school system run on a four-day rotation would increase their success by offering more opportunities for lesson and work time. Lessons in class are rushed and left unfinished due to the tight time restraints placed upon teachers. They are given an inadequate amount of time to teach the excessive amount of material given to them to cover and, more often than not, they fall behind in their lesson plan, leaving them unable to teach all of the topics in each of their classes. Teachers struggle in reciting the entire lesson within the given time. With the extra fifteen to twenty minutes on their hands they could
“Oh, another?” You groan as you sit down, and you probably won’t get up for several more hours. Thus begins the fourth day of standardized testing. Students should not have to take standardized testing because it takes up too much class time, it puts stress on teachers and students, and students already take too many tests in each subject. For example, it takes up too much time in class. Standardized testing is taking up 2.3 percent of classroom time.
College athletes are encouraged to sign up for easier classes. They attend “independent study courses” that involve very little work to pass the class (Neuhauser 11). Coaches often have to add incentives for athletes attending class so they can maintain their grades to keep playing sports (Lewis and Williams 22). Many of the top athletes receive a full-ride scholarship or some sort of compensation to play. If the athletes are able to finish their degree, their career pay could be raised from $22,236 to $38,820 (Gerdy 8).
The year of the test, we had to take our normal Math and English class while an addition HASP prep Math and English so half of my classes where bases around this one test. Not only did it put stress on student it also pressure the teacher because if any student was to fail it would put the teacher in the line of question why the student wasn’t able to pass. Now think about standardized testing in a work environment. Picture it you come in to work every day on time do all the project your manger assign you. You’re the ideal employee and after three year they make you take a one test and you don’t pass the test by a few point.
The next generation in the united states is in jeopardy of becoming a cubicle workplace with no hands on work. With no hands on work we as a nation would rely on outside nations to do our work for us. Therefore we need people to go to a technical college and work hands on in the field of their dreams. We have many students struggling to find jobs out of college because of all the students going to college for the same major causing the students to have student loan debts and not bei needs more welders woodworkers and engineers, and less accountants and customer support phone jobs. The world already has enough people to do jobs like that we will need more people to do these jobs as lots of people in that work force are retiring and we need them jobs to be filled up so our economy doesn 't collapse.
Athletes can not get paid because there are not professional.Athletes need to focus on their school work and they worry about getting paid. College athletes sometimes put in 40 to 60 hours each week for practices,travel and games. (It 's the coaches and the administrator to make staggering amounts of money Athletes are not allowed to get money other then scholarship because of the NCAA rules.) There’s a clear disconnect between college and the administrators they play for and at no point has that been evident than the past 48 hours (Listland.) Athletes need to get paid because they put in work on the team.” The N.C.A.A of amateurism in college athletics has come to border on farce” (YANKAH).
Kellie- It is my understanding that 58 students are registered for AP Literature next year and will be placed in only two sections. This is highly concerning as it is not what is best for our brightest students, especially those who have so much at stake (scores, scholarships, etc.). Placing this many students per class will not only make it virtually impossible to conduct writing conferences, an integral part of the course, but will also drastically reduce the amount of individualized attention and could possibly ultimately lower scores on the AP Exam for individual students and our campus alike. Understanding it is necessary to maximize class size, a class of almost 30 students who are reading and writing on a daily basis is not conducive
Throughout the first week of EOF I’ve learned about many things, but most importantly be grateful for the opportunity getting a higher education beyond a high school degree, that majority of people like me can 't afford. Transition from high school into college is a huge difference because you are now in your own, and even though there are people on campus to help you, you have to take responsibility for your own self. One might be tough but being away from home is hard, since mom is not around to cook those delicious meals, do your laundry, remind you to do your work, take care of you when sick, as well as other things. I’ve learned that transition from high school into a college setting takes time, but it is all about getting used to a new
College is actually very hard and nothing like high school. However, unlike high school, the professors can actually cancel class. Freshman 15 will happen to a person if they are not dedicated to staying in shape and eating healthy once in a while. Peer pressure is huge, especially if the person being peer pressured had never “had fun.” Many people do not care where the next part will be at, as multiple students will mostly focus on the school work and have their priorities straight. Living in dorms will not be the life of a party and playing beer pong in the middle of the halls, as there are resident assistants (RA) who will keep the halls in check.
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
