Homework should be optional in schools

Homework should be optional for students to complete in school. Homework, although useful for practicing the skills taught in class, has been shown to cause depression, stress (1), and even physical problems such as migraines, stomach problems, weight loss, and sleep deprivation (2). In a study conducted by a Stanford researcher involving high school students who lived in upper-middle class communities, 56% of the students considered homework a primary source of stress (3). In most schools, home...

Laptops are great for saving paper; a major issue in modern society, because as we all know, paper origina...

Ground forces need to engage in a war and a recon must be done on the enemy camp before the attack as we do not want civilian deaths. The military must be able to differentiate between the ISIS militants and the civilians. Since, the ISIS has committed genocide, which is a war crime, instea...

The XXII amendment of the U.S. Constitution should be repealed.

Blade-of-Truth

R: The XXII amendment of the U.S. Constitution should be repealed. Text of XXII Amendment https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution#Text For clarity there is a difference between term limits, which limit the number of terms a person may serve as president and term lengths which are 4 years. This debate is about term limits... not term lengths. Rematch!!!! Blade of truth and I re-doing this debate. http://www.debate.org/debates/The-XXII-...
