Situations like this are not uncommon; in fact there are numerous cases like these where students have suffered serious injuries due to gym class. Students should not be required to do such strenuous and potentially harmful activities. Many students have insecurities about their athletic ability. Those who are not quite as athletic find exercising in front of their peers embarrassing. Some kids are not good at gym, others are, and some have different learning paces and styles and are on different levels of accuracy.
First, the high school students should have special treatment. Many athlete students have many absences because of too much practices and road trips. They do not have energy to study. They miss many exams. The school gives special treatment to the students so they could have better or higher grades and they could go to college.
In High Schools around the United States scores are getting worse and worse and it’s due to unmotivated teachers who don’t care about the integrity of teaching anymore because it all seems pointless in this current time. You could make a lot more points about High School and its flaws but these ones are the biggest ones that need addressing. From High School to College, a lot of things change. In College you pick your classes, your times, basically everything. You have freedom to do what you like and aren’t held back by counselors and certain start times.
The question of the assessment being appropriate for students with disabilities is also raised. Teachers feel that this time-consuming process tends to take away from other students who aren’t completing a portfolio that school year. Other complaints by teachers include the subjective nature of the scoring, the validity of the portfolio for assessing the effectiveness of a program, and the lack of support and assistance that they receive from administrators and teachers in general education in completing the portfolio assessments.

Though this may not be directly connected to middle school students it will still have an impact to them in life. Homework also creates stress. Stress from working too long, stress from anxiously hoping to get a good grade. WORD COUNT: 294 TOTAL: 294 It is estimated that 75% of student visits to the doctor are partly stress related. Thus pupils are not going to do as well as they could as a result of the sickness from the stress of their
Bad school experiences are also a large contributor for the school dropout rate. A large majority of dropout students were only taking the bare minimum general high school requirements. This is because no one pushed them to try harder. This made students feel that school was not important enough to try hard at. These students then do not even care because they do not think school is important.
Many students, parents, educators argue that school uniforms should not be carried out because the Childs individually is being taken away. Their freedom of expression is being restraint and no outlet for their creativity to form. The rapped changes in the world today with social media, television, music and home family life are all influential to the youth of today. With these influences being there main focus this often affects how they dress and behave. Although, what students wear often becomes the soul identity and determine what groups they will or will not be accepted to.
One example of how uniforms restrict learners is that "without the outlet of expression in their clothes, students may turn to inappropriate hair styles, jewelry, or makeup". So by restricting students of their clothing choice, they will still find a way to show their personality in their makeup, jewelry, and hairstyles. As stated by the Public School Review, under the First Amendment, it argues that uniforms stifle (restrain) children who feel robbed of their individualism. In addition uniforms create a false sense of security. Even if uniforms decrease violence and everyone is treated equal, the outside world does not run as orderly and smoothly as it would in a school.
Students might want to drop out because they are struggling in school, getting bullied, have a health issue, have personal family problems, or just have a planned out future that doesn't require a high school diploma. Making teens do something they absolutely don't want to do, especially after they are 16, can result in even worse outcomes. “Efforts to raise the age usually come up against the argument that requiring students to stay in school when they no longer want to be there is disruptive to the other students and not fair to the teacher”. Thats a very knowledgeable statement because its true that when teens want to drop out, they want to drop out before they are 18, so they are most likely going to be careless and disrespectful at school. Some teens have personal reasons that are sometimes urgent, and staying in school isn't an option.
That is, until the next day. Now, this structure of sitting still for an hour, while having to retain everything our teacher says, and then having to drop everything at the sound of a bell to switch to a completely different subject, does not seem like the best way for any adolescent to successfully learn. However, is it possible that this system, though not ideal for many students, in general works better in the interest of only one half of the population? Not all girls like ballet and nail polish, and not all boys wants to grow up to be firemen and football players. However, research indicates that they are not exactly blank slates, free of gender predispositions, when they are born.
