Contention 2: Safety There are two reasons why reasonable suspicion creates a safer environment for students. First, imminent threat. In the status quo, teachers are able to search with reasonable suspicion, or a hunch that illicit activity has happened or might happen. In a world with probable cause teachers will not be able to respond to an imminent threat when known in advance. → AT are exception that danger cannot be prevented by pc bc you will not know if they will actually do it Because our case revolves around the idea of providing students with a safe school environment, reasonable suspicion should be preferred due to the fact that teachers should be able to act swiftly to potentially save lives. The second, being the responsibility of the Burden of Proof According to Newman of the University of Chicago in 2006, The optimal allocation of the burden of proof in a lawsuit places the burden of proof on the defendant(teacher) to provide evidence for probable cause for the arrest. This is why an article published by Education World on June 28 of 2016 explains: “A recent Harris Interactive survey conducted for the organization Common Good revealed that 82 percent of teachers say the current legal climate has changed the way they work. More than 60 percent of principals surveyed said they had been threatened with a legal challenge.”

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
