This is why I believe that it’s not the schools fault. Additionally, the article conveys “‘if a school employee witnesses a behavior that is problematic and makes a conscious decision not to address it, it becomes schools problem’.” (Diblasio).This may be true; however it is only resolved for that incident but later on, the bully can decide to be more careful and bully the student more outside of school because an adult intervened. Now I am not saying not to intervene, just that it wouldn’t make the bullying stop completely. Studies have shown that most of the times, the bully is the one that needs more help because maybe he is bullying because he was or is being bullied too. It is also hard to detect but in most cases, this is true.
Yell explains the current laws and regulations on disciplining students in special education. Throughout the chapter Yell breaks down the different aspects of discipline in schools in regards to special education. Yell starts out explaining the procedural due process used to create fair polices. Yell also talks about how schools are given the power to act as parent for the child while they are at school. This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline.
Better alteration, solutions Since the stabilization of school administration of NISB, members of the school are considering potential enforcement of school uniforms. NISB is in the process of adopting curriculums and teaching methods of neighboring international schools and therefore reconsidering the enforcement of school uniforms. However, according to Key (2007), school uniforms do not provide significant improvements in both academic achievements and behaviors of the students but act as burden for numerous parents and violate certain rights of students. Hence, school uniforms should not be enforced in NISB for further improvements and benefits of the students. When it comes to legal issues, dress code and school uniform policies violate students’ rights and freedoms of self-expression.
Our American education system is only postponing these students from entering the real world. These changes would force young adults to work with people of all ages, and no longer be constrained to the typical high school environment (Source 3). American high schools need to step up their game as they are merely falling behind. By abandoning the large emphasis on testing the students will learn the information for good and not just for the test. Incorporating more relevant information into the curriculum, will allow students to become more interested.
Patrick McAuley Satire Essay 1/22/13 Bully for the Best According to an article written by MSNBC contributor Linda Carrol, everyday across our country one out of every six school kids is affected by the terrible use of bullying. Bullying is the largest problem concerning the safety and well-being of children at school. Students complain that bullying problems have driven them to lose focus in their learning, causing grades to drop and self-confidence to deteriorate over time. Bullies seem to target the weaker students, both physically and mentally. All schools say “no” to bullying, but why not say “yes”.
Throughout history we have seen that racism is a problem in the United States. From people being segregated to being discriminated because of their race, racism has affected many people. Because racism was a much bigger problem in the past, people tend to think that it doesn’t exist anymore. I think that racism is still a problem in the United States because it negatively impacts schools, neighborhoods, and society. There is usually bullying in schools, but something that not everyone knows is that there is also racism going on in schools everyday.
School uniforms are to be used to limit skin exposure and anything gang related to prevent anything that might harm students or symbolize anything unsafe. In some cases, students rebel and try to make the uniform look according to the way they want to be portrayed as but the reality in that is that the policy isn’t going to let them do this. Students need to oblige to the uniforms given to them and not complain because it can get much worse than just putting on a simple shirt that you have to wear every day. Take for instance IDEA School; their uniform policy is VERY strict and they only allow you to wear what they want you to wear not what you think belongs to the uniform. In this school, the students are only allowed to wear the school t-shirt, cakey pants, closed toed shoes, and a belt that won’t let your pants sag down to your knees or farther.
Youth Violence in Schools American InterContinental University Abstract During this paper, I will discuss youth violence in schools, and how the media has portrayed it. I will focus on the urban schools since it has the bulk of stigmatism resulting from public opponents with who placed blame on the parents opposed to the type of community these children are forced to be a part of. In addition, there is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which is the cause of many of these youths acting out. lastly, acknowledging the social groups and parents who are trying to aid with being positive in fighting those stigmas and obstacles by educating them and giving them different types of avenues to spend their time. Violence in Schools I chose Youth Violence in Schools as the topic for my post.
Research Proposal 1) The issue I am addressing is why schools with children from kindergarten through 8th grade and some high schools need to enforce a mandatory school uniform policy to lessen the theft and violence and bullying in schools. My proposal is important and it matters because innocent students are getting, bullied, hurt, and killed because of what they are wearing and if we enforce my claim then the number of these can possibly go down. This matters to the parents, school students, school faculty, school administrators, and our future generation, because it affects all of us in several different ways. 2) The competing side of my argument is not to enforce a mandatory school uniform policy. They believe that enforcing children and youth to wear uniform takes away from their freedom of expressing themselves and their values.
There are even some people that view it as a “normal” situation in which, in their opinion, everyone has to deal with at some point in time. The matter of fact is that no child should ever have to deal with bullying. It’s hard to understand why another child who is supposed to equally innocent as the other child he bullies, does what he or she does, especially at this day and age where we live in. Bulling not only ruins lives, but it ends them as well. Everyone at some point in time gets teased, teases, or sees someone get teased, and possibly thinks that it is no big deal, it’s just banter, but when banter and teasing crosses that fine line between bullying, there’s a big problem.
