Summary Across the United States, high school students can encounter a variety of issues that hinder their ability to successfully complete course work to earn the required credits towards graduation. High schools across the United States have an obligation to ensure that students are achieving and receiving a diploma. It is
Most people want peace in life well did you know that sleeping is the most peaceful thing you can do? Just think about how many times you woke up for school and just wanted to sleep a little bit longer well, just imagine if you could sleep two hours longer. A lot of teens have busy schedules and never really have time to get a full 8 hours of sleep. Unfortunately some teens are exhausted of not getting enough sleep and can lead to disease,depression,anxiety,and obesity. Schools should start later because kids need to rest and to stay healthy.
Many elementary and middle schools require students to stay in school unless they’re moving or leaving permanently. However, when students get to high school, many decide to drop out during their junior or senior year. This becomes a problem for students because they won’t receive a full education, which is an important part of everyone’s life. Furthermore, people are arguing that students should be required to stay in school until they are 18. In contrast, it’d be better if students stayed in school until they graduate. Students should stay in school until they graduate because a high school diploma allows students to have a better future, dropping out before graduation leads to problems, and students can always come back to high school to

High school administrations care about the well being of their students. They aim to guide the students in a way that will prepare them for the future ahead of each student. Thus administrations of high school have certain requirements that students must finish before graduating. There is one requirement that
Mandatory Attendance Policies While studying or even registering for a class presents a challenge to some college students, the greatest obstacle remains, going to class. Attending college is supposed to signify a new found freedom to make many important choices regarding education without high school mandatory attendance policies. However, students everywhere are coming to the staggering realization that college is not too different from high school. Teachers still take class roll and students are still expected to be at every class on time. What next, hall monitors in the hall? The time has come for action to be taken. Colleges must abolish mandatory student attendance policies for several reasons to be further discussed.
How would you like it if the lunch lines weren’t so full but your students all had a filled stomach? Well I honestly believe that if you gave only 11th and 12th graders the opportunity to leave campus for lunch and it would make everyone’s
Why? Why is this happening to me? I’m a good student and a decent person, why is it that when I get one bad grade in a class for a single semester, I now have to take summer school to even graduate high school?! Thoughts similar to these will occur
Policy Problem Half of students entering high school in the Los Angeles Unified School District do not graduate. (Institute of the Education Sciences, 2012) Only about ten percent of those students seek or are offered Continuation/adult School to finalize their studies and receive a GED. (Afolayan, 1991) The population of students that will be addressed are those students who were held back to remediate the year and catch up with the rest of their peers. Based on my findings many factors must be considered in order to retain a student from advancing to the next grade. It’s a delicate matter that is only now starting to see local policies in effect that determines who gets retained and under what circumstances. While much of the research only addresses those variables that can be manipulated one must not forget the economic backgrounds these children come from and how that in part affects their overall success in schooling. Societal influences also play a part but policy and reform in the current system should allow leveling the playing field for a more just system. State legislature has been the one left with the task of setting up the procedure for at risk students. The policy on retention in grade school originates from the 1930s. There was a trend up to the 1970s to award social promotion to those students teachers felt would catch up and keep up with their peers the following school year during the summer. Around the eighties there was an urgent need to address the
College Have you thought about you future? Do you want to go to college? Does it cost to much? Robert Birgeneau quoted “ we need strategies that will enable public universities to provide excellent educations for students, without saddling those students with crippling debt.” This is an example of students every year, then students try to pay it off year by year. They can’t afford to pay it because they are trying to take care of families. On the other side of the debate, people believe that everyone should go to college because that can pay it off later, It better just have a college degree, and as long as your motive you can do it. However, It is absolutely important that kids should not have to pay to go to college because it leaves students
As one can see in the past staying in school was mandatory and people were looked down if one did not finish school. Now in days’ students are quick to drop out and more parents are allowing it to happen. The rate of students who attend school and drop- out is tremendously high. As a student who thought about dropping out due to many encounters in life, but chose to stay in school and get an education changed who I am today. After all, each individual has a different perspective of whether high school should be mandatory both know it can only better one self. Attending high school will have challenges along with, but make it worth going for.
Why should students go to school? There are several reasons why kids need to go to school but to me, the top three reasons are getting an education helps you go farther in life, it’s required by the state that you go till you reach a certain age, and it will help you learn social skills and help you be comfortable to talking to people. Although students may not like going to school, it benefits them in the long run. It is important for students to go to school to get an education. Even though some students may not like to go to school it is required that they go. Even though students may not realize it but they also learn social skills by making friends and talking in front of people.
Dropping out of High School Will negatively affect a student's future. Bob Keeshan once said,”Children don't drop out of High School when they are 16 they do so in the first grade and wait 10 years to make it official.” Throughout the years studies have shown that in a year
A dear friend of mine has faced one of the hardest struggles in the world. She has lost a friend, that she would have done anything for, to suicide. However, she was not able to attend the funeral. California High School has strict rules when it comes to attendance. If a student misses more than 16 hours of school, the equivalent of two days, they will no longer be eligible for Held harmless. Held harmless is an exemption from all final exams, so naturally all students strive to keep their eligibility. Held harmless should be modified so students do not have to miss important life events such as: funerals, orthodontist appointments, and doctor appointments.
