that is probably true. other country's schools are often much more authoritarian.

There is nothing illegal, kids just choice which is the best mask, but still that's not some serious things, when it's about something serious, kids can give advice.

kids still learning about society are entitled to an opinion, they are not entitled to making decisions.

yes, lets give them a vote. cake everyday for lunch. double recess. no more math.
they are here for school, not playtime.

for insignificant decisions they have a student council to *practice* making decisions. this has already been mentioned.

That is not related to democracy at all. If the people vote against such a thing, then it would be illegal.

Yes, but not in serious things in school, I think that kids can vote on carnival, when it's school carnival kids can vote for best mask, but when it's something serious kids can just give advice.

Democracy is not just voting, democracy mean to have a right to telling our thinking, to dress how we wants. You must go on Google and read what is democracy and than talking about democracy

You said, "Democracy must be everywhere," implying that a democracy should be implemented for students in schools. I don't understand what you're arguing for other than things that are already in place? i.e. students being able to make suggestions and report issues to faculty

And again I say read my argument, because I said PEOPLE HAVE RIGHT TO CHOICE, I didn't say kids have right to choice in school between ice cream or something else.

You said democracy; democracy = voting.

And, the students can already give suggestions and complaints to faculty members in every school I've ever seen, so I'm not sure what your arguing?

I don't say that kids can vote, I say that kids can give advices to director on students conference, that would be great for kids, and that will learn kids to think about some serious problems, but kids won't making decision, just talking about problems and giving advices for solving that problems, maybe one of kids will give good advice, kids are creativity. First you must to read what was I wrote, than you can write an argument. In all of this arguments, not at one point I didn't say that kids can vote, just giving advices. Get relaxed and read carefully.

1) Democracy almost always turns to mob rule that will crush minority groups. Constitutional republic is way better and near ideal
2) Should children be allowed to vote in the presidential election? If not, why would we allow them to vote on school matters without reign?/what age are you proposing we introduce a democracy within schools?
3) If we introduce a complete democracy within schools, how long do you think it will take before ice cream is every lunch and schoolwork is non-existent?

They are children and, despite them thinking that they know best, they don't. The adults must guide them the right way, not allow them free reign on how the school runs. If there's an issue with the bathroom, any student can tell a faculty member and it will (or should) be fixed.

Also, you have a natural right to choose, yeah, but you don't have a legal right. You can't do whatever you want to do, but that seems to be what you're advocating for.

Are yout saying that there should be a democracy within schools?

That's not privilege, that's just listening an advices from someone who is 8 hours a day in that school, he know every meter of school and he know the relations among the students better than director.

That's just sounds like an ASB which most middle and high schools, at least in America, do have. Also, that shouldn't be a right? That is a privilege

Students should have conference once a month and there they can say to director what would be great to have in school or what is problem in school (like toilet,fixing boards) and school would be better, it will be custom made for students but it still students must working and doing homework.
