"No Child left Behind" Act be repealed?

dcarbone7

My argument is that the "No Child Left Behind" Act should be repealed, therefore making the CON argument that the Act should NOT be repealed. 8,000 characters are allowed, but you don't have to use all 8,000.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 I believe that the "No Child left Behind" Act should be repealed because I think that is is just an easier way to get children through school without having them actually learn.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...

The Dubuque Schools district( in Iowa) is enforcing a new thing. When kids go on spring break, they lose their memory of what they learned over the 2 weeks. I agree. When kids come back from the break, They don't remember what they were taught. Take Algebra for an example; At our schools kids don't try to remember what they were taught. They just throw it away! And to that, my friends I say "THAT IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU GET ANYWHERE!"...

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...

Junk food in school

Switzerland
freedomsquared

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...
