Write your future, can you?! 😉 Wishing someone the best of luck could mean saying “Good Bye”. 😉 Welcome back dear friends from the US, the UK, Kenya, Malaysia, Canada, and India 😉
Will you forgive me if I told you that I had that great idea, then by the time I got home, it was evaporated!
It’s my mistake because I know better. Usually I jot down on any piece of paper any idea I feel it would compose an appealing topic for most of you, but for some reason I thought that I didn’t need to write down, and that I would never forget it. But here I am fetching everywhere to find it but all my attempts went in vain.
Yesterday, we attended a meeting for new proposed curriculum for college students. Other attendants and I was listening for one hour for a presentation. Only one piece of input I disagree with, but I didn’t verbalize it for lack of an example. The attendants were teachers, instructor assistants and administrative staff.
The piece that I didn’t swallow and all other teachers talked about later on was about allowing profanity in that proposed curriculum.
The lecturer said that: “they (the students) know everything, why should we ignore that fact? We wouldn’t give them something new that they know nothing about…” that was her rationale. She claimed that their curricula were used for three years, and that they were working on them to be expanded to other areas not only in the Bay Area “certain” schools.
What do you think teachers?
How could we have a code of conduct and allow profanity at the same time. May be students know about sexual matters, but that doesn’t mean that we should encourage profanity.
Your students are looking for structure. They want to know the right and the wrong. They need you to raise their standards. You are their good example, their role model, their candle that light the correct path for them. You need to be everything they expect you to be. It’s tough to do that, but teachers‘ job is never easy, and you know that all the way.
Is profanity allowed in schools? Is it punishable?
No, it is not tolerated. Yes it is. Even if law does not punish the student who speak profanity, the regulations and the rules the school adhere to can be applied to the harshest possible ones.
Is profanity a form of expression protected by the First Amendment?
It can be, depending upon the circumstances and context. There is no general exception for profanity under the First Amendment unless the profanity qualifies as “fighting words.” Fighting words are defined as words that by their very nature incite an immediate breach of the peace.
Think about it, ask yourself: What do parents expect from you (teachers) when they trust you with their own kids? What is the purpose of being at school? Is profanity among the goals that should be achieved at school?
When you have the right answers for this question, you would support no profanity system of education.
There are plenty of other channels for inappropriate language and wrong models, and Youtube has just published this video as a live example for you:
As for venting out and getting anger out of the students‘ system, many other methods exist and work far better than that unacceptable suggestion. It is a weak justification for destroying our own future generations. Using a foul language will not only kill the natural good in them but also it will confuse them and bring doubts to their minds about right or wrong. Confirm with your kids/students that the norm is to be a good decent person not the opposite! 🙄
I’m not sure why the trend for confusing people, and accusing them of being too conservative, when they disagree. There should be a majority agreement, instead of having one narrow-minded thinker do all the decision without taking into account the bad effects of such a proposal.
Pls comment, ask question, act as teachers and keep doing your right role!
Until we chat again, keep talking loudly and hanging up with our topics with our hugs and kisses ❤
