School prayer is illegal, so having a school officiated prayer can lead to fines and other litigation. Not everyone agrees that school prayer should be banned however. Some say that banning prayer is illegal. They claim that, thanks to the first amendment, that prayer being banned is a violation of religious rights. Of course, banning prayer is illegal, which is why prayer is not banned, but prayer led by school officials or prayers officiated by the school are.
In no way are the rules set by our government vague enough to let Hosni Nassef’s actions be considered to be okay and permissible. There would be no argument at all had the federal government been allowed to protect its people as it sees fit. The Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1990, which made it illegal for an individual to possess a firearm in a school zone, was established by our government to protect children from gun violence, which made perfect sense. In 1995, the Act was invalidated by the Supreme Court Case during the case of “United States v. Lopez”. Essentially, what happened was Alfonso Lopez, Jr., a twelfth grade student of Edison High School of San Antonio, Texas, brought a .38 caliber revolver into school, claiming he was delivering
“Forrest Gump” by Winston Groom Forrest Gump was banned in 1999 at the Bay Point School in South Dade County, according to “The Pennsylvania Center”. It has been banned for the following reasons: “pokes fun at blacks”, uses explicit language, and has sexual content. While I can see why the book was banned, I don’t think it should be. Students should have the freedom to read what they please. Just because a book has racial slurs, doesn’t mean it should be banned.
Fisher, but they held the the Court of Appeals did not hold the University’s admission policies to a standard of strict scrutiny so the judgement was incorrect. In previous judicial precedent in cases dealing with minority admissions, the Court has held that they are reviewable under the fourteenth amendment, these such cases must be held to a standard of strict scrutiny to determine whether the policies are precisely tailored to serve a compelling governmental interest. If the policy does not meet this standard, then race can not be considered in any admissions process. The Court stated the it was the job of the reviewing court to verify that the University policy in question was necessary to achieve a more diverse student body and the any race-neutral alternative would not achieve the same level of diversity.The Supreme Court said the lower courts did not conduct a sufficient strict scrutiny examination in this case. Justice Ruth Ginsburg wrote the dissenting opinion in which she argued the the University treats race as merely one factor in the overall decision to admit a student, which is permissible under previous judicial precedent.
These people claim that smoking marijuana is harmful to the lungs and brain development of teenagers. Cigarettes have the same, if not greater, damaging effect on human lungs yet the government does not infringe upon Americans’ right to take such health risks. Although there have been no scientific study to validate that smoking marijuana damages brain development, a simple resolution would be to make the legal age for smoking and possessing marijuana in the mid 20’s when the brain is completely developed. The argument of the dangers of marijuana can also be made for the opposing side. Illegal and unregulated marijuanna posing far more dangers to people than if marijuana was regulated by the government.
The state also argued that the protected interests were not created by the U.S constitution but by its institutions. They also explained that suspending the students would hurt their reputations and make it hard for the students to find employment. The court argued that the state had no authority of suspending the students because it deprived each of them of educational
Schools have the legal right to suppress your freedom of speech if it interferes with learning, as explained in “What Constitutes Free Speech for Students” when the author includes “1969 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, unless public school officials can show that language would “materially and substantially” interfere with discipline, they cannot censor students.” (“What Constitutes Free Speech for Students?” 1) So, was this students shorter skirt due to her high a real distraction? Now the entire ordeal of her having to be pulled out from her learning environment to change into much less appealing clothes in no way benefited anyone 's learning but prohibited the students learning with the added effect of her self of steam being destroyed. Ava is not the only example of enforced dress codes interfering with learning more than it benefits it, there are hundreds of thousands of these
Different cases have provided different results and reasoning based on varying facts. In an earlier case, Herring v Boyle , the school authorities refused to allow the mother to bring her child home due to unpaid school fees. It was held that there was no false imprisonment as the child was unaware of the detention. However in Meering v Grahame- White Aviation Co Ltd , the defendant was liable for false imprisonment because the fact that there were two police officers guarding outside the office where the plaintiff was in, the plaintiff’s freedom of movement was totally restrained. Although the plaintiff was unaware of the officers’ presence, if the plaintiff tries to leave the office, the police officers can stop him from doing so.
School uniforms can restrict students from expressing themselves, according to the first Amendment of the US Constitution it guarantees that all individuals have the right to express themselves freely so if the constitution says that than schools should not have school uniforms (supreme court). School uniforms also promote conformity over individuality and at a time when schools are encouraging an appreciation of diversity, enforcing standardized dress sends a contradictory message that many people disagree with (Howe II). School uniforms do not stop bullying and may increase violent attacks, overall, there is no evidence in bullying literature that supports a reduction in violence due to school uniforms (Jeffords). Students just don’t like school uniforms a peer-reviewed study by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno found that 90% of seventh and eighth grade public school students did not like wearing uniforms (Wharton). Overall, I think the reasons to implement a school uniform outweigh the reasons to vote against
2.3. Spanking and disciplining children As it is true that spanking cannot teach children what to do and what not to do. Because every human being wants to do something according to his will. These are the following reasons why children should never be spanked: 1. Spanking has serious harmful side effects that parents have no way of seeing, because such effects do not show up until later.
GMI and HDTV will not be convicted because the First Amendment protects commercial speech. Commercial speech is not protected as noncommercial speech. For example, to protect consumers, a state may ban certain kinds of marketing practices, such as untrustworthy or false advertising. In general, a restriction on commercial speech will be considered valid as long as it falls between strict, intermediate, or rational scrutiny rules. Here, the complete ban on video ads "because the games might be damaging to teenagers " is too restrictive: it goes too far in attempting to protect minors for an apparently unconfirmed
The statement was false and the supreme court ruled that it was unconstitutional to cause false danger. The supreme court said “ the convictions of the defendant for conspiring to violate certain federal statutes by attempting to incite subordination in the armed forces.” People now can 't make false accusations that will cause danger, it 's illegal. This man uses the first amendment in a harmful way causing attention to the case. Another case that the supreme court reviewed was “West Virginia State Board of Education V. Barnette” (1943 where in West Virginia the school board requires the students at school to salute the flag. The Barnette children were jehovah witnesses and saluting to the flag went against their religious beliefs.
In New Jersey v T.L.O a vice-principal believed a student was violating the law. The vice principal searched a student 's bag and found evidence the student was dealing drugs. The court said that the search of a student by a school official will be justified when there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the search will turn up evidence that is violating school code or the law. In the case of Klump v. Nazareth Area School District school officials did not see a drug related text message until after the school searched the cell phone. The court said that it 's only lawful to search if the official has reasonable grounds to suspect the search will provide evidence the student has violated school rules and if the search is related to the reasoning for the initial search.
