The students who use the honor codes become good citizens in the future. Honor codes are helpful because there are expectations, no more cheating and social codes. Honor codes can only work if the school has expectations for their students. To begin, some say that because of our culture that the schools can not expect student to tell their peers for cheating (Fleischmann 113). Well if the honor code is in place, teachers and their peers
At Cedaredge High School we do not have a written honor code. Our honor code runs along the lines of bruin pride versus an actual honor code. If a student written honor code that did not change with who you are or the family you are a part of could be established at CHS then it would greatly improve our school environment. An enormous issue the honor code must address is the prevalence of cheating. A school can not function without a set guideline of rules, responsibilities, and disciplinary actions.
In today’s education system, there is an ongoing debate concerning conformity and individuality. The majority of schools conform to similar curriculum as a means of ‘leveling the academic playing field’ and giving all students a fair and equal chance of success. But does this sense of conformity actually benefit students? While it is necessary to have some conformity in the curriculum taught to students nationwide, there should be an aspect of individuality as well. Schools should adopt a more individualistic approach towards the classes students must take, and less of one concerned solely on test performance, because it would benefit students upon graduation by allowing them to pursue studies that interest them, and also benefit the school
With revisions to allow students and staff to have more say in the code, and through a pledge of honor the code could run more effectively in schools. Until this can happen a code cannot be forced upon people who have no say in the content. With these revisions I believe an honor code could be effective to prevent most students from cheating by raising their moral standards for their school and for themselves. By obtaining these standards schools will be able to advance out of the past creating a brighter future for the people of the
The believing game helped me understand how life works and not become so stressed if something does not go my way. Not all teachers will teach to my specific learning style. Believing that I can do well in a class and learn from any teacher helped me not only deal with high school, but will also help me throughout college and life. The believing game does not just pertain to academic struggles, but also any obstacle one may face throughout life. I learned that changing my perspective allows me to see that sometimes things are my fault and it is myself that needs to change, not other
It help get rid of bullying acts in schools based on what the students are wearing. Uniforms eliminate the separation of social classes and spread a sense of equality among students. Moreover, uniforms make schools look more formal and professional and make the students feel proud of their schools. Studies show that students learn better and act more responsibly when they wear uniforms. High schools should require uniforms in order to benefit both the students and society as a
Classmates need to make these students feel welcome. Not only are they just as smart as them but they might even be of higher intelligence. At the end of the day, every student is there for the same thing and that is to learn, Undocumented students have everthing against thme, the least the university could do is show that the campus is in fact 'undocufriendly'. Just support is enough to suceed, and if the learning is happening in a safe welcoming environment then there will be great things coming from these
There are three major positions on this issue. The first position is that student dress codes are necessary to produce a safe and productive environment for students, which will facilitate high achievement. The second position goes even farther, and says that dress codes should mandate uniforms for all students, claiming that the uniforms will make students focus more while removing concerns about fashion differences that would otherwise harm their self-esteem. Last, there is the position that school uniforms are unnecessary, and that they pose an unfair cost burden to families and restrict students' constitutional rights to free expression. Each side has some evidence in its favor, but ultimately the lack of hard statistics on costs and grading effects from dress codes make it apparent that more research is necessary to figure out what position has the best support for
Dress codes are put into place to promote the safety of the students. An article published by Fresno.edu compiled a list of benefits to a dress code. Some of the benefits included are helping the student dress appropriate to protect the student wearing the clothing and the fellow students. Dress codes give students a feeling of safety and comfort when they see their students wearing similar, if not the same, attire as their fellow classmates and would not feel like a target of bullying if they cannot afford the same brands as their peers if there was a more lenient or no dress code at all. One of my fellow classmate, Rodney Louima, brought light to this topic by telling me, " Dress code is good because it doesn't make a person feel bad that they don't have all the "hot brands" because we all basically look the same no matter what the brand.
Why Common Core Standards Should Be More Common Why would students not want to be on a level playing field in their education? Why would they not want to be able to move seamlessly between states? These opportunities are given to students by Common Core. Although many opponents may say that these standards are a barrier of creativity, the Common Core Standards being accepted in all fifty states would help America, because it would have teachers across state borders instructing similar lesson plans, it would decrease the achievement gap, and it would better prepare students for college and the workforce by teaching them the needed materials for their futures. The Common Core being accepted in all fifty states would be helpful, because all schools would be teaching similar lesson plans.
The student author of the editorial seems to respect the honor code Groveton expects from its students, yet the author assumes the code itself is solely responsible for the alleged reduction in cheating at the school. Citing a survey to further empahsize the aforementioned assumption, the author only invites more speculation on the topic rather than providing further evidence as intended. While cheating is a frowned upon topic in all universities, this editorial is rife with assumptions and fallacious deduction, rendering the argument weak and unconvincing. First, the reporting system for Groveton 's novel honor code and the "old-fashioned" system it replaced both relyed solely on a human witness for reporting. Teachers used to monitor students and the new protocol calls for students to monitor each other and report any instances of cheating.
Downgrading dishonest academic integrity in school environments will allow students to understand the importance of an honor code. It is embarrassing to be caught cheating by peers knowing that the honor code is enforced. Developing a community that takes an honor code seriously will decrease the amount of cheating. At my high school, certain teachers will remind students of academic integrity, however, there is not a community for it. Even without an honor code at my high school, students should be remind constantly about academic integrity.
