Should Students Who Post Threatening Comments On The Internet Be Arrested?

DiamondHeart

The student didn't actually have a big impact on society, and that student might just be playing a trick. Since he or she didn't really hurt anyone, they don't deserve to go to jail and be arrested. Young students, especially, couldn't have even thought about actually doing what they threatened about. Their brains are developing, unless they are college students, so their brains couldn't have possibly reached and thought beforehand about the consequences of threatening like how an adult can....

Should a fully virtual (online) education program be considered for students in grades K-12?

Istenstrom

I would like everyone's honest opinions. I am doing this for research so I would not be opposed to you saying if you are a student, parent, teacher, etc. I am not on either side but as a student I think virtual school would be fun if there are still hands on activities. I am not saying what my teacher(s) tell me to, but as my own person curious about what people think. Just to be clear I am not yes or no to this subject but in between....

This is my first debate, so I won't be really good at it. Here are some definitions: Desktop computer-Computers that usually have: A monitor, a mouse, a keyboard and the actual computer. Laptop: same as a desktop computer, though usually smaller can be taken from place to place. Usually has batteries. Here is my first argument: Laptops have rechargeable batteries, so they can be used somewhere an electrical socket is not provided. Second argument: Laptops can be taken from place to place,...

Teens or Tweens Should Not Have Smart Phones

Just_Me2002

I think no tween or teen should have a smart phone- at least not until high school. I'm not saying that they shouldn't have a cell phone. Cell phones that can only text or call are okay, but smart phones distract teens and tweens. They should be focusing on their studies and social life that's not in an electronic device. According to the statistics on http://readwrite.com/2013/04/08/teenagers-smar...

Apple Has Better Products Than Samsung

Chancho19
AlternativeDavid

Apple's entire system runs 5 times smoother than Samsung's Let me start with a question: Do you know who invented the first touchscreen smartphone? The answer is apple. Do you know who, in a court case, admitted to copying Apple's design? The answer is SAMSUNG. I don't ever want to hear that "Apple has copied Samsung." It is a lie. Apple's operating system runs the smoothest out of any smartphone device. Apple invented the Touch ID which gives your whole device an extra layer of se...

Do video games lead to violence?

bordierimsc2014
hannamsc2014

I believe that video games lead to violence. This violence can be demonstrated by kids, teenagers, and even adults. With technology these days, video games seem too real. I know that in the game 'Grand Theft Auto', gamers kill cops and steal cars. This gives people an idea that it is just to do this in the real world. I remember on the news one day how police were questioning a male for something. The male then stole one of the officer's guns and then killed the officers, followed by him stealin...
