I will start this debate by defining the motion. By single-sex schools, I mean schools with only girls or only boys in one school. As I am done defining to motion, I will begin my arguments. 1. Distraction Children of he opposite sex can be a distraction. Especially for middle and high school students, there could be students who date each other, and this could be a big distraction for students who need to study. As you know, middle and high school is the time to study to o to a better high...

Is educating at home right? I say the right to decide on the education of your children/grandchildren is important. Contention 1: Price Sure, if you have evidence to back up your claim that homeschooling children perform better, I agree. However, what happens in high school? Do the parents continue to teach, and if the child's intended major is not his parents, what will his parents do? In elementary school and maybe middle school, homeschooling is fairly easy as most people know how to teach...

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, I, as the opposition team, am strongly oppose the motion being debated, 'Should teenagers be allowed to have smart phones?' and have 3 arguments that opposes the motion. The first one is Addiction, the second one is Inappropriate content, and the third one is Distraction. Before I get into my arguments, I would like to define the motion. I would like to define teenagers as children from the age of 12 to 17, and smart phones as a mobile phone with an advanced mobile o...

Examinations should be banned

Darren.K

Exams definitely should not be banned. " The affirmative side said that exams are only a snapshot in time, and that if people remember an answer after a test, then that could stop them from getting the results they desired. Clearly, this is incorrect because if they cannot remember an answer during the exam, then they did not study it enough for it to be permanently existent in their minds, and maybe they do not deserve the results they desired. " The affirmative team also said that exams bring...

Was truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on hiroshima and nagasaki right

csnyder1084
Ncunningham4538

i think that truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb was a good decision because this put us on the top of the world when it came to military power. It is also a good decision because it stopped the war in its tracks. Then this caused us to create a treaty taking away japan's military making them the current leading economic power in the world....

We should reduce homework

Dawson7

Thank you for joining my debate:D I think that we should reduce homework because school work should only be at school. When you get home you should be able to rest. There are already eight ours of school, and a lot of people are also in after school activities which could take up to two-four hours after school. When you get home, you will most likely have to do some home-chores before or after your homework too. Not only does homework take up a lot of time off your day, but it also causes stre...

Should the study of classic literature be required?

DStallman
S.S_NZ

While the study of classic literature does have its merits and, indeed, is one of my personal favorite subjects of study throughout my education, it should not be required for all students. Art history, music appreciation, and other such classes that focus on particular art forms in a historical and analytical format can be beneficial and enjoyable for students, but they are not required. While language classes are a definite necessity given their application in most if not all professions,...
