Math is more important than English Language Arts

Pence27

I will start off with stating the obvious. Math is essential to any REAL job in the world. I understand basic grammar such as: "I is gooder then you is" to "I am better than you are." If you want to be successful in life and have a family, you must have a decent job to support your family. Math is important to most REAL degrees excluding teaching to get a job in the world....

Should History in school be dropped or compressed

DboPoint

In school, there is tremendous time spend by teaching kids the history. All the names, dates, etc. outside of just knowing the basics and having access to Google, should we teach History in school? Should we instead compress history curriculum by 90%? With World getting smaller, and with so many valuable insights we can learn from our past, History is really important. Kids need to understand history as they will be future leaders of our country....

Public Schools should abolish the grade system because it can cause lots of stress and cause low self esteem. also the amount of homework some kids can get all at one time is insane and all it take is the homework to be wrong and to lower their grades dramatically. In a study the more homework that a child has can lead to a higher chance of stress, depression, and lower grades http://tinyurl.com/homeworkgrades Also low grades are not just stressful for kids it is also stressful for parents too...

Should students be allowed to listen to MP3 players on headphones during study hall?

I think kids should be able to listen to music during study hall for several reasons. For example, it helps you focus, and can make you happy depending on what kind you listen to. Then, the happier you are, the better grades you get. Better grades means a better job with more money. So, what do you think?...

extra recces should be banned

Legal liability is another justification for cutting recess times. Children could fall while jumping rope or get hit with a baseball. Some administrators are skittish about making themselves vulnerable to any legal action. " As schools cut back on expenses because of budget cuts, paraprofessionals are often cut from the staff and supervision at recess becomes a problem. Volunteers are difficult to find for a recess duty. " Strangers can access a playground easily at some schools and sexual...
