What if your school eliminated all the logos, pictures, patterns, and even some colors from your clothing options? This exact thing has happened at around twenty-three percent of public schools in the U.S, and your school could be next. Unless you enjoy being forced to wear the same thing every day, school uniforms are most likely clashing with your ideas of a good education. School uniforms hinder students because they are difficult to enforce, students lose freedom of expression, and they are an unfair expense or even a financial burden for parents. ` First of all, school uniforms are extremely difficult to enforce.
When coming to Arcadia High School I didn’t know what to feel like, would I say frightened, worried, or energized? For this reason I decided that I felt confused. I was a bit stressed at the thought of getting bad grades. I entered school and saw what looked like a beehive of people going where they needed to go. So like many freshmen on their first day I got lost looking for my first class, it was such a big school and many of the halls weren’t even in alphabetical order.
Having a school system run on a four-day rotation would increase their success by offering more opportunities for lesson and work time. Lessons in class are rushed and left unfinished due to the tight time restraints placed upon teachers. They are given an inadequate amount of time to teach the excessive amount of material given to them to cover and, more often than not, they fall behind in their lesson plan, leaving them unable to teach all of the topics in each of their classes. Teachers struggle in reciting the entire lesson within the given time. With the extra fifteen to twenty minutes on their hands they could
During the late 1980s and early 1990s, metal detectors were being installed in many New York City public schools. Their purpose are to maintain a safe and secure environment. Even today, you will find metal detectors in almost every public school in New York City. I’ve graduated from an NYC public high school where we had full time scanning, which means that every day we had to go through scanning, take off our belts, jewelry, and any other metallic items. As a result, many students are often late to class due to long lines of students waiting to be scanned.
There’s no doubt that being an eighth grader has many challenges. In the passage ‘The Challenges of Being an Eighth grader’ states that, “Because of the boatloads of homework we seem to get, and after-school activities galore, if one of your friends has different classes than you then you may rarely get to see them” (Jenkins 14). That means that we get a lot of work as eighth graders and not as much free time to see our friends from the year before. Another statement said, “Many [students] are afraid that their family will embarrass them at a school function” (Jenkins 14). Family members that could be attending the same school could be embarrassing, which adds pressure to them.
This is what happened to me, but in the end I passed my subjects. However, I got three failures during that year, so I couldn’t be there the next year. My mom was disappointed at the end, because the teacher could not do anything about the 3 failures, so I had to change schools. I feel that at this age was hard for me because I had all my friends and my brothers in that school. Now, I was going to be by myself in another school.
We already spend 8 hours at school each day, and homework will disrupt this rule, which will lead to an unbalanced life. Homework will reduce a student’s sleeping and playing time, which will ultimately lead to a negative impact on their performance during the day. Schooling to a student is just as stressful as work to parents. Adults usually work the same length of time each day and come home exhausted, yet they can’t understand why their child have trouble focusing on their homework. The pressure of having to complete their homework everyday can be quite daunting for some children, and they need time to refresh their minds and bodies.
Human development is a long and complex process, varying wildly from individual to individual. Some children do not speak until they have learned to form complete sentences, and others remain in the stage of incoherent babble for years longer than average. Likewise, advanced math occasionally clicks in the brain of a prodigal eight-year-old, whereas many adults can never get a grasp on algebra. Disparities such as these are quite normal, even good for the survival of our species, but in recent years, a developmentally stagnating epidemic has swept through our school and debilitated many students. While most children are able to walk before the age of twelve months, it seems that an astoundingly large portion of Central’s population has not reached this basic milestone.
The transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. The 3 reasons why the transition was a big change for me was because I don't have classes with my friends, I don't have effective teachers, and my curfew was extended when I entered high school. Having to adapt to this change has been hard for me, but slowly I am getting used to it. Having different classes from my friends is one of the reasons why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. For example, in middle school, I had all my class with my best friends.
First, standardized tests cause stress among students. Students who do not have to take standardized tests will not have as much stress as students who take theses tests. According to Bill Maxwell, who did the research, “Each year, thousands of high school students stress out as they prepare to take the SAT or ACT tests to get into college. Many researchers suggest that the singular importance placed on these tests has produced a culture of questionable meritocracy and unfairly blocked thousands of otherwise deserving students from entering the schools of their choice”(Maxell). Accordingly, this shows that students are under stress while preparing for standardized tests.
