In the article titled “ Are field trips a good way to spend school district funds?” written by Lillian Mongeau on May 12,2015 talk exactly what the title says that if school should spend more funds on a field trip then before. This article has both positions in why the school should and shouldn't spend more money on taking the student on a field trips. Here is one reason for each side 1. Student gain more knowledge 2. Students don't really care and its a waste of class time.The thing is that schools should spend more funds on taking the student on field trip because some are in the poverty class so they won't get to experience that with their family, they'll get to see what they learned in the classroom in real life if they're taken to museums and places like that, and lastly they'll always remember those trips and be able to have good memories. Students should be taken to more field trips so they can experience what they're learning in the classroom. A student of 17 in age named Tiffany said “Im a hands-on learner” she said that because when she would attend field trips be able to do activities on what they were learning in class and would actually like the subject they were teaching and get her attention even more.They'll also learn more because some haven't even entered a museum and would be there first time and …show more content…
Which is true, it does cut from class time, but the things are there still learning being hands on and out of classroom that where a lot of students learn more and actually enjoy it. The second part it's also true expensive, but that why there should be more funds since most kids are in poverty, they cant tell their parents to take them and they'll never experience it that why there should be more funds so kids that don't have the advantage of it can have a chance to actually experience attending a field

    Students getting paid to go to school sounds like an amazing incentive for the students and majority of parents, but for some teachers, it’s an outrageous idea. Students shouldn’t get paid for something they are expected to do, especially if it will help them in the future to actually work for what they will earn. Imagine being a parent of a 15-year-old child who comes home with one hundred dollars just from making straight A’s on his/her report card. With that money he/she could start saving for college. Who wouldn’t want their child to bring home money without having to actually go out and find a job?…

    Finding out why this school system is like this seems impossible, but there is a desperate need for change. Not only is the long schooling system a waste of time but it is also a waste of money. Half of a person’s life is spent going to school just to get a good enough degree to get a job. If the school system was thought through more the plan should have had children starting harder material earlier in life when they learn the best. Also, starting to…

    The benefits have shown to not only aid children, but teachers as well. Material covered is greatly impacted by the size of the class. Children need to be learning as much as they can in the first few years of school, and this is not possible in an overcrowded classroom. The cost may be considerable to reduce class size, but will only positively impact the future of the United States. Ignorance and poor education is not worth saving the money it costs to reduce classroom size.…

    The world competes for jobs, and only well studied kids come on top to snag the better, more well paying jobs while kids who were not motivated to do any work in school whatsoever end up with low paying jobs. Some teachers do not come to school motivated to actually teach and make their kids learn. Simply stating a lesson and expecting them to understand is a very wrong and incorrect way to teach in a high school workplace. This is where they should be learning. The teachers job, believe it or not, is to help students understand and learn what they will need to know in the future, especially in small public schools, this gives rise to more possibilites to learn when the teacher can communicate with you much easier.…

    It’s time that we come up with a better plan, a better understanding of things, and an easier way to help out our children. Having them stress so much about one big test and having it to determine if they have a chance to get their diploma or not, it’s not fair at all. It’s time for a change and in fact FCAT is a part of that. The main effect of FCAT is the dropout rate starting to rise which makes it impossible for most kids to graduate, get good grades, attend college, and also cause embarrassment. Graduation play’s a huge role in most children’s lives, but sometimes it’s hard to reach that goal when it’s hard for the kid’s to focus.…

    In school all of my guidance counselors stress the importance of having public service hours when applying to colleges. Well what happens when every student coming into college has community service hours? Students that have a passion for aiding the community will no longer have the upper hand because their hours will be matched by kids that simply do not care about their service. Many students will either complete meaningless jobs such as sharpening pencils, and restocking books at a library, or have their hours forged. There will be no significance in having hours, because no matter the quality of the project every student is expected to have the…

    Paying for grades also causes pressure on teachers to inflate grades that don't deserve to be a high grade. Paying students is not good idea because the student will lose their love for learning, they won't remember what they have learned, and school becomes more of a business transaction then a place to learn and grow. First of all, students should not be paid for grades because it takes away the child's natural love for learning. Research by Edward Deci and others shows, “ children, by nature, are motivated to learn … Promise of eternal reward, and the child's natural love for learning might be dampened”.This shows that when you give money for good grades,the child will become greedy and not be thankful that they are getting an education at a good school. Once awards are taken away, the student…

    Maybe some school can provide more school uniforms for students that can’t afford school clothing at all. More money can also go towards the school when parents save money on uniforms rather than regular school clothes. Some of the money going towards the school can help the students in need or for their parents that can’t afford buying school clothes. Some people think many families only can have money to send their kids to school, if they have uniforms than its more money than other clothes. “So if we have school uniforms that it will be a burden and they will be bulled because there cheap and expensive uniforms and bulling will go up”.…

    First, they will get penalized for missing so many school days by either detention or in school suspension. Then they have to do makeup work as well as the current assignments. By this time, it is almost impossible for these students to catch up which will result in them having to repeat the school year and restarting this pattern. My role would first be to grab the family’s attention and see the value of their child and the child’s education. By doing this, I would not have to worry about the student falling behind.…
