In the “Bethel School District v. Fraser” case, Fraser believed that the school violated his first amendment “freedom of speech” rights. Fraser gave a speech with some inappropriate content in it and the school gave him a three day suspension because two teachers warned him before he gave the speech. Fraser took it to court and the justices said they would shorten the suspension and let him have his right to speak at graduation because the school was taking away his freedom of speech.
On June 8, 2010, eleven year old, Jorge Tarin, told a school counselor he was going to kill himself after school. Because he could not bear being hit by his father anymore. Jorge’s school sent him home due to the lack of power they possessed to keep him and the lack of knowledge on his family history. The same day a social worker and a police officer visited the Tarin family, the home was declared safe to keep a child in, without any real knowledge of the family. They left the home without knowing Jorge had previously spent fifteen months in foster care due to past abuse from his father, who no longer maintained rights to see or live in the same house as his child.

In an attempt to hide the information from his parents, Knight crumpled the notification and disposed of it away. On the first day of his suspension, Ray Knight was killed while visiting a friends home.
Delaware’s first attempt at sports gambling was a colossal failure. The state launched the same kind of parlay betting, or sports lottery, just as Oregon did. Although, Delaware tried it thirteen years earlier in 1976. The NFL immediately responded with a temporary restraining order against the state of Delaware for “irreparable harm.” However, their claim was quickly denied by the courts, but the lawsuit became a moot point as Delaware’s sports lottery failed abruptly due to incompetence. This was a poorly managed government-run operation and the state shut down the sports lottery after only three weeks because it was $371,000 in debt.
“By definition, zero tolerance refers to strict, uncompromising, automatic punishment to eliminate undesirable behavior” (50). Zero-tolerance in schools are taking away educational opportunities from students, which goes against the U.S. special education law of zero suspension. As adapted by the justice system punishments, zero-tolerance punishments are predetermined by the act which does not allow a student’s individual needs to be considered. Zero-tolerance in schools have been permitted because of the rise in crime and alarming attention from school shootings, which created the Gun Free Schools Act in 1994. “Before long, schools escalated the range of reasons for suspending and expelling students to include violation policies about alcohol, tobacco, drugs, fighting, insubordination, dress code, and ‘disruptive behavior’” (50).
After a major uproar the students cause, the military questionably moves out, and the teenagers are left without any food for an extremely long while. After David may or may not "escape" from the school, and from his very-near death from the disease as his immunity diminished, we fast-forward a month or two, and are given a story primarily centered around Will and Lucy. It 's been forever since there was a supply drop in the Quad, and the population inside is majorly thinned. The established facility that the military had once controlled over to prevent students with the infection from leaving, but letting those free of it go through, was left suddenly abandoned, but the doors still being locked made it impossible to know from the outside. Suddenly,

It was later revealed that Cho had a long history of depression and mental illness… The college administrators received a great amount of criticism for not taking certain actions that would have reduced the number of casualties” (Cooper 2). This again demonstrates how critical it is to train teachers and personnel on the importance of knowing how to react in these types of situations.

If the society is good the system will aim to promote good moral values; if the society is bad the system will promote unethical practices.
