I believe that kids should listen to music at school, but it has to be peaceful. Such as, classical, Christian, or just anything calm. However, kids like to listen to more violent songs such as rap, rock, and pop. I believe that kids should just listen to peaceful music so that they can concentrate.

I think kids should listen to music at home and get homeschooled instead of listening to music at school.

"Great Things About Homeschooling
There are many advantages to homeschooling children. These benefits include the following:

  • Excellent education. The overriding goal of homeschooling is to educate children. In this, homeschool excels. Because of the many advantages offered by homeschooling, there is simply no better way to educate a child. That homeschooling is a great way to educate a child can be shown in several ways. First, consider the items in this list. Many of these benefits are easy to understand and the positive impact they have on children are obvious. Second, homeschooled children perform better on standardized tests. For example, in a recent comparison of SAT scores, homeschooled children averaged 568 on the verbal test and 525 on the math; the national average was 506 on verbal and 514 on math. While those differences might not seem significant for individuals, as differences in averages for populations of students, they are very significant. Third, homeschoolers are becoming sought-after for higher education. Many colleges and universities have begun to modify their admission practices to not only allow for, but to encourage, homeschoolers to apply for admission.

  • Dedicated teachers with a great teacher-to-student ratio. One factor that is known to be extremely important to educating a child effectively is the teacher-to-student ratio-that is, the number of students for which a teacher is responsible. Other factors include the degree of connection present between teacher and student and the amount of dedication a teacher has to a specific child. Homeschooling excels in both these areas. Who can be more dedicated to helping a child learn successfully than that child's parent? Parents love their children and dedicate their lives to helping their children successfully grow to maturity. So, no one is more dedicated to a child than the parent. And, homeschooling is done largely on a one-on-one basis; there can't be a better teacher-to-student ratio than that. In these two areas, which are both critical to a child's education, homeschooling is simply the best scenario.

  • Education tailored to a child's capabilities and personality. Because homeschool is focused on children as individuals, a child's education can be tailored to her capabilities and personality. If a child excels in a specific area, his education in that area can be accelerated. If a child struggles in a particular area, additional resources can be brought to bear to help. Also, the way children are taught can be based on how the child best learns because of the child's personality. For example, if a child is a visual learner, more visual elements can be incorporated into that child's instruction. Instead of the cookie-cutter approach to education that is required in an intuitional setting, homeschool provides the opportunity for a child's education to be designed just for that child.

  • Integrated and consistent education. Because a homeschooled child's education is managed by the same person over a long period of time, that education can be consistent with a long-term plan in which each topic taught and the experience gained benefits seamlessly with those that have come before. Because the parent is intimately involved with the student over that student's life, the parent understands the child's experiences and background and uses that knowledge to design future educational activities.

  • Better teaching materials. Homeschoolers have access to the best teaching materials available. And, teaching materials can be selected based on a child's individual needs and capabilities."

My argument was based on school children just listening to music, and whether or not music helped them learn better. I never mentioned homeschooling at all, not also to mention you did not back up your argument enough. All you talked about was how homeschooling affected education, not whether or not music was good for kids to help them study. I'm sorry but your argument is completely irrelevant not also to mention not original.

You have yet to prove that music helps children at school.

I have explained that they should be homeschooled instead.

Okay, here is my evidence. Many studies show classical music helps students study more, and get more focused in their work. I have not mentioned anything about home schooling yet because this is not what this debate is about. Studies also show that music that is catchy means that the students can't focus as well, therefore they are not as focused.

Since Pro has failed to defend the going to school in the first place against my proof to switch to learning from home, Pro has not upheld the resolution.
