Co-ed schools versus single-sex schools: which will provide a better learning experience for students? The debate over whether or not the genders should be separated in the classroom still stands today. In a society where both men and women have to work together harmoniously, a co-ed education initially seems to be the more viable option since it prepares students for real-world experiences. Although every student has different learning styles, a student would, however, ultimately benefit from the tailored curriculum and comfort of a single-sex educational environment. Students will have a more relaxed learning experience without distractions from the opposite gender.
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
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Muhammad was a leader who fought for the purpose of religion (Sechzer, 2004). Even before Islam was emerged, the Greeks and Romans affected the whole area from Libya, Egypt, and India. Muhammad formed the basis of Islam, which is still present today (Sechzer, 2004). Muhammad and his followers traveled the Middle East, spreading the new religion and the new way of life to gain more people following them. These men and women still continue to follow the Law of Islam based off the Quran.
According to “Raising Smart Kids” by Dweck, “The helpless ones believe that intelligence is a fixed trait: you only have a certain amount, and that’s that. I call this a ‘fixed mindset’. Mistakes crack their self-confidence because they attribute errors to a lack of ability, which they feel powerless to change. They avoid challenges because challenges make mistakes more likely and looking less smart so.” (23).
“Dr. Vaughan pointed out that even school assemblies are quieter because students act more respectfully.” (Viola Vaughan). If you can’t wear certain things or certain brands of clothing then you don’t feel left out or like you 're not as important as someone else because you don’t have the same hat or same shoes as everyone else. When you 're not thinking about being and having the same things as everyone else then you might become more respectful. Having a dress code is good for schools because it helps students act more respectfully, to reduce crime rate, and to resist peer pressure.
An honor code run by students are very effective, students are less likely to cheat at schools with student enforced honor codes, because of the culture they create. The success of an honor code, depends on expectations that students have of their peers’ behavior (Source C). Students will cheat less if they will be deemed socially unacceptable or lacking integrity. Honor Codes will prevent cheating and every school and university should have one.
Study Hall, not a highway were studying is taking place. Adding study hall as an elective at Von would bring more benefits to both students and teachers than loss because there’s a likelihood that grades will go up along with standardized test scores. In the same way, the class is versatile, so students have the option on what they want to do. Not only that, but it creates a safety net for students to complete work. Overall, the advantages of implanting a study hall outweigh the disadvantages of it.
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’
It has the possibility to boost gpas. Removing students preforming these acts will also improve student’s mindset, who do not perform these acts. Lessening tension felt in school by reducing stressed students from dangerous people or the possibility of being peer pressured into drugs. This will over all improve the function of the school, and its popularity among students who only want to go to school for an education.
Often, students who suffer from bullying are self-conscious, and it is very difficult to express their ideas for fear of being rejected and being abused. The use of uniform creates equality between students and these in turn create security strengthening freedom of expression. When my children changed school and went to study in one uniform requiring our students, I felt like I 'd won the lottery. You know what that means saving time and discussions in the morning to choose clothes for children? In my opinion, the uniform not only helps us save time and also represents a cost savings.
This system may either be good or bad depending on the nature of society. If the society is good the system will aim to promote good moral values; if the society is bad the system will promote unethical practices. To many educators and parents, it’s common sense: children who have strong social and emotional skills perform better in school, have more positive relationships with peers and adults, and have more positive emotional adjustment and mental health. Because children spend a significant portion of their time in schools, schools are a major context for social and emotional development, growing along with and connected to academics. Conclusion Eliminating or minimizing bullying at Lakewood Elementary and placing the focus point on a more conclusive objective such as the point system will enrich these children with a sense of responsibility and amour-propae when it comes to behavior in school.
