Luke, I just wrote an article about the COVID-19. I am so interested in your essay. I know American stranded for freedom. But before we achieve the American dreams, we have to keep our life healthy. I think American dreams and our health having the same status.
Hey Kira, I enjoyed reading your post about mental health. I feel like it is a very prominent subject that needs to be taken seriously. Many people that I personally know struggle with mental health, after reading this post I have learned more things about it. I found this article that relates to your post check it out,…[Read more]
Hey Kaya, I found your post very interesting because of how I can relate. School and other distractions often effect my sleeping schedule.

More than 70% of men in the world’s top 200 have earned more than their female counterparts in 2018. Just like everywhere else and in all sports there is a difference in the wage gap made by male and female p
Dear Luke, I strongly agree with your thoughts on the wage gap in sports, because I believe women are working just as hard as men, therefore they should be paid equally. Here is a website that talks more about the wage gap between men and women in sports.
Dear Luke, I honestly dont know much about tennis or how they distribute the pay between the players, but I do understand the UFC. The ultimate fighting competition I feel is a great example of equal pay in the world of sports. The fighters each get paid based on how much money they bring in, not on how much the commissioner decides is enough. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2843111-dana-white-talks-uswnt-pay-dispute-growth-of-womens-mma-in-ufc This is a cool video of Dana White (the owner of the UFC) talking about equal pay and how Ronda Rousey made a ton of money fighting because of the fact that people loved watching her. She helped bring in a ton of money for the UFC and was paid because of her performance in the octagon. I dont know if this is the same in all sports but another good example in the WNBA VS. the NBA. The WNBA brings in significant less viewers so of course they arent going to make as much as NBA players. I wish to do more research on this topic but thank you for writing about this. -samuel
Hey max, I really liked you take on gun control, having written my post on gun control a couple weeks ago. How you went into deeper explanation of gun control was most interesting because to many people do not understand gun control completely. I found an article that goes into more about gun control that you might find interesting,…[Read more]
Everyone has the right to healthcare. Healthcare is a necessity and no one should be denied it. Eight percent of the U.S. population do not have health insurance, that is over twenty eight million people. The
HI Luke I am very agree with your opion about the right to helath care. I believe for everyone have access to good health care system is very necessary.

Hey Luke, I did a discussion on health care as well, and I totally agree with all of your points. One thing I think you could’ve added is more examples of health care situations so we can get a better idea. Here is a website I think might interest you. 🙂 https://www.modernhealthcare.com/

The next topic is gun control, because of how controversial it has been. Gun control has been a recent topic due to the increase in mass shootings over the last couple of years. The benefits of stricter gun
Hi Luke, I like your post very much. Gun control is indeed a problem. If guns are free, it may pose a threat to the campus, and it may be impossible to kill someone because of anger. This link may be helpful to you https://www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp
Hey Luke I would have to agree that it is hard to make any decisions when talking about a topic as controversial as gun control, so i found this article to maybe get you to think about it on both sides of the playing field. here the link https://gun-control.procon.org/
Katie, I strongly agree with your argument that school should not be allowed to limit students online speech. Schools should not have the right to intervene with your personal views especially if your not on school property. I found a presentation that relates to your topic…[Read more]

Gene editing is highly controversial, this process would take place in babies and would remove all unwanted genes from a child and possibly add favorable genes. I picked out two articles that focus on the
This is an amazing topic to write and read about, due to the fact that this is a leap forward in technology and science. But it does come with some foreseeable consequences in the future. As you said, due to these new “superior” genetics this could cause more issues than it does fix anything. The first problem that would most likely be faced is that something goes wrong, hurting the family and the children involved with the experiment. Secondly, one of the worsted issues in our society is the inequality and discrimination of others. This can make these two issues blow out of proportion. As much as this would be a fantastic idea for medical science, the moral conflict heavily outweighs the positives as of right now.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
