Censorship of School Libraries Every minor has the right to read about reality. In today’s world, library censorship has caused a lot of arguments. One of the most debatable forms of censorship today is the banning of books in school libraries. Banning books that educate students is wrong and selfish. Books with artistic and cultural value are still challenged every day by those who want to control what others read.
It is the latter however, that end up with the most capital in the long run. The advantage of free trade from a liberal perspective is the ability of the minority controlling the goods to ascertain more wealth than the majority manufacturing the goods. What Smith’s perspective does not take into account is why nations with more low-level workers are less prosperous than nations with more advanced means of production. Nations that have advanced technologically are better off because their means of production allow for more production from less workers, but cost more and are less appealing to those in control. This element relates directly to the disadvantage of a liberal perspective.
Most importantly, non-violence is not evil or a sin, so unlike violence, it is a better action as a person Many historically important people have succeeded in using non-violence. Ghandi used a specifically non-violent campaign to oust the Brits from India. Martin Luther King used a non-violent effort to bring change to the US in terms of civil rights .The Overthrow of Communism in Europe was largely a people-powered non-violent effort towards the government. As you can see, many people have used non-violence in the past, and it will still be a strategy used by peacemakers around the world. However, non-violence is not always effective on some people, such as Hitler.
Constitution vs. School Policy With the protection of the First Amendment, all U.S. citizens have the freedom of speech, which conveys that students and teachers alike can all speak their minds anywhere, including school grounds. However, this right is still limited in an academic setting in order to maintain a safe learning environment. Schools also have the task of applying their rules to fit the Constitution. These two policies can clash, making it difficult to draw the boundaries of how far these two policies can stretch. Public schools establish policies interfering with students’ right to speak freely, deceiving minors to believe they don’t have the same liberties as any other American under the Constitution.
THE VALUE OF THE GODFATHER In the article “What is the value of The Godfather?” David Clemens states that reading great literature may inspire students to behave as well as what they read. However, some books may have less value than the others may because it would lead the reader to a bad way in life. In addition, some books as Unabomber’s Manifesto, The Anarchist’s Cookbook, and American Psycho would not give any value to the reader, but they glamorize violence, drug use, or other illegal or immoral activity. For this reason, David Clemens agrees that The Godfather should not be made available in our public high school. I agree with David Clemens about banning The Godfather in our public high schools because the violent and criminal scene of the book as well as bringing the wrong impression to high school students that we embrace the intolerance worldviews in the Godfather First, The Godfather novel might present readers a great insight of the real world, yet this image is too violent to be taught for high school students.
Suspension and expulsion is not an effective tool and solution in our schools because it can lead to dropout rates and other violent crimes in the future. If a student commits a crime and the crime is not considered to be threatening, it is most likely that the principal or teacher may suspend that student. To the student suspension is a good thing for them since they have to just stay at home and do nothing. When students get expelled or suspended so many times, it seems normal to them, so they would not feel the consequences of the discipline and the purpose of it. Dropout rates and other violent crimes may contribute from continuous suspension and expulsion.
Here are some examples of why some believe we should not uphold the right to freedom of speech within our public school system: Many students believe that school uniforms should not be introduced, because of the limitation of their freedom. I believe that introducing a uniform to the school would decrease the diversity between each student, and it will be the solution for many problems. Taking this issue in to consideration, I wish to explain the benefits/ advantages of wearing a uniform to school. I personally think that a dress code enforces discipline in learning by changing a person’s attitude toward success. Students generally act the way they are dressed.
I remember when I was in middle school; I didn’t wear the fanciest clothes or was with the current fashion trend and was often left out when my friends were talking about clothes. I felt like I did not belong, but I did not want to buy expensive clothing just to feel included by my friends. Even though students' individuality is important to express one's self, uniforms should be adopted in some public schools because they lower disciplinary referrals and help students focus on learning. Many students of public schools believe that school uniforms should not be introduced, because it is restraining people's freedom of expression and does not create diversity. One example of how uniforms restrict learners is that "without the outlet of expression in their clothes, students may turn to inappropriate hair styles, jewelry, or makeup".
Naim Muhammad-Wyatt English 10 Mr. Murphy 6 May 2011 School Prayer School prayer is has been a controversial issue since the beginning of the United States. It should not be required because the diversity of religions in this country is vast, and continues to grow. The constitution also says there should be no school prayer as well. Although there is freedom of expression, there are places where students to go for religious expression. Prayer in public school should not be required because of this country’s diverse culture, it is unconstitutional, and there are other places for prayer.
