The philosophy of the primary school where I work is that every child's unique needs and abilities should and must be honored. Children's different learning needs and styles are incorporated into the curriculum. On an informal level, teachers are encouraged to make use of lesson plans that utilize different types of media and methods of evaluation. Lesson plans often make use of visual and kinesthetic aspects of the learning experience as well as more traditional methods that emphasize mathematical, spatial, and verbal intelligences.
Diversity of citizenship is one of the factors that will allow a federal district court to exercise its authority to hear a lawsuit. This authority is called diversity jurisdiction. It means that a case involving questions that must be answered according to state laws may be heard in federal court if the parties on the two sides of the case are from different states. No matter how many parties are involved in a lawsuit, there must be complete diversity in order for the federal court to exercise this type of authority. If a single plaintiff is a citizen of the same state as any defendant, there is no diversity and the case must be pursued in a state court (Diversity, n.d.).
Are State Senate district 12, and State Assembly districts 24 and 25 racial gerrymanders prohibited by the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause with race as a predominant factor in redistricting?
you guys out. Romi also said that Mariah took off her jacket that she had on and the group of kids started calling her a stripper and kept telling her to strip. Romi said his group that he was with everyone kept telling the four black males to knock it off and that they were being inappropriate.

Romi said that several people started helping Christian and people were pulling the other kids off Christian. I asked him if

The Office for Equity and Diversity (OED) is eager to launch our first-ever Student Emergency Fund. OED primarily serves minority, first generation, and low-income students. Some of these students face many obstacles while pursuing higher education. These obstacles include lack of resources, obligations to family, unstable living conditions, loss of scholarship, unaffordable tuition, etc. Facing these types of adversities leaves our students vulnerable to unexpected emergencies endangering their college career. This Student Emergency Fund serves to support our students in their time of need and allows them time to recover from their financial
This case involves Kimberlie Webb and the City of Philadelphia (mainly the police department). The case was heard by the United States court of appeals, third circuit in 2009.
Literature Review: In this quantitative study, Watson, Langrehr, Zelaya and Flores (2016) aimed to investigate the relationship between multiple discriminatory experiences and insidious trauma among a sample of Women of Color (WOC). The topic is significant for the readership of the journal since it has expanded the definition of trauma and brought up a critical perspective of DSM-5 PTSD diagnosis. Researchers cogently provided literature to demonstrate the link between insidious trauma and oppressive experiences such as racism and sexism. They also included preliminary research purporting that self-esteem can be a mediator in the oppression and insidious trauma relationship. They also hypnotized and offered a research review on ethnic identity strength as a moderator in the negative relationship between multiple forms of discrimination and self-esteem, in turn, lessening to trauma symptoms. Based on these hypotheses, they clearly indicated their research questions. The literature review was composed of current research and comprehensive enough to capture the depthless of the research questions.
Finally, the police demonstrated racial bias during this case, however, this did not go without notice as Ellis was eventually freed and received a new trial. The area that Mulligan was killed in may not have been the safest, and accusing an African American teenager of killing a police officer in a dangerous neighborhood is almost expected. Ellis fits the bill for Acerra’s, Brazil’s, Robinson’s, and Mulligan’s criteria of a stereotypical, street thug that hated the police and liked to cause trouble. However, on June 3, 2015, Ellis was freed from prison and released on $50,000 bail, with the remaining murder charge still in effect (Associated Press, 2015, para. 2). In addition, on September 9, 2016, Ellis was granted approval for a fourth
Discrimination is nothing new to our society or is it something that should be taken lightly and for many decades our Nation has endured many conflicts that have tested the will of Americans over the decades and it is evident that as we have become more diverse so too has our workforce. Although, we are in the twenty first century the goal is to understand why prejudice and discrimination is still so prevalent and how we can do better while trying to bring together our different backgrounds, skills, and experiences still has proven to be an issue that minorities are constantly fighting as they struggle to find there place in society. Through an array of well-educated researchers showing how diversity is nothing new to our society, but if we are to continue to grow and move forward we must be able to understand that with diversification we can foster a strong and inclusive economy that is built to last and nurture a nation that will continue to lead the world as standard setter.
There are many legislations relating to diversity, equality and discrimination, on October 2010, the Equality Act 2010 came into effect. This Act replaced previous legislations (such as the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995). This act ensures that people are protected from discrimination in the work place and in wider society.
Organisations have sought out to have a more diverse workforce, as it is claimed to increase organisational effectiveness. A team with individuals from different social group, personalities, values and beliefs, and etcetera, when managed well, can be an asset to the organisation. More often than not, there will be some sort of discrimination in the workplace, especially with a very diverse workforce. Therefore, with proper training and benefits to ensure the development of these employees, and legislation and policy to ensure equality and reduce discrimination within the workforce, it can drive competitive advantage and organisational profit. When looking at diversity in the workforce, the business case and the moral case justification are often necessary. The following paragraphs will talk more about the business case and moral case, and the linkages between them, as well as the theories and conceptual frameworks for the business and moral cases justification for diversity management in organisations.
Discrimination comes in many forms. Discrimination and diversity are closely linked considering the reasons behind discrimination are what makes up the definition of diversity. Not only is discrimination made against gender, race, and religion, but it is also made of age, disabilities, appearance and in a lot of cases, women who are pregnant too. This is very much a reality for many employers. There are laws protecting acts of discrimination. This topic is so sensitive, that many employers implement diversity and discrimination into their mission statements. Many companies make it their practice to host training sessions to prevent discrimination from happening, then there are many companies who can’t afford such training for their
