Some people claim that many things children are taught at school are a waste of time. Other people argue that everything children study at school is useful at some time. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Many critics claim that some subjects taught in educational centres are just marking time and are not useful to the student. However, the counter argument suggests that education is the key for the all-round development of children.
Firstly, the main argument is that teaching all subjects in school wastes time because the system pressurises students to succeed and consequently stunts the scholars growth and development. For instance, these critics will point to subjects such as Art or Music and label them as frivolous and time-wasting. Furthermore, by being overburdened with assignments to complete and other homework activities they are unable to participate in other sports and recreational events. Last but not least, educators recognise that all students are unique and have different interests and abilities which can be retarded if they have to study all subjects.
On the contrary, other commentators suggest that education is a key factor in the on-going development of the student. They underline the fact that every subject has its own importance and pupils will take-away knowledge useful for their future. For example, they argue that Arts and Humanity subjects are just as important as the hard sciences and Mathematics. Furthermore, a well-rounded student having learnt multiple subjects throughout their educational career will be seen as a suitable candidate by employers in their chosen occupation in the future.
In conclusion, my personal opinion is that the all-round development of scholars is only possible when the educational institutions provide them with a wide range of learning opportunities.
