Many of the high schoolers feel that it is unfair to let one test determine if you are going to graduate or not. Especially knowing that you did a good job throughout the school year but if you failed that exam none of it would matter. Implementing high school exit exams is detrimental because it decreases the graduation rate, reduces students’ chances of getting into college and places special needs students at a
A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent. This would be an understandable reason to not continue college, but is very specific to certain people or families. Another personal case of why an individual would drop out is college is it is just not the right fit for their life. College does teach valuable life skills and provides an advanced education for those who need it, yet some professions do not require a degree. If a student is not getting valuable instruction for what they want to do, it would be the smart thing to back out and peruse an apprenticeship for example.
At Cedaredge High School we do not have a written honor code. Our honor code runs along the lines of bruin pride versus an actual honor code. If a student written honor code that did not change with who you are or the family you are a part of could be established at CHS then it would greatly improve our school environment. An enormous issue the honor code must address is the prevalence of cheating. A school can not function without a set guideline of rules, responsibilities, and disciplinary actions.
If schools fail to meet the obligations in this area, students will not have a good future ahead of them. For example, they will struggle to afford their college, not get scholarships, and not get accepted for sports associations. However, if school do meet the obligations in this area, students will have a bright and better future. Therefore, middle
Im thinking that year round schools just shouldn't be meant for every school and everyone at time.Year round schools can be helpful for students that are not fast learners.It can help them for when hey get in college cause colleges not all have breaks on certain holidays that i know of but if so it still can help them in many
Yet, some may argue that this is not due to the differences in culture and background, but rather due to the student having a bad teacher. Although it may be true that good teachers would not allow a student’s identity affect how they reach the specific student, it must be noted that teachers of students that have poor scores are “of about the same quality” (Strauss) as those students who score very well. Therefore teachers cannot be a deciding factor in child success or otherwise there would be a discrepancy in the ability of teachers where there is not. Plus, it must be pointed out “how well some of [the] students are doing,” (Strauss) if poor teachers were really the cause of the bad test scores of some students then all the students in that class should be scoring equally bad, but this is not the
Students will retain more of their knowledge over their breaks. Academic performance might improve, and some difficulty arises when scheduling extracurricular activities. Summer camps and other similar programs take a drastic hit from this decision. Summer employment of students becomes basically impossible, and juvenile delinquency should go down with the smaller breaks. A school system would have to carefully analyze their situation to see if the effects of a year-round school year would benefit their
The only class I would say that felt like an actual honors class would have been my AP world history class. Coincidentally, the instructor of that class was also the adult mentor of the National Honor Society program at my high school. My involvement in that AP world history class actually changed my perceptions as to what education meant to me. Despite being only one class, it was enough to ignite a desire within me to really love learning and really compel me to figure out how I wanted to further my education. I asked myself this question, "Do I want to be passive and keep my head down or do I want to participate and see where it takes me?"
With hectic schedules, late nights, and the pressure to push themselves academically, it is important that students have summer break to regain their social, physical, and psychological health. Many schools have embraced the idea of year-long education with the thought of increasing test scores, but the benefits of year-longs school may not be in favor of the students. Forty-one percent of all public schools within the country
Some people don’t need to go to a four-year college because it's not for everyone. It does not also guarantee a job which means you will get your hopes up and won’t like the results. In addition, there are blue collared jobs that offer good pay as well. Therefore, success does not require a college degree. Students today believe that continuing higher education promises success.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures. I don’t think that anybody would think of me a failure just because I didn’t pass school, they would probably start to think
Summer breaks are full of good memories and should be experienced by all. I know that if I was in school during the summer, I would be distracted and not pay attention. Year round schools aren’t always beneficial to students, teachers, and the school itself. Let 's get rid of year round schools and let students be able to enjoy long summer
Downgrading dishonest academic integrity in school environments will allow students to understand the importance of an honor code. It is embarrassing to be caught cheating by peers knowing that the honor code is enforced. Developing a community that takes an honor code seriously will decrease the amount of cheating. At my high school, certain teachers will remind students of academic integrity, however, there is not a community for it. Even without an honor code at my high school, students should be remind constantly about academic integrity.
Not every student is going to be ready for AP calculus that 's why some schools offer other math alternatives to help. The author also explains that students are required to take the basic math courses that will lead them up to Ap calculus. For example, they need to learn algebra and geometry to be able to do
In order to meet racial admission quotas, a school may admit a student who does not necessarily meet all the requirements. These students have the potential to succeed, but quickly become discouraged in the demanding programs (Sander 6). Use of an affirmative action program “tantalizes unprepared students with the promise of a [...] degree and all of the opportunities that it offers,” (Justice Powell qtd. in Chingos par. 3).
