20.“Some people think that pupils should be involved in decisions about their school and should have a say in how things are run. Other people think that pupils are too young to take part in such important decisions.”
Nowadays more and more people think that pupils should take part in making decisions about their school life . Other people believe that pupils won`t be able to cope with such difficulties .
On the one hand, it is a good idea to allow pupils to participate in the management of the school. There is no doubt that every schoolchild should be aware of his/her significant role in life , and active participation in the school activities will teach them to gain experience and be successful in future. Some schools set up School Soviets which help the school staff solve different school problems. It will also help school pupils make up their mind in different situations.
On the other hand, there are some people who are sure that pupils are not ready to make important
decisions. They are not able to delegate tasks, so they can be overworked and be at a loss. Moreover, they can fail to demand the job to be well done under some circumstances.
In my opinion, being involved in running the school helps pupils develop managerial skills and not to give up.
Finally, I should say that freedom of speech is very important when you are at school, as it gives pupils the right to express their own opinion. ( 220)
