Finishing high school is an important milestone in a person’s life, which not only marks the beginning of adulthood, but also opens up higher education and career opportunities. Unfortunately, the U.S.A suffers from one of the highest dropout rates in the developed world, with nearly 7,000 students dropping out of high school every day. In 2012, nearly 22 percent of all students left school without a high school diploma. Dropping out of school can have disastrous, permanent effects on a person’s life. Teens quit school for any number of reasons, but knowing what they are and what risk factors are associated with them can help parents keep their child in school until graduation day.
High school is critical for teenagers, and should bridge the gap maturity between adolescents and adults. However, high schools today are serving more as confinement zones, where parents just leave their kids five days a week and assume development takes place. Through moderations to the grading policies and learning style, high schools will provide students with not only the education needed to succeed but also the attitude to want to continue learning. There is too much emphasis being placed on grades in American high schools. With our increasingly competitive society, students are pushed to make the best grades that they can in the toughest classes that they can take so that they’ll be considered at a prestigious university.
Yang Yang Mrs. Collions ENG 107 6 December 2013 Grandly, we cannot deny that taking a gap year actually delays the regular study, which means students are actually one year behind their classmates, and they also finish their study late. Moreover, lots of high school students choose study abroad programs or other learning programs. Those programs are usually expensive. Therefore, taking a gap year may cost them a lot. Also, some people argue that taking a year off may cause high school students lose the studying interest because they are exposed to the real social life earlier, and they are more likely to get lost in the fancy world than their classmates.

Another one of the major problems caused from not setting dress code for student in high school is computation with in students that ones were each other’s success. Teens in high school of 21st century admit that there’s more computation with others kids not only in sports, educations, but also in dress they wear. Also according to time spend and the experience as being a formal high school student, if the public school set up a dress code it would help both, the students and school faculty. It
A class could have up to two tests and four quizzes a week. Although there are more tests, the work is usually not as hard. It is also reasonable to say that there is more time to complete classroom assignments. Student could be given up to a month to complete major projects. In college if a student wants to turn an assignment in late by using an excuse the instructor would tell them that there was a statement in the syllabus that reads “late assignments will not be accepted”.
In the content of this study, self-study strategies involve time management, studying environment, and note taking. From the statistic of the number of the students in Mae Fah Luang University who drop out early, law students are the highest number of drop out early rate. We hope that if law students who have the problem try to adapt the solution that we have found from the research by collecting the data and information about self-study strategies from excellent students, it may improve their learning skill, their study performance and also increase their grade. And the research question is: To what extent self-strategies employed by excellent law students can be applied with low achievement students? From the study, the first self-study strategy that excellent law student employed is time management.
College graduates are also healthier and they live way longer than kids in high school because high school students tend to smoke more than the college student. But there is also a downfall to college for some kids, they tend to drop out after their first year, for the reason that "college is to hard for me to keep proceeding". Being a graduate from college gets more high paying bosses to check your background and most likely they will be interested in you because you have completed courses at a college level. Also being in college opens up your opportunities to be what ever you desire to achieve to be. Students that don't go to college most of them will be unemployed and not making money.
One of the reason that VanAdams dropped out was because he let a couple failing grades get under his skin. With one of Whitbourne’s viewpoints being academically unprepared, VanAdams thought academics would not be a factor for him in his freshmen year of college. VanAdams knew he was intelligent and so he thought he could just fly threw classes and ace them like in high school. The reasoning that Whitbourne gives for high school seniors being academically unprepared is that college it demands more time for studying and reading. I agree to this statement because it is very true.
There are numerous community colleges across the nation, and several undergraduates attend community colleges every year. With an enormous amount of undergraduates attending community colleges, society as a whole should want the colleges to be in the best conditions to educate our future members of society. However, most community colleges are failing to provide the best conditions possible for their students. Community colleges are failing to properly educate their students, and because education is a valuable aspect of the American society, community colleges should be refined to produce knowledgeable citizens of the United States of America. Community colleges require some students to take remedial classes due to low standardized test
