Have you ever missed school days before a holiday break to prepare to travel? Has the weather ever influenced your decision on attending school? Extreme cold weather can influence students and their parents decision to miss school anyway thus leading to unexcused absences. Unexcused and unexpected absences from school can gradually add up. That action can soon lead to failed classes.
Greater possibility of class suspensions - More suspensions might incur due to bad weather reports on the term break months. In my opinion, more study and research must be done before entering to the new academic calendar and yet the issue is still debatable on some schools. As said by Chairperson of CHED (Commission on Higher Education), Patricia Licuanan (March, 2014), it is not advisable to shift the calendar year with no prior researches. She also emphasized that the June start of classes is the most feasible. In addition, FEU Diliman might have problems on the shifting with the reasons stated below: ·FeuDiliman has a trimestral system.
This is Hailey Bernot I am writing to discuss an important issue that I have noticed in Mentor High School. Thirty Three percent of teenagers report falling asleep in school and this is something that I have noticed daily at Mentor High. The school day at Mentor High School starts way too early and I think that many students and staff members would agree because it is affecting students learning and health. Schools across the world start at as early as 7 A.M. or as late at 9 A.M. Many early starting high schools have changed their starting times because students grades were dropping and they were not as prepared and focused.
This is a big debate that has just recently come into light. Although suspension has been around for many years, schools should stop suspending their students because, suspending students is harmful to their academic career, increases the chances of a student dropping out and it does not teach students how to properly
E-days. What are they, what happens, and how are they done? Some schools use e-days for snow, health scares, and other emergencies. Along comes a blizzard, the kids are home from school, which means parents must find a babysitter, get them there, and pay for the services. Some schools opt to replace snow days with e-days, which still would not help in the babysitter category but maybe could help in keeping them busy at the sitters’.
State standardized tests are exams students take to assess their schools, teachers, and what they learned in their year. Many parents and teachers deem these tests useless and see it as an unnecessary stress added to their child’s life. Students should not be taking this exam because it causes a major curriculum gaps between students, causes stress and loss of interest in school, and after almost a full year of learning, this test is supposed to determine a student 's knowledge of the year’s curriculum. Although some say this test prepares students for college, the stress and loss of interest in school caused by this test and test prep can affect student’s mental health and grades. State tests cause stress and anxiety in students, especially lower performing students because of the pressure of making sure all students, regardless of ability, reaches the same level.
Another way that late start school would affect the community is that both teachers and parents would have less free time after-school. This would be bothersome because teachers have to prepare lesson plans and parents often have to help their children with homework. Since teachers would have less after-school time and most businesses aren’t open at 8 o'clock in the morning more teachers would have to take time to off to go to appointments. This would cause substitutes to be called in and would slow down the efficiency of the classroom. Yet another way that late start school would affect the community is the ability of high schoolers to get jobs.
The effects of procrastination is that we tend to leave things behind for later then this job or task will never be done. This can effect s in life too, leaving things for later eventually we get really lazy then do these tasks really or don’t even do them at all. Procrastination is like a bad habit that never goes away, we all do this. For example if we have an assignment or project due for school we leave it to a day before or even the day of. Procrastination makes us forget about the actual due date because we have made a due date in our minds.
The new environment will have new properties and the student needs to adapt to the new places, faces, and routines. Some students share increased levels of depression and absent-mindedness within the first few weeks of the first term. “Students who are passive and mildly depressed prior to leaving home have been found to be those most likely to show raised levels of homesickness following the move to college” (Fisher, 1994). 2.3.7 Homesickness There are many first-year students who experience being homesick. Some of these reasons can be moving to a new environment, not knowing anyone, missing home, and missing family and friends.
One must challenge themselves in order to accomplish more in life, and this starts when one is young, such as choosing which school classes to take. If one is going to go into a certain career and they need to take a certain class, but they skip it to take an easier one then they are just hurting themselves even more because if they want to go into that profession then they cannot take the easy road, or they will not be
