Recently, a Duke University professor, named Harris Cooper conducted a study about homework. His results showed that students who did homework did worse in school. The work caused low energy physically and mentally, and a negative perspective towards school itself. (Time) If homework is making children have an overload, they are not going to do good on the tests that matter. In addition, if kids do not like school, they will not try.
A study done by NEA states that 70 percent of educators dislike standardized testing. The The National Education Association asked 1500 teachers if they agreed with standardized testing fand 77, 75, and 58 percent of elementary, middle school, and high school teachers respectively disagreed with testing. Therefore, standardized testing should be removed from public schooling. The intellectual capacity of a student cannot be completely measured by a standardized test. "Contrary to popular assumptions about standardized testing, the tests do a poor job of measuring student achievement" (Harris 1).
Grades are just numbers. They do not measure intelligence, in the same way that age doesn 't define maturity. At least once, majority of students in school have experienced getting poor grades. These grades are forcing them to be “smart” and, to such a great extent, they feel stressed and pressured. In fact, grades actually do extra harm to them than good since they have negative effects on students’ mental health.
Even though I am not a doctor, my younger cousin is autistic and shows the same signs as this student. The teacher informed me that he was not doing well in class because he did not understand anything she was teaching. I asked the teacher why he was not in a special needs classroom and she explained to me how the student’s parents would not acknowledge the situation at home or in the classroom. The climate of this specific classroom is not suited for a child with special needs, if the child were in a special needs classroom, his learning would not be stifled but encouraged. An additional example as to what school climate is, is stated in “School Climate: Measuring, Improving and Sustaining Healthy learning environments,” by H. Jerome Freiberg, “School climate
Rewarding students for good grades will decrease student’s self-motivation. Paying students for good grades will realize an actual decrease in academic performance. These distinct disadvantages highlight why schools should not pay students for good grades. First, paying students for good grades causes practical problems in the classroom. According to the National Education Association (NEA), “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” These pressures and conflicts can lead to larger problems outside of school.

In the film Lalee’s Kin, the school superintendent Reggie Barnes, described Tallahatchie county schools as being the worse of worse because they were a level 1 school according to the ITBS. As he pointed out, the system was built to fail these children. He partly blamed the state for not taking responsibility to provide him with the funds needed to hire more qualified teachers and purchase school supplies need to teach their students. He advocated for adequate and identical educational opportunities for students within his school district as the rest of Delta school district had. The state threatened to take over the schools if there was no improvement.
The root of the major causes of school apathy is the ineffective curriculum used in schools all over the country. The current curriculum is designed to make all students college bound; however, not all students are going to attend college. For the students going straight into the workforce after high school, high school is viewed as a waste of time. According to a study performed by William J. Stull, the salary earned in the early workforce is not notably affected by the skills taught in high school (18). This fact justifies these students’ apathy toward school.

The author relates to when President George Bush tells students that an average of C can make them a president. This presents students with a wrong notion that they do not have to read for them to be successful. Politicians hence are providing wrong information to students which in turn affect them in the schooling which in turn leads to poor quality of education in public schools. Furthermore the wages which teachers receive for teaching in public school is small and this affects how they teach to students which in turn lead to poor quality of education offered to students in public
