Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Contemporary Educational Issue. It needs to be at least 1250 words. This paper aims at exploring a current education issue where the biblical principles conflict with social and legal expectations. The situation will be summarized, after which the legal stance and the presumed social expectations will be discussed. The expected benefits and impacts of the value system used will be outlined, and there will also be an exploration of the conflict as well as the action or decision that would result in case a spiritual compass was not taken. The related aspects of the issue under discussion will be discussed as witnessed in the educational institution.

As far as student safety and conduct are concerned, legislators and educators are currently imposing the zero-tolerance philosophy and attitude in reaction to the violence threat in schools. In educational institutions, there is usually the use of parent conferences as well as detentions in a bid to manage the incidences (Gorman & Pauken, 2003). However, the zero-tolerance policies are currently being used to manage the violence incidences via police involvement and suspensions. The shift has been as a result of the recent violent actions that have become prevalent in educational settings during the previous few years in addition to the zero-tolerance warrant. A majority of the people would agree that using detentions and parent conferences is the ethical and spiritual approach. This is because the actual reasons that led to violence can be assessed and used to make plans on how violence can be addressed in a caring environment. This can go a long way in ensuring that the violence incidences are not repeated. On the other hand, using police involvement and suspensions may prevent the violence from being solved amicably since the tense environment surrounding these measures might make the students to be viewed as criminals.

This is regardless of how minor the offence might be, which means that all offenders are treated equally. These policies commenced with state and federal drug enforcement agencies during the early 1980s. They became well known by 1988. All along, the policies have evoked immense controversy. .
