From the NF article “Many teachers also say paying students for good grades creates conflict with students and teachers getting money.” This means that students will be bragging about how much money they get about getting good grades. This also means that teachers will be having problems with the kids. The effect on this is that kids will not get along because the other student will be bragging about how much money they got, and the other student might of not gotten as much money. In addition paying students affects the student and teachers relationships.
“I believe that some of this acting-out behavior is due to the pressure that is starting to be applied when the child starts in middle school and life-goals start to be identified.” (A Generation Struggling) In this example, this is not accurate because the rich kids actually can have standards to become successful, the Greasers do not set up expectations in education for themselves, they are rather expected to be drop out nobodies. This quote is reasonable because yes, Socs can be pressured ad not feel accepted or worth their parent’s expectations, which may be very difficult to deal with, but the Greasers don’t even possess standards of achievement in their lives. " Unfortunately, upon graduating from high school, a growing percentage of these affluent youth will discover the world is not circling around them.
Should teachers be quitting due to the stress of testing? No, because they don't really go through as much stress as the students do when they are testing and the teachers should also be able to handle these things and not just quit because they think it is too complicated(Occupytheory). Does it affect the way teachers teach their classes? Standardized tests do affect the way teachers teach because they can only teach certain things and not what they think that the students might need. Do to standardized testing the teachers have to teach what is on their guide to teach the students.
Yet if they are being paid for a grade, it is wasting parents money (Pay). If the paying is just for the makeshift, it is wasting money. The money that parents paid could used for their children’s future. (Introduction)(Intro) If students work hard in school, they can earn a reward for future, but if they being paid for grade, they earn reward at school but not in future (Good).
Going at a slower pace is not a good thing because then they won’t get to all the material that has to be covered. They also got less work done in lower class levels. This is why having classes combined with low and high will improve the amount of work being done for both. Not only does it make it fair if they are thought together, but also lower level students won’t feel as if they are not smart enough to be in a higher-level class since they are all mixed in one room. I remember as I was reading, I saw in of the readings state how some parents don’t want their high-level children to be in classes with low-level students and I disagree students
If all the students are worried about is getting good grades to get those scholarships, then they are in school for the wrong reason. I believe that the point of going to school is to learn material not to take the easy route to satisfy yourself by getting good grades. I would rather fail something and learn from it, than pass with flying colors and not learn anything at all just because I wanted the money. Yes there is more of a reward for getting good grades rather than learning the material but what are you really getting out of it if you are not learning anything. Rags to riches, which means you might be the rag and at the bottom while you are in school, but if you learn something in school and work hard you while eventually be on the rich side of things.
Scores are not true indications of student capabilities for reasons such as my personal story of test anxiety. Teachers feel they are only teaching the test, not the full necessary curriculum. All the stress and issues schools and teachers are faced, are left up on the students. Students are aware of the expectations given to score well on test. This causes stress for students and pushes their desire away from learning.
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades.
Teachers work so hard to train themselves to be able to teach students and interact with them. It is hard on teachers to deal with children who do not want to learn or could care less about what they are teaching. This creates emotional stress on teachers, very similar to that of professional athletes before big games. Teachers job security are determined by their students test performance, which can be unfair since some students just do not care. Professional athletes jobs can be determined by their performance as well, but the results lie in their hands.
The accountability of the scores is meant to encourage teachers to adopt better and more effective methods of teaching, as well as to urge students to work harder. However the effects are more detrimental. Because of testing, students are more likely to be frustrated and discouraged at having to move so fast to cover all the ground needed. If a student is having a bad day or just is not a good test taker, all anyone can say is “tough luck.” The teachers will only focus on the select subjects tested on, and then only the select aspects they believe will be covered in the testing.
The professors who are giving the students C’s who don’t earn them are being bias and not being fair to non-ELS students who work for their passing grades unlike the Sooleem students are just given a passing grade. The pass-fail grading system will give the ESL students a way to work to pass just like other students while non-ELS students can go about their classes seemingly like their other classes by working for the grade they earn. The ESL students won’t get to fly by class and not work, but easily pass and give enough effort to satisfy
This does not only include Madera High staff, yet school staff should start to pay more attention to who they think may be in trouble because school is basically a student 's second home and spend most of their time there. This is why school teachers have a big role in this. Based on this survey students think that the staff is not really of much help when in reality they should feel that they can seek help in them because teachers have a sense of authority and if the students trusted in the staff to tell them what is going on they could do something to maybe halt or change the course of how the bully impacts the student and end the problem or even yet a little advice on the part of the staff on what would be the right thing to do never hurts. There was a situation at Madera High school
It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them. The teachers told us so, and they frowned when they looked upon us”(21). Why is Quote #2 significant?: This quote is important because it shows that in this society it is not seen as a good thing to be smart, and it is especially frowned upon to be smarter than your peers. This government worries about people being smart because that could lead them to develop their own ideas, which they don’t want because they want everyone to think the same way so that they can control the people.
As “Education week 's” Ron Wolk’s has said, “The system failed to educate them adequately, and now it punishes them for not being educated. " Ron Wolk is stating that with a school district failing to educate its students, these students have to pay the price by failing the test. High Stakes testing may also affect the district. Low scores could result in the reorganization of schools or a shift of resources to charter schools or private-school vouchers. Who knew that one test could severely damage a community and school
Not students. Teachers.” This may cause the principle to get involved, if the teachers are not providing a good positive example, then the students will just follow and never be able to learn and succeed. If the student is doing all their work and still not succeeding in their classes, the teacher who is showing such habits must be distracted from their job. Such as grading all the work assigned to the students.
