The really great thing is that if the school has staff that are carrying guns, it will hopefully intimidate and discourage shooters so the teachers don't even have to use the guns, making the school a much safer place. Think of the teachers who are injured in school shootings trying to say their students' lives. Whether those students are 5 or 20 it does not matter. Every person deserves the right to protect his or her self. In order to keep teachers in line, maybe do an even deeper background check before hiring them.
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.
When guns are allowed in campus, it adds fear to the life of students and professor. When there is a constant fear, the whole learning environment will change. Allowing guns on campus will “stifle classroom debate- an essential component of learning” (Auyero). In making this statement, Auyero argues that allowing gun on campus take way key component of learning necessary for the students.
It is immediately implied that safety and behavior is an issue there since it is anticipated that students are or will be bringing weapons with them to school. In addition to outside onlookers getting some negative feedback, the actual students attending the school have given inputs of not agreeing with the idea of having metal detectors in schools. According to the Ny Daily News website, students feel unwelcomed and see metal detectors as barriers to their school. Knowing that a school is anticipating the entry of weapons does not change the fact that there are students or individuals expected to attack at
Having to deal with school work, possible extra curricular activities or jobs, and the fact that having it be a requirement would defeat the purpose of volunteering are some of the reasons why it shouldn’t be a requirement. As soon as an opening for relaxation comes along, it’s taken. In my opinion, students should not be forced to volunteer in order to graduate high
Think about how parents feel, they think their children are going to school to learn and be protected. School is about education, we shouldn’t have to worry about our lives here. A walk through metal detector will indicate if a student or person has a weapon on him or her. There should also be armed security guards, like a school resource officer, that would help if anything with a weapon were to happen or anything in general. The guards will be there to protect us.
but we should educate our children on the difference between right or wrong then exposing them to something that fake Therefore Gerard Jone doesn’t prove that violent media is actually good for children. Although people need to know and realize what actually doing to their child. He use logos in his article to convince his reader of his side of the argument. For example, he use a trouble girl that uses rap music for inspiration in expressing herself. He makes a point that nobody should ever deny a child to express themselves in any way
We can save innocent lives and keep schools even safer if we make sure teachers remained unarmed. What sense does it make to try and make an attempt at lowering gun violence in schools we hand out guns to teachers? This is why teachers shouldn’t be allowed to carry
Middle school students are competing in competitive sports which both have a positive and negative side. Some players say that sports can help people lose weight and keep active. But on the other half states that it can be dangerous and can cause future physical damage. Generally competitive sports can be fun but it can come with consequences of regret of young children 's lives. My reasons of competitive sports being bad are that it can take up the participants time and it can pressure or overwhelm them in a sense of them being stressed.
Some schools are even being sued due to online harassment and bullying. Currently schools are forced to improve and create policies on bullying due to so many different occurrences. Madera High School does not have a significant issue with face to face or online harassment/bullying but it is still an issue. Students attending Madera High have admitted to being a part of online harassment: either contributing to the problem or being the victim of such. Madera High needs to improve their code of conduct, create harsher punishments towards offenders, and make sure the students know there is always somebody there for them when put into such a
I understand shootings have happened in the past at schools, but I don’t think having police officers in the school is going to stop someone from shooting someone if they really wanted. It seems to me that the police officers are affecting more things in the school than actually helping. If the police officers are going to stay in schools I think they should only interfere when they are needed, for example when there is violence happening. I think that punishment should be by the schools principle or school board, like it used to be. I cannot seem to understand why I police officer would arrest a four year old child, I feel like they should be smarter than that and should know
The students will have to work hard to play the sport and have good grades so they can play. I believe that high schools shouldn’t take away sports because they will be encouraged to do well in class. If you play a sport in high school it could help you get a better job with good pay. In article 2 it
In the article “School Violence Beyond Columbine: A Complex Problem in Need of an Interdisciplinary Analysis” by Stuart Henry, he makes the argument that perpetrators of school violence typically have “previously been the victim of violence over time, and the extent of the extreme violent event is the outcome of the effects of reciprocal victimization at multiple levels rather than at just one. ”(Henry p. 1256) I will explain what the above statement means by discussing the Individual level, the Group level, and the Institutional/ Organizational level where victims experience the effects of the violence. With each level, I can express examples of student victimization and demonstrate how “it is important to identify a wide range of violence at different levels of society that affect the school and see how these are reciprocally interrelated in the school setting as a process over time”. (Henry p. 1261)
