With the heavy workload, many students are not getting adequate sleep, causing them to miss out on important topics taught the next day in class. Also, the high amount of homework prevents children from spending meaningful time with family and friends. Additionally, after students have been sitting in their desks for seven hours, an hour or two of unstructured time to relax and play outside or to do some chores around the house would be beneficial in increasing the work ethic and attention span of the students. Finally, many students are involved in sports, music, leadership groups, and churches. With all of the homework these days, it is becoming more and more of a struggle to be a “well rounded” student.
With all the time students spend on homework, they feel obligated to drop other activities in order to have enough time to complete their assignments. Most students don’t know what they want to do when they get out of high school. It is through extracurricular activities that students find their interests and learn to express themselves. The National Center of Education found that students who participated in extracurricular activities have a higher school attendance, GPA, test scores, and expected educational goals. However, students are dropping out of theses out of school activities because of the lack of time.
At St. Anne School, there are many rules that several students disagree with. For example, nail polish, shoes, phones, and eating restrictions. These are all rules that should be adjusted. Some rules are too strict and complicated to remember. Many students would be satisfied if these changes were made and wouldn’t abuse these new rules.
Have you ever had to do a chore for longer than you have wanted to? For example, taking out the trash until you 're 17 years old, or older. Well making a student stay committed to staying in school until age 18 can feel that way. Students should not have to stay in school until age 18 because there are different methods of lowering dropout rates, when you require a student to stay in school it can cause issues for teachers and other students, and some students need to dropout to help with family. Just as there are many other ways of making a kid do chores, or getting the trash taken out, there are many other ways to lower the dropout rates.
Should we get rid of homework? Homework is an ongoing argument between parents and teachers whether it should take it out of the system, or if they should keep it in the system. There has been an enormous amount of research and studies done on if homework helps with academic learning, or if it is just a way to put more stress onto students and teachers. Whether it is good practice at home from what they have learned at school, or a way for parents to see how we are doing at school. Whether it helps us or not it still puts a huge amount of stress on us as the school year goes on and we get more homework.
Throughout my years as a junior high student I have witnessed many incidents where students have become overwhelmed with the amount of homework we receive within a weeks time. Of those students, many of them became so overwhelmed with the amount of work and decided to put off doing it. These students would then suffer the consequences of detention and receiving low grades, causing them to fail their classes. However, some people may disagree that the amount of homework students receive is perfectly fine and that it teaches kids a life lesson about dealing with a lot of things all at once. Contradicting that last statement, kids deserve to spend their childhood years being kids and shouldn’t have to be burdened down with constant homework after
After a eight hour long day of working at school, all of the kids get released to go back to their houses. What most kids do is they get home and they relax and do other activities that they want to do. But later that day most people have extensive amounts of homework that they have to do. On Wednesdays kids may have religion and other things like sports to do and when people have a lot of homework like Brayden and Prescott have to deal with homework from Religion and School it can be stressful. Now some people do it right when they get home but most kids like Prescott can 't do it right away because they have to relax because they “are tired” from the big day of school.

This is why the book sector in industrialized countries receives both direct and indirect subsidies. There is always a need for a mechanism to review and control the quality of learning materials used in classrooms with regard to relevance, content, educational approach and efficacy, as well as to ensure that the provision of learning materials reflects government policies. The provision of books for schools and non-formal education programmes demands
They are as follows; teamwork, planning, community involvement and parental involvement. For a school to be completely inclusive these four aspects have to be evident and work together in harmony. It is my belief that parental involvement is of vital importance within a school, as it empowers the parents themselves to undertake their own role as a primary educator. This would mean that dialogue between students, teachers and parents would be easily accessible. Teamwork is an aspect in life that everyone will experience at some stage.
A few say, that at intermediate school, teachers and administrators require students to buy extra products for the new year. Some of these supplies may get quite pricy and a lot of families may not afford all of these items. This lack of money unfortunately results in some students to get teased and bullied. They often get called names because of how they might have to use an old backpack from their brother or sister, or having to use used and worn down school materials. In elementary school though, parents and their children may not have to buy extra materials for the new year as much of what they need, they already possess at home.
I feel that the consequence policy had appropriate consequences for different violations, I thought that having different consequences for different levels of offenses was a good idea for the elementary school. Consequences are extremely important for students to learn how to behave and what is and is not appropriate for them to do in school. The curriculum enforcement policy ties directly into my group (the curriculum committee). The curriculum enforcement policy had different parts that were incorporated into it that all passed, most of the policy focused directly on having the teachers collaborate with one another. As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key.
Assistive Technology plays an important role is the life of a student with a visual impairment. The student is able to access information that they may not have been able to. They will be able to participate within the school setting, perform everyday tasks with more ease and create a world of more independence for themselves. All areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) are important for Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVI) to focus on, however, assistive technology is the most critical. Assistive Technology knowledge is used in every area of the ECC.
