一 教育类
    1. A nation should require all its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college rather than allow schools in different parts of the nation to determine which academic courses to offer.

    2. While some leaders in government, sports, industry, and other areas attribute their success to a well-developed sense of competition, a society can better prepare its young people for leadership by instilling1 in them a sense of cooperation.

    3. In order to improve the quality of instruction at the college and university level, all faculty2 should be required to spend time working outside the academic world in professions relevant to the courses they teach.

    4. Universities should require every student to take a variety of courses outside the student's field of study because acquiring knowledge of various academic disciplines is the best way to become truly educated.

    5. Colleges and universities should offer more courses on popular music, film, advertising3, and television because contemporary culture has much greater relevance4 for students than do arts and literature of the past.

    6. It is primarily through formal education that a culture tries to perpetuate5 the ideas it favors and discredit6 the ideas it fears.

    7. Some educational systems emphasize the development of students' capacity for reasoning and logical thinking, but students would benefit more from an education that also taught them to explore their own emotions.

    8. It is often asserted that the purpose of education is to free the mind and the spirit. In reality, however, formal education tends to restrain our minds and spirits rather than set them free.

    9. How children are socialized today determines the destiny of society. Unfortunately, we have not yet learned how to raise children who can help bring about a better society.

    10. Both parents and communities must be involved in the local schools. Education is too important to leave solely7 to a group of professional educators.

    11. The purpose of education should be to provide students with a value system, a standard, a set of ideas-not to prepare them for a specific job.

    12. Society should identify those children who have special talents and abilities and begin training them at an early age so that they can eventually excel in their areas of ability. Othervise, these talents are likely to remain undeveloped.

    13. Although innovations such as video, computers, and the internet seem to offer schools improved methods for instructing students, these technologies all too often distract from real learning.
