Some people believe that children should learn science in school, others think that it is not necessary to include science in general education. Do you agree or disagree with the statement? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
There are an important discussion whether children have to study science or not at school. From the point of view of some people it is not necessary, while others think it is essential for young students’ education, both for their future as part of society and their present to discover fundamental things about life and world.
It is pivotal to remember that school’s aim is prepare children and adolescents for future in order to help them to become a well educated people, and showing them as much element as it is possible to support students in their way to understand what they want to do during their adulthood ages. In this way, science is an important subject.
Furthermore, science is a way to understand some reason of common events in a wide range of life. For example, it is throughout science that we know how a baby is conceived, the world’s beginning or why sky is blue. It is often children ask about these matters; I cannot imagine a reason to close the door of the science’s knowledge to anybody less to a child.
Nevertheless, when a debate is open that is why it is important for someone and the best way to build a strong idea is doing an effort to understand reasons of people who think in a different way. So I can only find a religion reason for this discussion; religion have a high importance on people’s life; however school education is another subject.
In conclusion, science is an essential topic to be taught at school. Moreover, presently it is accepted that school and church are different part of people formation, and each one must keep its space without interfering on the place of the other.
