Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness. 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.
Before smart drugs became popular, students had to depend on their own hard work and effort to succeed in school. Many students are capable of gaining success without the use of any drug. On the other hand, some students cannot pass on their own merits. Instead of telling struggling students to take drugs, we should encourage them to work harder and be more determined. Also, there are tons of students who have vowed to stay drug free.
In the article,”pros and cons of standardized testing it talks about the help and changes of testing”,“It is great to have a common set of data to refer to when making instructional decisions and to monitor student growth from year to year” (ward,2). This may be correct, however, standardized testing causes more hurt than helping, it causes a lack of self esteem, it can cause damage to yourself/future and social life and may even cause behavior change. Because of these causes it can a students life by dropping out of school, not getting into a good college or even depression so next time when you think about testing more think
Although there has not been found a solution to completely eliminate bullying, many approaches were found efficient for certain circumstances. It is crucial to minimize bullying in schools as it can prevent the negative phycological effects of those who were present in the act of bullying . This literature review Jad a summery of various articles discussing how to reduce or prevent bullying. The bullies are prone to commit criminal acts on the future while the victim can suffer physiologically. The three approaches the
The belief that education can solve social problems has been longstanding despite a lack of supportive evidence (Goodstadt 1981; Noble 1978; Woodcock 1973). Drug education could best be characterized as "scare tactics" because much misinformation was conveyed in an attempt to prevent substance abuse through fear arousal (Bukoski 1979; Wepner 1979). Neither approach, however, has been successful in preventing a general increase in the incidence of substance abuse (Kinder et al. 1980; Plant 1980). This has been proven as the most effective solution that helps people not to do drugs and to stay away from drugs.
Even though it is said that reformatory school is not an effective way to stop these teenagers from stopping delinquency altogether, it is one of the way of teaching them how to be better as they are taught of moral and religion education in these kinds of schools which can at least help them realize what they had done wrong. Establishing crime committees and placed them all around the country can also help in preventing youth crime from getting worse other than putting at least one liaison officer in every school to keep an eye on problematic students in school. Other than that, according to Heroux, 2011, the “get tough on the kids and that will teach” system is a really non-effective way of getting rid of this problem. Using the hard way in teaching these teenagers is not the right way because teenagers are known to be rebellious and they will play it the hard way if we use the “system”. Hence, the government and the involved parties should know the right way in treating the problematic teenagers and altogether stopping this problem from become more
When one hears "school security" these days, the word that goes with it is "tighten." Indeed, given both external threats and unruly (sometimes violent) student behavior, it makes sense to think that the most sensible course of action is to err on the side of more stringent measures, harsher sanctions and less permissive administration. It largely comes down to liability - whenever an individual with a history of troubled or criminal behavior snaps or becomes involved in an incident severe enough to attract government or media attention, many of the questions asked in the aftermath are variations on "why was this person not in jail." The same applies to schools, where administrators often end up having to justify themselves to parents and politicians who accuse them of being too permissive and failing to isolate or expel a perpetrator. This trend emerged from drug crackdowns and gang panics of the '90s, and gained steam after several school shootings, notably Columbine.
Why Bullies Should Not Be Prosecuted If people ask someone about their childhood memories, stories related to school will also emerge with high probability, because everybody spends a significant part of their lives in these institutions. Since school years are influential, it would be important that children have positive memories about this period, but reality does not always correspond to expectations . Bullying is one of the factors which ruin school experience, and it is gaining prominence. According to Olweus, "A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students" (Dake 173). As data shows, the number of children affected by such treatment is increasing: 27.8% of them admitted being bullied in school in 2011 (“Bullying”), while in 2001 this
Many victims face post-traumatic symptoms and mental instabilities after incidents, creating lasting problems and stress. While school is intended to be a place of educational cultivation, many students are not protected as well as they should be guaranteed and face much greater detrimental consequences to their mental stability, success, and learning. While many believe the educational environment is progressive and adequate in leading itself away from discrimination, many groups and identities face less representation than they deserve, but by creating laws, this will provide them with basic civil rights will provide victims of sexual harassment with fair closure, allowing for society to become closer to true progression. Prohibiting discrimination in any federal education program would grant students protection through their natural civil rights and provide them with a safer environment where education takes precedent. Protecting our students will allow stories to be heard and fair consequences to be allotted to those who violate the rights of
Due to the widespread availability of drugs in our modern world, various families are struggling to repress their children from abusing these drugs in order to prevent their children from numerous problems in the future; whereas, not all drugs are harmful on the human body. Drugs have led to progressive studies such as the internal effects, external effects and medical effects it has on certain individuals. Thus, these studies have risen to educate the younger generation from risking their bright future. Various drugs may contain hallucinogens, which are a diverse group of drugs that alter perception. They can be found in plants or might be chemically made by humans in laboratories.
