If students do not put full effort into their assignments they should have consequences. If they just don't do it, they should be punished as well. It is the students responsibility to complete their assignments and by creating consequences they begin to take school work seriously.

Putting kids in ASI won't motivate them to get their work done. I believe there should be a positive motive.

If they continue to slack off with their school work and get away with it, they will begin to think they can get away with slacking off at more important things such as college and their future jobs. Punishment for not completing work is necessary.

I agree with Kaylee. My little brother gets away with everything he does because he says he'll never do it again. Guess what? He does something worse. People who know they won't get punished deserve whats coming to them.

thats another problem. sometimes the teachers idea of 'your best' is a lot higher than what the student can even achieve.

Putting kids in ASI is not a punishment, but a reward. They get to redo the assignment to a maximum of a 85 AFTER the fact that they didn't do the assignment the first time. It's just not right.

We all deserve second chances and by providing ASI that is what we have. If we did not have ASI then most all of us would be failing.

Side: Yes

I think students should have ASI.The reason I think is this because students need to learn the value of doing homework.If they don't do their homework and don't turn it in how do you expect they will learn from their actions.Another reason that ASI is great for students is that they will get help with the homework/worksheet they did not complete.They will learn and accomplish their work.

Side: Yes

not necisarily, in ASI (i have been in a few) teachers only help somewhat, teachers t times treat it as a prison of some sort like some teachers won't let you use the restroom, and some just have an attitude with students which causes even more problems, i mean honestly how do you learn from sitting in a room doing a piece of paper you didn't do the first time. sure it helps get the work done but it doesn't help you lean anything.

Side: No

well there are teachers who do actually come help and that also follows in your attitdue and you need to learn from that teachers will do all they can to work with you but you also need to try your best instead of doing nothing and i agree with sitting in a room is wrong but it at least is eye opening than staying in a room for 2 hours

I believe students should receive ASI for not completing their work because later on in life, when a human being has a job, they will most likely be assigned to do something by their boss. Once assigned this, that person will most likely be expected to complete that assignment in a given time. If they don't complete the assignment in the given time, they will receive a consequence and then be reassigned what they were first ever given to complete.

Side: Yes

while that is a good point, you have to remember the purpose of ASI its purpose is for kids to get better grades after the first time as in life you don't get any second chances, does this make sense? ASI works only for one thing, and that is putting the fear of their parents into them because no parent wants to com out at 5:30 just to pick their kid up, ASI isn't a consequence its more like some what of an incentive for their parents not to be mad at them.

Side: No

When a student fails to complete the task given to them by a teacher I believe that they should be sent to ASI. If other students are capable of completing the assignment in time, the ones who fail to do so should be helped by going to ASI. ASI will teach students that prioritizing school and other activities by getting things done on time is better than procrastinating, and that responsibility is important.

Side: Yes

Without ASI, there would be many kids that decide that they just don't want to do their work and without consequences, these kids will not have to take up responsibility for their actions. Once their are no consequences many kids will simply say they need help with assignment after assignment, knowing that they will not get in trouble for their actions. ASI can also be a time to help kids actually accomplish getting their assignments done, and even though some kids go in there to do nothing, that's why they are in there in the first place.

Side: Yes

If a student does not complete an assignment, they should deserve time to finish it after school. It's not a punishment, its just that students wasted a teachers time to not do i,t so they should sacrifice their time to finish.

Side: Yes

What if they finish it within the first 15 minutes or so? They're forced to stay the entire time, and eventually get bored, leading to obnoxious noises and sounds, distracting those who need all the time. It would also help if they treated it like tutoring, not prison.

The people who don't do their work won't really get far in life. I know some people that just flat out don't care about school at all. Most of these people either didn't get taught well by their parents or just bad teachers which isn't why they don't do their work. Another reason why people don't do their work is because of the people they hang out with. They might think it's cool to not do anything and forget about school even though it will affect your life. Anyways.. why doesn't anyone want to go home and chill on their couch watching T.V.?

