Schools don 't want to charge for sports, but many have to. "Where else are you going to turn?" asked Gary Frisch, a school official”. This saying that even though having books and courses should be free and parents should not have to pay for that but because parents are not paying for their children to play sports the school is making them pay for books and courses instead. In the text it said “Fees are good for school sports. They weed out players who aren 't serious about a sport.
Most clothes that are long sleeves and are jeans cost more money than shorts and tank tops. If the school provided clothes that were decent for the ones that couldn't afford clothes then a dress code might be appropriate, but until then we shouldn't have a dress code. The people that really dislike having a dress code should actually point it out and tell someone and try to have it changed if so many people dislike it. I honestly think the dress code should change because of the money cost. We also need to reinforce other school issues, but the mst thing is school dress code.
The second article by Laura Clark, is more embracive towards the uniform idea, as she claims throughout the text that uniforms lessen bullying, increase the individual student’s behaviour and concentration and simply make the daily triviality of picking clothes disappear. The last article written by Suzanne Moore, shares the negative sides of wearing uniforms in school. Moore informs us how the idea restricts children and teenagers from doing certain activities and the uniform made her feel “dispirited by the ridiculousness of it” (p. 1, l. 12-13). There are plenty of reasons to why the uniform should be abolished; uniforms are expensive, many good schools don’t have uniforms and children bully each other because of their accessories instead of their clothes.
Finally, the school board is worried that this funding and jobs from this program will take away from other school district. This is a non-starter; it was stated that the funding would be private funding. So therefore, the school district can’t rob Peter to pay Paul, they should see this funding as a gift
“Perhaps the most important concern about school vouchers is the effect they have on public schools. Many people acknowledge that vouchers help the students who use them, but are worried that they will make public schools worse by draining money or by ‘creaming’ the best students” (Forster 10). When parents are able to bring their child to any school they please, they bring the funding with them. Schools that lose students also lose their funding, and what is left over for the students who stay is lower quality and lesser
If that particular student down miss school because disipline they could be behind in school work and not have direct contact with the teacher to ask the questions. Uniforms help that problem and get the child the learning they need. Also, uniforms eliminate the great threat of outsiders. Grace Chen explained that "Outsiders wh odo not belong on campus are easily identified and thus do not pose a great threat to the
Basing school funding on property tax leads to unequal opportunities and environments for students, even though the government may claim it is not up to them, there needs to be a drastic change. Currently, taxes collected from the surrounding communities fund public school districts. Public schools get financed mainly by the property tax of the surrounding houses. “Resources available to school districts relied heavily on local property wealth, and property wealth per pupil varied greatly, as it continues today”
In conclusion, school uniforms are a great thing to have in schools. Even though there is that argument on whether school uniforms will violate the right of self-expression to students it will continue either way. At the end of the day students should see that there are more positive effects with uniforms rather than negative ones. It should be taking in consideration that the clothes a student wears will not determine the ability of learning, but why not pick school uniforms that can help stop current school
Throughout Valerie’s writing she uses multiple rhetorical devices to make her argument stronger to persuade the reader. Her first premise is that “Privatized school choice will inevitably reduce funding for your local neighborhood public schools.” She stated that taxpayers are paying for our children’s education and that their money goes with the student whether it be private schools, public schools or charter schools. It is argued by many people that the money is “backpacked” and that the money follows the student to where they go, but it doesn’t affect the public schools. She says in the article that it isn’t true.
All humans have the right to freedom of speech. Is a public school dress code requirement violating that freedom of speech if it protects student human rights? Research has shown that while many people believe school uniforms to have some negative effects on teachers, students, and their parents, uniforms have more benefit than just looking nice at school. Being required to wear school uniforms prevents violence, promotes higher motivation for academic learning, and encourages more respect for everyone in the school environment. Wearing uniforms has an impact on the student’s school years, so they should be required to be worn every day of school.
In Carl Singleton’s article, “What Our Education System Needs is More F’s,” he argues that students aren’t receiving the failing grades they deserve. School systems are to blame for the lack of quality in America’s education. No other recommendation for improvement will succeed. The only way to fix the American education system is to fail more students. According to Singleton, the real root of the issue is with the parents.
Amanda Ripley stated that “America Lags behind other countries” around the globe with academics, but if we put more academics and canceled sports we would be able to catch up to the other countries in the learning program. Not only is Fremont high affecting their own learning, but also the middle school had to move in with the senior high school, and the “elementary school hadn’t had a music teacher in years”
The United States’ school system is based on compulsory education laws which required children from 6 to 16 years of age to assist public or private school, for a certain number of years (“Compulsory Education”, 2015). In the past, these laws were put in effect to increase literacy rates and to avoid child labor practice. Unfortunately, there are many people against mandatory public education in America. This is the case of a former New York City teacher, John Taylor Gatto, who in his article “Against School”, he expresses why he believes that the school system is ineffective in helping students to develop their full potential.
The ACLU would most likely file a lawsuit against any version of this policy if passed because they will say that it violates the separation of church and state because some of the schools that will take students using vouchers provided by the government. A potential harm of this policy is that is it could make it more difficult for children in heavily isolated areas to receive these higher levels of education because it will be difficult for them to have access to a private school. Students in these portions of the state are more likely to be the ones who need public schools than students that live in urban areas. While they will still receive a better education than before, it might not reach the level of the education being received by those in private
Testing would shine a spotlight on low-performing schools, and choice would create opportunities for poor kids to leave for better schools.” (Ravitch, 495). In some ways, they wanted to end the social difference in education, they wanted to give opportunity to students that does not have it. However, they are different in ways that Ravitch stated to believe that this dream was not going to be possible because the government was more worried about the test scores than the students gaining real knowledge, and Greene was still believing that choice, accountability, etc. were really helping students’
