Although people believe that this new law is protecting schools from more mass shootings, I believe that allowing concealed carry on the college campus is a bad plan of action because people of that age don 't know how to react in a situation where a gun could be needed, people will abuse their "gun-rights" powers, and it has the potential to cause even more outbreaks of school shootings. Imagine you are a 21-year-old in college. You know the very basics of how to handle a firearm, where the trigger is, where the safety is, where to aim, and that 's about it. You just came from your most difficult class and you 've been assigned so much homework you could hardly
Many have no real meaning behind their decision to walk out other than they get out of a boring class for about twenty minutes. The walkout is a distraction, and could definitely disrupt a school or classroom with hundreds of students evacuating. For instance, students could leave their school and go home during the walk out. This would not only be ineffective for the purpose of the school walk out, but teachers would also be responsible for the students wrongful behavior. Leaving your school to protest can also be ineffective because students could be disciplined with detentions or suspensions.
Patrick McAndrew Mrs.Scruggs English III 10-May-2016 Today many people around the world and even in the US are scared about the next shooting and where it will take place. Many states don 't allow concealed carry on school grounds because they believe that the students are not ready for a responsibility like carrying a gun. Eight states in the US allow concealed carry on campus because the state has voted on it and passed it through government. Other states such as Georgia have discussed the topic on concealed carry but very very will vote for it because they feel students and faculty are not ready for such a big responsibility. Since 2012 there have been around 170 school shootings around the US.
This can be hard because being around younger teenagers, does not prepare them for the following college years which they will spend with adults. However in reality the thirteenth year of high school proves to be beneficial for many students. The extra year allows the students to meet one on one with counselors who can aid in making a viable plan for their
Lowering the drinking age will give these teens the responsibility that some of them are looking for. The drinking age within the United States should be lowered to allow people to begin legally consuming alcohol at the age of 18 as a measure to combat binge drinking, to boost the economy, and to be more reflective of an 18 year old person's status as an adult. Lowering the drinking age to 18 years old can diminish the thrill of breaking the law by underage drinking. There is a lot of excitement that some kids feel knowing they are breaking the law and most likely not going to get caught. Not wanting to admit to drinking “…Which can make rebellious teenagers sneak off to basements and backwoods to binge drink far from adult supervision” (CNN).
Drugs such as alcohol have an effect on all users, regardless of their age; however, alcohol has an especially harmful effect on teens since their bodies are still developing. Studies have shown that alcohol has numerous negative effects on a teen’s body and mental health; for example, a study conducted by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention stated that “alcohol consumption affects the brain’s frontal lobes, which is essential for functions such as emotional regulations, planning, and organization” (“Age”). Teens already have high emotions and difficulties planning and organizing; alcohol will only enhance teens’ struggle. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention also found that alcohol consumption at a young age can potentially cause chronic problems such as memory loss, depression, suicidal thoughts, and poor decision making (“Age”). Teens have a difficult enough time making decisions and organizing their lives, but adding alcohol to the mix will only make matters worse; their bodies are still developing, and they are still learning to be adults.
All over the world, people have debated about high schoolers dropping out of school. Some think that teenagers need their full four years of high school so they will have a full education, but others think that dropping out will help them pursue their dreams. It all started with William Brown in 1955 when he dropped out of highschool at the age of sixteen. It is clear overall that high schoolers should not be dropping out of school. Dropping out of school makes it 90% tougher to get accepted into a job, and it will most likely make you become unhealthy and lethargic.
The root of the major causes of school apathy is the ineffective curriculum used in schools all over the country. The current curriculum is designed to make all students college bound; however, not all students are going to attend college. For the students going straight into the workforce after high school, high school is viewed as a waste of time. According to a study performed by William J. Stull, the salary earned in the early workforce is not notably affected by the skills taught in high school (18). This fact justifies these students’ apathy toward school.
Many early starting high schools have changed their starting times because students grades were dropping and they were not as prepared and focused. The start time here at Mentor is affecting the student 's grades and overall mental health, however, there are many ways that we can fix this issue. Mentor High School starts at 7:22 A.M. and at that time the sun is still rising so some students have to walk to the bus stop in the dark. With extracurricular activities, sports, and homework most students do not have time to relax and spend time with friends and family. According to the national sleep foundation it is natural that teenagers are not able to fall asleep before 11 P.M.
The odds of a fatal car crash are elevated significantly here, as are the chances of suffering from alcohol blackouts, being sexual assaulted, physically injured, and suffering various other harms. An analysis was made by the national College Alcohol Survey that younger college students first drank to intoxication, there’s a larger likelihood that they experienced alcohol dependence while they are in college. The law recently have been going against teenagers throwing party as they want because of the cautiousness of this addiction. Most party needs to be verified by the press which brings less freedom of a part of democracy into the everyday life. But, this actually results into teenagers ending up doing more private events which adds on the illegal habits of
