Should schools conduct random drug testing?

Hello, I believe that drug testing in schools should not be allowed to occur. In a national study by the University of Chicago, 76,000 students were surveyed and there was no correlation between the drug use of students that went to schools that conducted drug testing and those that did not. Based on this study and many many more, drug testing is simply not an efficient deterrent. Next, drug testing is inaccurate. Based on several statistics, (that I will name if necessary), drug tests can bri...

Should schools make homework optional?

I think schools should because some students don't need homework. When I was in school I never did homework, but still passed all my tests. The only bad grades I got were on homework. That is my argument for why schools should make homework optional....

Should schools be able to ban certain books?

becboo1010

Schools should NOT be able to ban books. Banning books goes against our first amendment: freedom of expression. I feel as though librarians and teachers should be able to use common sense and not add certain books to the library/class in the first place, but once the book is there, it should be there for good. Parents should also monitor what their children are reading, but they shouldn't have the power to ban it from everyone. Book banning promotes the idea that one person's opinion is the only...

Open Campus Lunch

JAD13
Mia13

Students should be allowed to leave school for lunch. They should be able to leave school grounds because it gives students a sense of trust and responsibility. For example if a kid were buying lunch at a sandwich shop and had the choice between a bag of Cheetos or a vege sandwich. In this moment he is making a choice if he chooses the healthier option it proves that he is making a responsible choice for his body....
