Students all over the country would love to get paid, but some studies have shown that students will do better at school if they get paid for getting good grades. Bad effects is that one year the school pays you for good grades, then the next year you don't get paid. Reasons kids (students) don’t get paid is because kids might cheat on test or commit crimes to get good grades. The students would not learn for fun because there desire to learn is gone because they only want to learn is for the money. One other thing is that students should be satisfied with their good grades but now all the students care about is the money.
Struggling students should be required to take summer school because it gives them a chance to re-learn what they did not understand, it helps their grades improve, and it gives them a chance to learn more about themselves. Going to summer school may help the student re-learn what they could not understand in class. Students may not always understand the subject that they are learning because they are not putting in the effort or the teachers are not explaining it well. “This teacher should not be paid. We had to teach ourselves in this course” wrote Maryellen Weimer (Weimer).
They do not know how they can get good grades because they did nothing for the grade except being paid. It is a vicious circle for students. (transition) (intro) If students worked hard, their grades will be good. Yet if they are being paid for a grade, it is wasting parents money (Pay). If the paying is just for the makeshift, it is wasting money.
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades. Their guardians or whoever they live with needs to help them be an educated person so that they could have a bright future.
It could help the kids who struggle in school to get more help with what they don’t understand. Some families don’t go on vacations so for those kids who don’t go on vacations they wouldn’t complain that they are bored and have nothing to do because they would be at school. Most students would not want school to be year round and I agree with that. School year round is way too much for us kids. I think we should be able to have time off when it is warm to do fun things.
Socrates would even disagree with what some parents are doing nowadays. Socrates, in Plato’s Republic, believed that formal education should not start until a child is eighteen. He believed that the early years in a person’s life should be more devoted to having fun with some simple schooling. Right now, in America, children start formal schooling at the age of four or five. This has proved to be successful in most cases, but in some instances, young students burnout by the third
I believe having to figure out a new system and how a new school works is an academic challenge. Transitioning to a new school means you must make new friends. I think that if you don 't have a good social life at school, you can 't really do well in school grade wise. I think that if you don 't have a good social life at school than that leads to not liking school and then you won 't do very well on your grades. Even with the cons, I 've loved moving to different places and I think without that aspect of my life I would be the person that I have become especially academic wise.
Students shouldn't have to pay for college, should they? No they shouldn't. Many smart kids who are more likely to succeed have little money and cannot afford college. More kids would go to college, also students would have more freedom to choose what they really wanted to do. College should be free for everyone for the kids with less money, it would help some actually go and be successful in life and they would have more freedom to choose what they want to do.
According to Amanda Ripley, author of “Should Schools Get Rid of Sports”. Sports make kids look forward to going to school because you get to play and bond with your team mates after school. Also you get to let loose and play whatever you love to play. Another way sports make kids look forward to school is if they have a game or practice. And if sports make kids look forward for school kids will want to go so they will get better grades through sports.
Expectations for good grades may create stress on the student as they (or their parents) can no longer bully the professor into assigning a higher grade.” This opposing thesis is not valid because these kids which “struggle” with academic success, which is a struggle with some of heir lives, focus on the fact that they are so pressured to do well in school without their parents and have to be a exceeding well off person based off their success.. in which they should be grateful on of their greater problems. This opposing argument is flawed because it shows how rich kids (in The Outsiders, Socs) struggle with not being the best they can be academically, when Greasers do not even the the chance to stress over this topic but instead have to work to support themselves. Greasers struggle more than the Socs because they have to give up so many
In school students do not care about writing as much as they used to. If they would work harder in school, their grades would be higher and more colleges would want them. In Esther Cepeda 's research, she managed to prove that students test scores are going down. That is because they do not work as hard as they used to. Some students inadvertently slack off on their work.
