Should Seniors be Allowed to Skip School? - ... At this point in their life, students have already passed their exams and met all of the other requirements for graduation. A strict policy on attendance during the last month of their endeavors is to negate the hard work that they have done up to this point. It is like saying to them, "You have worked hard and the school is proud of you, but you are now going to be treated as if you failed." Not being able to participate in graduation exercises not only has a significant impact on the student socially and emotionally, it could affect their future educational and job prospects, particularly if someone looks up the record and asks why they were not allowed to participate....   [tags: attendance, high school, policy] 760 words

Public School Choice Improves Student Achievement - School Choice Improves Student Achievement In his new budget, President Obama proposed to substantially increase federal spending to improve public schools. Yet steady spending increases of the last three decades resulted in little change in the poor achievement of students that worries many citizens. Much research, however, shows that what works well is parental choice among schools fairly competing for students as in the case of traditional, tuition-based private schools. Rigorous studies comparing students randomly selected or not to oversubscribed private and charter schools as well as large, statistically controlled surveys show that these schools excel in achievement and parental sati...   [tags: Education Reform, ] 812 words

Vouchers and School Choice Beats No Choice - School Choice Beats No Choice I am avidly in favor of school choice for two main reasons. First, no child should be locked into attending an inadequate school, lacking quality and diversity, which under the current system is rewarded for its failure. Secondly, children and parents who hold strong convictions concerning their academic and social objectives need latitude in order to place themselves in an environment which will maximize their learning success. The ideal choice program, in my opinion, would comprise vouchers, drawn from the child's home district and not exceeding the average amount spent locally per student....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 833 words
