The Charter versus Public Debate
The article Charter Schools vs. Public Schools: Which One is Under Performing takes a closer look at the realities of the charter versus public school debate. In some cities, such as Manhattan, the District of Columbia and parts of Los Angeles, charter schools are a necessary option for parents that cannot afford private schools but want a better education for their children than what the public school system can provide, according to the big screen documentary “Waiting for Superman” written and directed by Davis Guggenheim. This particular article focuses on charter schools as a whole and looks at the entire country. In the article, arguments are shown for both the charter school side and public school side of the argument. Unfortunately, very little factual data is given to support the opinions given. Demographic information, test data and other various factors used to measure performance are mentioned yet not supported, leaving the reader to wonder what is really true.
Analysis of Article The author used three various sources, US News and World Report, Stanford, and one non-profit organization, The sources used by the author do make the article seem very reliable. Both sides of the argument are represented in an unbiased way, but not many statistical facts are used to support the arguments. The article would seem more credible if actual statistics were used. Since there were no statistics stated, the validity of the article is hard to assess, as there is no real way to fact check. The information as presented can be seen as merely the opinions to both sides of the article.
Some logical fallacies presented in the article are that only children that are English Language Learners (ELL) or poverty level children benefit from being placed into charter schools but that the…...

Civil Rights V. Public Order

...the freedom to practice religion without government persecution. Public order means to function or act in a manner that is non offensive to the public. You can't incite someone to violence and you can't just shoot of your windows. Maintain public order is very important because crime is hard enough to stop as it is. With out having any type of public order there would be people committing crimes and bad things happening every second of everyday, so law enforcement would not be able to keep up with all the issues occurring. When it comes to maintaining public order, civil rights can be effected in the process. Civil rights vs. public order can become a huge problem in many areas. When this issue tends to get worse when there are national threats within our country because everybody feels like they need to take more precautions in order to be safe. For example, after 9/11 airports and any type of transportation industries became a lot stricter with screening and allow people to get on planes because of that serious security breach. This can also within communities because if something were to happen that didn't make the townspeople feel safe, then they would feel the need to be far more protective of the homeland. Then with all the extra effort to be safe, many people's right can be violated because they don't feel like they should be put in the position of being singled out and searched. To maintain public order in the airports and on the planes themselves, new rule......

Charter Schools and Traditional public schools both have a profound effect on our students in many different ways but charter schools have much more of an effective way to get our Children not only through school but also through college. A large sum of students that have attended Charter schools have gone on to college receiving a 3.0 or higher. The Impact that education in Charter schools that have a college prep program is much more effective in student success than Public school education. Charter schools are publicly funded institutions that operate under their own standards of conduct and curriculum. Although these institutions are funded by tax dollars, charter schools are ultimately given the freedom to establish their own methods of operation, similar to how private schools are able to operate their instructional and social practices. Various studies and statistics reveals that students who come from lower-income families or students that are English language learners revealed higher success and performance rates in charter schools than in public school. According to the DC fiscal policy institute, the median proficiency level at the 43 charter schools studied rose from 44.2 to 50.2 percent from 2008 to 2012, while it fell from 40.4 to 36.7 percent at the 109 public schools.

Charter Influences on Canadian Politics

...Charter Influence On Canadian Politics Ever since the Charter came into effect in 1982, it has had major impact on Canadian politics and law. The Charter allows the judicial and legislative branch to be transparent and able to be holding each other accountable. Many would argue that the charter has given court’s infinite powers and they control the legislative branch. However the courts perform a policing function for legislations to see if they violate the master law, the Charter. Therefore if the legislation branch does their “first order Charter duties” properly, which is charter proofing their laws, they will not go for review with the Supreme Court of Canada (Maclvor 138). Each branch of government has their own responsibilities to pursue and they have different resources to achieve them. For example the, the judicial branch’s responsibility is to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals where the legislation branch has to make laws to tackle down social issues (Maclvor 142). Each branch has their own resources to help them with their responsibilities, for instances the Legislative Branch have Department of Justice and Standing Committee. Both of these committees work for the government helping doing research and formulating legislations as well charter-proofing legislation so they don’t go violates the rights and freedoms of Individuals (Maclvor 142). The Charter has allowed for democratic dialogue between both branches of government, allowing for......

Project Charter

...Siddharth Mandwal ID- 1001704 Date Submitted - 10/26/2015 PROJECT CHARTER AND ITS STRUCTURE INTRODUCTION Projects have been a part of the human life for hundreds of years. They can exist for a significant amount of time, can cost a lot of money and may involve people from all departments and offices under an organization. When projects can be very complicated, small mismanagement practises might cost a lot of time and money. This requires that projects are properly managed right from the starting or even before starting the project. This requirement calls for the creation of a project charter. Although the project charter is a very important deliverable at initialization of the project, it can be defined basically as a document which officially starts or authorizes a project. It acts as a reference for the future. Any charter should roughly define the business case, scope, objectives, stakeholders and risk and responsibilities. With project management practices getting more organized and more defined, the importance of the project is now well known but, there seem to be some disputes over the structure of a project charter, when it should be created and who should be creating the project charter. This paper aims at finding these answers with the help of information available. Various proposals given by different experts are considered and each proposal is analyzed to determine what would a perfect project charter look like and when it should be created and by whom.......

Mark Koding V. Public Prosecutor

...Title and Citation Mark Koding v. Public Prosecutor [1982] 2 MLJ 120 Facts On 11 October 1978, the Accused, Mark Koding, a lawyer and member of the Dewan Rakyat made a speech in Parliament which was thought to be seditious. He was subsequently charged with committing an offence under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act. Issues 1. Whether, as a Member of Parliament (MP), the Accused’s right of free speech in Parliament, given by sections 3 and 8 of the Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) Ordinance [No. 15 of] 1952 and Article 63(2) of the 1957 Federal Constitution, has been validly limited by the subsequent amendment made to Article 63 with the addition of Clause (4) by the Constitution (Amendment) Act. 1971 (Act A30). 2. Whether the Accused’s right of free speech in Parliament is part of the Constitution’s basic structure or a fundamental rule of natural justice, thus rendering any supposed amendment of the Constitution seeking to limit such right is void and of no effect. 3. Whether the demand for closure of Chinese and Tamil schools in the process of implementing the national language can be legally and constitutionally treated as questioning Article 152(1) and thus, bringing into operation section 3(1) (f) of the Sedition Act 1948 (Revised 1969), despite there not being a demand for the abolition of prohibition of the teaching or learning of such languages. Reasoning 1. While Sections 3 and 8 of the Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers)...

Private V Public Prison

...Prisons are intended to meet a variety of social goals, including incapacitation, deterrence, discipline, punishment or retribution, and rehabilitation or reformation. Some have argued that public prisons are better at all of the above while most support private prisons. The term prison privatization commonly refers to the policy of contracting out the management and operation of prisons and jails to private, for-profit companies. Prison privatization is a controversial issue, with ongoing debate over the ethics of delegating the punishment function of the criminal justice system to private actors, weather private prisons cost less to operate than public facilities, and if the quality of security and conditions of confinement differ between public and private prisons. In 2005, approximately 200 private correctional facilities operated in the United States, housing a total of 107,000 inmates. Four companies provide more than 90 percent of private prison capacity. About 6 percent of all state inmates and 14 percent of federal inmates are incarcerated in privatized facilities. The idea of privatizing prisons emerged in the 1980s as a policy remedy to the problem of growing incarceration rates, severe prison overcrowding, and constraints on increasing government funding of new prison space. Public investment in new prisons climbed eightfold from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, but was at or approaching its limits in many jurisdictions due to voter rejection of......
