Many schools in other countries spend less time in school and do not receive homework. Those schools are the ones with the highest test scores. The US is not even in the top twelve for best scores. With all the extra time students spend on school related items, such as homework, it is not helping. An article written by Sean Coughlan states that, “Pupils in England already get an average of 150 hours extra teaching per year than their Finnish counterparts.” Students in Finland do not receive homework, but their test scores are ranked sixth in the world.
. Recently school’s homework policies has been a popular debate.In the United Sates schools have been giving students more and more homework, whilst countries such as Finland have opted for banning homework from their educational system. Some have complained and said that homework takes away from family time and causes stress. Since homework has minimal effects on children's grades, and can cause stress, homework should be banned in schools around the world. Homework doesn't always improve academic scores.
Once a college is chosen there are details that are very difficult to get a feeling for until you’re actually participating in the school. One of the disadvantages are the lack of scheduling options when choosing a class. Being in the small education department the class sizes are even smaller than normal. As a freshman the class sizes for education class are the typical size, but by the time junior and senior year arrive there are typically only a few students left. The lack of students in the classroom leads to only a select few classes.
Less than 2% of high school graduates in the US will receive a STEM degree from a four-year college or university. The United States particularly lacks diversity in STEM fields, with only about 5% of STEM degrees earned by people of color and 17-27% by women. “Female representation in STEM careers is influenced by many factors: self-image, gender group identity, perceptions of the career field professionals, perceived financial barriers, the influence of mentors, and the extent of interest in the field.” (Moakler et. Al., 130) The influence of mentors is the most important. A mentor can be a single person, or a group or organization.
Students don’t take advantage of the opportunities they are provided in high school, like dual-enrollment, that could save them time and money in college. Every year students are given the opportunity to do dual enrollment which would save them hundreds to thousands in college, but most miss their chance and are required to take remedial classes in college. According to statistics, “Complete College America reports that almost 50% of the students entering 2-year colleges are required to take remedial classes. ( Rath Par.15)”. To further explain, due to students not taking advantages in high school are required to take remedial classes they most-likely took in high school and pay around triple the amount.
I wasn’t the smartest cookie in the jar but when I went to school I felt like the students and teachers made me realize even more that I was not so smart. Fearing not finishing my degree comes from my past and the way I was talked at by people, telling me that I wasn’t going to amount to much. When people bash me saying things such as I might not even make to high school graduation just because I was not as smart as others in
Furthermore, because of more time to be added to the students’ school day, they’ll become less efficient and won’t learn more things they are thought to be able to learn from the extra time they were given. Even with the hour and a half added into the schedule, they won’t learn anything more because they are all pooped out from earlier classes. A small group of kids may learn more, but the big remainder would not. Wrapping up, we have after school programs for a reason. We don’t need the school day to increase just for students to learn more and get help.
Parents educate and increase letter acknowledgment, number abilities, perusing aptitudes to their young kids at home. Specially parents who did well in school themselves by and large have the devices to help their youngsters and model practices that prompt accomplishment in school. Then again, numerous low-financial status folks experience the ill effects of low education levels and will probably be not able to furnish their kids with advancing encounters that can prompt achievement in school(Alexander, Entwisle, Olson, 2007). As understudies get more established, the accomplishment crevice extends. Fairchild (2002) reports that at the point when low-wage understudies enter fifth grade they are up to two years behind their associates of higher financial status in perusing appreciation and perusing acknowledgment aptitudes.Arithmetic calculation was significantly more powerless to learning misfortune over the mid-year than perusing.
I struggled a lot in my math classes, I think because when I first moved to Lake hamilton I was behind on my multiplication skills, because at my other school we hadn 't learned them yet. But for the rest of my school years at Lake Hamilton it has been awesome. I have been making good grades since the 9th grade, I started trying really hard and I think school got more easier because we got more freedom. I think that the main difference between Lake Hamilton, and my last school is that Oaklawn is more of a performing arts school, while Lake Hamilton is more focused on sports. During my school years at
Abstract Introduction According to the national educational standards, usually students have to memorise facts and statistics rather than making an analysis and evaluation of the ideas mentioned in the classroom. Thus, it is not difficult to realize that most of the knowledge that is gained at school ages is not useful in the future. The vast majority of the theorems and formulas become forgotten after several years, and their applications in the real life are unknown both for adults and students. We have better cars, cellphones, houses and movies, etc. Whenever you look things are getting better, but not in education.
