Children and teens should be able to access literature “free of restrictions” (70). Censors of young adult literature “fail to see” the similarities between their “desires to suppress information” about sexuality, violence, and religion and the “successful attempts by dictators to control their countries’ population” (70). Countries who have tried to implement censorship are practicing control over their citizens, which is why Canada should not suppress the population from any literature. If children are told they are not able to read books they are interested in or curious about they will be deterred from pursuing leisurely reading which limits their intellectual
“If free religious expression in the form of prayer is prohibited, school officials are, at the very least, teaching children that public acknowledgment of God is not as important as the things the schools can discuss” (MacLeod). Eliminating religion from schools not only hampers students’ freedom, but also the richness of their
Students shouldn 't wear uniforms to school. Most importantly, I think kids should not wear uniforms at school. One reason is, kids do not want to wear shabby old looking close. Kids want to wear close that are bright and fit their personality, also some kids need comfortable close to wear and not close that the school picks out for them.
If someone is getting bullied outside of school it shouldnâ€™t be a teacher's responsibility to make that stop or try to help it. If a student is getting bullied through social media or cyberbullying I think that either the parents of the children should talk to each other to try and sort it out, or the children themselves try to work out the differences. If the student makes a threat towards the school or to put everyone in the school in danger I feel like the school or other people like the police should get involved in that situation. The parents know about more of their children's personal life and I think that could be a bigger help to solve the problem. Teachers
Is cutting off that creativity with uniforms really a good idea? Even the Constitution encourages us to have freedom of choice as 1st Amendment guarantees no restrictions of freedom of speech of press. By enforcing uniforms, students are restricted from the freedom of choice in clothing therefore contradicting the 1st Amendment. Relating to the thesis, uniforms should not be in schools since it cuts off the imaginative spirit from students.
Teachers really need to be respectful about the students rights. They shouldn’t be able to just take a students phone just because they see it!! It can’t possibly be a distraction, if no one was on it. To me I believe that a specific teacher is just trying to find different ways to try and take our phones. It was said that if the teacher took our phones and there was damage to our phone in his possession the teacher would not pay for the damages.
What if I told you that you couldn’t read your favorite book just because it was considered “inappropriate”? I believe that The Chocolate War should not be banned anywhere and all middle schoolers should be free to read it. I think so because middle schoolers are old enough to read it, it was written to be read by others so it shouldn’t be kept from people, and kids can learn valuable life lessons from it.
Jails are not teaching prisoner's anything. Young children and adults sell drugs to provide for themselves and there should be law enforcements focusing on drugs. They also discussed how the DARE program didn't really work to prevent drug abuse because it gets young kids to know what these drugs are. Now as they teach children that drugs are harmful to your health, most kids don't listen or follow the direction of what they're told to do. Some children will follow that rule but with others, they wouldn't pay attention.
There are a few problems that are faced to educate the public about learning disabilities because it differs from one child to another. They have their own disabilities in learning such as reading, writing and memorising. It is also a problem for the parents with child who has a learning disability because no parents want to see their children suffer with problems. The children are not to be blame as they are innocent and did not choose to be born that way. On the other hand, some people judge these children having no future and it is a burden to teach them.
On the issue of banning books, it seems that the parents know the right things and others do not. In reality every book read in a high school, a parent is always going to state why the child should not read such and such a book. It 's simply opinionated. I believe that if a book has some good moral or is taught in a manner that projects good morality then it should be allowed to be part of the school 's
Whether people in school are mature enough to read it and take all of the explicitcontent is up to them, and obviously they know what they’re getting into when they begin to readit. Having a book published and for people to read it and dislike it and ban it from certain places,must feel awful. I don’t think books should be banned in high school, obviously don’t allowelementary or middle school kids to read it, but it is his way of expressing himself. Humans tendto have a big issue on not judging when another is expressing their form of being, and this is acase where people may have gone a bit too
What I think is the truth Have you ever wondered why the world has so many banned books? There was a time that the world would not lie but that time is gone, we live in a world full of lies that are so secret that the world goes through so much just to hide that one secret. The world tells you lies and books are sometimes the only way to know the truth, yet they are gone . It might just be a person against the book but sometimes it's much more than that. I'm just someone that believes there is more than meets the eye and that people can toy with you and lie to you like you are a puppet for their entertainment.
School administrators should not be allowed to ban books because it’s a fundamental right and books teach us the reality of the world. The first censoring happened in 1487 by Pope Innocent VIII. This has been a problem for a long time. Today, people censor books for a lot of things, so it’s hard to write a book within these guidelines.
A society where books are burned and reading is banned, seems like a far off dystopian land, but it's happening in America, and it's happening now. Books such as Ray Bradbury's ""Fahrenheit 451"" are being banned daily. The book, ironically, is about a fireman who runs away from society because he refuses to burn books and submit to a life without meaning. Although "Fahrenheit 451" brings up issues pertaining to controversial beliefs, it should not be banned because of it's educational value. By reading this book students are exposed to life lessons and experiences all within the confines of a book.
“The state of kids publishing is such that it’s perfectly reasonable to be concerned about what agenda-driven and/or prurient content they’re peddling.” (Hemingway) This means it is very reasonable for everyone to be concerned about what the kids and young adults are reading. If parents are not concerned about what their child is reading, their child will follow many bad influences from books they have read. There are many influential books such as The Outsiders, by S.E Hinton that should be banned.
