In the last blog post we reported on a debate we held during Book for Breakfast looking for evidence that school has changed radically in the last century. In contrast, this post presents the views opposing the motion:
This house believes that Dashwood has undergone a revolution in the last hundred years.
The last post showed that lots of things have changed since Dashwood was built – from the location of the school itself, with its outdoor toilets, to the fact that one hundred years ago, girls and boys played and learned separately. So what arguments did the opposition gather to counter these arguments?
Anastazja pointed out that the school badges were similar now to then – and the school colours are still green and gold.
Anastazja also said that we still have assembly today, and that the subjects of lessons are similar.
Ellis summarised his team’s points and added that school uniform is still compulsory, as it was a century ago.
So who do you think made the best arguments – or what evidence do you feel really shows that school has changed, or is essentially similar to one hundred years ago?
