There are 4 million potential life savers just waiting to be trained. If life saving techniques were taught there would be a lot more people to save lives. CPR should be taught in all high schools as a requirement. It could save thousands of life"s a year. It would only take two to three hours and you could save a life....

Should we have longer breaks in middle/high school

kangaroo4

As a student of the upper the grades, I think there should be more time for a break maybe around 25 minutes. With that time, it allows you to have a better conversation with your friends. School is also about developing social relationships that many kids don't get even after school because of homework and other extra curricular activities. I have a lot of friends that don't text because they forget and allows a break that doesn't force you to hurry and eat lunch or be quiet and do your work. It...

the unites states federal government should substantially curtail its domestic surveillance

For the government to substantially curtail its domestic surveillance, there are many flaws to this plan. The United States government should not restrict domestic surveillance because of the well known fact of new terrorist attacks. Terrorist attacks can happen any day, any time, and anywhere. There are only 3 ways to stop terrorist attacks which are interrogation, penatration, and signals intelligence. 2 of the ways are invalid due to the fact that there are consequences to them. The Interroga...

Long Summer Breaks for Elementary and Middle School students Should be Eliminated

UnendingRevision
Laserfighter12

The 3-month long summer vacation that is common in public schools across America should be reduced for the benefit of the students. Shorter, more frequent breaks, should replace the system that we currently have in place. The only exception would be 11th-12th grade students who should have those months off and be provided the resources and guidance to find summer jobs, thereby easing their transition into adulthood....

is cloning a good idea

Cinnamon

Making a clone is not making an Alien. Cloning someone is not excluding them from society and making another race, its like having a child and they will not clone every single person in the world, for those against commenting that the world population will increase and their will be a demand of water and so on. World population is increasing everyday because of birth and cloning is not so different from that. World population will be at its same rate because when you clone they start out as...

Gym class should be cut

Bennadebater
Etagnard

Anxiety in adults is bad for our society as a lot of resources and billions of dollars are used to fix anxiety and depression in the adult population. Here is where exercise in school comes in: I think it is time to deal with the source of anxiety which is the fact that children sit down too much in school and mainly uses the brain to workout problems. This way of living will inevitably cause stress due to TOO much thinking, and a way to fix this would be to have the children to do more physical...
