Students Rights and Responsibilities

Runyon v. McCrary, 427 U.S. 160 (1970)

I chose this case because I know public schools are not allowed to segregate or exclude students by race. The reason is Brown v. Board of Education case. This raises a question, can private schools segregate and/or exclude students? Private schools are not allowed to exclude or segregate students, because a federal law protects the equal rights of racial minorities to enter into contracts. The only exception is for a religious school where the religion itself can justify racially segregated schooling. This has changed teaching in private schooling because allstudents have the right to be in the private school. Unless the private school can justify racially segregation. This impacts students in a positive way. The students have the right to be in private schools.

Teacher Action

I will have to preform different actions to avoid segregation and/or excluding students by race in a private school setting. I could have my classroom's posters, pictures, books, music, toys, dolls, and other materials are diverse in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, age, family situations, disabilities, and so on. I also need to avoid racial stereotypes towards students and parents.

Diversity

This case is related to diversity; therefore, my actions are related to promoting diversity. Students need to feel they belong in the classroom. If they do not then learning is little difficult for the students.

Technology

When using technology, I can choose websites or apps that will teach students about diversity. It can also teach the students even though they are different from other people they can still be friends.

Benefits

The students will benefit from understanding it is okay for someone to be different they can still learn just like them. The students will learn they can work with other students even if they are differnt in race. The students will also learn about diversity from me choosing teachnology activities that are related to diversity.

Teacher Professional Rights and Responsibles

Mancha v. Field Museum of Natural History, 283 N.E. 2d 898 (Ill. App. 1972)

I selected this case because teachers are liable to supervise students. But are teachers liable to supervise 100% of the time? This case is significant, because if informs teachers on the fact that supervising students 100% of the times they are not liable for. As long as, the place does not show a high rate of danger. This is displayed in this case when a student was assaulted at a museum when the two teachers did not supervise the students 100% of the time. The judge ruled in the teachers favor because a museum is not a place of danger. This has an impact on teaching because most people believe teachers need to be liable to supervise students 100% of the time, which is not true. THis has a negative effect on students because they were to have an injury. If the place is not concentered dangerest, then the teacher may not be liable for not 100% supervising students.

Teacher Action

The teacher action I will being doing, on field trips, is having adult chaperones and the buddy system. Having adult chaperones will help me in supervising students. The buddy system will help with students not being by themselves.

Diversity

THis case is divers based on how students learn. Students are instructed to a new way of learning when they go on a field trip. Even though the case says teacher are not liable to supervise students 100 % of the time in a place that is not considered dangerset, I would still have adult chaperones.

Technology

If I was unable to have adult volunteers then teachnology can assess me. I could pull up a virtual field trip. This would allow the students to experience the field trip in a safe environment.

Benefit

This case does not benefit student, because teachers are not liable on supervising students 100% of the time when in a place that is considered a safe place. However, this does not mean teacher should stop supervising student. The teacher still needs to take precautions when taking students on a field trip.

Teacher Personal Rights and Responsible

Carmi v. Metro. St. Louis Sewer Dist., 471 F. Supp. 119 (E.D. MO. 1978)

I selected this case because I have reading, reading comprehension, and spelling desabilities, which effect my everyday life, I am capable of being a great teacher; I just have to do it differently. It is converting to know I will not be denied the job because of my disabilities. This case is significant because it explains the meaning of "otherwise qualified Individual." Carmi went to court because he was not hired based on the fact that he was physically disabled. The district courts did not rule in his favor. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor explaining, "it prohibits the non-hiring of a disabled individuals when the disability does not prevent that individual from performing the job. This impacts teaching because this gives concert to people that have disabilities and want to teach. This does not have direct affect to students. All though, it gives them a chance to see diversity in teachers.

Teacher Action

One action I will remember is to allow students with disabilities the ability to try activities that the other students are doing. Another action would be working with co-teachers that are disable differntly than me.

Diversity

This case is related to diversity in the fact that co-workers could be diverse in disabilities. I know that when I work in a school district I would be the one that is diverse. This would allow the students to see they can be successful even if they are disabled.

Technology

Technology is a great way to help my students and me to be able to do are jobs. For me technology will help me with spelling when I use spell check, and using video of people reading stories. For a student that is physically disable teachnology can help with movement and having the class job of sharpening pencils.

Benefits

This has a benefit for students in the fact that they would be seeing diversity. The students would see how people with disabilities can still do their jobs, it would just be different compared to most people.
