Hello, Thank you for accepting and let us begin
As studies have shown previously, Students or kids in general are for the most part able to pick right from wrong and "good" from "bad", they can also pick what they like over what they dislike or merely what doesnt interest them in as much. If allowed i believe that students would pick what they like whether it be math, history, science, law, sports or etc, this in turn would give them more incentive to study harder, really learn the money and become motivated. However, students would be forced to take English and perhaps math.

The only down side that i can see or think of is that students would try and waste their time and not pick anything they like, but just something that takes very little action. But this can dealt with since students try this to impress people or gain respect, so individualizing the student gives him more time to actually decide.

Further more students who pick their classes, have a bigger incentive to learn, giving them a bigger incentive to study and do well, therefore they will do better in life. Which will in the future allow them to get a better job and so forth. Also, as a student you will just be more excited to go to class and more happier which could potentially cause less suicide rates and less bullying.

I really dont know what else to say, since Con has not said anything to help his case.
Thank You
