Gun violence in New York has increased throughout the years and have impacted not only adults, but minors as well. This issue has caused harm to many  people all over the city. Our goal is to see/hear less death on the news due to gun violence. The rate of gun violence has to go down, in order for us the students, adults, seniors any Etc. to feel safe on the streets. People have lost loved ones and neighborhoods have been unsafe due to gun violence in New York. This problem needs to be addressed and solved to reduce the violence and crime rate caused by guns.

When there is an incident of bullying, a school with zero tolerance policy will be quick to suspend the bullying. While punishing the bully is important, there should an emphasis placed on how effective the punishment is and whether it contributes to healing or reforming the relationship between the bully and the victim.

Regents is a exam in New York City and students needs to get the regents diploma in order to graduate from high school. Each subject has a regents exam for example English, algebra, living environment, global history, US history.

It is much more harder than the regular exams. we need to stop this madness because a lot of students from different country is not able to understand the regents exam besides why only New York have to take the regents?

    This project is about abortions and how pro choice and life can go hand and hand with the argument. The policy we used is Roe V. Wade, which indicates women need to have the choice to pick if they want to keep the child or ending the pregnancy (abortion). Roe V.S. Wade is an case, On Jan. 22, 1973, the Supreme Court ruled that the government cannot interfere with a woman’s right to have an abortion. And this policy is used and brought up til this day because people forget the rights that women have over thier own bodies. This project was chosen to make it aware that women have a say now and can´t let the govnerment have a say on their personal life.

our topic is gun violence, and Our policy Licenses to Carry a Firearm (LTCF) needs to be reinforced based upon possession when someone goes to buy a gun they need to buy a case or a container that will hold the object so minors won’t have access to the gun. We think that your policy should be enforced more on the people that owns guns and keep it more protected from minors.

California has been pushing to legalize marijuana for awhile, and today patients can use marijuana for medical use. Patients can legally purchase and consume this plant as long as they have recommendation (prescription) from a medical doctor.  In recent years Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana for recreational use and it is taxed by the state. Marijuana may be legal in a state for either medical or recreational use, but it is still illegal federally. Since two other states have legalized marijuana for recreational use and California has legalized it for medical use. Should the rest of the US legalize marijuana us for medical or recreation use? Explain why or why not.

Negativity tends to be draining, especially if it's all you see and all you hear. The lack of positive motivation towards the African American youth will cause them to continue to do the negative things portrayed in the media.

Our project talks about the health and safety of students attending high schools across the nation. In our public service announcement, we challenge people to remember what it means to engage in safe sexual activity because of recent surveys, many students take risks by having unprotected sex, disregarding the possibilities of contracting STD's or other viral infections.

Our mission is to share our own outlook on this issue by asking campuses, including our own, to help students stay protected and safe by distributing contraceptives to teens who may or who are sexually active, and to offer an expansion on sexual education to help remind students of the risks in sexual engagement.

We encourage this method of safety as a new way for teens to stay safe because of the many risks sexual activity includes, such as STD's and various infections they may contract. In our public service announcement, we ask you to think: "Would you like your school to provide you with contraceptives to have safe sex?" and "How much do you remember from sex ed?"

Our project involves removing the policy that states that teachers can use homework as a part of your grade. We believe that homework is not necessary to prove whether a student knows certain concepts or not. Homework is purely practice for what you know. It is useful, however, to solidify your knowledge but it should not be required as a portion of your grade. Some of the reasons we have found that it would be effective to remove this policy is that some students get overly stressed out by homework preventing their focus in class where they actually learn the materials.

So the Achievement gap is this gap between the numbers that we are scoring and the numbers that we should be scoring on our tests. This is caused by oversized classrooms and having non certified teachers in the classroom  or having teachers on emergency credentials . We have suggested that the people should go into the school board meetings and bring this to their attention because most of the time it is just pushed aside to deal with "Later".

In high school many friendships and relationships are created. These are the years real relationships are established. With that being said 47% of high school students as of 2013 reported being sexually active .Although this may not seem a high percentage. 65 out of 80% didn't know where to go to get birth control, condoms, pregnancy test Ect. 75 out of 80 also didn't know how many STDs and STIS there are. Most common number was 5 when its about 27 or more. 50 out of 80 students didn't know whatan STD or STI was. This shows students weren't properly educated on sex health. Do you think bringing a clinic to arroyo that not only to  educates students about the dangers of sex, but also give them the necessities they need. All while in confidentiality.

Many students believe that the time given in class, isn't enough. Others may think that the classroom is too big and that the teachers don't have enough time to give each student individual time to explain the assignments or homework. In a case study that i have done in my government class, is that teachers are overwhelmed with the amount of so many students. A lot of the students do want the classroom size to reduced. reduction within the classroom size would benefit the whole, more classes being made in the school, small class size gives the teachers to explain the assignments to the students.

Hey guys,

In schools, student misbehavior is really negative on their education.  Students that disrupt class also take away time from other students.  As this is not fair for those who do want to succeed, would it help to implement methods that build a better relationship people within the learning community.  Things like restorative justice circles can do this, and could lead to the prevention of many future student disruptions.  Let us know what we should look into, or maybe restorative justices circles would be effective enough to change the classroom.

Students dropping out before they finish school won't be able to get along with life without an education. It needs to be fixed soon because everyone regrets it later on in life when they face the real world. It would be amazing seeing this result at least 95% walking the stage and getting their diplomas .

Police brutality is a very viral topic that is talked about nationwide. The problem with some police officers is that they use excessive force when is not necessary. There are existing policies that punish police officers who do use excessive force. One of the policies there is  "under the color or authority" which punishes police officers either by imprisonment no longer than 1 year or by having them pay a fine. On top of that they get fired. So there is policies that punish police officers who use excessive force. We need your help by suggesting reforms that would help our communities get together to stop police brutality and build healthy relationships with police officers. I would also appreciate it if you express your personal opinion on how you feel about the punishments police officers get vs a general person. Is it enough? Do they need more punishment? Is it fair?

Also we need the media to get more involved because Elder Abuse happens everyday but we don't hear about it everyday in the media. Please feel free to respond.

Longer Lunch

Do you believe that we should have longer lunches? Have you experienced lunch lines that are so long you had to wait until later to get your lunch and only have less than 10 minutes to eat it all? What if you have to make up a test or quiz that you cannot make up at any other time because you're doing something after school? Many people complain about these lines, in which many people cut into and therefore is not fair to those that have been waiting in line for a long while. What is your opinion on this? Do you believe Arroyo's lunch times should be longer, or are they fine the way they are?

Distracted driving is a huge problem nowadays because we live in a technological age. According to a recent study, an average person checks their phone 46 times a day. The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year. Do you believe a textalyzer(a device similar to a breathalyzer in which it scans a phone for activity before leading up to a crash) and raising fines for distracted driving will decrease accidents caused by distracted driving?

Health Center

Health care is difficult for some children to receive. Some may not even be able to go to their own doctor nor have access to health insurance. Having a health center in schools would be more convenient for those students who are in need of help or may be injured and need aid. Health centers could also benefit not only students but also staff members. 

 

What is your opinion on campus health centers? Do you think schools are required to have health centers? Are there any suggestions to be able to get a health center?
