If the rule is accepted and the people have to get good grades than the kids have to worry a lot more then they need to. School might come first but if they are really good at the sport then they don 't need school if they play for a living. They don 't need school if they plan on making money off of there sports. They would have to get good grades to get into the team which makes them stress.
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.
As the school year starts, students seem to start off the year well but end up getting worn out as time goes by. Why? Some students have the belief that they were born smart and seem to give when faced with a tough situation in fear that it will make them look dumb, so they simply give up. However, it has been proven that having a fixed mindset can actually lead to failure. Student success is founded upon the encouragement teachers and parents give to students to have a growth mindset rather than have a fixed mindset and not accepting challenges.
The thought of bills adding up and not having enough money can cause anyone to feel stressed. If you are a parent, then you want the best education possible for your child. You want for them to go to the best school, get the best grades they possibly can and succeed in all their ventures. It’s hard to fulfil those wants if you simply cannot afford it. There’s enough stress in the average persons daily life and paying for an education should not add to it.
So in conclusion i feel Standardized tests can hinder more than help our students by limiting teaching, creating stress when it comes to graduating, putting a limit on learning for the student and teaching for the teachers. We need to have a second look at the real benefit of Standardized tests and if it is worth our students self
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.
Standardized testing is an issue with students fearful to fail the tests, with all the pressure and tension on them to overcome this predicament, as well as teachers ' jobs being in jeopardy. Most students from lower income families are at a disadvantage with this setup and groundwork for standardized tests, such as the SAT. A wealthier, more affluent family can buy higher quality and superior preparation books. Students even turn to various methods such as cheating, in order to overcome the tests.
While this may be true, sending children forward in their education without being properly prepared for the next grade level also hurts their self-esteem and makes them more likely to drop out. Moving a child on to the next grade level while the child is unprepared to handle the new requirements and higher work expectations is completely unfair to the student. Unprepared children are
Though it may not have this affect on all students, it would most likely affect those that already have little to no motivation to continue their education. A third obstacle would be the staff. If you were to cut down on staff their would be less jobs and a higher unemployment rate. These employees would reject the layoffs because to put it simply, it is a loss of a job that can not easily be replaced. By making them find new jobs it could cause an uproar.
So many students are under the impression that because they did not make a certain score on the ACT or the SAT they will not get into college, or if they do they will fail. The importance placed on high stakes test is damaging students confidence in their academic abilities and therefore reducing the amount of student’s that make it through college or even go to
George Orwell says that he writes because he has a “Desire to push the world in a certain direction, to alter other people’s idea of the kind of society that they should strive after.” In the book, How Children Succeed, Tough tries to push society into realizing that they have an effect on a child’s future. Tough accomplishes this goal by using setting, and studies and statistics as rhetorical strategies to provide his argument that the environment surrounding a child and how they’re raised can affect how successful they will be in adulthood. Each chapter of the book is broken down into mini chapters to help the reader better understand how to succeed.
