I wonder what percentage of those students who didn’t get accepted withdrew the opportunity themselves because they couldn’t afford it once they got accepted. There can be so many reason why the school doesn’t accept 10K students a semester; by the way who wants to learn with another 1,000 students in the classroom. Beres doesn’t take the time to elaborate on different factors that come with college admission but instead attacks the College Board for no apparent reason. He has a valid claim that yes students’ needs to be given the chance, but lacks the supporting warrants he could have made. Instead of bashing the College Board about the common app he could have made a valid case by questioning the rising of college tuition which is a main factor that students aren’t
While not all teenagers do such things, many sit on their backside all day long and wait for the world to change, others are making sure that we don’t end up like future generations, fighting over why the country is in such a mess instead of doing something about it. People say that teenagers see the world as black and white, right and wrong. While adults have a more vague idea of right and wrong as they get older. Maybe the fact that we don’t have as much life experience is a good thing. We are unaware of outside dangers that teachers can’t teach in school.
Most students today know little to nothing about Vietnam thanks to the lack of photographs, as well as coverage. Some of the students Loewen had interviewed did not even know who fought in the war. A student of Loewen’s even wrote that showing the images of Vietnam during the war (specifically of the naked little girl running from the napalm attack) would completely change a student’s view of the war. However, because textbooks choose to leave out these stirring images, students still do not have the right outlook or sufficient knowledge of what happened in
RWS 200 students will find Goldwasser’s article much less persuasive after understanding how the sources she uses, like Common Core and the NEA, are taken out of context in her whirl-winding assault against educational learning, and supporting the Internet. Many rhetorical strategies are used in Goldwasser’s “What’s the Matter with Kids Today?” to persuade the audience of her credibility. The introduction bombards the reader with statistics of Common Core surveys and other figures to present a sarcastic and mocking account of Goldwasser’s opposition. The teen blogging specialist rebuts that the older generation is afraid (through ignorance) of the power of the Internet. In order to maintain her credibility, the word “we” is used to identify herself as a member of this older group.
Society, parents, and schools do not teach children the skills of physical, psychological, emotional and verbal self-defense. This is because most adults don't know how to do so. A majority of these people just put bullying aside like it is something that has to happen to everyone at one point. Almost like if you didn’t get bullied than you never really grew up. But is this right, should parents even, principals just blow bullying off like that?
One principal describes the Common Core testing as “torture” (Source F). One teacher had only 23 students opt out and at least 3 times that number in tears. The teacher herself could not even answer twenty-five percent of the questions on the exam. The tests had readability levels far beyond what was appropriate, with questions that were vague, wordy, designed for trickery–not accurately measuring if children understand the texts they are reading. They were also far too long for the students to complete.
Indeed the options 3 offer something very different than competitors. Secondly, regarding the segment target, 14 – 24 years old, it is known that those category can not pass the credit check with the current carriers due to there lack of revenue. The result is that this target market has been forgotten. Moreover, it is an age where teenagers are looking for “independence” and like to do things without parents. It is why the option 3 fit well.
Community service is something every person should experience in there lives. People see community service as boring and pointless. I have done community service many times and I agree that it is very boring but not pointless. Kids in junior high and in high school do not see the full picture. Community service affects many people around you.
18-year olds barely have any time and are under gargantuan amounts of stress, forcing them to do community service will hurt their general well being. I agree with my opponent, Community Service is a great thing if done from the heart. But, forcing careless teenagers to work around an issue they do not care about is not going to help the community rather their sloppy and negligent work may do the exact opposite. Community service is supposed to be voluntary and if a person volunteers to do community service that is all fine and well but forcing students to do something that they do not care about nor want to do will not help anyone. Community service should come from the heart, it shouldn't be forced.
The participation of the American public has been a deﬁning feature of our countries politics and the backbone of its political system. The American way of life will only be preserved if government and the general public continue to work together for the common good, not their own individual benefit. It is easy to become isolated from one another, and in doing so, the conditions for freedom can be lost. “Our national myths often exaggerate the role of the individual heroes and understate the importance of collective effort.” (Robert D Putnam, 1995) Civic engagement, as a whole, is on the decline according to Putnam. Informal activities in particular have seen a downturn.
