In Bell Gardens High, many students and teachers feel as if the school can do more to promote good grades. What kind of reward systems should the school have that will motivate all students to get good grades?

The youth should be involved in policy making because they are the future. The youth needs to understand how the government works so we can make America a better place to live in. We need to be able to properly make changes.

I decided to do my paper on gay rights. The reason I wanted to do my paper on this sensitive topic such as this, is because I wanted to learn more on how things are going with their movement. Another reason why I wanted to do this paper is because I hear things about gay people in public and I think that they should just mind their own business because they aren’t harming anyone else or disturbing the peace instead the people saying they are. Since 1924 a lot has happened in the gay rights community from them having their first organizations to the Obama administration recognizing the 1300 gay people in Utah as a married couple. The problem is the people because if the majority of the people don’t want gay marriage to get legalized it probably won’t be. The majority of the people are religious people, I have nothing against religion I myself am a Catholic and I was raised that gays are bad and so on; all though I don’t not like these people and the things they decide to do is their own business with that being said they as HUMAN BEINGS still deserve rights.
People should care about this problem because this is something that affects the whole nation and could possibly change it. The reason I say this is because I believe that this is a good change and the sooner we do something to fix it, the better we are off, if you think about it gay people are everywhere it could be the person making our food, making sure our health is good so we don’t get sick, or the person handling our bags of food, but we probably don’t know because if they do confess that they are gay they could possibly get fired because people wouldn’t want to receive care or food from them because somehow we think they have some type of “plague” or “illness” that we don’t want to catch. Many people would take their kid or kids to a priest and try to exorcise the demons or heal them from this so called “sickness” which in most likely 99% of the time it didn’t work “According to church dogma, homosexuality is a sin foisted on humans by demons who take possession of their bodies and compel them to act against God's will.”

The things we can do to fix this problem is we can inform people that they are human too, I think the hardest group of people to convince would be the people who are religious and are against this, but once we do everyone else would start to agree. Things that can happen is send out flyers to peoples neighborhoods, and write letters to our state representative and to the Obama administration that this is important. Also we could do an online public chart on their views on this topic and find out what else we can do to help out.

In the past 30 years childhood obesity in children ages 12-19 has increased from 5% to nearly 21%. There are a number of factors that play a part in this startling statistic, one of the more influential factors being the low quality food that is served by public schools. This is a large part of a child’s diet. 80% of elementary school students are eating lunches offered by the school. Children are offered 10 meals a week from the school. This is nearly half of their total meals assuming they eat the average 3 meals a day. This large portion of a child’s diet needs to be the best quality it can be in an attempt to improve their overall health. According to USA Today, meat that is served to over 31 million kids a day in school lunches does not even meet the standards of the nations fast food chains. School lunches include many foods that are high in fat and low in nutritional content. Looking at an average week, the meals often include foods like tater tots, french fries, hot dogs, mystery barbecue, canned corn, canned fruit, and chicken nuggets. Sadly these “hot lunches” are not the whole problem. A problem is also seen in the extremely unhealthy options offered in al a carte lines. In this lines “quick” food is sold. They sell pizza, chips, cookies, soda, candy, and many other small snack foods. These would not be a problem if they were only part of a child’s lunch and were mixed with foods that contain nutritional value but they are not. Everyday in school many children sit down with a slice of pizza, a bag of chips, and a rice crispy treat.
This is a large issue in our schools today and it is something we need to change. The obesity rate of children in the United States is rising because of the poor quality food they are creating the habit of eating and the lack of understanding and education about nutrition. Obesity causes many sicknesses in children and may cause serious issues such as diabetes, and heart issues. The quality of school foods needs to be raised in an attempt to provide better quality lunches and start good eating habits in our children.
In an attempt to change this we are planning on first talking to our principle to see what can be done about this. We also want to raise awareness in our school of what kids are actually eating so that our idea can gain support and attempt to make a change.

Take a look at Canada. Gay marriage was legalized across the country on July 20, 2005.The things we can do to fix this problem is we can inform people that they are human too, I think the hardest group of people to convince would be the people who have a religion and are against this, but once we do everyone else would start to agree. Things that can happen is send out flyers to peoples neighborhoods, and write letters to our state rep. and to the Obama administration that this is important. Also we could do an online public chart on their views on this topic and find out what else we can do to help out. By doing this chart i can create a website that informs people and has this poll up so i can keep information somewhat relevant.

In 2013, an average of four children died daily because of abuse here in the United States. Nearly 70% of these deaths occurred in children under the age of four. What’s worse is 30% of abuse survivors will continue this cycle with their own children. This growing issue has drawn much attention from the media and government, but there is much more work to be done in this field. We think the most effective way for the government to tackle this problem would require a two pronged approach; improving foster care procedures and requiring parents of children who show signs of abuse or neglect to take a mandatory child education course.
Recently, there have been reports of foster children in Colorado being chemically treated and abused within the system in order to contain specific cases. The state has reportedly been heavily medicating children of all ages with drugs such as Abilify, Zyprexa, and Risperdal. While there are investigations underway in order to stop this injustice, the state of Colorado specifically has been dragging its feet on this reform for years. Our suggestion for the policy within the state to aid in this process is to bring more public attention to this egregious maltreatment in order to demand the state of Colorado to completely withdrawal the use of pharmaceutical/psychotropic medications from all state funded child protection agencies and only allow these medications to be introduced to children by doctors/ medical institutes in completely separate/third parties from these agencies. We’d also like to promote a mandatory second opinion from another separate medical professional before any action is taken.
As for classes, 27% of children who are abused/ neglected become delinquents. Instead of treating these children as criminals, the state government must look deeper into the background of these children. We insist a policy be created by the state of Colorado that any child offenders be required to attend child therapy/reform programs, and the family of said child be placed through a background check and take mandatory classes on child care procedures and how to handle disorderly youth. Though there are programs out there for at risk youth, they are only voluntary.
