The shorter week can help the schools save money without the extra day to operate and have also demonstrated some unexpected positive changes like students performing better on tests, higher grades, and better behavior. The four-day school week has minimal flaws when compared to a five-day week; the only major flaw is who will supervise the students while they 're not in school. After conducting research, I believe the four-day school week should definitely be considered for implementation in urban areas. One concern is, how does the district shorten the school week by a day? Will the students receive the same education as a student who has the the five-day school week?
Then you wake up the next morning, still very tired, and do it all over again. Sounds familiar, right? But, what would happen if the school day was longer, and there was less homework? Students need a longer school day with less homework because it reduces stress in students and adults, provides better ways to learn, and homework provides little benefit. Many may believe that homework provides a way to practice skills learned at school.
School Year Round Why would anyone want to go to school a year-round? (Rhetorical Question) School should be a year-round because then students will not forget their learning, be more focused on their education and it will be easier to earn their credits in a shorter period of time. Firstly, A school year-round should be offered each year so students will not forget the learning. Many students that come back from their summer break most likely struggle on what they have learned, for instance, everyone ignores most of the subjects and methods that everyone discovered last year. Having a year-round school can allow students continually practice and build up their skills that will benefit them in the future.
If this is ignored, more and more students will drop out of school, less people will graduate, and test scores will significantly drop. Keep this in mind: paying students for good grades will provide students with a motivation to work hard. They will then learn the value of hard work. This will help shape them into amazing, successful human beings. One of these students could even turn out to be the next Einstein, or Rosa Parks.
I propose that Carmen should start doing block schedule because this will give the students an opportunity to get more one on one with their teachers for longer class periods and to have less homework each night so that students aren't staying up late. 2)We should have block schedules at Carmen so that students are having more work time in class and less homework at night that causes them to stay up late. Having a block schedule will allow students to have less homework at night this also prevents them from staying up late. My friend who goes to a school that once had no block schedule. She had said they had changed to block schedule and that everything went very well for her after that.
There is also an extreme advantage in having the class for a semester long rather than having one class or small workshop. Having repetition for the students allows for better retainment of the skills and information they will receive from this class. Teachers will be better at getting to know the students and the individual concerns and skills they have. Having the repetition over a semester long period will help students to build long-lasting confidence over time. When taking a workshop on self-defense, the confidence gained from that could dwindle quickly over time, but with taking a longer term class would allow the confidence to be more prominent and genuine for a longer time.
In the early 1900’s Americans started to experiment with year round school but it has just became popular in the last two decades. Many schools decided to switch because of the drastic decrease in students state test scores from the end of the school year compared to when they come back from summer vacation. School districts should consider switching to the year round schooling schedule rather than the traditional schedule because it will cut down on brain drain, many schools that switched noticed a significant
Financial literacy is very gainful and important for individuals and families. It was proven by many researches in the world whereby it will build students’ opportunity to saving, expenses less than they receive, not having a debt with any sources and has stability on their budget for every month. So, students who lack a knowledge about financial will increase their difficulties to manage their financial a later years. Hence, students would have more negative views about finances and easily made a wrong decision if it related with a financial when they have a less knowledge about it and vice versa (Chen and Volpe, 1998). In addition, financial literacy (knowledge) must be teaching by both parents and university.
Having the right attitude people will be able to avoid senioritis with full force. According to Weisman(2014), as soon as someone falls into the not caring attitude it will be difficult to get out (Weisman, 2014). If someone decides to start not caring during his or her senior year and go through the whole summer break with no school work, it will be hard to get back in the swing of things when the first year of college comes. Another way Weisman(2014), says to avoid senioritis is, take classes that give college credit (Weisman, 2014). Taking college credit during high school will save many people money and time in college.
Starting school later can actually improve your learning, health and even your attitude and all of that can be changed by just starting school at 8:30AM. Kids don't start taking in information until 8:30AM because that is when the brain starts to really work. According to National sleep foundation ¨ teenagers are naturally inclined to stay up later and get up later in the morning.¨ ¨Starting school at 8:30 improves a student's chance of success,¨ according to the (National sleep foundation). Not only do teens want to sleep more, but sleeping more actually improves their health. If schools were too just delay school by 30 minutes it would improve the student's health and grades.
