Should students be forced to attend ASI for not completing an assignment (8th Period)

yes, i feel that being forced to attend an asi is a very reasonable and fair punishment. Its a responsibility that you didn't take seriously, and you should learn your lesson. It will teach you to get things done the first time, to have responsibility.. You would never truly learn your lesson if you don't get punished.

Then they can talk to their teacher if it is truly that important that you couldn't finish your homework, they will understand.

no one should ever be forced it just angers them in the situation more. in the long run in life there will be no teacher or principle to tell you that you need to redo an assignment its either you fail or you don't.

YES. Its not fair to the people who do there homework who pay attention in class. People need punishments, it will help them in the future.

Most people don't just "not take it seriously". They most of the time not have time, or not have the resources to do it.

After school intervention helps the student understand what they didn't finish.

Even if they didn't attempt doing their homework it wouldnt hurt to just go and understand.

I have been to ASI,it helps alot. Its better than getting a zero.

You're points are correct. Although, many students don't take ASI as a tutorial or learning session. It gives them more frustration then they need. They shouldn't be forced to stay for after school intervention.

Side: No
2 points

well.. it depends…

sometimes the student wasn't there to complete the assignment but usually the student just didn't do the assignment.

if the student didn't do the assignment period then yes. but if the student only had a couple of answers left the he/se did not do then no… over all my final answer is yes the student should be forced to go to ASI.

Side: Yes

Students should be signed and attend an ASI if hey haven't finished their work. They could get help in the work they haven't finished yet. The student could learn the consequences of not completing their work. Teachers spend time teaching the students, so ASI could waste the students time like the student wasted the teachers time. The student could finish and understand better if they are in ASI.

Side: Yes
1 point

Yes, because if you don't finish the work that should have been done, teachers should make sure you get it done to make sure you are being a successful leader. Why should teachers waste their time teaching you when you don't even pay attention or give effort? Since teachers do their part, students should too.

Side: Yes

Yes, if you are assigned a paper to complete and you fail to do so, you should be punished. Teachers do a good job of reminding you when a paper is due and how to complete it, so there is no reason it shouldn't be completed. Even though in ASI, mostly just sit there, you are being punished which will help you to learn your lesson and not make that mistake again.

do you enjoy doing your homework? If you do not do your homework your teacher is punished too because they have to wait to grade it and takes them more time. when you do not turn your homework in you deserve a punishment because you are not learning and your theacher is being punished.

Side: Yes

The punishment doesn't have to be an ASI. It could be minus 5 points for everyday that he/she doesn't get the assignment, or it could be a 0 in the grade book until they turn it in. Being held after school doesn't teach responsibilities. Giving real consequences does.

I mean, if they don't do 1 assignment, they should get an extra day. But if it happens frequently and constantly without fail, they should get ASI

Students that dont finish their work deserve some sort of punishment. Not doing anything just means that they can get away with it more. Them not finishing their homework means they were too lazy to do it. No matter what, you have time somewhere in your day to do 2 pages of work. Not finishing it is no excuse, they should be punished and have some sort of responsibility to deal with for not doing it. Yes, you may have problems with it but thats why you go before or after school to get homework help.

Students should learn to take responsibility for themselves he should not be forced to do it. Its there life and they're results count upon there decision. I do believe that teachers should encourage them to do so. No one should ever get forced

By getting punished another way other than ASI. You don't need to be held after school to "learn your lesson". You can learn your lesson by getting a deduction or not being able to do something that the class is doing. ASI doesn't do anything for you

Well some students don't always have the help or the mind set too get work down and always get out of stuff easily. When teachers don't make it clear that they need to turn their work in, they should learn to do their work from ASI.

I believe students should have the choice to go or not. ASI is a form of detention, except it is there for students to complete the work that they couldn't get done at home. If the student doesn't have an assignment complete, I think the teacher should put a 0 in the gradebook until the assignment is complete, and when they turn it in they can get up to an 85. Having the 0 in the gradebook is a motive in itself for the student to complete the work, and to have it prepared on time next time. However, I also believe the student should have a limit on the amount of times they can turn their work in late. A student shouldn't be able to just turn their work in whenever they want. So the student should only turn in late work if they have a good reason for it. If they continually turn their work in late, the teacher should put zeros in the grade book as a motive for the student to complete it next time.

Side: No

No. Because ASI doesn't really do anything for them. It's just a place they have to stay for extra time. They might have a good reason for not turning in the work. ASI just tells them that it was a mistake. It doesn't prevent it from happening again.

Side: No

For real there is kids in there all the time because it doesnt prevent them from doing it over and over again but there is a thing where if they have so many ASI they can be expelled for a day or two.. think

Side: No

Students who do not complete the entire assignment should not be forced to attend after school ASI. I understand it is helpful to prevent people who constantly don't do their assignments to continue to not, but for those who one night was very busy and forgot to do a couple problems should not be forced to attend. They should only be assigned ASI if they continually forget or don't bother to do their work.

