However, text messaging has been a major problem with students texting in class interfering with the disruption of their learning. Most teachers express how they feel about cell phones being a distraction to others, however very few students have complaints about the use of cell phones in class. Text messaging in class should be allowed by choice of the students, it can easily be discreet and the possibility of an emergency.

We were all somehow exposed to different backgrounds, as well as lifestyles. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the statement “Is College for Everyone” doesn’t imply to certain people who were raised to think otherwise.

Pharinet went on to explain how most students will find themselves working full-time jobs to help pay the expenses of college, in result their grades begins to drop. Then the student decides to drop to a part-time worker, register for less class hours to find more time to work on improving their grades.
Nicole Caffrey November 23, 2011 Mrs. Bentley Cell phone issue at Skyview High school In the halls of Skyview High school in Nampa, Idaho students are not aloud to have cell phones. During passing periods, no phone. During lunch, no phones. No phones what so ever can be used in the halls of Skyview High unless it is the beginning of school, and after school those are the only times. So they made it very clear not only to the students but everyone who steps in the halls of Skyview High that cell phone usage is two thumbs down.
School systems nowadays do not want their students using mobile devices, such as the iPad, in the classroom in fear of them cheating or being too distracted to want to learn. Another reason for keeping iPads out of the classroom is the costly price of them. According to Hedge, “Tablets can be prohibitively expensive for graduate students.

In my opinion I think I like all year around in school. If kids really look at it, we get alota days out for a break. Many schools also need to come on there education because the drop out rate may come back up if it already haven’t. Many schools say they do many things to help students and they really care about the students, blah blah blah, some schools are just all talk.

Katie Gathman Professor Star College Comp 16 October 2013 Pro Co-Mingling Legislation Apart of the typical every day college experience would involve the opposite sex. Usually having mingled classes with both male and female is a good part of the college experience since it gives the opportunity to expand a persons social circle and gives the chance to intermingle with the opposite sex. Some students have come from all boy and all girl high schools, which they may not of experienced the opportunity to socialize and talk with the opposite sex.

So I would lie to my parents saying that I am done with work. I also used to do my homework late at night or at school the day it's do like other students. Other times I would have nothing to do for homework so I would say that I'll get tomorrows done today one day before it is due.

It has helped me with the debt that I had prior to returning to school. This started off being the main reason why I decided to return to school but I saw the bigger picture and that was me getting a college degree and making a better life my children. So for me, it is all worth it in the end. While trying to pursue my degree, I know there will be many obstacles in the way such as unsupportive peers and being able to maintain good grades. Some of the strategies are to make sure I study all material as much as I can and turn all assignments in a timely manner.
