I believe high school students should receive driving education so they can learn in a safe and reliable environment. And they can be proud of what they accomplish and make their teachers proud as well.

Con

While in schools are a safe environment, it ignores the fact that there are many other driving schools specifically for that, in which students can get instruction from teachers specially qualified for it. On the other hand, within schools, time is already strained enough in the short 8 hour day between other courses, and since many students may not need the ability to drive, it should be a personal choice to be able to learn it, and enroll in the course.

Excellent points while they could choose to enter it should still be in the school's so it's their so students could have the offer to join the class. That way they could don't have to go to a driving school. Another point what if the town they live in doesn't have a driving school.

While that is a valid concern, another issue would be school funding. Many schools already hardly have the money for necessary courses, let alone cars and a drivers ed program, forcing them to abandon programs such as art, music, better facilities, or extracurriculars. Skill-based learning can be done outside of school, as drivers ed is considered to be.
