Should self-defense classes be required in high school?

If self-defense classes were required for high-schoolers to take, I believe that there wouldn't be as many cases of sexual assault and violence against women. Sexual assault is as prominent as ever in today"s society. According to the Journal of College Counseling, "1 out of every 4 women on college and university campuses had been victims of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault". Another article by the American Journal of Public Health states that, "It is estimated that in their lifetime...

I belive nuclear weapons should be banned because they have destroyed a lot over the past few years . Any country that has nuclear weapons uses them as leverage over other weaker countries. They have caused more harm than that can be repaired and even in TOKYO peoples are still bearing children that are disabled, this is a result of nuclear explosions. Radiation poisining remains present for years and years, good arable soil is lost, manpower (humans) are lost , and wildlife destroyed. Nucle...

Women Are Treated Unfairly

Nk2365
byaka

Women should be equal to men but they are treated unequally. For example, "Women are almost half of the workforce. They are the sole or co-breadwinner in half of American families with children. They receive more college and graduate degrees than men. Yet, on average, women continue to earn considerably less than men. In 2015, female full-time, year-round workers made only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 20 percent. Women, on average, earn less than men in nearly ev...

Should Homework be Banned?

Should homework be banned? I don"t know, what do you think? I think it should, not that I want to dumber, or anything dumb like that. I want YOUR opinion on that. I hope you enjoy! First off, it wastes a lot of your time. The reason I think that is because when you are planning to do something fun after school, the teacher ends up giving you homework. When that happens, you don"t have time to do anything fun! That is the reason(s) why I think that. Second off, too much homework could actua...

Should E- Books replace Text books

Tmandebates
ReneeJ

Should textbooks be replaced by e- textbooks? I believe that textbooks are a waste of paper, many students are careless with them, and so they damage the book by drawing on the pages or ripping them out. But when that happens it renders the learning abilities of other students, because they are running the book. But if we were given e- copies of textbooks students would not be able to ruin them and since this is the 21st century almost everyone has tablets, laptops, I Pads and even phones. That...

Abortion is Immoral.

bfkennedy
DethKnot

I will take the stance of Pro-Life. I believe that a fetus is considered a form of human life and has the rights a human has from the moment of fertilization to birth. A few things to begin, scientists have established that life begins at fertilization (Princeton). With this in mind, it is important to understand that an abortion at any week during the pregnancy is the taking of a life, regardless of the physical traits that the fetus has yet&n...
