If a parent has gone to college the expectations are normally heightened. Children are expected to do well in school and earn the best grades to go off to college and earn a well working occupation. Having a parent who has gone to any type of college and understands what is going on in schools could help the child succeed in class. If a parent understands what is going on they could help the child with the work, lessening their troubles and teaching them how to do the lesson, advancing the understanding of its general
that it’s a “Yes and No.” (Murray 235), and the answer really is that complex. Murray writes that, “College looms so large in the thinking of both parents and students because it is seen as an open sesame to a good job. […] When high-school graduates think that obtaining a B.A. will help them get a higher-paying job, they are only narrowly correct. […] Employers value the B.A.
Job employment rates rise and decline, but having a liberal arts degree boosts one’s chance of a job. Ungar states, “It is far wiser for students prepare for change—and the multiple careers they are likely to have—than to search for a single job track that might one day become a dead end” (Ungar, 2017, p. 227). Not every individual receives the job they desire—foolish people assume that their desired careers start once they receive their degree. Although not every individual receives the job he/she wants, students who have a liberal arts degree produce better chances of adapting in a fluctuating workplace. Ungar states, “It promotes the idea of listening to all points of view and not relying on a single ideology, and examining all approaches to solving a problem rather than assuming that one technique or perspective has all the answers” (Ungar, 2017, p. 230).
Schools consists of varieties of teachers , who are responsible for teaching and caring for the students throughout the day. People may argue that schools should support both individuality and conformity to an extent.These two goals are completely contradicting to one another, the betterment of individuals and the betterment of society as a whole. I argue that schools need to focus on individuality more than any else. Schools fail to do this by enforcing dress codes, having mandatory classes and control of the school day structure. Dress codes are claimed to help students focus on the lessons rather than each other.
Students have to attend school are required to get excellent grades, as well as having classes in the afternoon in pursuance of a being admitted to a top university. The working youth struggling to help their family's financial problems has barely any time to study for regular classes but what about the other study time required for the test required for their college degree. After a lot of educational reforms, is the gap between the minorities and the average student closing; and how can one test decide a person's future? In the 1600s parents did not care about their children's education, consequently, the first education laws were passed. Children were required to memorize and understand the bases of their religion and the laws of the colony, ergo the first standard for education had been set.
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
Individuality should be encouraged to the point where students feel fulfilled, are creative, and can stand out amongst others in future occupations and colleges. Conformity should be enforced only to the point where it isn’t affecting students’ mental and physical health due to loss of sleep, increases sociability, and teaches responsibility and independence. This could be done by changing school’s scheduling to have a later start time, provide the students with electives that promote interest in education and creativity, and even adjusting scheduling within the classroom to benefit the students’ sociability traits. Homework could reflect on this schedule, ensuring a close comparability with college scheduling and studying, thus promising students a better success rate in their future. Individuality and conformity in scheduling go hand in hand in students’ success, and should therefore work together to ensure their propitious

Schools can develop programs or activities that include drawing, music, dance, martial arts, theater, sculpture and even crafts. In conclusion, school uniforms benefit students in a number of ways. School uniforms are cost-efficient, promote equality among students and reduce the distractions that don’t relate to school work. Even Bill Clinton, former President of the United States of America said that uniforms are a “better” choice for students. I strongly believe that school uniforms should not be banned from schools and I encourage other schools who don’t require school uniforms to try as uniforms create a better learning environment for the future leaders of the

This includes headaches, stress, and getting very little sleep. The problem is they want students to take a variety of standardized tests to determine if they pass. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) was created to allow no students to get left behind. This act required students to be tested in math and English every year starting in third grade. The new Common Core curriculum has set standards to help prepare students for college and the real world.
Why Common Core Standards Should Be More Common Why would students not want to be on a level playing field in their education? Why would they not want to be able to move seamlessly between states? These opportunities are given to students by Common Core. Although many opponents may say that these standards are a barrier of creativity, the Common Core Standards being accepted in all fifty states would help America, because it would have teachers across state borders instructing similar lesson plans, it would decrease the achievement gap, and it would better prepare students for college and the workforce by teaching them the needed materials for their futures. The Common Core being accepted in all fifty states would be helpful, because all schools would be teaching similar lesson plans.
I believe the program will do nothing but help me grow and strive to be a better student and continue being involved. This program membership will open new doors for me and make my high school and college experiences so much smoother.

The program would keep me focused on
The importance of a college degree College, the word that you here most about when you go to interview for jobs. In the article Even Cashier Pays Off by David Leonhardt, he states that going to college is a good investment in life. I agree with David Leonhardt’s claim that having a college degree can benefit you through a career. Having a degree pay more than a high school diploma. Families expect their children to have a future with a good paying job and a degree that can last for a life time.
Higher percentage of passing scores on state exams will show as well as other important advantages.
