Virtual Congress Vote. This bill is brought to the floor by Congressman Arttie123 (D) of Georgia. The bill is available in the comments section of this poll.
On this vote they Yays are 27%, the Nays are 73%. The bill is not passed.
CORRECTION. The Yays shall be taken as yeas instead due to the recent change in the term for a vote in the affirmative in the Virtual Congress.
Half of it yes, and half no. Since I can't say yes to all of it, I must say no.
nay for sure, the first 4 are wildly irresponsible policies. and the last one should only apply in criminal cases where it already does. the second to last one is fine if it somehow don't already a right
12 year olds will fight against braces or taking medicine, they don't always know what's best for them. Also if the kid is in the principles office for bullying they get a lawyer! I'm not paying for a 12 year old to get a lawyer!
They have the right to an attorney. They don't automatically get one.
Why do they need an attorney?
A 12 year old doesn't need one. A 17 year old maybe, depending on several variables such as was there a crime, drugs, etc. And even then, they should pay for it. Would a student ever use an attorney? Probably not. But you never know if you need one.
Well if a kid is arrested he has the right to an attorney away
True. But I think with this you are allowed an attorney before charges are set. Such as if they say you have weed and a school trial goes down before a police investigation, you get an attorney during that process.
The moment you are detained you have the right to answer no questions you do not want to (5th amendment) and you have the right to an attorney throughout the whole process already
students have no rights, oh, they have the right to attend school.
They do/should have SOME rights. This is too far though
It's a authoritarian regime at school. Strict rules should be followed or chaos could the lesson of the day.
I'm Not meaning like that Ron. We both agree this bill is way too radical
Should not be legislated by the federal government. A state concern.
So if I wanted to, I could be able to wear a T Shirt with a naked person on it (not that I own one). That's ridiculous.
Against: Public schools are government property. Anybody on government property is subject to being searched, right?
Im not even sure what the first point really means.
The second and third points just seem silly and should be up to the discretion of the school.
I'd support the last three points if they were worded better.
I think it's a good idea to combat corruption in the public schools. I wouldn't want it to apply to private schools though. So yay for public, nay for private/other.
Some graphic t shirts should not be at school and can actually disrupt a classroom. Some kids bring guns and knives to school as well as drugs. The lockers are state property and should be allowed to be searched. Nay.
It's one thing to have a students bill of rights, this is another all together
So they can wear shirts promoting sex, violence, amd hate?
They can deny a search if its been reported they have drugs in their locker?
Good ideas at first glance but I have to say nay
I don't have my mind make up for sure yet on this one...
I'm probably going to vote this down. They need to be prepared to be respectful adults and not wearing nasty shirts and stuff
You made the correct decision!
I oppose this bill. Students should learn to act professionally. Students should not wear shirts that depicts sexual material, advertising drugs, use profanity, etc
I am with political on this.
We have enough distractions as it is. We do not need to turn the schools into a circus.
I Meade a quick decision on this bill, but I think it is the right one!
I think voting Nay is the only sensible option.
Jake, political (if you have Skype) do you want to work on an actual students bill of rights?
Oh shoot! I forgot to set up a skype account!
Matt yes I'd love to do that and this isn't a partisan issue so it shouldn't be WWIII. Political set one up!
Y'all go ahead and negotiate. I am horrible with technology. I probably need a camera.
You don't need a camera political.
Can y'all post some of your ideas in the forum.
Would there be an exception for private schools and home schooled children?
Most likely not because it is not a government school.
The home school administrator are the parents. What are you saying?
