This proves that the new classwork and homework that the new standards have implemented have forced schools to buy the new technology or else the students would be left helpless and unable to learn. However, there is another disadvantage to the Common Core system. Many teachers are not trained to teach Common Core according the mandatory standards therefore it costs a lot of money to provide the necessary programs to teach teachers. According to Susan Farrer, “...teacher workshops…benefit students’ lives when they learn how to set up a healthy lifestyle”. Thus demonstrating how not only are schools having to pay for the new technology
For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
If their paychecks were based off of their students success in their classes, their entire attitudes would change. They would take their job more seriously, and have some motivation to do their job the thorough way students need. “Many performance based pay systems include components which allow principals to terminate teachers who continuously fail to meet goals and objectives. Most teacher unions adamantly opposed performance based pay because of this element. Standard teacher contracts make it difficult to terminate employment, but a performance based pay contract makes it easier to remove a bad teacher.
Having to deal with school all year with spread out and sparse breaks would become immensely annoying to students and would lower their performance in school. The constant work load would also tire students out much more quickly than traditional school years. Summer break gives students a good amount of time to refresh themselves and get back into school more easily, but if this is shortened or cut out completely, students don't get this refresher. Students on this schedule do still get just as many break days, they are just much more spread out and sparse. Year-round schooling just doesn't give students enough time to feel refreshed enough to want to get back into
There are other ways you can learn in the classroom, you can learn from the environment that is around you. This process is known as enculturation and it can affect and even enhance learning. Repetition is what really affects someone in a culture. By seeing, hearing, and doing things over and over they start to become part of who you are. From the class I observed I noticed that the teacher often used repetition as the way to get the students to learn and get the correct answer.
If students grades continue to drop, this could be a and effect of many problems. Maybe you do not have a good teacher, or you just are not strong in a particular subject. But, whatever the case is, statistics show that the main cause in grades dropping is due to a lack of motivation. Being in a school where you have a long term goal is proven to interest more students and that leads to more students showing up for school. If more students show up to school that means that they have a larger interest and more motivation to learn something new, and causes an increase in students
After all, education should come first at schools. Schools don 't want to charge for sports, but many have to. " This shows that the schools spend more money on our school supplies so that we can learn but when it comes time to get sports equipment it 's time for parents to help. In the text, it said “ Gary Frisch, a school
It could help the kids who struggle in school to get more help with what they don’t understand. Some families don’t go on vacations so for those kids who don’t go on vacations they wouldn’t complain that they are bored and have nothing to do because they would be at school. Most students would not want school to be year round and I agree with that. School year round is way too much for us kids. I think we should be able to have time off when it is warm to do fun things.
While academics are important, students should spend time playing sports, socializing, doing chores, etc. In addition, most schools only have the budget to pay the best students, so competition between classmates would increase. Overall, the stress added by offering monetary awards is not beneficial. In conclusion, high schools should not pay their students for receiving good grades. Money is not always the best incentive for achievement, especially because it often builds stress and greed.
Although we have free public schools it doesn’t mean we have the brightest students in the world. This is because a free education is not parallel with a good education. In the American educational system today students are not good at learning topics. This is due to standardized testing and memorized based tests no one can really deeply understand topics. In an society where people focus on results society tends to loss track in the middle.
The VHSL is not giving the people what they believe is right and they are then creating a crack in the system. Schools that are at a disadvantage are in a bad place because of the fact that not everyone in that school will have the opportunity to vote. With all these factors and facts together, passing the bill will benefit everyone and will help make more efficient decision making process and there will no longer be this divide between the VHSL and the
