The kids should be able to dress the way they want and not have to worry about buying clothes you can’t even wear to school. Students should be responsible with what they wear it might not be perfect but they shouldn't be told exactly what to wear. The reason why we shouldn’t have a dress code is because of how many people get disciplined for the things they wear. The reason why students get sent home is
Most of the students and staff think dress code should not be allowed. Now I wonder why do we actually have a dress code? School dress code does not improve student behavior and need to be eliminated. So I go to oak grove middle school and we have a dress code policy. It contains shirts , shoes and pants.
It just made him even more depressed than he already was. The Catcher in the Rye should be taught in schools because discussing the book with classmates and teachers helps bring out the deeper meaning in the book. We all have to recognize our problems and be there for each other, otherwise we’ll end up like Holden. Denying teachers from being able to discuss the book in a class setting, teenagers would miss the point and would think Holden was a foul person and had no
However, we don’t feel they should be exempt from punishment due to their freedom of speech; their posts were gravely inappropriate and offensive. They intentionally discriminated against a group of people; they had no regards to other’s statuses as human beings which in our honest opinion is extremely unethical. Every human being should be treated with respect regardless of their culture, ethnicity, race, gender, etc. Johnny's leadership roles within his school simply doesn’t convince us that he was bullied into discriminating others, so we feel that he too should face the consequences. As a leader he should have known better.
Gator Town is located in the Learning Commons where there is a strict rule against eating in the Learning Commons. Many students wondered why Gator Town is located somewhere where you are not even allowed to eat. Other students just avoid Gator Town because they do not want to walk into the Learning Commons. A suggestion to improve this problem is to build another entrance door for Gator Town outside of the Learning Commons. This way, it will be faster and students would not have to walk into the Learning Commons.
The take-home message of this article is that, although guns are great at protecting, they should not be used in every situation. Schools of any type should enforce more safety measures that do not include untrained teachers having to have to fire and kill attackers, sometimes former students of their own. We, as a society, should
In “Harrison Bergeron” people aren’t truly equal. In this short story, they took equality to the next level. Most people think that equality is everyone being treated with the same amount of respect. Appearance has nothing to do with equality in today’s society. Although looking the same and having the same level of intelligence may decrease jealousy, people shouldn’t force others to change because of this.
The First Amendment was very important to the kids. It is also about the Fourteenth Amendment, because the state did not agree with the armbands, but the Supreme Court did. Wearing the armbands was a way to express their opinions on the Vietnam War. The plan was to wear the armbands to express their opinions and then fast on New Years Day. The Des Moines School Officials did not like the kids wearing armbands because they thought it was disrupting class and causing too much
So kids will have more energy during the school day. Sheridan Junior High School should start at a later time because it helps improve academics, it improves students health, and gets get more sleep. To start off, starting school later improves kids academics. Studies show that “ Well restes teens get better grades, have higher standardized test scores, and miss fewer days of school.” (Herrington 20). This is important because the better sleep the students at SJHS and SHS get the better grades they will get.
Some people believe books should not be banned in schools/libraries but just because you do not like it does not mean it should be taken away, that is the authors freedom of speech. Also, some say that you should not be exposing bad behavior or language to students but in reality they hear and see these things everyday, and by banning a book, that is not protecting them. Writers have the freedom to write whatever they want and that is a part of the First Amendment, so why banned their book? “The First Amendment allows individuals to speak, publish, read and view what they wish, worship (or not worship) as they wish, associate with
Most don 't want to risk telling on another and become a social outcast. Others simply don 't care and don 't want to be involved. Honor codes end up being ineffective as there is not one that can enforce these codes. When they are implemented time and resources are wasted and the integrity of the students don 't change. Honor codes don 't change or have any effect on the way students behave or think.
This is one of those debates that happens over and over again. My judgement on school uniforms is a yes and a no. It would stop bullying over clothing but it basically tells the kids that they can’t express themselves at school. School uniforms would stop distractions but the children would feel like they can’t show their differences in clothing like some kids like colorful stuff and some have traditional clothing and some like certain things that they like to dress in. School uniforms are not a bad idea but the flaw is how the uniforms affect the students minds.
These people ignore that while the real world can be a very corrupt place, it is also a place of democracy and equal opportunity, two things that are very limited in schools with zero tolerance policies. Zero tolerance policies don’t allow for differentiating between students, which is arguably one of its major problems (Saenz). By responding to every behavioral problem the same, the potential reasoning behind those misbehaving is continuously ignored. “We end up punishing honor students to send a message to bad kids. But the data indicate that the bad kids are not getting the message.” — Professor Russell Skiba
“There is a dress code so people won 't wear stupid and inappropriate things to school,” Senior, Keyairre Gaston said. There are some students that feels that dress code is needed but also thinks it is a waste of time. Some students like dress code because it doesn 't show their social class to everyone and makes them feel the same. “ I believe
The cuts in arts programs has had the greatest effect on the students. Without the arts programs students would miss out on the benefits of learning about art, drama, music, and foreign language. Some of the benefits they would be missing out on are the relieving qualities of art, the ability to express their emotions, and the advantages in the academic classroom. Studies have shown that having art or music does increase the amount of information a student retains (Hawkins 1). The most prominent positive effect are the core classes like math, science, English, and history will have larger budgets and they will be able to afford the technology and supplies they need to stay up to date in the classroom.
