Debate number 3 school should no longer teach skills that can easily be carried out by technology in my vote I disagree the article quote school is boring and irrelevant UN quote the students need innovative skills and need motivation to succeed they also need to be competitive in a globalized workforce they need to be able to create and be apart of innovative driven economy end. The old school ways are in today’s society vintage but vintage is worth money today old way of school with every aspect of sub subject of learning needs to be brought back.

It was a great debate and I learned some new terminology and I learn some new ideas and I was very grateful for all the information thank you
