For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
Firstly, school uniforms reduce the distraction in the classroom. According to “UNIFORMS: are they a good fit?” it states, “Many of these students say dress down days are somewhat distracting”(Marsha 36). This evidence proves that at a school where school uniforms are usually worn, they get to have a free day where they can wear whatever they want, but even then, one, just one day, students claim for it to be a little distracting.
The first reason that Blue Valley should adapt a school uniform policy is that it prevents distraction and evens out the social status between students. For example, a bulletin published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals stated that, “When all students are wearing the same outfit they are less concerned about their clothes and more concentrated on their school work.” This shows that when uniforms are implemented there is less distraction on their clothes so they are more focused on their school work. It also puts kids in a more equal social
It will “ensure moral action”, allows the students to know it’s wrong. It will gain respect in Rockville HIgh School because they won’t be worried about someone getting advantages of you. Someone “voted in favor” because she could feel “ comfortable taking an exam without worrying about someone looking at my paper where I could feel trusted visiting a dorm as a day student” Vangelli did this only because she wanted
The Newark Advocate says that the school thinks this will have a great benefit for the school district. Youngstown schools also changed their start times. The school administration in Youngstown say that changing the school time gives students a better chance to get more sleep at night and be ready to start the school day in the morning. There is just a couple of schools that have changed there are others too. Changing the school time wouldn’t only make the kids happy but it would benefit their health.
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
To end the high rates of unemployment and absence in school in impoverished communities. Some steps we can take are implementing policies that will keep students in school. For instance, community service will be force upon an individual if they miss a certain amount of days of school at a recreation center. Another step is by paying the parents to spend more time in with their children, keeping the children out of trouble and rebelling. In doing so, people will not rebel and have an easier time conforming to the society
Maddie Berlemann Mrs. Mercer Honors Freshman lit. March 2, 2017 Tuition Free College Even though opponents say that free college would not be an option because faculty would push for more pay, tuition free college is good for reasons such as making cities more successful, students would not be crushed by debt, students would value higher education and it would benefit the poor. According to Lawrence S. Wittner, “Free public higher education provides educational opportunities for all.”
If every school provides students unconstrained management which means allow students to do the things in their ways and develop their different creative thoughts rather than prevent, then more and more students will like to go to school.(ELAC) Not only that, students’ interests will get improve from their schools also, and their creative abilities will help them to reach their goals more easily. (CS) From these points on, even social,political and economic structures are look like the root causes for educational
Children Getting Paid Children are the future of our society, they are what we trust in leading us from now on. So why are we not teaching them real world values during schools? Kids should be paid for good grades and attendance with money. This would help poor kids with their home lives , this would motivate kids and schools as a whole to do better, it would even give kids real world experiences with money. Children should be paid for going to school and getting good grades.
School is for learning and earning an education, and electives are just different styles of learning designed for different types of minds. In conclusion, the students of central high school receive a great benefit from these elective classes. Electives are needed for students to jumpstart their careers and express their talents in a mature, professional way. Doing away with electives would bring more harm than just fixing
Noted author, Stephen Covey offers uses the story of a bamboo plant to offer advice. The story taught me to be more patient with several stuff and try not to rush on the work the teacher assigns. For example, if the teacher is not in class on time, wait a few more minutes and do not go so far ahead on your schoolwork unless the teacher says that it is ok to do so. Patience is important in college because you do not know what might happen if you are not patient at all. Being impatient might ruin your chance to graduate college if you just think that it would be easy, well, that is not true at all.
In his final chapter, Gladwell goes into detail about how kids with wealthier families do better in school than those of poorer families. Gladwell brings up an academy in New York called KIPP Academies, AKA hell. The KIPP Academy is a school that low income families are able to enroll their children in. The schools have a high standard of academic achievement and push their students so they graduate ready to go to college and succeed. Research showed that wealthier kids were not only doing better in school, but they were improving on their own during the summers because of the access to outside sources of learning that the wealthier family had granted them.
No Makin It”. In Mcleod’s book, the view of schools as a sorting machine shows us how schools are not a place for equality. We put students into different tracts such as AP and IB, creating a hierarchy or stratifying system (Mcleod). Even though my parents aren’t very wealthy, a private school has put me higher in the stratifying system and pushed me to try hard and get good grades so I could get into a good college. This is another aspect of my life that has been socially constructed as normal.
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.
