One major benefit of year-round schooling is the students’ retention rates are increased. Taking shorter breaks rather than one large break over the summer keeps the learning process ongoing with minimal disruption. As a result, the students are able to retain the material he or she has learned throughout the school year. Less time away from the classroom, results in less time spent reviewing material that has already been taught. The students and the teachers can make use of the school day by teaching and learning new material, instead of wasting time reviewing lessons learned the previous school year.
From my personal perspective is that schools should never do anything to hurt student performance. So when the statistics show that the 4 day school week does not have any adverse effects on student learning, but actually produced net gains, I wanted to know how. As we all know learning comes down to the quality of teachers a student has. We can all agree that better teacher attendance will lead to increased student learning, when a teacher is absent and a substitute is put in the classroom, it is usually a wasted day, in regards to student learning. With a 4 day school week, schools have reported up to a 21.8 % increase in teacher attendance.
It actually refers to a reallocation of students over the year. Under a 180-day year-round school year, students work within a system in which the time off for vacations and holidays is more equitably distributed. There are shorter breaks between semesters or terms. Some schools prefer the 45 days on and 15 days off plan while others look to other models. These include a 60-day on and 20 off and 90 days in class and 30 days out.
The notion of spending more time in school is not “wildly popular”, but necessary." (A) When you compare the length of Japans school year to that of the United States it's evident that we're at huge disadvantage. It's crucial for the secretary of Education and for the government to extend the school year by either lengthening the school day, or shortening summer vacation in order for US students to score at the same range as other countries. Not only will it benefit the students, but it will benefit their parents as well by allowing them to have ample time to further their own education or to put in more hours at work When you ask a 1st place marathon runner how much time they spent training at the gym and compare it to the response from the runner who placed last, their responses will be in stark contrast from each other. The same concept applies towards the student who scores a 32 on the ACT compared with a student who scored a 22.
One of the main reasons I have chosen to ho back t school is my family and their well-being. I feel like if I go to school and get an education then I can take care of them the way I need to take care of them. I feel like going back to school will have many good advantages as well as some disadvantages . Some good things is that I will be furthering my education and in the world we live in it’s almost required. Another advantage is that many more job opportunities will come and I will have a better selection then I do now.
Joining college immediately also reduces the time wasted and the period of completing college prolonged. If minimized, one is able to finish school fast, get a job and focus on other things in life like investment. It also enables one to advance in their education while still young so as to give room for other advances in life. It would be difficult to pursue such if time would be wasted after completion of every level of education. When students attend colleges immediately, they are kept away from the world of crime that many youth tend to get into due to being without a job.
We can all agree that a school is a place to study and learn new things to take you farther in life. Using school uniforms may seem to have some disadvantages, such as; the cost of a new school uniform clothing may be expensive due to the upfront costs. Also, hemming the kilt or fixing the pants length may take some time when you first buy the uniform. Another problem involving the uniforms is that a student causing trouble will reflect badly on the school he/she is attending since they can be easily identified. On the contrary, even though school uniforms may seem to have some disadvantages, they can be seen as advantages when you look at it in a different perspective.
After getting paid from superior grades, students are more likely to stay in school. They will also feel more encouraged by getting rewarded. Some people say money doesn’t make a difference, but most people say it does. Money is one of the things that can help kids listen better. Another reason is that it will make students work much harder than before.
Year-round education could have a part to play. Proponents of year-round education argue that the key to success in school is continuous learning. They also argue that the traditional calendar works against efficient learning by sending students and teachers to months of school without significant breaks and sets students back significantly during a 60-70 day summer vacation. On the other hand, having a longer summer vacation is a tradition that is firmly entrenched in many communities. Is there really solid evidence to show that moving from a traditional calendar to a year-round calendar increases student achievement?
What do you see as the strengths of the paper, and what would I try to do if you were to revise it. I believe my strengths in my paper were being able to show if it is right to go to year round education, the effects year round schooling could have on students, effects on parents and if it will increase the declining academics in our schools. 5. What‘s not part of the paper that you think might help a reader understand or appreciate it more. What wasn’t put in?
