For example, sweatpants are not against dress code but they don’t show professionalism. They are also just students and should be able to live the child life as long as they can. These reasons are why dress codes should be banned. There should be no school dress code because it limits the freedom of expression, targets girls, and they are hard to enforce. Girls should not have to follow extra rules because boys can't control themselves around girls.
If students are bound to cheat and the honor code is not being enforced or is not fair, why have it? The environment in many schools impacts how students view the honor code. A school with a cheater mentality and an overall acceptance of cheating and plagiarism will have no use for an honor code, since they will not follow it. However, change the environment of the type of students and an honor code can now become beneficial and essential (Jennifer and
Prayer should be allowed in school because some people who want to go to a religious school cannot because of the cost and some areas do not have religious schools around, people who believe in God or just want to pray have a right to freely pray due to the first amendment which says congress cannot make laws against religious practices, and it is said that prayer is controversial, although some teachings taught in school are extremely controversial, so it would not be fair to rule out prayer because not everyone believes in it. Some people don’t believe in polytheistic teachings, yet it is mentioned in social studies books all around. As you can see, prayer in school would not only benefit individuals but groups of people. Prayer in school helps, and does not hurt. In addition to this if any institution doesn’t allow an individual to pray in the U.S.A, it is unconstitutional and infringes on the right of the
Putting a dress code into effect would limit students freedom of expression. Many students inalienable rights get taken away with this rule, “In the 1970 case Richards v. Thurston (3-0), which revolved around a boy refusing to have his hair cut shorter, the US First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that "compelled conformity to conventional standards of appearance" does not "seem a justifiable part of the educational process." Another example of students getting their freedom taken away was at Friendly High School in Maryland where they were not allowed to wear pink shirts to wear pink shirts in order to support breast cancer month. Knowing this they wore the shirts anyway and approximately 75 students got in-school-suspension. Schools with dress codes like those take away freedoms that students will have in the real world.
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.
According to an article published by UCLA, boys and girls develop at different rates. So, it would be more effective for students in single-gender schools, and it is more beneficial for their academic readiness. Which is according to a study published by the Connecticut Education Association. The differences in boys and girls brains reflect upon their behavior, learning, and development. So if they are put in a school with their own gender, they will learn to accept their differences, and not hide them.
If they let some girls play on boy teams then maybe we could have a better country because people are understanding how different people can get along just fine. I think children when children are young they are thought to play together but on the other hand, when we get older we try to ban this activity. I can see why people wouldn’t want girls and boys on the same team because a lot of boys and men are getting hurt from them playing sports and when it comes for a first girl to be on an all-boys team the nation gets all quiet because they don’t want to take a risk and play. I think that some girls are fit enough to play an all boy sport, but the thing that is holding us down is when we have all these all-girl schools and when we have all boy schools. They show kids that they should play with the other gender and they should not learn to be the first when it comes to doing something with the other gender.
Attending either single-sex or co-ed schools have always been a problem; whether it is the amount for the school or the debate on if the students should be around other genders. Parents say that by going to single-sex schools could help the student focus heavily on academics,however what the parents don’t realize is that by going to single-sex school doesn’t help prepare the student for the world. But by going to a co-ed school it gives the student the opportunity to get used to being around and interacting with other genders. Although single-sex education helps students focus heavily on academics, students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the student’s social skills, it's too expensive to get single-sex education and the student will struggle to adjust being around other genders when going to college or getting a job. Students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the
Schools can be a difficult environment for students of the LGBTQ youth. There is a lack of practices and policies that supports LGBTQ youths. LGBTQ students face bullying in schools which results into putting their education at risk. A school is were students should feel safe and welcomed but schools lack protections from discrimination because of their sexual identity. Schools ignore their needs and fail to ensure they get the same academic and extracurricular benefits as non- transgender students.
Those who disagree if sex education should be taught in schools argues that it is not the place of school to talk about sex. It is belong to parent’s responsibility because they know what information is needed by their children. In any case, many parents feel not comfortable to talk it. It seems that most parents are either strongly against or strongly in favor of sex education classes, but very few parents are in the middle ground. Moreover, most students are mature enough to handle a sex education course, but sex education should not be
