Making Your Own Decisions: Adults Should Keep Their Personal Opinions Away From Children

Making Your Own Decisions: Adults Should Keep Their Personal Opinions Away From Children

April 25, 2019

By Daniel Isacksen Children should be given space to form their own opinions without influence from their parents or other adults. Children are like sponges when it comes to learning new information, and when their parents show a clear bias when discussing ideas on politics or other topics, they tend to...

  Teachers play a huge role in students day-to-day lives. Students spend about one-third of their time at school being taught and influenced by their teachers. Many teachers have vastly different teaching methods. While some like being practical and really letting their students work with th...

Dear Editor, I read ‘Nonla Burger: A Retro Sit-Down with A Modern Twist’ by Abigail Lindblade. I liked the article because it was about food of course. I also liked it because it gave me an idea on a new restaurant to eat at. Lindblade persuaded me to make me want to try this restaurant immediately. Wha...

Dear Editor, I have read the article, “The Good Boys of Norrix,” and I am confused as to the purpose of the article. The article was titled, “The Good Boys of Norrix,” but it did not describe anything noticeably “good” about the dogs. The title itself does not imply worth reporting; almost ev...

Dear Editor, I read Knights Speak in the newspaper. I liked how it included everyone’s opinions and didn’t put any bias. I like this because everyone should have a voice here.

June 5, 2018

Dear Editor, When reading mental illness in school and the unheard pleas for help I thought the article addressed the more taboo topics most people avoid talking about. I thought the author went about addressing the topics and how a lot of teens really do feel very well. The only thing I would have l...

Dear Editor, I liked the article about teachers having and not having guns. I thought it was interesting to see the claims and argument they would have. I like the one saying teachers should not have guns because I agree with them. I like how they both had articles side by side like if it was a comp...

Dear Editor, I read the Knight’s Speak opinions about the walk protest. I really liked the answer choices, because they really captivated the thoughts of those who protested and of who opted-out. I know now that I opt-out for the same reason as others. But now that I read other opinions to protest...

Dear Editor, I really enjoyed your piece on the People's Choice Awards. It was a good representation of the concept, and really shows what the awards are all about. I believe that the awards gave a good recognition to those who may deserve it but don't necessarily get it. I also believe that the awa...

Friendship and Politics Shouldn't Mix

Friendship and Politics Shouldn't Mix

Isaac Rubin

“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend,” said Thomas Jefferson. This quote by Thomas Jefferson is the mindset you need going forward in life. Just because a person disagrees with you politically doesn't make them ...

Letter to the Editor – Nov. 9, 2016

November 9, 2016

Dear Editor, I am proud that all of our varsity football players stand by choice for the National Anthem. I do feel if a person does not stand, it is showing disrespect for our country and the people in the military that have lost their lives and those still serving. I come from a strong military family,...
