High School Curriculum Should Be Changed

heatherash
Oliark

I will not argue that it is important for individuals to be knowledgeable in subjects such as math, science, history, etc. However, I do not believe that school teaches you what you REALLY need to know to survive in the world. Yes there are classes that one can CHOOSE to take to learn things such as accounting, however it is not mandatory. (Furthermore, do you really believe that a teenager is going to WILLINGLY take a financing class, or a politics class?) There are classes that I find to be...

Should the U.S. public school system get rid of standardized learning plans? (Common Core)

yes they should. The schools should find each persons strengths, and then put them on in full pursuit of a career that they would be skilled at and would enjoy.

Parents should be fined if their children are unsuccessful at school

Parents should be fined if their children are unsuccessful because the fine could lead to more special classes that will help the students. As in school, education is #1 priority and it is just doing what it is right for the next generation, to educate. Education is important for anyone and it is just a bit pricey but a very effective way to help those who are in need (I had to make a new one)...

Should High Schools Give Students Tests For Depression And Anxiety?

RinClaygamine
BLAHthedebator

As a freshman with social media, I see many of my friends go through depression over the very place that should them an education and make them feel secure. Some of these friends are now dead, others hospitalized for attempted suicide. Why? Because parents aren't told everything that goes on within these buildings. Teachers put down students for being unintelligent, and students just harass one another. This can get very serious, and that's one way to have caused anxiety and depression in studen...

I believe that schools should serve healthier lunches for many reasons. One obvious reason is the fact that obesity is becoming quite common and school lunches are contributing a big part to that. Con will argue that school lunches are fine and that schools shouldn't serve healthier lunches....
