It doesn’t make them bad kids, or even bad students. Drop-outs report that some of the main reasons they drop out of school is not seeing value in the work they do. Almost half of them said the classes were not interesting, and were bored of their work, and say it’s among the main reasons students would stop attending classes (Furger “How to End the Dropout Crisis”). Expectations also tend to run high for students by their teachers. Regular students in school also debate to themselves to make the decision of dropping out from time to time, from the stress levels of piling assignments.
Many parents were upset that their children would spend so many hours in school and began to change their schools. This hurt because our numbers declined and additional money was cut from the budget. At the end of the year the school grade did not increase. Another year it was tried and again the same results. The policy was finally cut because student performance did not
In the year 2008 the economic collapse there was a $469 million cut. With this cut for the educational system it created a large drop in funds for each individual school. Also with the low funding there are job cuts, so there are less teachers and administrators to be able to help every student. The student teacher ratio is going up with the cost cuts creating too many students per teacher, this creates an issue with the No Child Left Behind Act, the teacher does not have enough time to assure that each and every student understands the information given. Also with the budgets teachers end up getting salary cuts and this creates issues and their push to teach as well as before.
There is a demand for teachers in the work force and with a more difficult working environment; it could turn people off from that profession. In my high school, we had teachers who were referred to as “floaters” because they didn’t have a classroom of their own and had to keep all their belongings on a cart and push it into a designated room for their next class as a result of overpopulation. Too large of a class also affects the teacher because with more students, the chances of students misbehaving are increased. A large classroom is not horrible, but is not as effective or as useful as a smaller class size. There are many short-term and long-term positive affects of small class sizes.
Another reason as to why large class sizes cause a lack of individual attention, from Seaman High School Students’ perspectives, is because when they go to receive help from their teacher, before or after school, or during seminar, it could take an hour to figure out one problem due to so many other kids getting help. Along with feeling a lack of individual attention, students have also noticed other negative effects of being in a larger class rather than a smaller
Social, educational, and physical changes can put a lot of stress on middle and high school students, which is why these years are usually regarded as the worst for students. It is not uncommon for students to lack the motivation that is necessary in order to succeed in school. Students spend the majority of their lives in school, so if they do not have the desire to succeed, then they are putting their futures in jeopardy. During these years, students begin to shape their new identities, which will continue to form as they become adults. It is normal for adolescents to experience confusion and rebel against the norms of society, which is something that middle school and high school teachers should expect.
This very often causes a decrease in these students GPA and consequently increases the number of dropouts in the long run. Other times, it will take these students double the time to complete their degrees. Students are faced to deal with these problems when deciding whether continuing their education is the right choice. In today’s competitive climate, there is no time to waste. The US as a nation is being left behind by other governments that have focused on funding education.
It has always remained the same way as it began many years ago. The situation is a pot of water which has just began to boil, and we need to find a way to cool it down. States need to raise taxes to create a basis to build the financial aid system on from scratch. Many people may be against raising taxes, but if we do not find a way to get these young men and women into the classroom, we will regret it in the future when the majority of people cannot afford to go to a four year institution. These people will be poorly educated when they enter the workforce, compared to the graduates of today.
Education is the key to fulfillment in one’s life and the economy. With education, a person is qualified and has a better chance for employment. College can become very stressful as a result of many factors like schoolwork overload, little financial assistance, and the need to work instead of going to class. These factors can cause a student to dropout of college and not finish their coursework. Students usually dropout around the second semester of their first year or mid-semester of their second year.
Most campuses have reduced student enrollment to compensate for these cuts, thus making it harder for students to enroll for classes in order to complete their educational goals. Furthermore, rising tuition prices have left students scrambling to come up with the funds necessary to pay for their college education. Some students are having to borrow money from family and friends because loan companies won't help with last-minute rising tuition costs. In addition, others already with full-time schedules are having to apply for full-time jobs in order to off-set their tuition. Others are dropping out all together because they can no longer afford their education.
