People’s opinions differ as to whether or not school children should be given choices of studying their favourite subjects until the age of ten. While there are some arguments against studying in early age should be arranged with all mandatory subjects in school, I still believe that the compulsory courses are necessary in the early education.
There are reasons why people might agree that feeling freely to select subjects that one’s interested have advantages in education environment. Firstly, school children have motivations to learn their chosen courses. There is evidence to support the idea that those students under the age of ten generally lose curiosity quickly when they are being forced to study. Therefore, by participating student’s favourite courses, they can be motivated to achieve higher scores. Another reason is some parents would agree that school children are carrying too much burden from academic education, especially those who under the age of ten and they do not know how to release stresses. So, students should be able to choose their subjects to have their own schedules.
In spite of the above arguments, I support the view that the mandatory subjects have an important role to play in the schooling of students. Firstly, the main benefit of the mandatory subjects is that it develops children’s brain in their early years. It is a critical period as they learn incredible number of skills and amount of information that they will need to function throughout the rest of their lives. Besides, learning all the compulsive curriculums will help ensure them master sufficient knowledge for their daily life. For instance, a math course teaches students about different types of calculation and understanding of the concepts. In my view, it is important for school children to have perspective of numeracy skill and other information because these are the basic knowledge in education.
In conclusion, I believe that school children learn all mandatory subjects in school below the age of ten has its drawbacks, but I believe there are an arrange of essential knowledge for them to understand and develop their brains in the early period.
