Summer School for Grade Improvement
Today when the things around us are changing so fast, so are the courses our children are doing. It is all about information, technology and speed. A course done today may not be that relevant tomorrow. Therefore, it becomes all the more important to do "that extra effort" for making their mark in this highly competitive world. Summer schools is the answer to all such queries as giving your children an edge over their peers, improving their grades or just keeping them busy during summer holidays.
Summer schools are schools that operate during the summer holidays usually sponsored by a school or a school district. There are different type of summer schools--educational, sports, adventure or technology. Summer schools help the children to retain what they have during the previous year otherwise it would be difficult to proceed further, thus giving them an edge over other students in their class. Summer schools keep the children updated, fit and active and the best part about attending these summer schools is education with fun in an relaxed environment which children really enjoy.
There are various reasons when a student should attend "Summer Schools".
- Make up for the missed classes due to illness or any other reason.
- For improving their grades to get admission in to a good college.
- Or, just to expedite the process of getting the degree.
The idea behind such schools is to help the academically weaker students to help them improve their grades. But of late, these schools have become money oriented and charge very high fees therefore, it has become almost impossible for the economically weaker students to attend these schools. The gap between the poor students and their economically well off peers would increase, and would increase to such an extent that it will become almost impossible to bridge the gap.
Though parents can help their children to make up by enrolling them in library, book clubs, or other cheaper options. These options are almost free or charge negligible fee. It is important that no child should loose just because his or her parents aren’t financially well off.
Summer schools play an important role in bridging the achievement gap and preparing children for admission in a good college or a professional career.
