Lingering Harm Posting a video online of a school fight may make students feel “cool”, but people are unaware of the lingering harm they truly do. Schools all around the country try to reprimand the student that is the attacker, but just recently they have begun to come aware of another threat, the person filming, and posting the video online. These actions must be watched carefully, and be brought to an end, as they only have consequences that harm students to a greater level. Having over 1 million views may make posting a video of a school fight online seem like a perfectly fine thing to do, but these same videos bring unwanted attention and escalate the issue. An example of this issue is when two boys at Calvert
An incident prior to the one just mentioned occurred between three students was not reported by Mattie Setzler, but by one of the students involved to Mr. Claude Smith. She detained the students during the day for over an hour when they had other classes to attend instead of reporting it to the office. According to the handbook, “Violence will not be tolerated under any circumstances,” but this teacher is currently tolerating it, by not sending students to the office. These acts of violence are defined by the Searcy High School Handbook as “bullying” because it was an act of intentional intimidation by a student against another student by a physical act that caused a clear and present danger. The handbook also mentions that, “any school employee who has witnessed, or has reliable information that a student has been a victim of bullying as defined by this policy, shall report the
One survey question reads, “If you ever experienced a form of bullying, how did it make you feel? Did you go to someone for help?” One student answered this question by saying, “yes it made me feel really shitty and made me hurt myself. No, I did not go for help, nobody would listen.” This student shows that they chose to not say anything because they feel or know that nobody would listen anyway. This does not only include Madera High staff, yet school staff should start to pay more attention to who they think may be in trouble because school is basically a student 's second home and spend most of their time there. This is why school teachers have a big role in this.
Bullying can cause terrible situations in schools. Consequently, bullying at Columbine High School caused a school shooting. Bullying also leads to suicides of students across the nation. Studies show that bullying can also inhibit learning and encourages antisocial behavior problems. Many schools have been trying to send the message that tormenting children is prohibited.
She believes that she’s saving the teacher from “subsequent mortification” (28). Scout did not think before standing up to ‘educate’ Miss Caroline and did not realize that maybe it was not necessary. It was her instinct, which happens to be very common in young kids. They often do not understand that in this case, knowledge of townsfolk naturally comes over time. About a day later, another student in the class answered Miss Caroline when she did not grasp why another student was behaving a certain way: ‘He’s one of the Ewells, ma’am’” (36).
Making It Through High School While Becoming A Young Adult High school is a crazy place for most because everyone is not going to be popular, very athletic, or the smartest person in the classroom. Also regardless of how it looks outside looking in everyone will have a hard time in high school whether it 's an athlete trying to keep his or her grades up so they can play in the next game. Also, if it 's one of the smarter non athletic kids not making one of the sports teams because lack of athletic ability and the coach has his or her picks. Well, my first piece of advice is you can 't let everything people say get to you by being very stoic about situations. Now I say this because it is a bunch of mean, angry, young adults in high school and most of them will want you to feel how they feel.
Overdosing is one of the biggest concerns to schools and parents. Drugs can lead to stress, which can eventually cause them to commit suicide. When a teenager is addicted, and they don’t get their fix of whatever drug(s) they normally use, it causes stress. Schools depend on drug testing because they’re hoping to catch the student before they make the wrong decision. Even if the drug substance won’t cause an overdose, it still affects teens, so schools are doing whatever it takes to prevent deaths or
Although some teens of “To Tell or Not to Tell” by Mary Kate Frank have argued that people don’t speak up because they’d rather not get in trouble or make their friends mad at them, closer examination shows you should speak up because if you don’t your friends could become severely hurt or die due to your actions. “Together with a few friends, Matthew reported what he knew to school administrators, and police ultimately arrested and charged two students involved in the shooting plot.” This sentence from the article is a perfect example of why sometimes it’s a good reason to be a whistle-blower, a whistle-blower is someone who tells for a good purpose. If Matthew decided not to tell them a great deal of lives could have been lost. If Matthew hadn’t told about the shooting, his life could have been cut short and so would many others who went to his school. He wasn’t going to tell originally, but his friends helped him tell
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.
. Teen suicide is caused by many different things and varies by the person but by educating young people through literature that would be provided by schools, teens could then learn ways to overcome difficult times and learn who to ask for help. Instead of pushing the problem aside, teens should be confronted with the issue. Suicide is a conversation that no teacher or parent wishes to have with a teen. Because of this lack of dialog teens go unaware of the options and help that is out there for them.
