Opposing Viewpoints Exercise
Sanctuary cities are sensible solutions to immigration problem since the police do not enforce immigration regulations against illegal people living in the country. However, the police enforce all other criminal rules in the country.
The reason why sanctuary cities are important they establish an excellent relationship between the law enforcement officers and the undocumented immigrants (Villazor 573). In sanctuary cities, the immigrants have to call the police without worrying that they will be deported back to their home country.
However, sanctuary cities are viewed to be a major cause of crimes and human trafficking. Sanctuary cities threaten public safety for they harbor criminals hence establishing a dangerous living environment for the citizens (Chen 13).
The viewpoint that sanctuary cities threaten citizens’ safety is invalid. Sanctuary cities operate under policies that are protected by the 10th amendment hence should remain legalized.
The control of information through media outlets suppression such as news publications, books, movies, and media outlets violates education and business growth.
Since all information is censored, the information offered to the public is perceived to be relevant and true by default. People are denied the right to access secondary sources of information in which they may raise their opinions (Koolstra et al 350). Also, audience rights of accessing information are violated.
On the other side, the supporters of censorship argue that it prevents the rapid dissemination and spreading of inaccurate and misleading information to the target audience. Also, they argue that censorship hinders the spreading of immoral content to children (Sather n.d).
Censorship should be discouraged given that it denies people access to information that they consider necessary in forming the right opinions. Further, censorship’s ability to hinder creativity needs to be stopped in order to allow people to enjoy their right of access to information.
Importance of Arts Education in a technological age
In today’s technological age, arts education plays very important roles in developing students creativity and innovation skills applicable in the subjects of engineering, mathematics, and science.
Students benefit from arts education and acquire flexibility and adaptability skills that help them cope and adjust their brains with technological advances. The application of technology in art enables students to engage in visual and performing arts at all levels of academics competently (Benjamin n.d). Educators guide learners on how to apply technology in developing artistic skills.
On the other side, some schools still value the traditional methods of art education in which the educator teaches the students on board on how art can benefit them in future. Educators guide the students in the classroom in the ways of exploring, creating and expressing their artistic ideas through music, performance, and art (Collins, Allan, and Richard Halverson 20).
The idea to adopt traditional art education by some educators is invalid given the technological age that the world has brought the education industry. For students to be competitive in arts, they must be guided visually by technology.
The Glass Ceiling
Despite the increased number of women in the workplace, the number of women in top leadership positions in the workplace remains to be low.
There are intangible barriers that hinder women from securing upper-level management positions in companies. The corporate world has been discriminative on women’s desire to advance their leadership skills by leading bid companies (Wirth n.d). Women hit “glass ceiling” which kills their desire to reach top management positions.
However, research shows that the number of women in the office has increased and that they are securing more management positions within companies’ top leadership. The corporate world has been transparent in hiring processes when top management positions are advertised (Cook, Alison, and Christy Glass 1085).
The notion that women are not prevented by “glass ceiling” from reaching top management positions is untrue. The fact remains to be that most top leadership positions in companies are owned by men as compared to the number of women. Glass ceiling is disadvantaging women in the workplace.
