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.


While science is important to our society, people have mixed views on whether it should be included in general. I believe it is not necessarily to ask children learn science in school.


The primary benefit of learning science is, as some people argue, that science can encourage children to explore the world they live in, and motivate them to learn. Theoretically, it seems reasonable. But in reality it involves practical problems. Actually, most science classes are not stimulating at all. Teachers only impart knowledge in textbooks to students and there are no experiments or some other activities that can motivate children. In addition, the exams of science are always difficult. That is why science classes are not as popular among students as people suppose.


Another reason to include science in general education is that whether students like it or not, they can actually learn how to think logically and how to analyse problems from science. However, we must concede that it is not the only approach to learn those things. We can also acquire these skills from many other subjects, such as history or geography, which include logical thinking as well. What’s more, people haven’t attended science classes are not impeded by that. They can cope with things well.


Further, if we are really interested in science, we can learn it from the Internet or some TV programmes, which is much more appealing than science classes taught in school.


In conclusion, I believe we do not have to learn science in school by reason that the way of teaching is not fascinating and most children lose interests.
