For example, at the University of Virginia, “157 students have been investigated by their peers in the largest cheating scandal in memory,” despite their implementation of an honor code (Source D). However, not only is the University of Virginia a college, but they also consist of tens of thousands of students. On the other hand, Classical is a high school that is populated by approximately 1,100 students. Implementing an honor code at a smaller school is much easier because it requires less effort to educate the entire student body of the value of academic honesty. Therefore, just because an honor code failed at the University of Virginia, it does not mean it will fail at Classical.
The literature review clearly has shown that there is a phenomenon called School to Prison, Schoolhouse to Jailhouse, or Public Education to Prison Pipeline. Therefore, Jeremy Thompson (2016) says, “Zero-tolerance policies in schools result in high suspension rates and expulsion rates among students in general, but disproportionately affect minority students, especially African-Americans because students who have been suspended or expelled are more likely than not to end up in the Criminal Justice
Thus, for Shudson democratic conversation does not lie in the mere gathering of intellectuals but rather it is fostered “in settings where talk is bound to be uncomfortable” (Shudson 306). These feelings of uneasiness and discomfort are the principle reasons why we are taught from an early age to avoid topics such as politics and religion due to the risk of offending someone else point of view yet Shudson may argue this hindrance has yielded a lack of public democratic
Conclusion : It is difficult for an individual to disobey an authority figure or not comply with the morality of the group or society because they are afraid of the consequences they will face from the authority or the power that is above them. In addition, humans are so programmed by authority and the government to obey in order to avoid the punishment that people don 't even give any thought to disobey. Support 1 : Foremost of all, people do not have enough courage to disobey. Fromm said that disobedience is "the first step into independence and freedom”. He means that disobedience sets individuals free and opens their eyes.
Even the officials do not follow the law because they think they are an exemption which is not. We cannot remove the law. What we need is a good official who institutes a reasonable law. Confucius’ idea of a good official should also be attained. Education is not enough for them to say that they are worthy to be a good official.
According to a confidential survey taken in 2002 of 12,000 students, 74 percent admitted to cheating on a test at least once in the last year. This is an appalling number. College students are in the mindset now, because so many people are doing it, that cheating is not wrong so they are doing it regularly. Are people even learning anything in college anymore, or are they just there to learn how to beat the system? There is a lot of pressure to get good grades so that you can get a good job.
School uniforms have been utilized more often by schools in the past to ensure student comfort, and education. However, less and less schools have been incorporating this technique due to parent bias’s and one sided claims. However, school uniforms are actually beneficial to parents and students. Thus, uniforms should be enforced more in schools because they prevent bullying, will allow children to strengthen a life skill, and provide children with a quiet, focused working space. One reason school uniforms should be enforced more in schools is because school uniforms will prevent bullying.
According to statistics, the many reasons students provided for failing courses and colleges were grouped into seven categories, motivation (35%), study habits (17%), academic preparedness (12%), external factor (11%), attitudes (10%), instruction (4%), relevancy issues (4%) (Cherif et al.). Students have mentioned that study habits, and instruction, and motivation have strictly contributed to their lack of success throughout a college environment. Although there are exceptions when it comes teaching students to adapt to the expectations of universities such as special needs individuals, it is crucial that students be aware of what they need to do to meet all standards and maybe even exceed them. The fact that 35 percent of students are lacking the necessary motivation to better themselves and complete college is quite absurd simply because this issue could have easily been avoided. Due to the lack of necessary preparation for the college environment and professors, Connie Matthiessen states that nearly 60 percent of first year college students have to take remedial courses ("Why are so many college students returning home?").
Students are more influenced and encouraged to do what everyone else does and how society handles certain situations. With cheating, it starts off in high school and repeatedly doing so to maintain good grades. Through a survey of 70 high schools, McCabe found out within 24,000 students more than half have admitted in plagiarism, cheating through a test, and copying homework. Cheating in high school is continued to cheat in college up to 70%, the surveys are stabled throughout the years that follow common behaviors as to why students cheat. Which brings out the high school education such as not teaching students how to do their own research and paraphrasing other’s work, leading student to just copy and paste straight from the internet because they lack confidence of their own thoughts so
It can find out schools didn’t sense how important civic education is. As the schools didn’t mention the ethical issues to the students, so the students may not know the whether the behaviors is illegal or not. Under sociological imagination, thieves committing crimes because they didn’t have a correct system of moral values while they were learning, they don’t care they are behaved illegally. To dealing with the theft, schools should provide the civic education as a regular subject and the teachers should serve as model to the students because socialization is effective to the students so that the students’ moral values can be taught and the students will know that theft is an illegal
The National Gang Center Bulletin was written in order to give us information on the presence of gangs in the schools. The percentage of students in both middle and high school really shocks and saddens me; I did not realize that this number was so high. There should not be thirty-five and forty-five percent of students in any grade level affiliated to gangs. This article also reveals that not only are male students joining, female students are becoming members as well. Everyone knows that gang life follows you no matter where you go, so by these kids still being in school, they bring the trouble around other students and if affects and jeopardizes their safety.
It is frowned upon by many in academic institutions, not just from the faculty but from the students as well. Those who earn their grades honestly feel as if they are not getting the full satisfaction they deserve from working their butts off to get the grade they earned. On every campus cheating is considered breaking a law, which makes it a social standard that everyone needs to follow or else face the consequences. Yet according to the “Cheating College Student Epidemic” article, when an anonymous survey was put up about cheating, 60% of the people who admitted to cheating said that they were never caught. They realized that they did something wrong but yet were never forced to pay the consequence so it just seems like a part of the academic experience to them.
A lot more people are interested in enrolling their kids in a charter school these days, and it 's usually because they 've heard great things about them. If you 're reading this it 's likely you 're thinking along the same lines as those other parents, but like the majority of people you might be confused about what a charter school actually is.

It could result in your kids receiving better grades, and this is thanks to the sacrifice they have to make.
Delaware Military Academy was the first JROTC high school. Over the years the program has expanded to thousands of schools across the country, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t had it’s fair share of controversy. Committees like American Friends Service, Veterans For Peace, and War Resisters League have all been actively against JROTC and militarism in schools. From 1999 through 2008 anti-militarism groups have found cases of high cost, low quality curriculum, abuse from instructors, and students forced to join the program without parental consent. The most recent case was in May of 2008, JROTC was “found” to have violated the United Nations Sponsored Convention on the rights of the child by targeting students
As the ones who have voted for the honor code wanted that safe, confidential, and knowing that their hard work and knowledge wasn’t used against them. Thus causing suspicion from the professor or anyone else if the cheating did happened (Source B). Even if that’s so, having them set in place would “create tension and that a subsequent report could not easily be kept confidential…” (Source B). Students
