Should Students get paid for good grades?

Students should get paid for having good grades because for them it is a full time job. You can't expect a child to go to school for 8 hours have a 2 hour practice get homework done sleep AND have a job. It is physically impossible....

Should cell phones be permitted in school

Hamlind

I believe cell phones should be permitted in school because students could use them for educational purposes, to ward off boredom during free periods, and for safety. With the variety of educational apps available, technology in the classroom is an effective teaching/learning tool. Most students carry their cell phones anyway. Why not utilize them within the classroom learning environment positively. Many school districts do not have the funds available to provided computers or tablets for e...

I think students should have year round schooling because if we have year round schooling than we learn even more. Lots of kids forget a lot of stuff over the summer. If we have year round schooling we would have three, one month vacations....

Should LETTER grades be abolished?

Thunderbird
MasterJoseph97

I say that grades should be removed. I say this because of the stress that it can put on a student. Not only stress but pressure, lowers self-esteem, and can rarely but possibly lead to suicide. As everyone knows letter grades range from A-F/ good to bad. When a student starts to get bad grades, it can really start to hurt them. I don't mean physically but mentally. How? Well, lets say you live far away from your job, the only job you've been able to get, and your close to getting fired because...

Should students be able to listen to music with limitations in school

banana1234
bman7720

YES!!! It has been scientifically proved, multiple times, that students benefit from listening to music while studying. The limits within the school would allow teachers to decide when students are able to listen to music and when they can't. If other students would rather not listen to music because it distracts them, so be it. It is a free world!!! http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130509/submitted/130509837/...
