Educational reforms benefit students in 8th grade
Recently, Senator and Representative Tammy Baldwin and Sean Duffy visited Madison, WI to observe a successful classroom graduation. Four eighth grade students became members of the graduating class of 8th grade. In talking with the students, the Staff Arts Teacher shared information about the state of education in Wisconsin and discussed what his own eighth grade class faced and did to achieve success.
I would like to share with you four reasons why we should have discussions on the importance of Eighth Grade and the Academic Success That Students are Finally Upon.
I am compelled to write to you, because my mother is a child. To her, the Eighth Grade is the time for youth to mature as people and fulfill their potential. Indeed, the Students who graduate from 8th grade are met with a formidable road to personal development and live in permanent learning curves. Their knowledge and understanding of mathematics, reading, writing, and other subjects is on par with the best 8th graders in the country. Instead of seeing 8th grade as an intimidating space, we should view it as a bridge to success. This bridge to academic success gives students and parents many reasons to turn to educational programs that support an 8th grade graduation ceremony. I am inspired by the staff of the high school I attended and the teachers and friends that reached beyond what the faculty was teaching to inspire youth to learn.
