My character merits selection into the National Honors Society in a variety of ways. My characteristics include, persevering in my studies, exemplifying beneficial qualities, and upholding principles of morality and ethics.
A great education can change economics. A great education change democracies. A great education can change dreams. Honestly, I think Mr. Washington and Mr. Chestnutt both are right. I believe that having an education enables you to obtain knowledge to be successful and have economic worth. “The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success. It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation.” Knowledge is power and with that knowledge you will not have the determination and ability to know how to fight for your rights and use what has been established before us. “The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees all citizens equal protection under the law, and the Fifteenth Amendment prohibits denying men the right to vote based on their
How much does summer vacation mean to you? That's the question many families ask themselves as they make the choice for year round schooling. With year round schooling students take several breaks, similar to a winter break in length, instead of one long break in the summer. Some people feel it is a terrible idea, while others say the academic aspect is superior. Although some people feel strong about year round schooling, year-round schooling is not the best educational option for students.
Fate, by definition, is the universal principle by which the order of things is seemingly prescribed. (Webster) Essentially, fate is events that are inevitable that we have no power to change. It is debatable that fate exists among everyone; however, humans are subject to making their own choices- free will. No matter what choices people make, they do not change our fate. A different path is simply taken towards fate. Both fate and free will play an important role in determining the death of Santiago Nasar, the main character in Chronicle of a Death Foretold, written by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez.
Way back when: parents knew when to be responsible for their children’s academic accomplishments – and students themselves – this seems to have diminished completely. the times have completely changed, nowadays, many people AKA ignorant parents, believe that it is the high school itself, teachers, and the government that are responsible for students getting good grade because the arrogance and sense of pride levels have risen so much, they are too prideful to believe their child could possibly fail and it be their fault. Before, when you got an F, your parents would blame you, ground you, and make you write “ill do my homework” 100 times on a piece of paper; today, they would rather take the time out of their day, go to your school and demand
It was good idea to change the Wyandotte attendance policy, if students miss more than seven days in the last semester because most people don’t come school in their senior years. One reason that Wyandotte attendance policy should change because students will fail in their classes. Another reason that Wyandotte’s attendance policy should change because students don’t know what they learn in their classes if they did not come school. The last reason was that it’s hard for students when they went to college because they don’t know anything. In conclusion, if students did not come school in their senior years than it will be really bad for them and also they are not allowed to come in graduation
A common illness that is said to strike high schools across the nation and stand as an excuse for plummeting grades from the senior class. It is believed that seniors become incredibly antsy their last year of highschool and are looking into the future for a solution to their bored life, seniors also begin to question whether the classes they are taking are meaningful or not while sloughing off the tension that comes with high school because they have been their four years and know the ropes. Not all seniors are sucked into this mindset, and many continue to further their academic success throughout their senior year. This article brings up all of these points but does not effectively support the points

Anyone can easily get meningitis from anywhere, and it is a serious illness that can affect both young people and adults. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “meningitis is an inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord” (1). College campuses and dormitories are perfect environments for meningitis to spread. A lot of students are affected and diagnosed with meningitis each year. Most of the students are not aware of the early meningitis symptoms, or they just ignore them. Also, they often fail to get vaccinated. The stress of studying and exams weaken the immune system which will make the student more likely to develop meningitis. Meningitis is one of the most serious and spreadable diseases on college campuses and dormitories because of the number of students that are affected each year,
This is how sickness is spread around our campus and sick students remain sick. They don’t have any time to
Moritz Schlick is a representative of logical positivism doctrine. His definition of free will, determinism and moral responsibility derives from the definition of punishment. He supposes that “Punishment is an educative measure, and as such is a means to the formation of motives, which are in part to prevent the wrongdoer from repeating the act (reformation) and in part to prevent others from committing a similar act (intimidation). Analogously, in the case of reward we are concerned with an incentive." (Schlick, p. 152). So, Schlick’s view of free will and responsibility is connected with punishment. He supposes that a person in responsible if the punishment for his action is able to change his behavior in the future. So, his determinism differs a little from that of Blatchford. In his point of view, "we are trying to discover who is ultimately responsible" (D'Angelo, p. 37). So, he thinks that moral responsibility is not derived from heredity and environment. But what is the source of free will and moral responsibility? Schlick doesn’t give any unequivocal answer to this question. I think that moral responsibility depends on the scale of free will of a person and his attitude to the actions of other persons. In other words, our behaviour is the result of both our heredity and nature, and some outside factors which depend on our relation to other persons’
Lastly, I am also taking college classes to further educate myself in subjects that I enjoy. With the countless number of possible majors available, there is a great deal of classes that cover a wide variety of subjects. Attaining a college education has always been important to me and my family. My reasons for taking college classes represent my own personal will. It represents my own personal dream of becoming a physical therapist. I personally get up everyday and attend class to acquire the information being presented. I personally take notes and study for these class in hopes of receiving the grades necessary for medical school. It is out of my own personal will that I get up every morning to succeed in life. While I would like to think that the entire reason I am taking college classes is out of my own personal will, I know that society does have an influence. In the future I want to be successful not only for myself, but also for my parents and friends to be proud of me. I want to end up being successful with an amazing career, and not end up struggling without the ability
Academic success to me is achieving good grades and understanding the material to get good grades. Academic success also means to have an good attendance. I already get mostly A’s and B’s, but I am not good at staying on top of things. To improve my academic success I will attend class more often, be more organized, pay attention in class, and not procrastinate.
It is not just everyday people on the street who overlook mental illness. Doctors are guilty of doing it too. Health Affairs Journal claims doctors do not take mental health as seriously as physical injuries. The 2016 study from Health Affairs Journal concluded that medical professionals are less likely to help or follow up with patients with depression than they are with a chronic physical illness, like diabetes or congestive heart failure. This creates a negative bias in the medical field, which is where the mentally ill need help from the most. If mental illness isn’t taken seriously by doctors, how are family members or friends supposed to? Who are suffering teens supposed to receive support from? A study done by Health affairs (2016 Alan
