“Cooper & Valentine (2001) pointed out that HW is the number one cause of stress and friction between the school and the home.” (Kukliansky et al. 232). These assignments “…leave children frantically attempting to balance overcrowded schedules that include schoolwork, homework, extracurricular activities, private enrichment lessons, sports, work, family, personal obligations, and much more” (Simplicio 139). Homework creates tension between parents and children, as evidenced in surveys that state, “almost half of parents reported having a serious argument with their children over homework, and a third of the parents reported that homework was a source of stress and struggle” (qtd. in Lancia-Gifford et al.
The young people of America do not have time to research and take the time out of their day to go and vote because of college and many other responsibilities students do not have the time to go out of their way to go vote a lot of people take classes and the time to vote is not there.

Remedial classes use up the students’ financial aid eligibility, but are not included in graduation credits; therefore, taking the classes push the students further away from their degrees. According to Tugend (2016), “Remedial classes, which students often pay for but usually aren’t included in graduation credits, are the single most deadly issue for students of color” (para. 15). After students take the remedial classes, they may have little to no money left to take classes that directly help achieve degrees. Even if a student passes the remedial class, he or she is not any closer to his or her degree than before, which often discourages many students.
They often feel rushed in teaching all the required information in one school year because of the time spent reviewing forgotten information (Priddy). Teachers are also pressured to cover certain lessons and topic for each grade. With time spent reviewing lost information they feel rushed to catch up and meet the requirements. Students are stressed during the school year because they have too few breaks. Stress from school can lead students to a lack of motivation.
If class work was to callous I’d complain to my case manager. I’d tell her that I didn’t have enough time or that I have lots other work to do, so she would get me out of any work that I dint want to do. My case manger got me lots of extensions on projects, homework, and test. But I didn’t take advantage of any of it. My grades were dropping faster than ever, and so was my self-esteem.
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
Kids all over America aren't getting enough sleep and not being able to give there full potential. There has been study's showing that this is affecting the students a lot. This is making kids tired in school so they don't focus as much. Because of the lack of sleep, kids grades are also decreasing.

There are some students who either are incoming high school students or are returning which can be a big fear for them the most because they don’t know what to expect from the campus vibe or even what their teacher can be like. Cox explains on how some students even have a fear of applying for college because of the paperwork they have to fill out and how much requirements they ask for. Also they
This could affect their grade in multiple ways because if they are non concentrated on their project they will not get it completed by the due date. If they do not get it completed by the due date it can result in a lower grade than if it was turned in on the due date. Also another reason too much screen time is affecting their grades is when they are in the classrooms at school. Since most teens are constantly texting or checking social media while in class it can bring their grade down if they are not paying attention to the facilitator. Missing concluding
Most of my friends who are currently in college have between 5000$-20.000$ in federal and private loans. In many cases, besides for the loans, students have to work and study at the same time, which results in a stressful life for the student. In fact, many students are not able to finish their education because, since they can’t afford it, they have to work over their studies. Out of all the possible reasons to drop out of college, “the No. 1 reason many young adults drop out of college is an inability to juggle school and work” (Johnson).
