I think that having a four day school week is a bad idea. I think that having a bad because having a job that won’t have a four day work week. I also think that having a 4 day school week is a bad idea is because the American School system is failing. There are some students that count on these lunches for food and having a four day school week causes them to not to be able to eat as much.
I am the sibling of a student currently attending Melrose High School. I am contacting you to request that the district implement healthier start times for middle and high school students attending Melrose Public Schools. Currently, Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School and Melrose High School have a start time of 7:45 a.m. Studies show there should be a delay in morning classes until 8:30 a.m. or later. Doing this will maximize the intellectual potential of the students in our district.

It has come to my attention that our school is considering changing to a year-round schedule. I understand that this schedule involves having three-week breaks in between each nine weeks as opposed to having a long summer break. I robustly agree with the new year round schedule, because not only does it aid students, it also aids our flourishing minds.
Schoolies week is a festival held on the Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise for year 12 students who have just finished school. The schoolies organisation host different events such as the beach party, the glow party and the movie night. There is a large amount of controversy about weather schoolies week should still be going or not. There are a lot of issues involved with schoolies such as underage drinking, drug use, unsafe sex, injury and sometimes death. 1,500 teenagers attending Schoolies on the Gold Coast are surveyed each year by Drug Arm Australia. Last year’s figures show that three quarters of them got drunk, one in five passed out and a quarter of them injured themselves during the schoolies week.

Imagine if we had a four-day school week instead of a five-day. Some school districts have changed from the traditional five-day school week to a four-day school week. The National Education Association should consider making the changes to a four-day school week, because it will save school districts money, students get better scores, and there is better attendance.
My old high school, Ramona High School, is described as a small campus. The current population of students is around two thousand. The school’s diversity is low, and about seventy percent of the student body consists of Hispanics in our school. The school ranks low in many categories; schools grades, and test scores are below average. People consider that our school is “ghetto”, when in reality it is not. Over the four years I attended the school, it improved. The number of fights have gone down, and the test scores have started to go up. The classes are known for being relatively easy, and people can boost their GPA. We are on the 4.0 scale, and in AP classes you could get a 5.0 GPA out of 4.0 GPA. Bentley University is a small campus, when compared to other universities. Other campus populations range from, five thousand students to around twenty thousand students.

An especially crucial obstacle that can arise while having the same four classes everyday for a full semester is the possible one year gap of a certain subject. For instance, a student can have math first semester of his sophomore year, but may have to wait until the second semester of his junior year to take a more advanced class that will build on what he had previously learned. This long break can lead him to forget certain key concepts. Therefore, his grades may be disrupted, as well as his performance on college admissions tests, such as the SAT. This type of dilemma has a fairly simple solution: implement A and B days. Each day will call for four classes that are different than the ones from the previous day. Essentially, a student will
When I initially signed my bid for Chi Omega, I had no idea the impact that it would have on my life. As a junior, I was much older than a majority of the girls in my pledge class, and even the sorority. Thankfully it didn’t make a difference in our connections and I felt that I had finally found my home. I knew that I had made a decision that would make a huge effect on my life in so many different ways.
Are students in the United States being overworked by the school system? Traditionally, American schools use a five day school week. The five day week is prolonged and overworks children and teens. Extra days decrease motivation of not only students but staff or teachers as well. Lowered motivation creates low performance, which discourages the students even more. When there is no encouragement, the teenagers often don’t show up to school. The lack of effort correlates to teachers because it could dispirit them from doing work they want to assign in class. Changing to a four day school week can give additional benefits to all parties involved including students, teachers, and the school settings.
Many students are getting late to class but are being counted absent for being more than five minutes late. The schools give the students five minutes to get from one class to another, but it can take more than five minutes to get from one building to another when there is traffic. Schools should not mark students absent when they’re tardy because some students would get released late in other classes and some students would skip because they know they would be counted absent either way.
