Key point being the fact that America has no set religion therefore schools should not teach only evolution, or only creationism. Both should be taught, or neither should be taught. Schools cannot teach neither though because there is valuable knowledge in both. During the trial Scopes said “... violation of my ideal of academic freedom-that is, to teach the truth as guaranteed in our constitution of personal and religious freedom”(“Scopes”). John Scopes had a very eye opening point; stating that he can believe whatever he wants to believe in because he has those rights granted by the Constitution.
In other words, they have eliminated the supernatural and replaced it with naturalism. In reality, they have eliminated the Christian worldview and replaced it with a secular, atheistic one! The moment in time that Ham’s fingertips typed the words,“unproven natural processes,” his argument became invalid. Evolution is a highly esteemed field of science with mounds of evidence supporting it. The scientific community is finding new evidence for evolution and a natural biogenesis daily.
Children need be be taught both sides and then decide for themselves what they think. By teaching students only one side, the teachers are brainwashing minors. Teaching both sides provides a well-rounded education, which allows them to choose what they believe. Karl Smallwood once said, “Creationism and other such belief systems inspire debate and encourage children to articulate thoughts that help them develop skills that simply cannot be gained through a strictly academic education. Humans could not have evolved over eons of years without there being a God over the universe” (Reasons Creation Should be Taught in School).
So examining further the foundations elemental secular government becomes not just a matter of gently logical opinion but one of extreme political and practical desperation (Harris). "Theistic Evolutionists" believe that God conducted evolution over millions of years but only seven percent out of the thirty-nine percent thought themselves as "Darwinists", who believe that God played no role in either creation or evolution. These two groups further prove that contradicting ideas and theories can live amongst one another in peace (“American Decades”). In conclusion, secular and sacred groups have proved to have conflicts in the past and present but they also have proven that they can coexist
After all, education should come first at schools. Schools don 't want to charge for sports, but many have to. " This shows that the schools spend more money on our school supplies so that we can learn but when it comes time to get sports equipment it 's time for parents to help. In the text, it said “ Gary Frisch, a school
Abstract Slavery provided America with a wide range of labor, and fortune. Ideals from Christianity, and Revolution forced many to grapple with the idea of ending it. Throughout the antebellum era politicians debated the merits allowing the people of territories themselves to decide whether slavery would be prohibited or permitted. This solution created a host of problems. From the establishment of the Northwest and Southwest territories, to the Louisiana Purchase, the annexation of Texas, the acquisition of the Mexican Cession, and finally the debate over Kansas and Nebraska, the extension of slavery confounded politicians.
He stated and gave many examples to try and prove his point through. In many ways I agree with him, students should do what they are interested in, but some may be lazy and not do anything which is why they might need that help that teachers provide. At the end of the day I think teachers do feel like they taught at least one person something new that day which might help them out with their future college path or occupations. But, at the same time I disagree because I think most should attend school not just for their grades and their parents, but also for themselves. Just knowing what is going on around you gets you feeling
In American History, we are currently studying the concept of sectionalism. Sectionalism is the division within a country based on regional beliefs and interests. In the early-mid 1800’s, sectionalism in America grew as slavery divided the Nation. Slavery was ignored, compromised, and argued about by the states until the conflict drove our country into the Civil War. Although regional differences are not as distinct these days, many issues are currently causing division among the states and people of our country.
For example, a child coming from a non-educated family will have to abide by the liberal state and complete their high school education. This experience will be monumental in opening up a new world of opportunity for the child. Even though the state remains neutral about the lifestyle the child chooses, the now educated choice that will be made ensures a diverse future. The child’s right to an open future will remain in tact and keeping the child in school reaps only benefit for their life moving
Instead of facilitating the growth of students brain processes and encouraging their new ideas, schools are training them to take test and answer questions like robots. Our country can not expect children to want to learn if they aren’t taught properly. It’s been a commonplace stereotype in our society that school is unenjoyable; that you have to go but you’re not supposed to like it. And if you do like school
