Extending the school day may do more harm than good. Secondly, a major reason why the school day should not be extended two hours for students to get help on their homework is simply because of the fact that they do not all need it. Many kids like to work at their own pace and should have the option of getting help or not. Kids that need help go to after school tutorial, but the school should not enforce that all students must stay longer. Another reason to support this idea is because students do not always need two hours to do their homework.
Many people argue that development is vital in the younger years in the child’s life, and the ability to solve problems and apply ideas help in the long-term. Hyman argues that the lower classes create a self imposed barrier to learning their values. This is because he believes that they have a low value on education, with a ‘play safe’ culture and also a low level of self belief. This would all impact on the child performance at school as they would not have the attitude needed to progress. If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation.
I mainly pushed them off because elementary teachers always wanted some kind of colorful and creative diorama or drawing. Even though I found this fairly simple, I just didn’t enjoy the trivial coloring or gluing. I would put these off so much that I would even have to ask my dad to come help me finish just so I could get to bed on time. However as I grew older I began to enjoy schoolwork more. It was becoming more complex, especially in math.
These are the reasons why I do not agree with adding more hours in school. Some adults think that adding more school hours is bad. They think that it takes away time from family. Also, making school hours longer are too tiring for the kids. Still, nobody is sure if longer hours at school will result in better grades.
“(These) values pass on mother-to-mother combine with the natural instincts to love, support and nurture.” If a person was raised spending most of the time on the things that were being bad influence for them such as wrestling or teen’s reality show or their parents were too busy working and did not have enough time to check if they were keeping up with the homework and reading. It is pretty obvious that the child is going to have a great amount of difficulty as they grow up. I agree that raising children is not an easy job but if I was raised in a very bad way and thought my parents did not put enough effort in my upbringing I would not want my children to think the same about me and go through the same rough path of life as I did. Childhood is what makes a child’s base and it is important to pay close attention to their childhood and teach them the difference between good and bad. So, when they grow up they will not have any problem in picking the right path.
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 understand that some people feel that uniforms are a waste of time, but they can never tell anyone why. It seems as though whatever the schools try to do is always wrong. Students’ ability to get dressed in the mornings has become less and less of a hassle because they do not have to make big decisions on what to wear or what not to wear. The only decision they face is if it is hot or cold enough to wear pants, skirts, or shorts. I know that with my high school requiring school uniforms I was able to wake up an hour later for school.
A day without media Nowadays, living without technology is impossible. The ICMPA research paper about "A Day Without Media" shows that how much is media important for some students. Also these research indicate that a day without media has its own positive and negative effects to each student. One of the positive effects for some students was focusing more in class and homework which improve their grades . These students mentioned that because they did not have access to internet, they have more time to study.
There are many effects with long school hours on my kids such as little or no time for after school activity like sports. Long school hours causing my kids to deal with so much stress that it affected their educational performance. In addition to that, long school hours lead to long homework hours and less time for good night sleep. When I was in school, I started my day around six-thirty in the morning. Then I had a light breakfast with my siblings.
Is Homework Overpowering Students? All around the country, students from year 8 to year 14 are victims of an overload of busy work to stuff into their schoolbags to take home and complete. With the opinion that this work needed to be done outside of school is beneficial and will reinforce the subjects that were just taught, teachers are assigning students at least thirty minutes of homework per subject, resulting in a ridiculous pile-up of work for all subjects. The school system is unjustified in allowing teachers to give unlimited amounts of homework because they don’t take into consideration the things students deal with outside of school and it ends up having negative effects on children mentally, physically, and emotionally. As students get older, the amount of work they receive gets larger.
