The schools are forced to cut back on programs such as extracurricular activities that are suppose to encourage students to be active, or they would have to cut back on supplies where in some cases there are not enough textbooks for each student to have his or her own. The U.S. Department of Education also stated that teachers that are less paid and have less years teaching are often the ones dealing with the students in poverty. (U.S. Department of Education). This only prolongs the problem with children receiving the proper education. If they are taught by teachers who don’t know what they are teaching or those who don’t have enough experience, then the students are not going to learn the correct information or any information at all.
Motivation can be easily misunderstood from wanting to graduate and not finding your strength and weaknesses throughout the schooling. When a student doesn’t understand a lesson most say ill look it up later or that won’t affect me on the test. But in reality every fact helps with the overall understanding and the purpose of the lessons. Some don’t like high school or lower grades because they are taught subjects that don’t interest them. They additionally think if no one, not even the teacher, is putting in the effort for them to succeed than they shouldn’t either.
It doesn’t make them bad kids, or even bad students. Drop-outs report that some of the main reasons they drop out of school is not seeing value in the work they do. Almost half of them said the classes were not interesting, and were bored of their work, and say it’s among the main reasons students would stop attending classes (Furger “How to End the Dropout Crisis”). Expectations also tend to run high for students by their teachers. Regular students in school also debate to themselves to make the decision of dropping out from time to time, from the stress levels of piling assignments.
It would be really hard to have a job, take care of a baby, and go to school, forcing you to drop out of school so you can do the other things. When school gets hard for students they give up. Students don’t think they can ever do it and will fail, so they decide to dropout. If students can get a tutor they will realize they can do the work, and will want to stay in school. Often time’s students need someone who can show them one on o... ... middle of paper ... ...g. Right now is the time for him to decide what he wants, if he chooses to stay the way he is I don’t think he will graduate.
When students fail to recognize their ability to succeed in school due to being placed in lower educational tracks, they fall behind in school and are often unable to move into a higher track which affects their options for college and a career. It is clear to me that students’ perceptions of their own intelligence affects their future achievements. Evidently, if we wish to provide the best for our students, we should turn away from stratification and promote educational achievement for every
Students shouldn’t be allowed to drop out before they turn 18 (Schragel). Most students that drops out of school before they turn 18 are mostly troubled students. They have no interests in graduating and acts like a clown so that everyone else could suffer right along with them. The students themselves make wrong decisions. They get into situations they can’t get themselves out of and don’t know how to deal with them.
Just because you don’t understand the subject of a test doesn’t mean you can’t get anywhere in life. Exams are a bad way of testing your knowledge at any age. “Our compulsory school-attendance laws once served a humane and useful purpose. They protected the children’s right to some schooling, … Today the laws help nobody”(3) Holt explains that keeping kids in school who don’t want to be there costs “an enormous amount of time and trouble”(3). Even if the teacher was trying to teach the child something useful, him not wanting to be there is a waste of time for them both.
Although the passage argues that students are to blame for the mediocrity, but a deeper analysis is required. If all things are equal, children are a reflection of their parents so if they taught them to just get by, then the child will not have the motivation to go beyond the already lacking education system. Therefore when the student gets to high school his ways are deeply engraved in their character making visible change difficult. Sooner or later they watch their peers get by with doing the minimum intellectual work and getting the most from their other activities. After all, the student does not understand that minimum wage pays for a couple of things, but does not provide for a family.
Many students have disorders that prevent them from reaching standards set by schools. Schools teach students in one way and one way only. Yet people are all different and cannot be taught just one way. By doing that, it is allowing students to fail while others succeed. And eventually those kids and their start to think maybe they just are not cut out for public school and the method used to teach.
When you take a child out of school it doesn’t just take away their opportunity to see their friends or make bad decisions in school again, it takes away their education. Now if schools were to start using In School Suspension, where the children still have to go to school and do work but are separated from everyone else, that is usually a worse punishment than not having to go to school for a few days. The fact of the matter is that most of the people who get suspended are people who don’t care and have parents who don’t care if they get suspended or not. They would rather get suspended than still have to stay in school and do work. Yes, sometimes it is necessary to suspend a child or punish them in a harsher way, but still there is no reason to take a child away from their education because of a bad mistake or decision they made.
