Some people at Webb City High School would be very angry to find out that they will no longer be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities due to their grades. The students who really want to play sports though would get into gear and get their grades up to prove that they deserve to play. What is a School without education? Pointless. Other people in the community believe that the “C rule” is not fair for the people who do not participate in any extracurricular activities because they will not be being punished. This is in fact not true. Juniors and Seniors with failing grades are forced to stay for study hall each day while there piers are going home. Study hall provides them with the extra time they need to get their work done in order to raise their grades. Juniors and Seniors must continue going to study hall until they have raised their grades .
For many people, higher education is needed as they pursue their desired career paths. However, the same seven deadly sins of lust, gluttony, envy, greed, anger, sloth, and pride that keep one unhappy and unmotivated in everyday life, even if one does not realize these are the source of their unhappiness, can also be applied even more specifically to students. Most will struggle with at least one of these areas, if not all of them, in their academic journey. Being aware of the common potential downfalls, though, can better set up a student opportunities to overcome them. This, in turn, will help them in overcoming obstacles in their life after school as well.
Pittsburgh is known to be a very popular place with many people which means there will be a lot of traffic, but where does everyone park? Parking is an ongoing problem for many different cities but Pittsburgh for sure has very limited parking. You are always hunting to find a spot. This would not be as much of a problem unless you were a college student trying to get to class and then you end up ten minutes late since you could not find a spot. College students, such as people from Point Park University, have been complaining about the parking in Pittsburgh and want there to be something done about it. Not everyone wants to stay on campus and they may not be in walking distance of the campus. When they drive to class they want there to be a
“...if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours,”( Thoreau 625). Henry David Thoreau shares his journey and experiences throughout Walden. Thoreau speaks greatly about the elements of self reliance and achieving goals. Several of Thoreau's lessons are still relevant in today's society, two of his fundamental ideas are that wisdom does not come from education and that loneliness is not the same thing as being alone.
Students never have a complete experience except on the installment plan (Gatto, part I, pars 11). I received flashbacks from my childhood, when I knew there could have been additional work to do before the bell rang. I always ended up being swept away into a completely different environment to advance skills in a random field of knowledge. To counter my agreement, the set class times did help in my erudition to what studies I relished more and the areas which I felt were unbearable. This determined my time management based on interests outside of school. Personally, I enjoyed a broad range of classes which invoked me into joining intellectual groups. Such as Knowledge Bowl, Chess Club, Student Council, Mathletes, and Theater.
They cannot concentrate, especially at school, with too much homework. A student’s mind should stay focused and calm. They should rest, if rest enough so that they can work with energy. The student should be given a certain amount of work so that they can be prepared if a test or an exam is near. 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
Many people wonder what they want to do after high school graduation. There are many options to go with such as, military, college, or even taking a break for a little bit. Out of all of these though, going to college would be one of the best ideas because it can help a person a lot in their life. College is also a great opportunity to help get the things someone needs in their life. A college education is valuable because one can have better wealth, a better education, and can give one a healthier lifestyle.
They need time to grade exams and finalize grades from the previous semester, and they only have a short break between school years (Towler). By the time they do this, they might have less than a week to prepare themselves, their lessons, and their rooms (Towler). This is not an adequate amount of time for the teachers and it could impact students learning as well (Towler). Teachers also might have a hard time collaborating with each other because many of them are on different tracks (Towler). Students on different tracks might be learning completely different, or maybe even opposite lessons due to lack of collaboration between their teachers (Towler). Teachers are forced to share classrooms and supplies with teachers on other tracks in many year round schools, making it difficult to use their room to its full potential for learning (Zubrzycki). Any teachers and staff that want to continue to further their own education by attending college over summers will have to find another way to fit it in their schedule, or just not do it at all (Vandewater). If teachers Cannot further themselves educationally in college, their students will be at a disadvantage because their teacher simply would have less information to teach them (Vandewater). They also might try to fit in college after school (Vandewater). This could result in the educator falling behind on grading and could
There are 24 hours in a day, 8 of those hours belong to school. From the moment when a student wakes up, they begin to prepare for school then go to school, most schools start around 8:00-9:00 am, so most students get up 1-2 hours earlier to get ready. Students need at least 8-9 hours of sleep to be able to function. With students having after school activities that take up around 2 hours, students are exhausted and when they get home all the want to do is relax, but some of them have responsibilities that they have to do, which gives them less time to relax from a long day of school. On top of having homework students end up staying up late getting all their work done, which cause them to be less focus the next day not allowing the
Growing up, for most people, going to college is not an option- its an expectation. In our society, going to college has become a fundamental part of our education, becoming an adult, and for most people just simply part of our lives. However, as people grow up and experience reality, the realization hits that college may not be as simple as once thought. As much as attending college is expected from the majority of young people, dropping out of college is not. Even with the idealization of the college experience, some students are forced to cut their education short due to a plethora of issues. Every person has individual problems they have to face such as family, money, or mental issues, but there might be multiple reasons and levels of

For this project, I went to the University Center main lobby to observe people’s behavior. In this space, there are many people who were walking around, sitting at tables, and going to classes. This public area can be accessed by anyone for most of the day, except at night. I decided to sit toward the back of the lobby area, so I could watch everyone while they went about their business. I noticed several different behaviors between people. Some of this behavior seemed to be normal while others, I noticed that were different and I have never noticed it before. Some behaviors also bothered me.
Some parents are reacting to an outdated perception that there will be a lack of discipline when students have too much free time, and this lack of discipline will keep them from getting the best possible education. We all know there are only a few kids who are irresponsible in their behavior at Monarch, and it is these students who should not be allowed off campus. An open campus should be an earned privilege based on the student’s maturity and good
When students go home after school they should be able to relax right? In an ideal world students should just be able to take there bag off and chill, go out with friends, play video games or go play sports at the park or something right, but no. Nowadays the average high school teenager has to go home, sit down at a table and basically continue school for another two-three hours. We have to do homework almost immediately after school because if we don’t then we will be up until 12 or later doing homework. Not to mention the students athletes that come home late anyway from practices/games and then have to take a shower, eat dinner and then sit down to finish all of their homework. I attend Montgomery Blair high school, where we have a block schedule so our homework isn’t due for two days which is helpful but most high schools students have eight classes a day and the homework assigned is normally due the next day of school. All of this homework causes stress amongst teenagers. Students have to stress every single day in school to make sure they do well so they can attend the college of their chose, we shouldn’t have to go
There’s no doubt that a bad teacher can make school such a frustrating, embarrassing and bad experience, such student won’t learn much. Bad teachers often don’t have organization skills, class management, and professionalism. Teachers like these make high school difficult. This paper discusses traits of bad teachers, and the study habits they fail to create, in their students.
