Your mind goes totally blank, does the exit exam hinder or help you? It hinders you. This leads to the discussion that many students are huffing and puffing about “High School Exit Exams”. As seen in my scenario above many people struggle with high school exit exams not only because they don’t know the material but also because of nervousness. Many of the high schoolers feel that it is unfair to let one test determine if you are going to graduate or not.
In the article written by Tommy Raskin,titled,”Why Students Cheat?” he states, “When you see good test results, you think that cheaters have learned, when that really isn’t so” (2). Cheating gives the student a false state of mind, thinking it is the right thing to do so. If a student cheats and they pass that test or assignment, they have not really passed because they do not know the material enough on their own. Not only is it crazy the amount of students who cheat, but how they cheat. The number of ways a student can cheat is ridiculous.
School Suspensions Suspension is a good punishment for misbehaving, but do they really want to be punished by not going to school for a couple of days? Suspensions are used to punish a student who has committed a minor crime in school. Usually kids are committing a “crime” because something has hurt them inside and they’re just trying to show what they’re feeling against the person that made them feel bad. So, is the student really responsible for their actions? Although school suspensions can be useful whenever a student misbehaves, the punishment can sometimes not even affect the student behavior against other students, limit students from learning new curriculum and passing their grade, and could possibly affect their career life.
Many students feel as if there is no one to turn to because their parents and other adults did not undergo this excessive amount of stress when they were young. The anxiety is so crippling some think there is no hope that things will get better, or they are worried they will let their parents down that the easiest solution is dying. Stress in high school is a problem that leads many teens and children to suicide, and Robbins highlights this with the statistics
If teachers would stop just handing out suspensions the students could talk to somebody and figure out the whole story, also If suspensions would decrease the number of student dropouts would decrease greatly and most kids would get a good education and a high school diploma, If students just got suspended after every time they did something bad it would increase the likelihood of something similar happening again. The whole suspension thing is good on some occasions, for instance someone brings a weapon or drugs to school, but suspending students sometimes just does not seem like the right option and it does not help the situation at
Kids that believe the drinking age should be lowered are wrong because it just makes school harder for them to achieve at. Also if seniors in high school are allowed to have alcohol that just means underclassmen will also. Accidents using alcohol end in many fatalities. Fewer motor vehicle accidents have happened since the legal drinking age has been moved to 21 years old
Children who wear the same clothing everyday are not able to express their individuality and creativity. They even think that the root cause of bullying should not be addressed on students wear uniforms or not. The interest in encouraging on requiring uniforms for public school students is not a new phenomenon, “principals believe that the use of school uniforms can have a positive effect on violence reduction and academic achievement, and can reduce the need to discipline.” (Stanley, 424) Teenagers can be judgmental of each other and compare with each other sometimes. Uniforms can prevent students in school getting bullied, killed, sexual harass or even fight with each other about what they wear to school, if everyone all had uniforms, students would not pick on other people; especially protect the students from lower income family will not feel inferior, and reduce sexually harass based on what they are wearing. If all these issues can be removed and many school violence can be avoided.
Therefore, schools should get rid of sports, for academic reasons, for instance kids who play sports but also has good grades can have difficulty doing homework after practice. Other reasons is that kids who have bad grades are the ones who don't succeed in having a good job. Countless number of kids grow up to be a person who has a better profession than any other of their classmates from there good achievements and also there grades from all there hard
Student ethics in the digital age is students and their honesty towards cheating in this age of technology. Why do Students cheat, How do they cheat and what is the effect of students cheating. Students will cheat so it is done so that they can say it is done or for to passing the class. Students cheat because they were not prepared and feel as if they must cheat for a good grade. In Alexis Brooke Reddings article, Nurturing Ethical Collaboration, “51 percent of high school students admitted to have cheated on a test while 74 percent copied their friends’ homework”(1).
Kids who cheat their way through high school or college are cheating one another out a proper school education (Broussard 27 ). In view of the fact that kids are cheating their way through school, when they get into the world with real jobs, they will not be doing the right things at the right times. Secondly, with this honor code, it will not only make people hold themselves accountable , but it will make them hold their peers accountable as well (Vangelli). In the incident of anyone cheating, students have signed saying they will turn themselves in for their act of cheating. However, they have not
The pressure to do so well has led to cheating scandals and school districts scores being eliminated. Due to the standardized testing obsession, both students and teachers suffer. The modern classroom has been transformed from core classes and electives to a test preparation factory. Never has a test been so important, students are taught that their score is their worth. If a student does not meet benchmark
It is true that obesity and physical inactivity can be unhealthy and dangerous for a child; it is the 4 leading cause of death after all (Myer); but banning contact sports wouldn’t necessarily cause obesity or physical inactivity. If contact sports are to be banned children can still choose to play a different sport; there are plenty of other sports like soccer and basketball. In fact, sports are becoming a much more popular thing in the US and more children are getting physically active. According to Terry Adirim : “Half of all children aged 5-18 years in the US are thought to participate in organized sports programs, This nears that an estimated 30 million school aged children children are involved in sports, which represents a substantial increase over the last 20-30 years (Adirim). Now that more and more children are playing sports, obesity and physical inactivity isn’t as high as it once was.
This quote is explaining how kids that are going to school and coming from better households than their peers can affect how they feel about school. Kids that come from poor incomes homes don’t enjoy school because maybe they feel like they aren’t good enough for it which makes them not want to go and get into gangs or things they shouldn’t be in. In conclusion This goes back to my reasoning on saying that the strongest cause of minority male incarceration in the U.S is young dropouts because most of the kids , teens , etc that get killed nowadays aren’t educated and involved in
It becomes next to impossible to strive to be better when the youth are constantly told they are worthless by people of higher authority and even their own peers. In the novel, Dr. Rios describes a concept He calls “dummy smart”. During his study he noted that there were multiple youth who were doing very well in school, but were labeled as being deviant and dumb by school officials. They purposely acted as if they were uninterested in school, but when called upon they always knew the answer, which shows they are more willing to gain respect from people of higher authority in a more negative way. As the novel progresses Dr. Rios goes on to explain how some of the youth wanted to change, but felt
