Lessons in class are rushed and left unfinished due to the tight time restraints placed upon teachers. They are given an inadequate amount of time to teach the excessive amount of material given to them to cover and, more often than not, they fall behind in their lesson plan, leaving them unable to teach all of the topics in each of their classes. Teachers struggle in reciting the entire lesson within the given time. With the extra fifteen to twenty minutes on their hands they could
For parents who work, it can be hard to find a babysitter for their children when they have a couple days off of school. McCracken had a mom that taught in a traditional school, but she and her sister were in a year round school so they were by themselves for a long time. When they had 2 to 3 weeks off of school it was hard to find a babysitter for a short amount of time (“The Pros and Cons of Year-Round Schools”). Additionally, most year round schools have 45 days of learning, then they have a 15 day break, before they go back to school again (“Year-Round Education Program Guide”). This schedule puts so much pressure on parents to find a good babysitter for 15 days only, then having to find another babysitter 45 days later.
Four day school weeks are sometimes a financial strain to low income families with younger children. Even though some families struggle others are very welcoming of having an extra day where there child can work for the family business a come
At this point in school, there is short time off on breaks. As it is very different than what schools do right now. For example, schools with year round school get much more time off.” For year round school 45 days equals 15 days off or 3 weeks off, 60 days equals out to be 20 days off .The
After the first period of class, which nothing much really happened but explaining school rules and such. I began to realize that high school feels the same as middle school expect there were four times the students than there is in eighth grade; walking down the halls I can feel eyes of the higher grades scoping not only myself but a majority of the other freshmen knowing we are struggling to find our scheduled classes. Lunch finally comes around I start opening up to other students to make and try to make some friends, I remember lunch and after were my favorite times back then my classes were easy and so chill
Quarterlies take 5 days to fully administer for all four subjects, and it can take even longer for make-ups. And if all the quarterlies throughout the entire year are counted, it could take a whopping 20+ days to administer fully. To add insult to injury, supervisors have made an insensible rule that prohibits other assessments to be given to students during quarterly week. This rule applies to tests that are not even related to the target quarterly subject, like prohibiting a math test to take place on the same day as the english quarterly. This not only takes away a significant time from the school year, but severely increases the stress students and teachers face.
First of all, the island offers a totally different education, they start from 8:00 in the morning and could go all the way to 4:30 pm or 6:30pm depending in the grade that they are in. in class it’s a whole different view 99% of the student are paying attention to the teacher that they have in the front but at the same time they receive a free time to refresh their memories and not overwhelmed them with too much studies they receive free time 2 times a day for 15 minutes and a break for lunch of
Each class is 90 minutes long, instead of 45 minutes. The length of the classes gives us more time to learn. Instead of taking two classes to learn one subject, we can use one class to learn everything we need for that subject. 45 minutes feels too rushed and instead of getting class time to work and ask questions about the work, we get it sent home for homework. Because we have an alternating
A study of 9,000 students in eight Minnesota public high schools showed that after Minnesota pushed back their school start times by thirty minutes, grade point averages and standardized test scores improved (Brody). School attendance also increased with later start times (Boergers). Despite the benefits of having later start times for schools, many schools are resisting the change. Even though the AAP recommends a later start time for schools, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that only 14% of all middle schools and high schools follow the 8:30 a.m.
This makes an athletic trainer’s work hours irregular. According to the Campus Explorer website athletic trainer’s usually work longer hours because of practices, games, and competitions. They may have to go into the night, depending on what time everything ends, and weekends (“Athletic Trainers.”). One question I asked when interviewing Angela Snowberger was what the hours were like. If work in a high school, like I wish to, I might go in around 1:00pm and stay there until the last practice is over, which could be around 9:00pm (Snowberger).
An especially crucial obstacle that can arise while having the same four classes everyday for a full semester is the possible one year gap of a certain subject. For instance, a student can have math first semester of his sophomore year, but may have to wait until the second semester of his junior year to take a more advanced class that will build on what he had previously learned. This long break can lead him to forget certain key concepts. Therefore, his grades may be disrupted, as well as his performance on college admissions tests, such as the SAT. This type of dilemma has a fairly simple solution: implement A and B days.
High school testing is noticeably easier than college for general reasons. High school teachers give you more quizzes and tests but they only cover the material the teacher has covered for that chapter; college professors will give you large amounts of material over a long period of time and expect you to remember and pass the one of the few tests you 'll get all year. There is always a make up test in high school but in college not so much, teachers aren 't too lenient about make up tests when they give you a week in advance to do it. Teachers will often reschedule the test in case of school events with conflicting dates. College professors don’t care they just want the work turned in, I’ve had a situation where the team was at the hotel and we didn 't have wifi and the teacher said I couldn 't make up the test even though I told him I was not going to be on campus.
If I chose to play games or extracurricular activities I knew I had to juggle my time of play versus school. If I completed school for the week in the three days then I had a four day weekend, but if I didn 't take care of that schoolwork then that meant I had no weekend and privileges were taken away. By me knowing what my work was in advance for the week, it was my responsibility to accomplish that goal. I believe that homeschool made me mentally and physically sharp because I had more time to run and play in the yard and go to field trips like the space center, the Houston zoo, museums, robotic competitions and horse rescue rehabilitation ranches. As a family we were able to take vacations and trips when most students were in school which allowed more attention on tours at points of interest.
In a five-day school week, I set aside two days as rest days, where I will only read and take notes on assigned school books. I plan for the upcoming three days that I will work on my educational goals, and enjoy my personal life. By setting aside personal time to enjoy life I have no excuses for distractions once I begin my school assignments. The three days that I have left are specifically planned and dedicated to my educational goals.
