Before smart drugs became popular, students had to depend on their own hard work and effort to succeed in school. Many students are capable of gaining success without the use of any drug. On the other hand, some students cannot pass on their own merits. Instead of telling struggling students to take drugs, we should encourage them to work harder and be more determined. Also, there are tons of students who have vowed to stay drug free.
Drug testing proves if a teen is doing drugs or has done them in the past. One good reason is the school has the resources to put you into a program to help before you get addicted, It is also easier way to deal with families and gossip throughout the school. Another reason is that it is easier to get caught by the school then by your parents because it is unexpected and accurate. Another reason is the 4th amendment states “unreasonable searches¨ But this
So De la Rosa views this as a potential outlet for low income families not as a road block. So both authors believe that Hip hop has influence on culture but the views on those influence is different for both authors. In conclusion
Randomly testing students for drugs in school would allow them to get help from teachers, counselors, and other adults. Many students stated that they would not be embarrassed if they were to be called down to take a random drug test. Randomly testing will help stop drug abuse in student athletes who wish to continue to participate in sports. “An experimental pilot study of student athletes involved in RSDT programs showed an associated reduction in drug use” (DuPont 841). Random drug testing will also make student athletes stop using drugs “if they’re really serious about playing” (Marciana np).
Developing relationships with counsellors, safeguarding team, teachers, parents and students is fundamental. According to me, those interventions in school are essential because they reduce the stigmatisation and the fear, break the taboo about mental illnesses by highlighting the hopeful message that those are medically treatable. Changing attitudes and decreasing the stigma associated with adolescents mental disorders is a goal to achieve in schools. Through my experience, I was shocked to have been told 'If you do have difficulties with that student, it is because he is on medication.' or 'well, that kid is on medication, so do not lose your time with her' after asking for advices on how to deal with SEMH pupils.
Teachers will be able to have more time to prepare for the days’ lesson as well. Changing start time until later may be a waste of time, but it’s more of a waste of time if school starts too early. Changing start time could end up being tough, however it is proven to benefit both the teachers and students. Altering the time will make sure the kids get a great night’s sleep, and also the teachers. This will create a better environment for the schools and keep them awake.
Research also showed that chewing gum improves concentration in visual memory tasks, which leads to my next reason I think gum should be allowed at school. Chewing gum has been significantly proven to improve your memory. Psychologist say people who were chewing gum during a test of long and short term memory, got better scores. than those who were not chew gum. ⅓ of 75% tested chewing gum during
“The positive tests are confirmed by a highly accurate scientific process and then reviewed by a physician who consults with the student to insure that the test is accurate and that there is no valid reason the student is testing positive from legitimate prescription drug use.” If a student has a positive test it is reviewed by a physician and has a conversation with the student that has failed the test and makes sure the student is not on a prescription. If the student is on a prescription then he/ she is free to go. How do schools fund drug testing ?
Even as Western culture no longer relies on tribalism for survival and lauds individual autonomy, adolescent 's bodies may be pushing them to conform to peer pressure in order to protect their health later in life. How They Studied This: Like the Movie Boyhood, Without the Cameras The researchers ' most recent round of health tests was done on 171 people 27 years of age, comparing their body mass index, depressive symptoms, anxiety, and overall health. But these are the same 171 people that the researchers have been following for the past 14 years, starting when they were in 7th or 8th grade.
If schools started later kids would improve and build on building self-esteem, setting goals, using more teamwork, and getting better grades. This tells you that kids that don’t get enough sleep at night don’t improve on these things. You may think that there is not enough time for after school activities but actually there is enough time for after school activities, they would just be later and kids would excel in
However, there is still work needing to be done to help improve the current system. One of the key items needing to be added is education. Schools, as well as parents, are not educating young students about the dangers of alcohol. If education of these dangers is increased, students will have a better understanding of what they are getting into when they do drink. This will help decrease the abuse of alcohol at an early age, and teach responsibility when they do drink to keep themselves and everyone around them
Now some may argue that is not necessary for students to have a drug test just for joining a club, I understand the disbelief in parents when they see this but drug testing is for making sure no students are taking drugs. The test is also for helping out kids who secretly had drug abuse problem and so the policy just wants to help every students that is possibly in danger of drug
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) is the most popular drug education program in the United States. Since 1980’s over a million children across the United States have been introduced to the DARE program. DARE began implementing their curriculum into school systems with the goal of educating children about the negative aspects of drugs and gangs. The principal goal for this program is to deter students from the hard life of using drugs and being in gangs. Even though the DARE program has positive outcomes other than deterring children from drugs and gangs.
How are the messages the same? How are they different? How is the use of visual imagery the same or different? “In June of 1971 President Nixon officially declares a war on drugs, identifying drug abuse as public enemy number one. This declaration lead to the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in July 1973.”
The publication by Christina M. Gaudio is critical of the War on Drugs and focuses on its effects on juveniles. She takes time to outline the issues that are present with our current system, and specifically how the system is particularly unjust to juveniles. Gaudio details how the juvenile justice system operates state and federally, then she gives a brief history of the Drug War, the Drug Wars effect on Juveniles, its overall effectiveness, and possible solutions to what she sees as the problem. The Drug War is extremely costly to the taxpayer and is in many respects failing.
