Parents should be as involved in a child's school education as possible.

Litara

It cannot be denied that parents play an important role in the school education of their children, encouraging, helping to make important decisions, fighting to keep the children on the right track. On the other hand, there are numerous examples of parents who seem to take their involvement a bit too far. They control every academic step of their children, check their homework (in extreme cases - force the children to do that homework/ do it for them), scold them for anything short of excellence...

No money for education

InfraRedEd
Mickeyrocks

Just keep the buildings maintained and let the people use them and manage their use. If they want to just play bingo that is just fine. Why don't the universities cancal classes and just have $port$ since it is what they have done anyway by cutting off funding and letting Monsanto tell Berkeley to fire a prof who showed that there might be adverse effects to GE. Big business is telling us what to teach and ruining any chance of getting an education. We need to free education and give it back to...

Though it's a far, desperate reach to get rid of junk food availability for children outside parental supervision I believe it's imperative that we try. It's said junk food/processed food has common neurobiological effects on the brain as a hard drug like heroin or cocaine would have, making you feel you need it when you don't. With that being said is it not immoral to provide an addiction that young minds couldn't understand or overcome untill later age or maybe never? I think the young generat...

"No Child left Behind" Act be repealed?

dcarbone7
congresschick

My argument is that the "No Child Left Behind" Act should be repealed, therefore making the CON argument that the Act should NOT be repealed. 8,000 characters are allowed, but you don't have to use all 8,000. Good Luck to my opponent, have fun! I believe that the "No Child left Behind" Act should be repealed because I think that is is just an easier way to get children through school without having them actually learn. I think that many kids in school are being taught how to test, not being t...
