Most schools would suspend both students right away. What if one student in the fight had a good home life, his parents punished him, and he never got suspended again, but maybe the other student’s parents did not care, he would just simply get some time off of school, and continue to act out. If all students were talked to about what they did wrong and punished inside of school, there may be a chance to drop the percentage of kids that get in trouble. Yes, it may not be the school’s responsibility to punish the kid, but if they do not and neither do the parents, then who will? Giving out school suspensions may give the student that needs to be punished the most, time off from school, which is what they would prefer.
I know, having an after school job helps students while applying for college, but it won’t help a lot because it will ruin the student’s grades. Students should focus on their grades (school), any part-time job or extra-curricular activities should be

In the early 1900’s Americans started to experiment with year round school but it has just became popular in the last two decades. Many schools decided to switch because of the drastic decrease in students state test scores from the end of the school year compared to when they come back from summer vacation. School districts should consider switching to the year round schooling schedule rather than the traditional schedule because it will cut down on brain drain, many schools that switched noticed a significant
Students need to take less standardized tests. As said in the article The Secret To Fixing Bad Schools “students need to become thinkers not test takers.” They should be able to take more classes they are interested in rather than classes they need just for graduation required credits. Schools need to have more academic achievement appreciation rather than only appreciating the athletic students. Although Bostein points out America’s education system seems to be the main issue in preparing our children for the future, he is a bit too extreme with this ideas. In Botstein 's article Let Teenagers Try Adulthood he explains how high schoolers are not in the “real world” “They could then enter the real world, the world of work or national service, in which they would take a place of responsibility alongside other adults in mixed company.” Botstein also states that we need to graduate at the age of 16 now to
It is possible that this heightened restriction could reduce school shootings due to the idea that students could not legally purchase firearms. Some believe that if all firearms were confiscated and made illegal it would drastically reduce the crime rate. The trade off with this proposal is that while overall crime could potentially see a reduction, the percentage of crimes that are considered violent would increase
Students don’t take advantage of the opportunities they are provided in high school, like dual-enrollment, that could save them time and money in college. Every year students are given the opportunity to do dual enrollment which would save them hundreds to thousands in college, but most miss their chance and are required to take remedial classes in college. According to statistics, “Complete College America reports that almost 50% of the students entering 2-year colleges are required to take remedial classes. ( Rath Par.15)”. To further explain, due to students not taking advantages in high school are required to take remedial classes they most-likely took in high school and pay around triple the amount.
If school uniforms were a thing there would be less bullying in the schools because kids that didn’t have the new gear would not get bullied about what they were wearing If students wear uniforms there test scores would higher because they wouldn’t have the distraction of having the nice clothes. People say that uniforms take away students freedom of expression but they still have the freedom to express themselves through talk and action. Some people think that uniforms are a big downfall for students but they actually can help students more because it helps them academically. Uniforms can take away students freedom, However students feel more apart of their school community wearing uniforms. “In Long Beach, CA, after two years of a district-wide K-8 mandatory uniform policy, reports of assault and battery in the district 's schools decreased by 34%” - CITE- “Should students have to wear uniforms” This shows that school uniforms should be mandatory and are very important when it comes to learning.
Thirteen years of young people’s lives are spent in school and many say these are the best years of their lives. However,school brings rules and boundaries including the need to wear school uniform which many, including myself, believe are unnecessary. School uniform is believed to allow teachers and other members of staff to easily identify students within or without the school, which is a safety precaution.Primary school students, I agree should wearschool uniform as they are younge rand are more likely to disappear or become lost when out on a school trip.However, secondary school students arrive at high school with expectations of being treated more like adults, but this is a larger rule by the rule of wearing a school uniform as it stops you from being your own person. The younger years of people’s lives are always the most vulnerable and discovering. Younger people begin to try and find their own personality and make them selves feel as though they fit in with the other young people that surround them.
Memories do succeed to help us learn from our mistakes from the past memories. Our mistakes can help in the future it could help us achieve other goals. Remembering a memory like the first time going to school and having to do the first test and forget to study.
