Chapter 16 of Readings for Sociology, titled "Deviance and Liminality" by Beth Montemurro describes liminality as "being 'neither here nor there'" in reference to the in between phase of transitioning from one status to the next. An example of liminality is seen at the stage at the end of senior year of high school, but before graduation. Many students participate in senior pranks in the final weeks, or days, of their high school careers. Students often adopt the mindset of thinking that their actions will not matter in a couple months because they will soon be graduated. Students view this time period as an opportunity to break from the conformity of following the rules and participate in an activity that will leave a mark on the school to
Senior year of high school is a year of many changes from students. They begin by having to make adult decisions midway through their big year. Do they want to continue to go to school, if so what school do they want to go to? More importantly what major do they want to choose? This major will contradict what jobs they will be able to get and if that job is unavailable then what will be the students next option.
The competitive process of college applications beats down on students in high school more and more as time passes. High school has lost its concept of pure education and has evolved into a place where students need to spread themselves thin in order to make the cut for the colleges they dream to get into. This reality will no go away in the future, but become worse. Colleges will continue to become more selective and students will need to push themselves further to stand out against their peers. High school in the future will completely loose its original intention of spreading knowledge and convert into a place where kids go only to compete against one another in every aspect.
In a way, it’s like it is expected from everyone to go to college. It seems like it is thought badly of if you don’t go, which could be from a number of reasons. For example, during my four years in high school, I’ve noticed that I’m not the best student, hence why I am typing this exam. But when I work
After one year I was ready to take the test. It was not like what I imagined, the test was harder than I thought, and I realize that my knowledge was not ready for the college. I was so disappointed, and I want to give up. After the test, I know that I have to try harder if I want to go to college.
In October of my freshman year, myself, a senior named Cyera, and one of our school 's City Year members, Fevean Keflom, came together to form a student-led club we called The College and Career Committee (CCC). We came up with the idea of CCC because we noticed that our school lacked the resources it needed to prepare students for high school and college, clubs were almost non-existent at school, the graduation rate as well as students remaining in college after their 1st year was at an all-time low, and to simply motivate kids to get involved in high school activities and through community service
My second rewarding school experience was in high school senior year. I chose my senior experience because I had to fix what I had done my earlier years of high school. I had to retake some classes and sacrifice my time and my teacher 's were willing to do the same to get me to pass. My teacher 's noticed my main struggles were in math and English and we made a plan of success to help me get on the path to graduate. This year is important because of two reasons reason one was it was my senior year and the second reason was that my school was closing down and there wasn 't going to be any summer courses to take to make up the classes.
It was 2122 at a grey high school, which's name escapes me, when the incident happened during the Deprime Test. I was a young college student at the time, attending to earn experience. As a young adult, I understood well that the test played an important part in helping the depressed. Locating depression early helped in a time where entire graduation classes diminished by half.
Why Nontraditional Students Should Be Exempted From Regular School Policies I consider myself to be a nontraditional student with extenuating circumstances. What does that mean? For me, it means I find it extremely difficult to comply with some of the standard school policies. I am a student with a child of my own in my senior year of high school.
Each semester new students come into Blue Ridge Community College to expand their horizons. They take classes, so they will be able to graduate with an Associate’s Degree.

Before entering college classes, students take a placement test to determine if they are ready for college classes. Community colleges offer developmental classes in English and Math for students that did not do well on these subjects on the placement test.
In Should The Obama Generation Drop Out Charles Murray talks about the flaws found in the Obama education plan . He brings to the attention of the public the fact that many student in America graduate lacking the skills necessary for the proper college education. Murray goes on to argue that in today 's society students who graduate from High-school go on to technical college to pursue a vocational education in their field of study; whereas, older generations have pursued an all around education, enrolling in classes that were irrelevant to the career they were pursuing. Murray claims that if you test the vast majority of Americans (including himself) in the more rigorous subjects, they would most likely fail. Murray mentions that he does
For example, it takes up too much time in class. Standardized testing is taking up 2.3 percent of classroom time. This 2.3 percent is not counting all of the regular testing students do throughout the year. Although students are prepared for college, you might say, standardized takes time away from current learning. As you can see, standardized testing takes up too much class time.
Since earning my diploma at West Genesee High School, I continued my education journey to Onondaga Community College. Here I had some ups and downs like any other student their first semester at a new school. Trying to adjust from high school classes to college class. During my first semester I struggled with Calculus, I tried college hour with my professor, and the tutoring center that is offered on campus. I ending up not doing very well in the class, and took it the next semester.
The associates degree at a two year community college is becoming the newest way to combat rising college costs. Students are no longer seeing enrollment as a freshman in a four year college as the only path to a degree. The stigma attached to attending community college has declined while at the same time the attitude towards the cost of attending a four year school has been one of growing disdain. My dad has attended the Bethel Park High School graduation for the last twenty-five years and he said he has noticed an obvious increase in the number of students listing Community College of Allegheny County for their post high school plans in the graduation program. The cost per year at a community college makes it an attractive option to limit the aggregate cost of a four year degree.
