Hello, I am going to be a sophomore this year, and I believe that the education system needs to change. The most visual problems that I have encountered include
1.) Homework: Students receive too much homework. It is unnecessary, and disrupts time for students to unwind and practice a healthy, well balanced lifestyle. My resolution is to limit the time of homework a student can receive from all classes in one day (30 mins max), so it is just a review to keep the lessons sharp.
2.) Subjects taught: This freshman year, what I was taught was not aligned with other classes. For example, I learned about carbs, fats, and proteins in FOUR different classes and was "over-educated", while some very difficult subjects (ex: trigonometry) were only surfaced in a short amount of time, causing me to not perform as well.
3.) Teacher grading: An idea I have seen a ton of times is students honestly grading their teachers. Many teachers don't seem to put in full effort to their teaching, causing students to stray from the class. If teachers get consistent positive, or consistent negative grades from students of the classes, beneficial actions could be carried out.
Do you agree with these opinions, and/or do you have others to build on that could help the system? I plan on talking to my principal with my ideas, and possibly teachers too. Thanks!
