Should creative subjects be an important part of the school curriculum?R32;

anastasiakolosovskaya

To begin with, I would like to note that one of the most acute problems facing modern educational systems is that creative subjects such as art, music, dance and drama, once an integral part of the curriculum, are losing their status in favor of more academic, more obviously "commercially useful" subjects. Creativity is being squeezed out by the government"s pressure to reach SATs targets and climb league tables. As a result, students" talents go unspotted. Moreover, children are left without an...

How to deal with a reading epidemic?

Olya_N

It's not a secret, that nowdays students' habit to read books is steadily declining. Students tend to have reading comprehension difficulties and they lack enthusiasm to read. From my point of view, more attention should be payd to this problem. Teachers should make students read more and inculcate their interest in reading. I would offer spesial school programm with creative approach, so that it would be not only theoretical. Students must be able to compare and explain what they have read. I t...

Is Homework Useful?

Homework is very useful although it is very time consuming. Homework makes sure you understand what is being taught in class. We have so much information in our brain so if we only hear it once it might go in one ear and come out the other. Homework also makes sure we don't forget something. If we learn it once and class and don't practice it we might fail our classes. So really we should all be thanking homework instead....

Should Hats Be Banned In School??

Why should hats be banned? It makes no sense. I mean, how do hats affect education and learning? And if people cant see over the hats, put the person in the back of the class. If the hat distracts people, put them in the back of the class. Most people enjoy wearing hats, take me for example, I was wearing a hat in class and the teacher said to take the hat off. I asked why and she said it was a school rule. Why should this be a rule??...

Who is responsible for poor English, Students or Parents

From my opinion , fault are on students because they are going to school, not their parents. Parents only teach them the moral values , they cant come to school with them and study with them. In past the education system were not good so parents at that time didnt have much knowledge but its time for their generation to improve it. but they didnt want it to. then the fault is on who...

should schools ban cell phones

Some kids need to text or contact parents for something important things like health and if they need to come get them. Some teachers feel more comfortable contacting their children on their own phone instead of the school phone. That's what I think, I hope that you agree thank you for reading.It gives students ways to communicate with their parents in emergencies and can help them with education e.g. if the school has limited technology or they need to take a photo of their homework. Also, phon...

School Uniforms are unnecessary

DivaExcel
Idprefertoremainanonymous

School uniforms could be annoying due to the way they are designed but most of them, if not all, are designed to advertise the school. School uniforms are also a means of identification and it saves time for the students who wouldn't have to wake up every morning to start bothering themselves about what to wear....
