The argument is a big decision for whether it should be raised or shouldn't it be raised because of the consequences of both sides. There are many reasons why the legal driving age shouldn’t be raised, including: more deaths/accidents would occur in the 18-year-old range, parents wouldn’t be able to have as much control of their teen driver, and parents would have to drive their kids around all the time. Making the legal driving age be 18 instead of 16 would have harsh consequences. First, if the driving age were raised
One of the main reasons Colorado refuses to pass the law is due to the cost of jail and lifetime surveillance - money of course outweighing the safety of children - enough said. Also, the reduced prison sentences are worth every cent because every year a violent sex offender or pedophile is in prison is a year protecting children from them. An understandable pitfall of Jessica’s Law is that it makes it nearly impossible to find homes for registered sex offenders due to the clause that states they cannot live within 2,000 feet of a school zone, park or where children gather. I concede that this makes it difficult and could be counterproductive since many become homeless and unable to keep under a close watch. This is a valid concern and can be dealt with state by state, the government spend astronomical amounts of tax payer dollars on nugatory programs.
Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. This whole project of Prohibition was all a big fail. Today as a whole I don’t know why we would even attempt it like some places have. It needs to be a learning experience for our government today not to do what it did back then and spend tons of money on laws that are going to fail and cause more debt. In all the Prohibition Era was a down for America even though it might not say so, but it was a true down grade instead of a booming
Employers knowingly employ hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants each year on farms, in restaurants, as domestic help, and in labor-intensive jobs. Without these workers some industries could not survive. Undocumented workers fill a need in this country and will work for wages that most Americans will not (“Employment protection policies and the undocumented worker: a balancing of competing interests,” 2005). Conclusion In conclusion, our current immigration laws are tearing families apart. Immigration reform is needed, but there is not a one size fits all solution.
Why should people know their child custody laws? First, we need our children to be protected. Second, if we do not know the laws and go through a custody battle, you have a chance to lose your children, even if it is not the best decision for the children. Going through a divorce is not easy in itself, but the children are the ones that suffer the most. There is an astonishing 14.2 percent divorce rate in Nevada (Fiegerman, 2010) one of the highest in the country.
Many illegal immigrants live amongst us right now that have been here for many years and have worked for company’s many years and have homes and cars and many luxury’s we have. They might be here illegally but they have everything we have. Why would we look at them and think that it’s not right or it’s not fair? By bettering ourselves and educating our children so that they can have a better life for themselves is the answer we should not teach that they are illegal but teach that they are part of this country also and we must accept them as normal human beings. Jobs will always be hard to get especially when so many of us apply for them we must push for a higher education that way when it comes down to picking an individual you know you are better than the rest of the others who applied.
With regards to child labor, these countries need to take into consideration that in most countries child labor is accepted to be bad. Child labor is very hazardous to these kids whom are not yet mentally and physically developed to perform the harsh duties of full time employment, these countries also deprive these kids of being able to attain an education; which will lead them to greater risk of living in poverty over the course of their life because they will not have any other skills that they would be qualified to obtain other jobs. Most countries that are involved in international trades have put laws in place to try to prevent these child labor practices. Even the United Nation (UN) has several international laws and treaties that are set in place to prevent such practices as well. Unfortunately there are still several countries that have child labor alive and well to this day.
What's even worse is that the habit of long-term jail sentences in the US has completely wiped out any chance of ever getting a job again for most of these people. "If they are not educated, they don't have a choice anymore. If you can't read at a ninth grade level, you can't get out of poverty” (Payne). When the children where entering the toy store, the first thing that pops out of Sugars mouth is, “Can we steal?”(Bambara). The children would not have to steal objects if their parents had better jobs and better educated.
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”.
Despite the fact that some people believe child soldiers are replicas or replicate child criminals, child soldiers should be given amnesty because they aren't morally responsible for their actions, they are forced into fighting, and the goal should be to rehabilitate the child soldiers and not to punish. First of all, child soldiers should not be held accountable for their actions during wartime. While it is well known that children make imperfect decisions all the time, there is a scientific reasoning to this phenomena. Studies show that “the section of the brain known as the frontal lobes controls decision making and only fully develops well into your 20's. Children simply lack the ability to think of the long-term consequences of their actions” (Invisible Children).
