Should uniforms be required in schools?

zhanel666
Yang-Ching

Uniforms shouldn't be required in schools because of many considerable reasons. To start off, uniforms don't allow kids and teenagers to express themselves through clothes. Their fashion choices are supposed to tell something about a student. Choosing their own outfits that they favor usually gives the students the confidence for the day, which is crucially important for self-esteem and their performance at school. According to the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, "allowing students to...

Is college education worth it?

L.Quezada

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"....

Just because you have an opinion, that doesn't mean you're immune to criticism.

After looking at a lot of videos on YouTube, I've noticed that people use the phrase "This is my opinion", being thrown pretty much everywhere, implying that it shields them from something. This debate is here to see if someone thinks opinions actually do shield you from criticism, and whether or not they can back up their claim. And now, my points. Opinions, everyone has them, but that doesn't mean much outside of that. Just because you have an opinion, that doesn't mean you're more likel...

The duodecimal system should be used in society rather than decimal.

Sensorfire
SteveHeist

The duodecimal (or dozenal) system, or base twelve, is superior to decimal, or base ten, for a number of reasons. Ten has only 2 and 5 as non-trivial factors. Twelve has 2, 6, 3, and 4. Thus, elementary fractions such as 1/2, 1/3, 2/3. 1/4, and 3/4 all have convenient duodecimal represenations, being 0.6, 0.4, 0.8, 0.3 and 0.9, respectively. This gets rid of problems of repeating numbers that would be encountered particularly with 1/3 and 2/3 in decimal. This means common fractio...

Are single-sex schools better for childeren?

I will start this debate by defining the motion. By single-sex schools, I mean schools with only girls or only boys in one school. As I am done defining to motion, I will begin my arguments. 1. Distraction Children of he opposite sex can be a distraction. Especially for middle and high school students, there could be students who date each other, and this could be a big distraction for students who need to study. As you know, middle and high school is the time to study to o to a better high...

"Art projects" in English classrooms do not help students and weaken their writing skills.

Electric
dipper

Art projects in English classrooms at the high school level do not help students learn how to write well. Students can barely put together a sentence in college, and the first few weeks of many college classes are wasted re-learning basic grammar and writing techniques because frustrated professors want students to write at a college level when many of them cannot. I personally find these "Art Projects" frustrating because they hurt my grades in high school. We were graded on our ability to d...

Evolution should be taught in public schools

EdgeOfTheInfinite
RonPaulConservative

First round is for acceptance and definitions though definitions can be placed and clarified in the second round as well but none else. Second round for arguments only. Third round for rebuttals only. Fourth round is for counter-rebuttals and concluding statements. Evolution-the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. Theory-a coherent group of propositions formulated to explai...
