Uniforms In Public School - 1,538 words
... dropped rapidly and 600 students have been given detention and 200 suspended. This did exactly the opposite of what uniforms are suppose to accomplish. If policy makers are serious about finding solutions to the problem of school violence, maybe they should ask the real experts: the students themselves. The ACLU recently conducted a series of focus groups with high school students asking them what would help reduce violence in school. Uniforms did not make the list. Their suggestion: 1. Since school violence mimics that of society at large, schools should seriously confront and discuss issues of racism and cultural conflict. 2. School entrances should be secured. 3. More extracurricular ...

What is war? Websters Encyclopedic Dictionary describes it as: an armed clash between nations or factions in the same nation.

World Strruggle Comes To Division - 2,246 words
It is thought that this war that is been ongoing for over a year, began with the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand; however, many other reasons led to this war. Some occurring reasons date as far back as the late 1800's. Nationalism, militarism, imperialism, and the system of alliances were four main factors that pressed the great powers towards this explosive war. Nationalism is the love of one's country rather that the love of a native region. Throughout the 1800's many national groups that were driven by nationalism tried to unite by governments controlled by their own people. However, this desire to unite all the people of a nation under one government had devastating possi ...

P.397) What the Allies could not agree on was the normalization of the rest of Europe, since Stalin had taken immediate steps to see that could not happen based on Russian security needs. The response to this new form of political aggression would trumpet the first salvos of the Cold War. The trigger, which prompted action, was the chaotic economic situation in Greece. As stated earlier, Churchill proposed and Stalin accepted the division of territory on the half sheet of paper in the Moscow meeting of 1944. By 1946 however, the percentages in most of those territories was 100% Soviet, 0% Allied. This naturally caused alarm for Churchill and Truman, who perceived any fur ...
