This paper will explore research in order to examine if there are any direct benefits or advantages for students who attend schools that have developed and initiated a mandatory dress code policy, mainly in wearing school uniforms. My school, St. MaryÃ¢â¬â¢s Central High School, has recently adopted a uniform policy. It is ever changing as we are meeting the needs of our students. Uniforms show that you are part of an organization. Wearing it says we re all in this together, Also, if you wear your uniform with pride, it means you are half way there to being respectful, buying into what the organization is all about. Jason Wing, head teacher at the Neale-Wade academy in Cambridgeshire, says. (The Guardian) Uniforms have been around forÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦After President Clinton promoted the uniform initiative in his State of the Union address stating: Ã¢â¬Å"If it meant that the school rooms will be more orderly and more disciplined and that our young people will learn to evaluate themselves by what they are on the inside, instead of what theyÃ¢â¬â¢re wearing on the outside, then our public school should be able to require their student to wear uniforms.Ã¢â¬ (Mitchell) In 1994 LBUSD became the first and largest school district to require school uniforms for all students K-8. According to the US Department of Education, wearing a uniform can decrease the risk of violence and theft, instill discipline and help school officials recognize intruders who come to the school. (School Dress Codes Are Necessary and Constitutional) Taking away the ability for students to wear gang colors can drastically change the environment of a school. It puts all students on a level playing field and takes away the ease of identifying a personÃ¢â¬â¢s affiliation. In the Harvard Education Letter, researcher Marc Posner points out that in California--where state law requires that students be allowed to opt out of wearing school uniforms--students who don t wear uniforms are reported for disciplinary infractions at very high rates. In one school, students who didn t wear uniforms were sent to the office at a rate 22 times higher than that for uniformed students.

I am fixing my hair, and humming along to a song I heard on the radio, when I hear the concert start. I heard the announcements begin and the lights go dim. There was people all around me. People tripped over cords or called out demands. Some had microscopic mics on their faces, some had been putting on makeup on. Ã¢â¬Å"Welcome, welcome, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, to our 17th annual Belmont High Senior Concert!Ã¢â¬ Our chorus teacher cried. I was volunteered to sing a solo.

Question: Discuss About The Sometimes Attributed To Societal Factors? Answer: Introducation A state of mental illness deals with difficulties with thinking or recognizing people or object. The cause of mental illness sometimes attributed to societal factors. This essay gives an outline about the probable reasons behind the mental illness and provides in depth analysis of several factors, which seem vulnerable to the illness (Davidson et al., 2012). At the onset of 21st century, media has taken up a pivotal role to reduce the difficulties of mentally ill people by imparting several human-interest stories related to gender role, ethnicity, age, religion, social class just to establish parity in the society. Mental health implies ones emotional, psychological and societal well being. Mental health is largely affected by a person`s thinking, feelings towards society and surroundings, reaction and action towards the society and surroundings (Thoits, 2013). Other factors can affect ones mental health. Such as genetic factors, family history regarding mental health, trauma, abuses. Eating and sleeping inconsistency, getting deprived of daily activities, energy deficiency, a sudden felling of numbness, which leads to inexplicable aches, a tendency of shouting and putting up fight with acquaintances, are some of the visible traits of mentally ill health. The external elements can pose threat to mental illness (Davidson et al., 2012). Excessive smoking, drinking alcohol, consumption of drugs lead to mood swings, make ones confused, agitated, upset, frightened, forgetful, messy and clumsy all these make a person defenseless and hopeless which eventually develop suicide tendency within. According to me, mental well being can be maintained by some positive gestures. One has to accept the life with grace. Stress, tension, work and family pressure all these are inseparable in a human`s life. For living in a society, all have to deal with all these. To stay in a healthy mental state one has to have faith in own potential no matter how much dissatisfaction comes. In order to sustain in life coping up with stress is essential (Arboleda-Flrez Stuart, 2012). According to me, one has to be active physically which helps to break the monotony of life. The best way to stay active is to work which brings productivity both in life and career. Another way to stay mentally healthy is to stay connected with the society and the surroundings. Taking out time from the busy schedule for some social causes helps to minimize the personal frustration (Corrigan, Sokol, Rsch, 2013). Staying connected to the society helps to be acquainted with many people, which helps to know several other problems the other people are suffering. This sometimes helps to reduce ones frustration towards life, as the person is aware of the other people who are in dire. The best way to uphold the positivity in life is to help the underprivileged in the society (Davidson et al., 2012). Other than these social involvements, professional check up and physical work out is also important. Arising of mental illness among people not only the result of person`s own perspective towards society and life but prohibition of society. Age, gender, cast, ethnicity, disability, class these are some factors sometimes pose threat to mental illness; reduce the speed of recovery from the mental disorder. According to my beliefs, discrimination plays a major roll to push someone towards mental illness (Arboleda-Flrez Stuart, 2012). Discrimination prevails in society since centuries. Discrimination is witnessed in education, politics, and health and even within the families. Cultural discrimination impedes people to access to the proper health checkups. Sometimes unscientific cultural practices lead people to mental illness because when a mental illness is at the nascent stage if it is not checked up then it may grow (Corrigan, Sokol, Rsch, 2013). Racial discrimination deprives a person from leading a healthy life, which helps one to stay mentally fit. Discrimination in terms of cas ts and creed poses threat to people`s mental health. Several casts do not allow the believers to take any expert help regarding health. Sometimes, the dominating cast deprives the minor casts from availing proper health care (Corrigan, Powell Rsch, 2012). In some cases ethnicity inhibit people to get proper checkups as they strongly believe in their ancient practices, this lead to severity in the mental illness. Gender discrimination is a common factor, which prevails in every domain of the society. There is no cast, religion; ethnicity is free from gender discrimination. Due to this discrimination a particular remains deprived of proper lifestyle (Burton et al., 2013). Apart from that, in several households a particular gender is tortured and suffers from malnutrition and unnecessary dominance. The problem lies that due the gender discrimination a particular gender is ignored largely in terms of everything, which develop frustration within. Illnesses like, depression anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar personality are very common among women (Thoits, 2013). Freudian postulate states that women tend to neurosis, as they often become the victim of extreme aggression. Impact of societal patriarchy turns the psychological perception adverse. Certain factors like working outside or in the domestic sphere women often, experience dominance lead them to mental illness. The older population of the society is always at brink of developing mental illness. Based on the report of World Health Organization approximately 15% of the adults aged around 60 and above suffer from mental illness (Jones, 2013). Elderly people fall prey to emotional turmoil, which leads to mental illness. Dementia and depression are the two most common disorders are frequently seen among elderly people (Jones, 2013). Nursing the mentally disordered is quite challenging, as it needs special nursing training. Such as while treating a Psychiatric mental patient the electroconvulsive therapy is used which needs major physical care before and afterward (Robson et al., 2013). On the contrary, Psychotherapy includes behavioral and family research. According to me, mentally disordered people are vulnerable in the society so, a proper care and attention is needed to improve the condition. In case of the children, women and elderly people, who are sensitive towards every action and reaction to the society and surroundings, should be given to proper time (Davidson et al., 2012). Empowerment of the patient is very essential to diagnose mental illness. The diagnosis should be consists of continuous flow of interaction, participatory activities to share mutual interests and opinions. Lastly, care and respect to the ethnicity, cast and creed and religion will help to reduce the severity of mental illness. References Arboleda-Flrez, J., Stuart, H. (2012).

