This isn’t saying that all high school students use steroids, however, steroids are present. Using steroids are illegal and random tests should be mandatory in high schools to find those athletes that use steroids. Steroids can be used for many reasons, but the main reason behind steroid use among high school athletes is to enhance their performance. Steroids contain testosterone, which encourage cell growth within the body. Although it appears that steroids are helping the body, they are actually killing it.
Its really not worth kids to start at a young age. Peer pressure is the greatest cause of kids trying drugs. If by testing the athletes or other school leaders, we can get them to say no to drugs, it will be easier for other kids to say no. Random drug testing can also have a positive side to it and that is for parents to know if there child is doing drugs. The reason that I feel that random drug testing in schools is important is because there are drugs everywhere and can easily be found.
Random drug tests should not be allowed in schools because they are a violation of our privacy, it is against the fourth amendment, they do not deter use, and the drug tests are not always accurate. What if you didn’t ever do a drug and you received a positive on your drug test? You would be taken out of any extracurricular activities that you were in because they have a no drug policy. Drug test are not 100% positive which means there are always going to be something that goes wrong. Some say that drug testing is accurate enough to be used in schools, even though some may receive false positives; the benefits still outweigh the costs.
Did you know that teens are more vulnerable than anyone to drug abuse? With teenagers their brains and bodies are still developing. When teenagers get addicted to drugs it can have long term effects that affect their judgments and the decisions they are going to make. Drugs can result in poor performance and learning in school, and sports activities. Ways to prevent drug problems from becoming an issue in schools is to hold random drug testing for students that want to participate in sports or school activities.
Many parents and teachers feel that failing can be detrimental to a child’s psychological development. The thought behind this theory is that if a child fails at school, it will lead to discontentment and negative feelings in the child as they grow. Some feel this may be one of the reasons behind the number of criminals in our justice system. Failure can create frustration and anxiety leading to a feeling of desperation to succeed. This could mean to an individual that success must be achieved by any means possible even using the wrong methods to do so.
Hazing among students-athletes can range from competition for the same positions, upper class students teasing freshman, and mostly commonly, playing pranks to fit in. Some athletes may feel the need to haze younger teammates to secure a spot on the team. Hazing imposes others to perform humiliating tasks upon one another in order to accepted to a particular program or activity. While hazing may seem so small to others, the negative consequences to the victims are so large (Schleifer). Hazing can drain an individual both physically and mentally and potentially lead to death.

Statement of Credibility/Relevance: According to Dr. Ronald Ricker and Dr. Venus Nicolino, “Today, the administration of psychoactive drugs to child 6-17 is all too common, and growing at an alarming rate. Theses drugs often cause the opposite of the intended effect, often condemning children to a life of misery and ill health.” Thesis: Psychoactive drugs are over prescribed to children and in many cases having a very negative effect. Preview: I’m going to explain what a psychoactive drug is, various types and uses of psychoactive drugs, all the negative effects associated with these drugs on children, and some solutions for these negative effects. Transition: Now before we look at the problems of these drugs, let’s first look at what a psychoactive drug actually is. Body: I.
In a way, I think that a school not being trauma-informed almost creates an unsafe environment for the student. If the staff member is unable to recognize what may be considered as a flashback trauma trigger, it leaves that individual vulnerable. I say this because that individual may not be able to explain why they are having such an intense reaction to the situation. They might be unaware of the link between the original trauma event and the current trauma trigger and feel as if they are not in control of themselves. Seeing how dangerous trauma triggers can be, when a student is acting out, school staff should consider if the underlying cause may be past trauma.
It is because this may not only lead to a damaged relationship between teachers and students, but also can lead to negative associations. Consequently, positive punishment cannot be used frequently. Apart from the above method, there is another way to chastise the students which is negative punishment. Negative punishment is the removal of a favorable stimulus after an unwelcome performance in order to decreases that response, which means if students did something wrong and their favorable things such as toys or smart phones will be taken away as a punishment. Jason, one of my students, as an example, he loves playing PSP and NDS very much, so before
