Sherwood Middle School students are not allowed to chew gum in school. The district decided that gum should not be allowed in school. They think that gum will cause a sticky mess and popping will cause a distraction. There are both pros and cons to the no chewing gum in school rule. Gum helps some people , but some people use it irresponsibly.
In 2012 a peer-reviewed study done by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno, discovered an astonishing fact, 90% of the seventh and eighth grade public school students didn’t like wearing uniforms (Claudene Wharton). If your student, kid, or relative says they dislike school uniforms, then they probably don't like wearing them. School uniforms in public schools undermine the promise of a free education by imposing an extra expense on families. In most inner city schools they require uniforms of some type of uniform, from a certain color or style. In those schools the students parents have to pay for these uniforms which could cost up to $249 for one child (School uniforms).
In Vacaville High School students have access to junk food such as; chips, artificially sweetened drinks, pizza, and much more. According to the article, Bans on School Junk Food Pay Off in California, by the New York Times, “California students had the lowest daily intake of calories, fat, and especially, added sugars.”Imagine what we could achieve as a school and as a community, if we ban instead of limit. We were able to become the healthiest students by simply limiting the schools ability to sell unhealthy foods and drinks in schools. But the fact still remains that limiting those foods isn't enough to end obesity. We must ban any and all bad foods that are sold in our school.
The first reason is that technology can be bad for the health of people. Amy Norton states that, "The AAP has long recommended that children and teens devote no more than two hours to entertainment media each day. That advice is based on research linking more screen time to obesity, higher blood pressure and cholesterol, sleep loss and problems at school"(source 1). This piece of evidence support that ED White should participate in "shut down your screen week" since it is saying that children and teens health will drop and become obese which it effects other parts in good health. Amy Norton agrees when she writes, "Diaz said, even though a lot of the concern with excessive screen time is that it makes kids couch potatoes -- which could affect their physical health -- there is also an important social aspect"(source 1).
It’s just another way of teaching responsibility, not something that disrupts teaching. As for how much of a mess gum makes, students would have no need to stick their gum under desks and tables if they didn’t have to hide it. If they knew they wouldn’t get in trouble for having it, they would be way more likely to throw it in the trash. Again, if someone did break the rule and put their gum anywhere other than the mouth or the trash, they just wouldn’t be allowed to have gum at school anymore. If students simply didn’t have to hide their gum, they wouldn
This is not how the leaders of tomorrow should be raised and taught. Action can be either provoked now, or after names are carved into concretes and memorials have been taken placed. According to NOBullying.com, “...in Britain… half of the suicides among youth related to bullying.” Based on ABC News, the U.S. Department of Education states that over “160,000 children a day… stay home from school because they are afraid of being bullied…” If school uniforms are implemented the numbers of children not showing up to school has the potential to decrease. Access to social media makes it more easier to bully people and spreads faster. According to the infographic below from NOBullying, more than 81% of teens claim that it is more easier to bully online.
It might be unhealthy to stop eating fruits and some other sweet foods, but I believe that it is for my benefit to stop eating any food that contains sugar for three days so I will be able reduce my sugar intake by eliminating unhealthy foods in the future. According to an article by Linardakis, Sarri, Pateraki, Sbokos, & Kafatos (2008), most of the children in preschool who were eating sugar and drinking soft drinks had some obesity and other health problems. The survey took place in Greece and tested children from different genders and ages from preschools up to the age of 7. They found out the children who were drinking soft drinks regularly and eating sugar-contained foods/snacks were two times at higher risk than the children who were taking a little to non-sugar added foods. Since children need more sugar than adults, it is likely for an adult, who takes too much sugar, to have more health problems than a
Switching Schools In 2012 my parents thought it was best for me to leave Saad International School due to the bad behavior and action of the students. Because you’ll see 8th graders after school in the parking lot smoking with the 11 and 12th graders, thinking they’re cool and all that foolish actions. High school students were trying to talk to girls at the end of school. Education wise it wasn’t that great in my opinion, because when I came to RAIS, I found some yawning gaps in mathematics and a bit of English. When I got the news that I was changing schools, I was not ready to leave the school, because I was happy there and had a lot of friends that I'm comfortable with.
This bill should not have passed, the dropout rate had already dropped from 44 percent to 1 percent. The bill sends the wrong message even though it gives the parents the freedom to decide if their child should go to school or not. This is the only upside of the bill but if the parents dropped out then they more than likely won’t care if their own child drops out. All the bill is doing is getting rid of the unruly students and that’s not how to solve this problem(Concord). If the states established the dropout age of 18 then more students would graduate and hopefully move on to get a degree.
The Master Settlement Agreement had the biggest impact because it reduced advertising to children within video games and movies. Truth’s current main purpose is to get children to not begin the habit of smoking. In contrast in the past anti-smoking ads were targeting adult smokers to stop. According to the American Cancer Society, life expectancy had an “increase of 2.3 years for men and 1.6 years for women after age 40” due to the anti-tobacco efforts
Although there are many schools rules that students do not approve of, but the school rule that should be changed is allowing students to chew gum during school hours instead of having it banned. This rule should be changed because most students do it anyway and it keeps some students low-key instead of being dexterous. To begin with, if the principal changed any rule, he should change the rule about chewing gum. The principal should consider changing the rule about chewing gum because many students do it anyway. This rule should only go to those who can make their gum into the trashcan.
In conclusion, lowering the MLDA will promote and teach more responsible drinking, the three year learning period will cut down on underage drinking, and it makes the most sense because the legal age of adulthood is 18. Keeping the legal drinking age the same is doing nothing to help this country or the people in it, more people will die or be seriously injured because of alcohol if we do nothing to promote responsible drinking. This paper might not make a difference in the fight to lower the MLDA, or treat the young adults in this country like true adults, but you
Soda Machines at School!? Should Soda Machines be allowed at school? No, Soda Machines should NOT be allowed at school! This is going to be my important reasons about no Soda at school… One reason Soda machines shouldn’t be allowed at school is lots of kids are too hyper. Probably some kids aren’t hyper but they might get hyper because of the soda.
Families would line up at the nearest city hall and line up for the whole day just to get a shot that prevents them from getting sick. Still, not every child can get a flu shot because it is a long trip to the city hall or they ran out of the vaccines or they did not have anyone working to get the food for the family that day. Here in the United States, some parents refuse to get their children vaccinated. California is one of the seventeen states that allow personal belief exemptions; this means that parents can sign a form that states that their child is enrolling in the school unvaccinated. Some parents believe that flu shots will infect their children with the flu, some believe that it will give their children cancer and etc.
Imagine how those numbers have rose in three years. Speaking on the matter on Oregon’s Public Broadcasting podcast “Thinking Out Loud” Deputy Health Officer Jennifer Vines states that “the adolescent brain is developing. It’s particularly susceptible to the effects of nicotine and we know from studies that nicotine effects the parts of the brain that have to do with intellectual function in the brains reward system.” This can cause many parents to be concerned about their child 's Inability to focus in school setting and obtain the work they are expected to. In response to this, the country is currently working on banning e-cigarette use wherever smoking is currently banned, prohibiting sales of e-cigarette products to minors and requiring licenses for retailers selling E cigarettes and other tobacco
