Although the world has varying opinions on the actions of random drug testing being helpful in schools, it provides both equally negative and positive impacts on schools it is implemented in. In the Eyes of the Law When a government funded school, or even private school, encounters measures that could potentially be an infringement of privacy on the students and their parents, the majority will turn to The Constitution.
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. This is a well known reason why kids of all ages experiment with drugs. Also a random drug testing can also aid those kids facing peer pressure to use, or who are in a sticky situation, because it can provide
It can be assumed that no individual will do well in every subject or area in life. Writing is a skill that many fail to possess. It is not only a form of entertainment but also the art of persuasion. In the 2015 issue of Psychology Today, Carrie Barron’s article, “Mental Illness Does Not Equal Dangerous, Mostly” explains what factors can influence crime and argues that the mentally ill are relatively benevolent. Logos and ethos are woven into Barron’s article…
This directs kids to make the wrong choice, a choice made from desire. ¨Peer pressure among young people can be a powerful and persuasive force. Knowing they may have to submit to a drug test can help kids overcome the pressure to take drugs. (Student Drug Testing Prevents Against Drug Abuse, Michigan Library)¨ If students are aware of randomized drug tests that their schools provide, they are less likely to take the drugs being ¨pushed¨ towards them.
Who better to speak on this issue than a very intelligent African-American professor at a nationally acclaimed university who also devotes his time to speak with individuals at a correctional facility about drug and behavior course. Unfortunately, I was not satisfied with the credibility he portrayed. Outside of the first and last paragraphs, Hart does not mention his personal connection to the issue, so his audience is left to believe that the information he lays out is based on research. However, Hart does not cite multiple and fails to prove himself as an entirely believable author. After further investigation, one can learn Hart’s impressive credentials, but is a professor of neuroscience and psychology necessarily qualified to be outlining the apparent racism attached to drug abuse?
Drug abuse also affects education in a bad way because learners are taught about how drugs affect their bodies, families and society around them. Even though learners receive this education about drugs they choose to turn a blind eye on this because they still go ahead and do drugs and once they become addicted to these drugs they end up dropping out of school. Education is negatively affected by drug abuse because the percentage of learners who abuse drugs increases as time goes by which means the percentage of school drop outs will also increase as time goes by meaning that education about drugs is pointless to the
-How peer pressure starts: Many youngsters initially experiment with drugs or alcohol because of peer pressure that hovers over them. In fact, it is most of the times a friend who first offers drug or alcohol to the teens. A teen who has friends that drink is much more likely to be involved in drunk driving just because the peer group approves of the use of alcohol. Likewise, use of drugs or alcohol will also worsen if the teen is part of the group who condones using these substances.
With SIDS, Gawande explains that it "is not really a disease, but rather the name doctors have given to one of the great medical mysteries of our time" (203). What he has explained is that the condition is an uncertainty to the doctors, and presenting SIDS as a consideration would mean that the evidence for abuse would be questioned. Looking at Noe's case as an example, Gawande writes that SIDS would be in a realm of possibilities. His line of reasoning is that "the original autopsies had revealed no marks of force" (203). Writing this, he proposes that SIDS may have been an unfortunate event that happened to Noe, even if it was eight infant deaths.
Illegal use of drugs and addiction occurs in young people, and contribute to crime, endangering national security. The Obama administration is committed to restoring U.S. anti drug work by coordinating all previous government wide public health and public safety approaches. The government aims to reduce the use of drugs. (National Drug Control Strategy 2015) And intervention treatment and rehabilitation.
The school district was determined to prove to the Supreme Court that drug abuse was detrimental to the students’ health and even lead some students to acquire injuries while participating in sports under the influence. The school district used the testimonies of expert witnesses, who were members of the medical community familiar with the consequences of drug abuse, in order to show the Justices why it is important for schools to ensure that their students remain drug free. A member of the school’s athletic department also offered a testimony describing how several students sustained injuries while participating in athletics while under the influence. All of this evidence lead the Supreme Court Justices to believe that the school district’s mandatory drug testing policy was reasonable. They supported the school district with a six to three decision.
He reports about criminal justice, the drug war and civil liberties. Radley is also an author of a book named “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces”. This editorial is targeted to persuade lawmakers and anyone else opposing meth being legal. Lawmakers passed laws that made it more difficult to acquire pseudoephedrine because they believed it would prevent meth from being produced. Several years passed and that clearly is not the case according to several
They all simply seem to be arguing against the Drug Testing for the reason that it is just wrong, and unconstitutional. There is no information leading me to assume that the students had previous problems with drugs, and wanted to avoid the test. The parents must have also played a big part, upset with the whole Drug Testing Policy happening with their children at the school. Majority decision of the Court: The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision voted that the Drug Testing Policy was in fact, constitutional.
Policies and procedures concerning drugs intake or acquisition are dissimilar for countries. These policies change on a consistent base. The Medicinal tablets can be classified as drugs, this may lead one to jail because a listed amount of the usage of drugs may be safe today but the next may not. Every Educational property should have strict rules and handling commitment when they come into contact with a student with drug substances, a maximum of two warnings student who constantly disobey should be permanently removed of property for a semester, and also notify police involving the caught of drug
OVERVIEW The article is aimed at finding out the reasons that influenced school districts to continue with the D.A.R.E program despite all criticism and undesirable evaluation evidence presented by the media and some scholars. This program was developed in Los Angeles in 1983. Police officers visited elementary schools (particularly 5th or 6th grade). These officers provided information about drugs and the results of their use.
