School is a step to success; getting students to come together more and become antisocial but abolishing class is not what should pass along with giving days off and doing away with curriculum is not the answer to helping children. This will not help but only hurt them for the future and hurt our country they will not be prepared and will be lazy. Parents and adults need to help motivate children they can not do it themselves as holt says we should we need guidence. School is a chance before reality where mistakes are allowed and one 's judgment is tested along with responsibility, discipline and moral
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.
There may be many congress members who were educated during ‘GenMe’ and they will go against such changes. Faludi states “Go back an... ... middle of paper ... ...used on the self-esteem. It always praises them even though they do something wrong and use only positive words to avoid hurting them. However, this is wrong because they could have reached maximum efficiency by teaching them to be more independent and help them to find the way to improve their talents. Students do not know about the real society and the real working environment and even their college life because simply school does not give chances to learn about them.
No matter who you are, it is safe to assume that everyone would agree helping their community is an important thing. Society does not run without people who are willing to help one another and put other people before themselves. However, a big factor of volunteer work is that it should be, in fact, voluntary. The idea of this school adopting a policy that would require all students to complete 100 hours of community service before graduation sounds like a good idea at first glance, but careful thought reveals that this may not be the best way to get high school students involved in their community. Forcing students to complete community service hours is not a good idea because it can negatively impact their health, it creates a pattern of episodic
Adults do not find value in education, but they encourage their children to try and find value in area the adults do not. Children have caught on to this and decided the absolute best option for them to success is to flee the classroom setting and surround themselves in the world where they can learn firsthand the steps to become successful. The societal influence cultivates children more effectively than the classroom
After going through high school and now being in college, I have realized that high school can be sort of a joke because it often does not fill its mission. High schools waste students valuable time, on drilling unimportant information and enforcing pointless rules. Students should use that time to be getting educated for the real world and not to just pass a test. Although preparing for standardized testing is very important, schools need to focus on educating students on how the world works. Many aspects go into creating an effective high school program.
Being Schooled on the Cons of Homeschooling “Adults who were homeschooled often reference extreme social awkwardness as an obstacle they experienced upon entering college or the workforce.” (Whelan). Homeschooling may be a beneficial alternative to public and private schooling, but when the facts are shown and the first hand experiences are dealt with, it is understood that homeschooling has a negative impact. There are many different reasons as to why homeschooling a student can impact their skills in both an educational way and a personal way. Students should not be homeschooled because students who are typically miss out on obtaining skills that are needed in order to advance in the real world. A skill that is needed to advance in the
Intelligent or genius students have to be in that system of education, which doesn’t let them improve their creativity. Educators attempt to change that system to make it better, but their changing was not that great to be an example for the world. Also, did that change qualify education system to compete other systems or not? In some examples and reasons have been made me agree with some of points from Gatto’s and Edmunson’s and disagree them. John Taylor Gatto, in his essay “Against School: How Public Education Cripples our Kids, and why”, argues that the contemporary purpose of education in public schools is to produce “harmless electorate,” “a servile labor force,” and “mindless consumers” (28).
Students Enemy Going to college makes your future less complicated, yet there are a bunch of reasons why students drop out. The number one reason is because school is not interesting and can be hell to some students. There is many ways to keep a student from succeeding. To help America become a better place, they need the next generation to overcome any obstacle and it depends on those students that are in school at this very moment. In order to capture a student’s interest and help them succeed it would be best to have them feel at ease by understanding what keeps them from accomplishing their goals in life.
Although the student will be successful the students will have already forgotten about his family. With the load of homework and complex material students are learning; close minded parents are having a hard time connecting with their children. This just goes on to prove Gregg Andrew correct when he states, “Every bit of learning takes you further from your parents” (Lubrano 581). It is a shock that college will corrupt families, since it is seen as the tool to be a successful family person. When in reality it will make a person successful, but as far the family goes it will have to be post aside.
