To start with, there are holes in the drug testing laws themselves. The laws were made in a way that protects the children of parents who are drug abusers. To accomplish this the children are given a way to still receive that money even if their parent does not qualify for the welfare support. For example, if a parent tests positive for drug abuse the money that the kids need will be given to a trusted family member to ensure that the kids are taken care of. It seems like a good way to protect and take care of the helpless
Although having the freedom to put any belonging in lockers, it would be an advantage to have locker searches. If there was an adolescent that was putting certain possessions of theirs that were horrific to be on a school campus then there would be nothing you could do unless they had locker searchers. If there were a fellow student that had a firearm in their locker, would it be essential that administrators search the lockers in order to diffuse a dangerous encounter that takes the lives of students?
Some people don’t think that we should have guns and some do. The main problem that people think that teachers shouldn’t have guns is the fact they would be promoting violence to the kids and they also think that some kids might be able to steal the guns from the teacher's desk and start shooting. But there is still the group who thinks having guns in school is a good idea. They think it is a good idea because if teachers have guns they can help defend the children by shooting back at the attacker. They can also make the argument saying that it makes parents feel safer to send their child to school knowing that they are safe.
Katie Walls P3 11:00 Is It Safe? Should law enforcement officers be present in schools? This can be a controversial topic because of the recent situations that have happened. Some may argue School Resource Officers should not be placed in schools because, they implant the youth into the criminal justice system at a young age.

Through a survey, I discovered that the Baby Boomer generation views Gen Z as more informed because of all the technology and media of today. News outlets and schools do their best to teach the effects of drugs, and push the understanding of the consequences of using them. This is accurate as each year students are shown a presentation or video, and they place red ribbons around the school showing support of drug awareness. In the past, Baby Boomers never experienced “Red Ribbon Week” nor watched videos or read news stories that made them cognizant of detrimental drugs.
Each year, billions of gallons of soda are sold in the United States alone.” Soda must be allowed to middle schoolers during school hours. Soda should be allowed because kids need more of a choice at school and soda is not the cause of all the bad stuff. Soda must be allowed at middle school because kids need more of a choice at school. At many schools the only things to drink are milk, water, and a few other juices you have to pay extra for.
No Child Left Behind obligated school districts in all states to ensure that all students are proficient. “After New York City’s reading and math scores plunged in 2010, many schools imposed extra measures to avoid being shut down, including daily two and a half hour prep sessions and test practice on vacation days.” (Is the Use”). Standardized tests measure only a small portion of what makes education meaningful, as recent studies have shown. Standardized testing creates disadvantages for students who do not perform well on tests, or do not have the background knowledge to complete questions effectively.
Yes, they could harm the body in the long run, but it’s up to the athlete to take the chance or not. PED’s are just one type of anabolic steroid out of numerous that help athletes perform to the best of their ability and if they aren’t legalized people will still take them. To put it into perspective, not let athletes use PED’s is like not letting high school students get quizzed on from a parent or friend to help them study for a test. Now, what would you do if you couldn’t study for a
Required Immunity Mandatory vaccinations for children in public schools have been the center of much debate since laws were first developed to regulate immunization. Fears from parents about side effects and adverse reactions have steered many away from wanting to vaccinate their children despite the numerous infectious diseases they prevent. These debates have gotten in the way of progression in schools for preventing the spread of disease. To me, the risks of not vaccinating children are far greater than the risks of adverse reactions.
Spring Lake High School’s librarian, Mrs. Draeger, says, “Spring Lake Schools has balanced material and a wide variety of information with true facts so that students can form their own educated opinion.” This statement is very important because if a student is only ever given one side of the story how are they going to form an opinion. Many school libraries ban books about religion, gender identity, politics, and other controversial topics because they are afraid student will then go and do the things that happen in the books. Spring Lake Public School stated on July Twenty-First, nineteen ninety seven that,“Media centers do not advocate the ideas found in their collections. The presence of a magazine or book in a media center does not indicate an endorsement of its content by the media center.
Say No To Screen Free Week Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. Children have many practical purposes that they would need to use “screens” technology for. So by eliminating a valuable learning tool you are jeopardizing kids learning and making a drastic change in their effective daily lives.
According to the article by Michelle Trudeau “More Students Turning Illegally to Smart Drugs” and “Brain Gain” by Margaret Talbot’s both author claim that selling this drug like Adderall and Ritalin can help students to focus on their studies and later both state that this drug have side effects and gets addicted; want more and more pills. Michelle gives an example of student who buy this drug without this prohibition because buying drugs illegally can cause a jail. Also, parents want their children to take these pills so they can focus on their
Playing sports in high school is a privilege. Using drugs is a violation of the athletic program that all students should follow. Students should be tested for all drugs in there system at any time. If they want to illegally make themselves better then that is their choice to make, and if they wish to ruin their
Standardized testing just shows what students have learned from that particular test rather than what they have learned in the classroom. Standardized testing has played a role in public education in the United States. This consist of variety of tests throughout each year for students. "The average U.S. student in a big-city public school will take 112 mandatory standardized exams between pre-K and high school graduation" (Lewis).
Would you want anyone to ban books so you couldn’t further your education? School Board members should not ban certain books because students can get more of a challenge from certain books, you also can get many life lessons from a more mature book, and students also get more of a choice which means more books to read. One reason I believe school board members should not ban books is because it gives students more of a challenge. For example, teachers like to challenge kids to read above their grade level and reading more mature books will get them there. However, how will they get assigned harder or more challenging books if those kinds of books are banned from the school library.
