In many university, students can see hate speech either posted on walls or online which directly hurt the minority people. However, students are big part of population and they are also in an unstable period which at risk of psychological harm. Therefore, university should regulate people’s speech to offer a safe and positive place to live and study. If not, hate speech can rise into hate crime which will not only disturb other students but also trouble the whole life on that students. Even though we need to protect our freedom of speech, freedom is relative but hate speech shut up conversation which has no help on finding the truth and discussion.
The freedom of speech and freedom to share one’s opinion is one of the fundamentals rights of a human. By allowing guns on campus, we are indirectly preventing people from freely express their ideas in important learning activity like debate. Students may be sacred to oppose ideas of the person who has a gun because they don’t want them to use the gun on them. This not only creates a very unfriendly learning environment, but prevents the growth of our country as a whole. America is built on diverse ideas from different group of people, and by not comfortably allowing students, who are the future of this country, express their opinions; we are slowing our growth as a nation.
because Lopez wasn't able to defend himself and wasn't able to having a hearing and his family wasn't notified either. If the court did not try to stop this it would have affected him and everyone else as well. If you think about it everyone had the right to be heard and the court bringing up that it affected the 14th amendment was a good way to protect the right to a hearing, because using liberty and property (property being education) challenged the court and made a different viewpoint on how the case was projected. Now we’re able to have court ruling for suspensions. which is a good thing and also sinces i'm a student i think it's fair that court hearing is given because without it how would a student be able to defend themselves without anyone to make the decisions if they are right or wrong.
She states that students are committed to eliminating problems in society by standing up, which takes a lot of strength (Cutterham 2). There were also protests against Condoleezza Rice speaking at Rutgers University because students disagreed with her views.Cutterham also uses the example of O’Neil’s Spectator article. He states that universities should share the goal of protestors: to create an environment where no one feels threatened or belittled. He also includes the example of how student’s protests led to “the temporary disbandment of the London School of Economics’ rugby club” (3) when the club had
In their essay, “The Coddling of the American Mind”, Greg Lukianoff and Jonathon Haidt express their concern about this movement. They point out how there has been a previous movement similar to this one in that they both seek to restrict speech and broaden diverse-prospective. However, they conclude that, “The current movement is largely about emotional well-being.” and, “…it presumes and extraordinary fragility of the collegiate psyche…” (4). Due to this oversensitivity of college students, some popular comedians have even stopped performing on college campuses. As a result of this movement, the term “microaggression” has risen to the forefront of university campuses.
In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information. Still, other critics of technology in school argue that technology hinders creativity and imagination (Source C). Without any organization, the abundance of information available could be overwhelming and therefore stifle creativity, however if children are expected to think and create their own thoughts and ideas, using the technological sources only as a supplement or means by which to increase efficiency, imagination will not be sacrificed. With the information age, comes the potential for new and useful methods of teaching. Yet in order to attain the most benefits from the new possibilities, teachers must still be willing to teach and therefore act as a
The campus carry law should be banned because of the concerns and negative viewpoint it has from students. A survey of college students in, “Students’ Opinions about Concealed Firearms on Campuses,” came to a finding “that 78% of participants were unsupportive of allowing students, faculty, and visitors to carry concealed handguns on campus” (Eaves 16). The law is making students feel uncomfortable in a place where they shouldn’t. Students should not have to feel uneasy sitting in class and listening to a lecture. This uneasiness can distract students from learning because they are concerned for their lives and continually thinking “who has a gun in here?” Thus, students tend to fear and avoid their professors because of the possibility of them having a concealed carry which can result to a negative impact on professor-student relationships.
1st Amendment and the College Campus Have you ever wondered why some college campus protests are shutdown even though the first amendment is in place? The first amendment does not always protect in every situation. The first amendment wasn’t enforced much until the 1960’s and 70’s, when the anti-war and gender equality protests first started. College campuses have a right to impede on the first amendment if it is restricting someone else’s rights. In many cases some protesters will block off an entrance to an event or will start to harass people walking past.
I guess I will choose that colleges should not enforce a curve on grades because that is cheating and most colleges have a law or prohibition on cheating. In a way this is some colleges cheating in ranking and on grades. Sometimes it’s not really about the grades, but the knowledge that students are able to bring with them and apply it to their future job. Colleges are supposed to prep students for the world ahead of them and help
Although the buildings in our school are being vandalized and tagged both public and private property is being destroyed. The members of the school board should hire someone to observe the school at night. Even Though graffiti is extraordinary to look at, it is illegal and doing it without the person 's permission is vandalism. The school should buy a advanced technology security system to monitor school property. some students will still find a way to use graffiti we should build a wall so we could have A place to express our artwork.
Trauma in the classroom disengages the student and impedes their willingness to learn. Some could even argue that a traumatized student might also disengage other students in the classroom. According to USA Today, “No professor is going to teach over the rape victim who stumbles out in hysterics or the veteran who drops under a chair shouting” (Loverin). The same article also states that the Associated Students Senate in UC Santa Barbara is passing a resolution that will make it a policy to include trigger warnings in class syllabi and class discussions. Notably, this could be the result of increasing awareness for mental health problems and the resurgence of political correctness.
Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom. Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum.
If a teacher feels that a student is blocking a hallway, then he or she may aim, and fire away. As a result, students will be discouraged from stand stationary as it will be necessary for those offending students to bring extra clothes if they persist on being unmindful of other and creating massive traffic jams. Lastly, if all the other parts of my solution fail then we have no choice but to give the offenders a taste of their unacceptable behavior. Students who feel that they are being robbed of their time during passing periods will hold a day in which they will bring their friend and stand motionless at the busiest hallways of Las Cruces High School during passing periods and at the end of the school day. Thus, they will effectively create a barrier to discourage the offenders from getting to class or going back home.
Gary Gutting and Mark Edmundson the authors of the essays “What is College For?” and “On the Uses of a Liberal Education” respectively expressed their opinions on how college isn’t what it used to be. Gutting said some universities don’t teach what they are supposed to; they make some classes compulsory so students end up taking classes that are unnecessary. In result when students are given these particular courses as they become disinterested and aim for average instead of learning the material. Gutting also points out lack of academic engagement is why people misinterpret the existence of the college. He says both students and professors need to work together in order to keep the true meaning of college, according to him is to nourish a world of intellectual culture.
Finally a third reason is due to the fact that people are simply not educated. Voting will change our lives, if we just speak up everything will be just the way we want it. We need to take advantage of our freedom and not let only a part of the state control our wants and needs. It is important to vote because that will be the only way our voice could be heard and it will then satisfy our needs and wants. The
