Should Schools Have Dress Code? In 21st century as schools grow and education starts to take on the race to go back in its “Golden Age”, yet the students in public high schools face many problems that are caused only by not having dress code in school. Such as bulling (conflict), computation, and distraction from school. Which makes the students fall behind from the education standers required by some of the most complicated colleges threw out the world. Also according from studies done by New York University of Education Department it shows that United States education system fails to stay up to standers compare to what the Easter world makes for their high Schools students.
Being a Successful High School Student To become a successful high school student there are four main aspects you must be able to achieve; the first one is to cope with barriers and challenges that interfere with lessons and homework. Technology including, cell phones, computers, and ipods are main barriers that distract students from doing schoolwork. Another challenge some students have is a lack of focus or a lack of teacher or administrative support. Some students have poor grade twelve role models or are under peer pressure, this causes learning barriers. People and things that help along your high school years are resources and allies.
High school students, especially those in grade nine, are still developing and battling with inner conflicts of who they are and amongst this ongoing struggle is the journey to discover themselves. Since teenage years are the ideal time to define themselves as individuals, students look everywhere for some form of guidance to lead them to the ultimate realization of who they are. High school is not only an institution for knowledge but also a guide to lead students down a path that is generally seen as successful. However, when students make the decision, whatever their reason may be, to drop out of high school they are rejecting the illuminating guidance of high school and without this guidance students look elsewhere for any sort of navigation. When these former students have tried the conventional methods of success and discovered that the system has failed them, they may attempt methods outside of the system.
Based upon social class and political power in public policy, the United States has proven to be a nation where the economy, society, and political system do not function in the same way for all of its citizens, and everybody works for the benefit of the few, and against the interest of the many. Professors Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson argued in their book, “Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer – and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class” (2010), that changing tax rates has been a major factor underlying growing inequality. They claim that the globalization and technological changes are not the causes of economic struggles of the middle and working classes in the United States. Instead they blame a long series of policy changes in government that significantly favored the very rich since the late 1970s. Those changes were the result of, well-financed and well-organized efforts by the corporate sector to push government policies to lean in favor of the very wealthy.
Throughout the entire country, high school students are giving up everything that makes them teenagers to either please their parents or to feel they have accomplished something. Can anyone make the statement, “grades are everything, nothing else in the world matters.” This pompous statement is unjust and unfair. Why should every kid in the world give up what they want, what they desire to do, just so they can acclaim some “glory” in having good grades. Good grades should not mean everything in high school. The most intelligent child could have the worst grades, does that make the child stupid?
The main purpose of Highschool is to educate people, and to teach them the skills they will need to be successful in their careers and in everyday life. Grades are used to show how well, or how weak a student is doing in a particular subject. However, do grades help or hurt the student? Now days, some professors do not give students exams during the semester. Basically, students get graded on how well they do on the final exam.
Even though studying is the best way to get good grades, students cheat because feel they have to be straight A students because they are pressured by their parents to do well and they will not excel without above average grades. Academic dishonesty is something that is frowned on by all academic institutes no matter where you enroll. Cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, and deception of any kind are risking your entire school career and could jeopardize your entire working career. So why do so many students willingly participate in this practice? Some would stay it is because students do not want to study and just find it much easier to just purchase a essay online or to park their seat next to the “nerd” in the class to ensure that you ace every pop quiz.
The idea of brand values decreasing in coming into the light, but it is a slow process. At first, consumers spent more money for big brand products, leaving the smaller brands to almost disappear; but now, consumers are not as loyal to brands. Thus saying, Surowiecki’s uses this essay to make the reader curious why brands are in decline. The first way Surowiecki’s article makes the reader curious is by incorporating facts and figures. When he states, “nearly half of those who described themselves as highly loyal to a brand were no longer loyal a year later” (p.1), he wants the reader to relate to this study.
High school is critical for teenagers, and should bridge the gap maturity between adolescents and adults. However, high schools today are serving more as confinement zones, where parents just leave their kids five days a week and assume development takes place. Through moderations to the grading policies and learning style, high schools will provide students with not only the education needed to succeed but also the attitude to want to continue learning. There is too much emphasis being placed on grades in American high schools. With our increasingly competitive society, students are pushed to make the best grades that they can in the toughest classes that they can take so that they’ll be considered at a prestigious university.
The atmosphere of classrooms in high school differs from the classrooms in college. Students are much more mature in college, and take their studies more serious. For example, when it comes to exams or assignments; some high school students don’t take such things seriously while other high school students do. Most college students are up to date with their assignments and take time to study for important exams. Even though high school teachers are strict, this doesn’t seem to change how seriously high school students take their assignments.
