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
Time that can be better spent is with family and having fun participating in extracurricular activities. Eliminating homework allows students the reward of free time and the invaluable time spent with family. Homework creates unnecessary stress and strain for parents and students alike. Also, homework allows teachers to pawn off their own teaching responsibilities to students and parents with hours of homework. Homework is not beneficial and it should be banned for students Kindergarten thru 8th grade.
In order for any youth to find a job they need their education and staying away from school cannot help that. There is punishment for every wrong action that a student may do, but keeping them away from school for a long period of time does not fix the situation because they end up missing work. Some students do not take the full advantage of public education. Maybe because of the simple fact that it is free they feel as if they can fool around with it. According to Gatto, "We have been taught (that is, schooled)
Likewise, we cannot be suspending and expelling students at the drop of a hat because what they did may fall into a gray area, yes there are times when it is needed, but school administrators need to take the time to step back and look at the situation and stop overreacting (Wison, 2014). Suspension and expulsion results in missed classroom time, causing some students to fall so far behind they stop caring about the school work and drop out. Other students are being forced into the criminal justice system ending up with records that can haunt them for life. Eliminating the school-to-prison pipeline will allow these students who are likely to fall into its trap to be able to have a change at a successful life (Wison,
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.
The website also suggests that when the bullying cannot be controlled by the school, the department of justice civil rights division may be able to help. I believe that if a law against bullying is passed, more kids are going to come forward and report it. As of today, kids being bullied may think that nothing is going to happen, so why bother telling someone. Furthermore, in many cases the victims are the ones asked to stay away from the bulliers. The idea that kids should be allowed to be kids, and that kids who are bullied learn to be self-reliant is erroneous.
This area is one in which the need for partnership between school and family is greatest. While many schools provide successful alternative programs or absenteeism intervention strategies, there will be cases where, despite the best efforts of schools and parents, the children stay away. It is clear that any unauthorized absence is of concern because of the valuable educational time which is lost and because the absence of some children is associated with inappropriate behavior in the community. Different types of absenteeism will be discussed during this essay but the main focus will be directed at truancy in which the causes and remedies will be evaluated. The different types of absenteeism is truancy, exclusion, school closure, school phobia or other absences due to illness or bad behavior (teachers sending pupils out of class due to poor behavior).
Some teachers do not allow any talking during class at all, even when students are just working independently. Students need to be able to collaborate with each other to help each other out and create new ideas. If a student says something that the teacher does not like the teacher can punish the student, an example of this is the case of Bethel v. Fraser; Matthew Fraser gave a speech to the school that contained offensive and sexual references and then officials at the school then punished him for saying those things (What are the free expression rights of students in public schools under the First Amendment?). The teacher can also send that student to the principal and the punishment could end up being suspension or expulsion. An example of this is one of my good friends was in his PE class a couple weeks ago, his teacher said something that he did not like.
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
Unfortunately, many do not have the means to do so and may fall victim to peer pressure or bullying.” (Tucker) This proves that even with school uniforms bullying will not decrease and will still come up in certain schools because of the diverse people and the cliques in the school. In conclusion, uniforms should be banned or not allowed at any school because they are a big waste of money for parents and even schools that support school uniforms. The money that would be saved could be put to better use by hiring more guidance counselors for bully problems. Furthermore, eliminating school uniforms will help creativity in the school. It will help students express themselves and make more friends.
