All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.
In “Doesn’t Anybody get a C Anymore”.by Phil Primack students do not want to accept anything less than a B+. It’s a fact that students do not have to try as hard to get a pastable grade. “That because many professor fear that tough grading will trigger poor students evaluations”(Phil Primack).
Scholarships and financial aid are given to people who qualify; however, these aids do not pose solutions to the problem. Equally important, some scholarships are based on race and social factors, however, these do not put a barrier or separate one group from having different financial challenges than the others. As prices continue to rise year to year, the majority of college students are faced with no solutions to the universally wretched financial
As I mentioned earlier, deviance is violating social norms or going against what society thinks is “normal”. With positive deviance, a person uses their uniqueness, or the uniqueness of something else for the better. An example of a positive deviant would be starting the technology company, Apple. The one of the founders of this company was a college drop-out, they were seen as failures who would never amount to anything despite their efforts. Jobs frequently misbehaved in school, he claimed that school was just too boring for him to pay attention.
Because of society’s lenient standards, higher education is becoming progressively irrelevant to students. Although not everyone attends college, having a higher education will better prepare one for corporate America, create a well-rounded individual, and increase one’s chances of getting a lucrative job
It is true that those with more developed education have better paying jobs, however, it does not indicate that graduating from school will promise a satisfactory life with a stable career. With the amount of competition and the ever growing population, it is extremely difficult to find a suitable job and get hired. Although it is seldom mentioned, the heavy loans from the colleges and universities are not that easily lifted. If a student finishes his or her studies and is having troubles acquiring a profession, not only are they jobless, they have a loan waiting to pay off. In conclusion, graduating is a double edged sword and sometimes, the risks aren’t worth
The arts have been unfairly underestimated for quite some time through recent history. Many would argue that children don 't need it and that it 's a waste of time for adults. Few have a gift of talent in this area, with its rarity the decision to make art no longer a career pathway in school systems seemed to be not so hard to make for the officials of the school systems. However by taking away the arts as a career pathway it creates more problems than it solves. Three major problems taking away the arts creates is: lowered test scores, keeps students from pursuing careers they were made for, and can lead to a very bleak culture for our society.
What advice would you give a school in creating an exceptional intervention model that could fill those gaps? Within my local school system, I see a large amount of neglect. I see a system that allows students to be pushed through a grade without fully understanding the academics they were to be taught. I feel more intervention and less overlooking, would play well in having a successful graduate rate. It is not the number of students who graduate from the high school levels that matters in the student’s futures.
‘Twelve percent of the mail carriers in the United States today have college degrees,’” (Clemmit). Many Americans settle for “high school jobs” because they are unable to find a job that requires the degree that they earned. College graduates tend to receive a higher pay, and are more likely to be hired than someone without a degree, but they are not meeting their full potential. College degrees are not “necessary”, but they can be beneficial when trying to find a job. Many Americans succeed and do just fine without a college
When considering the choice of whether or not students should get paid for good grades, the choice should definitely be no, students shouldn’t get paid for grades. One reason being that students should want to learn without always thinking they’re going to get money. Another reason is that students are remaining focused on money and not education when it should be the other way around. Though, there are many reasons as to why children shouldn’t get paid for grades. If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run.
