An honor code or honor system is a set of rules or principles governing a community based on a set of rules or ideals that define what constitutes honorable behavior within that community. An honor code implements a set code that specifies certain rules in their school. An honor code doesn’t benefit students trust in their school system. An honor code can end up making students engage in mistrust, create misuse of the code, and can cause students to be at odds with each other.
According to Alford (2007), a whistleblower is one who speaks out against illegal or unethical practices in school or in the organization where he or she works. Whistle-blowing, is an essential factor for pin-pointing and eradicating unethical activities in most organization set ups (Brown, 2008). According to Sawyer, Johnson and Holub (2010), most individuals disregard the idea of whistle-blowing because they fear that they will be avoided and could end up losing their job careers and also their good names. When an individual is torn between two or more deeds and have virtuous reasons for choosing each action, this is regarded to as an ethical dilemma.
There is a saying in the Oklahoma City Police academy, “bring everything, everyday.” This statement is a lesson to the recruits to make sure they have everything. Because you never know what you are going to need, like black cross trainers, which is what I did not bring. I failed when it came to following through on the statement of “bring everything, everyday.” I did not bring my cross trainers, honestly because I did not think we would need them. This is exactly the type of thinking the training staff at the Oklahoma City Police academy is trying to train out of the recruits. In this memo we will cover why it is important to train to bring everything, everyday. We will also talk about how not having my equipment can affect myself in the
On October 15, 1975 Nine students were suspended from Central High School from Columbus, Ohio. They had destroyed school property and disrupting students from learning and were suspended for 10 days.One of the students amoung them was Dwight Lopez. It was required that the student's parents be informed of the suspension within 24 hours with given reason. If the student were expelled, they would allowed to appeal to the Board of Education. The principal gave the students suspension without holding a hearing, it was okay because Ohio law did not make it required to do so.But they were also later expelled without a right to have due process. The federal courts believed that the students rights were being violated.The District Court held Central High School accountable for its violation of the 14th Amendment, it stated that
A public school cannot suspend a student with no notice or hearing because it infringes on his or her rights. The specific amendments broken by the public school officials are primarily the fifth and sixth. Public schools are not allowed to take away rights and liberties given to the American people. The suspended student was denied his rights to due process and his right to formal informant of crime committed.
Tenure has been a controversial issue for some time. However, lately reforming or eliminating teacher tenure has become a pressing issue covered vastly by the media. Many politicians are actively voicing their opinions on tenure. Many states have new plans for their tenure system. There are many different reforms which are trying to be passed by legislation. It is hard to get reforms passed because one side of the debate must give up something every time a proposal is made. Some argue[who?] tenure is no longer necessary and that it is hurting America 's education system. Others argue tenure provides vital protections for teachers. While each state has its own specifics for how teacher tenure works, most hold a similar form. Each new teacher is given a probation period (probation periods vary among states).
Facts of Case: Jarius Piphus was a freshman at a Chicago vocational high school. On January 23, 1974, during school, Piphus and other students were outdoors. The principal who went by unnoticed saw an irregular shaped cigarette being passed around between the students. The principal also believes that he smelled marijuana. He also noticed a pack of rolling papers being passed amongst the students. Once the students became aware of the principal they threw the cigarette in a nearby bush. The principal took the students to the assistant principal and ordered that they each be given a twenty-day suspension. The school principal kept Piphus out of the classroom for the remainder of the school day. During this time they tried to reach
In this milestone we will be looking at a few key items of employee and labor relations. Some items that this paper will cover are things such as employee discipline, performance management and employee and labor relations. First, we will start by looking at employee discipline.
When a school has specific knowledge of a student’s violent disciplinary record, the school has received constructive notice of the impending harm. In Wood, there was enough to establish breach of duty because the school had been put on notice by the aggressor’s two year long violent disciplinary record. Wood v. Watervliet City Sch. Dist., 815 N.Y.S.2d 360, 362 (2006). For example, in the months leading up to the event, the attacker fought a student in the school cafeteria and threw a chair against the wall of a classroom. The court reasoned that this was constructive notice, and that the school should have intervened when an incident involving the student broke out because they were aware of his “assaultive behavior.” In MacCormack, however,
Academic Integrity is an essential component of third level education because it is the fundamental building block in which we derive our professional ethics and integrity from. It sets a pattern for life long integrity in all areas of life. Our job as students is to construct knowledge honestly and fairly. A culture of honesty earns a great deal of respect. Integrity is fundamental to everything we do in college, I don’t think we can have genuine learning without integrity. The important thing about academic integrity is that’s what learning is all about. It provides an opportunity for an academic institution to come together as a community, because it provides the legitimacy to the pursuits of all students. For example, would you like to go to a doctor who
Classroom discipline model developed by Lee Canter in 1987 (Newman, 2013). The main focus was to allow teachers to teach children in an environment where they "have a right to learn and a right to have a classroom free from behavior disruption to their learning" (Tuckman & Monetti, 2011, p.464). Canter also puts a lot of emphasis on positive reinforcement.
