State laws are different due to religion and alot of states agree to let the Lord's prayer to be said. The Lord's prayer is very important mostly in the Christian. Some people disagree with the sayings and often complain about it and will even take it to court since it doesn't abide by the constitution. In the 1970’s school allowed and said the lord's prayer in public schools. A lot of people don't agree with the lord's prayer because its not said in the way their religion says it and it causes a bunch of complaints.
However, social acceptance can be hard to gain while being a part of the Mormon religion. Connor attends a public school in Salt Lake, there is only one family other than the Morning family that are Mormons attending the school. The kids at Connor’s school do not understand that Mormons are not allowed to do things that they can such as no dating, no alcohol or drugs, and no foul language. Most kids are on social media at his age, but Connor is not allowed to because of the content on the web, this disconnects Connor even further from his peers. As society moves forward these things are now prevalent in a kid’s social and everyday life.
Without integrity the honor system would fail due to the lack of honesty that is being set in place by having the students taking a pledge. With this being said students that take school seriously want pure focus and having the honor code it allows these principles to be put in place for better grades and higher rates of success. The author Chris Kahn in Source D uses a quote that shows the students use to commit to the honor code, “On my honor as a student, I have neither given nor received aid on this assignment/exam.” Kahn says that these students write the quote on every test that they turn in to provide a reminder that they are under the honor code. This is a strategy that is a strict form of the honor system letting the students to have complete trust in each other and to have the educators trust. That aside not every student will take a pledge and feel obligated to stop cheating or to be completely honesty.
It is a book primarily of religion and morals. It is not a book of science. " I agree with this statement because when you read the Bible it is mostly about the people who lived in that time and the miracles that Jesus preformed, you may often get a life lesson out of the Bible, but nothing in the Bible relates to science, so why oppose to teaching evolution because of the Bible when the Bible has nothing to do with science? The next point that made me not want to vote to convict John Scopes is Darrow mentions that the Bible is scattered, the Bible has various acts and Ideas. With the different stories and no order how are the teachers of Tennessee going to be able to decipher what about evolution conflicts with the Bible?
This fact justifies these students’ apathy toward school. Most people, especially teenagers, don’t like having to conform to large restrictions set forth by authority. Students are required to learn from a very structured curriculum, which in itself causes some apathy due to the abundant restrictions, and on top of that, it is a curriculum that won’t affect most of their futures. A revised curriculum that still has class requirements, such as being required to take four years of English classes before graduation, but offers more options for college-bound and non-college bound students, such as the option between an average English class a person would see in most schools now where students learn how to analyze literature and a class that teaches communication skills, would help to reduce apathy. By providing options, students would feel less forced by authority to conform and there would be a reduced gap between school and the outside world.
Without having the opportunity to grow friendship over the community divide, nothing will ever change. With the majority of children in primarily an all Catholic or all Protestant school, their ideas about the other religion will not change because they are not given the opportunity. The Catholic school systems were also largely discriminated which made the hostility towards the Protestant and the government
Those who disagree if sex education should be taught in schools argues that it is not the place of school to talk about sex. It is belong to parent’s responsibility because they know what information is needed by their children. In any case, many parents feel not comfortable to talk it. It seems that most parents are either strongly against or strongly in favor of sex education classes, but very few parents are in the middle ground. Moreover, most students are mature enough to handle a sex education course, but sex education should not be
I was not here for first semester, but there are some things in Psychology from a Christian perspective that I do not agree with. Christianity from Noebel’s point of view puts Christian ministers at the same level of Psychologists. I personally believe that a Christian minister can deal with problems, but they are not always guided by the Holy Spirit and Psychologists go to school for problems of the soul, whereas Pastors learn a little bit about problems with the soul, but they are not centrally focused on it for their whole education. Noebel states that, “Biblical Christian ethics is inseparable from theology because it is grounded in the character of God.” I believe that this is absolutely true, we as Christians know what is wrong or right based on the Bible. If it is a “gray” area we seek counsel from the church, or pray about the situation.
How would you feel if you were aware that your constitutional right of the First Amendment was being violated? Today in public schools all around the nation, the right to pray has been taken. As shocking as this information may seem, it is completely legitimate. This controversial decision, made by the Supreme Court on June 25, 1962, has disappointed many Americans over the past few decades. However, allowing voluntary, student-led prayer to be brought back into the school systems can not only benefit students, but also benefit our country by teaching this nation 's youth the necessary religious morals they need to be able to efficiently establish right from wrong, and allowing them to practice their constitutional right of the First Amendment.
The only time that they are civil with one another is on Sundays for church. Again this instance of Christian morals and contradictory behavior pushes Huck away from civilization since they are only at peace during church, but do not apply what is preached to their own lives. In this manner, they strive themselves on being good Christian people, but cannot see the wrongness of trying to kill one another. When Huck asks the youngest son Buck why he meant to kill the other son he replied “Him? He never done nothing to me” (127) but it was an account of tradition that continued the practice.
