Schools are still cutting out electives and still can’t afford some of the basic things that students should have in their learning environment. Lynda Barry in her article The Sanctuary of School talks about how for some kids their school is their safe haven. She shows how valuable extracurricular activities and after school programs are when she says,” Before and after school programs are cut and we are told that public school are not made for baby-sitting children. If parents are neglectful temporarily or permanently, for whatever reason, it’s certainly sad, but their unlucky children must fend for themselves. (Barry 724-725) There are children in our communities that depend on the school to keep them safe and to offer protection when their parents are unable to do that but the schools are
For example, some parents are reluctant to vaccinate their children against diseases like Hemophilic Influenza if they won’t be attending daycare. While daycares require this vaccine, this deadly disease is a threat to all children, even if they do not attend daycare (Bronfin 3). People who oppose mandatory vaccinations for public school children point out parents concerned with their children being around unvaccinated children could move their child to a private institution requiring immunization (Murphy 2). This reasoning would only add extra stress for families trying to find schools for their children and could cost parents more money than just being able to send their child to a free public school without fear. The next most controversial concern parents have regards the ingredients in some vaccinations.
Indeed, while it is important for children to exercise and to learn how to keep their bodies in shape, high school students should not be required to take P.E. classes every year of high school. I think that if a student has taken at least two years of P.E. already and still don’t exercise properly by themselves having them take a P.E. class every year for the rest of their school life would be a waste of time that they could be using to study other things.
There are a lot of reasons why parents should stop homeschooling their children and send them to public or private schools. One of the reasons is that homeschooling creates an incredible amount of isolation for the child. Homeschooling won’t let the kid be surrounded by children with the same age, and this will affect the child’s social life. No one
School is a place where you go to spend about half of your life learning about topics that simply do not interest you or that truly won’t help you in the future. The U.S government tells the teachers what they need to teach in their schools for the class curriculums, so that the students can learn a healthy amount of material. The best thing is that many high schools fail to teach their students important things. Many teachers just pass students along through their class, because they don’t want to hold them back and deal with them for another year, but soon enough most of us move onto college. I’ve seen many people fail during college, because their high school did not push them to try to achieve great grades.
If I was a parent, I would desire that a public health department would enforce that all children should vaccinated before they attend school; even though, there still are some parents that do not believe in vaccinations. I would like to expect that my child would be safe from diseases that are preventable by vaccinating. Childhood vaccinations should require for all American families. There has not been enough truthful evidence that connects vaccinations with autism or any other disease; therefore, why do some parents choose not to vaccinate their children. In Nicholas Kristof’s article “The Dangers of Vaccine Denial,” Dr. Philip J. Landrian writes “that there may be environmental factors linked to autism, but these relate to endocrine disrupting chemical in consumer products, not vaccines” (Kristof’s pp3).
For example, if a principal was to walk in, he/she will be able to see what the students would be learning that day. Not only are these important for her students to stay on schedule, but if she were to be absent, these lesson plans help the substitute know what the students need to complete that day. Another type of writing she deals with in her daily routine is sending emails. As mentioned before, Mrs. Martinez is the Head Grade Level Chair for Kindergarten which means she organizes and shares different ideas with the rest of the Kindergarten teachers. This is extremely important because they rely on her for her emails on what is going to happen
This rule takes opportunities away from the future of our country: the students. Extracurricular activities teach valuable lessons to students that could be blocked off by the “No Pass, No Play” rule. Even if a student is failing, the teacher is supposed to help them which nullifies the purpose of the “No Pass, No Play” rule. The “No Pass, No Play” rule should not be in any schools. Students shouldn’t
We the people deserve the right to be free. We the people deserve the right of religion. We the people deserve the right to refuse to force children to get medical vaccinations before attending a public school. For decades, the altercation between whether children should be vaccinated or not has been debated between many parents, teachers, and even federal level officials. Should the United States put public safety before civil rights?
The author is incorrect when she explains, “Too much competition too early in life can affect a child’s development” (54). Children need competition in their life because it teaches the child teamwork, cooperation, and individual performance. If children do not have struggles in their life then they will think life is easy and everything is handed to them, but life isn’t easy you need to work hard. So by quitting competitive sports they are quitting in working hard. When the child grows up and gets a job they might need to fight for raises, and the competition when they were young would help them when they are older.