Out,Out-- By Robert Frost Kendal Kelly AP Lit 1st Block Ms. Bingham March 4, 2001 Necessity vs. Selfishness Robert Frosts insightful yet tragic poem Out, Out-- employs realistic imagery and the personification of a buzz saw to depict how people must continue onward with their lives after the death of a loved one, while also hinting at the selfish nature of the human race, whom oftentimes show concern only for themselves. The poem narrates the story of a boy who dies as a result of accidentally cutting off his hand with a buzz saw in his own yard. Frost employs imagery to reveal the setting, the boys yard in Vermont right before sunset, using vivid detail to describe the five mountain ranges within eyesight of the yard. The narrator foreshadows the tragic event to come when he wishes that the workers would have [called] it a day and [given] the boy the half hour that (he) counts so much when saved from work, the adult responsibility of cutting wood with a buzz saw. While nothing [was happening], the boys sister comes out to tell he and the other workers that supper is ready. The boy, in his excitement at the signal to end the days work, accidentally cuts himself with the treacherous buzz saw. Frost reveals a sense of the boys pain by employing the oxymoron rueful laugh, displaying both the boys extreme surprise and deep sorrow at the near-amputation of his hand. Frost continues to depict the shocking scene by describing the boys reaction as he [holds] up the hand, half in appealhalf as if to keep the life from spilling from his body. The adult responsibilities the boy has been faced with, combined with the horrific mangling of his own hand, lead to the boys own terrible revelation that all will soon spoil, which foreshadows yet the next tragedy, the death of the boy. Frost utilizes dialogue to convey the boys pleading voice as he begs his sister to not let the doctor cut [his] hand off. The syntax Frost chose was specifically selected to reflect the boys life as it begins to diminish. Compared with the first few lines of the poem, the concluding ones consist of short, choppy sentences as death closes in on the boy. The doctor arrives and gives the boy ether, an anesthetic, after which Frost describes the boys breathing as shallow and weakening while he lay and puffed his lips out with his breath. Frost paints such real images with his words that the reader can almost see as the watcher at (the boys) pulse[listens] to his heart as the beating fades from little to less to nothing, which [ends] the boys life. The theme does not become clear to the reader until the last sentence, depicting how the family and friends [are] not the one dead, so they turn to their affairs, and proceed on with their lives. Frost conveys the necessity of how people must go on, even after a tragedy such as the death of a loved one, because life continues, and so must they. Even though going on with life is a necessity, the speed in which the family and friends proceed to do so causes the reader to wonder what their motives are--necessity or selfishness. Frost personifies the buzz saw so that it seems to come alive with a will of its own. The phrase snarled and rattled repeats three times throughout the poem to depict an image of the buzz saw whirring back and forth. At times it [runs] light, or [has] to bear a load], which conveys the saw as a living being that must carry something. Frost gives the buzz saw an ominous air, a will of its own, when it [leaps] out at the boys hand as if to prove saws [know] what supper [means]. In this way, Frost shies away from the fact that the boy brings death upon himself by getting momentarily distracted from cutting the wood, accenting blame on an inanimate object. Along with faulting the buzz saw, the reader can also cast blame on the parents for making the boy, a child at heart, take on adult responsibility to [do] a mans work, which results in
