Students improve grades by spending more time studying Jgx Workshop tO be held
One of the '90s most frequently
asked questions is, "Why do Ameri
can students lag so far behind their
counterparts in other countries?"
According to the 22nd Annual Sur
vey of High Achievers, conducted
by Who's Who Among American
High School Students, one reason is
that more than half of America's best
high school students, 56 percent,
study less than seven hours per week
- less than one hour a day - while only
21 percent study more than 1 1 hours
per week. And these are A and B
"It's no mystery why our students
are falling behind students in other
countries," stated Paul Krouse, pub
lisher of Who's Who Among Ameri
can High School Students. "They
spend 30 percent less time in school
than their peers in other western de
mocracies and they aren't being
challenged by soft curricula."
While students feel there are
problems in our education system,
they don't feel their own schools are
at fault. Nearly three-quarters (73
percent) say Japan's education sys
tem is stronger than ours, but almost
the same percentage (75 percent) rate
the quality of education at their own
school as excellent or good. While
55 percent express great concern
about the condition of public educa
tion in the United States, only 38
percent of public school students
would select a different school if
given thechoice. If they had to choose
another school, more than 61 percent
of the public school students would
choose another public school.
The students give their own
teachers very mixed grades when
asked to rank their qualifications.
Although 68 percent say most of
their teachers know the subject matter
and 60 percent say most of their
tpnrhers annear to cniov their work,
only 36 percent say most of their
teachers know how to teach and less
than 23 percent say most of their
teachers make class interesting.
Nearly half of the students (49 per
cent) say only some of their teachers
communicate well, and an almost
equal percentage (48 percent) say
only some of their teachers make
them work harder.
So what is the solution to our lack
of success in the classroom? Ac
cording to those surveyed, raising
student's and teacher's expectations
and standard would improve the
overall quality of education in their
schools. Although three-quarters (75
percent) say a longer school year
would not improve the quality of
education they receive, 83 percent
think more rigorous professional