Side: No

That makes sense, but if you are a good kid and usually do your work, most teachers will just give you a warning and assign you ASI if it happens again.

Side: Yes

A lot of people say that ASI is a thing that helps give kids a second chance to do there work but you are forced to go and you are being watch as you do it!I truly think that they should give you another chance because some Teachers don't understand that they might of lost it or left it at home or there smaller siblings stole it or took it from them.

Just because they didn't finish a paper, doesn't mean that they should sit in a 90 minute study hall. All f the kids see it as a punishment an think that it isn't helpful to put them there. They can always finish it the next night, with a small deduction of points. I do not think people should be put in detention.

Side: No

Students should not be forced into an afterschool intervention for not turning in homework. Each different case should be treated individually, not a yes no question. ASI is a place for students who consistently dont do their work and need help completing it. Students who almost always have their homework in on time should not be punished, especially if they have a good excuse.

Side: No

No, Because kids go to intervention for about an hour and a half to do (sometimes) only one piece of paper. They should be able to choose wether or not they should go… or maybe the parents should be the ones deciding.

Students shouldn't be forced to go to ASI. Kids should be given a chance to explain but still have to do the 15 minute assignment but not stay for the hour and 15 minutes left of just sitting there. some kids just forgot their home work and should be given the chance on the contact of the assignment and what the teacher says it should be determined not buy just one rule that says every kid who forgets their homework is a bad kid who didn't do their homework on purpose. the punishment if any at all should be decided on the situation. The rule teaches kids that people who don't do their homework are bad, but that doesn't mean all kids who do their homework are good some ail cheat to avoid the pointless punishment and won't learn anything at all.

From 8:45-3:45, we go to school seven hours a day, five days a week. Averagely, one student will go to bed at around nine to eleven. Due to mornings being a rush or sleepy time, this leaves approximately five to seven hours of time at home. During this time, there is family time, homework, chores, and other things that consume time, crushing and crunching away at the little time they get. After all, what's an extra hour or two stuck at school to only do one thing you were unable to do before? And during this time not able to do any of the other things they should do? I see no fairness. Make up can as easily be done at home; if a student is unable to do it one day, they might the next. During ASI, you can't spend the time you have when you finish with your family, friends, or anything you could do, and it's a hassle to the parents having to pick them up so late. By the time ASI gets out, many families will be getting dinner ready, and the time they get is still chopped up. Sure, you can do other home work during that time, but what id you have five assignments one day, and only one (for make up) the next?

They shouldnt be forced to attend ASI because it wouldnt do anything for them. They shouldnt be forced to go to ASI for not completing assignment because they might of not understood it and how to do it and decided not to do it unstead of writing down random stuff down. They should of unstead give them a certain grade for not completing it.

Students who don't complete there homework assignments should not be assigned an after school

ASI. There should be a prgram that allows students that continuelsy don't turn in or complete the assignment. The student may have had an emergencey that didn't allow them to complete the assignment that the teachers cant quite grasp. If the student attends ASI they will have felt as if this isn't going to solve anything because the night of the unplanned event happen without entention. If the student states a reasonable agurement they shouldn't be placed in ASI.

I have had many bad experiences with ASI at Cain Middle School. Its unnecessary to have someone take an entire assignment for not getting 4 of the 20 problems on a history assignment. This happened 3 times and it got in the way from me spending time with my dad before he leaves for work. I hardly have the time to to see him through the week so this really hurts. Retaking it and having the original paper would really help. I think ASI is just a way to annoy students at school

Side: No

Sure it teaches them a lesson, but it only takes up precious time they could be using for studying a test or they could succeed better when they have different luxuries at home, it's very intensifying hen your in there for an hour and a half with SOME delinquents, and that might have been the students first ASI, and everyone knows that after school everyone stops at the library to see who"s in ASI that day, it's REALLY embarassing for the kids who really don't deserve it.

I think that students should not be forced to attend ASI for not completing an assignment, because all it really does is help them to complete an assignment and most people feel that its "okay" to get attended to ASI because its a time where they could spend time with their friends and talk with them.

They are not supposed to talk during ASI.

ASI is supposed to be an after school thing where they complete the work that they did not finish and sit silently until 5:30

I think they shouldn't go to ASI because they didn't complete an assignment. It is there choice in what the want to do, most kids don't learn anything from sitting after school and just waiting to get home. Its not going to prevent them from forgetting, or not finishing there homework. It also can give a child stress and frustration at home with their parents or guardian at home, from not doing one question on a homework assignment! Maybe they forgot or didn't see a page they missed. Students shouldn't be forced to do anything.
