It is true that the way students get their good grades might be a bit sneaky and inappropriate, but saying students do not put effort into their ... ... middle of paper ... ...are expected to do well in their GE classes to meet the standard. As a result, students are scared that they cannot maintain their grades so they have to cheat to meet the requirements to get in their major. People tend to blame students for being lazy and do not take school seriously.
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 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)
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.
They interfere with the students’ learning process and do not prepare them for the real world. Awards are resulting in uninterested, non-creative, disrespectful students and the consequences only going to get worse in the future. There are other methods to use instead of rewards, such as, encouraging words to let the students know they are doing things the right way. Having good grades is the only award students should be receiving in the classroom; that is the main reason that they are in school. They should be proud of how well they do in school.
However, some students also say, “I’m not smart enough” or “My work isn’t good enough.” They should do their best and ask for help instead of cheating, since the main goal in school is to learn. Some students don 't know exactly what plagiarism is. Teachers should gently go over the subject and teach what it is, but ignorance is never an excuse. Some students don’t know how to properly cite their papers. Just like not knowing what plagiarism is, ignorance is not an excuse.
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.
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.
As a result, students consistently fail the EOC’s because of the lack of preparation and thought of the teachers. In order for most students to get passing grades, often teachers always curve the grades, so they are not embarrassed and look like they were not teaching anything. To make the tests a success for the students, teachers should be able to make their own end of course exams because they know what they have taught and how they have taught
They possess the wisdom needed to guide and assist students as tantrums, drama, and fights occur. Not many people acquire that trait throughout a lifetime, the ability to remain calm in the heat of the storm, so having that is gift worth recognizing. Teachers are also forced to put up with a lack of effort from students, and discovering ways to motivate an unmotivated person is quite difficult. Not only that, but teachers also strive to turn a student’s weaknesses into strengths. It takes a special human to not give up on a child, especially one that isn’t even related, but that’s why the world needs teachers, people that won’t give
