There should be no worry, though, because it’s not like the people who are searching lockers know whose locker they are searching. The only way they would find out whose locker it is, is if they find drugs or weapons in it, but then again, the student shouldn’t have had the drugs or weapons to begin with! Students fear that when their lockers are being searched, that their personal belongings may be stolen. If it is not a drug or a weapon, or anything else that may put someone’s safety at risk, don’t worry. We trust teachers to use this power responsibly and not abuse it.
This program would be a bad idea because with all the money we would be paying students with we could actually buy school supplies. Another reason why this is a bad idea is because students should not be getting paid for doing the right thing. Lastly, students could put weapons or drugs into someone’s locker and snitch on them. To begin, saving money on school is better than paying students for snitching because we could get more school supplies. Instead of kids getting video games, candy, ECT.
It’s risky though because you can endanger yourself from setting limiting beliefs. When you continuously depend on others for your wellbeing it stifles you from learning important skills. In school, rather than relying on others for ideas you could dig deep and find that you have great ideas within yourself. It gives you the confidence to
The Clark County School districts policies were not intending to squelch free speech but instead were aimed at ‘creating an educational environment free from the distractions, dangers, and disagreements that result when student clothing choices are left unrestricted,’ said Judge Michael Hawkins.” (Egelko) If there is not a distraction of what people are wearing, there is more of a chance that students would focus more on learning. School is not holding a fashion show! Students are the leaders of tomorrow and the outrageous outfits worn by students need not to distract them. According to an opposing viewpoints resource center it says, “Uniforms instill discipline, helps students focus on their studies and eliminate
Dear Editor, Imagine that you are walking into school when all of a sudden the principal announces that there will be a random locker search taking place for some of the students, and one of those students happens to be you. Not only will a staff member/administrator be able to look through everything in your locker and backpack, your iPod and cell phone will be confiscated as well due to the fact that those items are causing distractions in the classroom. Your principal argues that these random searches are to create a safer, more secure, and unassailable environment, but to some students, the searches may mean something different. This would be the equivalent for an adult walking into work and all of a sudden having someone look through all the items in your office and bags. Random searches against students are wrong because valuable time and money is consumed while conducting the searches, they can create tension between students and teachers, and it violates a student’s privacy.
In the article “Schools Wrestle with Issue of Armed Guards” it stated that, “The firearm is there to protect students from bad guys on the outside, not to use on students," Mr. Hamill said. To underscore the dangers facing schools today, he cited a campus lockdown during a pawnshop robbery near a school two years ago, and another incident in which a criminal suspect fleeing arrest entered and dashed through an elementary school” (Education Week). I agree with these quotes. Because I think the there should be armed gurads in our schools around the world. The second reason I think armed guards are good to have in school is because they supply shakedowns.
Many educators tend to bend over backwards to give students breaks that they would not receive in the streets of society or the workplace. Kids that are taught less firm discipline end up being taught that there are no consequences for inappropriate behavior as long as it occurs on school grounds (Trump). The zero tolerance policy is very beneficial because it doesn’t allow room for anyone to slip through. Although there are many good things about this policy it also has a very negative side. “Schools across the United States have employed an unforgiving system of discipline in which children and youth are punished for punishment's sake.
Generally speaking, vending machines have become an easy excuse. If the schools did not have vending machines then students would no longer have an opportunity to easily skip class and walk the hallways freely. Without vending machines teachers will be able to conduct class with fewer distractions and more faces. Also, teachers will be able to have the class’s full attention while teaching them important learning material. Most students are side tracked by the temptation of buying something out of the vending machine leading to loss of attentiveness towards the teacher.
I have actually seen students being neglected by their own classmates because of this particular reason. The students’ main attention should always point towards education and not towards fashion. They have plenty of time to do fashion outside of the school. Even though students' individuality is important to express one's self, uniforms should be adopted in the school, because it lowers disciplinary referrals and helps students focus on learning. Schools requiring uniforms will experience reduction in violence.
Thus juveniles must be presented with a valid search warrant unless they have waived that right. To avoid disturbance and disruption and to create and maintain a safe learning environment, public schools often adopt policies that forbid certain acts on the part of students. Included in many of these policies are search and seizures of school lockers. Lockers are school property; students are merely allowed to use them as they do with sports equipment, library books, school computers, etc. Lockers can be taken back without notice, for example if they are vandalized or become smelly with rotting food.
