As an advocate, he gave many lectures regarding the variety of drugs and how drugs would impact high school students’ lives and their future. His presentation approach was clearly informative and intensity. The relating subject in the classroom emphasized on substance abuses that would dispute the choices with judgment comes from an student. McCarthy mentioned how drugs would be dangerous, how they made, and why they would lead many high school students into risky paths. On the other hand, the non-relating subject was drug-policies created in public schools and how they applied and discipline high school students with the prevention methods.

Most students, parents, and educators don’t think violence will happen or is happening at their school, but violence is happening in almost every school. School violence doesn’t look at socioeconomic status, or race, or anything. School Violence is an equal opportunity afflicter. Violence not only poses a threat to individual students, but it also “disrupts the learning process and has a negative effect on students, the school itself, and the broader community” (CDC 2013). One of the most frightening things, as an educator and even as fellow peers, is watching the violence take place.
Adults, as well as students themselves, can make a difference by banning together to make a change. In order to confront bullying, the problem has to be made known. Because of the wide-spread issue, teachers and school officials have been trained how to handle bullies and difuse intense situations. In the event the problem escalates beyond control, there are laws that have been put in place for the protection of students. Although there has been much effort put forth to implament new anti-bullying laws, they lack effectiveness, due to minimal sanctions or incentives, thus leaving implamentation and enforcement in question.
