Coeducational schools are better than single-sex ones

AlinaKolesneva

I think, that coeducational schools are better than single-sex ones, because they provide more ideal "preparation for life". And to prove my point of view, I should say, that only few educators are formally trained to use gender-specific teaching techniques. Students in single-sex classrooms will one day live and work side-by-side with members of the opposite sex. Educating students in single-sex schools limits their opportunity to work cooperatively and co-exist successfully with members of the...

Are oral exams a more effective way of assessing students' level of knowledge than written ones?

Litara

An oral exam is taken in the form of a dialog between the examiner and the examinee, when the latter can be given time to prepare for answering a question in advance or required to provide an almost immediate answer. Written exams are taken in the form of a test (open or closed) or an essay with the interaction between the participants limited. While both forms of examination have their own advantages and disadvantage, I'd like to defend the statement that oral exams are the more effective means...

Should teachers limit homework, for kids with busy afternoons, and students have worked all day?

Kids have been working their tails off with school work, only to come home and work some more. Should there be a limit in homework because of working, tired kids, and those who have busy after school times? Soon, kids will turn into robots because of how exhausted they are. I believe that home, is where a kid can relax, and not have to do SO MUCH WORK....

How to deal with a reading epidemic?

Olya_N

It's not a secret, that nowdays students' habit to read books is steadily declining. Students tend to have reading comprehension difficulties and they lack enthusiasm to read. From my point of view, more attention should be payd to this problem. Teachers should make students read more and inculcate their interest in reading. I would offer spesial school programm with creative approach, so that it would be not only theoretical. Students must be able to compare and explain what they have read. I t...

Affordable education

Maria_Gruzinova

We can say that education is a vehicle for individual and social advancement. If we look back in time, we recall that earlier education was available only to rich people. Education was a luxury that not everyone could afford. But time does not stand still, the present education is open to everybody, the main thing is desire and diligence. But every year it becomes easier and easier to get higher education: the number of places is increased every year (though only for paid tuition). In this regar...

Should schools make students wear uniforms?

lindsay.fieldhockey

I personally think that students should not be required to wear uniforms to school. First of all, as said from Shawn Ashmore, "Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality." See, if you had uniforms, students wouldn't be able to release their inner style, as I know because my schools do not have uniforms. Secondly, uniforms could make your grade go down. Most likely is because of being uncomfortable, and if I am not comfortable during class, I cannot concentrate on what I am worki...

Taxes should pay for public education. Its not fair for children to not get a proper education because their parents don't have money. Also the more education a country has, the richer and less war-torn it is....
