Another reason why it is possible that the caseworkers were not fully aware is because they asked the parents to explain the situation. They had no other way to verify what was going on in the home because the children did not have medical examinations, were home schooled, neighbors rarely ever saw the children outside of the home and the family regularly attended a local church. I most definitely believe that all nine members of the Division of Youth and Family Services should have been fired and charges should have been brought against them. They neglected to do their job properly and make sure that the boys were being properly taken care of, instead one of the social workers prayed with the family for
This is definitely unethical. When more than a minor medical issue arises, the ethical thing for the physician assistant to do is take the patient to a practical setting and take the normal course of actions (2013). Joe is breaking this by taking kits out of the practice area into his own home without consent of the physician or the facility as a whole. The guidelines go over the importance of not providing informal care, which is exactly what Joe is doing in this situation. He is not only informally treating and collecting specimen from his daughter, but he is also not documenting any of the treatments that he is doing.
It's why this statement from the Freeh Report is so haunting: "Although concern to treat the child abuser humanely was expressly stated, no such sentiments were ever expressed by them for Sandusky's victims." It's why a former dean of student affairs at Penn State -- who was responsible for administering the school's code of student conduct -- ran afoul of coach Joe Paterno and left the university, discouraged. When athletes
He soon “fell into line” after the principal of the school called a meeting with him and the parents of the students he was failing. Even though Jesness presented very good reasons as to why they were failing, it did not matter. After being let go from his teaching job he realized there was no way around the floating standard, so he began to dumb down the curriculum and in return this put all of the students at the same level even if some could excel if they were pushed harder. Jesness brings into view the idea of a fixed standard, and asserts that state testing such as the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills does not grant students the ability to learn as much as they could. Jesness goes on to say that if students were to take Advanced Placement tests then this “would free teachers from the pressure to adjust the content of their courses and would assure students and their parents that the standard for each course is fixed, not floating”.
The controversial issue over smacking children has divided many parents among today’s society. Julia Thornton argues in her opinion piece, ‘A lack of smack is behind the attacks,’ and justifies in an assertive tone that smacking is acceptable in order to teach children discipline. In an informal style the article is targeted at all mothers and fathers. Appealing to the same audience, Susie O’Brien’s article ‘Smacking kids is not the solution as it does not help,’ contends against Thornton’s argument on the issue. Using an informal structure and generally rational tone the writer is opposed to smacking children stating that ‘it does not help’.
He then continues on to say that we shouldn’t blame the teachers or the students; in this case, we should blame ourselves. He says we are all to blame because the obligation to amuse and instruct ourselves is entirely our own choice and that if we are bored it is nobody’s fault but our own. Gatto is correct in his assertion that the current school system is harmful to students in that it robs them of the ability to be free thinkers. John Taylor Gatto learned as a child something really important in life that was taught by his grandfather. He expresses that “Of course, teachers are themselves products of the same twelve-year compulsory school programs that so thoroughly bore their students, and as school personnel they are trapped inside structures… The obligation to amuse and instruct myself was entirely my own, and people who didn't know that were childish people, to be avoided if possible.”(1) Gatto learned that being bored was an action that he was only responsible for.
The title relates to this story b/c Eric was the bystander that didn't do anything when Griffin beat up David. He didn't want to get involved, but he also knew what they ( Griffin and his group) were doing was wrong and bad. I learned that even if your not the one being bulled you should always tell a teacher or a parent that someone is getting physically or mentally bulled. No form of bullying is right and shouldn't be done in the first
Video games are not the source of violence but they are consistently blamed; parents need to make sure that their own children are not exposed to media hype that would be considered as violent or damaging to their own kids. The media truly believes they are the scapegoat for anything that goes wrong with today’s society. Today’s parents are naïve and ignorant to the fact that they do not know how to regulate the things their children watch and they cannot control their own kids behavior so they immediately point the blame on someone else. They need to teach their children good morals and show them how playing with guns can change their lives forever. People who own guns need to keep them put away and out of the reach of children.
The research has been done on zero tolerance in the home but not extensively in the school. Based on the results of the research finding on zero tolerance in the home in regards to parenting the approach conflicts with the developmental needs of adolescences. This approached mirrored what was taking place in the Breakfast Club. The group leader/principal had no desire to truly hear what the teen had to say in response to his assignment. He only wanted them do as he said without feedback.
Children and young people need to know that their information will be kept safe and that they won’t be in risk of teasing or bullying by other pupils. Adults need to feel secure in the knowledge that they or their children will not be the topic of playground gossip by other parents and that their home details will be safe from others. Parents should be reassured that the school is providing correct care and support for them and their children. There may come a time when you will need to let others know your obligations with regard to confidentiality and the sharing of information you have gathered regarding a child or young adult. In most cases parental consent is necessary in order to share the information with other professional bodies, however, the school has a legal obligation to disclose information if there is any indication of the child or young adult being at risk.
