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,
This is why teaching financial literacy in high school will benefit the students later in their life. Secondly, the people who lack the financial literacy skills do not tend to save or plan for their future retirement. This is because they do not know how to make a financial plan, so they cannot plan their retirement and they have to depend on government pension because they are not self-reliant. Because of the lack of knowledge they do not save money and even if they save they do not know how to invest the money wisely. So
Students might not be comfortable with the idea of YRS at first. Many students' first reaction is the "horrible" thought of "losing" their summer vacations. Really, no one is "losing" the time they get away from school; it is just being spread out over a longer period of time, which is in the students' own best interests. Although it might take some time many students prefer YRS to the standard calendar. "I thought it would be a bit boring, because
Low income will mean that parents will be unable afford educational books or tutoring in order to help the student pass. Although a criticism of his research would be that it was performed years ago and now changes to the education system have been made to counter act such material differences such as free after school study which means that students
In today’s society poverty and oppression go hand in hand. The poor are oppressed by society because they do not have the resources to prepare themselves to compete in a job market. For example, South Central Los Angeles is an oppressed area because people do not have proper education. Schools in this area are overcrowded and the teachers do not teach the way they should. Students are deprived and oppressed of a quality education because the district does not have the money to invest on the kids’ education; unlike in other school districts in wealthier areas where the class sizes are smaller the teaching quality is considerably better.
School uniforms should not be made mandatory at all high schools in Ontario. They shouldn’t be mandatory because they can be very expensive and out of some people’s price range, they discourage self expression and they can boost rivalry between schools. First of all, school uniforms can be an expensive investment every year that some families could struggle with. Some families might struggle to be able to afford the uniform every year and might have to go with the option of getting used uniform. Some kids get bullied for only being able to afford a used uniform.
Over the decades there has been an ongoing debate to change the United States education system in guiding students on a superior future. With the establishment of the No Child Left Behind Act, the importance to score higher on the standardized test has resulted in making budget cut to have more academic courses. When the current U.S. administration made budget cut decisions, the first thing to go is the art, music, and theater classes. The school administration does not realize that the arts are the aspect in people's lives and improves students mentality. A student that is involved in the arts are at low at risk to develop a mental disorder or helps release their frustration in a positive creative way.
Why Uniforms Should Not Be Mandatory Many people have been talking about how enforcing students to wear uniforms to school but I have to disagree. As much as there are advantages to having uniforms there are even more disadvantages to having them. There will be 3 reasons that I will be discussing about in this essay. Reasons are the highly expensive cost, stealing style and individuality from the students and the level of uncomfort uniforms provide. Uniforms are expensive, it might not be to wealthy families but it is a lot to families who are less fortunate.
(“Point: The High Cost of School Uniforms”). If all PA public schools require students to wear uniforms, then the schools would be taking away freedom of expression during the week. Students in school who are growing up and transitioning to an adult world need to know how to live their own lives and be themselves, because eventually they won’t have someone there with them, helping them through things in life. Being themselves also means being able to express themselves the way the wish to. School uniforms are not only items that cause a lack of freedom of expression but also a largely ineffective way to help solve the problems they were meant to.
As in the article “Student Expectations Seen as Causing Grade Disputes” by Max Roosevelt, it is understandable that the students will want to receive a high grade for putting in an extreme amount of effort; although most teachers and/or professors don’t see it that way. They see it as your paper must be error free in order to receive the highest grade possible. To students creating the perfect paper seems impossible, even if they have all the right points and arguments. Furthermore, the teachers/professors really don’t know how much effort the student has put into the paper so they couldn’t grade on effort. For some students it may come naturally to just be able to create great essays so for them it seems to be a breeze.
