The delicacy of students
Jasauni Mckinney, Division 2, 12th grade #ws18e-s3d2

There would be an abundant number of things that I would like to do to make my school an or education better but I would need to start off with things that would not just benefit me but everyone at the school so if I could change it I would: make sure everyone understands what they are doing, get the right help kids need if they are not progressing as well or as far as they would like, and all in all just make school something kids would want to come to so they don’t come to school thinking that I a chore or a burden they have to carry for twelve or more years.

As a high school student, myself I would tend to struggle with some things that the teachers would be teaching me. Some teachers would just fly by problems or just write it down on the board and expect you to know it. The teachers that genuinely would want to help cannot help as much as they want because they have over three hundred more kids that they need to teach to as well. I think kids would benefit if teachers would slow down a little bit and go step by step, but they don’t, so I purpose that we can have study groups or classes just meant for this certain problem. If kids feel like no one wants to help them then why would they try to better their education. If kids need help, then why charge them for tutoring. What if they ca not afford it. Someone who really cares about students would not put a price on helping a child achieve their goals and aspirations.

The next thing I would do to make my education and school better is to make sure that everyone is progressing at the right speed that you want. One thing that school can come down on is school assessments. How do you expect kids to want to make things better? As a student that’s just come out of school I know if there were less assessments and teachers were less controlled in what they taught us then everyone would learn ALOT less. I think reducing the amount of assessments slightly is ideal and modelling our education system around what trades and universities are looking for and are like would be more ideal. I also think that what teachers teach students should be more standard across the board and they should be checked MORE often because teachers make the biggest difference to a student’s education. Teachers should be paid more, and the role should be more highly valued and sort after. I don’t think it would be fair to have teachers that do not value their role in teaching and they are just there to get paid and that’s it. How are teachers teaching if they just want to get through the day to get paid?

Most students are bored at school. School can be a real yawn. Two out of three high-school students in a large survey say they are bored in class every single day. About 30 percent of the students indicate they are bored due to lack of interaction with teachers. School and education would be so much better if we had teachers that got up and interacted with us, so we can understand what is going on instead of sitting there looking at a white board while the teacher lectures for ninety minutes straight. When students get home they automatically go home and want to go to sleep or they say I can’t wait for school to be over even though it just started like it’s a burden. I would make the school better and less chore like if we have class swaps as well. Going to different classes that teach the same subject and interacting with new adults and kids and not just passively but actively learning as well.

Aforementioned, I believe that if you: make sure everyone understands what they are doing, get the right help kids need if they are not progressing as well or as far as they would like, and all in all just make school something kids would want to come to so they don’t come to school thinking that I a chore or a burden they have to carry for twelve or more years. Teachers who form strong relationships with their students and show that they care about them as people. They are warm, enthusiastic and caring. Teachers with these qualities are known to stay after school and make themselves available to students and parents who need them. That is the most important thing that we need to make our education and school the best that it can be.
