Should high school and middle school students be able to use phones at passing time and at lunch.

I think that students should be allowed to use phones at passing time and lunch. Passing time and lunch are really the only free time that students get at school, so why not do what you would like to do during that time. Being on electronic devices at lunch can also relax and calm your brain that the school work that you have previously been doing....

Should we receive less homework?

ss12
BearWithMe

Adolescents in schools should not receive even less homework. Having an average amount of homework is sufficient for encouraging academic work. If students receive less homework, they will be used to not having as much discipline. They will become lazy. In addition, having homework maintains a steady focus for keeping up with lessons and the curriculum taught in class. If not tasked with homework, we can forget what we learned in class, resulting in a less productive class the following day b...

Gym should not be required for high school students.

I'll admit, i am not an active person because of many medical reasons. I've tried to be active and still try to this day. Although physical education is healthy for teenagers, not all teenagers can participate in physical education. Our gym participation gets grades by how much we participate in that class. If and when our participation isn't the best, or when don't "dress out" our grades suffer. That grade can ruin a GPA of a honors/AP student just because of gym. If gym is required, then an ar...

A smarter way to communicate with your toddler is thru sign

A child should be taught baby sign language in order to increase their motor and auditory skills at young age. Kids that have been taught baby sign seem to have better motor and auditory skills then those kids who don't know how to sign. Signing is a great way to communicate with your child and teach them a way to talk to you with their hands while they learn to talk. Signing has been shown to decrease...

The Greek System Should be Removed From College Campuses

Espera

The Greek System, present on college campuses around the nation, is deeply flawed. Although many young men and women have found solace in these Greek communities, these organizations do more harm than good. Lets talk about a few of the problems that plague this system (most applicable to both sororities and fraternities): 1. Discrimination/Elitism: It's becoming increasingly apparent that these organizations discriminate by race, appearance, ethnicity, class, and obviously, gender. I'm sure you...

I will argue why Mathematicians are silly, while my opponent (Con) will defend their intelligence. Definition of silly: lacking common sense or judgement Here are just some reasons why I believe they are silly: 1. Mathematicians believe that 1 2 3 4 ...(to infinity) = -1/12 2. Mathematicians believe the repeating decimal 0.999... = exactly 1 3. Mathematicians believe there are 360 degrees in a circle 4. Mathematicians believe there just as many even numbers as there are natural nu...

Should classrooms have class pets?

Lumberjay85

Classes should have class pets because taking care of one will teach responsibility, respect for living animals, and give a sense of interdependence. If the pet dies the events and mourning that come after will teach the children life and the life cycle. The pet could also be example for learning that would make it fun to learn....