If those people don't care about school you can't expect them to care about ASI, its pointless if it doesn't work. Its a waste of time for the teachers also.

I think every semester, the first time you do not turn in your homework you should only receive a poor grade instead of ASI but if you don't turn in your homework more than once a semester , you should get ASI from now on. Everyone makes mistakes but if you do something unacceptable more than once ,it shows that they lack the responsibility to turn in their work on time. They should lose the privilege of trying to fix their own problems without school intervention.

Side: Yes

No because if a student didn't do their assignment in the first place, that means they don't care about their grades. they will get their own punishment by getting bad grades, so why punish them more?

Side: No

I believe that students should not have to attend ASI after school because most of the students that go are going everyday and just don't care about their work. When these kids go to ASI they probably don't get anything out of it anyway. I think that the school should give kids a positive reason for kids to want to do their work instead of putting them in a room for an hour and a half.

8 hours everyday, the clock ticks and moves along, you are bustled fro class to class, you assignments pile up, and you are suddenly caught up in a great basket of different responsibilities and your very own thoughts--thoughts of how you're feeling, the pressure of what you have to do later, and the thoughts of how your grades will reflect your assignments when they are graded--and when they go home, they spend their times try to crawl out of this basket and then find their way back on their raft to their great island of solitude, where they will be able to stop the loud and pang-ing thoughts in their head that run amuck throughout the day and focus on what they want to truly do with their time. ASI is detrimental to their ability to escape on their raft, and it leaves them no reason to be motivated to go on, because if they ca ever see the true reflection of their lack of effort then how can you expect them to make an effort?

We are humans and we make mistakes, but it doesn't mean we should have an hour and a half for little mistakes we make. for students who have a good reputation, complete there assignments and forget there homework at home should not be forced to attend ASI, instead have a point deduction for the teachers inconvenience. But for kids who constantly forget or don't do there homework should be sent without exception

but it may just be an accident. what if you didn't have enough time in the morning to get everything ready? just one simple mistake shouldn't mean you have to stay after school for an hour and a half to redo a paper you already completed.

I believe that students should be responsible for completing their assignment not the school. Also, if they get a bad grade then it is their own fault let them keep the bad grade.

Plus its the same kids in ASI. What good will ASI do if the kids don't even care? Also, there are some kids who can't go to ASI.

Side: No

i believe that students should be responsible with their own work. It shouldn't be up to a teacher. If the student has an incomplete assignment, it should be up to them to decide if they want to keep the bad grade or be responsible enough to redo it for a better grade. If you expect a student to be responsible, you should give them a bit of indecency to prove that they are responsible.

Side: No

No, because when you think about it ask doesn't really help anybody complete their work. well none of my friends anyways. I believe it takes away from our time because thats our free time, then takes away from teachers time because they will have to grade it, honestly if there was a punishment for not completing work why not do something productive and actually punishing by something physical, such as push ups or 1 workout session thats really tough i mean obesity is a problem anyways.

Side: No

The student who do not do their own work do not deserve time to do the work that they did not even bother to do in their own time. What is worse, the students should not be able to receive a better grade on a paper that they didn't even bother to work on, while other people who worked hard only get one shot at the assignment. ASI takes up the parents time and the teachers time and it is not fair to them.

Side: No

I understand going to ASI if you need help, or as a punishment, but not completing an assignment isn't a good reason for going. Most people go to "intervention" for not doing homework, not because they didn't understand, but because they just don't care. Making them stay after school doesn't have an effect on them. Let them fail at their own cost.

Side: No

I believe that students shouldn't attend ASI for not completing an assignment.

They either choose not to do the assignment or didn't want to complete it.They will probably not try thier hardest in ASI. So whats the point in assigning the ASI if they arent going to try their hardest?

I believe that students that don't do their work or just put random answers shouldn't be put into ASI. They deserve the grade they get for the effort they gave to do the page. How does it benefit the person at all? It brings a negative feeling to everything. They don't care the first time so why would they the second time?

