Did you know that depending on the sport, students who play sports in college most likely have less than a 2% chance of becoming professional athletes? At middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country, everyone is arguing over whether or not students with failing grades should be allowed to play sports. In my opinion, a good education is so very important for our country’s youth, especially the athletes. Not a lot of kids are good enough to play in the top college sports programs in the country. But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues.
Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week. For a lot of students, being away from their parents means absolute freedom to do whatever they want, allowing a lot of young adults to “go crazy” in the partying scene.
Soon enough most people go to college today which costs an arm and a leg. College is a place where most people are now treated as adults and teachers become stricter with their rules and assignments. This causes many kids to either try harder or it opens people’s eyes and shows that college is not
Another reason studying is inefficient is procrastination. When you procrastinate you’re not retaining much information needed to study. You don’t leave yourself much time to study, A survey conducted at Rajdhani Colleges shows, “Decline in average time spent by a college student in self study per week… majority of students spend less than 10 hours per week for self study” (Kumar). Just simply choosing the wrong environment impacts your studying abilities. In closing, stress is in your everyday life you can’t avoid
A lot of students disregard grades and homework because the homework gets too overwhelming and they just give up. Students get multiple hours of homework everyday and it becomes to much for a teen and that can cause other effects that interfere with sleeping, stress levels can get to high and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school. Therefor too much homework is not physically, mentally, or emotionally healthy for
People who are in work-study programs do not receive any experience in their desired field of study. The purpose of work-study programs is to instruct students on how to multi-task in between a job and an education. Work study programs allow students to have the responsibility of both an occupation and academics. Many people oppose work study programs because they do not promote the career that students are pursuing. Elizabeth Kenefick explains that “low-income students must increasingly rely on work (and loans) to meet the high costs of college . . .
Some students can't take all the work that the professors give out, and they either drop that class or drop out the whole semester. Student’s faces a lot of things in college that will make them drop out of southwest. Sometimes when the classes begin, and they get their first assignment it be too hard on them. I’ve learned, and talked to some people why they dropped out of southwest, some of they said the work was too hard. Others told me that they stopped playing for their education.
There are a lot of obstacles students face when trying to college and going to college, sometimes these obstacles involve how counseling and emotional support is out of the question and other reasons are fall into the category of not having too much money to afford school or if they could afford college through scholarships they still struggle with meeting their basic needs. Students lots of minority students face constant oppression because of students face discouragement and this can lead students down two roads, sometimes to regret and misery. Minorities have never really grasp the opportunity of getting a higher education because these students are always discouraged from dreaming of college, making
To support this point, he conveys his own feeling of intellectual deficiency when he started college. He claims that he did not have the intellectual capacity to convey his ideas at the level that college required of him: “Inevitably, the students who do well in school and college are those who learn…to produce something resembling intellectualspeak. By what process do we imagine students will learn this language?” (47). While this is his second round of support, it is stronger than his first.
Many of the students enrolled at Second Start Alternative High School are referred as a result of their low rates of attendance at their current schools. Due to this fact, Second Start enforces that students must be present eighty-five percent of the time in order to receive credit each quarter. The policy states that even if a student completes all of their coursework, they will not receive credit if their rate of attendance is below an eighty-five percent. However, students who are chronically absent, rarely complete all of their assignments. Students who have frequent absences find it difficult to complete quality work typically because they missed the associated instruction.
It was good idea to change the Wyandotte attendance policy, if students miss more than seven days in the last semester because most people don’t come school in their senior years. One reason that Wyandotte attendance policy should change because students will fail in their classes. Another reason that Wyandotte’s attendance policy should change because students don’t know what they learn in their classes if they did not come school. The last reason was that it’s hard for students when they went to college because they don’t know anything. In conclusion, if students did not come school in their senior years than it will be really bad for them and also they are not allowed to come in graduation
In this text Jonathan Kozol went to a school that is really not a school because of what they do to there students just to get them to graduate. The students that Jonathan interviews tell him what they go through everyday just to graduate. They explain to him that the school system really doesn’t care about these students not even the teachers, if the teachers where ever there to see these students. Some students wanted to take AP classes so that they have an idea of what college will be like but never get in the class because “it fills up”. Even if these students entered these classes they had a probability that they wouldn’t have a teacher for that course.
Students like Eve are not receiving the proper education they are required to have to graduate, but they found a loophole in order to receive their diploma without learning anything: participation points. Teachers should limit the weight of participation and effort grades so students stop passing classes when they do not learn anything.
