Why we should or shouldn't have recess. What would the world be like without recess? The classroom is a dry, boring, wasteland, that no one, and I mean no one likes. Recess is a fun time to let loose and take a break from your teacher’s desert, and when you are free it’s time to have fun. It’s finally a time where you DON’T have to learn.
While homework gives benefits to students, unnecessary homework should not be assigned due to the fact that there are enough school hours, it consumes time, and the development of poor health is encouraged. “Homework has been a part of students’ lives for so long that the idea of not doing it can seem incredible, surreal, or even impossible. But if [people] stop to think about it, the truth is that homework is not necessary” (Mathprepa). Seeing that there are enough school hours in one day, students are puzzled on why homework is called for. In this case,
Why Suspending Misbehaving Students Is a Bad Idea Teachers may be surprised to find out that suspending kids from school isn’t working anymore and we need a better solution for punishing the students. This is because many students would rather be home than having to come to school. Many schools in the past have used various different punishments for disobedient students but the main one has been suspending them from school and activities. This way of dealing with the students has worked for many years of teaching because the students back then knew that they were lucky to even be going to school. In this new generation, kids don’t care about school as much and would rather be home anyway.
Although school suspensions can be useful whenever a student misbehaves, the punishment can sometimes not even affect the student behavior against other students, limit students from learning new material and passing their grade, and could possibly affect their career life. The reasons that suspension can affect these things is because whenever a student goes home
For example, my cousin does not have block schedule at his school and he said that he never gets the one on one connections with his teacher and sometimes needs more time with the teacher. He also said that the teacher doesn't always have time to finish the whole subject, which puts them behind in class. This example shows that because of not having block schedule it give them limited time in class not being able to complete a full topic. This causes them to fall behind and their grades could eventually drop. This proposal is beneficial to both students and teachers.
But does that small increase in grades worth making students suffer everyday after school? Everyone who supports giving homework likes to see these helpless students in agony. Schools must prohibit homework because it has little to no benefits on students, it has negative health effects, and it prevents students from doing extra curricular activities. Homework has little to no benefits on students. In the article, ¨Down with Homework!¨ the author believes that homework does not have any benefits on children that many people think it does.
Homework may be the greatest extinguisher of curiosity ever invented” (Rathke). Destroying a child’s health, desire to learn, and school experience is not the job of educators, and that is exactly the impact of the homework they are assigning. Research shows that elementary schools are rightfully banning homework. In schools without homework bans, teachers are unintentionally assigning too much work. But after dropping homework, schools see students’ health, family dynamics, and attitudes towards school improved majorly.
If a student is truly in need of help, and they’re actually failing, then they should receive help from a teacher, a tutor, an older sibling, or even a peer. It isn’t too much to ask to pass; you don’t even need a C; just a minimum of D-. That’s it, so is the ‘No Pass, No Play’ rule really too much of a
Out of all grades in secondary school, I believe that Grade 9 is the least important of them all. During their high school years, teenagers are studying so that they are able to pursue the future career of their choice. Teenagers including myself attempt to aim for the highest marks possible so that universities will accept our applications. Further supporting my point, universities do not look at the marks of the first two years of high school, Grade 9 especially, which goes to say how irrelevant grade nine actually is. If a student’s progression is very poor in grade nine, they can still very easily get into a good university as long as they do well in grade eleven and twelve, so the need to succeed is not there in Grade 9.
The survey of schools showed that, as there is no principal in public schools ( ), there is not enough strictness on teachers for coming late or on unpunctuality. Farida and Madiha(2004) found that extra-curricular/co-curricular activities in public schools is far less than private schools so there is less burden on teachers, whereas in private schools almost every month or in every 2 months either there is a celebration of some day or event in school( ). Imran (2008) found in her comparative analysis that majority of public school teachers behave well. They avoid quarrelling, getting flair up quickly, accusing others, encountering outrage as compared to private school teachers. Students of private schools are sharper than those of public schools Iqbal (2012) found in his studies that public schools offer free education and the focus is mainly on this thing by the government instead of the quality of education.
