What if conformity could change your life? School uniforms have traditionally been used in private schools, but new reports that outline their benefits have convinced many public schools to implement their own uniforms policies. According to the U.S. Department of Education, “From 2000-2014, the percentage of public schools reporting that they required students to wear uniforms increased from 12 to 20 percent”. This, of course, generates a debate on if school uniforms are really worth it. Undeniably, school uniforms definitely change a student’s life, whether they like it or not.
From Chinese parents’ perspective, when their children are in high school, their mainly focus can only on academic study so that anything distracting them from study hard is a bad thing. Thus, Chinese parents dramatize the issue of puppy love, viewing their children’s involvement in a relationship with their boy/girlfriend as something which would badly influence their current academic performance and implicitly, their future success. Because of this idea, Chinese parents would extremely oppose the happening of puppy love during school years. Once they find out their children is in a relationship, they would tell them it is bad for them and make them apart.
The impact of the mod look was felt a few years into the decade in school wear. Young women wore as high a miniskirt as they could get away with, and brighter colors and patterns filled the school halls. But the first half of the 1960s, especially in high schools, was characterized by a general tendency to maintain a conservative manner of school dress codes. As the mod look became more standard, and as the tremors of the anti establishment sentiments of the latter part of the decade started to be felt, many high-school and college students alike quickly adopted it. For the first half of the twentieth century the big designers targeted adult women since they or their husbands had the money to spend.
School Wide Writing Project Former superintendent, Lawrence B. Shlack argues in his article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, that too many students believe that going to college is the only option after high school in order to be successful. The main purpose of this article is to convince students to be less narrow-minded on the topic of post-high school decisions and effectively provides the reasoning behind his logic and provides alternatives. As a retired superintendent, Schlack proves that he has sufficient credibility and knowledge of high school students and what most of them are thinking. The use of pathos and ethos combined with his credibility appeals to the readers strongly by making the article relatable for most high schoolers.
College coaches look at the look at the students grades from high school to determine if they want them on their team or not. That is why it seems problematic to me why some student athletes don’t care if they’re barely passing as long as they are eligible to play. Most student athletes struggle at getting their work done or turning it in on time because half
How would Decoras impact NEISD dress code?Is this style affect others in a good way or a bad way?I think some people find this style not professional and do not allow this at schools because at school people want students to try and look more proficient and accomplished.

Zinsheteyn goes on about extensive test prep, “And the College Board is arguing that the new SAT more accurately reflects what students learn in school, rebuffing criticism that acing the SAT requires mastering a separate curriculum through extensive test-prep services.” Many parents are willing to spend a large amount of money to see their kid succeed. Some test-prep services can cost up to $1,000 or more depending on the type of service you choose. Some families do not have that type of income to send their kids to elite test-prep programs which help even out the fairness for the test
Education World says, “as the year goes on, more students are testing the rules by wearing jeans or other banned items.” If teachers aren’t strict about the dress code students can get by without trouble. Who is going to catch everyone breaking the dress code anyways and what are you going to do when you do catch them? Some schools send them home to change but then they are either going to stay home or come back and miss school. Others order a detention but is that really going to keep all students from breaking the dress code?
In order to combat what they believe to be unjust dress policies, students have taken to the internet to share their stories of being “dress coded” or protest during school hours in attire that the rules prohibit. They challenge the idea some dress codes imply that women should be blamed for the actions of men. Research Question Explanation The research question is how do dress codes affect the high school students’ mindset because there are clear disagreements on the effectiveness and motives of school dress codes.
The main difference is that the honors students are guaranteed credit for the class, but an AP student may not receive a credit at all because they do not pass the final exam. Tierney also states “The courses cover too much material and do so too quickly and superficially. In short, AP courses are a forced march through a preordained subject, leaving no time for a high-school teacher to take her or his students down some path of mutual interest. The AP classroom is where intellectual curiosity goes to die.” By taking a different course such as an honors class students are able to gain more learning and go into depth with the
Mark Mathbane’s article “ Appearances Are Destructive,” published in the August 26, 1993, issue of New York Times, discusses the best use of school dress codes in order to develop learning and protect the students. Mathbane states that not having school dress code will cause learning distractions among the students, and raise competition among student over materialistic. Moreover, students will commit crimes in order to make money for expensive clothes. The reason students tend to pay more attention to clothes in school because cool clothes give them status and gaining them respect from the peers. In order to respond to the civil libertarians argue that dress codes break the rule of Americans freedom of expression; Mathbane notes that
It seems as though in addition to the school system, now even parents believe that going straight to college with a career plan is the only option for their kids! Bottom line, there are other ways to have a good life. Making students feel as though these decisions are important is necessary, but we shouldn 't have ridiculous amounts of pressure piled on us to make major life decisions so quickly. I want my years of high school to be filled with exploration and open
So why not let them better prepare themselves by reading a more challenging and mature book. Therefore, I believe that school board members should not ban books from the school library because, students can get more of a challenge from certain books, you also can get many life lessons from a more mature book, and students also get more of a choice which means more books to read. So I think it is completely wrong to ban books from the school
Introduction (literature review) We chose a study to find out what drives a community college student to choose particular courses. Many students try to find the easiest option to get in and out as soon as possible; however, these classes that appeal to students initially tend to be more challenging than expected. We are aware that many community college students also work and have other priorities outside of school. This may be the reason why students are searching for less challenging courses.
