Mr. Munchy put out a statement saying that during the week he will have ban teens from his restaurant so adults could have lunch without noisy messy teenagers. Because of this there has been much conflict between both parties (those who are for it, or against it). I think that Mr. Munchy should not be able to ban all teens from his restaurant. If Mr. Munchy bans all teens it is considered discrimination to an entire section of people. There is many other reasons why I think this is wrong for Munchy to do.
Many parents say that the Outsiders has too much violence. Also it has too much death and fights that teenagers don’t need to learn at school. The book The Outsiders is a bad influence on Junior high students. So therefor 7th graders should not read The Outsiders. The first reason that the outsiders should be ban because there is too much fights and people getting jumped in the book Outsiders.
Many parents also fear that children would have the chance to skip school of get into drugs and alcohol while they are loose for their lunch break. People of the communities have also expressed their fears of increased traffic and increased risk of traffic collisions (?9 Primary Pros and Cons of Open Campus Lunch?). Not only can open lunches cause health problems, but they can lead to other dangers such as a car crash or
In Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod provides a brief summary of how teens are affected by their peers ridiculing and judgement. *insert supporting (integrated) quote from the article* From this, it is clear to see that it isn’t harmless what is being done in these situations. Kids are going home from school feeling broken, embarrassed, and outcast by those who were once their friends. Anyone can tell stories about how high school is all a popularity contest of different cliques, but no one is ever really willing to talk about how extreme this contest really is. There have been several news articles chronicling the bullying of kids who are designated as ‘too intelligent’ and are thus being bullied because of it.
(Elliott) When a college was using a book as a requirement some of the students decided to not read it due to some of the things that the book had in it. The writer Keane said, “Surely those college students have seen 10 billion images more obscene on the side of a bus than the few raw or suggestive drawings in the book.” The author also said other important things about this book and they are “We have just found new and different offenses to be outraged by, and most of them can be found in the books we teach.” and also “An unfortunate commonplace in our educational institution these days is the notion that students must be protected from certain literature because it could damage them or trigger hidden traumas.” These quotes are so true in the sense that these students need to learn about some of these topics even though they may not be comfortable with it because it may be a part of society that they need to become more
Cheez-its are not allowed in the cafeteria because every student in the cafeteria started a food fight with Cheez-its. The students and Mrs. Conway have been planning to pull a prank on Mr. Carter because it was his last year as a principal. While we were planning the prank, students didn’t want to do it because they thought that they would have to be put into detention. On November 14, 2012, everyone brought four to five packages of Cheez-its to lunch, but some people brought more just so the fight will be longer. Mrs. Conway sat down with the students, so she could be apart of the food fight too.
A lot of teens and college students eat snacks that are not healthy such as chips, pop, candy, etc. The majority of people might only eat one meal that contains the nutritional foods because they are on the go or just simply do not care. There are three major reasons as to why people are lacking in nutrition: nutrition is not taught in school, marketing persuades public opinion about food, and
Leading up to this, the context provides evidence that at this time the family was tight on money primarily because Rosemary refused to get a job. Rex also mentions going to the "Owl Club", a casino, to "earn extra money" for the family. During this time period, his hostile actions towards Rosemary along with constant screaming and yelling depict his overconsumption of alcohol. His reckless drinking and driving also put his family in danger while driving at outrageous speeds, swerving, and driving the car off the road. Alcohol has been proven to cause an increase in domestic violence and overall hostility in a family and severely impairs driving skills.
(Taylor) This anger and hostility was not confined to school grounds alone, as it began to spread into the community where it caused more attacks and violence based on race. These actions and words used against students caused Mayor Kevin White to enact a ban of crowds greater than 3 to assemble near any public school in fear of retaliation. (Balloon-Rosen) ROAR, or Restore Our Alienated Rights was an anti-busing group formed in opposition to the mixing of schools and called for a two week boycott of the Boston Public Schools and the white students attendance at these city schools decreased dramatically after this. President Ford was seen as opposing the forced busing order yet told the citizens of Boston that they must obey the new law, regardless of his viewpoint.
This type of peer pressure -usually- involves direct confrontation, and it is hard for teens to come up with an excuse (on the spot) that others find valid and reasonable. Usually everyone feels quite guilty with whatever decision he or she goes with. Like for example if you say yes, (and agree to skip school) that day, you would feel guilty and crummy you disappointed your parents, but on the other hand if you say no and make up and excuse you could feel left out because all your friends skipped school and you’re the only one here not having fun. Indirect peer pressure can seem as convincing as direct peer pressure. An example of indirect peer pressure is like when a friend of yours keeps on talking about a game that’s phenomenal, and you go buy the game after hearing what he said, means that you just gave into this type of peer pressure.
