People should be required to attend parenting classes before having a child because it will provide a realistic view of all the challenges involved with parenting. Many people don't realize all the challenges that come with parenting. Guest speakers, like current parents could provide valuable insights for couples who want to have children. The parents could describe a day in the life of a parent and go through scenarios to make people think about what they do to handle difficult situations....

Should there only be school for 3 days a week

I personally believe that high school should only be 3 days a week for several reasons. First of all high school is getting us ready for college right? Well if it is the the average college student only goes for 2-3 day a week. Second teachers don't understand this especially Advanced Placement (AP) teachers. They expect since it is a college class that they should give you college work, and when you have 4 or more AP classes the homework really piles up. It is extremely stressful to the studen...

Wylted

==Definitions== Minimum wage: The minimum wage will be defined as the minimum compensation a worker will receive (from his employer) for preforming different forms of labor. The minimum wage is enforced by government laws. The current minimum wage, in the USA, is $7.25 an hour. Increase: In order to avoid semantics (for example, someone arguing it should be increased by 0.001 cents an hour), I will specify: the person who accepts must support *at least* an increase to $10 an hour. Though,...
