Should cell phones be permitted in school

Hamlind

I believe cell phones should be permitted in school because students could use them for educational purposes, to ward off boredom during free periods, and for safety. With the variety of educational apps available, technology in the classroom is an effective teaching/learning tool. Most students carry their cell phones anyway. Why not utilize them within the classroom learning environment positively. Many school districts do not have the funds available to provided computers or tablets for e...

Teachers should have their students go to the restroom.

"Mrs. Yates? Can I go to the restroom? It's an emergency!" "No. You have like 5 minutes to get to class, you could've went to the restroom". "5 minutes isn't enough". "Yes it is!" Most students have dealt with this at least once every day in school. Drank too much water and KABLAM! They need to go down to Bathroom Lane, asap. But that isn't an option. Teachers won't allow students to go because either they had "5 minutes before class" or "you can hold it". Which isn't a good thing to do....

Should The Curriculum Change Often?

TEEMO877

I think the curriculum should not change because the curriculum is already changing a lot and I have been doing research and I found out that If a 3rd grader in 2015 when he is in 6th grade, he would be doing a 9th grade curriculum if the curriculum kept changing at this rate. So I think that the curriculum should stop changing and should be the correct curriculum for that grade....

Students should get paid for having good grades because for them it is a full time job. You can't expect a child to go to school for 8 hours have a 2 hour practice get homework done sleep AND have a job. It is physically impossible....

Should LETTER grades be abolished?

Thunderbird
MasterJoseph97

I say that grades should be removed. I say this because of the stress that it can put on a student. Not only stress but pressure, lowers self-esteem, and can rarely but possibly lead to suicide. As everyone knows letter grades range from A-F/ good to bad. When a student starts to get bad grades, it can really start to hurt them. I don't mean physically but mentally. How? Well, lets say you live far away from your job, the only job you've been able to get, and your close to getting fired because...

Exams should be changed for the better

Hello everybody I believe very strongly that GCSE&GCE awards in the UK should not be based off exams as you may know what to put but have the wrong exam technique and fail the exam all together. I think that many people would agree that while exams do test knowledge they should be based purely off knowledge of the course and not require any technique to actually sit the exams to begin with. (Your Turn Argue cons)...
