As Royster, a man who was interviewed for an CDC article about sex education, stated from youth individuals, “There is no one in school teaching me how to protect myself. I didn 't learn about this in school.” (“CDC Reports Rise In Teen Pregnancy, STD Rates”). Parents have the right in this world to not accept the fact of teachers being the person to educate their teenagers sex education in schools. Teens have huge opportunities in life they can succeed in, for an example teen pregnancy can lower the chance of a teen finishing high school or going to the college she dreamed of. Not all parents will end up educating their teenagers about sex education, mainly because some parents do not want to teach their teenagers because it will make them want to experiment while some parents are also uncomfortable talking to their teenagers about sex education, parents told the authors of The Parents Role article (“The Parent 's Role").
They try, to the best of their abilities, to represent us with their decisions, but no matter what there will always be people who are not satisfied. In some instances the school board must make a decision which the majority of people will not agree with, but nonetheless will benefit our children. Our representatives have done the research and the public has not, which is why the public should not make judgement calls on the importance and relevance of certain materials and subjects within our school systems. An example of what happens when the public is allowed to decide can be found in the case of evolution vs. creationism. Some states have, in the past, outlawed the teaching of evolution because the public didn’t agree with it, even though almost all scientists had accepted it.
Many teenagers don’t want to get caught bullyi... ... middle of paper ... ...ccountable for cyber-bullying. Schools should not be legally bound to react to the act of students bullying their peers. They should not be bound by law to take care of cyber-bullying because a law or regulation would take schools to the brink of breaking the law, students would more or less not tell administration that they are being bullied, and schools cannot control what students do online or at home. Others would say that schools helping students with their bullies would empower students to stand up to their peers, however, the students would be taken care of, and not be taking care of themselves. There are many arguments about whether or not schools should take responsibility over cyber-bullying.
Some people are opposed to banning of religion in schools. Some feel that banning religion infringes upon the school faculty’s first amendment rights. Others feel that is morally wrong to take out religion. Most of these people don’t see the negative roles religion can play in the classroom. There are many harmful effects of allowing or not allowing prayer in public schools.
Religion in schools is prohibited. Students are restricted from prayer because it is deemed unconstitutional to share individual beliefs in schools. The right for students to have religious exercise and expression are intrinsically important for them to form bonds with one another (Religion in Public Schools 1). Taking away religion is taking away unity and common beliefs between students. Imagine taking religion away is like taking pep rallies away.
It would definitely darken the relationship between parents and children. I personally think that it could make the situation worse if say a child was talking to someone they like but the parents were extremely against dating. If the child finds out that their parent was spying on them, this could actually make the situation a lot worse. I think that if parents have a child who is typically good and one does things that are considered “rebellious” very rarely, (which is typical for a teenager) the parent does not have to spy on the child. In some cases where the mistakes are repetitive it might be necessary for a parent to spy on their kids.
They all claim that tests may be an unfair way to rank children in the world today due to: teachers not teaching children the right material in preparation for the test, family upbringing, and even worrying the children would affect the test results. As Ayers indicates, one single test could not determine where a child stands in the business world, due to the fact that the test analyzes specific topics on school and nothing about their personality or more personal traits.
School prayer ‘infringes the Constitutional rights of others” (Yahoo.com). Every student has a right to refuse to participate in prayer, as well as participate in prayer Brock 2 also. But when it is forced on them, they goes against the “Freedom of Religion” clause of the constitution. It would be a violation of the establishment clause if the government was behind one religion (Highlights of Pending Senate-School Prayer Proposal... ... middle of paper ... ...for school is education, and praying to one’s self is just as effective. If everyone would open their eyes to these facts, there wouldn’t be much of a debate anymore.
The U.S Supreme Court also made it clear that schools cannot just ban a student’s expression because they do not like, or see it as a possible threat. The school must have evidence to support their theories of the students expression would harm others around them or cause conflict among the students (Kelly). Some schools do this all the time, because they do not like what a shirt says; they will say it is against the rules and ban it. This clearly says schools are not allowed to do this. Which is why school districts will lose most of their cases against students about dress codes.
In schools, students should not be forced to wear uniforms because they take away their freedom of expression, their individuality and they absolutely do not help the families save money. First of all, school uniforms do not allow students to express themselves. The first amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that all individuals have the right to express themselves freely. I have talked to many teenagers and they say “it’s simply not fair.” Teenagers are at an age where they are trying to find their identity. According
