boarding schools are better
Debate Rounds (3)
Furthermore, in boarding school, there are many special help programs available such as mentor-mentee program. The purpose of this mentor-mentee system is to provide guidance to students about academic matters and to foster a close and constructive professional relationship between students and the staff of the Faculty. While all lecturers in the Faculty are potentially academic advisors to all students who seek their advice, each teacher which is a mentor, is assigned particular responsibility to a small group of students which are the mentees. In daily schools, program me like this is less held compared to boarding schools.
There are some parents who look at boarding school as a place for children of the wealthy. There are of course other parents who see boarding school as a way to receive a better education for their child. Nowadays it seems that most public schools are way overcrowded, and not well equipped or staffed properly. One thing that you will need to keep in mind when it comes to boarding schools is that your child will be away from you for a certain period of time. Of course the academic standards of a boarding school as definitely much higher than that of a public school. Unfortunately what many parents don't realize is that the moral standards of the students who attend these boarding schools are really just the same as public schools.
Moreover, students will be more independent in life compared to the students who goes to daily schools. This is because; students who are in boarding schools are mostly far apart from their parents". They will be under the influence of others and will not have the daily support, love and care that children need from their parents. In most boarding schools the children are together twenty four hours a day, and these are the people who will ultimately determine how your child's moral standards will be. Some parents may also feel that it is safer; since the teachers in boarding schools have to go through a lot stricter screening process than those in public schools. They had to stay in the hostels in their school. In daily school, students can go back home and meet their parents every day. They rely a lot on their parents unlike the students in boarding schools. For students in boarding schools, they usually have to make their own decision to do something, unlike daily school students who always depend on their parents. So in the future, they can take care of themselves much better.
In other scope, boarding school can produce individuals who are very creative. This is because they can make something that daily school cannot do such as dorm decoration. These can talents of a person to more creative and innovative. Although student who studying at daily school can decorate their class room, but in the boarding school, we need to decorated the dorm with some themes that more challenging.
Moreover, many families choose boarding schools for their children because of the college preparation that our schools provide. With small class sizes, diverse curricula, and individual attention from faculty and advisors, the boarding school experience gives students many distinct advantages. So those, student can focus on their education well. At the same time, the teachers can give more attention to individuals who do not understand about some topic as the number of students in the class very little.
When it comes to academics boarding schools definitely take the cake. They do have a lot more structure, due to the fact that they can keep their class sizes a lot smaller than that of public schools.
I believe that children do benefit from attending boarding school, if the curriculum and program are set up correctly. If children are sent to a boarding school with a well-planned curriculum and extracurricular activities, I think they have a real chance to thrive. There definitely needs to be regular visits and activities planned with parental involvement. A boarding school provides students the opportunities to really bond with their peers and with the faculty, which could develop into some really great relationships that benefit them later on.
If the school is building character and well managed, it can be a benefit. This is not a black and white issue. Some children may benefit more than others depending on their needs. Some parents may be inadequate, in which case a boarding school would be preferable. Some schools may be inadequate so the parents may be more beneficial.
Boarding schools provide the unique and encouraging campus environment; students are tremendously active outside the classroom. Across the board, boarding school students participate in more extracurricular activities than other students, whether it's exercising and playing sports, engaging in creative endeavors like music and painting, or participating in student government and club activities.
The students benefit with designated study time assuring they complete their work. Strict time tables like this ensure a good education. Children are given a set bed time so they feel fresh and rejuvenated in the morning. They learn how to become mature civilized members of society, who have their heads screwed on and their minds set.
Boarding school gives time to be apart with the children's parents and to get confidence of not needing their parents completely in their lives. And children in boarding schools can be friends, so they can have a great time. Also, children can get more education than day schools. It has many benefits.
Students build much stronger friendships as they spend added amounts of time with their peers and with stronger friendships, come a more positive attitude. A positive attitude will lead to students putting in more work and essentially getting better grades. They have structure in their lives which may be lacking at home and they also will become more independent due to not having their parents around, which will be very valuable for life after school.
Boarding school keeps students in a bubble. They do not have exposure to the same troubles and life experiences as students who attend public school. Public school gives students a better grasp on the reality of what life is like for students less fortunate than themselves, because students who attend boarding school typically come from more well-off families.
According to me boarding school life is the best way to develop the quality of self-dependence in your children. At very early stages they develop decision making quality and mature thoughts. In these schools students live together and maintain their unity. This is not a punishment, as some children think that their parents don't love them so they were sending them to the boarding school. But those students who got opportunity to study in these schools were the luckiest among all other students and they can mold their future in the way they want to.
Children, by going to boarding school, gain independence and a sense of familiar community that cannot be compared with day school. They are surrounded by their peers where they learn how to interact with their peers, they learn from each other and gain sympathy, empathy, and understanding of other people and their lifestyles. They are given opportunities unavailable to everyone else, the chance to learn and be friends with people from all around the world.
Boarding school in itself is a good idea, it doesn't work though. It takes kids away from their parents. I know this can in theory be a good thing. However, Parents should be the ones providing life lessons and such. Might I add that kids have a bond with their parents that is inseparable.
I think taking kids away from their parents is the fundamental flaw in boarding school. It deprives from their parents. Don't get me wrong. Teachers are great and all but I do not think that they can replace a parental bond. Furthermore, Parents should be the ones teaching kids values and such. Family values. Not school values. Replacing actual values with school policies, (which the majority of schools do) is improper and invalid. It should be the Parents, not the teachers teaching the kids values for the rest of their life.
My next argument is support. Teachers are paid to do what they do. They do not offer the same support that parents do. I know you can use the argument that Teachers care as much as Parents do. But lets be realistic. Teachers work for a salary. They cannot supplement parental advice. Plus, they cannot offer advice regarding drugs or sex as it is against school policy to discuss such things to kids.
I'd like to advise all voters that the Pro has plagiarized his argument and that it is 100% unoriginal. He may have more words than me, however, I'd advise you vote on originality and content. Rather than words.
