When looking at my family, and the history of what has shaped my life, the main even that I can identify is having my son Hayden out of wedlock. This effected not only in a positive but somewhat of a negative way as well. Even though in our present time, children out of wedlock is not uncommon; However, many people such as the older generations still believe that you should be married before you have children. Some of the issues I encountered changed me and the outlook I have now. There were also positive lessons learned from this experience as well.
Many people influenced me during my life. Throughout every body’s life there will always be a person who they look up to and admire, who had influenced them to change their life. She was that person. It was a hard and emotional time. Her death assured me that life is too short.
The students just need to get the help. As long as the students are getting the help, there’s no point in the no pass, no play rule. For school teams, the coaches are typically teachers. The teachers understand the struggle students are going through, “Coaches are very understanding about a student putting schoolwork ahead of sports. They will be understanding if a student needs to attend extra help after school before coming to a practice.” Students can balance school and sports, they just need to find the balance first.
Most parents find it hard to pay for college. College is not worth the cost considering there are jobs for people that do not go to college, Time could be used at a job, and Students end up in major debt. Instead of students going to college, they could go straight into the workforce. Going to college helps obtain you better jobs. The effort students put into receiving a degree is not the same as ten years ago ( Shierholz ).
My senior year of high school, I applied to one university because I the only way to be success in life was to go to that school. Fast forward to a few months later, when I received what I thought was the biggest heartbreak of my life. I was seventeen and my parents had not so great credit, it was impossible for me to get loans for a $50,000 a year school. I was devastated. Not going to college was not an option for me, but I simply did not think I was the type of student who went to community college.
After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers. Unfortunately, I have noticed that not all students in my peer group are able to finish college. “Nearly one out every five students in America drop out of college by the first semester.” There are three main reasons for teenagers dropping out, them being: financial issues, academic struggles, and another simply being to start a career. Firstly, college as well all know is quite expensive and is continuously increasing in price.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
New school, making new friends, and getting used to the school. My sophomore year I transferred from Shaw High School. I really didn’t want to go here I would have preferred to stay at shaw, but I couldn’t. Sophomore was my worst year of high school. When I first started Collinwood High School, they didn’t have my transcript over from Shaw so for a month I had to take ninth grade classes.
There wouldn’t be opportunity for growth in this country without successful graduation rates. The future of our country depends on the scholars that colleges produce. Without a thoroughly educated society, America would hit the floor and relapse into a deep depression. Jobs would disappear because the ones applying for them wouldn’t get accepted because they aren’t qualified. Even though dropout rates rise each year in America, college application rates are also on the rise because graduating high school students understand the importance of attending college.
Students should not be required to do volunteer work in communities in order to receive their school diploma. That is saying that the school is forcing them to do volunteer work or else they do not get their diploma. Students should have a choice to volunteer. It does help colleges be interested in them; however, it questions the student’s mind. They think, “ Why is it being forced on me to do this when I already have taken my required classes to earn those credits”.
