Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness. In school, drug testing can discourage the use of it to students. Some students fear that knowing of drug tests will pressure them into not doing drugs.
The feeling of loneliness from school bullying in children can cause other effects as well that can make things that are worse happen to them. Parents and other people need to notice this sign of bullying because of what children can do as an outcome of it when they feel no one is their for them. Having health problems is another effect of bullying and cause kids to have long and short term effects on them. These health problems that they get from being bullied can not only affect them but also others around them including their parents and peers. Academics are important for kids to succeed later in life, but kids that have been bullied may not want to go to school because of that one person that bullies them.
In conclusion, stereotypes do exist at Dinuba High School and they exist in other schools across the country. Stereotyping affects academics and performance in schools and it is an epidemic that needs to be controlled as they can greatly impact students either for the better or worse. Props to those who choose to ignore what people say and brush it off as a joke but for many it does hurt hearing and having to deal with stereotypes in current times. Stereotypes exist in the names people are given (eg. Muhammad = Muslim).
The best way for parents to do that is to know who their children are getting involved with, because a lot of the times when children are getting involved with drugs, they are often pressured by their peers which usually include their friends. Another possible reason why children would resort to drugs is because of depression which commonly is due to bullying, especially in the case of teenagers. Drugs causes people to age faster, great unrepairable damage to the brain cells which can cause loss of memories and a decreasing rate in the intelligence level of an individual. They can cause a person to have suicidal thoughts which can lead to potential suicide. Drugs can also cause depression, loss of respect, loss of reputation and can be a great problem for one’s financial life.
There are a few examples of bullying that happened among students in the school such as teasing, hitting another students, stealing things and more. This behaviour was repeated over the time and both students who are bullied and who bully others may have the serious and lasting problems. However, I strongly believe that people should stop practise bullying to others. There are three good ways to support my opinion to prevent bullying in the school. It is monitor the hot spots, reward positive behaviour and open communication.
As a result, less sensitive and low informed school curriculum brings about discrimination of Muslim students by their educators and fellow non-Muslim students. Having little information about any topic creates doubts or misperceptions about it. Similarly, according to Zadal (2012), counselors and educators can unintentionally work against Muslim students’ religious beliefs when they are not informed enough about Islam (p.183). Inappropriate information about Islam in curriculum is an even more problematic issue. Zadal argues that Muslim children spot substantial differences between their knowledge about Islam and the portrayal of their religion by instructors and textbooks in USA (p.185).
It also manifested that 31 percent of the respondents claimed that they were never told by their parents about possible results of their actions; 18 percent admitted they were pushed by peer influence, and 10 percent simply wanted to catch the attention of their crush, their teacher, and, most of them, their parents (Alfonso, 2011). At any rate, bullying is youth violence that is a common problem in school. Its usual victims are the adolescents. With these situations, the aid of the school guidance counselor is a must. Adolescents are prone to health hazards like suicide and youth violence but such hazards could be avoided and eradicated.
For her discipline she got a 10 day out of school suspension for saying something online about her principle (Doc D). That's not even necessary to give a child a 10 day suspension where they said something about the principle. The principle should take it not as harsh, for something so little they made. Because of J.S getting punished, the School District violated J.S.’s First Amendment free speech (Doc D). Schools shouldn’t even bother trying to solve students’ problems because they just make it worse.
A new survey by McAfee found that one-third of high school students admit to using cell phones or other devices to cheat in school. Everyone has the capability to do the work, but some students might feel pressured by their families to keep their grades up. Some students start to feel overwhelmed because of all the work and decide to cheat, even though they know it’s wrong. Many students have academic scholarships, and if they can’t keep their grades up, they know that they could possibly lose their scholarships. I strongly encourage students to manage their time productively and to surround themselves with positive people owing to the fact that if one gets associated with the wrong crowd he or she will be more likely to cheat.
Negligence plays a big role in the learner’s lives as they sometimes ignore the warnings that they get from their elders. So being ignorant can get one into a serious trouble as most of the children put their faith in their friends more than they do to their parents and teachers. Peer pressure is the most concern in our young generations as they rather do what their friends tells them to do and ignore what the teachers and their parents are saying. I say this because the same mistake of peer pressure happened to the Grade 12’s of Crystal Springs Combined School in Polokong .Some of the learners from that school had an alcohol with them and they refused to
