Should Literacy and Writing be Encouraged More in American Education?

bman7720

Looking at the mainstream media, an educated linguist may find themselves cringing at the absolute disregard for proper grammar and spelling used by our youth society. This issue has evolved from a matter of laziness to a matter of inability. Frankly, we're on a literacy downfall. The disregard for language generally starts in middle school and furthers into high school, in which the lack of encouragement and writing tasks only make this injustice easier. Academic writing is a crucial skil...

Troll Debate

In my opinion, we should roast the dwarves slowly. Though I believe this to be the obvious solution, one might argue that we should mince them fine and boil them. If this is your opinion you may accept this debate. First round is acceptance....

Females are better people than males.

Kozu

If there were to be only one gender on earth, which gender would be able to live together more peacefully? If one were to look at the nature of females overall, and how they interact with the rest of their community, I believe most would agree females are much better than males in this aspect. They're often more less-aggressive, more empathetic, and able to better cope with reality. This debate will essentially be about who is better at living in a community of others, males or females....

Should America switch from gerrymandered districts to at-large PR/ranked choice districts?

juminrhee

America is a large country. The ratio of representatives to citizens is close to 1 million to 1. To have a better ratio would require well over 2,000 representatives. This would likely be overly burdensome. Further, both parties are able to redraw districts, except in a few cases where independent commissions do this, to their own benefit. Without having to redraw districts every 10 years could save money and take away political corruption. Each state has at-large elections for the Senate, so we...

Should states/provinces adopt the council-manager system as used in many local goverments?

juminrhee

Many local governments in both the US and Canada utilize the council-manager system. In this system, the city council and sometimes the mayor are elected. The council then selects a professional manager, and not a politician, to actually handle administration. This system could actually remove politics from the executive and strip them of extra powers that are now considered executive privilege now. Further, the professional manager can be fired by the council. This is similar to a parliamentary...

Before we get started, I have a couple rules 1. All you need to do in the first round is to accept the debate. You may continue onto your arguments if you want after accepting the debate 2.

Be reasonable and not stupid Now I would just like to talk about why genetically modified insects are bad. Genetically modified insects is not what we want. If we, for example, genetically modi...

Britain should not have a Royal Family

TheImpossibleGirl

As a British resident myself, I believe that the British royal family is a waste of time, money and publicity. My first reason, is that the British Royal family brings shame and unwanted attention to Britain. In July 2012, on a holiday to Los Vegas, Prince Harry was photographed naked, during a round of strip poker. After being questioned about this photos, Prince Harry refused to comment, showing his lack of respect for the country. This cast unwanted and unnecessary attention onto Britai...
