Should standardized tests have such a vital role in the schooling systems today? Testing should not hold such importance because it causes stress, low self esteem, causes students to give up, and does not truly show the intelligence of students. Self esteem is already a problem that most students face especially during teenage years and above. Self esteem can be causes by trying to live up to unrealistic standards and creating an immense amount of pressure on oneself to do well (Self Esteem 1). When students feel the pressure to be perfect from parents, teachers, or peers it causes them to somewhat shut down and not perform well.
Not all students can be committed to completing summer homework. I also think that summer homework is not beneficial for the teacher because the teacher has to take time out of her lesson plan to let the students complete their summer homework, because she feels bad giving the student a bad grade at the beginning of the school year. Remember the summer homework is half of your first semester grade so if you mess up on summer reading and get a bad grade or no grade you're screwed. With that being said, I think summer
I believe that the twelve month school year should be implemented in Monmouth County because of these following reasons. The Author of Say 'No' to Year-round Schooling claims that a twelve month school year would deprive students of their "well earned" freedom, deny students who wish to work during the regular school year the chance to do so, make it impossible for families to have beneficial getaways, result in teachers working in hot classrooms, result in teachers doing even more amounts of work without getting paid more and result in teachers being unable to have vacations with their own families, and result in teachers having to hire sitters to care for their children. The author believes these things because of her assumptions that the twelve month school year will have less vacation time, the teachers will not be paid more, and that the schools air conditioners will not be are conditioned. Year-long schooling will bring a fuller education and students will be less likely to be exposed to negative influences, and be less likely to become victims of crimes. The author says that since the students will be exhausted from attending school from fall to spring, students will not be able to accomplish much over the summer.
The other side claims that year round school is essential for some, since student often forget a lot during the summer break. Nonetheless, Year round school is definitely not the answer, because it creates family conflict, it creates social problem, and it takes away job opportunities for students during the summer. Year round schooling has been reported to create family conflict due to the change in schedule. The reason why this has become a controversy for families, because children may not be on the same schedule as their sibling. One sibling might be enjoying his or her two month break while the other has to sit in class working.
I believe that the three month traditional summer vacation should be maintained because many students get stressed. Many students now have jobs after school which could get stressful after having eight hours of schools. Students may have to study and do their homework, but after work, they would be exhausted and want to relax by that time. Moreover, Students get stressed when just thinking that they have eight hours of school ahead of them. Students want more days off of school with the way it is now; making them year round will just make it worst for the students and teachers.
Homework should be banned Schools should not give homework for a variety of reasons. Learning is best done at school and stress is often caused by work given by schools. The need to do lots of additional work makes pupils prefer not to learn more about the topic. As students do undesirable activities, they lose otherwise better spent time with their family and friends. Thus it is clear that homework should be banned.
School Uniforms Picture waking up in the morning for school, knowing you have no options in choosing what to wear. You can’t express yourself because your school is forcing you to wear uniforms and it gets boring wearing the same thing every day. School uniforms are a bad idea because it causes discipline problems, they can be costly, and it suppresses individuality and self expression. My first reason against school uniforms is that they cause discipline problems. Uniforms can aggravate the students because they can’t express their style in clothing, causing them to rebel and act out in school.
This messes up the learning process. A class is only 45 minutes long, and when a student talks the teacher must stop their lecture in order to punish the student. It is even inappropriate to talk a little in the lesson while the teacher is pulling up a video. This may seem unfair but talking still has the potential to somehow distract the students who are not working. Perhaps it takes their minds out of class mode and sets the tone for a distracted learning environment.
They like to have a break from being i school as well, and would not appreciate having to work all year. Without a break, and having to deal with the students, the teachers would be annoyed and even more tired than the students. A 12 month school year also would not be good for the school itself. The school already has enough things to deak with in the normal school year. If the school was to add four months to its year it might be too much to handle.
This is considered a main personal problem because it seems quite unavoidable. When a student faces the trouble of needing to drop out to support ones family, it seems practically impossible to not choose family over school and education. Learning disabilities cannot go un-noticed; they have taken a big role in students quitting high school. When a student feels dumb and tries hard but always falls behind his fellow classmen it is extremely hard to go through every day. Problems like dyslexia and even ADHD tend to
