You have an assignment due the next day, all of the work is piling up. Trying to cram in everything in one day is stressful, feeling like you can’t be anything successful in life. Or maybe you’re just trying to avoid your bully. Now, your grades are just dropping. Could school be one of the many causes of depression and stress?
They 're piled under a ample amount of work and feel, more often than not, that if they can 't follow through with the expectations of superiors of family then there 's no reason to work as hard or go to school at all. “Instead, even if they know better, they find themselves lashing out or totally shutting down.” (High-Stress High School) It 's of no surprise that a student would want to shut down under all as a result of the three- to- four hour homework sessions, studying for practice test and quizzes, and still having to juggle a extracurricular activity for the sake of their college applications. Colleges are complaining that kids are “disengaged” studies and statistics show that “they’re dropping out, taking a long time to graduate. It’s not developmentally appropriate for them to work so hard,” says Gwadz, one of the authors of the recent study. It 's been proven that stress can be the very thing motivates a student to do better, but a surplus of anything can be too much for a single person.
No one likes stress because it’s not okay for young kids to be taking on the amount of stress they have. When homework piles up throughout the week kids can get extremely stressed which can lead to poor performances on tests, in sports, and bad sleeping. The Providence Journal said, “three out of four students say they are often or always stressed out by schoolwork.” Students are already taught many things throughout a day and the last thing they need is to go do more hard work for school, instead, tey need to be doing other activities and getting a good night’s
Adults have adult-sized problems, which can make your stress seem small in comparison. Maybe they are having their own relationship problems and so have written off your (very real) heartache. Maybe stress at work has left them unsympathetic to your stress at school. Whatever the reason, you need to respect that your parents have a lot of grownup problems to deal with. At the same time, they need to respect that you’ve got your own challenges to face.
Currently, Americans understand many high school students display signs of daunting results regarding the effects of school stresses. So, why have we not been able to capitalize on the social, physical, emotional/psychological, mental, behavioral, and technological negative impacts that hurt students rather than guide them to better academic success. With this said, we certainly will not see immediate results in the near future regarding high school students. So, how do we know they have been negatively impacted throughout high school? Not only are one in five students clinically depressed, but according to Robert Leahy, director of American Institute of Cognitive Therapy, “the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950’s.” Furthermore, our educational system compels its high school students to develop “life-skills, personal responsibility, and uniqueness.” This method of teaching and learning ultimately causes stress and eventually the exact opposite effects of what the system wants to come about.
But this does not mean that they should be given endless stacks of homework. By this, I mean when they are given a lot of homework for the next day, the student will gets upset and do not want to go to school because he doesn 't want punishment for what he couldn 't do. This is my personal opinion. Homework is a never-ending conflict at school, the students want less homework but the teachers have to give them the homework, so they can study at home. Lastly, I would say a student needs time to learn but also time to play and relax and to enjoy life with his family and
Accordingly, this shows that students are under stress while preparing for standardized tests. Students are unable to perform well on standardized tests under stress, and are unable to pick the school of their choice due to the stress that causes them to
Summing this up it basically is shooting ourselves in the foot for the road ahead of us and in the future. There always comes a time when we need to study for our core classes but when we already don't have time for these classes where are we going to find time to study for them. Studying for these classes is one the main keys to passing them. If we don't pass them then what now? Stress really starts to ingulf kids in middle school which leads to more and more health issues.
If a student is stressed out by all of the competition, they probably couldn’t focus on all of their school work and their grades would start to drop some. This would not be good because we all know how important grades are to people. Competition would also consume most of the students’ time. If a student truly wanted to win a competition, they would probably lose too much of their free time and that would probably just stress them out even more. This is just another reason why we should not have as much competition surrounding
By this time next year I will be in all college classes and working more hours and knowing all that stress is going to be is starting to worry me now, am I going to be able to do this. The constant questions that are going through my mind that I don’t have the answer to. The stress of everything knowing if I do one little thing wrong it will affect my life and won’t affect me in a good way either. Although, high school has been very tough for me and being a student can be considered as being a tough job,I feel as it will all be very well worth it in the end to be able to have my diploma and get a good job and even also, some scholarships to get into a good school or even the community college and help with expenses. Maybe if I buckle down this year even when things get tougher than what they have been I will be able to go farther in life and to me that is all very well worth it.
