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
This is part of the model minority stereotype. While society often puts the pressure on minority students the pressure can be put on from within the family as well. When Razia felt she was not meeting the expectation she went to work at Pioneer Spirit and the reader can see how well that worked out. In the book Desi Land Teen Culture, Class and Success in Silicon Valley by Shalini Shankar the effects of the model minority on the students who are not in the top ten percent of their classes are addressed. Shankar writes “for Asian American students, the model minority stereotype implies that high academic achievement and excellent conduct are foregone conclusions.” By assuming that academic success is a guarantee and not something that needs the be worked hard for in order to achieve, it can be really damaging for either said of the spectrum.
Permissive parenting style is when parents tend to be lenient and may only step in when there is a serious problem. There may be few consequences for misbehavior because parents have an attitude of "kids will be kids." Permissive parenting is potentially a harmful style of parenting simply because permissive parents take on more of a friend role than a parent role. Few rules are set for the children of permissive parents, and the rules are inconsistent when they do exist. This lack of structure causes children to grow up with little self-discipline and self-control.
Restricting a child to one set of behaviors can psychologically damage them. Maria do Mar Pereira, a sociological researcher, found in a study that “constant effort to manage one’s everyday life in line with gender norms produces significant anxiety, insecurity, stress and low self-esteem for both boys and girls, and both for ‘popular’ young people and those who have lower status in school” (Forcing
Standardized testing is an issue with students fearful to fail the tests, with all the pressure and tension on them to overcome this predicament, as well as teachers ' jobs being in jeopardy. Most students from lower income families are at a disadvantage with this setup and groundwork for standardized tests, such as the SAT. A wealthier, more affluent family can buy higher quality and superior preparation books. Students even turn to various methods such as cheating, in order to overcome the tests. Another bad example of the aftermath of standardized testing is cramming, which some might do as a result of the lack of concern with studies.
Even if the process is successful, it would be very hard and challenging for both the adoptee and the adoptive parents. Some challenges include, low levels of English, lack of interpreters in U.S. schools, disadvantage of racial and ethnic minority status, and other challenges depending on their age (Thomas, 2016). This may cause the transracial adoptee to have a hard time to understand the people around them and cause them to perform poorly in school. Children who arrived in their teens were most likely to do more poorly in school than those who arrive in the U.S. when they are below the age of six. Not only do transracial adoptees do poorly in school, but it could affect them mentally too.
Initial academic skills are tied back with the home environment, where low literacy environments and chronic stress negatively affect a student’s academic skills. The school systems in low socioeconomic communities are often under resourced, negatively affecting students’ academic progress inadequate education and increased dropout rates affect children’s academic achievement, disseminating the low socioeconomic status of the community.

Individuals with higher SES have enough income and are more likely to have positive health outcome. Furthermore, it is essential to note that schools located in regions with lower socioeconomic status do not have enough necessary resources that enhance effective educational practices and programs. As a result, these school systems are not in a position to offer quality education compared to school systems situated in high-SES communities. In summary, socioeconomic status is a powerful variable that determines an individual and community social position. Low SES in alignment with its associates like poor health status and low-quality education continuously affects the general productivity of a community.
Have you ever wondered how grades actually do help students throughout their career in school? Yes, many do believe grades do not help, can cause stress to students overall making them perform at a lesser level and sometimes some believe that school isn’t even needed at all in a child’s life. Grades can affect a student’s learning and constant low grades can bring them down and their mindset of just being a below average student. However, grades do help students by showing the student’s progress in school whether they are doing good or bad and grades give a goal to get a better grade by trying harder to get that grade a student wants. First, grades show progress to everyone besides just the student.
