It also holds back the kids who work hard to succeed.” Many of the people I asked agreed in some way with Casey. I also asked another girl I graduated with, Lauren Maule, who now attends Eastern Carolina University, she said that she did not believe NCLB was affective because, “No Child Left Behind serves as a way to let students who do not deserve to move on in the school system, move ahead. If you do not work during the school year and can pass a test at the end and your peers did homework every night and just cannot seem to sit through a test you do not deserve to be able to be compared to them by moving on to the next grade level.” Both Casey and Lauren were in the top ten percent of our class, and neither agrees with what has happened in high schools since 2001. Who understands the effects more then the people who experienced it? I would have to completely agree with Casey and Lauren. NCLB allows students who put forward minimal or no effort to
Many times they will wear clothes that are inappropriate or pressure parents to spend extra money on designer labels. Sometimes students will make these decisions to simply avoid being bullied at school for not being trendy enough. Students that only have the option to wear uniforms have less of a burden showing off brand names or certain styles to peers. For example, a pre-teen girl wouldn’t have the pressure of wearing short shorts or carry a Coach handbag just to impress her friends or get attention from boys. Additionally, schools will have less violence and see discipline increase among students because they will not have issues with anger or jealously based on what others are wearing.
Critical Analysis of an Ineffective Academic Essay In The Extended School Day, Harriet David writes about the advantages of extending school days for the students, parents, and teachers. David states that having extended school days would eliminate the parents’ worries of whether their child is safe and happy at home. She also expresses that students would have a chance to work on subjects that give them trouble rather than struggling at home with no help. Teachers would also benefit from these extended days because they would gain hours relieving pressure and increasing their pay. Above all, the author has written this essay ineffectively because of three essential elements not being composed skillfully.
The first perceptive is of Cassie, who wants to follow her dreams of being a math teacher. This is realistic because of her grades, hard work, and motivation. While, from her perspectives she believes that this dream is possible even with math trouble, Mr. Tempe feels differently. I can see from Mr. Tempe’s perspective that he worries that other math in the future, more challenging math will not allow Cassie to follow her dreams. Although, it may be true that minorities and females are not common in the math profession that does not mean it is not possible for Cassie to
While ideas supporting social promotion may be valid, in the end it is not beneficial to students throughout their school careers or later on in their lives. This has been an ongoing issue for a few decades, and is still a topic of controversy. Social promotion should not be an option to students of all grades because it prevents them from being well educated, keeps students behind in their future, can be avoided by schools with a few enhancements. Promoting students to the next grade who have failed or are not ready to move up leaves the student without knowledge. When a student fails a class or grade, they also have failed learning the material that is repeatedly said to us by administrators is “important”.
I feel like the performance on one test should not dictate whether you do or do not advance a grade. The act also places too much stress on the teachers. If their students do not meet the standard set forth, they risk losing their career. The job of a teacher is to teach and help students learn, not pass a test. Eliminating
I believe that you cannot force kids into learning and even doing so, they will have a harder time attending classes than before. It’s a distraction to the teachers and their fellow peers, making harder for kids who would want to be there, seems like a 4 year prison. Again, keeping these kids who would rather be goofing off and making trouble does not help them one bit. A better solution is to provide an alternative way to receive their well-deserved education, not getting stuck in some traditional high school they cannot do well
Why Children Despise Reading Prior to starting public school, the idea of reading and writing is exciting to many young children. Being able to communicate grammatically as well as verbally with others is an important milestone in a young child’s life. Because of this, educators are pressed to make sure their students are not shorted in their English education. However, according to John Holt’s How Teachers Make Children Hate Reading, the present conventional methods of teaching English are hindering children from enjoying the experience of reading and writing. Today, children view school as a “place of danger”, and their main focus is to avoid danger as much as possible (Holt 360).
In comparison to public schools, there is no minimum requirements that must be met by a student. For example, if a student was to fail a grade a teacher in high school would still promote them to next level because the reputation of the teacher will be connected to the number of students passing that grade. Otherwise there will be pressure from administrators to pass the students using some innovative methods such as project activities. Thus, this leads
