In every school there are set policies and procedures so that all people working within the school are aware and stick to the same rules. Consistency is imperative. All adults working in the school would be : teaching staff, support staff, lunchtime supervisors, kitchen staff, governors, after school staff and temporary staff. There are many policies in schools that children and staff should be aware of. For example : Behaviour policy, bullying, attendance, code of conduct, sanctions & rewards and health and safety.
Secondly, Haysville High School’s population makes students feel safe, confident, and comfortable. Most importantly, Mr. Foster, Principal of Haysville High, makes it his duty to meet
Equality is defined as the state of being equal. That’s exactly why the students in Adkin High School in 1951 decided to walkout. The Adkin High School students demanded equality until they got it. These students wanted what local white high schools had. Local white high schools had books with no pages ripped out, new sports equipment, a large gym, and more. This African American high school had none of that. Instead of new books, they had books with pages ripped out. The things that Adkin High School did have resulted in poor learning. The Adkin High School Walkout helped students get what they needed to learn by the students deciding to walk out of the school.
Developing a plan to take schools in the right direction and improve our education system is easier said than done. The initial challenge is recognizing underlying problems keeping students from learning. This challenge, in part, is due to the fact that the issues may change significantly depending on who is labelling them, whether it is educators, parents, lawmakers and students. In this paper the writer will address bullying and how it challenges student, teachers, administrators, parents and the community at Lakewood Elementary School. In 2012 a bully incident ended up taking the life of a fourth grader at Lakewood Elementary. This incident shocked the school and community. Principal Kidd started Positive Behavior Support

Coming upon my junior year of high school, educational decisions by the Jefferson County School board was slowly coming to an issue throughout the whole district. Many parents, students, and community supporters were frowning upon a particular group of people within the board that had put teachers and students at a disadvantage in education. They were re-evaluating teachers and their income for their own benefit. Teachers would be subsequently be sacrificing a chunk of their income and their work they put into the school, so that the board members and even the superintendent would have an extra raise in their salary. Along that, they were putting pressure on school administration to be tougher on students and that also inevitably made their
The Due Process clause as outlined in the fourteenth Amendment states that a state cannot deprive an individual the right to life, property and liberty without a due process of law. This clause applies to school districts in which the school district must follow a procedure before dismissing a teacher or any district employees. The due process does not align the reasons for dismissal. These are found in the state statutes. In California, these are found in the Education Code.
I have a few questions/ concerns regarding the obligations of STCC faculty who teach sections with SECHS students. This semester, Ms. Lapetria Rhoe is teaching said classes. There appears to be some confusion as to what the extent of her obligations to the high school are. It is my understanding that Ms. Rhoe is hired expressly by the college not the high school. The high school students are taking college courses, and LaPetria 's only responsibility to the high school is to teach their students.
In 2010, Russlyn Ali wrote a letter to their colleagues about reducing bullying in schools (Doc. G). The purpose of the letter was to warn administrators that they must take harassment and discrimination incidents seriously (Doc. G). In the letter, it included an important statement which listed important information on harassment and what it includes. The letter stated "harassment may take many forms including verbal acts, name-calling, and graphic and written statements. It may also include being physically threatened." (Doc. G). The letter also included "harassment does not have to have the intention to harm, but when the conduct is sufficiently severe or persistent as to interfere or limit a student 's ability to participate in beneficial
Your district must implement a Reduction in Force (RIF) based on declining enrollment and budget cuts. You have recommended a list of teachers from your school to the superintendent. One of the teachers on the list had previously filed an EEOC suit against you alleging discrimination regarding a department chair’s position that she was not awarded. You know that she will allege retaliation as the basis for her layoff.
Bullying has been named an “emerging public health issue requiring intervention” (Ansary, Elias, Greene, & Green, 2015, p. 27). As a major problem in schools around the world, the issue of bullying must be addressed in order to keep students physically and emotionally safe. The act of bullying not only affects the well-being of the person being targeted, but it also affects the rest of the school community too. It can be difficult for teachers, principals, and superintendents to make an ethical decision about what to do when bullying occurs because there are misunderstandings about what bullying is, leading to the improper identification of situations. Often times bullying occurs when adults are not around, which makes it one student’s word against another. In addition, the lack of clear and consistent policy and procedures in schools compounds the ethical dilemma of bullying for educators. This paper aims to establish what bullying is, identify the current problems associated with bullying and discuss guidelines for resolving the ethical issues related to bullying.
Is your first instinct to say one with a criminal conviction should never be a teacher? Why or Why Not? Discuss. I personally feel a person who holds a criminal background should be able to be a teacher under the following conditions: criminal conviction was due to a minor infraction, the quantity of convictions is minimal, and the conviction did not occur recently. Minor infractions can included the following: drug possession, petty theft, and driving under the influence (DUI). The quantity of convictions should be limited to no more than two incidents. Finally, the criminal conviction should not be a recent event, as this may indicate the individual is at higher risk for a repeat criminal offense. As mentioned in the book Legal Rights
The organization could start by putting anti-harassment policies in place. These could explicitly indicate behaviors that will not be tolerated, or you could take a more general approach by pointing out the nature of bullying and indicating that it will not be tolerated.
What seems fun and harmless for some students, is painful and degrading to others. Bullying has been a critical issue around schools, but before it was not as dangerous and know as it is now. These do not means bullying was not happening, it means it was not taken into consideration by parents or teachers. They thought it was just peer pressure or a kids game, and sooner or later the kids would be friends again. At one point, bullies think it’s normal to be mean and abusive to other students. They tell the victim, “I’m just messing with you” after aggression. On the other hand, the victim gives power to the bully by not speaking up and being afraid. Bullying can be avoid if the victim speaks up and seeks help from a teacher, parent, the principal, or a friend. Bullying is harmful because the
