Landon Stewart Mrs. Luker Government A4 10/23/12 Cons of School Uniforms There are many schools in the U.S. that require their students to wear uniforms, and there are more that don't. I believe that school uniforms should not be required for a few reasons. Uniforms take away from a person's individual identity and freedom to express himself or herself. They can be costly to people depending on a family’s financial status. School uniforms can also be a very uncomfortable fashion that students would not take a liking to.
Therefore it is strange that they are making informed choice. The concerns raise as the more children will not receive the vaccines the bigger chances of breakdown in ''herd immunity'' as the hypothesis says. In some cases people are resistant to new ideas because it depends what they are representing. In this case many parents believe that vaccination put their children at bigger risk than not having them. There are some statistics that WHO has published showing that children under 2 years old not necessary ''develop immunity following vaccination''.
Some children may ‘play up’ in response to the stress of the life change. They may regress and develop less mature behaviour such as being unable to dress themselves or use the toilet. School age children tend to adjust to a new baby easier than younger children do. However, they may worry about where they will fit in when the new baby arrives. They may feel jealous of the attention the new baby is getting.
Some parents ignore to teach their children when they were young. It cause many children don’t care their behavior and they will get the wrong worldview. I like this book because that is a good advice for children and parents, it can help parents teach their children keep a good behavior when they were young. How to listening to the other people, that is a serious problem for children, especially for parents. Now, more and more children don’t like to listen to the other people.
Peer pressure is so common in schools from middle school all the way to junior high. If parents aren’t able to help the next generation our future who will also be responsible for our future generations shouldn’t we give them a professional environment where they can actually learn how to be safe and handle the emotions and new feelings they get from puberty. Parents will argue against their sons or daughters to go take sex education. Fear is common that sex education will be a gate way to believing sex is ok. Sex education however provides different methods to prevent having STD’s or giving birth which happens without a basis of how to use protection.
Did you know that “There is no conclusive data to show that school uniforms solve any of the problems they were created to solve”? (“Point: The High Cost of School Uniforms”). Wearing uniforms is not required in all PA public schools, but in some schools it is. Many people (mainly parents) believe it to be that no PA public school should be required to wear uniforms. Others should agree as well.
The first reason the grading policy should not be changed is students/parents would not know their exact grade. For instance, if a parent wants to know how their child is doing in school, they wouldn’t know because the new grading system doesn’t give enough insight (doesn’t break grade down). Also due to the fact that more students pass than fail,
Does standardized testing improve education in public schools? Terrie Lynn Bittner the author of Homeschoolers Should Not Take Standardized Test would argue that it has not been proven that these tests help public school students. The author states that testing is nothing more than routine memorization and not true learning. So, homeschoolers shouldn’t have to take standardized tests because the parents do not need testing to see their children’s progress. With homeschooling, the parents are the ones teaching their children, so they know their progress, strengths and weaknesses.
Parents need to be able to train children at a young to pay attention and respond functionally to reflect prior training. John Rosemond believes that researchers propose to let parents off the hook when it comes to evaluating the teenager’s behavior. In contrast to most research we find that teenagers that are self-dramatic, disrespectful and lacking in empathy which are the product of what the study says they are not. Consistent research finds that the effect of high self-esteem is incompatible with empathy and respect for others (Rosemond 2013). We can find in this article many different psychological terms including: hypothesis, behavior, temperament, self-esteem, authoritative parenting, authoritarian parenting, permissive parenting, neglectful parenting, social cognition, empathy, hormones, frontal lobe, genes and stereotyping.
One of the arguments of co-education is the idea that it provides too many distractions for students. Several scholars have argued that these distractions have led to less attention on school work and class participation, due to girls and boys trying to impress each other. Furthermore, it has also been argued that students who are intimidated by the opposite sex may also be affected by low performance and low grades. Many educators believe that single-sex education does not enforce any type of gender-based stereotypes or adolescent subculture. Due to this, single-sex schools have been established to combat these issues.
