School safety issues continue to intensify in today’s schools. In addition to ensuring that the building and surrounding areas are safe for everyone on the school campus, the principal must understand his or her authority in disciplining students involved in on- and off-campus activities such as gangs, cyberbullying, disruptive students, sexting, violence, etc.

Now imagine if that happens in real-life; how far does it influence the lives of everybody? This actually did happen in the Gilded Age (1870 – 1900). Mark Twain came up with the term “The Gilded Age” for two reasons. First, the corruption in business and government regarding the low pay and long hours. Second, the distribution of wealth was concentrated in the hands of a few industrialists. After the American Civil War in the United States when John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford, also known as the Captains of Industry had control on the economics and politics all over the nation with their power and monopolies. Their employees were also dependent on these monopolies for jobs. Although some people would say that monopolies do not have a big influence or effect on politics and economics in today’s age as it was in the Gilded Age because there are many huge businesses and companies all over the world, which many think results in less chances for the growth of a monopoly today; this is not the case because companies can develop a monopoly and beat other businesses down and set the wages and prices as low as they wish to effect the economics or the politics, just like the presidential election in 1896 between McKinley and Bryan. Monopolies have a huge influence on politics, back in the 19th century. In the Gilded Age, monopolies played a big role, so big, that they also affect the outcome of a presidential election, because their campaign was influencing the workers and so the current voters. For instance, in the Gilded Age when the presidential election between Democrat William J. Bryan and Republican William McKinley occurred. American historian and professor at the University of Chicago and University of Rochester Bernard A. Weisberger states in his article “Election in Silver and Gold” that this election in 1896 was “one of the hardest-fought campaigns ever” (Weisberger, 1) because the campaign took place during and after an economic depression, also known as the Panic of 1893. But also, because the campaigns or included business, economic, wages, employers and employees. The business men Carnegie, Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan used money and corruption and financed a lot so McKinley could win the election. This election was really very important for these rich men because the democrats and its nominee Bryan were completely against these big companies and businesses. They wanted to stop them what meant an end for all monopolies. Republican McKinley was on the side of the businesses. At the very beginning everybody thought that Bryan would win for sure. But the republican’s campaign changed everything. Since most of the employees were working for the big companies of Rockefeller and his fellow colleagues, they said that if Bryan wins the election and becomes president, all the employees do not have to come to work anymore the next day. The reason was easy: If Bryan closes all the companies there will be no jobs anymore. So as an employee and voter they got to think about their families and would rather vote for Republican McKinley to keep their jobs and incomes. This actually worked >GET ANSWER
