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.
Some of the work handed out should not need to be graded. From the same article it brings up the fact that people including teachers and students often forget what an A or a B stand for. The primary function of grades is to communicate mastery of performance and today they do anything but that. Grades do not provide meaningful feedback for improvement or growth to parents and students, which does not help both of them. The needs of the student needs to be at the forefront of the conversation and for this to happen we need individual one-on-one teaching with a parent to help students learn (Crouch).
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
Parents who put their kids in co-education schools are not thinking about their children’s future and their education closely enough. Co-education is hurting children because they are not focusing on them. They only focus on their lesson plans, they do not focus on the different strategies that students need to learn. Single-sex schools have more opportunities than Co-ed schools. Co-ed schools do not give their students the tools they need to be an advanced student.
Lack of family involvement is the one thing that matters the most because if a parent shows no interest in their children’s education the child will show no interest either. The controversial issue that occurs in school settings that I consider important are standardized testing, bullying, and lack of family involvement. Standardized testing caters to one population of people and one style of learning. These tests are supposed to measure if you are on your grade level but can be extremely ineffective. I remember taking the SAT and them asking questions that I did not know how to solve and it was so long that it made me not want to take it.
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.
These presumptions have been calamitous to the education system in light of the fact that they don't represent favoritism of schools in the edification system. For instance, schools that have profoundly taught educators, advanced material, and suitable facilities can give more to the learner than those that don't. How then can schools be required to be evaluated the same on the off chance that they are not the same? By dismissing the education of American youngsters, and not giving an equivalent thorough training to each person in every school, social order is setting them up for failure. More people will drop out of school because of failing grades in light of the fact that schools are equipping them for government sanctioned tests, and not giving a thorough training that shows them how to utilize their education, other than a test taken yearly.
When students work hard all year only to find out they do not have to exceed expectations on a test, it eventually causes them to stop trying as hard. Because of the difference in classroom learning and the STARR, students cannot correctly adjust to the different learning process that comes with taking the test. Even though state tests are supposed to follow the same curriculum as the class room, they do not and cause problems for both teachers and students. While some may argue, students need to experience new learning habits, they would not agree if it were their children stressing for weeks before and after taking the test. At the end of the day, it is up to the parents and teaches to get rid of state mandated tests seeing as students have no power against it.
Another critical point to highlight is the transition to the elementary school to middle school when the school changes the system of having only one teacher to have several teachers and rotations classrooms and colleagues. Sometimes the children do not adapt to this change and drop out of school. The type of school that the child and adolescent attending and the type of teacher they also have are crucial factors for student follows or not in school. As previously mentioned the school environment should be welcoming to the student. If the school is extremely rigid and not provide freedom for the student can feel the will to expose your ideas or even discuss (with discipline and respect) someone’s ideas in class, this school will not be a place where the student liked to spend half his day.
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.
