Do schools meet the demands of Society?

Many people believe that school should not only train children academically, but also prepare them for all aspects of their adult life - work, leisure, personal relations, creative activities, coping with money matters, independence, parenthood, etc. Thus, the main object of going to school is preparation for after life; an average school-leaver is presupposed to be already equipped with all basic values, notions and conceptions that would allow him/her to build the life successfully....

Faculty and Staff of schools should not be allowed to conceal carry a firearm in any US state.

Hoping to have a friendly debate to sharpen myself and my opponent. The Pro/Aff will argue that Faculty and staff of schools (As in all public schools) should not be allowed to conceal carry a firearm. First round will be accepting the debate, 2nd is our arguments, 3rd is rebuttal, and 4th is final thoughts, and hopefully admitting where we were wrong and what we learned. Forgive me if I am missing something as this is one of my first debates. Thank you!...

should schools offer sign language in addition to foreign languages?

"Hi,where can I find the restroom?" This simple sentence might be something non complex to ask or answer however for someone who is deaf it is very difficult to ask this simple question. Communication is an important aspect of our lives, without it we wouldn't be able to send or receive information. Schools see the importance of this but many just offer language studies in Spanish,French,German, and Mandarin Chinese. Most will think isn't that enough? Well most schools leave out a part of our po...

Should schools teach mythology?

DayDayJones87
Okaydoka

I am currently writing a report on the subject for my school that does not currently have a course on mythology. We learn about it some in classes like "Cultural Geography" when we are talking about Greece or Rome or something like that, but other wise all my knowledge about mythology is from library books and the internet. I would love some incite on the matter from an older person (i.e. a graduate). First round acceptance round, other two for debating I look forward to debating with you!...

Should exams be allowed in schools?

I think exams are outdated and ineffective. We as students have suffered so much to revise and memorise all these texts and information- but to what cause? To put them all down on paper, just to forget them the next day, or if you're unlucky, within the next few hours. The teachers claim that the purpose of exams are to test one's ability, but there really isn't any "testing" because everyone would be putting down the same answers. Of course, there will be some people who do better than others,...

Should children be home schooled instead of going to public school?

ryu77
Deondrase

I believe that children should be home schooled instead of going to public school because I feel that public school doesn't teach all of the basic life skills that are needed to thrive in the world. Home schooling I believe is unbiased and anything can be taught to the children by the home schooling instructor, including academics, life skills, and skills for worst-case scenarios. Public schooling I believe is biased because it mainly only focuses on academics, and it skips over basic life whats...

Gender equality

OlyaR
Debate_and_conquer

Nowadays, the term gender equality is widely used, but I think that sometimes people can mixed it up with the term equality of rights. In my opinion, gender equality is one of the most important aspects of life, where women and men receive equal opportunities and responsibilities in various spheres of life. Can we achieve gender equality in our everyday life? Let"s try to puzzle it out. First of all, let"s analyze the description of gender equality, men and women should have equal opportunities...