Side: No

The school should not have the power to take someone's time more than they already have. We should have the freedom to either keep our grade, or correct it for a reduced score. ASI brings it to the extent of getting in the way of our everyday lives. The majority of people assigned ASI are there all the time, this shows how ASI "teaches them to be more responsible". Although it does give the opportunity to make up work, it is more a burden than anything.

Side: No

I believe students shouldn't be forced to attend an ASI that they receive because most students have a lot of stuff they do out of school. If they receive one a day they can't go, I think they should be able to skip it, or be able to attend an ASI during cain time or before school to make it up.

Side: No

Students shouldn't be put into ASI because of unfinished homework. There are just some days where we, as students, are loaded with too much homework and can't get it all done. This reminds me of how i have a teacher who never gives us our grades back because of all their other classes, yet I'd be given ASI from that same teacher for one uncompleted or late assignment. Also, ASI lasts for about 2 hours after school, which i find unreasonably long, just for one short paper and it conflicts with our lives and other electives or classes.

Side: No

Students should not be forced to attend ASI for not completing an assignment. If they didn't feel like completing an assignment they should be simply given a zero. It is not fair, nor just for students to have the ability to be able to redo an assignment that they didn't feel like completing. What about the students who did complete it? They actually did the work the first time and tried. At work, if you don't finish a project that you have been working on, you will be fired. Students should only have the opportunity to go to ASI to if you failed the assignment the first time you failed it IF you finished it.

Side: No

ASI is a place where your sent to do your work but the problem with that is most of the students don't care if they get ASI they don't care. If they need help there is time before, after school, and even during cain time.So there is no point in having something like this. If a good student forgets his homework once then they should get a warning. There should be a different place for kids who don't care where they can't leave until there work is completed to their fullest potential.

Side: No

I don't think students should be sent to ASI for not completing an assignment. If one student, who had one of the top grades in the class, completely forgot about the backside of an assignment he wouldn't have to worry about being punished for a mistake that happens to a lot of people. But, if there is a student who doesn't care about any of their work and the teachers repeatedly keep trying to help him bring up his grades and have him take more responsibility. In the end they are just wasting their time. If these kinds of kids are getting sent to intervention repeatedly, they OBVIOUSLY aren't learning the intended lesson. I'd say just give the non-caring kids a zero and move on.

I support this argument because this is simply how it works, there are the people who will do and those who will not, there are those who will know not to touch the blazing stove, and those who will get some sick, erotic pleasure out of the feeling of touching the hot stove, the pain, the heat, the sheer idea of doing exactly what they are not supposed to do. These are the kind of people that you find in the library after 3:45, and the division is astounding.

I think that students should not have to go to ASI. A lot of kids have after school activities and they might not be able to attend ASI. Also ASI is kind of a waste of time considering the same kids always go to ASI, so it is not really helping them. Considering this it is also a waste of time for the teachers because the have to watch kids for an hour after school and some don't even care about their school work.

I don't believe that a student should be forced to attend an ASI for not completing an assignment. First of all, they might be busy doing other things like sports, club meetings, etc. ASI will only bring stress to the student, and most of the kids attending ASI don't care if they do get a detention. Apparently ASI is supposed to engage the student to do better the next time. But really. it's punishing them for an hour and a half for ONE assignment missed. So how are students supposed to have something positive to say about this when they are being punished?

Side: No

I don't think the school should give out detentions because majority of the school is always in there it doesn't make a difference because they don't care about there future or there life. Plus some people don't have rides.I understand if people that are rarely in there it actually affects them because some people care about there future.

I've been in A.S.I many times for not doing my homework. I support the no side because some kids don't have a ride home and stay after school for long periods of time,they could miss practice after school for the sport they play. I get how the principle wants us to pay for not turning our homework but if the kid has a lot of homework that night and forget then maybe you should let them take the bad grade because they are the one that didn't do the assignment, and teachers could just let them come and redo the assignment.

Side: No
