does the UK and US education systems need a full review and overhaul
Debate Rounds (3)
What is a need?
In the context of this debate, what is a need? Is it an urge, is it an undeniable warrant? Pro has left this undefined and it is one of the flaws in the resolution itself that makes it near impossible to uphold. Can education itself need something or can the clients of it need it instead? Only a person or being can need something as far as I am aware and Pro has yet to explain how the unconscious, inanimate facility that is education can possibly need something in the first place.
What is an overhaul?
An overhaul is not simply making slight amendments to the current education system. It would be entirely recalibrating how education is delivered and who is doing the delivering to who as well as when is it all done. Pro has merely suggested sorting out the school dinners (which packed lunch is a viable alternative for) and to essentially make mathematics calculator-based only. The issue is that there is already calculator examinations for mathematics and students do not really find them all that easy as far as I am aware.
I await Pro's response.
every citizen has certain basic rights that the state cannot take away from them. These rights are internationally recognized and guaranteed. Everyone has the right to have their own beliefs, including their religious beliefs, and to say and write what they think. Everyone has the right to seek different sources of information and ideas. Everyone has the right to associate with other people, and to form and join organizations of their own choice, including trade unions. Everyone has the right to assemble and to protest government actions. However, citizens have an obligation to exercise these rights peacefully, with respect for the law and for the rights of others. https://web.stanford.edu...
these are the absolute opposite of the school system, where there are harsh penalties for 'assembling and peacefully protesting' and there are often tight restrictions on 'forming and joining organisations'. this often restricts children from learning about the real world.
