Also, the endless hours on the field which drains even the best students’ mentally and physically. Petrie says that the collegiate system encourages athletes to settle for lower grades and incomplete programs. Petrie’s Famous quote of the paper is, “The system uses and then discards after the final buzzer.” Which means the college doesn’t care personally for the student and just wants the athletic program to thrive.
Why gym class (P.E.) should, and shouldn’t be counted against your GPA. Physical education is required by almost every school in the country, and the grades are counted against the students G.P.A. This causes a problem for some students that are physically unfit, but need to keep up a good grade to maintain a good G.P.A. An easy solution for this would be to take off gym as a class that counts against a students G.P.A, but many schools and universities do not agree to this.
There are thousands of teaching styles professors and teachers use. Each person is different and therefore has their own idea of what their class will respond to and learn from. In college, teachers often times focus on their strengths, whether it be lecturing or using personal experience. While high school the majority of the learning was very scripted, impersonal, and bland. Many students fell in love with subject in college that they may have disliked in high school.
Student athlete roles have always been a problem. Some people say these athletes shouldn’t even be in school because their grades aren’t high enough. Others see a more sensitive view of the topic. I experienced this topic first hand from middle school though high school and for about a week of college. I believe it really is a problem.
Seems kind of pointless, most athletes don't go pro after college, so I why not get the full educational experience? Getting special treatment in school just because you’re an athlete is not fair. College is way to difficult for people to get special treatment just because of a person’s special talent. How about for students who are honor students? All their hard work doesn’t mean anything?
To whom it may concern, As I ponder the academic future of my child, I sit down and think of my academic past. I attended Hatch Middle School when I was a teenager. I didn’t like it, at all. I was bullied for no reason. I was always worried about being beaten because of my ethnic background.
But is this right, should parents even, principals just blow bullying off like that? Maybe we've seen a bigger kid shoving a smaller kid around, or a girl with less money shunned because her clothes aren't nice enough or she doesn't live in the right neighborhood. Both situations involve bullying, and it's a serious problem in elementary and middle schools nationwide. Too often, we don't take bullying seriously. Young people who are bullied are more likely to skip school or completely drop out.
As well as “The making new friends” challenge. I mean why bother making new friends if you are going to lose them each year? But in the other hand, you should expect (and accept) the diversity of people. What to expect from college is not really something to specific. For example, many of us weren’t really use to studying during high school, mainly because it was so unchallenging.
This article basically says that high school sports are not killing the academics but the students/athletics are killing it themselves. It explains how school sponsored sport programs should be seriously be thought about being cut off. Some people believe that sports are far more firmly fixed in American high school than in other countries but the test scores finds no support. Ripley bring up that athletic coaches are typically lousy classroom teachers. However, athletic coaches gain additional opportunity for communication by helping the student succeed.
Education: The process in which an individual gains pointless knowledge for the opportunity to get wealthy. America's education system is awful at properly educating their students. The type of education that is taught in high school is only to prepare you for what you're actually going to learn in college. A lot of the courses being offered at high schools are impractical in our daily lives, such as trigonometry, Hawaiian history and British literature. These courses are useless unless you're going to major in one of those subjects, but most of us aren't.
