You get just as many days off at a year-round school as you would at a traditional school, just at a year-round school, it’s spreaded out through the year rather than all in one big break (The Pros and Cons of Year-Round School). Short breaks gives time for kids to have a better education and avoids kids getting too board over the long break. Yeah, you wouldn’t get to have 3 week vacations, but who does? Some kids say that they get a break right when they need it and it’s refreshing to them and they’re ready to listen (The Pros and Cons of Year-Round School). It would be easier for them to pick up where they left
Minghan Li Ms. Carmen Politics and International Relations 4B December 16, 2017 Is Online Education More Advantageous Than Traditional Education? As internet technologies advances, online courses rapidly grew in popularity. According a study of the Babson Survey Research Group, in 2014, there were more than 5.8 million students that are taking at least one online course in the US alone, which is approximately 28.4 percent of all enrolled students in the US (“Online Report Card: Tracking Online Education in the United States”). Although it is still in a quite early stage of development, online courses is said to offer the same, if not superior, education as on-campus courses. But is that really so?
If schools were year-long than students would have much more time to review information. As an example, a student will have a few more days to review or study because of the year-long school. Teachers will also have more time to plan lessons, which will make learning more understandable for the student. A teacher who has to rush a lesson plan will create a poor, hard to understand lesson; but a teacher with time, will create a well thought out lesson. Year long schools will allow for kids to be less distracted and more focused on school.
Although school year round could be good for some kids. Kids need a break from learning and from school. If we got a long break from school high schoolers could get jobs and actually work more hours than they would if they had to wait until they were out of school. If they had to wait until they were out of school they would only be working for a few hours. Then if we didn’t have school they could work more hours and make more money.
With year-round school, all of the costly things the school has bought and placed in the building would actually serve their purpose more often and attain the usage they should. All schools should participate in year-round school because children and faculty get more breaks, students forget things over summer break, and it would be efficient use of the school building. Year-round school schedules, such as the 45-15 plan, would be much more logic and effective for students and faculty in this day in time. Don’t you desire to have the most beneficial and knowledgeable school learning experience
Each year long schooling is different though, some have longer in school sessions with longer breaks. That process would continue throughout the entire year. Many people believe that with year long schooling students will not get as much education as they would at a more traditional school because of the amount of breaks. There have been studies that showed that students had greater progress when they came beak from a break. Therefore, teachers would be able to increase the pace of learning a little more and students would actually be getting more information.
If a student is academically inclined, then their senior year usually doesn't have a complete schedule because they have completed the classes they already needed to graduate. For that reason there is no need for the student to go through another year of high school when they have basically completed it. With the ability to graduate the student can continue to progress by working on classes needed to graduate college. Although, the student may not be ready to move and are not mentally prepared for the challenge. It comes down to the individual
School Year Round Why would anyone want to go to school a year-round? (Rhetorical Question) School should be a year-round because then students will not forget their learning, be more focused on their education and it will be easier to earn their credits in a shorter period of time. Firstly, A school year-round should be offered each year so students will not forget the learning. Many students that come back from their summer break most likely struggle on what they have learned, for instance, everyone ignores most of the subjects and methods that everyone discovered last year. Having a year-round school can allow students continually practice and build up their skills that will benefit them in the future.
Even though finances are a big problem for students, financial aid helps miraculously, and while attending college a person becomes more educated, as well as receives better opportunities. Money, the main thing blocking kids from college. Yes, money is an obstacle, however many programs, companies, groups and colleges offer scholarships and financial aid. My friends Rebecca is a high school senior who lives on her own already have the first three years of her college paid for through scholarships and financial aid. Even if Rebecca did not qualify for financial aid she could have taken out student loans and pay them back with money she earned from her job that she got because she went to college.
This will also save the time of both. Social interaction is where you don’t understand about the homework or even the lecturer slides to be asked in the group discussion through social Medias such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype and many more. In this method, students can save their time not to make any appointment with the lecturer and meet them physically. Some of the students are afraid to approach with lecturer or anyone physically and hence we have online learning can solve this problem. Then, some students or lecture can use online learning when they are sick or face some problem that’s cause them can’t take a attendance in
Mangan mentioned that students as well as schools would save money if more students signed up for MOOCs. "With more work done at home and online, students could spend less time on campuses, freeing up classroom space to accommodate more students, he said. That approach works well, he added, with remedial mathematics, where only about 10 percent of students who start courses end up getting two-year degrees within three years."(Mangan). She mentioned that students would spend more time at home working online which would cause students to spend less time on campus. The schools could then welcome more students to their schools since there would be more classroom space because of the students spending time at home.
Though we have outspoken students, we cannot forget about those who are shy and introverts. Because we now have access to email, discussion boards, and chat, this sort of eases one’s mind because no one is watching them as they speak. This also serves as motivation for students as they will become more comfortable in themselves. If one had to name disadvantages of technology, one would probably vent that technology has indeed made our students lazy and dependent. In my days of substituting, it was clear that most students couldn’t answer many math questions without having a cell phone or computer in front of them.
Tired of learning material during a school year, only to forget it during summer break? All-year school is becoming more popular throughout the United States. School systems are rapidly changing to this new phenomenon. If students went to school year round, there would a more efficient time schedule, less material forgot, and in the end, the students would have more days off. Every day, students struggle with the problem of time.
Breaks like these give student and teachers much needed time to blow off the anger built up inside of them. The environment of schools with year-round schedules is much better because of it since students don’t have that anger built up inside of them and teachers are not frustrated at the students as much, “ Teachers who work for year-long schools say that it gives them a break when they are on the verge of a meltdown.” (Long). It also lowers the amount of students who get in trouble at school, "I haven 't had one student sent to the office all week. And I know why. We 've just had two weeks off, everyone is refreshed, remotivated and their fire has been rekindled."
Online classes are appealing to students of two-year institutions because they provide new opportunities and an ideal ease (Bambara et al.). However, the opposite tends to be true. Online classes show a correlation to student "attrition" (Carr, 2000). Bambara et al. recognized that the idealistic view of online courses (helping students become better with technology and offering convenience) is based off of opinions and not off of facts and data (Cox, 2005; Kozeracki, 1999).
