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.
Some also argue that students who aren't doing anything wrong have nothing to fear. This ignores the fact that what they fear is not getting caught, but the loss of dignity and trust that the drug test represents. While they think they may be helping by trying to keep students from using drugs they actually may be hurting there self esteem. Our legal system is based on the principle innocent until proven guilty, but doesn't random mean that there is no reason to suspect anything? I think it's wrong because random searches will just lead to profiling which isn’t right.
One of the most important reasons to why library censorship is unacceptable is that it limits our information resources. In other words, we will not have the right to receive and source our assignments with quotes and information from banned books, nor will we have the right to read certain books from some of our favorite authors. There are many books that are banned from people or more likely students under the age of 17 (Koss 29). One of these books is
For example: if an adults wanted to end their life they would not get away with it, as the right to live law would not allow the adult to get away with this. This law also prosecute murderers for taking an adult’s right to live away. The right to education helps by giving every human a given right to have an education, for example: if an adult was not allowing their child to attend a school and not have education when the child wanted to and needed to, the child or another adult would be able to report them as they are not following the rights. The person who is not allowing the child go to school will be prosecuted. The freedom of thought, conscience and religion helps to safeguard adults by allowing them to have their
But the question is whether parents should shave the right to check their teens social media accounts. Teenagers want their privacy, especially from their parents. They want to have conversations and inside jokes that belong only to them and their friends. Teenagers do not want to feel like they are sharing everything in their lives with their parents. This is why I believe parents should not be able to check their teen’s social media accounts.
No books should ever be banned because for each book that is banned, there possibly could be one life lesson that will not be learned by the next generation. Censorship of books in schools and libraries is wrong for it limits what students can potentially learn. Books such as To Kill a Mocking Bird, Of Mice and Men, and others teach valuable life lessons, which is why they are considered classics. Books such as these are being banned for they have questionable material. In the same book introduction as the opening quote, Judy Blume wrote, “Those who were most active in trying to ban books cam from the ‘religious right’ but the impulse to censor spread like a contagious disease.
Parents who do spank their children are not abusing them. It is simply a form of discipline. By making it illegal to spank their own children, you take away a parent’s rights. Many parents are speaking up about how they feel towards this subject. A concerned mother said "I
Drug testing in school is actually illegal when read on the constitution. No person will be illegally searched and violated by anyone in a search. The school Administration profiles individuals and already ahead of time pick out who they are going to drug test. It is against personal privacy and why should any student be violated without the parent’s consent as well. The fact that the school think they have the right to violate the child's private life is funny.
Nowadays we live in a society where almost every type of information is in our reach. Not every information is appropriate for children, that’s why I slightly believe that censorship can be justified. Censorship serves as a warning to inform parents of unsuitable content for children. On the other hand censorship restricts the freedom of expression. In this essay I wish to argue my two contradicting views.
Lastly, school uniforms do not provide an academic advantage, which makes them have no upside to casual clothing schools. School administrators should not make school uniforms mandatory for students because of the many downsides they have, for the few unproven benefits they are theorized to have. Firstly, school uniforms restrict students’ freedom of choosing their own clothes and do not allow for students to express themselves freely. Clothing is a major way of expressing one’s culture, sexual orientation, feelings, and emotions and by forcing students to wear and dress a certain way, this is not possible. In fact, the First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees that all people should have the right to express themselves freely.
