Catholic schools are a disgrace to education
Debate Rounds (3)
This debate is about why their is any reasons to send your kids there. If I wanted to I could write a whole book about why I hated it. I've decided to put a few points for you to argue about.
1. The quality of education is terrible compared to its public school counterparts. Teachers are sometimes decent, but from my experience a little less then half were any good *cough *cough nuns *cough *cough. These nuns are just awful at teaching, do they even have a teaching degree? The technology isn't so great either, not to mention their is really no extra activitiy.
Yes I understand that its a Catholic School,( still against the idea of forcing religion on your kids,but thats a topic for another day). Their one sided argument is just awful. Lies, rubbish, bs all fed to these kids. Religion is relatively easy of a subject, write what they want you to write. They will never show the athiest side of an argument, just their utter bs.
They display athiest as satan's workers. Their is no room to question their delusional bs, that might result in punishment even depending on a school. A friend of mine sent a photo
"10 reasons why its a shame to be an athiest" with 3 filled out already. I laughed and asked where she got this, the answer was her teacher. In this time and age I was in a little shock something like that exists. Here are some examples from the paper "reasoning" why its a shame. "For you beuty is only skin deep" "No religious Holidays" and "When someone sneezes, you have nothing to say." Let me know what you think below.
Coming to the topic, I"ve been educated in Catholic Schools as well, and for what I know, even though the education council or the one who frame the syllabi for schools could vary all around the world, but the method of catholic education remains mostly the same. And while you start your argument saying how much you hated being there, I see a younger version of me in you. I hated being in school, but when I see myself now, I think my schooling was one of the primary reasons why I"m doing well today.
You might have often wondered, if the things that you learnt back in school are even important to you. I can safely say that half of us aren"t as smart as a 5th grader- the TV show was a burning proof of the same. What I want to emphasize here is that school teaches us the basics of life and discipline which helps us a lot more in our lives. The virtues likes organized,disciplined that we often mention on our resumes are the result of the catholic schooling. Most importantly, the school treats you as their own and they feel that they are responsible for the development of all their students, thus individual attention is often found here.
Agreed, the nuns in the Catholic schools might not be the best of the trade, but considering the funds of a public school, you need to consider the fact that they aren"t bad either. And this is the reason, why people have a difference in opinion here. Some believe that the fundamentals of life are more important than what you learn, because you"d do that in college anyway, o the other hand some believe in giving their children the best infrastructure.
Coming to the point which clearly seems to top the list of your concerns-Religion. I live in India, and we had a pretty secular environment in our Catholic schools, Hindus, Muslims, Christians all studying together. Now, I agree religion or Value Education as we call it here was a bit Christianity centric, but it was just restricted to the paper, it was never imposed upon us.
Now, I understand there could be some variations in our arguments due to the geographical differences, but I hope I might have been able to pacify your anger over Catholic Schools
