I love the topic, but I can't seem to come up with a final response without writing a million pages about both sides after re-organizing our whole education system. The 8 example essay I don't think is very good or helpful, so what would you guys put?
What I'm thinking...
-Gives a chance for students to choose areas of interest and thrive. Kids are free (i.e., democracy)
-Eliminates strict school policies.
-Ppl who aren't motivated won't succeed, and won't have required citizen knowledge, often this is result of lack of parent encouragement so not kid's fault (or necessarily parent's fault, i.e., if they work a lot).
-For me, at least, I sometimes find it difficult to stay focused when there isn't any pressing deadlines or w/e (during winter break).
-Ppl are too young to make decisions, ex for classes, b/c they don't have clear idea of interests. And that's what college is for.
-Eliminates cons of individualism, basically
-Produces at least somewhat adequate citizens, as the prompt says
-People can be social. If everyone takes different classes at different times, and w/ different schedules, people are isolated from others.
-Already have teachers n system pretty much in place.
-Suppresses advanced students if system isn't well-layed out and flexible.
-Makes potentially great students in one area take classes that are useless and waste of time (art, lol).
Had some others, but forgot. Anyways, so what would you guys write about (maybe give a short outline?)?
