Looking for some ideas on stopping police brutality on animals.
- The minimum wage policy is dissatisfying to the people of our society because of the threshold wage individuals receive.Minimum wage also contributes to inflation, automation displacement and also forces companies to move their jobs overseas because labor costs are lower. What do you think about the minimum wage policy?
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.
We are working on placing more scanners in our school because we have a total of four school in and with two scanners in our school it is hard to get through scanning without there being such a wreck.
The policy my group is working on is trying to change the security scanning policy. We want to change the scanning policy because it is chaos and makes students late when we get in the building. There is no orginization and we would like to make a diffrence and make it less chaotic.
Their should be more scanners because if their isn't it would be chaos in the morning and it would cause a lot of kids to be late to class.
New york is the only state allowing regents,meanwhile all the other states do not take them yet these states graduation rates are high.Why is it that NYC still kept the regents policy?The SATs is a standardized test that is effective,and this determines whether or not you would get accepted,shouldn't students focus more on the SATs than the regents?
The current policy in High School for Community leadership is that students should wear uniforms as there is a uniform however it is not enforced.The plan is to propose to enforce the existing policy by modifying the uniform to make them more modern and appealing to present generation, and also enforcing the enforce the existing policy requiring students to wear uniform.
What will it take to get more scanners in my school
We working on modify the DOE scanning policy in NYC specifically in our school Jamaica Campus
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. However, this is too much for the high school students Regents is bringing more stress on student life. 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?
Throughout high school in New York students are required to take regents every year to determine whether or not they can graduate. Do colleges even look at students regents score when looking at the admissions ? Do regents rally effect the college that students apply to?
New york students have to take regents throughout elementary school and high school in order to graduate or move on to the next grade. Every year the test get harder and longer and we are the only state to take these New York state regents on top of the regents we have finals and portfolios to be done as well. Is it fair that we are the only state that take these state required regents? is fair that these test define if we go to the next grade or graduate?
Having uniforms makes it easier to identify students all have the same fashion sense limits bullying reasoning , safety and less violence. Gives the school a good representation for first appearence and when Board of Education comes.
Minimum wage is a highly controversial topic in terms of the positive and negative effects it has on communities. Minimum wage is the least amount of a worker can get paid.
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.
if you have any questions and comments to help us and for yall to get know more information lets us know
Our topic is about the presidential electoral college. The Electoral College is to give people a say in the government. The 12th amendment breaks down and how the electoral college works.

Do you know anyone that was raped? if you do, how did you help them mentally and physically overcome that challenge?
What's your definition of statutory rape? how would you make awareness in your community?
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.
Why do you think rape is not brought about much in college only but when someone is killed?
Our project is about the Rape Policy. The rape policy says ¨The policy of rape is when someone forces another into a sexual act. This is normally charged with a felony of the first degree.¨
I live in Pennsylvania. The problem we have in this community is Domestic Violence and Violence Against Women's Act.

My name is Kyrai and I live in Philadelphia. In my communtiy crime rate is through the room. Most of these crimes is gun violnce. Every day a teen is subjected toi gun violnce and may have lost their life. I myself have lost a loved one to gun violnce. The bardy hand gun policy states that everyone needs to go through a background check before they can be issued a hand gun. However hundrards of people are getting their hands on handguns, that are to young to obtain a handgun and doesnt go through the correct background check, even with the Brady handgun law in effect. The Brady handgun policy needs to be modified and enforced.

Intentionally torturing a dog or a cat is a Class C felony punishable with a fine up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment up to 10 months. Any suggestions on what can be done to solve this problem? What makes people as human treat animals as they do without any remorse? Why hasn't any actions been taken?

We need some suggestions on how make community policing more effective in our city of philadelphia.
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.
Point out some ways that can make student want to come to school more often. What can the student or teachers do to achieve this? It can be from more student activities, less stress from homework, more field-trips, etc.
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".
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?"
do you think texting and driving is a problem in our community
Teen drug abuse has many sorts of affects on teens but they have an essay access. They can easily get it illegally or through pharmacies. These teens don't really know the affects it can have on them. Drugs is a chemical that affects the brain and tapes in to communication system. Drugs also have an affect on them getting addicted and dropping out of school. Study shows 31.4% of teen drop outs is due to drugs. What changes do you think there can be by stopping teen with drugs.
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.

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.

Community Policing should be enforced within Oakland communities because it can help reduce implicit bias by the policemen getting to know, understand, and develop a relationship with the citizens as well as activities.

Here in California we passed the End Of Life Option Act allowing doctor assisted suicide if medically allowed. But, this allows insurance companies to deny regular treatments and instead offer the "suicide drug" this has happened in every state that has passed the law.

(We will be releasing a change.org petition soon for support of modifiying the law to fix this issue.)

The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.

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?

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?

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?
