Farber also argues that I disagree with Farber’s viewpoint on the grading system and the effect on students. In Farber’s essay, he argues that the school grading system should be abolished. Farber argues that students do not retain everything. They only retain the information until the final exam than it is forgotten. He said, “What we get on our final is all-important; what we retain after the final is irrelevant.” He is saying that what we remember after the final is not important to our everyday life.
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).

In order to comprehend the curriculum, you must understand that there needs to be a balance between content and skills which is achieved through ongoing discussions with other educators. Among the instruction portion it is key to know that the purpose is not to cover the curriculum, but uses the instruction flexibly to maximize learning for all students. And most controversially is the topic of grades. Two key factors are reviewed; first, grades should never come as a surprise, second, grading doesn’t improve learning but merely summarizes what has been learned. A recurring line that Cooper emphasizes throughout his work is that schools and teachers must maximize learning for all students.
In any school you have attended, plagiarism is a situation that a writer should not put themselves in under any circumstances. When reading the essay “Something Borrowed,” Malcolm Gladwell gave insight into the flaws of plagiarism that writers may not have thought about before. The first being that plagiarism is never acceptable (927). The second issue with plagiarism is recognizing the differences that can or cannot “inhibit creativity” (931).

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 .
This issue also affects students who are not as interested in the arts because they will never get to appreciate how significant art is to Canadian culture. Teachers, especially teachers who specialize in the arts, are now having difficulty finding jobs in their field because of the limited spots available.
