Censorship in History: Non-Beneficial Environment for Students Historical truths are at stake. States and schools are murdering U.S. history by either changing it in textbooks or not teaching it all. They’re making it disappear. Censorship of history textbooks in the U.S hides important details and truths from the students. It also gives students false impressions of U.S. history.
If students know that if they cheat they will get more than just a slap on the hand they will be less likely to do it. Showing that a student who cheats gets punished sets fear into the other students at the school. As well as setting an example, punishing students for cheating serves justice. If a student cheats and copies someone's intelligence and passes it off as her own she needs to be punished. Source C states “With a peer-enforced honor code, the likelihood of being cause depends on the students tolerance for cheating” and if a student knows that cheating is wrong and punishable and she could get in trouble from not telling, she will tell on the cheater.
Plagiarism is considered a form of cheating. The punishment has changed from a zero grade to expulsion. A lot of students who cheat, are only fooling themselves. Now, in college, cheating will place an academic warning on your official transcript, making it visible to other institutions. I am going to come clean, about cheating in the far past.
According to codes 4.01/4.04/4.07 confidentiality, privacy and personal information pertaining to participants should be maintained and used for research purposes (American Psychological Association, 2002). There were incidents which took place contributing to the professor violation of the confidentiality codes. One incident was when the professor belittled Johnny about his grade and performance in the class. Another incident is telling students if he or she does not complete the test they will receive an F in the course. This is a violation of code 8.06 because the nature of the experiment was not clarified beforehand the professor waited until after the students begin rebelling to make a bargain for their grade.
This may seem fine, but as said above, this causes curriculum gaps between students which can be harmful as it removes stress relieving classes from children’s schedules. State tests, although is not the only factor, evaluates school districts. Other factors include graduation and attendance. Even though it is not the only factor, it is one of them, which may cause extra pressure and stress on both students and teachers. The pressure on all students, regardless of ability, to reach a certain level, can be damaging, especially because of many students, as high as 60% in some states, failed to reach this
Students who are only trying to help others are being punished because they explain the work the way they understand it. The code is so strict that it gives no room for exceptions, which can ruin a student 's educational career if on a prime scale. In a survey of honor codes, 4 out of 7 did not have easy access to the honor code. In some cases It was hard to find on the homepage (Wade). If the schools expect the students to follow the honor code shouldn’t they have an easy access to it?
The main opposition to cheat in school is immoral, promoted the bad habits, affect self-esteem by implementing a unearned rewards. These concerns are even remotely, because without considering the environment. Children are often rounded up and placed in an organization; they are a hierarchy, from the bottom of the place. Like the hostages, they are captive, even if they are not of the body. They deprived of any power in their own life, including the ability to pursue their own interests, and by a barrage of test results for each
Technologies in school are causing problems for students instead more than benefiting them? Schools, technologies, and students are three components that causing many educators and writers to develop many argumentative articles about the effect of technology on students in school. These articles include an article from The Washington Post, “The problem with technology in schools”, an article from Teach Thought We Grow Teachers, “5 Problems With Technology In Classrooms”, another article from, “The Mercury News”, and a political cartoon posted by Joe N, 11th May 2014, “Technology in the Classroom”. Technologies are not helping students in school since it causes distraction, isolation, and it hurts their critical thinking and their ability to do homework. So the best option is to have school policies over technologies that was not school related and cut down on spending unnecessary time on technologies in classrooms unless needed.
Depending on how desperate a teacher is for good test scores, inappropriate preparations can be made before testing, sometimes even to the point of cheating. While having standards and a uniform teaching model, high -stakes testing is generally detrimental to the education of America. The importance of these tests has become the be-all and end-all of high school. The accountability of the testing will follow the student throughout his or her educational life. Despite being held in such high regard, the high-stakes testing effects are far from the desired and predicted
Why the SAT and ACT Tests Should Be Banned Every junior’s worst nightmare, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT ) and American College Testing (ACT). It’s such a stressful test where you have to cram everything you have learned throughout middle and high school into one standardized test to determine your college entrance. Many students do not perform well on standardized test which pertains only of general knowledge which is unfair to many students. The students should not be penalized for poor test taking skills, stress and anxiety which may cause them to score low. College admissions should not be determined mostly by a test that does not measure a student’s potential and work ethic.
