Should the SOLs be mandatory in middle schools.
I think the sols shouldn't be mandatory but be banned in middle schools because the SOLs could hurt the feelings of student who did bad on it. The SOLs affect your grade and if you do bad on it, your GPA will drop and if you have a 1.7 GPA and then take the SOLs and do bad on it, your GPA could drop to a 1.5 GPA. That is a D+, the grade can defect your chances of going to college, and most colleges require a 1.7 GPA or a 2.0 GPA, even know your GPA may go up in high school, middle schools GPA is a big factor in determining your classes in 9th grade. if you are a 1.5 GPA your options are limited other teens seceded in high school get to go to Harvard or Yale or William and Mary or any other good schools your stuck with community college which is not fair at all. All because you got a bad grade on the SOLs. Plus, It is hard. That is why SOLs shouldn't be mandatory but be banned in all middle schools.Thank you

I think that SOLs should be required for every kid in LCPS. The reason why is because it covers most things and tests how much kids know about a certain topic, such as, math, reading and science. Usually kids don't really take tests seriously so this will prep them to study more and to succeed. the SOLS are a big part of your grade so kids will have to study, motivating them and helping them to move on to the next grade.

no the sols shouldn't be required because if somebody does bad on the test there GPA will go down.

i disagree with that, It is your responsibility to do good on the SOLs and the GPA will also be effected by other things.

your are wrong. it should not be for every kid. It should not exist because it can defect your grade.
people like you do not under stand the Sols can defect your grade. you little spastic.

It doesnt matter whether or not it affects your grade, its the kids responibiliy to study and know his topics in school such as science and english. if they do know they could get into better colleges and get a great career.

1 points to Pro (Conduct). Reasons for voting decision: My biases: I agreed with pro before and after the debate. Conduct: Forfeits on both sides, but con insulted pro. Spelling and grammar: Con submitted 25 major spelling/grammatical/word usage errors whereas pro submitted three major errors (although he submitted several smaller ones). Arguments: Neither side adequately addressed the other's opening statement (Or is it others'? I've stumbled onto a grammatical Bermuda Triangle). Because this "debate" was essentially straight-up contradiction, arguments are tied. Sources: None on either side, so it's a tie.

[*Reason for removal*] While the voter is allowed to vote on this basis alone, the voter must do more than state that one side insulted the other. Specific instances must be cited as part of the RFD.
