I believe student should be forced to go to ASI because it will teach them how important responsibility is. If someone isn't responsible enough to do there homework, then how do you expect they will be able to find a job and start a life later on? By sending students to ASI, they are learning that they should do what they are told. This also gives students the time to do the homework/worksheet, so they will definitely complete it and can get help if needed.

Th problem with that is some students are showing that they need help. They just flat out don't care. the same students mostly go to ASI. Nt all students but most.

You can get help during Cain time, before school, and during class.

They have mornings to go to their teacher, not just taking an ASI because they don't know how to do it.

Side: Yes

Students should be required to serve ASI for an incomplete assignment, so long as they do not have a valid reason for not completing the assignment, and they did not put any effort into their assignment.

Side: Yes

If you do not complete an assignment, did you even try? i believe you must at least try to complete it, then if you don't understand you can go in the morning and ask the teacher for help.

Side: Yes

A student is responsible for the completion of the assignment they are given.

If the student isn't smart enough to spend the 5 to 8 hours he/she has at home finishing their homework, why would they be able to copy it off the board when its grading time. They should have a consequence for what they didn't do.

Side: Yes

the student had been given almost a full 24 hours to complete this assignment. They could have worked on it in the classroom, during cain time or while they were waiting to be picked up from school. You are here to learn not to be social. The things you learn in school are essential to your future.

Side: Yes

students have from when school ends to when school starts which is like 17 hours to get their homework done which is plenty of time and if they choose not to do it they should be disciplined with ASI and should understand that they have higher standards as a Cain student they should also be able to learn discipline.

Side: Yes
2 points

Students that have been irresponsible with their schoolwork should be disciplined with an ASI. They need to understand that Cain holds them to a high standard, with consequences for their actions. If these students are unable to stay with these standards, Cain offers Cain Time and tutoring before and after school.

I think that if they do not have a valid argument for not completing the assignment. some students have a real reason for why they couldn't finish their assignment.when they just don't do it because they were lazy or even if they just didn't do it to the best of their ability then they should be given an ASI.

Side: Yes

Students should be forced to attend ASI because they should so they do there work. It is not fair if everyone else has to do the homework or assignment and the person doesn't have to. Students should punished for not doing/completing there assignment.

Side: Yes
1 point

Students should be punished if they aren't willing to put in effort and do their work. 24 hours is more than enough time to complete whatever work that they have. In real life, if you don't finish a job at work you get fired. There are consequences for not doing work.

Side: Yes

Students should have to go ASI, an entire assignment that has not been completed is just outrages what was so hard to your assignment. They should take responsibilty and do their work!

Side: Yes
1 point

Yes, students should be provided an option to go and finish the work that they were irresponsible to finish. They were given opportunities in the morning during tutorials and during cain time, if their class is after lunch, to finish the work. Students need structure that gives them the chance to do better in their learning environment. When a student doesn't complete an assignment they are showing that they are requiring help to finish that assignment or at least a quiet place to redo it. The student that is irresponsible will learn from their mistake and try harder to stay out of ASI. Students should feel like they have an opportunity to succeed in school.

I agree with what you say and you make valid points, however you also have to look at the motive behind the unfinished assignment... If they failed to complete the assignment because they didnt understand the assignment and couldnt get help in time thenthey should be assigned cain time to help instead of ASI. however on the other hand, if they just dont care, then you might as well send them to ASI or detention.

Side: No

I think that students should receive ASI because students have to do their homework even though you forgot, you could have done it when you have time if you have other plans to do but us students are responsible for the homework, and you can't rush through the work as well.

Side: Yes
1 point

The problem with this system is that teachers do not trust some students, and must treat all student fairly, so even if the student has a substantial reason teachers do not know if they are truthful. This brings up the argument that ASI is bad, but we must teach all the students responsibility and truthfulness, so the students that do not really need to go to ASI will help to push the other students to do their work.

Side: Yes

it's a very simple system, if you don't do as you're told in school, you face the consequences of your actions, it's not unfair, just lack of doing as you're told. (I was bribed to clicked yes)

If they don't want to do the work let them have a bad grade. The principle is not responsible for them there parents are. They don't need a set of parents at school and at home to set up their punishment.

Side: No

The problem with that is, not all parents are responsible enough to punish their students for their school life, imagine you commit a crime, and the police were to send you back to your parents to decide the punishment, alot of problems would go unsolved.

In some ways the Principal is responsible if no one is passing it will reflect poorly on him/her

Its not fair that if we don't do a paper, we have to stay after school for an hour and a half.

It is fair. If you don't do your homework, even though you had Cain Time, the morning and after school, you should be punished.

It's not fair that you just didn't do it. Most papers take less than thirty minutes.

That's not always the case, some people have a hard time writing and completing papers, and sometimes they have situations that are just beyond their control.

I don't think that it is fair for a student to have to redo the assignment in ASI, if they didn't understand the assignment. What if the teacher wasn't there to help them?

Side: No

Then they can use classtime to ask the teacher for help, or even before school.

No, because some students dont have time to stay after school I think it would be better if u could go in the morning to complete an assignment.

But is it fair for that student or students to waste time at home not doing the assignment that was given and waste the teacher's time in class explaining why they didn't do it.

Side: No

They shouldn't have to stay after school for over an hour, just for skipping a few questions they didn't understand on homework. Thats like punishing them for not understanding every single thing they're expected to know the day that they learn it.

Side: No
3 points

I don't think that students should have to go into an intervention because of an incomplete assignment. They might not have understood the assignment, or they might not have had time to complete it. If they didn't understand it, the teacher shouldn't give them ASI. They should help them with it.

Side: No

I don't thinks it's fair for a student to attend ASI after school. It might be the case to where it was an honest mistake that you forgot to do your homework, and that student might have something after school that they can't miss under any circumstances. That student should just be given a 0 and the option to redo it. Also some students may not be able to get a ride home that late after school.

Side: No
3 points

they should have to stay if they didn't understand the assignment the first time, it should be optional so people who want to redo it can get a good grade and the ones they don't care can get a bad grade

Side: No

When students are forced to go to ASI, they automatically get a way to get a better grade on the assignment they didn't complete. Instead, students should get a zero on their assignment so their grade will be effected. This way, students will have a reason to do the assignment. Why would a student want to start doing their homework when they can do it later at ASI?

Also, some people have multiple after school activities that they can't miss for a random ASI for forgetting to complete one minor worksheet. Legitimate after school activities are more important than an ASI for a random worksheet.

A solution is that you shouldn't get an opportunity to redo the assignment. The punishment will be inside their grades.

Side: No

Personally, I think it depends on why they didn't complete it and how much they didn't complete, but other than that, I think ASI is code for detention. But it's a great opportunity to get homework done.

Side: No

Honestly, I'm kinda neutral about this, but there was no "neutral" option.

The idea of asi really depends on how much they did, why they didn't do the assignment and what they where doing instead of the homework. it is a hassle for parents to come an get their child after school and it often conflicts with sports and other electives.

Side: No
2 points

If one assignment is missed they should have a second chance. If they miss many assignments though, then they should have ASI. I believe it would be better to have one day to make it up for a lower grade, then a ASI if they still don't complete it.

Side: No

Students may have a complicate life at home. They could have divorced parents or just struggle with school in general. The student should be allowed to give reasons for the incomplete assignment, and the teachers judge from there if the students excuse is valid.

Side: No

An hour and a half after school is not a reasonable punishment for forgetting your homework at home. It is unfair, confuses peoples schedules, and doesn't help in the long run.

No cause if you didn't finish a paper cause you didn't understand it it is not fare its not the students mistake.
