I had a little problem with time (30 minitues) and some parts of the essay may show some lack of development and examples. I realized also that I used "high school" many times in the first paragraph.
It has recently been announced that a new high school may be built
in your community. Do you support or oppose this plan? Why? Use
specific reasons and details in your answer.
A very known catchphrase states that “knowledge doesn’t occupy space”. In this sense, I would say that ever there will be opportunities for new schools. I, thus, support the building of a new high school. There are a lot of positive things that are a new high school can bring and a only a few problems.
Nowadays, there are several differents approaches for education. A new high school can, much more than a older school, bring the live new ideas and approaches. Olders schools are generally stuck in tradicional methods and, if the system is working out propertly, there is no problem with it. However, any new high school has a big opportunity to start things in different ways and, in this sense, is much more free to experiment new ideas. For example, I am a student from Universidade ____________, a brand new university (it has only about 5 years of existence). People who have thinked about how Universidade _______ would works had the opportunity to introduce things that doesn’t exist in any other university of Brazil, like interdisciplinary courses, new subjects and so son. On the other hand, the olders universities, although having a impressive reputation, struggle to introduce these differents views.
In addition to the possibility of different approaches, I believe that the building of a new high school is positive because it can employ more people and supply the demand for education that exists in the community. In fact, where I live, there are a lot of teachers searching jobs due to the lack of schools. Even those who aren’t directly linked with the education area have sometimes to be employes in distant areas because there are not many offers for jobs in my neighborhood. So, the creation of a new school can employ not only teachers, but many other professionals.
Some people say that we need to stop building new schools and focus in the quality of the schoolds that already exists. It seems to me, however, that it is a mistake. A new school can bring more competition between the others and, so, get better the educational system.
So, all things considered, I think that the building of a new high school is a good event for the community and should be supported by people who live in the neighborhood.
