  1. The money earned a year from a high school graduate dropped from $435,000 to $243,000. It said that people that were born in 1960 to 1964 and graduated from college earned a median of $802,000.
  2. Having better grades are linked to a better probability of going to graduate school and earning another advanced degree.
  3. The correlation between high school grades and overall educational attainment was strongest for minorities. They are more motivated to finish school and advance their education.

School Enrollment

1. I think the reason is that everybody is way more strict in the school now. It said that the school went from a charter school to a military institute.
2.There was a lot of kids that didn't attend school. Now that they changed it into a military style school more kids go. Now more students attend school.
3. To me it is important because if we can't be responsible in school and when you are you it is going to be hard when you are an adult.

School and Social Media

          In my personal opinion, I think it is necessary for Post Secondary Schools to look at your social media pages to see what you have posted. Say that if I were to post a picture or video of me drinking or doing something bad they probably wouldn't accept me.
          I really do agree with the statement "Sometimes kids are worried more about being a character than having character. Sometimes in the middle of class, I would talk while the teacher is talking laughing and telling jokes when the teacher is teaching.
          Some rules in high school like don't interrupt in the middle of a presentation or when the teacher is talking. Those rules help you become respectful and if you want a really good job when you are at a meeting and some of your co-workers are giving a presentation those same rules from high school apply to that situation. The high school is preparing us for future jobs or schooling so when you get out you will probably know what you want to be or do. I asked on of my teachers that "Why do we learn this stuff if you probably won't need to know it in the future. My teacher said that "High school is giving you a taste of every subject so you would have an idea of what you would like to learn in college."

  2. The two markets are secondary and retail market.
  3. I would resell and buy soccer cleats and indoor soccer shoes.

  1. The genre is about fiction stories.
  2. It is cause and effect because it says that if Disney says they are going to do what it says in the article it would affect Netflix.
  3. The self-driving cars interest me the most because I want to know how are they going to build it and how are they going to program the car.

  1. Nonfiction is based on real events and facts.
  2. We shifted away from those things because most kids won't use poetry in their life in the future.
  3. This article is about Disney putting more movies and shows on Netflix. I chose it because it was the first one I saw.

Television's Impact on Society

              The average American watches t.v. at least 4 hours and 51 minutes a day. What people are wondering is how do people have time to come up with new shows and new episodes. T.V. is made so people would be entertained and not bored. It is also for the news so people can know what is happening around the world or in their own city. Television can be educational too. Some parents put on kid shows for their children so they can learn the alphabet and numbers. Television has a positive impact on society.
