To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored. Just because history is harsh and not always the most pleasant thing to learn about, does not mean that we can ignore it. Kenya Down with PBS said, “Being uncomfortable with history is not means to change it; people need to figure out how to confront issues.” Down also mentioned how Lee’s book is one of the most banned books
In 1962 A New York State law required public schools to open each day with the Pledge of Allegiance and a nondenominational prayer in which the students recognized their dependence upon God. The law allowed students to absent themselves from this activity if they found it objectionable. The parents upset with this requirement sued the school insisting that this required prayer was against the religion and belief of
Dress code rules teach students that their individuality is not important in addition to discouraging creativity. Some schools have even gone as far as digitally altering school pictures to raise necklines and add sleeves to female’s shirts (Orenstein 2). In a school environment, dress code rules impose on students’ rights to free speech, require extreme difficulty to enforce equally, and suppress students’ individuality and freedom. In today 's Society men and women all over the country are challenging their schools’ dress code rules and their constitutionality (“Taking on School Dress Codes: Teen Rebels With a Cause” 1). Part of withholding the democracy depends upon the people.
This is one of the many reasons why students should wear uniforms. Much of bullying (39%) occurs because of clothing, which would not happen if uniforms were enforced. (Source 3) If uniforms are made One example of uniforms reducing bullying is bragging. If everyone is wearing uniforms it leaves no space for people to brag about their clothes. Nobody can have a trendy outfit and pick on others who have less “cool” clothes.
Kennedy’s Christmas Truce proposal. The school officials discovered their plan and decided to create a preemptive ban where armbands weren’t allowed; any student who was not in compliance with the rule would be suspended and not allowed back until they agreed to abide by the dress code. The Tinkers and Eckhardt decided to violate the policy and were subsequently suspended (“Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District”), so their parents filed a lawsuit on their behalf and were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (Tinker v. Des Moines). The Tinker party felt as though the Des Moines School District was violated the Tinkers’ and Eckhardt’s right to freedom of speech (through their expressive clothing) and did not deserve punishment for their actions. The school board believed the protest was potentially distracting and disruptive to the schools’ environments (Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District).
Students wake up every morning staring at their closet wondering what they are going to wear to school making sure that it fits the dress code standards. school dress codes don 't allow you to dress with the trends without getting dress coded. School dress codes is body shaming Girls by what they want to wear to school. Girls have trouble with dress codes because they can 't show their brushed up or any skin on their body that 's distracting. school should have a dress code because students can express their identity through their clothes, show their creative imagination, and dress codes are unfair to girls.
Brown v. Board of Education overturn the Plessy v. Ferguson decision of 1896, where the Supreme Court ruled in favour of stopping segregation of students in public schools. At first, it would have created a stir, since many parents and students were uncomfortable with the change. However, one can only imagine how important this was for the desegregation. Children would play, learn and live together seeing that the only difference between them were the colour of their skin. This in turn would create a new generation of grownups who wouldn’t alienate other people because of their looks.
Also, girls will no longer be used as scapegoats for the boys who are “distracted” during class and are failing. All things considered, it is just a small amount of schools standing up and making the change; however, in time other schools will finally do the right thing for all of their students and correct their student dress
The dress codes that many adults have put in place to protect us has actually done the opposite. Strict dress codes are not necessary and can even be toxic to young minds. FINGERTIP RULE In seventh grade I decided that I had had enough with my school’s dress code policy. I wore shorts that were against code, mind that they were mid-thigh length, on purpose one day. The principal at the time saw me and demanded that I change.
T.L.O is relying on court president which is similar to the case of Mapp vs Ohio, that if you don’t have a warrant and you go in and find evidence that that is excluded from trial so they shouldn’t be able to use the contents of T.L.O’s purse. This case is a restraint case because it’s not going to change the rules of the school, it’s going to allow for the search. The court argues that it is correct that students do have an expectation of privacy. No student should expect to have a full scale body search. They also say that there needs to be a balancing test with schools ability to have law and order to run classes to make sure legal activities and drugs aren’t in the school to get in the way of educational objectives.
A 6-3 vote in favor of New Jersey was all it took to strike down TLO’s request to suppress the evidence as well as her confession. In previous cases, courts have ruled that school officials were exempt from the restrictions put in place due to their need to enforce authority over their students. The Supreme Court decided that in this case, the exclusionary clause would apply to school officials. This means that because they’re school officials, they don’t have to have as many means to perform a search on the students because students should have a decreased expectation of privacy. Their decision meant that the evidence found in TLO’s purse along with her confession had to reason to be excluded because her 4th Amendment rights were not violated.
Earls, a member of the school marching band and choir. And Daniel J., who yearned to be on the academic team. They argued for the removal of the mandatory drug tests because it infringes on their rights stated in the 14th amendment. In addition, they argued that “...the school district failed to refer to a special need for testing students… in extracurricular activities. Also, that the policy “…did not address a proven drug problem at the school.” The US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma upheld that the policy was in fact constitutional based on the existence of a “special need, indicated by accounts of drug abuse since 1970.” The verdict would be reversed in the appellate court.
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right of expression to citizens. Students are said to keep their Constitutional rights within the school environment, as set in place by the Tinker Standard. However, the rights that are given to students have continued to be controversial and many of these cases have ended up in the Supreme Court. The education system is supposed to help in guiding the students by correcting or disciplining their incorrect actions, but this can sometimes end up in punishing excessively, and this is proven in many cases where the Supreme Court ruled in the favor of the students and their right to their self-expression. Students are not protected by the First Amendment because school officials are
Rule: The first amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.” Analysis: No, the rights of those staff members were not violated. The two pages that were excluded from the newspapers final publication included articles on teenage pregnancy and the impacts of divorce on students. The principal that removed the two pages acted reasonably as the newspaper is an extension of a journalism class and is subject to being under control a faculty member. This may have been different if the school had created a forum of some sort which was separate from the curriculum and allowed all students to post their opinions. If someone was silenced on that site then there would be a violation of rights, however, that is not the case.
