Jade Mimoso 9/10/15 Argumentative Essay 1 Do you think that Juvenile Justice Centers are beneficial for troubled teens? Well, they actually aren’t beneficial at all. I don’t think that they are beneficial because, some centers don’t help the troubled teens get on track, the center doesn’t have the same educational standards as regular schooling, and most of the kids that get out are still troubled. Let me explain why. For Starters, the Juvenile Justice center doesn’t help some of the troubled teens.
Arguments say that public schools benefit more than homeschooling. However, that is not the case. Both public school and homeschooling numbers are rising due to parents deciding to homeschool their children’s (Moreau 5). Education is where people learn by which developing
Li, Y. Zhong, K. Chen, Z. Zhong and J. Pan. Children who are neglected can experience serious developmental problems when becoming an adult. In this study, a cross-sectional survey was conducted in rural and urban Chinese cities from September 2012 to April 2013. A chi-squared test was used to compare the neglect rate between different groups. Participants were acquired from 21 schools and a total of 2,094 boys and 2,037 girls were involved in the study.
The goal of the study was to see if, on average, students performed poorly if they listened to music deemed explicit. The study also looked at parents’ perceptions of how they believed the music their children listened to affected the child’s grades and code of conduct. While the study found that a large majority of children listened to explicit music and half their parents found that there was a negative of effect on the gilds grades, there was no conclusive relationship that could be found between grades and
But does this mean that doctors are diagnosing patients with ADHD just because they are less mature than some of their peers instead of having a definite behavioral hyperactivity? Clearly the diagnoses of ADHD is up for question. New research has proven that the maturity level of the child does play a role in the child 's performance at school. But that doesn 't mean that the child automatically has ADHD because he or she can 't pay attention as well as someone a year older. Therefore why is there such a raise in
In Berry’s (2011) study, most students chose integration as their efficacious strategy of acculturation, because statistics show that the majority of the students do not deliberately separate or integrate from the German society (Yu & Wang, 2011). Young children and adolescents who use integration can help reduce feelings of loss and grief as the migrant start to incorporate aspects of the majority culture (Bhugra & Becker, 2005). Another example of how integration is consistently adaptive is when a Vietnamese American migrant in the United States might be fluent in both English and Vietnamese, advocate individualistic values in some contexts and collectivistic values in other contexts, and pinpoints
Another review of randomized trials that conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of coping cat on children with different types of anxiety disorders found that there was significant decrease in anxiety level over time compared with anxiety level of children in control group (Starrenburg et al., 2013). Podellet and hers colleague found that the desired outcomes from applied coping cat are not universal and the findings are significant and this treatment had been empirically supported. In addition they showed that between 50% and 72% of children with anxiety disorders like general anxiety disorder, social phobia and / or separation anxiety disorder who receive coping cat program no longer meet criteria for their presenting anxiety disorder following treatment (Podellet al.,
Have studies proved that segregating students by gender leads them to do better in school? Students learn better in single-gender schools. This is because in single gender schools, students tend to be able to concentrate more. Boys and girls are also academically different, so separating them by gender, would benefit students in their academics. Lastly, boys and girls feel less pressured in single-gender schools.
Black adolescents who attend predominantly White schools have been shown to have poorer mental and physical health (Walsemann, Bell, & Maitra, 2011). Johnson and Hoffman (2000) reported Black adolescents attending a predominantly minority school were less likely to engage in daily smoking. Youths attending racially isolated high schools were found to be more likely to work in racially isolated places of work as adults (Gee, Walsemann, & Brondolo, 2012; Stearns, 2010). Segregated schools have poorer quality of education and educational attainment (i.e., limited access to higher education preparation); individuals who took a college preparation course in high school demonstrated fewer depressive symptoms in adulthood, even after adjusting for educational attainment (Walsemann, Gee, & Geronimus, 2009). Ultimately, poorer quality of education due to school segregation can lead to poorer health conditions and inequities, in both childhood and adulthood, among different racial
2003). The parenting process or involvement shows a relation to violence and low self-esteem. According to Pflieger and Vazsonyi (2006) there is a direct effect on violence and an indirect effect with a mediator variable of adolescents’ low self-esteem, especially as regards dating violence among students attending high school. More recent research focuses on cohabitation can be related to delinquency. In general, studies find children who live in cohabitating households are much more likely to participate in juvenile delinquency compared to those in two-biological-parent households (Apel & Kaukinen, 2008; Kierkus, 2010; Manning & Lamb,
This is another way I support this policy. Little children in China also get a better education because of the policy. A.J. Song also says that Chinese research shows an advantage in education, “they tend to score better on intelligence tests…” He also says,” If you have more kids in your family, they’re probably lacking in education…” (Document F). Children that have a sibling have to split the attention with each other, so when they don’t have a sibling, they get a better education.
On one hand, prior research shows that single-mother families are characterized by erratic discipline and less supervision (Demuth, 65). Teenage mothers are more likely to become a single parent as well because teenage fathers are less likely to stick around. They also obtain less education and live in poverty. Further, the children of these teenage mothers were more likely to (1) be born prematurely and be of low birth weight (which increases the likelihood that they will develop traits like irritability and low self-control); (2) be physically abused, neglected, or abandoned; (3) be poorly supervised; (4) have trouble in school; and (5) become teenage mothers themselves (Agnew 257). All these traits lead up to delinquency but the father can contribute as well.
However, the authors continue to say that several researchers do not agree that the fact of having an absentee parent contributes to these outcomes; instead, they point to economic and academic differences between children from single-mother homes and from two-parent homes (Thio & Taylor, 2012). Nevertheless, certain studies assert that single-mother homes yield increased negative results on children as compared with children who are raised in two-parent homes despite the economic or academic history of the adults (Thio & Taylor, 2012). This fact affirms that divorce has unfavorable consequences on the children’s lives, especially on their education. Transitions for children and teens of
There is also an argument to this topic that dating violence is exaggerated. A Youth Behavior Risk Survey showed from 2003 that in all of high school, Freshman through Senior, only 9% reported that they had been violated in a relationship by their partner. The percentage of students who were abused were very few and dating violence shouldn’t be that much of a concern as people put it out to be today. In 2005, Intimate Partner Violence showed that 2.1 percent of high schoolers experienced and were the victim of physical violence from a boyfriend or girlfriend. These people believe that his percentage is extremely small and the fact that out of the whole high school less than three percent of the students have experienced this is pretty good and it shouldn’t be a big concern.
In addition, research has shown that minorities have lower test scores than whites because of hidden biases in the development of standardized tests(Reese). Standardized tests also favor those with socio-economic advantages. If one child lives in an environment with bad teachers and poor classroom basics, and another child lives in an environment with great teachers and many opportunities, how are they both supposed to succeed on a standardized test? It is almost impossible. And, in another way standardized tests are discriminatory, a study by the Annie E. Casey Foundation says that the gap for achievement test scores between rich and poor have grown by almost 60 percent since the 1960s(Rocks).
