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.
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.
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.
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. I myself procrastinate a lot which did not lead to a great mark.
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.
If someone takes the easy road their entire life, such as taking easy classes in school, then they could get straight “A’s” and not challenge themselves, or they could take hard road and take the hardest classes that their school offers them and actually learning new things instead of things they already know. 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
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
These tests are putting too much pressure on a student, which can lead to anxiety causing them to mess up and fail or even drop out before they are given the test because they’re not good at tests and don’t want to try to get told they failed after 4years. Standardized tests are an unreliable measure of a student’s performance. Performance simply means an action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, or function. Why should I let a test tell me what I know? I feel like standardized test are more for the school then for us.
If the audience can 't relate to my writing, they will not understand my intended purpose. I will need to be sure to use facts from the article to support the ideas I present. Also, showing how age isn 't a factor while taking a class may pose a challenge. I would like my audience to understand that whether you are fresh out of high school or going back to school after 20 years, the same obstacles are in the way. No matter your age, it’s still a difficult feeling to think you are prepared to start a class and realize things are much harder than expected.
Because of the pressure it puts on the taker, many people believe that it should be completely abolished; this however is a total over reaction to the situation. Yes it is true that a very important test can cause stress, but we would not have to be taking it if it was not important. standardized testing it an essential tool for judging a student skill level. If it was removed it would allow people who are not cut out or not ready for collage to enter collage, this would cause a fault to form in the education system that could be detrimental to the future generations. Tests are a part of learning; they are used to find out if a student has retained the information that has been given to them.
Secondly, timed tests can create negative messages about the subject. Lastly, students are so focused on the time constraint that they often don’t show their full abilities. While some opposers may tell you that timed tests are great to see who knows the material and
