Snowboarding is one of the most enjoyed international pastimes. It presents you with this feeling of freedom and raw power as the cold air hits your face while you carve down the almost vertical mountain face dropping over steep clips and carving trough trees. These are just a few reasons

“Let It Snow” Evaluation David Sedaris’ essay, “Let It Snow” is a reflection of Sedaris’ past. A single day from his childhood in North Carolina where Sedaris and his siblings were home due to school being closed for few days because of bad weather. The story reflects solely on the relationship that Sedaris’ mother had with him and his sisters, and how it was affected by her drinking problem. Although the story revolved around the children the mother was the main character.

A public school in New York during the start of each school day started with the Pledge of Allegiance and followed by a nondenominational prayer. The New York state law also allowed students to skip the prayer if found offensive. A parent of a student attending this school sued deeming the law violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Supreme Courts majority rule (8-1) claimed YES the public school sponsored prayer violates Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, even with allowing students to skip the prayer, it was still considered unconstitutional. This case is important because Chief Justice, Earl Warren states that school sanctioned prayers, including any type of public promotion of religion, violates the Establishment
As the First Amendment protects the freedom of speech to all Americans, there needs to be some sort of limit on when students go overboard. There are many different types of speech in which it can cause disruptions in the classroom when teachers and students state their own opinions that don’t always go with what the others agree with. Things such as the place of where they speak these things are affective to whether their claims are legal or illegal on any school campus. When students cause a disruption, even across the street from a school supervised event while promoting illegal drug use like Joseph Frederick did, it needs to be stopped as soon as possible whether it goes against the freedom of a student's speech or not.
Students don't have the same First Amendment rights they have in the public compared to school. Four major cases were brought to the Supreme Court concerning students' First Amendment, Tinker , Fraser, Hazelwood, and Morse. The First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Only one ruled in favor of the student that being the first one, Tinker which set the stage for the rest. Students' First Amendment rights have changed since Tinker expanded upon students' right to being constricted because
Students have every right to express themselves in school and are protected by the Constitution. That right is regulated by the disruption on campus that their expression may cause. The students First Amendment rights will not be violated if the school doesn’t allow the shirts. The school
Today we learned about the legal rights of student bloggers. Public School Students have the First Amendment rights, and according to the Supreme Court, public school students don't "shed their constitutional right to freedom of speech or expression at the school gate." People who go to private school also have the First Amendment rights, but those rights only protect them from the government censorship, not private censorship. Which means your freedom of speech is only protected from the government and it is not protected from the private school you attend. Remember a public school can censor or punish students' on-campus speech. Although the Tinker decision recognized that students have free speech rights on campus, the court also held that
It was a normal winter morning. I woke up freezing my butt off. The night before we heard that it was possible for us to get a snow day but before I went to bed I saw it wasn't even snowing so I figured we wouldn't have one. I looked
“A search is an examination of a person, place, or vehicle for contraband or evidence of a crime” (Harr, Hess, Orthmann, & Kingsburry, 2015, p. 198). Searches are essentially invasions of someone’s privacy and, therefore, are stringently regulated by the Fourth Amendment. “A seizure is a taking by law enforcement or other government agent of contraband, evidence of a crime, or even a person into custody” (Harr et al., 2015, p. 199). The Fourth Amendment also closely regulates seizures. The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and demands that any search or arrest warrant be founded on probable cause.
Year-round Schools America is 17th in education, but year-round schools would fixed that. Year-round schools are schools with around 3 week breaks, but a shorter summer with five weeks. Year-round schools also have it that students have differ break times, it also have 175-180 days like a normal school have.
In Tinker v. Des Moines (1969), the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment applied to public schools and that administrators had to provide constitutionally valid reasons for any specific regulation of speech in the classroom. However, in the 1986 case Bethel v. Fraser, it was ruled that educators were not violating students’ First Amendment right by censoring the content of their speech or writing. So are we, as students, protected by the First Amendment or not? Should we be able to write about a controversial topic as freely as any adult?
I overheard an eighth-grade boy say that recess at sixth grade are like deer entering the woods on opening rifle day. They run out so fast. Sixth-grade students race out to get to recess. Some kids play four square while others play different things or just wander around.Two graders were playing around and acting like they were throwing fireballs at each other one anonymous seventh grader said. Another eighth grader said that they looked like the people playing Dragon Ball Z. One of the sixth graders said that recess is always fun for his friends and himself. Another sixth grader said that she really does not care about recess because all she does is stand around. She also said, why go outside and freeze when you can talk inside and be nice
