Question and answer
Q: A debate to against the motion" boarding school are better than day school"
A: Boarding school students are, in many ways, just like their high school counterparts at your local school. Boarding school students spend most of their day at school, followed by sports or gym, and extracurricular activities later in the day. [ They spend most of their evening hours engaged in homework, but have more free time on the weekends, when there are additional activities available to
them, including off-campus excursions and events. Some ways that students at boarding schools are frequently, but not always, different from their day student counterparts is that they spend more time studying and less time watching TV and playing video games. They simply don?t have time. And much of their non-school hours are engaged in activities, rather than just relaxing. Many boarding school students develop talents and skills that they hone and apply at school, such as by joining a sports team or concentrating on preparing a portfolio of photography work. Students can work independently on their craft while still overseen and guided by their instructors, who often live on campus, too. Most boarding school students are ambitious, social, independent, self-confident and disciplined. They are, for the most part, college oriented, with their eye on some of the most prestigious colleges and universities around ? perhaps more so than the typical high school student. ]

Children learn and develop, not only in schools or when they are engaged in formal studies.The whole life of children, including the time they spend in their homes and with their friends for purposes other than studies, adds to their education and development.

Main impact of boarding school as compared to day schools is that it replaces the care and learning children receive at homes and with their parents and family with that of residential facilities of boarding school.

I see the residential facilities, environment and associate development of child offered by boarding schools has a distinct advantage over homes only in limited cases where for some reasons the homes cannot offer the love, security, and parental guidance typically associated with it. In some cases, the formal education becomes the main consideration. For example when parents are living in some foreign country on a temporary assignment or if they are transferred frequently, boarding schools offer a better formal education. It also eliminates need for changing schools frequently, which can put additional psychological pressure on tender minds of young children.
