Even though it was not as severe as the Great Depression, it still dealt a heavy blow to our nation in general. The reason I am here talking about child poverty is so that we can work together as a nation to help decrease the rise of child poverty and make the future of our nation even brighter and stronger by starting from our children. But first, let us all look at some of the impacts child poverty has on our nation. First, it reflects badly on the government for being unable to prevent the child poverty rates from increasing and becoming the second worst of the developed nations. This also makes us citizens concerned about our future as the rates of child poverty is still increasing even though it is much slowly then how fast it was increasing.
First, getting good grades is essential to getting the future that many people strive for. Starting to really care for a good grade at a young age matters. But what some school boards don 't notice it that individual grades are going down. Sure many schools have the smart honor roll kids, but behind that are a bunch of D’s and F’s students. “The importance of physical fitness in the development of cognitive and memory skills have long been extolled by scientists.
In his article, “Dare the School Build a New Social Order?”, Dewey hashes over several falsehoods about public education. One of his key points was the importance of schools to shape children in the ways of society, to steer them from right and wrong. Despite this, he acknowledges that schools cannot carry this out ignorantly. Although the goal is for children to grow up with good morals, it is wrong to keep them blind to other ways of life. Well-behaved members of society are highly desired, however, schools should not try to make students think and act the same, as individuality is important in society.
The gender gap in education has been markedly narrowed. In 2014, the net primary school enrolment rates of boys and girls were both 99.8 percent, meaning that China has achieved the United Nations Millennium Development Goals ahead of time and the proportion of female students various levels of education is at least 46.7 percent. The state has set up special funds to reduce the number of illiterate women. In 2013, the illiteracy rate for females at and over the age of 15 was 6.7 percent, 17.4 percentage points lower than in 1995. Women’s average years of schooling have increased, and the gender gap has narrowed.
Albert Einstein once said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” This quote means that without creativity our minds wouldn’t be having fun and what’s life without a little fun? He was very wise to say this because our world would be lifeless with the lack of creativity, therefore the standard grading system should be changed because students aren’t able to show their creativity. The grading system of long-term assignments into projects and oral presentations will be more effective because students will receive better grades, be allowed to fully express themselves through creativity and students lives will be less stressful. Initially, with a new grading system in place students will receive better grades. The reasoning behind this is the grading system won’t be as harsh because there won’t be tests and quizzes to grade.
Good afternoon, and thank you for coming. Today we are going to talk about homeschooling, for some, one of the hardest decisions in life. There are lots of people who believe that homeschooling is useless and that it affects social skills, but we are here to prove them wrong, and to explain the benefits of homeschooling. When a kid is home schooled he doesn't suffer any stress, he doesn't get so bored, and he doesn't have to worry about bullying or every single problem that comes along with it. Just so that you have an idea, “Indiana's annual University High School Survey of Students Engagement” surveyed 81,000 students in 110 high schools across 26 states.
According to the alliance for excellent education, about 54.3% of highschool dropouts are unemployed compared to 31.9% of high school graduates. a highschool dropout makes about 5,200 dollars for income and a high school graduate makes about 287,000 for income. About 37.8% of women that dropped out of highschool were mothers or becoming mothers. Also they found that there are “strong links between educational attainment and teen and young adult parenting.” When one drops out of high school they are less likely to become employed and get more income. More than half of high school dropouts are jobless, compared to 31.9% of high school graduates that are unemployed.
This gives him/her a sense of belonging (Nance, 2016). It is meant to empower students rather than punish them (Nance, 2016) Replacing zero-tolerance policies with restorative justice would likely improve school climate, build healthy relationships amongst students and educators and the student population, promote positive discipline in schools, and keep students in school and out of the juvenile justice system. This practice would likely also decrease the number of suspensions and/or expulsions and lower recidivism rates. The difficulties in implementing this solution would likely be the number of resources and training needed, the fact that those in the community may not support it, and the amount of time and money it may
The project included 10,000 students from Tennessee State. The students were assigned to small size classes of 13 to 17 students and regular classes of 22 to 26 students with and without assistant teacher in regular sized classes for every teacher. The findings of this project have shown that students in reduced size classes had higher academic achievements and the more time students spent in reduced size class even more long lasting their achievements were. However, Hanushek have criticized the project STAR and has mentioned that the student achievements after the returning of students to the normal size classes is not assured. He agrees that small class size may have an impact on students' achievements, but this is not the
Obviously, that is not enough, therefore students will not have the motivation any more to get good grades the next year, because they want something more. I think students should get paid for good grades for several reasons, for example it will motivate the students to work hard, teach the students responsibility, and it will make the teacher’s job easier. Some students around the world are asking this question, “should students be paid for good grades”. Some students say yes we should, because students are working hard to get good grades, so they deserve a proper gift. Imagine the situation if the school pays the student who gets good marks.
