The troubled teens aren’t learning the right amount of education they need. They are actually learning less than the average student. The author of “Report: Juvenile justice system schools “do more harm than good” says, “The education provided to the 70,000 juveniles incarcerated on any given day across the nation is “substandard” and “is setting them even further back in their ability to turn their lives around,” according to a report released today by the Southern Education Foundation.” Not one, Not two, but 70,000 juveniles are being set back in the education that’s being provided in the system. These juveniles can’t turn their lives around if they aren’t getting the proper
Hendrix states that a more traditional conclusion, that restates the themes of the book would have been a better choice. “Sadly, its lack leaves the reader with a sense of incompleteness, significantly weakens what would otherwise be a strong work, and rather mutes the effect of the points the author wished to make” (Hendrix). I do not necessarily agree with his statement here. I find it to be boring or unnecessary to end a book by just restating the themes and information that the entire book previously laid out. I thought it was a good way to end the book, since it furthered her theme of the divide in treatment between enlisted men and officers, without explicitly recapping her

WBLAH have children watching their station they feel that have commercials with clothes too revealing would not be good for the children to watch. The Cardigans feel that WBLAH is violated their freedom of speech under the 1st Amendment. WBLAH disagree they do not commercials not suitable for children. The Cardigans believe that WBLAH is going by the old law that does not allow commercial are not suitable for children.
I read in the book The Giver by Lois Lowry that the citizens gave up their individuality, ability to feel pain, and job choice to make a better community but it didn’t happen. I believe that we should never do this because it would lead into
The arguments are some people wanting to ban all kinds of guns, some people who want all guns to stay legal, and the government trying to keep the peace between both stubborn headed arguments. In the first place, there are people that think strong gun control or banning guns will keep the gun violence at an all time low. They want to ban assault weapons such as sawed-off shotguns and semi-automatic weapons. The reason that assault weapons are being argued about their legality is because they can be
Whether the reason for banning The Catcher in the Rye in school was for its unapologetic portrayal of underage drinking or a mental breakdown it remained just out of reach of the hands of those who could identify with it the most. How can protection in this form be any beneficial if statistically the students understand part of what Holden Caulfield the trouble protagonist is going through? Over 1.2 million students drop out of High School every year, that’s 7,000 a year. The tipping point of Caulfield 's break down that sent him into a downwards spiral or binge drinking and smoking. Consequently something 25% of students struggle with.
Whether it is implicit stereotypes, or explicit derogatory words, hate speech affects us no matter what skin color or gender we are. Some could argue that hate speech is just words, and should never be seen as the equivalent of assault, however people that have experienced it may tell a different tale. They may debate that hate speech is so emotionally and physically hurtful, that it is the verbal equivalent to spitting in someone’s face. As such, we may also use theoretical philosophical concepts such as deontology and consequentialism to attempt to solve this ethical topic. Although hate speech could be regarded as free speech, it infringes on an individuals rights, thus I will argue that it should be criminalized.
However, I feel that Mill’s harm principle is not efficient of specific enough to follow. There is a difference between free speech and hate speech. There are people who direct their speech to purposely harm others. This sort of speech should not be tolerated or allowed. By allowing people to express their hate in the form of speech, it would decrease the overall happiness of the majority.
"I 'm so stressed out"- 49% of American teenagers What do the demands of school, sports, friends and getting a job have in common? Although underestimated by a majority of adults these all cause stress in our adolescent population. Nearly half of America 's teenagers are under tremendous pressure and it is taking a toll. Poor stress management techniques developed young tend to carry over into adulthood and can result in compound negative effects. Coping methods The Center for Disease Control published a study showing that, "In 2015, there were 1,537 suicides among males and 524 among females ages 15 to 19 years."
The truth is, there is a fine line between child abuse and teaching a child a lesson. All these types of abuse can cause serious, mental, and physical traumas which can stay with them throughout their whole life. That is there for socially unjust. When children are being abused it's not easy for them to ask for help. Don’t wait for them to ask, step up and give them the help they need.
A person 's decision can impact others when someone wants to ban a book. The book that person’s trying to ban may be somebody 's favorite book. You can’t take away someone 's favorite book because you dislike the book. Your personal opinion shouldn’t be something permanent and affect everyone. I agree with Sarah Begley in “What The List of Most Banned Books Says About our Society 's Fears.” She states how we as citizens have rights, and one of them being the first amendment which grants us freedom of the
Whether laws intend to limit the offensive power of a minority or protect a minority from attacks, either way rights are lost. In the words of Roger Baldwin, founder of the civil liberties union, “In order to defend the people you like, you have to defend the people you hate.” Roger Baldwin’s statement indicates that if we limit the free speech of one group we ultimately limit our own freedoms. The first Amendment clearly states the limiting of any groups right is unconstitutional, “make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.” The basis behind not allowing the government to define free speech allows Americans to create their own social order and among themselves determine what is acceptable. The Westboro Baptist Church has received vast amounts of criticism for their picketing. In Louis Theroux’s documentary about The Westboro Baptist Church, a child protester is hit in the head with a soft drink, and the picketers are frequently chased away from their picketing.
The author in this article argue the school board decision to stop using team names such as Chiefs or Indians, but will be permitted using names with no imagery involved such as Warriors. It seems that there are different views in how to use Native American representation. Supporters argue that no harm done in using these names, on the other hand opponents will argue that using these names is degrading the Native American culture. According to the author, many research’s asked the question, what does these names or mascots represent? The author point view shows that these mascots might bring more harm than good.
Chavez, I cannot stress enough the emphasis on the objection letter from Cook County DA! Please, I need you to depict a different image of me or minimize its severity than originally portrayed by the DA. If we can counter attack the DA’s letter, most likely they will run out of ammo to attack us next time. The following emphasizes I need you to work on (just my recommendation, I am certain you have your strategy): • Minimize immigration/deportation since the DA claimed it is a federal concern but not the state • Primarily reason to seek pardon is to leave criminal life behind and move forward without any conscience 2. A license to freely practice mental health 3.
In recent reports there have even been elementary schools which have been raided by immigration or (ICE) in order to both deport the children and their parents. The poverty level of the children of immigrants have increased from “12% in 1970 to 21% in 2000.” (Racial Domination) This would point to the lack of education resources and advantages. Quote:“Children of recent immigrants, according to school documents, made up only between six and ten percent of students in school. So “immigration,” which has sometimes been presented to the public as an expiating reason for
