Of course, banning prayer is illegal, which is why prayer is not banned, but prayer led by school officials or prayers officiated by the school are. The laws, in actuality, ban prayer led by the school or a school official. While a valid argument, it is incorrect.

It was a peaceful, harmless, and innocent protest. However it opened a can of worms concerning whether or not students should have the right to protest on school campuses. I believe that the rights we are given under the constitution should not be revoked purely because we are on a school campus. Mary Beth Tinker and the other students never clearly voiced their reasoning for being upset about the Vietnam war. The problem that took the case to court was not the subject of the protesting.
School safety is an issue that most adults never could have seen themselves being concerned about when they were kids. Since the laws were written, times have changed. Being given the second amendment right to defend themselves does not constitute the idea that Americans can have semi-automatic rifles. Changing times mean that weapons are advancing along with all the other technology. The average person does not need a semi-automatic rifle to defend themselves.
At Cedaredge High School we do not have a written honor code. Our honor code runs along the lines of bruin pride versus an actual honor code. If a student written honor code that did not change with who you are or the family you are a part of could be established at CHS then it would greatly improve our school environment. An enormous issue the honor code must address is the prevalence of cheating. A school can not function without a set guideline of rules, responsibilities, and disciplinary actions.

Twyla’s mother has taught her daughter to be prejudice against people of Roberta’s race saying that “they never wash their hair and they smelled funny” (Morrison,10), throughout the story some of these prejudices disappear and come about again when the two women meet again and again over long time spans. In her teen years, Twyla works at a Howard Johnson’s where she re-encounters Roberta for the first time and thinks to herself that, “She made the big girls look like nuns” (Morrison,35).
In conclusion, standardized testing should not be mandatory. It should not be used to evaluate teachers either due to the fact that their students may or may not be able to take a test without test anxiety, Furthermore, a standard test does not test one’s knowledge on what they are being taught on their schools because it is a standard test given to everyone. Standardized tests do more harm than help our

Federal Law does not require children to be vaccinated, but it is up to the states to decide if children must be vaccinated in order for a child to enroll at school. Diekema states that, “All but two states allow... personal belief exemption from school vaccination requirements.” Most states offer a personal belief exemption which allows parents to enroll their children in school without getting them vaccinated. Not getting children vaccinated poses as a danger to the other students if one child who has not been vaccinated gets a contagious disease. Vaccinations have had an impact in preventing infectious

We still would have taken the same actions." She further said "If the family is willing to give us written permission, we would be happy to share with the public the other side of the story so they can understand the actions we took”, in other words, Lesley Weaver claims that this matter was not a matter of Islamophobia, but a matter of proper protocol. So from what Weaver tells us, the Irving school district did not fail to follow proper procedure in regards to situations like Ahmed’s and that the school should not be held accountable for any mistakes outside the school, apart in which did not make sense was that the school district decided to fire the teacher. If the school district claimed that what the school did was the right thing to do… then why would the school district take the time to search and fire the teacher. It is as if they were trying to hide the truth with lies, which leds to the question of whether or not Islamophobia was
