Agree
I agree. I think the issue is especially important when discussing the death penalty, as taking another human life won't solve any previous problems and as you said, the focus should be on rehabilitating the prisoner.

Agree
I agree. I don't think society should be able to decide when to take the life of another human being, especially when the decision relies on flawed examinations and judgement calls.

Agree
I agree as well. I don't think that this is something that is usually brought up, and it's important for people to remember that those who commit crimes may not be stopped by the death penalty as it's not something they consider beforehand.

Agree
I agree with what you're saying. This wasn't a point I had previously considered, but I think it would be very smart to lower the age requirement in order to provide preventative treatment, as it could improve the health of those affected.

No
Standardized tests should not be used to gauge school performance, as the way in which children learn can differ dramatically. As some learn better from hands-on learning, for example, it would be unfair to test them on their ability to regurgitate information. Additionally, some kids test better than others, and it does not make sense to standardize learning, as it is so different from person to person.
