Brian Wilson and Laura Finley discuss how they believe instead keeping violence out of schools the laws “prevent student learning” (Wilson and Finley). Regarding the purpose of the policies, Wilson and Finley state, “zero-tolerance policies are, in effect, a means of channeling young people into the juvenile justice system.” Some of the policies have nothing to do with the safety of the school such as being a distraction, and disobeying dress code. These types of infractions allows minority students to spend less time in school and more time home; time home allows students to find trouble in gangs and crime. Instead of sending students home for a dress code infraction, administrators could simply have clothing available for students who have these infractions.
If this were to happen, many students would also be scared to go to school. It is also not worth the great risk that teachers could be killed in trying to protect the students, which could cause trauma among the students, which would affect in a very negative way. Teachers, as previously mentioned, would also need much training in order to protect students, which would cost a large sum of money to schools and tack on a whole new responsibility to the already hard working educators. Overall, teachers should not have guns in schools for three very important reasons. First of all, injury could be caused by students obtaining teachers’ guns.
Schools, especially high schools, implement various rules banning the usage and appearance of illicit substances or materials such as guns and drugs, in their schools. To avoid suspicion, many students resort to placing such items in their lockers where they believe is private and secure. This leads to the difficulty of identifying individuals who engage in such actions without previous records of the student’s actions or claims that such activity is occurring in the school. Locker searches enable the prevention of such predicaments and assist the school in identifying problematic students. This ensures the students, their guardians, and educators that the school has detected potential
The Fourth Amendment protects the citizen against the State, which is an important, delicate, and highly unrestricted function (Garner, 2010). The State v. Polk-Ohio-28 case, New Jersey vs. T.L.O. case, Cornfield v. Consolidated High School District No. 230 case, and Safford Unified School District v. Redding case affects students by means of having the right to be free from unreasonable searches. The Fourth Amendment right is diminished in the school environment, however, because of the unique need to maintain a safe atmosphere where
According to many websites stating about adulthood and the affect that brings it into the topic of school uniforms such as "Procon.org" which states " School uniforms may delay the transition into adulthood". Which some people would argue on, if you still taking orders from someone when your in the process of growing up, then you wouldn 't have a fair chance being independent in the adulthood. People would also argue on uniforms doesn 't have anything to do with students work and grades, etc. Some people has more weakness then others because they are busy being stuck under someone 's wing. There are many requirements that leads to having to wear a uniform.
Though the books that have been banned in the past have controversial issues, they include real situations and problems that can happen in the real world. Books may be banned for going against religious beliefs, but not all people are religious. Novels could also be banned for not being appropriate for a certain age group, but they still include real situations that can happen in the real world, and students need to be educated about them. Therefore, if no books are ever banned or challenged, students would not be restricted from learning about what they will encounter in
Parents and students are increasingly aware of the unsafe environment of schools, so they want to prepare for the worst. However, if Wicomico County Schools practice shooting drills without warning, students will take them more seriously than if it is announced that there will be a
In 2012 a peer-reviewed study done by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno, discovered an astonishing fact, 90% of the seventh and eighth grade public school students didn’t like wearing uniforms (Claudene Wharton). If your student, kid, or relative says they dislike school uniforms, then they probably don't like wearing them. School uniforms in public schools undermine the promise of a free education by imposing an extra expense on families. In most inner city schools they require uniforms of some type of uniform, from a certain color or style. In those schools the students parents have to pay for these uniforms which could cost up to $249 for one child (School uniforms).
Somehow, we still let our so-called leaders tell us it will be fine because they'll think about the families who have gone through what I can only imagine is hell on earth. To make our school safer would make a difference; it could even save lives. My main points are easy ways to make Highlander safer, policies that should be implemented and policies that should not be implemented. There are many ways to keep our school safe. The goal is to make our school feel safe; it should not feel like a prison.
Many students that know uniforms will be beneficial, but don’t agree with school uniforms will continue to disagree with implementing them. It can be easily agreed that school uniforms may take away their self-expression in school, but what matters more in school is the way of learning. It can also be agreed that many students do not accept the self-expression of their classmates and make fun of them. Students, parents, and school administration should be able to recognize the benefits that school uniforms come with.
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. I feel as though private schools have little to no crime because over half of the students in these communities cannot afford the yearly tuition. Older gang members are recruiting these kids because for some reason they look up to them and they know they will do whatever is asked of them.
How are the messages the same? How are they different? How is the use of visual imagery the same or different? “In June of 1971 President Nixon officially declares a war on drugs, identifying drug abuse as public enemy number one. This declaration lead to the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in July 1973.”
The publication by Christina M. Gaudio is critical of the War on Drugs and focuses on its effects on juveniles. She takes time to outline the issues that are present with our current system, and specifically how the system is particularly unjust to juveniles. Gaudio details how the juvenile justice system operates state and federally, then she gives a brief history of the Drug War, the Drug Wars effect on Juveniles, its overall effectiveness, and possible solutions to what she sees as the problem. The Drug War is extremely costly to the taxpayer and is in many respects failing.
