There are more important class than one that requires students run around for an hour, and the fact that all students are put into one class, rather than being separated by physical level of fitness and skill in sports, only makes it all the more unfair. To add to it, the class seems to take priority over other classes. Why should students that plan on pursuing a career in music be forced to spend their time in a gym class? While completely removing gym from the school course isn’t a great idea, allowing it to be a chosen class rather than a required class could help students focus on their own goals. School enforces a healthy lifestyle, and that makes sense and is a good goal for schools to have.
On an online debate website, a student speaks out about thru experiences with homework communicating.” We kids nowadays have a lot of stuff to do. By the time we get home the day is almost over and we dinner and sports (Debate.org).” We have seven hours of school and when u get home with homework (tons) and you have dinner and sports so if we had less homework we would be able to eat dinner or eat late and no sports. On Scholastic news have parents interviewed about how less homework we should have.” What’s bad for” parents, is generally worse for kids.” School (for my son) is work,” one mother writes,” and by the end of a seven-hour workday, he’s exhausted. But like a worker on a double shift, he has to keep going once he gets home. (NEA Today).” Seven hours is a lot of the day working all day and we never stop five days a week and we have homework which is bad for us, it makes us tired.” Decades ago, the American Educational Research Association released this statement: “Whenever homework crowds out social experience, outdoor recreation, and creative activities, and whenever it usurps time that should be devoted to sleep (Scholastic news).” Kids need to play outside and have a social life they need to enjoy their free time but there is no free time because of all the homework.
Kendrick Watts Moyer English 1020- 026 10 February 2014 Is College Really for Me…?? In the essay “Is College for Everyone” by Pharinet, discusses that it’s not mandatory to attend a college institution to obtain a well-paying job. In the beginning of the essay Pharient refrains to a statement that students hear every day, “You want get anywhere without your education (635).” This is a statement that many teachers and parents repeatedly preach to their child since they were kindergartener’s. Pharinet also explains in a reasonable tone, that having a college degree doesn’t always bring success in most students’ life. Mainly because, students are not properly preparing themselves to what seems to be the “real world”.
Brianna Stahl WR 121/400, Ms. Roush Unit 1: Dialoguing with Others about Ideas Monday, November 04, 2013 Who does not need education, apparently you? Do children really need an education and if they do are they in school too long? This question causes many different reactions from me because I see endless possibilities with schooling and without a financial barrier I would attend school for the rest of my life. As a working adult, who has little time, I often think that schooling goes on for too long. In his article “Against School: How Public Education Cripples Our Kids and why” John Taylor Gatto blames the education system for creating a cattle drive that sends people towards a specific labor goal.
I know that with my high school requiring school uniforms I was able to wake up an hour later for school. Which was so much better for me since I stayed awake doing extra projects. With everyone wearing close to the same things, it is harder to guess socioeconomic background and discriminate because of it. Uniforms in schools have helped more children want to come to school since they know that they will not be picked on. One of my mentees told me that he would skip school because the other students would pick on him.
According to some parents, their children waste as much as an hour in front of the mirror getting ready for school. Sometimes, it is main reason why their children are late to school. In addition, it can cause conflict between parents and their children. Uniforms, thus, save students time in the morning by eliminating the time they use to choose what they should wear. They help students focus on what is more important than fashion and beauty trends.
With school starting later, the bus schedule can make a tremendous change. Also, with school getting out at two in the afternoon, parents have to still attend their jobs. Another problem is how kids always complain that they do not have enough time to eat breakfast in the morning. With school starting later in the morning, they would have a much need amount of time to grab something to eat before heading out the door. It is extremely important for you to have something in your stomach
Schooling life is a important part to all of the teenagers. Since they start their school life, every day they meet their classmates and teachers more than their parents. The “A” students have good performance in all of the test, teachers love them. But they don't have friends in school nor clubs. Isn't it a big problem we have to worried about?

Also, according to Dalile from Huffington Post, 90% of students in schools are more ecstatic when they have art. Supposingly, art and musics aren’t known as core classes or classes of importance causing those subjects to the abolishment in schools. Schools also will believe art and music are unnecessary and would think cutting those classes would benefit the school, which mostly doesn’t and has kids who don’t excel in subjects like English or math to have no
