As discussed in the Parents’ Guide to the Ontario Code of Conduct, the standards of behaviour directly relate to the issue at hand in the Incapacity Case Study, as it is stated that “School community members must not: give alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age” which took place before the removal of the teacher from the classroom (2). This document outlines the requirements of all school members, including staff, in order to promote a “positive school climate and a safe learning and teaching environment,” a topic that we have discussed greatly in PROF310 (Parents’ Guide to the Ontario Code of
This type of crisis cannot only impact the student who disclosed such thoughts, but also those around the student. School counselors should not work on this type of crisis by themselves, instead, this should include the school’s administrators, and parents. Parents should be aware of any harm their child have on themselves or others. Stone (2013) explains that a suicide assessment should be a tool to underscore to parents/guardians the urgency of the need to monitor their child and get their child professional help. The school counselor’s role is to help parents/guardians find available resources to help suicidal students.
McCarter describes thoroughly the consequences STPP has on the nation’s school-age youth, including but not limited to increased exposure the criminal justice system, and gives solutions that schools can implement that will hopefully limit the overwhelming amount of students coming in contact with the STPP. The article proves that zero tolerance policies are not conducive to a safe school environment and does not foster a safe learning climate for
Government censorship is exposed throughout Ray Bradbury 's novel, Fahrenheit 451. Although the novel exemplifies a pessimistic view on the government, Fahrenheit 451 should be incorporated in all high school curriculums due to the reason that it brings awareness to the reader about the cruel dystopian society of censorship. The despicable nature of censorship should be discussed to educate people on their rights, such as freedom of expression.
It is important for schools to have SROs because the SRO’s role on school campus is keeping students safe and supporting the education mission not only as law enforcement officer but also as a teacher and a counselor. They aren’t at schools “just to bust people.” School Resource Officers are there to teach about the law and students rights and also to protect and help students succeed in a safe learning environment; this equals less crime and more success. Crime and Disciplinary Infractions on Campus and Beyond
Cases such as the one at Dorchester High just goes to prove that having law enforcement present in schools is beneficial and has a positive effect. Yes, there are some cases that officers make a mistake like you see in the news, but maybe we should think twice when judging them. Being a school resource officer is not an easy job and it has many dangers but they want to make sure that students and faculty are safe. Everyday law enforcement officers risk their lives to ensure the safety of others, in school and out of school. Even if having a SRO doesn’t turn crime around immediately in the end there will be some change.
The key assumption of the above punishments would be a result of a safer climate and/or classroom experience for all children as well as sending a strong deterrent message to all other students. (APA Task Force, 2008; Gregory & Cornell, 2009). But in fact it has been established that non-attendance due to the punishments listed above can lead to negative child well-being outcomes such as; poor academic performance, low school attachments, delinquency, drug use, sexual promiscuity, and eventual school dropout which ultimately does not promote a safe and welcoming classroom experience for all children (Sutphen, R., D., Ford, J., P., Flaherty, C.,
It is essential for schools to ensure rules and amendments are concisely communicated to staff, parents, and students; ensure consistency and be unbiased with all students; ensure school officials rightly stress their concern about violence, drug use, and other criminal behavior among the student population and implement positive strategies with students to help them make better choices in life. In addition, the Fourth Amendment plays a major role in the community. It is importance for schools to develop a relationship with local businesses and community leaders; because school aged students are our future community leaders. It is also important for the schools to collaborate with community leaders such as federal agencies and universities to develop and implement programs, which address violence and other criminal behavior in schools as a prevention
According to MacLeod, these teachers become “agents of repression” where they sake on this role because they understand that “conformity to mainstream cultural norms is required of minority or low income students for success in school and in the wider society.” Teachers are placed in this role of teaching, but for bBack students this also means protecting their students from the powers at bay that they do not necessary have control over. This problem is very multifaceted and complex, meaning that solutions need to be very intentional. The ultimate solution would be dismantalling white supremacy and institutional racism because then the repercussions for the deviant behaviors would not be an issue. Society should stop criminalizing the Black body and Black culture. By decriminalizing these behaviors, teachers could focus on restorative justice and academic success, instead of policing these behaviors.
This can cause bullying for younger kids at school. A recent study is testing if intelligence levels are lower if a type of skin color is involved. This is a great example of how racism needs to end because skin color does not determine a test grade or an IQ level. It is difficult to end something that is so popular in today’s times. A large influence on children today is their parents.
