Should children with special needs go to a seperate school with other special needs kids?
Debate Rounds (3)
would you send someone with a physical disability to a school where only people who have one are, of course not its the schools responsibility to make students with disability's welcome.
At my school we have a couple kids with a large variety of mental disability and they all have special teachers who go with them to class. they get to do cool projects and present them to the school. one of the girls has a mental disability and has a hard family life, but every so often the school lets her go and sing in front of the school. she is not very good at singing and a lot of people would bully her except for the fact that she always has her personal teacher with her.
I think that programs like this should be implicated into every school, because I know that being treated as "normal" while you still receive the educational help you need could make the difference in the lives of all those affected.
to conclude I think that going to a special school should be a choice and that receiving educational help at school should be mandatory. But I think that you have some good points as well I just think that they are not correct
also what qualifies as a mental illness, does it include things like depression eating disorders etc...
And to answer your question, I'm pretty sure what you stated as what could be mental illnesses are, but I mean big ones like autism, down syndrome, etc.
"Children who have mental issues should go to a different school than "normal kids". Their educational experience will be so much better because that way they can work at their own pace and have no limit to work and solve the problems."
With the system of having a personal teacher and personalized learning programs you could accomplish the same thing and still be able to better develop your people skills for when they graduate from school. Secluding the children cannot help them later on in the future, they will not know how the world works or how to lead a normal life.
you also said...
" In conclusion, I think that a SEPARATE education and school for kids with mental issues is beneficial in many different areas."
You said in the next round...
"Maybe the public schools could set up a program that connects the kids after school. They could visit their local public school sometimes, too.
Separate means separate you cannot back track now. You said you wanted separate schools were students with mental disability's would create relationships with ONLY other students with disability's. Also I don't think you are able to guess what the parents of the child will decide and you should not make assumption's.
To continue I am not sure if YOU know this but the point of school is to prepare children for their lives after school, not only to force information into their brains.
And to clarify once more, people who are suicidal, have eating disorders, do self harm. Are not IMPORTANT enough to go to a school for the mentally ill???
Why should children be alienated just because they have a mental disability, they should be treated kindly and with respect. they deserve to go to normal school just like you and me. Maybe they need extra help, but that is what tutors are for. with a little extra work and care these children can live completely normal, happy , social lives. Separating the children from the rest could be disastrous for their mental health.
Just for the sake of argument, if a student goes to a special school and receives extra attention but feels completely alienated and different from the general public is that not inferior to going to public school receiving a little extra help working hard and feeling equal and just as capable as anyone else.
And you have not answered my earlier question.
"And to clarify once more, people who are suicidal, have eating disorders, do self harm. Are not IMPORTANT enough to go to a school for the mentally ill???"

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had decent conduct throughout the debate. S&G - Pro. Con had several areas where she failed to use proper capitalization. Normally, this wouldn't be an issue, but I saw no such errors from Pro - thus Pro wins S&G. Arguments - Con. This was a weird debate that I felt should have been refined clearer. Pro argued that special needs' children should go to seperate schools in order to have a more appropriate education. This included a lack of bullying and special teachers. Con showed how both bullying and special teachers is already an issue that's resolved in normal schools, thus taking away the harms that Pro listed. Pro then backtracked a little bit, altering his argument from separate schools to special programs in normal schools. This, however, contradicts the resolution he's affirming. Con rightfully called him out on that. From there, Pro made no solid impacts. Due to Con defeating Pro's points successfully, Con wins arguments. Sources - Tie. Neither used sources.
