Smooosh
asox44

I encourage everyone to ignore pattents, and I especially encourage college students to secretly record their professors lectures and post them on youtube at the end of the semester!!!! Definitions Intellectual property: a work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a...

byaka2013

Many believe that with the rise in economy causing a drastic rise in tuition and other cost that college is not worth all the costs. As seen on Colorado State University Global Campus website, in an article called, Is College worth it?, state, "It can be easy for employers to reach the conclusion that degree holders are more efficient employees, since college may provide students with a greater ability to think analytically, and the discipline to see multiple tasks through from start to finish"....

Also by wearing uniforms, it would allow students to not worry so much about their appearance and arrive to school on time. Instea...

Anasilva17
Sdewalden

Sex education should be taught in schools because it educates young and irresponsible students who think they are on top of the world and know everything. It also educates young and mature students but may not be fortunate to have a proper sex ed conversation held with their parents. Some parents feel uncomfortable to have a sex ed conversation with their kids therefore, they are more at risk of having unprotected sex that can lead to AIDS and pregnancy. My opponent might say that sex education...
