High school and College students’ ethics have elevated over the years and has only increased. Cheating has been a tremendous epidemic for a long period of time and recently skyrocketed because of the creation of smartphones and electronics. Students who are academically dishonest are usually in honors and advanced placement classes because they are challenged and learning a more rigorous curriculum than the other students who are in college prep courses. The reason for their actions is because of academic stress students receive on a daily basis to obtain admirable grades, so they can go to a well-known college. In the article Nurturing Ethical Collaboration, the author Alexis Brooke Redding justifies why students cheat in high school and college courses.
However, evidence shows that standardized tests lead to stress, most importantly, among teenagers, and most information is not carried on past high school. Our current test-driven curriculum should be replaced with a teaching-learning model that better prepares students for adulthood. Using standardized tests as the principle measuring tool of a student’s success is misleading the future leaders of our country to focus more on preparation for these tests that ill-prepare young people for the true problems and questions in the real world. Standardized tests, such as the ACT and the SAT, have been used for over fifty years. However, more, now than ever, standardized tests have become a huge role in a student’s education and future.
In the 2000’s it was only a single book to study. The test prep industry has grown, and so has the experience of tutors. Tutors help to improve scores and the understanding they possess of the tests’ construction. Current students also have many more options such as a wider range of books, more tutoring companies, even iPhone apps. Today, high school students are more stressed than ever.
Everyone has gone through the pressure of bad grades and everyone can remember from their teenage years the hardships of getting good grades but are grades really something that should even be in the school system? Why are grades given in schools but can cause depression and even suicidal thoughts? People have already dropped out of school and are doing amazing. Some people even struggled in school but are very rich and powerful. At 16 Richard Branson founded Student Magazine, a small newspaper company that was for kids at his school (Later it would become Virgin Records).
Standardized Testing is a great way to see your students growth throughout the years, For these reasons there should not be more testing in schools. these hours) of testing show stress and damage to their education.

A student from Aspen says “How she feels rushed in school when covering topics,” I sometimes also feel rushed to cover topics” ( Levey 2).
A new survey by McAfee found that one-third of high school students admit to using cell phones or other devices to cheat in school. Everyone has the capability to do the work, but some students might feel pressured by their families to keep their grades up. Some students start to feel overwhelmed because of all the work and decide to cheat, even though they know it’s wrong. Many students have academic scholarships, and if they can’t keep their grades up, they know that they could possibly lose their scholarships. I strongly encourage students to manage their time productively and to surround themselves with positive people owing to the fact that if one gets associated with the wrong crowd he or she will be more likely to cheat.
However, when school education became universalized, the adolescence period was extended naturally and the time of becoming an adult was delayed. The school is a place to prepare to be an adult, but it is also a slow-growing incubator and moratorium device. Furthermore, global economic turmoil has become another significant factor that adds up more of difficulties for youth to fully develop into adults. Economic crisis causes young people to have their own house and become economically independent, hence it makes hard for them to leave parents' home and delays the age of marriage. This has become one of the main social research topics in recent era.
Many students look at it as a time to laugh and play, but they forget the main purpose of school: to learn. The problem is that students are falling more and more behind in core subjects. Many educators believe that adding time to the school day will help increase test scores and educate students who are struggling. Others believe that lengthening the school days won’t have a real impact.
Research has shown that the increase in academics during the early childhood years has been on the rise for years. Shepard and Smith (1988) argued that “formalized activities that occur to early deprive children of time to learn from play”(p. 137). School is becoming nothing more than a factory, where students pump out worksheets at their desks. Children are not able to socialize with each other, so children are lacking the social skills that they would gain through play in early childhood.
