Students should be able to pick their own classes but the Basic classes like Math are still Mandatory.


Counterplan text: the 50 States of the United States of America should substantially increase the freedom of choice students get within the generic courses of Math, English, Science, History, The Arts, as well as any other courses.

The Net Benefit is ensured education. Giving students total choice over their education gives them the possibility of forfeiting the classes they hate-- say Math-- when really it is key for them to be good and productive citizens. Mandating any math class, but enabling students to pick a math class, solves because it gives the students to pursue a specific portion of math, while ensuring the education they need to succeed.

Hello @ccmsdebater123 ,I would like to tell you that you already may choose your own classes and these classes are called electives. You choose these EXTRA classes to better your education and fill in your schedule at school, university, or collage.

I do hope this has helped you and that you shall shut down this silly debate.
