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...

should students have to do homework?

I believe that students shouldn't have to do homework. 1. they spend six hours at school, five days a week. 2. they need time to relax and time to spend with their family and friends. 3. majority of high school students have jobs to go to after school. 4. the Australian government is now thinking about adding another day to the school week, plus longer hours. 4. if the students are pushed too much, they will become frustrated and most likely give up on their schooling altogether....

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...

Should the School's of Older Children have Recess

tichytactoe
davidsondw17

YES! I think that the older kids should definitely have recess! The fact is that younger teenagers that are 13 or 14 are growing even faster than their peers below them and need to get out. Also another point is that the older kids have more homework. It is scientifically proven that if the children have been playing and gotten their energy they will work better....
