Should E- Books replace Text books

Tmandebates

Should textbooks be replaced by e- textbooks? I believe that textbooks are a waste of paper, many students are careless with them, and so they damage the book by drawing on the pages or ripping them out. But when that happens it renders the learning abilities of other students, because they are running the book. But if we were given e- copies of textbooks students would not be able to ruin them and since this is the 21st century almost everyone has tablets, laptops, I Pads and even phones. That...

Is homework good for students

Homework is something most students dread. It is time consuming and often very very difficult. Many kids have after school programs and that can get in the way of having time for homework, students may be up all night sometimes not even getting any sleep which can result in a drop in grades and overall performance, in school to just being social. Homework causes a lot of stress as well and stress has been proven to kill more people then pneumonitis in a year. Homework can cause more than physica...

Homeschooling is better than learning in school

These days we are learning to much unnecessary information in school that will not help us in the future. They are many advantages to this topic and I will be listing the best one's I know. Homeschooling provides flexibility. You can create a weekly schedule that allows your child to learn without the constraint of a traditional classroom. If they are quick learners you can move on to new material, rather than boring their eager minds as many public schools do. On the other hand, if your chil...

Should Schools have to do the pledge of allegiance

Schools should not be having students saying the pledge of allegiance because it is not only completely unnecessary but it is annoying. No one wants to stand there and recite the words that mean you are subjecting yourself to the government and in that time you could be working on getting ahead. Kids in my class have turned it into a joke, and my teachers don't get why we do it and just rush to get it done...

school discipline

I think society is winding down into chaos, becauce all discipline and all power is taken from teachers. Our society (England) has lost its way, discipline has become a taboo word almost, we say things were "just as bad" in the days teachers used the cane, but thats not the point. Discipline is for the individual, to know right and wrong. Our society has taken authority and thrown it overboard, we will grow worse and worse, human nature craves discipline to be dispensed,its a fathers job....

Students should rather learn how to solve real world situations.

Students in the US are subjective to having to learn things that are not needed. It would be best that a student learns the necessities in life too. I'm not saying that the education is bad it's just that the students don't know how to communicate or pay taxes. They don't know the way into making a successful business. They need to learn how to become successful too....

no school

i thank that there should be no school. the reason why i thank this is because the parents can teach the students. i thank that the parents should be able to have a choice whether to send there child to school or not. its no right that the parents have to send there child to school. every person should have freedom and making parents send there child to school is not giving freedom at all. nobody should be made to do anything. and when there is school your not aloud to wear certain clothes....

THBT Homework should not be given out to students.

iAmMurtaza2003

I believe that for this debate, I will be taking the PRO side. In this debate, I will be introducing some reasons for why homework is bad and how it doesn't help students learn better. Some of the points I will be covering will be the fact that a lot of the time homework is simply busy work. How much will you really learn from a standardized worksheet? If homework does not provide opportunities for meaningful learning experiences, it's unlikely that most students will get a lot out of it. As a p...

Should homework be abolished?

Unicornlandia1
WitherDragon999

First, I'd just like to thank everyone who is reading this debate for their time and thank my opposition.I know it sounds silly, but homework could be a major reason for students being poorly educated or mentally unstable. Crazy right? Well, read on.Let's start with stress.We all know that the mind learns best when it is relaxed and happy. Is it really helping to drill homework into students, after they've already been working hard for
