If homework was eliminated then students might have a more positive attitude towards school. This would cause students to perform better academically since they think of school in positive ways and want to excelle. Students behavior would be confident and positive. Teachers would benefit from this since they would not have to worry about students being disrespectful or students not doing their homework. Students spend more than 100 hours of extra time in school, but the US is still falling behind in global rankings (Vittana).
The end result would probably be more school violence, not less. The public school system is created for all students and supported by all taxpayers. It should therefore remain neutral on religious issues over which students and taxpayers will differ. Since no formal school prayer could simultaneously honor and uphold the tenets of the many religions practiced in America, as well as various denominational differences, prayer is better left in the home and religious institution of the individual student’s or parent 's
They should instead be able to get an equal education that can help them in their futures. If nothing changes this will continue to be a cycle that the disadvantaged children go through. If the children don't get the same education they may not pursue a higher education, therefore their children will be forced to go to the underfunded public schools and it will continue on. However, if the government steps in and offers a solution where everyone can be treated equally, regardless of income, everyone will benefit. “‘Whether it translates into smaller class sizes, a wider range of education programs, or additional supports for struggling students, full and fair funding has a real impact on students’ lives’” (PR Newswire).
In 2013, budget cuts in a school system of Akron, Ohio caused schools to have to cut their fine arts programs; therefore, over half of the school’s population had no choice but to change their schedule with different courses. To prove that this budget cut was not working to their school board, a small group of students conducted a study with all of the students that were once involved in the fine arts programs before they had been cut. Some of these questions included: “ever since cuts were made, have you begun participating in drugs?” and “has your overall school performance dropped since you have had the arts?” Afterwards, for reassurance that the students in question were not lying, the group asked common core teachers if they had noticed
Supposingly, art and musics aren’t known as core classes or classes of importance causing those subjects to the abolishment in schools. Schools also will believe art and music are unnecessary and would think cutting those classes would benefit the school which mostly doesn’t and has kids who don’t excel in subjects like english or math to have no
Using student-level data from Massachusetts, I find that each one-day increase in the student absence rate driven by bad weather reduces math achievement by up to 5 percent of a standard deviation, suggesting that differences in average student attendance may account for as much as one-quarter of the income-based achievement gap in the state. Conversely, instructional time lost to weather-related school closings has no impact on student test scores. What could explain these apparently conflicting results? It appears that teachers and schools are well prepared to deal with coordinated disruptions of instructional time like snow days but not with absences of different students at different times. In short, individual absences and not school closings are responsible for the achievement impacts of bad weather.
For are future athletes, most can’t practice or even do a sport because homework takes up most their day, causing students to lose the privilege of doing an outside activity. Though, many would say doing homework keeps the school mode of learning and prepared for the next day. The final reason why homework can be harmful is homework can even cause family issues or illness. Many would say “How can homework cause family issues?”, well there is one main reason.
However, there is another way to get their children educated without sending their children to any education industry. Homeschooling is a method whereby parents schooling children at home rather than at school that is available to parents whose children have health problems which requires close attention by the guardian, or parents who concern on the negative impacts of poor academic quality of schools, peer pressure, and school violence on their children. Social problems in schools seemed to be more common due to the larger numbers of students
The reason why these schools were much more successful than the previous attempts at an integrated school system was lack of involvement from both the church and the state . These schools were originally independent and would rely on charitable institutions for funding. These schools were sought after by parents and without the involvement of the church or the state, they were able to ensure that it was the type of integrated school system they wanted to send their children too. One religion would not be viewed as greater than another and it allowed their children to interact with one another without their religion separate them.
Standardized testing has not improved education in America. Standardized tests have been issued in schools all across the nation for years now. Some people like them and some people don’t. They do not help the student learn more information than they would without the tests. The U.S. has dropped from 18th highest scores in schools in the world to be in the 30’s on almost all of the subjects on the test.
What China was trying to achieve with the One Child Policy was fix a problem they had caused in the first place, when, Mao Zedong, encouraged having more children to have more future workers, and discouraged the use of birth controls (Intro). The One Child Policy came into place in 1980, effected the ethnicity of Han Chinese and was definitely not one of China’s best ideas. It caused many hardships for the citizens of China. The policy was unnecessary for many of three reasons: the fertility rate was already dropping, there is a huge gender and age imbalance, as well as it is to blame for some of the youth’s social issues. From 1970 to 1979 there was a big reduction in fertility rates in China from 5.8 to 2.7, which was prior to the One
Therapy can be used for many different reasons. Whether it be for one’s physical or mental and emotional health. Both have the potential to help young people and harm young people. Conversion/Reparative therapy is used to treat people who have same sex attractions and is meant to change one’s sexuality to a heterosexual. Some believe that it is wrong to like someone of the same gender, or wrong to change gender.
