There are pros and cons to states that decided to experiment raising the age. Every individual has the right to make their own choices. It shouldn't be the governments decision to decide if a child is to drop out or not. Raising the drop out age has had equally bad results as to good results. Students might want to drop out because they are struggling in school, getting bullied, have a health issue, have personal family problems, or just have a planned out future that doesn't require a high school diploma.
Now its like you cant get me to shut up. But high school for me couldnt be over fast enough. I didnt really like it. I like my teachers and some of my classes but as a school itself, I dont care for it. During my sophmore and junior year we had practice ACT and PSAT.
In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack. When a student doesn’t want to do the assigned work when given the time, and then they realize they cannot go outside and play with their friends until its complete they will just scribble down something. If the grade is group based then that student is relying on the rest of the group to get positive credit for something he or she has not done, this only teaches students to be
But the soda or coffee makes you crash later. Plus, when students get so stressed out trying to get good grades by doing homework, the stress can get them sick .And all of this could have been avoided m causing less stress if we only didn’t have the homework. And my last point is, homework takes up way too much time. My math assignments alone take at least an hour. And then I still have to work on any assignments I might have in English or science.
How would parents feel if they knew their child was advanced through school without properly knowing the material they would need to succeed in life? In the year of 2001 George Bush enacted the No Child Left Behind law. This law makes it so every child in a school is included. This is a good law, but what happens to the children who don’t learn as fast as their peers. Not a lot of people realize that children are passed to the next grade level no matter how they are doing academic wise only socially.
In High Schools around the United States scores are getting worse and worse and it’s due to unmotivated teachers who don’t care about the integrity of teaching anymore because it all seems pointless in this current time. You could make a lot more points about High School and its flaws but these ones are the biggest ones that need addressing. From High School to College, a lot of things change. In College you pick your classes, your times, basically everything. You have freedom to do what you like and aren’t held back by counselors and certain start times.
They want a change in the education system so that children can prosper and be able to boost our declining economy. Children have always dreaded going to school because of boring classes and monotone teachers, but children are not only noticing this but so are influential adults. Robinson describes the school system as a factory forming students into what we want and banishing out the ones that do not reform into the model student. Moore agrees that the school system is suppressive when he says, “As soon as I entered high school-the public school system…I was walking the halls of a two-thousand-plus –inmate holding pen” (134). Moore felt trapped and earlier revealed that he dropped out of school sophomore year because he disliked school from first grade.
In fact, I even waited until the last minute to write this speech. I am here however to convince you that this is not necessarily a negative thing. In fact, procrastination is a very common habit among students and people in general, and, for those people who do not procrastinate; it often has some positive effects. I believe that procrastination has, sad to say, developed a negative connotation over the years. Too often it’s associated with stereotypical slackers, who are too lazy to do the work before the last minute.
Students are sometimes academically unprepared to finish their college education. High school students are graduating their senior year not knowing what they want to do with their lives or what to expect about college life. Some schools do not offer college education support which may help the student realize their academic skills. Consequently, students make the wrong choice of major and they get burned out from studying and they decide to drop out. Some students graduate high school and want a break from studying, or essentially they want to party.
I have been incredibly bored by school since day one. We use to read aloud as a class in elementary school and I would get bored and annoyed at the verbal stumbling of my class mates and would read ahead silently. Inevitably, I would get in trouble for not paying attention when it came my time to read. Well of course I wasn't paying attention! I didn't like to listen to these mouth breathers shout at me on the playground and I sure as hell didn't want to hear them struggle over two syllable words in class.
