In many school districts, every seven years, textbooks have to be updated and schools have to pay for new ones. However, low-income schools that already are struggling financially are now having to pay more money for technology compared to the amount of money that was spent for textbooks. The money that went was invested into buying textbooks has gone to waste. “...many schools had to develop or purchase new curricula and materials that were aligned to the Common Core” (Meador). This proves that the new classwork and homework that the new standards have implemented have forced schools to buy the new technology or else the students would be left helpless and unable to learn.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” is the phrase most children hear in elementary school. From then on we have to start making decisions to decided how to got forward with that career. College is for everyone, but our society does not make it easy for it to be that way. To go to college you need time, money, and stupendous study skills. College is for everyone that is why it is so important in our society today.
A college education is an important part of a students education. They are all taught at a young age to go to college and to get a good education so that they can get a well paying job. They can’t do that if they can’t afford the prices of the college and so then they have no choice but to not go to college. The prices of college are a big increase and the government needs to see how important it is to students and lower the cost. It is causing students to to have higher student debts, dropout rate to increase, and more stress and
We all wonder why and how students want to cheat and plagiarize. There’s a couple reasons why students feel the need to cheat in school. “Undergraduates say that they need to cheat because of the intense competition to get into graduate school, and land the top jobs” (Willen 56). This need to cheat reflects from an anxiety about the future and it’s being reinforced by their experience of higher education as sophisticated preparation that is highly competitive. This pressure to be competitive and to be at the top of everything in school are put on them by their parents.
All United States citizens should receive free college tuition because it would make more students get higher education which in result would make us over all smarter with better jobs. Have a better job would also result in our economy grow because there would be more jobs making less people be unemployed and making more money to contribute back in the economy. College tuition should be free because there are many underprivileged families whose kids work hard in school that deserve to be able to have a college education. Some kids who do amazing in school and receive amazing grades are not able to get into the college they want due to the high cost of tuition. In 1918 public schooling became a requirement for people up to the age of 18, now in the 20th century a college degree is becoming a requirement in getting a job but not a right to all American citizens.
In order for kids in school to focus and succeed in school students need to understand why education is important and teachers understand why their students are misbehaving. In Ancient Egypt only rich families could afford schooling. Students need to understand that having the right mindset about things is the way to go even if you are not satisfied. In Ancient Egypt the problem was that almost all households could not afford to put their sons in school. Instead of school they would home school their kids.
She goes on to say “[Student] cheat to get a better grade, of course!” (Gu 2). It is such a simple answer for the subject, but it’s incredibly hard for some teachers to wrap their heads around. For so many students, a grade is worth more than their lives and its shown in the amount of students who cheat in order to receive a better grade; even with them knowing at full extent that it is wrong. Mr. Steven Tolman from Georgia Southern University also wrote an article on the increasing amounts of cheating in High Schools and Colleges called “Academic Dishonesty in Online Courses: Considerations for Graduate Preparatory Programs in Higher Education”. He believes that the reason of recent spikes in the research of academic cheating is due to the online classes and the effects they
At primary school, my teacher used to tell me that studies are the key to the future, always asking me to rise the board higher. Few years after, I was surprised to see teachers, people well educated and are educating others, fired for having taken students’ money and harassed some girls students. I became perplexed about school, studies. In reading Chinua Achebe’s novel No Longer At Ease, I discerned that: Education is a double-edged weapon because in one hand it helps to think critically and inquiry everything in order to understand the world; in the other hand, it contributes to a loss of identity and morality. Obi, the main character of the novel, is seen by his family and entourage as a source of pride because of his studies and his “White” post; contradictorily this same education brought him in front of a court for bribery.
All we need is people that believe that getting a better education is better for you in long run that’s the only way education is key. If we had more big companies putting more money into the schools people can start lowering the tuition this is starting plan if we start having way more funding into the schools though the government we would have a lot more kids trying to get into college.I read a survey on online in seen that some kids in college had a debate on this topic one kid that free college means high school all over again meaning many people would take college for granted if it was free because the way they act in high school saying they won 't be able to go to college because they act bad in high school. the student said college is for people who really do care about their
Students ask a common question, “Do I have to go to school?” while their parents are dragging them out of bed. Students should be able to earn money for the grades that they receive. This will make schools more challenging, and kids will want to go school with acceleration. Students will enjoy the challenge of getting money and will work harder to receive it. Paying students for grades can lead to extra motivation to exceed expectations.
