These test might be cutting ties you can 't get back, next thing you know students are getting cut from their athletics because they failed their drug test and the coach doesn 't want them there. That is the last thing you want because sports may be the only thing keeping these kids going if they have a rough home

Broken Arrow should not establish honor codes I believe that we shouldn’t have honor codes in schools. Honor codes suspend students on acts of cheating and plagiarism. Well what about those students who have never broken a rule in their life? They didn’t even know they were plagiarizing, should they get suspended and have that on their permanent record for the rest of their lives?
Teachers did not go into their profession to be babysitters, and they certainly didn 't go into it to be security guards. Now society is trying to force them to be both. How anyone could possibly secure those weapons so that students could never obtain them would be a nightmare- and unrealistic? And to think that if a school full of teenagers can access a weapon in every classroom that violence would decrease is absurd. There are many negatives to teachers owning guns such as: cost of training and weapons, teachers turning against their students, and keeping teacher who has the gun a secret.
Schools are debating on whether or not to take away sports. Students are constantly getting serious injuries from playing them. Therefore, recreational exercise should be eliminated because they cost too much , students will have better grades, and schools are being distracted by sports and are not focusing on education. Schools are spending great deals of money on new equipment for sports and they don’t realize how much cash they are actually spending. According to Amanda Ripley in her article “Should Your School Get Rid of Sports?”
For the fact students are unaware of the consequences they can and will face when using the drugs. They have no idea of the short or long term consequences they face of hair growth, aggression, which can lead into dessionist thoughts. Many of the influences can come from professional athletes who have also used or still continue to use drugs. But also those peers who surround the student in their sports atmosphere can greatly pressure them to using. By educating the the students and the peers of those students about what the drugs do to affect their body can help influence them to not use drugs but to exercise naturally.
That one person being killed could change millions of lives all because one person decided to make one bad choice. Another thing that goes along with childhood distress is if they have troubles during the day. These trouble could be with teacher and some students when they get in trouble they automatically think they are a bad student or a bad kid. They don’t see that the teacher could have just been trying to help them become better. They could also think that the teacher doesn’t like them and they won’t want to have that teacher anymore.
All of this can put a lot of pressure on someone, rush them into something they don’t want to do and there are no good outcomes. Going to college because someone told you to is possibly the worst reason to go, not only will you be unhappy, but you will get nothing from the experience. College is not the only option, many people have wonderful, happy lives without a degree. A piece of paper will not make everything alright.
The book Jekyll and Hyde shows how abusing drugs can destroy friendships. If we do not stop drug users early in life, they will have much more serious consequences when they grow up. ¨One area of significant controversy regards targeting various testing populations: Is it better to test only students suspected of drug use, to do random drug testing of particular groups of students (e.g., athletes) (Arnold, 1996; DeMitchell, 1995), or to go further and randomly test all students?(Yamaguchi, Ryoko, Johnston, and O’Malley)¨ Some people argue whether we should only test particular groups of students, or students have been suspected for drug use. However, there should be no argument because the answer is simple. Drug tests in high school need to be randomly enforced on all students so that all teenagers can live a drug free, healthy
Passing a standardized test should never be a high school graduation requirement. Tests are difficult for people with test anxiety, tests don 't cover everything students know or need to know, and test graduation requirements will cause teachers to only formulate lessons based around the test criteria. Test graduation requirements could be one of the worst things we could do with our education system If passing standardized tests were a graduation requirement then people with test anxiety would have a great disadvantage on the test. It is said that as much as 40% of children have test anxiety (half of which have an extreme case).
Some people act differently when they take pills and that might affect the rest of the team. If the coach has them take drug test he can find out who to kick off the team. Other than that the long term effects of smoking weed are reduced “(-resistance to common illnesses (colds, bronchitis, etc.) -Suppression of the immune system -Growth disorders
Kids have been consuming steroids in some schools and that the state supreme courts haven’t been taking the drug test serious enough. If you get caught with anabolic steroids you could get a 250,000 fine and you could go to jail. Side effects of steroids is acne, blurred vision, easy bruising, difficulty sleeping, high blood pressure, increased appetite, weight gain, and increased growth of body hair. Steroids in Sports shouldn’t be allowed because there are laws and health consequences that could potentially make you get kicked off of a team, make you end up in the hospital, or even kill you. So schools should start having more drug test and taking them more intent.
Cocaine first appeared in American society in the 1880 's as a surgical anesthetic, and soon became a common household drug, as well as an ingredient in Coca-Cola and in several types of wines. Snorting cocaine was slowly becoming popular in the early 1900 's until the drug was banned in 1914 as a result of the Harrison Act. Abuse began rising again in the 1960 's, causing Congress to classify it as a Schedule II drug in 1970. Later, in the mid-1980 's, crack cocaine, which is derived from powder cocaine, became an enormously popular drug of abuse. Today, synthetic forms of cocaine such as Novocain are still used as local anesthetics for surgical purposes; however, medical use has become more sporadic with the introduction of safer and more improved pharmaceuticals.
