How School Affects Students
School affects students! This is a matter of life. It may affect them in a positive way or it may affect them in a negative way. Nonetheless, school plays a major part in the way a student’s life goes both in and outside of school.
School definitely has a financial effect on students, especially if you’re going to university and living in accommodation. Let’s not forget that you have to pay for books, stationery, travel etc. There are many expenses incurred by students which plays on their mind. Sometimes these expenses are so great that it affects their well being and their state of mind when in the classroom. For example, if a student cannot afford to pay for lunch, they will be feeling hungry for the whole day and will not be able to concentrate for the exams.
The mental effects of being in education is definitely a cause for concern for students, teachers and parents. The emotional turmoil which children endure whilst being in education is sometimes too much to handle and can result in that particular child not fulfilling their potential. The expectation to succeed in exams based on your memory is a huge weight and it can send students into depression. I personally believe that exams are a memory test rather than a measure for intelligence and the comparison between students themselves is the root cause of becoming mentally ill.
Have you ever been late to school? I’m sure you have! This is probably because you slept late the previous night because you had to get some work done. Physically, school can be hell. One day you may sleep 6 hours but the next, you may only get 1 and now you’re dependent on fizzy drinks. Don’t let school dictate when you sleep! Have a revised schedule and stick to it. Make sure you complete your work in the allocated slot and then you will have enough time to sleep every single night. Never try and complete your work at night because your sleep will be disturbed and you will not feel good the next morning.
