Humanities vs STEM

Humanities
cottrill

I am going to argue that Humanities is better than STEM! Humanities is a combination of Language Arts and Social Studies. Language arts is reading and writing. Social studies is the study of people and cultures. What 2 things do you do every single day? You read and you deal with people. You cannot go get through a day without having done either. When you ride down the road you read the signs on restuaurants; McDonalds, Subway, etc.. When you get up in the morning you speak to your mom, dad,...

Are Same-Sex schools better for education?

AveyC
Bogcha

Hello. I do not think same-sex schools are better for education because in order for the world to go-round it takes people of different ages, genders, and races and schools are a good way to start to introduce children to this. Especially when it comes to group work all different genders call for a great group. You are basically restricting girls to only have girls as friends and boys to only have boys as friends....

Should Technology be allowed in school??

I think that technology should be allowed in school for many reasons. One being that technology is a lot better then a textbook. Technology has 100X more information then 10 different textbooks. Technology wont hurt your back when its in your backpack because it doesn't weigh a ton. Technology is not only better for education but for your health too. Unlike textbooks, computers have many many many different sources to use rather then just one. Technology might also give you information that...

"There aren't 360 Degrees in a Circle"

mostlogical
Biodome

I agree with the statement: "there aren't 360 degrees in a circle". It may be that we chose 360 because it's close to the number of days it takes Earth to orbit the Sun, but it's more likely because the Babylonians chose to divide a circle by 360 degrees. But the Babylonians couldn't even calculate Pi to more than 2 decimals places! Whatever the reason, it seems we have accepted a circle has 360 degrees on pure faith, as no-one seems to know why a circle has 360 degrees to this day. My op...

I am arguing that education discourages creativity.Education is defined as "the knowledge, skill, and understanding that you get from attending a school, college, or university"Discourage is defined as "to make (something) less likely to happen"Creativity is defined as "the ability to make new things or think of new ideas"http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary...

Should schools teach ww1 and ww2 from both perspectives (German and axis powers and allied)

waffenss
TheSatiricalAnarchist

Yes it is important for the school system to tell the story of the German and axis powers to show that not all nazis were bad along with axis power soldiers. History was written by the victors and there story is told over and over again. There barly any cases of a history teacher teaching the world wars from the axis powers point of view....

Should Children be allowed to sleep in class.

supercalifragilistic
Alexander_G

Everybody should know how early school starts, too early. We've probably all experienced wanting to fall asleep in class, so why should't we be able to? Kids should be able to take naps during lessons. Example if your teacher is teaching about fraction (bleh) you should be able to sleep and not have to listen to the useless stuff. Or you stayed up till 1:00 and can barely focus now, we should be able to catch up on sleep! WHOS WITH ME!...
