The role of school or college in cultivating students

January 11th, 2018

The statement is flawed due to its downplaying the role of school or college in cultivating students, as far as I am concerned. It's reasonable to associate personal discipline with great significance concerning learning knowledge, but there are still considerable students lacking motivation in need of timely and appropriate guidance from their teachers as well as probing curricula designed by the school. Therefore, personal discipline doesn't necessarily weaken / undermine the importance of school when considering students' learning. Meanwhile, school and college should also provide students with certain freedom to pursue their own interest.

However, the author's reasoning is not cogent enough to champion his claim to prohibit skateboarding in the Central Plaza. When considering reasons that incur the decline of customers, the author doesn't make a comprehensive investigation and take the Plaza store owners statement for credit without questioning. And the author concentrates so much on skateboarding that litter and vandalism have been associated with skateboarding, which leads to the author's arbitrary conclusion that prohibiting skateboarding in the Plaza can be the panacea.
