CRITICAL THINKING QUESTIONS
1. Do you agree that incarceration is a better method of correction than corporal punishment? Why or why not? No I don’t agree with that statement because if criminals have already life in prison there is no point of having incarceration because they will be in there till they are passed away. 2. How are school rules similar to state and federal laws? What would the typical American high school be like if there were no rules or consequences for breaking them? Explain. It’s very similar because if you get in trouble you get a consequence. You get in a major trouble you get suspended.
An normal American high school without no rules will be very disturbing and very bad It would have had got out of control and someone can get hurt…or it can be a big situation. Anything can happen in school, people get mean and mad and angry…Fighting…etc. school needs rules! 3. Do criminals benefit more from community service or house arrest? Explain. I believe criminals benefit more from house arrest they get more time to think about what they have done. Community service you do what they tell you for like 4-5 hours and then go on with your day and mostly continue what you do.
