First, standardized tests cause stress among students. Students who do not have to take standardized tests will not have as much stress as students who take theses tests. According to Bill Maxwell, who did the research, “Each year, thousands of high school students stress out as they prepare to take the SAT or ACT tests to get into college. Many researchers suggest that the singular importance placed on these tests has produced a culture of questionable meritocracy and unfairly blocked thousands of otherwise deserving students from entering the schools of their choice”(Maxell). Accordingly, this shows that students are under stress while preparing for standardized tests.
Ever since I can remember I’ve hated Homework. Almost every kid and even most adults I know despise and resent it. Too much homework can cause stress, bad behavior/attitude, sleep deprivation, lower self-esteem, and poor social skills. There are many statistics to back the argument that too much homework is harmful. In 2013, research conducted at Stanford University found that students in high-achieving communities who spend too much time on homework experience more stress, physical health problems, a lack of balance in their lives, and alienation from society.
Only you can choose which way your life should turn so choose it wisely. Not everyone is lucky to have chosen the right path for themselves thus there are many college drop outs each year, academically they couldn’t cope with the heavy loads of subjects, its mainly because they didn’t seek help from the counselors when they should have in the beginning of their college first year, nowadays the colleges have started more activities along with studies, one should always take active part in college sports and other activities for recreation in between their studies. The first year college days will slowly turn to be more lively and welcoming, you will wake up each day to find a new thing to do, you will start deciding about what you actually want to be in future. You will find your self to be more focused about your future prospects, you might be attracted towards a particular subject and put more effort to get a degree on that. College life is all about learning about your self, it’s the time when you will decide what you really want to be in
We are one of the most trouble-making classes in our school, so much so that we almost risked not going. I guess that makes us special. Maybe. Once we landed it finally hit everyone that they were traveling with their friends and without parents, so if anything, that was the moment we had to be most responsible. The Washington Monument was the first thing I pictured every time I thought of living in Washington, so naturally every time the bus passed by, I would try to snap a picture.
This is a big debate that has just recently come into light. Although suspension has been around for many years, schools should stop suspending their students because, suspending students is harmful to their academic career, increases the chances of a student dropping out and it does not teach students how to properly
Darrian Sargent A person experience that made me see life differently Darrian Sargent A personal experience that made me see life differently Something that has caused me to see life differently, was during my sophomore year of high school. It all started from a situation that happened in my sophomore of high school. I was giving a presentation front of my classmates and as I got to the front of the classroom my anxiety kicked in, I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know that all of this was going to happen. As I was standing there trying to give my presentation but I couldn’t move on with my presentation because my anxiety had kicked in and was causing a dilemma, as I was standing there trying to give my presentation I began to sweat and my classmates began to notice that I was sweating, the minute they saw that I was sweating they all began to make fun of me. I was so embarrassed I didn’t know what to do.
I personally have felt this way in college with the last semester I took. At times my stress level with all of my assignments was too much and made me second guess if all of this stress and money going towards the work I was putting in was worth it. As a college student, I’ve hit rock bottom to the point where I’ve wanted to quit, but then I realized once I finish all that’s required for my degree I will have my diploma that no one can take from me. College is not easy, nor inexpensive. And from experiencing both high school and college, I have seen a huge difference in the two.
If the students are not putting the work into the senior year, parents worry that they do not get anything useful out of this schooling. The problem students face in senior year is they are constantly being surrounded by younger classmates who they do not know. Typically a class is closest to the class right above and beneath it. When one reaches senior year, the class before them are gone; meaning that the only class they still know and are friends with is the junior class. This can be hard because being around younger teenagers, does not prepare them for the following college years which they will spend with adults.
Meaning, students’ are being baited by the light at the end of the tunnel, turning their focus away from studying and maintaining a higher GPA to planning for their futures and thinking they can just breeze through the remaining weeks or semester of school. As such, one must understand the reason why students are spending an entire day “doing homework” and not accomplishing any homework. This is defined as “senioritis,” and can be an infectious plague effecting students regardless of their academic level. Prior to researching “senioritis” my assumptions of the term dealt primarily with the
And this agony led the researcher to search the reasons behind the failure and thereby reach the topic under consideration . Having a close experience of working in different government schools of Delhi for over a decade the reaseracher has figured out a major reason behind this failure that the society or community has played only a partial role in the process of education and has ignorantly overlooked its role of maintaining a symphony between itself and other stakeholders of the education system. The devastating outcomes of this ignorance can be seen in the form of increasing juvenile crime rates , increase in the number of drop outs and catastrophically low pass percentage in government schools of Delhi. If the society anticipates a better education which is not only society friendly but also environment friendly it has to take the responsibility on its shoulders to work harmoniously with schools to frame some sustainable developmental
