Year-round schooling is a better system than traditional because it’s better for students learning, it keeps kids involved and engaged, and, as much as this might surprise you, it doesn’t mean less vacation time. So on that first day back, your probably freaking out. Your thinking, “I DON’T REMEMBER THIS!! HOW CAN A TEACHER EXPECT ME TO REMEMBER THIS STUFF AFTER A WHOLE SUMMER! !” They shouldn’t.
When students return to school after a summer break, there is often a long time period of adjustment. Opponents may also say that the use of multi-tracking doesn’t work and that it wouldn’t bring any funds when the schools accommodate more students than regular schools. Well this general idea is considered false in many ways. One way is that multi-tracking does save money for the schools when it allows schools to enroll more students than what their
Lauren Benzing Ms. Nielsen English 9 6 November 2009 Year-Round Schooling: A Beneficial Opportunity Students, do you often feel bored at the end of summer? Do you hate forgetting material you have previously learned? Teachers, isn't it frustrating to have to waste precious class time re-teaching and reviewing things that students have already learned, but forgot? Year-round school would be a simple, yet beneficial solution to these problems. For many reasons, a year-round school schedule would be a great leap forward for the education systems of America, which are lacking compared to European and Asian ones (Holland).
In the small number of school that are already year round we can see the good result that they have in their state assessment tests where 70 percent of them pass, higher than the school that not participates in this program. One of the reasons is that teacher keeps working slowly and directly with every academic problem more time of the year and they do not interrupt learner’s process. While in traditional calendar they have long time disconnect to school skill and teacher spend six week reviewing the previous year’s lesson when they back to
Around 6 hours. Look at these hours and compare then to our school day. We have 7 hours of school, and at the very most 1 or 2 hours of homework. How can we say they are lazy when they don’t even have to time to be lazy? They run around and work from dawn until dusk, doing school work for 19 hours straight.
President Obama agrees with it. Experts say that adding more hours to school hours will boost student’s achievements. In conclusion, experts think kids should have longer school hours and think that kids would get better grades. The president agrees with it, but majority of kids don’t. First of all, they are not even sure if this will result in better grades.
Implementing School Uniforms Implementing school uniforms will increase academic performance and reduce behavioral problems. While this is a temporary solution to the permanent problem of getting students to strive for achievement, the implementation of school uniform policies, especially at this pivotal point in time in our countries future, is one way we could help young people to realize their potential thru improving the over all quality of education in our country. While students and parents face many daily struggles that distract them from more important things, financial issues can be sited as one of the biggest struggles facing families and individuals these days. School uniforms provide a low cost alternative to expensive designer clothing. Students whose parents can’t afford expensive clothing can be spared the harsh words and jeers from their peers, allowing them to blend in instead of being singled out as poverty stricken or less fortunate then others, thus giving all the students the outward appearance of equals.
If students would start to learn a foreign language in elementary school they will be so little that they will not realize that they actually have to do work, and it is also easier for children at a low age to learn to speak different languages. I believe that students should be required to take a second language all throughout elementary school, junior high school, and high school because their job opportunity will be greater, it exposes young people to new cultures, and it enhances the academic skills of students. Pursuing this further, I believe that if one is fluent in more than just one language, one has a greater opportunity to be chosen as an employer of a successful company. It is definitely a plus if one knows a foreign language. Companies do not just look at the grades one had, graduating from college, they also look at other skills like their ability to communicate with others and if one is fluent in more than one language.
Extending the school day may do more harm than good. Secondly, a major reason why the school day should not be extended two hours for students to get help on their homework is simply because of the fact that they do not all need it. Many kids like to work at their own pace and should have the option of getting help or not. Kids that need help go to after school tutorial, but the school should not enforce that all students must stay longer. Another reason to support this idea is because students do not always need two hours to do their homework.
Therefore, if our family places a great deal of emphasis on education and its importance, we focus on getting good grades more than we focus on our athletic or artistic abilities, and may include intelligent as an attribute when describing ourselves to other people. Our self-concept would probably be focused on studious tendencies and smarts. When we don’t excel in the area of education, we may try to hide our grades and avoid talking about schooling with others because we feel bad about this. This would create low self-esteem. On the other hand, if our parents and siblings tell us that grades don’t matter as long as we try our very best, we may not have any problems telling others we failed a test when we studied for hours preparing for it.
