This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. 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.
The law regarding schools’ ability to punish students for disrupting the learning environments in schools needs to be strengthened. Schools in this day and age have been facing a more and more frequent problem of having to deal with harassment and bullying online for while the internet does not increase the amount of bullying it does provide a medium to do so that our legal system is not fully prepared to handle. The internet gives students the ability to put out opinions that can very easily make it to a wide audience and indirectly impact the learning environment regardless if there are at school or not. Teachers have even become targets of their own students harassment and it is uncertain whether it is the school 's responsibility to deal with it or not.
For the most part that is true, however most students that take the time to go get a permit to carry a handgun are more responsible than those who like to party and act out. In addition, the state laws prohibit the carry of a firearm if they are under the influence. The job of protecting campuses should be left to professionals some might say, however if an attacker walks into a classroom and there is only one way in and out by the time the cops get there it will more than likely be too late. That is another reason concealed carry should be allowed on campus.
In addition, it was very embarrassing and unencouraging when everything was revealed. Telling lies had only had a negative effect on his performance. The implied meaning of the stanza is that when your lies are revealed, the feeling of being caught and having everything revealed is not a good one because you will be frowned upon and you will regret what you have done. Also, the way you do things will be affected if you continue to tell lies as if you try aim to do something good, but lie to achieve that aim, the you will never end up achieving it.
The study shows that, half of college student involved in clubs and organization have put their lives at risk because of hazing (Allan 11). College and high school student are the most individuals who are affected with this problem. Some of them feel good about it and some say that, they are “willing to endure this torture because they feel it necessary to be accepted as part of the group” (Chaney 5). Which mean that, these individuals are basically do this just because they want to be in the group but is not because they are convinced that hazing is one way that can put them
Sometimes it is only the subordinates who commence hazing without the seniors knowing or vice versa (Gannett, 2014). It is unreasonable to obliterate the whole group just for the fault of a few. Furthermore, given the chance that they will be considered; the group would learn their lesson and would evade from hazing. As what Haberman (2007) said, “It was important for the fraternity to show that responsibility and accountability count for a lot, and that something positive could come from this incident.” With their learning experience, fraternities would be
Hi this is Anna Mudry & welcome to another edition of Campus Updates where we will look at the newest issues around college campuses from the perspective of students. In this podcast, I will be looking at hazing specifically in college fraternities and how it affects all communities from college students themselves to their families at home. In today’s society, there is a growing number of reported cases in college fraternities of hazing in the pledging process from the higher level members.
Lastly some bullies became a bully because of their insecurity, they may have family problems them self or have been bullied in the past. Some bullies became a bully because their environment, maybe the games televisions that they are exposed to. Some media present to kids being a bully or having negative power over someone is powerful and in control. People that are sad in side them self they don’t want to see anyone around them to be happy.
Hence, they will become annoyed and gradually escape themselves from social connection. This is because Stephen Ilardi (n.d.) , who is the associate professor of psychology, University of Kansas, said that we will be having a highly intense desire to disconnect ourselves from others when we are depressed. Depression is a severe circumstance which can happen frequently when the melancholy and low mood are serious. It will affect their normal life and behaviour causes it to form vicious spiral which exacerbate depression. Therefore, negative thought has caused depression.
The media makes it seem as if they praise things like this. Constantly seeing things on the level of mass school shootings can be dangerous. It can cause more shootings and bad situations. “I use to feel bad for the ones who were killed, but now Eric Harris and Seung Hui Cho became my idols” (“Aaron Ybarra” Herz). The shooter of the Seattle Pacific University shooting was inspired by other people that engaged in the same activity.
On the other hand, students will want to cheat if everyone is doing it. Honor codes that are reinforced by peers will still cheat because the tolerance isn’t as high if the administrators of the schools reinforced them. Most honor codes have many different levels of consequences; it all depends how much it’s going to weigh on the cheaters if it’s possible for them to do so. Within many schools, there are “some sort academic dishonesty culture, thus causing more to encourage others to cheat”, (Source C). It’s so easy for them to cheat and get away with it because everyone is doing it that there’s really no need for a honor code to be put in place at
The school to prison pipeline is an organized nationwide system consisting of local, state and federal education. It is also formed to drive students out of school and into the criminal and juvenile systems, which may result in students dropping out of school early. The school to prison pipeline mainly targets students who are of color and those who struggle with some form of disability. This system is disturbing because, there is nothing being accomplished by removing students from education, which will eventually cause them to struggle before adulthood and even after they reach this point of life. The school to prison pipeline is detrimental because, students may drop out of school, be subject to relying on government assistance to survive, and disregard the decision to further their education because of past experiences.
The Brown vs Board of Education, the landmark Supreme Court decision was a historic win as it finally put the 14th amendment into practice. In terms of the impact it has had on social welfare. The case victory allowed for future programs, resources, services to be distributed among the African American students. Such as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 are services that include students of color. As we move forward more policy’s will be created keeping in mind on how to serve poor communities and how to build schools that can serve the community to reach out to young students in helping them strive regardless their race and economic status.
The District of Columbia’s desegregation case was based on the boycott of the black high school that was overcrowded and in a condition of desperation. Since the District of Columbia was a federal territory, the Fourteenth amendment was not applicable towards the justification of the case’s position. Lawyers of the case selected a different approach of consolidating the Fifth Amendment, which guaranteed the equal protection of the law maintaining the same manner of the Fourteenth Amendment. The decision of Bolling v. Sharpe was simultaneously decided with Brown v. Board of Education, issuing the segregation itself was considered to be unconstitutional. The court ruled the African Americans in the District of Columbia were repudiated of the due process clause under the Fifth Amendment for the reasoning there was no vindication of the
