Board of Education case. This case began because a little girl, Linda Brown, had to walk to the African American school, several blocks further from her home even though the school for white children was much closer. The Board of Education was ignorant and would not allow Linda to enroll into the closer school, the school for whites only. Furthermore, the Browns sued the Board of Education. As a result, the court decided that "state-sanctioned segregation of public schools was a violation of the 14th amendment and was therefore unconstitutional" (Brown v. Board of Education).
Evolution and “survival of the fittest” mean that things are out of our hands to change (Spencer, 1896). For Spencer, women really have no chance of being equal in society with men. Even though they do have the opportunity to evolve, it will still be limited to their role in society and educational institutions probably would not be included for him. Additionally, Spencer might agree with the parents regarding the value of pursuing Liberal Arts, simply because he believes in biological processes, and scientific ways of analyzing social situations. A prime example of this would be his organic analogy that relates society to a living organism, that becomes more complex as it evolves (Spencer,
Books should not be able to be banned because it closes the door for great lessons and deprives people of learning about the world around them. Books should not be banned because it deprives mature readers of information they might need to know about. Arizona State University says that we need to
Shiell, the author of “Campus Hate Speech on Trial,” opposes speech codes on campus and insists the importance of a university to “distinguish genuine harassment from mere offensiveness” (169). In order to achieve equality, a university must adopt “educational and economic measures” instead of imposing punishments due to the fact that educating has a better result in the long run (169). Also, universities must make sure that due process rights are under the protection, meaning that you might not be sinful although you are accused of disobeying speech regulations (169). Shiell believes that universities should come up with some policies that are concentrated on conduct rather than speech since speech is tolerable but not the action (169). Even if a university must set up rules to regulate, it should regulate speech that is a “targeted, intentional, repeated verbal abuse serving no legitimate academic purpose” (171).
Fisher, but they held the the Court of Appeals did not hold the University’s admission policies to a standard of strict scrutiny so the judgement was incorrect. In previous judicial precedent in cases dealing with minority admissions, the Court has held that they are reviewable under the fourteenth amendment, these such cases must be held to a standard of strict scrutiny to determine whether the policies are precisely tailored to serve a compelling governmental interest. If the policy does not meet this standard, then race can not be considered in any admissions process. The Court stated the it was the job of the reviewing court to verify that the University policy in question was necessary to achieve a more diverse student body and the any race-neutral alternative would not achieve the same level of diversity.The Supreme Court said the lower courts did not conduct a sufficient strict scrutiny examination in this case. Justice Ruth Ginsburg wrote the dissenting opinion in which she argued the the University treats race as merely one factor in the overall decision to admit a student, which is permissible under previous judicial precedent.
The opposing view is that students should not be subject to any dress codes on the grounds that they restrict students' freedom of expression, and that they may place unfair cost burdens on poor families. Each of these arguments is examined to show their evidence and to decide whether student dress codes are a reasonable way to improve public schools.
Although there should be policies in place to ensure equal opportunity for all students, regardless of race, affirmative action gives an unfair advantage to students of color, and does not solve the institutional disadvantages that minorities have. Affirmative action is a messy, brute force method of trying to close the enrollment gap. Although on paper it may seem like a good idea to require colleges to admit a certain number of students of color, it actually gives an unfair advantage to minorities. A white student and a student of color with identical grades, test scores, and resumes do not have an equal chance of getting into the same college because one student belongs to a minority. Affirmative action causes the same problem it attempts to solve in reverse.
Academic dishonesty is the opposite action of integrity which leads to plagiarizing and cheating. The results of the academic dishonesty could be very displeasing and could reach even to expelling from the university (Grasgreen, 2012). The consequences of plagiarism could appear not only during academic years but also after the graduation and in the work field.It is important making the choice of not plagiarizing and doing your personal work and actively lead the effort. It is the liberal arts education that gives the idea of how to create own assigned projects and papers. Integrity itself means being honest, trustworthy and fair firstly with yourself and therefore, with the community of the university (The center for academic integrity, 2015).
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a leader and civil rights activist, said he had a dream that his children would live in a world where no one is judged by the color of their skin, but by their character. Segregation leads to problems such as riots, protests, boycotts, and rebellion. Segregated schools cause problems and build barriers between students. The Constitution protects everyone, regardless of race, and states that citizens cannot be stripped of their rights without the process of law. The separation of black and white based on skin color is unfair and unjust.
The schools where more students of color were allowed had funding issues, thus making it difficult to have the latest tools and labs to teach in. Douglass list points of which admission of any would prove the argument: “If prejudice in nature, then there will always be an issues when to races are brought together […] if there is anywhere in the world where white and black don’t clash, then this will prove that prejudice is not natural […] If prejudice if race and color is natural, the ignorance then they to strive to place it away from human relations as a enemy to the peace, happiness […] if color is an offense, it is so, entirely apart from the manhood it envelope. There must be something in color of itself to kindle
