Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness. In school, drug testing can discourage the use of it to students. Some students fear that knowing of drug tests will pressure them into not doing drugs.
Some people think that they are great learning tools for students but others think that they should be focused on their school work not get distracted by looking at cute photos, Youtube, Music, etc. I think that cellphones should not be in schools because students could use them inappropriately because students could get better test scores and because they could get distracted while using them. One reason cell phones should be banned at school is because they could start doing things inappropriately. For example the teacher could be helping another student and the kids could start listening to music, youtube, photos etc. You might think that the students will just learn not to use it inappropriately from the consequences but they won 't.
Drug testing is justified as school level but to a certain point. It should only be done to people participating in sports and are truly suspected of doping. It is still a infringement of rights but in order to try eradicate doping in sports, it must be confronted at an early stage. 2.3. No, if people have committed themselves to sport where doping of any sort is not allowed, there is no excuse or circumstance to do so.
Therefore My is that drug abuse should be banned from sports permanently due to the harmful effects it has on the athlete’s and the spirit of sports. People might argue otherwise but taking drugs to better your performance is sports can relate to a student cheating on a test without even studying for it, while other students put in the effort to study hard so they can try to earn a good grade. The use of cheating to benefit is unfair to those who put in the time and effort. However, Performance enhancing drugs have been around where it was used by the greeks in ancient times, sadly the effects of ped hasn 't changed, and athletes to this day still use it too better their performance. For example, Barry Bonds was one of baseballs best hitters ever, putting up video game stats and holding records.
It is also showing younger athletes that it’s okay to take these performance enhancing drugs to be good at sports. This will eventually have a negative effect on our society and prove that taking the safer path of banning them, is much more productive than making sports more interesting or making players
The government tend to close their eyes when dealing with juvenile delinquency. Juvenile delinquency will not be a heavy problem to the country if the government is willing to pay more attention to it. Increasing the authorities in the police officers’ attitude and discipline is one of the ways to get the party to work in the more effective way. Building more reformatory schools for juvenile delinquent is also one effective way. Even though it is said that reformatory school is not an effective way to stop these teenagers from stopping delinquency altogether, it is one of the way of teaching them how to be better as they are taught of moral and religion education in these kinds of schools which can at least help them realize what they had done wrong.
People who use the money they receive on things not necessary for their families constitutes as abusing their aid. Lawmakers and the public alike state that drug testing might be beneficial to prevent tax money from being funneled into illegal activity it does not guarantee that these people will not spend their money on other legal recreational activities and substances. Finally, lawmakers have yet to determine what the restriction and punishments should be for those who can not or have not passed their drug tests. The degree of punishment that would be indicative of a possible rehabilitation of the individual without also punishing the children of that home (Pollack,2006). Each of these reasons is a primary cause of the controversy that have prevented most states from enforcing drug testing before receiving benefits.
They could possibly then start to not do good and their classes or at anything at school because it might have a hard effect on them. If we keep letting it be allowed then this could be a serious consequence and your child's life if they are some of the weaker ones. ‘’Position on Dodgeball in physical education the states,’’Some kids may like it - the most skilled, the most confident.But many do not! Certainly not the student who gets hit hard in the stomach, head, or groin. And it's not appropriate to teach our children that you win by hurting others’’(pg.
According to Jacqueline Stenson from MSNBC “Some will turn to steroids or other performance enhancing substances to try to gain an edge.” If the kids are turning to performance enhancing drugs they will not be cheating themselves of their true performance. The the sports are no fun anymore because the pressure can be too much for young kids causing a lot of stress. Metzl co-author of “The Young Athlete: A Sports Doctor’s Complete Guide for Parents,” claims “Most kids would rather play on a losing team than sit on the bench of a winning team.” By sitting on the bench they are not learning anything and getting better at their sport. So over all competitive sports are a waste of time and there is on free time
Therefore drug testing at sporting events is not a violation as the sportsperson understand they have to subject themselves to random testing in order to keep the competition fair for other competitors. 2.2. Yes. Drug testing should be allowed at school level as there are numerous ways in which an individual can enhance their performance without the knowledge of others. Drug testing in schools should definitely be justified as school is a time in which an individual should learn to compete and participate fairly and not have a mindset based solely on winning.
