Opposing Views: Switching courses - Choice of courses key to futureWednesday, March 28, 2012 By Danielle Kobriger
Choosing classes is something every high school student has to do. The classes each student chooses will affect their future, especially what courses they will have to take in college. But, sometimes, a student ends up with an alternate class that they didn’t really want or one that’s not going to be beneficial to their chosen career. I t hink students should be allowed to change classes. If a course is not going to be beneficial in the future, then what is the point in taking it ? A lso, if a student is not interested in a course, then they probably won’t put forth their best effort. I f they’re not trying their hardest, then parents and teachers might become concerned, and in the long run, it might affect the student’s GPA. A nd if that grade lowers the student’s GPA enough, it might affect which college they get into . So, in the end, switching courses to something the student is truly interested in or one that will be beneficia l for their future career is for the best .
