High School Dropouts Every year about 1.2 million students drop out of high school. In other words, that is about one fourth of every freshman class failing to graduate! The students really misunderstand the importance that continuing to learn is one of the most important aspects in life. Their regard for high school has diminished as the times change, and the students do not care about a good education and what it can lead to. High school dropouts affect not only themselves, but many people around them.
Although the share of black children in segregated schools had dropped to 62.9 percent by the early 1980s, the subsequent lack of commitment by the federal government and multiple Supreme Court decisions antagonistic to school desegregation have led to a reversal," notes EPI. Why does that matter? "Promoting school integration is important because — now as a half century ago — segregated schools are unequal schools," the report adds. "The more non-white students a school has the fewer resources it has. A 10 percent-point increase in the share of non-white students in a school is associated with a $75 decrease in per student spending."
When it comes to student misbehavior, most schools have long practiced a basic system of crime and punishment, isolating the perceived “offender” through detention or suspension. Although when giving students suspension it does give them time to reflect, school suspension is not a good punishment because, when students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct, when students go to in-school suspension they do not receive the day’s class work, work is completed incorrectly, and/or students use time to sleep, and all in all, the students do not get the correct help they need to overcome the problem whereas if the student was treated with a system called restorative justice, the student could learn to not go through the same situation. When students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct. Think of this for example, Thomas is suspended and taken out of school for a couple of days,
In the long run, does this provide solution to the grievances presented? No is the best answer for that question. Most innocent students who even don’t participate in the violence suffer a lot. They pay for huge damages, their time is wasted, and some of them end of jailed while other die. It’s so much unfortunate that most students suffer and pay a lot of money yet they don’t participate in school violence.
Psychologically, bullying causes harm by increasing the dropout rates from middle school.This suggests that students bullied at the schools with more reported bullying have dropped out, harming the kid’s knowledge. It also provides that the schools with less reported bullying also had kids who dropped out of school, which are most probably the bullied kids. This is because the school still has kids that are bullied and they also have kids that drop
The thirteenth year of high school is similar to the door. Senior year has often been known as the “lost year” of high school. Parents are constantly concerned about their children’s “senioritis”. Basically it is stereotyped that seniors in high school become lazy and stop doing their work and going to class. If the students are not putting the work into the senior year, parents worry that they do not get anything useful out of this schooling.
One of the child’s responsibilities is to study but working at the same time would not be a good contribution to a child’s life. Study Burnout. Study Burnout is an example of a physical and emotional exhaustion, which is experienced by most students, an example of this is a person who is cramming and he/she doesn’t have the idea of what would he/she do. According to Matti, K. , Matti, M., (2011), students suffering Study-Related-Burnout fail to have self-confidence in coping with the school environment. Study-related-burnout greatly contributes to student’s behavior towards school.
After-effects of such unethical behaviour: Most of all, the students themselves are the victims of this kind of unethical behaviour in school. Students who do not bother to attend their class are likely to get low grades, so they are the one who will be effected the most. For instance, when a student does not frequently attend classes he/she will not learn what others have learnt and even if they get the notes from their classmates, it is very much likely that they would miss on many things that was discussed in the class. I have, as many people have, observed that many times student attend classes only for marking their attendance. In this case perhaps teachers and lecturers should act more strictly, but of course no one can force people into sitting in a classroom if they do not wish to stay.
Other than that, there also need for generate effective solution and then try to resolve the existing problem. A major problem faced by school is how to effectively deal with absenteeism and truancy (DeSocio et al.,2007).When a student has not attended school for a long-time period or always skipped classes, they will missed the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge.According to (Schmidt,1983), absenteeism affects the students’ ability to get high scores in examinations which can cause the decreasing of grades or the student may fail and will cause him or her to repeat the same year level. The problem of absenteeism should be taken seriously because its can directly affect student’s performance and give impact to the economy to be retarded.It is because student’s are country assets.The country’s future is depend on these human capitals. High quality human capital definitely can boost country level to a higher level in terms of
Every educational institution put effort and support to help all students succeed. However, rates of academic failure and dropped out are problems not just on the part of the school but also for many college students who are in the adjustment period (Cherif, A. et al., 2013). Some students are able to overcome academic failure and successfully completed their college course. But for others, failure can be the end of their tertiary education or take other option which is enrolling in other institutions. In the enrollment statistics of La Salle University-Ozamiz City from 2011 to 2015, an average of 42% among 1st year enrollees did not enroll in the following year.
