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...

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!...

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...

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I think exams are outdated and ineffective.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,...

Erato
InterrogatorMaster

A lot of people, specially teachers, believe that tests are necessary just to see their students' progress at different topics.Then why are students so anxious about having a test if it is not that big deal?Let me explain you why. Albert Einstein once said: 'Everybody's a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.'That is what our schools does, they are judging every student the same withou...

Should "flash passes" be used in schools?

ShortPeopleUnite
Smartwalias

A "flash pass" is a pass that can be used for students with anxiety. When the student is in a particularly triggering situation, the student can show the pass to the teacher and leave class, generally to go to the counseling office or the library. These passes can be used to avoid anxiety attacks in school, and the student is given the liberty to know what to do with their situation. This pass can also be added to schools along with more mental health awareness so that teachers know more about w...
