Many people believe that if a child has Special Educational Needs he/she should be educated in a special school. However the Special Educational Needs Act 2001 was intended to consolidate the SEN child’s right to a mainstream education. “The Act has amended the Education Act 1996 and transformed the statutory framework for inclusion into a positive endorsement of inclusion” (DfES/0774/2001, page 1). With this revised act the views of parents are taken into account in each individual case, if they want their child to attend a mainstream school then everything possible should be done to provide it. Inclusion and SEN has an impact on every aspect of learning within schools, no
If this is the case the teacher can tell if gifted children are helping their fellow classmates with the homework or work that is being taught. Gifted children normally need more of a challenge in school than other children. Parents who have a gifted child will want them to not be in a room where they aren’t challenged enough because then the child isn't learning anything. If a child isn't learning anything they will get bored easier and then they won’t want to go to school. In schools, there are more children who need more help than gifted children.
(Yell, 1998) The purpose of the law is to ensure students with learning disabilities the opportunity to get educated just as any other student in the United States. The President’s Panel on Mental Retardation was created by John F. Kennedy in (1961). It would be the start in getting others to acknowledge that there are children with learning disabilities and that
Premises: 1) Standardized test are not standardized. 2) The consequences for schools not making the grade are very unforgiving. 3) They only measure a small portion of a student’s abilities. Standardized Tests Negative or Positive In the beginning, the intent of standardized testing was to be helpful by producing information that teachers and school systems could use to improve the educational structure for students. Although standardized tests have been around for a very long time, there is still a mountain of controversy surrounding, if they are helpful or a hindrance to our elementary and secondary school students.

In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack. When a student doesn’t want to do the assigned work when given the time, and then they realize they cannot go outside and play with their friends until its complete they will just scribble down something. If the grade is group based then that student is relying on the rest of the group to get positive credit for something he or she has not done, this only teaches students to be
Who decides this? Is this system effective? Standardized testing is not effective and has produced additional issues in the classroom. Children are not learning, according to standardized test scores. The government, parents, and teachers are trying all they can to come up with a successful solution.
Moreover, it has been observed that countries with highest scoring students on standardized tests come from Japan, Czech Republic and Denmark, where teachers assign little homework. Meanwhile, the countries with lowest scoring students come from Iran, Greece and Thailand, where assign a lot of homework (Baker and LeTendre 180). This evidence shows that there is no factual basis for the claim that teachers use homework to improve the grades of the students. Hence, homework has no significant correlation with the academic performance. A student’s academic performance is also determined by his motivation towards the learning material.
If the student has learning disabilities, they will not tell anybody because they are too embarrassed to mention them and they struggle throughout school; they don’t ask for help. The second reason that high school grads are unable to read is failure of school systems. Schools are overpopulated and crowded and ones that are in large populated areas are more focused on academic functions then the curriculum of learning. They don’t have enough teachers or teacher’s assistants to give each individual one on one time to learn the material. Students don’t have that support from the teacher that they need to succeed in school.
Piling on the homework will not help the students advance in school. In fact it could well have the reverse effect entirely. Students report becoming stressed from the volume of homework that is assigned by their collective teachers within a day’s time in high school and ultimately not getting all of the work completed (Rhodes). Stress can affect children in many positive and negative ways. Although for high school pupils, stress that is created by overloads of homework is never a positive aspect to have in life.
