Many students need to have these classes because it may be their only motivation to stay in school. Teachers are told that they need to have differentiated learning, but that is hard to do when students need to constantly be drilling for math and reading passages. There is only so much differentiation that a teacher can do. With the standardizing of curriculum, the material has become less relevant and students need to be able to see how the material they are learning is going to benefit them in the long run. Kids who are living in poverty need more time, energy, love, and support than upper-class students, and the public school education system is not able to give them that.
More often than the public likes to believe, “social promotion” has become a fairly large part of education, specifically early and high school education. Every year, many children throughout the nation are being moved on to the next grade level without passing the previous education level. Over all, “social promotion” is doing more harm than good for various reasons. One of the main arguments of “social promotion” is pride against ability. A large group of people believe that retention hurts children’s self-esteem and makes them more likely to drop out of high school.
In my opinion, students in elementary school advancing to the next grade even though they have not successfully completed the lower grade, is not right. In my mind children, that fail should be required to learn the curriculum that all of the others did. It is not right for the child that failed to move on when all the other students have worked hard to get good grades so that they can move on and advance to the next grade. Keeping a child back will teach him/her some responsibility to work harder. It is not right to let a child fail, or socially promote them, and allow them to move on.
If it is known that literacy has a large impact on all students, and many students are falling behind in this area, why isn’t there a sense of urgency to fix the problem. The increase of tests seems to only show and perpetuate the problem, not solve
In addition, education modernization is for cultural reasons. At this point, people were trying to keep their cultural identity while still being involved in"the process of globalization. "According to Robinson, the dropout rates of schoolchildren are increasing substantially.The schools are more interested in the arts and dwindling; the school system find means to alienate millions of kids who do not see any purpose in going to school. Robinson related this to the increase in the cases of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The modern epidemic in America was to give improper medications to students because students could not focus on boring school lectures that do not attempt to occupy them.
It has already proved to be a success in many places around the globe and with more effort, the cases of child labor will greatly reduce. This will help children learn and create a respectable education foundation for themselves. Second, empowering deprived people through knowledge would go a long way in reducing cases of child labor. Parental literacy plays an important role in ensuring that the rights of children are upheld, and minors are not used as a source of labor. Empowering parents with this kind of knowledge can create a positive change in the society.
Mainstream educational reform initiatives designed to raise standards can be both a facilitator and a barrier to the education of children with learning needs. In many cases these two strands of policy development, inclusion on the one hand and higher standards on the other, do not necessarily make comfortable partners. On the one hand it can be argued that higher standards are good for all children because schools are held accountable for the progress of all learners. On the other hand, it has been argued that the difficulties children experience in learning are a consequence of unresponsive education systems. As a result children are often seen as having 'additional support needs ' when there is a discrepancy between what a system of schooling ordinarily provides and what the child needs to support their learning.
Under-crowded classes the positives are better test scores,fewer drop outs and higher graduation rates,especially for poorer children according to?Everyone knows students learn more in smaller classes, or do they?. But as a con more teachers are needed which many states believe they can 't afford right now.To answer this project STAR was made to see if smaller classes were better learning conditions,they had bad results because they hired inexperienced teachers. There was many budget cuts causing a school to only have a certain amount of teachers. These cuts mad classes bigger and harder to teach.These cuts made teachers at schools with small classes lose their jobs. The STAR project had the most effect in 1st grade out of kindergarten through 3rd grade.
Shorter as well as longer school days are being debated across the country. Although, shorter hours do pose some issues, there are many benefits. Public education should rethink how long students spend in school because students are overloaded, tired, and are not eager to learn. To start with, longer school hours causes students to be overloaded. After all, a student could have a hard
Homework, homework, homework. Homework causes hours of stress in young students’ lives. Homework should be lessened in high school and banned in grades below because it causes has an astronomical amount of cons compared to the pros. Homework will cause countless long-term complications and has numerous short-term struggles to go along with the buildup of stress that slowly gets enormous as the year advances. Homework can review previous content; on the other hand, it will cause more issues for the developing student than the review can help them learn content that they will soon forget in a couple days.
