Civil Liberties & Civil Rights Webercise

In the related post "End Abusive, Discriminatory Discipline in Schools: Give All Students a Chance to Thrive," Alice Farmer in the Human Rights Program illustrates the fact that all children need a fair, equal start in life in order to thrive and contribute to their societies later. In some cases, many of the children have learning disabilities or histories of poverty, abuse, or neglect, and would benefit from additional educational and counseling service. They say it’s a school-to-prison pipeline. African American, Latino, Native American and other students of color are subjected to different punishment than white students for engaging in the same behavior. This goes against the students civil rights. Each and every student should be equal in each and every way and should not be discriminated. The 14th amendment guarantees every person the equal amount of rights such as those than everyone in the country. Human rights law prohibits discrimination in all levels of education. What's more, the right to dignity – one of the founding principles of human rights – protects children from abusive or discriminatory school discipline practices. U.S. schools – and indeed, all schools worldwide – should implement effective, positive discipline systems, so that children's human rights are protected and so that every student can maximize his or her potential.

What Is The ACLU?

In the illustration of this political cartoon we see a student arrested being sent to prison due to his misbehavior and we also see a man stating that they are going to release low-level offenders to make space. In this cartoon, students and security are involved. What the image is trying to point out is the fact that students are being brought into facilities at a young age whether it being from school not disciplining them correctly. By schools having abusive disciplines , students come more intact with them being incarcerated. This leads to students not maximizing their full potential in school. By that being said the students come into that. My trending issue and my related post may relate to this political cartoon due to the fact that students are having abusive disciplinaries while it is something they can avoid. This demonstrates the fact that students have extreme measures of discipline in school and it's basically a pipeline to prison. This shows that students are being deprived from their human rights and are not able to maximize to their full potential due to that.

Minority students in schools across the U.S. are not getting a fair chance – in part because they are more likely to be subjected to abusive, degrading disciplinary tactics ranging from over policing to corporal punishment. Facing these and other obstacles, minority students are more likely to drop out of school and end up in the criminal justice system.

Political Cartoon

The ACLU is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.

The ACLU has evolved in the years since from this small group of idealists into the nation’s premier defender of the rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. With more than 500,000 members, nearly 200 staff attorneys, thousands of volunteer attorneys, and offices throughout the nation, the ACLU of today continues to fight government abuse and to vigorously defend individual freedoms including speech and religion, a woman’s right to choose, the right to due process, citizens’ rights to privacy and much more. The ACLU stands up for these rights even when the cause is unpopular, and sometimes when nobody else will.
