Answers

I personally do because some people are actually insane if they think that killing someone is OK.

Answer:

I think people should be allowed to plead insanity, but to do so they need to have psych evaluations to determine whether that is true or not, and if it isn’t, they should then have the crime of lying in court against them as well.

The correct answer is the third option: if allowed to continue, tax evasion was a serious offense. Tax evasion means not paying your taxes, which, during Thoreau's time, resulted in going to jail. This punishment reflects the idea that tax evasion is a serious offense and that offenders should be treated as criminals. Despite these consequences, Thoreau used tax evasion as a form of civil disobedience. For example, he refused to pay his poll tax during the Mexican War as a way to protest the slavery that was still occurring in the United States. Due to his tax evasion, he went to jail until the poll tax was paid.

Please!!!!! Are KIPP students different from other public school students? discuss the qualities that KIPP students possess and how their circumstances distinguish them from other students.

Answers

There is a report that say that KIPP students experience greater learning gains in maths, reading, science and social studies than their peers in traditional public schools.

KIPP refers to the Knowledge is Power Program. This is a network of college and preparatory schools that are found in low income communities all over the United States. These schools are free, and represent the largest network of public charter schools.

KIPP students have some qualities that distinguish them from other students. These students tend to come from inner-cities and from low-income families. Therefore, they usually do not have as many advantages as students in other schools. Another quality that they have is the fact that KIPP students are some of the highest-performing students in their communities.
