For and against learning international news at school
Debate Rounds (3)
Even if, reading international news could really keep literacy rates up to some extent, I believe reading books is more helpful and national news should has the same influence. Since national news are more meaningful to us, why do we or students need to learn international news at school?
For me, studying international news in school is a waste of time. Students who are interested in contemporary issues can easily find access to obtain international news. For those who have no interest in news, passive learning would do more harm than good.
2. My opponent said he read news every morning, as a result of papers on international news stories he did when he was young (or younger). A lot of people, who did not learn international news at school, enjoy reading news everyday too, Also, Learning news at school does not mean kid would read news often in the later stage of life.
3. In the same way, learning this subject does not necessary lead to literate individuals, as reading classes and writing classes do.
4.News will lost its value when time pass. It is undoubtedly that when kids grow up news that they learnt in school will out of date. Education is cost a lot each year. So it is unnecessary to waste education resource on such subject.
