Have you ever took a drug test and felt like you had to give up your privacy as a citizen? James Acton did in the court case " Acton v. Vernonia School District". After reviewing the case I 've come to the decision to agree with the school district and believe that the government interest in keeping the students safe from drug use weighs more than this seventh graders privacy. “It has been 35 years since Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural speech as President — the one in which he said, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”” (http://centeroncongress.org/) When presidant Reagan said this, not only do I agree with this but i also believe this is why there is limited government.
In 1998, the growing resentment of the immigrants led to the approval of California Proposition 227, known as English Language in Public Schools Statue. Proposition 227 gave Californians the opportunities to choose whether students should or should not be taught primarily in English in public schools. When the Proposition 227 was approved, it was supported by the idea that it would be the “best way to integrate the state’s booming immigrant population
The purpose JROTC is to help motivate the citizens of America to become better than what they were before. The main mission was first introduced since 1916 during the original JROTC when congressed passed the National Defense Act. However this tradition of combining formal education with military studies goes back so far as ancient Greeks. Some of JROTC desired goals were leadership education and training goals for the cadets such as graduate high school, learn the importance of citizenship through American history. So far the extend main mission of the origins of the past does help improve my skills of being right minded, understanding skills and techniques of leadership, and knowing the dangers of addiction.
No Child Left Behind The No Child Left Behind Act is a United States Act of Congress that is a rewrite of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Brought before congress in 2001 and passed into law in 2002, this act was set into place to close the achievement gap with accountability, flexibility, and choice, so that no child is “left behind” academically. No child left behind is a standardized education reform based on the idea that setting high standards and establishing goals that can be measured, will improve individual outcomes in education by having educational facilities held accountable for testing scores.
The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech.” Freedom of Speech helps those who need help and can ask the public without worry of getting in trouble. This amendment was included in the Constitution because now people e the right to advertise their work to others and have protests to things that they believe is right for the country. The amendments were important to the framers of the Constitution. The Freedom of Speech was important to the framers because of, “its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Governments.”
The federal law, “The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006”, took effect July 27, 2006 signed by President Bush. It established the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as “SORNA”. This law played a big role to make federal laws stronger and protect those who cannot protect themselves. It helped to prevent our children from sexual crimes, and and make the internet safer. If failure to register, it’s a federal criminal penalty of up to 10 years of imprisonment.
Huckabee wants to change education for the better. “He doesn’t shy away from calling for the end to the Common Core curriculum standards and the federal Department of Education.” He wants to create a system where education is fair equal. Huckabee makes a great leader. “He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on the less expensive approach of prevention than the costly big-government approach of intervention.”
From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that. Dr. King wants to show the key to whether society can achieve the principles, values, democracy, and humanity that we claim. Things that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote decades ago about the purpose of education still sound
We are going to see to what extent we can say that Macaulay’s “Minute on Indian Education” reflects British society and the western point of view at the time. In a first part, we will focus on the opposition between Orientalists and Anglicists and in a second part, we will see about the western society seen as culturally superior compared to other nations and societies. On one hand, there was an opposition
“A classical book engains messages that influences the readers to be better and aids them in comprehending the human condition; it speaks directly to the reader’s heart, discordant to the current best sellers.” (Ramirez, 2012) The Great Books Curriculum (GBC) is the compilation of traditional classical literature implemented by high schools and colleges to their students. The Great Books Curriculum of 1990 was created by Mortimer J. Adler and used three main criteria to select the books of that year. It is widely known that history often repeats itself, therefore the great books which confront some real-world problems from the past can still be relatable today and in the future.
One of the most notable accomplishments in the immigration reform has been The Dream Act. Maybe this is not what immigrants were expecting, but at least they are a little bit closer to obtaining what they always wanted: a full immigration reform. The Dream Act was enforced in 2012 by the president, Barack Obama, and it’s a kind of immigration reform for people younger than 30 years old and that were students in the U.S. Duhita Mahatmya is an Assistant Professor at in New Century College where she specializes in childhood studies. She states that the referred action is going to help to “Eliminate federal provisions that penalize states for granting undocumented students in-state tuition (as of May 2013, 14 states allow lower tuition for undocumented
With the scandal starting in 2008, America realized that this indignity thrived under George W. Bush’s presidency. The administration which provided the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) within schools. NCLB was President George W. Bush 's reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1964 (Kahlenburg, 2008, p. 1). Those investigating the effectiveness of it have suggested that the Act encouraged the removal and expulsion of "challenging" students through strict performance standards (Kim et al. 2012, p. 25). This criticism suggests the involvement of NCLB as a force perpetuating the "School to Prison Pipeline" connection.
Due to the government checks and balance system congress or the president cannot implement anything without it being checked. Once the President signs an act, citizens must abide by it because of the social contract. We gave them the power to make those decisions and agreed to follow whatever they create as long as it does not violate the constitution or civil liberties. This same idea plays a part in the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System the Bush administration
In my opinion, public educational curriculums and accountability guidelines should be established at the state and local levels where parents/guardians play an integral role in the decision making process. I do not believe standardized tests alone are an accurate measure of a student’s knowledge; their classwork, projects, and literary works also represent a student’s talent and capabilities. In agreement with Robert Schaeffer, a representative for the National Center for Fair & Open Testing, that federal mandated programs such as the No Child Left Behind and The Race to The Top high-stakes tests foster the temptation to cheat because they serve as means to both punish and reward students, teachers, and principals based solely upon test scores (Schaeffer,
Chapter three does a good job pointing out that compulsory attendance laws served as an impetus for challenging schools over both their segregationist and exclusionary policies toward students of differing race and ability (Yell, 2016, p. 36). At the time our government was sending a very ambiguous message to students and their families. On one hand, the law of the land dictated that students must attend school, conversely schools continued to exclude students with disabilities. This inherent contradiction let to parent advocacy groups challenging schools for the fair and equal treatment of their children.
