Zero-tolerance policies will teach children how society works - when you make bad choices, you will have bad outcomes. Parents and administrative claim that it’s important to keep these policies in schools because they help maintain a safe environment, while teaching students unacceptable behavior is (Sellors). “ Zero-tolerance policies remove difficult students quickly,” said Sellors. After these students are removed from a schools, it is harder for them to get into another school. Although some students who are expelled from school are offered an alternative education at disciplinary schools, those schools fail to provide a “meaningful education” (ACLU).
Potential ethical concerns to consider include breaching confidentiality, ASCA (2010) ethical standard A.7 and ACA (2014) ethical standard B.2.a. Also, the counselor should remind the student about the limits of confidentiality, ASCA (2010) ethical standard A.2.a and A.2.b. Another ethical concern to take into account would include working with the student to form a plan, ASCA (2010) ethical standard A.1.e, and ACA (2014) ethical standard A.1.c. The student and family will be impacted by the ethical standards, and the other student and student’s family if that information is disclosed, will be
The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed. Some examples are responsibility, respect to elders and etc. Human nature is not an averaging of people’s behavior but rather is revealed as we cultivate excellence. Dr. King states, “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true
We need to learn and understand what they are trying to educate us on so we will not be doomed to repeat the same mistakes that society has already passed through. What is the point of going to school and memorizing lessons that we will forget after the test if they don 't stick to our brains? We need to be knowledgeable, persistent, self-driven to make sure we ourselves understand the lesson at hand. Test affect a student 's self-confidence as well, if we pass it 's a win-win but if we fail we lose a little bit of hope we had about what we knew. We doubt ourselves and that is not a pleasant
As reported by the Office of Work/Life of the Columbia University there are both pros and cons of standardized testing. They state that the main benefit is that these tests make schools and teachers accountable, and that they should teach what students need to know for these tests. This, however, has a con; teachers may lose jobs and schools may be even shut if students repeatedly, which will put extreme pressure on both parties, in turn, causing them to teach only what would be necessary, hindering a student’s potential. Another pro included in this report is the ability that it gives educational boards to evaluate sub-groups and develop programs so as to better educate them. Standardized tests also allow parents to see how their children are doing in school compared to the country, state, or municipality.
Research and clinical experience regarding the use of excessive physical punishment (spanking) is that it is generally ineffective since it never tells the child what to do, only what not to do (Dizon, Baldo & Camara 2000). With this, it is surprising to note that despite of the several methods teachers can use to lessen or control misbehaviors of children, some teachers and countries still adapt this approach in modifying challenging behaviors of children. A depressing truth shows that “Physical abuse can also be a result of parental and/or school discipline in which a child is punished by beating or other forms of corporal punishment. It should be noted, however, that there are large cultural differences in the interpretation of corporal punishment as abuse.” Many Western countries classify corporal punishment of any kind as physical abuse, although this is not true for the US or Canada. However, according to CNN.com 31 nations fully ban corporal punishment.
As I read the clients message I struggled in identifying how I should address the dilemma at hand and wonder if perhaps not responding right away and seeking assistance from my program supervisor could help me make the right decision. I was cleared that as a social worker I have the moral obligation to consider the ethical implications of my decisions in others and wanted to help the client to the best of my abilities. As I struggled I considered the ethical principals that constituted the dilemma. The first ethical principle being the dignity and worth of the person- to respect your clients right to self-determination. This can be done by helping the client enhance her capacity/ability to make her own decisions and address her own needs.
The main opposition to cheat in school is immoral, promoted the bad habits, affect self-esteem by implementing a unearned rewards. These concerns are even remotely, because without considering the environment. Children are often rounded up and placed in an organization; they are a hierarchy, from the bottom of the place. Like the hostages, they are captive, even if they are not of the body. They deprived of any power in their own life, including the ability to pursue their own interests, and by a barrage of test results for each
However, the results show that exploiting strict parenting to regulate the children’s behavior without reasoning cannot take any advantages since the children’s resistance was ignored. The children’s resistance is abstracted from the concept of student’s resistance, which indicates that they reject the cultural domination showing by their academic achievement and therefore the alienation from school was contributed. (Alpert,1991)It is reason by the value of themselves was despised by the school. They thought that they are less worth than others. (Alpert,1991) In the equivalent situation, while the children were valued as same as garbage during the time they cannot acquire an A, the parents may show their family cultural domination-academic is important and the one cannot achieve the aim will be punished- to their children directly or indirectly and thus they may attempt to resist this disadvantaged situation by misbehavior.
I tried to express to my peers how the teacher should have handled the situation differently by communicating with the teacher how to fix their teaching style in order to help the student be more successful. I stated in the post, “The teacher in this situation should have worked with you to help correct the communication barrier. Like you mentioned at the end of your post, you wanted to learn how to work with him. This type of situation could have presented itself again in the future, and it would have been helpful to know what things you could have tried." I responded to the millennial post where I stated that I belong to the millennial generation.
We cannot allow our beliefs and personal biases to influence the client. I believe this will be an ethical dilemma to deal. When my desire as the worker is to help the client work to the best of his/her interest and the need to respect his right to act in a way that the client feels best for him, may interfere with my job. Also, I consider confidentiality
Having an Honor Code will fracture the trust that students have with teachers. Would the honor Code really be worth all the examples of division among student body and faculty that I talked about. The answer is No, it wouldn’t be, because Fairmont Heights need a balance and it has it. Students keep to themselves and let other students do their own thing and deal with their own problems. The balance is key to the continuation of Fairmont Heights social order and without it, things would be much worse in the the eyes of students like
ISLLC Standard 2.A. states principals should create a culture of collaboration and trust. If the Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) felt pressured to take on additional duties, then she is not going to develop a trusting relationship with the administration. ISLLC Standard 2.C. states principals should ensure a personalized and motivating learning environment for students.
The two extreme positions either rest on the argument that trigger warnings should be mandatory because victims should not be exposed to traumatizing topics while learning, or that they are detrimental because it coddle students. Both positions need to be examined in order to understand why one side weighs heavier than the other. First, some people argue that these warnings should be a mandatory part of the curriculum for the emotional well-being of students. Trigger warnings are a way for students to have control over an unjust situation where they might feel traumatized. Trauma in the classroom disengages the student and impedes their willingness to learn.
The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education. Later in life you will not be able to simply copy another person or look to the internet to answer all your problems. If you go down that route you run the risk of your employer firing you based on your inability to complete the assigned task. Pelton’s punishment was necessary because in a way it is similar to the consequences you might receive on a job later in life. Within the student handbook for the Piper School District it clearly specifies that the punishment for plagiarism will be an immediate zero on the given assignment.
