Do Schools focus more on Grades (Pro) or Intelligence (Con)

AdamBabs
Dark_Soul

I believe that Schools focus too heavily on what your grade is rather than what you are learning. Currently, schools are pressuring student on keeping their grades up. Sure having good grades is good, but in some cases they don't measure your knowledge. You can really understand a subject and know exactly what the material is, but none of that matters because you didn't turn in one homework assignment and that brought your grade down 1%. According to schools, that's the end of the world. Now you...

Should all babies be called by gender neutral titles and be allowed to choose a gender?

GhostHeart22

I believe that babies should be called by gender neutral pronouns until they decide they want to be identified as a boy or a girl or remain neutral. I think that in a system like this there would be less stigma around being gay, transgender, or queer. This, in my eyes, would reduce bullying and allow for more acceptance of people of different sexual orientations....

Animals should be held captive in zoos because as long as they are being held in a good and safe environment then zoos give a good designated place where people can see cool and rare animals....

Could the American Revolution been avoided or not?

The American Revolution could have not been avoided because after the colonists came to the "New World", sooner or later, they would have had to told the British government that they wanted their freedom and if that hadn't happened, then we would still be taxed by Great Britain, like the "Car Act", etc....

Is suicide an act of selfishness or cowardice?

jade.how

Suicide is a touchy subject, and my opinion is most likely an uncommon one. However, i feel like it needs to be addressed. Is suicide an act of selfishness or cowardice? I believe suicide is driven by selfishness. People consider their lives so miserable and not worth living, and it drives them to the "only option out", suicide. This, I believe is where the problem lies. Suicide isn't the only option, I can think of 20 other options off the top of my head. People contemplating suicide think of e...

All Else Being the Same, a Moral Position in War is Untenable

Jingle_Bombs

Many people are of the opinion that there is such a thing as a "just war" or a war where a nation's moral fibre remains intact. What this debate is meant to demonstrate is either:1) The cost of moral fibre2) That if we were to ever fight an enemy whose tactical and strategic position was equal to ours, the first casualty of war will be morality.This debate is impossible to accept. If you would like to argue CON, plea...

Buddhism (Pro) or Christianity (Con)

Pase66
CultLeader34

The debate is simple enough. Which religion, of the two, is more relevant in our present day 21st century, first world society. Which one offers more truth, and which one is "better" (I left the word open to interpretation, as it will be up to the voters, based on the arguments that both sides give, to decide which one is better in their own terms). Definition of Truth: the quality or state of being true http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/truth Definition of True: agreeing with the fac...

Is dancing a sport?

Ellesha
brobot817

A sport is defined as an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. Dance is a beautiful thing that many children get involved in from a young age to learn different values and morals that are used all throughout life, and is also an activity that people can get involved in to keep fit and healthy. So to me, for someone to say that dancing is not a sport is completely and utterly ridiculous! It is appallin...
