5 Codes of Power
The idea of power is one that mankind has been struggling to define since the beginning of time.
The cavemen believed power to be a show of brute strength. The Roman rulers believed power
was given from the Gods and Goddess of the sky. In today’s society, the president of the United
States uses his power to make impactful decisions that affect our country and the world. One
thing is quite clear, the word power has a plethora of meanings.

. Cheating prevention programs and locked browsers, while helpful, cannot prevent students from using other means of technology such as cell phones to look up answers. Educational institutions often have an academic dishonesty policy stating that if students are caught cheating they will fail the assignment and may fail the course. Despite this many students are willing to risk failing in exchange for the unlikelihood that any cheating would be caught. There are countless websites dedicated to “helping” students with their school assignments. Flashcard websites such as Quizlet hold the answers to many online course exams, and online calculators are capable of solving complicated algebraic

This is a very controversial issue for myself as I wasin 4-H while in high school and I knew a lot of home schoolers. In fact some of my good friends switched from public school to home schooling in the middle of their high school years. Some of my own opinions ondisadvantages of home schooling include the loss of cultural and economic differences, for example in most public school and many private school situations you are going to have kids of many different ethnic backgrounds. When I first learned about homeschooling, while in a public middle school I was kind of shocked at the idea and had a lot of feelings against homeschooling for example critics of homeschooling have pointed out that

To Pledge or Not to Pledge
Students in American public schools should not be required to recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” everyday.
First of all, repeating the “Pledge of Allegiance” on a daily basis does not signify that the values within the pledge are true or genuine. Dale Kennedy, an eighth grade teacher at Thomas Law Reed School, argues that not reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance” each day can cause “… our republic [to] not stand the pressures of time“ (4). Nonetheless, the reality is that simply declaiming the “Pledge of Allegiance” continuously does not bring the earnest desires and wishes within this patriotic passage to life. John Green, a teacher

Is a common joke used by many in meme culture to represent the Feminist movement, but to those in the movement may consider this to be disrespectful or hate speech. This oversensitivity extends to college campuses from their policing of educational content or the interactions between students, staff and other students. Censorship is never good, “protecting” students from unpleasant words and ideas is detrimental to the student as they may dismiss ideas that don't hit home with them resulting in them essentially directing their own educational experiences, like training a medical

Understanding and Narrowing the “Academic Achievement Gap” in K-12th Grade Schools
Low socioeconomic status(SES) students are members of low social class families who
are impeded by the educational system and occupy lower-wage jobs. The United States flawed
education system disadvantages low-socioeconomic status students, causing an academic
achievement gap. Because the future of America depends on the education of all, not just
some, of its youth, it is important to understand and narrow the academic achievement gap in
grades K-12. Although the U.S. government has attempted to narrow the academic
achievement gap between low and high socioeconomic students
