The changing from the normal calendar year (June - March) to the new calendar year (August - May) is still a big question of other schools. As stated on Republic Act no. 7797, school calendar must be a maximum of 220 class days, and the school year should start on the first Monday of June but not later than the last day of August.Top universities like Ateneo De Manila University, University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines shifted their academic year yet there are still debates concerning the shifting of the new academic year. As discussed on an infographic (Salano, 2014), there are some pros and cons that should be considered on applying the new academic calendar as listed below: Pros:
For the past decade or more there has been one topic that has been a hot button of conversations for student-athletes. Many people think that it is whether they should stay and get their degree or go professional early, but it’s not but rather should student athletes be paid. This topic has brought up many spirited and heated debates on the topic. There are multiple reasons why student-athletes should and shouldn’t be paid. I will provide reasons why they should and shouldn’t and then I will give my answer.
These tests used to not determine someone's future, but for every year that goes by, these standardized tests keep getting more difficult for the average student to take. It is defining who students are and that is not what these tests should be scored on. The idea of these tests are being made to select students in a faster, easier scoring area. Thousands of students take these tests every year to determine what college or university they will go to, and for public schools, it determines whether or not they will pass their grade they have been in. These standardized testing like the SAT or ACT, make it easier to judge a student.
Why Students Shouldn’t Have to Wear School Uniforms Regan Narine couldn't have been more eager to get through his first day of 3rd grade at Athlos Leadership Academy- “I was excited to meet my teacher, get new friends but instead I was sent home.” He and his little brother Rayshawn were pulled from class in the morning for not wearing the school logo on their shirts. US schools with a minority student population of 50% or more are four times as likely to require uniforms than schools with a minority population of 20%-49% and 24 times more likely than schools with minority populations of 5%-19% (US Department). Although school uniforms are thought to help students fit in, actually it denies their first amendment of the US Constitution stating
In defense of censorship, parents cry out “Think of the children!” and religious organizations clamor “That’s not what the Bible said!” There are so many instances of this occurrence that it’s almost like clockwork in its unchanging regularity, as made evident throughout “Light Out, Huck.” In Kakutani’s piece, she lists several examples of this, but high school teacher, John Foley, and his comments from 2009 stand out in particular: “The time has arrived to update the literature we use in high school classrooms...novels that use the ‘N-word’ repeatedly need to go.” An author’s employment of mature elements to construct a realistic backdrop in order to make the narrative more realistic and identifiable to the reader is misconstrued by Foley and many other naysayers of anti-censorship as the author encouraging vulgar behavior. It’s absurd to think a story set in the deep South in the 19th century won’t have a couple racial slurs sprinkled here and there, similar to believing a story set in the modern world won’t have incessant references to the Internet or social media. If anything, one should think of an author’s story as a jigsaw puzzle – bits like curse words and sex scenes aren’t the big picture the puzzle is meant
In his Essay “Are too many people going to college,” first published in a 2008 issue of AEI, Charles Murray explores many insights onto the topic of furthering education as well as exploring various other options to pursue after high school. Who exactly would think that too many people are going to college? Well with more and more students flooding campuses at the end of every school year and less and less going into trade schools, a shift in the job market is just beginning to be seen on the horizon. Charles Murray’s essay “Are too many people going to college” shows that not only are there other avenues to pursue a potential life long career, but that much of the time pursuing these avenues may offer better results for some wanting to go to college. Throughout the essay, Charles Murray stresses the idea that college is the wonderland of finding oneself and to find the career that one would want to follow for the rest of their lives.
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
Traditional school versus Year round school The idea of year round school is starting to be more the topic of discussion. Many people are for the idea of year round education and many are against it. “If our country began on a year around schedule, it would have seemed bizarre to propose the summer- off schedule as a superior way to educate students” says Principle Hazel Colebank. Although some may feel year round school is great for bettering education, changing what’s considered normal could cause more harm than good. Year round school should not be used in today’s school, because it threatens family plans, teacher and student burnouts, and may become costly.
For many years, a question has been ask trillions of times throughout the homes of families.What are you going to do after High School? Everyday you hear many different answers and bunch of different lectures of what you should and what shouldn’t you do. Having many honorable mentions such as Steve Jobs, Dave Thomas, or Kevin Rose shows that college after high school is not the only option. Four-Year Universities are not practical choice for most Americans students after High School because of the lack of preparation for a college education,Student are pressured that having a college degree is the only way to maintaining a stable financial life , and A college degree doesn 't pay off for years . Recent numbers revealed a glaring gap in the nation 's education system: A high school diploma, no matter how recently earned, doesn 't guarantee that students are prepared for college courses.
The Monday was allocated to setting up the school week ahead, and setting the task: this came across as an intense and structured environment. If the researcher was to visit on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, however, it is likely that the weekly structure would dictate them to reach the conclusion that “the teacher had played no role in organising what was to be learned and did not evaluate it.” (Hammersley 2000) The cyclical structure of the school weeks being somewhat partially observed by some researchers (and not fully immersing themselves) causes ambiguity and misconception, therefore. Most anthropological academics highlight the need to live with their study group for a year or longer, and acknowledge that the primary research method of
In my opinion, there are several valid reasons for this difference and it takes several years of dedication and everyone’s enormous effort to get rid of these differences. First of all, the division of states in the underdeveloped countries based on the caste, religion, and political system is why these countries lag behind. Should there be a centralized government just as in the industrialized nations, there would be more development and progress. Secondly, education is not standardized in the underdeveloped nations and schools admit students based on their level of wealth. The government provides schooling until high school in some of the underdeveloped nations, but the educational standard is way lower than the school the children from richer families attend.
Delaware Military Academy was the first JROTC high school. Over the years the program has expanded to thousands of schools across the country, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t had it’s fair share of controversy. Committees like American Friends Service, Veterans For Peace, and War Resisters League have all been actively against JROTC and militarism in schools. From 1999 through 2008 anti-militarism groups have found cases of high cost, low quality curriculum, abuse from instructors, and students forced to join the program without parental consent. The most recent case was in May of 2008, JROTC was “found” to have violated the United Nations Sponsored Convention on the rights of the child by targeting students
The nation has moved toward Common Core Standards, although not all of the States has not adopted the Common Core Standards. By 2009, Common Core Standards, which stated that “these educational standards are for kindergarten through twelfth grade in English language arts and mathematics to ensure that students graduate from high school prepared to enter a two or four-year college programs and be able to use the skills in the workforce. In the early 2000s, every state had developed and adopted its learning standards, which specify what students in grades 3-8 and high school should be able to do when those students reach each grade level. The Common Core Standards are standards that define what students should be able to understand and be able
As a Thomas Nelson Community College student, I need to get my degree as soon as everyone else does, even though college is difficult. College is difficult. Because I am a first semester student, I know that I am facing many challenges. One of the challenges is making a schedule because classes have different days and different times. Creating a schedule becomes even more difficult if students have a job or children to take care of.
I believe this because if my neighbors who are both males were to marry each other, why or how does that influence or affect my life. People today are so concerned with what one another are doing and often let that bother us in a negative way instead of going through our daily lives concerns about ourselves. We had an assignment earlier in the semester that said what are some laws that should be reevaluated every 20 years and I believe something like this should be looked at quite frequently. With new generations being born every 10 years, new ideas and ways of thinking will evolve and the next movement will rise, but the debate of who should marry who will never graduate or become
