This puts teachers and students under a great amount of pressure to ensure the test scores are high. By using standardized tests to measure educational quality this causes several issues. For one, these tests use questions that do not pertain to information taught in school. This means students have to either know something already or it needs to be taught at home. Consequently, neither of those situations is something that teachers can help with since it is up to the student to learn.
Harpo Allen Middle School Scenario Reflection 1. Describe some approaches that could be used to establish a culture of high expectations for students and staff performances at Harpo Allen Middle School. • First, as a new principal, you will need to acquire an understanding of and appreciation for the culture of the school, then, use your leadership style (such as being a team leader) in order to gain the trust and respect of the staff and students. • Conduct a school climate survey of faculty, parents, and students to gauge how much of the learning process I taking place and what measures need to be incorporated insure that high quality teaching/learning is taking place for the entire school. • Create PLCs to promote high expectations among
Although his ultimate vision is to see local economies and communities flourish, using the food industry as an analogy makes the possibility of survival in smaller communities seem much more plausible. Although McKibben’s sample size for his year of eating locally was a family of one, it demonstrated that surviving on local economies, on local food, is more than possible. It must be noted that this change would not just benefit the environment, but, for McKibben, restructuring society into smaller, local communities may be necessary for humanity’s survival (McKibben 227). McKibben’s focus on the ever-growing popularity of industrial agriculture helps to demonstrate the dangers of the “efficient” mindset society as been obsessed with since World War II. For McKibben the goals of constant growth have been warped and corrupted, and has damaged the environment and society as a whole.
Another way that late start school would affect the community is that both teachers and parents would have less free time after-school. This would be bothersome because teachers have to prepare lesson plans and parents often have to help their children with homework. Since teachers would have less after-school time and most businesses aren’t open at 8 o'clock in the morning more teachers would have to take time to off to go to appointments. This would cause substitutes to be called in and would slow down the efficiency of the classroom. Yet another way that late start school would affect the community is the ability of high schoolers to get jobs.
First, college graduates are able to get better job opportunities. According to the article, “New School year old story,” college graduates will have more job opportunities and have a higher pay than a high school graduate and going to college lessen the amount of unemployment. Having more job opportunities means that graduates have jobs that can help graduates pay their debt off so they can live their life without a school debt making it hard on them. If one has a professional degree (as a doctor or attorney.He or she can make $612 more per week than someone with a bachelor degree, (“New School year, old story”). College graduates with degrees earn $22,000 more per year than a high
In fact, alternative education might be the best option for current high school graduates, as it costs significantly less than a four-year college education and looks more attractive to prospective employers. Overall, it is important to consider whether the debt can be paid off after graduating and if getting a good job is a realistic expectation. That being said, even with the enormous tuition rates, more people than ever are going to college. Since a bachelor’s degree has become a cultural expectation, some people are forced to choose between getting a degree or being looked down upon for the rest of their lives. This forces people who possess a different skillset than the one colleges are looking for to pursue bachelor’s degrees, even though they would be a better fit for some different higher education institution, like a professional school.
Students shouldn’t be paid for grades for multiple reasons. It causes pressure to inflate grades and causes conflicts at home. Also, school are wasting money by paying students for simple responsibilities of life. Plus, paying them will lower their academic performance later in life. Paying students for grades is not a good idea, as it has lots of downsides to it; students will stress out, it wastes school money, and lowers academic performances.
If hearing issues remains untreated, this might post a number of serious consequences in term of social communication as well as academic performance that can bring severe concerns later in life. Poor listening conditions classroom may limit the students’ access to educational information and knowledge. Students with hearing impairment are often thought have weaker classroom performance or lack of participation in class. A lot of HI students were considered and labeled ‘problematic’ by the teachers in an ordinary classroom due to the misunderstanding of the real issues that the student is going through (Leverett, 2002). The fact is, a HI student has difficulty focusing because of the distractions of noise from the surrounding environment, or they just simply can’t hear well for most of the time.
Outside activities are so important to kids development, and homework doesn 't allow many kids to do so. As a student myself I experience so much stress just from my schoolwork/ homework. Also, many studies show that too much homework can actually do the opposite effect than intended. On the contrary, not all teachers give too much homework, but the added amount from all my classes ends up being too much. As Lily Tomlin said, “"I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides
People can be making double the amount just because they have a basic college degree. In the future there will be less and less jobs that require only a high school degree. People are starting to believe that college is not important, but people are more likely to get a job faster. There are so many colleges that people can go to that are cheap. College is a big investment, but those will be higher-skilled, they can get scholarships to help with the cost, and they will be paid more.
By implanting this system, PVMS stock levels will be more accurate this will enable PVMS to order the right amount of stock which will save them money also makes it easier to monitor the business. On the other hand, for staff to check stock on the stock database, they need the internet which sometimes may go down resulting in customers going to other stores therefore, will result in PVMS losing profit. To improve, PVMS should set up a virtual private network which will reduce the amount of people using the internet However, a negative impact on providing access to the PVMS network from the internet can result in a higher risk of unauthorised viruses Therefore; PVMS should upgrade their systems yearly to prevent any malfunctions and important data leaks. A negative impact on PVMS is that they have to employ network managers to prevent any virus accessing the PVMS data In addition, staffs need training to be familiar with the system to operate it effectively which can be
If it was free, people wouldn’t worry about paying, students would work harder to get accepted into big schools, and it would give people in a lower class have more opportunities. The first reason college should be free is, that people won’t worry about paying when they’re not given a scholarship. There are several people who don’t even go to college and end up starting up their own businesses because they know what they’d go through and they couldn’t pay. They
When college searching, most prospective students dream of attending a large, beautiful campus; they do not take into consideration how much money their dream school cost. This simple mistakes leads to thousands of adults drowning in college loans years after earning their degree. Attending a community college easily solves the problem by helping students who want to reach their goal of earning a degree without the outrageous cost of universities. Junior colleges are more economical than universities because they are more convenient, less expensive, and less demanding. Because community colleges are more conveniently located than an university, avoiding extra cost becomes easier by commuting.
Raising the minimum wage is something that should’ve been done a long time ago. By doing so, raising wages will actually help solve this as credit reliance will drop, and people with newfound spending power will be able to go out and buy what they want and desire. Let’s say that a student (specifically a college student) has to worry about grades, and can hardly balance their work-life. But however, that student can’t quit his/her job because that person needs help to pay for their college tuition. Financial Aid is helping her lower her tuition money, but however will soon graduate with a large amount of student-loan debt, which is a college student’s worst nightmare!
In the next few years, I would like to gain some experience in any kind of sports management to help build my resume and make me look more appealing to companies. I would like to then gain some more experience in the field by working in Sports Information to really start to understand the job and what I will be responsible for. I would hopefully be able to find a job on campus or nearby that will do just that. In the long run, I would like to find an entry level job out of college, such as an assistant SID or just helping out in an office for an SID to gain knowledge from them. I would like this job to lead me into my own job as an SID, perhaps in a smaller college to try and get the hang of things.
