About 1 million students do not make their way to graduation (Koenig). Dropping out of high school will inhibit any students ability to go onto college. Studies show that if a student were to drop out of high school, the crime rate will be higher(Kokemuller). According to professional statistics, in 2010, the percentage of high school dropouts was at a high of seven percent (Henry). At age sixteen, if a student were to drop out of high school, this student would need a parent to sign for them, and there are many parents who also believe children need an education.
Not only should students be graded on academics but also on behavior, when students behavior is being graded parents reciev a report of how their children are acting while they are not present. if students behavior is not being graded parents must solely go by what the child is telling them, the child could easily be lying to them or keeping information about what occured to themselves. now parents would have a full report not just a few letters and short comments about how their child is behaving.parents are not always informed about what is happening behing closed doors of the school it would be fantastic for them to have something else to refere to for this information. the parents will know how students truely are acting not just if they are intellegent and can make amazing grades all year. if parents see behavior problems that studnts otherwise keep hidden in a report, then they will be able to help and work with them on improving.
High school dropouts have always been a problem in the United States, there are over 1.2 million students that drop out of high school each year. That’s a student every 26 seconds or 7,000 a day (2015). There are many reasons why students dropout of high school, it could be as simple as them individually not liking school to actually having a difficult life that gets in between their school studies. The top main reasons why students dropout is: lack of parent engagement, poor academic performances, work or family economic needs, lack of a supportive adult, disconnected between school academics and work, not enough individualized attention, and low student engagement. Almost one-half of African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans fail
The way that adolescents converse with each other make the difference between accepting their opinion and declining the advice. The voluntary relationship of not having to accept the individual’s comments but having the choice also makes a huge difference in a parent’s involuntary receiving and a friend’s intentional acceptance. Identity vs. Role Confusion, one of Erikson’s stages of psychological development, states that around the ages of 12-18, a child struggles with finding sense of self. The child through success is able to differentiate between what they truly want to proceed with doing without falling into peer pressure’s grasp. But, with the failure to discover one’s sense of self, the child falls victim to friend’s opinions.
Parents who abuse their kids were abused and had a poor upbringing. Nowadays with technology and researches found, they could help change and also teach their kids to avoid the same mistakes when they grow up. As the child grows, parents can set limits instead of violence. Fact is that when kids behave out of the normal, it is not to make parents angry but because they are in need of attention. We all know that parents’ the first reaction is to lose it, so instead of punching, parents can try time outs until the child comprehends why he or she is being punished.
To say school is bad for children is extremely inaccurate, many children look forward to this as their safe haven. In John Holt 's essay “school is bad for children” he argues that school prevents children from learning what they want and that it enables their curiosity making them become passive learners I found myself disagreeing with his arguments. Holt proposes ideas to reform the school system to make it more favorable for children in which i do agree with partially. School is one of the many things children need to succeed; getting students to work together more efficiently is great but taking students out of the school to learn along with removing compulsory school attendance and required curriculum is not the answer.

For example, if children were autistic and needed more of a challenge in education, then the children probably will not like the school that they attend. By giving educational vouchers a chance, parents will have the choice to send their children to the school that they think they will benefit from. For instance, instead of having just two kinds of schools, private and public, America will have a palette of choice including voucher redeeming public schools, voucher redeeming private or parochial ones, quasi-public schools and home learning. In addition, The Public Education, by Myron lieberman, says, "A consistent pattern across the board indicates that parents who exercise choices either public or private are more satisfied with the schools their children attend." There are many reasons why educational vouchers are beneficial if they are used properly and for the right reasons.
Through my advocacy work, I have found that teachers are not providing students with disabilities individualized attention as outlined in a student’s Individual Education plan. Teachers continue to follow instructions from administrators to place the burden of education on the student causing students anxiety and frustrating despite knowing such treatment is wrong and inhumane. The treatment often results in elevated high school dropout rates of students with disabilities. It is hard to understand why a teacher may treat a student, who is obviously willing to learn, in such a manner. The Asch Conformity Experiment is a good example; making it easier to understand the behavior or a group of educators.
Parents can be influential for their children, but it would be very biased because they control what the child is learning. Parents who do not allow their children to learn the same curriculum that public school attending children are learning are sheltering them, in a way; prohibiting them from learning the things that public school will teach them. “Improving students' relationships with teachers has important, positive and long-lasting implications for both students' academic and social development.” (Rimm-Kaufman). Students and teacher bonds are one of the most important bonds because if a teacher gets through to a student, then that student has a better chance of making it in the
As a parent, you are always trying to look out for your children, making what you think is the best decision for them and their futures. When it comes to schooling, each parent struggles to decide what type of education is most beneficial to their child. The ability to have a choice of where to send your children to school was not always possible. Now more than ever, parents are confused about which form of education is best for their children. When comparing homeschool, private schools, and public schools, it is important to look at the advantages and disadvantages of them all.
