Not only do students focus on a single test, but are the teachers and stress causing the students to feel stressed? It has been proven that theses standardized te... ... middle of paper ... ...ents (which can damage their health); does not sound in anyway helpful. Teachers and students both agree that this testing should be done away with. Teachers boycotting tests, and quitting their jobs because they believe they do not offer results. The reason for theses tests are to make a student more knowledgeable, and a head start for college, but they keep the students at a tenth grade level with each test.
The worst things about this rule is, if the students do decide to come to school (even if they are at risk of failing that class) their teacher will have to sit down with the consoler, to decide if the student should pass the class of not. In high school, they are many teenagers who are going through teenager problem. They are students who don’t like their teacher for reasons only they can explain. That student may not be friendly toward their teacher, and the teacher don’t like the student because of his/her attitude, and the teacher decides to fail the student. But that student, may have a very good grade in the class, but because they are disrespectful, that teacher decide to fail that student because he/she has three unexcused absences in class.
Her rude comments, laughing, and grading methods make me, as well as my other students, feel discouraged. No matter how much we studied, no on could ever do good in her class. Even if some teachers teach differently than others, all of them should want the student to feel confident about what they learned in the end. Mrs. Jones’s view is different in a negative way because she gets more joy out of watching students struggle than succeed. For these reasons, Mrs. Jones is the perfect example of a bad teacher whose policies and practices have detrimental effect on students’ ability and desire to learn.
These unfavorable attitudes in schools are caused by teachers. As stated by Ashraf, et al, “Teacher’s personality has so many dimensions which affects students in grooming their personality and to build up their character.” The research support that teacher’s characteristics are related to students’ attitudes. Surprisingly, The NDPC found that 43.5% of the students who were pushed out of schools in 2006 dropped out due to an absenteeism. Why many students absent repeatedly? Carl Azuz, the anchor of CNN Student News, reported that over half of American students who are regularly absent say that “school is boring.” Students feel bored in classes due to boring teachers.
American public teachers that say they are here to get paid and do not care much about their students. Those teachers could clearly mess up a student’s future because a teacher’s voice could have a negative impact on the student which causes them to not try in school. Today, there are many public school teachers who do not supply enough knowledge to their students; For example, I had trouble writing an essay in college right now because the public teachers I had in my school would literally give me an outstanding grade just for completing the assignment, so I thought I was always good at what I did. I thought writing essays were simple and were plain boring because I did not put effort in writing at all due to getting outstanding grades on all my essays. J... ... middle of paper ... ...can public system worked this way every student will have a higher rate of graduation and less dropouts in school.
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.
This a common attitude among students who fair poorly on a test. It is not bad teaching that causes a student to fail a class, it is bad learning. Laziness, foreign substance abuse, and truancy are a few characteristics of a bad learner. The word "lazy" is frequently used to describe high school students who do not turn in their homework, study for tests and are constantly ill prepared for class. One form of laziness is the dreaded disease that only affects seniors, "Senioritis."
Sherry, expresses her concern on how students are being handed useless diplomas since they are not being taught the necessary knowledge skills and abilities to help them in the workforce. She goes on to back up her reasoning regarding the broken educational system using a personal example that failing a student would be the best way in motivating that student in having a usable high school diploma. Sherry, voices her disgust on how the educational system allows teachers to pass along students simply because they are good and do not cause any disruptions in the
He says that especially political figures are ignorant, and they complain about kids not doing well in school because they do not support the school system with books and good certified teachers. This explains the attitudes of Mike Rose’s friends in “I Just Wanna be Average,” because they know why they are not receiving a good education and they were not likely to get a good paying job when they graduate. One of these reasons is that they do not feel like they need to try, then why they need school. They just want to fit in and move on. They accepted the fact that they were placed in a very low-grade level in school.
Many high school students do not want to hear the words, “you are going to fail”, but as will be seen that is exactly what they need to hear. In the article, “In Praise of the ‘F’ Word”, Mary Sherry states that students are not getting a good education and teachers should enforce the “F” word, meaning flunk. Sherry argues that students, especially high school seniors, are not getting the proper education they need to succeed, as many do not have the basic academic skills and are not well informed about those skills needed for their lives after high school. Furthermore, teachers should introduce the “F” word to their students and give them the realization of their future being in their hands. There are some high school seniors who do not have
