educational law and ethics

That topic is more fully explained on page 3 of the syllabus.This topic includes several issues, like freedom of speech, prayer in school, FERPA, and search and seizure.  You talked last night about police in schools, the security guards and some of the dangers that face school. You talked about protection of students.That was a good discussion.  Your focus can be on dangers facing schools and what to do about them, if you want. That is related to and part of your topic.Your paper can talk about those ideas. In your paper, you can reflect on the reasoning (why) behind those legal and ethics issues. For example- your paper can explore- The police are needed in schools because…. it is good they are in schools because of ….; and ethically that is good and/or bad because of ….  Schools have to be careful with police in schools because…. You spoke about 911 and why the USA wants to protect its borders. That also can be reflected in your paper.  Lastly, you need to include how your topic (number 4) connects to (interconnects or relates to) at least one of the other topics (topics 1-3; 5-10). For example, I think you spoke about terrorism and malice and how some of that happens via social media (topic 2). That is a connection, because if a school limits and creates policies on social media it can protect its school and students.  You can write about -if that limitation is ethically good.  And it relates back to your topic in two-ways: protection, but also freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is necessary and good, but it needs to be handled legally, ethically and in such a way that schools can protect all the people involved. Too much restriction on freedom of speech in a school can be illegal and violate a student’s rights, but the correct amount protects them from harms, like bullying (topic 5) and harassment education (6). Also, you can protect students and employees by making sure that their privacy is protected (topic 3).  That is another connection to your topic. When FERPA is followed student records don’t get shared incorrectly, that protects the privacy of students and ultimately that protects the students. So, students’ identity doesn’t get stolen, or used.Also, you can further protect students by disciplining other students who do bad things (topic 8) and employees who do bad things (topic 9) to those students. So ethnically the school needs to use discipline (topics 8 and 9) to protect students in the education environment; that includes protection from Harassment (topic 6) and Bullying (topic 5).All the topics (1-10) are connected. You need to discuss some of those connections to your topic (4). Some of those connections can be both ethically good and bad. For example, the police in the schools to protect from outside threats is a smart use of police in schools, they can address danger, but we don’t want the police presence to be overpowering. We don’t want the schools to become dominated by police, we don’t want the students to be afraid of police in school or have the police presence in the school to deter student attendance. Police don’t discipline (topic 8) students. But are there to protect (4). So, these things must be done in a balanced way.
