“Homework has been a part of students’ lives for so long that the idea of not doing it can seem incredible, surreal, or even impossible. But if [people] stop to think about it, the truth is that homework is not necessary” (Mathprepa). Seeing that there are enough school hours in one day, students are puzzled on why homework is called for. In this case,
Several pupils have to work while are studying because they do not have alternative. Nevertheless, with the job the students do not have the enough time for the school. In college, professors many times make tests and almost every day the students must do a lot of homework. College is a full time job and with evidence put forth by numerous statistics, I strongly disagree that students must work while they are in college.
The amount of time the athletes put in in a week of practices is a lot of time out of the student 's day. Division I players on average spend 44.8 hours a week on their sport — playing games, practicing, training and less than 40 hours of their time in spent in the actual classroom. That amount of time is the equivalent to working a full time job. This shows how even though they’re not getting paid they’re working as much to someone who is
If a teen’s mindset is all work and no play, they might miss the fun that comes out of high school. When teens work long hours they’ll spend their time studying, working, and sleeping rather than enjoy their time as a high school student. They can miss any possible trips with friends, parties, school dances, etc., and let their childhood go to waste all because they wanted some extra cash to spend. A teen’s motive during high school should be to enjoy their time as a kid and achieve their lifelong aspirations, not chasing after a minimum wage paying job. To answer the question on whether teens should work, I’d say no, enjoy your life as a kid while you can and work when you actually have to because you can’t stay in high school
In Malaysia, it is common thing to see children carrying a backpack especially during school day. We can tell that their backpacks are heavy because they will bend forward while carrying backpack. Unfortunately, carrying a heavy backpack among schoolchildren has not yet become an issue or concern or threat in Malaysia. In United States, approximately 40 million students carry backpack to school (Pascoe et al., 1999). According to Iyer, it is reported that 6 out of 10 students who participated in ergonomic study conducted, having chronic back pain due to carrying heavy backpacks (Iyer, 2001).
Parents say that by going to single-sex schools could help the student focus heavily on academics,however what the parents don’t realize is that by going to single-sex school doesn’t help prepare the student for the world. But by going to a co-ed school it gives the student the opportunity to get used to being around and interacting with other genders. Although single-sex education helps students focus heavily on academics, students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the student’s social skills, it's too expensive to get single-sex education and the student will struggle to adjust being around other genders when going to college or getting a job. Students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the
For instance, a student could be given a lot of homework and not all students have the time to get it done. They could have other extra curricular activities to do, like sports, chores, practice of some sort etc. It is found that too much homework could cause too little sleep. In this case, the average school hours for most districts are about 8-9am till 2-3pm. Usually, most kids spend about 6.5-7 hours of school from monday-friday, not only are students in school for many hours but for 5 days and homework just adds more hours at home.
“Did you ever ask your parents why you went to school? If you have then you probably heard “It’s your job.” If that is true, shouldn’t you get paid for your job?” Students should not get paid for having decent grades since it will corrupt the scholar. The offer will make them inattentive and not succeed in college.
Nationwide reform of such a small topic compared to other more detrimental issues plaguing the nation makes it unlikely that high schools across the country will make the changes necessary for class rank to accurately display students’ abilities and work ethic. In addition to the flaws with the actual system, class rank causes many problems with students in schools. Class rank encourages competition among students, which causes stress and pressure to be the best. This pressure is unhealthy because students put their grades above their physical health. Even though class rank is supposedly an accurate way to calculate who will succeed in college and who will not, the effects on students and the inconsistencies in how class rank is calculated outweighs the benefits and proves that it will benefit students nationwide if class rank is no longer
Work. Extracurricular activities. Snapchat. You’ve got a lot going on. In fact, in a survey we conducted of more than 1,300 students, 74 percent of high school students and 68 percent of college students said their number one challenge was balancing their responsibilities.
High school offers many opportunities for students to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities. These activities include athletics to the fine arts. A majority of students prefer sports such as football, basketball, and volleyball over theater and other fine arts. Some of the sports high school students have an opportunity to partake in have trouble gaining sufficient numbers of participants. Sports such as hockey, softball, and until recently, soccer, are not school sanctioned; therefore, some students are unable to participate due to a variety of factors.
Kaysie Rich Mr. Dibattista ENGL A111 619 September 25,2016 Literacy is Not Just Reading and Writing Creating art is one of the many ways our brains can go on autopilot and deal with the stress everyday events may cause. It isn’t just drawing or painting; in fact, art can be defined as visual, auditory, or performing acts that convey unique and creative thoughts to be appreciated for their beauty by oneself or others. The artist’s thoughts become the art through their personal hardships, struggles, and overall awareness of oneself. In her essay The Sanctuary of School, Lynda Barry, an art major and successful artist, demonstrates her founding love and freedom through art provided by her teacher in her classroom as a young child.
Should School Have Open Campus Lunches Seventy percent of all high schools in America have closed campus lunches. At U.S. Grant High School they are one of the schools that do not allow students to leave campus for lunches. When students do leave the campus, they get an one hundred dollar truancy fine the first time. The next time is five hundred dollars.
There are many ways of staying out of trouble. You can stay home, hang with the right crowed, just do not do dumb things. One way that has been proven by many would have to be playing sports in or out of school. Around 1852 when Massachusetts became the first state to require all kids to go to school, in 1917 the final state passed similar laws. In 1903 new york created an athletic league for boys, later on in 1910 17 other cities across the U.S. followed creating their own leagues.
The Title IX is a law that requires all education programs, mainly sports, that are federally funded to have gender equality. In 1906 the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) was created for formatting and enforcing rules in men's football, but it soon became the ruling body for college athletics. The NCAA was great for men but not so much for women, women did not get athletic scholarships and there were no championships for women's teams. In 1972 the Title IX was signed by President Nixon and passed, allowing more women to join sports teams and get college degrees. Currently there are more than 2.6 million girl athletes in high school and more than 150,000 in college.
