10 Educational Responsibilities of Students

A few days ago I posted 10 responsibilities of parents. Today I have 10 responsibilities of students. These are the tasks that I believe every student needs to do to be successful.
  1. Students need to make education their #1 priority. They must have the will and determination needed to succeed.
  2. Students must get enough sleep.
  3. Students must eat properly.
  4. Students need to read each day.
  5. Students must do homework. Even if there is nothing assigned, students should review their notes, read their textbooks, and work through example and sample problems.
  6. Students need to follow school rules. The rules exist so that the school runs in an orderly and safe manner.
  7. Students should be involved in extracurricular activities and community service, but not so much that it interferes with their school work.
  8. Students must make every effort to learn their subjects. If there's something that's difficult or not understood, the student should try to figure it out on their own. Only when that doesn't work, should they ask their teachers for extra help. At this point it is their responsibility to ask their teachers for help. Teachers often do not know a student is having a problem unless the student asks.
  9. Students must attend class everyday and be on time for those classes.
  10. The only exception to rule #8 is if the student has an illness, especially illnesses that could spread to other students. In this case it is the student's responsibility to meet with every teacher to find out what they missed while gone and to get that work done as quickly as possible.
If students meet these responsibilities, they will find they enjoy their school years, will do well in school, and will be prepared for whatever comes next in their lives.
