Teachers vs. Students point of view

Teachers Point of View
these are all great. One thing missing would be that it has a what if section. What is something inappropriate poped up of if you were being threatened etc.. If is was more spread out and easier to find. For all policies to be easier to find.


Student Point of View -
These are explainable rules but do you really have to be watching my every move? Can’t i have any privacy?

Best Policy and why? How could it be changed?

What is the best policy and why? -
The best policy out of all of these would be IISD because is more explainable. It is also easier to read and understand. It has categories that explain more deeply.

How would you change the policy to make it even better? -
i would make it easier to find and i wouldn't repeat many of the cant and can do’s. I would let the students use it more freely.Other than that i think it was the best out of all of them.
