All teacher's are at least somewhat selfish because of their craving for pleasure

I believe that the reason teachers teach is that they believe that teaching is fun for some reason. I don't think that teachers really care for a students wellbeing academically if that student doesn't care about their own wellbeing. Usually the people that teacher's like are the ones that are easy to teach and easy to work with. For example, 2 students are both good students. Both of them have an A in the class. Student W struggles in the class, And he always asks for help when he needs it. Stu...

American students are in school enough days of the year.

The American education year is far too short. While this may be hard for some to accept, Especially those who are students like myself, Enough time is simply not spent in schools. Even though summer break is being cut shorter and shorter, Creating the illusion of a longer school year, It is simply not the case. School years continuously get shorter, With the addition of more total breaks, Holidays, And "professional development" days, On top of long summer breaks. Scientists have known for y...

Is the College Board a positive force?

The College Board is a highly influential force in today's educational environment. After all, They hold a virtual monopoly on education by controlling the SAT and the AP exams. As a high school student, I have personally seen again and again how the College Board grows stronger. The College Board is a negative force in society. Its educational monopoly and the money it makes off of educational struggle is a plague on society. The fact that the executives at the College Board make millions,...

I think charter schools are not either "good" nor "bad" but are about the best fit for the student, Parent, Or educator. I just wrote an e-book on this topic called "What's the Deal With Charter Schools? " on Amazon Kindle but was curious to hear back from others....

Homework Should be Banned (Final)

Even though that some adults (including my parents) think that homework is needed for more practice and college preparation, I think that homework should be banned because children can spend more time with family, Be less stressed out, And have more time to explore other interests. I see children cry, I see children complain, I see parents and/or teachers yell, And I see everyone cranky, Tired, Upset, Grumpy, And all those words that means unhappy. What causes this negativity you ask? The answer...

High School and Middle School in the US should be reformed

dinachen

I believe that high school and middle school should be reformed. I feel that high school and middle school as of now is useless. If you're not going to college, 96% of the things you learn in high school and middle school are not going to be used in your life. Although doing well in high school would help you get into a better college, High school is really not needed for college. This is because freshman year classes in college are going to teach you as if you know nothing at all about the subj...

Having phones in school can provide a distraction yes, But what is a fire was to occur and the adult could not contact a fire station. " On april 20th 1999, 2 teenagers walk into columbine High school carrying sub- machine guns and homemade bombs intending to do some damage, 13 innocent students were murdered and many more would have been if it weren't for some students and their phones. 1 student hiding for his life called 911 and described the location of the school, And what the murderers loo...
