What makes you think so? Please show me your reasons.
And, I have one more question. Does 'The head of school' mean 'principal'? If you think this, I have the powerful motive to oppose your idea.

I mean that one student can be in the managemet of the school. Let say that its the caption and the management have to get the caption's view before each issue related to the students can be made.. There can be representatives from each class and they can decide whats good or bad for them. For example changing of a teacher. In this case the students can express their views. We feel that there is no contact between the management and the students and most of the time students cant express their views.
I beleive that its really a great idea and t would benefit the student relationship between the management...

Hmm its ur turn ..What made u think that ts a bad idea?

-There can be representatives from each class and they can decide whats good or bad for them.

If you think high school in some countries and universities, your thinking is not bad.(But if you say this next round, I also oppose your opinion because this is the debate.) But, firstly you didn't tell me what schools that can be pointed out of your idea. If the middle school and primary school that you think, it is the thing that I want to oppose your idea. As I know, most of these schools in the world be located in the system of compulsory education. Compulsory education is based on this assumption. - Young students don't have adequate ability of judging situations so they must be protected and educated. - So as I know, most of the country in your age have incomplete right of the civil law. Most area of the management in school is basically located in the civil law, so it must be charged of the teachers and managers of school who have right of judging situations in school. In addition, in the aspects of education, the rights of teachers and managers of school are based on the trust from your parents who have a charge of your life during their pupilage and the laws that support compulsory education.
Of course, education in the democratic countries also help student to learn the attitude of citizen, but it does not mean not to manage the protected people. Young students are too young to judge what is good or bad.

-For example changing of a teacher. In this case the students can express their views. We feel that there is no contact between the management and the students and most of the time students can't express their views.

As I have mentioned before, in the pupilage parents have parental rights to their children. If the teacher have lack of right to teach their students, there are no help from student representatives. Children can say their parents, and parents can judge the teacher and decide what they do. In addition, parents do often require opposite ways to their children that are opposed to the judges of their children, in spite of that children should follow their parents most of the situations. It is not a unreasonable thing.

Lets see a single example..

the caption iand vice caption has rights in the school management. They can punish students who misbehave.. I feel that we ought to change the educational system

In addition, I don't exactly know what 'caption' mean.
(Cite from : http://kr.dictionary.search.yahoo.com...)
*Caption : the words that accompany a photograph, cartoon, etc to explain it.

I don't understand what on earth yas use this word.
In addition, she said 'the caption iand vice caption has rights in the school management. They can punish students who misbehave.. I feel that we ought to change the educational system' but she did not add any more reasons or evidence that can support her final example. And, She did never oppose my refutation. So, Everyone. Please vote me to my win in this debate.

" do you believe that an unexperience human being (i am refering to the youth's) can manage exactly, directly or indirectly a group of learners that is seeking a quality and advantageous education"

and to the PRO if only one student will be representing the head still the elderly is powerful.

eg. (a scenario)there is a votation for the org. fair what if the school authorities (the elderly) doesn't like the proposal and the attendees are majority the elders would you think that the students proposal will be accepted.

although I believe I agree with the pro side of the debate, I feel that pro did not state her beliefs in a way that was easily understood. Therefore I have to vote for con. Pro, next time maybe you should spend a little more time to clarify your arguments.
