Chapter 2 Review of Related Literature The Review of Related Literature of this study focuses on the safety measures every school should implement and in what way this school could improve its policies’ implementation. The researchers would like to determine the factors they could still improve. School security is never easy. However, we are all aware of the teachers and students everyday challenges. As you can see, elementary and high school departments contain mostly children under 18 years old.
Letting a kid do whatever he/she wants to do can be dangerous for a school. Enforcing positive discipline on students can lead to schools being more protected, and that will make a student more happy and successful. In my paper, I stated the evidence last paragraph that said, “Positive School Discipline is integrated into the policies, programs, and practices of a school and is applied systemwide—in the classroom, school, and community—to create a safe, supportive learning environment for all students.” This evidence leads me to think that school’s who have supportive learning environments will be safer. People who believe kids need to be free in school, well, they’re wrong. Keeping students safe is the number one priority for most school’s staff members, and letting kids disregard the rules at school will be breaking that agreement, and will later lead to deeper
Obama (2012) said, "This job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community, and the help of a nation." Therefore, trying to help America as a whole would require a large number of people, but we can make our school safe. It is a small step toward a safer education. There have been many tries to make schools safer, yet we still hear about new ones weekly. It has devastated so many families.
Mentor High School is a mixing pot of a new generation wanting to change this violence. School should always be a safe place and with administrator and board approval, Mentor High could be a wave of change with new security, ensuring a safer environment. To change these alarming statistics, Mentor should implement double the amount of security guards, placing one in each wing of the school. Also, Mentor should put metal detectors at every entrance, activating them everyday at 7:22. School should no doubt always be a safe place, and with harsher security, we can make sure that the statistics do not rise.
When being harassed by another student it’s common to feel embarrassed when told you should tell an adult or parent. No one wants to feel like they are different just because someone is making them believe they are, but telling someone is the best solution to stopping the problem. Another solution to prevent bullying is to take action at your high school and address the problems with your principal or administrator. They could help create posters to raise awareness or make stricter rules when it comes to these kind of things. Also, they could have teachers around the hallways or near their classrooms during passing periods looking for problems to solve.
This includes having all teachers, staff, and administrators on board to prevent cyberbullying from occurring. Here are some ways schools can do to prevent the issues. The first step to do is school can form program and prevention activities and educate everyone to take action when encountering one. The second step is to take action against the issues and stand up for students who are being bullied. Furthermore, the school can monitor areas where bullying can be expected, such as bathrooms.
Finally it would be a good way for the parents to know if their child was safe if there was an real emergency in the school, like a lockdown, fire hazard, if their kid was safe after a tornado, and or any other bad situation that could happen at the school. “But banning cellphones entirely can create unexpected problems. Many parents support phones in schools so they can coordinate pickups and after-school activities with their children. They also want to be able to reach them in case of emergency.”(Cyndy Taymore).This supports the point, because the teachers don’t know how many times a student has snuck their phone out in class and contacted their parents. To ask them to bring them something they forgot or something they need.
This is one reason why self-defense class should be mandatory and included in the school’s curriculum; to teach students to defend themselves from common dangers. Self-defense classes will equip students with the knowledge to defend themselves and to anticipate everyday dangers such as bullying. Bullying is a big issue in the Philippines as 35.57% of high school students in rural areas are victims of physical abuse. The numbers given previously can be greatly reduced if the victims were practitioners of any form of self-defense. Some may argue that victims should not fight against a bully and instead report it to a teacher, but if a simple block or counter were to be used, then neither the victim nor the bully would be injured.
Arming teachers will deter shooters, secure students fears from outside threats, and in the worst case scenario can stop a school shooter before they can commit mass murder. First off, if we arm teachers the likely hood of a school shooter being able to successfully attack a school will be very minimal. Imagine being a school shooter, and seeing a school with perhaps 20 armed personnel, the possibility of
Neglect is the reason behind many accidents that can be avoided. It is with this backdrop that it is important to not only keep the school bus cameras in working condition but always turning them on. You never know when you will need a video footage of an unforeseen event.Nevertheless, it is for this reason that a school operating a fleet of buses plying on different routes day in and day out should turn on the school bus security cameras. It is only when the cameras capture an event that you will be able to produce documented evidence in favor of your argument reviewing a shocking incident. And a quick look at what happened on the event through the recorded footage will dispel many doubts and offer a clarity about the next step to be
