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.
Testing and labelling students through testing detracts from students who many not test well but with classroom instruction can exceed the goals. My sister, Sarah is a perfect example of the testing. Sarah did ... ... middle of paper ... ... accepted into STEM was a priviledge being a part of a social community of extremely smart and average students. The program is controversial since many students who are qualified for STEM are not accepted and often students who are accepted into STEM are unprepared receiving poor grades, cannot keep up with the coursework and often revert back to the regular high school program. The placement of students who are ill prepared for the STEM program is not beneficial to the student social leaving a feeling of failure and a lot to make up since the coursework in STEM is different.
What happens when students hear this new mode of grading and stop trying? What is the challenge of going to school and working hard, if they do not have to make sure they get all of their school work done to pass? Teachers will not need to try so hard to get their lecture through to their audience. Although allowing the no zero rule helps children in many ways, it hurts them in more ways. In society there are no grading scales, no one is going to give these young students an easy pass.
In addition, students must not able to graduate high school if they cannot write a single decent essay. The institution is responsible for enabling students to be able to write if they cannot do so already. A lack of this skill among students shows that schools are not developing capable young adults. Moreover, a high school diploma has little value if the students holding it cannot even meet the basic standards of writing. Students may still perform well in school
In this way, we come across the student who never seems to have their work done or never has time to work on their work.

Though not always negative, high school relationships are also not likely to have a drastically positive impact on students either. Levels of stress in life can be at their peak during years of development, though it may seem daunting, not all are incapable of balancing a relationship and life. Nevertheless, having a relationship, the stress to succeed in within the relationship, and the stress to not become the main topic of gossip for their peers in what should have been a private matter may magnify the pressures of everyday life.
Although going to college provides many opportunities for success, many students do not perform to the best of their potential. Often times, students only do enough to get by. But where does this problem start? The problem starts with the curriculum in the classrooms. If the curriculum included tests to be distributed on a more frequent basis, students would excel on a higher level of learning.
Schools can give responsibility to students but never without a cost. Students should have to chance to prove their worth to schools and show how responsible they can be as adults. When students go to college classes as high schoolers they sometimes tend to have more free time during those times. If a child has enough responsibility to take those classes they should have enough to leave school and be trusted to come back to school after their free time is over. Although leaving school early is not something that is smiled upon it should be because some students are ahead and can work their schedule to allow extra time because of hard work in early years.

Some do not realize the importance that imagination has. Any person can absorb information, some better than others, but it is those who can apply it to real life problems that truly make a difference is society. Albert Einstein is often seen as the smartest man to ever live. This was not because his vast knowledge, actually quite the opposite as he failed his college entrance exams.
Many students have a life outside of school. Work, taking care of children, and even doing the shopping for home, can be daily jobs of high school students, which leaves little time to do homework. According to my teacher Mr. Ross, Streamwood High School is one of the many schools, which is below state standards. Even though a lot of homework is given, end results are not excellent. Most students go on with their lives and do not care if an assignment is finished, so there is no improvement upon the students’ grades.
Phrases such as: you are better than that, is that all you can do?, or even trying to cancel an important event for the student may cause negative response in one being the motivation they put into school. Seems... ... middle of paper ... ...dents to return. It will also give them less reason to day dream or zone out. As to procrastinators it's a matter of them to have will power to put things aside that distract them from school work such as t.v, music, maybe even friends. The problem is students have way to much time in their hands and decide not to invest it in something that actually matters.Two ways of fixing the problem of bad schools would be, removing the student out of the school and making your voice be heard.
