It is a bit absurd that when students, who are eager to get to class on time to learn something new, are forced to be late, because other students are simply not doing what should be done in a hallway. Walk. Yes walk that is what the hallway is for. I mean, yes there are lockers, and I understand that most students do not carry around all of their things, so they need their lockers; but there is a substantial amount of space that allows students to get to their lockers, get whatever it is they need and walk to their respective classroom. However, it is ridiculous that when students try to use the hallway for what it is for, other students who clearly don’t understand the purpose of the hallway stop, yes stop in the middle of it to talk to their friends, make an illegal U turn or my absolute favorite to “eat the face off” of their significant other.
This serious problem causes many students to drop out of school. Nearly 1.2 million students between the ages of 15 and 24 dropped out of high school in one year alone. They do this to either to help their family or to get a handle on their problem. Students in broken homes are more than twice as likely to drop out of school than those with families intact. This is so because of the fact that this is another stressful matter these young minds must also deal with.
Now, those same four years later, we’re leaving the school behind to a whole new crop of people, most of whom were just as nervous as we were when we arrived. I am just coming to the realisation now of what a rollercoaster journey of emotions this has been for everyone. We have all had our ups and downs, but we endured all of the stress of the lows and enjoyment and extreme happiness of the highs, still making it through. It has been a long four years and a short four years. Long because of all the drama and bad homework, the boring talks and late-in-the-evening extra classes, and all the other little pratfalls that hit us in secondary school.
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.
Studies show that students who are over-age for their class was held back a grade level. Not completing assignments, late work, or just missing class led up to being held back a grade. Over-age students seem to need more help in the classroom, than the regular students. Adolescents pick many excuses to drop out of school. Being bored and frustrated with class, many teens say school is irrelevant to
These days feeling safe in school is no longer a feeling that we have. Right now in the United States we are having a very big problem with school shootings which could be caused by many things. This is a conflict that is constantly growing year after year which is not a good sign. Just within the last couple days we have heard about two fatile school shootings and multiple threats. Kids around the U.S. in schools are starting to write threats around the school as a joke.
Thousands of children go to school every day filled with fear and trepidation; other feign illness to avoid being taunted or attacked on the way to school or in the school yard, hallways, and bathrooms; still others manage to make themselves sick at school so as to avoid harassment in the locker room. Children who are bullied spend a lot of time thinking up ways to avoid the trauma and have little energy left for learning. It is not only the bullied child who suffers the consequences of bullying. Many children who bully continue these learned behaviors into adulthood and are at increased risk of bullying their own children, failing at interpersonal relationships, losing jobs, and ending up in jail. Bystanders are also affected by bullying.
Many student go to school and do not learn enough or do not have enough time to comprehend the material given to them from their teachers. This can lead to stress and horrible relationships with family due to the students studying and doing tons of homework instead of spending time with family. For example many teens have bad relationships with their parents because they either are too stressed with all the work given from the school, or because they are going through a change in life. Did you know that more than 56% of students say that homework is the main source of stress and less than 1% say that hw is not a stressor in their lives. In schools more and more students are getting stressed out because they do not understand the material and
