Should Schools be required to have a magical rainbow slide leading down from their highest building?

Just for fun. :) I'm interested. I believe that schools should be required to have this. School environments are too strict these days and are also too academically straining for students at times. Students being able to have a brake on this magical rainbow slide could be appropriate for relaxing them and preparing/refreshing them for further classes....

Solomon77

I speak against the motion that mobile phone shouldn't be encourage in school by students. A mobile phone is a wireless handheld device that allows users to make calls and send text messages, among other features . To set the ball rolling, I would like to note that I am not arguing against faculty, teachers, or staff having or using cellphones, if the need arises, nor against students possessing cellphones in their lockers for use after hours or in emergencies. All key words are assum...

Secondary school students should be allowed laptops at school.

Secondary school students should be allowed laptops. It will benefit them in many ways; one of which is that it makes their high school lives so much more convenient. It is easier to be organised if you have a laptop with you; instead of hurriedly searching for missing notes or lost pages in a textbook or lined paper, you can simply save the file on your laptop, and never lose it again. Laptops are great for saving paper; a major issue in modern society, because as we all know, paper origina...

There are 360 degrees in a circle

It appears people have accepted there are 360 degrees in a circle solely because the Babylonians believed this. I am hoping to find an opponent who can convince me that there are in fact 360 degrees in a circle I will begin: A straight angle has 180 degrees, therefore:There are 180 degrees in a 3 sided shape (triangle) because the sum of it's interior angles equal 180There are 360 degrees in a 4 sided shape (square) b...

Students should wear school uniforms.

I did some research on Patch.com and 50% of kids get bullied because of their clothes. Students want to wear what they want but it's only for a few hours and it's not going to kill you. Various People around the world kill themselves because of bullying. I know parents rather have their kids not where what they want for less causes of bullying. Students crying every day and night and we will put a stop to it if we have school uniforms. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -...

Homework should be optional in schools

maryr0831

Homework should be optional for students to complete in school. Homework, although useful for practicing the skills taught in class, has been shown to cause depression, stress (1), and even physical problems such as migraines, stomach problems, weight loss, and sleep deprivation (2). In a study conducted by a Stanford researcher involving high school students who lived in upper-middle class communities, 56% of the students considered homework a primary source of stress (3). In most schools, home...
