... of appropriate discipline in the operation of the school” or speech which officials forecast will have such an effect. But in 1983, Hazelwood East, a St. Louis high school, produced an in-depth spread covering divorce, sex and teen pregnancy. Before the newspaper ran, the principal called for prior review and censored the entire section. Leslie Smart and two other students took their school district to court.

The decision upheld the right of public high school administrators at Hazelwood East High School in subrban St. Luois, Mo., to censor stories concerning teen pregnancy and the effects of divorce on children from a school-sponsored student newspaper. The Court found the censorship of the article justified on the basis of the principal’s judgment that (1) “the [pregnant] students’ anonymity was not adequately protected ... and (2) the judgment that “the article was not sufficiently sensitive to the privacy interests of the students' boyfriends and parents . . . .” (Hazelwood 274). Similarly, the Court finds in the principal’s decision to censor the divorce article a journalistic lesson that the author should have given the father of one student an “opportunity to defend himself” against her charge that (in the Court's words) he “chose ‘playing cards with ...

115: Rattle Bone
... Brown is involved at the beginning and towards the end of the book. Ms. Brown became an important part of Irene s life, not only by being one of the main reasons for her parents divorce, but also by helping Irene accomplish one of her goals. The time that occurred between these two events in the book connects Rattlebone and is a very good use of foreshadowing. Another example of Clair s use of this writing method is the experience of the divorce between Irene s parents. This long-term process displayed Irene s parents as being unforgiving. At first his wife forgives James Wilson for the affair that he enjoyed with October Brown, but after a period ... nor make up with the other. This example again shows the use of foreshadowing by Clair by evolving the event over several chapters with different narrators.

Another side of the story comes from October Brown s landlord, Mrs. Pemberton. Mrs. Pemberton wants nothing ...

From his wife s point of view he was a cheater and awful person, because he once started talking with some pretty girl in restaurant where his wife ... house. Again logic suggests that men are the cause for most of the problems between couples. Because they chose to live a life that they like, they get back what they might not expect, a divorce. One more reason that contributes to the causes for break ups is that most of the time man forget important occasions. A special gift or a bouquet of roses is the hope of a girl ... special day. This sole reason makes women mad at their husbands and boyfriends. Their carelessness makes women think that they are unimportant to their men. This little detail in marriage makes a footstep towards a divorce. Not realizing what it means for a woman to get attention, men keep ignoring many aspects of relationship including the special days which mean everything to women. A friend of mine, Tony, had a ...
117: Demographic Trends And Implica
... Poussaint 4). Another reason given for the current trend is an increasing social and economical independence among women (Hollander 23). A third reason for the current trend is the increase in the chance of a divorce for those that are getting married. A married woman in 1990 that was between the age of 20-34 had about a 19.6 percent chance that her marriage would end in divorce. The projection for the same age group is that within 15 years, the percentage among the same age group of women will be around 40 percent (Russell 211). So, the current popular saying of half of marriages end in divorce is slowly becoming true. The demographic trend toward single-parent households is clear and definite. The history and projections show that the trend will not disappear, but will become more evident. Implications: As the ...

Getting a divorce was not a very common thing to do. Most women endured the pain and troubles of being physically and mentally abused everyday. A number of women were too poor to get a divorce or even runaway from their husbands. Husbands of these times supported the family and were the only ones who had a job in the family.
