Hello everyone here, this is my very first post,
and I'd like to know what everyone's position.

Should high schools be held accountable if students don't learn what they are suppose to?
Metz

Alright lets begin:

I will be taking Pro on this debate as you can see so I will argue that high schools should be help accountable if student don't learn what they are supposed to.

for purpose of this debate we should assume a "many students" because all students and no student are impossibke situations thus, many is the most fair to the debate.

1. The "High school" includes teachers, administration and all other faculty. Obviously if the student do not learn what they are supposed to then teachers are not doing their Jobs. This is directly the fault of the teachers, who may not be qualified or experienced or other factors. Thus the teachers did not perform there obs correctly and should be held accountable. If a Plumber did not fix your plumbing you would say it was his fault, so you kid doesn't learn it is the teachers fault.

2. The problem can also be traced to the administration of the school, if the Principle(or other administrator) did not hire well, then obviously the teacher would not be as good. Or if the Principle did not have experience running a school their decisions could impact classroom atmosphere having a negative impact of learning.

if the school were not held accountable that would keep all of the employees free from any sort of blame and would essentially tell them that they could do what they wanted because if something went wrong it was not your fault. Obviously this should not be the case. I Urge everyone to vote pro

Welcome to the site.

You should post a resolution, like "High schools should be held responsible if students do not learn what they are supposed to." Or, "High schools should not ..." Then we know what side you are defending. Also, you should make opening arguments defending the side you are taking.

Yes, high schools should be held responsible. That's their business. It's like auto mechanics being responsible for fixing cars.
