Bullying is not a new problem for schools, since it has been present for a long time; however, only in recent years its importance has been recognized. Bullying and violence is problem about which we can discuss. Bullying is a word that is expected to be heard. The word "Bullying" is a common word that we hear often.
I believe schools should be allowed to do both drug testing and searches because it can help them identify users so they can encourage those students to refrain from drug use and provide users with the support and help they need to combat addiction, all while ensuring safety on school grounds. Advocates of random drug testing state that with these tests, students may chose to avoid drugs because of the threat of being tested. Their fear of getting caught could help them establish good habits and steer away from drug use well beyond their high
In addition, the teachers have learned about the risks of bullying, consequently enforcing the anti-bully rules to prevent bullying. Students have become well educated about bullying so they are prepared to stand up for themselves or others in cases of bullying. Moreover, uniforms may rid bullying fears, but they may create some as well. Classroom.synonym.com says, “some students don't feel they
The idea of school uniforms in public schools is often controversial among students, parents, and staff. I believe the enforcement of uniforms would create a positive learning environment, improve the safety of students, and promote, equality, dignity, and responsibility. Those who are against a uniform policy may argue that some students would purposely disobey the policy to get call out of class, that academic achievement should be the primary focus instead of a uniform policy, and that uniforms decrease individuality. A uniform policy improves the safety of students by reducing bullying, preventing females from being targeted sexually, and prohibiting clothing that suggest violence or gangs. In Steffen 's article, he states, "Educators report a decrease in violence, a reduction in fights at
If possible and schools listen, and teach students the negatives of cyber bullying, it would be great. The people who disagree with the facts have a weak argument, because 84% of the students will listen to the warning given to them. Angered people may argue, by telling the student the outcomes of the victim after cyber bullying may be traumatizing. But it would be better to inform the children earlier than later. If schools and teachers take note this could all be possible.
The article provides pros and cons of the zero tolerance policy. With the policy, there are controversial views in regards if the policy is effective in schools. Some of the pros were that the strict policies can ensure that the school environment is safe for students and provide offenders with a firm consequence. This can prepare students for real-life situations, e.g. when a person is breaking a law.
Abstract In this paper, children attending a Primary School in St James, Trinidad were studied to investigate their thoughts on the act of bullying. The occurrence of bullying in primary schools, generally, is becoming more prominent. Questionnaires were shared out to children, between the ages of nine and eleven, of the primary school to collect data and to understand their thinking. It was concluded that the children think there should be severe consequences for engaging in the act of bullying and to resolve this issue, the Ministry of Education should place guards and counsellors in every school so that they may be able to curb and stop this activity and help the children who have been a victim of bullying. Introduction Bullying occurs worldwide in many contexts such as in schools,
The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) is a well-respected and known program that is applied in many school settings. OBPP claims that “school administrators, teachers, and other staff are primarily responsible for introducing and implementing the program” (“Olweus Bullying Prevention” 141). Ordinarily, I would agree that teachers need to implement and be primarily the sole administrator of anti-bullying programs. However, I believe that without structure at school and in the home, anti-bullying it is not being enforced properly. Consequently, statistics have proven that “nearly one-third of all school-aged children are bullied each year” (“Bullying Statistics” 139).
“Every two minutes another American is sexually assaulted” (Scope of the Problem). Schools needs to do more to inform and protect their students against sexual assault. Most people are the victims of sexual assault because they don’t know how to prevent it. If people are required to learn more about how to prevent sexual assault like say in a school then the number of sexual assaults per year should greatly decrease. There is also a problem when it comes to a student reporting that they were sexually assaulted in a school.
This annotated bibliography is to inform people how poverty in America affects the education of students. We should not let this affect why our education system is failing, because education should be the student’s way out of poverty, it is a way of fighting it. We as teachers help them better themselves to live a better lifestyle and encourage them to want to get out of the poverty. We as teacher are here to remind them and support them as they succeed along their journey of fighting poverty. Bernstein, J.
The message that this campaign is trying to imply to its audience is resisting drugs and that drugs are not cool or good for one’s health. The idea the prevention is vital within the drug resistance movement. The message is used to help develop the message strategy for the campaign. The strategy of the campaign is to implicate the message through the R.E.A.L acronym. R is for refuse which helps the students build the confidence to say NO to offered drugs, E means for the student to explain why they chose not to take or do drugs, A describes how students can learn to avoid being put in dangerous situations with drugs involved, and L talks about how students can leave the scene and not feel the pressure to stay.
The “Be a Buddy not a Bully” program will operate as a bullying prevention program in order to reduce bullying in schools, and reduce the overall effects of bullying in the community, such as school violence and truancy. The program would 1. Identify at risk students and intervene. 2. Teach students skills and knowledge that promote social and emotional competence and provide a foundation for reflective learning and non-violent problem solving.
Historically schools have been seen as a safe place for students to learn both academically and socially. An environment designed to prepare children to one day enter the world with the skills necessary to participate in their community. Since the Columbine High School shooting in 1999, the safety of American schools has become increasingly compromised due to violence and inspired much public discourse on school safety. Parents and the greater community have an expectation that children will be safe at school and that school districts and agencies will work together to prevent and respond adequately to school violence. Schools that are proactive and intentionally foster organizational trust within their leadership teams could have better outcomes especially during times of crisis.
